THE princess of American reality TV is getting the royal brush-off from the future Queen of England! During a London trip to promote her clan’s clothing line, KIM KARDASHIAN put word out that she’d like to take tea with Prince William’s wife KATE MIDDLETON, said a source.
But Buckingham Palace sent back a not-so-diplomatic answer – GET REALl!
“Kim wasn’t happy because she’s obsessed with Kate, but the Duchess of Cambridge has no interest in becoming part of the Kardashian publicity machine,” said an insider close to the royal family.
“Kate can’t stand their style, and from what she knows about their TV show, it’s just a bunch of trashy people primping and yelling at each other. She’s far too polite to diss Kim to her face, but she’s got enough on her plate without having tea with someone like her.”
Royalty-crazy Kim headed across the Atlantic with her sister Kourtney for the early November launch of their Kardashian Kollection fashion line. Her beau Kanye West came along, and he encouraged his bootylicious squeeze to contact the duchess, said the source.
“Kanye has met Prince William, who’s a big fan of his music, and he’s become a big fan of Kate too,” said the source. “He’s even suggested to Kim that she could take a leaf out of the royal beauty’s book and tone down her makeup for a more natural look.”
In a bold move, the Kardashian sisters offered Kate free samples from their British line, which includes skintight sequin minidresses, pleather pants, blue leopard-print tops and gold-studded bags, according to the source.
But the Kardashians shouldn’t expect any free publicity from England’s future queen.
“Kate wouldn’t be caught dead in a Kardashian outfit!” sniffed the source.
“The Duchess gets free clothes sent to her every day of the week, and she always sends them back. The royal family is very careful about not being seen to endorse any product. It’s just not proper. Quite apart from that, the Kardashian outfits just aren’t appropriate for a duchess.
“Kate is hardly going to turn up for an event with the queen in a cheap leopard-print miniskirt or gold sequined jacket!”
