I am not sure if Kate Nichols likes or dislikes the royals...it looks like her main focus is to stir up dirt. And it doesn't matter if its true or not....the Palace is only going to respond to the most outlandish comments.

Oh dear, let's just hope this never happens.

I agree with you. It would be foolish for any girl to try to become pregnant in order to force the prince to marry her. I think it would backfire on her and it would constantly be a shadow over her head. She would never know if he married her because he had to or if he really did want to. Not to mention the press would always bring it up.

Sincerely (hypothetically speaking) if Chelsy become pregnant (of Harry), they resolve not to marry, I think she should raised this child in South Africa or a country like Switzerland. Because honestly if she gets pregnant and they do not marry, I would be so sorry for their child be raised in England to the delight of the tabloids!
The tabloids, being as they are, would have a field day either way. And they would more than likely find out even if Chelsy or whoever raised the child elsewhere. The tabloids are not known for their understanding and kindness so I'm sure they make fodder out of situation and overdramatize it. They would definately get lots of stories out of it.

If they found out about the pregnancy early enough (and these days you can find out in a few weeks) they would probably quickly put together a nice royal wedding and televise it like usual and not say anything about the pregnancy until after the wedding so that it doesn't mar the ceremony. As Iluvbertie said these events are mostly planned out ahead of time so it wouldn't be difficult to do. I'm not sure if many royalty would be able to come on short notice. They would need to have the wedding within 3-4 months before the bride started showing her bump.

I didn't realize the Queen had to approve Diana's dress. I suppose it makes sense. Afterall it would be an awful thing on the day of the wedding for the bride to walk down the aisle in a peacock looking dress or some other horrid creation to the astonishment of the guests and embarrassment to the royal family. However, I would think the Queen would want to look at the drawings of the dress in the beginning. Otherwise if they finished it and the Queen thought it was too awful for words then they'd have to start all over.
On the other hand, how strict would the queen be? It is a matter of personal taste/style isn't it? Or perhaps she would allow the bride to wear whatever she wanted, within reason.

I'm sure the queen would be OK with whatever the bride chooses so long as it's within reason and not some rainbow colored monstrosity of a dress that will cause her and the whole church to faint due to the lack of taste.

William got the ring. I read an article in the Mirror at the time of her death (take it for what it's worth) that Charles told the two boys to take anything of hers they wanted and William took the ring. So it is presumably, still in his possession. Should he become engaged to Kate, I doubt he'd use that exact same ring, but he might have the stones taken out and put into a new setting, which I think would not only be beautiful, but a nice tribute to his mother.

I agree Zonk. It's rare for the palace to make any responses to what's being put in the press. The last time they had to make a statement is when the Middleton's were suing that photographer for taking pics of Kate playing tennis. They were trying to link the Royal's to the situation and the palace flat out denied any involvement with the situation.

I think Katie Nicholls is just frustrated at not having any real info. on the royals.

How long is a normal engagement, 6 months or 8 months? I don't remember how Charles and Diana's was?

Some would say Diana's dress was a monstrosity.

Charles and Diana, Andrew and Sarah both announced their engagments in February, if my fading memory serves correctly and they married in July so about 6 months from engagement to ceremony.

Very interesting points made in earlier comments about the famous RING. If William does have it, I also really doubt whether it would be just passed onto Kate. In it's present state it is too soon and only invokes memories of a bad marriage, not a good sign. However as stated, it might be an idea to have the stones re-set into another style, though quite what you could do with a big sapphire and surrounding diamonds, I don't know, other than have it the shape it already is. I suppose we will all find out soon enough.

The ring could be re-set into a necklace or bracelet. For either of the future wives of the boys.
As for the "suppose we will all find out soon enough" don't think either boy has plans of settling down, let alone re-setting there mothers engagement ring.

I thought the same about the resetting of the ring, maybe a necklace for his future daughter

... or perhaps just leaving it as it is as a memento of their mother. They both have the resources to buy as many necklaces as they want for the current and future women in their lives!

That's also a possibility, but I don't think that it will be the future engagement ring for P.W's fiancee

I would hate for it to be locked away in some vault never to be seen again.
I like the idea of giving it to a future daughter. I think Diana would've liked that. However it should be kept in the main line of the family as it has too much historical significance to end up in a future granddaughter's family. Wasn't there a stipulation that even jewels given to Diana had to return to the Crown upon her death?

The discussion of Diana's wedding dress has been moved to the wedding thread.

I wouldn't have a problem with William's wife wearing Diana's engagement ring but I agree it should be reset as a necklace or bracelet, not worn as a ring. And she should probably wait awhile before wearing it to avoid criticisms.

Was Harry given any substantial jewelry pieces from Diana's collection?

When Harry & William get married the wedding will take place in London, regardless of anything?

If they marry already have official titles (eg Prince of blablabla, Duke of blablabla) this will influence the location (city and maybe even church, etc.) where the wedding will take place?
