Another cute quote from Kate. I think this one is from their trip to LA
Quote:
"I’m very, very lucky, he looks after me as much as possible."

- Kate speaking about William.
Such a cute one from William
Quote:
“I am a huge royal fan,” Chandler Rabens, 21, who met the pair said. “I told William he was the luckiest guy in the world because Kate looked so beautiful, and he said, ‘I know!
Found both of them here: william & catherine {a real life fairytale}

Oh and if you ever had a doubt in the world what they were like as boyfriend and girlfriend it was exactly the same just as much love and devotion

See here for Kate's quote: http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lo...d76xo1_400.jpg

Ahhhh. Now that makes sense. Thanks guys! :) So William and Catherine's children (or those who are only styled Lord/Lady) would be elevated to HRH once Charles became King because then they would be the grandchildren of the monarch?

That is correct, Leslie, unless the Queen issues Letters Patent making them HRH in her current reign, to my understanding.

If William and Catherine's first child is a girl, what's actually going to happen? The monarchy is supposed to be updating but this outdated tradition hasn't budged.

Kate: Amazon.co.uk: Sean Smith: Books

The BEST book on Kate thus far.

A chapter on Chelsy and what she thinks of Kate. Chelsy's friends spill the beans. Not very complementary. Chelsy talks about the time they both (Kate) attended Peter Phillip's wedding and Kate and William's relationship. Says she has no time for Kate ---- the book explains why. An interesting read where Sean Smith quotes his sources.

Then the succession law with either be changed to equal primogenture so said Princess will become Queen - or William will wait to have a boy and his girls will be bumped down.

Doesn't matter what I think, it all depends on the first born.

Are we not supposed to desist from speculation about the Cambridge children - if any ?

We were discussing succession rights for any future children, that's quite clear.

I believe if William and Catherine have children, then the oldest son would be styled an HRH per the 1917 Letters Patent:

Quote:
...hereby declare our Royal Will and Pleasure that the children of any Sovereign of these Realms and the children of the sons of any such Sovereign and the eldest living son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales shall have and at all times hold and enjoy the style title or attribute of Royal Highness with their titular dignity of Prince or Princess prefixed to their respective Christian names or with their other titles of honour...
Royal Styles and Titles of Great Britain: Documents

So unless the Queen issues letters patent specifically granting all their children the style HRH then any other children aside from the eldest living son would be afforded the title (the) Lord and (the) Lady as the sons and daughters of a Duke.

(I'm not sure if this counts as speculation, since this would apply to anyone and not specifically William and Catherine's children--if it is, then I apologize!)

I think William and Catherine are very smart in choosing to live as an officer and wife away from public life for a few years. This way they can adjust not only to being married, but ease into their public roles. Of course the media will be interested in them for many many years, but hopefully they will be left alone enough to enjoy themselves.

To go back to something that keeps being reiterated here, do you all really believe that they are living a "down-to-earth" life style on Anglesey? Seriously, I have my doubts about the whole 5-room cottage story. I guess they could be in the Garden Cottage, it's secluded enough. Not the Front Lodge or the Back Lodge though. Both of those are too close to the road.

But my gut feeling is they are living in The Hall. Which explains where the body guards et. al. stay. After all, it's only one of the Baron's two residences. Maybe he and his wife are mainly at Hinton Admiral? Not that it isn't big enough for all of them! And fully staffed.

The curious thing is the Duchess's occasional foray's into local grocery stores. She's bored? ;D

What a curious thing to say. Perhaps she needed to pick up some groceries. William and Catherine do eat, I would imagine

Trust me on this but after getting off of a long shift, you want to eat, eat, sleep and be happy. He's got the hours that when he does return home, its time to love the wife (or husband), eat hearty and relax.

Now that I've read your post again. I feel I can answer it.

Yes I do believe they are living on their own with NO staff in a rented cottage somewhere on Anglesy. And to be honest, the digs they are living in now are a big move up from the amenities they had when William proposed.

Its not unusual. I've heard he cleans toilets well too.
She's better at cooking though but Wills can do a fair job thats edible. He works, she stays home and takes care of the house and cooks meals and does the things any new bride would do, but I do have to admit.. it was a way of life long before the wedding as it was with me and mine. The marriage has gone on for years.. the wedding was last April.

They prefer a life out of the public eye without the trappings of "royals" such as servants and silver and the high gloss of the wood on the walls.

To quote an old Alice Cooper tune in a way, they have popcorn, loving and TV. and that's enough for a working man.

Come to think of it.. that's what I have too.. damn I'm rich.

Just thought of something you all might want to muse on.

and this is a story and pertains to a lot of newly weds and those that have been together for over 50 some years.

they need time to have hall sex. Now its not as kinky as it might seem. Its just something you have once in a while with the "i don't like you much right now" days. We all have times that we pass whomever in the hall and flash that bad finger and say f you. That's hall sex. We've all felt that way, have done it, want to do it or whatever.

Wills and Kate want that opportunity to do that too. If and when they do it, its private as most of our times like that are. No one but the two of them know about it.

yeps.. they're on their own I believe.

My grandmother said something very similar (in different style of course, because the woman doesn't have curse words in English or Russian in her vocabulary) when I told her about William and Catherine living in Wales, near his RAF base with no servants. Her point was the same, they want to keep arguments at home, and not worry about some servant blabbing even if by accident. It's a good plan. Gives the time to really settle in.
