KATE Middleton has my sympathy.
Despite living in an unbearably bright spotlight, the future Queen has managed not to put a foot wrong since her wedding to Prince William 18 months ago. Many would have forgiven her needing an adjustment period after joining one of the most famous families in the world, but she fell straight into her new role like it was one she was born to play.
Which makes it all the more bitter that a French magazine thought it fair to obtain naked photos of the 31-year-old enjoying a private moment on a private holiday in a private house with her husband. There are those who call her naive, saying she should have known better. By that they mean she should assume she has no rights to privacy and that someone, somewhere out there will always be watching...
What a great way to send our future Queen insane.
