That real estate article is weird, too. Are we supposed to believe they were shopping for houses in California? Really? They just made a jaunt over to Malibu between Sunday's polo match and Saturday's Horseguards parade?

I thought it might bring a laugh, honestly I don't know how a girl who wrote an honor's thesis for her degree could be accused of never opening a book or being stupid in any way.

There have been pictures of Kate reading. When she and Wills went to Seychelles in 2007, they were photographed buried in books.

As for William being arrogant, this is not the first time that has been reported. I'm sure there is some truth to that.

The major difference with 2002 was that the Golden Jubilee was an event held in honour of the Queen. Even the most fervent anit-monrachists here tend to grudgingly accept some degree of respect for the Queen. The same applied for the Queen Mother who was generally well-respected and well-liked. Imo the same level of goodwill doesn't really apply to the younger generation of royals.

There will obviously be spectators whenever William gets married but imo the idea that people will flock from every corner of the UK is reminiscent of a bygone era.

I disagree, I think if they put on a big enough show people will get caught up in it all and they will flock from all over. Which is what I think happened when Diana died, when the Queen Mother died and what happened during the Jubilee celebrations. Will they come out of some great respect for William and the Royal Family? For most probably not, they will come simply because it will be the place to be. Then they will go home, get back to their lives until the next big show the Royals put on for us.

Sonjapearl, I have never seen ANY Seychelles photos, can you provide a link? I agree with you it's not a stretch to believe that William is probably a bit arrogant sometimes.

This royal wedding article is from the gossip section of the New York Post. Which it does detail the news in NYC it is a tabloid. So take it with a grain of salt. Cindy Adams is one of the premier gossip ladies here in the States.

Buying a house in Cali!? Come on.....could they could up with something a little more believeable.

Berlin online reports that in the US media reports that a wedding date would have been announced.

It would be great if there was a wedding date set, but I hope that what is written in the article about Camilla is not true. It seems unlikely to me that William would choose his parents' wedding anniversary as his wedding date, but if he has, I do not see Camilla why should have a problem with it.

How reliable is Berlin Online?

Not very I would think. The first to know would be the British media, when the announcement is made.

That's a definite. British tabloids would be the first to know about the engagement and an wedding date.

I think that German article is sourcing one of our American tabloids, which claims that William and Kate will marry on Diana's birthday next year. Somehow, I doubt that.

Just some more "wishful thinking" and "silly speculation", I should think. Nothing newsworthy there!
