If this is the same article that I read yesterday, it says more about Kate's job at Party Pieces than has been talked about before. I think it says that she was in charge of marketing? That's definitely NOT a non-job, then. I'd had the feeling that Kate had a "real job" with her parents, and I'm glad that some details have come out about it--even if it is the Daily Mail.

All the articles and links are fascinating.

I'd like to think I'm fairly objective about Miss Middleton, as I am an American and do not have a large set of preconceived notions about how British young ladies should behave, or princesses, either. As an outsider, I read with interest how various British people think about the princess-to-be, and find the criticisms hard to understand.

I should state that I am a great admirer of British culture (your American Idol - type shows are so much better than ours!), and your comedies are so inspiring. We Americans may sometimes be accused of having no standards (we do have them!) but day to day, we are more bombarded with the asinine behavior of Charlie Sheen than anything remotely resembling royal doings.

So, to me, having "met" Kate Middleton only recently, through her engagement interview and mostly print pictures, I have to say I'm impressed. She seems to work at keeping her private feelings private (I like that), she seems intelligent and fair-minded, and most of all, she and Prince William seem to work as a team, they seem devoted to each other's comfort and happiness. They exhibit none of the rude jousting behaviors seen in so many public American courtships. She defers to him just the right amount (I would too, in that position, although I am a rather outspoken person), and she is taking her role seriously.

I dislike seeing so many expectations of her (especially regarding her "work"), as it would be perfectly fine, in their position, for her "work" to be mainly looking after him, herself and their relationship. That would be the best for any future children, as well.

Jobs that involve any public exposure are exhausting; those that involve more scrutiny are even more exhausting. She seems to be adapting graciously, but I know there must be constant strain. Most people do not have a job where their every public word is scrutinized, but if one has to speak regularly to even small groups of people, there's work there already - and she won't be paid for it. She's donating her love and time to Prince William (and by extension to the monarchy). If she decides she wants another job, that's fine, but if she were my daughter, I'd advise her to keep her time open for the duties that are going to keep piling up.

I don't remember anyone expecting Lady Diana Spencer to have an actual job, in fact, it was assumed she would no longer work at a pre-school (IIRC).

Once either of these two young people have committed themselves to any particular charitable enterprise, they will be expected to keep it up lifelong or be regarded as having "dropped" their interest/support, so they need to choose carefully.

Kate Middleton seems very capable of thinking all this through for herself, and it seems to me that she and Prince William, in arranging their own marriage, have possibly had more dialogue about all these issues than any potential King and Queen ever in British history. Prince William knows what happened to his mother, he's articulate, he shows every sign of being a man who is completely open with his future wife.

I like all of that, and I like them both. We have no one in America to compare to them (help me out, Americans, if you can...I can't think of anyone).

According to the biography she did a similar expedition with Raleigh International to Chile as William did.

According to an article found on the site, Kate's trip was in 2001. But it's just one more thing this couple has in common and have to share between them.

This is an article about Kate's lady bodyguard:

Husband of Kate Middleton's bodyguard was killed in freak skiing accident | Mail Online

The article itself is a bit sad and tragic, but there's a good photo of the bodyguard so you can identify her next time she's seen with Kate.

You can see her on the left side in this photo at St. Andrews:

There's an article with some information about Kate's team of wedding advisors (her sister and mother, naturally) but also a mention of whom she consulted in order to choose a dress designer:

Express.co.uk - Home of the Daily and Sunday Express | Express Yourself :: Kate Middleton: Meet the team behind the Princess-To-Be

Clues continue to point to Alexander McQueen, although I'm curious about the style leanings of Alexandra Shulman after reading the artlcle.
