Kate Middleton is supposedly “ga-ga” over Brad Pitt. The Duchess of Cambridge has launched a campaign with Queen Elizabeth to have him knighted, claims the National Enquirer.

According to a supposed “royal source” for the supermarket tabloid, “Ever since [Angelina] Jolie was rewarded with the honorary title of ‘Lady’ for her humanitarian activities, Kate’s been whispering to the Queen, plugging Pitt’s incredible humanitarian efforts — like using his construction expertise to build houses for New Orleans folks made homeless by Hurricane Katrina.”

Adds the magazine’s “source” in an equally bogus quotation: “The Duchess is doing what Americans call her ‘darndest’ to get Brad’s name on the next honours list!”

The Enquirer seems to be continuing its streak of fictitious stories about Middleton. Gossip Cop reached out to the Duchess’ rep, and we’re told exclusively that the magazine’s claim about Middleton lobbying on Pitt’s behalf is entirely “wrong.”

The National Enquirer just tried and failed at pulling off a classic tabloid move. Take one of the biggest stars, take another one of the most beloved public faces, put them together in some tale… and voila, there’s a story to print! The outlet’s hope, of course, is people will eat it up. Gossip Cop is here to make sure that doesn’t happen, and will keep separating fact from fiction about Pitt and Middleton, both together and apart.
