Kim Kardashian attends Marine Corps Ball & she was snubbed by Duchess Kate

Ugh, I feel like this Kim Kardashian story is going to bring a lot of hate, and I’m just not feeling it for Kim today. I mean, she’s not my favorite person or anything, but I’m not going to bash her for this. As it turns out, Kim was some Marine’s special VIP date at a North Carolina Marine Corps Ball last night. Kim managed to leak the news yesterday, with a source telling Us Weekly that Kim had magnanimously re-arranged her schedule to attend the ball:

North Carolina’s Marine Corps servicemen and women are about to get quite the VIP visitor! Kim Kardashian is set to attend the HQ Battery 10th Marine Birthday Ball Nov. 15 in North Carolina, a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. Invited by an unnamed serviceman months ago, the busy reality star — currently filming her E! spinoff Kourtney & Kim Take Miami — rearranged her schedule to be able to attend.

“One of the Marines asked her to attend as a special guest of the event and she changed her schedule so she could be there,” the insider reports. “She’s honored that she was invited.”

Preparing for her big night out early Thursday with what Kardashian, 32, called the “best workout ever” on Twitter, the reality star will join the ranks of celebs like Justin Timberlake, Mila Kunis and Kristin Cavallari, who all attended military bashes in 2011.

Kardashian returned to the States earlier this week after a whirlwind trip to London to promote her Kardashian Kollection with sisters Kourtney and Khloe. Along for the ride in the U.K.? Kardashian’s boyfriend of seven months, Kanye West.

While she’ll mix and mingle with eligible bachelors at Thursday’s Marine Ball, Kardashian only has eyes for West — and pals predict the couple will get engaged before too long. “Kim thinks they’ll get engaged and try for a baby once the divorce is final,” a confidant tells Us Weekly of Kardashian, who is still legally married to Kris Humphries more than one year after filing for divorce in October 2011. “Kanye is actually being very patient.”

See? This wasn’t a situation where Kim talked her way into an invite or she just wanted to blatantly copy Mila Kunis or something. She was asked and she accepted. Now, I do wonder why this particular dude was all “Yes, Kim Kardashian is my ideal date!” I wonder if Kim was like his fifth choice or something, behind Scarlet Johansson, Natalie Portman and maybe Emma Stone. Or maybe the dude just loves Kim K. No judgement.

Meanwhile, The Enquirer has a funny/weird story about Kim thinking that she was fancy enough to be invited to tea with the Duchess of Cambridge. The sad part is that I think Kim Kardashian probably has a better work ethic than Duchess Kate:

THE princess of American reality TV is getting the royal brush-off from the future Queen of England! During a London trip to promote her clan’s clothing line, KIM KARDASHIAN put word out that she’d like to take tea with Prince William’s wife KATE MIDDLETON, said a source. But Buckingham Palace sent back a not-so-diplomatic answer – GET REALl!

“Kim wasn’t happy because she’s obsessed with Kate, but the Duchess of Cambridge has no interest in be­coming part of the Kardashian publicity machine,” said an insider close to the royal family. “Kate can’t stand their style, and from what she knows about their TV show, it’s just a bunch of trashy people primping and yelling at each other. She’s far too polite to diss Kim to her face, but she’s got enough on her plate without having tea with someone like her.”

Royalty-crazy Kim headed across the Atlantic with her sister Kourtney for the early November launch of their Kardashian Kollection fashion line. Her beau Kanye West came along, and he encouraged his bootylicious squeeze to contact the duchess, said the source.

“Kanye has met Prince William, who’s a big fan of his music, and he’s become a big fan of Kate too,” said the source. “He’s even suggested to Kim that she could take a leaf out of the royal beauty’s book and tone down her makeup for a more natural look.”

In a bold move, the Kardashian sisters offered Kate free samples from their British line, which in­cludes skintight sequin minidresses, pleather pants, blue leopard-print tops and gold-studded bags, accord­ing to the source. But the Kardashians shouldn’t expect any free publicity from England’s future queen.

“Kate wouldn’t be caught dead in a Kardashian outfit!” sniffed the source. “The Duchess gets free clothes sent to her every day of the week, and she always sends them back. The royal family is very careful about not being seen to endorse any product. It’s just not proper. Quite apart from that, the Kardashian outfits just aren’t appropriate for a duchess. Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket!”

[From The National Enquirer]

A few things. One, I actually doubt that Kim made any kind of overtures to Duchess Kate. Two, Duchess Kate used to dress in clingy, low-cut silk jersey dresses too, but that was when she was just hanging around and partying and vacationing for nine years, waiting for William to propose. Three, maybe Kate is pissed off at Kanye’s lyric in “N—as in Paris”: “Prince William ain’t do it right if you ask me cuz if it was me I’d marry Kate & Ashley.” Four, if it weren’t for the royal title, Kate really wouldn’t be that much different than Kim. I mean, really.

    If you hate Kim you only feed her publicity monster, feel nothing. NOTHING and eventually…she’ll evaporate never to be seen again.

    Honestly though the irony is when you break it down. Kim’s most annoying tendency is her bad clothing and fameho tactics, after that she really is inoffensive. If she could get either under control she’d be less of a public joke and get less hate.

    • BB says:

      I’m always amazed how people will believe and circulate a story from The National Enquirer. This is the same tabloid that reported OJ Simpson was Khloe’s father and had added her to his will. The National Enquirer basically made up a story based on what has been seen on their reality show.

    • Liz says:

      oh, please, I absolutely do believe she wanted to have tea with Kate. Her publicity machine billed her whole wedding as the American royal wedding. I do believe she is obsessed with being America’s princess and wants more than anything to be seen with the real deal.

      • ordweel says:

        Kate Mddleton is just trash who boinked the top guy in England, she’s nothing special and she is not even pretty.
        Kate was just a easy girl who laid on her back for ten years and practically forced herself on a weak prince until he married her. She had no job, no career, her parents supported her. Kate has her ass naked all over the papers, she takes her clothes off in public because it was photographed. The Middletn’s are just low end Kardashians, because at least the Kardashian’s are honest about thier careers. Kate and her parents have just all latched themselves onto a weak Prince. Kate is skanky as Kim and who is to say there is no sex tape of Kate. William blocke photos and footage from coming out of those balcony scenes, so who knows what she was doing out there and also Kate use attend private parties , look up the stories about her friend who has parties.

  2. Megan says:

    And I doubt Kate dissed their show…. She said her favorite show was TOWIE

    • Amelia says:

      She seriously said that?
      I’m having a tough time believing that.
      …Made in Chelsea, however ;)

    • HadleyB says:

      I don’t watch the show, I don’t watch a lot of shows but I know the jist of them, whose in them, basic stuff just from the net, people talking, being around others so while you may not watch a show, listen to certain music a lot of times you know what people are referring to … unless you live in a cave or are Madonna who seriously thinks she is the only one that exists in todays celeb culture.

      So I am sure Kate knows of their show, and knows who they are .. maybe not every detail like fans but I am sure she is aware of the type of family they are.

  3. Megan says:

    And I doubt Kate dissed their show…. She said her favorite show was TOWIE and I wouldn’t call that classy television

  4. emmie_a says:

    Ok she went to the ball – but she only did it because other famous people have accepted invitations in the past and they all got tons of press coverage because of their good deed. I highly doubt she would have gone if other celebrities hadn’t already done this.

    And the Daily Mail was calling KK ‘American Royalty’ or ‘America’s Princess’ (or something like that) when she was in London last week. Barf. There is nothing royal about her.

  5. the original bellaluna says:

    I think “just a bunch of trashy people primping and yelling at each other” just might be my new Gold-Standard for back-handed bitchiness. Because that really had me in fits!! :-D

  6. Steeze says:

    i always thought the lyric was chris hansen ain’t do it right if you ask me cuz…

    im such a weirdo!

  7. Eleonor says:

    even if she is a fan Kate can’t accept a tea with Kim,it wouldn’t be a good publicity having a tea with someone who got fame thanks to a pr0n.

  8. truthful says:

    There is no comparision between the two, PERIOD.

    America has this trick thinking she is a TRUE celeb, she is NOT!

    dumb twat

  9. rylwsp says:

    Kim is probably more self-made than Kate.
    Both wear hair extensions, both have appeared nude to the masses, except Kim is a much harder worker than Kate.

    The Middleton’s ARE the Kardashian’s of England, except the Kardashian’s make a lot more money.

    • GoodCapon says:

      The two families’ actions may not be entirely similar but in the end they are not that different: they’re all scheming famewhores.

      - The Middletons pimped Kate to the highest bidder (i.e. Prince William)
      - Kate was a booty call of a prince for 10 years while doing nothing in the process (couldn’t even lift a finger for charity!)
      - The family is not above getting close to photographers and magazines for publicity (They have HELLO! exclusives, James especially baked some cakes with pictures of the RF in it)
      - They’re also not above cashing in on their connections (Kendall and Kylie, Pippa)

  10. Kate says:

    Even if this story isn’t true, it’s plausible. And I think that’s the problem with KK’s fame-whorey ways: stuff like this is absolutely plausible and people will believe it because everything she does enforces the idea that something like this *can* be true. They could easily say she was in D.C. and wanted to meet the First Lady because she’s a big fan — who has mingled with Beyonce and Jay-Z — and that Michelle Obama’s people shot her down. I just made that up, but it seems totally possible.

    • gigi says:

      I was just thinking that it’s pimp mama Kris’ famewhoring machinery that puts out these kinds of stories. Because when you put yourself on the opposing side of someone like Kate, the future Queen of England, that somehow puts you a little closer to equal footing, at least in the mind of a public that loves to debate. Because suddenly a comparison has to be made. I mean, just look at these comments… people actually ARE now comparing the two. As if!

      Say what you want about Kate’s clinger path to the throne, but there is no universe in which she can be compared to a person who marketed their own sex tape to become famous. It’s really quite ridiculous. But smart on pimp mom’s part, very smart.

      • Jessica says:

        Gigi, Kate “sold” her body to become famous, too. She walked the runway nearly naked to get Will’s attention and then was at his beck-and-call as a booty call for 8 years before he asked her to marry him. And of course he dumped her and publicly cheated on her numerous times, and she always took him back–because she wanted the “job” as his wife. Don’t kid yourself, girl, Kate’s a tacky fame-whore, too.

  11. Anna says:

    Let’s not be hursh with Kate!
    She would never be Kim, with or without Will.
    I agree that royals are not above the common people, but as individuals: Kate is above Kim.

    • Angelic 20 says:

      Really why? if someone put a gun on my head and force me to choose,i pick Kim over Kate.she at least work for her own money, live her life on her terms, exploit herself and nobody else and is not dependent on either mommy Daddy fil to buy her things. Kate has been living on tax payers funded home, is being pimped out by her mother ever since she met William, and now depending on fil to buy her clothes and earlier on Mummy and Daddy plus she was a major fame whore when William let her out of his leech I.e when they broke up.
      She said I liked towie and said some girl should not get back with some guy in that show last year visiting a hospital in Liverpool I guess,dm wrote a whole article on it.

      • izzy4ya says:

        I would go with Kate. She might be lazy, but at least she’s quiet. If Kate every makes a twitter or instagram account detailing her every move, I’ll reconsider.

      • LAK says:

        Please let’s not pretend that Kate and The Middletons don’t use twitter, instagram as their personal choice. If they did that without William’s express permission, and yes I am using that word, they’d be frozen out of the inner circle faster than you can say Queen Consort. He is notorious for doing that to people/friends he deems untrustworthy.

        As it is, they use devious methods of getting their story out via media contacts on the daily mail, Vanity Fair and Hello Magazine to name a few of the publications used. And they have a few paps on speed dail too.

  12. Dorothy says:

    First, Kardashians don’t do ANYTHING without thinking about how it will benefit them.. Secondly, good to see that Kate will not slum it in Kardashians wear. Cheap , cheap clothing more fitting a hooker.

  13. Tiffany says:

    Kate has a lot on her plate. *crickets* Doing what exactly.

  14. Lindsey says:

    I think it’s really gross when your lover is giving you an intimate, eyes-closed kiss (even on the cheek) that you’re still posing-hard for the camera. GROSS

  15. Ally says:

    I love it, comparing Kate to KK – so ridiculous but also hilarious.

  16. judyjudy says:

    She really looks like her mom in that first pic.

  17. Murphy says:

    Kim thinking that Kate would even entertain the idea is insulting.

    However, “Kate has enough on her plate” is laughable in both the intended and literal sense. She’s sooo busy getting her hair done and shopping.

  18. Tuxedo Cat says:

    I don’t know how Kim could possibly expect that Kate would want to meet with her after Kanye dissed Kate in a song!!

  19. GoodCapon says:

    Sadly I think some people are blinded by Kate and the Middletons’ connection to royalty. People probably think they are ‘better’ but in reality they’re just as every bit as tacky as the Kardashians.

    A turd wrapped in glitter is a turd.

  20. Victoria1 says:

    I’m surprised Kim didn’t whore out her time at the Marine ball or did I miss it? Don’t they show the people who asked said celebrity and do a minor piece on them? Or am I thinking of last year?
    But anyway I’m glad she supported the troops, I want to know if the dude got a “squeeze” out of it. Haha

  21. Jackson says:

    No, I have to disagree. I don’t think Kate would be like KK if she were just “Kate.” KK is pure trash with cash.

  22. J7 says:

    I wonder if people will ever stop idolizing people like the Kardashians?

  23. Annie says:

    Well, I mean… You’re not wrong! If William hadn’t married her and had become engaged to someone else, Kate would be like a Kardashian right now with useless book deals or tv deals. A socialite and nothing more. She’s really not that different, she just got very lucky. Girlfriend was trashy too at one point and did nothing but vacation and party, and when the relationship finally became serious all she did was copy Diana’s wardrobe to the smallest detail to send a message to the people AND to William himself. Coniving. This is why England called her Kate Middleclass. She hunt down William since college. Her parents are notorious social climbers. The royal family hasn’t found a thirstier famewhore since the Tudors met Anne Boleynn and her family. And people gave Diana shit. She was handpicked by the Queen. Charles’ love was always Camila.

    That being said, she is royalty now, something Kim likes to see herself as too, with that tacky ass wedding and the absurd ammount of money she wastes on clothes and cars. She thinks she’s an American princess. So excuse me if I gloat and do a Nelson HA-HA! Because Kate has the title. All Kim has is a line of hooker after Christmas clothes, a sex tape and embarrassing shows.

  24. CF says:

    She did not go as a date! She went as a VIP.

    One of the Marines asked her to attend as a special guest of the event.

    She reached out and got the invite as a special guest of the event, not of a marine. basically she had to be extra special in order to go.

  25. Allison says:

    kate should get real! aren’t the middletons some sort of the british kardashian version..with their wannabe book writers, and their bare bo*bs and….

  26. LAK says:

    I don’t understand why people think Kate wouldn’t meet Kim. Royals meet celebs privately all the time. The only problem is that Kim lives her life infront of cameras so would tweet or post a picture or take cameras with her which is the ONLY reason they can’t meet should kate desire it.

    In terms of one being better than the other, I would say that they both made their fortunes on their backs BUT Kim has a work ethic and doesn’t expect to be praised/cossetted/infantilised etc based upon the man she’s sleeping with. If anything, Kim is trying in her own way to project a princess image, however trashy we may think it is.

    Kate, to date, hasn’t built on the hand she’s been dealt to project anything other than THAT original piece of work.

    Kim is overwhelming in her famewhorey ways BUT she’s doing a lot better than Kate, and no gilded cage to boot!!

  27. claire says:

    That last picture could have been really cute and sweet if she had been acknowledging Kanye and not seeking out the camera.

  28. Kellie says:

    Kim and Kate are like apples and the only difference is that one is green and one is red- but at the core its still an apple.

  29. Tiffany27 says:

    I thought he said Mary Kate and Ashley, not marry Kate and Ashley. But I’m horrible with rap lyrics so you’re probably right lol.

  30. lylaooo says:

    im soo sooo tired of kim…i wish people stop paying atention to her…she´s way to overexposed…it´s just too muchh..she´s everywhere..and i think she´s more sympathetic with her sister khloe..but ash… im just tiredd her and her mom

  31. littlestar says:

    I am not a fan of Kim Kardashian by any means, and I think the way she destroyed her natural beauty by too much fillers and botox is incredibly sad, but I definitely agree with Kaiser on this. Kim has WAY more of a work ethic than Duchess Kate does, by far. Like come on ya’ll, it’s hard work to pimp yourself and your family out daily :D !

    Also, I’m not sure if anyone has pointed this out or not, but isn’t it interesting that Kim has friends (some are hanger ons, like that Jonathon Cheban guy, some seem like actual friends like that LaLa girl) and Kate has no friends, besides Pippa? And all the stories we hear of Kate having any kind of communication with other women is when she disses them. Remember how the wives of William’s search and rescue team had a club and Kate refused to join?…

  32. Cheryl says:

    Puh-lease….Duchess Kate and Kim are not even in the same universe and the Duchess would not be caught DEAD in one of their trashy outfits. Kim is delusional and Kate will NEVER have tea with her…..disgusting!

    • Add says:

      Comparing these two is hilarious. Kate would have no problem accepting the freebies– she accepted freebies for years before her wedding! She’s not saying no because the clothes are too trashy either. She wore trashy clothes for years! She’s saying no because of the image she wants to project. Both of these women are useless and add no value to the world. At least Kim works for her money.

  33. Quinn says:

    ‘if it weren’t for the royal title, Kate really wouldn’t be that much different than Kim’

    I understand you dislike Dutchess Kate but in no way is she the same as Kim – I mean come on!!!

    Plus what is with the criticism on Kate wearing party dresses in her twenties? I think we all have worn dresses in the past that we would deem inappropriate today due to age / maturation of personal taste. Heck I used to wear low-cut mini party dresses but wouldn’t be seen dead in a Kardashian designed outfit.

  34. hmmmm says:

    Wait till next week you know MOMMA Kris will have something out there to counter act this.. KIM will be going to tea with the queen.. I can see it now… lol

  35. Sydney says:

    According to the Superficial, she left 15mins after dinner was served. So basically she turned up, got photographed, stayed for starters then left. But no you’re right, this obviously wasn’t a publicity stunt by any means.

  36. skilo says:

    “Four, if it weren’t for the royal title, Kate really wouldn’t be that much different than Kim. I mean, really.”

    Well at least, almost the entire world hasn’t seen the duchess being used as some dudes urinal/hooker combo.

  37. Jessica says:

    Kim K. is a trashy fame-whore who probably doesn’t have a sincere bone in her body if it doesnn’t involve herself, and who seeks out the camera at every possible event. Kate Middleton is a trashy fame-whore who doesn’t have a sincere bone in her body if it doesn’t involve herself, and who seeks out the camera at every possible event. And you people say they are nothing alike? I beg to differ.
    Having said that, I would pick Kim K over Kate M in a heartbeat. Kim may be an annoying pile of trash, but at least she works for her money (it’s the public’s fault she’s famous after all, if no one paid attention to her she wouldn’t be famous). Kate on the other hand is funded by the tax payer; and is only famous because she married a prince. You take PW away, and Kate is not famous at all. You’d have to take a lot more away from Kim to make her irrelivent.
    A WORKING, annoying, fame-whore VERSUS a TAXPAYER-FUNDED, annoying, fame-whore…. really is there any question?

  38. Bernice says:

    Kate is NOTHING like Kim Kardashian. If she wasn’t married to Prince William she would be living a low key English life. I am constantly incensed at the hate thrown at Kate. We have no idea what she does with her time and it’s not our place to question it. She’s pbly learning history of the crown, observing the Queen, staying out of Camillia’s machinations, making a home for William, trying to live with some normalcy so she has a sense of the needs of the English people when she does become Queen. She shops for food, cooks dinner, walks her dog, keeps her house, visits her family and attends to what you or I would feel were “many” obligations. She does it with a smile, humor and self-deprecation.

    Unlike Ms. K who is nothing more than an overly made up, ever expanding fame whore who devotes at least 4 hours a day to putting on and taking off make-up, preferably while wrapped in a tight sheer dress/robes. Ugh.

    • sellum says:

      Kate caught William’s eye while modeling underwear, the girl is tacky, KATE without William is just a easy girl who laid on her back for 10 yrs waiting for a proposal. She never had a job, because she was too busy being William’s booty call. She’s tacky and cheap, William wanted to date her because she was already with his friend and he asked was the friend finished with her because he’d like to have a go.
      That’s why she had no problem getting naked on that balcony with William, she had already been doing that sort of thing since the beginning.

    • Jessica says:

      It’s not our place to question it? Are you a British taxpayer? Because if you are then it most certainly is your place to question it. It is definitely your place to question why she deserves to get her clothes, house, hair, vacations and everything else funded by your tax dollars.

      “We have no idea what she does with her time” Well it certainly isn’t charity work. And it should be. The reason the RF is still allowed to be in place and recieve money from the taxpayer is because they do good works for the community and the state and to represent the country abroad. Kate rarely does any actually charity work that involves getting her hands dirty and actually working. Most of her engagements have been the show-up-and-get-your-picture-taken type. And then of course there’s that naked picture thing, how is any foreign leader supposed to look at her with respect as a representation of her country?

      And have you read or heard the comments she’s made to people while at these charity events? Because if you had then you would agree that her time certainly isn’t spent learning about the events/charities she’s going to.

      And the thing about doing what “you and I” do everyday… Isn’t she supposed to be better than us? I mean, that’s why that family is allowed to recieve taxpayer money, right? Because they’re so much better than us? Why, if all she’s doing is everything we do, is anyone giving her tax money?

  39. Vava says:

    Duchess Kate is busy trying to test the smell of the tea by smelling it. ;-) And hopefully she is reading up on Faberge Eggs……….

  40. Dommy Dearest says:

    ” Four, if it weren’t for the royal title, Kate really wouldn’t be that much different than Kim. I mean, really. ”

    Funniest part of the whole story. Please tell me that Snooki and the Queen wouldn’t be that much different from one another if the Queen didn’t have her title.

  41. Mike hunt says:

    I totally agree with number four. What makes Kate so different? She’s only known for f’ing william. Kim might be a cam whore but at least she’s real about it and is making her own money.. Haters can hate but that girl is a true bussiness woman and you can’t argue with that.

  42. Kristen says:

    I gotta say, I really wish everyone (and this means you Celebitchy!) would just get off of Kate’s case already. She’s been married about a year and a half, she’s finding her way as a royal, and I don’t think she’s lazy. I mean for God’s sake people, everyone who has elevated Princess Diana to saint-like status seems to forget that she didn’t start any of her charitable endeavors until several YEARS after her marriage. And the whole snarky “waity-Katie” is just ridiculous. I come on this site to make fun of celebrities who are total idiots and deserve to be mocked mercilessly, but Kate doesn’t rise to that level in the least bit. As far as I can see, she’s conducted herself with the utmost class, dignity, and decorum. And she’s ALWAYS acted like that, long before she officially became a royal. She seems like a genuinely nice girl who really loves her husband, and to say that trash like Kim Kardashian has more ambition is nothing less than revolting. Yeah, Kim K is ambitious alright. She’s famous for making a disgusting sex tape, during which she was urinated on, and since then she’s pimped herself out for anything and everything. If that’s “ambition”, then I’ll take “lazy Kate” any day.

    • LAK says:

      Clearly you ONLY started to take notice of Kate AFTER she got engaged and the Palace had white washed her image and she’d made herself over in terms of her clothing because if you knew anything, you wouldn’t be making this statement.

      Further, it’s amazing that you would rewrite history to diminish Diana’s work record in order to justify Kate’s lack of one.

      FYI, Diana started working on her honeymoon. Their honeymoon cruise, started the day after the wedding was a working cruise that involved many high level hostings of foreign dignitaries around the mediteranea. She gave her first speech, IN WELSH, within 6months of her wedding. She made 200 engagements as well as a tour in her 1st year, AND she was pregnant throught it all. Bar afew months break for maternity leave, she went back to work at the same rate which continued to build until the last couple of year when she reduced the number of patronages so that she could be MORE hands on with a few.

      As for the kim comparison, let the underwear catwalk show, the numerous semi naked /crotch shots/drunk falling out of clubs, partying and vacationing pictures PRE-Engagement speak for themselves.

      Not to mention the paps and journalists she’s collaborated with to make herself look like princess material. She may not be as extreme or as obvious in her methods, but she’s been as tenacious as Kim.

      And the final word to The Queen who was so irritated at the lack of work ethic before the wedding, that she demanded Kate get a job. Which she did, sort of. But quit 9mths of part time work later because it interfered with her life. That’s a direct quote from her boss!

      • Another K says:

        But LAK, you’re always lecturing us that the queen does not get involved in who does what in the royal family. So I would think that the queen wouldn’t have been particularly interested if Kate was working or not before she got married. Please correct if I’m wrong. As if I even need to ask.

      • LAK says:

        @Another K – clearly, you’d rather pick a fight with me than acknowledge the truth. Just because the queen intervened ONCE doesn’t mean she does it all the time, or will ever do it again. Who am I to argue with statements expressed by every single member of her family that’s ever commented on her familial and working relationship with them??!!!!

        What I find interesting about your appearance on the Kate threads is that for the most part you want to put a rebuttal to my statements, that aren’t derogatory, abusive or commenting on Kate’s person or personality. I only comment on actions and make conclusions based on actions. I have positives and negatives to say about various members of the family BUT you respond to only my Kate comments, whilst ignoring the really derogatory and abusive comments made by other posters on here. So in your world, better for someone to name call Kate horrible names, and be downright abusive than to make a rational assessment of her behaviour. I have never said that Kate can’t change nor do I think her mistakes can’t be rectified. My comments are always in that spirit. And when she does good, I also point that out but maybe you don’t want t rebut THOSE comments.

        It’s quite a negative world you live in.

        @LAK Nah, I’m a happy girl, no negativity here. However, I do like to comment on your statements because you are always so overly informed and seem to know such detail. I secretly hope that you work in one of the palace offices and one day will present us with an incredible scoop. And yeah, I do like Kate Middleton. Obviously I don’t know her, but she seems to be trying her best. My opinion is quite the minority here, I realize, but it doesn’t make sense to get too worked up over it. I love the historical aspect of the royal family. I just wish there had been a celebitchy during the Tudor age! Wouldn’t that have been fun!

    even though kate wasnt born a royal it would still be very bad etiquette to meet up with a kartrashian, considering the life choices theyve made. putting out a sex tape is about the lowest thing you can do. the royals have enough scandals to deal with thanks to prince harry lol how exactly would you explain to the queen that you met up with a porn star? lol no way!!

    kate still has her whole life ahead, im pretty sure the royals have their little training going on with her. theyre not gonna let her do stuff so soon, she needs to prove she can handle those situations first. and we dont know whats really going on in that family. i doubt shes layin on her couch all day long watching sh*tty tv.

    and anyone bashing her for living off tax payers money. the whole royal family lives on tax money? bash the queen etc while youre at it. but what would england be without the royals? how many people would be going to see buckingham palace? the money they take from tax they kind of bring back by luring tourists into the country?

    and i totally believe kim left the ball right after dinner. its not like she has any empathy, why would she stay longer than necessary? lol

    i would actually PAY for a dr phil intervention with the trashian clan. that would be even better than the lohan interview lol arghhhh i can dream..

    • LAK says:

      If you read any british news sites or british sites in general, you would know that British people do bash ALL the royals including The Queen for being tax payer funded.

      The reason people DEMAND that Kate do some work is because of the tax payer issue. It’s the ONLY reason, aside from genuine charitable efforts, that any of them perform royal duties and why people are pissed off at Kate. William has the excuse of his other ‘job’, but Kate doesn’t.

      There is ongoing chatter about whether or not the monarchy can survive The Queen based upon the tax payer issue.

      • oh dear says:

        i do actually read english papers. i do get why people would be peed off paying some family who in their eyes dont do anything for it. but you have to remember that they function as the biggest tourism draw. were it not for that institution (including the palace etc.) im willing to bet that england (not including scotland etc here) would have half the tourism it has now. i know i wouldnt go there for the football, fish and chips, double-decker buses and the awesome chavs and knife culture that has emerged in recent years.

        just give her time to prove herself. as others have said, diana didnt start with charity in her first years either.

        it will be very interesting to see how things change when the monarchy is abolished. i mean, i do enjoy a nice day at the versailles but how much cooler would it be with a royal family still alive and living there? :)

        and if english people are so tired of paying taxes for the royal family theres always the good old revolution :)

      • LAK says:

        Diana carried out 200 engagements [mixture of charity and ambassadorial and galas etc], gave her first speech and was pregnant in her FIRST year as a royal. The pace only got faster, NOT slower in the following years.

        There are enough docs culling news footage from wedding day to her death, with time stamps that show her working every single year that she was a royal.

        She was never given time to settle in. She was simply expected to get on with it. which she did.

        Alot of the excuses given for Kate’s lack of work record is taking true events, and mispresenting them in a way that somehow affects Kate when in truth none of it is relevant to her.

        The monarchy has a very high approval rating at present in the UK with a majority wanting William to be next king. During the summer when an anti monarch (pro republic) rally was organised in London they got a few hundred as opposed to the million plus cheering the Queen in the heavy rain.
        Kim started her career with a sex tape and 2 failed marriages and very public affairs – not sure most non celeb families would welcome her.

  44. sellum says:

    Kate’s only famous for laying on her back with William for 10yrs and she’s now also famous for her nude photos splashed around the world. Girl is tacky the Queen does not like her from the rumours floating.

    Kate, the Middleton’s are just British Kardashians but even lower, have you ever seen Kate’s drug touting, offering up girls-to-your-door Uncle?

    William went slumming and rebelling when he picked this trashy girl at school, she was around him for a year and he didn’t want to date her until she modeled underwear. People who have followed Kate for years know all about her trashy ways and not just the pr put out by the UK Press since the engagement.
    When the marriage fails, which it will, because she is not cut out for Royal life, in a few years, she’ll be standing on redcarpets posing with reality stars.

  45. lekan says:

    i don’t think she deserve to be snubbed.Duchess kate and kim are both hardworking.we don’t like to argue on that

  46. Chrissie Malcolm says:

    Two things …

    1. Duchess Kate will NEVER be the Queen of England. She will be the Queen of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (aka the United Kingdom). Great Britain (the United Kingdom) is made up Scotland, England, Northern Ireland and Wales. Here endeth the lesson … sorry to be so pedantic, but it really gets on my tits when everyone in the world thinks England is the same as Britain/the UK. It’s only 1 of the 4 countries that makes up the UK, each of which has its own distinct culture, history and geography.

    2. Kim Kardashian is a talentless fame-whore, whose main claim to fame is having an arse the size of Texas. Why in the name of God would anyone (let alone Duchess Kate) want to meet her?

  47. angela johnson says:

    Doormat booty call is harsh but excellent, and it sums up Kate, since 2002 to date she has not demonstrated a work ethic. Kim and the sisters know they are reality TV inventions and need to capitalise on that. You don’t have to watch if you don’t like. Also just to clarify Kate will be Consort to the King. She is not a born royal like the Queen eg if william died she would have no role in the royal family.and she has not established a reputation for good works to keep her in the public eye. All focus would be on Harry and the York girls move up the line. I also find it interesting how americans embrace a royal who even the British people are still unsure of as she does not work.

  48. Lucrezia says:

    Can we please stop saying Kate is tax-payer funded?

    For starters, the only costs are security and travel (for working tours only). She doesn’t get a wage to cover clothes, make-up or anything like that. A large chunk of the security and travel costs would be necessary even if William was single.

    But most importantly, in the 1760′s King George handed over a massive amount of property (the Crown Estate) in exchange for parliament covering official royal costs.

    It’s hard to accurately estimate the cost of the royals, but even the highest estimates are only £185 a year (that includes all security, lost income from the duchies of Cornwall and Lancaster, palace grounds maintenance – everything). The Crown Estate earns MORE THAN THAT (over £200 million). The surplus goes into the national treasury.

    Reverse the deal, give the royal family back their property & stop covering ANY of their costs … and the tax-payer would be worse off.

    • LAK says:

      You really should read up on history of the crown estate. The only reason it exists was because the Monarch had to pay for things like governing officials and their expenses, parliamentary expenses, army, navy or some other item to the benefit of the country. And of course himself. It has never belonged to the royal family in the sense of ownership that we understnd like owning your own home. The crown estates are like The state jewels. Things like income tax only came into being as a temporary measure to provide extra funds for Navy and army. Ditto all other kinds of taxes. Unfortunately, these temporary taxes became a permanent thing that the government could draw on as well as the crown estates. The Crown estates became unmanageable for various reasons including fact that the king could never draw from it as he wished because parliament had to approve the expenditure and it’s revenues were never guaranteed. So he handed it’s management to government completely in exchange for a salary (civil list) and until 1992, no taxes to Monarch and their family. An easy life all round.

      Kate and William are tax payer funded indirectly and directly via the tax write off of their public duties, not just security, but their office expenditure, clothing, all expenses incurred in the course of those duties BUT it is done via Charles office where his duchy of cornwall profits cover all of it, BUT Charles turns around and presents it as a tax rebate for himself. Directly because they live for free in a publicly funded palace which is listed directly on the civil list as part of The Queen’s expenditure. Also, their new apartment within the palace is being renovated using public funds with a slice of charity donations from another public body thrown in.

      So yes, Kate is tax payer funded already, albight NOT as directly as The Queen.

        @LAK — I knew it. You have got to be an insider. You are way too well versed on all things Royal including the centuries old fantastically tangled financial aspects which have to be incredibly complicated to say the very least. Come on, own up. Yes or no?
