I still don't get why his job interferes with his life. Is ANYONE in the RAF married or in a relationship???

I doubt the Palace or Courtiers are looking at her on the floor in shorts saying what wonderful future Monarch image she is presenting. I think some parts of the evening concerning her decsion on her attire to her presentation was a mistake.
It is obvious no PR people from the Palace helped her with this.
I agree certain photos from the event were clearly put out there to send a specific image. Like the comical one of her sprawled out on the floor at The Sun.

But the tabs have been saying she needs to do charity work if she won't work, and here she is doing it but not in the most traditional sense. It seems as though she might was well live whatever life she wants at this point because she will always do wrong and never be right for their Prince.

The stripes are like the kind that were on athletic shorts at the time. Yes, she has a lovely figure. I think that she's a very pretty, fit young lady.

Panties? That term is usually reserved for ladies' underwear that you call "knickers" over there. I think that Catherine's wearing what could be called "hot pants" or "short shorts." I can only imagine the uproar if Kate wore what we'd call "panties" in public!

Paparazzi persecution, day in and day out. IOW being stalked. The museum or gallery being harassed with phone calls from reporters and gossip columnists. Staff dealing with people who aren't as interested in the art as they are in catching a glimpse of Kate.

Let's not go down the road of whether Kate should get a job, what her motivations are, whether she'll be a suitable consort for William, whether they'll end up getting married, what sort of job she should get, and the rest of that weary battle. Not here, at any rate. This is a current-events thread, not a let's-have-a-fight-about-Kate's-future thread. There are other threads for more general discussions about William and Kate.

Party Pieces Updates

Thanks to dagsi's post in another blog, we get Party Pieces updates!

-----------------
PARTY PIECES UPDATES

A quick visit to http://www.partypieces.co.uk would show you a some signs of Kate involvement.

1. Newly-launched Cherrypicked Collection. Click on the logo, and voila, at the bottom of the Cherrypicked page, we get a small pic of Kate with her mum. The file name, vicky_mum_kate_WEB.jpg, indicates that indeed, she's called "Kate" in her family.

2. The Personalised Gifts section. Probably means nothing, but note the names Kate, James, Harry and William (a clock!).

3. The Gift Experience section. Clearly linked to Virgin Experience Days -- probably in collaboration with Holly Branson.

4. Starlight Charity. Party Pieces has joined forces with Starlight Children Foundation for terminally ill kids. Take note that this is also the charity associated with this year's Boodles Boxing Ball.
-----------

Fantastic work, Kate! These are very distinct signs of Kate's involvement in the family business, so hopefully claims that she does nothing with her time will be laid to rest. The products look cute, too. If I lived in the UK, I'd probably try a thing or two... even if I don't have kids

I am surprised the Daily Mail has not come up with a story about the Middletons trying to cash in on Kate's royal connections, as a result of her picture appearing on the website! Lets give it a few weeks - I am sure its on its way!

Hip hip hooray, now we know that Miss Middleton is known as Kate and the name Catherine can be left where it belongs, at the Baptismal font. Asking to be called this gives me the idea she is already trying out Queen Catherine for size.

I'm sure she'll be Catherine Elizabeth at the wedding if they marry, just as he'll be William Arthur Philip Louis.

I've always sort of wondered if that "Call me Catherine!" story was a plant. I'm sure there are tons of people in the aristocratic circles close to the royal family who would love to see Kate discarded, and I wouldn't put it past one of them to start rumors like this one in the press. "Oh, we all call her Catherine, she asks us to."

I had the same thought Ella Kay, it made her seem a bit "too big for her boots".

I hope that Starlight gets a lot of donations from Party Pieces' involvement!

Why on earth would they put a story out like that? There are much better ways, IF they felt that way inclined! Until I see a reliable statement to the contrary, I shall continue to call her by her given name, not a nickname she is now reputed to use with her family. My siblings are allowed to call me by a shortened version of my name, but heaven help anyone else!

At least they can't claim Kate doesn't work.

Sounds like she's been involved in Party Pieces since early this year then. I really like the idea of the gift bags for children in the hospital over Christmas!

So, Menarue, I take it that you are not too fond of the idea of a Queen Catherine?

I think the whole name thing is ridiculous, if she marries William, the Queen is not going to allow her to be Princess Kate, whatever she was called before. Until then, Kate is fine.

But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

I was so disappointed when I read the family call her Kate, it sounds so ... downmarket to me. If she marries William, lets hope that she is called Princess Catherine.

Wonderful that the Middletons have been able to show the story about call me Catherine was a total fabrication, I wonder which rag it started in?

It does sound like a lovely thing for Party Pieces to do ... those children will be over the moon when they get all that bright party gear to help celebrate Christmas!

As far as the name goes, I'm merely speculating that I hope Kate wouldn't go swanning about, telling people to call her Catherine when they've previously not done so. I could just more easily believe that someone else tossed that bit to the press. I think Kate's quite a nice name, and Catherine, too, and if she does become Princess William, I'm sure that we'll see both used at times.
