This is what KMids would look like maybe.

At a fundraising event/celebration of St. Andrews' 600 years of existence, the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton got a little loose lipped on the school's tradition of "Raisin Weekend" for which she was "made to dress up as a baby complete with a bib." Oh?

She told another guest, "I think there is a photo of it out there somewhere." Oh, really?

We took it upon ourselves to draw up an approximation of what that would look like. See: Right.

Raisin Weekend is a St Andrews tradition that is as beguiling as it is confusing. Apparently it involves exchanging bottles of wine, carrying cumbersome, possibly stolen things through a quad, foam, fighting with said foam, and—naturally—adult baby outfits. Only the British can think up something like that. Per St Andrew's website, the weekend comes with the following warning: "Have a great time, but know your limits! Don't end up too sick to enjoy the rest of the weekend, and don't end up in a position where you or your academic parents are disciplined by the University or have to spend the night at the police station."

There's something Kate's not telling and/or showing us.
