Good grief! Do people cry at weddings instead?

In sickness and in health

I've heard that Kate is very caring of William when he is feeling poorly and that is a very important part of a relationship don't you think? What he needs as a prince is someone who can make him a nice hot lemon drink when he feels sick. And it's good she's not beneath doing things like that.

I believe the mother of the bride quite often cries....
Whatever the religious ceremony, whether joyful or sad it isn´t very well brought up to giggle. Well at least the way I was brought up.

You are right one could read it that way and judging by some others people's comments on the story they read it like that also.

But agree with you it does make Kate look like an afterthought in that piece.

Those who would read it that way already have a preconceived notion of Kate, though, I think. They want to think the worst of the situation, and they'll read it that way, even though there's really nothing in the article to support it. That's all I'm saying.

Well they may do, but personally I dont believe the story to begin with.

I am a little surprised he is keeping his room on base. Mine moved into a hiring as soon as was humanly possible. As much as anything, if it is true, it was probably to accommodate his PPO's and give him a little more privacy.

Elitist, possibly, but in this instance I don't blame him!

Heck, if I were in his position and had the money, I might make the same choice! I just think that the Sun was trying to jab a little at that "elitist" sensibility in the article.

I think we have to keep in mind is that the Royal family has become very sensitive about public perception.England has just entered into a recession,and William's wedding would be a grand affair,costing many millions of pounds.They may have to wait for more favorable economic times.

Waiting for better economic times could take a while!

Personally, I'm starting to think William and Kate aren't going to marry for a long time.

Or they have a scaled-down wedding, like Edward and Sophie (only in London rather than Windsor), as a way to hopefully boost the local economy. It could be sort of the same thing that the recent inauguration in America did for Washington, DC -- it cost some money to put on, but there was a serious boost to local businesspeople catering to all the visitors.

I'm reluctant to put a timeline on this at all, but I'm still thinking that summer 2010 seems to be the best bet at the moment.

I just don't think he will marry her. Something tells me that they'll be close for a good while but forever, I'm not sure. I agree that he hasn't really had much of a chance to date/meet other royalty or even other commoners, and even with all of the pressures on him, I think he would have done something by now. Then again, we don't know what he's been promising her. At this point, she has more to lose than he does, for sure.

At this point one would hope that he has at lest told her of his intentions. We on the other hand will just have to sit back and wait.

Ella Kay when you say Summer 2010 is that the engagement or wedding?

I would guess that for a wedding, with an early '10 announcement. The royals tend (as a general, but not hard and fast, rule) to announce engagements in February and have July weddings. But I don't anticipate that for this year. William will have finished his training by summer '10, so that's why I'm guessing that date.

But that's only based on my conjecture. I don't have any inside info, sadly.

Edward's wedding was a small affair because he not directly in line to the throne,while William is second in line and will someday be king.So a big production is in order.A big splashy wedding is what royals do best.
