The first pictures of our MIA Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, have surfaced in a US publication, the NY Daily News (go here to see the pics). There are three pictures of Kate, accompanied by Prince William, heading out of what appears to be her doctor’s office on October 15. Supposedly, the doctor’s visit was for the 12 week scan, but that is of course not confirmed. I was hoping Kensington Palace would release a statement saying she was past the twelve week mark and what her birth month is, but I’ve given them enough time to do so, so I guess that won’t happen today (or at least it hasn’t happened as of the time of this posting).
First thing, if these are true candid shots, and Will doesn’t know the pap is there, then damn he is one grumpy man. He’s got Grumpy Face in all of the photos; I mean, I get that it’s raining, but Kate is smiling. And he isn’t helping his supposedly incredibly sick wife at all – he’s lagging behind her in all the photos. What a bum!
In the photos, Kate walked out of the office on her own, and was smiling in one of them. So she’s at least well enough (and strong enough) not to need assistance. She’s also wearing what appears to be her trusty skinny jeans. So she’s apparently well enough not to be uncomfortable in skin-tight clothing. So… does that mean she’ll actually show up to welcome the President of Singapore on Tuesday? She, along with William, is scheduled to greet the President when he arrives on Tuesday, October 21, for his state visit. I hope she doesn’t drop out again. And if she does drop out, at least don’t do it last minute, that would be so rude.
Here’s the million dollar question: Will they complain? They’ve complained about a number of “unauthorized” photos before, but then they’ve also not complained before. But then they just sent legal docs to Tanna. So what’s it going to be? We could argue about whether or not it is right for them to complain about pap photos (please let’s not do that again), but as far as I’m concerned, Will and Kate just need to be consistent. Pick a stance and stick to it. If they want to complain about pap photos, then fine (we’ll mostly disagree, but fine), but then they must always complain about pap photos. They can’t randomly not complain if the photos make them look good.
PS. It’s been almost six weeks since Kate announced her pregnancy, and there is still no news from KP about her due month, which means Kate isn’t at the twelve week mark yet. Which means she was six weeks or less pregnant when they announced the pregnancy. Was she really that sick at only six weeks? And remember, Will said she’d been feeling ill for a few days/a week, so it would have been five weeks when she started feeling sick. Help me out ladies, do women usually get that sick (and I mean, like HG sick) at only five weeks? I know I’m sounding cynical, but if women normally get sick that early, I’ll lay off Kate, but it just seems early to me (as a woman who has never been pregnant).
UPDATE: Looks like the consensus is my shade here is inaccurate, women can indeed be that sick that early. Thank you all for the clarification. I retract my shade. /UPDATE
PPS. Jessica Hay was WRONG! Hay claimed back in mid-July that Kate was pregnant with her second child and would be announcing in a few weeks. But given that Kate hasn’t even reached her 12 week mark yet, and it’s the middle of October, Kate wasn’t even pregnant when Hay claimed to have the inside scoop on the second pregnancy.
