You are kidding aren't you? When Charles was young and single he was far, far more popular than William is now. He was The Prince of Wales and he really was the bee's knees. Andrew was too young to give him any competition.

Why must everything be a comparison/compeititon?

This is not the Charles and Diana thread but the William and Catherine thread.

The whole monarchy was more popular back them. it's unfair to compare both of them , IMO.
William has a great amount of charm, and Catherine will be a great asset


Nice turn out!

Wow! Can't say they aren't generating public interest considering the size of the crowds that have gathered at both events. Kate is doing a remarkable job thus far. She seems at ease and warm with the public. Now that she is out of the shadows, I think everyone is quite surprised and impressed at how confident and natural she is at this. I know I am!

She looks great at the university - hair down is definitely her signature look. They make a great pair and seem to work well together.

Now that Ms. Middleton is out of the shadows it does not surprise me that she is confident and a natural at the "princess job". If she can always smile in photos for the last 8 or so years I just knew she would do a wonderful job with Prince William.

Are they now heading to London to sign the condolence book for the NZ earthquake victims?

Was it really that way or was that what was reported in the papers?

But even if it happened that way: The difference is that Diana was such a young lady while Charles already was a well-established man far older than her. No wonder this young fairytale princess drew the crowds. Especially as she worked with the media instead of ignoring them.

William and Catherine will age together and I don't see Catherine doing anything to upstage William. On the contrary, she has shown that she knows exactly how to avoid the media and how to keep the public focused on the idea of William and her as a team. She certainly is not playing for the ranks but does a good job on being friendly and dignified.

I don't know whether to answer or not, but it wasn't reported. I heard it live on BBC News 24, they were walking around and the newsreader said "this reminds me of when Charles and Diana used to go on walk abouts and the crowds used to scream for Diana and Charles (the oldy) would be ignored" - that was the jist of it. I'll try and find a clip or something.

The Telegraph article that someone linked earlier mentioned that they would be there.

Quote:
Today (FRI) they will travel to the University of St Andrews, where they met as students in 2001, and where the Prince will formally be announced as patron of the 600th Anniversary Appeal.

They are also expected to join Prince Harry at New Zealand House in London to sign a book of condolence for victims of the earthquake.
Also, Richard Palmer tweeted that they would be signing the book today.

Kate Middleton will see the other side of royal duties later, joining William and Harry signing a condolence book for NZ quake victims.

Ahhh thank you for the quotes, that's a very nice gesture of the boys and Catherine. Charles signed it yesterday I think as well.

You're welcome.

I just saw the video of Charles signing the book and meeting with staff. I definitely agree that it's a very a nice gesture.

Yes and this only Kate's second official royal engagement (maybe 3rd) so she is still new and exciting- plp will probably always love them but I just mean right now it's a feeling of oh new blood and how exciting romantic .....so of course they're excited maybe a bit more for her then him but it will settle back to equals I am sure... Or even if she remains more popular I think William can handle it!
