It makes me smile to see them happy & romantic.

I love that they love each other so warmly, it makes them fun to watch - I look forward to seeing them grow in their Royal roles.

However I do think it would be fairer to them, who have already committed to giving so much to the public, to allow them some private time.

I wonder if Holyrood Park is accessible to the public, or the paps used their telescopic lenses for such closeups. But trust them not to pass up the opportunity to photograph the current most famous royal couple in the world.

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.
Kate's skinniness has nothing to do with Diana, therefore should not be considered insensitive.

Holyrood Park is publicly accessible, Arthur's seat, the highest point in Edinburgh, is at the centre of the park and a popular landmark for tourists.

Also, I was under the impression that it was more colour-blindness that was an ultimate disqualification...
My daughter changed career plans because she could not fly helicopters because of her vision. Only 20/20 vision was acceptable at the time. No corrective lenses of any kind allowed.

Its nice seeing them strolling together. As newlyweds I still don't see them as madly in love with each other. I feel like William loves Kate but he's not in love with her.

William & Kate's feelings for each other is personal. Your opinion, my opinion and everyone else's who don't know them personally are speculative at best. From my personal point of view, I find no reason to suspect that William isn't in love and completely devoted to his new wife. I think they are carrying themselves with good grace, class, discretion and dignity befit of their future roles.

Oddly so for two of the most famous people in the world taking a stroll in a public park.

I wanted to do the same thing many years ago but the army said only 20/20 uncorrected was allowed. although with advances in laser surgery.. it might be possible to pass the exam if the surgery went well enough.

They may be newlyweds because they're newly married, but they've also been together for about 10 years and have lived with each other for the last several. I think they've grown comfortable in their love for each other and are acting in a dignified and reserved manner before the eyes of the world. I personally thought William was particularly solicitous of Catherine during their North American visit, and the occasions in which their affection shone through was lovely to see.

Annoyed?

Yes, they are very famous.
Yes, they were in a public park.

But, somehow, a photographer managed to 'find' them and shoot pictures.

They must have been hoping that no one would have noticed them.
When they realized they had been 'noticed', then William looked annoyed.

Should he have embraced the situation, smiled broadly, and waved?
Or should he have been disappointed that they had not escaped notice and expressed his disappointment with an annoyed expression?

Just because they are famous and in public doesn't mean they give up their right to behave as a non-famous couple would- and a non-famous couple would be annoyed to have a camera in their faces.

William and Kate are not obliged to pretend to be happy about being unable to avoid cameras.

So, he looked annoyed. And, without naming names, William's 'annoyed' face is a lot pleasanter than the 'neutral' face of at least half a dozen royals! You know who they are!

I totally agree - just because they are famous doesn't mean they have to put up a happy face 24/7 and are forbidden to be annoyed with the paparazzi.
No one is in a cheerful mood day and night.

I think they behave quite normal, in comparison to certain celebrities when spotted/photographed.
But this discussion has taken place before here, I think.

Very well put . I think there are times when photographers are downright intrusive, and this was one of those times. These two have given us a great deal of photos in the past several months, and therefore, have every right to ask that photographers (and public) give them at least a part of a day to take a walk and not be photographed. William's annoyed facial expression is quite appropriate. He has every right to feel (and to show) that he's frustrated with the way his and his wife's privacy is being intruded upon.

I don't think they knew they were being photographed (which is naive on their part). Wills' grimace may have been about something else. They both look miffed about something.

Actually, that photo from the Telegraph shows Harry, Wills and Kate looking very peeved at something outside the Kirk. She looks like she's ready to spit.

I guess people see what they want to see. It looks like two photos merged together to me. Like the photo of William super imposed on the photo of Harry and Kate who walked behind him when coming out of the the wedding.

When the couple are in the park, they look like they are having a discussion or a moment of quiet reflection. Which is something I do when I am walking in a park.
