Most of the pics seems taken by bystanders or common people... and ot by paparazzi... ( I'm talking about pics of Kate shopping)... I don't know how the laws is about public streets

I think it's great that Catherine is able to have a private life despite her being a senior royal. I remember that was a worry by many before she and William decided to get married. A great deal of people thought she wouldn't be able to have a private life outside of the palace gates and go about her day normally. That has been proven not the case. Catherine can not only be a high profile senior royal, but also, she can run her errands privately and without much trouble.

I agree here... She seems to be strong enough to handle all this.... After all you don't wait 8 years to get married if you are not used to this kind of life...

She's been through a lot since her courtship with William. She was harassed, her family was harassed and publicly trashed and her privacy was violated several times. Despite it all, she has remained dignified, poised, her head held high and accompanied with a smile. Is she perfect? No, but she always put her best foot forward and I admire her for it.

Out of curiosity when will the maternity leave finish?

I thought in uk lasted one year
Kate is not subject to maternity leave because she doesnt work in the sense of being employed. If at all, she turns up for a few hours most of the time, she has various staff to look after George.

When I lived in the UK women could stay at home for 6 months paid, another 6 months unpaid, depending on what you can afford.

Well both CP Victoria and Prince Daniel split the maternity leave between them. It was discussed before the birth of their daughter and their government said they, like every other couple, were entitled to it. So, I guess it's possible the Cambridges have done exactly the same and good on them.

I am not a dyed in the wool Cambridge fan but it is a very good thing that they be seen to have the same rights as every other couple. We all accept that they are or can be role models so why not a model in this?

I think in this case we are talking about 3 months. George is over a year now, and still the maternity leave comes up because ... Kate has hardly been SEEN working.

I'm confused. What's the point of this tweet? Has she recently been seen at this store/restaurant? There's no context, it's just a link and then a dig about Kate not working.

In Britain both parents get 14 months of leave when they have a child? We're moving to Britain with a crate of ovulation kits!!

Well, no, Duke of Marmalade, in this case the maternity leave thing came up because someone asked. I don't recall having seen any sort of uproar about this subject until now.

Is the tweet in reference to Kate shopping last week, or was this another recent sighting? All the tweet contains is a link, so I have no idea what it's referencing. I think tweets from the person (or people) that spotted Kate (or just tweets that give more information), would be more useful than some random tweet that is unclear and without context.

This is one of the reasons why Harry says he hates twitter. He said it's a violation of his privacy. In fact, when the Daily Mirror published twitter photos of Harry and Cressida (at the theater), they complained that it invaded their privacy. The paper had to take down the photos and issue a public apology.

I don't know for sure but she was seen 3 or 4 times last week.... I have no link because people on internet simply tweeted it with an hashtag... No photos I guess

She was seen 3 or 4 times at the restaurant that person linked? I guess I'm trying to figure out why one of those tweets weren't linked, as opposed to a tweet from someone just making a dig about Kate.

The link that was in your initial post. The Black Faced Sheep, is a restaurant, coffee shop and store. I made the reference to it being a restaurant and store in one of my other posts.

Quote:
At The Sign of the Black Faced Sheep you will find a welcoming coffee shop and restaurant combined with an intriguing emporium, packed full of beautiful furniture, gifts and homeware carefully chosen to bring a little elegance and country into your living space
That's why I asked if the link from that tweet contained any other information beside the snarky comment. I was generally curious if Kate was seen shopping at this place 3 or 4 times, or if she was seen at other places.

Ah sorry I even didn't notice it! I thought I had posted only the tweet
Honestly I don't know

I think she has been seen in difference places... I don't know anything about "the black sheep". I read she was seen at bicester village and buying some clothes for George
