And if you're sitting by the television in the States with a phone handy, you can order one during commercials now for only $19.95! I didn't actually see the commercial but hubby did here. I imagine though I'll be seeing that commercial a lot between now and April 29th though.

This does show me however that the wedding is most likely to be hugely watched here in the US.

I went to that Web site and saw the ring. It looks quite good in my eyes.

This is just disgusting! They obviously have nothing else to talk about. I can imagine them at their morning meeting trying to figure out and make up stories for the week...how pathetic!

I feel sorry for Kate...she'll never catch a break.

Sorry but how's it disgusting? Papers have to sell stories, Catherine knows that and she knows she'll never catch a break. She will be a royal.

It's disgusting to see how they stoop so low by comparing hands and fingernails. It's a sad thing that she'll never catch a break. Like Elton John said, "I hope Kate knows what she's getting herself into."

I'll take the waxwork model over the real William any day!
Because his waxwork model has more hair?

It's (a bit) outdated, how old was William when this model was made?

AND to top it off, it they can stir the pot a bit and conjure up a story about the relationship between Kate and Zara being not the best .... all the better for their bottom line. Controversery is their style.

Pathetic yes, disgusting no, IMO. What else are they supposed to compare, breast size?
The issue has sparked debate on this forum, and it was mentioned even before the article was published.

The article just says what's already happening and that it will continue. It's not like they're going from staff to no staff just because they are now married.

I know, who said any diffrent, I think that it is great that they do their own things.. I love the pictures of them at the food store and taking out the trash... Hope she gets to keep that part of herself.

Nobody said any different, why quote my post?

When she becomes Queen, I doubt we'll see much of the real Catherine.

it's quite normal nowadays for Royals to have no round-the-clock staff. I think one of the Danish queen's chefs quitted because the queen wanted him to prepare meals for the evening that she could microwave or warm-up in the evening, so all staff could have their evening's off. The Swedish queen cooks every sunday evening for the family and later the king and princes Carl Philip and Daniel do the washing-up.

And it's not as if Catherine won't have the time to keep her home cozy in the beginning. This will change the more she does Royal duties or when they start their family and then they must bother with more staff. But it really seems Catherine is much more interested in William the man than William the greatest heir of the UK.

The scandinavian royals are a lot different to the BRF.

They've had no royal helpers since living together in Angelsey, this article makes it sound like it's something new for them. Which it isn't.

I'm hoping she's not going to use Williams RAF career as an excuse not to do royal duties and keep her home busy. I also don't think she should have children straight away, she should learn "to be royal" then have a few heirs for the throne.

She might be more interested in William the man, but that doesn't mean she won't recieve the trappings of being the future kings wife.

Heir to the heir = William by the way.

If she was an ordinary person, I could see her waiting, adjusting to marriage before having children.
But under the circumstances, I think she should have a child right away, or there'll be enormous pressure from the media.
Every time she steps outside people will be measuring her and speculating is she looks heavier, etc.

did she only live with him on weekends or during the normal working days as well? i read somewhere that they did have a chef whom they decided to give the night off when they went to buy chips and stuff and their cctv footage was published.

Only she and William would know what she's really interested in. And to me, William seems to come in a package, not alone.
