"Doors to manual"


Senior Member

In a programme about the new royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton, a comment is made about Middleton's mother at the time of the couple's break up.

"There were a lot of vitriolic comments leveled at her ‘doors to manual', how she was common, how she chewed gum in public."

What does "doors to manual" refer to? Thanks again!

    They were probably making a reference to her past history as an air steward. When a plane is just about to taxi off down the runway, you often hear the pilot give out instructions to the cabin crew, which include "Doors to Manual." The coverage is sniping because Kate Middleton is not of an aristocratic background (although I would say she is certainly not your average girl, being from a very wealthy family and having attended one of the most prestigious public schools in England).
