"William Says Hi": Kate Beckinsale Was Mistaken For The Duchess Of Cambridge

On January 30, 45-year-old Kate Beckinsale has finally appeared in public after urgent hospitalization. A few days before, the actress was taken to hospital with a sudden ovarian cyst rupture.
Kate talked on the incident on her Instagram, posting a few photos from the hospital ward.
Luckily, the movie star recovered quickly and has already been discharged from the hospital.
Even though the story itself has nothing funny, there was something more to it, happening outside Kate’s hospital ward.
Trying to quote Beckinsale’s statement as quickly as possible, journalists made a rather funny mistake. They inserted Kate’s photo into the post but mistakenly took a photo of completely different Kate – Middleton!
Beckinsale herself was greatly amused that she was confused with the Duchess of Cambridge. This how the actress wittingly reacted on her Instagram:
So moved and touched by all the kind wishes I have received over the last few days and staggered by the similar and worse stories my #cysters have been sending me. I am feeling much better, and I hope all the other girls going through it are too. Back to resume my royal duties. William says hi ❤
Subscribers liked Beckinsale's great sense of humor. In the comments, people mentioned that such a media blunder is understandable: both Kates are British with amazingly beautiful appearance!
