"Prince William Splits With Girlfriend"
Prince William splits with girlfriend |

Hmmm... I suppose time will tell if what the articles say is true.

Principessa Cano 04-14-2007 03:17 AM

The BBC is now also on the story. I think this is a legit.

BBC NEWS | UK | Prince William splits from Kate

If this is legit, it really saddens me. I especially feel so sorry for Kate, who seems to have made a lot of sacrifices in order to keep the relationship going. But I suppose it's better to back out sooner rather than later...

Oh gosh I just heard this announced on a news ad on Channel 9 in Australia. Is it true? If it is I'm so sad for them, they seemed to be happy together ... and on a purely selfish tact I thought she'd make a wonderful Princess of Wales. :(

Even the BBC report seems to be based largely on the Sun story, so we don't know how accurate it is.

If we don't see William and Kate together again, we'll know it's true.

I guess this means the "Wife for William" thread could be back in play.
Some members will be pleased that Princess Theodora may get a second chance. :lol:

If it's true, that is a real shame :sad: I had such hopes for Kate as future Princess of Wales and Queen (ahead of myself I know, but it all just seemed to be moving along nicely).

Still, if it wasn't meant to be then I wish her every happiness.

I wonder how her mother shall be taking in though (if it's true). Maybe 'mummy' will be more devastated than Kate :rofl:

secret_addict 04-14-2007 04:25 AM

The problem for Kate is where does she go from here? Everything that she's done over the last 3 years or so has been tailored to suit the royal family and now that's gone. Breaking up with someone you've been with for so long is terrible enough, but I imagine the extra upheaval this will cause for Kate will make it extra devastating.

But didn't they also break the story they were together in the first place? I think it's quite a modern trend having mini-marriages which the majority of the time don't end up lasting because well what's the point sort of been there done that sort of mentality.

If they split and the cause of this is the media pressure, all I can say is "well done, guys!". I doubt that even the best trained royal/equally-born girlfriend will resist to this pressure.

It's true and weren't we all taken for mugs? Well, I hope William isn't going to hang around too long. He needs to get himself a Princess and settle down. Madeleine is still avaliable and the longer he stays single the more boring he will be.

magnik 04-14-2007 05:55 AM

I heard it two housrs ago and I was little surprise ...

Or maybe it's simply next The Sun's revelation?

Any oficial statement of royal spokesman or anyone from the Palace?

BeatrixFan 04-14-2007 05:58 AM

Clarence House are silent on the issue but the BBC has it as it's main story.

acid_rain3075 04-14-2007 06:04 AM

isn't the Sun a british tabloid? am I the only one weirded out that all these news agencies, who are suppose to be some what reliable, are using a tabloid as the basis of their own stories
