PAUL BALDWIN: Happy birthday, Kate, our pillar of stability and decency in a crazy world.

SOME adore her because she’s as English as a cream tea on a village green, others because she wears style like a supermodel, and still others because her caring side appears, well, heartfelt and genuine.

However, most people prefer Kate Middleton to Meghan Markle because she isn’t Meghan Markle.

Sunday marks the 40th birthday of the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kate is a beacon of stability and decency in a world going insane on its own wokeness, and a royal family coming apart at the seams (thanks, Harry and Andrew).

She’s a throwback to a simpler time when life was about giving rather than taking, when service, responsibility, and, yes, fortitude were still valued.

And the fact that she was named one of FHM’s top ten most beautiful women in the world is irrelevant.

In the cheap seats, keep it down.

The contrast between the Princes’ wives could not be starker.

Meghan is ostentatious, boastful, obnoxious, and clearly desperate to be the power player in that particular royal power couple.

Kate is a woman who exudes quiet confidence, support, and genuineness, and who, as a result, appears to be in complete control of any situation she finds herself in.

She once admitted that meeting foreign heads of state was intimidating to her, but her presence and warmth have them all falling over themselves the moment she walks into the room.

Macron was drooling like a giddy schoolboy as a result of her actions.

In reality, she demonstrates a strength and intellectual and emotional intelligence that most of our national ambassadors seem to lack.

Who would you prefer to represent Britain on the international stage, if you had to choose?

Kate, Meghan, Boris, Prince Andrew, or, God forbid, an MP like Angela Rayner? Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate, Kate

‘Of course,’ says the narrator, ‘it’ll happen.’

We hacks are supposed to be able to criticize, analyze, and, yes, spot flaws, hypocrisy, and weakness in the great and the good.

This is life.

But it’s genuinely difficult to find any in Kate; she’s simply a nice person who is easy to like.

Envy is enough to turn an American actress green.

But it’s all the more disarming because, while Meghan has made a big show of her “good work for charity,” Kate has gone about her business quietly.
