I was just thinking that maybe not only William, but also Kate is not ready to get married. Dating a prince might be a lot of fan: all the perks being close to royal but no duties and obligation of royal spouse. Who knows maybe it is Kate who prefers not to enter royal family. Just a thought.

If Kate thinks that way very soon she will be called official mistress and not the "girlfriend" which would be a shame for a young, rich, beautiful young lady. It remains to be seen if she will get this title or that of royal bride, one or the other must be looming, or of course another alternative would be that she returns to real life and gets on with it.

Still it would be nice if she was sat in an engagement interview she was able to say she had pursued something other than selling plastic tiaras and napkins.
Those plastic tiaras and napkins have paid for alot. I wouldn't knock the vehicle that affords her family a very comfortable lifestyle that her parents are blessed to be able to give to their loved ones. It's gratuitous remarks like this that invalidate 99.9% of the pap I read hurled against Kate Middleton.

I read just that a few years ago. I also believe it is a mutual decision because neither of them is ready to be a parent. The pressure is on for an heir the second they marry. Confident in my relationship as I believe she is, I certainly would be in no rush to give up any more of my freedom while still young.

The moment any announcement is made, life or any freedom for Kate stops! Can anyone blame her for wanting to hold on to that for a while longer?

Absolutely. Could not agree more.

We have had views that wonder if she will inherit the family business, I think that we should come down to earth, it is selling plastic tiaras and napkins on the internet not Tiffany´s. It is apparently giving them a nice living. I really don´t know as much as you about their financial affairs but they do seem to have done well out of selling these party products and have moved up the social ladder as we can see from photos of their former residence although I have to agree that taking pictures of paper napkins doesn´t seem quite appropriate for a girl with her University education, but then becoming the next Queen of England doesn´t seem appropriate to me either, but you never know. As someone said previously, boring is good when compared to some of the scandals that have plagued the BRF in the last few years.

Once again, no one knows for sure how Kate has spent her time over the years. Posts continuing to argue this point have been and will be removed.

Kate is in a no win situation here. Getting a traditional job is problematic as any firm she worked for would be besieged with the media hoping for a story and a photo, causing all sorts of problems for any other employees with regards to building accesss, stress levels and transportation issues not to mention loss of productivity for the firm. I think she is smart to work for the family business away from the glare of the media. If she does choose to marry William, I think it will be around the time she is ready to start a family. I can't imagine that they don't have some kind of understanding on where the relationship is going, and a rough timetable worked out if they are thinking marriage.

I think it is a real shame that they might have to plan their lives this way. They should be able to marry and enjoy each other's company as husband and wife for as long as they like before having children when they choose to. Yet as soon as William marries the public's attention will be focused on his wife's waistline. I think it is gross invasion of their privacy, but then the Royal lifestyle and the relationship between the RF and the public are strange and un-natural and anachronistic, IMO. Yet compelling.

They're royal girlfriends 25 years apart - but as these amazing pictures show, Koo Stark and Kate Middleton have a lot in common ...

Very interesting comparison. I think Ms Middleton will like this article.

I always wondered if Prince Andrew could have married Koo if he would still be married.

Well if she ends up as Koo did that won´t be very good for Kate.

I have yet to hear that Catherine Middleton is trying to become an actress or lead the life of one.

My answer was to the remarkable physical resemblance between the two. I have read that Koo Stark was a very very nice person and that even Princess Anne liked her, and that would be certainly be a good start to aspire to becoming a member of the BRF.
Her downfall was an erotic movie, note, not pornographic.
I remember Kate modelling at an underwear fashion show but times have changed although I admit the two events cannot in anyway be thought alike.

She modelled underwear at her University fashion show and there were pictures of her walking up the catwalk with Prince William in the front row....
I think it was about that time that she first attracted his attention.

It was a charity fashion parade put on by St Andrew's students, the models were all students. It wasn't the first time that William saw her, she lived in the same student accomodation as he did ( different floors) they had friends in common, plus they were in the same course. At the time of the fashion parade Kate was dating another student ( he was tracked down by the media but won't talk about her, other than to say she's a lovely person) but the story went that William was smitten by her and paid 500pounds to book a table at the charity fashion parade as she was going to be in it.

Well there we are, her first recorded charity work, and she managed to raise at the minimum £500 for parading in underwear. Good for her.

Thank you all for the information Now I hope you're not going to tell me that she has run around the University drunk and naked (I know there's such a...hmmm..."tradition" in some Universities )

The Daily Mail must be desperate to put on such a silly piece. Koo Stark and Kate Milddleton doesn't look alike at all. It's grasping straws to compare them just because they both have brown hair. I haven't seen any new photo of Kate for months. And with William in training, there is very little on him too. DM might as well take the comparison a step further and bring in Andrew and William in the piece. They would have more in common being princes, second-in-line, in millitary, flying....etc.
