Blocked on Facebook for being Kate Middleton

Girl called Kate was furious to be kicked off Facebook for having the same name as - Kate Middleton. (AGENCIES)

A girl called Kate was furious to be kicked off Facebook for having the same name as - Kate Middleton.

The office worker, 30, spent four days battling in vain to prove she was not impersonating Prince William's bride-to-be, according to The Sun.

The frustrated social networking fan - desperate to catch up with her pals on the site - got her account reinstated only when The Sun stepped in to vouch for her being a ‘different’ Kate Middleton. Relieved Kate said last night: "I wouldn't mind - but my boyfriend's name is Jonathan Ross and he hasn't had any bother."

Help desk administrator Kate, of Wellingborough, Northants, told how she tried to log on last Thursday but was blocked.

She said: "I was absolutely gobsmacked.

"It was ridiculous because they obviously thought I was trying to impersonate Prince William's Kate Middleton.
