Prince William and Kate Middleton enjoyed a dinner out last Thursday, August 28. There are pictures–I wonder if they’ll complain. They didn’t make a peep for the recent pics of Kate walking George in the park with her bodyguard (note: Popsugar says it’s Kate’s friend, but that is incorrect, that woman is Kate’s bodyguard and has been since at least the wedding–you can see her getting out of the car as Kate arrives to the church), even though they’ve complained many times before. There are also pictures of Will and Kate (and Lupo!) arriving back in London from Norfolk on Friday, August 29.

So back to the dinner, Will and Kate went to a restaurant/pub in Great Bircham, Norfolk, the King’s Head Hotel. Will drank a lime and soda while Kate had a white wine spritzer (so much for those pregnancy rumors). They both ate grilled fillet of black bream with roasted Mediterranean vegetables, baby spinach, marinated olives and oven-dried tomatoes with arrabiata sauce for dinner and split vanilla ice cream for dessert. That actually sounds delicious. I prefer chocolate ice cream, though.
From the Daily Star:
“No one could believe it when Wills and Kate just walked in and headed over to the bar. Aside from the fact they had four bodyguards with them, they looked like any other young couple in love. Kate’s hair was still wet and they were both in jeans. They had the look of any other parents who had grabbed the opportunity for a night out without the baby. William asked for a table in a quieter part of the pub as the main restaurant was packed, so staff sat them in the bar. All evening, they were holding hands and giggling. Kate kept tousling her hair in a flirty way. Wills couldn’t take his eyes off her for the whole meal. They were really lovey-dovey and they were kissing a lot.”
“They were like any other couple – they spent ages deciding what to have, then both picked the same meal.”
“A few diners went over and shook their hands as they left. They seemed happy to say hello.”
From the Express:
“William was extremely affectionate and considerate towards Kate throughout. She walked in with wet hair. She kept playing with it, twisting it around her fingers while talking to him. They were quite flirtatious and couldn’t keep their hands off each other. When they had finished their meal, a couple of locals came up to them and said hello. They smiled and were very chatty, very accommodating. My overwhelming feeling was how normal they were. They just seemed happy to mix with the locals.”
I didn’t think Kate would be the type of woman who would leave the house with we hair. Huh. Ugh at Kate twirling her hair. Homegirl does that ALL THE TIME.
Oh, but four bodyguards? Is that really necessary? Ugh, whatever.

As I mentioned, there are also pictures of Will and Kate arriving at King’s Cross station in London on Friday, the day after the dinner date. Go here to see a slideshow.
It’s interesting, we go for weeks with nothing from Team Cambridge and then we get two different candid shots from two different days in the span of a few days. I seriously wonder if Will and Kate are going to complain about these photos.

On a side note, Kate and Will have a new appearance planned for September 8; they will open a building at Oxford University.
In other news, the Sunday Times is reporting that Will and Kate will make a tour to China in 2015. And we may see Will and Kate attend a state banquent during the Singapore state visit in October. If so, we may see Kate in a tiara, but for now it’s just a rumor.
It was strongly hinted to me a few months ago that W&K would be playing a role in upcoming Singapore state visit in October… State banquet?
