Fortunately for Kate, there is a family business, and this was an option which allowed her to keep a bit of privacy. I think it was a discreet solution.

Of course, many people work in family businesses - it's nothing out of the ordinary, and I doubt most of them have to put up with such sneers and accusations.
The people that I know and that work in their parents companies, are definetly not workshy :) Most of the companies have a similar size to the one that Kates parents own :) And they would not be able to have a lazy life in the company, as the companies are not that big as it would go unnotices :)

In the old days, a woman was expected to be "pure" as one of the qualifications required, if you would prefer this term, to be considered a suitable wife (by royalty standards). Kate had a boyfriend before William right? It's not an unreasonable conclusion, and if I'm wrong, which I may very well be, it does not really matter. She is a safe bet is my overall point.

I know, they were expected to be pure.
All I have an issue with is you talking about her virginity in a public forum, and stating that she has lost it. If you don't know for truth, don't state it as fact.

I'm curious whether or not they will announce the wedding dress designer do they usually do that?

I think we won't or are at least not supposed to know until April 29th. I think Catherine's wedding dress is close to being a state secret

The choice of the Emanuels was announced publicly in mid-March 1981.

I doubt very sincerely she'd use the same designer who made Diana's dress. I mean, she is not Diana. She will never be Diana. She is not being groomed to be Diana. She is her. If they both turn this wedding into an occasion to bring her up at every possible instance, I'm going to be annoyed, to be frank. She's dead, and that's not meant to be rude or insulting, but merely as a statement of fact. Life is for the living, and this is a wedding, not a funeral.

I thought I had read here someone saying they thought she'd use Emanuel's as her dress designer, like Diana did in 1981.

No.

Someone suggested that we might not know who designed Kate's dress until the wedding day. And Wbenson mentioned that it was announced that the Emmanuels were designing Diana's dress in mid March of 1981.

I think we will know who is the designer is prior to the wedding...the press will show pics of Kate doing fittings...we just wont see the dress until the 29th.

I don't think we should take every article that appears about this wedding at face value. The tabloids don't know.

They just picked the wedding location....who knows if they made up the guest list yet. I am sure the Queen, the government officials, Prince Charles, William and Katherine have a list of people they want to invite. I am sure the list will go thru several revisions before the announcements go out.

Would editors like Ingrid Seward and royal reporters like Judy Wade be invited to the wedding?

Apparently Diana's dress has never been washed since '81.

Ew I'm slightly creeped out that it's never been washed but when I think about it, if it was me I probably wouldn't have washed it either. Is it really turned sorta yellowish? I just thought it may also be the lighting idk I'm not an expert on wedding dresses and how they do as they age.

Using the same designer that Diana did, if this is the case, does not mean she is trying to be Diana...It would be just a matter of coincidence in personal style. I would love she did, though, ´cause Emanuel dresses are beautiful and anybody would look like a princess in one of them...
