That was a trend that has long died out. I don't think many of the celebrities who supported it really knew much about or even cared about Jewish mysticism. Just a fad.

Not only people who practice Kabbalah wear red strings for protection against the evil eye, Italians, Spanish, and some Turkish people also do this. Although, most Turkish wear a eye on blue string (same with most Greeks). When I married I had to tie a red string around my grader-belt as to ward all evil thoughts of people who might not wish us well on our wedding day...

Ps Way off topic...but why not: In China the bride wears red because it is good luck and keeps evil away...

There's also the "red string of fate." The fable is something about a boy is introduced to his soulmate. He doesn't want her & throws a rock at her. Her face is scarred for life. Many years later, on his wedding night --it was an arranged marriage-- he meets the most beautiful woman he's ever seen. She has something covering over her eye, and she explains that when she was a little girl, a boy threw a rock & hurt her.

The red string of fate is, iirc, a Chinese tale of soulmates, who are tied together by a red string.

I could not say what the reason was for the red string, if it was for kabbalh or otherwise.

The chinese do place meanings to colors, though. Red always symbolized good fortune and the direction of west. For the Chinese, white was a color associated with death. In the West, white is purity, hence used for a bride. The Chinese would interpret the color differently.

Wow what a fantastic diversity of meaning of wearing a red string. I really liked all the different interpretations. For whatever reason the princes were wearing them, it just goes to show the diverse cultures that are part and parcel of our every day lives these days.

This is a small example of where I was trying to state that at one time the PoW mentioned being "Defender of Faiths". It is very possible that by the time William does reach the throne that just may be what he will be considered. Its quite off in the distant future and who can really know what will happen by then. As stated before there's a lot of history behind "Defender of the Faith" and most likely would take legislation to change.

I would like to say that maybe red is just his favorite color, but I heard that his favorite colors are actually hunter green and blue:)

It was Defender of Faith - singular not plural.

It will definitely take legislation to change it as it was legislation that created it for Henry VIII (the second time after the Pope revoked it). This is one reason why I doubt that it would happen as that would lead to all sorts of things about the royal family being debated and could backfire and see a whole range of things get changed - it is the same reason why they are wary about changing the Act of Settlement or the RMA.

The book's title says the United kingdom's most followed couple. Does that mean A) that they are a topic of interest that people follow the most, or B) that they are stalked by the papazzari the most...

Or it could just be C) all of the above... :)

Psst! It's usually "D": All of the Above. You need to come up with another "C".

I don't think she went looking for press coverage with these things but more that the press was there and was negative so she withdrew. She never really encouraged them but tried to live with them and they made it impossible for her.
i dont agree. Kate to "hate" the press?
I can't beleive that someone who has complained of press intrusion, would actually arrange a photo-op. exclusive photoshoot of Kate's training , and with her crewmates posing exclusively for Hello!
Sorry, but you can't have it both ways.
But she like the fame/ magazines,especially 'Hello Magazine
maybe, no she 'love' having the paps follow her
happy with the paps:

"The girls are slightly perplexed – this should have been mentioned three months ago, not two-and-a-half weeks before the race," an insider tells people.

It appears that she enjoys the attention now... but will that change in time, it usually does when fame becomes very unfulfilling.

Courting paps can be a very dangerous thing. Diana did that, and paid a price for it. The press could care less if the image is positive or negative, as long as it will gain attention.

I'm sorry but if you had the press following you around every day, sometimes you are happy sometimes you are sad. If you've woken up and your having a bad day, the press is just going to make it worse.
I think we can assume that after 2007, her and William made some kind of agreement, and she's changed her attitude because of whatever that agreement was.
If your nicey nice to the press all the time, the press are going to expect that all the time. The press need to know where they stand with this woman, and the law suit showed them that.
