Reflections on Will and Kate, one year later

A good opinion piece about the how media has been portraying Kate since she married Will.

A couple of quick updates to your Kate Calendars:
  • This Friday, May 11, we’ll see the couple in their roles as Olympic Ambassadors as they attend the "Our Greatest Team Rises"ť concert at Royal Albert Hall.
  • a new appointment is on the schedule for the Duke & Duchess, they will join almost all the other royals for the Sovereigns’ Luncheon on May 18 at Windsor Castle, a very big deal with monarchs from all over the world, more on this function from the Windsor Express: “Buckingham Palace has announced they will join the Queen and other royals at the historic gathering of crowned heads from reigning monarchs from around the globe. Those expected to attend include the Emperor of Japan, the King of Tonga, President Khalifa bin Zayed of the UAE, the Sultan of Brunei, and the Emir of Qatar.”
With thanks to the wonderful WhatKateWore website!

I know William is tall and very fit, but his suits always fit perfectly! Anyone know if Kilgore makes them?

Jesus, is TFS being sponsored by the Telegraph? The Buzz page is in love with them. Are people really that interested in Kate and Wills in here? I live in London and I see more references to those two in here than in the newspapers i read.

does anyone else think its strange that kate middleton did the same gap year program in chile that william did? she did the program months after he did.

i wonder how many other people tried to do that after it was reported in the press.

^ Yes, that has crossed my mind as well...Kate is now the Patron Saint of young women who want to 'marry well'!! (Which, BTW, is not such a bad thing- she certainly invested a lot in this relationship with no real promise of it amounting to anything there for quite a while...)

Marrying a queen or a king does not make you a proper queen or king, you are just a consort. You do not rein, only the succession of the last monarch reigns regardless of who they marry, so Kate will never have a numeral.

The husband of the current queen was given the title of Price Phillip for example.

^However, I wonder, couldn't Kate end up just being titled princess when William is king? That's what happened in the case of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip. Did they ever say why Phillip wasn't given the title of king? Was it to make sure people knew that the Queen was the one with the power? Because that's rather understandable, I'm sure some people might have assumed these sort of things if he had been given the title of king. Also, slightly off topic, but I've herd some people speculate that when Charles is king Camilla will just remain a Duchess, is this correct? Or will she also become a queen consort? Royal titles can be bloody confusing that's for sure!

Technically Prince Philip isn't given the title "King" because for titles King ranks hire than Queen in precedence (I guess he could be a King consort and not outrank the Queen, but it's to distinguish title vs. sovereignty). So historically there's Queen Victoria & Prince Philip and Queen Anne & Prince George.

Then I think Camilla is going to lose "Duchess of Cornwall" get the title "Princess Consort," because Duke of Cornwall is an automatic title for the eldest son of the Monarch, so William will inherit that title when Charles becomes the new Monarch.

^Ahh okay thanks for clearing everything up for me. Glad to know I was on the right track about Prince Phillip not being titled "King." It makes total sense to me.

Is everyone getting excited for the Queens jubilee? It's only a few weeks away. And I'm already excited to see what Kate wears for it. And of course, the celebrations themselves. I'm just planning on watching the concert with my mom and sister and toasting to Queen Elizabeth.

The moderator team has decided to close all running-commentary mega threads like this one as the over-analyzing of a particular celebrity's behavior is not consistent with tFS' purpose. Instead, choosing to keep RHI focused on newsworthy pieces that would be deemed off-topic in the other forums. Thank you for understanding.
