It's a dilemma for sure, wanting to be sensitive to the overblown media exposure William and Catherine have to continually experience, and wanting to satisfy my personal curiosity to see them being warmer towards one another in public than we usually get to see.
I know what you mean a part of me doesn't want to see things like this happening to William and Kate, and I'm glad the camera was returned but some part of me is going jeez why couldnt they have just leaked 2 or 3 pictures before giving it back ETA: obviously it would have led to legal problems but you get my point.

It would have been illegal to publish them anyway, so don't give the Sun too much credit. The man obtained them illegally so to publish photos from an illegal source, my guess is an illegal act.

Also to steal something as personal as the flash disk out of her camera, my guess is he was a friend or acquaintance of Pippa.

Seems like legitimate news... the camera robbery story has now been reported at the Telegraph, BBC and DM, along with other foreign news sites.

Although it certainly would have provided guilty pleasure to have seen one or two pictures in question, I'm glad it looks like the pictures will remain what they should be -- private.

Comparing Kate Middleton to the BBC. I find the last line hilarious.

Hee! I don't really see the point of that article but it was a little funny. Definately Kate's damned if she does and damned if she doesn't. If I was Kate's dad and William turned around one day and said: "well I'm not marrying you" I'd kill him for dragging her through all of this.

No kidding! Michael Middleton always looks slightly PO'ed in paparazzi pictures anyway (the ones taken while the whole family waits at an airline counter are a great example). I'd look out if I were William if this whole thing went bust!

(One more reason that it's not going to, though, IMO. William seems as committed to Kate's family as he is to Kate herself!)

If The Sun were to keep the memory card then they could be accused of handling stolen goods, which is a criminal offence.

... and if they published any of the photos they would be breaching copyright, leaving them open to further legal action.

Kathryn Flett would do well to remember that The Queen is not going to be Kate's mother-in-law if she marries William. That would have been Diana. Also, The Observer might want to think about the legal liability they may incur from inferring that Kate is being "funded by the taxpayer". There could be some real flak from making this assumption, given the implications of such a statement.

That's a good point, kimebear. Lots of media reports seem to be trying to insinuate lately that Kate's rolling around in piles of public money. Correct me if I'm wrong, but Prince William isn't even funded by taxpayer funds, is he? I thought the whole Wales family was making do quite nicely with the income from the Duchy of Cornwall -- not to mention the good chunk of interest that William's getting every year now on the inheritance from Diana.

The German magazine "Spiegel" reported the same story today, too:
Prinz William und Kate Middleton: Mann nach Diebstahl privater Fotos festgenommen - Panorama - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten

Well done, Sun, to refuse this temptation.

Yes, exactly. The only way that Kate could possibly benefit from public money is if she had police protection.

But Girls, you are forgetting, most of these articles could not exist if they had to stick to the facts!

Ha! So right -- whatever was I thinking? Articles written that included only verified facts would be about as long as this post!

Revealed: Kate Middleton works nine to five for her parents in a mundane office job | Mail Online

Quote:
Kate Middleton is not workshy but busy nine to five working for her parents in a mundane office job, it was revealed today.
Critics dubbed Prince William's probable future wife 'Waity Katy', and claimed she spent her time shopping and socialising while she waited for William, 26, to propose.
But Ms Middleton, also 26, has been 'compiling and editing catalogues' for her parents' mail order party accessory company five days a week from the family home in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
The Queen was said to disapprove of her apparently lazy lifestyle, wanting her to take up charity work.
But Ms Middleton has told friends such reports are 'utter nonsense', according to Hello! magazine.
A close friend said: 'She is a young woman who wants to keep active and that is why she is annoyed at the headlines saying she doesn't work.
'She is actually working full-time, is on the payroll and plans to continue doing the job.'

Kate's friends at Hello! try to do some positive spin and put her on the front page.

Friend reveals Kate's nine to five role exclusively to HELLO!

She can't win anyway, even if it's true it sounds like an easy solution to escape the waity katie image. It is indeed revealing that a 26 year old history of art graduate does editing catalogues for the mail-order company of her parents - but unfortunately not in the sense of Hello!'s intentions. It's more or less a reaction to the critics of the last weeks or months or years but not very convincing. She remains Waity Katie, at least doing something until William pops the question but only enforced by the public opinion that doesn't approve of her lifestyle.

I don't understand what can possibly be wrong with Kate working in her family business. She's safe from the paparazzi there and earns her money. It's good, honest work. What's the real difference between what Kate's doing and the son or daughter of wealthy land-owner learning to manage the estate? Oh, I get it...Kate's work is too "middle class" and reeks of "trade."

Anyhow, I'm glad Hello published this article to counter the endless reports of her jobless status. Perhaps it was timed as PR to improve her image, but one cannot discount its credibility. Indeed, Kate has spent most of her time in Berkshire in the past few months... she has been snapped at the Party Pieces Headquarters. I, for a fact, always suspected she did some kind of work for the family, be it full time, part time or seasonal. Why the media never picked up on this is beyond me. Perhaps it's because it's more fun to mock people than to praise them... especially when they're in the public eye.

I knew that the moment something about Kate having a job turned up those who constantly call on her to get one won't believe it and find fault with it. Since when is working in a family business not a real job? I guess nothing will ever do when it comes to Kate.
