Well Tonya, I don't know if Kate herself is thinking of what Lady Jane and Diana faced, but I definitely think Charles is thinking about the public madness around his own courtship years since he seems very supportive of William's and Kate's desire for a low-key courtship.

I think in keeping with the type of girl that William would date, Kate is just uncomfortable with a lot of the attention. Even during the public storm, she didn't appear in public that often and when she did she was just as likely to ignore the cameras as acknowledge them.

Not everybody has the overwhelming desire to 'let loose', she is probably very relaxed and at home with the relationship she has with William and does not, at this time, feel any need to interact with the media or public. Why should she make her mistakes now, why should she make any at all? Not everyone goes through life making mistake after mistake, big or small, there are some really nice people out there you know, who don't binge drink, act the fool, steal, fight, shout and scream.

There are many young women and men who fall in love with the one person and make a success of their lives together. There are also very many men and women who met their partners at Uni, stayed faithfull while the other one completed their training (military or not) and despite all sorts of trials and tribulations are still just a boring, happily married couple, who are respected by the majority.

We don't know what arrangement she may have with William, we don't know whether they have an understanding or not. She may to some be boring, to others discreet, well mannered and well behaved. They appear to be happy together, so why can't people just accept that?

She could 'let loose' now and still 'mess up' once married, that is certainly not unheard of. Can you imagine the comments if the poor girl became involved in charity work... 'Oh, she's only trying to be like Diana', 'who does she think she is, she's not a princess yet', etc, etc, etc.

Although I miss glimpses of William and Kate's comings and goings, I'm really glad Kate has decided to lay low. It's driving the Kate haters crazy because they absolutely have no idea what she is up to. They want her to get a life? Well it looks like she is doing exactly that.

Anyway, I think her disappearance from public view is ... well... significant is the wrong word....perhaps...interesting. I suspect something is up. Although William has to graduate then go on to post-grad training/exercises, hopefully we won't have news on them for a while and they both remain out of the public view. I wish Kate and William the very best. This young woman has charmed a prince and knows how to stop tongues wagging as well. Smart girl. I love it.

Maybe she's up at Harewood helping with the decorators?

Is William at the end of course and really working hard so we don't heard much about him and his social life?

In most of the pictures she looks either exasperated or irritated. I also think she was not in the mood to be photographed when those pictures were taken.

Smart girl, yes. I would say too smart.If one day she marries william, I hope she changes a little so we can have a nicer princess.I hope she stops making those angry and unkind expressions, and I really hope we'll have a smilling princess, I think that's not asking too much, is it?

With a grandmother whose last name was Goldsmith, is it possible that Kate has some jewish roots?

There is always two sides of the story and we don't know what the photographer said to Kate. Or how many pics were disregarded because he wanted these pictures because negative things sell better. I believe it when she misbehaves in a video because then there is probably sufficient evidence to make up my mind about her behaviour (even TV lies!!!) But never because of a photo. Or haven't you never been "caught" on a picture in a situation where you'd sworn you were happy, relaxed etc...

Her outfit looks great though!

She looks like anyone else walking down the street. I don't go around smiling to myself when I'm out why should she. The photographer took pictures and probably they only printed the ones where she is barely smiling. Her not smiling does not make her a not nice person.
