Middletons affluent parents who sent her to private school and live in a five-bedroomed house in Berkshire are about to rake in a significant fortune on the back of the royal wedding having set up a mail order party supplies company which will benifit hugely from the public wedding fever and street parties that will follow.
Royal biographer Robert Lacey said Prince Charles had always felt he was rushed into his ill-fated marriage to Diana and did not want his eldest son, now 24, to suffer the same fate.
"This has been a long courtship, but that seems increasingly to be the royal style," he told Reuters. "Kate is a good, solid, middle-class girl and there is every chance we are going to have our first middle-class queen since Anne Boleyn -- but maybe that is not such a good precedent."
Anne Boleyn was the second wife of King Henry VIII. He accused her of treason and had her beheaded in the Tower of London in 1536. More of it we say. Hang the lot of them.
