“A royal source” (via the Express) announced today that Kate Middleton pulled out of yet another appearance. Like last time, Kensington Palace never announced the appearance, but today a source confirmed Kate was supposed to visit Sir Ben Ainslie’s new America’s Cup team base in Portsmouth, Hampshire next Monday, October 13, but is unable to attend because she’s still suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum (sidenote: I’ve typed this so much by now that I don’t even have to check the spelling anymore, I know it by heart).
How interesting that they leaked this info. Instead of quietly pulling out of the appearance, they had to leak that she was scheduled to go to show how much she really wants to work (like seriously, guys, she’s so dedicated), but is too sick to go anywhere (like seriously, guys, she’s so sick). That’s right, KP, keep her name in the press and try and convince us what a hard worker she’d be if she weren’t “so incredibly sick”. Because that will totally wash away the negative press you got for threatening Tanna with legal docs.
This latest dropped appearance brings Kate’s total to 15 engagements on seven different days (the Express said 16 engagements on six different days – no idea where that extra engagement came from but I’m absolutely sure they are missing a day). She’s been MIA since her last public appearance on August 5 at the Tower of London Poppy Installation, eight and a half (8 1/2) weeks ago. We caught a glimpse of her and William out to dinner and catching the train five and a half (5 1/2) weeks ago, at the end of August. And it’s been just over four weeks since she dropped out of Oxford and announced her pregnancy.
We still haven’t had an official KP update announcing her due month, which means she’s still not 12 weeks yet. The Express is claiming she’s 11 week now.
The Express mentioned how Kate was back to attending Sports Awards ceremonies a mere two weeks after a three day hospital stay during her last pregnancy, but by next week it will be five weeks since she announced her pregnancy, without a very public hospital stay, and yet she hasn’t made any appearances. I guess KP learned from last time and is keeping Kate away from events to show just how sick she is – they don’t want us easily confirming what big liars they are this time. Unfortunately that only draws out the conspiracy theories because it seems so odd that we haven’t seen her for so long.
You know what’s interesting? That Kate is so totally sick that she can’t go anywhere… except her parent’s house, if People is to be believed. Their sources claim Kate has been staying with her parents because Kate is sick and needs her mummy to take care of her, and that “having to deal with all the staff and everything else that comes with a big palace full of rooms” is just oh so tiring. I’d believe Kate is in Bucklebury with her parents, but what’s interesting is that Prince George is still in London with Nanny Maria, as evidenced by the harassment claims against Tanna where they said he was following them in all sorts of London parks recently. I guess the stress of “everything else that comes with a big palace full of rooms” includes her loud, rambunctious son, so Kate has gone to mummy to get away from him.
