Kate Beckinsale was recently confused for Kate Middleton, and the former handled it in a way that was quite endearing. As fans of the Underworld alum know, Beckinsale was in the headlines after suffering a ruptured ovarian cyst.
Kate posted a selfie of herself in the hospital in which looked like she was suffering. Reported by USA Today, the outlet published a photo of Kate Middleton along with the headline that reported on Kate Beckinsale’s health complications. You can see the mix-up for yourself below.
Rather than get upset about it, Kate responded with grace and civility, even taking to her Instagram to laugh it off. The star described herself as “so moved and touched” by the fact USA Today confused her for the British Royal.

So moved and touched by all the kind wishes I have received over the last few days and staggered by the similar and worse stories my #cysters have been sending me. I am feeling much better and I hope all the other girls going through it are too. Back to resume my royal duties . William says hi ❤️
Kate wrote on her post, “I am feeling much better and I hope all the other girls going through it are too. Back to resume my royal duties. Williams says hi.”
Fellow actress, Sarah Hyland, from Modern Family, poked fun at the situation as well with her post, “Tell Meghan I said hi!” As for how USA Today responded to the mistake, the outlet apologized for mixing the two women up, despite how flattering the comparison was for Ms. Kate Beckinsale.
As it was mentioned above, Kate Middleton posted a photo of herself in a hospital bed earlier in the week in which she was looking quite sad. Hopefully, this incident with USA Today gave her something to laugh about.
Kate has actually been in the headlines a lot lately, but for varying reasons. The star was recently linked to SNL star, Pete Davidson after the pair supposedly hooked up at a Golden Globes afterparty. It was never confirmed if they did hook up, but rumor has it they did.
This comes after Pete and Ariana’s very public breakup following the revelation they had called off their multiple-month engagement.
Rumor has it, however, that Ariana was merely using Pete as a rebound following her breakup with Mac Miller, who later died from a drug overdose. If that’s the case, at least Pete got a chance to rebound with Kate Beckinsale.
