There’s so much to admire here: The reference to Duchess Katherine, which misspells her name. Then the implication that she’s the Duchess of Middleton, which is like two mistakes in two words.
But wait! It looks like someone at the Internet giant finally realized there’s a mistake (or two) in that caption, and attempted to fix it:
Oh, that’s so much better.
