One more thing to add...

I love how some are saying Kate needs to do what Diana did and spend the first year getting to know the UK. One small problem w/saying that. From what I've read over the years, that first overseas visit to Australia was actually supposed to happen the Spring/Summer of 1982. The birth of a certain Prince ended up taking place instead, so the Aussie/New Zealand tour ended up needing to be pushed back.

If she hadn't become pregnant w/William, Diana would have experienced her first overseas tour far sooner than she did. All of the new Royal Brides have to do it at some point and I just don't get why some are up in arms over all of this.

Yes, I agree. I can't even think of a home-grown celebrity/gossip magazine, come to think of it. We seem to depend more on American magazines like People and US and all the other ones.There's Hello! Canada, but the coverage there isn't nasty. And there's E! Canada as well. But I'd say that a lot of our tabloid coverage is imported.

OK, I stand corrected.

I agree. I also think the actress is rather short isn't Kate 5'10 or 5'11. This girl from what I looked up is not even 5'7. It might have been a nice role for a taller then average girl to get.

Today, they are going to St. Andrews tomorrow.

Does anyone have an idea at what time today's event will take place?

Skippy, according to Skynews the event starts at 1:00.

#Royal – tweeting from royal visit to lifeboat station today will be troublesome – virtually no mobile signal! Watch it live on Sky News 1pm
Oops, I see rossop answered already.

According to Richard Palmer, so far there are around 500 people waiting to see them. He also said that Kate is expected to do her first walkabout today.

If anyone is in the US, the Today Show just said they were going to show some of the event.

BBC just had a live report from Angelsey & event isn't starting yet, just doing build up etc. Crowds are there though already. 2pm appears to be the expected time of everything starting.

I just realized I can only watch Sky News International on my laptop which only seems to repeat the same thing - minus any Anglesey news.

Any chance for me to watch from Europe?

Oh not sure, obviously being in UK the BBC works fine for me but not for those outside UK. Not sure about live stream websites for news channels I'm afraid...you could maybe try ITV1 (http://www.itv.com/watchitv/), they're showing something of the event too but no idea if their website video works outside UK.

They're there, shaking hands, talking to officials etc. Kate's got her hair tied back & I don't think she is wearing THE boots Love her coat.
