Kate Middleton Is Pregnant? That's News To Fashion Designer Zandra Rhodes

Zandra Rhodes 'did not know' the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant

A British fashion designer has sensationally admitted she was not aware that the Duchess of Cambridge is pregnant.

Zandra Rhodes’ astonishingly unpatriotic comments came as she spoke after she was made a Dame at a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony.

"That is wonderful news," she replied upon being informed of the forthcoming birth.

"I've been in LA and so busy with my collection that I haven't paid it any attention, but I will now," the 74-year-old promised the Press Association.
