Another pic surfaced(scroll down)
Duchess Kate: Kate Snapped Enjoying Lunch + Poll Results

I have to say though their wearing the same clothes as a few years back but then again it wouldn't be the first time they've recycled their old clothes.

It was originally posted on http://williamandkatelove.tumblr.com/page/3 so you'd have to ask the person who runs it where they found the pic.

Thank you for these, ghost night. It seems that there is more unfurling evidence that these could be our vacationing duo, although that could be anyone with a baseball cap and sunglasses sitting beside the purported Kate!

I can't believe people are still complaining about this, you'd think they purposely ran over a box of kittens.

Does anyone know if the Duchess of Cambridge ever met the Queen Mother? I don't think so and I dont think Prince William was close either. Any views?

If this post is in the wrong place, sorry but not sure where else to put it

I doubt if Catherine ever knew her but William was 20 when he died and there is no reason to think he did not have a warm relationship with her, especially given how close his own father was to his grandmother.

I believe she died in 2001 or 2002 and William and Catherine only met in late 2002.

The Queen Mum died March 30, 2002 - thus the memorial service 10 years later. At the time of her death, it was the spring of William & Kate's first year at St Andrews. They have already met but not started dating which happen in sometime in their sophomore year when they moved into together with friends to a shared apartment in town.

I don't get what the big fuss is about on some message boards. It was a private family memorial. If the Queen & Prince Charles required William & Kate to be there, they would have been there. When the Queen Mum did die, where was William ? - skiing with his father and brother and they all did come home for the funeral.

The Queen probably wishes now that she made William & Kate come home for the service, if she looks at the Daily Mail where they spend more time showing that you could see the spanxs undergarments of Princess Beatrice than the service itself.

I have no problem with William and Catherine not attending the Thanksgiving Service for the Queen Mother and Princess Margaret.
The media would have focused a huge spotlight on what Catherine was wearing; the lives of the two women could have been trivialized.
The Royal Family that attended appeared warm and happy together.
It was lovely coverage.
Zara and Mike were also absent.

Anyway I don't think spending time with the in-laws (which might have been on the schedule before the memorial service was plans) was a bad reason at all

I think zara and mike have a good reason in that they aren't full time working royals and can't necessarily take a Friday off their regular work schedules for a family event. It's nice that Kate and willam not spending time with he family, I just think Kate needs to step up a bit more in the work department before she can really justify all the holidays.

William has a full time job, does engagements on top of that, and just got back from six weeks away for his job. And I think we can safely assume that Kate's work is not just what we see her doing. There's probably a ton of day to day correspondence, planning, meetings, etc. And she did do several engagements while he was away.

Something about when William mentions 'future family' Catherine's reaction!

Yes, interesting - and if accurate, rather odd since that is one of the tasks before them - to have an heir. I know there are some posters on TRF who are of the opinion that they won't have children. Funny thing.

So sad about Charles' eye-wipe. He even looks sad. How tragic that all was.

How can one compare Zara & Mike to William & Kate. As with everything, its about the image that comes across. A future King preferring to ski with his inlaws instead of honoring his dead great-grandmother (who knew what service to the country & sacrifice personal pleasures meant), how classy.
