Can anyone tell me how did they detect that she was shopping?
There are no bags, nothing that would indicate she has bought anything.

Technically, getting a cup of coffee qualifies as a "shopping spree".

It's interesting that despite Kate being utterly devoted to William and putting her own life on hold, that they've now had two cooling-off periods in their no more than 3-year relationship (in 2004 and now in 2006). Arabella M. moved on from PW and the PR girl is doing something with her life. She wasn't going to put up with any disrespect due to his roving eye. Anna Sloane of Tennessee declined his offer to date after he became smitten with her during the 2004 cooling-off period with Kate; W&K got back together. Isabella Anstruther-etc. also doesn't return the apparent interest he has in her. She's denied knowing him even though gossip mags say yes, they have met. She's graduated from Edinburgh University and isn't pining for Wills.

So who's left? Kate. Waiting, waiting for a ring, not building a life of her own outside of her bf's life and his interests. And now word of this 2nd cooling-off period. It makes me wonder what Kate is going to do if her relationship with William doesn't work out? What if he dumps her? I think she'll be devastated having put all this effort into this one person and staked her future on him and her expectations don't pan out. If that happens I'll bet it will be spun that Kate dumped Wills but that won't change her hurt feelings after she's become dependent on her bf at the expense of building her own life and career.

I have searched the internet for a statement from William or Catherine, announcing a cooling off period but, surprise, surprise there hasn't been one.

Don't believe everything you hear/read in the media, what they don't know, they will invent!

IMO she needs a spark, some measure of vitatlity.. she just seems so ho-hum that people are starting to be bored I think. I know I am.

And how would he know.... it is all rumours put about by the media and so called 'friends' who want 5 minutes of fame.

If she was running a successful business, the media would be all over it and quickly.
How would they know anything about it. To get details of any company directors/trading as etc, you need the name of the company and there are millions of companies (limited or not) in the UK.

In regards to a statement of cooling off, well we have never had a statement of heating up (nor pictorial evidence for that matter, except a kiss on a cheek once or twice).
Therefore nobody can state that there have been cooling off periods!

Quote:
But i guess the media works both ways, we can't believe then that Kate is the greatest, most elegant and chic creature ever either and that it is a case of "when" not if either.
Some of them believe that and it does sell their rags. Some people prefer to make up their own minds as to whether she is elegant or chic. I might like an outfit one day and with her next outfit, think she has 'lost the plot'.

You have only to look at the headline manipulation regarding the latest trip to Chelsea with her mum, she was called a shopping queen and yet there wasn't a bag of shopping to be seen!

Nice to see them together, you see them on their own so often it is sometimes strange seeing them together.

I hope you are wrong only because if you are right, that would be very sad!
Nevertheless, your perspective is interesting and thought-provoking.
I wonder what is your take on the Jecca situation. Was Jecca chasing Wills or the other way around? The press said she was dating that OE Ropner guy, but still pushed the idea of a "fling" with William and being very vague. a common impression, I think, was that Wills and Kate had a "cooling off" and Wills wanted to jump start things with Jecca, but then Kate wanted him back? It is all very confusing, I think, because no one knows the real story. It's all just guesswork.

I've said before that I think it was interesting that William kept in contact with Jecca even though he was dating Kate. I think he obviously likes JC but she isn't interested in being hounded by the press. The tabloid press speculates a lot about the royals and some of what they write is false and way off base. But a lot of what they print is right on target as we've seen again and again, especially with the Charles & Diana disaster. If there is a lot of smoke, a lot of times there is a bonfire. The gossip press shouldn't always be discounted.

It's clear to me that PW likes to date around. There is nothing wrong with that. He is a 24-year-old young man. But if he is going out with or kissing other girls, it looks like he's trying to find a way out of his current relationship but doesn't know how to end it.

I don't understand why some people think they're having a "cooling-off" period. Just because they're not seen together in public by the media doesn't mean they're not together...

Maybe William keeps contact with Jecca because he considers her to be a friend. It is possible for men and women who had once dated or expressed an interest in each other to keep it on a friendship level.

Kate, doesn't appear to be threatened by their friendship...didn't they vacation together?

If he is kissing or going out with other girls, that could very well be true. The question is, do we actually know what he is doing?
We don't know what Prince William is actually doing in his personal life.
We do know that he continues to see Catherine Middleton, because we've seen recent photos of them together.
That's really about all we have to go on.

William and Kate could have an open relationship where they take periods to be with other people but always come back after a time. I've got several friends who do it and I've done it myself in the past so maybe thats what they've agreed upon.

Well said Zonk!

It is very possible to stay friends with ex's of any description and I believe you are right about them all holidaying together.

As he is nearing the end of his training, I would be amazed if he has the time or the energy to be dating or kissing other girls!
