Kate Not Pregnant, Says VF Mag
The Royalist has just seen an advance copy of Katie Nicholl's 'blockbuster' Vanity Fair piece on Kate Middleton. Among the snippets we like:
Kate has a 'bee venom facial' before she goes out, and the 'natural botox' was recommended to her by Camilla.
"She applies her own make- up (which she is never seen without) before engagements, using Bobbi Brown soft-brown eyebrow pencil on her shaped brows and gel liner for her kohl-rimmed eyes."
And Miss Nicholl strongly hints that Kate is not pregnant:
"Friends say the couple “hope to be blessed with a baby soon,” adding that it is with some reluctance that they have had to put their plans for a family on hold this year to focus on the diamond Jubilee, the olympics, and a busy schedule of work commitments that involves a huge amount of traveling. If she was pregnant, the 20-hour flight to Tuvalu [later this year] would be testing for Kate, and both she and William are keen not to overshadow the Queen in her diamond year. When they return, baby-making is, as one friend describes it, “top of the agenda.”
