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!

I'd forgotten about that. Good news is it should be hot and sunny tomorrow, so it'll be interesting to see what everyone wears.

I do hope Kate wears something colorful, but I understand if she dresses understated with the focus being on the Queen.

I'm hoping for light, summery and floral - suitable for a tea party in the Big Garden!

I think we will see a repeat dress; possibly from last summer's Canadian tour. The hand painted Jenny Packham silk dress would look lovely at a garden party tomorrow dressed up with a lovely, belt and hat.

If that's the one Kate wore at the polo match, that would be nice with a lovely hat.

There are thousands of people at these things, so a bright colour wouldn't go amiss.
