That's really creepy that people keep taking old pictures of Catherine and inventing new stories to go along with them. Once is just an outlier but this is becoming a bizarre pattern. And the media will eat it up with a spoon because they fired all their fact checkers.

No wonder the Royals need so much security. They are being stalked by nutcases.

It is very odd I agree. The papers appear to be desperate to have anything Cambridge related.

The news media are relying on twitters and bloggers for info. Not checked or regulated. Not a problm when its fashion but whereabouts, family info etc is v dangerous.

Im at the stage where if it is not official, I dont believe it. Too many nasty types out there wNting their message to have its moment of fame.

I never used to have sympathy with William, but now I have e ery sympathy for his desire to protect his family.

Its a shame. There is a website I won't name here where fans of a certain British prince love to spread this sort of disinformation about William and Kate.

They make up lies about Kate and William on a daily basis.

I hope we don't get any pics. I'm tired of the Royals being exploited by an insatiable media. This is their private time.

For all I know they are at Balmoral but this entire story, including newspaper articles is currently based on 1 tweet from someone who said her sister had seen them.

One tweet now = news. Sheesh

I agree with your whole post. Nice to see I'm not the only one exasperated with the media. Their credibility has gone down the toilet.

I think we should always look on the bright side. William, Catherine and George are not actually needed for photos or stories. They don't take any notice of them and most royal watchers can spot recycled photos.

Glass half-full. The Cambridges could always hire lookalikes to go all over the place. The media would believe it and report it. It would become a game of "Where in the World is Carmen Cambridge".

Since we never see William in a kilt, I somehow doubt we're likely to see George in one anytime soon.

Grandpa Charles might dress him in one someday when William's away.

We can hope.

Or, even better, William might someday realize that that wearing a kilt isn't too bad and put one on himself. Personally I think it's odd that William comes from such a kilt-wearing family and never puts one on himself.

I hope he never wears a kilt. Scots themselves don't wear kilts so why should William. My ex wife was born and raised in Scotland and kilts belong to another era outside of Highland army regiments

Many Scots would probably view William wearing a kilt as a form of cultural appropriation

I think William may feel like he don't have the right legs for kilts. His parents put him in kilts when he was a little boy though. Although, he might put one on someday, I really don't think he's into stuff like that.

I agree. It would be one thing if the Royals wore kilts on a regular basis. But to do so only in Scotland comes across as gimmicky. Like wearing green on St. Patty's Day.

Kilts and plaids were banned in Scotland by the Act of Proscription in 1746 the year after the battle at Culloden where Bonnie Prince Charlie tried to regain the throne for the Stuarts. It remained in force for 36 years and after that, the kilt never fully returned as everyday dress.

I do seriously think although I like a man in a kilt, that most men today would eat glass before wearing a skirt. Charles is very much the traditionalist and has never given a hill of beans about what people thought about what he wears. William, I think, is a horse of a different plai.. err color.
