Kate Middleton aced her first (and second) royal engagements this week. Did anyone think she wouldn't? She has had years to think about being a princess and years to study. Kate, a level headed brunette, has studied photos and film from past royal engagements. Including appearances of Lady Diana. To further ensure her success, Kate has been assigned a tutor for all things "Princess."
For her first outing, Kate and the proud Prince William appeared in their hometown of Anglsley to christen a lifeboat. Kate wore a beige coat, circa 2004, which had been recently re-hemmed to a more youthful length. The Welsh people are hardscrabble folk. It takes a lot of gumption to live in that windblown salt sprayed spot of land. Kate showed her resourcefulness by "making do" with her old coat. With this act, she became one of the locals.. not any better than they are but ONE of them. Then, she sang the Welsh National Anthem with gusto. With a nod to the Royal Family (particularly her father in law to be), she wore a fascinator in her hair containing a brass button moulded with the Prince of Wales feathers.
