Add me to the "me, too" list.

I met my husband when I was 24 and he was 31, and we're still together 29 years later.

We were both studying part-time, but we were working full time and though I was only 24 I guess our situation is a bit different from the "met while still at school or university" category.

I am confused.
Don't be, it is a rather old fashioned attitude that everyone is pleased to meet a member of the royal family and therefore when greeting a royal, they have no need to state the obvious. There is no difference between pleased to meet you and nice to meet you, the same 'rules' apply.

I can't understand the fuss, it's not as if she said 'Hey dude, how's it hangin' or something like that!

I can't understand the fuss either. I know it's not the "proper form" greeting, but I don't see a serious problem with telling HM that's you're pleased to meet her if indeed you are. I'm sure she is still pleased to know people are pleased to meet her. Frankly I think that saying, "How do you do?" is a bit silly.

The 'people' who are commenting do seem to be working from the money making 'etiquette' books, written by an etiquette 'expert' who most likely walked on the same street as a royal or aristocrat, 25 years ago.

Hoping you don't mind me jumping into your conversation. I met my husband when i was 17. We dated for almost eight years and been happily married almost 14 years. We were both in University and both working part time. So I guess we been together for 22 years... Still going strong.... Has nothing to do with being too young. ITs a maturity and trust.....and a few things as well....

Not to sound like Gandalf or anything but my instinct says Kate has some part yet to play in the future. I wouldn't rule her out completely. who knows she might be Williams Camilla for all we know.

If history is to repeat itself she will become Harry's wife and they will reign together.

I don't think Kate is really Harry's type.... Besides, that bloke seems head over heels in love with Chelsy, practically worships her....

P.S. History does not actually repeat itself, not entirely, ever. Context never repeats. Isolated things repeat, but the context is always different, unique.

I rather hope not. I don't want to see Kate consigned to the role of William's "confidante" and the "other woman" in his marriage. I hope that she finds someone wonderful who makes her the happiest woman in the world, who encourages her and supports her and with whom she has an extremely fulfilling professional and family life for the rest of her days.

I certainly hope not. She deserves better than that.

And to be honest, in this day and age, If that ever were the case I think the monarchy would find itself in a most fragile position. William having a relationship outside of wedlock would be, I think, a most dangerous move for the institution.

Kate has already tasted the bitter media pill of association with royalty. The poor girl deserves some peace after the constant hounding. As for William, he shouldn't be forced into marriage if he is not ready, but on the other hand, it is high time that he start acting like the second in line to the throne and ceases his high profile galavanting about and random groping of young women.

Love how Kate's loosened up since the breakup - she looks so much more natural in front of the camera - because who cares how she acts now! She doesn't have to be accountable to the royal family. I always liked her, but if its not meant to be...

I think Kate is a really clever girl. Just look at how she has stolen Prince William the show after the break-up. All we have seen of him is getting totally drunk last weekend, allegedly burning 11K on money on drinks, while Kate carefully made sure she was seen in public smiling, looking stunning, controlled, mature, almost as if she wants to demonstrate that it is indeed his loss, not hers. She even had the nerve to go to the nightclub in which William only six days ago shouted "I'm free" and danced with William's buddy Guy.

I would really love be able to read mindes just once - only to find out if William has already had some second thoughts whether or not dumping Kate was a brilliant move. Being single as an officer living in barracks might have some appeal in theory, but once you really face the music and have to take a lone trip to the local cinema instead of being able to spend quality time with the girl that really cares for you, it may well be some kind of reality shock.

Quite frankly, the whole thing has turned out to be a media disaster for the Royal Family and William's inner circle of polo lads despite all the spin doctors in the background. It could not have been worse, the whole snobbery discussion has done considerable damage and most likely alienated quite a few people.

It is a bit like Manchester vs. Roma the other week: Middleton 7, Wales 1.

Lightbulb and....

Honestly, who cares what the kid does, it is no business of mine who he dates, does, flings, weds, or any of that, should he do any of that. He would never do anything to upset his Dad or Grandparents. So I will just wait watch and be entertained. I just hope he goes for someone who can actually be called beautiful, and balanced. Those boys have really disapointed me with their decisions, the females they have "hooked up" with or possibly "shagged" are truly "ill gaited" and "badly conformed", comon boys, date Asians.
