London - The costs of maintaining Prince William and his pushy, calculating gold-digger wife have skyrocketed out of control.

That's the verdict at one celebwatch site monitoring the latest gravytrain circus.
LA HagFagSlagMag London says a softly-softly Palace campaign is rolling out the freeloaders' perks amid the collapse of Kate Middleton's 'just an RAF search and rescue pilot's wife' PR schmooze.

The hiring of essential 'skeleton' staff such as a butler, housekeeper, valet, dresser, parlor maid, cook, chauffeur, gardener, etc., comes in at another £7,500 per week.

Aromatherapissts, colonic irrigation practitioners, tarot card readers, coke dealers, private detectives and other key workers add £2,500 to the weekly bill.
Holidays, travel and Kate's dress allowance of another £10,000 a week will easily double 'once the couple start to procreate' and dump the childcare costs onto the taxpayer.
"And that's before Royal Protection Rackets cops' security costs," police sources admitted today, "of at least three million quid at the current going rate.
"Whole bloody country's being taken for a ride!"
