All is quite since Kate was with the royal family. Does anyone know what Kate and Wills are up to?

Yeah she does have a certain artisto quality when she's all dressed up...or down like when she was rowing in diamond earrings and hair done.

I think is to soon to speculate if theres going to be a wedding, between Prince William and Kate. Remember, don't pressure a Gemini, look what happen in 2006. Everyone thought there was an engagement and nothing happened. My God they even made plates of them. I think it is best they take things slow before anyone regrets anything, it is best to make a good decision than a wrong one.

I agree!
I'll settle for my Prince Charming also as long as I didn't have to work outside of the home.

I could only live of another person money if I had a reason,such as raising children.Besides Kate's dad has lots of money and that job at Jizsaw sounds pretty lame anyways.

Oooh. You'll be waiting a long time. Men want their women to work in some capacity. If they don't they get resentful. My friends who all are independent get more dates than the ones who want to be "taken care of". (Which is code to a man for "Needy.")

That is not necessarily true. I have some very wealthy friends and colleagues who are quite happy to have their wives at home not working. Children or not.

Those women take care of their men in other ways.

I just graduated at a university with a bachelors of history. Even with a rich boyfriend or Prince I would still show that I'm going to use my degree and intelligence, to work just for no one, but for all women who can change the world, at least. My point is, looking back past times, women has worked very hard to prove an equality of getting education and having a job, instead of just becoming a mother or a housewife. I believe that Kate did just one goal of getting a degree, great. But, become a role model to other independent women, who does not need a man to support them, by getting a descent job; even if your rich or not. Now our generation has changed, especially now that women are now becoming more dominate. Look at the Queen of England and Senator Clinton.

Has anyone ever seen pics taken by Catherine Middleton? For I doubt she will become a photoreporter (or paparazza) for a tabloid...

I was not aware that she often moved in the circles of arts people where careers of photographers are being formed. But maybe she really has talent and maybe she gets a bit of help from Lord Snowdon or one of the other top photographers surrounding the RF. I mean, if the queen of Denmark can be known as a talented artists with exhibitions of her work, then why should the girlfriend of prince William not do the same?

Depends on her talent. So I would be glad if someone could point me to pictures by Catherine Middleton.

I really find comments such as 'just a mother' rather demeaning to people who have taken on full time the extremely vital role of raising their children.

I have known many women who also set out to have a career and fit the children in around that career. Amazingly when the child arrived they found it difficult to return to work, and in some cases, chose to stay at home to raise their child/ren. They don't see this as being 'just a mother' but as a worthwhile job that should be done with love and pride and shouldn't be derided by others in society. I currently teach with three women who have just had their second child (within the last year) and each is deciding to return to teaching for only two days a week next year in order to spend more time with their children and all three are planning another child in the next year or so and won't be returning to work at all after that until the last child finishes primary school. I wouldn't for a moment suggest that these three ladies are doing anything less than a valuable job for the community.

Maybe Jigsaw found it too ridiculous to have a person on payroll who actually doesn't work - I mean in the way people usually define the world "working" or "having a job".

Before she left Kate spent 95% of her time with clubbing, shopping, going on vacation and after she's back to 100%, not much of a difference for her usual lifestyle anyway.

How do you know that? Do you work at Jigsaw? Did you do the work she was payed for? I wonder why these IMHO unproven assertions turn up again and again, only because the girl didn't work behind a counter at Boot's where anyone could stare at her. I recall several pics of her driving to and from work. What do you imagine she did there? Staring out of the window while the paint on her nails was drying? Come on!

But to be working 3 to 4 days in a week in retail industry is something I can say "cant believe it exist in this industry". Been there as a buyer for 6 years, cant say we do have so much time for ourself... but its fun!!

My point is that this job at Jigsaw was never serious or something like a career as people in this business - wasn't she supposed to be a buyer? - or in most other businesses don't have as many vacation days or go clubbing until early hours at least twice a week. I am repeating myself but I find it most disturbing that a young woman in her age and with her education doesn't have any visible direction in her life = a serious job or career but enjoys a pensioner-like leasure lifestyle as a 25 year old. It is possible to have a career and helps being taken seriously, as proven by other royal girlfriends before, although we still don't know if Kate even is a royal girlfriend or not
