I thought Charles' marriage to Diana was very rushed (as well as ill-advised) but I don't understand the argument that William and Kate are young and they shouldn't rush into marriage, either. I'm in my early twenties, and most people my age that I know are engaged or married. Not that I mean to use my experience as a representative sample, but 26 is in no way too young to get married, if you ask me. William and Kate have been dating for at least four years, right? (Correct me if I'm wrong). I think the royals erred on the side of too fast with Charles and Diana's marriage, but now I think they're erring on the side of too much caution. I'm sure the tabloids would find something nasty to say about Kate and William eventually anyway, but it's easy to call a couple indecisive if they've been dating for several years and haven't shown any sign of an engagement.

It's interesting that the tabloids are acting sick of Kate before there's even been an engagement; most royal brides are at least married before the fall to earth. I wonder whether the media will change their stance before the (presumably eventual) wedding, or if they'll just drum up negative publicity and rumours of doom in the run-up to the wedding.

I doubt William rekindled his relationship with Kate after seeing pics of her in papers. Does he not read the papers, because he doesn't trust them?

Also, I just want to give my thoughts and say that I think Kate is overrated. She's been built up by the press so much, I think its overdone. No one knows what's she like. She could be very sweet, very phony, very mean or very airheaded. No one knows! And these media people talk about her as if they're in her inner circle. Its ridiculous.

I totally feel the same way. I know absolutely nothing about Kate. But the papers seem to drag her into almost ever royal story conceivable, complete with insinuations of an impending break-up or engagement. That's why I wish William would hurry up and actually get engaged to her...at least then there'd be something substantive for the media to report on (and the public to judge!)

I'd be willing to bet they are all fairly obsessed with what is printed about them and people they know on a daily basis. If not then I'm sure someone at least makes them aware...

Thank you for this link, zembla. It's not one that I would have found for myself. This journalist had good words for Kate after having seen her at a function during the "break-up" days. I can believe her opinion that it was the courtiers who perhaps leaked the negative comments about Kate to the media during that time. They seem to have the reputation of being "more royal than the Royals."

There's a lot of video footage of Kate I've never seen in this youtube video, although the overall message seems to be tongue-and-cheek sarcastic:

Yeah, I've seen that video, and worse. There's a lot of people out there who are obsessively against Kate Middleton.

Poor Kate, aren't people cruel? I know she asks for it sometimes, but its true, she isn't receiving very good press

Those last few shots of her make her look EVIL. Which, I guess, was the point of this video.

KATIE NICHOLL: The brunch bunch join Charles for 60th birthday party #3 | Mail Online

Quote:
Prince William and Kate will join in the fun:

They haven’t been seen in public together for nine weeks but I am assured that Kate Middleton will be by Prince William’s side at Charles’s Highgrove party.
‘There was a bit of a wobble, and they didn’t see each other before William went on his trip to South Africa with his brother,’ I’m told.
‘There was a minor fallout after Kate was pictured flat on her back at her roller disco charity event but they’ve smoothed things over and Kate is planning to go to the party.’

Katie Nicholl's still beating the Kate-at-the-roller-derby drum? Well, I suppose when there's no "new" news, print old news.

Well you can´t blame the Daily Mail, this is another holiday isn´t it? What did they say on Youtube, 22 holidays in 18 months? I wonder if that is enough for her. Perhaps they meant 22 new outfits.

I guess if they spent a few days at Highgrove, it would not be counted by Kate's detractors as a holiday, but I guess this is the "cost" of dating somebody whose family has a fair few homes.

Its amazing as you start to play with the definition of "holiday" what results can be arrived at!

My definition of holiday is simply "not working". I suppose I am defeating myself, if she does nothing then the holidays are not holidays so what are they to be called?
