Hold on to all those gender-neutral swaddling blankets and spit up rags you were hoping to send in the mail because there probably isn’t going to be a royal baby shower. Pippa Middleton will just have to upstage somebody else’s with her wine and beer-filled “down-to-earth” celebration. Whatever will Kate Middleton do now? How in the world will she get everything she needs before that bundle of joy comes along? She’ll buy it all herself! Biotch has plenty of money.
Apparently that’s the world around Buckingham Palace. There are a couple reasons why the Kate Middleton baby shower isn’t happening anymore – British girls don’t usually have them and she’s spoiled enough already. You don’t believe me? Kate’s said before that she’s spoiled so asking people for gifts at this point when the economy is still in the shitter might look a little tacky and we all know how Pippa and Kate feel about being labeled tacky.
Victoria Arbiter, ABC News Royal Expert, reported the fun event won’t happen because of the “added pressure that [she and Prince William] are clearly very wealthy, and a lavish baby shower would be seen as highly inappropriate. There’s nothing they can’t go out and buy themselves.”
True dat. Appearances are everything to these people. But I can’t help but be a little disappointed. Baby showers aren’t all about the gifts – rich or not. It’s about the party. It’s about women getting together and celebrating. Personally I despise them for the most part because talking baby things is mind-numbingly boring but I can’t shit on the people who love that stuff. It gives women a chance to extol advice and quietly judge. Good times. Kate should have that if she wants. Arbiter did go on to concede that Pippa might throw something very small on the sly but the chances the Queen would show are incredibly low. Too bad. I’m sure we all wanted pics of the Queen measuring Kate’s belly with toilet paper.
So do we feel for Kate on this one? Is this another instance of normalcy being taken away from her because she’s a Windsor now? I think I’d get over that pretty quickly!
Pics below are of the royal family going to Easter mass. I’m loving the Queen’s pastels. Does it seem like Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice are stealing Kate’s style?
