NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Many ladies love their handbags and will spend a lot of money for the latest and greatest, but a new study says what is inside those bags may be covered in germs worse than what you’ll find in the bathroom.
Well this is unfortunate. According to the Examiner (a pseudo-news source that's slightly similar to the National Inquirer, so take this as you will), it seems Kate Middleton and her new Royal Family have been burying some deep secrets for nearly a century — two of the Queen's first cousins who were born with developmental disabilities were checked into an asylum in 1941 and were subsequently "forgotten by the royal family."
The article reports that Nerissa and Katherine Bowes-Lyon, nieces of the Queen Mother and cousins of the current Queen have been institutionalized since the early 40s, though Nerissa died in 1986 at the age of 66 and Katherine is still alive. The asylum allegedy closed in the late 90s, displacing Katherine to a nursing home where the Royal Family, now including Kate Middleton, is forbidden to visit.
"If these two girls were born into the Royal Family today, they'd have a fighting chance, but back in the 1940's they brought shame to the family and put away like they never existed," the Examiner reports.
All of this, along with her Royal Family secrets, are said to be unturned come Thursday during a documentary that the Examiner says will air, but gives no account of the channel or time. Do you think this is really true or, at least, peppered with half-truths? Could Kate Middleton ever really shame an in-law?
