Kate Middleton Hits Hen Night: Report

Kate Middleton quietly had her bachelorette party a.k.a. "hen night" several evenings ago, according to various British media outlets. The Telegraph writes that the festivities were put together by her sister and maid of honor Pippa and held at a mate's home.

Miss Middleton, 29, was thought to have been joined by friends including Olivia Bleasdale, who shared a flat with her and the Prince at St Andrews University, and Astrid Harbord, who was once romantically linked to Prince Harry.

Alicia Fox-Pitt, a schoolfriend from Marlborough and a fellow member of the Sisterhood dragon boat crew; Rose Astor, the wife of Prince William's close friend Hugh van Cutsem; and Alice Hadden-Paton, who is married to Mr van Cutsem's younger brother, Nicholas, were also among close friends who could have expected an invitation.

Prince Harry's on-again, off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy reportedly wasn't in attendance.

The night was described as low-key. Earlier in the month, the Daily Mail speculated that the fete would have a "Dirty Dancing" theme. Yes, as in, "I've had the time of my life." No word on if the ladies ran with the idea or what it would entail...except that nobody puts baby in the corner. Nobody.

Prince William's bachelor party, or "stag do," went off without a hitch over the weekend. Read all about it here.
