I watched a TV report and it mentioned that we got 102 medals in Beijing and we've come 2nd in the medal table for the past 4 games. I was shocked that i didn't know that, it's amazing!

Now that's the kind of Diana/William/Catherine story I like to hear, it's a true and honest connection.

I felt a little emotional reading that. Imagine seeing the orchid named after your mother just before she died during the 15th anniversary of her death. So sad.

I just read in the German issue of the Luxembourgian paper WORT, at the end of the report about the funeral of Alix de Lannoy, that William and Catherine are going to attend the wedding of Guillaume of Luxembourg and Stephanie de Lannoy on Oct. 20th - has this been confirmed?Wort.lu - Große Anteilnahme bei Trauerfeier für Gräfin Alix de Lannoy

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will be visiting Malaysia starting 13 September 2012 next Thursday, in celebration of The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The public will have the chance to see the Royal couple when they visit Suria KLCC Park to attend a cultural event in the morning of 14 September 2012. The exact timing and location will be announced by the British High Commission in Malaysia on their official facebook.

Another vacation? I thought this was going to be a vacation, since they mention another honeymoon at a desert island. It looks like they never have enough, don´t they?

Harry may do stupid things but a least he has a job, a real one, as a soldier.

It's not a holiday, they're spending one day not doing engagements at the expense of the Solomon government who wishes to promote tourism.
Even doing engagements touring the far east is hardly a chore.
