Who knew Kate Middleton and Reese Witherspoon stayed such good friends? The two met when Kate and Prince William stopped by LA last year during their tour of Canada. Reese fangirled all over the duchess when she met her at the reception to mark the Launch of Tusk Trust’s US Patron’s Circle in Santa Barbara. I remember loving those pics because Reese looked like the biggest dork. She fawned all over Kate, who in turn, towered over Reese and managed to make her look frumpy. And then Reese talked about it every day after in a stalker but kind of adorable way.
Later on the Ellen DeGeneres show Reese said: “I must of tried on like six outfits. I’m meeting a princess. You don’t understand. You have to be wearing the right outfit and the whole thing. I don’t know, maybe we can be friends. So we went and it’s always funny. Whenever I am super excited about things, my husband calls it the double barrel. That’s when I smile so big I look like a child. I was so excited to meet her. Y’all, she’s a princess. I mean, I would like to hang out. I’m not sure she wants to hang out with me. I could see that happening. She was really nice. She was lovely. She’s so composed. She seems like such a lady and I think it’s so nice nowadays to see someone with such nice composure and carries herself so beautifully. Call me. Call me anytime.”
Well, I’m not sure if Kate called but she did send a gift for Reese Witherspoon’s baby, Tennessee James Toth. According to Star magazine, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were one of the first to send a congratulations note along with a cute Union Jack onesie. Um, how freakin’ adorable is that? I’m smiling as I write this because I want it to be true! Please can it be true? I love it! Apparently, Reese made just as big an impression on Kate, right? I’d imagine Kate has plenty on her mind right now, with all the topless photos floating around, but she still made time to send something to a celebrity she met once. Believable? I vote yes!
But you don’t think Reese would let Little T wear anything Kate Middleton buys for him do you? Hells no. She’s framing it. Mark my words. That onesie’s going up in the living room with a plaque saying “Donated by the Queen and King of England”. No joke. Did you see the way Reese looked at Kate at that reception? Pure adulation. That would be me, just 98% less composed. Ya, there’s no way that baby’s drooling on that gift any time soon!
Was Kate Middleton’s baby gift cute and appropriate or totally imaginary? I could see Reese hallucinating this story!
