Kensington Palace has come out and denied rumors Kate Middleton got botox. The speculation began after a U.K. based plastic surgeon shared “before and after” photos of the Duchess on Instagram, detailing the procedures she allegedly received. Dr. Munir Somji, of the Dr. Medi Spa Clinic located in London, has since deleted his post.
“Our Kate loves a bit of baby Botox. Patients come from far and wide to see me for this procedure. It truly is so simple,” Dr. Somji captioned the side by side photos of Kate. “There is no excuse for doctors to leave patients with brows on the floor. 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. The magic of baby Botox is that it does not leave you feeling so heavy and provides you with a subtle reduction of lines as well as a better eyebrow position. Now 90% of my patients have baby Botox and are happy even at 3-4 months post treatment.”
Dr. Somji shared a photo of Kate from 2016 alongside a more recent photo from this year. In the before photo, Kate definitely looks a little worn out, but remember: she’s a busy working royal with three children. Everybody has days where they look a little less polished than normal, even members of the royal family.
According to Page Six, Dr. Medi Spa wouldn’t confirm whether Kate was one of their patients. “We wouldn’t be able to disclose whether she is a client or not,” marketing manager Sammy Curry explained. “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.”
As for why Dr. Somji posted photos of Kate of she’s not a patient? “He thought it was a good comparison picture to use to show the effects of Botox and obviously baby Botox which he does himself,” Curry continued. “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.”
Kensington Palace, on the other hand, said Dr. Somji’s insinuations about the Duchess of Cambridge are “categorically not true” and “in addition, the Royal Family never endorse commercial activity.” So, there you have it. Kate didn’t get botox. Perhaps the more important question is, though, if she did…who cares? Let her live!
Kylie Jenner is making SERIOUS bank off her Instagram posts.
According to Hopper HQ’s list of highest-paid Instagram Stars of 2019, Kylie is earning up to $1.2 million for a single IG post. The 21-year-old billionaire reportedly charges $1,266,000 per post on average, which is nearly $300,000 more than what she was charging in 2018.
While the large figure is enough to make you wish you got on the Instagram game back in high school, it shouldn’t come as a surprise given the fact that Kylie was able to create a billion-dollar business because of her impactful social media influence and dedicated 141 million-plus followers.
Kylie may top the “Instagram Rich List,” but following in a close second is Ariana Grande, who gets $996,000 per post.
