Oh no, oh no, oh no.
While visiting a UNICEF center in Denmark, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were offered peanut paste, a common food in packages provided to the hungry in third world countries. (Gross.)
Prince William ate it up, but Catherine refused, sparking speculation that she is pregnant. (Apparently pregnant women should avoid peanuts?) The Palace immediately put out a statement that the Duchess does not have a peanut allergy, which is highly suspect.
If she’s not pregnant, wouldn’t the Palace have denied that, not just a peanut allergy? By putting that out there, it’s like saying, “She could have eaten that high-protein crap jelly, but her palate is too sophisticated.” It’d be a slap in the face to UNICEF, Danes, hungry people, and especially the peanut industry — and those people are ruthless. This is why I don’t do charity work that involves food.
I’ve been trying to prepare myself for this pregnancy, but I fear I’ll never be ready. Thank goodness I had this panic room built.
