One royal isn’t good enough??
As you may have heard, Prince William hosted an extremely star-studded charity dinner on Tuesday to benefit the Royal Marsden cancer hospital, and it seemed like everyone there had an excellent time schmoozing about Windsor Castle.
But according to reports, a certain Mr. Ralph Lauren was actually let down by the event — all because fashion darling Kate Middleton didn't show!
A source dished:
“He considered pulling out but was told by his PR advisers that it would look terrible. The company thought they were getting Kate, the most famous clothes horse in the world, and also a runway show at the castle. The Duke and Duchess regularly undertake separate engagements in support of the charities with which they are involved.”
Well, he should’ve at least been grateful that Cate Blanchett, Margot Robbie, Emma Watson, and Cara Delevingne were all there hawking his wares!
However, Mr. Lauren’s rep completely denies that Ralphy was ever disappointed, saying:
“Mr. Lauren has only ever been enthusiastic about attending the event.”
The Royal Marsden hospital added:
“Ralph Lauren made a generous donation to the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, towards the Ralph Lauren Centre for Breast Cancer Research and the gala dinner event at Windsor Castle.”
So while it sounds like there may be no hard feelings after all, we do have to wonder why such a “generous” donation wouldn’t warrant the Duchess of Cambridge’s presence. She should’ve at least stopped by to say hi!!
When asked about Kate’s absence, however, the charity simply stated:
“We wouldn’t comment on such things.”
Some speculate that it’s because Prince Willy is tired of his wifey stealing his thunder, but that’s just talk.
The Royal Marsden is HIS charity of choice, not hers! And besides, she has a baby to take care of!
Although, it would’ve been nice to see her there supporting her man…
