In case anyone has Itunes and is interested in subscribing to it - I don't know how good it is yet.
That's Marilyn Braun's podcast. She also has a blog. I think it's more a general British royals focus with occasional features on William and Harry.

So what kind of birthday celebration was in the cards for a prince who has everything? A weekend away at a country house with girlfriend Kate Middleton and some pals and a trip to the seaside

You'd think they'd have been able to come up with a more original name.

Quite they used to have another name for themselves?? I suppose it's quite cute that they have to use pretend names

They vacationed in the Seychelles in August '07 under the names "Martin and Rosemary Middleton."

I am afraid I don´t find it that cute. They could make the pretence of having two separate rooms and go under their own names but even better, if they must go on holiday and sleep together they could get married and go legally.
They are both single but Prince William is not just any young man, he is expected to marry and if she is an unequal match and unacceptable to the BRF then he should let her go before she wastes all her young life on him.

I don't think it's illegal to go on holiday together before you're married. I don't understand the "go legally" part of your post.

We've all talked about the different aspects of their pre-marriage relationship here before, and I think it all boils down to one thing: we can all make assumptions about what they do together in private, but not a single one of us knows for sure what's going on. As long as they're committed and happy, I don't think that part is any of our business.

Come on they lived together at St Andrews. It is long past the time of a women having to be untouched to become a royal bride...IMO the subject is moot....

Looking at Wisteria's location, I can see where she is coming from

I hope they do get married soon, not because I find going on holidays together without being married inappropriate, but simply because I want to see a big royal wedding.

Amen to that! I'm so ready for fireworks, orchestras, and the glass coach.

So can I, if they do not marry for any reason, she will be seen as shoddy goods by many society parents.

I don't somehow think that they have the normal hotel room where there is really only one room and a bathroom but more a suite which could even have two bedrooms.

Frankly I don't care one iota if they live together for the next 30 years - so long as they wait at least 10 months after the wedding before having the first child to ensure that it was conceived after the wedding (I know that is an old fashioned idea but it is my view of things).

I also don't care about a wedding unless they are ready to commit to the full royal glare of their lives being covered all over the press and discussed in all these sorts of fora. Once they are married they will really struggle to have any true privacy so I am happy to have them do it now.

IMO this is a real non-issue in the minds of most people in the UK. Their sleeping arrangements are for them to decide upon and not us, the public.

I am really not sure what "legally" you are referring to here

I assumed that she meant that they were 'legally' Mr and Mrs Smith rather than Mr Mountbatten-Windsor and Ms Middleton (assuming that William would use the surname decided by the Queen for her male-line grandchildren in need of a surname).

That was it.
Thank you Ella Kay. I do hope something happens soon with Kate and William. Unlikely but I can still hope.

Not sure how accurate it is, but supposedly, William's nickname for Kate was "babykins" and Kate's for William was "Big Willie".

Here's an article about it;

Well, for all we know she could get pregnant after any possible marriage, and the child could be born early. So unless she is clearly pregnant when and if she gets married, we'll never know.
