Kate Middleton changed her lifestyle due to the queen's injured comments

By Marie Claire

Close your eyes and imagine the personification of "royal grace and refinement". Did you introduce yourself to Kate Middleton? Because that would be completely fair. The Duchess of Cambridge is in many ways the epitome of the royal ideal. While Prince Harry and Meghan Markle hold hands in public like pagans, Kate and her love, Prince William, are a pretty regal classic when it comes to decor and rule-following.

Oh, and she found it somehow lazy and unhappy that Kate did not have a full-time job after college. According to Nicholl, the queen, who despite her age was still one of the "hardest-working royals," felt "the fact that" a future member of the family was unacceptable without a full-time job. "

YIKES. Has anyone else rolled into fetal position for Kate? To formulate the immortal words of Cher Horowitz: "Hart, Liz."

Kate was reportedly very hurt by the comments (which, duh), but was advised to "keep her tongue" because talking to the future mother-in-law is never a great plan, but it's even worse if she's the queen from England is and has to legally tell who is marrying your fiancee.

Obviously, the Queen thought Kate and her love of lavish holidays for the royal family a bad remedy, given the state of the British economy at the time.

How have Kate and the Queen resolved the gap in their relationship? Obviously, the queen quietly suggested that Kate start working with a charity and the future Duchess of Cambridge took the uh advice to heart. She promptly got involved with Starlight, a charity working with critically ill and terminally ill children, and this seemed to do the trick, since Kate and the Queen are all "feud-what a feud?"
