An author's attack on Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge has sparked a discussion on the Princess' personality.
Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge

Author Hilary Mantel (60) launched a personal attack on Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, describing her as a “shop-window mannequin with no personality of her own” in a lecture at the British Museum.

Her tirade continued with other insults, including:

  • She has a “plastic smile”

  • Anne Boleyn and Princess Diana had far more personality

  • She’s a “machine-made” princess “designed by committee.”

What do you think? Is Kate perfect or plastic?
