I didn't realise copyediting was such hard work. Good to see proper journalism at work...
Things like this really annoy the ex-proofreader in me; the Daily Mail had a similar gaffe with misspelling "bustle" several weeks ago.

The name that leaped out at me was Alfie Boe's. He played Jean Valjean in the 20th Anniversary of Les Mis and his Bring Him Home was beyond breathtaking!!

If he sings that during this event, then Will and Kate are in for a real treat.

Unfortunately, there are always sickos out there who revel in the pain and grief of others.

This is indeed terrible. I don't know how anyone could mock someone else's grief like that. I agree, it's a form of bullying, and needs to be stopped. Internet bullying is a horrid thing, because it's not always easy to identify and reprimand the offender. I hope someone out there will be able to take notice and pass some tougher laws that can stop this kind of disgusting behavior.

On a bit of a positive note, a bit more on William and Catherine's anniversary weekend.

I think Ziggy is the Danish royal family's dog.

Ziggy is the dog of The Crown Princely Couple of Denmark.

Very nice images and text; thanks for that. It was interesting to see Kate emerging from the hotel on her wedding day; I didn't think they were able to get any photos of her due to the concealing tunnel from the entrance to the car.

Any possible truth to the Daily Mail claiming that the RAF told William he has till the end of the year to choose... Flying with the RAF or Royal Duties? I'm truly hoping they were just trying to stir up trouble like usual.
