Kate Middleton's Cheap Hair Clips Aren't Fit for a Princess (PHOTO)

Prince William, AKA "The Non-Naked/Genital-Cupping Prince," and Kate Middleton are currently in Singapore for their Southeast Asian and Pacific tour honoring Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee -- which has been going on forever. Wills looked dashing in some clothes and a tie, and Kate -- ah, Kate. She looked gorgeous as usual in a cream Jenny Packham kimono-style dress. Her skin was glowing, her makeup was flawless, and her hair ... was held back by those little claw-like hair clips that we all use to pin back our bangs when we're washing our faces. That's not very royal.

You know the kind I'm talking about, right? Those little packs of clips you pick up at Target or Walgreens or when you're about to check out at the grocery store.







These bad boys:

clipsI mean, personally, I think they're great. I wear them all the time. But ... I'm sitting behind a computer 200 hours a day. Who gives a crap what my rat's nest of hair looks like? I'm kind of surprised Kate's "hair people" didn't, I don't know, twist her tendrils into a flower or something, and pin them back that way? A mini claw-clip -- that's so "just like us."

But, of course, this is one of the reasons we love the Duchess so much. Despite living in a palace with a prince and royal subjects, she repeats outfits, does her own makeup, and wears 99-cent hair clips to events during a royal tour. I mean, seriously, how can you not like this woman?

Do you wear these hair clips to "fancy" events ever?

Juat because she is married to Prince William, does not make her any better than anyone else-in fact it is kind of refreshing to see that she is not snobbish about her appearance.

Yes I do, it looks better than using a gnarly elastic and gives a softer look. Not all of us have thin and straight hair that can be held back by bobby pins.

News flash...KATE IS A HUMAN BEING. She is exactly like you and I. She brushes her teeth, cleans her ears, showers and even *GASP* farts!

I wish society would stop worshipping people. It is pathetic!

Do you have any idea how hot and humid it was that day? Her hair looks absolutely stunning considering. Mine would look like a ball of frizz no matter what I did to it in that weather. I'm surprised she didn't keel over in that dress, I know people who were in that crowd and they were almost fainting even though they're used to the climate and they were dressed appropriately.

Slow news day? We have resorted to talking about how Kate clips her hair? Seriously??
