13 Kate Mid­dle­tons gather at the palace

The Washington Post Sunday - - ON LOVE -

LONDON — With 100 days to go be­fore the royal wed­ding, 13 young women de­cided to mark the oc­ca­sion by dress­ing as Kate Mid­dle­ton and gath­er­ing at the gates out­side Buck­ing­ham Palace last week.

The unan­nounced ar­rival of the wannabes wear­ing iden­ti­cal copies of the dark blue dress Mid­dle­ton wore when her en­gage­ment to Prince Wil­liam was re­vealed gave tourists a jolt Wed­nes­day. Their “Kate look” in­cluded repli­cas of her di­a­mond and sap­phire en­gage­ment ring.

The women are stu­dents at the Royal Col­lege of Art in London who clearly en­joy mak­ing a splash.

Bri­onyClarke, 29, re­main­ing in char­ac­ter as Mid­dle­ton, said: “I thought it was time I got with my peo­ple.”

The stu­dents got the at­ten­tion they wanted, but Mid­dle­ton has the prince.
