Kate Middleton - the Future Queen of United Kingdom?

Sunday, 17 October 2010

Kate MiddletonIt's not easy being a public person, with your every step, gesture and breath carefully watched and captured by dozens of cameras. That's the price you have to pay for success, wealth and fame. However, it's not the same if you have to pay with your own privacy for somebody else's success, when you have no choice but tolerate the public scrutiny knowing that it's not you everybody's interested in. Moreover, you get absolutely no credit for anything and your celebrity partner always steals the scene, and your every faux pas is noticed and cherished by the public for years to come and brought forward whenever your name comes up. Now you see the «perks» of being with somebody famous. That's the situation Kate Middleton, the girlfriend of Prince William of Wales, second in line to the British throne, has to face on the regular basis.

Still, don't bother to be sorry for poor media-haunted Kate. It's not so bad being Kate Middleton after all. Catherine Elizabeth Middleton was born on 9 January, 1982 in Reading, into a middle class family, her father an airline pilot, and mother - an air stewardess. As a child she demonstrated the calm competence and strength of character which would serve her so well in the future, with childhood friends describing her as a kind-hearted and sensible soul who rarely caused upset among her peers. In 1987, the Middletons founded their own company, Party Pieces, a mail order firm that sells party supplies and decorations. They have since become millionaires and could afford an appropriate education for Kate and her two siblings: after attending Marlborough College she went to the prestigious University of St Andrews in 2001.

Signing up for a degree in History of Art at St Andrews brought her into the orbit of William Arthur Philip Louis Windsor, Britain's future king. As housemates sharing a cottage in the Scottish town, Kate and the Prince fell for each other in 2002, and embarked on a romance that became a source of intense media interest across the world. At St Andrews the two were protected from tabloid scrutiny by a gentleman's agreement between newspaper editors and the royal household. The slender brunette, who did well in both her school and university exams, would have been all too aware the bubble of privacy would burst as soon as they graduated, however.

University over, the two moved to London where they found themselves facing new challenges. Kate set up home in the capital and accepted a position as a junior buyer with High Street fashion chain Jigsaw. Her statuesque beau meanwhile threw himself into the rigors of military training.

While her sudden celebrity can't have been easy for the young graduate, she handled herself with poise and dignity.  The romance between the middle class lass and her blue blooded beau went from strength to strength, with Kate joining William, along with his father and brother, on several skiing holidays. She was also presented to the Queen, who was said to be much taken her grandson's choice of partner.

In February 2006, it was announced that Middleton would receive her own 24-hour security detail supplied by the Royalty and Diplomatic Protection Department. This fueled further speculation that she and Prince William would soon be engaged, since she would not, otherwise, be entitled to this service. It came as a shock to royal watchers, therefore, to discover on April 14 that the pair had called time on the romance and were to go their own ways.

The separation didn't last long, however. By June there was speculation they'd rekindled their romance. And this seemed to be confirmed when in July Kate, accompanied by her mum, attended the Concert For Diana at Wembley Stadium - although the couple sat two rows apart and insisted they were «just good friends».

With reports they'd decided to give their romance a second chance filling the papers, Kate and her royal beau were careful to conduct their relationship out of the limelight, and were rarely seen out clubbing together at their old haunts.

In late 2007, Kate resigned from her job at Jigsaw and later went on to take up a production post with her parent's firm. Working for mum and dad meant she was able to take time out to join the Prince on foreign holidays, support him on the sidelines at polo matches and attend family events as their relationship once again grew in strength. In June 2008, Middleton attended the event of William's investiture into the Order of the Garter along with the Royal Family.

Meanwhile, despite the broad media coverage, Kate Middleton remains an obscure figure known for little beside her royal connection. On numerous occasions Kate has demonstrated her intelligence and wisdom, she carefully thought out her line of conduct and has not been implicated in any scandals so far.

Kate Middleton is also known for her fashion sense and understated elegant style which has earned her a comparison to late Princess Diana. Middleton has been featured in numerous best dressed lists. Tatler placed her at #8 on their yearly listing of the top ten style icons in 2007. She was named as one of Richard Blackwell's ten «Fabulous Fashion Independents» of 2007. In July 2008 Kate was named to Vanity Fair's international best dressed list.

No one can predict the future, but so far all indications are that Prince William made the right choice with Kate Middleton.

She won't be Queen of England, because there is no such position. She would become queen of the United Kingdom. There has been no Queen of England since the Act of Union in 1707, which merged the thrones of England and Scotland.
