Well if he wants to be king - the defender of the faith, the head of the CoE, well shacking up with his long term girlfriend isn't good form. It would be better form for them to marry. Call me old fashioned but it is such a conflict of interest and complete variance to what he is supposed to represent.

What I kind of forsee happening is that before William is ever crowned King, his father Charles will have adapted "defender of the faith" to "defender of faith". Its been remarked on several occasions that perhaps this is something Charles may wish to do.

As far as Will and Kate sharing living quarters in Wales, I think now will be the only time that they will perhaps enjoy a "normal" private life...grocery shopping and all. Once they commit to each other and to living in the Royal Fishbowl, things will drastically change for both of them.

Well said. Does anyone here think Wills hesitates because he doesn't want Kate to end up like his mother? I'm not talking about the way she died, of course. Just the quality of life she lived because of the attention. Cause if he really loves her, this must be the only reason that makes sense.

Diana, as well as Sarah Ferguson, didn't realize exactly how much their lives would change, Kate knows all this, we all know it and waiting won't change it because she won't know anything more about it than she does now, nearly a decade older than Diana at the moment of her wedding.

I think that statement is hitting the nail dead on. There must have been so many times as a child he's run into situations with Diana where he'd be thinking "why can't they just leave us alone!". He also witnessed first hand how the royal lifestyle and duties it entails means not only being in the public eye constantly, but also spending a lot of time apart from each other.

This solution of theirs in Wales gives them some breathing space together. When they are both ready to tackle the royal duties and raise a family I think they'll make it official.

what does the CoE have to say about people living together out of wedlock?

Well the CoE tends to have a liberal view on most things, I don't see what the problem would be with them living together.

These days the CofE is more relaxed about all sorts of things (one of the reasons I have left the church actually but that is a personal decision). Unless it is fully public i.e. they are publicly living in the same quarters at BP with children the church won't say anything. However, once there is a child on the way the church would advocate marriage (and in this situation if they won't the child to inherit they will have to be married).

This report is a very good reason why no one with half a brain would wish to get involved with this family - absolutely no privacy. Do we really need to know that a) he doesn't carry cash or b) what was in his shopping basket?

I think it wrong for the store keeper to release store footage and his grocery bill to the press. I wonder was she paid?

You got that wrong. Excuse me. They are liberal to an extent, I think mainly for the benefit of people with baggage and habits considering conversion. It's to make it easier for people to find God. However Anglicans are taught to get married, as stated in Genesis. I don't care who's living with who, it's none of my business if they want to do God's will or their own but William is in training to be defender of the faith so it's appropriate to question it. If peeps are correct and Charles changes it, well that's a big call on his hands but then at least they can do as they please and not look like they're in variance.

I did gasp when I saw that article.
CCTV pictures? Even by Daily Mail standards, this is a despicable new low. I bet you they will be ranting about the 'Big Brother' nation tomorrow.

That said, I admit I repressed a chuckle when I read they were in the store for all of 10 mins. Yep, grocery shopping obviously takes an obscene amount of time.

Now that England has been knocked out of the World Cup an engagement announcement might bring some cheer to the English.

I think William should have supported either the Rugby or Cricket teams - both of whom have beaten the Aussies in the last two weeks - bad luck about the soccer team but the real sports are doing well.

I agree, I just do not think it is right to release CCTV footage like that. That little McColls store can be sure they will not be seeing William again!

Kate is on the cover of The Sunday Times Magazine

Kate Middleton: why is she still the princess in waiting?

She’s done her training, stopped partying and cleared her diary. So how long must Kate Middleton wait in silence for William to propose?

Camilla Long

Published: 27 June 2010

Not much of an ivory tower, Oak Acre. A flash five-bedroom house in a pretty, vacant village just outside Reading, the Middleton mothership — home to Carole, Michael, Pippa, James and Kate — could easily be any other commuter-belt barn, with its pale gravel and a turquoise leisure wing.

I thought it was a general rule of business that customers' activities aren't blabbed about. To release video footage goes way beyond that. Perhaps the store that gabs least about Kate and William shopping there will get more of their business.

Well then 2 members of the royal family have gone against there faith.
Because both Zara and Mark Phillips have lived with there respective partners.
I don't see why the CoE should have a problem with William living with his possible future wife and at the moment long term girlfriend. She seems to be living with him anyway.
