Not weird but it is disturbing.

If it was secret how would the media know about.

At the grocery today, there were long lines which gave me the opportunity to rip off The STAR by reading the Mustique acticle on their dime.

The writing was the usual drek one expects. I did learn how very public that beach is as many others got caught up in the pics of the Duke and Duchess.

I know some of you think I should not even look. I figure as long as I read it in line, I'm reducing their profits.

Talk about being "suckered" by the press/media!!!!!
This is why the trashy faction of the media survives.

Well the Duke and Duchess should be back now as Kate has a engagement on Tuesday.

Here are the pictures from Woman's Day.

And yes, I am pretty sure they are back. Some posters on twitter said they saw her.

Does anyone know when the annual ski trip of the Duke and Duchess normally takes place? I doubt that the Duchess will ski this year - she is more likely to stay in the lodge sipping warm milk and eating cookies.

That's right; they usually go skiing this time of year with the Middletons. Didn't they miss the memorial service for the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret last year due to that holiday? Let's hope Kate doesn't even attempt the bunny slopes in her condition.

The anniversary is in March but I would be surprised if they went.

Also mentioned today is the imminent announcement of a further 3 charities for the Duchess.

No, I believe they missed the memorial service due to Will's work commitments I don't believe they would miss it due to a holiday, Baroness.

Kate won't be on skis - skiers fall, and falls are bad. She'll put up her feet and drink hot chocolate.

Cepe, Kate can take her laptop on holidays - I've done so. No reason to be chained to London when patroning charities and such.

I wasn't making a link as I wrote "also" in order to separate the comments.

Also, they did miss the memorial service in order to go on holiday.

Oh, thanks for the clarification. I was fuzzy and thought they missed something due to work, but it must have been something else last year.

Yes, that ski vacation occurred right after William got back from his six-week tour of duty in the Falklands at the end of March and they went with the Middletons on that trip. The memorial service occurred during that time.

Unfortunately, they did miss the memorial because of the skiing trip:

I don't think it is an article. I think it is meant to be a comical rant.

I was referring more to the unique situation of being royal a public figure and producing an heir to the throne perhaps having a talk with someone who truly understands her position would be helpful in helping her overcome her obvious panic everytime she is photographed because its going to happen all the time for the rest of her life and I dont think William is helping her by blowing up everytime a picture is taken of her than isnt official.
She is now a person of great interest and unfortunately pictures of her are like gold. She just has to learn to deal with them because she cant stop them.
