Kim, however, apparently wanted to give the Duchess a piece of the family empire while she was in London promoting her new line for UK retailer Dorothy Perkins. According to the Daily Mail, the reality star sent over a package of gifted duds, only to have the box sent right back. Guess even with Kate’s high-low ethos the Kardashian Kollection doesn’t quite fit in with a wardrobe of Temperley and Alexander McQueen?
Plus, there’s the whole issue of the Duke and Duchess’ standing policy not to accept any unsolicited gifts unless they know the sender personally, no doubt because otherwise they’d end up with a palace full of creepy crafts.
E! News, however, cites a source who denies the whole thing, claiming that “Kim was working the whole time and though she admires Kate, she didn’t reach out to her.” Of course, that doesn’t mean an overeager PR rep didn’t send a box of bodycon over to the Duchess.
