There have been rumors swirling around since she first urinated on a stick, but now they seem to be coming to fruition. Vanity Fair is reporting that Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, will be having the first-ever royal baby shower. And the details of the affair will flat-out shock you.
(No, really. They will. Kate's doing something you'd never expect.)
A friend of the Duchess' said of the baby shower: "No, it isn’t royal tradition but Kate isn’t a traditional Royal." Kate, who reportedly got the blessing of the Queen, will supposedly have a pacifier-shaped cake made by brother James at the event. And lucky guests of the event will leave with high-end goodie bags, stocked with items from Jo Malone and the White Market. (Can I come?)
To me, the most surprising thing about Kate's baby shower isn't the fact that, well, she's having a baby shower. It's the fact that she's supposedly having a pacifier-shaped cake. I mean, it seems so ... common. Don't get me wrong, it's adorable, but it's kind of hard to imagine the future Queen of England slivering off a piece of the nipple and digging in, no?
I'm sure the affair will be as elegant as they come, so I'm glad Kate is having at least one quintessential baby shower aspect to the day. I love stylish affairs and fine goods just as much as the next gal, but I think having something silly and "babyish" at a shower is fun, and it differentiates it from any other party. Be it a cutesy-shaped cake or a silly game, I say go for it, Kate. And for the love of sweet baby Jesus, please take photos. Please.
What was your baby shower like?
