Kate Middleton portrayed as a gold digger in Chinese video

After a video of Kate Middleton depicted as a gold digger surfaced over the weekend, many are up in arms. However, officials in China behind the tape of Will and Kate and The Queen, say it’s meant to promote Panda Cabs, not disrespect the British Royals.

Citing the Huffington Post, tourism officials in the Chinese city of Chengdu, put together the short video that featured three lookalikes of the Royal Family. They acted out a scene in which Prince William, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Queen Elizabeth II are trying to hail a cab in rainy London, on their way to the Diamond Jubilee.

Colette Mularkey, who is a spot-on Doppelganger for Kate Middleton, shows off her frustration and spoiled antics by saying, “I just don’t understand why we cannot take the royal limo. I didn’t marry into royalty to schlep around in a taxi.”

There are some, who will think the video is tongue-in-cheek, while others will likely say it’s down-right disrespectful. In fact, based on a survey the Huffington Post took, 59.54% of those polled thought the video depicting Kate Middleton as a gold-digger was inappropriate.

While representatives from Chengdu Association are dismissing the video of Middleton as a gold-digger as merely “harmless fun,” others say it is a deliberate attempt at disrespecting Will and Kate.
