Here they are in the Blue Mountains in NSW:

Not doing anything particularly spectacular or, for them, out of the routine. But don't they do a good job? Aren't they terrific?

In both Oz and UK we have all these slimy, hypocritical, sinister politicians... and then you get Wills and Kate just going out there and Spreading The Love.

It's so nice to see people just doing something unqualifiedly positive, don't you think? What a pleasant change. Hats off to you, Sir, Sir, and Ma'am!

...Well, this could be the troll of the week ;-)

Not sure if this is sarcasm or patriotism for our Royals.

I like the Royal Family and yes they do fek all and get loads of money from the state.

But then they are a royal family with a fairly lively history behind them which has shaped quite a bit of the world today. Not bad for a load of in-breads with a blood-lust, now only limited to shooting endangered species.

However today, the royals are probably our best marketing took for UK PLC. I'd imagine that this country makes quite a bit more than we spend on clothing and feeding our royal family both directly with royal visits and indirectly selling kitch mugs and Typhoon jets.

And say what you like, this batch of young royals have done a lot better than their parents, Charles, Diana, Fergey, Andy and Eddy.

Still on the fence with Harry but he was young and is growing out of fancy dress, but at least he has injected new DNA into the gene-pool from his dad.

Not sarcasm at all. Though I was surprised, when I read it over, how easily it could be read as sarcastic. UKC habits die hard :-)

Not sure it sounded sarcastic but you sound like Daily Mail reading 40+ leather trousered posh bird.

Apparently being born into into it makes you more worthy, less venal and slimy. Thanks for the update.

I can guarantee that if you paid me, my wife and kids to go on an all expenses luxury trip around New Zealand and Australia, we would do an equally good job. We are both qualified because I am also thinning on top and my wife has a lovely smile and similar hair to Kate plus our youngest is also very cute and unlike George and smile on demand! And we would offer better value because we would be more than happy to throw in a few high profile media interviews for free!

I'm no defender of the Royals and it's fun to joke about Harry's parentage but there's a definite stamp of the Battenburgs about him (probably the yellow and pink colour)

That's what he wants you to think, it's a uber troll.

The clue is, nobody could get that excited about pictures of celebs on holiday.

Tim is definitely a royalist, he gets very touchy with people suggesting that being born in to one particular family perhaps isn't the best way to choose a head of state. I suppose it is questioning God's will.

In reply to Tim Chappell:
I think it's a shame that given past treatment of the Royals by the press, Kate has to go around being the quiet Royal wife so she doesn't draw any flack (except for anything to do with her appearing to not be a person in her own right).

It seems a funny kind of life to me, to be in the media spot light and to just go around being friendly and smiling. In a non judgemental way, somehow superficial.

Who are these Wills, Kate and George of whom you speak? I can only assume you mean William Arthur Philip Louis, Prince of Wales, Duke of Cambridge, Earl of Strathearn and Baron Carrickfergus; Catherine Elizabeth, Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn and Lady Carrickfergus; and George Alexander Louis, Prince George of Cambridge. Or some such.

As yet, the lazy f*ckers haven't managed to visit their earldom in Scotland.

They spent enough time up here shagging in the back of his mini before they were married. No need for them to come back now. (or ever)

That mini passed me when I was cycling to St Andrews once! No sign of Her Royal Loveliness, mind you, and Wills seemed to have his hands fully on the job.


...Sorry? Yes, of course I do it deliberately :-)

I say! That's rotten disloyal talk! Take it back, you unspeakable cad!

I gather they'll be in Crieff and Gleneagles next month. And I for one shall jolly well go and wave the bunting!

Unconfirmed rumours. There's way too much tidying up to be done before they come here. We've invited them to start our Marathon in June, but we haven't had a reply yet.

While my head is anti-monarchy, my heart is pretty ambivalent. I think William seems a decent sort; hard to be negative about him. I wouldn't want his life.

I'd love his life. I'm always slightly bewildered when the press describe their six week, tax payer funded, escorted, flunky-accompanied, everything-taken-care off uber-premier-class trips around the most exotic parts of the world as 'gruelling'

Ah, hold on, I thought I was back on the "Cynical" thread again

Not so much gruelling as a pain in the arse with no privacy and being surrounded by sycophants whispering in reverential tones.

I feel slightly disgusted with myself for posting a link from the sun...but here goes...

"ahead of what promises to be a gruelling three-week tour of New Zealand and Australia next month, "


I just think the media's understanding of the word 'gruelling' is a bit different to people like you and me, is all.
