You can't compare Williams possible marriage to his fathers or his uncles.
William isn't going to marry until he is ready for those exact reasons, he wants to find the one.

As much as the Queen's private life is just that.. private, its from her that William gained the sense of duty and also discretion. The last thing I think he'd ever want to do is disappoint Granny or his father. This too is where I think Kate keeping a low profile and out of the public mainstream is preparing her for royal life if and when she does marry William.
William also reportedly idolizes and is very close to Prince Phillip, which is interesting considering that Philip is famously not that close with his own sons.

In any case I am relieved to know about William's love and respect for his grand-parents...it's a good sign.

Along with the grandparents, he is also very close with his dad and Harry. I had mentioned somewhere on these forums that perhaps Charles wasn't that much of a "hands on" dad. After reading Katie Nicholl's book, I have to retract that as Charles was very much involved with the boys.

This little tidbit in the book really made me laugh though. I'm sure the story got around which is how Katie got wind of it. One Christmas HM received a cell phone I believe it was. Not overly savvy yet at how it worked and all, she put Harry to the job of recording an appropriate answering message. Will and Harry decided to have a little fun. First person to call that cell number (I forget who it was but I believe it was Janvrin) got the message:
"Yo wassup! This is Liz. I'm away from the throne at the moment. For a hotline to Philip press 1, for Charles press 2, for the Corgis press 3." Harry recorded it while William was snickering in the background.

Just like any other family, they enjoy each other and play practical jokes... I think its very heartwarming.

The book "William and Harry" is a good read I think as long as you realize that Katie did take "poetic license" in a lot of areas but she did name the sources she was given permission to.

A major reason for the failure of Charles and Diana was that they didn't really know each other before the wedding as they simply didn't spend enough time together. Had they had a courtship of a year or more with the public being aware of the relationship I doubt they would have married at all.

Since the failure of Anne's, Charles' and Andrew's marriages Edward dated Sophie for years and that marriage appears successful and happy after more than 10 years. Even the Queen dated Philip for longer than Charles and Diana.

I also. The Middletons' business seems to be one in which the owners are actively involved in the day-to-day running of the business and aren't employing managers to take care of it.

Ahahahaha!

I would have loved to see the look on HM's face when she heard about the joke.

I can not blame Prince William for waiting to marry. He must be sick of those that constantly pressure him for a wedding date. But then, that is a bit part of his duty and responsibility as the future Prince of Wales.

from various newspaper reports that state she left her job to live in Wales with William. Plus her name is off their website.

I am sorry, I am just calling it as I see it. He has been with this young lady going on six or seven years, and has broken up with her twice.

That hardly sounds like a guy who is head over heels. I am not saying he doesn't care deeply for her...I am convinced he does.

But I also think he takes her very much for granted, because she is always..

AVAILABLE.

Being a ladies man doesn't mean the guy runs around with a bunch of ladies.
It just means he likes women.

The thing about Will is that he can't really run around right now. Kate is convenient, meaning she is there. I doubt he's want to start the whole dating process over again.

Seven years, and only broken up twice? That sounds like a guy in love to me. Also, twice? Last time I checked it was only once?

How do you know she is always available? You don't know that when they weren't living together, he would ring her up on a weekend asking to go clubbing, and she would say no?
Where do you get this thought that she is at his becken call?

M23, I agree with you
If William is head over heels for Kate I would start think that Chelsy is THE soul mate of Harry, one thing which definitely I think she is not

Well I think Kate is unfortunately the one for William and Chelsy is the fortunate one for Harry.

I think that Chelsy is "the one" for Harry and IMO William thinks that Kate is "The One" for him. If that's what you mean?
