Kim Kardashian makes jibe at Kate Middleton a day after Harry & Meghan’s ‘attempt to be pals with her famous family’

Fans noticed an insensitive comment beneath a glam pic of the star

KIM Kardashian has made a jibe at Princess Kate – just a day after Prince Harry was seen “cosying up” to her mum’s boyfriend.

The reality star shared a series of snaps on Instagram but fans were quick to spot an ill-timed and thoughtless Royal Family reference.

Beneath the glamorous pics she penned: “On my way to go find Kate.”

The cruel joke comes after Harry was spotted enjoying the slopes in Aspen, Colorado with Kris Jenner’s multi-millionaire boyfriend Corey Gamble this week.

A royal expert claimed the duke was attempting to charm the ‘whole Kardashian family’ in a bid to boost wife Meghan’s new brand.

The duchess announced the launch of American Riviera Orchard via Instagram just hours before Prince William was due to give an emotional speech at the Diana Legacy Awards.

Royal biographer Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “I’m absolutely sure that Harry has gone on a voyage to be very nice to Corey Gamble, in a job for Meghan, so she would be super well-known and super rich.”

Corey has amassed an impressive net-worth of around £12million through his talent management business, A-list clients and connection to the Kardashian clan.

Everything we know about Meghan’s new business

MEGHAN Markle has launched a new Instagram brand called American Riviera Orchard.

Industry insiders said the site will focus on home, food, garden and lifestyle goods.

A source told the Mail: “It’s a lifestyle and cooking brand called American Riviera Orchard.

“The brand is meant to coincide with the launch of a new cookery show for Netflix.

“Meghan will be making, and selling, products such as jams. And at some point there will be a book and blog etc.”

Mrs Levin claimed: “Maybe if they make friends, they might both be invited around and get to know the whole [Kardashian] family.”

And, the royal biographer believed the Sussexes had taken advantage of the Royal Family’s difficult time.

“The timing is obviously very carefully chosen, they know King Charles is ill with cancer, Catherine is still ill and William is under a lot of strain,” continued Mrs Levin.

The announcement was also dubbed “appalling” and “absolutely shocking” by the biographer – who claimed the late Princess Diana would “have hated” it.

Editor of The Sun newspaper Victoria Newton says it’s time to give the Princess of Wales a break from the backlash to her edited Mother’s Day photo

Kim’s insensitive comment comes as rumours swirl over Kate’s whereabouts following her planned abdominal surgery in January.

Despite Kensington Palace stating at the time that the princess would be unlikely to return to public duties until Easter, conspiracy theorists have continued to spark speculation.

When Prince William bowed out of an important memorial service last month due to a “personal matter”, royal fans grew more concerned.

The palace refused to comment further but said Kate was “doing well”.

‘Hateful comments and cheap shots’

The royal mum-of-three was then put under the microscope again after raising questions with an edited Mother’s Day pic.

In her adorable snap, the princess beamed alongside children Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Kate later apologised for innocently playing around with “amateur” editing skills and was reportedly “very sad” over the confusion caused.

Royal experts have also slammed “disgusting bile, hateful comments and cheap shots” aimed at Kate after false talk about Kate and Wills’ marriage also arose.

Baseless opinions about the couple spread on social media after some notice Kate wasn’t wearing her wedding ring in the pic.

The Sun’s long-time royal photographer Arthur Edwards said Kate will find the jibes “upsetting”.

One pal said the Kate and William had hoped and expected their request for privacy to be respected.

They told The Sunday Times: “It’s not that they didn’t think there would be lots of speculation and interest, but they had confidence that people would give them the space they asked for, which they did for about a month.”

While another friend said: “If you want to call out the mistake, it was Kate not telling her team that she’d done it [edited the photo]. But she came out and said sorry.”

The princess was spotted in a car with William leaving Windsor on Monday, with her head turned away from the photographers.

Kate and William will not be attending the St Patrick’s Day parade today, but the royal mum is reportedly set to be honoured by ‘three cheers’.

It is the first time in seven years the princess is missing the event at the Mons Barracks in Aldershot, Hampshire.

PHOTOSHOP SAGA

Kate is believed to have altered the image three times on a computer before it was posted on social media on Sunday.

Inspection of the original image revealed it was taken on a Canon camera with a 50mm lens.

It had been edited three times on Adobe Photoshop — once on Friday evening and twice on Saturday.

Royal enthusiasts had questioned why Kate wasn’t wearing her wedding ring in the Mother’s Day snap and noticed her other hand was blurry.

Others said daughter Charlotte’s cardigan sleeve seemed to disappear and her skirt was fuzzy.

Some claimed there seemed to be an odd cut in a nearby ­skirting board.

And in a colour-corrected and lightened version of the image, Kate’s zip appears not to line up.

She apologised on Monday, saying: “Like many amateur photo­graphers, I do occasionally experiment with editing.

“I wanted to express my apologies for any confusion the family photograph we shared yesterday caused.”
