In a since-deleted Instagram post this week, Dr. Munir Somji of Dr. MediSpa Clinic suggested that Kate Middleton had gotten a kind of botox. "Our Kate loves a bit of baby Botox," Somji wrote under a side-by-side of the Duchess, suggesting the photos were a "before and after" of the procedure.

"Note the reduction of fine lines on the forehead," Somji said, according to the New York Post. "But also note the depression of the medial (middle part) brow but elevation of the lateral tail of the brow."

Kensington Palace wasted no time shutting down Somji's comments. A spokesman for the palace told the Post that Somji's post was "categorically not true," adding, "in addition, the Royal Family never endorse commercial activity."

The latter part of the statement is likely an attempt to dispel any perception that Kate was a client at Dr. MediSpa Clinic. When the Post asked the clinic directly if Kate had used its services, MediSpa's marketing manager was purposefully evasive. "We wouldn’t be able to disclose whether she is a client or not," staffer Sammy Curry said. "We have non-disclosure agreements where we can’t disclose our high-end clients. We absolutely can’t comment at all that she has come to us."

Curry claimed that Somji's post was simply an attempt to show what baby Botox can do. (The cosmetic procedure uses the same kind of Botox, but injects it differently, with the goal of creating a more natural look.)

"He just wanted to show the transformation that it can create and obviously how it can be used for subtle results and how it’s really good for anti-aging," Curry said. She added that Somji's use of "our Kate" was meant to connote "the U.K.'s Kate" rather than "our client Kate."
