If a profit of £115,192 represents failure, I'd be curious to see what would be required for success.

Pippa Middleton is the most successful Middleton making £229,241 last year | Daily Mail Online

With that said, the headline is clearly suspect, given that we've got no idea what their parents made.

Unless you get a look at their balance sheets or bank accounts, you have no idea what is going on with them or how well they are in fact doing.

If someone tells us he is financially successful during an interview...well, of course they are... Kind of like people giving us details on internet forums about themselves, such as their age, what they do, etc, etc. I think you get my drift here....

Doesn't mean they aren't in fact successful in their own right - but we don't know.

Yeah, but I'm just saying that those two are doing okay than most people their age.

Let's not pretend though that any of them are devoted to attending church services on a regular basis.

I can't see that it matters whether they are regular church goers, or whether that was the only time they ever set foot inside a church.

I'm not a regular attendant, but you may be sure that if I were invited by the Queen, I'd be there!

The keyword is invited. As far as I'm aware, the Middletons are not pounding on the palace doors demanding admittance. I see no reason why they ought to refuse any invitations they get.

My understanding is that H.M is a committed Christian and Heard of The Church of England. Now please feel free to correct me, but given this, why would she not invite people to Church?

Dear Ms. G. Giraffee, I do so enjoy your input.

It's speculation but I also believe that the Middleton's attendance at church was likely at the invitation of the Queen, which is tantamount to an offer that can't be refused.

Given the Queen and Philips age it may be something family has to do when they visit. I know that when I visited my grandmother church will be attended on Sunday so always pack for it. We were all the same religion just lazy...but when you visited grandma laziness was no excuse. I also couldn't imagine staying at my relatives home while they were away at church.

Maybe that's why the Queen does it!

They should up their game and let Carole ride in the car with the Queen, that would break the internet.

I'd like to see them anonymously tip off the press, then head to a bar and order a pint together.

It does not appear that the Middletons are regular church goers based on the fact that Kate was not confirmed in the CoE until she was engaged to William. Also, Carole, Mike, Pippa and James are not the queen's family, so her wishes would not extend to them. And why would Carole and Mike not prefer to be having Christmas with their family (James, Pippa, and any other of their extended family) at their very nice home. Kate is an adult woman who waited a long time to finally marry into the Royal Family, so she should abide by their traditions accordingly. And really it's most families' traditions. My parents didn't tag along with me to my inlaws' home when my husband and I spent Christmas with my inlaws.

Kate's birthday was on a Saturday. What did people want, for the Queen to tell Carole and Mike to stay in the shadows as the rest of the family went to church on Sunday. Kate's family is just as important to her as Sophie's family is to her, or Camilla's family is to her. Why do some commoners get so upset over this fact

The lengths people go to and try and bash Kate's family is funny

The Middleton family were not staying at Sandringham House but at Anmer.

Anmer Hall is 3 miles away.

The Middleton family and Catherine's friends were invited by William and Catherine to celebrate Catherine's birthday at Anmer House.

Seems odd to be inviting people from another house party, three miles down the road, to join you for church service...

Well, I pretty much disagree with your whole post. Where to start…

1.Her family must be somewhat committed to the CoE or her parents would not have married in a CoE ceremony. They also wouldn’t have christened their children. That they did these things does show something.

2.The Middletons did spend Christmas with their own family. They weren’t at Anmer on Christmas, they were there for Catherine’s birthday. Catherine was not born on Christmas, so I’m not sure why you’re complaining about Christmas. It doesn’t make much sense.

3.I don’t know why Catherine should “abide by traditions accordingly”. When every other member of the BRF gets leeway to make their own traditions. She has just as much rights as the other family members.

4.How nice that your parents have never tagged along. The Middletons have also never tagged along. Verb, 1. tag along - go along with, often uninvited. - I’ve never heard of the Middletons gate-crashing the royals, so all signs point to them being invited on the rare occasions we see them with the royals.

I think it's more sad than funny. Middle-class critics bashing the Middletons for being middle-class. The self-hate is depressing. I hope the critics learn that they are just as valuable to the world as the people born "above" them.
