Kate Middleton Is A Gold Digger? Chinese Tourism Video Insults The Duchess Of Cambridge
Is Kate Middleton a gold digger? According to a new Chinese tourism video the Duchess of Cambridge only became a part of the royal family for the benefits.
The video, which was created by the Chengdu Association for Cultural Exchange with Foreign Countries to promote tourism and “Panda Cabs” in the city Chengdu, shows Kate, Prince William, and Queen Elizabeth II (played by Colette Mularkey, Simon Watkinson, and Amanda Bellamy) standing out in the rain in London. William and Queen Elizabeth are trying to hail a cab while gold digger Kate Middleton complains that she didn’t marry into the royal family to be taking taxi cabs.
“I just don’t understand why we cannot take the royal limo. I didn’t marry into royalty to schlep around in a taxi.”
“But darling, granny is right. The commoners want to see us tightening our belts and all that.”
But Kate insists:
“Rubbish, people want to see that they can be like us if they just work hard.”
Which draws a mocking insult from the queen: ”Like you did?”
And in case you had any doubts about what the video was trying to portray, Middleton adds: “That’s right, I didn’t even fancy him at first. Don’t you remember? You had to practically beg me for my phone number.”
Several people criticized the ad for painting Kate Middleton as a gold digger but a spokesman for the Chengdu Association called the ad “harmless fun.” Still, the original video on Youtube has been removed (or at least set to private). Here’s a copy uploaded by World Viral News. But don’t be surprised if it gets taken down.
Do you think Kate Middleton’s a gold digger? If you do, she may shed that image when she sleeps on the streets of London later this summer during a “sleep out” for charity.
