<Note: I see a lot of people searching for “Late Kate” and ending up here. Would you please tell me what you were expecting? I have found this search term very intriguing and I’d love to know more. Thanks >
Way back in time, in first grade the Slo-Man’s first tentative steps into the beguiling world of the English language consisted of the Radiant Reader. After “Sing mother sing. Mother can sing. Pat can sing. Mother sing to Pat. Pat sing to mother.” came the advanced story of Kate.
Kate was always late, hence her nickname – Late Kate. Daydreaming on the seashore, Kate was late again and “Alas, a big wave came and swept her out to sea”.
And nearly 50 years later another Kate, a much more famous Kate, is late again.
Or is she? Call the palace. Someone there is bound to know.
