Have a great time! Hopefully you live in a warmer climate than I am in - 4-8 inches of snow due in the next 24 hours.

The North has had a terrible, terrible winter, and then there was Sandy for the Northeast in addition to all of the snow. We've had a few incredibly scary tornado warnings here in the Georgia this winter, but apart from that we cannot complain in comparison. Our winter has been nice and mild and we've had some drought busting rains.

Aww how mean y did he get mad? Every kid is told not to get into cars with strangers. When I was a kid they told parents to make up a safe word in case another adult had to pick up their child.

I'm intrigued as to what count as a "current event" these days. There's very little to say about Catherine apparently shopping in Anglessey. I think lines are being blurred.

If what Kate is doing is shopping in Anglesey, I suppose that is her current event. If Camilla popped into the local supermarket to pick up a few groceries, I think that would find its way onto her current events page. Actually the idea invites an interesting comparison between the two.

Hmmm, an activity or errands as opposed to an event?

Yep, it's an activity rather than an event, but if someone sees her doing it, and especially if there are photographs, we're going to find out about it. One of the downsides of modern social media.

I think any such comparison might simply be in that when Catherine is shopping people go to twitter while they don't notice Camilla.

Or it could be that as a former-commoner, Catherine's more used to being able to go out and about and so continues to do so at this point in the game, while as someone who's been in the public eye for a very long time at this point, Camilla avoids such public excursions so as to not draw further attention.

Maybe its just me but Kate spotting as opposed to her current events seem to be like the difference between watching programs (and there's lots of them) about spotting Bigfoot and watching CNN news.

Those that twitter sightings of Kate out shopping, buying coffee or at a gas station is really low level and I would put it down to being excited about actually seeing her. I'm happy for those that have had the chance to see her but it doesn't make my day to hear about it. Official engagements and events are reported more as her Duchess of Cambridge role and what I'm more interested in.

Different strokes for different folks.

I totally get what you're saying here - and agree - but as the twitter feed for whenever Harry's spotted in public gets posted in his current events, I can't harp on people for doing so with Catherine.

Some people get excited about it, others don't.

It think it is a strong possibility that the people who do tweet from their phones tend to be young and young people tend to only notice other young people and "old" women like Camilla just don't register on their radar. It also could be that Camilla is a frequent visitor to her local shops, but that the people who see her respect her privacy and when she does nip in to pick up a sponge for afternoon tea with the grandchildren people know she's there but leave her alone.

I get your point. I posted it here simply because it seemed the most appropriate of the EXISTING threads. Maybe creating a new one just for twitter or sightings or something like that and leave this one just for official events, royals duties, if you know what I mean...

Or maybe people are not interested in the twitter feed at all and there is no point in keeping posting them? If that's the case, let me know

I think its relevant to this thread - it means we know where she is. I also think that yet another thread would be just too much.

Thank you for posting the information

I agree - no need for a Cambridge bread, milk and cheese shopping thread.

Thanks for posting the info, Juliette, after all it's always nice to see the Duchess out and about town even if it's for a Starbucks run! Glad to see she's back in Anglesey, too.

Camilla gets spotted out and about once in awhile. I don't think pay much attention to her though.

Other than the paps, Catherine is left alone while she run her errands. I think that's best.

I'd venture she's happy to be back in the quiet of Anglesey.
