That really is sad news. I hope the visit brought at least a glimmer of happiness in her last days.

My heart goes out to the families. Losing one's child is beyond devastating. I'm glad the girls were able to meet William and Catherine and receive a little sunshine.

Indeed it does. I remember seeing pictures of William and Catherine interacting with the children that day, and everyone was radiating joy. The pictures that stuck in my mind were of William with the little boy, and Catherine, sitting and listening intently to one of the girls. I cannot say this enough, but these two have a very special gift when interacting with others, especially children.

Such nice recognition from William and Kate. This young lady must have been absolutely thrilled. Thanks for the story.

Apparently they, like Sean Penn, do not believe in the right of self determination of the residents of The Falkland Islands. I would have thought that was a pretty basic premise of democracy, but I guess while in Argentina its a case of "do as the Argentinians do".

Agreed. Right to self-determination is one of the undeniable human rights.
I find the T-shirts in really bad taste; PR of cheapest and cheesiest kind. I wish "stars" stayed away from politics. Sean Penn, for example, lost all respect from me.

I used to think like that, but celebrities don't forfeit their right to opinions when they become famous. Even though I don't agree with Wyclef Jean's opinions; I admire him for taking a concern in his country.

Please there is no need to apologise. This idiot is British with no sense of history, fairness or justice. The only one who should apologise is Morrissy - such a stupid man

Don't worry, Corazon, people shouldn't judge others on one person's tasteless actions, so there's no need to feel any shame. Morrissey is British and the culprit here. And I'm sure in his mind publicity never hurts, and the more distasteful the better by involving innocent parties.
