Kate Middleton and Carole are improbable in OK!
Has Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, taken the showbiz shilling and given an interview with OK!, bastion of journalist excellence? No. This is OK!, the mag that had Jack Tweed enact a photoshoot with Jade Goody’s ghost and which told us in its last issue:
In our 2011 Christmas edition of OK! magazine, we published an article, advertised on the front cover, accompanied by what many readers thought was a picture of Katie [Price], Peter Andre and her children which stated that she had given us an interview telling us that she would be reuniting with her ex-husband at Christmas.
In fact, Katie never gave us an interview or stated that she would be reuniting with Peter at Christmas and the picture was in fact a picture of Peter and the children (which he had posed for), which we ran together with a picture of Katie.
What readers get is a feature called “Mum’s The Word” in which we hear that on her 31st birthday, Kate will “no doubt be raising a glass of sparking water to toast her triumphant year“. She “is likely” to have a dinner. It is “possible that Catherine and Prince William will be dining at home”.
After that welter of facts, OK! opines:
“…it remains unknown how her mother Carole Middleton will play a part in the birthday celebrations…”
Why not guess. Carole will no doubt do her impression of Prince Charles as tampon before, in all likelihood, eating food, drinking drinks, breathing air and possibly ending the night by sleeping in a bed beneath a Peter Andre duvet.
