    I may be wrong, but I thought they knew each other for some time before they started dating. There was a group of them at school who all used to hang out and it evolved out of that. If that's the case then her parents likely knew she was friends with him, and knew it was unfolding as it happened - so no big surprise announcement.

    I think it's a bit ... rude ... that Prince Andrew pointed out that the police "got it wrong" in his statement. I mean, duh, but they have a much harder job than any he's had, and he should have just graciously accepted the apology.

    I have never read anything about Andrew which would make me think he is, in any way, gracious.

    Queen Sofia of Spain is at the U.S. Open cheering Nadal. I cannot find a photo, but I saw her on TV.

    She has such a lovely, kind looking face. I always smile when I see a picture of her.

    Prince Harry is doing another Walking with the Wounded, this time a 208 mile South Pole Trek, in November.
    There are UK, Commonwealth and US teams. Harry is of course on Team UK, Dominic West (from The Wire) is on Team Commonwealth, and Alexander Skarsgard (from True Blood and my fantasies) is participating on team US. Kudos to all for participating!

    Prince William leaves the forces to focus on Royal Duties:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-24065166

    It was to be expected and I'm sure he will do his Royal duties with as much pride as he did his duties in the forces - especially with being a SAR pilot.

    Of course, the timing would have nothing to do with the fact that that means he can spend more time with his son, especially over the next year :p But he's earned it! :)

    Sounds like he's still going to be quite busy with royal duties and charity, including this new role.

    The article says he isn't going to be a full time royal yet though. So yeah, he'll be busy, but he's going to get a lot of family time.

    Kate looked lovely in her silver sequin dress at the Tusk Conservation awards. There were a few photos though that caught an expression that clearly said, "I'd give anything for eight hours of uninterrupted sleep." :lol: But she soldiered through and it was great to see her all dressed up.

    I really think she needs to put her hair up and lay off the eyeliner! She looks great not so skeletal though.

    I can't link pictures at the moment.
    However, she looked fabulous!

    I agree about the hair. Even just half up would look better. I suspect that William is one of those guys who likes long hair worn down.

    Kate is a naturally thin woman who looked just fine prior to her pregnancy. Calling her "skeletal" is body-shaming, unnecessary, and, frankly, not even accurate as she is muscular and well-toned.

    Prince George to be christened on October 23rd at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace.

    No word as to the Godparents yet but Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton are top of the bookies lists.

    Even as an "intimate" family affair, the ceremony will be amazing.

    Even so, weren't there some concerns about her weight when she was pregnant? My mom was/is equally tiny when she was pregnant with me, and her doctors told her to gain as much weight as possible. Which was difficult with bad morning sickness. :p But baby George came out weighing a lot more than we did, so it turned out fine!

    Probably from some gossip sites. Official medical concerns? I don't think so.

    A few more outings for Kate. http://www.entertainmentwise.com/ne...r-At-Lavish-Charity-Gala-At-Kensington-Palace

    I completely support her if she wants to be a full time mom, or just wants to do a bit of very part time charity work; however, I do wish that the writers or Clarence House, or her press people (whoever it is!) would stop talking to her returning to full time royal duties. She has never done full time duties and is certainly no where close to doing them now. It is insulting to people like Princess Anne who do work full time hours representing the Queen and supporting many many charities.

    I doubt that Princess Anne gives even half a damn about how things are phrased in regard to Kate. She strikes me as a woman who does not waste her time being troubled by such things. A trait she very well may have inherited from her mother, so I think the both of them will survive thoroughly unoffended even if the press uses such wording.

    On the news this morning I heard that Harry was rumored to be engaged.
    They didn't say to who. He broke up with that South Africa girl years ago, didn't he?
    Anyway it hasn't been confirmed.

    I think some of these publications figure if they keep printing the rumor, one day they will be correct.

    Then they can say they were first. That's how it worked with "Kate is pregnant!".

    Yes, according to some tabloids she would have been pregnant for years before George was born.

    Big day tomorrow for William, as he conducts his first Investiture Ceremony on behalf of HM The Queen. Among those recieving an honour tomorrow, Andy Murray will be getting his Order of the British Empire for services to Tennis.

    Someone over at the one MB was hoping there'll be some pictures and videos from this. As I said, William's first Investiture *and* the first British man to win Wimbledon in 70+ years receiving his Order at the same Ceremony!?!

    I think the odds are good of pictures and videos.
