Kate's friends and post-wedding life

By Autumn Brewington

Remember when we said we were looking forward to lots of royal stories ahead of Kate Middleton's birthday? Her 29th birthday is this weekend, and the articles are rolling in.

The Telegraph has a piece on both the people populating Kate's inner circle (which cites help from the February Tatler article) and the lifestyle changes looming after the April wedding. Don't expect insights from friends on the record. "The waiting game, which seemed so long to observers, has weeded out any so-called friends who spilled details about Kate or the courtship," the article notes. According to one "social commentator": "Of all my friends' daughters and nieces who know Kate and William, you always know who the real friends are as if you ask anything they just smile and say, 'Yes, it's so sweet', then clam up."

Also, about our last post: We just want to note that there's a point to this wording from the Daily Mail: "Kate Middleton will be the first Windsor bride for 48 years to arrive at the church in a car rather than a glass coach." Not a church, or any royal bride, but "the church," a reference to Westminster Abbey, where Princess Alexandra arrived by car in 1963 but later royal brides, such as Princess Anne and Sarah Ferguson, arrived by horse-drawn coach. When Sophie Rhys-Jones married Prince Edward in 1999, she arrived at St. George's Chapel by car.
