Being a princess definitely sounds like it would have its perks, but it's not all teas and tiaras. As the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton has dozens of royal duties and responsibilities, and it's her job to see to them all while appearing flawless and gracious. So, the royal life isn't all that it's cracked up to be, because these responsibilities sound like they can be more trouble than they are worth. How do you do it, Kate?


Whether she's visiting foreign lands or playing with Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, all eyes are on her. That's why even though she splits her time between a palace and a country estate, trading places with her probably wouldn't be as lovely as one might think. This is heartbreaking to hear, we know. 

Her calendar stays full pretty much all year round, and we're wondering when the hell does she ever get a break?? Everyone deserves a little "me" time, and we know that being a duchess probably doesn't allow for much downtime -- if any at all. 

So, the next time you find yourself wishing that you were in Kate Middleton's shoes, you might want to think again. Sure, she has the title and status, but poor Kate has very little time to herself. The following are things we don't envy about Kate Middleton's life.
