Princess of Durham, please dear heart are you saying The Daily Fail is not one hundred per cent accurate, one hundred per cent of the time? Its all a tad reminiscent of PW's parents, isn't it?

The same daily mail who had to issue to retraction to Carole Middleton for saying she moved in Amner which caused marital issues with Mike.

As William said in his engagement interview- Don't alway believe what you read .

According to RE Kate didn't attend

Quote:
They could hardly have felt more at home. For when, yesterday afternoon, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge attended the most discreetly arranged of high society weddings in the beautiful village of Thurlestone in Devon, the guest list included many of their closest circle.

Pippa Middleton, Kate’s sister, was there to see upmarket estate agent and amateur boxer Bear Maclaine marry pretty socialite Daisy Dickson, and so was TV presenter Natalie Pinkham. Indeed the guest list included many of the friends who gathered for William and Kate’s own marriage at Westminster Abbey four years ago.

Yet The Mail on Sunday can reveal that the presence of the Cambridges in Devon was a cause of genuine surprise to many.

Indeed, some believe it was a near miracle that they appeared at all.

Maybe Rebecca English should have told her DM colleague who wrote the story. Twitter has WK on a train but it doesn't say what train or where they got off.

Fantastic, now we have a mystery, where they there, weren't they there and a train thrown in! Any haunted houses? Any pesky kids to solve the mystery? But above all where is Lupo? Forgive me but journalistic standards appear to be falling apart. I will go back to my sick bed now.

The summer of 2013 is when she misses most of the weddings the DM complains about. There was a certain chubby cheek prince born then who was a super cranky baby for the first 5 months and didn't get a full time nanny until March 2014. I wonder if the two things are linked��

In November 2011, she also attended her Uncle Simon Middleton's wedding - no William. That wedding flew completely under the radar, not surprising as there was only about 40 guests. The Fail never reported on it.

I'd take suggestions that Kate was at yesterday's wedding in Devon with a pinch of salt. She wasn't. Prince William went, though.

Wasn't something similar done in Sweden? I remember Estelle and her parents opening something like that. It would be sweet to see Charlotte and George doing an event like that in the future.

I remember reading something about that and seeing pictures of Estelle walking through it. I believe it was perhaps fairy tale based as there was a photograph of Estelle kissing a frog.

The fairy tale Estelle thing was an official gift from a county. It's a forest trail with fairy tale theme. So it's quite different than the town doing princess-PR :P But I understand what you're saying.

It was Estelle's Christening Gift from her Duchy IIRC and I still think was such a lovely idea.

To me this is a total non story...their kid is 3 months and kate is probably still breast feeding....I mean geez if I was her I would hate going to all the weddings that they are invited to...I think going to more than one is too much...

Thank you for clarifying it further. I appreciate it. With all the Royal events that take place, it's hard to remember the exact details.

Personally I loved it especially the subtle reminder to her fathers wedding speech about not instantly turning from a frog to a Prince.

Why does it matter why Kate skipped the wedding at the last moment? Maybe one of the kids got sick or Kate got sick? I'm sure William gave his apologies to the couple.
