New news from the royal family, I guess Kate is getting comfortable with the royal residence. Here's an article by Sun:

William and Kate have been together for a few years now.She grew up in the country and seems to actually like country pursuits that the RF participate in. I find it impossible to believe she would be able to keep up a pretense quite this long without William realizing it. And I suspect the RF also are making sure they know the real Kate. IMO I think RF want to avoid another "Diana' situation.

good to see them acting like a normal couple, even if some of the pictures look a bit staged.

That's what I think, too. I wouldn't be astonished if the story about them sharing his apartment at Clarence House are true. If they are back in a serious relationship, than it must be in the best interest of Charles and Camilla to see as much as they can of the girl in order to be able to give William their honest and well-founded advice. They surely don't want another "Diana"-situation - not for William who should better not find out that he has married a girl who only pretended to like his occupations but found his real soulmate and for the RF who needs a stable and warm-hearted new princess if the monarchy is to survive into the next century.

As for Catherine stopping these hunting trips after an eventual marriage: it is known that Camilla does not like them either but is always there when the hunters return with a thermos of hot tea and some sandwhiches to help celebrate the hunter's success. Why not? My father loved fly-fishing and while my mother was bored to death by his hobby, she always came visting and brought a lunch basket with her which they both shared and had a good time....

I've been out of the loop for a while, but this could be a good sign for the future for William and Kate. if its true.
WILLIAM AND KATE ARE LIVING TOGETHER

Wednesday December 19,2007
Daily Express

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton are secretly living together at Clarence House, it was reported last night.

The Prince’s 25-year-old girlfriend has been treating the royal home – official residence of Prince Charles and Camilla – as home for two months. Now she has given the keys to her Chelsea flat to her sister Pippa, it was claimed.

Wow! I didn't think that Catherine would practically move into Clarence House. But even though I didn't expect it, I'm not surprised.

Prince William took Catherine to Julie's Restaurant at the Portobello Hotel in the Holland Park area of Notting Hill last week, and the week before that they went ice skating together at Somerset House. I guess William and Catherine have decided to spend more quality time together this holiday season, and their urge for quality time extends into her staying over at Clarence House!

The article says Catherine has handed the keys to her apartment to her sister, that sounds like she does indeed spend a large amount of time at Clarence House. I guess it's easy for her to come and go there at her leisure since she has her own pass.

The Daily Express only quotes the Sun, so it's still just one story and no proof at all. Maybe we should reread the thread (threat?) of last
year pre-christmas, where exactly the same stories were published as a lead-up to Valentine's day. And we all know how this ended...

But - I once read an article about St. James' palace on whose premises Clarence House stands. It claimed there are tunnels connecting BP, CH and St. James' palace along the Mall with Whitehall and the atomic shelters there in case of a threat to Britain and that St. James' not only had amounts of official exits, but that it is connected since ancient times with other buildings in the quarter, so that the Royals and their court could enter and leave the palace premises without being seen by the public. I wonder if this is true or just an urban myth? Who owns the houses in the St. James' area? The duchy of Lancaster or the duke of Westminster?

I am glad to see them happy and together. I wish them both all the best. I think that they (the BRF) have learned alot from the past. I think that sophie's marriage has turned out well, because they gave them time to get to know each other and date a long time. wills and kate seem to be doing the same. thanks for all of the links to the picutes.

Thanks for the pics! Finally we see more of them. First two things that came to my mind:


1. William becomes a lookalike of his uncle Edward
2. I wish Kate would finally get rid of this ugly fur cap - horrible

^ Agree about the fur hat. It's hideous looking. But I guess she wears it because it is warm. It looks warm. But ugh........ It is so ugly it doesn't go with anything. It ruins every outfit!

There must be something else that keeps equally warm. I'd expect some doddery old ladies wearing such fur hats but not a young woman of Kate's age. It looks incredibly frumpy on her.

Hi, Jo! I've heard that claim too about the underground tunnels. I don't know how much of SW1 is owned by the duke of Westminster, but I think he owns the Belgravia area which is part of SW1, right? I would think that the properties of BP, St James Palace and adjoining houses (CH & YH), KP all belong to the duchy of Lancaster, or Crown Estate, but I don't know it.

Well, the Sun story about the claim of PW and KM (loving my acronyms today) was written by Duncan Larcombe. Duncan is a rather aggressive youngish (maybe 30ish) reporter who practically stalks PW. He is the one who cornered PW in Switzerland at the Attica Club, and PW finally agreed to have a drink with him (probably because he was exasperated and thought, what the heck). Duncan also broke the "break up" story. He stalks Princess Beatrice too. I looked him up on facebook and Duncan has for his friend, guess who, none other than sleezy Paolo Luizzo(sp?) that guy who was convicted of manslaughter whom Bea had the hots for.

It sounds as if this Duncan Larcombe is a rather aggressive stalker type, I wonder if that means he is more likely to get the real story. If so, then there is a chance the article is correct about Catherine staying at Clarence House frequently. Has he been correct in the past?

I hope those of you who are ripping on Kate for helping Wills hunt are vegan, because otherwise you're being utter hypocrites.

Maybe she enjoys the hunt and being outdoors, you wouldn't know unless you were actually her friend and really know her for sure.

SO CATTY.

I think the hat looks ok when she is kind of done up, in browns. It is a dressy item, much better with the dressy-casual look than the dressing-down look. Like here (from Hello!). I still wouldn't wear it though, because it's just not my personal style.
