what is possible for May is attendance at the Garden Parties at BP and possibly (but it would be a 1st) the Chelsea Flower Show which members of the BRF attend every year.

Plus as Kathia Sophia said, shor notice engagements are generally the norm.

I really do not understand why people keep comparing Kate to Diana. Apart from the fact they are fecund females who married into the BRF at a very high level and who, at the time of their marriage, both expected to eventually become Queen Consort, the two women have very little in common, IMO.

I agree...Diana and Kate are worlds apart on many levels.

Well, you've provided more reason for comparison than existed between Diana and Sarah at the time of their marriages, and yet that comparison lasted for a good while.

Diana and Sarah were at least contemporaries, both on the scene and married to the Queen's sons at the same time, and photographed together. I think there was far more reason to compare them. Diana and Kate are separated by time, generation, age and education, so there is far less reason to compare them, IMO. Not that I think the comparisons will ever stop, mind you.

The comparisons were going to happen regardless the circumstances. Both William & Catherine knew this and their families as well. I don't think they let the comparisons bother them. Catherine is doing her own thing and I think that's where her focus is now. I do think Catherine draws a little inspiration from her late mother-in-law though.

To me, Diana was Diana, Kate is Kate. I admire Kate for Kate, and Diana for Diana.

I hate the comparisons as well, wish people would get over Diana and allow Kate to be herself.

I know she just had her last engagement last week, but it feels like ages already. I think I'm turning into a Catherine addicted.
