Kate Middleton news: How livid Duchess fumed at William – ‘Stop behaving like this!’ | Royal | News

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William are now the proud parents of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have steadily gained a reputation for their dedication to senior royal duties and effortless ability to project a regal image. However, in the early days of their  romance it was Kate who showed royal judgement over appropriate behaviour, and even gave the prince a telling-off.

Author and broadcaster Vicky Ward, writing in Vanity Fair in 2008, took a look at the episode.

Ms Ward writes: ”Interestingly, of the tight-knit royal clique who hit the clubs with increasing regularity, perhaps the most aware of the bad impression they were creating was Middleton. 

“On vacation in 2006, Prince William and Guy Pelly, an old friend in the group, often referred to as the ‘court jester,’ were careening around on mopeds in front of a rented house in Ibiza. 

“According to a source, Middleton came out of the house and, matron-like, told them to stop.

She writes:  “There are plenty of snobbish insults from people who, despite Middleton’s obvious attributes, believe that the monarchy needs to stop marrying ‘out’ of its class.

“One member of the young polo-playing set in the county of Gloucestershire – known in the British media as the ‘Glossy Posse’ – noted, ‘Her parents have a tarmac drive, for God’s sake.’” 

Some believe Tarmac is seen to be a particularly “new-money” option for paving, as opposed to gravel or a country track. 

Ms Ward continues: “One likened her and her younger sister, Pippa, 25, to the Bouvier sisters, with their obvious desire to ‘marry well.'”

Biographer Andrew Morton, in his 2011 book “William and Catherine”, also writes about some vicious sniping from the prince’s circle.

Mr Morton writes: “Kate would have sensed reservations about her in certain quarters.

“While she was seen as a ’pretty and sensible’ girl, there were those in royal and aristocratic circles who believed that the Middletons were too middle-of-the-road for the House of Windsor.”

A Scottish nobleman told Mr Morton: “It was felt that she wasn’t from the right stock.

“William was expected to find a suitable bride among the aristocracy or European royalty – one of his own kind.

“Kate was treated abominably behind her back by some who should have shown better manners.”
