Kate Middleton has been under scrutiny ever since she married Prince William. The Duchess is under even more scrutiny these days for her behavior – or lack thereof. Since she tries so hard to look like Britain’s perfect princess, she lacks a personality. Kate Middleton is hardly seen hugging and kissing Prince William. Why doesn’t the couple show a little PDA?
When Kate Middleton and Prince William married in 2011, she transformed herself into one-part princess and one-part Stepford Wife. She became closely guarded when it comes to how she behaves in public or what she says in interviews. It’s been years since fans have seen Kate Middleton and Prince William show any sort of PDA, let alone a kiss.
Since Kate and William are “working representatives of British Monarchy,” they must act professional during red-carpet events, public outings, work obligations, and other special occasions. They are even especially cautious of how they behave when they’re either visiting sick children or attending church with their family. Fans have never even seen Kate Middleton and Prince William kiss on one of their many family skip trips.
William shows some sort of affection for his wife by placing his hand on her back. He won’t touch her lower back. Kate Middleton has shied away from touching Prince William in any flirtatious manner. They only show chemistry when they speak among themselves. They’ve only publicly kissed three times – two of which were during their royal wedding.
Kate Middleton and Prince William attended Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthew last weekend. The couple were hardly seen together in new photos that surfaced. Kate Middleton was busy juggling the kids while Prince William was seen talking to Prince Harry. Kate Middleton is getting flack for wagging her finger and scolding Prince George.
Kate Middleton is under scrutiny after an epic fail that fans noticed at Pippa’s wedding last weekend. What happened now? Little George was photographed looking out the window of a moving vehicle on the way to Pippa Middleton’s wedding on Saturday, May 20. Prince George was seen standing on the seat without his seat belt on. Kate Middleton is getting most of the blame.
Though the vehicle was driving on a private road without any cars around, allowing a toddler to stand on a seat is still not sound behavior. Not to mention, it’s dangerous. The vehicle could crash into something else – like a tree, for instance. Kate Middleton is getting most of the flak from Twitter followers. The Duchess has already been criticized for how she reacted to her kids during Pippa’s big day.
Some argued that Prince George just wanted to have fun since he clearly was bored. He accidentally stepped on Pippa’s wedding dress and flipped over a confetti basket. Kate Middleton was seen wagging her finger and giving him a good talking to. Other fans argued that she is just a “normal” mom who will make mistakes sometimes. But, if she wants to be seen as “normal,” why doesn’t she kiss her husband every once in a while? Admitting you’re a farm girl with a green thumb isn’t going to cut it.
Kate Middleton admitted her parenting mistakes when she visited the Anna Freud Centre Early Year’s Parenting Unit in London. During her appearance, she said that she struggled with depression and admitted that she relates to other struggling mothers.
Prince William doesn’t mind Kate Middleton’s parenting style. He recently opened up in an interview about how they want to handle their children. He said he wants Charlotte and George to become comfortable about expressing “their emotions and feelings.” Since he’s visited many schools, he noticed how many children express their difficulty in certain subjects, and how they express them in an emotional way. He hopes that their children will do the same as they get older.
What are your thoughts, CDL readers? Do you think Kate Middleton should get flak about her parenting skills or not showing affection with Prince William?
