Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and it seems recently dumped Kate Middleton has worked out a novel way of getting back at former beau Prince William. Knowing the Royal Family's antipathy towards architecture, Kate must have touched a few nerves when she was spotted, according to the gutter press, irting outrageously with architect Alex Shirley-Smith at favoured Royal haunt Mahiki.

Shirley-Smith, 30, revealed to the Mail on Sunday that he had clocked Middleton, 25, on the danceoor. He told slavering hacks that Middleton, who 'had fantastic legs' and 'smelled sweet and fresh like spring', indulged in 'some very sexy moves' with him to the James Brown classic Sex Machine. The pair then continued their clumsy courtship to EMF's seminal Unbelievable. But this story isn't just of interest to Fleet Street's finest. The ARB will no doubt be following events keenly. It appears 'architect' Shirley-Smith is, you guessed it, not on the ARB register. If it's a real architect you're after, Kate, Astragal is prepared to work like fury towards that Part 3.
