I think it's quite stupid that a journalist handed the microphone towards Kate... Don't you think?

It is amazing how 2 and half people can cause such a raucous. George is a cutie and I liked the blue onesie. I am sure all of them are knackered, and I include their helpers when say this too. They have a lot of staff with them who are all just as tired as William and Catherine. I am sure they all just want to get to a bed. Long haul flights are exhausting, particularly jumping through several time zones.

Did they stop in Dubai? I love that airport!

I think that shows that the top priority is **Get the story!** and even an uttered growl from Kate or a wail from George would be heard around the world. It showed absolutely no consideration for a couple traveling with a small baby on a very long and tiring flight.

This is where I wish George had learned to do a raspberry. He could get away with it and also express the family's sentiments at the time nicely.

The poor woman can't even yawn in private. The closest I came to this type of flight I was being ferried on a military transport from McGuire AFB (NJ) to RAF Upper Heyford via Dublin and Rhein-Main. Ended up a 24 hour flight. I was exhausted and I did not have a baby to take care of!

I also wish they had turned around and given the crowd a view of George kicking and waving his arms, who is a big strapping boy BTW. It would have only taken a minute of their time and made a nice impression. It's the little things that count, you know.....

Kate and William might not want to smile and wave, but George doesn't seem to mind the cameras. Quite a cute pic. http://resources3.news.com.au/images...8d2f3f624e.jpg

I sympathise with them because it is a horrible flight and they probably are exhausted and just want to get to their destination but, let's not forget they have been in the first class cabin with its proper beds. Although they will still be tired and jetlagged, its a lot easier to sleep when you can lie flat, have heaps of space and warm blankets and, if you want to hand a cranky baby to a nanny (I'm not saying they did).

I think it's a bit unfair judging interest by the number of people turning up at the airport in the early morning (before 7am) just to see them transfer onto another plane. It will be different when they actually start their tour here.

I was surprised there was no wave, it would have taken seconds and those who took the trouble to turn up would have appreciated it.

No time for waving. The Cambridge's were busy changing planes and will be all waves once they make their official arrival.

And the little boy had absolutely no idea who they were waiting to see. I doubt he was heartbroken over not getting a wave.

The boy and his mother were behind a fence, mixed in with the tv crews and photographers. I doubt Kate and William even knew anyone was waiting for them. The tour doesn't kick off until they land in New Zealand. We'll get plenty of pictures of them waving and showing off Prince George then.

Imagine how special they would have felt if they had been given a smile or a wave! The split second that would have taken would have left a lifetime impression on the people there, and also made a favourable impression on me. It's like actors who go out of their way to sign autographs for fans. They don't have to do it but it makes all the difference and reveals a lot about the person.

I may be wrong by I think that at 4:23 minute you can see the nanny... She entered the aircraft jus before the 2 women at the end

So until they are in New Zealand on on "duty" they shouldn't take the time to acknowledge the people who have gone out of their way to see them?
