1. The Duchess' hemline needs to be mid-knee or lower.
Rivkah   (11.24.12)
Princess Diana initially wore dresses and skirts below the knee, mid-calf when she was modest and chaste and faithful in her marriage before rebellion took her down the wrong path. Sadly, Princess Diana thought she was unloved which goes to show that one's children and millions of people can love a person and the person has such low self-esteem, that that is not a comfort at all. She missed true love which is a relationship with the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua of Nazareth. The Duchess of Cambridge is loved by her husband. YNET should take down the nude photos of the Duchess of Cambridge. HaShem can cover that like Lady Godiva was covered by people refusing to look at her nudity because she was so greatly respected. My opinion on her inability to conceive so far is that there is an obligation to Jecca (Jessica) Craig that has not been met by Prince William who proposed to her, deflowered her, and then married someone else. She consented to that, but it displeased the Lord. After Jecca Craig marries and conceives herself, then the Lord will likely open Duchess Kate's womb. I noticed that phenomenon with my brother Joseph and his first and second wives after he got a divorce that was not based on religious grounds and remarried. The second wife could not conceive without miscarrying until AFTER the first wife remarried and conceived to cover the offense of the divorce she did not want that was not on Scriptural grounds. Semen vaginal sex establishes a union (marriage or half-marriage) or some of the Jewish Patriarchs would not have the esteem of HaShem, being born of concubines (half-wives) long ago.
2. The long hair of the Duchess is certainly being imitated,
Rivkah   (11.24.12)
too, even by news anchors in America in many places, particularly on cable and satellite tv stations. The Duchess of Cornwall is dressing well in her role, too.
3. topless sunbathing should soon catch on with the Haredim
roger ,   zurich switzerland   (11.24.12)
4. 3 Roger: NOT LIKELY.
5. Fashion of Kate?!
JeanH ,   USA   (11.24.12)
Since when does 'fashion' make a woman holy? What happens to those who cannot afford the latest 'fashion'? 'Modest' dress does not mean putting on the glitz!
lammie ,   Israel   (11.24.12)
The Princess is apparently Halachically Jewish. Her mother's mother is/was Jewish.
7. "Jewish kate"
Elinor ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (11.24.12)
to no. 6 That cannot be substantiated.
8. I am and know MANY thin Haredi women! ObnNOXious question!!!
L ,   merkaz, Israel   (11.25.12)
"Middleton is very thin. Isn't it difficult for religious women, who have given birth quite a few times, to imitate her appearance?" I think most any mother, religious or otherwise, would find that question extremely offensive. Disgusting generalizations. Completely tactless and vulgar commentary is apparently approved by your editorial staff so long as it is directed at Haredim, apparently.
9. considering kates wardrobe is copied from hasidic scholars
righto ,   xanadu   (11.25.12)
as was reported and covered, her outfits are copies of traditional pious scholar wear, that her main designer purchases in mea shearim - what goes around etc.
10. Rivka is there no End to your Talents?
Israelit ,   Israel   (11.25.12)
Biblical guru, health food specialist, psycologist to the lost and meshiggene, and now - fashion advisor to the Duchess of Cambridge. Dear, are you off your meds again?
11. Solid red dress for Shabbos and Yom Tov?
Danny ,   London England   (11.25.12)
The Duchess is beautiful and modest and a good role model, aside from the length of some of her skirts, BUT a solid red dress would not be appropriate for a modest Jewish woman. The Jewish objection to solid red dresses goes back many centuries and is mentioned in Shulchan Aruch.
12. The Queen's dress maker
Joseph ,   London UK   (11.25.12)
In a recent article on the Queen's wardrobe it was pointed out yet again that many of her skirts, which have always covered the knees, have weights in the hem to avoid the royal skirts blowing in the wind. The dress code for the Royal Enclosure at Ascot requires women to dress modestly and to wear hats that cover most of their hair. Obviously at royal religious services such as the royal weding, the ladies wear 'proper' hats and are modestly attired. Modesty is built into royal court etiquette.
13. Rivkah, aka Karnak the Great
Mea   (11.25.12)
Perhaps your brothers wife realized mental illness runs in the fam, and held off the baby making until it became clear to her that in your case it's merely delusions of grandeur with an obsessive religious fixation. Don't call HaShem Jesus again, got it?
14. 13 Mea: Yod-He-Vau-He is the name of God the Father,Yahweh
Rivkah   (11.26.12)
Yod is recognized by Hebrew scholars as being a letter in the Hebrew alphabet that is a symbol of the palm of a hand. He is a symbol of window, vision, seeing. Vau is a symbol as well as a letter and it means a nail. Yod-He-Vau-He. Palm-window-nail-window. Palm-vision, seeing-nail-vision, seeing. The name of God the Father means to see a nail in the hand twice. JeZeus is not HaShem. Yeshua of Nazareth is and said He is Yahweh. JeZeus is what Emperor Constantine and the apostate Council of Laodicea in about 300 A.D. changed the name of the Jewish Messiah Yeshua, to. That was in order to get sunworshipping pagans to join the church. Oh, he also changed the Sabbath to Sunday and made it a death penalty offense to observe the seventh day Shabbat. I don' recall calling JeZeus, haShem. HaShem calls me Solomon in the ELS Scripture code matrix on my name and birth year, so He is the judge of my comments' value. He values what I say and He is a better expert than you. He appreciates my fixation on Him. But then, He wants me in His Kingdom. Perhaps that is not what He wants for you.
15. 10 Israelit: HaShem calls me Solomon (Shlomo) in the ELS
Rivkah   (11.26.12)
Torah codes, so His opinion is more important than yours. I was astonished His opinion of me was so great. But then, He knows all about me and He appreciates my devotion to Him and to truth.
16. 11 Danny: Many cultures see a red dress as immodest.
Rivkah   (11.26.12)
In China, red is the traditional color of a wedding dress. But in Japan, a red dress signifies a harlot, as it does in many cultures. But in Britain, red is a military color and women wearing red are seen as complimenting or blending in with the military red uniforms.
17. Mea.
Birdi ,   Israel   (11.26.12)
Dont take any notice of Rivkah's delusional posts. She is totally off her rocker.
18. Reply to number 6
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (11.26.12)
The usual geneologists have discovered that the new Archbishop of Canterbury , like Prime Minister David Cameron, has 19th Century German Jewish ancestors on one side. Princess Anne's husband has some 18thy Century Sephardi Jewish ancestry, but try as hard as they could they could find no Jews on Kate Middleton's family tree, in spite of her mother's Jewish sounding maiden name.
19. Reply to number 5 single men
Joseph ,   London UK   (11.26.12)
Kate often buys from high street shops and often recycles her clothes. H M The Queen has her own dress makers, but the Queen also recycles her clothes and popular outfits do reappear. Princess Diana used to give her clothes away to charity shops, aside from her iconic evening dresses which have been displayed. A lot of Kate's outfits are not unusually expensive, but with her figure she always looks like a million dollars.
20. My dear Jewish sisters
moriah ,   sacramento usa   (12.02.12)
Stop trying to emulate the Gentiles...
