I remember, few times she partied long hours with William and he was visibly drunk. Harry is not only one who likes good fun.

Okay, Catherine never danced on the table like some other HRH reportedly did but she and William had been out till the small hours and both looked a little bit worse for wear... I guess these times are over now...

Thank you! I don't know what is with this idea that her uncle should just be ostracized and ignored now that she is a Duchess. We don't know much about their relationship, perhaps despite his faults he is loving towards his family. And I could have sworn that he has been behaving well since the incident years ago when he talked to the press.

Plus... what did he really do that was so wrong? At this point, it's well known that News of the World set out to deliberately entrap people and make them look bad to sell papers. In fact, their tactics were so dishonest and such bad journalism that they were forced out of business and many people associated with them are under investigation.

At the very worst, we saw him buying cocaine (which is bad, but we already knew he was an addict- he's honest about his struggles with addiction) and we saw him talking about his royal connections in what he assumed was complete privacy, and probably while he was under the influence.

The man's an addict, and that's sad and tragic, but he hasn't really done anything to merit the level of disdain directed towards him. In fact, he's been a very successful businessman and by all appearances, he has a good relationship with his family as long as he's clean and sober.

I don't see why it would be a bad thing for the Duchess to talk to him about his battles with addiction and use that has her personal inspiration for helping others struggling with the same illness.

One thing very important to a recovering addict too is to have the love and support of family. With Kate seriously taking on this issue, it shows her uncle that he's definitely not alone and on the other hand, perhaps it shows those that she reaches out to that addiction has affected her life personally and she's with them in the struggle and not just an outsider looking in.

BTW I agree HRHHermione, that Uncle George has never done anything that deserves the treatment he gets from some. It sometimes seems that he is just used by people to continue to drag Kate down and paint her as being "lower" than the station she has married into; and that her and her family are social climbers.

Nightclubs are by definition places to go for fun and dancing until the small hours. I hope they still find the time to go out with friends and have a good time - away from cameras and prying eyes.

I think they were thinking more of the "wee small hours" and "looking a little bit worse for wear". Perhaps they hope for a new "family" focused Cambridge couple.

In her recent tour of the north-east, the Duchess of Cambridge met members of M-PACT, a project helping families affected by addiction. Olivia Parker looks at their ground-breaking work:
