A rep from Kensington Palace issued a rare statement to The New York Post today, calling claims that Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, had gotten “Baby Botox” “categorically not true.”

In a now-deleted Instagram post by Dr. Munir Somji of the Dr. Medi Spa Clinic in London, England, the doctor speculated on the signs of Botox on an image of Middleton—claims that were quickly shut down.

The strong response from the Palance doesn’t seem to be fuelled by the speculation that Middleton could have gotten Botox (because, reminder, it’s her face and she can do what she wants to do), but rather, because of the implication that she was endorsing something.

“The Royal Family never endorse commercial activity,” said the rep.

Marketing manager Sammy Curry stated to the Post that she could not confirm or disclose whether the duchess was a client at their clinic. She also clarified that Somji’s post was intended to show the possible results of Baby Botox, not as a confirmation or reveal of the duchess herself.

Baby Botox is similar to traditional Botox but is injected in lighter doses around the forehead and around the mouth. It allows for “more subtle results,” according to Curry.
