It's so difficult losing a grandparent. I lost my two grandmothers within three weeks which was devastating. I wish them all the best.

If this is true, I say good for Kate! If it's actually true and not just tabloid junk, then she's showing that she is aware of the fact that public opinion counts, and she wants it known that nothing she does is being supported by public funds or taxes. I applaud her.

Also, if the Palace really DOES want her to have a bodyguard, what does that mean for her relationship with William? Apparently, she is very close and possibly important to the BRF?

No offense or anything, but I don't think terrorist really have her on their target list. I don't think declining a body guard really represents a sign of independence.

Laraib,

I don't think terrorists have her on their lists either, but she COULD have accepted the offer, and she had enough good sense not to.... (that's if the story is even true!)

I can't believe this! But someone actually wrote a book about Kate. What could they possibly say for 288 pages? Ick. I wonder if people will actually buy this

Regardez,

Wow! I wonder what this means !! Here is the title: William's Princess: The True Story of the Romance That Will Change the Monarchy (Hardcover)
by Robert Jobson
this is the same link that Regardez posted http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/184...=true&n=283155
I wonder why the BRF is allowing this to be published?

Can the BRF really control what's being published? IMO, I don't think they would want this to be published but it's not like they can stop it.

True, but the vultures are really coming out early! You would think they would wait to see if the relationship actually lasts before writing a book about it!

We would think so but apparently not. I was flipping through Royalty Magazine the other day and they say that since Kate was invited to Cheltenham and Laura Parker Bowles's wedding, she's "in." I don't think these magazines realize that both haven't even hit 25 yet. I wouldn't mind William and Kate getting married but I think they still have at least a year more in them for dating. Also, I think it's kind of weird to write a biography of Kate before they're married. If they don't get married, it's going to be kind of weird for William's future wife to have a biography of an ex-girlfriend floating around titled William's Princess.

soCal girl,

You are too right!
I actually like Kate, but you are sooo correct

WHAT???!!!!! Did I miss something?? A book....about.....Kate.... as in Middleton... as in the girl dating william??? Oh GOD Just when you thought everyone was laying low and the couple was being given space BAM there is a book. Just by the synopsis of the book, it doesn't seem that realiable cause half the stuff has already been denied by the both parties so I wonder where did this guy, who apparently has A LOT of time on his hands got all his information from??? WOW, Kate must be really happy. This REALLY secures her chance of getting hitched with Willaim in my eyes.

Oh God! That writer must be really weird to write book about something, what still haven't happen. William still isn't king and Kate isn't still his wife. They are not engaged. And in this time I hear more and more rumours about their break and about problems in their relationship.

I agree - the author really jumped the gun on this "story". They haven't even gone to an event together as a couple. They are usually seen together going out in a group or at events with a lot of other people around. Harry and Chelsy have at least kissed in public!

Perhaps we here in the forum should consolidate our opinions in this forum about Kate and release it as a book! The money that we can maybe make!

Then we could all receive "Royalties" !

Has this ever been done before?

Has a book about the romance between a royal and his or her (respective) girlfriend or boyfriend been released prior to any official engagement announcements being made? This seems highly unusual to me.
