Prince William's girlfriend joins Jigsaw
Prince William’s girlfriend Kate Middleton, has a job with the fashion chain Jigsaw, it emerged today.

The 24-year-old, praised by fashion critics for her demure but feminine style, has been taken on as an accessory buyer.
A spokesman for the high street brand said: “We can confirm that Kate joined our staff two or three weeks ago as an accessory buyer for Jigsaw and Jigsaw Junior.”
Now hopefully the foolish infighting about what a worthless excuse for a human she is for not having a job will end.

Good for her, it makes you wonder how the 'all knowing press', didn't know about this employment until Jigsaw and Catherine wanted them to know!

As Jo said, being a buyer for a company carries a great deal of responsibility. Travelling to fashion houses and shows, looking through an enormous amount of 'products' and catalogues, helping to decide what the stores will stock!

For those who havn't read the article, she has apparently been with this company for 3 weeks!

I doubt she's had this job until recently. But it's a good thing that she's finally employed somewhere since a marriage proposal isn't coming anytime soon.

I guess she could have worked for them for longer without somebody being the wiser because it was her appearing in an official function at a fotoshoot (which is a project that includes not only members of the company but a lot of people bound to have good media relations like models, photographers, stylists etc.) which leaked to the press. I'm not convinced that this was not intentional!

Maybe she does some sort of trainee program as a buyer there because I doubt anyone would give such a responsibility for the company's success to a young girl just out of university. And I know what I'm talking about because my sister-in-law is a highly qualified buyer, too, who is held responsible by her boss if her transactions turn out to be too expensive or - even worse - wrong.

It's Official! Kate has a job!

WILLS' GIRLFRIEND LANDS A JOB IN THE FASHION BUSINESS

Prince William's girlfriend Kate Middleton is known for her style savvy and her keen eye for the perfect accessory - whether handbag or jewellery. So it's no suprise to hear that her sartorial skills are now being called upon by the glamorous fashion industry.


Prince William's Girlfriend Lands a New Job

Prince William's girlfriend, Kate Middleton, has a new job – working for British clothing chain Jigsaw.
A source at Jigsaw tells PEOPLE: "I can confirm she works for the company, but we're not making any other comment."

It's really impressive that she has a "normal" type of job too. It's nice to see a girl like her with a type of job many people in their 20s can and do have. It would have been not surprising to see something more glamorous (PR, Vogue intern) but it would have been so nauseating too!

Also, I didn't notice before but now I see this Jigsaw store is owned by the same "Belle and John" she supported at the Bluebird store opening. I wonder if they are old family friends.

I think they are friends of her parents and Prince Charles.

i can vouch for that. i work in the office of a large retail/wholesale company and they don't just hire inexperienced people to do their buying. there's too much repsonsibility involved. however, best of luck to kate in her new position...i'm sure she'll do great.

There was an article around when they went to Mustique and there was a quote from Belle Robinson saying she had never met either of them but someone had told her they needed somewhere to stay in Mustique (does anyone else remember this article?). And her husband saying that they had racked up bills on the house and they had better pay them because he wasn't going to.


I don't understand why a "buyer" is on a fashion shoot...in my experience a buyer has no reason to be on the shoot, it's odd. Unless it's a play job. Generally the buy will stay in the office dealing with suppliers, supply sheets etc. Looking at manafactures new wears. But good for her getting a job, fashion is the best job in the world (although i am biased) but i'm in the creative side of it.

So Kate has a job now? Wonderful. I do think she's got a bit of front going into fashion but then again, hardly anyone in fashion seems to know the first thing about style.

She could be an assistant. That's what her duties sound like to me. But I agree that it is good she's finally got a job in the last few weeks after several months of doing...whatever she was doing. I don't know if I'll change my mind about her. I'm now suspicious of what her intentions toward William are.

This is all I could find about the Mustique house:
HIBISCUS John and Belle Robinson: Hibiscus is the five-bedroom bolt hole of Jigsaw clothing-chain tycoon John Robinson and his wife Belle. This secluded villa has one of the best locations on the island with its wonderful view of Macaroni Beach. Perhaps this is why local fashion designer Lotty Bunbury arranged for Prince William and Kate Middleton to stay here on their recent romantic break. During his holiday, the future King enjoyed several energetic sets of tennis with Virgin boss Richard Branson. Source: Evening Standard, Nicky Haslam, 2 June 2006

Good for her that she found a job! I think she's perfect as an accessory buyer. I personally like her style. :)

Thank you for the pictures. What is she carrying? Is that for her job?


ETA: I guess she was picking up dry cleaning. There are more pictures here. If that link doesn't work just go to the main page and click on "Kate middleton visits local dry cleaners"

Prince look-a-like keeps Kate warm on night out

At first glance, it looks like Prince William out for a night on the town with his girlfriend Kate Middleton.
