You're right Osipi - Australia, (and New Zealand no doubt), couldn't get enough of the Cambridge family being here amongst us. We loved every moment.

Out of his parents, I would say that he looks like Catherine the most, however I can't see the Mike Middleton connection personally.

The Daily Mail I've noticed tend to praise Catherine an awful lot – a different end of the spectrum, but I remember there was a recent article stating that royals such as Mary and Letizia have been inspired by Catherine because they have been wearing similar lace based outfits. Come on, it's not as if Catherine invented lace. Royals, especially Letizia I've noticed, have been wearing lace long before Catherine entered the royal world.

I agree with you, it is a bit ridiculous to put her in this position, for doing what exactly........ And I would say the same about any royal family member in any country.

Seriously?! For every time the DM has referred to Kate as 'stunning' or praised the 'Kate effect' on clothes etc. there are many, many sly, snide, derogatory articles by the DM about Kate and her family. They are very hard on Kate a lot of the time because they know articles about her and her family will generate hits and comments like almost nothing else. The only thing that gets DM readers going more than a good attack article aimed at Kate are the time-honoured DM attack articles aimed at immigrants.

For the vast majority of people in the UK, Mary and Letizia et al are pretty much unknown. The DM has had a few articles about them recently because the W&K wedding and Diamond Jubilee has prompted a bit more interest on the site in royalty generally. The British press and public know almost nothing about royals in other countries.

I completely agree with you.

You're right, the most of my friends in the UK knows nothing about foreign royals, they can't even name the so-called minor royals in their own country.

Um, OK. I was a little put off by this comment; I'm not saying that you have to agree with me as we all have different opinions, but perhaps you could've just said that you disagree with me instead. This is an international opinion forum, so there are bound to be comments that we totally disagree with, as well as comments that we do agree with. I'm not telling you how to post as we can of course all post freely, it's just how this comment made me feel.

Perhaps I should've added the word "recently" to my post.

Well, I'm from the UK too and have never lived anywhere else, my family is also from the UK so of course I know that royals such as Mary and Letizia are unknown to the average person. Most of my friends are unaware of the more 'minor' members of 'our' RF too, e.g. one of my friends used to believe that Princess Anne was HM's sister until she met her. The Daily Mail actually have had more articles about the European Royals recently, they've become massive fans of Letizia and Maxima as they're the royals that feature in that paper the most.

Might it be because they have both recently become Queens and are relatively young?

Some royal watchers are determined to see a bit of Windsor/Spencer in him. It's like in-laws who insist a child looks like their side, etc.

I agree that he has always been a clone of Mike Middleton, even his body type is the same. Thanks heavens, it's nice to see some new blood injected in that clan.

I think he does have the charisma of his Uncle Harry and his grandmother Diana. He will be a charismatic figure and not simply famous for his position.

Wow - I would never have thought, that QEII would set foot in THAT house, where Middletons are staying

*irony of*

They could also write an articel about the Queen getting up in the morning and having breakfast, after or bevor brushing her teeth ... -

Just an intelligent guess ... nothing more.

YOUNGSTERS from Prestonpans Infant School sang for the Duchess of Cambridge at the launch of the Place2Be Awards at Kensington Palace last week.

The school’s P3 choir appeared in a video which was shown at the start of the awards ceremony, singing and dancing with their rendition of Stronger.

The awards by the children’s mental health charity recognise the work of schools who help support children and use Place2Be to draw up programmes to help those most in need.

I remember that. It most likely meant the world to the little "princess" and her family and I'll bet my last M&M that Kate remembers it well too.
