Fourth cousins creepy CasiraghiTrio? We've had Royals marry first and second cousins for years. If Kate is out of the picture then it's obvious that a commoner of that age can't take the pressure and a Royal girl is required. Theodora is perfect and at least we know she'll be able to handle the pressure.

I was really shocked to hear this. I personally think that the press was becoming too much. I think Kate would have married William now but he wasn't ready. They should release a statement at least. Kate appears to have been abandoned

But she's his cousin BeatrixFan, you don't find it atleast a little gross. But then agian her majesty and prince phillip are also distant cousins and also Charles and Diana.

I never felt 100% that Kate and William would be together forever, William is far too young to be getting married. I would like him to follow the examples of Frederik, Willem-Alexander, Felipe etc and live a little, have their army/navy careers and then settle down.

I must say that when William and Kate attended the races last month it was the first time I saw Kate in a Royal role.

I hated the build up of Kate, it was unfair, the press hardly made her a Princess but the future Queen, she was too young to think so far ahead. Just like Koo Stark si always known as 'Andrews Ex', I thought that would be unfair for Kate to be 'Willams Ex'.

This could be a blip, many relationships have them but I just hope Kate can go on and live a good, happy life and William the same thing.

Exactly. The Queen and Prince Philip are cousins. So are Charles and Camilla. So are alot of European Royals. It's not gross, it's perfectly normal and natural and we'll be better for it.

He's too young to get married and needs to develop more life experience and character. He's likely to be King in the next 20 years and his marriage is a huge commitment for anyone.
She's not appropriate to bear heirs and become a future queen? Really? What's wrong with her? I don't care whether they marry or not, but I always find it incredible when someone makes a comment like this. I don't see anything wrong with this young woman.

marrying a distant cousin isn't uncommon in the closely knit circles of royalty/aristocracy(sp?).

Marrying a cousin may not be uncommon but I do think its unrealistic for Prince William especially in this day and age. I say more power to him in whomever he choses and hopefully he does not feel he needs to succumb to the pressures of the public.

Remember that we have Preferred Wives For William and Harry thread to discuss Prince William's possible and preferred wives.

Is it possible that this is simply a ruse to get the media away from Kate Middleton? I guess, time will tell whether they will get back together again.

As romantic as many people seem to be, the fact is marrying a commoner has many potential pitfalls for William. He is a future King with a lifetime of duty ahead of him. His wife will have to bear heirs, carry out a heavy commitment of public duties and royal obligations, and be comfortable with not having her husband around much. A marriage to someone in William's position is essentially a sacrifice for the country.

Kate was an independent, well-educated woman with an active career. She is not a member of the aristocracy and does not understand the norms and unspoken ways of the monarchy. She is not accustomed to doing her duty without question. These are all qualities that are necessary to be a successful consort.

Bloodlines do matter when marrying a future King. No matter how much people say he can marry a commoner, the royal line must continue.

I'm still holding out that this is not true. If it is, it's really sad. :(

When I first read the news on the Daily Mail I wasn't sure whether or not to believe it untill I saw that all the major news outlets were covering it. Althought I have always thought that Prince William wouldn't marry his first serious girfriend, I am completely shocked by their breakup. It just goes to show that all the media speculation should be taken with a grain of salt.

I agree with you. There is more to it than her being just a good, educated girl. Being a monarchy is not easily learned, its almost as if one has to be brought up that way to understand and know how to deal with the life that comes with it.

I don't think this is true at all. The Sun just looks to sell papers and for them, anything goes. I really don't belive them. And as someone already mentioned all the other newspapers and websites are quoting the Sun, so there really isn't any independent search into the story. William and Kate seem much smarter than to have friends that would leak such private information--the very next day. I just don't find the sources or the story credible.
