i'm not raining on your parade but just a couple of things:
1) is The People a reliable source of info?

2) at one point the article says that the cottage was left to william by the QM and at another point they say it was left to charles. do they mean that the entire estate was left to charles or just the cottage and if so they need to proof their articles before they go to print.

Not the best, no! Although, just wait: Hola! likes to use Dean Rousewell as an 'authority' of sorts, so I'll bet they will come out with this story soon.

Actually, it says at the beginning that the house, Tam-na-Gar or something, is William's on the edge of Balmoral estate. Then later, it says that this house is on the Birkhall estate, which was left to Charles by the Queen Mum.
About this, it looks like they got right. They say Birkhall belongs to Charles, left to him by the Queen Mum, and the house William uses is on the Birkhall property. As Birkhall is one the edge of Balmoral (or adjacent to it) it seems like they did get this part fairly correct. I sometimes am confused about how Birkhall is situated too, but I think they described it rather accurately.

Pictures from the Polo match can be seen in Prince William Current Events thread.

You're right, there would have been pictures. The paparazzi was stalking Kate and sister Pippa just the day before in King's Road, London, where they were doing some shopping. If they were diligent enough to stalk her doing some shopping, they certainly wouldn't miss the chance to photograph her at Will's polo match. Poor Kate. They are lying in wait some days outside her flat again. If Will and Kate meant to buy some time and space by making up the 'break up' story, it failed miserably.

I don't think they are hiding their relationship because I don't believe they are back together in any real way, so there is really nothing to hide or be low-key about.

This isn't news. Even after they broke up, ( although I believe that NOTW article that claimed it was a four day breakup is closer to the truth. ) they were saying William and Kate would go to her relative's wedding and in August they would be a his cottage on the Birkhall estate.

People.com never waits for proof before going to print! I see it as speculating on little evidence. That doesn't mean that they're not back together - I just don't see the evidence. It may be that William is asking an old girlfriend to cover for him while he dates someone new. Charles was in the habit of doing that.

I will take this a step further and say that this People article has no evidence to speak of. They say the couple "might" go to Tam-na-Ghar, that Wills "might" invite Kate there, etc. Maybe he will maybe he won't, but either way, there is no way, no how Dean Rousewell will know it. The friend(s) to whom Wills confides such knowledge would never tell Rousewell, that much is for sure.

i storngly doubt wills would use kate as a cover up, and that she would agree to that. I have reason to think that they're back together or trying to as such speculation didn't start untill recently. Plus as i said many times before...there were lots of hints that they're back on.

as for the article, i never said it was news or 100% true. Thought i really want them back together i won't star beliveing just everything.

well guess we'll just have 5 more days to see.

I partly agree with you on this. Yet, see a possibility of them carrying out their relationship covertly.

I agree with you with this because of the media attention their relationship generates.

It's strange that William and Kate never seem to go anywhere alone. I adore William and think he'll make an excellent King down the road, but I can't help but feel that there's something....strange about his relationship with Kate.

Mags and royal watchers have always gone on about how William is the smarter and more sensitive Prince, but he looks like an absolute cad compared to Harry in the romantic department. I know members of the public school set tend to travel in packs, but I'm getting a little bit sick of the way you hardly ever see a picture of William and Kate on their own. Instead, it's always William, Kate, Guy Pelly (always, always Guy Pelly), Tom so-and-so, Fred what's-his-face, and about ten other dudes, all sitting around a big table with weird smiles on their faces. Hmmmph.

i think it's pretty obvious thst wills is more like the RF..not showing feeling in public though i have to admitt it annoys me too that he is never alone with Kate

As for the rest of us who are desperatly hoping they're back together here's another event to look forward to Send a gift to brittle bones society for my 60th, says Camilla | the Daily Mail though i doubt the girls would atted the party or the news even beong true

I like this post a lot. It expresses feelings I've had off and on about Wills for a long time. I completely understand where you are coming from. But like Dodo implied, I think it's just the simple truth that William can never be like Harry as a boyfriend, not in front of cameras anyway. Harry takes the attitude, "Hey, they're going to take pictures, so I am going to enjoy my time with Chelsy." William is more like, "They're going to take pictures? Well, not of me! I'm going to hide, with Kate, and I'll come out of hiding when I'm ready!" Harry plays the game, but William makes his own terms in the game, if that makes any sense.

I don't think it is that strange that we never see pictures of Wiliam and Kate alone together. I think when William and Kate do things alone together, it is actually alone together. Not alone together with how many paparazzi following.

Just because William prefers to hang out in groups with his girlfriend doesn't mean he's a cad. I suspect the type of people he really values and cherishes are friends or buddies and not necessarily a super high-maintenance fairytale princess type of girl. So his girlfriends would be more the buddy type of girlfriend rather than the super romantic beauty queen type of girl that has to have lots of alone time with her man. Not every girl is into the romantic kind of world where only she and her beloved exist. Both his girlfriends before, Jessica Craig and Kate Middleton seem to fall into the category of stalwart friend so it looked like William's lifestyle fit either of them.

Now if he could decide who he wants.

we may never see pictures of william and catherine alone together which i think is nice. it's a shame that we feel we need to see pictures of celebrities doing absolutely everything. what would be interesting or newsworthy of a photo of two of them walking down the street?

But whyever not? It IS from the Daily Mail, you know. That bastion of low-key, balanced, and truthful reporting...
