Kate Middleton, British royal Prince William’s girlfriend, shocked photographers by making apparently rude gestures when she left a London nightclub. Middleton stuck two fingers up to paparazzi after dancing the night away with celebrities, including supermodel Claudia Schiffer and TV chef Jamie Oliver, reported.

She might not have been quite as rude as first appeared. She was actually making a V sign to show her support for Richard Branson’s Virgin organisation, which hosted the pre-Wimbledon Tennis Championships party.
