I guess we'll find out in two weeks.

I don't know ... I'd be more apt to believe that silence and discretion were the better-matched pair. Posting information on the internet that is apparently supposed to be confidential doesn't really sound so discreet to me.

I'm wondering why someone is bothering to announce something that we'd eventually find out about anyway. If Kate and William were split up, why would they wait another two weeks to announce it?

I think we've had enough fun speculating about the identity of Karagiosis; perhaps we can get back on topic. I've removed a few posts which were pushing this diversion too far.

only someone who knows either william or catherine personally would have that kind of information and at that either william or catherine would have had to tell them that they have ended any kind of relationship - romantic or friendship (i.e. either william or catherine would have had to tell this poster otherwise it's nothing more that what we do here....speculate). if this person doesn't have a connection then taking it with that grain of salt, as was advised earlier, is a good idea. at any rate, i'm anxious to see if anything noteworthy pans out in two weeks time.

If it is true...how unfortunate for Kate.

If it were true, I think it would be unfortunate for them both. Plus, if a breakup really is in the cards, there's no way for us to know which of them initiated it.

I'm still convinced they're probably just laying low and not appearing in places with cameras. I have a feeling that they like evading the media glare (and keeping us guessing in the process).

Avoiding the cameras by missing important events such as the Princes´ farewell party when they went on the trek? Seemingly not to go to some events that Chelsea went to, unless she went in and out hidden in the boot of a car.
Time will tell for sure.

The press goes way harder on Kate than Chelsea, probably because they think Chelsea will not make it all the way. Tina Brown said that recently...

Something is brewing

Kate Middleton's 'vulnerable' mother speaks out for first time - Telegraph

Not sure it's an engagement because something tells me there is no protection given here.

^I smell a round 5 of the Kate/Catherine controversy. Won't be taking part.

She sounds whiny, not to mention rather hypocritical. She doesn't want to be a celebrity yet she speaks to Mandrake, who is the celebrity editor of the Telegraph? Kate posed for Hello, Pippa is in this week issue giving Christmas advises, James wrote for Tatler.
Not courting attention from celebrity-obssessed publications at all.

That was one of my immediate thoughts when I read the column too, Idriel!

This certainly is interesting, though I don't know exactly what it might signify - perhaps something, perhaps nothing. My question for the Brits on the board is this: I know that "Mandrake" is a sort of pseudonym for the group of reporters that write and edit this column. Are there anonymous people working for them at society events to get information, or are their identities clearly known? Basically, I wonder if Carole knew she was speaking to a journalist or not.

I'm not implying stupidity at all - you're taking my post out of context. It's more a question about how the Mandrake column works - if there are "spies" out at these society functions, or if the people garnering the information are clearly known as members of the press. I wondered the same thing about the reported Princess Beatrice/Katie Nicholl conversation at the roller disco charity event. I certainly wasn't suggesting then that Beatrice was stupid, and I'm not suggesting that about Carole now.

It's pretty clear she knew excatly who she was talking to.
Or at least, it is to be hoped she doesn't indulge in self-pitying rants with strangers whose background and profession she doesn't even know.

I don't that's in the least bit true. Chelsy has been trashed left and right from the beginning while Kate had a long honeymoon with the press. The coverage of Kate is now mostly negative (often with reason, imo), but it wasn't always the case.
Even now, improvements in Chelsy's dress sense and demeanor are credited to Kate.

Just out of curiosity, but what's all the fuss? Have they stopped being seen together again? I'm a bit out of the loop I guess, but as far as I knew the last time, they'd very publicly gotten back together. Mind you that was donkey's years ago.

That's basically it, Empress. They were last photographed together in September at a wedding in Salzburg. Kate was last photographed when she was caught by paparazzi allegedly talking on her phone while driving in October. Some people have construed her absence from photos as evidence of a possible breakup. There were multiple verbal reports that Kate attended Charles's birthday party at Highgrove, but only a few of the guests at the party were photographed, and neither of the royal girlfriends were pictured.

For crying out loud, is that what all of the fuss is about. Maybe she's just become a bit better at avoiding the press and the all encompassing desire to know the color of her leg hair a bit better than some other previous girlfriends of high profile people. Heaven knows she is beginning to act like some of the current crop of CPs if she is, which learning would stand her in good stead if she does become a princess.
