It was bound to start eventually, wasn't it? It brings me back to when the press started in on Charles and Diana's marriage, and we know that the press comment certainly didn't help there. William and Kate are much stronger as a couple, fortunately.

Camilla Tominey has always been one of the sleazier reporters. If William and Kate aren't dancing to her tune then they must be doing something right.

William and Kate are a safe and loving couple, hardly tabloid worthy so Tominey must manufacturer outrage

She forgets W&K are the two most popular members of the BRF

I really don't think Camilla Tominey is unfairly attacking William and Catherine. I may not totally agree with her, but I understand what she's getting at though.

General News and Information for the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Family

Why do they need to update that George is talking? Do we know that CT's kid is talking? We get little bits about him from his parents when they are talking to people they meet at engagements.

What are W&K suppose to do while on the Jumbotron ? They waved. The whole Beyoncé Jay Z meeting had cameras and boom mikes five deep around them. Not a normal situation.

How are they supposed to be spontaneous on this recent trip? W&K let their personality out when they are participating in their engagements such as the dragon boat or dancing in grass skirts in the South Pacific or sailing in NZ. The NY trip wasn't that type of tour.

I forgot to mention that in Spring 2012, Camilla Tominey also compared them not telling the press Lupo's name to the Abdication Crisis of 1936.

Lol, I totally forgot about that one. In 1936, the British press totally covered up reporting about Mrs Simpsons while it was being reported in the rest of the world especially the US. Compare that to a dog's name that she told to a sick kid instead of the press.

I thought Kate looked really starstrucked meeting Beyonce and Jay Z. I thought Kate looked more nervous than normal during this trip. The nature of this tour was nothing like their previous tours where they where there for a few weeks.

I amazed that they ever leave the house. With Kate everything she says, wears, body language, hairstyle, etc... is scrutinized and commented on from people all other the world who don't know her and mostly likely never meet her. I would be in a ball somewhere.

The Cambridges are not celebrities, so they don't need to act as if they are. Honestly, if this couple was anything like Beyoncé and Jay-Z, I'd lose respect for them. They're in a league that the two rap stars couldn't handle, and that's that. The Cambridges have class, and charisma, so I don't see a need for them to 'loosen up'. Their great personalities shine when, and where it counts most. Who cares if they're not seen as 'cool' by the likes of this obnoxious reporter and the two rappers?

Although I do believe it was a tongue in cheek kinda thing, I had to laugh at the title of one article I read. Simply stated Willam and Kate split up in USA.
The article was just referring to William being in DC while Kate was in NYC.

I read one blogger saying William and Rebecca were hooking up because she went to Malta with him and Kate was hiding at home faking illness. It was one of the stupidest things that I ever read other than the Globe's royal headlines.

I have a hunch that for Catherine the priority is her marriage. William takes precedence in all ways for her. She is being a good spouse. I think she takes her cues from William. She will be/do more or less publicly as he decides it will go. That said, I think criticizing Catherine about what she does or does not do is really unfair to her. It's not something that is in her power. JMO. William only should be 'fair game'. Not his wife.

Did anyone read the article? Pure rubbish. What are we coming to that attacking W&K for being 'not being cool enough' to realise they were on the jumbo tron passes as legitimate criticism.

Given what is happening with the BRF of late, the press must be out in left field to have this even resister on their radar

I think William & Catherine are pretty cool people and that's one of the reasons why people love them.

I do agree that it would be nice to see Catherine in a more established royal role though.

But its a backward approach though. Camiila has no 'role' despite being married to the heir to the throne. Camilla is seemingly allowed to plod along in the background and live in the shadow of Prince Charles.

Maybe if Camilla was a more compelling Princess of Wales the press wouldn't need Kate to take up the slack

Kate should be allowed to decide for herself what she thinks her role should be

What more can Camilla do be a "more compelling Princess of Wales"?
