^Freya those ceremonies have historic precedent going back many years - even centuries  the investiture of a PoW really is not historically a tradition and it could ignite protest from the Welsh

I would think they'll do something but not as elaborate as was done for Charles

KF - since Charles funds all the work of the two Princes and his D in L he could get them "in line" anytime he wants to - he need not wait til he becomes King.

I think it may be Andy who is gotten in line.

The spoiled brat Prince Petulant is one nasty piece of work.

I would put money on Charles having an Investiture for William. They still perform the Garter Ceremony and other award ceremonies so I cannot see why they would not do this.

on other royal sites the claim is made that Will did not attend the state dinner either -

I don't think Kate wanted to be anywhere near food, the smell, look or taste of it. She missed the lunch due to this and banquets are especially lengthy affairs because of the speeches, toasts etc.
There'll be plenty of other state banquets for her to attend in the future.

While Charles will relinquish his interests and such, I do think that Charles will get his family in line. I think cutting the York princesses is inevitable. The only reason that extended family were supported is because they were expected in time to make foreign matches, so supporting them wasn't considered too big of a deal. Yet, since the princesses show no interest in marrying a foreign prince, I do think that it's best to make Andrew support them and make them become more independent. Time for the princesses to make their own way in the world and whether they like it or not. Charles has the right idea in this area, I will give him that much. As for Camilla, I think she'll remain Princess Consort whether she likes it or not. Kate will become Princess of Wales, but I am sure that she'll live it to the full, but again, William will be controlling the purse strings and Kate will have to ask for money for anything she wants.

Kate looks medicated for sure. Dopey eyes and the coldness between her and William is striking. Back to wearing coat dresses, and clutching the three month foam bump in place  spy

You could tell she was trying to smile and get him to smile back, but he regrettably looked back at her in a nasty way.

Kate went to this last year too - and that the two of them do separate engagements has happened before - especially since she did this last year and seems to have an especial interest

I do not like the dress - too fussy - too much thigh exposed - but of course the color will lead to insane speculation that she is having a boy
she looks happy and healthy -

They did do separate engagements, but as a member of the royal family, she should be at that state banquet in full gown and tiara. She shows up at the afternoon appearance, but is oddly pawned off to an awards appearance while everyone else is at the state banquet in full gear.

This is like going to the afternoon graduation boozefest, but not being allowed to go to Prom.

As for the thigh high cut, she's trying way too hard to come across as sexy.

I do not think an investiture is necessary - I believe it is automatic - many previous PoW's never had an investiture - Charles was unusual.

I also think he automatically gets the Duchy.


I wonder if they will do an investiture since it is not necessary - maybe something much less elaborate than Charles had.  I suspect they will be sensitive to issues around cost.

No, most Princes of Wales haven't had an investiture. I think they may very well be sensitive to the Welsh Independence movement also.

I cannot believe she would look at her own husband that way at a state event, right in front of the President and First Lady of Singapore.
