Translation:

Clan of Windsor has commoners for 350 years

LONDON - would not be easy for any family whose son or daughter is about to enter one of the clans observed and commented on in the world. But for Middleton, announcing the marriage of Prince William was an even bigger challenge due to the extra weight of the occasion: when Kate up to the altar, in 12 days, it will be the first commoner bride to marry a major round of Windsor provided that, in 1660, Anne Hyde said "yes" to the then Duke of York and future King James. And yet the bride was the daughter of a top aide of then ruler, Charles II.

Quite a different origin from Middleton, whose fortune, as well observed by some bad-languages ​​of the British aristocracy, was selling bags surprise party. At the same time, however, Kate's family will have to display the most noble behavior to deal with possible tensions and aroused attention from the moment that the future queen began dating not only a prince, but the eldest son of Charles and Lady Di back in late 2003. All this without the army of bodyguards and aides available to the groom's family.

Except for the statement read by Michael and Carole Middleton in November 2010, the announcement of the engagement, and an interview from her older sister Kate, Pippa, the magazine of the newspaper "Sunday Times" (there is also the younger brother, James ), the family remained averse to harassment of the media. But it does not suffer quietly: earlier this month, contacted the Complaints Commission on the Press to report the excesses in the pursuit Pippa and Carole, prompting a warning from the body to the newsrooms.

Kate and family do not have the apparatus of Windsor, but have an informal army at their disposal. In Bucklebury, north London, where his family moved after departing the company to sell products for parties, neighbors not only protect family secrets as the counter-attack critics.

- The only crime committed by Carole and Michael was starting his own business and ensure the welfare of the family. The fact that they created a daughter who hooked the prince's heart should be praised, but in this country obsessed with social classes, there are those who will never forgive them for not Middleton aristocratic origins - a family friend said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph .''

It was also a reference to the festival of anecdotes about blunders in dealing with the groom's family. And if Carole Middleton really made a slip to be caught chewing gum at William graduation ceremony at the Military Academy of Sandhurst in 2006, it never shattered royal protocol by using a "pleasure to meet you" instead of "how are you , madame? " to be presented to Queen Elizabeth. The two families only will be formally presented on the wedding day, since the queen has not requested a meeting prior to the bride's family - something that also fueled speculation of snobbery.

The 'crime' is that the Midds have deliberately exploited their daughter to gain a title (with Kate's ccoperation of course) and people are sick and tired of this immoral woman putting on airs of virtue and taking all she can get from the public and RF. Kate is going to be the feminine 'face' of Britain and go figure, this woman is rightly criticized in that respect and for some reason so many people are looking at it via a class issue.

What is also really puzzling is that Waity and her family have "worked hard" to be at the ultimate place in the aristocratic ladder by trying to make people ignore those commoner roots the newspapers are now talking about and by trying to be praised for being linked to whatever prominent personality.

She also should not forget that the Royal family legitimacy and strength is also found in the aristocracy's recognition of their power. Complaining about how the aristocracy has been snob enough not to open their arms wide to her family and her is tasteless and clearly shows her lack of intelligence IMHO.

She has already created division in a family (and country) in need of unity IMHO.
