    I have never had fruitcake. I have never seen fruitcake. Well, may be in the Yuna threads but not otherwise.

    I think it's not so much photoshop but the lighting that gives that effect. It looks like the photographer was going for a window lighting look that appears like it was blasted a little heavily for those on the front row on the couch, particularly Kate and the Queen, and falls off for those on the back row. It looks better controlled for the picture of just her, William and the baby but I do think that what most perceive as photoshopping can be achieved with better lighting than what you see with the candid pictures from the christening. I'm sure a little photoshop work was done on everybody but she doesn't look airbrushed like you would see on a magazine cover. You can still see a bit of laugh lines and the texture of her skin looks unmodified. I do think this photographer didn't get the challenge of lighting a big group quite right and it resulted in Kate looking a bit washed out in a couple of pictures.

    I enjoy the royals (esp naked Harry ) & I was glad they shared the pictures of this special day. However wrong the colors worn were, how photo-shopped, how vivid, how washed out, how staged they were.

    BTW what IS in the Queen's handbag? Nuclear codes, mace, emergency candy bars, what? Why must she always have it with her?

    Mean, bitter chicks, maybe. But I don't think too many people are in competition with Kate.

    Or they actually think they'd look cute with short hair? Long hair isn't the best look for everyone.


    I think Kate would look nice with shorter hair, but I also think her hair looks lovely at the current length. I feel like the neckline of the dress did need a necklace though. But because of her hair down, I couldn't see her earrings, so I thought she was jewerly free.

    I think for that evening out something was slightly missing from her appearance. Now, of course she looked great, but I think she could have looked even better with even a small understated something around her neck, like a simple diamond. I like that she likes simple and understated, but a little sparkle there would not have been remiss because with her long hair you didn't even notice she wore earrings unless you really looked.

    I can't help but say that I actually prefer how she dressed and did her hair before she got engaged!! Now she has to always look perfect and elegant so people like us can comment, LOL!

    I love Kate's long hair - and if my stylist and colourist are anything to go by, I'm not alone because they get requests for her cut, blow out and colour all the time

    But like James' facial hair, to each his own

    I remember reading once that she does have an American Express card ("Do you know me? I am the Queen of Engliand." "Yeah, right, lady, and I am Leonardo DiCaprio!") and that she has an excellent credit rating.

    I expect she also carries with her a handkerchief or tissue paper, her eyeglasses, and maybe photos of her great-grandchildren and/or her corgis.

    The official word in a recent bio was reading glasses, mints, a pen and a folded bill on Sundays for the church offering.

    Fruitcake tastes like dried drunk maraschino cherries, only some of the "fruits" are green and yellow, so what are they?

    William's pants are hemmed too short.

    He is/was a rugby player. He probably wasn't born that way...and probably can't breathe through it

    I love it too. I've had my hair all lengths in the past 10 years and if my hair looked that good when it was that long, I'd grow it out tomorrow!
    One day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it's worth watching.

    I don't know why but that comment in the middle of all the hair discussion cracked me up.

    His pants are always too short. It is especially noticeable when he is out with Harry, who's pants are always perfect. Maybe William doesn't wear a belt when they mark the hem and then pulls them up with a belt when he wears them. I know I finally had to insist that Mr. Mag tell the tailor to mark the hems and then add a quarter inch because his pants were always too short.
    A good rant is cathartic. Ranting is what keeps me sane. They always come from a different place. Take the prime minister, for example. Sometimes when I rant about him, I am angry; other times, I am just severely annoyed - it's an important distinction. - Rick Mercer

    Sure, there are some women who could rock any 'do, but if the only compliments a woman gets on her hair are from other women, it's a sign that she's been taken largely out of contention.
