Duchess Kate Went on a ‘hen Party’ Ski Trip the Same Weekend as William

Posted on the 03 April 2017 by Sumithardia

Prince William and Kate didn’t have any royal events this weekend, which sucks because gossip is so dead and I really need some new photos of Kate-in-a-hat or William’s moose knuckle. Will and Kate did go out this weekend though – they attended a private get-together at Pippa’s new home in South Kensington. And when I say Pippa’s home, I mean Terribly Rich James Matthews’ home, which is where Pippa lives. Pippa moved in with Terribly Rich James last year. They will be married in a little more than a month, and so Terribly Rich and Pippa hosted a little get-together for their families to meet. James’ parents and siblings were there, and the whole Middleton clan was there too: Carole, Michael, James Middleton, Kate and William (Bill Middleton!). William wore jeans (how informal!) and Kate wore a new Alice Temperley dress.

Speaking of Terribly Rich James and Pippa’s May wedding, did you know that Pippa has already done her “hen party”? That’s Brit-speak for bachelorette party. According to the Sun, Pippa slipped away to Meribel, France for a long ski weekend. Kate was there too. Guess when it happened? The SAME weekend that William was in Verbier, Switzerland with his “lads.” And thus ends the mystery of what Kate was up to that weekend.
The Duchess of Cambridge went on sister Pippa’s secret skiing hen do — on the same weekend husband Wills was away partying with his pals in the Alps. The two groups even shared the same private jet as they hit the slopes last month. But while the Duke’s gang headed for Verbier in Switzerland, Kate and Pippa were around 100 miles away in Meribel, France.
A friend told The Sun: “Pippa loves skiing so it was her first choice for a hen weekend. They stayed in a really exclusive catered chalet with maids and chef, who ensured that they were totally spoilt. The owners also wanted to impress their royal guests so the girls were showered with gifts. They were given Swatch watches, Ugg slippers, leather-bound notebooks and bespoke fragrances. It was a very small, private party and they had an amazing time.”
The private jet was paid for by the Middletons ahead of 33-year-old Pippa’s wedding next month to tycoon James Matthews, 41. Prince William, 34, was heavily criticised for missing the Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey on March 13.

Surely we should criticize Kate the same way too? I mean, she wasn’t even stuck at home with the kids! I assume Grandma Carole watched the kids while William and Kate flew off for their separate holidays. I assume it would have been too much to ask for William to spend a weekend alone with his children rather than use his sister-in-law’s hen party as an excuse to jet off and party with the “lads”? While I’m more understanding of Kate’s reasoning – Pippa is her only sister and presumably this will be Pippa’s only hen party – the fact is that both Will and Kate probably should have made the effort to come back for Commonwealth Day. Although I guess I have to give some props to Kate – she kept this information locked down while William’s trip because public and messy almost immediately afterwards.
