I had a dream last night about the Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge. (Of course I did.)
I was talking on the phone to the Duke and apparently I was interviewing him?
I asked Will why it is that when his wife was his fiance, she went by, “Kate” and now that she’s a duchess/Duchess she goes by “Catherine”.
I feel that Catherine is a lovely name, however, I feel that Kate is more approachable.
And then I asked him to elaborate on the decision making process regarding the spelling of Catherine versus Kate.
I would prefer that the first letter of her given name be used in her nickname: Catherine should be Cate, not Kate. I just don’t like it.
But then Will reminded me that men with the first name “Robert” oftentimes go by “Bob.”
He had a point…
We agreed to disagree.
P.S. I’d like to recognize Kate for re-wearing dresses and various other pieces in her wardrobe. I like that about her. Thanks for not being stuffy. Way to keep it real, Duchess.
