I like that the recipients from Catherine, William and Harry's charities were there at the ceremony today.

IMO it's a shame the Duchess is involved with this.
It's a thing called Tradition.

I quite agree - and it goes a long way to mitigate the issues people have with commercialism. In this case - it also sends the message from the Duchess that though she will be on hiatus, she remains focused on the charities. I thought it was a masterstroke idea from her/William/their handlers.

I'm not a fan of the print, but the shape of the dress was great and her hair looked terrific. I understand why people don't want the Duchess to get involved in commercialism, but I think that there is only one British cruiseline, so she is promoting the British economy, which all the royals do.

Royals from around the world are constantly "shilling" for companies. Many people consider this type of "economic development" part other job in the era of figurehead/constitutional monarchies.

In the past, when HMQ or other members of Royal Families launched a ship,if it were televised, the coverage didn't include an extended promotional 'tour' of the vessel, nor a speech from the chairman extolling the virtues of the 'worlds largest floating pastry shop'...

i'm glad people from the Duchess' charities were included, but i still find the whole 'shebang' rather cheap.

The samething happened when The Queen launched QM2 and when the Duchess of Cornwall launched the Queen Victoria. There were TV coverage's and lots of promotions.

Today the world has embraced new royal Princesses in the form of Mary of Denmark and Maxima of the Netherlands. But it's questionable whether even these hugely popular, increasingly glamorous future Queens will ever capture the world's imagination in the same way as Diana.
As Mario acknowledges: "She really was a true Princess".

Yes, the "hey, sweetie" pushes the envelope just a tad. Next will be, "Can you run into the store for a packet of chips for me?"

I think she would have said, "It's my turn, innit?"

I'd heard somewhere that she was with her father today, so maybe it's true. And why wouldn't she offer to let someone go before her? She's not an ogre.

It's not what she did, it's the way she apparently said it. "Hey sweetie"? It just doesn't sound like something she would say.

Not knowing her personally, I don't know if she'd use the word "sweetie" or not. Be that as it may, whatever word she may or may not have used, there's no reason to think she wouldn't allow someone to go before her, or would order someone to go inside to get a snack for her.

My remark about the snack was facetious, nothing more, and wasn't meant to be taken literally. I thought attaching the grinning graphic would have gotten that message across.

It wasn't the specific wording ... rather, it was the implication, and that's fine. We're all entitled to our opinion. I simply stated mine. I didn't require an explanation.
