Feminist writer Germaine Greer claims Britain’s Duchess Catherine has a “b*****d of a job” because she had been “put in charge of William”.
The 65-year-old Australian author also claimed the 32-year-old Duchess – who was known as Kate Middleton prior to her marriage to Prince William – is “not allowed to have an interest in modern culture”.
She told Newsweek: “She is made to appear absolutely anodyne. She cannot do or say anything spontaneous.
“She has learned what she has to do and say and how to do and say it in the approved way. Spontaneity will get her in trouble.”
Greer added: “Kate is not even allowed to decorate her own houses. Even the wives of the American presidents get to do that. The whole thing is a mad anachronism.
“The ‘firm’ tell us that the first born will now become the monarch regardless of sex. Well, big f****** deal!”
Duchess Catherine, who is currently pregnant with her second child, has been suffering with severe morning sickness over the last few weeks, which led to the last-minute decision to pull out of a planned trip to Malta earlier this month.
