Kate Middleton's Bizarre Behavior at Event Gets Everyone Talking

OMG 98

kate middletonI love that this is "news." Did you know? Kate Middleton smiled and twirled her hair at a Remembrance Day ceremony Sunday. (Remembrance Day is basically England's Veterans Day, don't you know.) The royal family laid a wreath, there was a moment of silence, and the whole world gasped as Kate reached up with a gloved hand, grasped a lock of her shiny, be-curled hair, and worked its perfect spiral through her fingers. Primping, at such a solemn occasion! Well I never! But also, note to self: Buy curling iron tomorrow. Such is the power of Duchess Catherine.

But what was Kate thinking? I don't mean that as in "girl, what the hell are you thinking, twirling your hair like that?" I mean literally, what was Kate thinking about at the time? Here are our best guesses.

kate middleton twirling her hair

  1. It's so weird not to have Prince George in my arms right now. I hardly know what to do with my hands!
  2. I whip my hair back and forth/I whip my hair back and forth/I whip my hair back and forth ...
  3. Must remember to occasionally smooth my ringlets as per the royal hairdresser's instructions.
  4. Hmm, HRH William naked this morning, standing in that patch of sunlight by the window in the bathroom, so delicious.
  5. Yes, this navy coat was an excellent choice for my enamel poppy pin. What's the occasion again? So many ceremonies.
  6. Blimey, I need to pump or feed ASAP. About to explode with milk here. Please don't leak, girls!
  7. Michelle Obama ought to give extensions a try. I'm just saying.
  8. La ti da! La ti da.
  9. Am never cutting my hair like Princess Sophie's. Mark my words.
  10. Poor tabloids won't have a thing to write about this week if I don't think of something interesting to do. Um ... think of something interesting to do, think of something interesting to do, hmmm ...
  11. Did I remember to turn off the stove? Oh, silly me. I have servants to take care of that!
  12. Oh God, I have so many names to remember at the reception when this is over. Better go over my list one more time.
  13. Yeah bitchez, I'm twirling my damn hair. Wot ya gonna do, eh?

Do you think Kate had any idea she'd cause such a stir with such a simple gesture?

I'm sure it was just an absent minded gesture. Jeez. I'm glad I am not famous!

Is this seriously news worthy...I mean, I love to see what they're doing and read about them but ...twirling her hair?  Really?  Frankly I find it refreshing that she seems so approachable and unstuffy.

Retha Cornwell

I'm sure she was thinking what a wonderful
husband and son she has,at least she had a smile on her face.let her be she's happy:)

Reta McGuire Disney

For goodness sake leave the women alone surely shes allowed to smile and twirl her hair if she goddamn wants too. Some people have nothing better to do with their lives than find fault with others.

Andrea Kelley

How is it bizarre?! She is normal for being who she is. She isn't stuck up like Hollywood celebs. I like that about her.

i dont think why people mess up with this girl... if you dont have anything to do or anything to look at or talk about then its better to put your mouth where it belongs. stop that bad heart thinking.. shes perfect with her hair like that.

Goodness it's probably just a nervous gesture. I have long hair and I catch myself twirling it with my fingers all the time. She had no telling how many ppl looking at her or in her direction I would be nervous.

Monique Ranger

Just leave the girl alone, she just left her new born son with the nanny and she was surely thinking of him. So what she touched her hair, it is hers to touch...

Dorothy Mudd

it was very disrespectful
