Yes, that's what I mean. I am one of very few who think William is only mildly attractive; he's not my cup of tea. Willem-Alexander is my kind o' guy.

Is that the Dutch Crown Prince ? He's a little bit stocky ? IMO, the Danish Crown Prince is so cute. Lucky Mary, I say !

Yes, the Prince of Orange. I like a bit of heft in men.

I can't get over how much Princess Anne looks like HM in that photo of the younger Queen with her two grandsons. And I think William is nice looking but not extremely handsome; Haakon of Norway wins hands down! I've got this date circled on my calendar for the special, and thanks for posting the story, Ghost.

I was really lucky that my granny lived across the street, literally, from my primary school. So while all my school friends were eating the awful school dinners (ugh semolina), I was allowed to pop across the street to my granny's for a brilliant home cooked meal. After school I would also head over for a cup of tea and a slice of Victoria sponge.

So William and I have that in common, although I think his granny's house probably beats my granny's house by a pretty long way.

I love your sense of humor, even if I find Wills quite good looking (in a very nerdy/professor kind of way, which is what I'm attracted to ).

Oh, Frederik is definitely handsome. He looks better in person than in pictures . He looks very sophisticated and distinguished.

You have some lovely memories with your Granny (just like Her Majesty's grandkids). I remember enjoying tea with my gran too. She was an excellent baker.

Yes, Prince William looks more proper and his brother, more casual. I think Harry may be more fun to go out with but if one is to have a relationship, maybe, it's better with William ? LOL

But noone can beat Frederick. He is so cute and he comes across as such a lovely, kind and gentle person !

I think you're right about how the U.S. press treats the British royals. This goes back to a prior discussion on a thread that Americans are fascinated by royalty, especially the British, since we would have been ruled by them if we hadn't rebelled back in the day! So whenever they come to visit or are interviewed by the American press, there will be that aura of deference and fascination that perhaps the British press doesn't have. Although we're glad we don't have a monarchy, we can't help being drawn to it!

I think Haakon with that beard is to die for. I believe Frederik had a beard for awhile to.

That's the Norwegian Crown Prince. Yes ? He is handsome, too, like the Felipe of Spain. There are so many handsome princes in Europe !

Any single one available now ?

So, what is Prince William's current activity ?

He's at work in Wales. We'll be seeing him and Catherine next weekend to take part in the Jubilee celebrations.

I tear up at the love and respect that the Queen and Prince William show in this picture. It was a taken a few years ago and I had forgotten how close they are. He looks so proud...so tall. An amazing picture of love and pride.

I just saw this on Twitter...it is dated May 25th but hadn't seen it before. The Duke of Cambridge has been appointed to the Order of the Thistle!

The Thistle is the Scottish equivilent of the Garter. They are the 2 most senior orders of knghthood in the UK and are in the personal gift of the monarch.

Wow, what a nice gift. Now what is the reason for giving this to William? Is it just because or is it for something he did? Just trying to understand. :)

So, am I right in saying that William has been given the Thistle before either Andrew or Edward? HM is making some interesting decisions at the moment.
