Kate Middleton's performance gets the description as "faultless" during her first year of royal life and the person who's made this comment is in a place to judge this. The former Prime Minister, Sir John Major, who held the title of Guardian ad Litem to young Prince William and Prince Harry after Diana's death, is a family insider. His comments on Kate come after seeing her from a different seat in the world audience for the last year.
While Kate is wonderful and a breath of fresh air to the public, a "faultless" performance is something someone might say about the late Mother Theresa. To go about an entire year without faults seems too saintly even for Kate. It's human to have some faults and while Sir John probably meant that Kate wasn't the object of criticism in the media for something she did wrong for her entire first year, she most certainly had some faults in a year's time, didn't she?
Even when Kate showed the first sign of something that would tarnish her "faultless" record, it's turned around in the media. When she first stepped out in a recycled outfit, one seen on her before, the media was quick to jump on this. Instead of turning it into a fashion disaster for the future Queen, she was held in high regard for being budget minded. The media won't let Kate have faults, this is how much they've taken to her.
Major has always seen the Queen's humor and humanity, but the rest of the world is getting a look at it today as she takes Kate under her wing. The Queen's built a "good relationship" with her new granddaughter-in-law and is responsible for helping Kate integrate seamlessly into her new royal place in life, according to The Telegraph.
Sir John sees Kate as a "natural" and she's done well with her new place on the world stage where every move she makes gets recorded and every piece of clothing she wears is subject to comment. He is also proud of the man who William's become, who is often on the back burner in the media because of his wife's popularity. William's grown into a man who the public relates to and the last year's been a wonderful time in history for the royals in the public eye.
Kate is as close to "faultless" in the public eye as a celebrity can get, but somewhere somehow there's surely one little mistake that she's made that the public is unaware of. While Kate's loved for the goodness she emanates, you don't want to see her become so good that she's eventually held on a higher plane than the rest of the population.
Kate's just softening the royal-commoner barrier today for her tendency to incorporate her commoner ways with her royal expectations, but you don't want this to go too far where she's eventually considered saintly. If that happens, no one could relate to that state of grace!
