He wasn't on duty, he was there as a brother.

Nice that the article mentioned that Chelsy seemed to be studying.

Re the article in the D...y Mail about Catherine and a job:

if she really did these pics that were shown on the homepage of Party Pieces, then she is quite good at what she does - the pics transport the right feeling for the products her parents are selling.

As for the queen wanting her to have a proper job: come on! The queen has seen her cousin and her brother-in-law making a career of photography and I seriously doubt that she doesn't consider this to be a worthwhile artistically profession. If Catherine really did these pics, then she knows quite a bit about the topic and should be taken seriously, even if she does it so far (in the public's knowledge) for her own family. That doesn't mean that Party Pieces does not have the same professional needs as their competitors!

I wonder if these allegations that Queen Elizabeth really pushes the idea to Kate that work is a necessity. I think as being inclined to the throne, along the way, she has had to deal with coming to expectations granted as the heir apparent. I think by now her understanding is much more well regarded and maybe expectations shouldn't be imposed. Yes she is filling big shoes, if I may, but by now she should know what exactly she would want to do in the meantime. She has a wealth of resources for knowledge and whatever she does will probably be good. Personally I hope she doesn't grow dull from over work. I'd try to stay healthy and youthful and do only what doesn't burden someone I guess.

Good points Jo and I would add that working for parents is normally harder than working for an ordinary company. Why does it matter to the Mail where she works

I do find it hard to believe that anyone would take the Daily Mail's word for it that HM has spoken out about this!

Can anyone show me an article that proves HM has ever let her thoughts or opinions be known on such trivia? Can any of us see HM having an in depth conversation with anyone other than 100% trusted staff, can we really believe that she had a casual chat with a servant about Catherine or is this yet another attempt by the Daily Mail to blacken Catherines' name and character?

IF a servant has repeated confidential information, which I doubt, let us hope that he/she is hunted out and dismissed.

I agree Skydragon the Queen has never as far as I know has let her opinions when it comes to her family be known to the public.

I think personally that the DM is having a dig at Kate for being seen to be doing nothing in her life, because a lot of the public do see her as doing nothing.

I wish the DM would pick a story and stick to it.

At this point I'm thinking it would be impossible for William to find anyone to marry who didn't attract negative press without keeping her concealed in the Fortress of Solitude. The press seems to be getting more and more vicious about all of its victims as time goes by.

The Queen didn't say anything but had Katie Nicholls written that she thinks Kate should get a job noone would have given a damn. Such an article doesn't sell papers.
If Kate should indeed marry into the Royal Family it will be her life after the wedding that will count. If she manages 500 engagements per year noone will give a damn anymore about her supposed lack of work ethic before the marriage. And if she doesn't live up to the example set by HM and Princess Anne, she'll never become Queen anyways since the British monarchy will probably have been abolished by then.

on the contrary, photography is an extremely worthwhile profession no matter how you look at it. i've worked in the photography industry for years and while it's tough going free lance, if you can establish yourself there's money to be made. as for catherine's talent, whoever took the pics of the party pieces isn't necessarily able to photograph people or nature or anything else as well as they photograph product. but i've wondered lately, even she did want a career as a photographer, why would she quit her job at jigsaw? the wise thing to do would be to stay with a steady job until you're established and making a living at it.

I hope that Catherine is strong-willed enough not to fall for it, but OTOH I would be happy if she used her Royal connections to get precious time in learning from other photographers.

And if she marries William, I have no doubt there are numerous "career chances" on working with the Royal Collections for a HRH who is Master of History of Art...

This nonsense in the DM that the Queen is insisting on Kate getting a job as a pre-requisite to marrying William is just ridiculous. She would certainly say no such thing. If they marry, it will only be in the next few years. Kate's only job then will be as a working royal. If they have come to an understanding, she doesn't need a career. If they have not by now, then she should do it for herself, not for William nor the Queen.

I would like to see them marry, but I have no high opinion of Williams regard for her since I saw the video of them at the ceremony when he received his wings.

i think probably the Daily Mail are voicing the opinion of some British people who would like to see Kate settled into a job (i dont call working for your parenst very hard) her job at Jigsaw was in a a way ideal as she was seen to be working and earning money and during that period there was less criticism of her so it was a bad move to give that job up

A 4 page spread on William in Hello this week and his entering the Navy.

Also really interesting article 12 questions on the possible engagement/marriage. Suggested dates linked into family engagments in June/July of 2009/2010. Church suggestions/Martial home/What happens to kate once engaged. Interesting take not the normal boring ooo they are getting engaged.
