Kate Middleton Attacked?
Was Kate Middleton attacked?
The Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant with her fist baby and the beautiful mom-to-be was not attacked physically, however Booker Prize winner Hilary Mantel has upset many Brits by attacking the royal as a bore with no real personality or skills.
Mantel, 60, compared Kate unfavorably to both Anne Boleyn – one of her historical heroines – and to Princess Diana, insisting both had more personality.
She described the wife of Prince William as "a jointed doll on which certain rags are hung... with no personality of her own".
Prime Minister David Cameron said Mantel's comments were 'misguided'
The Prime Minister told the BBC: 'What I've seen of Princess Kate at public events, at the Olympics and elsewhere is this is someone who's bright, who's engaging, who's a fantastic ambassador for Britain.
'We should be proud of that, rather than make these rather misguided remarks.'
Is Kate a dull uninteresting royal?
More news on Kate and Prince William, this time with a more positive spin…
Prince William is very good at making a "connection" with people, even when he doesn't know them.
The British royal is a patron of many charities and does much work to help other people, and his genuine and warm nature is apparent wherever he goes according to radio DJ Sara Cox - who is an ambassador for homeless charity Centrepoint along with the prince.
She said: "He's a lovely guy. He's brilliant. He can just walk into a room full of random people and make a connection with each one. And when he meets the young people he can relate to them, because he's worked really closely with them.
"You don't really feel you're with the Duke Of Cambridge - it's just William. All the young people totally love him, and he brought along [Duchess] Catherine last time. She was equally lovely. William works really hard."
Sara also has a gift she is planning to send to the prince and his pregnant wife - formerly known as Kate Middleton - which is something she used herself after the birth of her children, Lola, eight, Isaac, four, and two-year-old Renee.
She added: "They'll make lovely parents. I want to send Kate a book that I send to all my pregnant friends - the same one I've given to [fellow DJ] Fearne [Cotton]. It's called 'Spiritual Midwifery'. It's brilliant."
