The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are no strangers to asinine rumors, whether it's about Catherine's womb, the British throne or her shopping habits. This new one, however, is so silly that it must be called out.
Celebrity Dirty Laundry, a gossip site that literally makes up its own sources and quotes, is reporting that Catherine is hiding her "true feelings" about Prince William, and feels trapped in her royal marriage:
"Many believe that she’s apparently been hiding her own feelings about her marriage to Prince William for years now. In fact, earlier reports indicate that Kate has been feeling trapped by the royal family for years now. Many insiders have noticed that Kate loves to talk about her loving, warm and caring Middleton family. She even surprised the public when she insisted on spending Christmas last December with the Middleton family rather than Queen Elizabeth and the royals."
The story accused Catherine of being a hypocrite, since she, William and Harry are working publicly to remove the stigma of mental health.
“Kate is advocating for better mental health awareness when she might be easily hiding some problems of her own," CDL claims. "She won’t be able to hide her anxiety and sadness forever.
"Is she desperate to tell someone about her own miserable feelings about her life?”
It's a weird story to make up, but we're guessing it came about because the royal trio promoted Children's Mental Health Week in the U.K. While accredited outlets were reporting on the events, Celebrity Dirty Laundry must have been flipping through photos. When they came upon one of Catherine looking serious they thought, "She looks troubled. I bet she feels trapped in her marriage."
Investigative journalism at its finest, folks.
