She seems to be look at the lady with the brunette hair.  Rebecca?  Random brunette threat?

Either way, it's an unpleasant look and one she specialises in.

Can someone fill me in please, it's been so thrilling I can't stay awake following the 'whirlwind tour'   Snore
Has the woman who told Waity to wrap the presents been sued/fired/'disappeared' yet?

The whole trip was filled with these unpleasant looks and glaring faces.

I am genuinely shocked that this was Kate's first visit to New York. I hope I don't sound like an ugly American because it's not that we're the greatest place in the world there are lots of places to go and enjoy but it is a little weird. New York City! Don't most rich people travel a lot? When I visited years ago I was in Bendel's and ran into several mother daughters from other countries. Really well dressed women on a shopping trip or with dad on his business. The Middletons only go to Mustique or Ibiza? She could have visited with school but didn't do that either, huh. She's a mystery that Kate. Just wanted William I guess.

I've always found it odd, too. I'm an American and far from rich but I've managed to visit London (among other places in Europe). I actually had to fund these trips myself and work to get the money to do so!  Laugh bounce

Only 46% of Americans have passports, against 70% of british so more Brits travel I want to go to New York was going to but had to cancel because of my mother's illness.  So I don't see why it is so unsurprising that this was her first visit.

What was the deal with William's speech at that St. Andrews dinner? i.e. you leave St. Andrews either married or an alcoholic. Fortunately I ended up married....
First of all, what an incredibly insulting thing to say about leaving as an alcoholic! That makes the school look really good, doesn't it? I have a feeling that William thinks he is just a laugh a minute. He has the charm of an artichoke. Further, he did not leave St. Andrews married. He had his bedmate in Kate and chased after other women and then married Kate years later. What a ridiculously stupid thing for him to say at this dinner!

OMG....I missed that....my thought was that these yahoos hardly speak for the educational value of St. A's but this....he said this???  Yikes 

To say the tour didn't raise money is false the dinner raised over two million pounds

Hmmm...raised money for a wealthy private university while wasting local resources and tax payer dollars by using NYPD and an ambulance for these 3 days. Too bad that money couldn't go to NYC inner schools, art programs, etc. JMO

So what is this "statistic based on?
England has 56 million populous v. the United States @ 300 million? The U.S. is enormous compared to the size of England. Americans travel a great deal so can going from east coast to west coast mileage wise be comparable from hopping from England over to France? Which is @ 21 miles (4 kilometers). Heck my commute one way is 114 miles! Just wanted to establish what this statistic is based on as opposed to the impression of another smug sounding comment that Americans are mainly considered ignorant (along with several other rude suggestions)- which is what has been the general tone and consensus during the so-called "tour" by their supporters.
As an American no one person is better than another nor is one country better than another. All of our history/actions have plenty of proof we all have faults. I guess I am fed up with hearing such condescending smug remarks against Americans this past week- as if we are incapable of even bathing or dressing appropriately. The proof is in the footage/photos of the not-so dynamic duo.

p.s. Considering Waity is allegedly from a "wealthy" family and was bone-idle for @ a decade or so- one would imagine she would have included NYC as one of the places to visit prior to her freebie she got this past week complements of the taxpayers/donations.

Hiya, brunette ex-history of art graduate here with my unwanted opinions.

I've not yet been to New York, but I have done pretty much every European city which has amazing art, museums, architecture, etc.

I guess as Kate and family like shopping fun and Kate is supposed to be arty, a mini-break to NY seems a logical thing they would have done.

Ah well.

Good point, PaulaB.  Maybe US citizens can think of the value of travelling outside the US, i.e.,  having a US passport, as opposed to travelling within their nation.  Maybe they can't.  Maybe travelling within the States is just like travelling throughout Europe?  That would make it nice and simple.

I see from your flag that you are in the UK.  Have you lived abroad/travelled a lot (if I may ask)?

Isn't this basically calling PaulaB smug, condescending etc. etc. indirectly?  Shouldn't we just ask for the origin of the statistic without all the other stuff?  I don't see how the rules are applied consistently.
