i think this story is a very bad signal for them both. i remember in the charles thread, a poster (am i allowed to say the poster's name without being warned?) said that charles was not sure of diana being the girl for him. now, william is saying the same thing, and allegedly told the Queen and Prince Phillip that he did not love kate enough to marry. this looks like a bad omen for another bad divorce if they do get married.
taking into consideration that kate too loves the limelight/popularity, does not have much substance and breeding to keep personal problems to herself if a divorce comes along. in short, she is one of those women nowadays to do everything to get them a rich husband and be trophy wives and nothing more ( shades of mary of denmark).
now, i know kate kept mum about their relationship up until now, but i do really think that she's doing it to get the ring and the crown --- maybe learned it from the successful commoner princesses who did not talk until the ring got there? she must have known that she still has a shot to get there as william is almost like Frederick, who is not sure of anything (can be persuaded to do something?), does not know what they really want. how else can her lack of personal improvement careerwise can be explained? she just lays there and wait for william to anytime whisk her off anywhere.
