Mantel is widely criticized in the media Tuesday Feb. 19, 2013, for her "venomous attack" on the former Kate Middleton, the wife of Prince William, for published comments about the British public’s complex relationship with royalty quoting Mantel saying the princess is "a jointed doll on which certain rags were hung", and said she appeared to be designed by committee with a perfect plastic smile.
