Editor's Viewpoint: Kate Middleton's gilded cage

Most little girls want to be like Kate Middleton and grow up to be a princess.

But, according to a poll, most adult women don't envy Kate's forthcoming gilded existence.

Nine out of 1 cited being unable to lead a normal life and media intrusion as the reasons for not wanting to be a princess. Perhaps that is a hangover from the Princess Di era when many felt the public scrutiny caused her so many problems.

So while millions watch the pomp and ceremony of the royal wedding, most women will be glad of their own relatively humdrum existences.
