Don’t we all?
Even though I do not agree with monarchies and can care less about any royal families (though I do like Prince William and now Kate!), I kind of feel bad for Kate Middleton. Usually, I don’t feel bad for people in that position because, didn’t they know what they were getting themselves into? But in the case of Kate, it was love—which is a difference force. She had to have done it for love; I mean those two look madly in love!
A lot of us girls have dreamt of marrying a prince one day (thanks, Disney), but nobody tells you that marrying a real-life prince is a different story. As big as my crush for Prince William was when he was in his cute years, given the opportunity to marry him and enter that family, I would’ve just said HELL NO! to his proposal. But again, love conquers it all.
Going back to Kate, she’s been under so much scrutiny for as long as she’s been with Prince William, and even more now that she’s become a princess—or “Duchess” (god I hate that name), especially by the female kind. Her own country criticizes her if she “parades around” wearing different expensive outfits each time. Then, her own country criticizes her if she recycles her clothes. The English people just aren’t happy about anything, are they? The fashion critics here in the US couldn’t be harsher on her either. Kate looks fine the way she is.
I think people just need to realize that she’s not in Hollywood. And actually, maybe Hollywood should learn a thing or two about her. Their extravaganzas appall me. Millions of kids around the world live in poverty and starve of hunger, while Hollywood’s stars wipe their butts with $100 bills. Disgusting. And they just want Kate to join the club. But she won’t. And they’re mad. They tried to do the same with First Lady Michelle Obama, but I think they’ve finally gotten it–they won’t influence her. That’s one reason that I praise these two women; for their strong head and common sense.
I hope she continues being herself and not minding the critics. She’s doing a good job.
