Columnist Linda Kelsey of The Daily Mail wrote a rather snarky article questioning Carole Middleton’s choice of wardrobe for Saturday’s Starlight Charity event. Considering that Kate wore a long, gunmetal grey Issa frock alongside her mum’s short, coral one-shoulder dress, some people are suggesting that mother and daughter should have swapped gowns. Despite Carole’s figure and killer legs, did she commit another faux pas in the eyes of the press?

I’m personally tired of the Middleton bullying. Carole, of all, seems like the easy target. Along with her gum-chewing incident at William’s Sandhurst Graduation and less-than-appropriate choice of words, she’s been labeled as the desperate social-climber who’d do anything to see her daughter become a princess. Is she really? I see nothing but a supportive mother who had the ingenuity and courage to give her family a better life. From flight attendant to multi-millionaire, she’s uplifted the family status. Sure, she may not be the perfect mother to the future Queen. Yes, she uses words like “toilet” and “pleased to meet you.” And dear me, she crosses her legs in public and sometimes dresses a bit young for her age. But is she tasteless? Rude? Chavvy? I don’t think so. Has she done anything to hurt the public? Not at all. So why insist on finding the littlest bit of imperfection? How sad that some people find such fulfillment in ridiculing others.
