Kate Middleton could have hardly suspected that when she married into the royal family that she would become the tabloid darling that she has become. Then again the signs were there for the taking, she was well spoken, supposedly came from good stock, was well regarded by a genteel crowd and very easy on the eye and she was of course marrying Prince William who had the awful legacy of dealing with the fact that his mother, Princess Di had lost her life to the ever growing glare of the media. Literally.

With the publication of what many consider to be scandalous images of her (although one could just as easily argue the images are quite natural and befitting of any young woman spending time with her husband on summer vacation) the Duchess of Cambridge in a matter of days has gone from an object of affection and curiosity to an object of ogling. Or to be crude an object of sexual vilification.

Across the web, commentators have taken her to task for having too small breasts (must we really?) for being too stupid for having disrobed given her title and the ever glaring opportunistic behavior of paparazzi to that of a dimwit who was simply too presumptuous to think she could behave otherwise and on some level not deserving of our respect because she chose to reveal herself. But then again isn’t this what most of us do on any given day and here is Kate Middleton being crucified for playing into her nature.

Going against her has been the less than stellar behavior of her brother in law, Prince Harrywho has fed the paparazzi’s appetite and that of her sister Pippa Middleton who has been often criticized for being nothing more than an opportunistic floozy. Then of course there were those images of her brother, James last year parading around half naked too that had the royal family wondering who exactly their William was marrying.

In many ways the royals are like any family, they have their own aspirations, concerns, foibles and day to day tribulations except theirs are magnified ten fold especially as the public crave more and more information and titillation with respect to their affairs.

It is not to say that the royal family is not to be taken seriously but one does wonder to what degree given the unspoken polarization of society of the haves and have nots and the increasing social injustices that continue to exist that on some level the subtext for the royal family has become one that somehow perhaps they are to be taken less seriously and to be examined for whether the actual existence of a monarchy ought to still exist. Then again the media takes delight in such characters as their tribulations and affairs inspire imagination and of course constant gossip for the slightest misbehavior, actual or perceived.

At present the only option for Kate Middleton is to retain her poise and grace and to not publicly show any despair of the matter at hand, of course should she in the future make another unforced error or be found to be in a less than stellar predicament the public courtesy of the media will suddenly wonder out aloud who it is that they have been idealizing. Then again that may be a good thing as one can suspect that Kate Middleton wouldn’t mind a break from all the constant attention she is given as she is made into our collective fairy tale story.  Yet even some fairy tale stories come with unhappy endings, case in point Lady Di….

  1. I am with you on this totally. I have read a few other articles of his/her and I have very much come to the conclusion that this person truly believes that because the press has freedom of the press law that it truly means they can just print anything. The photo of where the photographer was to take the photo showed the house so way off in the distance that its a tiny little house in the far off distance at least miles away and no way can they say that they saw her and stopped to take her photo. I wonder if they some how followed them and just waited there the entire time waiting for the opportunity. That is I believe being a stalker. Have no one learned anything about Princess Diana’s death or not? To me the world to to over exposed to sex. What I don’t understand is that this is published on the front of these magazines that you would see in a checkout line at the store where a child whose say 5 or 8 could see.
    What I was wondering about is how come a magazine can publish something like this that isn’t news in anyway without the written consent of the people involved. Unlike a video where they would have to block out the persons face if they didn’t give their consent. Why is it different. Its not like they were breaking any laws or rules. Not like they were cheating. How can they justify the reason that the public needs to see this? Now things like this would only be seen in magazines like playboy but not anymore. What it came down to was the fact that people were going to buy the magazines and make themselves a lot of money.
    I just hope they find out who the photographers is and they charge that person as harshly as they can within the law

  2. The write of this article –you are an ass and you obvioulsy are very anal. You mention nothing about her right to privacy at all. No matter who you are, an individual has a right to privacy. Every dam one of you are forgetting what this is actually all about- PRIVACY, not about why she took her top off. You actually believe the sick photographer who said you could see the balcony from the road and anyone could have gotten a picture, yes with a huge telescopic lense. The distance of the private estate from the road was a length of three football fields. Then you say Kate was prancing around topless on purpose. She has the right to do that. Have you never done anything stupid, oh excuse me you are perfect. You must do everything with your clothes on including taking a shower, etc and you must also think its right to be a peeping Tom and not face any consequences.
