Kate Middleton is one of the most beautiful royals. Last week, a surgeon claimed that the duchess had Botox.

One netizen took to Qoura and asked how Middleton would look like without Botox and spray tans. The question received mixed reactions from other royal fans. Most didn’t believe that the Duchess of Cambridge had Botox.

“I only ever see Kate on tv or magazines I can only guess she has never had botox, rarely if ever had a spray tan and spends less time being groomed for public functions than most Irish millenials (and older) heading out at weekends,” Wendy Tennent, an Ireland resident, wrote.

Meanwhile, Laurie Pettitt, a former self-employed engine builder, believed that even without Botox and spray tan, Middleton is “still better looking” than her. She believes that just like Katherine of Aragon, time will not age nor can death decay Middleton’s beauty.

“Kate will probably be lovely when she is old and wrinkled. Some people are like that,” she added.

Meanwhile, Conni Jurmo questioned the thing about Botox because for him, Middleton is still in her 30s and she looks pretty good at her age without cosmetic help. As for tanning, he said that Middleton would look paler without it.

Last week, Dr. Munic Somji of Dr. Medi Spa Clinic shared two photos of Middleton on Instagram. According to him, it was the duchess’ “before” and “after” photos before she underwent a Botox procedure at their clinic.

He pointed out the notable reduction of fine lines on Middleton’s forehead and the depression of the medial (middle part) brow. He also explained how baby Botox works.

“The magic of baby Botox is that it does not leave you feeling so heavy and provides you with a subtle reduction of lines as well as a better eyebrow position. Now 90 [percent] of my patients have baby Botox and are happy even at 3-4 months post,” he said.

However, the palace was quick to deny the claim. According to Kensington Palace spokesperson, the surgeon’s post was “categorically not true.” The royal family never endorses commercial activity.

Meanwhile, some royal fans didn’t appreciate the palace’s move. They questioned how the palace reacted to Middleton’s Botox claim but ignored the more pressing issues thrown at Meghan Markle. According to them, the palace was unfair to the Duchess of Sussex.
