This is Waity finding an excuse never to work.

She works very hard, it takes a lot of work to find excuses not to work. :laugh: The article mentioned her very close relationship with her children...when I see photos of Kate and her children and of Victoria of Sweden and her kids, the difference is huge and Victoria seems a lot closer and happier than Kate. She and her husband should start practising what they preach and go to therapy, it would do them good.

I agree Joanna that when you see photos of Kate with the children it is completely different to other royals like Victoria or even Charlene. She doesn't seem to have a close relationship with the children based on some photos.

^ I don't think she sees them much. They have two full-time nannies and don't do that many appearances (think of the number of hours per week they are actually working). If she and William were really "hands on" parents, they would only need one part-time nanny most of the time, and the two full-time nannies would only be needed when they are touring out of the country and the kids are staying home.

Kate and Ma's favourite occupations as we know are watching boxed sets of TOWIE, guzzling their Chablis with cigarettes, shopping on line, having expensive beauty treatments  and b-tching about the other Royals.  There definitely isn't time for work in their shallow wrong values lives.

My parents were ardent monarchists and looked up to the monarchy. They must be spinning in their graves at how low the RF has sunk. That family should be held up as an example of how NOT to live.

I think Kate made the biggest mistake of her life marrying into the BRF; if she does not work for six months, she'll be toast. She can't slack off and can't keep skipping out on engagements and other events.

Waity IMO is not caring for Bruiser and Viperette on a regular basis because she behaves borderline aggressive towards them and they seem ill at ease with her.
She does nothing all day except sleeping in, watching TV , smoking, drinking and hours of daily plotting with the Viper.
No compare that to Charlene who actually is a hands on mom, spends lots of time with Jaques and Gabriella and proudly shows them off whenever there's an opportunity.

There are no photo's like this of Waity and Viperette because there's just no bond. Those kids are means to and end and nothing more.

^^^ I agree that kate has very little involvement with the children, she has no bond with them. I am sure the majority of G and C's time is spent with the nanny and they see their parents very seldom. They seem relaxed in the company of Maria.

I hope she gets her back extender (my hubby's name for a flat butt) in order  quick, fast, & in a hurry. Everyone from the South (USA) knows the saying "from the mouth of babes speak the truth". Before you know it Uncle Harry &  Meghan, who both love kids will be coming  around more after the new baby is born just as reinforcements. Then what? Bad press? As much as the public loved Di the switching of nannies is foul especially whenever it effects the stabilization of little ones. (The words of a former licensed  social worker)

When Waity is with the kids, she's probably angry at having to deal with them as well as actually work, so they are most likely nervous or even afraid of her.

I think she'll be working a lot more now Meghan is on the scene. ;)  I've think I've seen more photos of her in the DM since "the" engagement than I have all year!  IMHO Meghan is the best thing that could have happened to Kate as she will not like someone-else stealing the limelight.  Whether it's too little too late remains to be seen because Kate has cultivated the "stay at home mother" to her own detriment.  Rather than portraying herself as a busy mother who makes time to champion under supported causes, her idleness has meant that the general public (her future subjects) only see her as someone who does the odd appearance every now and again - preferably when there are A'listers in attendance.

I thought I would dredge this up.

I find it ironical how she's the happiest stay at home mother on the planet, but minus the reality that she isn't paid by the taxpayer to be a stay at home mother. She clearly doesn't want to work and I do wonder if her lack of even trying is why the press has largely stopped covering her. Clearly the press has moved on to Meg and I do believe that she might in fact find herself with nothing no matter how hard she works from here on out.

She's said she's keen to work and wants to work and get legwork in, but clearly she's officially on the wane and becoming yesterday's news. Even when she gets back from 'maternity leave,' I am certain that she's going to end up getting only sideline coverage, nothing front and center and I am sure that her day of keeping the press interested is over. A new frock isn't going to basically stimulate interest and no one takes her seriously anymore. Even her husband seems bored with her.

She's like a celebrity that has played one too many games with the press and now everyone is fed up with her and giving her the cold shoulder.

Post by: HRHOlya on August 25, 2018, 11:09:15 pm
^ Being a stay at home mum is marvellous for anyone with her resources: the tedious bits (household chores) are done by staff, you can even hoist your kids onto staff when you find them tedious, and a seemingly endless shopping budget. Makes it very easy.

Can wait for the next bs headline shortly before she's bound to come out of hiding how she's "keen to hit the ground running!"
Gawd. Spare me.

She is the epitome of what is wrong with marriage; husband (in this case the nation) foots the bills while she plays at being an adult. I bet you anything that if William had to pay his own way, he never would have married her. He would have married someone with a top career or married a GENUINE heiress to a huge fortune. I do know that she's foolish to think that she can get away with this once Charles becomes King and I do not think William loves her enough to put up with her mooching for long. I do know that I am certain each time he's around her, he looks like he loathes her and she is stupid to think that she in fact is secure. If William reaches a point where he has nothing to lose, I am certain that he'll cut her loose and start a campaign against her.

Her lack of work is only increasing her number of enemies. Her charities are not getting any money and certainly, she is clearly viewed as an annoyance by the courtiers.

Post by: windsor2 on August 25, 2018, 11:53:26 pm
She’s not called Waity for nothing.  :cookie:  It feels at times like Wills is done with her and Meghan, who’s just like her in many ways, was brought in to lessen the exposure that she gets with Wills. I believe that their marriage as well as their fraud (members only section) was about to blow and this scheme with Harry and Meghan was cooked up to have Wills and the royal family sort things out behind the scenes. I for one, would love if she gets the boot regardless of how it’ll look to the public. Her lazy good for nothing self should never have been allowed in the royal family in the first place. She has a very pivotal role and she blows it each and every time she steps out of the house/palace. Wills looks like a fool not knowing his role as he’s just as lazy and ignorant. What’s going to happen when she gets back from her very long maternity/lazy  :tehe: leave. Will she magically start to actually do some work and give legiable speeches and read the briefs as preparation for the engagement or will it be the same bs as before.


Title: Re: Kate: I will only work when it suits me
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 26, 2018, 12:17:54 am
Thing is, William was not drilled into growing up and dropping his youthful idiocy; he was allowed to be the 'good guy' and allowed others in his life to take the fall for him. If he had been forced to do a full program of duties while at St. Andrews (just doing fun little appearances would have really boosted his relationship with his people) he wouldn't have had time to go to bars and clubs and jet set around. He was left to his own devices, neglected really, in an environment and around people who preferred to push boundaries instead of respect and adhere to them. Kate was someone who viewed 'no' as negotiable and few people can handle someone who doesn't let up. He ended up in a 'relationship' with someone who was WAY more seasoned in life than he was and FEW can actually handle that kind of scheming.

As for work, by the time she was engaged, her personality as an idle, pampered mistress was set and done. She was never going to do charity work, or care about charity work. I am certain that all she wants is to enjoy the good things in life to the full, things she believes she has 'earned.'

Post by: BostonLibby on August 26, 2018, 06:55:35 pm
^ Very well said KF.  I agree with all your points.  I think Carole and Mike put a lot of pressure on Willy after 2007 to get engaged. He held out for a long time, but finally relented, IMO.  My husband and I know very few couples who married their college sweethearts and lasted long term.  Yes, there are some, but those I know were very grounded people with a lot of support around them during the early years of marriage.

Am sick of the 'hit the ground running' line from those around her.  It's never happened and it never will.  This long maternity leave (from what, we wonder) was interrupted only by one small engagement right before Wimbledon in order to justify her attendance at Wimbledon.  How transparent!


Title: Re: Kate: I will only work when it suits me
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 26, 2018, 08:14:15 pm
William should have told Mike and Carole that he wasn't making Kate stick around and should have made it clear that he didn't owe Kate a ring because he had sex with her. Thing is, that her so called reputation was already largely a joke by the time 2007 rolled along and I am certain that among his set it was worse. As for honor, she had no claim to honor since she had certainly not gotten his full attention in any honorable way on that catwalk. Parading in a bra and panty set twice (once in the famous sheer 'dress,' but the other time in that white bra/panty set with that black sarong tied over her hips) shows her to be something other than honorable.

He owed her nothing in the area of marriage and frankly the fact that he fell fully for that narrative that the Midds were putting out proves he is an idiot. They were college sweethearts, but that doesn't translate into a lifetime of obligation and duty. She had no right to latch on to him and expect a ring right away, on her timeline. It was clear that he had duties and goals he had to meet up with and none of them were going to be changed for Kate's sake. It's bitter irony that the supposedly down to earth middle class girl turned out to be one of the most vapid possible additions to the BRF and clearly didn't understand WHY William had a right to a life of his own.

Thing is, that the entire planet was watching her to see what she would make of herself and she had every single opportunity to build fabulous connections and clearly could have ended up earning a lot of respect and leverage. Instead she mooched around and put it about that she was 'in training' to be a consort, which we now know is not the truth. She got it into her head that since she was middle class, that she had a RIGHT to not just get taken care of, but be taken care of in a style she wanted to become accustomed to. She drops her panties for a prince and has had the gall to think that she is above honest work and deserves chivalry.

It makes my blood boil that she wants the entire planet to just sit around and wait for her to pull it together and she has the GALL to make all sorts of promises.

Thing is, that Kate started out in that marriage at square one with the public, but in the red with the courtiers and court set. Instead of dedicating herself to day to day volunteer work, she instead ends up swanning around London, leaving her husband to rot up North, then wonders why she isn't liked by them. I find it startling that she has no idea that her work is her leverage for her to get what she wants out of life and she has nerve getting people to literally move an entire office (Huffington Post) and then jilts them in favor of a shopping spree. It galls me that she is so determined to NOT know about doing actual work, but just mooches around.

I think there is no going any lower in our opinions of this totally useless and self-serving woman. History is full of cheap, royal gold-diggers whose own parents put them forward as booty calls/convenient pieces of a@@. It was never to be known as woman of any worth or merit - it was the glamour and and luxuries. Now because she does squat and never does anything that we now have MM put forward. It doesn't get any lower than this. Why does the rest of the RF stand idly by?

^

She has been treated far to lightly but it all goes back to Diana and the outcry on her death of how badly she was treated by the RF.  As QE’s only objective is to preserve the Monarchy she (QE)is walking on eggshells.  QE can’t risk the downfall of the Monarchy again as much as she would like to take lazy Kate to task.  Crafty ma mid knew this, homed in on it and got sprogs churned out in quick succession which makes it even more difficult.  Kate is far too lazy to do any work of significance.   The only things she will do are the fun activities if those.


Title: Re: Kate: I will only work when it suits me
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 10, 2018, 06:09:51 pm
You know, if HM were worried about the downfall of the monarchy, I do believe that HM should stop coddling her brat heirs. Charles uses his vaunted time in Gordonstoun as the reason for all his personal failings and the rest of the BRF moans all the time about not having the 'luxury' of a normal life. HM refuses to get her dynasty in line and put them to productive work and refuses to start doling out punishments when they challenge her authority.

I don't think Kate realizes just how pointless and wasteful her entire life has been. I do know that she's at a point where she has no idea that she hasn't settled into a normal life, she's settled into a way of life that is very close to going out the window. She's very obviously unaware that the aristos dislike her, the press is only holding back out of respect for HM, and the chances of her becoming Queen Consort get slimmer by the day as the monarchy continues to run out of justifications for their existence.

She's not working at all and it is rather disconcerting that she apparently is unaware that it is likely that William might in fact leave her once he gets the chance. I do not know if William will care about the PR aspects of what the tabloids think once she pushes him too far.

When is Kate back at work (not that she was working much in the first place)? Louis was born almost 5 months ago. She'd barely finished maternity leave from the last sprog before she got pregnant again. It's an absolute joke.

You know, Kate made a huge mistake when she failed to hit the ground running and chose to make the public wait to the point of frustration for her to start doing a regular program of duties. She reminds me of a celebrity who fails to strike while the iron is hot and build a portfolio of good work and therefore misses the chance to build some kind of foundation of good work. Then they realize their mistake and try to make up for it and basically fall way behind; then someone new hits the scene and once the press attention moves on for good, starts lamenting how everyone is against them. I do believe that Kate is unaware that the world is moving on and soon her attempts to get attention will be viewed as pathetic. I do believe that she is unaware that she's become old news and passe. I do not believe that she's at a point where she can regain credibility and I do believe that she refuses to face that even her inlaws are fed up with her and her husband barely bothers to even try with her anymore.

I wonder if she realizes that no one is in fact trying to hold her back from a great life.

The bad thng for her is that Meghan's taking centre stage right now and is a massive joke that people are tired of. She'll be gone and the spotlight will be heavily on Waity; future queen consort.  :tehe: What an utter mistake to have her in this position to be in because she really is a useless lightweight who's been boosted up over the years by the press. It's still funny how she looks down on Meghan as someone beneath her when she's so much like her.

Post by: YooperModerator on September 11, 2018, 12:30:23 pm
It's going to be on an atomic bomb scale of changes when the Queen passes away.  I just wonder how much the people of the country will put up with after that happens.

Kate has done what was expected of her, albeit with the least possible energy involved.  So, how is that going to go down when the bastion and shield of HM is absent?

I don't think it's going to be an easy ride for Kate then if, and only if, a republic takes their place.  And if the monarchy stays under some level of detente, more is going to be expected of her as POW.  Interesting.

Post by: Kuei Fei on September 11, 2018, 01:49:33 pm
If the monarchy falls, I bet you anything that William would throw her out of his life quickly and go on. Thing is, that if he had been normal, he would have filed a restraining order against her instead of taking her back in 2007. William married her because he could afford to put up with her antics, not because of love; if he had been required to find his own way in the world, I am certain he would not have married someone with no money or no status. I've been rejected because of a perceived lack of means, so  I know what I'm talking about.

She only got what she has because the BRF is too stupid and too pampered to know how to get rid of her and act decisively.

If she spends all her time getting pregnant and not working, people will not ridicule her, they'll just be dismissive of her and move on to others who are actually doing something with their lives. As will William; he doesn't seem enthralled with her anymore and he does in fact seem dismissive of her. He hasn't regularly threatened the media, he is obviously not going out of his way for his new in-laws as he used to, and he really doesn't sound too engaged with his children. He wasn't even at Charlotte's first day of school, while Kate was there with the rest of the mothers, taking photos.

Duchess of Cambridge
 
 cepesmith
If the text of the various reports of the return of the Duchess of Cambridge had been read carefully, it would have been obvious that she is not coming back full time until the new year.  Best example is from The Daily Telegraph (UK).  “The Duchess will have a few engagements throughout the rest of the year as she gradually adapts back to life as a working royal whilst juggling the various demands of her young brood.
Prince George has just returned to Thomas’s Battersea for his second school year, while Princess Charlotte attends Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington.
The Duchess will be working full time again from the New Year, the Telegraph understands.”
This report is dated 2 October.
https://skippyisheretostay.tumblr.com

Her patronage's dropped her and now she's going to basically do nothing for the rest of the year. She has basically taken the year off.  :bat: What's the point of her? Funny how prior to the wedding, people saw what she was about. It's apitty Wills didn't and dumped her again now matter what her family or the press would've said.  :cookie: Now she's just a very dull boring limpet living off the royal family and offering nothing in return. I think with the Harry/Meghan show, the press won't ask questions as to why she's not doing her fare share that her position requires. Citing her being a mum of 3 is laughable in more ways than one as she has a bunch of servants and nurses to look after them.


Title: Re: Kate: I will only work when it suits me
Post by: meememe on October 09, 2018, 02:59:57 am
Which patronages have dropped her?

Looking at the British Monarchy website she has 16:

100 Women in Finance
Action for Children
All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (aka Wimbledon)
Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
East Anglia's Children's Hospices
National Portrait Gallery
National History Museum
Nursing Now campaign
Place2Be
SportsAid
The 1851 Trust
The Air Cadet Organisation
The Lawn Tennis Association
The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
The Victoria and Albert Museum


The Art Room doesn't appear on the list created by the British Monarchy website but she is listed as a patron on the website for The Art Room itself.

Post by: windsor2 on October 09, 2018, 03:13:41 am
The better question woud be how many of her patronage's has she visited, done anything for throughout the year? 


Title: Re: Kate: I will only work when it suits me
Post by: Kuei Fei on October 09, 2018, 03:47:59 am
I think she has done nothing for them; her job is to be seen doing her duties and clearly she isn't. No one really believes she's going to be dutiful anymore and clearly her antics of making the world wait on her has backfired. No one is waiting around, the press has Harry and Meg, the BRF is crumbling in terms of goodwill of the public, and William has made it clear that yet again, Jecca comes first in his life and always will.

I think at this point, give it a handful of years and there will be a divorce. In that family if you marry in, you're only as good as the amount of work you put in and it's a cruel thing, but it's the truth. She's just an odd addendum to their lives, whose place in that family has never been meant to be. She'll be paid off via a small sum (not much since she will have no leverage or status to bargain and get anything substantial) and relegated to the social backwater that is the place of ex-consorts.

She won't get a place at KP, she won't get a huge amount of money, and she will not at all have an office since she doesn't work so there won't be money for office expenses. The kids will be quietly shunted aside and some excuse will be made as to why they won't be in the succession any longer. I think she is truly unaware of just how utterly close she is to losing everything she ever gained via that relationship with William that started when she sashayed down that catwalk in her undies.

It's a real shame since she would have had it so much better if she had just remained his friend and enjoyed the kudos from that. It will take time, but soon all her patronages will come out and say they ended their association with her and she'll be moved out and there'll be some kind of excuse. I'm certain that the palace will say that the duchess simply hasn't done her duties, they'll cite infidelity, they'll find something and she'll be broomed out just as she was in 2007, only this time for good.

Duchess of Cambridge
cepesmit
If the text of the various reports of the return of the Duchess of Cambridge had been read carefully, it would have been obvious that she is not coming back full time until the new year.  Best example is from The Daily Telegraph (UK).  “The Duchess will have a few engagements throughout the rest of the year as she gradually adapts back to life as a working royal whilst juggling the various demands of her young brood.
Prince George has just returned to Thomas’s Battersea for his second school year, while Princess Charlotte attends Willcocks Nursery School in Kensington.
The Duchess will be working full time again from the New Year, the Telegraph understands.”
This report is dated 2 October.

Her patronage's dropped her and now she's going to basically do nothing for the rest of the year. She has basically taken the year off.  :bat: What's the point of her? Funny how prior to the wedding, people saw what she was about. It's apitty Wills didn't and dumped her again now matter what her family or the press would've said. :cookie: Now she's just a very dull boring limpet living off the royal family and offering nothing in return. I think with the Harry/Meghan show, the press won't ask questions as to why she's not doing her fare share that her position requires. Citing her being a mum of 3 is laughable in more ways than one as she has a bunch of servants and nurses to look after them.

I cannot imagine just how ticked off HM and Charles and the courtiers; getting dropped by a patronage is a signal that she's not doing anything with them and I do not think she's patron of any of the other charities. I believe she's actually lost all of them and the courtiers have given up on trying to help her, to try to get her to help themselves. If she were a celeb, she would no longer have a career and I think her 'career' as a 'working royal' is basically over as well. The press has Harry and Meg now and it is clear that Charles favors Meg if he's spending all this money on her. Meg is doing more and I do believe she could very well end up losing her marriage. As life has shown, marriage is not set in stone and the BRF did not let her in to be a simple country housewife and be a soccer mom member of the gentry.

The Meghan Harry show is definitely a disraction against Wills and Waity but eventually, the press has to focus on them because they're the future king and queen consort. The press, government and the royal family needs to deal with what's at hand; the breakdown of Wills and Waity's marriage as they're nw just keeping up appearances but won't be able to do that for much longer as Waity's public engagement's have dwindled. Pull the side show that's Meghan and Harry and get to the actual important matter before it's too late. Boot lazy Wity out along with Meghan now!

^^ Yes. I think also that H/M are a distraction, for now, but won't be for long. They don't exactly exude stability, and as we all know, there's more there than the PR/press narrative. Both couples seem to be on a fast track to disaster.

People don't forget how Lazy Will and Kate have been. I notice this in the comments sections and boards. Kate especially got plenty of "from what?" comments when her returning from maternity leave stories came out. Some found it offensive.

WK might be getting good press now, but I do wonder if whether or not WK realize that this is only a short term respite and all the good press in the world isn't going to build ties that the UK government needs them to build. Good press will not translate into trade deals and will not translate into alliances (diplomatic or political or both) and good press doesn't mean that WK are entitled to do anything or have anything that their people need. Neither are even in a position to dictate to the press since the press itself could easily turn on them and ruin them. Kate especially should be more conciliatory since if not for the press, she wouldn't be where she is.

True. The press helped walk Kate down the aisle in WA. One would think they would know enough to treat the press with kid gloves. Time and time again, though, they've proved that wrong. The press is not their enemy. They need the press, especially given their life choices.

Kate still hasn't learnt to keep her mouth closed.  A large gaping guffawing mouth is so unladylike and unRoyal.

Yes, but how else is she supposed to show off those teeth made allegedly by Dr. Fillion? The whole world has to know that she has £10k teeth.

This is old, but details her choppers. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/kate-middleton/8917484/French-dental-pioneer-created-naturally-perfect-smile-for-Kate-Middleton-it-is-claimed.html

No member of the BRF is there to do trade deals or for diplomatic alliances. Their job is purely ceremonial and goodwill - nothing more.

If the politicians want trade deals they have to do it. The politicians do know, however, that sending a popular young royal couple can assist in setting up the situation where trade talks etc can follow but that is not the role of the royals. If a trade deal doesn't follow it isn't down to the royal couple but to the failure of the politicians and diplomats whose job it is to do these things - just as when they do happen the politicians and diplomats get the credit.

The BRF are there to simply look good, make people feel good, take people's minds of the bad things in the world. They are not politicians or diplomats and do not get involved in political or diplomatic situations. It is actually not permitted for them to be involved in political matters at all.

Neither set of newly married royals are 'young' in the context that they would be exciting to be around and as for trade, true enough, but royals are supposed to grease the wheels.

As for alliances, the only reason that royal consorts get any kind of respect, it's through the allies they make via their charity work. Leverage is leverage and it can make a HUGE difference in how a royal wife ends up if the marriage is dissolved. One way for a royal ex to survive via support is to have a huge amount of established work that would create a huge void if said royal ex were to leave their charity work and that is how they manage to continue to live a comfortable life.

True. The press helped walk Kate down the aisle in WA. One would think they would know enough to treat the press with kid gloves. Time and time again, though, they've proved that wrong. The press is not their enemy. They need the press, especially given their life choices.

After all the press did for her, you would think that the press would be Kate's best friends and she would be engaging with them more often via appearances and schmoozing herself. One day however the press will move on to the latest addition to the world stage and I am sure that Kate will want the press to pay attention to her, but the press will ignore her and choose to focus on the latest addition. She will miss that attention and clearly it will be pathetic that a royal will have to work to get attention and just one day the press will bite back at her and tell her they're no longer interested in her. The press made her and the press can ruin her image and her image is all she has left.

In the event that William does find some pretext to end his marriage (given that he's openly seen with Jecca just recently should be enough of a warning sign), with so little work experience, she has no way to leverage even a slender hold on her current posh life. Every empty day is just another mark in the negative side of the ledger of her position and since she does no work, the BRF will not feel her absence keenly and neither will the patronages she has left. I am certain that in the event of the end of her marriage, the BRF will not feel obligated to pay for her to have an office, or put her up in KP for the rest of her life, or even send her off with a decent settlement. Really, just because Diana was well treated, it does not mean that Kate will.

If she thinks she's entitled to anything because of the dating years, she will experience a nasty shock mainly since that will not count for anything in the eyes of anyone who will rule on the amount that William will have to give. She has literally no leverage to speak of and she has no idea just how disposable she really is. HM might forbid a divorce, but a King Charles might in fact reassure William that he will give his blessing in dissolving the marriage and Kate will be left with nearly nothing.
