Prince George is not getting a sibling anytime soon.
The future King of England’s mother, Kate Middleton, dispelled pregnancy rumors by taking shots of whiskey with her husband, Prince William, Thursday. The royals toured Scotland’s Glenturret distillery, known for its Famous Grouse whiskey, where the Duke was challenged to try a “wee dram” of 68.9 proof alcohol, straight from the still. “I’ll give anything a go, [but] I will probably regret it later,” he said.
“I’m definitely going for that one,” the 31-year-old Earl of Strathearn added.
“You do like a peaty whiskey, don’t you?” William’s 32-year-old wife said. Middleton looked on as her husband tasted The Black Grouse Alpha. The Duchess was then persuaded to try the “girlie” whiskeys: two weaker blends called The Snow Grouse and The Naked Grouse, both around 40 percent proof.
“Nice,” she said. “I like them.” Moments later, William was handed a shot of 68.9 proof clear alcohol, a challenge he gladly accepted. Shaking his head, the Duke winced and remarked, “That’s pretty busy!”
He offered a sip to his wife, but she told him, “I’ll stick with that girlie one.”
Where did the pregnancy rumors come from anyway?
The June 9 issue of Life & Style cover alleges that Middleton is “98 pounds and pregnant.” Additionally, the June 2 issue of OK! claims that the palace confirmed that she’s pregnant and expecting twin girls.
Given Thursday’s boozy outing, it’s safe to assume the tabloids got it wrong… again.
