I think that's why I loved her portrayal of Prof. M. in 'Harry Potter' movies. She has the deadpan part to a tee.

I think a typed letter makes a person feel more important and appears more official. Even someone so young could appreciate a types letter from a Princess; if I had a letter from the President or someone famous, I would feel more important if it was typed on special paper.

It is perfectly fine and kind of international standard for royals / politicians to have the address and signature of a letter handwritten, the rest typed.

I guess the lack of engagements is producing some fill-in non-stories.

I fell (even more) in love with my sweetie when he very obligingly agreed to watch the series "Edward the King" many years ago. And he loved it and has enthusiastically watched many similar series in the 30 years we've been married. Good for William!

I'm just the opposite...make mine handwritten. But, typed is OK.

That's lovely. I watched 'Edward the King' and loved it too. It's wonderful that William enjoys these types of programs.

Quite frankly I think that a hand written letter has more meaning than one that has been typed. Besides, the fact that she took the time to write it gets an applaud from me. It shows her warmth and the fact that she is human. I thought it to be a wonderful gesture from a woman who I think has total class. She once again shows that she was born to be in the place that she is. Bravo my dear and continue to be the lovely lady that you are!!!!!

Honestly I don't care whether it's typed or handwritten. When I sent them a letter right after their engagement and got a letter back (obv it was the standard letter you get from the palace) I completely jumped for joy. Same goes when I got one from Charles. I was just so happy to get something I didn't care what it is so the fact Catherine went out of her way to make it personal for little Fabian is even more amazing.

I had a very close friend of our family pass away from bone marrow cancer, and the sad part was, no match was sound (even sadder was the fact that she passed on while in remission). This story brought tears to my eyes.

Can't believe it's been a year since these two got engaged. Also, I didn't know that they were engaged secretly on approximately October 20th of last year. You do learn something new every single day.

Yep, they kept it a secret for awhile, good for them! I wonder where the ring was during the secrecy portion of the engagement? Well they did live together so its not like it was either at her house or his house.

She may have worn it privately. God knows I'd have had a hard time taking that gorgeous sapphire off!

I have to agree. It's becoming ridiculous how many "non-stories" are showing up now.

Holy moly, November 13 can't come soon enough! Maybe we'll get an in-between sighting of Kate shopping at Waitrose or on the High Street between now and then if we're lucky and can dish on that.

It really has been a while, hasn't it? Looking forward to seeing them in November as well.

It was there choosing to lead a quiet life, sometimes it backfires.

Personally, and i'm not specifically talking to you Daria or Baroness. But when she is photographed out shopping, walking with her sister, walking to the gym - people complain that she's not getting her privacy. But, and this may sound very crude and I apologise if it offends anyone but I want to see what i am essentially paying for. I want to see Catherine and William, mainly for the outifts but also just to see them. They're a newlywed couple who're just hiding out for what seems to be to me some unknown reason.
