Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

Good for them! Congrats To think I used to think of him as hot, but really his hair is going away and his cuteness too. Well, she can have him, then!

Nothing wrong at all - if you look good. He, unfortunately, doesnt.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

Does this mean he'll stop sponging off the state?

If not then who cares?

Spare me all the 'they bring money in' crap.

People still go to France to see the Palace of Versailles and Louis XIV is, I believe, no longer alive.

I'm pretty sure Harry and William don't just sponge of the state. They both have well respected, good jobs.

Harry even fought for his country in Afghanistan.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

I was behind her on the escalator in Peter Jones in Chelsea about 3 years ago. She really is a very pretty girl
The day after the papers were full of pics of her there in the bedding dept.

Do you remember the royal visit to NZ back in 83? Did you do the High School visit to one of the public venues?

As I recall I was still just a nipper and at primary school but the picture of him with the buzzy bee is one that will always be remembered

It's always sad when a pretty, well-brought up girl eventually has to settle and marry beneath her.

Oh hoorah. I hope they invite Aung San Suu Kyi, who has been freed, to their wedding.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

I like this news - it's a bit of snazzy bling coming out of the mundane humdrum that is rapidly becoming the UK.

I might stop at buying a commemorative plate and mug, though...

I think there is a split in the UK between them that want it and them that don't. However, you could ask any nation why they treasure traditions which have cultivated and contributed to a rich history over hundreds of years.
