Kate Middleton's New Home Is Cursed (PHOTOS)

Kate Middleton Prince WilliamHaving visited England twice, I felt like almost everything there had hundreds, if not thousands, of years of history behind it. American landmarks seem almost infantile compared to some of the sights in and outside of London. And that's really cool. But it doesn't make it any less creepy that the 320-year-old place Kate Middleton and Prince William plan to live in, Kensington Palace, is clearly CURSED.

The chief curator at the Historic Royal Palaces, Lucy Worsley, even said recently that at least seven princesses associated with Kensington were either "sad, bad, or even mad." Sounds like a nursery rhyme, but one of those creepy ones with disturbing origins, like "Ring Around the Rosie." It also makes you think, what the heck has the royal couple gotten themselves into?!

Need proof that Kensington has bad juju? When Queen Mary moved in with her hubs William III around 1690, she contracted small pox within A WEEK and died at the age of 32! Mary's sister Anne moved in then, and proceeded to have 17 pregnancies in an attempt to provide an heir to the throne, but none of the kids made it to adulthood. More recently, in the 20th century, Wills' great-aunt Princess Margaret lived there, only to see her marriage fall apart. His mother Diana lived there, and we all know how her life path turned out.

But these horrible stories that played out at Kensington seem to be just the TIP of this terrifying iceberg. There's even said to be a ghost, some mysterious woman in blue. Eeek!

I'm sure William has warm memories of people leaving tons of flowers and cards at Kensington when his mother passed, and that probably has something to do with why they've chosen to live there. But the stories of the palace's past are just crazy, right?? I definitely believe homes can house scary, disturbing, depressing, unnerving energy, and this seems like the ultimate case in point.

If I was Kate, I would want to stay as FAR away from Kensington as I possibly could -- unless, of course, I had some kind of twisted wish to lead a tragic life. Obviously, we know that's not the case, and the whole world is rooting for these two to be an international golden couple for decades to come. If they have any hope of making that dream a reality, they really must start considering shopping around for somewhere else to live!

Do you believe homes can be cursed?
