I agree. There are other reasons why it looks photoshopped (the overly dark, 'black' area). But it is of no consequence. Would be nice to see other photos of the same event - that would nail it.

I'm as excited about Will and Kate as the next person, but the passion that some people are showing about whether or not this photo is photoshopped is ridiculous... WHO CARES?! It's not even that substantial a shot! You would think we were discussing whether or not a baby bump was being photoshopped on Kate...

LOL! It will be a RIOT when that happens!

Anyhow, glad that William & Kate's whereabouts last Saturday has been confirmed.
@putski & @Baroness of Books : you're very welcome :) Always a pleasure to share what I know.

Obviously, some here do care.

Hah! I wouldn't put it past some enterprising photoshoppers to do just that!!

I just read an article at the online platform of Germany's glossy BUNTE about William and Catherine. In it they mentioned that William will be moved to an Air base in Hertfordshire as his last post before leaving the army in 2013 and that they will move in at Harewood Park then...

Did I miss something there? You never know with BUNTE, they often make things up but sometimes they are very well informed.

The link to the article (in German): William & Kate: 100 Tage Ehe: Das Geheimnis ihres Glücks - BUNTE

It was rumoured that Harewood Park would be their home after he finished.

Here's the DM article from back in November 2010.

I remember Diana saying in the Morton book about the SAS training " It was so scary, the SAS men threw bombs at my car during an training exercise."
C& D had more guts than I would have to be put through that.

That is a lot to go through. Really demonstrates that life as a royal isn't all caviar & roses. Just the thought of your safety being compromised anytime you're in public is really scary.

What is SAS?( I am trying to figure out why there is a black square in the pic, disguising the officer's ID.) Are they like undercover spies or something?
To me being being royal is not worth the trade- off of being in potential danger every time I step out of my house.

The whole thing is just terrifying. Even if you know that it's just a practice session, it's still scary to think that you very well may have to deal with something like that (I don't know what I would do if this happened and I was with a child, though I'm sure they'll be trained how to handle that particular situation as well). Talk about a time when I personally would be begging for some type of anti-anxiety med to get me through the training session.

What a terrifying and intense ordeal! Imagine being in the middle of a firefight like that; I don't think anything can ever prepare you for the real deal in case that ever happened. Hopefully, some of the training would kick in if heaven forbid such an event occurred. And I'd think at the end of that session, I'd need something a bit stronger than tea or coffee!

Also, this quote from the story had me shaking my head:

"The SAS team lifted the pair out of their chairs and bungled them to safety. Rusty says: “It was the perfect hostage rescue, we called it a snatch operation. The noise is deafening."

The bold-face type is mine. The word the article should have used was "bundled," because it gives the impression that the exercise was handled in an incompetent manner. Obviously, the Mirror needs better proofreaders!

A VERY unfortunate mis-use of words. Why did someone not catch that? I'm sure the SAS appreciate that gaff.

ETA ... I find it very strange that there is publicity about this. I would think they would really want to keep that kind of training quiet rather than let kidnappers or terrorists know that the couple had had training.

Me too! I could not figure out why the newspaper had to disguise the Id of the officer. Now all has become clear...
