Their silver jet touched down just after 11.45am local time. The Duchess, who was wearing an elegantly-simple floral summer dress, emerged and walked across the tarmac to the terminal. She appeared cheery and waved to onlookers. Prince William also smiled and waved to royal-watchers. The couple waited for about two hours as their plane refueled

It doesn't bother me but it seems to vex my elderly female relatives terribly.

They can't stand that pose, especially when the celebrity or VIP is wearing a form-fitting fabric, probably because it's drawing attention too close to the private parts, or something like that.

It can look a bit smug, I suppose, and I had to smile at Grazia magazine inferring that Jennifer Aniston must be pregnant from a photo of her, with her hands resting on the side of her breadboard-flat abdomen, at some book launch last week.

If it's possible she is actually expecting, she's on the naughty list from now on at my aunties' houses.

Sagittarius:

It's time to put plans into action. Don't wait for anyone's permission. Just move forward as if you've been given the green light. Before long, others will recognise the merit of this idea and lend their support. It will be especially helpful to get the approval of an educational leader. Making resources more readily available to the public is a worthwhile mission. You especially enjoy seeing children benefit from your hard work. Thanks to you, they'll have better opportunities for advancement.More
