"But as Kate boarded her flight from Heathrow on Wednesday, there was no sign of her supposed fiance Pete.
That they're not getting married today in a registry office in Fulham - as reported - is clear.
But it seems Pete is keen to join his lady in Thailand, only he has to check in with a probation officer once a week, so the long-haul trip is not ideal.
But a friend told The Sun: 'Pete is desperate to make it to Thailand to bring in the New Year with Kate.'
They have been on and off a lot recently but patched things up properly leading up to Christmas."
Kate has flown to Thailand and was trying to organise a flight for Pete before she left."
