Love her, hate her, but you can’t ignore her. Her shiny locks and pleasant smile have become a media fixture since her dating and courtship days. And finally, with a fairy tale wedding like none other, she does what she’s best at: taking the world by storm.
British labels, high street bargain buys, blow dried perfection and that cherubic prince and beyond cute princess to complete the family picture: to the by stander, the Duchess of Cambridge aka Kate Middleton has it all. And now, they have just arrived in Canada for a tour!
The Kate Middleton fixation is a distant beagul that cries out to a dream we all harbour close to our hearts. The commoner turned Princess is a story that wins each and every time. There have been critics of this theory who have called the Duchess plain boring and even an opportunist who has struck gold. But the truth is, she has made the most of her situation by being patient and holding on to a window that helped her escape the mundane. Anything wrong with that?
Lots, apparently. From repeating clothes, to not putting enough appearances as a working royal: she has been accused of things that are so trivial when you look at the big picture. Not only has she taken the time to be a normal wife (who shops and cooks meals) and a mother, she has also set an example in reverse snobbery with simple measures like repeating clothes. So it all depends on how you look at it!
Kate Middleton has become an expression in popular culture for one simple reason: her simplicity. She has kept things simple and won hearts where it matters. The rest of the world? She smiles them away as she walks with her head held high. If you look at the HRH style, one thing is clear: classic is always in. She stays loyal to British brands even as she tried out an exotic pattern or two once in a while, like she did on her trip to India. But more or less, you will find her in royally yours gear – complete with knee length hemlines and sensible yet classy shoes. Not one for too much of experimentation, her message to the world is clear: wife, mother and working royal first – fashionista…well, if you must insist!
