Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

Shame about the ring, it would have been better to let the unfortunate past dissapear.

Poor Will, had to get his mum's old engagement ring, couldn't afford a new one. I really think that was an odd thing to do. But she really is pretty and that is definitely good for them royal genes...If you look at the deja vu pics, I'd say yes, but the new ones are prettier
Austerity measures.

So what should they do? Find someone from the same gene pool who has been kept up a tower their whole life, dumb as a sheep but daddy has a title?
Um... yeah. That's the way is goes. Otherwise what's the point of having "them" around.

I agree. He should have gotten her a new ring. Oh well.


Actually, did you hear the interview. PW said he'd been carrying the ring around with him in his ruck sack... Do you think he declared it as customs????

Kate seemed to have sucked all the hotness out of Wills.
Out of Wills what?

Perso i don't believe in any of this 'curse' - If anything bad ever happens to the poor girl, I can already see the headlines. Daft.

I don't believe in a "curse" either. But I just think he should have gotten her her own ring. That's all. Are they really talking about a "curse"? Oh boy.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

I'm not sure getting in the back of a fast car, when the driver was drunk and breaking the speed limit, before crashing into a tunnel wall counts as a curse.
Inevitable I would have said.

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

Apparently they will have their wedding rings monogrammed "WC".

Cheers,

Maybe someone can explained to me why Royalty still so important for Brits?

Well, I would imagine the "curse" had more to do with a bad marriage not her actual death. But I don't know what the word on the street is over this curse. I get all my news from forums.

That's no hat - it's a bin lid.

Probably for the same reason that 'old traditions' are still so important to the Swiss. The Royal family are part of OUR history, It will be a sad day ( if it ever happens) when they no longer exist. (Apart from the 'hangers on' that is.)
I'm sure that The Danish royal family is still important to the people of that country too. I feel sad for countries that don't have much of a history , like America. That's why the ones I know are loving living in Europe. They can't get enough of the history here.

There are far too many people questioning OUR traditions, we wouldn't dream of doing that to people living in other countries, so why do some think that we should give up ours?

Re: Prince William is to marry Kate Middleton

She is pretty without looking like a whore. That's a whole lot these days. It's funny how the press kept calling her middle class, when her parents have millions, The Economist had a very nice article on that. Will could've gotten her a diamond, i mean, will she now wear blue for the rest of her life? It's not really an easy to match colour...

I saw the Daily Mail was going to have a special edition with a horrible looking plate with their faces on it. Laughed so hard! See, Royalty is still important in the UK. To be honest, I am quite jealous on their Royal Family, the Royal Family in Romania was banished when the communists came and now they're living in CH (oh, the irony). Plus, the current king has only had girls and they're not ruler material according to our customs. And 50 years of communism wiped out the love for the royals and most people either hate them or don't even know they exist. Oh well, I wish there was a prince I could marry

There was a show today on ITV 2 and they were making assumptions on what to get them if you're invited to the wedding. The best answer was something like "well, I'd get them IKEA vouchers cuz they'd have to get a place and all..."

Haha, who was it who wrote about Williams birth. I remember the wedding well. I was in Jersey and working in a rather nice hotel at "Saint Brelades Bay". The year I met my Swissy. I loved the pomp and ceremony, but that's me, a commoner.
