Kate Middleton Struggling To Fix Royals’ Public Image, Furious At Prince William?

Kate Middleton should be given an Oscar for her acting abilities, because recent sources have alleged that Kate Middleton has been doing her best to fix her public image and the face of her marriage, even as she remains furious at Prince William for his recent shenanigans.

As most of us know by now, Prince William hasn’t exactly been a model for good husband behavior recently, although he’s never really been good at that anyway. But his antics over the past two years, and especially the last two months, have cast his behavior in stark negative light, as he ditches family events, royal traditions, and his wife and children to go on vacation and party with models in exotic locations.

Since then, Prince William’s image has been in the gutter, even more so than usual; most of the time, it’s both Prince William and Kate Middleton coming under criticism for not working and staying at home and/or going on vacations all the time, especially on tax payer money.

But this time, Kate’s coming under fire for putting up with a husband who clearly is not spending the time or attention he needs to spend on his family and career. But to her credit, Kate is actually working really hard to fix this image, and forcing her husband to do the same.

According to reports, the royals’ recent video (with Prince Harry) discussing their Heads Together charity was the brainchild of Kate Middleton. That may or may not be true, but even the fact that she and William made the effort to appear in the video is a change from their usual stay-at-home-and-let-everyone-else-figure-it-out strategy.

The poor press office at the palace finally has a couple willing to work with them, as opposed to one that refuses to listen to anything they advise. And again, that’s being credited to Kate Middleton, even though she’s reportedly had to swallow her pride and anger to cajole Prince William into working with her.

What do you guys think? Do you agree that Kate Middleton’s and Prince William’s public images have been in desperate need of revamping, and that Kate has been the instigating force in the (very) recent wave of goodwill?
