^^ Good point. I see the interest of media and people to move in waves. Not to fade out in overall but to redirect to other people. Now it's on William and Kate and their soon to start young family. As time passes and they get old, they'll start to be less and less fascinating. In a few years, there'll be nothing new anymore with them. Probably at that time, Harry will have found his woman and will be getting married and all the eyes will be turned on them and their new family. Then the interest on them will decrease and maybe William and Kate eldest children will be about to give us some proper scandals to comment and then it will be Harry's kids' turn and then they'll start to get married and story will repeat itself over again

All members of the royal family have through their very popular moments and then it pass on to the new generation. We have a long way to go with The Cambridge's popularity and the hype that surrounds them but it will die down after a while. Although it may increase once they become The Prince & Princess of Wales.

A great deal of attention will fall on Harry and his new lady too. Right now the attention is on the younger royals. Then it will fall on their children. It's all a pattern the royals have been dealing with for a long time and are pretty used to.

The visit of the Queen to Ireland was considered by both countries to be hugely successful. And it would be a great idea to build on that visit and widen the scope to other parts of Ireland.

The SAR link is tenuous but William has apparently landed in IReland with rescued personnel so fair enough.

Hope it comes off.

As for bringing Baby Cambridge - they would only be there for 2/3 days at the max., so I would be surprised. There is no comparison with the trip to Australia by the P&P of Wales

Mark Tomilson and Laura Bechtolsheimer are getting married in switzerland this weekend.
Someone on twitter said William was on her flight to Zurich today. Seems he's attending the wedding, I assume Kate will be there too.

I haven't seen it, but the fact that they're sending out thank you cards is wonderful. They're going to have a lot more to send out when the baby arrives!

Would she not be traveling with him if that was the case? A bit strange that the twitter did not mention her...But, why would he leave her behind?

Maybe he went straight from wales and she went from London. Also they may be less conspicuous not traveling together.

I don't know how much it's done by Royals, but I know there are some celebrities with children who don't travel together in case something happens during a flight. I believe senior members of the BRF don't fly together for similar reasoning - the likelihood of multiple planes going down, each containing one royal, is considerably less likely to happen than one plane containing multiple royals going down.

I think she wasn't in the same flight, otherwise wouldn't people recognize her? I think so. Both for security reasons or traveling from different place sound like possible reasons for this to happen. In any case, she seems to be there,

EDIT: saw in twitter that Tim Rooke, a photographer is in Zurich. Hunting for pics of Kate & William at the wedding for sure.

I would be surprised if this actually happens anytime soon. Security for the Queen's visit cost the Republic, which is essentially bankrupt, some Ј50million. I know security probably wouldn't need to be so high for the Cambridges, but it would still be substantial.

The security threat in Ireland is still huge, with a rocket launcher and other guns and ammunition being found just recently in the possession of so-called 'dissident' republican terrorists.

Anyway, William and Kate have only been to Northern Ireland once and only for a few hours. NI deserves more than that.

Landing in NI with SAR really should not count. Only Royal visits count, in my book.

I mentioned the SAR event because of the SAR link mentioned in the news report. I think EIIR is referring to the visit William and Catherine made prior to their wedding.

Laura Bechtoldsheimer ist the grand-daughter of billionaire Karl-Heinz Kipp who owns the Tschuggen Grand Hotel in Arosa, where he lives with his wife. So I guess the party is going to happen at that hotel.

The article says William and Harry are there too, but only pics of Kate so far

I thought that trip ended two days ago. It was from 25-27th. Right? I am so not good with these dates.
