She's living a fairy tale -- literally. That doesn't happen to everybody.

I see in such articles poorely hidden "envie" and the desire to destroy "Kate's public image".Sometimes I have a feeling that someone in power has a lot of hatred against Kate.
Maybe I am wrong,this is my subjective opinion.
The author seems to feel sorry for Kate from what I read. Are you thinking he's being sarcastic?? I don't care for her myself but I don't hate her and there's no jealousy either. He's far too young for me and I wouldn't have shot in hell if I were his age.

I also read it like the reporter was criticizing the 'bitterness' towards Kate

[btw, off topic maybe, I must congratulate the members of TRF. Even if we don't agree in everything, the majority of people here seemed to be able to construct arguments around a thread. Far different from another forum that I had the displeasure of checking out. There you can definitely see bitterness and child-like comments. Jezz, I wonder if they know how stupid they look?! ]

That's how I read it too. More of a criticism of the people who are being unkind to Kate

Yes, just months apart. In one of those programs aired days after the announcement, a former leader of the expedition talked about them.

Kate DOES drink alcohol, although she doesn't over indulge.

Kate's eye color is hazel-blue/green. They can appear green or blue depending on what she is wearing and the lighting.

As for the rest.....if the writer couldn't get the basics right, then I have to imagine the rest is rather loosely factual as well.

Oh wow she's tall! I figured though cause when she stands by Will there's not much of a height difference. If I stood by Will I'd be just above his waist! :)

My guess is that she speaks at least some Italian, as she has spent part of her Gapyear there

I would say she takes after her mother in coloring and her eyes, but exactly like her? No. I don't see it.

I didn't mean exactly in a precise, exact way. Kate looks like her mother, minus all the wrinkles and aging. I definitely see it.
