The (Maybe) Princess and the Metaphor

I never thought I would care anything about the British royal family one way or another, but I’m actually starting to feel sorry for the woman who attracts this sort of press coverage:

Kate, as she is fast becoming known by the English (actress Kate Winslet and model Kate Moss are still two-namers), is a middle-class descendant of a coal-mining family, with an art history degree and conservative hemlines.

She is as English as thickly buttered toast, and roughly as controversial. Her courtship with William is chronicled by the press the way lions chronicle antelopes.

I think it’s that metaphor what did it.

And I imagine that I’ll get over it.
