Shouldn't we expect just a little bit more of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Never turned up for one single memorial service for the armed forces, but there at Center Court, Wimbledon, rubbing shoulders with a load of celebs,and entertaining Brad and Angelina Pitt at Kensington Palace. Is this what her royal life boils down to.

She's the most fucking idle woman in Britain. I simply cannot bear her.

They're parasites, nothing surprises me with them.

She's a mother of two.

Is that not enough?

Damnautocorrect Sat 18-Jul-15 20:22:13

Isn't she on maternity leave still?

MrsHathaway Sat 18-Jul-15 20:22:47

A quick Google would have shown you that she goes to lots of memorial services including the main Remembrance service at the Cenotaph.

Lots of visiting schools and hospitals and outreach centres and always having to look perfect and having people criticise every single thing you ever do or don't do and never ever being alone ever... Not a life I'd want.

Yabu, she's on maternity leave.

Didn't she just have a baby? I didn't do much but child-rearing when I was on maternity leave.

HelloNewman Sat 18-Jul-15 20:24:28

I had a baby in May (as I think she did).

I was definitely still sat on my arse and breast feeding by late July.

I am not a fan of the Royals, but also care not a jot about what they are or are not doing.

I didn't think that royal spouses usually turned out for memorial events? That is usually the role of the royals who hold positions in the Armed Forces. Although she has represented the Duke at some military events, presumably when he was unable attend himself.

HolidayForever Sat 18-Jul-15 20:25:20

I think the royal family were fairly prominent at the memorial services weren't they? She has two young kids and probably deserves a bit of down time. You don't really know what she does in her spare time do you? I would leave her alone.
Sounds like sour grapes to me.

MagicalHamSandwich Sat 18-Jul-15 20:25:38

Well, she's kind of useless. And mind-numbingly bland.

That having been said, I don't exactly blame her for it. Her role is essentially to look pretty and pop out and heir and a spare. Nobody really wants her to have opinions, which would inevitably be opposed by someone somewhere thus creating unwanted controversy. I guess it's kind of inherent in a monarchical system. One more good reason to finally switch to an elected head of state!

The most idle woman in Britain? Uh, get out much?

I don't care what she does or doesn't do, I just admire the fact that any human being can face the world at all when every bloody facet of her entire being is picked apart by people who care/know sod all about her.

ThroughThickAndThin01 Sat 18-Jul-15 20:26:41

Yabu. I hope she loved her Wimbledon day(s).

sweetgrape Sat 18-Jul-15 20:26:44

Apparently she got extended maternity leave, from what I do not know. Muriel no being a mother of two is no excuse, she has servants, otherwise how did she manage to get to Wimbledon. Do you really think she's bogged down with all the work of a new baby??

cuntycowfacemonkey Sat 18-Jul-15 20:27:02

She's been to loads of memorial services confused

seriously who cares about this type of thing?

EustaciaBenson Sat 18-Jul-15 20:27:18

Shes on maternity leave, she had a baby in April, its now July.... So she went to a social event and had a party whilst off on maternity leave big deal.

SanityClause Sat 18-Jul-15 20:27:50

Not a life I'd want.

It's a life she chose though.

BeatieBo Sat 18-Jul-15 20:28:33

YABU. Should she not be allowed maternity leave?

MrsItsNoworNotatAll Sat 18-Jul-15 20:29:11

You actually give a flying fuck what she does????

MagicalHamSandwich Sat 18-Jul-15 20:29:25

Actually, what she really does deserve to be criticized for is the eyeliner of doom, though! Horrible, just horrible! grin
