Hmm the BBC now has the story as well,but they don't mention numbers. We should start a poll about how many she'll have by the end of today? 48? Ohhh tabloids.

A typical example in Regardez's post. The BBC says that Kate got the police protection but then goes on to say she was with Prince William the whole time! So the Prince is being escorted to the car with Kate, but apparently it's Kate who's getting the protection!

They say she has been trailed day and night since she left university... I hope he asks her soon so she can move into Clarence House and get some privacy.

In just one hour of "discussion" 16 posts were removed.

We understand the mere mention of Ms Middleton arouses strong passions in some members, but the bitterness which comes through in many of the posts (and the ensuing ugliness) is becoming very tiresome.

my question to people that have issues with catherine having police protection is this: don't you think that merely as a human being she should have the right to feel safe? i can't understand why this would bother anyone anti catherine or otherwise? regardless of the fact that the public pays for it she shouldn't be harrassed when she's going about her life, especially when she's a private citizen. and remember, her parents are tax payers as well so that argument goes both way. i agree with skydragon, let the editors pay for it and we'll soon see a change in the way they get their pictures.

Can't we all agree to talk here only about proven facts and not take unreliable content from tabloids and use it to bash Ms. Middleton? (Didn't mean that as an answer to your post, Duchess. We were writing and posting at the same time, obviously.)

I for one still wait for an official statement that Catherine Middleton receives personal police protection....

Ah, but speculation provides a much greater opportunity for creativity!

Oh no, please no new discussions about her holiday plans... Why Poland, anyway? Though I was there two years ago and loved it!

I'm projecting again. A former roommate of mine was from there and I've always wanted to visit!

Here here Duchess, Skydragon and Warren. But Warren, if you think it gets nasty here, you should read some other boards brimming with psychos and their hatred of Kate Middleton. Just really irrational and really vicious remarks. I'm not surprised Kate is loaded up with security. From what I read at other boards, there are alot of sickos out here that I am convinced would do this girl harm if they thought they could get away with it. Not to mention stalkers, all kind of wackos who know where she lives and where she works. Bet the ranch she has received threats as well. She handles it all very well publicly anyway.

The photographers are now camped outside her front door. How many pics can they take of Kate/Catherine leaving for work and returning home each day? What newspaper would buy or publish such pics on a daily basis?

So, what's the agenda here? Are they hoping she'll swear at them, give them the finger, not put on her seatbelt, prang the car, shout, cry, break down, throw a tantrum? Are they trying to unsettle her so they can get the magic shot of "Kate loses it!" to make every London tabloid front page? Have the writers already written the "No Engagement - Kate's Despair" story, and are waiting for the right photo?

Unless the London newspaper-buying public is demanding to see pictures of Kate Middleton walking in and out of her front door every day of the week, the photographers are staking her out for another reason.

IMHO they wait for something to happen - it doesn't matter what. remember the stories about Charles and how he was pressured into popping the question to Diana when the media started stalking her? They try the same game again. Last time it worked...

Well,I for one feel for the girl.

Yes, she should expect the media and Britain to want to be somewhat interested. But really, photographers camped outside your door! She must be terrified. We've learned nothing from Diana Chronicles.

It's a cat & mouse game. So far I think Kate and William are playing it fairly well. In a perfect world I don't think they'll get engaged for another couple of years, but I will be happy if I'm wrong. Based on nothing but thin air and tabloid reports (ok, that's redundant), she seems to be his friend first and a loyal confidante. They seem well-suited and make a handsome couple. I hope this frenzied speculation doesn't harm their relationship.

Gotta go work on a project. Ahh in my next life I'll be a young pretty co-ed at St. Andy's and hook Will & Kate's grandson. LOL

I'm just guessing here, but yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

It's a business, and businesses of all kinds are ruthless, unfortunately.

I've just seen live coverage on Sky News via satellite about the situation with catherine - and the questions of their anchorman were pretty tough when it came to the topic: Didn't they learn from Diana's death? So IMHO we see that the persistence of William and Catherine not to disclose anything about their private life and just let things hapen may bring "the public" (aka "the media") to their help: how long will people enjoy watching the harrassment of a young, innocent woman, who did nothing wrong but loving their future king?

Look - let's all stop feeling sorry for Kate shall we? When you date a Prince, you get photographed and that is the way the world works. It may not be right, it may not be fair but life isn't fair. People with more talent and more fame than Kate Middleton have lived their lives in the media glare and coped, now it's her turn. She can't be a Princess-in-waiting and a private citizen and if she can't hack that then she better find someone else to marry. End of.
