I hope you have right with Queen. For me she's like pyramids in Egypt: I can't imagine GB without her.

I personally like prince Charles, but unfortunately in the media he's shown as a "guy who talks to plants". People often forget about he did many good thing and not treat him very seriously. And people really should care about global warming and rest.

I have impression that the media in UK has too much influance on public opinion. Maybe William is serious, responsible, well-educated young man, but for many of us (becouse of press: invented scandals, lies, never ending speculation about his wedding with Kate etc.) he's rather English version of Brad Pitt or sth like that.

P.S I like Harry Potter too, but in my age it isn't thing you should to be proud.

Sorry for this off topic.

You are absolutely correct. Most people here in America cannot recognize any other Royal except Queen Elizabeth II. Plus, they could care less -- especially Holland, Belgium, Norway [Princess Victoria's engagement didn't even make the 11:00 PM news!] Most think I am silly that I enjoy world history and read about different monarchies and their origins. To each their own -- I got bored to death at the Indianapolis 500 that others drooled over.

Thank God for the internet for those of us in America who want royal news, Winnie! :)

One facet of a possible William wedding that hasn't been mentioned is the educational dimension -- people watching all over the world will get to see a gathering of tons of current royals and political leaders, and they may learn something about world politics that they might not otherwise!

If you read the press from the late 1890s many of these sentiments were being expressed by the public and the press about Queen Victorian and yet Edward VII became a much beloved and deeply mourned King.

Yes, and in Canada too! I had to rely on magazines from the UK, which usually came a couple of months late. We got current coverage only when something really big happened and made the newspapers!

We got occasional pictures of the Royals, but it was generally things like birth announcements and so on unless there was a scandal. In my royal-scrapbook days, I'd get the paper from another part of the province if something interesting was on the tv news.

Oh MG I knew more about JC (and im not talking religion) from high school than I did about QE2 and I am a loyal and devout monarchist and she is my head of state. JC is one of the few royals who has had a very active and improtant part in his countrys recent history and helped to define and make it the nation it is today. Wills and the other heirs may be so lucky as to be placed in a position that they will be required to make a decision of such magnitutude and please God they would have the strength of character to stand up for their people.

Who is JC?

As you said you weren't talking religion I ruled out Jesus Christ so I am assuming Julius Caesar.

I know of no one else who would have their name shortened to JC but Julius Caesar doesn't fit in with your post.

I believe the JC reference is to Juan Carlos.

Now let's try to get back on topic.

Or at least we could stop talking about the reported engagement and actually starting talking about a true engagement

I do want William to marry for love and all that...but we need a bit of good news now...we will just have to wait for Victoria of Sweden to get married.

We have over a year to wait for that event.
To be frank, he either has to marry Kate or at least get enagaged soon. To give us something to go on. All this ralkof maybe soon, maybe summer, maybe winter is boring and tedious.

Yes, we do have a year but at least we know its happening.

William and Kate have been dating for years now and we are still speculating on an engagement.

Well, I guess that demonstrates at least that they're taking their relationship at a pace they're comfortable with and not being pressured or rushed by family, media, or the public.

But heck, I still wish they'd hurry it up, too, and for the same selfish reasons: I want to talk about it on the boards!

Royal Request for a Blue Sapphire Engagement Ring?


I found this while doing a search on Diana's sapphire ring, apparently this sapphire has been sold, I wonder if it is really for a royal engagement.

Interesting article, Lady Laura. I wouldn't be surprised if the engagement ring is a colored stone like a sapphire, but I doubt very much that it would be set just like Diana's, as the article suggests. That ring is far too famous to be recreated, and I think Harry's the one who has the real thing. Surely they'd want something fresh and new.

I really doubt that W. and K. would even choose a blue sapphire, there would be too many comparison pics to Diana's...but I do wonder if they have a ring picked out.
