The shoes, we won't talk about. But the bracelet we will. K-Middy has been wearing a £10 bracelet - the proceeds of which go to the East Anglia Children's hospice of which she is now a patron. You can buy them here, but from what I can tell, they will only deliver to addresses in the UK. Anyway, we've been talking today about when Kate will become Queen Catherine and I dug out some quotes from Christopher Anderson, who is the author of the book 'William and Kate' - who explained last year how it's all going to shake out. He says the Queen's going to abdicate, soon, hand the throne to the tampon King Prince Charles and then it will go to William before he's forty or in his mid-forties - which is in around ten years time.
Anderson reveals: "They are more than ready. He's been training his entire life. The queen used to have Prince William over for tea at Windsor Castle at the beginning of age five on a weekly basis to give him a tutorial in kinging, as it were. So he has been getting on-the-job training his entire life. And obviously Kate Middleton is getting it now. What is going to change the monarchy not so much what the -- to change the monarchy not so much what the Windsors taught him but what Diana taught him. She took him and Harry to McDonald's, amusement parks, homeless centers and aids clinics and close exposed them to the real world." Does the queen like Kate Middleton? "Absolutely. This isn't by accident. This is a very shrewd woman, and I have to say this in a complementary and positive way. She set out to win the hearts and minds of the will family. She cozied up to Charles and Camilla. Even though she is seriously allergic to horses she never missed a polo match of Charles' or William's or Harry's. She has made the effort I think to win their confidence, and that's a major part of this job that is before her." Is the queen likely to step aside and Prince Charles become the king or not? Does it the dynamics watch is going on within the royal family? "This is a big scoop I've earthed, and that is the same sources that tied me off this wedding a year and a half ago exactly when it would happen have been telling me for the first time, the queen is considering retirement. And I have to tell you why. Because she is facing an unusual and unique set of circumstances. She is the oldest monarch by far she has surpassed Queen Victoria, three years ago in age. She could live to be 101 like the queen mother. If she does that, Charles won't ascend to the throne until he's 80. And that would mean William would not ascend to the throne until he was 70. That would be a catastrophe for the monarchy. Three quarters of the British people want William and Kate on the throne as soon as possible, not Charles and Camilla. So the queen is for the first time behind the scenes seriously considering the possibility, which she had never done before, of stepping down to make this -- to put Charles on the throne for a short period of time and allow William perhaps in his mid-40s, to become king." Have the Brits warmed up to Prince Charles? What about Prince William, what do people think of him? "Absolutely, the British people love William. Every popularity poll there he comes out on top. They love Kate as well now. She has won them over as well. Camilla has always been viewed with suspicion and disdain by the British people because they believe that she broke up the marriage of Diana, and of course Diana occupies a special place in their hearts as well. Charles has kind of worn them down. He's a fixture. He has proved a loving father to both William and Harry. So I think in the end they are willing to see him at least be on the throne for a while. It is not like they have a choice. This idea they have the queen can decide who is going to succeed her. She can't. By law Charles is going to be king and he's not stepping aside for anybody. He has waited for this job longer than anybody in history and he's going to get it. But the question becomes when and for how long he will be willing to reign?" Princess Diana was a challenge for the queen, so it will be interesting to see whether the queen and Kate enjoy a good relationship. "Kate has done everything asked of her and more to be accepted by the royal family. And boy, the queen is obviously breathing a huge sigh of relief because her own children have been by and large a huge, huge disappointment at last in their romantic lives. It's been one sleazy scandal after another for 30 years. And I think that's not going to happen with Kate. I think she has never been the source of any controversy or scandal, never embarrassed William. In fact she has pulled him back from the brink of embarrassment and protected him many times. So I think the queen is grateful for that."
  Hm, it's a shame that by law Prince Charles WILL become King. It's a bit selfish, because no-one really wants him there, much does William want the job? and at least this way, he gets to enjoy married life and pop out a few sprogs first. Oh and finish his service in the RAF.

    The British public go on about welfare ‘scavengers’ and foreigners ‘taking their money/jobs’ yet they support the biggest parasites and they all forget that Charles has other siblings and that even the younger brother and his descendants are eligible long before the middle sister.

    As for the sham marriage, that’s exactly what it was, Dianna and Charles had an arranged marriage to produce ‘suitable’ heirs, the queen mother new he didn’t love Dianna and Dianna was aware of all the handling and underhanded goings on but was subject to them and couldn’t escape. Arranged marriages happen everywhere and it’s no wonder that most of the time the couples don’t love each other, it’s a business arrangement for property and titles. They only have to look ‘content’ in public – their parents think. The public shouldn’t be upset at him for being with Camilla but quite frankly no one needs these pampered leeches, no matter how likeable they are portrayed e.g. the celebs Will and Kate who are akin to Z-list celebs in Big Brother who are famous by association and nothing else, but in their case their association is high level status. They pretend to be nice but they and their villainous clique own most of the world and they don’t care if we see it, e.g. look at the ‘terrorists’ they invite to weddings and yet pretend to be enemies with them, because they know the public won’t really acknowledge their actions as they are too concerned with the glamorous side and false patriotism i.e. lording their overlords. These aren’t nice people, look how rulers become rulers and what it takes to stay that way, no matter how nice they pretend to be in public nowadays, it takes bloodlust, greed, ruthlessness and over ambition to be where they are and stay there. A little bit of tokenism ‘charity/causes’ and fine dressing doesn’t change that. At the same time though, if people were decent enough, they wouldn’t need rulers or figureheads.

      It’s Diana not Dianna. Also the Royal Family cost each taxpayer around 67p per year, hardly breaking the bank. I’m not particularly a Royalist but the amount they contribute to the economy via tourism is not insignificant I wouldn’t have thought.

      • LuxLisbon says:

        As for the rest of your post, it ain’t the 16th century, I can’t really imagine the Queen is maintaining her reign through bloodlust. What do you think she does? Holds hunting parties where the prey are the scroungers and foreigners you mention?

      • dapperdolly says:

        The Royals own significant shares and titles in all the big conglomerates, most of the land on the planet and any ‘charity’ work they do is an exchange, i.e. institutions where they can get controlling interests and positions (and at times publicity). All official media footage of them is heavily censored before being released. Any thing they ‘give ‘the economy via tourism is nothing in comparison to what they take especially the costs taken from business taxes associated with their tourism, 67p per head is but one avenue, not that they should take that either.

        As for her name, so sorry, I value substance of content over style so when a person makes a typo I wouldn’t bother to fix it since they probably know better and it adds nothing to the debate.

      • dapperdolly says:

        Sorry, forgot to add originally that the ‘Dianna’ typo is because I spell it that way for my own reasons but I can see how it would be viewed as wrong.

        Also, I’ve taken up more of your comments space than I was intending, apologies for that too.

    Talking about sham weddings, is William´s and Kate´s also an arranged relationship ?

  3. Amira says:

    No, but obvs Kate was groomed her entire life by her v. pushy society-climbing mother for the role!
    Am sure was not a coincidence that Kate happened to enrol at St Andrews uni on the same Art History course as William.

  4. dapperdolly says:

    16th century? Blood and mass energy rituals go on tho this day. Bohemian Grove? The way the military works worldwide? They don’t just go to war to be courageous, they don’t the good fights. They’re all fighting for money, land, assets – any humane reason is used much later as an excuse, once they’ve already got the details and paperwork sorted and new laws to bypass to give them more powers and who influences govts and military? Business, lobbyists, those with the money and who owns most of the wealth? Who meet up all over the world and celebrate together (e.g. Bohemian Grove) and pretend it’s something commonplace but then big things happen in politics like patriot acts and huge takeover over the food industries. Don’t kid yourself – these people’s ancestors got where they were through the worst possible methods and to be or stay successful you have to walk over the backs of others – and that’s still how it’s done. Like the Red Cross seeming to be helpful but the victims or the areas they’ve visited know better or the Gates Foundation being about eugenics and they admit it but people don’t acknowledge it.

    Yeh Yeh. Thanks to Che Guevera for the revolution. The monarchs are good for business (UK plc) and earn (even with all the nonentities and hangers on) more than they receive.
    They are an anachronism, culturally mundane and were very nearly rejected by the public following their poorly judged reaction to Diana’s death. Nothing lasts for ever but without them you are left with the politicians and few of us want that. They are harmless and a bit of overseas show biz icing.
