Catherine is definitely not a cheerleader-type extrovert. However, she's definitely lively, and thankfully not to the point of jumping up and down when meeting someone. That would definitely make me want to go and run for the hills.

I agree. Catherine is quite comfortable in her own skin. She carries herself with total confidence and enjoys herself doing so.

She certainly seems very comfortable easily meeting and mixing with a number of people which is a valuable social skill for anyone to have, let alone for someone in her position. This could be daunting for many people.

Are you vegetarian or vegan? If not, I suggest you visit an abbatoir. Not picking at you, because I like you, but it must be one way or the other.

I don't plan to see the movie or read the book, as I am very sensitive to animal welfare, while still understanding the necessity of the war horse in times past, and war dogs in the present.

Since this is a children's book, it wasn't graphic but anyone can use their imagination based on the description of horses on a battlefield. I think it would be impossible for me as well to watch this movie since animal welfare is a hot topic for me, despite the reality of using animals in wartime situations. I couldn't even watch the movie "Water for Elephants" based on the novel, and that was mild in comparison to what this movie depicts.

I`m all for treating animals well, but it sometimes seems as if people care more about the treatment of animals than they do about their fellow human beings, as in death of animals in a movie seem to have more impact that the death of men in the same movie. JMO

Well, of course, the gravity of human death goes without saying.

Yes, you are correct, to a point. (Without going into the food chain of wild animals...Man perpetrates death on other men AND animals.) We are a bloodthirsty species. JMO

I'll not comment further as we're already way off topic.

I have decided to eat no meat & fish,but I believe that buying meat from organic farms is also an acceptable alternative to the mass production where animals are suffering and treated with no respect...
Caring about life should include all living creatures,humans and nature.Thereīs a quirky saying:"I am an advocate for animalīs rights,therefore I am campaigning for treating humans with respect and dignity."

But itīs getting off topic,just wanted to answer your question :-)

I have no problem with your views. In fact, they are admirable.

The Duchess looked amazing in that dress!
And what a handsome and thoughtful Prince she has- shielding her from the rain!
What charity was this event in aid of?

This was the UK premiere of the film 'War Horse'. Yes, I love the fact that Wills is a gentleman through and through; he holds the umbrella for his wife, gives her a hand when she's stepping off of a curb, and probably opens doors for her as well. More men should take a leaf out of his book.

Great videos, Ghost Night, thank you for sharing. I didn't realize Emily Watson was in the movie. She's such a lovely actress.

Ah, but, don't you know doing all that stuff for your wife is patronising?

I think of it as acting a true gentlemen. There is nothing patronizing about it imo. My fiance does such things, and I'm happy to know that when we have kids one day, he will be a good influence on any boys we might have.
