Kate and Will are very similar. As BeatrixFan said, he sees them with long faces and grey suits. I think it could work both ways. It could either work for them or against them. Couples need to be "in sync" and understand what the other is going through. Having sort of the same personality helps with that. On the other hand, there is the expression "opposites attract" for a reason. I think William has stayed with Kate maybe longer than he normally would have because of all the positive attention on their relationship. Supposedly everyone in the royal family is "delighted" with Kate and accepts her. On them marrying, I have to say I don't really have a set opinion on it. I'm sure she will have the royal makeover if they get engaged and maybe she'll crack a smile or two and maybe even a wave. But I can't say about why she would make a really bad/good Queen to me because she won't be my Queen but a Queen. So my opinion is really kind of a moot point, but I'll still express it.

It's simply too early to tell what will happen, if anything. William has said publicly he is too young to get married and that's all we know at this point.

Some posters have mentioned that WE don't know what she does with her time, well the press is said to 'Follow her everywhere'. They know when she goes sking, shopping for groceries, shopping at Christmas, when she gets on a bus, when she goes out drinking, even when she goes to the dentist, but not One Word about when she helps serve food to the homeless at a shelter, or preparing sack lunches at a local church, NOTHING. .
I am just one of the posters that pointed out that we don't know what she does with her time and no, the press is not there 24/7. Do you think the times she has been photographed are the only times she has been out?
She may not pack lunches(?), but, do we know that she doesn't work for her parents and donate half her salary to charity?
Nobody has been able to explain why they feel she should do charity work. Give the girl a break, she probably wants to live her own life, how would any of us feel if one or two people told us how to live? We would rightly, tell them to get lost!

I can't believe what I'm reading!

I know this is a public forum for civil debates and voicing opinions but I can not believe how many people on this board think they know what's best for Prince William. None of us know him, we've never had a conversation with him or Kate so how can any of us possibly rate their maturity level?!

Saying Will and Kate would be better off waiting until they're older to be married is insane. How do you explain the high divorce rate when taking into consideration that the average age of marriage is 28 for men and 26 for women (from a Time magazine article). Getting married young is not for everyone but being older doesn't ensure anything.

To be prefectly honest, I'm not a big fan of Kate but when it's right, it's right...period. And the only two people that know that are William and Kate.

A lot of people think its right and this love will last. Its common sense that if William married now it would be bad. They would rarely see each other and while William is playing soldier, Kate will have to learn to be a lonely princess working all the time. They need more life experience and maturity for this royal couple to make it.

It can, as you say be quite lonely for any soldiers wife, although I don't think William will even be an ordinary officer. He hasn't even finished his Sandhurst traing, then there will be his chosen regiment training.
If They married, Kate would probably be unable to work, due to the pressures placed on her employer and workmates.
Time spent together could be more important than age.

William has told us that he is not ready for marriage now. I think William does not want a long distance marriage like Andrew and Fergie. I truly believe Andrew and Fergie would be married now if they had more time together during their marriage. Fergie was not married to the heir to the throne and look at the press she got can you imagine the press William's wife is going to get? They need to be together during that time of engagement and marriage.:)

WOW, what if they DONT get married? The public is paying for someone who isn't even a royal member yet? That's sad.

I agree with you.
Officer Cadet Wales AKA HRH Prince William is doing well at Sandhurst and as far as I know Harry is as well.

Nice story but, knowing the NotW, very little truth in the whole article.
If it is well known that she has her own guards and security system. I wonder why no one else has picked up on it?

Perhaps they have a sign.

If you read this article, it says that Guy was handed what he could have thought was an ordinary ciggy and had taken a puff before he realised, not only that he was being photographed but, that it was pot.
The papers should hang their heads in shame.
