    The woman has been married for almost two years. Stop calling her “Kate Middleton” – it’s disrespectful.

    @ Tony – how is it disrespectful?? Some women keep their last name. Leave it to a man to say something like that. Good grief.

    @ Jennifer- Tony makes a good point. While some women keep their late name, Kate has made it plain that her proper title is Her Royal Highness, Catherine,Duchess of Cambridge. The writers are showing ignorance in not knowing how to write about her properly using her royal title. Commoners may keep their last names but royals have official titles and use them.

    As for her being pregnant, there are 7 billion people on earth. Why be so worked up because this rich couple is expecting? Why not be just as excited that others are expecting?
