I know we’re tiring slightly of Kate Middleton right now but according to a mother with not much to do apart from complain about our future Queen when she was a teenager it was “galling” to have her child at school with the Middletons.
Speaking to Tatler of Kate, Pippa and James Middleton’s time at Marlborough College, the anonymous parent said: “There was always something slightly galling about having your child at school with the Middletons. It made other families feel rather hopeless.”
She added that every item of the Middleton trio’s school uniform came equipped with a “beautifully sewn-in name tape… it was unthinkable that they would resort to a marker pen on labels” and she whinged about them having the best picnics on school sports day (who is this source?- Waynetta Slob?).
Catherine was a late bloomer at school and quite the frump who even once used nail varnish in lieu of eyeshadow nearly blinding herself ahead of a school dance .
Given that it’s a boarding school, it’s unlikely that other parents would be aware of their child’s classmates arrangements with regard to naming items of uniform and it’s fairly standard at British public schools to use sewn in name tapes in case items end up in lost property.
What this disgruntled mother meant to say was that it’s “fairly galling” that her child didn’t go on to marry Prince William…
