I doubt either of them are reading Mumsnet though, unless Kate has something to tell us grin

I love a royal wedding, me.

Who will she wear, daahhling?!

It's nice to hear some good news for a change smile

oh god spare me who gives?

Mummiehunnie Tue 16-Nov-10 16:53:42

He gave her Diana's engagement ring! I find that surprising!

LynetteScavo Tue 16-Nov-10 16:57:10

I'm not surprised, he adored his mother.

And that ring cost a bloody fortune. I'm pleased to see he's not wasting tax payers money on any more bling! wink

I would have thought it would be better to reset it, as his parents marriage was not ended by his mothers death!

ChazsBrilliantAttitude Tue 16-Nov-10 17:30:34

Will the bride's parents pay for the wedding?

Is she going to be Queen? Or just Princess? (and why do I care....)

TechLovingDad Tue 16-Nov-10 20:52:39

What made me laugh was the coverage today. Natasha Kaplinsky "The royals have learned a lot since Diana's death".

The media fucking haven't, still hounding everyone with their cameras.

I honestly couldn't care less about this. Like they cared about my wedding.

<vomits> Excuse me

I do need to fit into my frock though.

LynetteScavo Tue 16-Nov-10 21:05:05

Math...she will become queen when William becomes king. Which will be after the queen and prince Charles have both carced it, so no time soon.

Couldn't give a flying fuck TBH

Would you want an second hand engagement ring knowing the history of the subsequent marriage.

Is this Prince Williams idea of thrift in the present economy?

I am a bit sceptical that this is being pushed forward as some good "feel good" news before we are hit the sucker punch of more job losses.

How much is this going to cost the tax payer or the Middletons.

Personally l think they should just secretly elope to Gretna Green if they want to get married and save us for months of Royal garbage getting forced down their throats.

Anyway congrats to waity Katie ( caught her man at last) and good old King Billy (to be )

I kind of feel for the girl, imagine she was posting on here?

I waited for 8 years to get engaged and I got his mum's engagement ring (his parents divorced and after his dad cheated his mum cheated)... I gave up my youth, I gave up my career, I spent years molding myself to be the perfect woman and now I am being called lazy, ugly and all sorts on internet forum's....

I wish her well x

KateMiddletonsMum Tue 16-Nov-10 21:28:30

Are you fucking kidding, we will not be soiling putting our hands in our designer clad pockets to pay for a wedding when the public can pay.
Darlings.

Mummiehunnie Tue 16-Nov-10 21:29:19

fab post!

TechLovingDad Tue 16-Nov-10 21:30:03

Yeah, like she posts here.

Mummiehunnie Tue 16-Nov-10 21:35:27

too busy preparing party pieces!

KateMiddletonsMum Tue 16-Nov-10 21:39:38

I may have to learn some more ladylike language.
The Internet teaches one such peculiar words.

LynetteScavo Tue 16-Nov-10 21:56:54

KatesMum...I bet you are well chuffed you forked out for private education now, aren't you.

To all the posters who say they send their DC to independant schools so they can socialise with a certain type of person, I take back all my haffaws and snorts. It's so paid off for KatesMum...look her daughter will --probably,-- if the marriage lasts become queen. I think that top trumps becoming priminister, even.

poolet Tue 16-Nov-10 21:58:16

I am underwhelmed by the news.

Tootlesmummy Tue 16-Nov-10 21:59:55

Does anyone really care!? I'm already completely bored and it's only day 1 of their engagement, what the hell is it going to be like in 6 months......
