Did Queen Elizabeth demand that Kate Middleton get a job? Is the guest-editing job announcement a cover-up for a permanent position? Kensington Palace announced via Twitter that the Duchess of Cambridge would be guest-editing The Huffington Post UK for a day in mid-February. Duchess Kate will use the position to highlight the mental health issues of young children and their families.
The press release from Kensington Palace went on to state, “The Duchess will be commissioning contributions form a number of leading figures in the mental health sector.” Apparently Princess Kate is also going to ask a bunch of kids, parents and teachers for their input as well.
Kate Middleton will throw open the doors of the Cambridge’s 20-room apartment at KP to a group from the Huffington Post UK! The future Queen will use this opportunity to share the inspiring work of others in the mental health field. Is this a huge build-up to yet another flop for the Duchess of Cambridge?
There have been reports of other money-making schemes dreamed up by Princess Kate. The organic baby food line? A clothing line? Wasn’t the Duchess supposed to go into business with Pippa Middleton? Are the Royal bank accounts emptying at such an alarming rate the Duchess of Cambridge needs a paying job?
The Duchess of Cambridge isn’t writing her own column just yet. Everyone may eventually rally ‘round and praise the Duchess of Cambridge’s editing skills to the high heavens. And then, surprise! Duchess Kate will be a guest editor for one publication or another every single month. Then, instead of just editing, perhaps Duchess Kate can write a monthly or weekly column.
Carole Middleton can give Duchess Kate some tips on how to write newspaper and magazine articles. The Middleton matriarch took on writing party-planning columns for two publications last year. Carole Middleton wrote for both Little London and Baby London last year. Carole’s job is to update readers with THE most exciting trends in the world of children’s entertainment!
Kate Middleton wouldn’t be the first Royal wife to put pen to paper for cash. Sarah Ferguson published a number of Budgie the Little Helicopter books while married to Prince Andrew. Will the Duchess of Cambridge parlay this guest-editing for a day gig into a professional writing career? Who knows, anything is possible when it comes to the Royal Family!
