The Duchess of Cambridge is, by all accounts, a perfectly lovely individual. She has style, grace, poise, and everything else a member of the royal family ought to have. She does, however, have a tendency to, shall we say, bend the rules a bit. Having married into such a public and proper family, Kate has to deal with a certain number of expectations being placed on her at all times. Expectations, it seems, that Her Majesty the Queen may not feel are being met. Here are the top twenty seemingly inconsequential things Kate Middleton does that probably upset her royal grandmother-in-law.
The Topless Photos
There would obviously be controversy surrounding any member even remotely connected with the royal family if photos with any amount of nudity are involved. Kate’s topless photos, while intended innocently enough, must have angered Her Majesty in monumental ways.
The Queen, always poised and proper, has a very simple and traditional take on fashion. It is for this reason that Kate Middleton’s love for wedge heels must be incredibly annoying to her royal grandmother-in-law. A pair of pumps would kill you, Kate?
Kate reportedly spent over one million dollars renovating her Kensington estate with hubby Prince William. Such an extravagance seemed horribly unnecessary and exorbitant to the ever so thrifty and economically conscious Queen of England.
The Royal Duties
Overcome with severe bouts of morning sickness during her first pregnancy, Kate elected to stay in bed rather than perform royal duties as expected. Apparently, this caused some tension with the Queen who told her to deal with it and do her duty.
