Kate Middleton Is Failing as a Royal in One Very Important Way

Kate Middleton has been Royal for three years now, but you'd think she just started the job yesterday. The reason? She's lacking in one very important area when it comes to her official duties. While she's created a lot of buzz with her style, the royal birth last year, and the trips she takes with Prince William, you really don't hear much about her passions, her causes, or her efforts to make a world a better place.

But when it comes to being the next great princess, the Duchess might want to take a cue from the late Princess Diana.

While Lady Di's charitable work was well-documented in the media, it seems as though Kate Middleton’s causes are taking a back seat to more frivolous headlines. But this isn't totally her fault, of course, as her fans are the ones causing mass hysteria over her latest Jenny Packham dresses. Still, it's more like "much ado about nothing" when it comes to the Duchess and her charities.

Most recently, Middleton visited the Blessed Sacrament School in north London to meet with project coordinators and teachers before joining in on a private counseling session. But do we know what her opinions are on the matter? Not really. For some though, it seems like Middleton isn’t putting much effort into her charity work. Rarely do we hear her speak about it, and when she does, it usually takes a back seat to her “What She Wore” headlines. In comparison, there is no doubt in anyone’s mind that Princess Diana was extremely passionate about her causes. She spoke volumes when it came to AIDS awareness, and even though Diana could have quit her charitable work after she divorced Prince Charles, she embraced them further with a renewed passion.

Princess Diana’s support for AIDS victims and sufferers along with speeches about anti-landmine awareness was one of the greatest legacies she left behind. I mean, there’s a good reason why she was named the “Princess of Hearts,” right? So far, Kate Middleton isn’t convincing us that she’s doing any of the same. Girlfriend needs to step up her game, big time.

Do you think Kate Middleton needs to work on better convincing us that she's passionate about her charitable causes?

waity... waitykate


Yes she's lazy. Waity Katie hardly bothers to do anything, and it's been what, almost four years ?   Diana did more in her first year as a royal and was always deeply involved in giving back. Despite raising two boys.  In the UK many refer to William and Kate as "Willnot and Cannot"....that is from the public, at their own so-called "royal" Willy and Waity.  Speaks volumes when their own countrymen label them like that.

I would say Waity Katie also fails at having the dignity and maturity she is expected to have. For years all the ridiculous dress in the wind incidents, going without panties.....it amazes me that Waity Kate is still allowed around other people's children with her nasty habits.  The exhibitionist is a bit too kinky to be around innocent children.  Back when they visited Calgary,Canada Kate flashed a child cancer victim right on the tarmac.  And there are always other children around when she has her "incidents".  Waity Katie needs a psychiatrist.  I agree, she's lazy and needs to do a lot more charity, but the way she likes to display her rear end in public seems like a more concerning issue.

It is time for the paparazzi to stop criticising the British Royal family, and let Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge concentrate initially on raising her family. Her Highness is doing a terrific job so leave her alone.

You can stop comparing her with Princess Diana - she is not Diana - she is her own person with a baby. Stop looking for dirt on her & other Royals. Look for the good & positive with them. It takes a big person to do that - it is easy to try to find dirt - be positive & look for the good. She is not perfect - NO ONE IS!

Helen Portelli

cant we all just let her be who she is without having to watch her every move the press hounded Diana t oh

Just let them be a family i say

er grave leave the young royals alone as history has a bad habit of repeating its self

Vikki Wall

Diana was slated as attention seeking for all the things for charities that she did, NOW Kate is being slated for not advertising her self as doing good things for charity, maybe she just doe things quietly. People will always find some thing to moan at about her, I remember people doing the same thing to Diana, neither of these wonderful ladies will ever be left in peace.

Leave her alone

Terri Maxfield

I think it is about time the people who run this site get real jobs

For gods sake, leave her alone. She's still adapting to her new life. She is a beautiful person inside and out, she is a doting mother and wife. Give her time to establish herself before you go to town and put her down.
