I think perhaps it is time to move on from the gardening story, unless there is any new information about it. Further bickering posts will be removed.

As for the skiing, W&K went to Meribel in 2012 with her family, but they don't seem to ski much. Maybe as the kids get older?

Even with Nannies, it's a bit harder to travel with two kids. Maybe they didn't feel like it knowing they'll be off to India & Bhutan, without the kids. Better to stay put, let William get his hours in, and they can just be at home with the kids.

I admire how close Kate is with her family, but I, personally, wouldn't want to do the same thing every single year. Missing out here and there isn't a bad thing.

But I also can't do the beach anymore, so what do I know, lol.

Sparking water for the Duchess. Might we read something in this choice of beverage?

Is alcohol mandatory on a date?

Well, William had a glass of wine, so perhaps there is a reason Kate didn't join him?

Well, she could be still breastfeeding. I know she only breastfed George for 8 months, while Charlotte is currently 9 months. But George might have been weaned a little earlier than she desired since they went on tour with George's shortly after.

Or it could be that she just didn't want alcohol. She's never been a heavy drinker.

I have my doubts that she would be pregnant with their April tour of India and Bhutan. But I suppose they could be. Only they know.

Not with the HG history no way until after the spring tour.

Why does she have to drink alcohol at every meal? She just spent 2 years pregnant or breastfeeding. Probably used to not drinking.

Let's not speculate on a potential pregnancy.

If that is the case, it will be announced in due course.

Any and all additional posts will be deleted without notice.

How do you know she breastfed George for 8 months?

Its kind of nice that W&K go out to the local pub for a bit of one on one time without being unnecessarily hassled and gawked at from all angles. Like all parents with little ones and demands on their time by responsibilities, its just so good to get away every now and then.

Forget the sparkling water debate. What I'm wondering is were they able to get through the entire evening without talking about the kids or were they the prime target of conversation?

It was reported by the british media in March 2014 that George had just been weaned. July 2013->March 2014 is 8 months. Simple math.

If you're tired from looking after children/life in general, the last thing you want is alcohol. Considering how much Kate looks after herself, she may not be a big drinker.

Also after pregnancy, many women lose their ability to hold alcohol. After having two children in 18 months, one glass will now put me to sleep! Also, children have a great knack of waking you up in the middle of the night....

When my husband and I go out I rarely drink, he almost always has a drink.

I wouldn't read anything into it.

I'm happy they had a night out. Happy they seem to still like on another and chat/laugh with one another. Glad their teeth seem to be functioning. All else is speculation and not really our business unless they decide to tell us.

This comes under the heading of too personal.

It is also ridiculous that (a) anyone believes that the press would know and (b) would believe the type of press that would publish such rubbish.

Why is this allowed when no one is allowed to speculate that someone "might" be pregnant?

Way too personal

I have to agree. It's okay if the thought hits your mind, you see a feature or somthing that makes you think that maaaaybeee.. But that's where is should stop, I think. It's not something strangers on the internet should sit and speculate about.

Well, she was definitely breastfeeding George because when she was papped at the grocery store in Wales one of the items in her cart was nursing pads. She has to of stopped at some point. And the British press said it was March.

I guess I’m not one of those people who thinks breastfeeding is a taboo subject to mention in public. It’s very commonplace and healthy, so much so that there are laws protecting women’s rights to breastfeed in public.

Were you in the threads chastising “too personal”, when the press said she delivered George and Charlotte via natural birth. Because labor and delivery is a lot more "personal" and “medical", than breastfeeding.

For me there’s no difference between saying George eats breast milk, and George eats Cheerios.

Frankly, when it comes to breastfeeding you remind me of Queen Victoria and her "Alice the cow" dig.

I do think it is too personal a comment and I'm entitled to my opinion which was politely put forward.

And thank you for the compliment
