The Middletons

'Much has been made, in the many weeks leading to the royal wedding, and the many years since the press began speculating about the possibility of one, of the fact that, in marrying Kate Middleton, Prince William would make a "commoner" his queen. But it is only when one revisits the places that made some of her immediate family that one appreciates quite how common is common.'

--The likely great-grandmother of Britain's next monarch but two, in contrast, was raised in a row of houses that elsewhere might have been demolished in a slum clearance. Bankside was poor after the war and it is poor now, a scruffy cul-de-sac next to the Grand Union Canal, where the swans fight with pigeons over slices of white bread floating on the green water and an anonymous industrial estate stares blankly across the canal while planes from Heathrow wheel low at the end of the street.
