Is Kate Middleton Launching a Baby Food Line?
Rumor has it Kate Middleton may be looking to start an organic baby food line with her sister, Pippa.
No. No, there is not.
Vanity Fair has reported that the Duchess may be looking into starting an organic baby food line with her sister, Pippa. As of late, the close-knit sibs have been busy in the royal kitchen, tinkering with recipes, churning out homemade meals for Prince George and Princess Charlotte, and toying with the idea of taking their treats to the masses. There's even talk of possibly expanding into heat-and-eat meals for busy adults.

Pulling a J.C. Wiatt isn't as far-fetched as it sounds. (Though, honestly, I can't imagine how Kate has time to be a royal and hatch new businesses. But I digress.) The mama reportedly makes all of George's meals and also whips up easy-to-nosh goodies for her daughter using organic fruits and veggies grown at the family's country home, Anmer Hall. "Kate has weaned two babies, and she keeps saying there is a gap in the market for home-grown, organic baby food," according to VF's source. And being in the starting-solids trenches means she's zeroed in on which food combos work and which don't.
It also helps that Kate's in the right family to pull off the potential business: Pippa recently finished a certification in food nutrition and is probably fired up to put it to good use. And father-in-law Prince Charles is the O.G. of organic foods. His locally sourced, organic food company, Duchy Organic, was one of the first in the world.
Considering all of that, show of hands: Who's dying to try what the Middleton sisters come up with? Yup, me too.
