Kate Not Pregnant, Says VF Mag

Vanity Fair magazine on sale on Friday

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.”
