it's unlikely that catherine was warned off her choice as a photograper for a career. lord snowdon is a photographer and prince andrew is also a photographer so it's obviously not consider an inappropriate career choice.

I doubt it's true as well, and it made me think of something funny.
You know the old story of the kid who didn't get his homework assignment done and tells his teacher, "I did finish my homework, honest I did, but my dog ate it!"
This story made me think of that. Kate telling everyone "William bought me a VERY expensive pair of antique earrings, honest he did, but my dog ate them and that's why I can't show them to you."

There is a major difference here though - Snowdon was already a well known photographer before entering the royal family and Andrew is only a part-timer but was also born royal.

Kate would be accused of cashing in on being William's girlfriend if she tried to establish herself in any form of business. Had she already been a photographer when she started dating William there wouldn't be a problem but there is a problem for her trying to start one. Remember the controversy a year or so ago when the family were accused of using her connections to promote their party pieces line by having 'princess' themed party stuff for little girls. There would be abslutlely nothing wrong with that as it would be a pretty standard theme for little girls' parties but even over that the family were accused of using her position to promote their business. How much worse would it be if she was trying to start any business from scratch?

Name drop of Princess Margaret in there.

And at Christmas the Middletons enjoyed a royal treat when they "rented" Prince Charles's Restormel Manor in Cornwall.
I think they are trying to hint that it was a freebie holiday.

The e-mails following that article show that she is not popular with a significant number of people.

NOW is after Kate Middleton. They say she is a Wagg because of three vacations since December. Weren't two with Prince William? I think they cut Prince William out of the NOW photo in above article. I wonder why NOW is doing this?

I haven't seen any articles to say she's a wag, and none to say she was in Mustique.
There is nothing in this thread, to say she went on any holidays with William.

Some of the people who have posted comments on the bottom of the NOW article really don't understand what they are saying.

One mentions that Kate must be upset that William is in Courchevel when she is in the alps.
If they had bothered to check, they would see that Kate and William are together and that Courchevel is in the alps.

It is possible that, the picture is just of Kate. As they didn't realise William was in Courchevel with her.

The NOW has got an agenda to bad mouth Ms Middleton. Here some examples from the article "Last month Kate followed in the footsteps of original party Princess Margaret with a trip to Mustique." That does not sound that they don't think of her as a wag. Also, the article said it was the third luxury vacation since December that she took. I only read the NOW article and got the wag status from it and not suitable to be a princess. Aren't the royals cutting back on vacations, spending and carbon blue print right now?

I did not read the posted comments on the botton of the NOW article.

Dictionary: British Slang. to play truant; play hooky. I used the term wag as a woman that does nothing but enjoy a luxury life of partying, shopping and vacationing.

My added extra about the comments below the article weren't directed at you, they were just an added extra.

The NOW i know has a reputation for bad mouthing her, but it's not a very respectable tabloid. Very trashy.
There is no proof that I can find that she has been on two other holidays other than this one. Her and William visit Mustique last August and that was it.

Plus as we've seen this one is with Prince William not her parents, as the NOW article says.

The royals are, but Kate isn't a royal, if she has the money to go on holiday, (from what i've seen first since last august), she has the right to do so.

Prince Andrew and the girls went skiing last month, as did Edward, Sophie, Louise and James.

In July 2006 the sun posted a RAGs (Royals and Girlfriend article).
Most dictionary definitions says its an acronym for the wives and girlfriends of footballers coined in the 2006 fifa world cup.

Thanks for the update. I agree with you.
