Just that really. I know some of you will think ‘who cares?’ but I find her kind of intriguing. Always so well turned out/groomed, very poised, polite...I wonder what her real personality is? How does she manage so much scrutiny?

I find her interesting

Very interesting also how awful the papers / general public were about her - ie Waity Katie and all the slagging off about her short skirts and wafty hems and now she can do no wrong and is Saint Kate

She must be on MN too I reckon

My friend used to work for her and William (and went to the wedding) and said they were both absolutely lovely and very normal and friendly. She wasn’t that complimentary about other members of the Royal Family (or Pippa) but really enjoyed working for the Cambridges.

@ShirleyPhallus definitely:

Hold on

I'll pop next door and ask her grin

Oh, I'm quite nice when you get to know me. wink

I know someone who met her in a private setting and found her absolutely charming. Think she was engaged but not married. Her father was the same, but not great feedback on the rest of her family. They are a very close knit loving family, that definitely came across.

I think she is a very pretty mute. Not much substance that we are aware of... yet.

But then she must be playing her royal role to perfection... smile and pretend to agree with everything hubby says.

I would guess that she's a Mum like most of us here and doesn't have very many friends to confide in 'How do you cope with the press?'. Not a conversation I've ever had. The criticism of her must be difficult to swallow. The fascination with her children must feel intimidating. I suspect it's lonely in a way. You have to engage with approved people. Nobody outside would get it, and they'll just sell the story.
I think she's lovely.

My mother taught her at school. She was apparently quiet, studious, sporty and unassuming. Pippa was the outgoing “popular” one

StillCoughingandLaughing Sat 09-Mar-19 18:08:54

How the hell would we know? And her name hasn’t been Middleton in eight years.

VelvetPineapple Sat 09-Mar-19 18:09:34

She is very shrewd imo. Married the top guy and planned it from the start, thus securing her future and her children’s. Plays the part to perfection as well. She’s squeaky clean and is very good at wearing just enough high street clothes to appear accessible but just enough designer to be aspirational. I admire her and wish I could have pulled off what she has.

She rarely offers to make anyone else a cuppa when she makes her own but other than that she's ok.

Crikey! Well Kate, Duchess (Royal Highness 🤷🏼‍♀️ Who knows...) if you're reading this, you are stunning! Naturally beautiful and I envy how effortless it appears to be for you to look polished and relaxed! And slim. A void of any snapped hair whatsoever. How? I mean.... How?!

Yours sincerely,

A fat, sweaty, disabled single Mum of one 4 yr old who drives her round the bloody twist!


BingLiveisRubbish Sat 09-Mar-19 18:13:03

Oh trust me to have a typo in a message to a bloody Royal! 🤦🏼‍♀️🤬


Cocopops2010 Sat 09-Mar-19 18:13:37

Thanks for all the replies! Yes I admire her as well - I know she enjoys great privilege but her role is not an easy one. She is so poised!

ZaraW Sat 09-Mar-19 18:14:59

How on earth does anyone on here know unless they grew up with her or close friends? If people have met her at a function she's doing her job and her role is to be polite, charming etc.

RomanyQueen1 Sat 09-Mar-19 18:15:21

She speaks very highly of you OP, only yesterday she was singing your praises.
YABU to ask on here as I'm sure nobody actually knows her.

Stinkytoe Sat 09-Mar-19 18:15:48

She has a mean girl vibe to me, I’ve only met her very, very briefly though.

HelloDarlin Sat 09-Mar-19 18:16:19

I loved those pics of her running around the Kings Road, shortly before she got married.
Some think it was part of a game plan to bag Wills, but I think she’s sacrificed basic freedom.

Jsmith99 Sat 09-Mar-19 18:17:52

Kate comes across to me as a mature, intelligent, sensible woman who understood exactly what she was getting herself into and did so with her eyes wide open.

I think she genuinely loves her husband, too.

KingHenrysCodpiece Sat 09-Mar-19 18:21:02

I think it must be true that she has a nice personality. She seems a lot like myself quiet and a bit introverted with real depth below the surface (I'm not bragging its just truegrin) I read she was bullied in school and generally I find when you go through that experience you become something of an empath and bend over backwards trying to make others feel comfortable, because you know how horrible it feels to be excluded and invisible.

Buddywoo Sat 09-Mar-19 18:21:08

Apparently she is very well liked by her staff and treats them well. As for Meghan......

WilliesWifey Sat 09-Mar-19 18:23:29

Of course One is on here but I she is very discrete. smile

PositiveDiscipline Sat 09-Mar-19 18:25:38

I think she has been very well counselled and is making massive efforts to be the type of royal that we respect. I think she is doing her job really well. She may not come across as exciting but as a future Queen she seems to be taking her role very seriously and dutifully.
