In your opinion presumably, to others she had none, in the same way that not everyone likes or will like Catherine.

BeatrixFan-When did you become a Kate fan? I am very happy that you have.

I think William has pick a winner with Kate. She will go the long hall with him because they love each other.

You're right on the matter of difference of opinions.

There's a big thread about it called "Has Your Opinion of Kate Changed?". You can read about my conversion to the Kate camp there!

I was very surprised when I saw these two photos. It is one of the worst photos I've ever seen of Diana. Not a hint of charisma, and I don't even think this one was staged. It's just the sullen, bored, stare...with head tilt. Kate, OTOH, looks vibrant and stylish and much more interesting, IMO.

Yeah, in this particular picture Kate looked adequate. I'll just leave it at that.

So I guess this thread is starting to become comparisons between Diana and Kate. Instead on has your opinion of Kate changed.

No, this thread isn't about Diana. If it starts veering too far down that particular road, the moderators will be along with our pruning shears.

No my opinion of her has not changed. I have liked her from day one.

PS: it really annoys me when people say that serious people have no personalities and are boring... no we aren't! we just aren't exactly the same as you! just because a person is serious doesn't mean they don't have a personality or interests, it just means they don't shout about it! :)

I have no opinion of Catherine myself I only hope that if they do marry they will be very happy. It seems to me William is being very wise to take his time rather than marrying in haste and hopefully no-one in the Royal Family will make him marry by a certain age.

The one thing that disturbs me the most is that the press seems to have not learned a thing from making Princess Diana's life miserable. I know that many of you on here think she was part of the problem and maybe she was but that still hounded her and they are now hounding this poor girl. Have they not learned anything?

I have never paid much attention to Kate or the British Royal family but from what I have seen lately of Kate, I think her addition to the family (if it happens) will revitalise the monarchy. I am impressed with the way she carries herself.

When did being happy become equated with being an idiot? I guess Maxima must be an idiot then seeing as she smiles so much........

As for Kate, she's often grumpy looking in her photos and her body language sometimes reads arrogant to me.

I am sure that beautiful and gracious as she is, Maxima would have trouble smiling if she was treated in the same way!

I don't believe that Sister Morphine was suggesting for a moment that Maxima is an idiot, but, there are some people who do look like idiots constantly keeping a false smile on their face.

Catherine may looked harassed in the photo's the press choose to use, but when did it become grumpy and arrogant to walk properly?

Here is a link to an article from the Guardian/Observer dealing with opinions from various PR experts as to how Catherine Middleton should handle press interest in her life. I think it's very interesting to read these and I agree with so many of them.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/monarchy/s...989793,00.html

Some excerpts:
Quote:
She shouldn't do anything yet. ...she should make it clear she isn't going to step into Diana's shoes.
Quote:
No interviews at all - not even one, or it's open season.
Quote:
She should choose her charitable activities and the organisations she gets involved with carefully, and be the antithesis of what Diana was.
Quote:
She can't engage with the media - nor should she. But she seems to have a very nice personality that comes across regardless. We've seen from Princess Diana that trying to manipulate the media is not a very clever thing to do.
Quote:
She shouldn't tell anyone anything, and should trust no one.

my opinion on kate has changed but for worse.. I first saw her as a normal girl.. intelligent.. pretty.. professional.. with a low-key lifestyle.. an authentic "people's princess".. but now she has a rather "suspecious" job.. I think she does something with the fashion industry or sometyhing like that.. she seems to like the paparazzi attention and loves to be in the spotlight.. all her life depens on willam's.. she is a gold-digger (pushed by her mother carole).. and she definately loves will's crown rather than himself.. she is very confied that she will marry willam and that's why she doesn't even bother to work hard or do something productive of her time..

Catherine is the daughter of two people who have a business which is connected to the world of fashion. She has an academic degree which gives her the background to work in fashion herself. We know she leaves her flat in the morning and comes home in the evening. Sometimes she goes out with her boyfriend at night. There is not much more to know about her. Except that she was not asked if she wanted to be in the spotlight - that came with the person of her boyfriend. Where do you get the idea from that she "loves the crown more than William"?

Kate is gorgeous...she's becoming one of my favorite young royals! She's a young spirit and that's what the Brits are needing between their royal family :-)

I can't see any indication from those birthday photos that she was loving every minute of having those cameras rammed into her face.

Also, let me put on my moderator hat and remind you that comments such as "she is a gold digger" and "she loves Will's crown rather than himself" and "she doesn't work too hard" are unsupported and malicious pieces of speculation and are against our rules. If you have some sort of backup for these opinions, such as documentation that her supervisors at work are complaining about her or that she's been telling people how much more she likes William's status than the man himself, by all means feel free to share. If not, then those opinions are worthless.
