That's really stupid. I've heard about their engagement from 2005. And what? Nothing. I don't believe that until I see Kate with engagement ring on her finger like Victoria.

I don't actually see William and Kate marrying any time soon, so I've just come to ignore all the rumours of "this year" and "this summer." They'll probably marry sometime after he's finished his RAF training, if they marry at all. I recently watched a CBC interview with Sarah, Duchess of York and she commented on how she felt the royal family had "learned" from her and Diana's marriages...she mentioned that Sophie had lived with Edward for five years before they married, whereas both Sarah and Diana had basically met and married their princes in little over a year. William is going to be king someday, so the royal family really doesn't want his reputation tainted by any messy divorce, and I think they're just "playing it safe" by encouraging William and Kate to have a very long courtship. Maybe from a "commoner" standpoint it looks odd, because they've definitely been dating long enough to be thinking about an engagement, but...this is the royal family and they have public relations to consider. A long courtship can't do much harm, but a too-hasty marriage definitely can...as the past has shown.

i think they're definetly going to marry when he finishes his RAF training too, and also when he ends that chapter he will get much more envolved with royal engagements and then they'll do it

I have a feeling William and Kate probably get quite a laugh out of some of these articles as well.

I agree. And after 6-7 years of relationship royal family is used to Kate. She's never made any trouble, so I don't see problem. And Will said that he didn't want to marry before 28-30 years old.

Woman's Day

Just like Diana and Fergie before her, royal-in-waiting Kate is afraid dark forces are out to harm her.

I can't bring up this link ...but with out reading it I just can't think why they would want to cause any harm to her rep...as long as she is linked to William what hurts her IMO hurts him.... the papers will stop at nothing to have a good story to sell!!!

It's Woman's Day. Take no notice of it, but enjoy the quotes:

"William's girlfriend was left mortified last week after sordid revelations...about the business activities of her pal Emma Sayle, who runs an underground sex club... the paper described in graphic detail the kind of hedonistic behaviour that happens...

While there is no suggestion Kate is personally involved in the club or has ever visited it — and indeed the two women have not been seen publically together since...last year — sources say the mere fact that Kate has links to Emma is enough to do tremendous damage to the young royal-in-waiting's reputation.

The timing of the revelations...could not be worse, with respected French magazine Point De Vue reporting that an engagement announcement...is being prepared."

Apart from the purple prose - "left mortified, sordid revelations, graphic detail, hedonistic behaviour, tremendous damage, links to Emma" etc, and the increasingly-clichéd "sources say", whoever claimed that Point de Vue was "respected" for its engagement predictions?

Monarquía amenazada por falta de audiencia · ELPAÍS.com

Monarchy threatened for want of hearing
The British real family is the soap opera of more success and longer duration for all time. The ingredients could not have imagined them nor the most extreme scriptwriter: aristocracy, money, palaces, beautiful women, sexual places jet-Seth, loves and desamores, scandals, millionaire Arabs and, even, a tragic death, with conspiracy airs. And it has another additional factor to his favor, especially within the United Kingdom. One is a family with which, much more there of the logic and the reason, people identify themselves as if she had with her a sanguineous relation, or at least tribal. But today, although the scene is the same, the ratings lower, history loses gas. And the fault has the new generation, his more recent protagonists, those that assumed that they were going to stand out to the famous list that led Morning call of Wales: its older son, prince Guillermo, and his fianc2ee for five years, Kate Middleton.

Talking

The ever reliable Katie Nicholls.

Kate Middleton may be desperate to wed Prince William, but as I revealed on Sunday - the Prince has no time to even think about a wedding!
Wills, who is training to be a search and rescue pilot with the RAF has used up all of his annual leave and wont be having any time off this year.

Prince William will marry princess Madeleine in 2012? Good joke. Sorry Will, no chance with Maddy boyfriend. I hope they'll married after Victoria and Daniel.

the longer this relationship continues, the more i'm convinced that it's going to be, in some sense, a repeat of his father's relationship with camilla. my prediction is they will be together for a while yet, then they will break up but remain friends and she will be a very close confidente but he will marry someone else. just my humble opinion.

Well Duchess I really hope this is wrong. All though they say sometimes history does repeat itself... I would hope that William has learned from his parents mistakes. We will all have to watch and see!!!!

Does any one know when the 'engagement' is next supposed to be announced?

So far this year we've had - they would break up in two weeks, Kate's birthday, Valentine's Day and end of March, so I was wondering what the next date is?

I suppose William's birthday but maybe somewhat earlier than June - the Queen's birthday for instance?

Announcing engagements must be a really good business for the press!

I don't agree with you. Kate is better treated than Camilla and she behave in this way that royal family accepted her. Chelsy wasn't as welcome as Kate. And I think that Chelsy and Harry are more like Camilla and Charles. They split up but they are close friends and even Harry finds another girlfriend he won't forget Chelsy. And Will said he don't going to married before 28 or 30. Kate knows about it. And who knows? Maybe she's not busy to go into marrage so quickly. Ends of party life, begin of parentship. Tabloid say that she's desperate, maybe unfair for her. Peter and Autumn married when they're 30,31 years. I think Kate and Will do the same.
