Woman pays £4,000 for Kate Middleton's eyebrows A FORMER Sevenoaks resident has paid £4,000 to have the Duchess of Cambridge’s eyebrows after overplucking left her in need of a transplant. Pernille Brookman, 29, who used to live on Queen’s Drive, took the drastic decision after years of thinning her eyebrows left her having to draw on a new set every day.

Does Kate only own ONE pair of shoes? She wore them to the Epsom Derby last June. To Prince Philip’s 90th birthday at Windsor.

And on Tuesday she put them on to attend the service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s cathedral. Just what is it about Kate and her £185 pair of LK Bennett nude patent courts? Perhaps she bought a dozen pairs of the Sledge Court Shoe, first produced in 2009, as she loved them so much? Perhaps they are such good value and never scuff.
