Kate Middleton Lacks X-Factor: Paul Burrell’s Catty Comments

Kate Middleton Lacks X-Factor: Paul Burrell's Catty Comments

According to Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell, Kate Middleton lacks the same x-factor that Prince William’s late mother once had. In fact, Paul made some rather catty comments about the Duchess of Cambridge during an on-air interview with an Australian television show this past week.

Kate Middleton has long been compared to Princess Diana. Just recently a German media outlet claimed that the Duchess is the next princess of hearts because she has the same charisma and warmth that Diana once had. But apparently, not everyone feels this same way. In an interview with Australia’s Nine News, Diana’s former right-hand man said, “I met Mother Teresa — she had it, Pope John Paul II had it, the Queen has it, Diana certainly had it. Kate doesn’t. [She is a] lovely, lovely girl, but that extra something, which you call the X factor, is not there.”

Presenter Karl Stefanovic was rather taken aback by Paul Burrell’s comments. He blasted Paul by responding with, “That’s way too harsh, isn’t it? How dare you even say that!”’

But the humiliation didn’t stop there. Paul, who is also a British reality television star, defended himself by saying that Princess Diana always was and will be one-of-a-kind. He also admitted that he has never met Kate Middleton in person. He added, “I just see her the way you see her, through a lens.”

If that weren’t enough, many critics are also blasting Paul Burrell for continually using Princess Diana to make headlines. For many of Diana’s fans, he shouldn’t even be on television in the first place. Sure, he was one of Princes Diana’s most trusted confidants, but their relationship ended well over twenty years ago.

For many royal observers, they believe Princess Diana would never allow someone like Paul Burrell to make catty and unnecessary comments about Kate Middleton and her lack of x-factor in public. After all, she is Prince William’s wife. And she’s also the future Queen of England, whether Paul Burrell likes it or not. That’s why critics say that he needs to calm down and stop comparing Kate to Diana whenever he’s given the opportunity to do so.

Of course, Kate Middleton is yet to respond to Paul Burrell’s comments, although it’s doubtful that she will. In the meantime, don’t forget to check back with CDL for all the latest news and updates on Prince William and Kate Middleton along with the entire royal family right here.

    Middleton has an alphabetical-factor –
    double “b” – for Boring as Batsh*t. Not a fan of blabby Burrell, but his view is one that many share. Whatever “it” is that separates the few from the rest of us, Middleton doesn’t possess it and never will; Diana had it in spades.
    Wouldn’t take Karl Stefanovic’s little hissy-fit seriously – he is viewed as a morning TV clod whose main talent is that he can read an autocue without giving the impression he’s having an eye examination.

      LOL !!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s very interesting how you describe what William and his wife are like. I really cannot observe anything that you have described, hence my interest in the source of your intel, because unless you are sleeping under their bed, eat at their table, etc., etc., how else would you know all this, hmm?
    I want you to understand that I don’t disagree with what you wrote, it’s just incomplete, filtered, shallow.

    • Sigi

      So bloody true !!!!!

  • Bubbly

    I had to laugh at the response of this show how host’s, “how dare you…”. Burrell can say what he wants, as far as I am concerned. And if there was any man who would really know stuff about these people it would be him. His statement that he sees middleton only through a lens and that’s how she appears (lifeless, zero pizazz, oozing fake from every pore of her body) is epic! That’s exactly how I see her!

    I think the man is a stuffed up snob but I don’t think he deserves backlash for what he says, since it’s all obvious truth anyway.

    Agree Lara with your agreement with Bubbly! You either have “it” or you don’t. Diana had the x-factor from the time she first appeared on the scene. Clueless will always be beige, as will Witless.

  • Ladyhawke

    I agree with you Lara – with you agreeing with Bubbly! Clueless will never develop any charisma – she will always be barely beige and give the impression of missing a chromosome. Diana had the x-factor from the time she came onto the scene. Clueless and Witless are as dull as each other – perfect match.

      Isn’t it just fucking irritating to read bullshit about how some complete retards claim Waity the Ass Baboon is ANYTHING like Diana ?! Oh that gets me ——–

      • Ladyhawke

        Yes, but I try to ignore it; I fear having a stroke if I whip myself into a tizzy :)

        • Sigi

          :)

  • Sigi

    AND SO FUCKING WHAT ? AND DON’T BE SO SURE, William is as dumb as a plank and tried quite hard to find ANYONE ELSE but Waity Kate. No one else wanted or needed his shit though. Turned him down. He’s a boring twat and so is she, so it sort of worked out. But is it mad love ? No one knows.
    It was no FAULT of Diana’s that Charles was a complete jackass. In fact she rose above HIS shit.

    I disagree with your theory on why Diana was such humanitarian and hard worker You aren’t the expert on what “drove” Diana to be such a great human being, but I suspect it’s what she always was, and that’s why it came effortlessly for her. Diana didn’t need rejection from jug ears Chuck to be a fantastic person.

    Here’s your “CATHERINE”….the lazy baboon, LOL !!!!!!

      Completely agree, especially third para. – absolute bullsh*t as to what drove her. Obviously that one’s not familiar with the term “noblesse oblige” – Diana was brought up with a sense of duty and obligation and she had the drive and passion to go far and above what would have been considered adequate undertakings for a royal.
      All Clueless will be remembered for is posing, not for a portrait, but a beaver shot.

  • Sigi

    LOL !!!!!!!! Waity the SKUNK !!!!!!

    I agree ! Badly has ran away at least twice already. Left WAITY at home and went off to Spain to vacation with an ex girlfriend. Then Baldy recently went off to Switzerland and ditched WAITY again. And grabbed other women on a dance floor.

  • Ladyhawke

    Yep, absolutely agree with all that :)
