Just as the Hilary Mantel row appeared to be subsiding, more abuse for Kate Middleton, this time from the celebrated BBC wit Sandi Toksvig:

"Kate Middleton is not enough for me," she tells the Observer, "We used to admire women who got their place in life through marriage and having children, but I like to think we've grown up a bit. I can't think of a single opinion she holds – it's very Jane Austen."
