I'm still confused here; I wasn't implying anything nor even approaching an opinion, just responding to a questionable report with some humor, the use of which can be touchy and misinterpreted around here at times. However, I can't help how anyone interprets an innocuous remark. A joke, a joke, my kingdom for a joke......

And now, I need a break from this tempest in a teapot!

I'm with you on this; the 'hey sweetie' seems a little out of character for the Duchess (unless of course she's addressing her husband in private). I just see her as someone who would be direct and say something like 'Would you like to go first?', without any unnecessary endearments attached.

Can't imagine 'hey sweetie' but perhaps they misheard and it was something more like....'hey excuse me'

I for one am in agreement here. I do not accept the fact that she said " hey sweetie". Maybe this person misunderstood what she said, if it even was the Duchess in the first place. Just my opinion.

She looks uncomfortable. Flats, little makeup and no smile. Hope that baby comes safely and soon.

She looks fedup as she has spotted the photographer IMO.

One usually feels fedup in those last few weeks! Fed up with being preggers, fed up in having to visit the loo so often, fed up with your clothing choices--

Agree. How often do we shop with a broad smile?

This is very true. For some reason people expect a royal/public figure to walk around with a smile plastered on his/her face almost constantly. To me, Catherine looked like any other person, going about her business, and doing some shopping on a Saturday.

I do, when I get a great bargain! BTW, I like what I can see of her slacks.

To me, she looks quite good for someone who is in the last month of her pregnancy and is probably starting to feel very unconfortable. She's not smiling, but as said, that's normal for someone who is shopping.

The article cracked me up when it referred to the "royal maternity leave" as opposed to (I suppose) a commoner maternity leave? Since she's not technically an employee is it even, technically a leave. Let the poor woman alone!

She looks great! I knew we would see her out&about candids but not so soon after her last public engagement.
I also don't go with a grin on my face when I go shopping, unless I'm speaking happily with someone or over the phone or if I see some clothe's piece that make me go over the moon!|
