Kate Middleton May Be Getting Marriage Advice From an Unlikely Source

Kate MiddletonTongues wagged when word leaked that Kate Middleton was planning a vacation sans hubby, especially considering that baby number deux is on the way. You'd think the two would want to spend their last months as a threesome together -- but Kate was eager to jet off and spend some time in Mustique with her parents while Prince William was eager to stay home and study. But guess what? It looks like they know what they're doing. They appear to be taking tips from another happy royal couple.


Kate and William seem to be following in the footsteps of Prince Charles and Camilla, The Duchess of Cornwall. The two have been happily married for about 10 years -- and that's not even including all those years they were happily having an affair. The point is, these two are happy!

So, how do they do it? According to The Daily Mail, the two spend less time together these days than they did when they were sneaking around behind Diana's back! A source says they live completely separate lives, even down to living in different homes.

That doesn't mean, however, that they don't like each other. Apparently, when they are together, they are "fantastic." It just isn't that often.

Hey, this might be the key to ALL marriages surviving! Seriously, sometimes I think couples break up just because they're sick of looking at each other and listening to each other. Couples might love each other still, but I'm not sure anyone can breeze through decades of being in each other's faces all of the time.

On the other hand, considering that Kensington Palace and Highgrove aren't exactly studio apartments, you would think separate abodes would be unnecessary.

Also, these two don't have children. It would be a bit unfair for Kate and Wills to live apart and either force the children to divide their time or shuffle them around constantly.

But it goes to show you that absence can make the heart grow fonder. Or at least help it not turn totally embittered. And that might be a lesson Camilla is passing along.

Do you think this is something Kate and Wills should ever do?
