That was not what I meant. For me, she could have had a much better position with her degree if she had ended her relationship with William shortly after university and started to really work on her career. Now she has to make up for lost times. Another girl from William's acquaintance, Arabelle Musgrave is as well only 25 and alread head of PR for Gucci. So a similar job for Catherine is at least thinkable. And I guess she would enjoy taking part in the vivid art scene of the US instead of being confronted with snobbery and media intrusion in Britain. Just my two cents...

This post is great. This is exactly what I thought. Now she won't have to waste time in a yah job, stupid Jigsaw buying, just buying time. She can use that expensive degree she has.
She is no longer living on "Palace time". It's her time now!

It's not like he pulled an Earl Spencer and tossed her out -- he decided that he couldn't marry her at this point in his life and that it was better for both of them to go their own ways. The demonising of William seen on the Daily Mail and Times sites is disturbing because it seems to imply that William was duty-bound to marry her -- and we all saw how marrying someone out of duty rather than a genuine desire leads to disaster with his parents.
Exactly i agree with you. He's being made out to be the bad one here. Well he hasn't cheated on her or anything (as far as we know). He's decided that he doesn't want to be in a long term relationship anymore - what's wrong with that? So he went out for a few drinks, it was probably to drown his sorrows and to forget about the break up.

According to the press a few of Kate's 'friends' may sell their story and if you believe the papers today, her 'friends' are saying that she felt that she was putting her life on hold for him, but who knows...

Neither is to blame, they are just two young people who decided to end it all - they will get on with their lives and meet other people. This is not a tragedy.

I think though that in the future, perhaps when Wills breaks up with someone else, then then Clarence House should release some sort of statement to dampen the inevitable media speculation.

I get the feeling from reading the papers, that the media is desperate for this relationship breakup to become bitter.

Well a bitter breakup would sell more papers!

i just want to know, What were they thinking? They knew he had a long stint in the army coming up. Even if they'd have been engaged that wouldn't have changed much.
I don't think William can be blamed for being Royal and thinking of himself first- it's the way he's been brought up.
But I do give Kate a lot of credit for standing up for herself. She has shown throughout the years that she is a young woman of extraordinary strength of character and I wish her all the best.
I guess we'll have to wait a few years to see some new tiaras, sigh!

is it really the breakup?, because William and Kate are not married. Clarence House doesn´t have official press release.

There is never a need for a press release. You do it because you want to inform the world about something or to tell your side of the story. The separation of Diana and Charles was not made in a press release but the prime minister informed parliament about it. I know of no broken Royal engagement in Britain, so can't say something about if there are rules for it.

But in a case like that, with so much public interest, it should be possible to inform the media in order to give the official side to the story and put a stop to the rumours. Clarence House informed the public after all that Camilla does not suffer from cancer. Is this not talking about her private life in order to stop negative rumours?

'How do you do' is the more acceptable term for a first meeting and Mrs M would have been advised of that, that's why I think it is bunkum! Don't forget that a lot of this is being invented by the media and by the usual 'close friends' (they were in the same club once), 'unnamed sources', (they were not included in either circle and still harbour a grudge) and the ubiquitous 'royal source' which is probably an ex employee at one of the palaces!

A few are asking 'how could he if he loved her' or saying that they were in a 'committed long term relationship', it seems to me they were not in a committed relationship and after 4/5 years just fell out of love, it happens!

All you have to do is ask yourselves why there are so many different versions about at the moment. We have the 'phone in the car park breakup', the 'Easter breakup', the meeting, etc, etc. Perhaps that is because none of them know what or when, I mean we even have Catherine announcing it on Thursday to her close unnamed friends! The picture from This London does not show a lovelorn heartbroken woman, it shows someone who is free at last!

Bravo Kate!
It is really funny just how many different angles there are on this story and just proves that we will never kow the whole truth. i wouldn't be a bit surprised if SHE was the one who called it quits!

I always figured the "unnamed source" was the reporter's pet hamster.

I agree with the people who have said that Kate has done a great job handling the break-up so far and that she seems happy to be "free" - and maybe deservedly so. Now she can actually make real plans for her career, life, etc.

Kate Middleton's thread is closed. This is the only place to post those pictures and information, regarding the break up.

The thread was closed as following the break up, Miss Middleton's connection with the Royal Family has ended and the British Forums are not the right place to post information about her.

I think this was the best for the both of them--W is way too young to get married, and K will have a great career, and marry well because of the way she's handled herself.

I felt a bit sad when I knew about this break-up, since I always saw Kate as a very decent, correct, and well mannered person. She could be a very good Queen for England, imo.
Anyway, I am sure is dealing pretty well in her new life, and I wish her the Best.

Jo...great post!

I needed a day to exam all of the evidence...and while we don't truly know the facts. I totally agree with your thoughts. It could have been handled better by William. Yes, if he thinks he is too young to get married and committ himself...then he would know better than the rest of us. Its all how you handle it. Yes, its okay to go off drinking with your buddies...but the way he is acting (at least how its being reported) you'd think he just got divorced from the Wicked Witch of the West!

In regards to the discussion of middle class station of the Middleton's...I think its just plain snobbery. I never understood why people thought she wasn't good enough for him, to be queen, to have his children. Kate/Catherine is/wasn't a mass murderer, she doesn't kick animals as she walks by them. She has shown more class in her little pinky then most of William's friends have shown by leaking (if these are true rumours) to the press. In regards to Carole Middleton, well...if she made a couple of faux pas...why wasn't she instructed on how to behave with the Queen? Its not like she talks to her everyday.

And I agree, Kate looks happy. I am sure she loved him, and although I was never excited about her as a potential bride (but I didn't hate her)...in a couple of weeks, the press will have forgotten about her..she might focus on her job (and appease those who feels she needs to justify HER degree to THEM), and hopefully in a few years marries and has a couple of children. I think she might have had a lucky escape! I wish her the best.

I feel sorry for the next girl he dates. The press will be relentess, she will have to live up to the way Kate handled herself in the press...and she has to appeal to William, Great Britain, the press and the royal family. That's a lot of people to make happy without the assurance that you yourself will end up happy.

I have been so disconected from the news lately I just read about it this afternoon in one of the New York newspapers! I could not believe it either. They look so comfortable with each other through out the years, I thought this was going to last.
On the positive side for her, maybe she has been spared of a life being scrutinized by the paparazzi and the media in general. We will never know if this was a mutual break up or if he did not want her to be served as another royal human sacrifice for the paparazzi. We will never know.
