Kate Middleton: "Embarrassed" by Unflattering Birthday Pics???

Part of me just wants to leave you with a copy of the article.

The other part of me feels compelled to sit the author down like a teacher would with her second-grade student, and ask them why they thought this was a good idea.

Celebrity Dirty Laundry claims that a tweet posted by the British Monarchy to celebrate the Duchess of Cambridge's 34th birthday was most unflattering.

"Neither pic is very complimentary. A young, chipmunk-cheeked Kate Middleton is barely smiling in the first pic," the site claims.

The British Monarchy Wishes Kate Middleton a Happy 34th Birthday

"The smile in the second photo of the all-grown-up Duchess Kate is forced and the future Queen appears a bit weary, looking older than her years in a snapshot from not long ago."


"The Royal PR machine could have chosen better photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge to share, don’t you think? Did Carole Middleton select the pic of a young Katie? Is Carole trying to make Duchess Kate look bad now that Pippa Middleton is allegedly dating Prince Harry?"

Who's Katie?

Alrighty.  First off, Pippa and Harry aren't dating.

Second of all, after William and Catherine announced their engagement, the Middleton family released photos of Her Royal Highness as a child.  

Why?  Because they're adorable and it's lovely to see Catherine as a youth, "chipmunk" cheeks and all.

THEN the article goes on to suggest plastic surgery as a way for Catherine put some pep in her step, claiming that her neck appeared "wrinkly" and "droopy" on Christmas.

"Is Prince William worried that Princess Kate will turn into a plastic surgery junkie? A nip here? A tuck there? A little bit of Botox or filler to smooth out those laugh lines? A little procedure to get rid of the bags under Kate’s eyes? Perhaps a neck lift? Just in time for the alleged billion dollar coronation in April!"

Not only is the report made up (it's something you would write up if you were penning a soap opera), but attacking someone's features is plain rude.
