LONDON:

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, contactmus-ic.com 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.
