She may be the queen of celebrity, but Kim Kardashian’s dream of joining the official Platinum Jubilee celebrations in the UK has been dashed.
Despite her best efforts, Buckingham Palace officials rejected her requests to attend the Platinum Party at the palace on Saturday.
Representatives for the star, 41 – who landed in the UK with her boyfriend Pete Davidson, 28, this week – have been asking for tickets. But the palace refused the American couple, as did publicists for the TSWT, which will broadcast the show.

Kim was so determined to attend that a source told the Daily Mail she was trying to acquire tickets through other means – and even said she didn’t mind if the tickets were ‘not VIP’ .
They said: ‘Kim rarely gets turned down to attend an event so that was quite surprising, especially as she doesn’t travel to the UK often. Kim and Pete adore the royal family and really wanted to be part of this special celebration.’
It is not clear if the Jubilee celebrations were the only reason for the couple’s trip to London.
Artists like Queen, Diana Ross and Nile Rodgers will perform at the event, while Sir David Attenborough and David Beckham will make appearances.
Some 10,000 tickets were allocated via public ballot and 7,500 were given to key workers, those in the armed forces, volunteers and charities.
Members of the Royal Family are expected to attend on behalf of the Queen, who is “slowing down” but will watch on TV from Windsor Castle.
Representatives for Kim declined to comment when approached by TSWT.
