Bad luck to toast with water but maybe that’s all she had within reach.

Wasn’t her pregnancy confirmed already?

OMG, all I have to say is – poor girl.  Who cares what she used to toast with??  Maybe she doesn’t like wine and so she doesn’t drink it – doesn’t mean she’s pregnant!  Eesh. 

What if she has problems conceiving?  Poor girl is going to be under so much stress/pressure to conceive.  I hope that she can for her own sake. 

And just b/c they’re married, doesn’t mean they need to pop out babies already!

I don’t think it’s confirmed, but a quick google search shows that it’s widely speculated after the water toast!

I feel so removed from public knowledge.

I don’t think there’s anything rude about toasting with water. I’ve certainly never heard that before, and a quick google doesn’t turn up any actual etiquette sources that support it; several even suggest it as an alternative to alcohol. I think people just prefer to use “nicer” beverages, usually something sparkling, for the look of it.

Also, if I were Kate, I’d have done it deliberately just to mess with the internet’s head. 😀

I had no idea you weren’t “supposed” to toast with water. I’ve done it a million times, usually because the toasts get rushed and there was no time to get a drink before.

I wasn’t familiar with toasting with water being a faux pas.

If I were Kate, I’d probably drink something other than water but I don’t think it’s a big deal.

Maybe she likes teasing the press. If I was in that position, I would do everything I could to have a little fun with the people overanalyzing everything I did. 🙂

I’ve never heard that one shouldn’t toast with water.

I honestly feel bad for Kate.  It would suck to have every move you make analyzed about if you are pregnant or not yet.  I really hope they don’t have any difficulties once they do decide to have kids.

I always toast with water.  I don’t drink alcohol.

Kate is much stronger than I am.  Don’t think I could live with photographers and the media tracking my every move
