BBC Legend: Kate is Very Jane Austen

More abuse for Kate

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."
