My point was that perpetual peerage does still occur. 20 or 30 years in this monarchy is a flash. They don't give one for 100 or so years, it might be out of favor.

IMHO you make them weaker as they are. If the queen wanted to bestow an honour on somebody, she'd find a way to get them added to the honours list. Same with Charles.

That's strange. The same source - The Peerage - lists Massey Henry Edgecumbe Lopes, 2nd Baron Roborough as having only one child, George Edward Lopes, who in turn has one son, Harry Lopes (Laura's husband).

Apparently Uncle Gary is in the headlines again:
"Uncle uses Kate mask to plug his jobs firm as he boasts about relationship with Royals on Twitter"

See link http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...jobs-firm.html. Not a smart move in my opinion.

Really? I guess he still has some growing up to do. I would think he would much rather be a respectable chap and be a part of the family but I guess not. Its quite unfortunate. Grow up Gary.

Pippa Middleton puts poor book sales behind her as she enjoys the tennis with brother James | Mail Online

Pippa and James watching tennis - the other male in the photo looks a lot like Earl George Percy to me - but perhaps someone more familiar w/ the faces can correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, that looks either like Mr. Percy or Mr. Penry-Jones. Anyway, Pippa has produced a book, even though it hasn't been on the Top 10 list...

She's looking quite pretty, too, even though she has the family's make-up curse.

Unfortunately for the Middletons, they can choose their friends but not their family.

You are correct -that is George Percy next to James.

Embarassing moments have been recorded by Sophie, Edward, Philip, Anne, Mark (when married to Anne), Zara, Andrew, Sarah (allegedly ongoing), Charles, Camilla, William, Catherine, Harry, just for starters. How embarassing depends on when the event occurred, your personal view of the indiviudal and (IMO) which newspaper you work for.

But of course this applies to all of us! Perhaps the less said about that the better.

I'd be amazed if there's a family on the planet that doesn't have its own black sheep, or at the very least a grey-tinged one.

My family certainly has a couple.

I was going to say I didn't have a black sheep in my family, then I remembered my uncle. : O

Duchess of Cambridge's family members

Niraj Tanna@IkonPictures
I'm hearing that extended members of Michael Middleton's family will be in Bucklebury over the Christmas period. #Christmas #lasttweet #2012

I read that on twitter and I wonder how many siblings Michael Middleton has.Doyoy know that? How many cousins Kate has? I remember Adam and Lucy Middleton being refered as Kate's cousins when they attended Pippa's book launch party.

I know Gary's Goldsmith (Carole's brother) has a 10 year old daughter, but I'd like to know about Kate's paternal family members

Who would have guessed
Kate Middleton Pregnant: Now family launch newborn baby range in wake of daughter's royal pregnancy | Mail Online

They had it all in the drawer to pull it out the day Kate announced her pregnancy. Very predictable.

Yes because the Middleton family business , that's been around for 30 years selling party supplies should just pack it in and live on the dole.

I wonder how many other party supply businesses in the UK and around the world sell prince and princess themed merchandise?

If it were offensive to W & C, the site would have been pulled already. Apparently, they (W&C) are OK with it...
