What's one more comparison they will never stop. As for taking the kids why disrupt their routine. They will be well taken care of at home in surroundings they know. And with skype Kate and William will be able to see and talk to them where ever they are.

Interesting that The Mirror keeps calling her Kate Middleton. I never see Danish newspapers media to Mary Donaldson, Belgian media to Mathilde d'Udekem d'Acoz or Luxembourgian media to Stéphanie de Lannoy. I wonder if this is meant as a snub towards Catherine?

I wouldn't read too much into it. I think its more to do with the everyday reader being able to do a search. Middleton is what she was known as for years before her marriage and people tend to remember that moreso than Duchess of Cambridge. Shorter to type too. This is also somewhat common with Camilla. She's called Parker-Bowles still in many places.

Yeah, I agree. While it annoys me, it's all about site clicks, searchability and stuff like that.

I would bet my left hand that all the dates are set. The only things they said would be told at a later date were visits in vulnable areas and a meeting with an official. Sounds more like security reasons than them not knowing. Also, that is a WAY simplified scheduel you put up there.

^^^I agree that the dates have likely been established long ago but for security reasons the details have been announced at a later date.

I'm agreeing with the opinion that full details aren't being released due to security reasons. Especially after what we've seen happening over and over in the world today, I don't think they can be too careful. Its nice that they're giving us a general overall itinerary yet keeping these high profile people's security as a first priority.

  • Lay a wreath at India Gate
  • Visit Ghandi Smriti museum
  • Birthday party for the Queen w speech by William

April 12
  • To be announced engagement
  • To be announced engagement
  • Private meeting with NGOs
  • Bohag Bihu festival evening bonfire at national park

April 13
  • Tour national park
  • Meet with rangers of Kaziranga, w speech by William
