British Novelist Blasts Duchess Kate as 'Plastic'

Backlash is surfacing over a novelist's criticism of Duchess Kate, calling her "plastic." INSIDE EDITION has the scoop.

Think everybody in the world loves and admires Princess Kate? Think again.

These scathing words were delivered in a speech by British novelist Hilary Mantel, and they're triggering a world-wide uproar.

"Kate Middleton appeared to have been designed by a committee and built by craftsmen, with a perfect plastic smile," she said.

Talk about a royal insult!

Mantel ranted, "She was just a shop-window mannequin, with no personality of her own."
