Will a royal baby be top of her list? Kate will give up her job but won't be a working princess right away

Quote
Kate, who turns 29 in January, is to give up her job as a website designer and photographer at the family business Party Pieces despite previous plans to continue after the wedding.

But she won’t be taking up full-time royal duties instead. Her only official duties - including opening ceremonies and attending charity events - will be on the arm of her RAF pilot husband in the immediate future, St James’s Palace confirmed. Kate will not get her own office and will instead share staff with William.

Why am I not surprised with this? Why am I not surprised?

Not surprising. If she isn't sure if she can handle duties on her own, WHY IS SHE MARRYING HIM!!!! At some point she will have to do ehr own duties and engagements and she can't just put these things off.

Quote
Kate Middleton will not forge a role as a working princess immediately after she marries, fuelling speculation that she and Prince William plan to start a family straight away.

Go figure, she isn't interested in working, but lolling about. Making a family is no excuse, each princess has always worked right away and had babies later on, after establishing themselves.

Quote
William, 28, added: ‘I think we’ll take it one step at a time. We’ll sort of get over the marriage first and then maybe look at the kids.


This is certainly a different idea.

Quote
Second, does the royal family not look at the Crown Princesses of Europe and see how accomplished they are? Mary of Denmark = lawyer, Letizia of Spain = Anchorwoman and journalist, Maxima of the Netherlands = International banker....Catherine of England = huhhuh

Liz

Catherine of England = Going to the gym, attending Issa fashion shows, partying in rollerskates, hanging out at Boujis and going on numerous vacations with her prince.

That's all that me and other Australians know

Well, I am sure the comments will get worse and worse as time goes by. She should start working, mainly since she's had more than enough leisure time as it is.

This really is not surprising to me. It seems like she is following in the footsteps of Camilla and using her as an example of what she expects.

Disaster in the making. This will be worse since she won't work, but will jet set around aplenty while muching bonbons, wearing her tiara and gowns, dancing like a horse and putting on airs of propriety. She is so stupid to think that she needs to be eased into anything. Duties can be made fun if you actually take a healthy attitude; she wasn't forced into this and I am more than sure that she fails to realize that the public is ready to start crucifying her. She wouldn't be saying these things if she were aware.

Why am I not surprised either ? Frenchies got it right in 1789, trust me... That's unbelievable : it's only 4 days after the announcement and they're already finding new excuses for her laziness !  screaming

William has just thrown his two fingers at our faces, his country and people. The problem is : the people never forget, fingers will be thrown back. Period. William you're a c.... Sorry mods, if you want to edit my post that's allright, but that coward doesn't deserve my respect anymore !

Kate has something to prove whether her and her fans want to admit it or not. She is seen as lazy and her doing nothing as a Royal will just make matters worse. Her fans can pretend it is only a few on forums that think she is allergic to work but the fact that it was addressed in the engagement interview shows that her workshy image is common knowledge. She has to show quickly post marriage that she will work, we are paying for her now so she better not expect a free ride


Quote
If the two are seen going on vacations and not doing work, the press would quickily turn from adoration to complaining and criticism. The public would ask why should we pony up money for royals upkeep when the heir to their heir and his wife try to "live normally." If they want to "live normally" the republicans may question then why if they don't pull their weight should they support this family with tax money. I hope the courtiers are savvy enough to study thesituton and advise Kate and WIlliam on the realities of their status  regarding being senior royals. WHile it's admirable to have young royals people can "relate to" royals still have responsibilties to work for  a living if they are supported by the public. And the public apparently do have to pay for some of the cost of this wedding. If it is said that William is "protective" of her fine, but it can't be perceived that she's "helpless" and can't do things on her own. She needs to stand on her own two feet. She and Wills are grown up now and should take responsibility. A husband and wife should support each other and the woman can't be seen as someone who needs to be "rescued" by her husband. That went out centuries ago. Kate could be perceived as being "too sheltered" and "helpless." As long as she isn't expected to do 200 engagements or somethng like that, it is reasonable that she is perceived as working even if it is somethng gradual,not playing housewiffe and never being seen or rarely seen.

Quote
Kate can't be a "full time Mommy. She's not Kate Smith of Liverpool who stays home and he comes home from work and says honey I'm home. She will probably choose help and nannies. If she wants to be "ordinary" and sit home with the kids with no help, the public will wonder why they have to pony up tax money for a housewife (who is a future Queen) who just sits at home  changing nappies and watching the telly. That IMO won't happen. She of course will have time with the children. But even Diana had to use nannies and was expected to do royal appearances. I think it unrealistic to believe the Queen and courtiers would just let a new Princess sit home and have babies and watch the kids. Royals don't do that, particularly future Queens who need to earn their keep.

Yup. I don't think Kate really understands that she has no room for error at this point. At their marriages, the other princesses had established careers and had that respect at the very least of all of it. The problem is that her faux pas will end up being magnified because of her lack of established work ethic and the FACT that she isn't unaware of expected dress codes. She has bragged about moving in royal circles, she should know the drill. After marriage, an 'oh my God' won't go down well. She has to work, she has had all this leisure time. If say for instance, a phlebotomist wanted to, after the marriage, to take some time off and concentrate on family life, people would applaud it and more than understand. But Kate has no safety net.

She is facing a huge test and she isn't so young that putting off duties would be understandable. She's past an age where most have already established themselves and at an age where women are getting married, but her circumstances are so 'off' and her motives are so obvious. She is going to be the least accomplished Consort among all the others and the only one with a dinky resume, coming last even after Mette-Marit.

Deep down, I think she'll end up like the other Consorts, just there, nothing exceptional, fashion problems and the occasional faux pas. The coverage will be mainly centered in the tabloids, not the establishment papers since Kate isn't someone with important contacts really. She'll jet set around during her free time and have the kids, leave them with nannies except for the occasional overseas trip, then her and William might have problems, but they will be centered on something trivial like her fashion/behavior or his flirting or preoccupation with duties. The Court will treat her well, but at the best be icy and resigned to having her at the Court.

Just worse off in terms of everything. No one though how Diana was going to survive, but she did fine in the end for her age and problems; now, go figure, Kate is a decade older and even worse off, even if she does have a degree.

She might have Diana's ring and have William propose to her on his first loves family property, but is she isnt careful she will quickly be compared to Sarah soon enough.

Had a look at the DM survey.

Asked about Kate making a good Queen.

45% said yes.
9% said no.
46% said dont know/dont care.

Thats a high number who havent made up their mind on her yet, but if she isnt careful the dont knows may go into no's in a survey on her.

It will take more than just great looks to be a princess

Quote
But there’s more to being a successful member of a modern Royal Family than that. In the 21st century we need a princess we can admire regardless of her royal title, not just because of it. Thus far, I feel that Kate has not showed us her true mettle.

She had a first-class education, yet seemed to have little ambition to ­succeed on her own two feet beyond a part-time job with a fashion company and helping out with her family’s mail order business.

So Amanda Platell thinks Kate's lack of work since leaving uni is down to Williams advisors? These are the same people who are guiding her now. Phew..thought it may have been just Kate being lazy and having an over-inflated sense of self. Thank god thats been cleared up thankyou

Sophie had a career before she married Edward, Diana was a nanny, Fergie bounced around from a PR firm, an art gallery, then she went to work for a publishing company.  It's Kate who has no real work ethic.  Even William was said to have suggested to Kate to get a job and a career. She had the chance to prove herself as competent and independent long before the engagement.  Now she won't be able to hide behind the palace walls.  They're going to feed her to the sharks and it's her fault if she doesn't do well.

Kate does now want to become as famous as Diana was, so has reportedly decided not to attend events on her own. Instead she will always go with William.

Kate has apparently even been watching footage of Diana and reading about her, to learn more about public life. She has also been discussing the way her life will change with those close to her, with William’s uncle Price Edward’s wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex set to help her settle in.

Shouldn't she be reading books, practicing with courtiers, and learning protocol, not watching movies? Diana did behind the scenes practice and watching footage isn't enough to teach someone anything about the actualities of royal life. Diana is only one person in the thousand year history of the RF.
