Kate Middleton had to say sorry to a young girl after she was left confused by her outfit choice because it didn’t live up to her expectations about royalty from Disney films Kate Middleton is often commended for her glam outfit choices and stunning accessories, but she once had to apologise for not impressing a three-year-old fan.
The Duchess of Cambridge was hit with an honest observation from a little girl named Annabel, who had assumed that Kate would look like a Disney Princess. Kate was visiting Swansea with Prince William when she had the funny encounter with Rhian Costello and Annabel, who noticed that she didn’t “look like Cinderella” during their exchange in 2020.
Her mother Rhian said she had been anticipating coming face to face with a “real princess” so was left a bit deflated due to Kate not wearing a Disney-inspired gownIt forced Kate to apologise “for not wearing a pretty dress” in a very cute exchange, reports The Mirror. Instead of a glitzy gown, Kate opted for a Hobbs coat, Zara dress and an eye-catching Beulah London scarf.Rhian explained at the time: “My daughter loves fairy tales and Cinderella, and she was really excited to meet a real princess.
“Kate said ‘I’m really sorry I’m not wearing a pretty dress today’ and Annabel said: ‘I thought you’d look like Cinderella’.” But Rhian told the Daily Mail that despite not wearing a big puffy dress, Annabel was “so taken” with the Duchess.She added: “Annabel was so taken with her, she went up and gave her a huge hug and I was extremely surprised that Kate embraced her in such a way.”
