Having never met Kate Middleton I still feel safe in saying that she is VERY READY to get married. It would be a rare young lady who devoted nearly a decade of her life to a relationship, nevermind a prince and future king, who wasn't ready for the next step. I don't blame her for sticking around but gosh it's getting to be about time for something to happen -- I think outdoorspeople say "fish or cut bait."

Well said, windsorgirl. I agree with you 100%. The whole subject is getting to be old and boring, imho.

I, too, have decided to cool my jets on this subject until an announcement from CH is made. I enjoy the chatter, but it has been going on so long it makes my head hurt.

The chatter about this has been going on for nearly 10 years.

I suspect that 'the question' has been asked and answered in the affirmative but we, the public, aren't being told until they are ready and that will be about six moinths before the actual wedding day.

I don´t want to be too blunt, but I think we all know "the Question" that has been answered in the affirmative, and it has nothing to do with marriage.

I am stunned, having admitted that you have never met Kate Middleton, a statement is made in capital letters (!!!) that you know exactly what a total stranger is thinking and feeling!

Why the assumption that it's William not Kate dragging her feet to get married. I think it's far more likely to be Kate. Currently, with the help of some legal action in regards to her privacy, Kate lives a private life. She can do whatever job she chooses, move around without the need to have protection officers follow her. Spend time with friends and family, be in a committed relationship. Once married to William she looses her freedom. The Swedish couple Victoria and Daniel said at the time of their wedding (after a long courtship and engagement) that they cherished the most the early part of their relationship before it became public and they lived a 'private life'. (Which is what William and Kate have fought for and seem to have currently achieved)

Daniel also said that it took him a long time to come to terms with the changes that he would have to make to his life. In all likelihood Kate is the one who wants to delay those changes to her life. I can't understand those who think that marriage to a royal is great and of course that's what any woman wants. Kate is already rich, mixes in aristocratic circles, that's how she met William, they had friends in common. Marrying into royalty would be a backward step for her, huge changes in her life, I can see why she wouldn't be pushing for that to happen any time soon.

William himself has been a somewhat reluctant royal, he's stated he doesn't want to get into fulltime royal duties too soon. As afterall, he'll be doing them the rest of his life. So why would he put the woman he loves in the position of doing something that he was born into and wants to delay? He had no choice with his life, he and Kate together do have a choice with hers.

Charlotte don´t make me laugh. A young lady of "the people" has been the "confidante" (I believe this is the modern word for another one that is now non-pc) for 9 years going on 10 who is willing to go on like this forever and is reluctant to become the Queen of Great Britain.
For someone criticising another for seemingly presuming to know the feeling of someone she/he doesn´t know, please tell me what you are doing?
Actually you are presuming that this person doesn´t presume as well as you do.
I agree completely with Windsorgirl, a very good summing up of the situation.

Sorry could you be a little more blunt and explain what you mean by " the Question" ...

In my opion, I believe Kate is VERY ready to marry as well ... who wants to be the girlfriend of the Prince for more the 10 years..

Thanks, Wisteria.

Charlotte, I offer up nothing more than my own opinion.

If this carries on much longer, the question he won't be asking is... has anyone seen my comb....

and the question she will be asking is "is anyone else hot " is mid December.

This article is actually pretty funny. The reporter goes so far as to guess which dentist will be on call for last minute emergencies before the wedding.

I hope it's true because it will put an end to all the speculation, which has been going on it's become very boring, IMO.

I think it's probably true because I think William is a decent fellow and I don't think he'd string her along for so long if they didn't have an understanding. They've been together long enough for the first flush of romance and lust to have well and truly worn off and if, knowing each other as well as they must by now, they still want to be together for the rest of their lives then I think it will work.

But I do wish they'd just get on with it. *yawn*
