More waxworks of the Cambridges are popping up; this time in Berlin. I have to say, these are absolutely hideous . To me, a great deal of waxworks just creep me out, but these make want to lock my doors and keep the lights on.

Time for tea with Wills and Kate? Just don't expect a conversation... waxworks of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge go on display in Berlin | Mail Online

Absolutely horrible. William and Kate look like they've had a Twilight makeover: that's probably how they'd look if they turned into vampires!

great comparison. Whoever made these was most likely looking at the wrong pictures for inspiration.

Well what can I say? Nice try? Good attempt? Hmmm. A little better effort might have worked. Oh well. William looks ghastly by the way, not a very flattering image of him.

Kate's looks good, I actually like the hair on the wax figure better. It is longer and darker. Does William have pale eyebrows that are almost non existent?

Anne is to accompany her mother seeing as Philip is resting, Edward and Sophie are going as well. Harry isn't attending the opening as he'll be working.

William and Kate are going to the Paralympics?! But certain posters on this website were so sure that they wouldn't go because disabled people aren't 'glamorous' enough for them.

I'm sure said posters will post their apologies and acknowledgements that they got things wrong as soon as they possibly can. Not.

TBH I don't think I've read anywhere on these threads where the Cambridges wouldn't go to the Paralympics because disabled athletes aren't "glamorous" or anything near that kind of statement. Perhaps I missed them?

To my knowledge, when it was announced, it was announced that William, Kate and Harry would be ambassadors for Team GB for both the Olympics and the Paralympics games. I never saw any question of them attending other than work commitments or such.

I never read anything about the attending the Paralympics games, I assumed William would be at work and Catherine would be at home.

Y'know, I went back and found the article when it was announced and all it did say was that Wills and Kate would be ambassadors for Team GB for the Olympics and the Paralympics. Harry was only mentioned for the Olympics. Nothing really about them attending the Paralympics. I just kind of assumed that as ambassadors, they would be.

Now I'm wondering if there will be anywhere that the Paralympic opening, closing ceremonies and the games themselves will be televised anywhere in the US. I'd really like to see them.

Edited to add: Kind of answering my own question

This year's Paralympics are expected to draw their largest ever live television audience - except in the United States, where events will receive only minimal coverage and won't be screened as they happen, prompting anger from some fans and campaigners.

While viewers in countries including Brazil, China, Britain and Australia will enjoy several hours of coverage per day, U.S. audiences must contend with 5 1/2 hours of programming - some of which will air only after the 11-day competition in London has concluded on Sept. 9.

Well thats just wrong. There is no reason why it should not be televised in the U.S. I know there are plenty of people who would love to watch.

I'm definitely one that wants to watch.

I think CTV is airing the Paralympics if I'm not mistaken. Will be great to have something to watch. I've been so bored in terms on tv since the Olympics ended

saying that william and kate won't go to the paralympics because they aren't glamorous enough for them is such a dumb thing to think. they are both ambassadors to the olympics AND paralympics, and i expect them to be cheering on the paralympics as much as they did during the olympics. i have no doubt they will. if anything, paralympic athletes are even more glamourous and a true example of taking on a challenge, even more so than olympians. it's just harder to put yourself together after disease and pain and achieve excellence with a disability.

I was excited to see this on my twitter feed this morning. Always nice to see more of this couple. And since they're Ambassadors for Team GB, it's only fitting that they attend.

GB always do really well at Paralympics. They generally finish second in the medals table, and are hoping for over 100 medals this time. It's odd that Paralympic sport seems to have such a low profile in the US.
