Lets be honest, some people would still cry insult if he was seen to be supporting England in this GAME. That would also be decried as having too much time off, enjoying himself when real fans couldn't get a ticket!

IMO it would be much more significant if William and Kate spent the weekend at Windsor. Since normally the Queen usually spend the weekend there.

And C+C announced their engagement there.

And Charles proposed to Diana there, though the announcement interview was at BP. I wonder if any royal proposals ever happened at Balmoral, just for the sake of wondering....

Yes, Prince Philip to Princess Elizabeth in August 1946.

He could propose to her but if, and its a big if right now, he did they would never announce it before Peter gets married. That is not how things are done with the royal family. The focus would never be taken off the wedding of a grandchild of the Queen, especially for the future heir which would generate a ton of pomp itself. Unless BP really is going to H*** in a handbasket these days.

If he would pop the question tomorrow, nobody outside of the family may even know about it for a while. Of course, it would leak pretty quick, so the announcement would have to be made within a week or two, most likely.

It's IMHO unlikely that Catherine wasn't introduced to the queen when she attended William's parade at Sandhurst as William's invited guest of honour. That would have been very unpolite, so I guess they have already been introduced properly.

Why does one meeting constitute a marriage announcement? I met my Aunt Sarah's friend Esther last week, it doesn't mean she's marrying my budgie does it?

It's nice to see Prince Charles spending some time with Kate. Let's hope that she spends some quality time with the Duchess of Cornwall too. If an engagement announcement is due for 2007, it could be just what William needs to put him on the straight and narrow.

I don't think Kate spending the weekend at Balmoral means thats there will be an engagement soon. Due to their breakup not too long ago, I think it would be a mistake to get engaged already. If they are thinking about it, I think it would be smart to wait another year or so. They're still young so whats the rush! But it is nice to see the Kate is compfortable hanging out with Charles without William present.

Let say they do get engage how will anyone feel the rolw Kate will paly as a Future Queen of England? Kate Middleton is said to be taking her relationship with Prince William very seriously- so much so, that she's already considering herself for the role of Queen... and isn't too comfortable with it! Five-ish years into her relationship with the future monarch, a close friend of the couple has said that Kate has finally woken up to what her relationship with William actually represents. Those of us who have been watching (and criticizing!) Kate since her days at St. Andrew's have said time and time again that she would not make a suitable Queen because of her lack of work ethic. It seems as though Kate may actually agree.
According to the News of the World, a pal of Kate's said, "It's one thing having an on-off relationship with Wills, it's quite another thing becoming Queen."

hmm, well I think that if she agrees with the public perception of her work ethics, then it really is / was time for her to realise what she would have to do if she was a queen. It is after all a lot of work (I just finished watching the show about Windsor Castle where they showed the preparations into the banquet the Queen held for the State visit of one of the Kings and Queens). I'm not doubting the fact that she does love William and probably would say yes if he asked her to marry, but maybe this is why he may have had his doubts of whether she's the right one for him (refering to her aparent "lack of work ethic")? To me he seems to work harder than she does! If they do get married, I imagine, she would have to go into some intensive queen training! I mean he's been preparing his whole life to be a future King, which is vastly different to having lets say ten or fifteen years to prepare, to be as ready as he would be, for the responsibilities.

I strongly suspect this is why, in the past, they always encouraged Princes to marry Princesses or atleast other women who moved in the royal circles - simply put, these women would know what it took to be a Queen for a country.
