Facebook unfriends (a different) Kate Middleton

By Autumn Brewington

The various copy-Kate clothing crazes suggest, to us at least, that a lot of people want to be Kate Middleton.

There is one woman in Britain, however, who is a little frustrated being Kate Middleton.

Namely, the British Kate Middleton whose account Facebook closed, thinking that she was an impostor spoofing Prince William's fiancee.

The 30-year-old office worker told Britain's Sun newspaper that she didn't hear back from the social-networking site for four days. After the paper weighed in, pointing out that the blond is a different Kate, her account was reactivated.

"It was ridiculous because they obviously thought I was trying to impersonate Prince William's Kate Middleton," the other Kate told the Sun.

"But the profile picture is of me -- and I clearly look nothing like her. Besides, William's Kate is not even on Facebook."

We're not certain about that last point. William and his brother, Prince Harry, have been rumored to use pseudonyms on the site, as have others in their circle.
