It doesn't come across as any kind of a sneer at Donna Air, it read to me as a sneer at James Middleton. LH said 'could you imagine him going out with a girl who worked in Dorothy Perkins?', suggesting that James Middleton wouldn't 'lower himself' to date someone so low down on the social ladder, as he thinks he is above that. I really don't see how people in any way are confused about LH's post? It was very clear.
Yes, I was confused about the confusion too

I have to agree not one part of what LH said (BIB) refers to Donna. So how people jumped to the conclusion that its was about Donna is behond me lol

Because I think HE would have a problem with it and the rest of the Middletowies, not ME!
Why? Do they not work in a shop?

I thought she was about 40 now, not 33
me too, it seems as if she has been around forever, certainly since the mid 90s AKA the Zoe Ball/Carol Smilie era.

She can't be 33. she most definitely looks older & wasn't she in Byker Grove with Ant & Dec. thought they were around the same age, late 30s. 33 my eye.

Wasn't her character (Charlie) slightly younger than PJ and Duncan?

Well yes, absolutely I do. But why, to what end? It's just all so pointless.

She gets media coverage - her 'career' seems pretty non existentg these days - and he gets to be seen as a hot blooded heterosexual. It simply wouldn't do for a relative of the royals to be perceived as 'that way inclined'.

I'm minded to agree with you that shes bearding for him . It might seem pointless to us but to him and people like him i.e those in the public eye be they actors singers or members of the aristocracy which he is now (the future Uncle to a monarch will at some point get a Title ) they seem to live in a bubble of un-reality and I genuinely don't think they have any idea what the public really think of think of them . They seem to think they can't tell the Plebs anything and they will believe it. Which is really funny as its the deluded telling the deluadable what to believe.

Saturday Night Fever and Top Gun are prime examples .

Yes she was a couple of years younger than them. 33 sounds about right.

Donna has certainly moved up in the world from her Byker Grove days.

She's another one who seems to have been in her early 30s for an eternity, although she is 34 soon and if Ant and Dec are 37 now, it's probably about right.

What this relationship says to me is that how are the Middletons reacting to the social climber Donna Air, it is something they have never done now is it?

Ho, hum, what goes around comes around

Donna Air used to have the broadest Geordie accent ever and made Cheryl Cole sound like The Queen, now she puts on a fake upper class/posh accent when she speaks instead yet you can still hear the Geordie underneath. It sounds ridiculous.
I agree. I posted on another thread that the read the bedtime story on Nickleodeon Junior and sounded very posh.
