Kate’s New Job: Shilling for the Royals
The unveiling of the “official” website of the royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton ushers in a new era of accessibility for the British royal family. Diane Clehane, Lookonline’s entertainment editor and author of the best-seller, Diana The Secrets of Her Style, argues that rather than enhance Kate’s glamour, the move diminishes her celebrity. Given their well-known disdain for the press, the royals’ blatant attempt to create a newly minted fashion and media star seems quite curious — and, reports Diane, ill-advised. Read Diane’s take on what happens now that the royals have gone viral with Diana’s playbook.
Back in the day, the royals — at least the Queen and Prince Charles — resented the publicity Diana got and many of the “men in grey” found it unseemly. Today, the Queen isn’t just taking a page of out the People’s Princess’ playbook; she’s going viral with it!
The royal couple looked very sweet and deeply in love with each other during their wedding ceremony. They should serve as an inspiration to many people especially to all the couples around the world.
