Hold onto your bowler hat and try not to spit out that cup of English breakfast tea with milk and an extra lump of sugar (You crazy party animal!) that you’re currently sipping. This weekend in the Swiss Alps, pregnant Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton walked around in the snow without a coat!
I’ll let you clean off your computer screen (I told you not to spit out your tea!) before I give you the details. Ready? Put that scone down and listen to me! Kate was on a ski trip with her husband Prince William and her brother-in-law Prince Harry on Sunday when the incident occurred. I know what you’re thinking: Why wasn’t Harry the one showing bare skin in the blistering cold? The only explanation I can come up with is that it was some kind of Opposite Day in Switzerland on Sunday and Kate Middleton is so polite that she felt obligated to celebrate. Meanwhile, I can only imagine that Harry was wearing a sensible wrap dress back at the cabin.
And even more shocking? Kate didn’t accidentally leave her coat behind or have it plucked from her body by a group of beautiful animated birds who wanted to patch up a hole in the pocket before she set out on her skiing adventure. (I know, that was my first assumption, too.) Kate was just walking around with the coat in her hand and her bare arms exposed to the elements, like nothing was weird about it. See the terrifying photo here.
There’s no word yet on whether Kate and the coat were in a feud, but I’m sure the British media will be on top of things ASAP. Of course, if Kate and the coat weren’t getting along, I’m sure the Swiss never intervened, since they’re “neutral” and all. Look, when Kate Middleton is in a feud with a coat, you side with Kate Middleton and you take the coat to clothing jail, where it’s forced to share a cell with that shoe that hit Harry Styles in the crotch last week.
Making things even more confusing, Kate was in Switzerland to attend her friends’ wedding, where she was bundled up in all kinds of cold weather items, coat included. She was holding her gloves in her hand, however, so maybe they were somehow involved in the coat’s betrayal.
It’s obvious that this coatless Kate Middleton sighting will become the new Bigfoot spotting for the Swiss. Everyone will be saying, “It’s a hoax! I refuse to believe it!” But maybe it’s just that Kate Middleton is so fabulous the snow warmed itself up, and she was just feeling a bit hot. Yeah, I’m sure that’s it.
