Andrew Smith writes: Reports the BBC: A mother from Kent has been told she cannot use her Facebook account because she shares a name with Prince William's fiancee. Kate Middleton, from Pembury, said the social networking site had accused her of impersonating her famous namesake. Ms Middleton, who set up her account two years ago, said she was shocked at the decision. Facebook said it made the occasional mistake and would seek to resolve the issue.
