Really.
There's a lot of vitriol directed at Kate (and, to a lesser extent, William, for deciding to marry Kate).

I tend to like her, I think she always dresses well and looks appropriate. And I believe many members of the public would admit as much.
But I don't see her getting the kind of adulation that Diana did (which is a good thing, imo).

The point is she seems to suit William; they have been together a long time and she knows him very well. If the marriage endures as I believe it will, that will do more to silence the critics than a dozen nice articles in the papers.

William made his choice and we should respect it. Kate seems to be a very nice person who has accepted the role that comes with marriage to the heir to the throne.

They're a good fit for each other. IMO those nasty articles are just a bunch of jealous people who can't stand to see others be happy.

i could not agree more!

the problem with comparing her to diana is interesting because in the 80s, it was a completely different world. no IM, blogs, internet forums etc. diana suddenly was Pcharles' love interest and not much was known about her. she was seen as young and innocent. we waited to see photos in the press, not instantaneous web links, (and i am sure that there was a lot of spin doctoring done by the palace at that time.)

diana was endearing because she worked in a nursery. she was presented as the virginal bride and the mother of the future king. and then as the loving mum. later, when things went south, 'everyone' wanted to point fingers of blame and they pointed at her. when she started to make a name on the world stage for HERSELF in her humanitarian work, she proved herself to everyone, and kind of made her ex-family look not so great and it all got rather ugly.

i recall a photo of diana in a sheer skirt that was backlit by the sun so 'oooooh my! we saw a sillhouette of her legs'. when catherine was in canada, the wind blew up her skirt and someone snapped a photo of her thong and it went viral!!!.

i guess what i am trying to say is that there is much more opportunity for people to say and do nasty things to one's reputation these days. i just wish that people would respect william's decision, be happy for them that they have love, and give the 2 of them some peace, privacy, and positive support.

This is quite ridiculous IMHO. I have dozens of girlfriends who spend a similar amount on nails annually and think nothing of it. Before I forced myself to use up the makeup I had (or donate it to the local Women's shelter) I am sure I had more money than than Kate does in her stash. Even QVC sells skin treatments on auto delivery that compare with the annual total in the article. The hair cost - well frankly if I had hair that great and were married to a wealthy man - I'd probably make the same choice.
I know many of us would be in a snit is she appeared with dry split ends.

I happen to agree with you. The only way this 'newspaper' could know any of this information is by actually seeing the receipts for products/appointments that they're talking about. In my opinion, whenever someone claims that he/she is better looking, smarter, nicer than anyone else, that the truth is quite the opposite. Catherine has to look good; its part of her job, and if she happens to actually be naturally attractive (which she is), that's not something to ridicule her for. It's not as if she planned it. But this is what happens when there's no news to be had; the 'editors' and 'reporters' of DM put something like this up to create trouble.

These two articles were posted on my twitter, so I thought I'd share them here:

Don't know how true this is, since Catherine is the Ambassador for Team GB Olympic as well as Paralympic Team, but I guess we'll have to wait and see:

I thought that this article was relatively positive about Catherine, which is always nice to see:

The article starts with "But now it's thought the Duchess of Cambridge will lie low for awhile..." I can't help but ask exactly who is thinking this? The writer and her cat? The group around the water cooler? Whomever is thinking this obviously forgot (or didn't bother to research enough to know) about the paralympic commitment, but as you say Daria_S, we'll wait and see.

I want to say that this article was written to boost the sale of the magazine. We know that Catherine sells, so the 'editor' thought to make a profit by writing this drivel.
