I think I might have done Ysbel, sorry. I was in a hurry and didn't bother to read what else had been written.

Thank You:)

It is a very good article and seems to reinforce what most people have been saying, that he would not want to get engaged, only to disappear for 4 years and not see much of Kate.

Time will tell.

I love her boots and coat! The green scarf also adds a nice touch of color. I think her dressing has improved from her cowboy days. She looks more classy.

Same here! Her dressing definitely has improved and the scarf is a great color on her. (imo)

Those photos look like they have been taken by the paparazzis.

I think its is a total intrusion on a person's privacy to have such photos taken and find it quite hypocritical of those who claim to have lots of love and respect for Kate and yet seem to have no problem with the press hounding her and profiting from following her day and night. These people probably do not know what ethics means.

To have paparazzi on royals is bad enough (please remember that Di's fatal crash happened just when she was trying to escape these ruthless photographers) but to have them on a person who is not actually royal I find outrigious.

Anyway, sorry to rain on your parade, please continue to take pleasure in these illegitimate pictures of an innocent woman going about her daily life. And who knows, may be this pretty face secretly enjoys the attention!

I am sure Kate gets lots of benefits from being linked to William so I will not lose any sleep over her getting photographed. As long as she does not get hurt then she will just have to live with it. In fact she always seems very plesant in the photos (not angry or aggressive) sometimes I think it is everyone else getting annoyed over the press and Kate herself is just dealing with it.

And lets not bring up the whole Diana issue, out of respect of the dead I am not going to say what I really think but I will say many things led to her death and it can not all be the fault of the paps.

I hate how the press say she is dressing like a Princess in waiting, if that is the case then I have many, many friends who are going to marry a Prince!

You are probably right about Kate just dealing with it. I got upset for her, when they took photos of her trying dresses on, I think that is over the top.
I absolutely love your last paragraph and oh so true!

indeed. she dresses well and i dont think she has really made any changes to her style over the years as media interest in her grew. she is beautiful, she has money and good taste. things which often dont go together. she is very lucky.

Of course, most people linked to royalty do benefit from it in one way or another.

Thanks for your concern, I never loose sleep over anything except exams! :)

I agree. What else could she do? If she remain the gf/partner of William, then its part of the package.

I think she is a very clever woman. If she shows any sign of anger, frustration or bad temper, she'll only be giving away a free story to the press, giving them an excuse to exploit her again.

I also think its still quite a novelty to her, and if the press intrusions etc continue over time and intensifies eventually we will see her having a bad day.

I can see why people around her would be annoyed. They might be annoyed for her, eg William is very protective of her and others probably don't want to have a picture of them in The Sun either (which imo is a good sign of a true friend).

I was trying to demonstrate the extent to which the paps will go to get their prize - an exclusive photo. Was not trying to bring up Di in an controversial fashion, but she happens to have had the most extreme case of it. Another example would be Princess Caroline of Monaco who has also sued the press in the past for intrusion into her private life.

And where does it stop? Where do we draw the line?

To me, the photos of her trying on dresses was just terrible intrusion. I would be pretty mad if someone took photos of members of my family trying on clothes. And it does not matter that she was decent and fully dressed, the concept itself is totally unexceptable.

May be the photos look innocent to us, but how do we really know what it is like to be followed ALL the time? This is what I am trying to say.

Don't get too mad, afterall the tabloids will write what ever will sell papers. They are not exactly going for editorial quality!
