Spare a thought for the Duchess of Cambridge | Columnists | Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express
Quote:
AS we fondly wish each other a Happy New Year (and I sincerely hope that comes true for you), let’s spare a special thought for the Duchess of Cambridge who is going through a sickness hell that we men can’t imagine in order to deliver a future heir to the throne.

I must say my thoughts are too with the Cambridges during this New Year Season. I hope Catherine's sickness will just ease away so she can go on to have a beautiful pregnancy in the New Year.

I also thought the idea of her not being titled Queen in the future is a slap in her face and William's face. This young lady deserves to be called William's Queen Consort.

Kate Middleton as you have never seen her before: Duchess of Cambridge is portrayed in jelly beans, Marmite and Lego | Mail Online
Quote:
The first official portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge will be unveiled any day now.
The painter believed to have created the picture, which will hang in the National Portrait Gallery, is Paul Emsley, a 65-year-old Wiltshire artist famed for his extrordinarily realistic, almost photographic, portraits.
With Emsley’s picture likely to divide opinion — art critic Brian Sewell has branded his work ‘sickening’ — the Mail commissioned eight artists, from a four-year-old with a box of crayons to a fine artist with a jar of Marmite, to present Kate as you’ve never seen her before.

This article is mostly about Diana's work with landmines but I enjoyed the mention of Kate

Quote:
Now Sandra is a married mother of three – and dreams that one day Prince William’s wife will carry on his mother’s good work.
She said: ‘Princess Diana helped our country. It is a much safer place thanks to her. I would like to meet “Princess Kate”. I have heard that she is doing a lot of charity work and I think she must continue what Princess Diana started. She should come to Angola.’ Sandra, who watched Kate’s wedding to Prince William on the internet and was delighted by news of her pregnancy
Pictured 16 years on: The brave girl Sandra Tigica who won Diana's heart after losing leg in an Angolan landmine blast | Mail Online

I'm just curious are royals allowed to become patrons of anti landmine campaigns? I'm just wondering because I remember Diana got alot of flack for it back in the day. I remember reading something about her melding in politics by supporting it.

The Himalayan Times : From an ordinary girl to Duchess - Detail News : Nepal News Portal
Quote:
Kate came from a working-class stock of coal miners and builders. Her maternal grandmother, Dorothy Goldsmith, became the first member of the family to attempt to improve the family’s social and economic status. She pushed her children to aim high and, as such, Kate’s mother became an airline hostess.
By the time Kate was born, her mother was already looking for new ways to climb the social ladder. In 1987, Kate’s mother founded her own mail-order party goods company, with ambitions of sending her children to private schools. The business was a surprise success, making the Middleton family multi-millionaires.

I think there are church bells rung on royal birthdays on one of the estates too. I think it's at Sandringham.

I think its neat that there is such a salute to Kate on her birthday. Isn't there a special 21 gun salute or something similar that is done when a heir to the throne is born?

Also learned something new today. If one posts several posts with related links instead of editing and adding to one post, one only gets 1 more post to their credit. This old goat learns something new every day.
