That's incredibly endearing if it's true. I'm also a huge fan of the Anne books.

William & Catherine's Charitable Gift Fund

Not sure where to add this, but....


Friendly reminder:


You only have until the END OF MAY to send William & Kate a wedding present by donating to their Charitable Gift Fund, which will be divided among 26 chosen charities. Per experience, donating is extremely easy. So if you intended to do so, do it before it’s too late. So far, the charity has collected close to £1m.

Am I the only one who thinks William looked marvy with a beard?

No definitely not!
Maybe not now, but in the future I wouldn't mind him sporting one. Prince Michael of Kent has one and still looks very dapper .

Even with the hair situation I think William is a handsome man. Just look at those pictures of him playing football. Sure the tan helps, but I've always love his face (and voice).

I definitely have to agree with you on the voice. It was the first thing I actually noticed about him way back in '97 (though it's the first thing I noticed about pretty much everyone, since my lack of eye sight doesn't allow to remember faces all that well). He sounded and still sounds very sophisticated (maybe the accent helps here too).

And yes, even with hair loss, he is still a very good looking man.

It just dawned on me that in two weeks we'll witness the Duke of Cambridge, Prince William, take part in his first Queen's Birthday Parade on horseback during Trooping of the Colour as the Colonel of the Irish Guards. William in his first bearskin...now that will be a sight you won't want to miss...IMHO

Will the Trouping be televised?

I have a phobia of losing hair and so William's premature balding freaks me out a little as he is only two years younger than me.

Nevertheless, seeing him in his uniform is gonna be hot. I also must confess I get a bit of a thrill when Charles wears his kilts at Balmoral. Also vetti hot!

I don't like facial hair on guys, so I'll have to disagree with you on that bit. William is a very handsome man (though I prefer his brother), but he took a few steps down when he grew the beard. I hope I never see Harry in one.

No matter what she does, she'll be criticized, just like Diana was!

Remember when Diana was criticized for spending too much on her clothes?
But on the occasions when she wore the same outfit she'd worn before, the critics were merciless about that too!

It's hard to strike a balance, but I think Kate has done well so far.

The DM has housed the most spiteful comments on Kate throughout the years. I am almost certain they are likely the same people who have criticized her every move and called her names. And being a royal watcher for years, I know there are a few who would do anything to destroy her! Now that Kate's married to William, my guess is the haters aren't happy and are waiting on the first opportunity to pounce on her reputation. I wouldn't trust those talkbacks. They are not the majority. I have long learned to laugh off the DM comments and the haters therein.

You know sister, after the wedding a could see a beginning of a bold spot on Harry' head Let's hope the case doesn't evolve :P

About DM comments. One of the many things I've learn since joining this particular forum is not to pay much attention to that.

DM posters in general hate fat people, ugly people, old people, young people, thin pepole, straight people, gay people, and beautiful people. Most of all they hate themselves.

I THOUGHT I noticed this but then decided it was the lighting.

Will the Duke and Duchess be attending Wimbledon this year?

DM posters can be vicious, They have never once had anything good to say about Kate, I think it's incredibly cruel how they and the media are taking Pippa into their hearts and not Kate. She is our future Queen but because she doesn't cause trouble the media dislike her. Personally I think it's wonderful for us to have an elegant, posed Duchess who represents the family so well. She wasn't brought up as a royal so it can't be easy. She doesn't get enough credit for it.

Nothing has been confirm yet, but there is talk about making the Duchess a patron since she is fan of the sport. Any excuse to see them more often I'm up for it :P

Nope, I thought he looked terrific. Some people look great in a beard, others not so much. He is one who looks very good in one.
