Will Duchess Kate get an honor from the Queen for Kate’s wedding anniversary?

Her Majesty The Queen, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall and HRH The Duchess of Cambridge attends the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph on Sunday 10 November 2019

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s ten-year wedding anniversary is coming up in April. I’m not looking forward to the coverage, which I imagine will be cloying, embiggening and asinine. I’m already preparing to hear, ad nauseum, about Will and Kate’s “love match” and their “fairytale romance,” and how keen they are to really get going now that they’ve been married ten years. But will the Queen do something special for them for their tenth anniversary? Perhaps. In 2019, for their eighth anniversary, the Queen gave Kate the Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order. Kate got it a lot later than other married-in women, and she got it right after the Rose Hanbury kerfuffle. At the time, I read the Queen’s honoring Kate for being a good royal wife and not causing a big headache for the Firm because of William’s wandering sceptre. So, will Kate get another honor for the tenth anniversary?

It’s almost 10 years since they walked down the aisle at Westminster Abbey, and the Queen is reportedly planning a new honour for Kate Middleton to mark a decade of marriage to the future King. On the couple’s eighth anniversary in 2019, the Queen bestowed her highest seal of approval, making the Duchess of Cambridge, 39, a Dame Grand Cross of the Royal Victorian Order. Awards under the Royal Victorian Order are made personally by the Queen for services to the sovereign, and the Queen is said to be considering another prestigious honour for April, in recognition of Kate’s work as a member of the monarchy.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! magazine: ‘It’s highly likely she’ll be planning a special secret something to honour Kate’s 10 years in the royal family – something she can do to mark it. Kate and the Queen have a fantastic relationship. Kate strikes that balance between bowing to her as head of the royal family in public but being able to check in with her as the great-grandmother to her children.’

He added that, despite the ongoing pandemic, the Queen and Kate have remained close with the Duchess having a direct line to speak to Her Majesty. Kate checks in on her and gives her updates on her and Prince William’s children – George, seven, Charlotte, five, and Louis, two. Duncan also said that it is believed Kate taught the Queen how to use video calls, so that she could see her great-grandchildren while they were unable to visit each other.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, I don’t think Kate helps the Queen with anything, especially not Zoom calls. I doubt Kate even calls the Queen and offers updates about the Cambridge children. And I doubt the Queen would even want Kate to do that?? Kate and the Queen have never seemed particularly close, but I suspect that’s mostly because William keeps Kate away from his family at that kind of level. He’d rather be a Middleton and spend time with Kate’s family. Anyway, sure, I could see the Queen giving Kate another “I’m so glad you’re okay with your husband banging other broads” honor. Or maybe the Queen will make Kate wait another eight years. Who knows.

    For keeping up with that pompous shite and zooming yourself in an early grave, you can have a nice medal. Attagirl!

  2. Becks1 says:

    Oh Lordy Will these people STOP. They sound ridiculous at this point. No Kate did not teach the queen how to make video calls during the pandemic. No Kate and the queen are not BFFs. My guess is the queen appreciates Kate for keeping her head down but is probably still wondering what exactly it is she does all day. It’s clear the queen DOES try to encourage Kate to work – hence her appearance at Kate’s garden, her statement about the Hold Still competition – to me these all come off as “well done Kate! See you can do it! Just another 400 engagements a year and you’ll be up there with Anne.”

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      This story has the Mids written all over it – embiggening Kate while sidelining William. William has always kept Kate and her family away from his own, even after they got married.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Perhaps Kate and Carole see the writing on the wall and know William has future plans that don’t involve Kate. We always get these obvious pro-Middleton pieces when it appears William has been straying.

    • equality says:

      There was an article back in July that I had to look up again because I just faintly recalled it but it says there is footage of Anne teaching the Queen to video chat. These stories of Will and Kate are getting old. Since they aren’t seen doing much in public, they have to claim they do more in private?

    • February-Pisces says:

      I think the only thing the queen likes about Kate is that she’s not Diana. She’s probably relieved by that, and it’s probably the only reason kate is still there, cos they are more afraid of William trading up and marrying a Diana/Meghan.

      • Seraphina says:

        Feb-Pisc, I agree with everything except Wills marrying a Diana/Meghan type. He would never do that, he likes a door mat that bends to his will not a woman with a mind and will of her own.

      • JT says:

        Funny thing is, Will totally needs a Meghan.

      • February-Pisces says:

        @seraphina he never would, but that won’t stop the firm from fearing that if he did remarry, she would become too popular.

      • Susan says:

        Yeah, Will and Meghan together would be nuclear war. There are definitely men out there (Will being one of them) that need a subservient, quiet retro wife that let them have control. Meghan is NOT a stepford wife and I mean that as the highest compliment possible.

      • JT says:

        Will couldn’t get a Meg that’s the problem. The woman who were interesting, dynamic, titled did not want William enough to marry him but that is what he needed/needs for his role. Someone who is charming, can run the house, educated, hard working, stylish, beautiful (basically Meg or even a Rose Hanbury type) to move the monarchy’s image into modern times. If that type of woman wanted Will he would have her but he is a dullard himself so he got Kate.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        In the scenario of a divorce and remarry, I don’t think the RF needs to worry about William marrying a woman like Diana/Meghan because it’s obvious that he hates other people outshining him. If anything, he’d probably do best with a Sophie/Camilla type: someone who does the work but doesn’t receive much hype or attention.

      • JT says:

        I really do believe that Harry marrying Meghan put William’s own marriage into perspective for him. When he proposed to Kate I think he wanted a woman who would allow him to live how he wanted, but as time passed he thought differently. Maybe a new wife wouldn’t have to be a firecracker like Meg/Diana, but I don’t think a Sophie/Camilla will do anymore. Not for William or the public for that matter. I mean just imagine what type of QC Diana would have been if Charles and the RF would supported her. The entire monarchy would be different.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I think when Diana married in they all thought she was a subservient mouse who they could push around. They had no idea the woman she would become and are scared of making the same mistake again. Willie probably desires a woman like Meghan but could never actually get one, hence why he’s such a dickhead to her, men always hate attractive women who don’t want them. William has no respect for Kate because she’s so subservient to him, he knows he can’t treat her like crap, but he still needs to be that way too.

  3. Kalana says:

    Yeah, Kate and the Queen are so close, the Queen snubbed Kate and William at Windsor.

    A direct line to the Queen to tell her about George, Charlotte and Louis. Uh huh.

    IDK. Thomas Markle is helping the DM against his own daughter. The Windsor are helping the DM’s case by leaking to the DM against H&M. It’s all too dysfunctional. This family is grim. Giving each other madeup awards doesn’t fix that

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      That “direct line” bit stood out to me, too. So, Kate has a “direct line”, but Harry, her own “blood” grandson, had to go through layers of courtiers and grey men, and even THEN couldn’t talk directly to his own grandmother???

      Yeah, pull the other one.

    • STRIPE says:

      I’d be willing to believe they are “close” in that they are as close as anyone can be to QE, which is not at all close by normal standards.

  4. DeltaJuliet says:

    I’ll have been married 20 years this spring. I’ve been thru a lot! Where’s my damn medal?!

  5. SarahCS says:

    I have no direct knowledge of their relationship but I feel I can say with a high level of confidence that they do NOT have a close relationship. Petty Betty appreciates that Kate produced an heir and a couple of spares and kept her head down while Wandering Willy carried on doing what he’s done the whole time he’s known her.

    So sure, give her a medal! These people are ridiculous.

    • Sinéad says:

      Are they trying to force the Q to give Kate another medal? Coz if they keep going on about it like this it’s going to be an even bigger story when none materializes!

      • Mignionette says:

        Yes, bc that would be another stone in Meghan’s garden.

        “Look at Kate being rewarded for staying and doing the hard graft.”

        We’re likely to be in lock down for another 4 months, which means another missed Trooping and other celebrations so they need a stick to beat Meghan with this side of Easter for clicks and that post lock down holiday jaunt.

    • Esmeralda says:

      Larcombe is not really a reliable source, I think this is just royal fanfiction, so to speak.
      But if they’re already trotting out “super special SECRET honour” in January, by the time it’s April they will have told us that the Queen is giving her Windsor Castle and that Kate is helping the Queen design new jewellery.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Nooooo, no jewelry class! Keen Katie is teaching Petty Betty how to make chutney over Zoom!! They’ll both be in their respective kitchens (though I guess someone has to tell Old Brenda what a kitchen is and where it’s located, they will bang pans together and have her follow the noise). Then they’ll put on their matching Sister-Wife aprons, with the ruffles and little tiny flowers all over them, and while never putting down her black patent purse, Ol’ Brenda will learn how to whip up Kate’s Grandma’s Champion Chutney!!

      • Virginia says:

        @(TheOG) 😂😂😂👏👏thank you for the laugh, l had a rough day so l needed it!

  6. JT says:

    I don’t care what any of those RRs say, queen can’t be happy with Kate’s work ethic, not with the way the queen works now. She is a 95 year old woman and works more than Kate, Philip did as well. I just think that William has her backed into a corner; the entire family are backed into a corner because of W&K. The tweedlekeens have trained the RF to accept any and all work that they do. The queen rewarding Kate for disappearing for months after the Rose situation doesn’t help matters; it just reinforces the behavior. H&M aren’t there to pick up the slack or distract so now the RF are just stuck dealing with them.

  7. OriginalLala says:

    I for one, hope they make a yuuuuuge deal about their 10th wedding anniversary – full of embiggening articles about how in love they are, because you know that it’s A) not true at all, and B) will be followed at some point by a renewed media interest in William’s wandering specter.

    • Kalana says:

      I hope they repeat the whole street party thing and this time tell people to Clean for the Keens!

  8. FancyPants says:

    Meh, what else do they have to do now besides bestow meaningless honors on each other? Happy anniversary Kate, I guess.

  9. Chaine says:

    I, too, walked an elderly relative through the basics of Zoom technology—can I have a medal?

    • Ponytail says:

      Having listened to my other half try to explain to his dad how to set up his TV…you probably deserve one!

  10. Lucy says:

    When I first read the piece it felt like something from Kate’s side, trying to install the idea that an honor is due for her 10th aniversary with the firm.

    • Sinéad says:

      Yep. This. That’s exactly what it is…

    • Harper says:

      To me, it reads as Kate did the Royals a favor. Kate handled William successfully for ten years so where’s her payment?

      • Over it says:

        Exactly, lying still and pretending he is good in bed definately deserves an honor

      • Tessa says:

        I think he runs the show. I am not sure she is all that successful dealing with him. What bothered me was how she cooperated with his obvious PR to put down his brother.

      • Nic919 says:

        Kate isn’t handling anything. She’s visibly shrinking and when she does videos with him, even ten years in she still doesn’t seem comfortable. (Watch the one today for the burns event). She never exudes confidence around him which is quite frankly disturbing in such a long term relationship. In a healthy one she would certainly feel more comfortable doing things with him than virtual strangers and currently the opposite is true.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Yep it sounds like Kate is fishing for medal. Kate’s really taking the p*ss pushing her luck like that. She should be happy that she hasn’t been kicked out yet. Kate doesn’t deserve and award for anything. She got her title, a house in the country, and all those ugly grandma dresses, without lifting a damn finger. A 94 year old does 4 times the mount of work she does. I feel like it’s the firm doing her a favour by letting her just be there, not the other way round.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Yeah, this definitely reads like a typical Kate/Carole-approved piece. Easy to tell by 1) how little William features in these puff pieces and 2) the focus on Kate as being essential to the RF.

  11. Ginger says:

    I don’t buy that Kate has a direct line to the Queen and helped her with video calls and updated her on the Cambridge kids. Harry is a blood royal and was unable to get a meeting with her. And the Queen doesn’t even like Kate (from what I have heard) she just puts up with her. The Queen looks like she is in pain whenever she is around her. And so does William.

    • Maliksmama says:

      Truth. Kate can pick up a phone and dial straight to Elizabeth but Harry has go thru a gauntlet just to schedule an appointment?

      The RR/BM know their readers only read the headlines and not the articles. Because there’s no way they’d be able to keep contradicting themselves and not get called out.

    • Couch potato says:

      It’s clearly BS. And why is it Kate, and not the “oh so hands-on” father who’s calling his grandma with news about his kids? Another indication he don’t live with her and the children?

      • Carolind says:

        Don’t be silly. Of course he lives with them. In other times they did the school run turn about. It would cause a sensation here if there was a hint he was away from his family.

      • Lady D says:

        Not so sure he does, nor am I alone.

      • SarahCS says:

        Not necessarily for the reasons Couch Potato gives (in a lot of families I know the mother ends up handling the relatives on both sides when it comes to stuff about the kids) but for a lot of other reasons I seriously doubt they live together 100% of the time.

      • Nic919 says:

        Why were they so cagey about Kate and the kids and their covid status when Billy had covid? They never confirmed if she was tested and whether or not that overlapped with her visit, sans mask, to the children’s hospice. We were told he had some time in April but it was very vague when he had it and when she could have potentially been infectious. They seemed pretty certain that Kate wasn’t at risk of spreading covid to those kids even though we never got a clear time period as to when Billy had covid.

      • Becks1 says:

        William is the one who came out and made that weird comment about not seeing his kids that often (about a year ago?) and then someone also said something in one of the pro-Cambridge articles this year about how nice it was that the Camb parents are spending so much time with their kids (implying they don’t normally, which was weird because they don’t do anything else.)

        Doing the school run means nothing about their living situation. It just means he’s in London the same time the kids are in London.

        There have been enough tidbits dropped by the royal reporters over the past 6 months or so that make it clear they are covering up for the Cambridge marriage in a big way.

    • Lizzie says:

      LOL, maybe she uses that land line that was on the console table when she was CEO’ing?

  12. Sofia says:

    She could get one I guess. I think she would have gotten the Royal Family Order this year had the Rose thing not made news.

    I do think we might get a formal portrait of them both in full regalia – Kate in a tiara with all the orders and a nice gown and William in uniform with his medals.

    • JT says:

      She just doesn’t deserve it. They need to stop rewarding her for not doing her job. Royal work is nothing like the rest of us, but in royal terms Kate is severely lacking. It is pitiful that Kate cannot outwork a 95 year old. She is not doing her duty and for people who are so concerned with duty, allowing Kate to completely sh*t the bed is a problem. They need to start a smear campaign for Kate to get her step up. We all know Kate isn’t going anywhere.

      • Tessa says:

        If William wants her out she will be out. He treated the brother he was “so close to” badly even staging PR stunts to put him down.

      • Nic919 says:

        @Tessa.. you are spot on. If William can push out his own brother this way, another blood prince who is next in line after his own kids, then he can do with Kate what he wants. Carole and Kate can send out these sad articles as much as they want, but William has all the power. Charles was able to get rid of Diana and she was a global phenomenon and more popular than him by miles. Kate has none of the public goodwill. This is not a family that respects women, much less the ones who married in.

  13. RoyalBlue says:

    The queen ignored Kate at the end of the choo choo pandemic tour, so I don’t think they even speak outside formal appearances.

    And of course she will get a new shiny trinket for sticking with the one who trims rose bushes. In that family you have to do absolutely nothing but keep quiet and you get handed out some cheap dust collector badge or piece of cloth that people fawn over.

  14. Cecilia says:

    I don’t think petty betty is particularly found of queen keen either but i think she is just happy kate is boring and therefore not controversial. For as much as we discuss them I honestly think the queen was happy with Meghans work ethic. Especially since future queen consort was lacking in that department.

    As for kate receiving an honor, I think that’s highly possible. I still gotta see if the marriage actually makes it till april. I think meghan and harry leaving has put a strain on william and kate

    • The Duchess says:

      It was Kate zooming from Sandringham that did it for me. Especially when her team has moved over plants and pictures seen in previous zooming backgrounds at Anmer & KP. Things are going to get very interesting in my opinion…

      • Nic919 says:

        There is no reason for them to zoom from Sandringham. Not only is it questionable in terms of violating current lockdown rules, as she is entering another household with different staff, but she was zooming without any issues down the road at her country manor for almost a year.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        What I don’t understand is why *she* is Zooming/”working” from Sandringham while William has been “working” from Anmer Hall as recently as last Thursday. IDK, you’d think that it would be the other way around with Will being the actual royal after all. The whole thing is just bizarre.

      • Becks1 says:

        @TheDuchess that was what took it over the top for me too. Kate wasn’t zooming while Charlotte had a horseback riding lesson at Sandringham or something. They purposely moved the photos and some of the plants to make it look like a new room at Anmer or something, but then said that it was Sandringham. It was weird and there had to be a reason for it .

    • Nic919 says:

      The many comments in media articles saying that William and Kate have a stronger marriage since his brother and sister in law left were obvious signs something is going on. Why would their marriage be affected in any way as to where Harry and Meghan decide to live? It should be irrelevant.

  15. Shoo fly says:

    I’m not sure there’s much left in the way of orders left to give. The one Kate’s got is the “highest” that the Queen can give out personally. I just looked at Sophie’s orders and i suppose she could give her that St John’s one or whatever because of all the zooming with nurses. I’m sure they’ll find something that will just draw more attention to Kate’s lack of work.

  16. Amy Bee says:

    I think both William and Kate will get a special honour from the Queen for staying the course and for finally complying with the demands of the media. If Kate is the one teaching the Queen how to Zoom then she needs to get rid of her comms staff.

    The media has already started their ten year retrospective of William and Kate’s marriage but expect that in coming months, especially with Harry and Meghan not being around, it will be all we hear about.

    • JT says:

      I don’t think they are complying with the media’s demands. One of the main problems concerning the BM is that W&K don’t provide enough content. They aren’t seen as much and as the only “young” royals around they should be working more. And do people really believe that the queen is happy with Kate? I mean truly. Do people think the queen is proud of Kate? For what? Producing an heir and spare is a given so there should be no points for that, but what has Kate done for the monarchy?

      • Amy Bee says:

        Of course they are. Prior to Meghan coming on the scene, they had the same stance as Harry regarding the media. They were not forthcoming with pictures of the children and information about their home life. That has changed, granted they had to do more disclosure than they may have wanted because they lost Harry and Meghan but they are a willing participation in the media game now. The train tour was not for the people of the UK, it was to give the media pictures in lieu of no Christmas pics.

      • JT says:

        I still think they are largely MIA. There were many weeks last year where the Cambridge’s were there. They can’t deliver on gossip regarding H&M. So what is there purpose to the BM at this point? And when they do give the media something, nobody cares. Those RR aren’t making money off of them.

  17. Harper says:

    Eh, it’s just ten years out of a supposed lifetime, and I agree that Kate got that one medal early for not bolting when the Rose Hanbury news humiliated her. I am sure that the Queen appreciates the fact that Kate is hungry enough for all the royal perks to keep quiet about what it’s really like to live with Wills. And the Queen does not have a connection with Kate; it is Sophie that she lights up with and she doesn’t care who knows it.

  18. carmen says:

    I have to laugh at the wording in the article – essentially, it’s an honour to have stuck with him and his dysfunctional family for 10 years! When I saw the headline I was expecting to read about an award she was getting for all of her hard work (lol).

  19. anotherlily says:

    Change the name from Kate to Sophie and it would be accurate.

  20. Pétulia says:

    I don’t think she will receive any type of honours. It’s just bad optics. We are in a pandemic. The nurses are struggling and you award a member of the royal family for staying married 10 years ? That’s doesn’t look good

    • Nic919 says:

      Getting an award for staying married looks really dumb, especially right now. Until Kate, the other married in women got ribbons for having shown the ability to do royal engagements in significant numbers. The Royal Victorian order should never have been given when it had because it was obviously done to cover for the Rose affair. Kate had done nothing service wise to merit it. And she disappeared for about six weeks until it was announced, with no explanation for being gone that long. Even the household order was given in secret because Meghan was now in the family and making Kate look even worse by simply doing charity work, so the white princess had to be rewarded first. They even lied about when it was given to suggest it was given earlier than it was.

      They shot their load with all available high level ribbons to give Kate and even the ones she was given were being awarded more for being a faithful broodmare than contributing to society. Because Kate can’t even pretend to be interested in charitable service and duty, she’s really exposing the royal family for the shallow creatures that they are.

  21. Nic919 says:

    They need to stop with the lies that the Queen gives a shit about Kate. It’s obvious she tolerates her and that’s mostly because she produced heirs. If anyone is close to the queen it’s Sophie and that’s only because she made an effort to be interested in the things the Queen likes. The queen is not the one who is going to make efforts to get to know Kate, but the other way around and Kate has not bothered

    Also, you can’t teach an elderly woman who barely uses computers to use zoom if you aren’t in the same location. Kate has not been in the same physical spot as the queen since the end of the covid choo choo tour and we all saw the queen openly ignore her there. The Queen’s staff is setting up the zoom calls. Not Kate from miles away. This aggrandizement of Kate is so ridiculous.

  22. Lizzie Bathory says:

    Seems like a test balloon from the Middletons. BUT KP/the Windsors need to be really careful. By W&K’s 10th anniversary, Brexit pain will have really set in, more of Andrew’s mess will be public & Eugenie’s baby will be old news. Plus, 1 year out from Sussexit, I think Betty & her nasty courtiers will have stripped Harry of his honorary military titles (as they clearly learned nothing from the Cenotaph wreath debacle).

    So how will it look to give Kate a fake honor or sparkly bauble when she & her philandering husband have done little but breed, “garden” & decorate their palace & country pile for the better part of a decade? I’m bookmarking this….

    • Lady D says:

      The appalling petty Betty stripped Harry of his honorary military titles before he was evicted from Britain. She cannot touch the medals he earned while in the military.

      • Lizzie Bathory says:

        Yes, thanks for the correction. I meant permanently removing the honorary ones, since (ostensibly) reinstating them was still on the table for the “1 year review.” Since the Sussexes aren’t coming back, I think the plan is to report the Queen’s refusal to reinstate the honorary titles in a few months as another “punishment” to bash Harry & Meghan (“can’t have it both ways,” etc). The Express already teased this a week or so ago.

      • Lady D says:

        Okay, sorry Lizzie. I didn’t realize the stripping of the awards was conditional. Think it gives the queen a little jolt of pleasure to strip him of those, whether then or in the future? She seems the type to enjoy twisting the knife.

  23. February-Pisces says:

    I wonder if kate will buy herself a present again and pass it off as a gift from the queen, like that time when she bought herself a ring as told the press William bought it as an anniversary present. She was left red face when they fact checked it and the store said Kate went in and paid for it herself. Lol.

    Anyway the queen doesn’t like Kate, I actually think she despises her and her family. She literally snubbed William and Kate in that Christmas video and went straight to Sophie. So Betty is very much aware of the sh*t the Keens have done to her precious monarchy. But Betty being Betty will probably still honour Kate just to keep up appearances that all is well, because the Keens can literally do whatever they want without repercussions.

  24. Kate says:

    Ohhhh well at de Windsor Christmas walk, the Queen completely ignored Kate, even Camilla had a shocked ,cant believe Lizzie did that, in public too!!!! Sadly you can’t find that clip in full now !!! Funny that

  25. Merricat says:

    I imagine CM has a list of honors that she is checking off: trains, medals, tiaras. Kate is so thirsty for proof of royal accreditation.

  26. Lizzie says:

    Sickness, death, food insecurity. Seems like a good time to give the laziest royal an award. If anyone in the rf deserves to lose titles and patronages it should be duchess dolittle.

  27. The Duchess says:

    What I’m failing to understand is what more do the Middleton’s want for Kate? She already received an award from the Queen in 2019 and that was the RVO to help keep her quiet about Rosebush leaking. It seems to me they just don’t know what to do with Kate anymore.

  28. Likeyoucare says:

    The queen will give a medal for paricipation to Kate. Just like at the kindergarten, all the kids will get medal during sports day for participating.
    Congrats kate you deserve it, a meaningless honor just like yourself.

  29. Over it says:

    I think Kate deserves an honor. No one wears the badge of stupid like she does . Forgiving that balding douchebag time and time again just to have shinny objects like she is a magpie and designer wardrobe like a clotheswhore,
    Palaces like she is being bought forward from the Victorian era. For all that the petty queen should give the vapid princess an honor. Lord knows she has done absolutely nothing of substance or importance to earn it .

  30. Izzy says:

    Aside from the fact that I seriously doubt Katie Keen taught Queen Petty about Zoom, I also don’t think they check in regularly. But what amazes me more is the absolute tone-deafness of their PR people, STILL. Harry couldn’t get a meeting with his granny to talk about the safety of his wife and child, but Keenie can call her up to chat about chutney. How do they even think this is a good look?

      It’s intentional. Harry can’t get an appointment with his grandmother because he’s been a bad bad boy but look at perfect, never put a foot wrong Kate, she can call the queen directly because the queen is pleased with her behavior, unlike harry and his wife. The Sussexes are irrelevant (but they can’t stop talking about them) and the Cambridges are the bright shiny future future people everyone should and does love.

    Kate should get the “Freedom Medal of Valor” award, like Tom Cruise — then she can wear her navy uniform costumes and she’ll fit right in with the other SeaOrg cosplayers.

    Sure, go ahead. What’s it worth anyway. She pats her own back all the time, as does William.

    So, once again, noted early years scholar Kate Middleton gets rewarded for absolute nothing. What a great lesson for her kids: put up with sh!t long enough, toss out a few words about being “keen” about whatever, and you too may get a shiny bauble. No need to actually have a personality, education or job.

    The rest of celebrities have had to go without extra help, they’re caught running to the corner store, with jogging suit messy hair no makeup, no botox forever ruining their glam image that we’re used to seeing, this family however is sitting pretty while they’re hired team go out doing everything for them, their perfect image remains intact. Maybe they should take a break thanking nurses and thank their staff instead.

    She’ll definitely be expecting a reward!! The 10yrs mark is usually a determinate for couples and if they’ll stay together forever. We always see many celebrities separating around this time so we’ll see..

  36. Merricat says:

    Ten years is great, but it doesn’t mean the couple will be “together forever.” Change is life, and by refusing to grow and change, Kate—and the monarchy—doom themselves.
