IF news of a pregnancy should be announced by the royal family, it might prove difficult to chill out under the radar.

You are probably right, however since "everyone" seems keen not to let the past repeat itself, I don't think that we will see the media frenzy that one might expect, at least I don't think it will be as pervasive as it could be. The press has shown restraint, in as much as we haven't seen pictures of them around Angelsey (I recall seing a few pictures just after the wedding, but that's all). I hope that they are left alone to enjoy life as newlyweds, and if and when Kate becomes pregnant that she won't be hounded.

Lets not speculate on a pregnancy. If and when it happens, it will be discussed at that time, in a separate thread.

Thanks!

Seems as though Catherine wanted to see Bridesmaids, and William wanted to see Transformers. Catherine won.

Can't these two get a break? They're not on a royal duty/walk-about. I feel that it's extremely intrusive to post stuff like this over the web. You saw them, great, but do be considerate and let them breathe.

Sorry. Just had to get that out there.

The rant wasn't directed towards you at all . I'm sorry if it came off as such. No need to remove the post. My little rant was directed at those who have no idea how to respect the privacy of others. When it comes for the press, it's one thing (the get paid for it, doesn't make it right, but hopefully you get where I'm coming from), however, when those not associated with the press start pulling this, I get a little ticked. These two get enough attention from the press, would be respectful if their fans won't go and babble.

And as for the cuteness factor, I agree. It's great that they were able to go and see the film.

Ah ookay good just checkin! Ya I know but in a sense I can understand the shock factor. I mean can you imagine walking into a theatre and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are in there. I'd have flipped course still your right they shouldn't go out and blab it to the world. I think isn't that how the photos of Kate at the supermarket came to be someone saw her a local and called the papz? Or least that's what I heard.

To be honest, if I were at a theater and they walked in, I'd probably send out a tweet. I wouldn't go out and say where we were, but the shock of seeing them would definitely propel me to share on my social media sites. There's nothing wrong with mentioning you saw them, and I wouldn't be snapping photos or trying to overhear conversations. It's exciting. Nothing wrong with that.

That is the fault with things like Twitter, it is a avenue to invade the privacy of others. I don't see why people cannot wait until they get home and get in conversation with their friends and then "spill the beans", but these days with this kind of media everyone one wants to be "the first" to get the news out. And it is very bad when the person tells where they are. At least for Will and Kate I would think they had someone with them for protection.

I would so be posting that in Facebook after I got home (I hope I'd wait until after I got home).

Truth be told, I wouldn't enjoy the movie if the duke and duchess were in the same theater as me as I'd be thinking about how to meet them or even try to make eye contact with them. I get star struck so easily.

Honestly you did not want to see me when I met Camilla no honestly it was like someone had paralyzed my speech. I couldn't put anything together so if it was the Duke and Duchess it'd just be 1000X worse I prob wouldn't even be able to think let alone get a word out.

That'll make the two of us then. I'll probably be standing there, opening and closing my mouth, and attempting to at least get a 'hello' out. My friend jokes that when (and if) I'll meet these two, I'll say something like 'Your Royal Hinny' out of pure nerves. I hope not, because that will just add to more mortification (since gaping like a fish is not merely enough).

I wasn't sure if this should go here, or in the 'Visit to LA' thread, so feel free to move if necessary.

Anyway, if this is true, then we get yet another glimpse into how 'down-to-earth' these two really are.

ZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I'm a huge fan of both of them with (until now) a seemingly limitless appetite for all things Kate & William, but this is probably the most boring and utterly useless thing I have ever read. How weird and creepy that this is printworthy and how pitiful that "they felt it would be inappropriate to take duty free booze". Has the intense scrutiny turned them into such extreme goody goodies?

I honestly don't understand why you get so worked up about this...

I wouldn't say that they are being goody goodies so much as they don't need the extra attention that this has brought or the extra money.

And this is another example of they can't win for nothing. There is no pleasing anyone these days. If you go by the comments in the Daily Mail by the readers who think they don't deserve the compensation (because BA didn't offer it to them in similiar situation) and that the benefits should be donated. I mean really?! Did they ask for the money or the press? Probably not.

I agree especially with the parts I highlighted.
