    I thought it was a Walmart vest for a moment.

    I like her outfit but I would like the jacket to be black if I had it.

    Wow, didn't take long after the holiday! Wonder if everyone else in that family is coming.

    Are the Middletons wealthy enough to be part of the idle rich because it's not clear to me what Kate did for a living before she got married (nothing, right?) or what Pippa does now.

    Pippa sure doesn't dress like she's rich. That outfit and her eyebrows are atrocious.

    When Prince William applied to Art History at St. Andrews University, I remember news outlets reporting that applications to art history jumped up 44%, mostly by females. She was one of them. Prince William effect boosts applications to St Andrews | Education | The Guardian

    Then he saw her modelling in a school fashion show and wanted to meet her. They dated for three years and were getting quite serious, all the while the Queen was quite outspoken in her distaste for Kate, calling her lazy (the only job she'd ever had was working for her parents' party supply business). Then Kate got a part-time job as an accessories buyer at a women's store chain for a few months (perhaps to pacify the Queen?) then quit after a few months. Kate Middleton lands job with fashion chain Jigsaw | Daily Mail Online

    Oh yes, I can deffo see the relationship between studying in art history and buying accessories for a retail chain--not.

    So to answer your question, did she ever have a real job? I think not. Did she play her cards right to meet Prince William and become future Queen of England, oh definitely.

    She gunned at the chance of being the next Queen of England and was successful.

    Very contrived and she succeeded. Good for her.

    James is the handsomest Middleton and Pippa is still a dog.

    I really like her, and her brother looks identical to a long-term coworker of mine.

    I got a positive vibe off Pippa when she was on the today show a while back. She was cheerful and a LOT more relaxed than Kate. Could be in part because she talked normally and didn't strain herself to sound all "posh" like her sister. My mother was of English theritage and I can spot most who do that.

    William made the mistake of announcing his uni choice before taking his "gap year" after school so the social mountaineering mothers of Britain had plenty of time to enrol their daughters at the same place.

    His jacket is so bad.
