‘Blair`s ex-adviser to teach diplomacy to Kate’
London: Prince William`s fiancee Kate
Middleton is to get diplomacy lessons from the man who was
former Prime Minister Tony Blair`s key foreign policy adviser
in the run-up to the Iraq war, a media report said.
Sir David Manning, a veteran diplomat who already
advises Princes William and Harry, is to act as Kate`s mentor
on foreign affairs, the `Daily Express` reported.
In fact, the veteran foreign affairs expert will
prepare 29-year-old Kate for the political side of the job of
being a member of the British Royal Family after she marries
the 28-year-old second-in-line to the throne on April 29.
Sir David, 61, was Blair`s foreign policy adviser
in Downing Street between 2001 and 2003 and then served as
British ambassador to the US until 2007.
He is expected to accompany William and Kate -- who
got engaged last October -- on their first few overseas tours
after their marriage, the report said.
