And can I just add that William looks quite handsome and even more intelligent in glasses? He has that sophisticated air of a university professor. It suits him.

Great photos, Ghost night! Prince William wears glasses? And I love that deep shade of purple on Kate; she needs to wear those jewel colors more often. And, of course, the handholding; so nice to see the affection between the two.

Nice photos, but I have to say Kate must be thin as a rail in person.

And what's scary is that the camera adds pounds to your figure, so she's got to be really extremely thin.

She is no thinner than any top model and still shows a normal size breast. Lucky her!

She was also spotted at the grocery store. I posted the picture in the Duchess' current events thread

I was wondering why it looked so familiar .

Here are bigger pictures that were taken when William and Catherine were walking in Scotland.

Just posted those on another thread. No matter.

When I looked closer at these pictures, I noticed how tired they both appear. Catherine more than William. I think the next couple of months off will do them both a world of wonders.

Since it was a fav of the brides, the Velveteen Rabbit (sorry I spelt wrong), and her wedding I assume it was Zara's idea

Possibly because these were taken morning after Zara's all night reception too....

Interesting that William is in the military and flying helicopters with eyesight that needs correction.

Surprised to see William with glasses (because of him being a pilot).
They look good on him though.

I know that in the US Air Force you can be 20/50 uncorrected and just required to wear your glasses (giving you 20/20) every time you fly. So perhaps William's eyesight is not bad enough to disqualify him in that respect. Though then we would expect to see him with glasses in every picture of him as a pilot, and I don't know if we have. Also, I was under the impression that it was more colour-blindness that was an ultimate disqualification...

If there was a real problem, I doubt William would be permitted to fly. It would put him, his co-workers and the public at risk, something nobody wants.

There is no disqualification in the UK military for not having perfect eyesight. Entry to the RAF from civilian life one needs to pass an eyetest, but if you transfer from another branch of the military to the RAF (as William did, from the army) there is no requirement for perfect eyesight. The RAF even have regulation glasses that the pilots must wear (William has been photographed in them, standard aviator type glasses).

Those pictures of them walking in the park are darling. Sadly they were probably photographed against their will. William looks quite annoyed.

I actually think Kate's gained a bit of weight since her tiniest days. Her face certainly looks a bit fuller to me. And she looks healthy for sure. Besides, putting so much emphasis on her weight is just silly and insensitive given what happened to Diana. She and William look happy. Let us leave it at that.
