Kate hits the town with her family to celebrate her birthday - but Wills misses out | the Daily Mail

Kate hits the town with her family to celebrate her birthday - but Wills misses out

Prince William, like his brother Harry, is known to love a good party but he was nowhere in sight for his own girlfriend's birthday bash.
William was noticeably absent from Kate Middleton's 26th birthday celebrations on Wednesday but the woman many tip to become his bride did not let his no-show hold her back.

Kate managed to fit in a party at her plush Chelsea flat with family and friends and then headed out for dinner before moving on to a club, where she stayed well into the small hours.

William's wedding will probably be at Westminster or St Pauls, although I've seen Canterbury Cathedral and it looks really large so that may be a possibility.

I think that you're quite wrong here, Roslyn. William is The Heir Apparent, and there will be just as much fanfare and celebration, I'm sure. His grandmother, for one, wouldn't have it otherwise; and quite rightly, too.

I'm sure there will be all the plenty of formal fanfare and celebration, but I don't think the event will capture the heart and minds of the public the same way. I doubt there'll be as much public interest, largely because there's no fairytale princess factor. As well as that, I don't think it will be promoted the same way for the public. The world has changed so much since 1981, particularly since 11.9.01. All those crowds and street parties would be a terrorist's dream and security service's nightmare.

I could well be wrong though, and of course time will tell.

I interpreted Roslyn's comment as meaning that the difference will be in the public reaction, not so much in the style of the royal wedding as effected by the Lord Chamberlain's office or whatever.

It's an interesting thought, I must say. The "Di effect" was quite unique in 1981, the young "Shy Di" mania. I have a hard time imagining a similar public response to Kate, 26,27 years old, obviously no virgin. I can't say I know what the public reaction will be but Roslyn does make an interesting point there.

I can't see the wedding being as big of deal...I think Kate will become more public as far as interviews and stuff like that. But yeah...it won't have the big fairytale aspect especially since so much has been exposed about the royals that the luster of that fantasy has been lost.

Diana came in with the biggest bang ever but by the time she exited, the damage was done...

Why is it obvious?

Because they lived together at University, probably at Clarence House, multiple romantic holidays together... the odds of her being a virgin are nil.

And, in the long run, it doesn't matter. Why it mattered 27 years ago is beyond me, but it did.

I don't think William's wedding will reach the same heights of (I'll get flogged for this) hysteria his Mother's wedding did, but it will be a very public, very royal and very much publized event. Zembla is right - there will be no fairytale overtone, no fantasy here. Too much as changed and died over the past 27 years.

I agree, that I don't see the same media frenzy when it comes to William and Kate that Charles and more so Diana caused at the time. If only because William and Kate's relationship has been in the public eye for so long and is much more "real" than Charles and Diana's ever was, IMO. It's hardly possible to sell it as a fairy-tale when they've been a couple for so long and had their problems and difficulties splashed all over the papers. However that's also a reason why I think their marriage would be much more likely to last than any engagement based on a "love at first sight" infatuation. Since they probably know each other inside out by now and made it through tough times together, they stand a chance to lead a royal marriage successfully. Of course there's no guarantee.

We probably will see the same media frenzy, just look at the performance last year on her birthday and of course the speculation. The media will whip the gullible public into a frenzy, it sells papers!

Well I sure Kate is a lovely person, but I still do not think her Princess (and heaven help us Queen) material. She is now age 26, doesn't work, spends almost every night in various bars and shops and gets her hair and nails done. She has never expressed any interest in Charity work, unless it was that """""boat race""""" and that was only to promote herself in the media with lots of pictures. Now look at the Queen and Princess Anne (just to name these two) they """"""work"""""".

HM didn't 'work', if she had not become Queen, she wouldn't have gone out to earn her living. Many girls and women do not have to seek any employment. Do you have any links to show she spends 'almost every night in various bars', do you have any links to show that she spends her time in bars even twice a week? Why wouldn't she get her nails and hair done, millions of women get their hair and nails done every week.

If and when Kate becomes the next Princess of Wales (or Duchess of Whatever) her life will never be her own again. Her every move will be observed and commented upon as being representative of the Crown and paid for by the taxpayer. She will patron more charities than she will know what to do with. Until then, her lifestyle is between her and her parents accountants. She is not the first (and certainly will not be the last) upper class young lady whose daily life is dictated by the next social engagement and her young man's schedule. I also agree that, sad though it may be, the wedding of William and Kate, while sure to be grand, will not be the fairy tale occasion of Charles and Diana. Royal marriages are no longer assumed to last forever.

I was listening to a programme in the car the other day and the woman was saying that the divorce rate for mere mortals is approaching 2 out of every 3 marriages. That is truly a terrible thought and I hope our royals can buck the trend.

That is indeed a sad statistic and I hope that whomever William and Harry choose, they find true happiness with them.

If Kate and William do marry, they will need a lot of inner fortitude to deal with the intrusion of the press into their lives. I would hope that when William does marry that he has a solid foundation with his partner first. I think that there is a serious possibility that Kate won't want the job as wife to the future King and will refuse a possible marriage offer. They do seem to compliment each other nicely, but I don't know that she will decide to take on William and all that comes with him. I think she can, but the question is, will she think this is best for her?
