Kate Middleton is the epitome of style, grace and poise by the standards of most, including the press, that fawns over her, while also often trashing the Duchess of Sussex. Meghan Markle has alleged that the treatment she gets is the result of racism, noting that once upon a time, when the media covered her sister-in-law in an unflattering way, it was simply rude (via Glamour).
Perhaps royal fans will remember years ago as the now-Princess of Wales was allegedly pressuring William to get married. Then, the press hailed the Duchess of Cambridge and Cornwall as «Waity Katie.» But that’s not the only unflattering nickname that was once synonymous with the mom of three.
«Kate Middle Class» was also a popular way to refer to her, and Christina Oxenberg claims of how the royal family viewed the nickname, «They thought it was all very funny — Kate Middle Class» (via Page Six).
Adding they «meant no disrespect,» the royal cousin went on to share a likewise unflattering nickname that a very senior royal reportedly gave to Kate’s parents.
