The pictures in question are of Catherine and George outside the gates of KP (they can be googled). The pictures of The Queen and Carole were taken on a public road travelling to Crathie Kirk.

Apologies, then the new answer is no. A quick google search shows the pictures, but english press only talked about the pictures never published them.

I'm somewhat doubting that the destination was Crathie Kirk from what I saw in the picture. If HM is heading to church, she is dressed for church with hat, gloves and all. In the photo I saw, it looked to me like the Queen was bareheaded and dressed more casual.

I do not think you will find any "average" , middle- class people there, but of course I could be wrong.
Kate and Pippa did go to a notable boarding school which fees were provided for by an education trust fund from the Middldeton side of the family.

Collage was completely different, acceptance being based on exam results, but you paid the same as anyone else. All walks of life could be found there! !

The year previous and while at boarding school, Kate had applied to and been accepted by The University of Edingburgh (where Pippa subsequently went).

When it was announced William would be attending St. Andrews, following a gap year, Kate retracted her acceptance, applied for the same gap year experience as William and the same collage course at St Andrews, which she was granted. While teachers at her boarding school could acknowladge that fact they couldn't say why!

Not true, kate applied to that gap year long before she went (they even had a survival weekend), the head from that charity said that and that was before she knew william would go there because they made that public after. The acceptance at st andrews had to be before the deadline and william made his public after the deadline so kate didn't know he would go there and both ending up at the same study house was a lotery according to the president of the university. I wouldn't read the dm as much.

If St. Andrews is top school like people claim it is, it would have been hard for Kate to get in at the last minute and be in the same year as William like some people, the think.

Excellent first post. I love when people use logic instead of just regurgitating nonsensical gossip. Unfortunately, the latter is all too common around here.

I agree that everyone should abstain from reading the DM unless they are willing to read with a massive amount of skepticism.

It was announced in August of 2000 that William would be taking a gap year before entering St. Andrews in 2001

Prince William to Attend St. Andrews - ABC News

So no it isn't impossible for Kate to have changed plans. A year in advance is in no way last minute switching universities. Deferring entrance from 2000 to 2001, it left a year for her to get into the school. It was also revealed at the same time that he would be going to South America for an educational program. No she wouldn't know which one. But signing up for a program down there would give them something in common. So sorry but there is nothing that is too much if a stretch.

From what I've read she was signed up for the Italian/S. American gap year before it was announced that William had done so. Of course William and Catherine had mutual friends, so she may have known of his plans before they were publicly announced.
She initially planned to attend Edingurgh w/out a gap year, but then decided to take a gap year and rethink what college she wanted to attend ultimately opting for the smaller St. Andrews, which strikes me as a pretty normal change for an 18/19 yr. old.
I've never bought the 'she went to St. Andrews to pursue William' speculation because if that was her goal she would not have entered into the relationship with Rupert Finch her freshman year, IMO.

Exactly everything was released after the deadlines. She had all her gapyear in place before anything was released from william. Exactly like william had to plan before he released anything. The guy from the program in chili said she couldn't have planned it. And that they got in the same residenthall was a lottery according the president from the university so also no planning on her end. And even if she did she couldn't make him fall in love with her.

But this is long ago and not really relevant anymore is it. They have been together for about 13 years now, 5 married and two kids later.

Not the DM!

A teacher at Kate's school confirmed her application to Edinburgh University for the coming year had been successful. It was subsequently turned down, but the school could not comment on as to why. She took a gap year and applied to St. Andrew's for the following year.

William's acceptance to St. Andrew's was announced a year in advance, along with it was the announcement that he was deferring for a year, taking a gap year out which would include the time spent on the programme abroad.

I just love this family. Glad Prince George and Princess Charlotte get to spend quality time with granny Carole.

Quote:
When 3-year-old Prince George and 18-month-old Princess Charlotte arrive at granny Carole Middleton’s manor house in Bucklebury, they can’t wait to see what’s new in her menagerie.

There, around a pond in the splendid garden, is a children’s paradise filled with ducks and chickens. “It looks absolutely beautiful,” a family friend tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “The children love to come and play.”

“I don’t think anything fazes [Kate] — she just takes everything in her stride,” says the friend. “A lot of this comes from her mum. Carole’s lovely, and she just doesn’t let anything faze her.”

The BRF really got lucky with Middleton's. One of the best things to happen to them in a long long time.

Donna's sister, Fran, got married recently, and I noticed her wedding video was posted to the public on Facebook.
https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1249276058458106

In the last 25 seconds of the video, you can see James standing next to Freya, Donna's daughter, during the bride and groom's first dance. James seems very 'in' with the Air family. And when you take into account James' recent comments about loving both Donna and Freya, and Donna's comments about having more children. I really think Donna and James are gearing up for an engagement announcement in the near future. I could be wrong but I think both Middleton siblings will marry in 2017.

Reading the obituary of the Queen's dear friend and cousin Margaret Rhodes today put the Middleton family's close proximity to the royals in another light for me.

It seems out of place these days for family-by-marriage to be allowed so much intimacy because it didn't happen with the families of the spouses in Charles' generation, and that leads to grumbling that they must be grasping/maneuvering/taking advantage. But the Queen grew up with non-royal family being allowed just as close, if not closer, to the center of the royal circle. Margaret Rhodes was related on the Bowes-Lyon side, not Windsor, but her parents' household seems to have been quite thoroughly integrated into the royal family's life. As a child, her family vacationed at Balmoral. As a young woman, Margaret lived with her cousins at Windsor, etc. Perhaps the Queen has always been more open than we realized to the idea of letting a spouse's family in.

I think the Queen Mother was always very close to her brothers and sisters even though, with the exception of David, she was so much younger than them. Therefore it would be natural that the Queen would be friendly with cousins, especially ones close to her in age, (and there was only a few months between her and Margaret Rhodes.)

With inlaws of the Queen's children though, I guess it depends which family you're referring to. Apparently Mark Phillips birth family complained that they hardly saw him after his marriage to Anne, and they certainly weren't invited to Balmoral. Nor were Major Ferguson and his wife. Apart from Jane, Diana's sister, who had a home at Balmoral as Robert Fellowes' wife, none of Diana's siblings or her parents ever had a break at Sandringham or Balmoral, even when the Wales marriage was reasonably happy early on.

Sophie's father was invited to various things including the Christmas celebrations, and there seems to have been a bit of a sea-change regarding this following Diana's death. A bit of a rethink perhaps, and the Middletons have reaped the benefit.
