I may be dating myself but I was around before Princess Diana's engagement and the press was basically first interested in Diana because she was Prince Charles' girlfriend. In the U.S., the papers really didn't pick up interest until the engagement was announced. In fact the last I heard the papers were marrying Charles off to Marie-Astrid of Luxembourg when I turned around and found out he had engaged himself to Lady Diana Spencer. It was only after the engagement that the U.S. papers started detailing their courtship.

Charles' girlfriend who got the biggest press I thought was Lady Jane Wellesley. Her story got picked up by the American media and was featured in several general interest women's magazines for a year or more. Having the colorful Duke of Wellington as father didn't help her keep a low profile.

The U.S. papers have already started talking about Kate. Remember the People cover a few months ago?

I think she's trying to say that there is not that much publicity on their relationship here in the U.S. like in england. I think here we don't care too much about royalty compared to hollywood. When charles and camilla came here they were only on the news for two days:when they arrived to NY and when they met the president. And really when they met the prsident they were just talking about what she wored compared to Lady bush. So no we don't get that much info on them.

Exactly.Will and Kate are not as huge of a deal as in England or rest of the Europe.Many people don't even remember Prince William.:)

It's a test by fire for Kate. The longer she stays in the relationship, the more she will be scrutinized by the media, which will basically equal her life if she marries William. So, in my opinion, if she keeps handling it well, the prospects of a possible marriage increase.

I think Kate is quite charming and a very nice girl. She seems to be good for Prince William. I really like her...down to earth and cute. Good for William.

The video worked the first time for me, but didn't appear the second. So it's a Sky News site downloading issue.

Well that's hardly surprising, he's a British prince, of course the media in the UK are going to be more interested in him than the media in say the US.

My point was that many people think that Will and Kate are on the cover of US weekly, and I was trying to say that wasn't the case.:)

so she didnt join the family for Christmas, right? I wonder if the queen inviting her to spend Christmas with them was just a rumour, or maybe it was true and Kate declined...although inviting her when shes just the girlfriend isnt right, since this is the firts year they've invited Camilla; and she's been around for 30 years!

Rumour has it cd 1 that Kate joined William at Sandringham on Boxing Day and they stayed in a cottage on the estate. However, to my knowledge no pictures have emerged of Kate at Sandringham?

Then, William and Kate went skiing.

Well what I was really trying to say that the U.S. media was not interested in Diana before her engagement was announced and Diana definitely became a media darling. So its not a bad reflection on Kate that the U.S. press is not that interested in her now. They'll probably pick up interest when an engagement is announced whether William decides to get married with Kate or another girl.

exactly. after the engagement all hell will break loose.

i think Kate's gotten pretty good play in the U.S. media considering her low profile.
