I was browsing through Kate's style thread and as I was looking at the pictures of her with the children doing art in LA a thought popped into my head: "what a farce". What a farce that she's being paraded around like some person of high regard and esteem. What's she done with her life other than get married to a very privileged man? Is she supposed to inspire people? Inspire them to do what exactly? Adhere to an out of date social model? To have wealthy parents? To wait around for someone to marry you?

Is it true the Queen really hated the display?

^^ Apparently when she saw the dress displayed on the headless mannequin she said it was "Horrid, isn't it? Horrid and dreadful!". I think she just found it a bit creepy perhaps.

When I saw the video of her saying that, she sounded sarcastic

^ Sounded pretty insensitive to Kate- I wouldn't be surprised if that hurt her feelings- young brides are very sensitive about anything involving their wedding...

Didn't Kate joke with the Queen, and said it looked 3D? I don't think Kate was hurt by it, the Queen just thought it looked odd without a head.

^ She was. After Queen Liz expressed her strong disapproval of the display, Catherine was quite upset and disappointed. I read somewhere that Catherine looked "sallow" afterwards and had to fake agreeing with the Queen. But it was because the display was bad, not the dress itself. I guess Queen Liz is a tough critic.

from the video I saw she looked like she was agreeing with Kate....that it looked bizarre without her head and body...
the video is here for anyone who hasn't seen it:

^^ That video of them together is cute I agree that it looks like Kate saying it looks strange and then the Queen agrees with her.
