Hi teachers,

In this sentence: I'll try to keep my private life private.

The first 'private' it's an adjective. What's the second 'private'?
Is it absolutely necessary the secon 'private' for the sentence?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, it is necessary for the meaning. The 2nd 'private' is a predicate adjective.

I'll try to keep my private life private. = I will try to keep my private life from becoming public knowledge.

(Who's speaking, Kate Middleton?)

No, she's not the future royal Kate Middleton. It is just an interview for a mayoral candidate.
