Honestly, he said that. So I guess it's up to oneself if one is able to recognize Ms. Middleton or not...

That's very true Jo and I think that what we have to be honest about is - we only read what we want to read. Nobody holds a gun to my head and says, "You will read that Hello article about Lulu's new fitted kitchen or I'll blow your brains out" do they? No, I read it because I've bought it to read it. So, the media may be put out there and saturated with Kate Middleton but it doesn't mean I've got to look at it.

I was referring to the BRF not Kate Middleton who is not a member of the BRF. And I said that if William marries her we will not hear very much from her anyway. She doesn't have that spark that Diana had.

Now I have to confess I don't get you at all. Does the above quote mean you think that the American media is already reporting too much about the BRF? Then why do you watch these programmes? I'm often following CNN during days when an event occurs that interests me and I've yet to see any kind of coverage of the British RF. So where do you find this obviously intrusive amount of media coverage on them?

Well, IMHO a lot of Britons are quite glad about that fact. Who wants another Royal with that kind of spark that Diana possessed? {off-topic comment deleted - Elspeth}

I have no expectations of Kate because no one knows if she will marry William or not. I think for the moment she is entitled to do what she wants.

I personally feel she will make a good wife for William (if they marry). She seems level headed and smart.

I think whatever she does she will do it splendidly and with the grace and ease that is required of a princess. I'm excited to see what's going to happen in the coming months.

he didn't propose to her so you have nothing to worry about.

if william marries her we may not hear from her but we'll definitely hear about her for a very long time to come...she'll be the next royal celebrity...until something fresh comes along. i agree she doesn't have diana's spark and probably won't have diana's staying power in the media.

Mmmm.... not everyone thought of it as a nice spark, as for staying power in the media, I would think she would be gratefull for not having that!
