Reality TV star Kim Kardashian reportedly sent the Duchess of Cambridge some of her Dorothy Perkins-stocked Kardashian Kollection clothing, only to receive the package straight back with a royal no thank you.
The Kardashian clan (that's Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, aka KKK) have been in town promoting their brand spanking - so-tight-you'll need-spanx-to-wear them - clothing Kollection of late, and it appears they have maximised their marketing strategies while here.
The Los Angeles-based trio, who found fame with their reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians , have reached out to the Duchess of Cambridge in the hope that she might give all that leopard print and bodycon her royal seal of approval.
The curvaceous trio sent the Duchess a selection of the Kollection's keyhole cut-outs, sheer panels and floaty drape sleeve blouses, according to The Daily Mail . And though the Duchess isn't one to shy away from a more risqué outfit, the 30-year-old Royal reportedly sent the package back.
Commenting on the bolshy postal move, an insider told the Daily Star that the Kardashian's "hoped Kate might be seen wearing one of the designs out in public, which would give their fashion credentials a huge boost." Continuing to expand on the sister's global domination strategy, the source clarified: "The Kardashians want to be as big in the UK as they are in America, and think associating themselves with the Royals, especially Kate, will help them achieve that."
A representative of the Duchess noted: "In general terms, the policy of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge is not to accept any unsolicited gifts unless the sender is known personally to His or Her Royal Highness. Any such gifts are returned to the sender with thanks and an explanation of Their Royal Highnesses' policy."
