The Mail's Amanda Platell has called on everybody to leave Kate Middleton alone, hitting out at "spiteful", "callous" "armies of whispering Kate critics" who "scour her elegant hair up-do for rogue silvery strands, her forehead for telltale creases".
Who would be so spiteful, callous and critical? This selection of Mail Online headlines may offer some clues:
Or what about this criticism in the Daily Mail of Kate’s hairstyle. By none-other than Amanda Platell:
"Why is Kate clinging to her own over-long mane? Even she must have been infuriated by being overshadowed by her hair… For goodness sake, she’s a member of the Royal Household now, not Cheryl Cole."
Or how about the time Kate was told to cover up, by the Daily Mail’s Amanda Platell:
"Surely Kate could have tried a little harder to keep her modesty under wraps? As a relatively seasoned member of the Royal Family, isn’t it time she made more of an effort to cover up?"
Despite her own fondness for criticising everything from Kate's hair to her choice of underwear ("a thong that would make even a cheese cutter wince"), Platell has also criticised recent discussion of whether or not Kate was wearing a bra to the James Bond premiere.
It probably goes without saying the Mail lead the way there too:
Of course, Platell blames the criticisms on "Twitter" and unnamed "trolls". Her article is the very model of faux concern and delusion. "Poor Kate. How does she cope with being the subject of such relentless commentary?" writes relentless commentator Platell. It is a question and a faux concern her own paper will be the first to ignore.
