The Royal & The Clueless - Episode 16
On the last episode of The Royal and The Clueless, Kate Middleton vowed to make better use of her time. Recently recorded speaking in public for the first time, Kate decides to work on her enunciation with her co-worker Enrique.
Kate: Do you think I sounded okay on that YouTube video?
Enrique: Darling, you did a great job. I can hear you thanking small children for posies in that voice. But there's still work to do. Let's begin: "The rain in Spain falls mainly in the plain.."
Kate: The rine in spine sties minely in the pline
