Prince William & Kate show off their royal dance skills in Tuvalu: adorable?

So many Duchess Kate and Prince William photos! Have you enjoyed the past week and a half worth of constant photos? I have. It’s not as exciting as their Canadian and American trip last year, but I think Kate has grown more comfortable and confident in her role, and that’s nice to see. In fact, if we’re judging Kate on how she behaved during this tour, and how there were absolutely NO reports about Kate pulling a diva act regarding her topless photos, I think she definitely comes out worlds ahead in public opinion. She did her job with grace, she didn’t leak any nasty comments, she didn’t act embarrassed or ashamed, and she seemed to enjoy herself at every stop during their tour.

Anyway, these are more photos of Kate and Will from the past few day – some are from their last hours on the Solomon Islands, and the rest are from their stop in Tuvalu. While in Tuvalu, Kate and Will donned grass skirts and flowered headpieces, and they danced with the Tuvaluan people in some kind of ceremony. There’s video of the dancing!

Is it just me or is Kate kind of cute and sexy dancer? She wasn’t really following the moves of the women around her, she was just kind of doing whatever she felt like, and it was adorable. William, on the other hand, looked like he was about to break out The Robot.

By the way, Kate’s long, peasant-style dress is Alice by Temperley. I would love this dress in shades of blue and white.

    They were both SO CUTE. It’s nice to see her being human.

  2. cw says:

    agreed about kate

    i’m starting to really not like william

    now i see just a spoiled little snot, a boy trying to act like a man, but still a bratty kid

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      Agreed; he’s not good w/ the public. And people are carrying them? The poor people….I doubt William is a good dancer; leave that to Harry.

      • jey says:

        agree. He thinks he deserves a different treatment from the one his citizens receive.
        British media are the most unrespectful and nasty in the world. Never heard a word from him or his relatives in defence of those (not only celebs, but even victims of terrorism or other crimes) whose intimacy has been violated by Murdoch media in the past years. And now he raises the privacy respect issue only because he’s involved. Not to mention he’s attacking a French magazine, that is far more respectful of people privacy than an average British tabloid. Too late, my dear.

    • johnnybadboytapia says:

      agreed, kate looked great she was having such a good time, you could’nt help but to smile. william does not seem to engage with her he seems almost bothered when she leaned over and was talking to him. I would like to see more chemistry more of a connection from them.

      • fairy godmother says:

        But, johnnybadboytapia

        The chemistry you speak of- would that not be a grave injustice of invading their saintly privacy?

    • tmbg says:

      I think William would be the type to sit in a dark, stuffy old library at home wearing a red smoking jacket, puffing on an old pipe and reading some dusty tome. Oh, and he probably asks Kate to fetch his slippers too.

      It’s just the image I get.

  3. Rose says:

    I totally agree, they both look super cute when they’re dancing! I bet that night was a hoot!

  4. Seagulls says:

    Why is that Tuvaluan lady taking a picture of Kate’s bum?

  5. putchka says:

    They are both adorable. I disagree that William is an entitled snob. He grew up with spotlights on him and think he turned out pretty well despite that. He certainly picked the right wife. Now he just needs dancing lessons from Harry…

  6. superjoy says:

    take those sunglasses off when you’re being carried, Wills. It makes you look extra douchey and entitled.

  7. Diane* says:

    I love this, looks like they had a great time.

  8. Lee says:

    Super cute – it seemed a tiny peek into Kate’s personality behind the proper public persona. This, combined with the scandal photos, actually show that she is probably a great partner for William – warm and fun when they’re not “on”, and perfectly proper when they are.

    • putchka says:

      I totally agree with you Lee. She seems like a perfect mate. I’m amazed that the world is aghast that she has nips. Come on, they thought they had privacy. Her giggling when meeting the topless natives was hilarious. Made me just fall in love and I’m a straight lady!

    • GoodCapon says:

      She’s a great partner for William because they’re both spoiled, entitled and lazy. Birds of a feather…

  9. jj says:

    Does anyone else feel slightly uncomfortable by the british monarchs being carried by the brown people….?

    • hoopjumper says:

      YES. Thank you.

    • putchka says:

      No, they seemed pretty happy about it. If it doesn’t offend them, so be it. Sometimes people can get too PC.

      • jj says:

        The people carrying them don’t seem happy at all. Wills and Kate look happy but the people who are actually underneath them look freaking miserable.

      • Izzy4ya says:

        People really abuse the term “pc”

        Anyway, that couldn’t be me, but if that’s how they chose to receive a former imperialist that’s their business

      • j says:

        Using the term PC these days is really just saying “Something others find legitimately offensive, but it doesn’t bother me, so let’s all keep quiet about it.”

        It’s overused and dismissive. When can we retire this?

      • Genevieve says:

        @ putchka…

        ITA! That picture doesn’t make me uncomfortable at ALL. In today’s society, the term PC frequently = total paralysis. Far better to do nothing than interact with people and risk being accused of being non-PC for any reason. Really? I’d rather jump in and actively engage with other people and cultures based on their ways and mores…just as William and Kate did. Much more fun and enriching that way, IMO.

        Discrimination of any kind is despicable and gross. However, I feel that we do a great disservice to any “minority” group by instantly jumping to the PC moniker. To me, it’s almost insulting to any group or person to be labeled like that to begin with. I wish we could just LOSE that term and treat everyone as we wish to be treated ourselves. :)

    • Lolo says:

      I was thinking the same,really not a good image to project…

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      *slowly raises hand*

      Yeah I cringed a bit when I saw that but then I thought “if that’s the Tuvaluan tradition, and they’re cool with it then I guess it’s ok?”

      Still seems a bit awkward though.

      • Belle says:

        TOK… I feel like I’m stalking your posts lately or something, but you keep saying what I was going to say!

        Looked a bit awkward… but I hardly think they demanded to be carried, right? If it is a custom they participated in, then I can’t see how they did anything wrong.

    • booboobird says:

      If that’s their tradition, who are we to object? When in Rome do as the Romans do. I’d be proud to carry the future king & queen of England no matter what color of the rainbow I am (and would feel uncomfortable being carried if I were Will or Kate (OMG, OMG,she was carried by WOMEN!!!)).

    • Heebeegeebee says:

      I agree, I am surprised they ok’d this on both sides.

    • hoya_chick says:

      I do Jj and I don’t care who thinks I’m pc.

    • Reece says:

      Yes. But then I thought that might be part of the culture.

    • Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

      That’s tradition, baby.

  10. Liv says:

    Haha, William’s dance made my day! ;-)

    • Belle says:

      I actually laughed out loud(; Many are bashing his wicked dance moves, but I found them kind of… endearing, in a he-totally-can’t-dance-but-at-least-he-is-trying kind of way!!

  11. GoodCapon says:

    Will looks like he was doing the ‘wax on, wax off’ thing in Karate Kid before doing God knows what. :P

    This is probably the most natural I’ve seen Kate in a long time. Usually she’s like a robot in her actions. Also, she was totally posing for the camera in the 5th picture. A bit like her sister then.

    Thank God the tour is over!!!

  12. L says:

    The part in the video where they are putting the skirt on her and she looks over at William and winks? Adorable. Nice to see more of her personality in a video, and they appear to be a real couple as opposed to a PR move (side eye at Charlene and Albert)

    I love that long dress, and it makes alot of sense since they were seating on the floor for dinner.

    And you’re in luck! That dress does come in blue and white! http://www.temperleylondon.com/shop/clothing/dresses/Long_Beatrice_Dress_11942

    • Rachface says:

      Super adorable. This whole trip she’s had a real smile not painted on one and constantly glowing at each other. I’ve also noticed the sausage curls are super messy and all I can think is “post sex duchess hair?”

  13. phaksi says:

    it’s too bad the bad the tour was overshadowed by the topless photos. Next time keep your top on Kate

  14. T.C. says:

    Got to give these two credit for a good job on this tour. I think it was better than the Canada and America tour. They seem to have more fun. Loving the pictures and dance video.

  15. skuddles says:

    I’m afraid I don’t get it – why do so many people think that Wills is a spoiled, entitled brat? I agree he is more stiff and formal than his bro Harry, but they play very different roles in the monarchy – Wills is in line to be king after all. I can’t think of any occasion where I thought he was acting like a douche…. If it’s because he’s suing the photogs, nothing new there – the palace is pretty much forced to seek legal recourse or the paps will grow even more out of control. And I’m totally behind them on that one. Everyone, regardless of who they are, deserve privacy in their private moments.

    • Blannie says:

      I agree. I don’t get the hate on William. He and his brother grew up under a microscope losing their mom’s loving presence too early. He’s always seemed like a respectable young man to me, old fogey that I am.

      I think he and Kate make a great couple; I’m happy he’s found someone who can give him more normalcy in his day to day life. I think she was silly to go topless, but that’s another story.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      +1, sistah! :)

    • Genevieve says:

      @ skuddles….

      Ditto, girl.

      I think most of the haters are from the British contingent who post here. I dunno, maybe I’d be resentful of a young prince and his warm, beautiful wife if I lived in a monarchy instead of a democracy. Even I got tired of the constant 24/7 Royals coverage during the Olympics.

      But I do feel that Wills has suffered a great deal of pain and loss in his life, despite being privileged. He, of all people, absolutely has the right to despise the invasion of the paps. And poor Kate, well…Kate is damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t. I think she’s done a lovely job of representing the UK, and her natural spirit of warmth and fun came shining through on this tour. You’d think the UK folks (including my personal friends and family there) would start to ease up on Kate and be glad that her tour with Wills has been such a success.

      *huddles in corner and waits for flying tomatoes*

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      It’s the little things that speak volumes.. when kate during their dating told him to stop cheating on her and that it was embarrassing he replied don’t you know who i am and that he was a prince!.

      He take his RAF duties with a grain of salt and treats it as a hobby or an excuse to get out of work.

      Members of his royal camp have threatened journalists for running or writing negative articles about him.

      To sum it up if he was the son of your boss and pulled this kind of stuff you would think he’s spoiled and entitled too.

      I can’t see kate being warm to anyone just for the sake of being nice. The york princesses are nice. Kate has a rep of being cold unless there’s a good time at taxpayers expense to be had.
      But what do i know. I am just a jealous hater, right?

      And again. Why are we not talking about these 2 fibbing to get out of work for another vacation?

      • hmmm says:

        YES! These are people who think it’s nothing to lie to their subjects and sloughing off their commitments for a good time of hedonism. Ugly on theinside and no one to be trusted. Yet Willy will one day be king. And everyone loves a liar, a cheater, a deceiver as their head of state and head of the Church of England. How many times over the years has Willy lied to get his way?

      • Genevieve says:

        @ Alexandra Bananrama and hmmm…

        I think you misunderstand the vein in which I wrote my original post. I am DEF not trying to call anyone a “jealous hater, right?” I’m trying to understand the vitriol concerning William and Kate. As I said earlier, I get this feeling of disdain concerning the younger royals from my own family and expat friends here in the States. I also concede that a country’s feelings regarding being subjects in a monarchy, rather than being a member of a democracy, must cause both great expectations of the royals and great disappointment when they don’t behave as desired.

        As I do not live in your country, I am just trying to understand. It appears that Wills and Kate are stepping in and fulfilling the work that is required of them as the youngest members of the Royal Family; Beatrice and Eugenie apparently do the same, to everyone’s mutual satisfaction. Is it just a case of W & K needing to step up to the plate more as far as accelerating their duties, charity work, etc.? There just seems to be so much hatred direct towards them.

        This is in no way meant to flame or to accuse any of the Brits here of “jealousy” or anything else. Please consider it as a request for information that will help me understand why they are so loathed. I come in peace, swear to God!

    • lafairy says:

      @genevieve:

      “I’d be resentful of a young prince and his warm, beautiful wife if I lived in a monarchy instead of a democracy”

      Instead of “democracy” you meant Republic right??

      Because democracy is a set of set to build a society on, while being a Monarchy or a republic is a chosen organisation of a determined country.

      Sweden, Netherlands, Denmark and the UK are Monarchies and amongst the most democratic countries in the world… while the Republic of Iran not so much…

      I am sure you didn’t implied that a monarchy cannot be democratic, there is no way you would have made such a blunder…

  16. serena says:

    Kate seemed like she enjoyed the hell out of it, while William made me really laugh hard! What dancing skills LOL anyway it was really cute.

  17. shewolf says:

    Adorable. Love it!

  18. Ri says:

    She’s cute, he’s awkward lol.

  19. Izzy4ya says:

    Oh how easily the public is swayed, a little uproar over titty-gate and now Kate is “just like us”

  20. ramona says:

    I LOVE Kate’s short dress. I love it. I would wear this dress to everything. Was there an ID on it that I missed?

  21. SamiHami says:

    Nice to read some non-hateful comments about Kate. Never really understood all the hate; she seems like a really good match for William. And she is really cute dancing.

  22. effy says:

    The dance was soo cute! both of them… awwww!

  23. val says:

    Ha Ha! Looks Like the duchess has a little rhythm. Good for her! The Prince is cute too, he is just bashful that’s all.

  24. Liz says:

    I think that they listen to all the negative press and then alter their personas when the cameras are around based on what people are saying about them and try to be the perfect royals. GREAT article about this on Duchess or Diva and not being blinded by what these two show to the cameras.

    • Jaded says:

      I read the link and the writer seems to have a very one-sided take on Kate. She neither deliberately orchestrated crotch-shots getting in and out of a low-slung limo (you try doing it in a skirt and you’ll see how difficult it is to manage) nor did she “stumble” drunkenly out of any cars. She never has been much of a drinker, that’s a fact. She actually toned down William’s partying and he only occasionally got out of control when they weren’t together.

      All these pictures can be interpreted pretty loosely and to call her either a saint or a slut, or that it’s the universe somehow giving her a rap on the knuckles, is just putting your own personal spin on things. I remember seeing the Queen when I was a young girl and her skirt flew up in a strong wind too. It’s just the wind, not some sort of cosmic grim reaper.

      She’s a human being like all of us, she makes mistakes but hers are no match for other gaffes the royal family has made. There are countless topless pictures of Princess Margaret with her boy toys, she too was a chain smoker and drank heavily. There are compromising pictures of Edward, Andrew, Charles, The Duke of Edinburgh, the list goes on and on so why pillory Kate like she’s the devil incarnate?

      • LAK says:

        It’s because she is actively promoted, and has been for some years, as the 2nd coming. She’s the most loved, prettiest, most modern, most independent, stylish, best dressed icon, best role model etc. For a while there,articles appeared where The Queen was found to be wanting in comparison to Kate.

        British people, we love an underdog. And we were prepared to embrace her. I can speak for Britain because aside from those indifferent to monarch or outright republicans, when you ask her ‘haters’ why they do so, the answer will be the disparity between the reality vs the promotion and of course the disappointment. Which probably makes us all gullible for believing the promotion in the first place.people don’t like to be lied to, so there are many vitriolic websites like the one linked to above that will only see all her bad points.

        What needs to happen is for everyone to re-adjust to the reality of Kate, to have no expectations etc so that when she does do something, we can all be pleasantly surprised.

        BTW – she used to party as much as William. She’s tonned it down and doesn’t drink like she used to. Those crotch shots are afew examples of many of her leaving nightclubs. Which is why one winces at her car exits as a duchess because skirts maybe a few inches longer than in her clubbing days, but she still exits really badly, and only self-censorship has stopped a pap from aiming their camera in the right place.

        Last year, arriving in canada, her dress blew up, showing entire world her bum and thong.

        There are pap pics of her, pippa and carol sunbathing topless infront of William on a boat.

        I would say, she has no issues displaying her body. She’s been caught out enough times for her to have made adjustments or take precautions.

        Also, Chelsy used to get papped exiting cars from clubs or bars. There is not a single crotch shot of her floating on the internet.

      • carol says:

        re: what Lak was saying – I think Kate must be a bit of an exhibitionist

  25. LAK says:

    William should never dance in public again. He is a terrible dancer. THIS was actually pretty good,for him.

  26. Lila says:

    Why is Kate dancing with Charles??

    Seriously, though, William needs to leave the dancing to Harry.

    • Sachi says:

      lol

      Charles is a pretty good sport, though, and is not above ‘getting down’ and having fun.

      http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/video/2012/may/10/prince-charles-weather-bbc-scotland-video

      William got none of Diana’s charm or Charles’s humour. Harry seems to have inherited the lot.

      • BeccaZ says:

        Holy…that video was hilarious. I can’t imagine eating my lunch and seeing the PofW pop up with my weather forecast. The Weather Channel needs to snap him up!

        I’ve seen other videos of Charles, and he really does have a sly sense of humor. He’s surprisingly charming.

        As for the Cambridges, the islands seem to bring out the the best in them. As the trip went on, Kate dropped more of her “Duchess” mantle and just loosened up. She can really rock a floral wreath, as well. I love that long white dress too.

        I feel like William is trying to restrain himself from busting out his club moves in that video. He looks good tanned without a tie.

      • Lila says:

        Love that video! Makes me like him more.

  27. Gabrielle says:

    If I was a princess, I would request to be carried on that plank at all times.

  28. Amy says:

    I seriously laughed out loud watching William dance. This just made my morning!

    And Kate looked like she was having a grand old time.

  29. taxi says:

    I doubt that being carried was something they had a choice about. To refuse that honor accorded to them as royal guests would probably have insulted the hosts. It’s traditional for the esteemed to be displayed in that way for everyone to be able to see them.

  30. Sachi says:

    Kate came off better here than William. She seemed to be genuinely enjoying herself and more laid back, warmer and happier.

    William, on the other hand, dances like that guy at the party who successfully stops all the other people from dancing because his dancing is embarrassing. This is his “little kicks”. Elaine Benes is not amused. :D

    • Belle says:

      How sad. Will shouldn’t participate because he isn’t a very good dancer? How would he have ‘come off’ if he had chosen not to dance? Hmmm.

      I guess I’m in the ‘dance like no one’s watching’ camp. In fact, I think everyone should dance their way around, all the time, where ever they go! :)

  31. Abby says:

    That video was so cute. Made my morning.:-)

  32. Lacie says:

    Did anyone notice, at the end of the video when they were sitting together? She is fanning herself and smiling and leans into him and tells him something. When he responds her smile immediately disappears. LOL. Poor guy, he was just raised too proper to have a personality.

    I do love how she winks at him though. At least one of them has a personality.

  33. NavyWife says:

    I love this video! I have a soft spot for Kate. I feel like she has gotten a bad rap over the years as far as the “Waity Katie” thing and the uproar about her supposedly not working and vacation schedule. I too decided a long time ago to set my career aside to follow my husband around the world and raise my children. Does it make any less of a human being absolutely not. It takes a lot to sacrifice your ambition for your partner to reach thier goals. I cannot imagine what it is like for her to constantly be “on”. Every move she makes and outfit she wears is under scrutiny. Even to go to the grocery store. Hell I’d be forever at the hair dresser and shopping too! So enough of my 2 cents for the day. I love her moves and I think your right the dress would look better in blue and white. I am in love with the yellow one too. So cute!!

  34. Reece says:

    Ever see him dancing at the Diana concert and Harry’s face? A treasure to behold! I’m sure it’s on youtube somewhere.

  35. Andrea says:

    Nobody likes a waity girl who has nothing going for her but her looks and following her man. Its anti-feminism. I knew a girl who was a waity Kate, waitd 8 years for her man to marry her, lived with him for years, and she ended up dumped. I feel bad for her, but she needed to focus on something other than her relationship. Its just not healthy in this day and age. If I were kate, I’d take up hobbies yoga and such and do much more for charities than she is doing. i’d love to do more for animal rights, no kill animal shelters, and domestic violence shelters. So my major gripe with her is that she doesn’t seem to do anything. Diana did much, much more. As for william, I can’t say he’s spoiled, I don’t know him personally.

    • Els says:

      I think that being judgmental about other women’s life choices is quite anti-feminist in itself. Whether or not you (or any of us) approve, she’s entitled to live her life in whichever way she chooses.

  36. Anna says:

    The video is adorable. Kate and Wills have been remarkably effective during this rash of tourism. They believably seem to like meeting all these people from different cultures. And Boobgate? Kate has a whole new sexy side to her that was never noticed much. And all those doubts about their relationship? I don’t know how two people can show the world any better than this that their love is real.

    Yes they are privileged, blah blah blah. But his mother died horrifically while he was a teenager. And kate is working hard. You try her life for a day. Not as easy as you think. Like all of us, they are just people doing the best they can.

  37. elisa says:

    Around 1:00, doesn’t it seem like the Tuvalans are singing something to the tune of “My Country Tis of Thee” (of thee I sing, land of spacious skies, etc)

  38. hmmm says:

    This is Waity’s payoff, what she waited 10 years for. To travel to exotic, lush places, to party hard, to be waited on hand and foot, and finally, to be carried like Cleopatra by the peons. Life is good for Dolittle, no wonder she looks in her element.

  39. carol says:

    no one is spoiled if they served in the military.

  40. Sachi says:

    Apparently there’s another instance of her skirt blowing up when she was in Brisbane. This one is worse than the one when she was in Canada because this time her arse is visible even through the blurry photo.

    Never mind the website, but the photo says it all:
    http://hatekate.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/wk.jpg

    Holding your skirts on the sides is not going to keep it down, Kate.

    Seriously, I’d like to hear the excuses this time. We shouldn’t be looking? The photographer is shameful for even taking the photo? The camera is to blame? Kate should be able to let her skirt fly up in the wind without anyone taking her photo?

    She’s had this happen THREE times. Canada, Singapore, and now Australia. Once is understandable. Twice is still acceptable. Thrice means you never learn and don’t want to. Paparazzi are disgusting, but Kate isn’t helping here by not managing her clothes better. She’s the only one who seems to have had her skirt fly up several times already, and yet many other Princesses have been on overseas trips and had been at windy airports, but none of them has had this happen. This time, Kate really should have known better.

    Are they going to sue the wind for lifting Kate’s skirt up this time?

  41. Less is More says:

    Aside from any dance or boobgate fallout, why is no one commenting on the facts:

    1. Kate appeared to be hit by Ebola (joke) virus ie- nudie pics reveal skin and bones, ribs protruding

    2. Help please Queen Elizabeth 2. Please Queen, you must intervene before it’s too late.
    Why? Because, if Kate eating disorder and heavy smoker and also 30+ before heir pregnancy. I don’t like where this is headed.

    3. Honestly, despite Diana’s faults, at least she ate ( the bulimia was intermittent) and didn’t smoke ie- she gave birth to healthy William.

    @ LAK – Well Chelsy’s no demure little thing either, but at least she has a real job:

    http://www.zimbio.com/photos/Chelsy+Davy/Chelsy+Davy+Out+in+London/IF-iOe8iyiL

    • LAK says:

      And just like that Kate once again does something to reinforce my view that she’s really dim.

      There are pap phots of her bum (no underwear) taken at airport in australia. The mainstream media are calling it a wardrobe malfunction saying an aussie pap has the pictures, but video and stills from the moment have already hit the internet.

    • LAK says:

      I am sorry but that barely registers as indecent especially as she’s wearing dark tights and one has to zoom in to acertain if one can see underwear.

      Kate’s crotch shots don’t need me to zoom in, and I can hazard a pretty accurate guess at what type of bikini wax she has.

      And now I have neen her bare bottom 3times in an official capacity, I am going to think she has no other underwear on except those nude tights the next time I see her in an official capacity.

      Urgh!!!! To unsee all of it.

    “I’d be resentful of a young prince and his warm, beautiful wife if I lived in a monarchy instead of a democracy”

    Instead of “democracy” you meant Republic right??

    Because democracy is a set of set to build a society on, while being a Monarchy or a republic is a chosen organisation of a determined country.

    Sweden, Netherlands, Denmark and the UK are Monarchies and amongst the most democratic countries in the world… while the Republic of Iran not so much…

    I am sure you didn’t implied that a monarchy cannot be democratic, there is no way you would have made such an obvious and terrible mistake…

    Edit to add… never worn a peasant dress in my life, so not sure why I’m gaga over this one, but I am :)

    They are appropriate, respectable, and respectful…and downright cute with those dance moves.

    And love her humidity hair and beautiful dresses, especially the long one.

    We had non-natives participate in traditional dances. They mocked the dance moves. that’s what I see Kate doing in the video. A white woman trying to “show off” and Kate’s immensely enjoying all the glory… Must have Mama Middleton braying in her palace…”ooooh, look what I gave birth to…” Which is very reminiscent of Cinderella’s step-sisters… somewhere out there is the real princess to william, only William is too driven by lust (He took a shine to Kate in a see-thru gown, she taunts him with near-nakedness much like a child who taunts other children with a sucker. Of course, Silly Willy fell for it). A wise king would see past that and into the heart and soul of a virtuous woman. It’d be a sad day if my son brought home someone who flaunted herself in every way. The monarchy will lose more than their money in this union.
