Catherine Middleton turned up at the opening of The Natural History Museum’s Treasure Exhibition in London tonight wearing a £1400 silk Mulberry dress buttoned up to the neck that she managed to make look like she’d plucked out of a bargain bin at a Torquay charity shop and worn along with Farrah Fawcett’s hair.
The 30-year-old Discount Duchess has, of course, worn this emerald frock before (this time last year- she must think it’s Chrismassy) and I can’t work out whether she’s now saving money by sacking her mane-man Richard Ward and doing her hair herself and f-cking it up royally, or if someone told her for a joke that the seventies is back in at the moment and it’s on purpose.
All eyes right now are on Katie’s stomach with the pressure (and hopefully her husband) mounting on her to produce a bouncing baby before The Queen pops her clogs and, most importantly, to give the British public something to get excited about as The Diamond Jubilee year draws to a close.
With Wills and Kate as the unofficial faces of a multi-million pound PR campaign which has been carefully drawn up to bring lots of much-needed tourism income to Britain as the country faces a huge recession, and with Prince Harry unlikely to marry for at least several years, it’s time that British maternity designers got chucked a few juicy bones in the shape of an official pregnancy announcement from Buckingham Palace right after the Queen’s Christmas speech.
If she’s already knocked up I bet you my firstborn that Pippa Middleton’s busy making stork-themed street party bunting to sell on the family’s Party Twat website and writing ‘Celebrate: The Baby Shower Edition’ as we speak.
