The Princess and the Author

I just wanted to put my two cents in about Hilary Mantel’s comments about the Duchess of Cambridge.

I agree with Mantel that Kate looks like a shop-window mannequin, a machine made princess with a perfect plastic smile, but part of me thinks that she is that way because of the sometimes schizophrenic media attention she can receive.

I like to think that it is some kind of defence mechanism; “perfect” and smiley on the outside whilst inside she just wants to hide away or punch someone in the face.

Don’t all people in the spotlight have a public persona and a private one?
