Kate Middleton “Jealous” Camilla Parker Bowles Met Lady Gaga?
On Tuesday, Gaga was one of the featured entertainers at the 2016 Royal Variety Performance, an annual show benefitting the Royal Variety Charity. As is tradition, the show always takes place before representatives of the royal family. This year, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla were the ones in attendance.
And, as always, the celebrity entertainers, including Gaga, had an opportunity to greet the royals (see photo above). So, Gaga and Camilla had a brief meeting, where they were photographed and the Duchess of Cornwall shared a sweet anecdote about how her grandchildren call her “Gaga.” That was it.
But now Celeb Dirty Laundry is claiming Middleton, who was not in attendance this year, is upset over their interaction. “Kate Middleton Jealous: Camilla-Parker-Bowles Chats With Lady Gaga At Annual Royal Variety Performance,” reads the headline of the ridiculous piece. The site has no inside information, but writes, “Kate Middleton must be green with envy — Kate has been scrambling for years to make friends in Hollywood because she so admires the shallow lifestyle.”
“While Camilla is telling stories about her grandchildren to Lady Gaga, Kate has been relegated to the minor appearances,” claims the site, which goes on to ask, “Has Camilla Parker-Bowles slowly but surely become the shining star of the royal family?” The webloid concludes by saying, “Maybe Kate Middleton and Prince William will represent the royal family at the 2017 Royal Variety Performances gala. At some point the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will need to stop hiding behind the excuse that they want a normal family life and start assuming some of the more important responsibilities from the senior royals.”
Yet CDL fails to mention that Middleton and Prince William have attended the Royal Variety Performance before, and in fact were the guests of honor in 2014, where the couple mingled with One Direction and other stars. Middleton is not “hiding” from her “responsibilities,” nor is she “jealous” that her mother-in-law happened to meet Gaga at this particular event.
For reasons unknown, the outlet is fixated on depicting the Duchess of Cambridge as “shallow” and celebrity-obsessed. Just last month, the bad blog ran a story falsely claiming Middleton was “desperate” for Meghan Markle’s Hollywood connections. In reality, it seems Celeb Dirty Laundry is just desperate to make Middleton look poorly. This Gaga article is just another example of that.
