Kate Middleton Gives First Public Speech, Is Human

Last week, we heard the Duchess of Cambridge utter a few words, and it was good. Now, we get to hear her deliver her first official speech as a royal, and it is even better.

Kate made the speech at The Treehouse, a children’s hospice southeast England. She spoke slowly and deliberately in what was clearly a very well-rehearsed speech, although one that she apparently wrote on her own. Someone obviously told the Duchess to talk slowly, and pause a lot, which she did, and I don’t know, it just kind of warms my heart how hard she’s clearly trying and how much work she obviously put in to doing a good job on this speech. So, you know, happy warm fuzzy internet day.

    This makes me cringe. It reminds me of my public speaking class in college. The pausing, flipping the hair, looking at notes. I know how you feel Kate.

    This speech really makes me wonder about whether she had elocution lessons. Her voice is a little too perfect.
