The hispanic look is explained by her father, Jorge Guillermo, who is a Havana-born Cuban exile.

William has to marry a woman who understands duty and is willing to make the tremendous sacrifice of being a future Princess of Wales and Queen Consort.

I am not convinced Kate Middleton is the right person for him to marry nor does she have the bloodlines the Establishment and Household will deem acceptable for a woman who will bear heirs.

It remains to be seen if these and other obstacles can be overcome, including the question of whether William even wants to marry her.

I'm not certain, but I thought I had read that the rule prohibits anyone who had ever been Catholic from marrying the heir, not simply someone who was Catholic at the time of marriage. As I said, however, I'm not sure.

I think you could be right about that. For the heir it is difficult for a Catholic to marry them, or anyone with Catholic connections to themselves.

I actually agree with the statement that we don't know if William really wants to marry her or not. It seems obvious that she is his first love and his first serious relationship, but whether he will actually marry her is truly the question of the day.
Even though Kate is a commoner and there are many other young women who really are more suitable for Prince William (as far as bloodlines and royal heritage are concerned) Let's be realistic: despite not having the right ‘credentials’ she really is very pretty. She's just as pretty as Juliana Guillermo, here are some pictures for comparison:

Just musing at what William thinks about everyone trying to marry him off.

Well, I don't suppose he's surprised by it. At least, I hope not.

You see, if I was the Queen, I'd sit him down with a nice list of titled eligible girls and say, "These are your options. Pick one that'll look pretty in the frock and can spend the rest of her life waving and pretending to be interested in everything and anything". Then, you marry the boy off, put the new wife in her place, cover them in jewels and honours and the dynasty is safe for another 50 years.

Sounds uncomfortably like the process that landed Charles in so much trouble with his choice of titled pretty girl.

It works if you put them in their place at the very beginning.

I think William is smart enough to make the right choice, both for love and duty, when the time comes.

Why not? probably yes, if she's suitable for the role as Queen ad Princess, and is not Roman-Catholic, I don't see problems

Technically, William can marry anyone who is not a Roman Catholic, regardless of nationality, under the Royal Marriages Act. Constitutionally, however, The Queen would have to seek the advice of the Prime Minister before giving a formal answer because he is the spare to the throne.

Politically, William would have to marry a British girl from a practical standpoint.

If religion was an issue for Will to marry, I think it would work. I think they would make it happen either way. Will is a smart man and when its time for him to pick a wife, He would choose well. We are living in the 21 century. Thing have to change and the royal family needs to change with the times. People will never judge Will like they did with his parents. Will has grown up and see more of his shares of garbage. What ever happens and if he marrys Kate or whoever. Changes will happen and they will be Postive for everyone including The future King of England.

Perhaps so...but IMHO. I just don't find her anywhere exciting (just because she's royal doesn't means she is or the best thing for William) or attractive for that matter. I'll move on with this one.
