These are the kind of clothes she should have been wearing when she was job-hunting last year after graduation. Maybe she would have had more luck finding employment.

Her style really has improved lately

biboquinhas 09-18-2006 07:23 AM

If she look for a job now she will get it for sure!

Luv2Cruise 09-19-2006 09:46 PM

She doesn't have to look for a job. Her family is wealthy and are happy to support her. What she does with her time is her business.

Prince William has been a tear tissue to his girlfriend, Kate Middleton, in the last few weeks. The young woman mourns the death of her two grandmothers. On his father side, Valerie Middleton of 82 died in Andoverm (Hampshire) last week, barely two months after the lost of her other grandmother, Dorothy Goldsmith, of 71, because of lung cancer. Kate, with the frame of a queen, read an emotive poem in her funeral

Oh no. What a sad time for Kate right now.

My condolences to Kate, it must be very difficult losing both grandmothers so close together. My heart goes out to her and her family.

Kate can now work full time for the Firm

If Kate Middleton is, as many predict, soon to become Prince William's wife, she will be able to marry into "the Firm" unencumbered by any outside business commitments.

Mandrake hears that the 24-year-old St Andrews graduate has abandoned plans to launch a mail-order company selling children's clothes.

"I don't think she's doing it any more," Crown Princess Pavlos of Greece, Marie-Chantal, told Mandrake at a private view of Irving Penn's photographs at Hamiltons Gallery, in Mayfair, last week. "It's a shame, as it's a good business to be in."

Marie-Chantal, whose second child, Constantine Alexios, is Prince William's godson, opened an eponymous children's clothes shop in Knightsbridge in 2003 and plans to launch another in Notting Hill.

The princess, one of the three daughters of the American duty-free billionaire Robert Miller, says she has not, however, offered Kate any advice.

In July, Wills's girlfriend was reported to have parted company with Viyella, which had been supporting her plans. Viyella apparently decided to retain control of its designs and asked her to return all its business plans.



Okay so she didn't design anything and she didn't write the business plan. So what exactly did she do? Was she just going to be the face...sounds to me like she was going to use her image in aid of business. How very mercenary...

And to think, just a year ago everyone was calling her a clothing designer, etc. So basically she was going to do none of the work, but get all the glory; utterly shameless.

First of all, we don't even know if any of this is true. And second, why is Marie-Chantal chatting about Kate in public who isn't even in the royal circle? It just seems odd.

Chiyo 09-24-2006 10:32 AM

Wha? Has Marie Chantal even met Kate? How weird.

ysbel 09-24-2006 10:50 AM

Marie-Chantal knows William but I don't know if she's met Kate. From her quote, it looks like she has hasn't talked to Kate directly about the business so its possible that she hasn't met Kate.

Its also very possible that Kate simply thought about going into this type of business and then decided against it. From what I understand, the clothing design and retail market is very competitive and has very low profit margins.
