There were reports of Kate Middleton being catcalled while on an official visit to Cornwall last week. The reports seem to be completely baseless.
When a construction worker took a selfie featuring Kate and her husband Prince William, there were speculations that the royal was greeted during a visit to a charity by catcalls.
The builder in question is Sam Wayne, a huge royal fan. A selfie that he posted on his social media shows a laughing Duchess of Cambridge and Duke on the background. The picture went viral as soon as he shared it.
Metro News Canada alleged that Kate was catcalled by the construction works for her sexy and short dress. “I did not hear any wolf whistling — a few of the builders said she was looking hot — but everyone was very respectful,” said Wayne in an interview with Express UK on Friday.
Wayne who took a selfie with Prince Charles in 2014 said that though he loves his five minutes of fame, he said the speculations were based on a “stereotype of builders and scaffolders.”
He said that he found it ridiculous that news about the selfie created so many furores all over the media. The builder said he is cheeky and it was fun, but he found the rumors to be “odd.”
The Duke and Duchess were on a two-day visit to Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. There is a new report that Kate and William looked disinterested during an engagement to meet with children taking part in the Wave Project, CDL reports.
The royal couple have taken up a host of engagements after a lavish vacation to France in July. The part-time royals are reportedly trying hard to shed their “work-shy” image.
According to royal watchers, Kate Middleton and William are known for having two stiff upper lips with their high-end demands and expectations wherever they go. The couples alleged “snob“attitude coupled with their body language and awkward posing worked in the negative for them.
We've had a wonderful time exploring #Cornwall today!
Looking forward to visiting the Isles of Scilly tomorrow… pic.twitter.com/53snUh8kZT
