Oh, this should be really nice. Kate will be in her element with this meet-and-greet occasion.

Saw the article about this in the DM too. I'm very excited to see Catherine at this event. She'll do marvelously, because I feel that talking to people is her strength. She strikes me as someone who does great when interacting with people in small groups or one-on-one. Can't wait to see how this goes.

Good for Kate that she's low-key, unpretentious and fetches clothing herself during these shopping trips; she continues to maintain her down-to-earth manner. I hope it always remains that way.

Thanks for the article, Ghost.

No prob happy we didn't get pix the way we used to. I like that they're leaving her alone to do what she wants in her down time.

She's obviously become a master of the stealth approach to shopping - in for a sudden attack of retail therapy and departing before anyone's the wiser!

Absolutely in agreement here. I think Catherine is drawing as little attention to herself as possible and therefore sends a message that she's just like other customers and doesn't expect special treatment. Like you, I hope she doesn't change that aspect of herself as the years go by. It makes her more endearing and approachable.

I think it's great that the press is choosing to let her go shopping without any fanfare. It's her 'down' time, and she deserves to be left alone to do whatever it is she needs to do.

I can tell you, that if I were at that store, I wouldn't have noticed her or known about her presence until checking on a place like here and seeing this discussion. That kind of 'blending in' takes a certain amount of stealth indeed. Also, I applaud the store and its' employees and other patrons for not sending any pictures of her in action. Good way to discourage the press, I think.

I have to say, having spent a bit of time in the US over the last couple of years, it amazes me how much press Kate gets in the US. It wasn't just the usual celebrity magazines, but the Today show and GMA etc. had reports on everything she did.

It's very telling that all the networks have dedicated royal correspondents now. It's offered the usual royal hacks in the UK a lot of extra work, no matter how crap they are (Katie Nicholl, I'm looking at you).

I tell you, we may have hated the monarchy back in the day but we're enthralled by it now!

IA that we are fascinated with royalty, though I think it is primarily limited to the Brits. But, I think most Americans like to admire from afar-- in that we don't want a monarchy here.

I agree here. Many in the States are fascinated with the royals, but most in the sense of the glamour and lifestyle, rather than the historical importance. I went shopping for a birthday gift for myself (got some cash and thought I'd put it to good use) and saw a really nice jewelry set. When I was buying it, the lady behind the counter said that the pieces looked like something Catherine would wear, and went ahead to tell me about Diana's engagement ring, and what else have you. I thought it was kind of nice, because I don't meet too many people that share my interest in royals (though mine goes beyond the surface, which drives people insane).

I've noticed that as well. When people hear 'royals', they automatically assume that Great Britain is the only country in the world with a royal family. Of course that family gets most press, so it's only natural that people in the States would know of their existence.

Well, here's my contribution for today. A nice article from 'The Telegraph'. It's nice to see that the support for the monarchy is not going down.

Diamond Jubilee and 'Kate effect' lead to record support for the monarchy, poll shows - Telegraph

Everyone just loves to have their say on Kate. How did these people fill their magazines and newspapers before the wedding? Everyday the DM seem to have about 6 articles about Kate on their website. Can you imagine how mad it's going to be when she eventually gets pregnant?

It'll be a pandemonium of gigantic proportions, that's for sure. However, I don't see it stopping anytime soon, because anything Catherine and William-related sells like hot cakes almost anywhere one looks.

Media is just biding their time with filler stories until William and Kate start a family. Then it'll be a free for all for sure!
