Anonymous asked: Why do you think so many people still call Kate Middleton, well, Kate Middleton? She's been married for over a year and even parts of the media still use her maiden name. That said I did find it very amusing when suddenly people started insisting on calling her Catherine once she was engaged. Using her maiden name seems weird. Yet using her proper name seems snobby. Is this the zone of British classism?

I think it’s just force of habit. Kate has been in the public eye for nearly 10 years prior to marriage. So everyone in the UK is used to calling her Kate Middleton.

I do remember the same thing happening to Sophie in the late 90s and even Diana in the first few years was still referred to as “Lady di” by the press and public. I don’t think it’s a snobbery thing it’s just a habit.
