- Kensington Palace has “categorically” denied that Kate Middleton has gotten Botox.
- A before-and-after photo of the Duchess of Cambridge made the rounds on Instagram, prompting speculation.
Today in royal news you never thought you’d be reading, the palace has reportedly denied that Kate Middleton has gotten Botox in her forehead. But let’s back up a second: Why do people even think the Duchess got Botox in the first place, or care whether she has or hasn't received the treatment?
Apparently, British plastic surgeon Munir Somji, MD, of the Dr. Medi Spa Clinic posted a "before and after" picture of Kate’s forehead on July 23, which created some buzz. “Our Kate loves a bit of baby Botox,” he wrote. “Note the reduction of fine lines on the forehead. But also note the depression of the medial (middle part) brow but elevation of the lateral tail of the brow.”
It’s true that Kate looks slightly different in the “after” picture, but it could be the result of makeup. Plus, spokesman for Kensington Palace has denied that she’d had Botox, saying that the Dr. Medi Spa post is “categorically not true” and that “in addition, The Royal Family never endorse commercial activity.”
Meanwhile, Dr. Medi Spa, which is located just ten minutes away from Kensington Palace, refused to confirm or deny that Kate was a patient. “We wouldn’t be able to disclose whether she is a client or not,” said marketing manager Sammy Curry. “We have non-disclosure agreements where we can’t disclose our high-end clients. We absolutely can’t comment at all that she has come to us.”
Oh, and the pics were posted to Instagram because the doctor “thought it was a good comparison picture to use to show the effects of Botox and obviously baby Botox which he does himself. He just wanted to show the transformation that it can create and obviously how it can be used for subtle results and how it’s really good for anti-aging.”
Bold move, Dr. Medi Spa.
