Duchess Kate Middleton: ‘Mantel more like No bloody Man and tell’

AWARD-winning author Hilary Mantel says the Royal Family pick a brood mare the same way a Scientology star picks a wife. They like an easy-wipe surface. Whilst Mantel was comparing Kate Middleton to a dead-eyed mannequin, the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, for it is she, was getting back to work after her Caribbean getaway.

Pregnant Evan Rachel Wood slams the Daily Mail for perving at her unborn baby

THE Daily Mail is aghast and dismayed at the behaviour of Chi magazine in publishing pictures of pregnant Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge.

It’s called Chitawdry” and “cheap“.  Those swine will stoop low to get photos of celebs.

The Mail, of course, took the pledge never again to publish paparazzi photos. It did that to honour Princess Diana. On 8 September 1997, eight days after the death of Princess Diana, the Mail wrote:

Mail leads the way in banning paparazzi pictures.

The proprietor of the Daily Mail, Mail on Sunday and Evening Standard announced last night that his papers will not in future purchase pictures taken by paparazzi Viscount Rothermere, chairman of the Daily Mail and General Trust plc said: ‘I am, and always have been, an admirer of Diana, Princess of Wales, and nagged my editors to protect her so far as they could against her powerful enemies. In view of Earl Spencer’s strong words and my own sense of outrage, I have instructed my editors no ‘paparazzi’ pictures are to be purchased without my knowledge and consent.’

Kate Middleton’s face turns to leather

KATE Middleton Pregnancy Watch: The Duchess of Cambridge is a bag lady:

National Ledger: “Kate Middleton is pregnant and many are celebrating including those in the fashion world.”

To celebrate the Duchess of Cambridge’s pregnancy, Gucci has made an exclusive bag for Duchess Catherine.

The Italian fashion house has created the Catherine Bag for the 30-year-old royal, following the announcement she is expecting her first child with husband Prince William .

Guccio Gucci, grandson of Gucci founder Guccio Gucci, says the bag is completely handmade and hand-sewn, and “was inspired by Kate’s delicate features and immense charm”.

They made a leather bag because it looked like Kate’s face. So leathery is Kate what when she opens her mouth you don’t know whether to listen or toss your keys in…
