By Royal Appointment

What do Prince William and Kate Middleton share with Coleen McGloughlin and Alex Curran?

THE link between royalty and football is clear.

On one side are the pampered celebrity socialites and professional shoppers; on the other are the Wags.

But no more.

As the Mail reports, Prince William has “urged” his girlfriend, the lithesome Kate Middleton, to get a job. Why? Because he did not want her to be portrayed as a Wag.

The paper says the Prince was concerned his lover had yet to find a job. Having graduated from At Andrews University in June 2005 with a degree in History of Art, Kate was well placed to embark on a career working in a Bond Street art gallery or delivering local newspapers.

But still she had no job. And, as the Mail notes, Kate had been spotted carrying lots of carrier bags, causing her to look not enough unlike Coleen McLoughlin.

Wills was displeased. He had a word. And it seems that Kate listened to her prince. She is now working as an assistant buyer for clothing company Jigsaw’s junior accessories line.

She secured this job thank to her innate grasp of the fashion world, and her mum Carol being on speaking terms with the company’s owners John and Belle Robinson.

Kate is on the payroll, a taxpayer, just another working girl carving out life in the marketplace. A source tells us that Kate’s duties involve meeting suppliers and “deciding which stock – such as socks, tights and hair slides – to buy”.

Kate is a, er, professional shopper. And she is not one bit like Alex Curran, lover to footballer Steven Gerrard, who with a kung-fu “Hiya!” gets readers ready to fight for that bargain in the sales.

Accordingly, Kate works four days a week and, in light of her endeavours, is now on a three week break.
