Do you mean her and Henry?
I presume they know each other seeing as it was a fundrasing event in his honour.
Your reference to the other charity events Kate has attended what do you mean?

If I'm correct Henry studied at Eton with Prince William, so Kate could easily have been a friend of Henry. Although you don't have to know a person to attend a charity event. Maybe she just likes what the charity does and wanted to support the cause.

I think that he attended Ludgrove School with Harry not Eton with William.

If she has attended previous events, then I assume she knew or has come to know the family.

Yes, I have seen that look before about 27 years ago, IMO Diana was often looking at Charles with loving eyes while he looked elsewhere not that i think it is the same story at all, just an observation ...

Kate and her family spent Christmas in Cornwall this year on one of the Duchy of Cornwall properties. Photographers snapped her playing tennis with her siblings.

Of course her detractors will point out that you and I and anyone else can also rent this property...

This could mean - a) she is in close with the royals and thus had access to this home, b) she is trying too hard to link herself with the royals and thus hired a home owned by the Duchy, c) her family are trying to ensure that she becomes a princess so rented the home or d) it was a nice home in a nice location and sheer coincidence that it is owned by the Duchy.

It isn't as if this home is one where Charles etc actually lives but one of 100s he owns that are let to the public on a commercial basis.

Exactly. Prince Charles is a landlord, for goodness' sake. It's not like this is his only property. Nice picture of Kate, though.

It's a commercial property (through Duchy of Cornwall) that anyone from the general public can rent. You don't need to know the royal family to rent this property.

I'd think option A) is what seems more likely, perhaps it was just a nice gesture from Charles to people that probably had have nice gestures to his sos.

On another note I was expecting the mdeida circus that is Kate's birthday and nothing yet... I have to say Im kinda dissapointed :P

I wonder how the press found out they were there for Christmas? Will be interesting to see if she ends up on the cover of HELLO again.
