So... is that a double swing? Are William & Kate supposed to sit on it together or one at a time? Is the swing big enough for them to sit on it together? Is it the same size as the ones he gave George & Charlotte? If George has one of his own, why was he not photographed using it instead of his parents' swing? Or did someone decide we needed a reminder that he is their son?

Could be. Or it could be that it's his favourite because it's Mommy and Daddy's. Or the background behind William and Catherine's swing was deemed to be more attractive by the photographer for the shot he wanted than George's swing was. Or they took some on each swing and he was making goofy faces in the ones on his swing. Or, like Victoria Arbiter, they found a certain romance in using that swing.

There are a lot of reasons that they could have used that swing; I personally think that someone thinking we needed a reminder is the least likely of the myriad of options.

Someone said that her friend's parents gave them that swing and they went to W&K wedding. They are pretty pissed that Charles is getting credit for it. But who knows, it is the internet.

I readon the net that those swings were a gift from Charles, and that George and Charlotte have a personalized swing too. Don't know the credibility though

If the people were the actual gift giver why would they be pissed that the papers are giving the credit to Charles? William and Kate know who gave them the swing and the giver should be honored that WK used the swing for George's pictures.

I don't know, they allege gift giver weren't the one of the internet saying that. And I didn't ask the person who made the claim on the gofugyourself site.
People get mad for any reason.

A SERIES of books depicting the inspirational journey of a seven-year-old Keady girl during her brave battle with cancer have been given a Royal seal of approval.

In correspondence sent from Kensington Palace, the Royal couple appeared genuinely touched to have received the copies and congratulated the team on their "inspiring project".

The letter sent to Tracy on behalf of the Royal couple, read: "The Duke and Duchess were most impressed to learn that your students created these books for the Young Enterprise Company Programme this year, and were delighted to receive copies - it really was most thoughtful and generous of you.

"The Duke, as Patron of Child Bereavement UK, and The Duchess, as Patron of EACH, know how important it is to support children faced with illness in a child friendly manner and would have me congratulate the team on this inspiring project.

"Nevertheless, Their Royal Highnesses would have me reiterate their sincerest thanks for taking the time to write, and wish you and your students every success with the books."

Speaking to the Ulster Gazette, Tracy said everyone is "elated" the Royal couple has taken the time to respond.

Catherine, George and Charlotte have flown to France.

"Daily Mail"/"Mail Online"/Rebecca English are reporting they have flown there in the Duke of Westminster's Cessna plane.

They are said to have landed near the Spainish border, at the airport of Pau-Pyrenees, yesterday at 1.30pm and been driven off in two blacked-out Range Rover vehicles.

A couple of photos of the jet and a Range Rover are out on the internet from the local French media - and have been taken up by twitter fans.

(Maybe next week's Australian magazines will have shots of the family and Maria, as it's being reported the transfer of the luggage took several minutes on the tarmac.)

Here is the original story from France the DM is based off of. Lots of rumour but it's not entirely clear who was on the plane.

I'm sure now we know pretty soon if it wasn't Kate. Im sure KP will deny it within minutes if it wasn't Kate now the DM has published the story.

Now the hunt will be on to get the full scoop of when William joins them. Or perhaps dig up reasons why they're taking separate vacations or who knows what the DM can come up with.

Not saying it wasn't Kate. It's just the article doesn't say who exactly was on the flight.

It would be nice if the family was able to enjoy some private time together in France

Emily Nash from Hello said on Twitter about an hour ago. It's all 4 Cambridges. I wonder if the Duke of Westminster has a property near by because I can't think what relatives would be in that area.

It's a good probability, if it's his private jet and his Range Rovers, they are staying at one of his properties as well.

Not if they are on a large estate that the Duke of Westminster owns. That's is private property and the Duke of Westminster has a lot of money to keep unwanted people out.

I'm thinking along the same lines. No need to have pictures of the family on a private holiday. Though I'm sure there will be some paps trying to catch a glimpse and get 'the money shot' anyway.
