I think I see what you mean - they look very much alike, but are not clones.

Catherine has her mother's figure, but she is a lot taller. I haven't seen to many photos of her father, so I don't know as yet if she takes after him too.

Kate certainly has a willowy look, great for wearing fashion, fun for us to look at. Imagine how tall their kid's will be?!!
I admit, I thought she was boring for many years, she never spoke and looked grumpy a lot. Turns out she was just clever at keeping a low profile, on purpose it seems. I apologise for that judgment, I was wrong, for when I heard her speak at the engagment call, she was well spoken, and very engaging I thought. She has the kind of smile that lights up her whole face, glad we will see more of it in future.

It's difficult to say that kids will be taller than parents,look at Princess Michael of Kent,she is very tall for a womam,but her children are just tall like parents and no more

The body size is inherited to a certain extent.

The actual achieved size depends also on the quality of food of the people, especially the intake of protein. The individual genetic constitution limits the size to a maximum. You inherit a range or parameters. How tall you actually will be, or where the final result of your size is in the range, depends on environmental factors. Since environmental factors have not improved significantly in recent decades (since the 70's) , the children of William and Catherine will not be (probably) much bigger than they are. I would guess a height for C + W's children: Girls about 180cm, Boys 195 cm. So similar or only slightly taller than C and W.

I come from a tall family myself. I'm 177cm, my dad 194cm, my mum 175cm, my sister 175cm, grandma 172cm, father's sisters 175cm, their children/cousin 190cm (male), 176cm (female),.... although the parents are already quite tall, me, my sis., cousins don't become a lot taller. There seems to be a border somewhere.

Well, isn't William 6'3" or so? In heels, she appears to be several inches shorter than he. So I'm inclined to believe the 5' 8" number.

Interesting tidbit on Kate's and Will's personality as seen from their handwriting:

Kate Middleton, fiance of Prince William
Prince William of Wales

Very interesting. Thank you for sharing.

I seem to recall that Diana always felt she was born to be a princess one day. I wonder if Catherine Middleton of the Middle Class felt the same? The way she seems to ex-out the M in her last name ist interesting. Makes one curious how she will sign the wedding registry as Catherine Mountbatten-Windsor. Will she ex-out the M there as well? Maybe we'll be able to see.

My last name begins with an "M", and I remember trying many different ways to write it when I was in high school, and Catherine's way was one of the variations I tried out. I ended up using another type of "M", but I don't think there is anything to this...just someone wanting to jump on the bandwagon.

Kate Middleton Quits Party Pieces : People.com

I am very curious to the reactions...

However, the article mentions that the original source is The Daily Mail, so it may just be another piece of nonsense. Think of it what you will

That is interesting, my last name begins with an "M" as well and I guess I have also written it in several styles. According to me I still do at times, I don't always write in the same style - depending on my mood at the moment.

What does that say about my character?

With the Daily Mail, I definitely take their information with a grain of salt. And I suspect we will get the normal "nastygram" posts from its readers. With that in mind, it does sound like Kate had a normal workload working with and for her parents. Of course, its subjective. The same people will question her work eithic and commitment because they didn't see her go to work everyday and because she had a flexible schedule.

And again, as someone who has worked for myself (as a realtor during the height of the boom), there are plenty of times that it appeared that I wasn't working during normal work hours. But I was very busy nontheless. Its all about time management and good work ethic. There are plenty of people in the workforce who don't fit into the mold of what is considered working. And they all work very hard.

Facebook has deleted an account of Kate Middleton. But this Kate Middleton was another Kate Middleton.
