Wait wait I'm sorry I may just be reading things incorrectly are we actually saying we believe William was up to no good last night and that the marriage is in trouble? Or are we saying that's what the papers WANT us to think?

I believe it's what the papers want people to think. The media likes to stir things up!

Of course lots of married men go out without their wives. But the DM, knowing that there's no story here, chooses to focus on the fact that Kate wasn't there, knowing people will click on the story to see if he maybe got up to something he shouldn't have. They don't say it outright, but they lead people down that path.

seriously please don't take the daily mail seriously. they call pippa her royal hotness! and make non news out of anything. i think they should be left alone and that the more Kate proves she is welcomed in the family the more the press feel they have to make such "selling" articles. these two have been together for ages. if she had anything to do with harry i'm sure it would have been seen 9 years ago!
I don't understand why the press coverage give so much attention to kate because it mostly makes negative comments on everything other than her fashion sense. it's just empty gossip and prince william is a very solid guy who won't mess around.

The Daily Mail has very much become a parody of itself. I think people are getting wise to their tricks all the time. My point was, there's not much mileage in 'Prince William enjoys a night off with his friends', so they play up the fact that Kate wasn't there to try and get people to click on the article.

The commentary on Kate and her family on sites like DM make me wince, and I don't wince at much. I feel like I need a rabies shot every time I go there.

The man went out for a few with his friend last night and probably needed some black coffee and aspirin this morning. I don't see what the big deal is there. It's not like he's out every other night. No surreptitious videos of him chatting up a woman. I doubt he drove under the influence.

And I agree that the press likes to stir things up - it's these rumors and crazy commentary that makes them money. Commentary from the very same people whom I've no doubt leave their spouses every now and again and go and have a few too many with the friends.

So many of those people (doing the commentary) are downright mean!

Makes you wonder what their own lives are like...

I see the Daily Malice is at it again by writing a seemingly innocuous story and opening it up to vituperative and nasty comments that just want to have a field day with Will and Kate's marriage. Naturally, no other married guy in the history of the institution has ever gone out for a night with their friends.

I see DM is up to its' usual activity; making a story out of nothing. I don't see anything wrong with William going out with his friends. It doesn't mean that the marriage is about to fall apart. Couples cannot always be together, because it's just not healthy. Spending too much time together can have bad consequences as too much time apart, and I think that William and Catherine are trying to find a balance. Also, William works crazy hours, so I can understand perfectly why he'd want to just stay in and relax when in Wales. It's obvious that he's not a party animal of some sort, and an occasional night out with his male friends is more than acceptable.

For clarification purposes I spoke with the person who took the pix and contrary to what DM is saying these were NOT taken Saturday night but on Friday night instead.

Something else to look forward to . I always enjoy William and Harry ride horses. They make it look like art form.

Did the official website really write "THE Prince William, Earl of Strathearn"? Expect better from royal.gov.uk :whistle:

He is listed like that because that is his Scottish title, how he is known in Scotland. Just like Catherine is named The Countess. If you mean the THE, that's probably because he is The Earl of Strathearn.

Sorry but no, the post specifically stated THE as part of his princely title, not as an Earl. It should have been "Prince William, THE Earl of Strathearn". Catherine isn't listed by her given name hence why she is written as "THE Countess of Strathearn". I am aware of his Scottish title, it was actually my preference for his major title instead of Duke of Cambridge, so please don't assume ignorance on my part.
