Whats funny is that the bodyguard looks more worried than Mary!!!! Thumbs up from me , i think she is laughing at the media storm!!! and why shouldn't a mum, royal or not , go and do a nappy run? Mary wasn't concerned obviously and i think she would laugh to see how much it has got everyone on here up in arms!!! i wish i looked that good on a nappy run!!!

Make-up on? We have seen many pictures of Mary without any make-up on. What in the world does that matter. Maybe they were going out with the children after she had the planned, high profile, publicity photo session of buying nappies for her children. I can just see Mary telling Isabella Go, Bella Go! Use up those nappies so Mommy can go out and get her picture taken. I do not know why we let the DoM get us into these discussions in the first place. Who cares what Mary does as long as she good at being a Princess. She does an A++++ job of that.

BTW how can you miss the press they are like a bunch of vultures. They even have the nerve to go knock on the door of her sister's house. Thank goodness she did not answer the door. I am sure it would have made front page news around the world.

I really think that the lousiest thing of all were those mutant press humans [?] that knocked on Mary's sister's door. At least her sister was polite to them -- God knows what I would have said as the were not invited to be on her property in the first place. Quite pushy and low class.

With the time change & flights she & her family/party endured, it's possible she was the only one awake at the time. Or possibly the kids went out while she was at the shop & she was the decoy. There are many possible thoughts on this.

I am not judging Mary's need to buy nappies...But I do think it is a little fishy...Firstly, her sisters, Jane and Patricia, have known of her visit for months, couldn't they have been stocking up on supplies for their sister Mary and her children's visit...which would include nappies for Christian and Isabella...and secondly, her sister Jane works in a chemist, she is a pharmacist...See, she has access to things like nappies way in advance...I think her sisters could have helped her out by having things like nappies ready, so why the need for Mary to venture out and purchase these things? Just to be seen and be visible and get the photo ops out of the way before the real private holiday begins, I suppose?

I think Mary just wanted to show off her new sunglasses, those Prada ones are cool, yes, she is a slave to fashion

That is some subtle media code!

But hey, I'm no Princess but, unlike Mary, I wouldn't be caught dead beyond the front gate without a little camoflage.

B****r the camera's! What about the neighbours?

So your sister eventually went out and bought diapers for herself. Just like any normal person. Why should her sisters have to do that sort of thing. When we have people come to visit with children I try to buy most things that they will need, but generally I leave the food and toiletry items to them as they might have preferences.

She bought nappies. NO BIG DEAL. It's not fishy, and I seriously doubt it was any kind of publicity stunt. I am sure that the DRF can come up with better ones if they feel there is a need.

I really think this entire things is getting out of hand. Who cares what she purchased. Maybe it was something altogether different and she didn't want the world to know. The Pampers were a cover. No matter what she does or where she goes, someone will question the action.

I think it was me who brought up the smile - all I meant by it was simply that while she may not like it, she hardly seems miserable. Really what you said in the 2nd sentance above. Sorry I didnt express myself very well.

I give her credit for smiling plus getting it over with and not behaving like P W-A did in New Zealand when he told the camera men to get lost he was on vacation.
Yes he managed to achieve bad press for that one here (NZ) where noone has a clue who he is, for that one!

I am sure that if we had seen someone buying diapers headed back to her Mary's sisters house, her detractors would quickly claim that Mary is just too "snobby" to buy diapers for her children.
There is no way she could have won in this situation, there really isnt.

I'm devestated!!

Here I am applying makeup before I leave the house and not a single pap in sight! I'm here, I'm ready...alas, am I to be seized upon by no media contingent??? I've been expecting them for weeks now...

No no, I'M what you'd call a slave to fashion. Even when I'm away from work, I'm still doing something in relation to work. That's a 'slave to fashion'.

And you truly think Mary's "bad"? Check out my wardrobe, and then you will I'm sure, gladely retract the above statement...

No, I don't minde spending my tax money on TRF. The suitcase/nappi debate is just a absolute non-issue.
