Obviously different to an aristocratic tan.

Thanks, Lumutqueen and EIIR. Here I was thinking a tan was just a tan. Who knew there was a difference between an aristocratic tan and a commoner tan.

A bit more on next week's engagement via 'MAJESTY' Magazine's facebook page:

The Duchess of Cambridge, Patron, will visit the National Portrait Gallery’s 'Road to 2012: Aiming High' exhibition on 19 July, St James's Palace has announced.

The Duchess will join selected guests at the launch of the exhibition and meet some of the photographers and sitters involved in the Road to 2012 project.

There will be four short speeches during the opening of the exhibition, including one from Tanni Grey-Thompson, the UK’s most successful Paralympian and Ambassador for the London 2012 bid team.

Oh, she does indeed. As has been stated many times, Catherine looks great in casual wear.

That sounds about right. I'm not a decorating buff, but I understand it can be quite addicting if one has the knack for it. Hopefully she'll enjoy it to the fullest.

What fun she must be having! This is so much fun choosing the colors and fabrics - and when you have the money - as they have - it must be exhilarating not to worry about cost.

Wouldn't it be fabulous if when it was all done they allowed a little peek inside somehow? I'd be very interested to see what she chooses for color and design. Unlikely, though, I'm guessing.

I think it would be lovely if we could see what the finished product would look like, but I have a feeling that they won't go for it. Maybe once they have kids, and choose to do a type of photo shoot/TV special that William's parents did when he and his brother were little, we may get a little glimpse of the interiors of the apartment. I'd be very curious to see what they would do with a room designated for the kids to play in .

I would say the chances of William and Kate doing a magazine spread or allowing cameras into their newly renovated home are precisely zero. These two refused for weeks to divulge the name of their dog, so I'd say they're highly unlikely to be willing to let the world have a look inside their home.

So true. As trivial as what the name of their dog was at the time, I think perhaps it was a chance to make a statement to the public and the media that details pertaining to their family and private lives are going to remain just that... private.

If this is true, Kate had a little BBQ for the scouts!

Lee Crimes ‏@iamleecrimes : So my 8 year old stepbrother went over to Kate Middleton's house lastnight for a BBQ with his mate's. I think I'm about to cry with jealousy

Lee Crimes ‏@iamleecrimes : Like....he's 8!! He doesn't even realise that she's a mega babe! And she had a BBQ on the go! Kate Middleton cooking burgers!! Oh my days.
