I think that it has to do with when women in the 60s and 70s wanted more financial independence. Things have evolved from the point of saying that a woman has a right to work and have a career to the point where a woman is expected to have a career. So if a woman doesn't have a job these days--no matter how accomplished she is or how fulfilled she feels personally--she's seen as a lazy layabout. It's not right.

I think it'd be tough for William's wife to have a normal career...Harry's would probably be fine.

I think no one mentioned this so sorry if it has been mentioned. Chelsea is going to become an attorney, with that degree she can do many types of things. She could still work part time with her own firm and still do royal events. She could also use her skills for royal events and especially Harry's charities. Kate on the other hand... I don't know.

Good luck to Chelsy if she does practice law. Really! A glimps at the career of Cherie Blair during her years at No. 10 would give a taste. Daily Mail and etc will be tickled pink at the thought of picking over her cases and clients, and making all sorts of headlines over how any one of them would taint Chelsy's character and in extension the Royal Family, blah-blah-blah. None of it has to be true, of course.

If Kate and William do get married, she's going to automatically have a full-time job on her hands being Princess William.
