In order to get her ready for her new job as A Royal, Catherine Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, is literally getting lessons in how to be a princess. According to the U.K.’s Telegraph:
In recent weeks experts on government, the arts and the media have been asked to visit St James’s Palace to give the Duchess one-to-one tutorials to ensure she has a thorough knowledge of the Establishment…
A Royal source said: “The Duchess is being briefed on how the State works, getting to know our national institutions better and learning more about organisations such as the arts, the media and the government.
“It is a process that will carry on for several months but is being done privately.
It sounds a little but like graduate school, only free, one-on-one, and not quite as topic-specific. And while it seems like a lot of pressure to have to understand The Establishment (and also like a weird term to use), it also seems kind of awesome to have it be your job to just learn shit. One of the perks of Catherine’s new life.
