Please don’t compare me with Diana, pleads Kate
Daily Express Weekend
14 May 2006

By Bill Coles Camilla Tominey


PRINCE William’s girlfriend Kate Middleton has hit back at attempts to compare her to his late mother, insisting: “I am no Princess Diana”.


The 24-year- old, worried that she is being pigeon-holed as the new “Princess of Hearts”, has told friends that while she has the utmost admiration for William’s mother, she does not want to be compared to her.







One friend told the Sunday Express: “People are already making that connection, but it’s not right. Diana was a wonderful person. She did a lot of work for good causes. But Kate wants to go her own way. She does not want to feel that she has to live up to standards set by Diana.”


Kate has been dating Prince William since they met at St Andrews University anda-half years ago. She never knew Princess Diana, who died in a Paris car crash in 1997.


Although some comparisons can be drawn between Kate and Diana, the two are very different.


The friend said: “Kate, like Diana, is a very beautiful woman. She is a photographer’s dream. Like Diana, she loves William and wants the best for him. But that’s where the comparisons end. Kate is concerned that she will not be shoe-horned into behaving or being like Diana.”



SMART MOVE: Elegant Kate is proving both as fashionconscious and caring as Diana, but she is determined that any comparison to her boyfriend William’s mother should stop there – and so are Palace advisers


Kate – called Catherine by her family – was recently photographed on holiday with William in the Caribbean island of Mustique. In her skimpy bikini, she looked toned and natural. But she did not have the body of a woman who spends hours in the gym. The source said: “Kate understands that some people will naturally make the comparison between her and Diana.


“She may well do some work for charities. She may one day decide that she wants a perfectly honed body and needs to work out every day in the gym. She may even choose to take up one of the many offers to appear on the front of the glossy magazines.


“But for the moment she just wants the freedom to live her own life, without feeling pressured to take on the role of Diana. She respects Diana and everything she did. But Kate just wants to be Kate. She wants to do things her own way.” While Diana set up picture opportunities and had regular off-therecord chats with journalists, Kate has adopted a strict “say nothing” approach and has several times instructed her lawyers to warn the press against invading her privacy.


Buckingham Palace is determined not to repeat the same mistakes that occurred with Princess Diana and the Duchess of York, both of whom felt snubbed by the Royals.


A Palace source revealed: “We are keen that Kate is made to feel that she’s being welcomed. It would be fair to say that neither Princess Diana nor the Duchess of York’s introduction to the Royal Family went smoothly. The transition was not handled well. All I can say is that lessons have been learned. This comes right from the top.”


Kate looked every inch a part of “the firm” when she accompanied Princes William and Harry to the wedding of Camilla’s daughter Laura Parker Bowles last Saturday.

Although she had gone to a great deal of effort with her outfit – an elegant gold brocade coat with matching high heels and feathered headdress – she did not linger for photographers for fear of upstaging the bride, preferring to hurry into the church.

I don't think she is at all even a smidgeon like Diana. The late Diana was a person that wont' be seen often in life. She's like once in a lifetime jewel that one gets to see! Rare indeed!

I agree Kate is nothing like Diana and should not be compared to her. Diana was a once in a lifetime person and she was very special.

We don't even know what Kate is like .... YET. I don't want her to replace Diana and certainly, she feel the same. She was not trying to insult her boyfriend's mother but she was being honest and I admire her for that. She knows she will never be like Diana.
