Gosh, there must have been a lot of cars in Kate's driveway. And all those parents. Of course, the Troop could be just three boys.

probably more likely there were a few parents and the troop leaders to chaperone the troop for a BBQ and then the destination was Kates. I would assume that it wasnt told to everyone upfront or there would be an abundance of parents etc

I seem to recall that their place in Angelesy is a farm house on a bigger piece of property - this BBQ may have occurred at one of the other buildings on the place. either way it is a sweet story and nicely done.

It sounds like a wonderful time was had by everybody involved. One thing most people wouldn't associate with a princess is gutting fish though. EWWWW . Not exactly my cup of tea either but I do make a mean s'more!

Major kudos to Kate for gutting a fish. You wouldn't catch me doing that. She just went up a few more steps on my ladder of respect.

What a nice treat for the Scouts. Ah, the little things we find out about the Duchess, like wielding a deft hand gutting fish. Watch out, William, don't get her angry!

Seems Catherine is rehearsing for the day when she is the hostess of Royal garden parties or for the (in-)Famous family BBQs in Balmoral. Nice story, though. My nephew is with the Scouts, too and his little tribe often does BBQs at the garden of one of the members or volounteers, where all of that small "family" are invited but noone else. so if Catherine has attached herself to one of those small tribes, then only the members including the parents would come, of course.

I can picture it clearly. The whole family fishing on the River Dee and Kate gutting and cleaning the fish while Philip grills them to perfection on the BBQ. And we must not forget the corgis keeping them all on their toes.

It definitely seems that everyone involved enjoyed themselves. I for one, cannot stomach smelling cooked fish at times, so touching raw fish would send me over the edge (not in a good way either). Kudos to Catherine for being able to do this.

Yep, same here. She's certainly very handy when it comes to cooking/kitchen-related skills.

Oh, Heaven help us all ! I can just picture fish guts flying around during a rather heated disagreement (which would probably result in having to keep a really strong air freshener handy) . I won't want to be near their house if this were to every occur .

This is definitely a delightful picture . I think Catherine would actually really get a kick out of doing something like that. She seems to feel at home when outside in the woods or on the beach.

I would have liked to have been a fly on the wall when HM and the DoE heard about Catherine's fish gutting.

Small tidbit but while William showed his father around the RAF last Tuesday, Catherine was having tea with Camilla. Courtesy Mark Stewart's twitter.

Kate Middleton Marie Claire South Africa Cover: Cool Or Creepy? (PHOTO, POLL)

The Marie Claire editiorial

Marie Claire South Africa August 2012 : Kate Middelton by Photoshop - the Fashion Spot

The cover is puzzling. It is unclear what an editor/editors of Marie Clair SA tried to accomplish.

It's meant to look a bit fake. The editor said, "the cover is actually a hyper-real illustration of Kate, meant to be a fan art tribute to fashion's new royal icon." It's not intended to look like a photo, but a fan's interpretation of what she might look like.

I suppose that given Kate shows no desire to pose for any magazine, it was inevitable that one would take matters into their own hands. There does seem to be a bit of a trend for international publications to manipulate images of Kate at the moment for some reason.

I guess their attitude is that if they can't get the real thing on their cover, they'll just fabricate it!

I suppose there's not a whole lot of difference between the magazines photographing celebs or models for their covers and then photoshopping them to death. They're equally fake.
