    So sad. They probably got them cheap from a friend of the mother.

    Looking at the first picture taken by Kate's dad, I don't agree with the criticism of this shot. The printing/representation isn't great, but he has caught a great moment, especially with Lupo the cocker spaniel. Great shot well done and may have been stronger in black & white.

    Life as we know it surely has come to an end. Aaaargh... Normal baby pictures rather than gold and ermine-framed portraits. How tacky!

    Folks should leave those kids alone and let them enjoy their family as they choose. There will be plenty of opportunity for pomp and ceremony if or when they get voted in as the next reighning royal.

    Well .......

    William or George might very well get "voted in", if there are any abdications involved.

    Ahhh, but according to wikipedia, the Surname King may not necessarily be because of Royalty:

    So, you're safe!

    I was going to post something very rude, but I thought better of it because I don't want to end up in The Tower :whistling:

    The wrong thing is they are not normal persons but they want to be my neighbor or someone from the park. It seems to me they want to be our friends like all the arabic British bbc people. They cant be friend of anyone at the end , if they are normal people they would be need to speak on Syria at least but all we see this red haired idiots diana remained smiling teeths.

    I don't think royalty or religion should interfere with polotics.
