Most people who will watch this documentary will be interested in what they reveal about their personal lives and couldn't care less about saving animals or whatever the charity is - it is just another charity with a royal so 'big deal' - sadly they don't register with most people which one it is they are representing on any particular occasion. There will be some mention of a whatever Willam says - about their private lives if anything - and what Kate wears and nothing much on the issue itself.

This isn't just William and Kate but all the royals - the charities themselves don't actually register or mean anything to the majority of people - it is seeing a royal or noting what the woman was wearing.

I disagree. I think the royals do raise awareness for these causes and I think people do pay attention to the purpose of these events. I know that I pay attention to the causes.

Several of the charities reported that there was a major increase in donations after Kate became their patron.

Did anybody know anything about EACH, Action on Addiction or The Art Room before Kate picked them as patronages? The publicity they get from Kate is priceless. People on twitter raised several thousand pounds for EACH as part of the royal baby fundraising campaign.

I think Iluvbertie is right. A lot of people who will watch the interview will do so only to hear about his private life. They may listen to the whole interview, but they may not pay attention to the real purpose of the interview. That does not take away from the fact that there has been an increase in donations to charities, but I would be that is more in the UK than in the USA.

Wealthy people will watch and then try and get tickets for the Gala dinner and offer donations. And that will include wealthy Americans. Why else give this major coup to CNN?

That's a no go unless its for next year's Gala. The Gala is on September 12th and the program airs on CNN on September 15th.

Always the usual suspects.
Sorry but that's not true, posters post the Daily Mail articles because it has something to do with the Duchess of Cambridge, flattering or not. Has nothing to do with "stirring the pot".


The article has it's own thread as it's about a new book, it isn't a current event for Catherine.

Why would it be a disaster for William to be unmarried now?

Exactly. This pic might be from the US magazine article that's not available now

I don't think she looks tired at all. I think she looks fine.

I didn't think she looked too bad. More harried than tired IMO


I always know we're close to the Anniversary of that horrific and tragic day when you change to that avatar Zonk. May the Friends and Families have strength for tormorrow and those lost be at peace. :(
