Kate Middleton Did Not “Flirt” With Star Tennis Player At Wimbledon, Despite Rumors [Debunked]

Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge reportedly could not contain her attraction for Austrian tennis layer, Dominic Thiem, when she met him at Wimbledon and it “annoyed” Prince William. At least that’s according to a recent article about the young royals in Celeb Dirty Laundry.

According to the article, Kate giggled like a schoolgirl when Thiem asked her if she played tennis.

“Yes, but not to any standard,” she allegedly replied.

The article goes on to allege that Kate has been caught flirting with other men who aren’t her husband. Celeb Dirty Laundry cites Middleton’s previous encounters with Olympic sailor, Sir Ben Ainslie as an example. They say that Kate is “always smiling and trying to get Ben’s attention whenever he’s around” and that it’s a source of conflict between her and Prince William. Celeb Dirty Laundry also claims that the Prince and The Duchess always look distant when they’re together in public which makes Kate’s “flirting” with other men more obvious.

But Gossip Cop, a site that’s become well known for debunking celebrity rumors, claims that the article is short on truth. According to Gossip Cop, Celeb Dirty Laundry did not send any reporters to Wimbledon. So, they couldn’t possibly have any first-hand knowledge about The Duchess’s behavior at the event.

Also, other news publications that reported on the story did not mention that Kate was flirting, Gossip Cop reports.

They also say that Kate’s previous “flirting” with Sir Ben Ainslie is fake news as well.


As for Celeb Dirty Laundry’s claim that Kate and William never show affection in public, it’s against royal protocol to do so. But even with those rules in places, the royal couple has been seen laughing with one another when they’re together, an indication that their relationship is not as frosty as Celeb Dirty Laundry claims it is.


Gossip Cop insists that based on information from their sources, Kate and William’s marriage is as strong as it ever was. Kate’s “flirting” is just her being friendly as she conducts her official duties as The Duchess of Cambridge.

Do you think that the marriage between the young royals is rock solid as Gossip Cop claims? Or is Kate taking her “friendliness” too far. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
