I haven't seen any of the pictures of Kate in France. I actually imagine there are plenty of people who didn't see them, either because of the principle involved or from simple lack of interest... for me it was some of both.

No, the Duchess did not go topless for the whole world to see. Lets not get into that here.

I think William & Catherine tried to not pay much attention to the media on their evening out but was focused on getting in the car and heading home. Looks like they had a nice evening out with their friends and Eugenie.

I think Catherine wears what's comfortable to her and waht suits her. Her style will change a bit over time but I think people just have to get used to her unique style and try not to compare her too much with the other European Princesses. She reminds me of Crown Princess Mary but they both have their own taste and I accept that.

Unless you represent certain Scandinavian princesses in a workers union, then I wouldn't worry about why they are mentioned. At least they ARE being mentioned

The funny thing here is that some users always feel the need to bring the Scandinavian Princesses in on Kate's board. Don't know why this makes them feel better.

Exactly. What is so newsworthy about two people going to dinner? Why is it perfectly acceptable to deny individuals the ability to simply get from point A to point B without flashbulbs going off? These people aren't trained monkeys, they don't need to put on a show simply because they're leaving dinner or going out to see friends.

When anyone in any of the royal families goes out to meet people from their charities or are doing royal duties then yes, I expect them to meet a certain level of decorum and yes, that includes smiling and acting cheerful even if they might not feel that way that day. But a person's job isn't 24/7 and everyone, regardless of social status, deserves some down time.

As for Lumutqueen's argument that the British press had nothing to do with what happened in France and W&K shouldn't withhold their attentions, I can only say that one bad apple spoils the bunch. Paparazzi in France is paparazzi in Britain, the US, Sweden, Norway, Spain, etc. If one group of photogs tries to ruin your life, rest assured, another one will darn sure try as well. They're all lumped into the same cesspool.

Ahead in what sense? I understand that you like her, but lets face it, she´s not better than anyone. I would say they all beat Kate in the job department

I don´t agree with those who say the British press is the same as anyone as regards the couple, they praise and flatter they, as someone said, for doing so little. The British press didn´t publish her photos, but they did publish Harry´s photos. Always bashing "dirty Harry" to make others look better, when it is the other way round.

The little preposition 'for' in this sentence makes the meaning entirely different from the meaning of this sentence.

Using "for" in the first sentence causes it to mean that Catherine had the goal or purpose that the world see, I disagree, I don't believe that this was her intent.
The latter sentence omits the preposition and has an entirely different meaning.

I am quite curious as to what they were celebrating. We so seldom read of William and Catherine going out to private parties these days, the last time I can recall, other than weddings, was for Prince Phillip's birthday.

I believe the Duchess of Cambridge has very fine qualities and all she is trying to do is her job.

All the royal princesses do their job to the best of their ability. There is no need to compare. They are each different people. Not better or worse but each unique.

But noone can force them to smile to the photographers in this situation? And honestly, I don't see the need for these pics to be published at all. Where's the news? Yes, they exist. We already knew that. They live in London. Dito. They go out sometimes. Whoa, that's news...

I've not seen any of the pictures either and won't be going to look for them. That's basically because my interest in royalty is in what they do and how they live their lives as members of a royal family. Not scandals and cheap shots by paps. The lives of royals no matter what country they come from are constantly under scrutiny which is why we call it living in a royal fishbowl. Personally as far as the paps outside the night club, I really don't think either William or Kate gave them much thought. They were going home and were probably tired. They just didn't ham it up for the cameras and to me that just said that they were ignoring them. IIRC, when they were photographed leaving KP in the helicopter, they weren't smiling either but just getting on with life.

ETA: Actually went back and looked at the helicopter picture and um... they weren't in it so I don't know if they were smiling or not.

Prince William’s personal secretary Helen Asprey, is to be made a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order.

Congrats to Helen.

Lately, it looks like they aren't even together; they're just in the same place. Anyway, all this scowling by W is making him look like a spoiled brat.

Right now I think they've had it with cameras focused on them. As we've seen with both William and Kate's interactions over the past couple of days, they've been photographed with wide smiles, giving hugs and in William's case, somber emotional expressions. They were also acting in official capacities too. I don't blame him for scowling at the media right now when they are on private activities. They should not be expected to bow down, chant moo and eat purple grass in honor of the Almighty Paparazzi each time they get in their faces.

I think William and Kate are most definitely defining the lines of what they will and will not tolerate in their lives. Unless they set the limits now, it will be so much harder to do in the future and one thing the press does want to do is remain on the good side of the fence with the Cambridges.

Kitty Atlanta, I don't know what you meant about that. The Cambridges are doing very well at working together as a team, imo.
