Oh boy, this is getting serious, I mean, okay, no need to rush, and they are young and all that, but im sure Prince Charles' girlfriends NEVER got training of any sort, u know, how to handle media and stuff. Or did they? Can we name one girlfriend who was thought to be the one, and they media went into a frenzy about her, but it was all just hype?

cd1, you're right, none of Prince Charles' girlfriends got media training. If they had, Sarah Spencer might have had some discretion and would have married him before Diana got a chance!

But it seems, in my recollection, that all of Charles' girlfriends got hype: Davina Sheffield, Whiplash (forgot her real name)Wallace, Lady Jane Wellesley, Sarah Spencer, and ultimately Diana. And it only got worse as Charles got older because it was inevitable that he had to marry somebody.

Just hope that William and Kate take their time and don't let people push them into a marriage they're not ready for.

I don't know why is she being given training, I for one don't care about her personal or up comming life.However I can understand their concern, after Diana they just want to play it safe.

Thank-you!:)

I understand about traing Kate, but it seems they to far and too fast. How do they know if Wills and Kate are even going to last!

I think they are going very fast. College romances are one thing, but now that college is over they have to really focus on their lives and independance.

I think it's smart to give media training. Regardless of how long the romance lasts, and whether they ultimately marry, they are going to be living together, so at least for the next few months (years?) she is going to be followed by the press.

Diana and Fergie complained (unendingly) about getting no help from the Palace and having to figure it out on their own. So help with something the Palace knows will be a problem (the press) makes sense and will be very helpful to Kate.

Lastly, we don't really know what "media training" means - someday sitting down with her for 30 minutes and and saying don't say anything revealing about Wills, about anyone in the Family, about yourself. Or something more thorough: how to dress in public/for the camera, how to present yourself, how to answer questions with style and substance, mannerisms to be aware of; practicing being on camera, followed/hounded, and how to react, etc.

Media training makes sense on many levels. For those listed above, and if for none other then, Kate is going to be known for the rest of her life (whether she were to marry William or not) as a girlfriend of a future King.

Prince Charles ex-girlfriends get little media checkins once in a long while...so after they break up and Will moves on she wont have that much attention anymore. It would be sad to be known the rest of your life as someones girlfriend.

I would not be too sad about it, there are lots of people who will adore her for it, untill she is a very, very old lady.
And he might marry her still.

I don't get what it is about Kate that makes everyone think she would be popular. She just seems bland to me. Am I missing something?
