The article is claiming that William, Kate and Harry are on Brad and Angelina's wish-list - not that they are invited. Plus, who said that the three royals are on the wish-list? Where is this 'information' coming from? How embarrassing if they aren't invited!

I suspect the article is a plant to determine whether it would be okay were the three royals to party at such a glitzy celebrity party. I think someone has run this up the flag-pole to check the prevailing winds.

Or, potentially, Brad and Angelina might see this article - or one of their assistants will see it - and get the hint that they should invite the young royals.

Its amazing how much smoke and mirrors such little bits of non-information in a non-story are really about.

Well let's hope it doesn't become reality. The BRF going down the 'celebrity" route again is nothing but trouble, imo.

I will bet a year's worth of donuts that it will never be a reality. As Tyger said, its really a non-story to begin with. One thing that it did do though with putting Wills and Kate and Harry's name into a story about Brad and Ang's upcoming big bash in London, it got more people like me who don't follow celebrities at all to realize these folks are throwing a big bash in London. Big deal. Charitable works are great but for some reason I really want to question their motives on this one.

Re: Brad and Angie story, been seeing it on other sites as well but I dunno whether they just took the original story from femalefirst and just re worded it a bit or if other paper's sources are also hearing about this. I'd wait for confirmation from the palace tbh.


In other news William and Harry will be participating in a polo match after Trooping The Colour though no word yet if Kate will also be there

Also a new quote from Cheryl Cole
Quote:
'I spent quite a bit of time chatting to Kate and William. She's just so normal. They're royals but they're not disconnected from us, they know what's going on in the world. They were just saying how happy they were with the performance and what a good night the Queen had. Kate's doing really well. It must be tough being thrust into the limelight but she doesn't seem to flinch. She takes it in her stride. I love that she wears things twice'.
Bigger news apparently the Duke and Duchess are set to go on more engagements with the DoE and The Queen in July
Quote:
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are set to return to Scotland in July, as they accompany the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee engagements.

Along with the Duke of Edinburgh, the royals will attend various events in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Greenock and Perth between July 2 and 6.

You got that right. They are really awful in my opinion. I really hope the Duke and Duchess don't stoop that low.

I'm maybe being heretical here, but I've never been impressed by "Brangelina". IMHO they're just trying to further their "look at us we're special" mentality by cashing in on their so-called "friendship" with a couple who are real royalty rather than "Hollywood" royalty. No comparison.

I have no idea how accurate this information is:

I too am not a Branglina fan.... having said that, I can't blame them for inviting the Duke and Duchess to their event; look at the ink they have recieved just for the invitation alone. However, I will be dissappointed if for some odd reason the Cambridges accept.

I am pretty neutral towards Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. However, this is a non-story, as far as I'm concerned. IF they are indeed hosting a party (and that hasn't been confirmed), of course they are going to invite the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and Prince Harry - 2012 Olympic Ambassadors. If they did not invite them, now that would have been surprising.

I will say this about the Jolies or Pitts or whatever: they have done a huge amount of work for charities worldwide. For instance, Pitt's Make It Right Foundation is currently building solar-powered, elevated, and community-conscious housing for families in my hometown of New Orleans, specifically the ill-fated Ninth Ward devastated by Hurricane Katrina. They are doing this while no other major beneficent programs, including the US government's promised help, have done so.

At least they put their money where their mouths are, in my humble opinion.

Just saw all of the above and agree.

There is no invitation. Someone decided to claim that they were on a wish-list. Where that info comes from is unknown. Its a safe speculation because I'm sure Brad and Angelina would be fine with them coming, of course - but the attribution to them of having such an overt wish - unless it was said in an interview that is being kept secret - is someone's concoction. Faulting them for it is unfair imo. That said, its possible they floated it - or their publicist did - for 'the ink'. That's possible.

I can never get Jennifer Anniston out of my mind when I see Brad Pitt - or forget how shimmering a presence he was as a younger man in the film 'A River Runs Through It'. Long time ago it seems. I also understand that the love he had for these two women was very different - and is none of my business, of course - but for some reason I find myself resenting Angelina. I'm happy to say that she has lost her bankability in films - and that is very mean of me, I know. I don't find her likeable.

I also don't like these famous people who have these huge adoptive menageries of children. Its like they are addicted to adoption. (there is Angelina - and Madonna and Mia Farrow come to mind). I laud giving children the benefit of their wealth - yet there are other ways of having that happen without separating a child from its natal home - now that would be a statement! (Part of my negative bias is rooted in having had experience with such menageries - and its not always the fairytale - more problems than such arrangements are worth imo - there are so many better ways of making a difference with one's money than compromising one's family peace and harmony).

I am aware that wealthy people have long had glittering social events around charitable causes - its laudable, I guess - but there are other ways to get the wealth into the hands of those who need it - like taxes

Yep. I really admire their charity work. They're very hands on and involved. As for the whole triangle thing, I couldn't care less about it. It's been 8 years. They've all moved on and seem happy with their current lives.

Exactly. If there is such an event, I don't see the big deal with the Cambridge's being invited (or going).

I personally don't buy into this idea that children shouldnt be separated from their "native name"! I am pretty sure it is more important to have family and parents who love you rather than being raised in an orphanage or countless foster homes in your native land. And this is coming from someone who doesn't like Brad or Angelina and was Team Aniston.
As for this "wish list" I don't believe it, just people looking for a story.

Quite appropriate for a new member of the Order of the Thistle to accompany the Queen in Scotland, right? And given the health issues of the DoE, perhaps the planners at Buckingham Palace are looking for more opportunities for Will and Kate to join the Queen and DoE just in case the DoE is sidelined by illness again.

It would be nice to see them attending a royal wedding elsewhere in Europe! I'm going to cross my fingers and hope this comes to pass, especially if there are some tiara events for Kate.

Hmmmm.... I wonder if William will wear a kilt any time while in Scotland?

He's never worn a kilt, I think the man prefers a little more clothing.

He has on at least one occasion - although I doubt he had much say in the choice of his attire at the time!

He doesn't look too comfortable in that piece of clothing, and he was a child when the picture was taken. I doubt highly he'll venture out in a kilt as an adult.

Not sure where to put this, but here we go.
Wax figures of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge wearing England supporters hats, scarves and flags in support of England's participation in the Euro 2012, at Madame Tussaud's, London, Friday, June 22, 2012.

- The Duke and Duchess
- David and Victoria Beckham, Prince William and Kate, and Prime Minister David Cameron
Gallery from Daylfie

Kate's wax figure is OK, but the others - especially William's - are downright ugly.
