And I suppose another reason is that we knew Kate Middleton by that name for so long before her marriage that it's hard to break the habit, although a lot of people do take exception to referring to her by her maiden name. But some people are just more famous with their given names, as are the examples given by Spheno.

I also have to add Eleanor of Aquitaine to that list.

I'm thinking poor Kate is really ill and the reasons behind William's erratic behavior.

I doubt that unnamed "estate worker" has any insight into the decisions made at the main house. Probably they really changed the film but I doubt on William's orders, but maybe because they couldn't get the copy of Skyfall and had to take Twilight instead? But I can imagine that someone with no real knowledge might assume that it was because William had already seen Skyfall, then goes to the pub and blabbs to journalists who then write the story, which is published in order to show William what can happen if he doesn't give in to the media....
I don' t believe it. I think if the Queen had wanted to see Skyfall, then that is what would have been shown.

True but I'm thinking it's because the shot is taken from far away and in not the greatest quality as well as the fact she's prob lost some weight from the HG. I mean if she can't keep much down I wouldn't expect to see her gain much weight yet. I'm hoping it'll soon stop and she'll be able to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy. Cause I'm sure right now it's prob been nothing short of a nightmare. Or atleast that's how I'd feel.

Queens-consorts don't have regnal numbers for identification but they have maiden surnames or dynastic names.
We could add Camilla Parker-Bowles. People here get in such a twist when she is referred that way by the media. But I completely agree with Spheno, that it is commonly/traditionally done.

It's better than the American habit of celeb' couple naming.

You'd end up with nonsense like Willkate, Katewill or KatWii.

Best Pictures of Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2012
What a wonderful collection!

My favorites are:

1) The pic of them at the Olympics when Kate has her arms around Wills and they're obviously joyous. (Love the way so many pics are of them looking at each other.)

2) The beach one with Lupo

3) The one where Kate is wearing the head covering.

They definitely are a team though. Wouldn't surprise me if in the future they're William and Catherine just like you think of Victoria and Albert and William and Mary and Elizabeth and Philip and the list goes on.

I have noticed though (and I'm guilty too) that we see a lot of W&K here on the boards. Hmmm.. just thought of something... if you take William's first initial and add the last three letters of Kate, we got Wate. Waity Katie (gods I hated that) and Wills made the perfect team.

Actually, no. It's laziness and a sad state of today's Journalistic Standards. Catherine/Kate Middleton ceased to exist the instant the words, "I will." were said by her on April of 2011 in Westminster Abbey. She became HRH The Duchess of Cambridge or Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge or Duchess Kate or even Princess Kate since the day one of our members here posted quite the interesting piece on how in Scotland, she is indeed HRH Princess Catherine of Scotland due to differences in various Marriages Laws (Not sure of the proper term and I was up far too early this morning too. Even w/a nap, I'm running out of steam) and the Royal Family when it comes to their titles in England and in Scotland....

*However* Kate Middleton is all kinds of wrong and is just pure laziness on the part of the media these days. Even Anderson Cooper still calls her that and he especially should know better!!

I apologize for the rant and especially for that horrific run on sentence up there. I cringe just looking at it, but couldn't be helped I'm afraid.

As for that stupid immature article in the Express...You've got to be kidding me? Poor wittle vultures got caught breaking the rules the Palace laid down when it was announced the Cambridges would not be at Sandringham and this is how the react? Instead of apologizing, and showing some maturity and some common sense in doing such a thing, instead they pull of a stupid revenge smackdown piece of trash article instead.

Well, two can play at that game. As Duke of Earl has said, wouldn't it serve these twits right if they suddenly found themselves on the outside looking in for the rest of Kate's Preganancy and then for the first year of the little HRH on the way.

More than likely won't happen, but I bet Will and Kate wish they could do just that.

Knowing how much William loves the press and how stubborn he can be and how he's protective of Kate, I can surely guess who will lost out.

True, after all Diana was called, though inaccurately, Princess Diana, or Princess Di. Names such as Anne Boleyn seem to be used historically perhaps to differentiate her from Anne of Cleves, or she was referred to that way (and in less flattering terms) by ambassadors who considered her marriage to the King invalid and bigamous.

I imagine that when Kate is Princess of Wales, she'll be called Princess Kate by the press, even though it's technically inaccurate.

That's nothing new though, Camilla is still called by her married surname.

I agree. The late Diana, Princess of Wales was often called in the public/ by the press Princess Di or sometimes even Lady Di even though she was already married to the Princess of Wales at that time.

By all accounts that I've heard, Diana was the first to correct people too when they called her Princess Diana.

TBH, I'm happy they've not stuck the moniker of Princess on Kate. From most of what I've seen, its either Kate Middleton or The Duchess of Cambridge. Right now I'd wager that Kate herself is just wishing and hoping for the day someone says "Mommy".

Poor thing. One can imagine how she must have felt during the drive and suddenly needed something to fill a hole in the stomach. Nibbling at cheese is a really sensible thing to do in such a case.

To me it seems a little bit weird being so sick and eating cheddar.
