Russo is working on that one, Duke. HRH's secretary has written Russo back with the outline of a plan for HRH to support the troops. Since one of Russo's sons is currently serving in Iraq, this is important to her.

As far as Wills and Kate go, I think BP is rather enjoying all the speculation because unless we hear it from the horses mouth, nothing is set, is it?

It wouldn't surprise if they got married at Windsor and just had TV showing the service.

Bit like Edward's but with nicer Bride and Groom.

Anything thats not dodgy is welcome I am sure though they'll make a fuel stop on the way to Iraq at a location that has a golf course

I don't believe William is going to marry her at all. He's 27, there is no reason he needs to marry anyone at this point in his life. The press seems to be pushing marriage, all the while the Palace is sending Pr. William out on the world stage alone as a single entity.

Until an real engagement happens, I just don't buy the press buildup, they seem like two people who see each other sporadically.

I'm surprised that Prince William never seriously dated anyone other than Kate since college days...with all the choices out there for a young man of his status and prospects...hhmmm....Kate must be doing something right to hold on to one of the most eligible bachelors in the world....it's obvious she's anticipating a formal engagement announcement after all these years...hold on Katie...

Maybe it is the words of his mother that makes William hold on to Kate so dearly.
Diana said she told William:
"I went to the school and put it to William, particularly, that if you find someone you love in life you must hang on to it and look after it, and if you were lucky enough to find someone who loved you then one must protect it."

Perhaps he is also learning from past generational mistakes, and making his choice one that will be life lasting. However I think that any wedding will fall inside the ages his parents were, neither 'too old' nor 'too young' so as he will have enough time to mould his children. Before the duties of state, that will come in due time, take a monopoly of it.

I think one of the major problems in the Wales' marriage was thier age, had Diana been older she might have had more experience in life to make wise chocies. I just think she was too young for all that pressure, but William has far passed that age so we don't have to worry in that case lets hope he marries before his fathers age of 32. As is he is very much inside the ages of his parents when they married now. Also unless William is in the military when he marries he will be expected to take on full royal duties as soon as he marries and Kate or whom ever his wife is will as well... molding the kids will come way after the duties have started.

I hope that when William marries it is because he wants to and is not pressured. I also hope if he marries Kate Middleton, once again, it is because she is his choice and he is not pressured or "guilted." I don't think the British Monarchy can withstand another major upheaval which occurred when Charles and Diana's marriage imploded.

I like to this that this is the case. Kate must be special for William to have stayed with her for so long...even returning to her after a break-up.

Are you suggesting she is not special to William?

Not at all, I was suggesting that (we all) forgive me, I would (all) hope that William will marry whom ever it is that he loves. Weather it be Kate or the next girl. BTW Im one of the people that believes it will be Kate, and that they are very much in love. Why else would he stay so long in the relationship

Here is another article stating the time is drawling near for an announcement. "It is simply a matter of choosing the date." Let cross our fingers.

I actually didn't read anything new here.
This is the same stuff that has been coming out for the last 5 years at least. No names of people saying things - just 'a source'.
Mr Middleton is about to turn 60 - an age when many men start to cut back their work loads so nothing earth shattering there.

I agree, it is always the same story coming from a unnamed friend of someone. If we only posted stories that have not been printed in a similar fashion on this thread, it would be empty..Anyway, just thought it was the lastest of them.... and since when does it hurt to keep ones fingers crossed.

I too would love to see him marry but it has to be the right woman at the right time for him, her and them.
If Kate is the one then I think she will do a fine job and if she isn't the right one I hope that they remain friends.
