Did Kate Middleton have a jar of pickles delivered to Kensington Palace to satisfy her pregnancy craving? That’s the claim in one of this week’s new tabloids, which contends the Duchess of Cambridge had a security guard’s wife make the special delivery. Gossip Cop can correct this bogus report. We’re told it’s “false.”

“Craving Kate’s Decree: ‘My Kingdom For A Pickle!'” blares a headline in the latest issue of Star. In the accompanying story, the publication quotes a so-called “palace insider” as saying that after suffering from severe morning sickness, “Will was thrilled when Kate said she was hungry and asked for a pickle sliced thinly on well-done toast.” The magazine’s seemingly made-up tipster further alleges, “An SOS was dispatched to the kitchen, but staffers found themselves in an actual pickle; they didn’t have a single one.” According to the outlet, one of Middleton’s guards then supposedly called his wife, who rushed over to Kensington Palace “with one of the homemade jars she kept under the kitchen sink.”

Notwithstanding the seemingly fake quotes like “staffers found themselves in an actual pickle,” Gossip Cop looked into the claim, and none of our royal sources could confirm the tale. In fact, one assured us the report is manufactured and “false.” Tellingly, not a single British outlet reported this cravings story, and yet we’re asked to believe a repeatedly disproven U.S. tabloid was privy to this?

Given the outlet’s track record, we’re not entirely surprised by the magazine’s latest piece of royal fiction. Last month, for example, Gossip Cop corrected the often inaccurate magazine when it falsely alleged Meghan Markle made Middleton a “miracle” soup to help her morning sickness. Much like that untrue tale and numerous others, the new article about Middleton having a jar of pickles delivered to Kensington Palace also leaves us with a sour taste.
