Last week, the tabloid Star Magazine reported Kate Middleton was “four months pregnant.” The cover story even said she was expecting a girl, and that she planned to name the baby after Prince William’s late mother, Princess Diana. “It’s official,” blared the issue’s cover.

Fast forward to now and Star is asking on its website, “Is Kate Hiding A Baby Bump? Kate Middleton Covers Stomach With Clutch At London Event!” The accompanying post says, “Kate Middleton attended a film premiere in London on Thursday night and she was her usual stunning self in a white gown by the designer Self-Portrait. The Duchess of Cambridge accessorized with a maroon heels, clutch, and a beautiful Poppy pin. The royal kept her bag curiously over her stomach the entire night! Could she and Prince William be expecting their third child?”

As we all know by now Star magazine has no shame, and will report anything they believe will sell their magazine in supermarkets, regardless of facts. Thus why they have been sued only about a million times.

Insiders within the royal family are claiming the tabloid is simply “making stuff up as usual, and no one is buying it anymore.”
