So then, how come when the same publicity is bringing him all these organizations to donate money, he turns on the press? Why is he a snob about all the things that have brought him all of his fortune? Well, I think Kate is a snob. She seems so full of her self, like she is a God and we should worship her.I know, I hear people say that, "well, she is just a girl and she is doing her regular day stuff, so leave her alone," I am sorry, but that can't happen.
What has democracy got to do with the royals? Posing to raise money for the few charities he is involved with, should not allow people to poke into every corner of his life. Being a patron of a charity should be seen as a job, when you are at work fine but, when you are off work, you are entitled to some privacy, none of which has anything to do with his personal fortune!

Why can't Kate be left to have a life, because you want her to pose and smile. She is confident but, I am amazed that you think she believes herself to be god like, how did you come to this conclusion about a nice young woman who wants privacy, rather than worship? If you "hear people saying that she is just a girl leading a normal life, so leave her alone", surely that means that there are very few people with the same opinion as you!

Of course Kate deserves to be left alone, but given that that it is a futile expectation it would be nice to see her handle the situation a little more graciously. I think she comes off snobby because of this lapse in courtesy, but no, that is not the same as her thinking she is worthy of worship.

Take a look at the Kate current events thread, where she is being pulled apart because she did smile and act graciously for the cameras and everyone else who saw her at Cheltenham. Mind you, she did wrinkle her nose once or twice and gasped with horror occasionally, she even frowned a few times.

This is what democracy has to do with royals.
Haven't you heard that many people find royals in this era meaningless? They don't rule anyone nor do they make crucial decsions, then why are tax payer money is given to these people? By any account, royals, inculding the british royals need good publicity to promote them. :)

Democracy is a system where the population of a society controls the government.
So I still fail to see what democracy has to do with the royals as they have nothing to do with the government. Luckily in the UK many more people are proud of their royal family and are not baying for a republic.
The fact remains that everyone is entitled to some privacy, especially Kate who is not even a member of the royal family, yet!

Kate's behaviour at Cheltenham was somewhat atypical for her though, which may be why she's being castigated for "acting like a celebrity". Plus there's a world of difference between posing for cameras at an event and being generally pleasant.

I think this thread has passed its sell-by date. Since none of us knows William or Kate, we can only go on impressions we get from the media. Once people have said "yes I think he's a snob" or "no I think he's quite down to earth," that's pretty much all you can say. And now that Kate is also under scrutiny, the tone of the thread has turned rather more vicious than is actually necessary. One way and another, there doesn't seem to be much advantage in keeping it open.

The three British Royals moderators have discussed this issue and decided that this is an appropriate time to close the thread.
