Cool

According to the papers William and Kate are going to rent out the Gore Hotel for their out of town guests. Looks very fancy...my favorite room.
The Gore Hotel - Dame Nellie Room.

"There's nothing more deceptive than the obvious fact." Perhaps since the relationship between William and Catherine is so simply based on happiness, honesty, unconditional love, loyalty, mutual respect...that its simplicity has so many people perplexed. One wonders how did they simplify such a complex tradition, British royal engagements. Instead of settling for the simple explanation, people have and continue to theorize and philosophize in search of concealed rationalization.

If that's true it's not a great sign. Hopefully while she was waiting the past 8 years she pondered what her role could be.
No Kate is not going into "Therapy" but "Counseling" and guess what? William is going too! In this case it is the word itself that causes misunderstanding. In the UK, and the Commonwealth for that matter, you get counseling and in the USA it's called therapy.

But, in this case, the "Counseling" in question is Premarital and is a requirement of the Church of England and Roman Catholic church for those seeking marriage within the Church.

Quote:
Christian premarital counseling has Godly intent - Christian premarital counseling prepares a couple seeking marriage to enter into a relationship based upon sacrificial love for one another, and to place the needs of others before the needs of self. The Christian couple is encouraged to invite Jesus Christ to be not only a personal Savior, but also the third cord spoken of in Ecclesiastes 4:12. Jesus becomes an integral partner in the marriage. In times of marital difficulty due to conflict, hurt feelings, financial struggles, or even more serious problems such as infidelity, God calls each spouse within a Christian marriage to repentance and a renewed commitment to the marriage.

To be fair in the US premarital counseling or just counseling in general and therapy are also 2 different things-

Yes, therapy would be more intensive. Counseling would be the appropriate term for the premarital type.

Except for the hair, it looks nothing like either of them. They actually resemble people from eastern Asia.

So the chap from Royal Mint says it is difficult to get an accurate image on commemorative coins? Well if they can get an accurate image of the Queen on all the other coinage, I can't see why they can't do it for commemorative coinage! Had the coin actually looked like the couple in the irst place, there would be no critisism of it! I think Kate looks more like Mia Farrow. Any other people it looks like??

I think she looks like Autumn Phillips on the coin. I realize that's not flattering to Phillips, but the image comes closer to her than to Middleton.

CBC this morning spoke about the coin..they had mixed reactions. IMO I don't like it but I wouldn't mind having one.

If I hadn't been told it was William and Kate I wouldn't have had any idea who they are supposed to be - no similarity at all.
