Kate is being CRUCIFIED at other boards for the obvious Virgin hand gesture and for attending the party. I swear the depths of hatred some people have for her is unsettling. At first they damn her for being "fake" and prim and proper. When she goes out and kicks up her heels, she is damned by these same people for that.

Truly if you all read other boards where hatred towards Kate Middleton knows no bounds you'd be flabbergasted.

Looks like they really crucify her for nothing. First, they made everything up as though she was insulting the media and making rud hand gestures and then, they say it was not rude at all and she was just showing her support for Richard Branson.

Prince William's girlfriend makes rude gesture to photographers

But the 23-year-old might not have been quite as rude as first appeared - she was actually making a V sign to show her support for Richard Branson's Virgin organisation

Let's settle down, folks. The temperature is getting a little overheated here.

I'll add my 2 cents to the bit about the 'V':
We have no idea what Kate was doing. Personally, I think the photo was just bad timing - she could have been rearranging her bag on her arm, about to flick her hair out of her eyes, be wiggling to keep her fingers warm - who knows! Photographers can get some good photos from a split second movement. I don't think there is anyway that Kate would have been giving them a rude gesture -she would have gone out that night knowing that there would be photographers around, its not like they have caught her out in private and given her a fright and she has reacted. I don't think royals and their girlfriends are perfect, but I think Kate has been very well mannered and well behaved up until now, and I can't see why she would suddenly change

That Sun story about the V is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. Who the hell cares that she made the V sign? I don't understand, why is that offensive? It's just a stupid "peace" sign. I don't see anything tacky or offensive about it. Anyone who says there is something wrong here is analyzing Kate way too much. I doubt she puts so much thought or intentions into these everyday gestures.

One observation I have made from this entire deluge of press coverage of Kate Middleton is just how easily (and harshly) the media can turn on a person. Kate Middleton probably has not changed one iota but the press is shifting her image from "sensible" Kate to "partygirl" Kate just to stir the waters and sell papers.

Yes I like her and she's been demure so far, but she does need to tone down the partying a little. Otherwise I agree and wish her and William the best as well.

Leave kate and william alone as long as they are not engaged and they are not married. I just feel tired of the press about reporting about William's love life and looking for their next queen. The press should look back the courtship of William's parents and stop doing anything to push them to marry or prevent them to marry. Marriage is about the life and if Kate really wants to be William's wife and the next Queen, she would know how to show her suitablity to fit in the role.

If you read the article carefully you can see that it is only implied that Kate and the princes had to "wait" till they could leave the club - they obviously were there and there was a brawl but who knows if they even realized that there was a problem outside? And what does "outside" mean, anyway? Right at the front door? Or at the next corner?

For me this is just another article in the campaign to make news headlines out of "party-girl Kate". And already it works when you read some of the comments here: that it is not dignified etc.... But should she stay at home all the time? Or is it not that the media should let her be and enjoy her life?

Kate isn't even William's wife and look how famous she is. Her "current events" threads fill up like nobody's business. We can't get enough of her here. Imagine what things will be like when/if she marries William, or for the woman who eventually does marry him! It will be 20x the mania surrounding Crown Princess Mary of Denmark. The dresses, the jewels, the tiaras! I can't wait!!

what are you talking about I think kate had it very easy I think the press is very easy on her really if I had to write articles on kate I wouldn't be so nice.

And I don't think the forums are that hard on kate it could be worse I read forums about chelsy with deathtreaths and those kind of things. And no article I read said that kate was the party girl only chelsy. I don't know I think that people are being soft on kate. Wich is good I think.

Just a reminder folks....this isn't a competition between Chelsy and Kate. And its not a competition between Kate and Diana either. Let's keep Chelsy in the Chelsy thread and Kate in the Kate thread and keep the thread to their current events.

Personally, I am burning up the Kate Middleton threads because I always wanted to date a Prince, fall in love with a Prince, and marry a Prince. I married a Prince, but not a Royal one :). My point is that if I bash Kate it is because I AM JEALOUS OF KATE. Otherwise I am content just "watching" her in the spirit described by Casiraghi Trio.

Do you think some of the criticism towards her has to do with jealously?
