    I thought he looks a lot like my patient who came in for hair-growth treatment. Mmm and the girl with him looks like the new ptincess. She was here for hair removal treatment. Looked like them and sounded like them.

    Prince William, my sole thought for you would be to always remember what your Mother withstood from your family and your father, and be sure to support your wife in any and all matters. You did, after all, fall in love with her. Be there for her. Always talk honestly and with respect with her.

    Don't talk about putting smiles on the faces of the less privileged when this ridiculous spectacle is costing in excess of £20m. The amount of philanthropy that could result from that kind of money boggles the imagination... all for a wedding between two people – You've got to be kidding me.

    99.9% of the world honestly doesn't care about this. All of the money and attention would definitely be better spent elsewhere, on something meaningful.

    I am so happy for both Kate and William. I hope they can be happy and live a relatively normal life. I really hope this one lasts. I'll be watching the wedding and wishing them all the best.

    Yes. At St. Andrews. A few times. Once, he was leaving polo practice and I was at a canoe session and he stepped on my glasses and broke them. He didn't realize it. But it's a story I tell everyone!

    My younger brother and I met Prince William at the L.A. airport where he was about to board a flight to N.Z. for the Rugby championships, 3-4 years ago.

    My bro and I first spotted him, as we sat inside the A & W Restaurant where we saw him being escorted along a corridor by his bodyguards on the second level above. When we went to ask Air New Zealand if it was really Prince William, they confirmed it was indeed, so we stood at his gate waiting for him. He already delayed the flight because he was the last person to board, but as he walked passed my bro and I, he stopped to smile and say a brief hi, nodding his head courteously as he boarded.

    If I could say anything to him at all now, I would ask if he still remembers me as I was maybe the tiniest woman in the world he may have met being slightly over 2 ft. tall weighing 29lbs and wheelchair bound. Not focusing so much on that aspect I just wish him a most wonderful day and life with his new bride-to-be, Kate.

    May you both be blessed with much peace, love and joy...I think Diana would be proud as she watches over William and Harry alike, especially smiling down on William!

    Thank you for your time and for reading this. Take care,

    Love Elaine

    To Prince William and Katherine, Congratulations to you both, and always remember to pray before you both go to bed, never go to bed angry with each other. May God keep you both together forever. Love you both, God's Blessings.

    My friend's brother was playing rugby against Eton (his school) so I saw him running around on the field. He was also at a ball I attended at some nightclub in London. Both times I had friends point him out.

    Seen him twice but never officially met.

    I wish people in the US would stop asking if I know the Royal family or if I was invited to the wedding. Not everyone from the UK knows them.

    Oh you're American, do you know Barack Obama?? Do you know Donald Trump?

    I not only met him ,I instructed over a assault course at the royal tournament in 1994.I was the first soldier to meet him after he had just been shown around the Navy exhibitions. He seemed to really enjoy the experience.Later his BodyGuard thanked me for treating him like any other little boy and not a royal prince,which the navy had done.He wanted to go again,which he did!!
