A particular comment on that article sums up my feelings perfectly (and from a fellow Angeleno too)

The Queen is very private and even she lets the public know the names of her dogs. This is taking privacy to a silly place.

It could well be that they don't want someone calling their dog and stealing it. We don't have a right to know everything. Kate and William don't even own their lives. They belong to the country, and their children will belong to the country. They'll spend the rest of their lives being gawked at and judged. If they want to keep the odd secret or two, it's okay with me.

Maybe Angelinos are just more used to "celebrities" pouring their hearts out and tweeting about every little thing happening in their lives. The Queen does not issue press releases about her dogs names . We know a few names because others have told them or they have been written about in various bios of her. Somehow I think I can live without knowing the name of William and Catherines new puppy.

That we know of, probably early 2010 late 2009.

Oh for cryin' out loud, we do NOT need to know every little detail about Kate and William. I for one can live the rest of my life without knowing the name of their dog.

Not to forget that some people surely would complain that while they keep quiet of their political opinions or something else that would show their "intellectual depth" they supply instead trivia like the name of their dog....

What they try is an approach to be present to the public with important information, not with trivia. >I personally like such an approach. Shall their private life be theirs!

I'm a big fan of happy news, so the news that they've got a puppy was welcome in my house. I don't think they have an obligation to tell us the name of the dog, though. Come to think of it, they didn't even tell us that they have a puppy. We found out through pictures taken with a long-range telescope.

Amazingly there are pictures from their vacation in Mustique.

Duchess Kate: Photos Of A Tanned William And Kate In Mustique

The first thing I thought when I saw these pictures is "William is going to be ticked". If the public beach photos made him angry, I can't imagine how annoyed he would be that they somehow got pictures from their vacation.

I can't help but to like the pic of Kate with her arm around William. They are such a private couple with their feelings that it's wonderful to see some tactile love. But I feel guilty because you know it was a private moment that was stolen from them and I want to respect their desire for privacy.

I don't think it's important for anyone to know the name of the couple's dog. Let some things, like their pets and family holidays remain private. We get enough details of their lives without that, and once they have children and start full time royal duties, it'll be even more so. They deserve to have something that is just theirs, and not the common knowledge of the general public.

Glad the photos have been removed, they were an invasion of privacy. Mustique is a private island and the photos were obviously taken with telephoto lenses and without permission.

I really don't see anything newsworthy in these pictures. There are so many photo oppotunities when they are out and about on official occasions. And most of the time they highlight an important topic then. But these pics only show that
a) they are still together
b) they have a family holiday
c) they really were there where the papers claimed they were.

So what?

I'm with you. When I looked at the first shot, I stopped looking. Shameful intrusion, IMO.
