I wonder if she's so scared of speaking because she's worried her fake posh accent will slip.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYVrJLoM0Ac This was her quite some time before the engagement, sounding a lot less pretentiously posh.

This is so pathetic; she had a clear idea of the requirements to be a royal and she pushed her way in anyway. She has no problems being sociable with the rich and famous, but apparently she has issues making speeches. This woman is so pampered; if the RF had insisted she work right away and not slack, she would likely either be a divorcee or she would be working and making speeches with ease.

Nor only does Wasty probably have a phobia about losing the fake posh accent, she also doesn't have anything to talk about.
No way a lazy narrow minded schemer can give a solid speech, not even with professional help.

The solution to Kate's problem is simple: she needs to make more speeches. That is the only way to get better and overcome fears. When I was in high school we had to give presentations so often that it became no big deal, even though at the beginning of freshman year it was pretty scary to a lot of people.

Precious Waity during one of her panic attacks when speaking.
She is faking it to avoid work and to endear herself to Harry who recently admitted that he struggles with this problem sometimes.

She's a complete waste of space, imo. Wills wants to be taken seriously on the world stage, but got himself lumbered with this mess. It's no wonder he has a go at the press when they rightly take ssue with her because it reflects bad on him. I wonder by taking up the mental illness cause and the anti-bullying if he's gearing up to toss her to the side and expect to have the sympathy of the public because he'll indicate some form of mental illness from not dealing with Diana's death and expects no one to bully him.

I remember her first public speech well.  She was like a silly over excited 5 year old with much hand flapping, head nodding, fake accent and open mouthed gaping.  She really isn't up to it, no matter he much princess training she has.

Harry made it: i saw some speeches by him and he looks genuine and involved,  it seems that he can really do a perfect speech. Probably he trained a lot and this is what Kate should do, but she' s too lazy to do anything except shopping.
Kate' s not even interested to try to improve, she can' t be bothered bignono

The only thing she should do is exit stage left. She should pack it all in and get out of the marriage because she's not fit for purpose. Of course she won't because she's getting rewarded for her uselessness. What a utter and complete shame that this uncaring girl is still on par to become queen consort. Wills really should be a shamed by getting involved with the Midds and being married to this chick.  :nervous:  So much for being a prince with so much resources to keep grasping people like this lot out of his hair.

The fact that he has so little hair may be the reason he did not see the urgency in getting that creeping Charlie out of his hair.  Maybe he just hoped she would go away on her own.  However, like some friends of mine in South Carolina have discovers, English Ivy is actually not just clingy, it can be destructive.  They have aged one another in dog years.

I think this article is telling us that Kate won't be making speeches anymore.

She's a complete waste of space, imo. Wills wants to be taken seriously on the world stage, but got himself lumbered with this mess. It's no wonder he has a go at the press when they rightly take ssue with her because it reflects bad on him. I wonder by taking up the mental illness cause and the anti-bullying if he's gearing up to toss her to the side and expect to have the sympathy of the public because he'll indicate some form of mental illness from not dealing with Diana's death and expects no one to bully him.

Talk about a lesson learned for William; just because someone has an intact family and seems to have plenty of cash, doesn't mean that it should automatically mean that they're sane, stable, and has it together. He has really ruined himself and was just as superficial about his preferences as his father was accused of being. As for being taken seriously, he tossed that chance over a decade ago; if he had studied diplomacy and economics and other various topics, I am sure he would be a lot better equipped and would have ended up leaving Kate behind after a few months since he would have been too busy studying and traveling the world to become acquainted with the way the world works and world leadership. He's missed his chance by a decade and he's made such a mess, who knows if he'll ever get out of it.

She is faking it to avoid work and to endear herself to Harry who recently admitted that he struggles with this problem sometimes.

She'll never leave mainly because she married for the lifestyle, to be taken care of and socially accepted; she's such a worthless user it's disgusting. as for grasping users, it's pure schaden that he bragged about being able to find a user in a crowd and know them after a brief conversation that he ended up completely hoodwinked by people that his set could see through like glass.

I think Kate thought it looked easy and anyone could do it.  Until she got there and found out that public speaking very hard and very scary.   Public speaking is the number one phobia in the world.   Most people work hard to improve their public speaking.  They hire coaches, writers, practice in front of a video camera, practice in front of friends, etc.   Diana certainly worked hard to get over her nerves, as I'm sure many of the other royals have as well.   The fact that Kate will not hire a coach and WORK on it is just further evidence that she is unfit for this position.   The fact that she is not interested in bettering herself as a person is evidence that she has deep issues.


Title: Re: Kate's "fear" of public speaking
Post by: My2Pence on November 02, 2015, 05:28:12 pm
I don't think it is evidence that she has deep issues. I think it is evident that she is LAZY.

She thinks she's doing just fine, getting dressed up, working so much more than snowflake has ever worked. Her refusal to prepare and practice is because she thinks she's just fine as she is AND because she has no intention of putting any effort into anything beyond her appearance as a WAG.

If this afraid of public speaking, this should've been known before a serious discussion of marriage went through PW's "brain".  There's no excuse for not having some confidence after university.  None.  Zip.  It was required, for me anyway, in college and public speaking is a no big deal for any of my fellow grads or myself.  She's certainly had to do some of that or should have had elementary training in it by now.  There is no reason for this continual display of uselessness.  Not at her age.

I know that American universities do a lot of public speaking but I am not sure about British ones.

I know that I never did any public speaking and I have three degrees - one Bachelor's and two Masters degrees - and have never had to speak in public. Even as a teacher I have never had to address even a school assembly and so am incapable of addressing a group any larger than about 3 - 4 adults or about 25 - 30 school students.

What I am saying is maybe at St Andrews in her course Kate didn't actually have to do any public speaking in order to get her degree. Even if she did maybe she was able to do it satisfactorily in front of her peers and lecturers as they were known to her but speaking to a crowd of strangers is a different scenario.

She should do something about it of course, and won't it seems.

Well HM's father certainly did something about his complete and very real fear of public speaking and he had a pronounced stutter. We've all seen The King's Speech. He got the help to overcome this. The Potato Head is just flat out lazy, arrogant and hardheaded. She doesn't want to get the help and she's not going to do it. Period. Foolish Woman.


Title: Re: Kate's "fear" of public speaking
Post by: YooperModerator on November 02, 2015, 08:47:42 pm
^So true.  And I understand about the British 'reserve' and all of that but speech-giving must be Royalty 101 or maybe not.  No clue.  Seems weird to me.  

^^That's interesting.  You'd think, if she was so 'keen' on snagging William that she'd have taken some initiative to prepare herself for at least some of the duties coming down the pike besides when and when not to wear underwear.

You're right about the US public speaking. We start in high school with debate, most everybody is involved in giving reports and public speaking and confidence seems to be built in from the early grades - very few are shy and it's overcome with time and patience.  I honestly don't know of many Americans who have a problem with speaking to any crowd whatsoever and am glad for it.  There hasn't been one job where I've worked where at some point you didn't have to get up and give a presentation.  That goes for the whole stratus.  Odd.

However, Kate's "career goal" was to be William's wife.  That's pretty obvious and it's also pretty obvious that she never really looked past the gloss and glitz.  I also notice, in her speeches (thank you very much, Fly, for that list, which is pretty skimpy for four years) that she never connects with her audience.  Far too self-aware and the hair-messing is appallingly bad form.  She also can't go longer than a sentence without looking at her notes which should be on 5 x 7 cards, not on a huge piece of paper that is stapled and is rattled around.  How rude!  We'd be insulted here in the States with that lack of preparation.  She also never looks out and above the crowd which shows a serious lack of either confidence or awareness of her mission.  You speak to the farthest person away from you.  Lesson One.

Here's an oldie but a goodie that we all should know.  I think this was Diana's first public speech but could be wrong.  Even at this young age and as shy and uncertain as she was, she already had an instinct and deportment that Kate is lacking.  She has very small pieces of papers for her notes and she adds a personal touch that I've yet to see from Kate.  Also, Diana instinctively knew to look out and above the group assembled.  That's a knack you are either trained for or are born with.  Diana had charm and even as klunky and too fast a speaker as she was here, her earnestness and connection with the audience came through anyway.  So, she had only one way to go and that was up.

I think this is the part where she was gushing at mentioning Wills and people started to clap. She's more of a stalking fangirl instead of a wife and member of the royal family. She knows that nothing will happen to her if she remains a lazy cow. She really could give to ff's about "work" because the royal family would rather pretend that all's well on the home -front and allow her to continue her WAG existence, IMO. It's kind of frightening to know that someone like this holds a powerful position and yet so devoid of depth, empathy or common sense. At the same time, it's best if she's not seen trying to give soda he's because it just solidifies that she's a complete joke and people will question why she's there; what Wills saw in her to consider her royal wife material and a representative of Britain.

Waity IMO shows her upbringing: she NEVER had to solve anything by herself, it was all taken care of by the Viper.
She thinks her only goal was to reel Wimpo in, that in itself is a life goal and she needs to gets applauded for it, even by parents who's children are fighting for their lives.
Waity feels her job is done.
She wants to gets paid, not be heard.

I thought it was very strange that she wore a cross to this event. The Middletons have never shown themselves to be a religious family. They only go to Christmas for the pap stroll since the marriage. Easter is always spent skiing. She wasn't confirmed until just before the wedding because of her "personal journey" to faith.  Uh huh.

At the same time she wore that cross, there was a legal battle raging as to whether or not people could wear religious jewelry at work (could have been specifically government jobs).  An odd and unaware choice to show up wearing a cross during that time, especially since she's never shown before or since to be particularly religious.

I think if Kate had been forced to get a job after university, she would have been able to make a speech without making a total fool of herself. And let's face it...it is not like she has to write the speeches herself.

And I am quite surprised that this is not part of the curriculum in the UK. Like in the US, Dutch children will have to give presentations in class from a young age (in the 3rd of 4th grade of elementary school) and that continues all throughout highschool. And later at universities as well. Sometimes with a few fellow-students, sometimes alone. And I would think that with a study like art-history is very easy to incorporate student-presentations into the curriculum.


Title: Re: Kate's "fear" of public speaking
Post by: YooperModerator on November 03, 2015, 02:14:28 pm
Public speaking is a lot like learning a language.  The earlier you start, the better your chances of it becoming a part of you so even if Kate had to get up in front of any class or group in college (or university), it requires inner fortitude and confidence to overcome.  Plus, I've always had the feeling that Pippa was the outgoing one and Kate the shy, submissive member so she was groomed for other issues and nobody paid attention to what she'd actually have to do once she attained her lofty role.

Personally, I think this is a lot of baloney that she's all nervous and everything.  I think there are a lot of other emotional issues at play here.  When I first read in the very beginning about how she was bullied at school (which was questionable then and now) I thought, "Oh, here we go, the beginning of the excuses".  Naah, if she really wanted to forge ahead, she's got nerve.  This is just an excuse to not do something that requires effort.  Her calling card.  And the BRF played right into her and PW's hands over supporting Kate with all her little whims and insecurities. 

She cheated her way through school, she manipulated PW to the max, she and her mother used every trick in the book to snag William and are calculating grifters.  They have no qualms about using anything to get what they want, so public speaking would've been a cake walk if they'd thought beyond their greed.  They just happen to have missed the memo about work and that duty is a badge of honor.


Title: Re: Kate's "fear" of public speaking
Post by: Miss Hathaway on November 03, 2015, 03:20:25 pm
^ I agree that there are other emotional issues at play.   Look at Kate when she is involved in athletic activities:  sailing, hockey, volleyball, etc.   She sparkles.  She comes alive.  She actually looks pretty in athletic wear.  And she was involved and quite good at athletics during her school years.  Therefore, she is not inherently lazy because she has within her the discipline to play sports.   However, after her first year of marriage, something switched off in Kate.   I think she knows she is in over her head and doesn't know how to get out.  I think she and Pippa have been so controlled by their mother so that HER dreams could come true that Kate did everything she could to snare William but realizes that she doesn't want this after all but she is caught in the scary royal machinery on the one hand and her scary mother on the other who would disown her if she left.  No wonder she looks like a zombie.

Carol may have been a driving force, but Kate is a 30 something year old woman and she really only has herself to blame at this point. She was after PW and the luxury life from day one. She had a poster of him on her bedroom wall at Marlborough (and then later lied about it, saying it was the Levis guy).

Well when Kate got married she was 29 years old, so an adult. If she felt uncomfortable with this lifestyle she could leave, but she didn't do it.
She's an adult she's the only one to blame for her own choices in life. She clearly love her posh life, but she doesn' t stir a finger to deserve it: she' s spoilt and worth nothing to me

I'm surprised one of these motivational speakers that talk about vision boards hasn't used Waity as an example yet. She took keeping your eye on the prize to a whole new level.  :laugh:

I'm guessing the PW poster was in high school and the Levi's guy was at university. I think it would be very weird to have a poster of him in her dorm room when he lived in the same building and was in her social circle.

Well when Kate got married she was 29 years old, so an adult. If she felt uncomfortable with this lifestyle she could leave, but she didn't do it.
She's an adult she's the only one to blame for her own choices in life. She clearly love her posh life, but she doesn' t stir a finger to deserve it: she' s spoilt and worth nothing to me

Exactly; she was born in a country that is literally saturated with history connected to the BRF and she needs to quit this insane behavior where she keeps up this pretense that she's just been launched from a convent life of isolation and chastity. The woman is the exact opposite and she needs to stop being so selfish. She needs to get it working mainly since it's her job to bolster her husband.

Duchess Kate ‘has a fear of public speaking,’ that’s why she’s so ‘silent’
Quote
The Duchess of Cambridge isn’t much for public speaking. We learned that the hard way, because the very, very few public speeches she’s made have been… um, bad. Hair-tossing, fidgeting, staring blankly at her notes for seconds, no eye contact with the audience, awkward silences, etc. Not everyone is cut out for public speaking, but it’s the kind of thing you can practice and rehearse, especially if your job requires smart media relations and the ability to communicate, which is exactly what royals are supposed to do. Even if Kate still struggled with making public speeches, the answer would then be “just do a few one-on-one TV interviews.” William and Harry do TV interviews several times a year, but not Kate. Well, anyway, The Daily Beast’s royal gossip guy has an interesting piece about Kate and how silent she is.

Waity the shy reclusive Jane Austen incarnation.
http://snn.bz/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/katecoolieFEATURE.gif
Waity is just raging that Wimpo didn't turn out to be the Top Toff she took him for.
Waity & the Klingons can't have a toff lifestyle because Wimpo has responsibilities that he needs to share.
In fact as long as Wimpo remains the lazy co dependent work avoider that he is now people may take less notice of Waity's pervasive inadequacy.


Title: Re: Kate's "fear" of public speaking
Post by: leogirl on November 03, 2015, 10:57:51 pm
She needs weighted hems and probably to wear shorts underneath her dresses just in case it gets to be extra windy.

I think Wimpo wants them to hide away. He seems angry/annoyed whenever he's out in public where there are photographers. I think he is protective of Kate and their babies.

Waity flat out doesn't care about her public speaking abilities. I'd bet real money the people who comment here have put more thought into how she can improve than she has. Clearly, many of us take pride in what we do and care to do it well. But Waity isn't like that. To her, she doesn't need to improve, because she's got what she wants in life and can get by without exiting her comfort zone. She can't get fired from her job for failing to perform and she knows it well. It's easier to avoid the uncomfortable task whenever possible, and do a horrible, nervous-looking job when she can't get out of it so no one will expect her to do it too often.

The extremely nervous-seeming woman giving those very, very short "speeches" is a far cry from the exhibitionist we saw walking down a runway in her underwear. Waity being nervous is a BS act IMO. I think she botches these things on purpose to manipulate the people close to her (Willy and the RF, etc.) to feel sympathy for her and hence not expect her to do that kind of "work" too often. I know some of the articles about Waity's fear of public speaking have claimed that in private, she's a "great communicator"... But IMO, she's just a sociopath manipulator.

She had a poster of William on her wall at Marlborough, confirmed by other students. KM lied later in the engagement interview, but there were lots of lies in that interview.

TB: There's a story that goes around that you had a picture of him on your wall.
William: There wasn't just one, there was about 20.
Miss Middleton: He wishes. No, I had the Levis guy on my wall, not a picture of William, sorry.
William: It was me in Levis honestly.

You know, I never get over how she's endlessly enabled; when she married she wasn't some blushing ingenue and wasn't someone who was plucked out of a convent or Islamic purdah living under her father's iron fist. She lived on her own, showed off everything in various stages of dress, so it's not like she's someone who is unused to public life or exposure.

Not surprised

I am too and that's because Throughout school I did not get the chance to practice simple as that.
Difference is that she has the best specialists at disposition to write her the best speeches and teach her to speak.
Diana practised interviews and stuff so she has no excuses. Besides in her 5 years of mariage she could have given many speeches if she wanted to. People would have forgiven her if it had been bad at first as long as she got better.
But she did not practice or use her ressources, she is still stumbling and trying to appear cute and nervous but as she gets older it gets irritating. It is only cute in children. It is even worst when you have the likes of Mary, Letizia, Maxima, Rania showing off what a strong educated woman can do.

^^What I find troubling in all these speeches is that there is no progress...none. The first speech is hard, I get it, especially with the press being there etc. But she has done several now and she still doesn't get it. The use of her voice is still off, she doesn't put the emphasize on the right words and that is distracting for the public.

And let's not even mention tha hair-tossing and the hands.

She has every opportunity to hire a good speech-coach and he/ she could have given her tips to improve. Just having a dry-run with the speech in advance would help massively. But she doesn't seem to improve and that is, I think, the result of Kate not preparing, not doing the work. The result is what we see...someone who doesn't know how to bring her point across and because of it, she is useless as a patron.

I put this on another thread earlier on:

I had the thought today that Kate reminds me of the character "Andrea" in the Devil Wears Prada. I took a different view than the conventional one.

Andrea showed up to the interview unprepared and basically not at all even trying to look presentable or even show enthusiasm to get hired. Throughout it all, she keeps slacking off and looking slovenly until she gets a makeover and actually makes a sincere effort to contribute. Yet, when she reaches her peak and becomes glamorous and elegant and seasoned, she throws it all away and does some kind of 'confession' to her jerk boyfriend about how he was 'right' in seeing her somehow become shallow and selfish because she evolved into a better dressed, better mannered person.

Kate doesn't even try to become a seasoned member of the FIRM and dresses like a dog died and keeps getting things wrong. She seems to think that this makes her a 'better' person than those around her and how not making an effort makes her fun and spontaneous and very good. As if being an adult is somehow a sign of being bitter and jaded and cynical. As if wising up makes her a boring stiff and being well dressed/coiffed makes her shallow. Thing is, that Miranda was in my view a better person, how Emily really did all she could to make the best of her job and for some reason Andrea was better.


There's nothing wrong with growth and there's nothing wrong with maturing. Kate can't seem to get it into her head that after a certain point, she should respect herself enough to just show up and do a good job while looking nice. Diana had gaffes early on, but she grew up and matured and did a professional job while looking nice. It's tiring that Kate refuses to take any of this seriously. Marie Antoinette thought protocol was one big joke and yet, when the revolution happened, the aristocrats didn't lift a finger to help Antoinette. Kate isn't more natural or fun or spontaneous just because she shows up and shirks. This is her JOB and she's making a mess of it.

I don't honestly think she would ever be good at it as she just doesn't have it in her.   It's not about the words (written by someone else), it's all about her and how she looks.  That awful first speech of hers conveys everything, she was like an over excited spaniel on speed with all that mouth gaping and hair flicking.

I remember in high school at the beginning of freshman year, everyone was afraid to give presentations. But we had to do them for every class, especially English, always presenting some aspect of each story or book we read. We even had to present things in Spanish class even though for most of us it was our first year of a foreign language... our favorite things, weather forecast, acting out different scenarios where we would use the language. By the end of the year, we were all pros. If a bunch of 14/15-year-olds can do it, so can she. And we had to write our own stuff!  :thumbsup:

She has no fear of:

*Grabbing after freebies
*Going on thousand mile excursions to the tropics
*Blabbing inanely about unrelated topics
*Wearing see through clothing sans panties
*Violating one round of protocol/precedence after another
*Leaking abusive lies about the aristocracy and BRF (that alone is almost treason)
*Blowing Charles' money on useless junk
*Scaring off women who might be interested in Harry, preventing Harry from developing a family life of his own
*Making loony faces at serious events or state occasions
*Skipping out on military duties and other charity work

She has no business not being ready and how long until the Queen balls up and wipes the floor with this headcase?

You can't really conquer a fear unless you face it head on!
If she honestly tried to improve she might feel much better in herself.

I think she doesn't have a fear, so much as a complete unwillingness to grow up and become an adult. She refuses to grow and she refuses to basically do her job and pick up some of the slack. I don't think she's aware of just how utterly pointless she's made of her role.

That was toe curlingly atrocious and there's absolutely no excuse for it. She's been married for almost 6 years and was plotting and waiting for this for a decade previous to her marriage.

Scarole obviously never thought beyond getting the ring, she should have prepared Waity better because now, any effort she makes at public speaking is excruciating. She's a disaster.

I remember Diana at age 19 or 20 when she was newly married or engaged and she did a speech in Welsh I believe, she was adorable and sincere, everyone loved her all the more for making such a brave attempt.

The irony is, that she ended up not prepared since she oddly likely thought that it was a long shot that it would happen. I don't think she was trained since she wasn't considered a serious contender by the palace. She wasn't brought under the palace wing and she was not at all trained by her mother mainly since it wasn't though speeches and a career that she met and managed to hold it, it was due to major bedroom acrobatics. I think her fear of public speaking is a sign of regression and not any phobia. It's also part of her act of being an insecure waif who basically is unable to handle the world.

^ Kate was probably told by Ma that all she has to do is show up.  Dummy probably didn't get it through her think head that with the title comes a JOB (maybe sound waves don't transmit through horse hair extensions?).
Not long after her wedding, Diana delivered a speech in Welsh and the same mannerisms, inflection, tone, and gestures - which were excusable for an inexperienced 20 year old - are copied to the letter by Kate today.  She has no identity of her own; and as much as I want to say how pathetic that is, Kate simply does not care.  She sealed her own fate by saying in the engagement interview that she does not care what other people think.

She thinks she is invincible. Sadly, that was said about the Titanic, and look what happened to that.  Nothing and nobody is invincible.

It could well be that Kate can't (and won't due to immaturity) handle the actualities of situations; she couldn't handle facing the RF after her nude scandal and she can't handle the press covering her at all and she keeps retreating to a regressive safe space that enables her to remain immature. So she doesn't spend time studying, but in hiding and frankly it shows. Her 'fear' is no different than that of an untested child who has no business being married, much in the role of consort or patron of charities.
