Kim Kardashian and her famous sisters recently launched the Kardashian Kollection at Dorothy Perkins in London, and reportedly send the Duchess of Cambridge a load of free clothing, only to get them send straight back.
According to The Examiner, Kate Middleton politely declined to accept any of the free clothing received from Kim Kardashian.
The Kardashian Kollection features a lot of figure-hugging silhouettes, with leopard print and studs – not exactly appropriate for a member of the Royal family.
A palace insider told the magazine: “Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket.”
The source also said Kim Kardashian invited Kate Middleton over for tea, in an attempt to get a new royal best friend out of her recent trip to London. But once again, the Duchess politely declined the offer.
And another insider explained to the Daily Star earlier this week why Kim Kardashian is so keen on getting closer to Kate Middleton.
“She hoped Kate might be seen wearing one of the designs out in public, which would give their fashion credentials a huge boost,” the source explained.
And a link with the Royal family would have given them the stepping stone they wanted to be big in the UK, the insider continued: “The Kardashians want to be as big in the UK as they are in America, and think associating themselves with the Royals, especially Kate, will help them achieve that.”
Speaking in a recent interview with Now magazine, Kim Kardashian gushed about how much she love’s the Duchess’s fashions style.
“Kate seems like a really sweet person and she’s a princess. We love her sense of fashion. She could wear our looks and team it with one of her hats.”
A representative of Kate Middleton said: “In general terms, the policy of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is not to accept any unsolicited gifts unless the sender is known personally to His or Her Royal Highness. Any such gifts are returned to the sender with thanks and an explanation of Their Royal Highnesses’ policy.”
