Five things wrong with Kate (or so they say)

Kate Middleton has had her day in the sun, okay? The engagement, the honeymoon, the Canadian tour, the fabulous dresses, the cheering crowds …

Now comes the hard part. Putting up with the critics.

Yes, what goes up must come down, and in the sunny glow of so many sugar-y reviews for the Duchess of Cambridge, a few black clouds hover.

So, barely two months into her entry into the royal household, we present five things wrong with Kate (according to some):

Kate skinny 1. Not fat enough.

Has anyone had their weight discussed more or in a more public way? Yes, she dropped weight before the wedding and, yes, she could use a few pounds. There is suspicion that she is a poster girl for anorexics. Meanwhile, she continues to wake up, attend functions, smile a lot, and generally look healthy. She went from Waity Katey to Unweighty Katey. Just watch … the minute she shows a love handle, Sarah Ferguson will be trying to sign her up to Weight Watchers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Too much eye makeup.

Kate eyes British designer Vivienne Westwood says Kate has “a problem” with eye makeup. “The sharp line around her eyes make her look hard. Either she should be smudgy or wear none,” says the 70-year-old Westwood, who seems to enjoy stabbing little daggers into the royal psyche every now and then. The fact that Kate does her own makeup makes her vulnerable to such a charge, and there are some who agree with Westwood. Says celebrity make-up artist Rachel Wood: “She is one of the lucky kind of girls that can slip through on the not-so-perfect make-up front, but I do feel her eyeliner is a little dated and harsh for her beautiful eyes.” Best keep this little fashion faux pas in the family … maybe hire little sister Pippa as a makeup consultant.

3. She wears pantyhose.

Kate and legs Believe it or not, there are some people who think the Duchess is doing a disservice to young people by wearing pantyhose. Young legs are meant to be bare apparently, not forced into sheer hose that constricts the arteries and looks unnatural. But who could argue with the silky smooth look she presented on her tour of North America? Pantyhose can be uncomfortable and annoyingly fragile, but Kate has made it okay for young people to give up on tanning spray and submit to the smooth look.

 

 

 

 

4. She recycles clothes.

Kate recycle At first, people thought Kate’s outfit renewal program was great, setting a new tone for a new budget-conscious generation of royals. Then came Kelly Osbourne talking to Jay Leno: “In England they're like, 'Look how thrifty she's being, showing the British public that the Royals are in a recession as well.' I'm sorry, but if I had that job, I would only wear it once. If I am going to be the future bloody Queen of England I'm going to wear that dress once because I'm giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy. At least I can get a new dress every day!"

Osbourne was set upon quite mercilessly for her comments, but one wonders how many people agree with her. There is a mini-nation of Kate watchers and wannabes who count on her for their fashion advice and like to see new gear all the time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

5. She’s never had a ‘real’ job.

Kate pancake True enough. Though she has dabbled in party planning and fashion, Kate’s career trajectory for a number of years been with William And Company. For some, it’s the dream job, but while no one would argue the fringe benefits, it takes a special talent to shake that many hands, smile that much, or to just flip a the pancake in front of millions and not a make fool of yourself. Whatever her resume said before, there’s no doubt she has a very real job now.

Thank goodness for some light reading once in awhile, real news can be very depressing most days.

1. we are all trying to slim down and that is not to say too much but like Dianna she isright for what she wises to be not some weight watchers
2. She has delightful eyes and colouring get over it
3. panty hose, During 1940 - 1945 Britians would kill for nylons stockings leave it alone
4.Kelly Osbourne needs to stop the thinging like I worn that to so and so's party I can't wear it again. If clothes were made of paper then throw them away but alot of people go into making a look for someone and they too would say wear it for as long and often as you like.
5. If you think being part of the royals is not a job then start reading. you will fined that it is not a easy as you think

Kelly Osbourne is giving advice? Dear gawd...

OMG How petty people are! Leave her alone!
These are not faults, it is gossip and hurtful crap!
I wish I was as thin and beautiful as her.
I never noticed her eye makeup but I did notice her kind smile.
I wear panty hose!
Kelly Osborne is WHO?
She sure works harder and longer hours then me and look at the stuff she has to put up with like this article.

I don't know how anyone can wear shoes, any kind of shoes, without socks or pantyhose. If I did, within five minutes my feet would be bleeding to beat the band. You know, Fergie was the Duchess of Pork, her daughters are two of the worst dressers in English history, and many people make fun of the Queen for carrying a purse around in her own home. Can we at least leave the young Duchess of Cambridge alone? She's slender, she's gorgeous, she has a college degree (and a good one at that), and she married the most eligible man in the world. She's got to be doing something right!

These criticisms are just the products of feeble minds.
On all counts, Kate has been an outstanding success so far,
She is attractive, beautifully groomed and tastefully so. She appears to have a delightful personality, and William is very fortunate in his choice.

Diana is probably looking on, and recognizing the same cast list of mindless critics.
