Of course, I wish both of them a stable relationship as it is only the two of them who know why they are together.
Perhaps it is more that she was raised in such a way that she does not air her dirty laundry in public, and she is circumspect about her activities. It's a pity when we've been so jaded by the horrible manners and lack of class from celebrities that we assume that is normal, and when someone is going about their life without scandal, it's all of a sudden that they are trying to be Mr/MRs Perfect, and of course they must be hiding something.

Perhaps Ms Middleton just has more class and graciousness about her and was raised right. Frankly, I see nothing wrong with the way she behaves, and am glad to see someone in the media that is not drunk, high on something, stealing, sleeping around, or god knows what else.

This should be the norm. I was raised this way, and I imagine alot of other people were as well. We've just become so imbued with a sense of "we have to know everything about everyone" that if there is nothing to know, then we automatically assume worse.

It's sad.

What are "joddies"?

Catherine might just like black or drak colours.

Some of the Royals who people remember with great affection were "boring." George VI was boring, as were his parents. The Queen is kind of boring in a way--always doing things the same way year after year; but people think of her as reassuring, not boring.

What he like in her?
Hmmm... Maybe her eyes, maybe her body (legs, hands, ears), maby her hair or smile, maybe her sense or sensibility, maybe something in her soul what we can't see... Who knows what does Wills like about her? Maybe private she is a little bit different as we se her on TV, press? As her official image.
We can only say maybe and try to guess because we really don't know her.

I think Kate is extremely pretty and not that looks are everything but I've heard she's quite intelligent and has a great sense of humor. She always seems to - at least publically - carry herself with class and grace. These are important attributes for anyone, not just a Prince.

See, I think Kate has a lot of lovely outward characteristics including looks and demeanour, but that doesn't mean much to me because I know very little about who she is "inside"...less so than other royals because she is very private. So while I think she has many characteristics that would make her a suitable royal wife, I have no idea if she is truly a good match for William. I suppose I have doubts because especially with William's more recent behaviour with helicopters, I have doubts about whether William has any strong idea of who he is and what he wants in life. He might very well, but I see a lot more signs that all the other young royals have formed a strong identity, than I do of William.

I hope that if William marries Kate, they will mature together and become a successful royal team. I hope that William does not wake up one day at age 40 and develop a strong passion like Charles' love for Camilla or concern for the environment and realize "This is what I want out of life...and Kate isn't it." Because that would be painful for William and Kate, and for the monarchy.

So I hope William knows what he's doing.

Sorry Mermaid1962, I didn't see this until now. Joddies are Jodhpurs, which are the normal attire for riding. They used to be huge on the hip/upper leg to allow for 'spread' (imagige a key shape) and suede on the knee area, to stop chaffing. Now, due to lovely Lycra they just have the extra padding on the knee.

Jodhpurs...I should have guessed that. Mind you, I've only seen them on Mounties in dress uniforms in "real life." They sound very comfortable.

I somewhat agree. I think of for instance Camilla's hairstyle, for which she is roundly criticized for having a 70's Farrah Fawcett style. Well, I think that style flatters Camilla. She is blessed with thick, gorgeous hair and I rather like her hairstyle, even if others find it out of date. I think I've read Charles likes her hairstyle, hence she probably doesn't change it. I love Camilla's hair. Thick, healthy hair, especially for a woman of her age.

I'm sure that very many feel exactly as you do, but a lot of this is surmise, is it not?

I don't know that she's not working for her parents in their successful business; I don't know that she's comfortable to simply 'wait and see'; I don't know that there's any subtle plan to confound the press and public because of her, obvious, reticence, to oblige the gossips; and I don't really know what HRH William thinks of her and vice versa.

What I do know is that the Heir Apparent seems comfortable and happy in her company, and she with his. That's enough for me, for now.

I completely agree. Kate has something about her that none of us will never know that captured William's heart. Clearly, he adores her otherwise he would have left her behind ages ago.

Maybe they will do an engagement interview when they decide to tie the knot and he will tell a bit about why he loves her?

Very true, I forgot about that token question. Hopefully he won't say "Whatever 'in love' means" number either.

On a serious note, if they do become engaged, I'm sure the whole world will know why he adores her.

If he did that I'd start giggling and wouldn't stop till the wedding day. And probably way beyond that date!

Oh, oh,oh, Jo. Why must he say 'why' he loves her? Surely, after all of this time, it must apparent: simply, he just loves her. Few of us can quantify or qualify love, or am I mistaken?

Oh come on, most grooms have done that so far and told the world without needing to be forced why they thought their fiancee is the most fascinating woman in the world. And with that they told the world of course why they love her. Okay, it was a bit different with Charles who told the world that he was astonished Diana would have him or words of that meaning IIRC. Which on looking back was giving away quite a lot...

I just looked the video up again: BBC News Player - 1981: Charles and Diana to wed

Hmm... well, yes, Charles did definately not say hwy he loved her. In fact, looking back I've never ever seen such a strained looking couple.
