Does Kate Middleton really love "rubbing elbows" with the "Hollywood elite"? That's the latest claim coming from a certain webloid, but Gossip Cop can set the record straight. We're told it's "false."
As widely reported, Prince William and Middleton are heading to Sweden later this month, and during their visit the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will meet Oscar winner Alicia Vikander during a black-tie gala at the residence of the British Ambassador in Stockholm. Now, according to the often discredited Celeb Dirty Laundry, "If there's one thing that Kate Middleton loves, it's rubbing elbows with the Hollywood elite," and she's going to do everything in her power to be photographed with Vikander.
Without a single source to back up its bogus premise, the unreliable website maintains, "[Middleton] never says no to a red carpet event." The blog next notes, "There's no denying that Alicia Vikander is a huge star in the entertainment world." It then alleges, "It's without a doubt that Kate Middleton will try and get as many photos as she can with Alicia during her visit to Sweden."
Since the outlet often favors fabricated feuds over facts, it fills out the remainder of its manufactured piece by contending that during Prince William and Middleton's royal visit to Sweden the Duchess is "looking to rub this black tie gala in Meghan Markle's face." Why any of this has to do with Markle is beyond comprehension. Still, the website contends Middleton will "definitely look more enthusiastic during her meeting with Alicia Vikander than she was during her Christmas morning stroll" with Markle and Prince Harry.
Of course, the entire article is nothing more than a fabrication, and it's coming from the same site that Gossip Cop has busted on numerous occasions for posting made-up stories about Middleton. For example, we previously corrected CDL when it falsely claimed that a competitive Middleton was adding to her royal workload because she was feeling the "heat" from all the media focus on Markle. That wasn't true, and the same goes for its latest tall tale.
A palace insider tells Gossip Cop the story about Middleton loving to rub elbows with the Hollywood elite is completely "false." What's more, we're further assured the Duchess of Cambridge isn't looking to flaunt her meeting with Vikander in Markle's face, nor was she unenthusiastic about her Christmas Day outing with the former "Suits" actress. In fact, Middleton looked joyful on Christmas Day in Sandringham, as she posed for photos alongside Prince Harry's bride-to-be. Put simply, CDL's new article is just tired old fiction.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
