PRINCESS DIARIES

Palace to Give Kate Middleton Lessons

Think Julie Andrews will take part? Royal sources told Britain’s daily Telegraph that Prince William’s wife, Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge, will undergo private lessons on the workings of the state establishment. These tightly structured meetings are a stark contrast to the experience William’s mother, Princess Diana, went through 30 years ago when she married into the royal family. While Kate has had only one public engagement since the couple returned from North America in July, she has been kept busy behind the scenes with tutorials to prepare her for everything the official life will throw at her in the decades to come. Catherine, 29, has been dividing her time between London and the couple’s home in Wales.
