It seems she's capitalizing on a faint resemblance to Kate, but it's a poor reproduction indeed!

I wonder if she would have dared to do such an article when Diana was in Catherine's place. I doubt it. Right now she is clownesque but with Diana she would have been utmost ridiculous. And I'm not a Diana fan and I love Catherine. But there's some truth in it that Diana had the special something right from the beginning while Catherine needs more time to develop it if ever she does. Not that she needs it because she already is a real hit but she is not yet iconic. As this article proves.

Personally I never see Kate getting to the point of really being iconic in the sense that Diana was and I sincerely hope it never happens. With being iconic comes a stand alone kind of adoration. One is seen as a sole personage of note. I mostly see in the years to come, William and Kate perhaps as a unified, supportive team much like HM and the DoE and Charles and Camilla are now.

You're too polite. The woman looks like something out of a nightmare (but I love your eloquence, as usual).

I agree with you. I don't think Catherine is striving to be an icon of any sort. She doesn't appear to like being the center of attention. We see it in her style choices, and in the way she comports herself during engagements (even ones that are solo). I believe that she takes her role as William's supporter quite seriously, so there's no fear that she'll want the limelight (of course things could change as time goes on, but that's the impression I'm receiving at this point). I do like the idea of these two being a team, and I think more likely than not, we'll see that develop rather than either one of them going for an iconic image. It's a bit out of character, if the truth were told.

It's just another example of certain people setting Kate up on a pedestal and idolizing her, only to possibly lambast her when she may not live up to their ideals.

Liz Jones is completely deluded and as mad as a box of frogs. Depending on what side of the bed she happened to get out of, she's either trying to lodge herself as far up Kate's rear end as is anatomically possible, or she's trying to get together a mob of trolls to head straight for Angelsey with pitchforks.

This particular article is laughable, but nothing on some of her classics. Lest we forget this gem (don't read if you're eating your dinner) which led to some extremely rude (but hilarious) nicknames for her:

Oh, my!
She is, hmm, a very colourful person, that's for certain.
So, should we expect pitchfork article next?

I think that's the case with a lot of celebrities and public figures. People idolize them and put them up on such heights that it's impossible to remain there. Then, when the said persons are not able to live up to the image the public has created, all he** breaks loose. I think people need to remember that Catherine (and the rest of the royals) are only human. They will make mistakes, and if one is a true supporter, one will continue to cheer on, even when the popularity for a particular person is not at its' peak.

Yikes . Sounds like something out of one of those rather cheesy movies from Lifetime (a TV network here in the States). I hope she gets some psychological help, because yeah...that's just scary.

I won't be surprised if the next 'article' written by this woman is a bunch of vitriol. Good grief. It's sad that people like that can get into any kind of publication.

I see a Palace announcement next year for a Royal Baby. Am certain nothing will happen this year! Maybe around July/August 2013.

Please note that all posts regarding Catherine's parents, brother and as well as her "cousins" have been moved to The Duchess of Cambridge: Family, Wealth and Background .

Please note that this is general information on Catherine not the Middletons.

Thanks!

Are we all still waiting for proof on these accusations that the Middleton's are using their royal connections to call for privacy?

Good.
Emily Blunt is too good an actress to play the role in another cheesy romantic comedy, especially if it is anything like the last one.

The hair diet: A glass of bitter and a juicy steak - the surprising menu for achieving shiny Kate Middleton-style locks
Quote:
Achieving shiny Kate Middleton-style hair, if you believe what the TV adverts tell you, is as simple as switching your brand of shampoo. But we all know it’s not quite as easy as that. Just as your skin and eyes lose their lustre after a stressful week or a few sleepless nights, so your hair is hugely affected by your diet and lifestyle.

And make sure you include olive oil in your diet for glossier, thicker hair.

All nonsense. Your hair is your hair. You cannot make it thicker, you can add gloss.

Sometimes you can though.
Try castor oil: it does wonders if you have suffered hair loss, or over-plucked eyebrows.
