Palace posts images of young Kate Middleton

Now we see the benefits of an official royal wedding Web site!

Royal officials have updated the site devoted to the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton, posting photos from the Middleton family albums -- there are charming images of Kate from childhood, but the main attraction is the pic of Kate and William the day they graduated from the University of St. Andrews -- and a biography of the royal bride-to-be.

So, what didn't we know about Kate Middleton? Lots, apparently. Such as that "at the age of two, Catherine moved with her family to Amman in Jordan, where her father worked for two and a half years. Catherine attended a nursery school in Amman from the age of three." There's the factoid that she and Prince William both spent part of their pre-university "gap year" in Chile. Her hobbies include "recreational sports such as hill walking, tennis, swimming, sailing, and the arts such as photography and painting."

According to the Associated Press, the royal wedding Web site has attracted nearly 2 million visits since its launch last week.

I couldn't 4 references to Kate Middleton on WaPos main web page. Good grief. Give it a rest already. This is not news.

It was in the Arts and Living page, not the top news page. Perhaps you should stop reading this section altogether. Pity that considering how pithy this story was, that you took precious time out of your busy day to write something negative on what is for most, the happiest times of their lives.

Cute. She'll look beautiful at the wedding (but he won't!). :-)

BTW, all her videos are being collected in an archive here:

"Catherine attended a nursery school in Amman from the age of three."

"Certain British commentators on various radio and TV news shows have claimed Ms. Middleton is not really an English citizen but is instead a Muslim born in Jordan. They promise to picket the royal wedding unless she provides a copy of her birth certificate proving she is eligible to be queen of England."

Just kidding!!!
