I saw William recently and he is so happy. They just enjoy being together at home. No one bothers them in Anglesey, there are few paparazzi, and they love the countryside. Their friends insist they have not forgotten how to have fun, however, and at the recent wedding of their close friend Alice St.
That said, their busy schedule means they have to cut back on their social engagements, and at a Boodles-sponsored charity boxing ball in central London last fall, Pippa was overheard lamenting that the couple rarely get to go out. Despite admitting to being nervous, Kate who had elocution lessons before her wedding day received a standing ovation for the speech she had written herself. In June she took children from the Art Room charity to see a production of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe in a circus tent on the grounds of Kensington Gardens.
Kate is said to have loved the production and made a point of meeting the cast afterward. Also in June she put on her jeans and Wellies to join a group of children from the King Solomon Academy primary school—an inner-city school—for a camping trip to Kent.

Charles and Camilla invited Kate to move into Clarence House while William was away, but she insisted on staying at Nottingham Cottage, on the grounds of Kensington Palace, where she and William moved after the wedding in July , with just her two female protection officers for company. She tends to the flower beds in the small front-yard garden herself, and apart from the services of a part-time housekeeper there is no staff.
As in Anglesey, Kate does the cooking and can be spotted stocking up at the nearby Waitrose supermarket on Kensington High Street. Within the confines of the palace, William and Kate are protected from the paparazzi, but in the heart of Kensington they are more exposed.
Earlier this summer Kate was photographed playing with Lupo in Kensington Gardens, a public park next to Kensington Palace. The adorable pictures of Kate in her jeans, calling out to her dog as he chased an empty packet of potato chips in the wind, made the front pages of the newspapers the next day.
Despite the intrusions, the duchess loves spending time in London—and more so than her country-oriented husband does.
Whenever she is in town she heads to the Harbour Club, in Chelsea, where she has a tennis coach and plays with Pippa. She also swims in the pool at Buckingham Palace. But most of her time is taken up with work, and her days are scheduled around meetings with charities, briefings with courtiers at St. On weekends, William and Kate regularly host shooting parties at Wood Farm, one of the cottages at Sandringham.

But it is not just Kate who has been invited to the estate. Although Charles was not there at the time, he generously arranged for his gillie hunt attendant to act as guide for the Middletons when they went shooting and for his personal chauffeur, Tim Williams, to be on call. Kate is exceptionally close to her parents, Carole and Michael, and her siblings, Pippa and James, as is William. The Middletons were invited to ride alongside the royal barge at the Diamond Jubilee Pageant, and for the second year running they were also guests of the Queen at Royal Ascot.
Carole was photographed roaring with laughter as she chatted with the recently recovered Prince Philip he had suffered a bladder infection following the jubilee in the Royal Box, and once again the Middletons joined the royal carriage procession at the world-famous racecourse. It was quite unprecedented. On Finals Day he generously handed his ticket to his tennis-mad sister-in-law, Pippa, so that she could watch the center-court action with her sister.
It was just one of the perks Pippa has gotten used to as the sister of the future Queen. This October she will publish her debut book, Celebrate, a party-planning bible which she has written herself and for which she reportedly received a six-figure advance from Penguin Books. After quitting her part-time job at Table Talk, a London catering company, where she worked for the past few years, to focus on the book, she has now set her sights on starting a party-planning business of her own. Just weeks before the jubilee celebrations, Pippa found herself at the center of a media storm after she was photographed being driven around Paris in a convertible Audi by Romain Rabillard, a year-old lawyer who pointed a fake gun at a photographer following them.

The episode provoked a frenzy in the British tabloids, but Kate stood loyally by her sister. Carole, always a calm head in heated situations, advised her younger daughter to keep a low profile, and when she did re-emerge at the Diamond Jubilee Pageant she was smiling, impeccably groomed in a conservative nautical-themed navy-and-white Orla Kiely suit.

It seemed all had been forgiven. When she split from Alex Loudon, her long-term boyfriend, last year, Pippa complained that she felt hunted by the paparazzi.
diapegerhacar.cf When George joined the Middletons on their skiing trip in April, it appeared they were together, although Pippa has insisted that they are just friends. Those close to her say she still holds a torch for Alex, and in late June she was photographed leaving his West London home at seven a. Meanwhile, William and Kate also have a new home they will be moving into next year.
With the declining health of the Duke of Edinburgh, William is fully aware that he will be expected to take on more duties alongside Charles in the near future. Aides point out that, due to her position, she cannot accept freebies, even though bags of designer clothes and handbags are sent to the palace daily.
Kate continues to decline the services of a royal dresser, preferring instead to shop for herself.

Her mother, Carole, also regularly buys frocks and accessories for Kate out of her own pocket and can often be seen snapping up designer items from Moda Rosa, a small boutique in Arlesford. But the duchess is not a designer snob. I have seen her in Topshop and T. Royal commentator Juliet Ridden told Nine News Australia that Middleton was able to handle the press and media scrutiny very well.
Both Prince William and Prince Harry are protective of their wives and their privacy after what happened to their mother, the late Princess Diana. And there was one instance before the duke and duchess were married in which William thought the paparazzi went too far when they chased his then-girlfriend around in her vehicle. He wants, more than anything, for it to stop. Miss Middleton should, like any other private individual, be able to go about her everyday business without this kind of intrusion.
