Do you think that the Duchess will attend the state opening of parliament ?

I wish she would but I doubt it....I wish Charles and Camilla would go as I don't even recall Charles attending in recent years. Catherine would be really gorgeous at such a formal occasion!

That's an event I have only ever seen HM and Prince Phillip attend. I believe Charles attended with Diana one year.

I doubt that Kate will attend, but we could all be surprised. Isn't that where Diana nodded off?

Had she fallen asleep again, this time at the opening of Parliament? I just remember that famous picture where Diana nodded off at a concert dressed in formal evening wear. She was pregnant at that time, I believe.

It was a charming picture of Diana, and it was probably a concert --- not the opening of Parliament.

It was at the Splendor of the Gonzagas Exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum. Among Diana watchers, the lovely confection she was wearing is sometimes called "the Gonzaga dress."

Charles and Diana went for several years in the early part of their marriage. I'm reminded of the time Diana wore an updo and that's all the papers could talk about the next day!

Well Camilla hasn't attended yet, I can't see Kate attending the ceremony before Camilla. It would seem slightly odd.

Other than the Queen and Prince Philip I dont think other members of the family have attended since the reforms of the House of Lords began.

Thank you - that was such a beautiful gown and the picture of her nodding off just endeared her to me.

I am definitely leaning towards the situation of a) Kate requested to sit there on purpose b) Kate didn't care that there was a window and anyone with a camera can do what they want to do.

You probably will see her in one, but not at the opening of parliament until she is Queen.

I think Kate should be more careful with this kind of photos...she should be at a place that no one could photographer her inside the hair salon ...

I think you've nailed it and whichever exact scenario is correct, I cannot but believe that she has made an incredibly bad decision.

Putting herself on display like that is inviting trouble and she will find that when she want's privacy she will not get it as she is inviting the paparrazzi into what is an essentially private aspect of her life. If she is willing to share on that level then there are no lines at all left and so, no lines can be crossed.

If have to admit I am gobsmacked. Even at her most familiar with the media, Diana never invited them into such an intimate aspect of her life. I don't believe I am going to say this but, someone needs to set some standards for Kathrine because she is sowing the wind and is like to reap the whirlwind!

I found this strange...but indeed she must know already that she is going to be caught in the hair saloon near that window!

I tend to think Kate just trys to go about her normal business as if not a Royal and thus sits wherever and let's whatever happen.....I still haven't figured out if this is a good strategy or not yet.....on one Hand ok yes she is a non working royal so just a regular person but on the other as another poster said hard to complain about paps when they are being given such a clear shot....

Or maybe she has sat there in the past and it was no big deal and expected the same results. Like Mike Tindall in certain respect, she needs to understand that dating and marrying into the royal family are two totally different things and as a result, she will have more attention focused on the most minute things in her life. Things that she did in the past or know one had an interest in will be looking for a particular picture. I would also think that possibly someone alerted the press that she was there. Who even knew she was in town?

Either way, I don't consider this to be a capital offense. She was photographed with rollers in her hair, its not like she was flossing her teeth or caught kicking a kitten. So there is no need IMO to sound the warning bells about Kate's behavior.
