Prince and his girlfriend to 'come out' on first public date

By Nathan Yates, Royal Correspondent

PRINCE William and his girlfriend Kate Middleton are to step out together at an official public occasion for the first time.

They are planning to "come out" as a couple after becoming frustrated with the secrecy surrounding their relationship.
Exciting, eh?

Here's some more from this morning's Mirror.

A Clarence House insider said last night: "William has grown weary of the cloak-and-dagger operation surrounding his girlfriend.

"He wants her to be acknowledged as an important part of his life. He is planning to appear in public with her as a statement of intent and commitment to her.

He has lost patience with his girlfriend being kept hidden, as if the family is ashamed of her.
Aaaaaaaah, eh?

Then there's this from this morning's Mail.

Is Kate getting ready to join the Firm?


Daily Mail 08:49am - 20th September 2005

Kate Middleton: joining the Queen's 'Firm'?

Prince William's girlfriend has had a series of private meetings with the Queen, it has been revealed.

They include two intimate dinners in recent months - raising speculation that Kate Middleton, 23, is being groomed to join the Royal Family.

Sources say the Queen, who is very fond of her grandson, has developed a 'warm and relaxed' relationship with his girlfriend, regarded in court circles as a future royal bride.
Starting to sound sort of serious, eh?
'The fact that Kate has met with the Queen several times and has dined with her privately should not be underestimated,' an official said.

'The Queen takes a loving interest in her grandson and heir and she is delighted he is so happy with Kate.

Oooooooooh, eh?

Okay, okay -- I know. I'm a terrible tease.

So grab a glimpse of this -- then I'll let you loose on the links below.

The claims about her meetings with the Queen come after the Mail revealed she had been secretly receiving media training with senior Clarence House officials.

William is said to be keen for her to be well prepared for the inevitable onslaught of press attention. One of the key lessons has been on how to handle the photographers who have started to follow her.

The Palace's approach shows courtiers have learned from the mistakes of the past.

Other royal newcomers - notably William's mother Diana - have complained about a lack of guidance.

Elaine, Kiwi and anonymous,

Glad to see you've all entered into the 'spirit' of things. :^)

Well, I mean, we've all got to lighten up a little, sometimes. Eh?

Speaking of 'lightening up' it's about time the House of Windsor came out of the Victorian era. I wish them well - who knows maybe Kate will even get a job and not turn into a clothes horse!

* it's about time the House of Windsor came out of the Victorian era.


I don't think there's much chance of that till at least Charles has had his 'day' - jeeze, talk about old hat & fuddy-dudy.

If there's any hope at all of ever getting them closer to 'this planet' - it'll definitely have to wait for William's 'turn' - but even then -- who knows?

Thanks for this breather, Richard.

Do you think the Queen will ever abdicate in favor of Charles?

I honestly can't see that ever happening.
