Royal wedding: Preparations begin for William and Kate

Are media to blame for split? The Sun reported that the couple had seen each other no more than once a week since then. Earlier this month, Miss Middleton settled a harassment complaint against the Daily Mirror over a close-up photograph published by the paper. At the time of her 25th birthday in January, amid mounting speculation about a possible engagement, a media scrum formed outside Miss Middleton’s home. And police officers were called to a London nightclub that month to stop photographers getting too close as the couple left the venue. Prince William, who is second in line to the throne, appealed for the paparazzi to stop harassing Miss Middleton. Her lawyers contacted newspaper editors in to ask the press to leave her and her family alone. They said that photographers had followed her almost every day and night since she had left university.

Prince William and Kate, on the other hand, opted for esteemed photographer Mario Testino to capture their newly engaged moments Lubomirski actually used to be Testino’s assistant before making it himself. Testino’s portfolio of editorials, superstars and high-fashion adverts is well-known but what most probably encouraged William to select him was that he was a favourite of his late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales.

While older members such as the Queen and Prince Charles still use traditional RP, younger royals like the Duke of Cambridge and Prince Harry now speak the younger form. The changing nature of the accent has been highlighted by an ongoing study at the British Library. The story book, by Roger Hargreaves, was chosen because it provides a good range of all the vowels and consonants that vary according to accent.

Those taking part could submit a recording online, or by visiting the library. They believe it gives an excellent sample to record the changes that RP, described as the regionally neutral middle class accent of England, is undergoing.

Clarence House said meetings had been taking place, before the prince returns to his RAF squadron in Anglesey.

Miss Middleton said joining the Royal Family was “daunting” as the couple, both 28, announced their engagement at St James’s Palace in London on Tuesday.

Speculation about the wedding venue has focused on Westminster Abbey, St Paul’s Cathedral and the smaller Guards Chapel, where the 10th anniversary memorial service for Princess Diana took place. He also said he gave her his mother Diana’s engagement ring having carried it in a rucksack for three weeks. But both have the potential to re-kindle unfortunate memories – St Paul’s as the place where William’s parents began their unhappy marriage, Westminster Abbey as the venue of Diana’s funeral.

Yet the challenge will be to put together an event which will meet the wishes of the bride and groom, the expectations of a country wanting to celebrate the marriage of a future king and queen, plus the sensitivities of a country enduring economic hardships. It all seems to point to a royal wedding on a rather smaller scale than in the past.

The most recent example of such folly is Prince William. Stolen photos of him and his little strumpet Kate Middleton were this close to being published before the photos were turned into the police. And as such, we thankfully can now put away this bleach we had on hand in case we viewed the photos and needed to sterilise our eyes.

There should be a new law enacted that says that famous people must go through a famous people instructional course to teach them how to not be idiots. The main structure of the course would consist of teaching them to always wear undies with a short dress for a night on the town, never let your husband make a movie with Angelina Jolie, and a full semester on how to not let scandalous photos and videos into the hands of money whoring perverts.

The most optimal solution would not be to make them at all, because even if the photos never make it to the press, we all now know they exist, and it makes for a ridiculously exhausting time trying to block any and all images that may be conjured up.

Kate knew her paranoia and insecurity had driven William away.

And by midsummer, they had reconciled. But I would like to point out something interesting, for those people interested in the more salacious side of royal gossip: Every time William actually or allegedly screwed around with other girls, Kate always took him back.
