Kate Middleton landed the cover of British Vogue and this seems a bit less than royal. It’s one thing for her to sit for an official portrait, but to cover a fashion magazine seems a tad common, doesn’t it? Then there’s the question of the example she’s setting for young women.
Kate Middleton is an uber-thin stay at home mom and a lackluster royal when it comes to getting out and doing real work. For a woman whose parents own a thriving business and has a college degree under her belt (unlike Princess Diana who was a finishing school dropout), she’s done remarkably little.
Waity Kaitie has now transformed herself into Lazie Katie and this Vogue cover is just another sign that she wants all the benefits of being royal without doing any of the work. If you look back at photos of Kate from college, you’ll see evidence of nose jobs and rampant starvation.
She’s crafted herself into a stick thin arm ornament for Prince William who has done nothing for the realm except produce an heir and a spare – and spend taxpayers’ money. Kate Middleton may have jewels, gowns, and castles, but she’s clearly not a woman of substance.
At least the usual cover girls of British Vogue are career women who are working models pursuing a legitimate and competitive career. Kate Middleton has done nothing with her advantages and is a shockingly bad example for young women in the UK and around the world.
It’s 2016. Who lists “princess” as their job? Even five year olds don’t want to grow up and be a princess anymore – they want to be social media tycoons or presidents of industry. It’s shocking that a princess is all Kate Middleton seems to want to be – and not even a working one.
Consider instead Princess Diana, who was clearly groomed to be Prince Charles’ bride from a relatively young age, had very little in the way of higher education, and was intended to be a royal doormat who popped out kids and stayed out of Charles’ way.
Yet Diana made herself into a tour de force for social activism and change – and was a fashion plate at the same time. Kate Middleton, however, seems to only be doing the latter… Can you imagine Lazy Katie wandering through a field of land mines? No way.
And now she’s on the cover of British Vogue showing off her anorexic frame that she trimmed herself down to when she finally got Princess Diana’s ring on her finger. Kate Middleton’s main profession seems to be frittering away money on a lavish lifestyle.
Plus, there’s the plastic surgery – the two nose jobs and breast lift that were no doubt paid for by the hard working citizens of the UK. Kate does trot out for the occasional obligatory road trip with Prince William, like the recent trip to India where she showed off her bloomers in one of her many wardrobe malfunctions and fidgeted at Gandhi’s assassination site.
Other than that, you don’t see the woman. Try and chalk it up to her being a “full time” mom but she’s got nannies, right? And servants? And personal shoppers? Glorifying Kate Middleton with a Vogue cover, allegedly for her interest in photography, is a stunning lapse.
But admittedly she’s no candidate to make the cover of “Working Mother” or TIME or any other publication that might imply she participates in industry or a career of any sort. Vogue means “the prevailing style at a particular time.”
In a time when women stand shoulder to shoulder with men running the world, Kate Middleton is far less than what’s in Vogue yet there she is on the cover. What’s worse is she cost a working woman a paycheck by taking the cover for herself – one more way Kate is hurting the women of the world.
