The Duchess of Cambridge is expected to see her title change to Princess of Wales once Prince Charles becomes King and William moves up the ranks to become Prince of Wales. She has also received praise from critics over her willingness to bring healing between her husband and Prince Harry at Prince Philip’s funeral, and for encouraging William to share more personal family moments with fans by way of social media. The couple launched a YouTube channel in May by releasing a video that has been watched more than three million times and already has 517,000 subscribers. New research suggests that the move could prove to be rather lucrative, with Social Blade estimating the couple could earn a whopping £11,725 ($16,500) a month from the channel.
However, unearthed reports have shown that not only did the Queen demand Kate “get a job” but, William’s friends would say “doors to manual” to the Duchess every time they went out to party.
In the documentary ‘Prince William & Catherine: A Royal Love Story’ Lucie Cave, editor-in-chief for Heat Magazine detailed more.
She said: “The fact that she has a family who owns a company called ‘Party Pieces’ makes the public like her even more because she does seem so down to earth.
“I think she got quite a lot of stick from it from [William’s] friends at the very beginning.
“When all of them used to go out to the night clubs I think some of his friends used to make the joke ‘doors to manual’ when she walked through the door, which was a reference to her mother because she used to be an air hostess.”
Carole and Michael Middleton started their family business ‘Party Pieces’ in 1987.
The online store sells party supplies such as numbered balloons, decorations, balloon banners, and also caters to both children and adults.
After Kate graduated from the University of St Andrews, she found herself to be in an awkward position because the Queen was not fond of Kate working part-time at Party Pieces.
In the 2011 Amazon Prime documentary ‘William and Kate into the Future’, the Duchess’ biographer, Claudia Joseph, said: “I think Kate is in an invidious position.
“She has been with William for a long time – eight years – and to have to go into work every morning and not being able to talk about what you did the night before, is very difficult.
“Saying that there are many people in this country who work for the family business.
“It’s not that unusual – of all backgrounds – and she’s been working for them quietly behind the scenes and helping them earn a living.”

Today, it is unlikely that Her Majesty or William’s friends have to make demands to find employment or make air hostess jokes to Kate as she has successfully carved out a career for herself and her family.
Further research by Money.co.uk suggests Kate and William could earn just shy of £10,000 a month from their YouTube channel.
Finance expert at Money.co.uk Salman Haqqi said: “It’s really great to see the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge venturing into new social mediums to not only help elevate their campaigns and projects but also give fans a chance to get a closer look into their lives as the popularity grows.
“With forecasts predicting an estimated earning of £9,700 on the higher sale, the couple could potentially use their YouTube revenue on social media campaigns, current projects or charity organisations.”
