“As a child of parents, who run their own bussines I feel quite offended, when people say it is not a job, when Catherine worked in family company. I have helped mi parents at summer since I was 15 and the only unusually easy thing was to get this job. Everything else was with no ease. So, what is wrong about it?” - Submitted by littlebatincave
“I hate reading all those confessions slamming Kate for working for her parents. I work for my parents because, like the Middletons, they run a family business and want to give their children experience and opportunity rather than to a stranger they don’t trust. Many families do. No, I don’t intend on working for them forever. I’ll eventually move on, just as my brother before me did and, I’m sure, my brother after me will. You don’t know what Kate’s intentions were after her twenties.” - Submitted by Anonymous
“As much as I’d like to hold Kate’s job with her parents against her, I really can’t. If I had a stable job available to me with people who would never fire me, I can’t say I wouldn’t take it. I hold nothing against her for working for her parents. Lots of people do. It’s completely normal.” — Submitted by Anonymous
Okay, here's what I'm wondering about Kate/Party Pieces...
When Kate worked for Party Pieces, what were her responsibilities? Is she credited on their website or in their print materials? Did clients and suppliers ever get calls from her? Did she take meetings with her parents? Like if Carole had a meeting, would Kate be there with her asking questions and keeping track of things? I work for my mom, and when she does a show, I’m there all day keeping track of things and making sure her orders are carried out. Do any former Party Pieces employees remember receiving orders from Kate, or working along side her? Maybe she worked online, but I’ve never heard of her having computer skills. Also, why did she major in art history and not business, or marketing, or web design, or any kind of graphic design or merchandising? I understad it may not have been her plan from the beginning to work at Party Pieces, but let’s not pretend she was intending to be an art history professor or work as an art dealer or at a musuem, because that just doesn’t make sense with what we’ve seen. I don’t remember her ever showing any interest in art.
I understand the issue of her not being seen much at the headquarters, but were her parents there most days? Maybe she was with Mike and Carole, taking meetings with them and helping with shipping.
Those skeptical of Kate seem to act like she had no job at all, whereas her fans act like she had responsibilities and did a lot to support her family’s business.
Well here is lady Crocodile. Sorry for the dress but a black dress would have been quite…idk flat. So I choose a rich wine dress. I hope it is still good. It is for the after party of the rain dinner event of myopicbloom.
