Actually, Diana was call "Princess Diana" by the press. Her title was Diana, Princess of Wales. Kate's is Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. When the Queen dies, she'll become Catherine, Princess of Wales as the wife of the immediate heir to the throne. Camilla is Duchess of Cornwall as, obviously, the public wouldn't be happy for her to be Princess of Wales. [ Reply | More ]

Diana was called Princess Di in the press but it was inaccurate to do so--her actual title was Diana, Princess of Wales. Only a born Princess gets the title in front of her name. As there is currently a living Prince of Wales (although not a Princess), Kate's gotta wait, just like Wills. [ Reply | More ]

I was fine until early afternoon today... but around 4pm I started to feel a bit "off" (had bowel movement late morning and then one in the afternoon - no diarrhea but sensation of not having emptied bowel completely) around 6 I started feeling nauseous and had another bm. All I can think of is I had a pasta dish for lunch - at Eataly of all places - but I don't think this is the cause... I could not eat anything for dinner, still feel nauseous and had some herbal tea (supposedly for upset stomach) but I wish I could get some relief.
