I'm certain she is not that allergic. IMTS, she goes to the polo regularly with William so I'm sure a mild antihistamine would keep it in check.

From that article:

I returned from the cathedral to the palace in the glass coach that Diana had arrived in, trotting down the Mall in a horse-drawn coach — an experience only slightly ruined by the tears of fellow bridesmaid six-year-old Catherine Cameron, who turned out to be allergic to horses."

So people allergic to horses can have problems on riding in the glass coach... as it happened at Diana's wedding with this little bridesmaid.

Yeah she is, and it's been noted quite a lot that she is marrying into the wrong family.
I don't intend at all for that sentence to come out in an attacking way, i've just re-read it and its not how I mean it to come across.

I take it as meaning that she is marrying into the wrong family because they have very much to do with horses and she is supposedly allergic to them.
She should rather seek a family who collects stamps or whatever else

I see the remark in a funny light.

Yeah it is meant in that way.
However Diana hadn't ridden a horse since she fell off when she was a child. She found Balmoral incredible boring, and hated the site of hunting. Kate seemingly likes Balmoral, and she doesn't mind hunting. I suppose she'll have to get used to the horses.

I took it as funny too, it's hard to convey tone when it's written :)

I'm allergic to; horses, cats, ... a lot of animals and things ..but with a "normal" antihistaminicum I have no problems whatsoever - I event went riding for some years .. allways with medication .. otherwise bad asthma.

But I'm not sure if it works the same with everybody.

I must work well enough for Kate, otherwise she wouldn't accompany Wills to his polo games.

In regards to horses (as it is with any allergy) I am sure how it differs on how it affects people. Also, Kate does accompany William to polo games, but I have never seen pics of her at a game within close proximity (standing next to) a horse.

Or maybe her father...you know the gentleman escorting her to the chapel in the morning...has an issue with horses...allergy perhaps....and that's why she chose to take a car instead...just a thought...

Even if Kate is deathly allergic to horses there are modern medicines that can help with that. There are doctors that specialize in allergies so the horse situation shouldn't be a problem.

Are we sure Kate has a real, physical, allergy to horses? As I recall, she told Kathy Lette, "I'm allergic to horses", in response to Lette asking her why she didn't play polo. Is there any other source for this fact? It could well be that she meant allergic in a metaphorical sense, as in she doesn't feel comfortable around them. Or maybe she was trying to brush Lette off politely, not wanting to discuss the matter with her but not wanting to be rude.

Re: The Queen asking Prince William: "At what point are you going to stop being trendy and start being realistic?"

After reading (In Royalty Nu - quoting The Independent) that Prince Charles wants a sustainable royal wedding. "The young couple, he proposed, should walk the last 100 metres to the palace, with distinguished world leaders arriving in community buses powered by bio-fuel. At the event itself, the Bushman's Prayer would be read from the pulpit while the vows would be accompanied by an aboriginal dreamsong, a one-note hum in which wedding guests would connect to their sacred ancestors." A senior royal aide tried without success to tone down the idea of a sustainable royal wedding but admitted defeat when Charles began talking about "the Jungian belief that modern man needs to get in touch with his two million-year-old self."

Perhaps the Queen should ask Prince Charles: "At what point are you going to stop being a Loon and start being realistic?"

Actually she has found one of them and is marrying into a family with one of the best stamp collections in the world - started by George V and maintained ever since.

Oh, I didn't know that. Wrong example then, just imagine...

Then she should look for someone who comes from a family of tea-bag or cigar bands collectors - any other collection than stamps and far away from horses .
