Heat magazine apology to Duchess of Cambridge for photo
Quote:
Celebrity magazine Heat has apologised to the Duchess of Cambridge after publishing a photograph of her shopping at a supermarket last year. The Press Complaints Commission (PCC) said it had received a complaint from solicitors after the photograph was published in December.
On one hand, I'm glad William and Kate guard their privacy.
Then again, if they continue this less than friendly relations with the press, the latter might eventually turn against them.

I tend to agree. Prince William's contempt for the press, and particularly photographers, is well known.

I think the reason that they chose to complain about this instance is that Will and Kate have a kind of unwritten agreement with the British press that they will be pretty much left alone while on Anglesey. The press have never gone into detail about where their house is located, for example, even though they know where it is. Photos like the shopping one and when they were walking Lupo on the beach, essentially contravene that agreement. When Kate's in London, it's a different kettle of fish and we see photos of her regularly when she goes to the capital to shop.

It's all rather futile, though, even though most of the British press won't publish the Anglesey photos (except Heat on this occasion) they will have been sold to foreign publications who aren't under any duty to sing Clarence House's tune. They also end up on the internet so people in the UK can end up seeing them anyway.

But, I think that William especially feels that he has to at least dry and draw a line where he can.

I suppose he's choosing his battles wisely; he knows he can't stop the photographers from taking pictures, of course, but when it comes to photos on Anglesey, he's putting his foot down about the invasion of privacy at their private residence.

I think that as a young couple they do need the privacy at this time, and am glad they guard it. William will always view the press with a jaundiced eye, and who can blame him?

I did like seeing the photos of Kate grocery shopping. I think photos of them as a down-to-earth, ordinary no-nonsense, no-pretensions pair will only add to their popularity.

I do like Kate, and I hope that her role evolves somewhat similar to that of the Queen Mother (without some of the more controversial things I have read about her personality, but Kate does not seem to share those traits).

Im glad that the magazine apologised for the photo, at least they know they were wrong. On the other hand I think it is unrealistic to think that there wont be any pictures at all even whilst living in Angelsey. I know they expect more privacy when they are there but do you really think all of the paparazzi are going to abide by thier wishes? The privacy issue is important but I think to most the sales of magazines and photos of the couple will win out every time unless the paparazzi somehow miraculously attain morals or a heart for that matter.

You're absolutely correct. It is all about selling papers/magazines and making a profit. However, I think judging by lack of photos from Anglesey in recent months, we can at least think that the press is abiding by the wishes of the Duke of Cambridge. The press is not stupid. They know they need to be on William's good side, or else they'll be getting even fewer pictures and photo ops, so they give him what he wants for the time being, with hope that once he and his wife are full-time working member of the Royal Family, they'll be willing to allow more pictures of themselves. Of course, once children come into the picture, it'll be a whole different ball game, because I have a feeling William won't be sticking them in front of the camera at any opportunity. He strikes me as a very private person; someone who wants to protect not just his own privacy, but privacy of those whom he loves. His children will be on that list, right alongside their mother, and he'll do whatever needs to be done to give them a childhood that is as normal as possible (most likely one that has a couple of family photo shoots during the year, with the rest of the time being off limits when it comes to picture-taking).

Wasn't there a picture of their Anglesey house puhlished the Vanity Fair issue last year that covered their wedding? I still have that issue and there is a pic in there that is captioned as though the pic is of their Anglesely house. I remember thinking that quite odd because I thought there was an agreement between the Cambridges and the press not to published a picture of it.

I remember seeing something similar in the 'Daily Mail' couple of weeks back. I think it's great that she exercises without the help of personal trainer. Though it's wonderful if one can afford it, it's not always necessary. She has the equipment (which doesn't appear to be that difficult to obtain) and the discipline to keep up her regimen on daily basis (heaven knows I don't have that kind of discipline, so I don't invest in any exercise gadgets, but I do try to walk forty to eighty blocks couple of times a week to keep in somewhat of a decent shape).

Just light exercise and a sensible healthy diet?

I think Kate runs as well as part of her exercise routine, but walking is the best exercise - at least for me- and those are a lot of long city blocks you walk, Daria. Good for you!

Well, my destination is Barnes & Noble on West 82nd, which is about forty blocks from where I live, so if I want to go and hang out in a book store, I make myself walk there and back. Walking is the best exercise, because it doesn't tire you out as much as running does, but it still gives you that cardio work out you need.

Yes. I did wonder how she was able to go from a little chunky to totally trim before the wedding. Maybe its just me but I recall seeing her those times before her marriage and she was not that slender. Seems she began doing something because the engagement pictures and the interview showed she was losing wieght. I thought maybe it was from nerves or stress with all that was going on in the planning and organizing. Well I have to say she has managed to keep up with it without starving herself. Good for her. :)

I don't know how these princesses manage to be so trim with all of the banqueting, etc, that they have to do. I suppose it is discipline, discipline, discipline.

Many years ago, I remember reading about how HM maintained her weight. There was something about a rather strict diet during the month of January each year, and also something about using lemon juice and pepper rather than salt. This is a very old fragment of memory, so I have no idea whether it was true or if the magazine was just making it up!

Kate hasn't looked chunky to me since her college days and even then it seemed to just be in her face.

Duke and Duchess of Cambridge get SAS training
Quote:
Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have been receiving SAS anti-kidnap training. The move comes admit fears that they will be targeted during the Jubilee and London Olympics. The royal couple apparently made a number of visits to the SAS headquarters in Hereford to learn what to do if terrorists try to snatch them.
And a request to Mods: would it be possible to change the title of this thread to "General Information on the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge"?
Sometimes there is information about Prince William that doesn't fit into current events thread, but since this is dedicated to Kate only, it doesn't fit here either.

I thought they already took SAS training soon after their marriage; I remember reading that. This must then be a refresher course teaching some beefed-up skills.

I remember reading about it as well.
Maybe this is a modified and adjusted course to specifically tackle threats during Diamond Jubilee and Olympics. Or, this might be another made up story.
