Kate Middleton Absent From Royal Wedding Rehearsal

Where in the world is Kate Middleton? The official royal wedding rehearsal took place today with over 1000 members of the British Military running through the wedding.

Kate was noticeably absent from the rehearsal, but there was a fake Kate stand in.

She’s probably off somewhere not eating getting pampered for her big day. The girl’s gotta look good!

At 4 a.m. London time, a swarm of military officials descended upon Westminster Abbey, all preparing for the big day, reports People.

"There were hundreds and hundreds of mounted military, all on horseback," says Janelle Howell, who has been camping outside Westminster Abbey since Tuesday. "And then the cars and coaches came. Dozens of them. And people got out of each car and entered the church, just like the guests will. It was quite the spectacle."

When the Kate lookalike came out of a black sedan the crowd went nuts—until they realized they were cheering for a fake.

"It was a dry run," says observer Sherelle Newton. "Everyone was figuring out where they should be on Friday. But they were careful to make sure the crowds would be able to see Kate."
