I think Christopher Lee is either jealous, or needs some publicity.

Why is it that every time someone says something that is not nice about William and Kate, that person is either jealous or needs publicity?

I don't care what a former defense correspondent has to say. I would be more interested in a Royal correspondent.

I agree with your sentiment. I am not sure, however, that these comments are really negative. I think saying that they are dull is a bit of a compliment. I think that they try really hard to be boring!

If they wanted to, they could very well be a totally different type of couple and actively seek to draw attention to themselves but they don't. They pretty much go about what they do and I do think try not to call a lot of attention and press towards themselves. They are very careful not to overshadow the more senior members of the family and in fact, when they can, they enhance it.

Their time is yet to come but from what we've seen over the past couple of years, they're getting ready.

As the same article (the DM version) quoted Hilary Mantell out of context I would rather read the whole of what Mr Lee said before rushing to judgment. From what is reported it looks as if the journalist has taken a long and serious book or article and snipped out two or three sound bites.

i'm not sue it's Mr Lee who is courting publicity so much as the Daily Mail & Daily Express stirring up trouble.

i agree - I have seen nothing that makes me think they did not learn lessons from what the family went through in the 90s.

And if Katie Nichols intended this to be anything but a slam - I worry about her intelligence. It's another piece that paints them as empty-headed dilettantes who only have the brains to worry about privacy trees and finding pretty antiques.

Certainly Channel 9 news here in Australia has enjoyed reporting on the Queen's "order" for Catherine to undergo a "make-over" for her upcoming tour.

No mention of the original report posted above, but a cross-over to a UK based Royal Correspondent, followed by a discussion amongst the panel of the "Chat Room" section.

Sean Neil is reporting that the Duchess of Cambridge will be "dripping with diamonds", wearing tiaras - plural - and out to make a "great impression" with lots of glitz and glamour.

The report is headed with "Queen bans short skirts".

The panelists later in the news suggested that a big part of Catherine's appeal lies in her wearing of "High St" brands, people being able to relate to her etc., and that there is a danger that if she goes too upmarket, she will lose some of that.

I can't agree.

I think people here would be disappointed if she, and William, were too casual.

We have that every day, and this is supposed to be a Royal Tour, so we're expecting a look at Royalty, as Royalty.

Cheers, Sun Lion.
I've always been told, it's not the clothes it's how you wear them. Catherine is not going to be dripping in diamonds in Aus but she won't ditch the so called "high street" brands either.

I guess it was a quick break.

The Duchess of Cambridge and Prince George have returned home from their week-long holiday on the island of Mustique-
