remarkably discreet about the

relationship over the last

eight years between their daughter and Prince William but

they have said one or two

things, messagibly when the

engagement was announced,

couple. We have lots of laughs

together." And they were paying

mixture of spectacle and

identification as well. It's a

good thing. Well that's it,

isn't it? That's where modern meets meets traditional? That could
