Duchess Kate craves chocolate, cake & she’s allegedly doing prenatal yoga

As we discussed yesterday, Duchess Kate is the cover girl on this week’s Us Weekly. It’s all about her pregnancy secrets or whatever. Us Weekly claims that Kate and William do know the sex of the baby but they’re only telling his dad and her parents, and if it’s a girl they already have a name picked out: Elizabeth Diana Carole. Us Weekly also says that Will and Kate have nicknamed the fetus “our little grape”. Which is cute. Personally, I would be interested in hearing about some of speculation and wrangling behind-the-scenes as to the heir’s title. Obviously, many of you know much more about titles and peerages and all of that, so correct me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t the Queen decide what title this child will have? Will she be Princess Elizabeth Diana Carole? Or will the “princess” title come later? And if the baby is a princess, does that mean Kate’s title will be upgraded too?

Anyway, there are more details from Us Weekly’s cover story – stuff about what food Kate is craving and how she’s changed her workouts:

Even though Kate Middleton is nearly halfway through her pregnancy, she is still skinny — but like most pregnant women, she has been eating some tasty treats to satisfy her cravings! So what does a Duchess, who could eat anything she wants, crave exactly?

“She’s got sugar on the brain,” a source close to the mom-to-be tells Us Weekly. “Chocolates, biscuits, cake.” And while she sneaks off to a nearby Starbucks for a cup of decaf coffee, she’ll sometimes pick up a baked good!

Kate Middleton is doing everything in her power to make sure that the unborn royal baby is as healthy as possible, which has led to the Duchess of Cambridge reading as many parenting books as possible. This research has pushed Kate to alter her typical workout routine of strenuous cardio for something a bit easier on the baby, according to a new report!

A source close to Kate, 31, tells Us Weekly that her old routine of hiking and running has been swapped out for prenatal yoga. “Kate has a yoga instructor visit her at the palace,” the source says, adding that she still goes for long walks a handful of times a week “Just to increase her heart rate a little.”

The research that led Kate to this new workout routine stems from a desire to be as in control with her pregnancy as possible. “She’s been reading as much as possible,” the source tells the publication, “from how to be a good parent to how to stay healthy for the baby.” She’s reportedly receiving deliveries from Amazon almost on the daily! “It’s probably her favorite shop in the world,” the source adds. “She buys a lot!”

I can feel Gwyneth Paltrow judging Kate from here. Goop would probably say that if Kate is craving sugar, that means you should completely cut out all sugars, even the sugars found in fresh fruit. Goop’s policy is to deny your body’s cravings at all times! As for the walking… I’m a big fan of walking. I know that sounds “basic” of me, but I wish more people would stop with the trendy workout plans and just walk several miles a day. So I’m with Kate on that one. Prenatal yoga also sounds like a good idea, although I’m not sure that I buy it for Kate. She just doesn’t seem like a yoga-type person to me.

    A few years ago I lost 30lbs by walking 4 miles a day (an hour) without changing my eating. I need to get back into that habit. Huge advocate!

  2. berry says:

    I like the last bit in that article “she buys a lot!” sums up Kate perfectly for me.

  3. Amelia says:

    Because the baby is being born into the Royal Family, I’m fairly certain that Prince/Princess is automatically given to them.
    Eg: Princess Beatrice. Even though Fergie wasn’t Royal, Andrew was.

  4. GoodCapon says:

    I know the Daily Mail makes up stories 99% of the time but I’d rather believe them when it comes to royal stuff than US tabloids. Some of the Mail writers are close to the royals and get first-hand info from them.

  5. Ms Kay says:

    Well…. I guess lavender biscuits are off the hook?

    And indeed walking is good. My mother practices it, definitely helped her a lot during her stroke recovery, she gained back at least 90% of her mobility.

    And side note, when I read GOOP I feel *exactly* like she felt in that spring of 2011 : going to faint, not forming thoughts correctly, searing pain in my head, can’t speak nor breathe breathe, having a stroke.

  6. JenD says:

    I bought a prenatal yoga video. So I’m halfway there. :-)

  7. Merritt says:

    Apparently the Queen has issued Letters Patent, that decree Kate and William’s child will be a Prince or Princess.

  8. ds says:

    I feel bad when I can’t walk…it’s healthy and the best way to stay fit. Today is a bad day since snow decided to fall again and I just got used to my walking season.

  9. Penny says:

    She is so fake in every photo.

    And I can’t get past the wiglet.

    • Red Snapper says:

      What happened to her bangs? Seriously they just disappeared! Can anyone who knows about hair explain please?

      • Alexandra Bananarama says:

        It looks like she’s added extensions to blend in the bangs. They did disappear rather quickly. The rumors go that she had more of a weave before (extensions braided in). Then after she got pregnant for a more comfortable look she got those removed and had a wiglet and extensions. Both the wiglet and the extensions can be bonded to the scalp or neighboring hair without braiding it in.

        She’s pregnant and her hair will get naturally fuller and healthier, but not to the point where she grows inches in a weeks time.

      • Apples says:

        I did that a few years ago. Luckily, I hadn’t cut too much hair for the bangs. My hair grow quickly and I just bobby pinned them right by hairline, above my ear. I let the rest of my hair fall forward over it. It ends up looking like you have your hair tucked behind your ear. In the pictures above, I looks like she’s doing same thing.

      • Ragamuffin says:

        Apples

        Her hair isn’t pinned. If you look at the photos of the event her hair from the start is free hanging. She sweeps it behind her ear later on.
        Compared with the event when she wore the green sleeved 80′s dress a few weeks ago the bangs were new. They were also thicker. Now they’re so blended in they look almost lost in more hair. Maybe she just regretted them and wanted them gone faster with some extensions? She has the money and the time for it

  10. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    They told her parents and his father. Does the Queen hear this all 2nd hand? And correct me if i’m wrong, but aren’t Diana’s parents alive? Do they or her siblings have any relationship with William?

  11. m says:

    Their kid will be a prince/ss, Kate can never be a princess.

    • vava says:

      Actually Kate is a princess now: Princess William. That IS one of her titles, even though it’s rarely used.

      • LAK says:

        This is a misconception about ducal titles vs princely titles.

        Ducal titles are actually higher than Princely ones since Princely ones are not in the peerage. Only Exception is POW.

        Kate was made a Duchess. That is her highest title. We may call her Princess William because she married a Prince, but that isn’t his highest title. The Dukedom is.

        At best, her ‘princesshood’ is only there by marriage rather than right or blood. It disappears in the event of a divorce. She will always be The Duchess of Cambridge whatever the state of her marriage, until she is elevated to POW/Queen consort.

        Princess Michael of Kent is thus called because her husband has no other title, and isn’t a peer. And we always use the husband’s highest title.

        The ‘princ[ess]‘ part of the title is there to denote a son/grandson of the monarch. It isn’t a peerage title.

        Only Princess Alice was given a ‘princess’ title in her own right without having that blood connection and that was the only time it has been granted.

        no one else.

  12. Kristen says:

    I’m so jealous. I want this woman’s life.

    • Miss South Africa says:

      Be careful of what you wish for babe, not everything that gliters is gold

    • bluhare says:

      Listen to Miss South Africa. Do you want a husband who puts his needs/wants above yours, thinks that you should do whatever he wants, and never spends any time with you?

      • WendyNerd says:

        You know, every so often, I’m like, “You know it wouldn’t be bad to be her or be a Princess. I’d get to travel a lot, meet lots of interesting people, see interesting things, lots of money, nice clothes and jewelry, would never have to wash a dish again…”

        Then I remember that monarchy is bullshit, I would always be looked down upon in this new social sphere by others for being American, or of lower status, being a commoner or some shit, that I’d most likely have selfish, philandering cockcheese for a husband, would still ave to bow/curtsy to a ton of people, would most likely never get to spend a Christmas with my family again, be pressured to be insanely thin, always have people writing crazy crap about you, have a great deal of my life controlled by the remains of an archaic institution, would never be able to pursue the type of career I’d want, wouldn’t be able to curse, would have to deal with tons of people acting strange around me, never knowing who my true friends are, would have far less freedom, be reduced to some sort of uteris with legs in many peoples’ eyes, and I’d probably have to change my name and alter my whole identity/way of life to suit others needs in a way that doesn’t really benefit anyone in any significant way. I’d just become another faceless clothes hanger in an old, outdated and pointless system and be expected to be a Stepford wife instead of who I really am.”

        So yeah, then being a Princess loses it’s appeal in a pretty significant manner.

    • Merritt says:

      I don’t want her life, but I wouldn’t mind having some of her coats.

      While we’re cherry picking, I’ll take some of the real estate and free time.

  13. MinnFinn says:

    Kate doing everything in her power to ensure a healthy baby?? Ohhhh so that explains why she was smoking last September even though trying to conceive.

    (Closer magazine said when they put out the top/bottomeless photos they also had pics of her smoking but chose not to publish them.)

    As for her sweets cravings, they aren’t new, could be more intense though. About the time of her wedding her village grocer said she loved Haribo.

  14. kate says:

    The child will be called either
    princess name of cambridge
    or prince name of cambridge

    just a princess beatrice is called princess beatrice of york and her mother and father are the duke and duchess of york

    • Apples says:

      Isn’t/why isn’t Princess Beatrice’s father called Prince…of whatever rather than Duke of York? Wouldn’t the Prince title be preferred? I also don’t understand why Kate isn’t called a princess when she married a prince, especially as he is the heir. But, she does technically have a Princess title: Princess of William. Right?

      • LAK says:

        Apples – please see my answer to @Vava to answer part of your question.

        Princ[ess] is meaningless in the peerage in Britain. It only denotes a son/grandson of the monarch which is meaningless to the Peerage. A person can be a prince and not be a peer e.g Prince Michael of Kent and Prince Harry. Ducal peerage titles are seen as higher status so that when the various Princes are made peers, they become known by their peerage titles over their princely ones ie Prince Andrew is better known as The Duke of York or Prince Edward known as The Earl of Wessex. Ditto Prince Eward better known as Duke of Kent.

        Over time, William will be referred to as The Duke of Cambridge over his princely title until he becomes POW.

        POW/HM are special category titles that denote the heir/monarch respectively. However, they come with an automatic peerage Duke of Cornwall/Lancaster. It’s the only 2 situations where the princely title trumps a ducal one.

      • Apples says:

        LAK,
        Thank you for such an amazingly considered response. The info on peerage titles shocked me and answered a lot for me. I always read and enjoy your posts! Thx

      • WendyNerd says:

        Thanks, LAK, I didn’t realize Ducal titles were of higher status. But my question is, even if they are of higher status, the lower status styles/titles still count as part of the person’s identity, don’t they? So even if she is Duchess, first, she’s still a princess technically, isn’t she? Even if she isn’t a Princess of the blood.?

      • LAK says:

        @wendynerd – in British law, there is no such thing as Princess by marriage. Princess Michael of Kent uses that style, but she’s not a princess. Her sister in law, The Duchess of Kent is also not a princess despite marrying Prince Edward, Duke of Kent.

        Princess by Marriage exists for European Royals so CP Mary/Letizia/Merit/Maxima are all princesses by virtue of marrying princes and their rules declare it so.

        We don’t have that in Britain.

      • WendyNerd says:

        LAK— Okay, thanks! I got a little confused partly because I thought Princess Alice was considered a Princess totally. Thanks for clearing that up!

  15. LAK says:

    Kate isn’t a princess and will never be one. Her title changes depend on William’s title changes rather than her children unless she outlives him long enough to become the Queen mother. Assuming that she remains married to William. She’ll be like Victoria’s mother who was a Duchess all her life, even when Victoria was crowned.

    Kate’s children will be Princ(ess)because The Queen just issued new letters (or made an amendment to the old ones) that say that ALL the kids of the heir’s eldest son will be Prince(ss).

    It irks that the new law passing through parliament is still not through enough to take into account the system that favours the male and the queen or her advisors did clarify it. Look at these new letters, it doesn’t address the gender issue so if we find ourselves with a female eldest child, they will have to write new letters.

    Ditto the peerage law hasn’t been addressed so if Kate has a girl, she’ll inherit the throne per the new changes, but she has no rights to duchy of cornwall, and the Scottish and Irish duchies that go along with her position.

    Ditto the religion mess. It’s so stupid to change laws to suit a trend, but then half a$$ it so it’s pretty pointless.

    On a gossip note, there has been a rumour for years that Pippa’s phone or camera were stolen from her car with pictures of Kate doing naked yoga so perhaps she’s more of a yoga person than we know.

    • WendyNerd says:

      I was under the impression that when Charles becomes King, she’d be Catherine, Princess of Wales in relation to William being Prince of Wales, that she would likely be Princess Consort/Queen Consort when he becomes King if they’re still married and that her full style/title now is HRH Princess William, Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus. I know her being princess is dependent on her being married to William and his titles and that she is not a Princess in her own right, but I was under the impression that she is still Princess by marriage and that counts as being a Princess anyway. She is not Princess Catherine now, but won’t she be when Charles is King?

      I know that when Fergie was married to Andrew, she was Princess Andrew, Duchess of York, etc, technically, though she was still just called Sarah Duchess of York or Duchess Sarah the way Kate is just called Catherine Duchess of Cambridge/Duchess Catherine, etc, and that didn’t change when her daughters were born, so I strongly doubt Catherine’s titles/styles will change until Charles is King.

      Or am I wrong and simply having “Princess” in your style/name still doesn’t make you princess? I’m a bit confused because isn’t Princess Michael of Kent a Princess? (I know she was of noble blood and her maternal grandmother was a Princess, but don’t you have to be a direct male line descendent of a monarch to technically be a Princess by blood). Wasn’t Diana technically a Princess?

    • WendyNerd says:

      Also, not trying to argue, I believe that Victoria’s mother actually was a Princess, technically though she was officially always called The Duchess of Kent. She was Princess of Saxe-Coburg and Saalfield, though she was formerly known as Duchess of Kent. A big part of that, I believe, was because she was married to Princes Edward, the Duke of Kent, who was the fourth son of George III and was never expected to be King or have heirs who would be King. He was fourth in line and died way before it became clear his older brother the Duke of Clarence would not be having any legitimate children. He never became a major heir during his life and that was why his wife was always titled as Duchess since her title depended on a change in his title, which never happened. I’m pretty sure her always being called Duchess had more to do with her husband dying before a major change in official status, especially as he was always an Heir Presumptive at best, never an Heir Apparent. Kate’s married to the future Heir Apparent, and so I think it’s different for her, especially if she stays married to William until his death.

      I could be totally wrong, but that’s what I thought. Please correct me if I’m wrong. I’m sure your information is better than mine. I’d just like to know on what point I’m mistaken.

      • Another K says:

        LAK and WendyNerd: I would just love to sit and listen to you two discuss British Royal history. This is better than a university class. I mean that sincerely!

      • LAK says:

        @wendynerd – Being BORN a princess is what matters. All you said about Duchess of Kent is true however she was never called a princess even when it became clear that Victoria was the heir.

        In British law, the British title is considered higher than the foreign titles so DoK she remained.

        Princess Michael of Kent confuses people who them apply her special circumstances across the board. Women are accorded their husband’ highest title. She is married to a man whose highest title is ‘Prince’ so she is styled princess. If he had a ducal title, that’s what she would be known as. Look at the duchesses of Gloucester and Kent. They are both married to Princes, but they are both called Duchesses rather than Princesses because that is what they are.

        Kate/Fergie/katherine/sophie etc are married to people whose highest titles are Ducal but also happen to be princes. The Prince part doesn’t make the ladies Princesses which is why it doesn’t stick on divorce. Otherewise fergie would still be Princess Andrew (which she never was). If Kate/Fergie/Katherine/sophie were princesses, the court circular would label them as such because it is a stickler for the correct form, ditto being given out on their marriages that they were princesses but would be using their lesser ducal titles. This is exactly what happened with Camilla. It was made very clear that she IS POW but would be using the lesser title.

        It confusing because people assume that marriage makes one a princess. It does not unless the monarch specifically says that you are.

    This is all utter crap that has clearly been written by an American with an American audience in mind, without much concern for authenticity. Starbucks? Yoga? Amazon? I don’t think so. When have either William or Kate ever released any details about their private life, or been photographed doing anything, that match up with any of this?

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      It’s gossip! Of course it’s not going to be 100% factual. The American media tries to only portray Kate as the 2nd coming of Diana and someone we should adore. NEVER anything negative is printed about her.

      The UK has a fair amount of publications that lack authenticity.

      Often they are photographed (photo ops) doing things that later show up in planted articles. Kate makes sausage, jam, home cooked dinner, walks dog for exercise, etc..
      Kate has been photographed getting Starbucks quite a few times.

      • cheryl says:

        Absolutely!! She is snapped going into a Starbucks and voila, she is having cravings for sweets. They can create a “story” out of the most minor event.

        US Weekly is particularly bad when it comes to this sort of thing. Seriously, what friend/insider of Kate’s is going to confide in a US tabloid?

    • Jessica says:

      She’s been photographed a number of times going into, and coming out of, Starbucks.

    • Zimmer says:

      Could be, but I live in Europe, drink Starbucks, order from Amazon UK and though I don’t do Yoga, there is a Yoga school near my house.

  17. Patrice says:

    “She’s been reading as much as possible,” the source tells the publication, “from how to be a good parent to how to stay healthy for the baby.”

    “…how to be a ‘good’ parent”?? Today’s parents who relentlessly turn to and depend on books written by total strangers to tell them how to raise their own children totally confuse me; no one trusts their own intuition & instincts anymore! Even parenting styles have come down to what the latest “trend” is: Spock; Ferber Method; ‘European’; Attachment; etc.

    I’m not saying that there’s anything wrong with buying lots of books about infant/toddler development & pregnancy while expecting-I love to read myself-but if it eventually turns you into a neurotic mess who crumbles & falls apart when your toddler has a meltdown somewhere because you “left the book at home!” and thus “have no idea what to do” (I’ve seen it happen), then that is a major, MAJOR problem.

    But alas, I’ll digress a bit here: If history is any indication, Kate is going to have plenty of staff in the royal household taking care if the kid(s) 24/7 anyway (Diana was a rare, hands on exception and in her own words in countless interviews, the palace fought her on it just about every step of the way). I really don’t think Waity would EVER have a problem with people telling her to do less! :D

    • LAK says:

      Diana wasn’t as hands on as she liked to portray herself. The ever present nannies were cropped out of pap pictures. or kept behind closed doors when photo ops were arranged. Those nannies were present even when she was doing school runs.

      The difference between her style of parenting and the palace was that she was very present in her children’s lives. However, as they grew older, she reverted to the stereotypical upbringing of the Aristo class i.e. boarding school by age 7yrs old.

  18. WendyNerd says:

    According to a declaration by the Queen, the first Child of Will & Kate while she is still Queen will be HRH The Prince or Princess of Cambridge. All children after that while the Queen is still alive will be called Lord or Lady X of Cambridge (not sure if the younger kids will get an HRH as well until the Queen dies, but I know Prince Edward’s kids don’t have an HRH, but then, they’re not direct heirs).

    The recent movement to change the British Monarchy’s inheritance system from Male-Preference Cognatic Primogeniture (Where the oldest male inherits over any older sisters they might have) to Absolute Cognatic Primogeniture (Where the eldest child inherits regardless of gender) affected this a great deal. Under the old, Male-Preference system, if the eldest child was a girl, she would just be Lady X of Cambridge while if the first child was a male, he would automatically be Prince of Cambridge, since under the old system, a boy would be Heir Apparent (AKA has a solid, immovable place in line to the throne that cannot be change by the birth of another and will definitely be inheriting the throne unless they abdicate or die prior to inheritance) whereas a girl would just be Heir Presumptive (AKA Their place in line to the throne can be changed by the birth of another and will only end up becoming King/Queen as long as a child of greater priority is born. There are a number of ways someone can be an Heir Presumptive. Either they are a female direct heir-line descendent in a male preference inheritance system and therefore only heir until a younger brother comes along. Or they can be heir to a throne held by an Uncle/Aunt/Cousin or some other type of relative and would be instantly replaced the second that monarch has a legitimate child/grandchild that is qualified by law to be heir. For instance, Queen Victoria was Heiress Presumptive before she became Queen to her Uncles, George IV and William IV because they had no surviving legitimate children. The second either of them had a legitimate child, she would have ceased to be a likely heir). Since the line by the generation of Will & Kate’s kid is so far down the line, only an Heir Apparent would be entitled to the title of Prince or Princess as long as the Queen is on the throne and a Heiress Presumptive would only be entitled to the title of Lord or Lady. So, an eldest son would get to be a prince whereas an eldest daughter would only be a lady. But, since the law is changing, the first child is Heir Apparent automatically regardless of gender and they will be titled Prince/Princess of Cambridge. Even though the new inheritance law to my knowledge hasn’t finished being passed yet (though it most definitely will), the Queen has control of royal titles and has declared that the first child will be Prince/Princess as an act declaring her support of the new law, and to designate the fetus as an intended Heir Apparent even if the stone-cold legality of it isn’t official quite yet.

    It might be that should the first child be a girl and that she has a brother later on, his title will be Lord of Cambridge while the Queen is still Queen and he will be also titled as Viscount Something-or-Other in relation to William’s title as Earl of Strathearn (or maybe the new inheritance laws would simply make his older sister also Viscountess Something-Or-Other instead). Any younger sisters and younger brothers after the first brother would simply be Lord or Lady of Cambridge.

    When Charles becomes King, everyone in William’s family will be “upped”, so to speak, in titles and rank. William wil be William, Prince of Wales; Waity will be Catherine, Princess of Wales; the kids will be Prince/Princess X of Wales. I don’t think an eldest daughter will be upped to title of Princess Royal as long as Princess Anne and/or Charles are still alive, but I could be wrong about that. If Princess Anne is still alive when William becomes King, they may make up a new title for an eldest girl, or maybe they’d share the Princess Royal title, but I could be wrong. Any experts want to help me out?

    How the Hell do I remember all this?

      WendyNerd

      1. Is that a copy and paste job? Because that’s a whole lot of thumb typing if it isn’t!
      2. Do you need to remember all of this?

      • WendyNerd says:

        I actually did type all that out.

        I actually have a weird memory of all sort of crazy crap. Stuff I do need to remember and stuff I don’t. I don’t really need to remember it, but I do and it’s fun to know. There are a few subjects I know more about than I need to or should know (italian exploitation cinema, celebrity gossip, Beatles and Fleetwood Mac trivia, stuff like that) And as long as my grades stay high, I don’t feel much guilt about filling my head with a bunch of random stuff. I know about all sorts of things I might not need, but like to know. I actually went through a big history of the British monarchy phase when I was younger, that’s where it comes from.

        I read a lot and I retain a lot and I’ve always been fascinated by history and politics.

        Also, I write and type insanely fast. It took me about ten-fifteen minutes to write and proofread all that.

      • WendyNerd says:

        Wow, thank you, though I’m actually much smarter on paper than I am in person. I have the street smarts of a seven year old.

        I’m actually an English major with a Creative Writing concentration.

    • LAK says:

      @Wendynerd – your brain is exactly the same as mine. I retain the most amazing trivia about whatever extra curricullum fancy and phase I am going through.

      We are spirit animals!!!

      On a different note, what you’ve written is What is laid out by 1917 letters patent. The Queen has made a change so that ALL of William’s kids will have the same style as opposed to only the eldest.

      A title once given can’t be shared or given away whilst the old claimant is still alive. ‘Princess Royal’ is given to monarch’s eldest daughter. Ditto Duke of York to 2nd son of the monarch and POW to heir. That means the Princess Anne will hold that title till death. No sharing. The next ‘Princess Royal’ will be the next monarch’s eldest daughter once Anne has passed away. If Andrew has a son, that son will inherit the Duke of York title. Since he has no sons, the title will revert back to crown on his death to be given to the Monarch’s 2nd son at that point. Which means that it is a certainly that Harry will never be duke of York despite being 2nd son of Charles since those Windsors live such long lives.

      • JulieM says:

        LAK- a question for you about “Princess Royal”. If Willy/Waity’s first child is a girl, will she also be given the title of Princess Royal when Willy takes the throne? She won’t be the Princess of Wales in her own right as heir to the throne. Elizabeth was never styled anything but Princess Elizabeth (and Mrs. Mountbatten) when she was heir to the throne. If W/W have a second girl, do you think she would be given the Princess Royal title?

        I don’t think Waity will be bothered with having a third child. Just the heir and spare.

        Oh- agree with the York title. Harry will never get it; the timing is all off. And Andrew lives a very pampered life. What Dukedom do you think Harry will get?

  19. My2Pence says:

    @ Kaiser re: “She just doesn’t seem like a yoga-type person to me.”

    Years ago (2008? 2009?) rumors were, Pippa left her car unlocked and a camera in the front seat. Camera was stolen and on that camera they allegedly found photos of Kate Middleton in a bikini, doing yoga while on vacation in Mustique. In a shocking twist of what, being nice, the camera was turned in instead of someone selling the photos. Unless they kept copies to make a mint off of later, who knows?

    So possibly Kate Middleton not only does yoga, but allows her sister take photos of it.
