I didn't catch all of it, but I remember one answer was about the wing on his wedding day uniform. :)

What is RAF, of course.

I checked my twitter, and the person who posted about the category listed some other questions too. I think one was about the venue where him and Catherine got married (Westminster Abbey), and the other one dealt with the town that William and Catherine were now Duke and Duchess of (Cambridge). Fun stuff.

I'm sorry I missed that Jeopardy show. I'm sure a good portion of the questions would have stumped many a viewer other than us royal followers!

Oh, there's no doubt about that. My grandmother loves asking me about William and Catherine, but the funny thing is, she asks in such a way that it sounds as if I'm acquainted with them personally. I know she's worried about my lack of socializing opportunities, but this is taking it a little too far (even if it is very amusing ).

Aw, tell your grandma not to worry - you socialize well enough with all of us fanatics here on the forum! I get that reaction too from my coworkers - they're interested in the goings-on of Will and Kate, but look at me quite bemused at my enthusiasm when I go into detail!!

For that very reason m'dear, . Anyway, enough thread-napping on my part.

Another article on William and Catherine, and their desire to be in charge of as much as possible involving their lives.

Thank you Daria, hat was a very interesting article. It revealed a side of William I hadn't seen before.

I remember reading an article in 'Royalty' magazine about six years ago that dealt with William's graduation from St. Andrew's. He mentioned that he enjoyed a good debate and had a hard time admitting when he's wrong. I'd like to think that liking a good debate is still there, but the inability to admit one is wrong has lessened with age and maturity. However, I'm so glad he has enough spunk and confidence to speak up and not back down when he feels strongly about something. He's definitely a character, and would probably make a splendid conversation partner.

Now after saying all that, I hope this is what you were referring to. If not, then I feel like a really big idiot for putting up another word vomit.

^I remember last year how he said in Africa that he likes a good debate because alot of the excuses people(I'm guessing the men in the grey suits as Diana used to call them)come up with are not always legit and a bit ancient but he said something along the lines of sometimes he's wrong but if he has a point he will make it. Prob not those exact words but I'll see if I can dig up the interview tomorrow I'm just too exhausted right now.

What's wrong w/Chatalaine!?! They of all magazines in Canada *should* know better than to call her Kate Middleton. I'd even tolerate seeing "Princess Kate/Catherine" over seeing her referred to as she is on that cover...Yet again!!!

Grrrrrr!!!!

Sorry for the rant Gang, but Good Grief when are the Press going to get it right?

Thank you for both those articles, Daria - they reveal insights into Prince William and Kate that we see bodes well for the future. Wouldn't it be great if they actually had a hand in determining the succession laws? At least they can certainly voice their opinions and we can see that William has no problem doing that!

And, Tiggersk8, I agree - it is annoying to see articles and headlines that don't address Kate properly by her title. Blame it on the casual nature of society today, but this lady is now the Duchess of Cambridge and they can at least address her as Duchess Kate (even if that's not the proper way)!

You were exactly on target Daria, no word vomit! I hadn't really given a lot of thought to how he dealt with all this stuff. It's nice to see that he doesn't just "do as he's told" and actually has his own ideas about things. IMHO, having his own opinion indicates he cares about his role and isn't just going through the motions. Does that make sense?

So glad I made some sense (as did you, Royal Newbie ). I always worry about saying something and sounding like I'm off my rocker.

I will agree with Tiggersk8, and all those who are annoyed with the media's lack of attention to details in terms of Catherine's new title. It's been almost six months, so there's really no excuse for repeatedly getting this wrong.

You're very welcome, Baroness of Books. Yes, their ability to see the positives of change and desire to move with the times will help them in our society, which is constantly trying to move forward. Speaking up is something that takes guts, and a lot of people feel that rocking the boat is not always the right way to go, and I'm glad that William (and Catherine) have no issues in that department. Will serve them greatly in the future.
