Kate Middleton Celebrates Her Bachelorette Party Too!

Following the revelation of Prince William's bachelor party comes news that princess-to-be Kate Middleton also had her bachelorette celebration, what the Brits call a "hen party."

Though -- like Prince William's bash -- official details on that party are scarce, a source who was there confirmed to People that Kate did indeed have a bachelorette party.

Kate's sister and maid of honor, Pippa, 27, organized the soiree, which she went to great lengths to keep secret, including booking four London venues to throw off nosy types. But all that may have been a decoy, as the event reportedly took place at a friend's home, according to London newspaper The Telegraph.

Among the presumed guests at the hen party, according to People, were Princess Beatrice, the elder daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson, close pals Alicia Fox-Pitt, a former classmate from Marlborough, Emilia D'Erlanger, and Rose Astor, who is the wife of one of William's old friends, Hugh van Cutsem. The Telegraph also speculates that revelers included friend Olivia Bleasdale, who shared an apartment with Kate and the Prince at St Andrews University in Scotland; Astrid Harbord, who was once romantically linked to Prince Harry; and Alice Hadden-Paton, who is married to van Cutsem’s younger brother, Nicholas.

If past behavior is any indication, it's likely that Kate didn't drink to excess or take part in typical bachelorette party antics. "Kate's very well-aware the spotlight is on her," British society wedding planner Sarah Haywood tells People. "The slightest slip-up wouldn't go down well."
