Facebook Suspends Kate Middleton's Account

Kate Middleton's Facebook account was suspended.

To be perfectly clear, it wasn't the Facebook account of Kate Middleton, Prince William's fiance, but rather the account belonging to 29 year-old Kate Middleton, a healthcare assistant hailing from Kingsway, Northants in the UK.

Facebook mistook Middleton for an impostor using a fake name to impersonate the bride-to-be and has shut her out from her account since last week, according to the Telegraph.

The Telegraph reports:

Facebook has refused to reinstate her since suspending the account on Thursday, denying her access to her library of contacts and photographs.

The social networking giant, which is approaching 600 million users worldwide, said that she had registered with a fake name.

Prince William will marry his fiance Kate Middleton at Westminster Abbey in April and Facebook has moved to stop anybody impersonating her.

Facebook has acknowledged that the suspension of the account was a mistake.

"Of course, we make an occasional mistake. This is an example. When this happens, and it's brought to our attention, we work quickly to resolve the issue," a spokesperson told the Daily Mail.
