Kate Middleton Baby Shower: Not Happening?

by at . Comments

Despite all the rumors of a baby shower for the pregnant Kate Middleton, royal experts are saying the event is quite unlikely to happen. Why?

Oh Kate

According to ABC News Royal Expert Victoria Arbiter, the Duchess of Cambridge will most likely eschew a big to-do because of the "added pressure."

"[She and Prince William] are clearly very wealthy, so a lavish baby shower would be seen as inappropriate ... there's nothing they can't buy themselves."

Rumors indicated that her sister Pippa Middleton was planning a "down-to-earth" baby shower for the duchess, complete with wine, beer and Queen Elizabeth II.

You know. Standard operating procedure for the mom-to-be.

While there's still a chance Pips will put together a small event, but baby showers aren't customary in the UK, so it's not as if skipping out would be a shock.

On the flip side, you can guarantee Kim Kardashian's baby shower will be the star-studded, over-the-top, borderline offensively extravagant and live Tweeted type.

Just a question of where and when.
