Kate Middleton

The Corporate Race

TO THE FETUS!

Kate Middleton
is only a few weeks pregnant ... but already being SHOWERED with lavish gifts from tons of baby product companies ... all gunning for what could be the HOLY GRAIL of preggo publicity.

TMZ has learned ... Kate has already received swanky goodie-baskets from at least 4 U.S.-based baby product companies ... and presumably dozens, if not hundreds, more from around the globe.

The logic is simple ... Kate likes the goods ... uses goods ... is photographed with goods ... goods get WORLDWIDE publicity ... company makes a bloody fortune.

So far, we know Kate been sent kiddy learning programs from MyTalkingToddler.com ... morning sickness relief from a company called One Step Ahead ... and clothes and products from 2 high end L.A. baby boutiques.

We spoke to a rep for Bel Bambini in Beverly Hills ... who told us they sent Kate a $2,300 gift basket which included a new Bugaboo Cameleon 3 stroller (worth $978), a Fendi layette set ($265), Dior Booties ($275) and much much more.

Kate also got more than $1,000 in free baby swag from Flicka -- a high-end baby store owned by "General Hospital" star John Reilly. Management tells us they shipped over their "hot selling Choo Choo blankies" which have been worn by a whole bunch of celeb babies.

Guess Kate can cancel the baby shower ... unless Queen Elizabeth's just DYING to play "Guess the Due Date."

As a consumer, I would be more impressed and more likely to use their product if I found out they gave products away to people who couldn't afford it rather than giving to someone who could. they could even try giving a donation of products in her name. Not sure what is wrong with the world today, used to be that people cared about one another, now its about chasing the almighty dollar. What a shame

I hope all this crap gets sent back to them just like Kartrashians clothes did. She can afford her own baby products, donate stuff to people who can't (although those people should not be having kids anyway).

You guys need to do a better job of doing your research. The Royals never accept gifts. Any gifts are sent back. Kim Kardashian recently tried to send the Duchess some clothes from her line for publicity, and they were sent right back.

The Royals' job is to serve the country. They send the men off to the military (which very few US leaders do with their own kids). And they never accept money or gifts from people who want publicity.

regardless of what companies send her, you will find she doesn't accept hand outs or 'gifts' and and some point her people will send the parcels back. Crass and vulgar article and factually incorrect.

TMZ, it's obvious you are a bunch of idiots, so I will helpfully point out to you that she stopped being Kate Middleton when she got married. It's kind of obvious, since that's what happens after weddings, appparantly you don't seem to be aware of this. Your initial announcement of the pregnancy was tasteless and crude, to say the least. get your pathetic act together. HER NAME IS NOT MIDDLETON ANYMORE. DUH.
