It's easy, if the press went with all title most people wouldn't know who was being talked about.

Ignorance and rude, I would also say lack of respect. Nowhere in the world would they refer to someone by their name without a title if they had one.

They don't seem to get the point that William can attend an event alone, we will see Kate a lot in the next few days or weeks, so whats the big deal if she decided to do other things while William is having some fun.

I don't know... what if they would have put i.e. Duchess of Cambridge (formally known as Kate Middleton) and so on? That sounds way better. I also think if they would have the titles right from the begining, the readers would have gotten used to who those people they are talking about are. It just takes a little bit of an effort from the press which I don't simply see.

The answer is simple; what you're suggesting would make sense, and we all know that in today's world common sense is not all that common anymore.

Amen to that!! Factor in an increasing amount of laziness due to things being so easy to do these days and I fear for our young ones/the Next Generation.

I totally agree - a bit of effort has never hurt anyone.

There are zillions of people who read newspapers online. Some of those zillions are not royal family oriented and at this early stage of Wills and Kate becoming someone else. I don't see a problem with "Dutchess of Cambridge (formerly or neé Kate Middleton). It's merely a point of reference for readers.

That's great for you, but it's not right and it's nothing but lazy journalism.

If I let that go into a report back in Broadcast Journalism School, not only would I have gotten an automatic D, but would have also had to rewrite the story before going to air *and* give a "donation" to the Boo Boo Jar we had. That, considering it would be a "Biggie Boo Boo", would have been a Five Dollar "Donation".

I get just as ticked off when I see HRH Camilla Parker-Bowles The Duchess of Cornwall or HRH Sophie Rhys-Jones The Countess of Wessex. It's one of those things Journalists *should* know better about. And after the last year and a half, if people can't figure out who HRH Catherine Duchess of Cambridge is when reading an article about Prince William and/or TRF, then I would be wondering what rock they've been under for that period of time.

Princes William and Harry played against each other later in pouring rain. William's Tusk Trust beats Sentebale, Harry's team at polo cup.

Is it just me, does everyone look a little uncomfortable in those pictures? William looks like he'd rather be off camera (not unusual, since he's not attention/photo op hungry).

It was apparently pouring down rain and rather windy for the entire match. So maybe the discomfort is in that.

Makes perfect sense! Being out in wet attire is not exactly ideal for any situation, let alone for photographs.

He does indeed. He has a very regal presence when riding, especially during Trooping the Colour.

I didn´t know where to post it,here´s an article from hello magazine-they wrote about how much money the wedding exhibition raised for charity (there are also nice pictures!):

"The gown has now no doubt secured the royal seal of approval after raising an estimated £10 million.Money raised from the exhibit will go to a charity set up by her and Prince William"

Kate Middleton takes on first royal patronage - The Times of India

"We believe that it will provide a unique opportunity for us to use our privileged position to make a real difference in the future to many areas of charitable work," the Daily Express quoted Prince William as saying.

"We feel passionately that, working closely together with those who contribute to our foundation, we can help to make a long-lasting and tangible difference," he added.
