The Online Daily is reporting that thousands have come out in support of the Duchess of Cambridge after Hilary Mantel launched a scathing attack about her. The double Booker Prize winner, whose latest books are set in the Tudor court, dismissed Kate as a 'machine-made' princess, 'designed by committee'.
But where the author described her as 'plastic' and as a personality-free 'shop window mannequin' with a 'plastic smile', many have come out to say that the Duchess is a warm, intelligent woman.
She said Kate had gone from being a 'jointed doll on which certain rags are hung' to a woman whose 'only point and purpose' was to give birth, the paper reported.
Mantel said Kate 'appeared to have been designed by a committee and built by craftsmen, with a perfect plastic smile and the spindles of her limbs hand-turned and gloss-varnished'.
Now David Cameron, while on a trip to India, has reportedly waded into the row to support the pregnant Duchess.
