The body is an umbrella organisation set up by the US government which brings together different service charities to support the re-integration of servicemen and women into civvy street.

The fawning by LA media over these two was way over the top...
I think they are good kids I hate photo ops like this
Too bad they did not come next week end now that would be a hoot
They are good kids and they are both men. Williams wife is is just drop dead beautiful and a commoner. The fact the she is a commoner is good.
Yes and I bet it is driving Obama crazy!
Good. See ya. Time to go. Get lost. Sick to death of hearing about royalty.
This country, these days is no place for 'royalty' to be touring in limousines.
The Fact that Kate is NOT royalty is good for a number of reasons, not the least of which being fresh Genetics into the Royal Blood line, that will greatly reduce any complications due to Europeans royals all being closely related.
I agree. So far as I’ve ever heard, they are fine young men in spite of all the royal trappings. And, I’d heard they were in Canada a while back but didn’t even know they were in the US, so not so sure about all this over-indulgent coverage. It may have been confined to the LA media market that doesn’t affect me (or most of us).
He was born to represent his country. Most of us have no idea what it’s like to have so little choice over our own destiny. I read once- when he was younger - that he told his brother how lucky Harry was that this burden wouldn’t fall on him. I’m glad he found a good mate and looks like they won’t end up in the Eurotrash pile.
Seems to me they are both handling it quite well.
Seems like the smart thing would be to skip Charles.
God bless both of them.
If you can get a girl like Kate Middleton without it...why bother?
He could get one and send it to me
They are both splendid spokespersons for their country and the British Commonwealth and are worth their weight in gold. Who do we have to compare with their style, class, sophistication and elegance, someone who can draw our nation together in feeling a sense of pride.

Ditto. She’s beautiful, he’s handsome, they are young and in love, and life is good. They represent their country exceedingly well, have grace and style, they look great together, and cut the royalty rubbish. I’d rather have their brand of royalty than ours (Hollywood trash) anyday.
“and cut the royalty rubbish”
That’s directed at the royalty haters on this thread, not you. You think just like me. Hence the “ditto”.

Are you talking about a girl like Kate Middleton or a toupe?
I think it is an insult to all Americans that the royal couple did not pay a visit to our royal couple in the White House. /s/
Review the recent events...... the slight, the insult, came from the queen. She did not include the Wookie on the wedding invite list.
Wookies seethe when insulted and never forget
“”Wookies seethe when insulted and never forget””
You must have been asleep when they were hosted by the Queen on their trip to GB in May....
“”Too bad they did not come next week end now that would be a hoot””
What’s next weekend?
I think they are a great couple and very easy on the eyes.. Kate is going to become as adored as Diana was.
William got a lot of his moms features.
The fawning by LA media over celebrities in general is way over the top.
I actually *sorta* met Diana in a very small shop on Gloucester Road (South Kensington - London), soon after she was engaged to Charles, not yet married.
I was with an American friend in the same small shop. She was buying chocolate, had a body guard waiting outside the shop for her. I first glanced at her, then said to my American friend, “she looks like lady Diana Spencer”. She heard me, and threw me a look & a smile.. another woman who was also in the small shop then looked at me and pointed at her own finger, suggesting look at her (Diana’s finger, she is wearing “the” engagement ring, she *is* Diana..) and then whispered to me “go speak to her, ask her something”.. I wasn’t game. A few mins later, my friend & I stood behind her in the queue to pay. She turned and looked at me, smiled again and said: “forgot something, you first”, then she asked the shopkeeper to gift wrap the chocolate box. My friend & I paid & left the shop. I was a bit stunned, but didn’t think too much of it at the time, because living in London meant one could often see many ‘famous people’ in the West End.
I’ve never met nor run into Kate Middleton. But, I can tell you that Diana, even back then, that is before she became ‘Princess of Wales’, made a distinct impression on me. When I saw her in that small shop, she was very tall, wore a long dark green overcoat, red trousers, and her face was absolutely radiant... flawless skin that really made an impression on me. Kate is cute & pretty, but Diana was a classic beauty. And, Kate still has to learn from her late mother-in-law how to fight the wind up her dress. But, I’m very happy for both Wills & her bride. He obviously reminds many of his late mother.
Sorry, meant Wills and “his bride”.
