There’s a new book out about the royal family called Gilded Youth: An Intimate History of Growing Up in the Royal Family by Tom Quinn. And let me tell you, it’s juicy!
Apparently, Kate Middleton is desperate to fit in with the fancy aristocrats and royals. Meanwhile, her hubby Prince William is a total hothead who loves to scream, punch walls, and rage. I mean, can you blame him? Dealing with palace aides all day long is like living in a Jane Austen novel. The drama is real, y’all!
But wait, it gets better. According to the book, William has some hilarious nicknames for his wifey. He calls her “Babykins,” “DoD” (short for “Duchess of Doolittle”), and even “darling” when he’s annoyed with her. And in return, Kate playfully calls him “baldy” because he fusses over her hair. You gotta love a couple with a good sense of humor, am I right?
And when it comes to their fights, of course they have them like any other couple. But Kate is the calm one who always pours oil on troubled waters. She’s basically a Buddhist monk in a tiara. William, on the other hand, has been through a lot of emotional turmoil in his life, so he hates confrontation. But that doesn’t stop him from throwing things at people during their terrible rows. Yikes!
Oh, and let’s not forget about the press. The book claims that the media treated Kate and Meghan Markle the same way. But come on, that’s like saying a penguin and a flamingo are the same because they’re both birds. Meghan faced racist attacks from the press, while Kate’s background as a stewardess’s daughter was criticized. And while Meghan rightfully spoke out against the unfair treatment, Kate kept her cool and ignored it. That’s some serious queen behavior right there.
But here’s the kicker: the book also reveals that Kate and William complained to the press about their coverage. So much for keeping calm and carrying on, huh? And don’t even get me started on Carole Middleton’s press leaks. It’s like the royal family is their own reality show, and we can’t get enough of the drama.
So there you have it, folks. The royal family is just like us, but with fancier titles and more throwing of objects. Cheers to Gilded Youth for giving us a glimpse into their world!
