Radiant Kate Middleton Is Skeletal: Daily Express Undermines Daily Star Expert

KATE Middleton needs “CAKE”, declares the Daily Star.

The Star calls upon an “expert” in looking at photos of Kate Middleton and work out how thin she is. The guru is called Laura Williams, “a dieting expert who has appeared on Channel 5’s Vanessa Show”.

Williams tells the Star, owned by Richard Desmond, that Kate looks “stressed and drawn at the moment”, adding:

“She is under tremendous scrutiny and the attention could well be getting to her.”

More of that pressure on 5, Richard Desmond’s TV station.

Stalkers Set To Really Enjoy The Wedding Of Prince William And Kate Middleton

HURRAY! There’s a Royal Wedding! Of course, every single Briton absolutely adores those deserving, clueless, blueblooded lizard men!

Naturally, there are those who don’t really like the Royal Family, but you can’t complain too much because they’ve wafted their well-bred hands and got us all a day-off work, which collectively, we’ll not want to enjoy too much on the off chance it makes us look like we’re rooting for those scaly swine!

Either way, the Royal Wedding, complete with capital letters, is going ahead and whether you like it or not, it’ll be the talk of lovers and haters alike while Prince William stands very upright gnashing his impossible teeth and Kate Middleton looks for all the world like she’s to become The Next Princess Diana (aka designed entirely to be slightly less posh than her new in-laws, forever to destined to nod meekly at AIDS suffers and limbless orphans).

Daily Express Honours Princess Diana By Calling Kate Middleton A Bitch

FOLLOWING yesterday’s news that the Independent admits to writing “shit” stories, we being news that the Daily Express thinks Kate Middleton is a”bitch” (click the image):

express.co.uk/posts/view/241563/4979-days-since-di-was-murdered-who-does-this-bitch-thin-she-is?

The Express rehashes a press release based on a dating site’s opinion poll that Kate Middleton is more shaggable than Princess Diana.

The joke is, of course , that the Express has been shagging Diana’s bones ever since the celebrity royal shuffled off the Fabled Sixth Floor of Harvey Nichols.

Royal Wedding Death Plot: Loving Kate Middleton Is A Mental Illness

KATE Middleton has “STALKERS”! The Daily Mirror leads with news that “COPS” have “SWOOPED” on these Stalkers.
Reading on we learn from Victoria Murphy that:

STALKERS out to gatecrash the royal wedding are being targeted by police.

Who are these stalkers plotting to bypass the police, the cavalry, the snipers, the footmen, the SAS and Camilla to get close to Princess Catherine?

They have swooped on at least a dozen suspects, including mental health patients, and warned them to stay away from Wills and Kate’s big day on April 29 – for their own safety.

The Royal Wedding Is For Conformist Idiots: So Says The Liberal Elite

THE Royal Wedding is but days away, and with Kate ‘Dodi’ Middleton is the front runner to marry Prince William and save us all from a President for at least another generation.

Others, however, think the monarchy is a joke they can see through. Guardian columnist Tanya Gold want to show us that she knows what you are too stupid to realise:

“I am going to be tried for saying this, but a royal wedding will make idiots of us Brits.”

What it is to be superior to the dolts who buy plates and mugs (how apt). They have no idea that the plate is just a bit of china with a photo stuck on it. Good that the liberal intelligentsia can point out their flaws and call them idiots. Hang the fact that the wedding is harmless froth, a bit of fun that look good on the telly and in your street, if you are inclined to hang out bunting and enjoy yourself. You’re all mentally negligible fools. The smart option is to spend the day sneering publicly, recycling and telling your pals that you are not watching the wedding.

Kate Middleton: Princess Diana’s Ring Haunted By Bulemia

IN “WIDTH THS RING”, the Sun brings front-page news that Kate Middleton is now so thin her engagement ring has been reduced in size to fit her finger.

“Super-slim Kate has Diana’s engagement band shrunk to fit.”

Is the Sun fast-tracking Kate to Diana-dom? Is Kate not even waiting until the marriage to a Prince before she loses weight? Never mind the Kate hand being unable to support a ring, we’re watching to see how long it is before her too-thin neck causes her head to tilt to one side – like Diana’s did!

Gulp! Is the ring haunted by an eating disorder!? Does Kate Middleton’s ring have bulemia?

Kate Middleton’s Bullying Hell: Who Put A Poo In Her Bed?

KATE Middleton wants to tell you about “MY BULLYING HELL”.

Was the future Mrs Prince William a kindergarten tough? Well, no. The News of the World has news:

ROYAL bride Kate Middleton suffered a devastating ordeal at the hands of a gang of vicious bullies, the News of the World can reveal.

It was those Palace flunkies that did for Diana, we’d wager?

Her teenage tormentors even put excrement in her bedsheets at posh Downe House school and hounded Terrified Kate, 29, was hounded for being “too perfect”.

That’s her story and she is sticking to it – literally.

School pal Jessica Hay said: “She told me she was very, very badly bullied.”

This might not be the best advert Downe House, that school where gels are processed into young ladies, has seen published.

We are told that Kate was “too nice for her own good“. Her two terms at the Berkshire school were a “tears-filled nightmare”.

The story is rooted in a new book by Sean Smith, authour of Cheryl, (a book about Cheryl Cole) Robbie (Robbie Williams), Jennifer: The Unauthorized Biography of Jennifer Aniston, Kylie: The Biography (Kylie Minogue), Britney: The Biography (Britney Spears), Victoria Beckham: The Biography, Justin Timberlake: The Biography, J.K.Rowling: A Biography and Royal Racing: The Queen and Queen Mother’s Sporting Life.

His books are published by Simon & Schuster, and distributed by Harper Collins, owned by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation. Mr Murdoch also owns the Sun. This front-page news looks a lot like an advertorial.

Here’s the blurb about the book:

Kate’s journey begins with her remarkable mother, Carole, a true rags-to-riches story. Sean Smith examines Kate’s early life, her unhappy time being bullied at school before finding her feet at Marlborough College where she was transformed from an ugly duckling to a swan. He travels to St Andrews in Scotland where she met Prince William.

Yep. It’s a modern fairytale, in which the normal “ugly” girl suffers to become a swan.

As for that headline-making bullying… Well, the stories are rooted in Smith’s interviews with some of Kate’s “closest friends”. You may suppose that Kate’s closest friends would not talk to the media and writers of unofficial biographies. But you’d be wrong, apparently.

“The bullying was far worse than just knocking her schoolbooks out of her hands or pushing her to the back of the lunch queue.”

Worse than that?!

“Poor Kate was lonely, homesick and frequently in tears.”

So. It wasn’t just the alleged bullying that made her time at the school trying. She was homesick at boarding school at age 13.

And if there was bulling there must have been bullies. Will those girls now grown up bridle at the accusation?

“She had run into a pack of bullies who reduced her to an emotional wreck. Until then she had been at mixed schools and had no experience of how bitchy girls could be.”

Because girls at mixed school aren’t bitchy? Who knew?

This is followed by news of Kate being too perfect, her, er, eczema, and:

Kate’s parents went to see the then Marlborough headmaster, Ed Gould, to plead with him to take Kate in the middle of the summer term. Mr Gould listened sympathetically to their story and found her a place in the school’s all-girl house Elmhurst, renowned for its sporting excellence.

But what about girls being bitches when they are in one school?

Get a load of these alleged bitches, or as the paper puts it: “Famous old girls who survived.”

As Kate won the trust of her new pals, she told them how she “absolutely hated” her time at Downe House, which numbers BBC sports presenter Clare Balding, TV sitcom star Miranda Hart and model-turned TV chef Sophie Dahl among its former pupils.

And then we read the clincher: Kate Middleton is just like the caring News of The World:

She has never publicly spoken about her bullying ordeal – but has asked the 1,900 guests at her wedding to donate to charity Beatbullying, which has campaigned with the News of the World to stamp out the national problem.

Hurrah for Kate! Hurrah for the NoTW! Bully for them!!

WHAT have Count Carl and Countess Nathalie Von Bismark been up to? Happily, that question can now be answered thanks to an interview in Hello! magazine.

“Countess Nathalie Von Bismark hitches up the chiffon hem of her Ralph Lauren gown to give a glimpse of a shapely leg encased in the softest white fur–lined Chanel boots.”

Hello! notes that “her raven tresses” offer a “neat Disney-esque contrast to the snowy backdrop”.
