I have looked at a couple of other sites So yes you can speak for me!

This woman is useless. All she does is shop, attend functions, and party with Wills. I don't care how some of you want to paint it; she's useless. This girl isn't rich so what is her exuse for not having a job? How is she providing for herself? If the answer is Wills is providing for her I think I am going to vomit. Not only is this girl useless, she's a social climber looking anyway to become the William's princess, and live a life of luxury. I am hoping William will wake up to this matter and actually find a girl who is there for him and not what he can do for her. Chelsey Davy is an excellent example of a type of girl Williams should go for. Chelsey is now dating Harry but you don't see her not pursuing what she wants. She does what she please and tries to share her life with Harry. I am rooting for Chelsey!

I would think she gets a more than generous allowance from her parents and even a generous paycheck from them!

Who decides whether a person is useless, why is she useless, I don't work for a living, are you saying I and everyone like me who doesn't have to worry where the next penny is coming from is useless?

She has money, a luxurious lifestyle and looking at the way she is being ripped apart, I would think she wishes the man she fell in love with was not a prince!

I have nothing much against Chelsy, apart from her background and her fathers associates, but I would hope that this is not the sort of girl William or Harry end up with!

In fairness we only know what the press chooses to print, so we really don't know that she does with her time and we don't really know where William and Kat's realtionship is at this point. They are still young and maybe wisely waiting to be sure. You can't be all things to all people and if you try you will wind up pleasing know one including yourself. I may make comments about what I see on the boards but I will always keep an open mind. JMO

The problem with Kate not working after graduating from University 17 months ago is that part of her appeal in the first place was that she was from a normal middle class family. She seemed smart and down-to-earth, not a lazy aristocratic slouch who doesn't work but attends parties and polo matches, and generally has nothing going for them, like a career, in their lives.

Thanks for that, not everyone who works is smart, down to earth or a diplomat!

It must be wonderful to have such a clear cut idea of how other people live their lives, based on a few pictures in the media.

I am always amazed that people constantly harp on Kate not having a job being and being called useless (not to pick on kristin2006-she isn't the first to say it) and lazy. Again, just because we see pics of her in the press shopping or hanging around a polo field that doesn't mean that is all she does. Is anyone here around her 24/7?

While I agree that maybe having a job could make her a little more well rounded for the position of being a member of the Royal Family, who are we to say that 1) she is definitely going to marry into the Royal Family; and 2) because she doesn't have a job experience she won't fit in. Basically, as long as she is not on the dole and living off the government, its no one's business but hers if she is supported by her parents (who are private citizens) or William (as long as he uses his personal money).

Sorry to be so abrupt...but sometimes it gets frustrating reading some of these posts. You certainly are entitled to like to dislike Kate for any reason...I just think its a shame that people make judgement calls on anyones personality based upon a few pics or newspaper articles. I am sorry if I offended anyone.

I have not based my opinion on a few pictures in the media. My post speaks for itself. Kate should have a job.

I don't dislike Kate. I have been a supporter of hers from the beginning. I'm just giving some constructive criticism, which if she gets her wish and marries William, she will be receiving a lot of.

Not to turn this into the Kate/job situation....but why should Kate have a job? Other than not using her education, she is not hurting anyone but herself by not working. She is not using the system to support herself, she is not on the streets asking for money...she is not doing any of those things.

And yes, when she marries into the family she will get a lot of criticism.....but the key word is WHEN.

I'm still confused as to why nobody believes that she works for her family. I'm sure she puts in some hours there. Anyway I think it is good the press doesn't know everything about her life. Every couple of weeks we get pictures of her shopping. I think it is hard to beleive that when she is not shopping she is sitting at home watching the grass grow or something. I'm sure like normal people she does other activities. Whether or not she has a job doesn't really matter, but it is a stretch to say all she does is shop just because all the pictures we see of her are of shopping.

I'm still curious about this cheating thing, but I haven't read anything new about it yet

You're right about "WHEN" and I would add "IF" since PW's "roving eye" is once again on the prowl, allegedly.

I stated in an earlier post that what we see is what we are fed by the media and at the risk of repeating myself I will say once more that we don't really know how she spends her time and what level the relationship is with William. We only see what we are allowed to by both the royals and the press. Part of the fun of posting is playing a bit of a guessing game and people are entitled to their opinions but none of us really has the answer. JMO

I did say "allegedly."

What you are saying, is that anyone who is lucky enough not to have to work, is a lazy slouch and has nothing going for them.
It seems a very sweeping statement and very judgemental of a situation you are not privy to.

You seem to be stating that you or anyone who has visible employment, is smart, down to earth and not a slouch, when it is clear IMO, that some people who have a job are neither smart or diplomatic.

Why should Catherine let anyone know whether she is in paid employment and if she is not, why is that a reason to rip her apart?

If she hasn't got a job and doesn't need to work to have spending money, good luck to her, it will leave a job available to someone who has no option but to work for their living!

I totally agree with you. What do people think she does with the rest of her time, based on the few pictures and articles that we have seen, she must be watching tv or laying in bed 10 months of the year!

Hibou made a very good point in her/his last post. I always try to keep that in mind but sometimes my wishful thinking gets the better of me. I admit that I'm probably one of the more eager to believe that Wills and Kate are committed for life. I feel like Britain is long due for a royal wedding and some little royals to run around and stir up some noise! Not that Wills and Kate should marry for those reasons of course!

I do not agree with the fact that she is useless just because she does not have a job and even if he is supporting her why not? obviously she is a very smart girl to win Prince William's heart! she must have something that we don't see but I think Prince William is smart too and if she was useless I don't think he would be with her. I say good for her!

I think that Kate Middleton and Prince William have either been secretly engaged or "have an understanding."

I think that this occurred sometime after they both graduated from St Andrews. This is the reason I think she stopped looking for a job.

I think the Palace etc decided that it would be better for her to suffer any potential criticism for not having a job than getting into trouble the way Sophie did (remember the Fake Sheik episode) when she tried to have a career and be Royal. Thus, I think she is simply following "orders."

I think things might have been different if Kate had been older and already immersed in a career when she met Prince William.

If things do not eventually lead to the alter for Kate and William, I think we will see her quietly move into a job/career after everything has blown over.

For now, she is fortunate to be able to be financially independent and not need everyday employment.

Ladies, Kate hate trolls. Just like teeth, ignore them and they'll go away.
