Marilyn, I really liked your report. I also like your other report awhile back when you slipped up and said "Pippaleton" boy I tell you that was so funny. I rewinded that over and over again. You have great humor.

I have to say, I do like kate and you are right. She hasn't put a foot wrong and she is clearly in love with William. She is continuously welcomed into the royal fold and William is clearly in love with this woman. I think there are people out there that just hate he has settled for her. She has great beauty and she don't do things that would make you very made so they look at her and say she is too "PERFECT." Also they think she is going after the crown, which is not true. I think it's beautiful that they both as invested so much time and love in that relationship and don't seem to care about what people may think. She seem to be very strong and walk with lots of confidence. They haven't been seen together in awhile and people are beginning to think the relationship is over. But as you can see that she was truly being bashed for going out to clubs a lot and being seen too much so now she is pretty much laying low and WORKING at Party Pieces. But you can tell things has changed a lot and I'm sure she and William are doing just fine. Marilyn, it's been said that she & Chelsy has been invited to Charles's birthday party next month so hopefully we will see them there. I don't think we have seen the last of William & Kate and I think there's more exciting things to come.

What did the Hello! Royal Issue say about Kate?

Thanks very much Rman. Your comments have made my day! Yes, I still get a chuckle over the "Pippaleton" slip up. Don't know what was going on in my head when I said that but as long as people enjoyed it that's the main thing! :)

Yes, I heard about the invitation to Prince Charles' birthday. I think that's a good sign. Kate seems to be playing her cards right, but then again, maybe she's just living her life and we're all the ones making a big deal out of it. Who knows?

That issue of Hello! doesn't mention Kate very much. Only in relation to Prince William's life and career plans. Surprising considering that Hello! is the one that regularly makes a big deal out of their relationship. There are a couple of photos of them together but the issue is mainly focused on today's royal family - the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, their children and grandchildren. It's a nice issue, definately a keeper.

I love your blog!!!
so glad I found it. Feel less like a loony now that I know I'm not alone following the royal family.
I think this article is pretty relevant to the issue of why some people hate Kate Middleton...
