    So What if she set out to meet him (if she did)? How many of us set out to meet our favorite skater? How many fans set out to meet the actor or sports personality of their dreams? Unless we've delusional, we don't expect a RL relationship to come out of it. Well, I know some people think they are actually friends with a skater after they meet them but most of us live in reality. If there was nothing there but a social climbing gold-digger, would William have been attracted? I'll bet he met lots of girls in college who wanted to meet him only because he was royalty. He didn't end up with any of them, did he? So the fact she changed colleges (I went to 3) has nothing to do with anything. It's a non-issue.

    ITA taf2002. That is exactly my point. Kate was planning on going to Scotland so if she changed Uni's so she was at school with William, what's the big deal. There were lots of women at that college. William had lots and lots of choices. He also had many opportunities to break it off. He could have headed out to sea with the Navy like his father did if he really couldn't figure out how to break things off. In fact, William did breakup with Kate but then decided he wanted her back. IMHO it is pretty insulting to William to assume the Kate manipulated him into marrying her. I think people are just looking for drama where there isn't any. I hope William and Kate just carry doing what they think is right and best for their family.

    She may or may not have sat out to meet him, but what the heck, not exactly a crime. And I am sure that in her wildest dreams she never thought he would actually marry her and she would one day be Queen or England.
    Very very lucky girl,

    It is interesting how focus on goals in commended in some cases and not in others. My dh admits that he picked out 5 women at the beginning of a summer semester and was determined to date all 5 by the end of the summer. Now in his case, I was the first he asked out so he never got to the rest :p

    Just wondering...how on earth do you break that kind of news to your parents? "Hey mum and dad...I'm dating this lovely guy named Will. By the way, he's the second in line to the throne..."

    I'd love to know what the Middletons' reaction was!

    Likely, they didn't hear it from her first, right? He's not exactly a private figure; I'm sure rumors travel quickly and it got back to them before she did. Could be totally wrong, though.

    They seemed to have kept the fact that they were dating out of the press for a year or longer, so she likely told them herself. St Andrews was a respite from the constant press for William and as long as the relationship was an on campus thing only, it was private like everything there was for him.

    A middle-aged divorced guy who moved back in with his parents, and the private security from the homeowners' association didn't recognize him.

    Sad, very sad....

    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 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.
