According to the Sunday People, William is being pressured into proposing to Kate, as he is currently leaving her in limbo because she can't start a career or anything.

The article says all the time "its unfair with kate" about william leaving her waiting for a propouse. Now a couple can only be happy if they are married? i don't think so... Kate can't live always waiting for William, he has the right
to do what he wants for his life, marrying or not its HIS problem.
Kate seems a little lazy for me, i mean... she wants to marry and doesn't do anything else? doesn't have a job? she's just waiting and waiting, to be a princess and to have all in her hands? kate dear, go live your life!
you can't wait to live your own life forever...

I think sometimes is unfair with william, i mean... he can't date? he has to marry? why does he have to do all people say for him to do? marrying is a very important decision for someone's life. Its not a joke or a play, its about love and respect. He's a prince, ok right. So, now just because he's a prince
he needs to marry that young?
the only person in a bad situation in this case, is WILLIAM.

It could well be that Kate has been advised not to get a job, because of the complications it might cause. It must be very difficult to try to live a 'normal' live, when you have the media and his fans just waiting for you to make a slip.

i would agree with karla64 what talking about it

but William told press about when he going get married and he told press wait till 28 or 30 years old unlike his dad the Prince of Wales getting married to his mother the Princess Diana since 1981 for 25 years ago.

but im sure William will getting propose to Kate no matter for him when he done with army training unlike his mother who get married too early at ages 20 years old but he wanted wait till he reach become 25 or more ages.

Kate sure doesn't look like she has a problem with the situation! If she does I'm sure she and William will work it out their own way. They seem to be forging a new path and not necessarily following what the "aides" think. I think the Queen and Prince Phillip have learned from their experiences and that they will never pressure William.

I´m a year older than Kate an Will´s and in a serious relationship and I dont feel ready for marriage yet. Both my bf and I are in the middle of things, he is in his master and I ´m working. I know my mum and grandmother´s were already married and with several kids at my age but I dont feel ready for it yet. I bet many women my age will simpathize with me.

I think is stupid what the article says about Kate climbing the professional ladder to end up consort of Will´s.She should look into Letizia´s and Mary´s mirror and do somethin for her, they didnt quit their jobs just because the were girlfriends of crown prince.

I like Kate, I think she is perfect for Wills, you can see it in their eyes, and he would be very stupid if he let it pass, but is sad to see a bright girl sitting, waiting for, literaly prince charmin, to give the ring, if she doenst feel like work, fine, but she could study a master or be more serious about her job at her family´s company.

I dunno I think is up to her, and only they know what REALLY happens in their relationship and when they tie the knot, but I´d like to see
her more active.

I doubt anyone had explicitly told her to not get a job. I mean she is a supposedly an independent adult correct?

She is a human being, she is bound to make a mistake once in a while. Don't see what that has to do with his fans?

Do you not let a child learn how to walk because you fear he/she might fall?

Well, we will never know whether she has or has not been told not to get a job!
The post says 'when you have the media and his fans just waiting for you to make a slip', I am sorry that you are having trouble understanding it.
Surely you would stop a child walking off the edge of a cliff, wouldn't you?

Getting a job can not be used with the analogy of a near death experience. Perhaps only for those who are lazy and complacent.

You are making it sound like getting a job and actually learning something might kill her and that is silly (and funny!).

Perhaps the 'higher powers' should dress her in bubble wrap and drive her around in a tank?

This was your post wasn't it?
"Do you not let a child learn how to walk because you fear he/she might fall".

My reply, which you don't understand was this:-
"Surely you would stop a child walking off the edge of a cliff, wouldn't you"?

As I have already said, I'm sorry that you have trouble reading and understanding my posts but as I havn't resorted to personal insults, it would be reasonable if you afforded me the same courtesy, I may be complacent but I am certainly not lazy. I even turned the shower on myself this morning but, I did chip a nail!

As none of us knows what Kate does with her life, it might be a little presumptuous to judge her, after all what you do with your life, or what I do in mine, might not be how others would choose to live, but I would hope before being too judgemental we would have all the facts.

First off, just because your a royal's girlfriend you can't have a boyfriend? This is what I understood from that article...correct me if I'm wrong!
Now, if Kate really wanted to, she could get a job (any job to boot!) and climb the professional ladder. And I totally agree that she should look at the examples set by Letizia and Mary and even closer to home, Sophie Countess of Wessex! They set the example that you can have a serious relationship with a royal and still have a career. If she has not gotten a job it's becuase she does not want to...and I'm not trying to throw any dirt on this girl, but I really think it sucks that the blame for her lack of motiviation to get a decent job should fall on William only. But just my opinion.

I agree with you first statement but what we have to realise is that the media are not as intrusive in the european countries.

Do we know for certain that she has not got her own internet business up and running, after all, a well run business would not require 100% of her attention 100% of the time.
Do we know for certain that she is not 'earning her keep' by helping her parents out?
As I said weeks ago, nobody could employ her, the media being what they are, the disruption to the business and the duty of care to the other members of staff, constantly being harassed to give a little 'snippet' of information.
Diana was hounded out of her job as a nursery assistant, do you think anyone has learned that lesson?

Please remember that this thread covers Prince William's current events.

Discussion of Miss Middleton's working options and lack of them is well outside its borders.


Thank you for co-operation

i just want william to be allowed to be happy and live his OWN life (it will not always be that way)
i sincerely hope "the firm" is not putting any pressure on them, we've already seen that play and the last act was tragic! those who don't learn from past mistakes are doomed to repeat them. (forget who said that, but they were smart :) He seems to be a level headed responsible man, leave him alone and let him make his own decisions, after all he has to live with them.
personally they need to track down these "royal aides" and show them the door they are not helping the situation because i doubt they know anymore of their personal relationship than we do and speculation and manipulation puts more pressure on william and I DON"T LIKE IT, sorry but i love this kid.

Very well said, it's what we all want for our own children, why should William be expected to have anything less.
