Not all of William's girlfriends are going to be treated equally by the press or by William because they're all different people and William was at a different time of his life with each one.
People learn and grow, especially a young man in his twenties.
I think that you and I are just going to have to agree to disagree with this, because I still don't think that Kate should be given any special privileges, especially if the taxpayers have to pay for whatever special treatment that Kate might be given. William doesn't have access to his bank accounts until he is 25, so I don't think that this money will be coming from him. And he's been denied obtaining access to his accounts twice now, so I don't think it's going to happen in the near future.
And William is older now yes, but he also knows that the press are going to be on him now that he's done with school, and you can bet that Kate knew this was going to happen as well, so she shouldn't have acted so surprised. Every other prince and princess has had to face the problems that William is facing, and Harry even has had to face the problems much worse than what William is facing.
So, if anyone can give me one good reason why William should be treated differently than Harry or any other royal family member, please tell me? Maybe you'll help convince me otherwise, but as far as I can tell... other men and women that are heir to the thrones are doing just fine, especially the ones that have inherited the throne from an unusual death of their parent. So, I just don't understand this until someone has a good reason why William and Kate should be treated differently than anyone else. It just doesn't make any sense to me is all I'm trying to say.
