^ Yes, only the Queen and DOE are the Civil List now (meaning they are paid by the state for performing their duties). However, all the royal protection officers are paid for by the state.

And you could certainly argue that the Duchy of Lancaster (which funds the Queen's expenses) and the Duchy of Cornwall (which funds the Prince of Wales and his sons' expenses) would belong to the British government if the monarchy were abolished, and the income from those estates would go into the public purse instead of the royal family's.

Personally, while I agree with them that always being pursued and photographed is an invasion of privacy, the rage and fuss they kick up every time pictures appear just adds fuel to the fire. Their anger makes the story.

Also, Mustique is a private island, but it is open to a LOT of people. Apparently there are pictures that were taken by a fellow guest. It's not like Richard Branson's Necker Island. Mustique is open to anyone who can afford it, more or less.

That's actually false. Yes, they are on a private island BUT they were not on a private beach. That's why the pics were taken in the first place. It is a public beach on a private island where paparazzi are banned. These photos were not taken by a pap so it was totally legal.

I think the photos look great, they look happy and she has a great suit on. That blue color really suits her, no pun. I'd like to see the white suit she wore in 07 to come back too. She looked great in that color as well. The only one I didn't prefer was the animal print one.

I'm looking forward to seeing if her fashion changes after the baby is born; I like what she wears and her 'look' and I would be sorry to see her change it now....

Me too. The two year leave that that Queen gave to Will and Kate is going to be coming to an end so they'll have more royal duties.engagements too. Between that and having a kid, I'm wondering if she'll get bored more easily and experiment (like Diana did), or if she'll go super-safe.

I personally don't mind the clothes but I wish she'd alter her hair. The same long locks. Cut it short, layer it, dye it. Do something!

Yes, if William leaves the RAF, which seems like it has to happen, they should both be out and about much more after the baby is settled in a bit- then we should see an endless stream of new outfits!!
