I would probably recommend interning at an art gallery under an assumed name. But definitely not in England. She is well know.

Caroline Kennedy did it when graduated college but that was like 20 years ago and we so live in a different world :(

I personally don't expect anything of Kate as William's girlfriend but the public might expect her to follow under Diana's foots, which some of the media is already comparing. Very unfair I believe though.

I agree an art gallery job would be great. Then she'd get to use her degree :) if she did it in England the paps would go crazy, and she'd be getting work experience out of it, kind of killing two birds with one stone ey?

I think she could work in an art gallery in England, but probably best not to take a job that involves mixing with the public:p .

Since she has a degree in the subject here are probably a number of fields open to her in the art world. I don't know what subjects her degree covered, but maybe she is qualified to get into art restoration. I think those people beaver away for hours in private rooms where the press couldn't get to her. Yesterday I saw an interesting docco about a Danish art expert who had used modern techniques to prove two little paintings were Rembrandts, and to prove another one wasn't. There's probably hands-on arty stuff as well as work associated with management of collections.

Or, as Jo of Palatine suggested, she could undertake research for a book, or maybe research for a forthcoming collection, or about past collections. This sort of thing would let her get out of those back rooms and holiday in sunny places. :)

She'd need specialist training for art restoration. But working at a gallery or a major auction house or museum should be possible. Maybe Lady Helen Taylor could find work for her in a gallery somewhere.

I believe she is working at her parents' business, out of the way of the camera lenses and learning and planning a children's offshoot of that business. That is the most hassle free, careful thing she could pursue without causing press attention or scandal. This girl is handling herself very well.

She was going to work at an art gallery when she first graduated, if I recall. There were pictures of her interviewing places, but there was too much press attention for her to take a job at any of those places.

Well there's the problem in a nutshell.

No expectations. She should have fun and enjoy her boyfriend--like anyone else. She is not engaged yet. Let her be happy and enjoy her time with William.

I find myself in the middle of both ideas. I wish Kate would do something with her time but that's for two reasons neither of which is me saying that the public has the right to dictate Kate's life to her.

But I do think that she should start doing something because if she doesn't marry him and decides to have a career, she's got a big gap on her resume to explain what she had been doing with her time. For herself not for her public image I think she should at the very least work part time at a gallery- maybe Laura (Camilla's daughter) can put in a good word for her

If she marries him, I would like to have seen a sign that she is inclined to work and is not as lazy as Camilla whose advice I rather suspect she is taking.

I am not a fan of Camillia's but I don't think that she is being lazy...and its a little unfair to compare the two IMO.

Camilla is from a different time when women were "educated", came out into society and than married. That's her life. This is not to say that she is not smart, and couldn't have had a real job or meaningful life (though it could be argued that raising her kids was her job) or a respresentative of all women of her age but that's her life. Who are we to judge? In addition, she has only been married a year...do we expect her to really do 300+ engagements...thats unfair. But this thread is about Kate and not Camilla.

Now Kate is not a part of "society" but she does come from a little money, and if the relationship doesn't work with William and she does fade into the background and gets a job like everyone else..I am sure she can easily explain her lack of work experience by saying that she took a gap year or worked for her parents.

Kate is in an enviable position that she doesn't need to stress about earning a living. There are plenty of girls with means that don't work at all. That she had an university education shouldn't automatically require her working either. I'd rather see her spend time shopping and hanging out on polo fields, then getting a silly job for PR's sake. I'm sure there will be people critizing her for the type of work she gets or how she got it, etc. ad nausea.

I expect that Kate will start working for her parents internet based company if things don't work out with William.

It's the perfect way to work and stay out of the limelight for a few years until the press forget you.

Enviable being the operative word.

At the moment I have no expectations of Kate. She is the 2nd in line to the throne's girlfriend - nothing more, nothing less. What she does with her time and money should really be no one's business but her own. If and when her status becomes more official then that will change but until then.............

I agree. I am jealous! I would have killed to live Kate Middleton's life when I was her age.

Heidi P. Oh there are a few loose screws who trash Kate with reckless abandon but wail like a < ed > if you accuse them of being envious of her.

My expectation as a member of the public is that she goes away and William finds a more appropriate and better and royal or at least noble girlfriend and future wife (not me). Therefore I don't see how anyone could accuse me of being jealous of Kate, since I would not want to be in her place. I'd much rather have Lord Frederick, I must say. And I am of appropriate age.

Hee, hee! I've just discovered that if you get email notification of a reply to a topic, you get to see that reply in its original, pre-edited form

So far Mary Donaldson seems to be doing a fine job as Crown Princess of Denmark and I see no reason why Kate Middleton could not do just as well in GB, if she's asked and if she wants to. IMO what's important is the suitability of the person as an individual and the fact she was not born into a royal or noble family is not really important. Kate has been well educated and brought up with money and I imagine all the doors that money can buy have been opened for her and she knows how to behave in society and is already mixing with the RF. She can learn the rest. I do agree it would be a hellish job, though. I certainly wouldn't want to take it on.

I do think that if they are not going to get engaged soon it's probably about time she started doing something constructive with her time. If she already is working, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea for a little bit of information about what she does in between polo matches and parties to be leaked to the press.

Well the original post was hardly any different I mean for some Kate may be good enough for William, but for me and many others I don't think she is good enough because she has no royal or noble backgroud, and I don't like the look of her. She just lacks charisma. Unlike crown princess Mary of Denmark who just oozes charisma sometimes. Kate is just boring and the fact she has no royal or noble lineage is important actually, since the British Royal Family needs all the prestige it can get in the future when the Queen is gone. I don't think it would be a hellish job for everyone. If the woman was perfect, then all would be perfect. I want him to marry Princess Theodora. But like I said Lord Frederick is who I want. :) I don't think Kate does anything except the polo matches, parties, holidays and shopping. She is kind of annoying. I mean look at Crown Princess Mary when she was dating Crown Prince Frederik - she had lots of jobs and continued to work and lead a responsible life.
