I much prefer this method over the 'child actor' model used by some other royals. I think the best preparation for G&C is to have as normal a childhood as possible. The Queen seems to think so as well.

I think they're great parents from the snippets we learn.

I think using the term "child actor" is going to far. The royals I think your talking about seem to me to be excellent parents with very happy settled children. Will and Kate choose to do it another way doesn't make others wrong.

Introducing their child/ren to the press and public engagements from an early age and thus making them comfortable with their future roles is hardly a "child actor model". It clearly works for them as all the royal child/ren I can imagine you are referring to are happy, well-rounded and greet photographers and the public with a smile.

I have no doubt that William and Catherine too think their way works for them and that's really what matters, isn't it? No one is more fit to judge how William and Catherine's children cope best with the press than William and Catherine themselves – that goes for all royal parents. I trust that all of them use the model that suits their children the best.

Katie Nicholl is reporting that Prince George and Princess Charlotte are off to Scotland, in September, to see the Queen.

A Royalista article about the lethal botanic threat to the lives of George & Charlotte, with the culprit being shown: Poisonous tree at Anmer Hall considered a danger to Prince George | Royalista
Few people realize how cunning trees are. You go about minding your own business and all of a sudden a tree has sneaked up on you.
It turns out that not only are the leaved hoodlums targeting the children, but also the family pet...
- I learn elsewhere the trees are a branch of a gang.

COMPLETELY off topic (sorry mods) but my university training prepared me to be be able to comment on this. Yew berry SEEDS are toxic, but the soft, red outer coating is quite sweet and delicious. So, as long as you pop a yew berry and suck off the soft bits and spit out the seed, you are safe. And happy becasue the taste is a treat. It's a bit like spitting out watermelon seeds.

This is indeed shocking.
I've read about the danger of yew trees in a leaflet. And I think it's about time someone starts an investigation to get to the root of this problem.

It puts William Tell and Robin Hood with their yew bows in a completely different light, doesn't it?

That evil Laburnum doesn't look to be so large that removing it would be much of a challenge, if removal were deemed necessary. It's possible it's one of the cultivars that doesn't produce many seeds and maybe the threat can be easily controlled by nipping off such seeds as do form. Or perhaps the children could just be kept away from the tree while they are too young as to be trusted to heed a warning about the danger it pose to them.

The planning documents submitted and approved are quite clear that the laburnum is on the chopping block. That whole copse of trees will be removed as they are exactly where the new court will be located.

Basically, this is nothing more than a silly season article. The Express reporter read the documents, realized that the laburnum was poisonous, and turned it into copy for the august royal dry spell. And, of course, it worked -- it got people talking, and turned into page views for the paper.

With that said, I thought I remembered it being that more yellow one down at the south east corner of the garden (in the left, directly to the left of the circled tree). However, the documents don't seem to be searchable on the council website anymore.

Ha! If Kate has stomach ache and touches her tummy the bookies are taking bets baby names and chances of twins. Nothing is to trivial for a story!

Princess Charlotte can now go adorably mad for plaid.

A Canadian bagpipe band gifted the nearly 4-month-old royal with a tartan design during a a visit to see her great-grandmother Queen Elizabeth, 89, last week.

The pinafore dress was designed by one of the Sons of Scotland Pipe Band, who made their third performance at Balmoral Castle, where the Queen and her family spend every summer.

Band member Bethany Bisaillion told Canada AM that the dress is in "Maple Leaf" tartan, matching the Scottish theme. "We hope that she gets it in time that she doesn’t grow out of it!" she said.

Talk about sibling rivalry! Prince George will be king one day, but his baby sister is where the money is.

The youngest member of the royal family, four-month old Princess Charlotte, will be worth nearly $5 billion to the British economy, according to Brand Finance. Her brother? A mere $3.6 billion.

True, the princess is still trailing her mother Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, whose contribution is estimated at $7.2 billion. But given Charlotte has only appeared in public twice -- the day she was born, and during her christening -- the value she's already generating for British business is impressive.

Well, surprise! Apparently the intimidating letter was no use. A pic or two of Charlotte with George and the nanny have appeared on the australian magazine...

Well, soon the children will be kept behind closed doors. It's horrible that they can't go out, and enjoy some fun activities without the paps trailing behind. I don't care how many official pictures are released, because these vultures just won't stop the hounding. I won't blame William, and Catherine choosing to organize playgroups, and have things like petting zoos come to them in Amner Hall to keep the paps away.
