Tonight, Prince William and Kate Middleton hosted a reception at Kensington Palace to remind people they are going to India and Bhutan.
Buzz about the upcoming tour of India and Bhutan from April 10th-16th has been flying at half-mast. Even the number of Cambridge Critics logging onto sites to vent about the lazy duo has diminished considerably. An unmoderated Daily Mail article about the Bhutan visit only had four comments nine hours after it was published.
Well, the Cambridges wanted to be left alone, although it probably was not the best strategy to wrap themselves in apathetic irrelevancy so soon before a royal tour.
It’s been nineteen days since Kate’s last appearance, the opening of a charity shop on March 18th which came in under thirty-five minutes, one day after blowing off the Irish Guards. Because, hair.
At Wednesday’s reception, Kate also reminded people she’s still royal now by going Totally Tudor in a neck ruffle both Queen Elizabeth I and Princess Diana favored.
Kate wore the Mary Navy Dots maxi dress by Saloni London.
On Kate, it was that curious Senior Citizens on Cialis look Kate seems fond of like back in October when the duchess combined Mother of the Bride and side boob.
Kate wasn’t bold enough to go with the semi-sheer swiss dot front panel and her dress was actually lined, creating pale mounds that resembled those of her own topless doll.
On Twitter, Julie RocketQueen @rocketqueen1985 described the dress as “20 yards of WTF”.
With her hair worn down, it wasn’t totally apparent which side of Kate was the front.
Kate left household cleaning implements everywhere shouting, “Bitch stole my look.”
I have no idea how Kate is going to carry all that extra add-on hair on a six hour hike to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery during the upcoming tour. Here is a screengrab from one of the pics @KensingtonRoyal posted on Twitter:
Another Twitter post by the Mirror’s Victoria Murphy revealed that Kate may have learned a little bit about lighting. When being photographed with London-based Indian model Neelam Gill, pretty much your only chance of not being totally dwarfed by her beauty is to nudge her towards a light source so she’ll be in the shadows.
The real star of the night, though, was the Cheesy Snacks posted by Victoria Murphy.
