Kate Middleton wore dress associated with a demon baby and Twitter can’t believe it

Kate Middleton is being attacked by both the fashion police and the movie police.

Kate Middleton and Prince William announced the birth of their third child, Prince Louis of Cambridge on April 23. As she walked out of the hospital with the baby in her arms and her husband by her side, Twitter noticed that the dress she was wearing - red with a white Peter Pan collar - looked an awful lot like the dress worn by Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s Baby. The problem being: Rosemary’s Baby is a horror classic in which the heroine gets raped and impregnated by the devil, and gives birth to his son.

Kate’s dress was designed by Jenny Peckham, whom she also wore for the reveal of Princess Charlotte and Prince George, People.com reported.

Check out some of the reactions on Twitter:

Rosemary’s Baby, directed by Roman Polanski, was released in 1968. The film was about a young couple that moves into a fancy apartment complex in New York City, where their neighbours eventually reveal themselves to be Satanists. In a deal with the devil, she is offered to carry his child, the anti-Christ, whom she gives birth to.

The film was based on a novel by Ira Levin and received two Oscar nominations - for Best Supporting Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay.
