Kate keeps hen party a secret
Kate Middleton, like Prince William, has managed to outfox the press. She held her hen party with her closest gal pals totally under the radar. The party was so well handled it’s thought the event occurred even before prince William’s stag over the weekend. It’s likely the event occurred when he was away in Australia or New Zealand earlier in the month.
The event was allegedly held at a friends house and organized by her sister Pippa.
“She has already had her hen night, but it was certainly very low-key,” a close friend of Kate’s told the Daily Telegraph. “There isn’t such a tradition attached to hen nights as there is to stag parties. It was done privately. Not all of Kate’s friends were there, and she will be catching up with other friends over the coming weeks.”
A spokesman for St. James’s Palace confirmed that the party has been held, though would would not disclose any details of the event, saying it was a “private” affair.”
“It has taken place. We are not saying when, or where,” a spokesman told AFP.
Guests probably included Olivia Bleasdale, a flat mate of with Kate and William’s at St. Andrews University; socialite Astrid Harbord (once romantically linked to Prince Harry) ; Alicia Fox-Pitt, a schoolfriend of Kate’s from Marlborough (and a fellow member of the Sisterhood dragon boat crew); Rose Astor, the wife of Prince William’s close friend Hugh van Cutsem (father of William’s god daughter); and Alice Hadden-Paton, married to Mr van Cutsem’s younger brother, Nicholas.
The night isn’t expected to have included much alcohol, as Kate isn’t a big drinker.
