This is Why Dolly Parton Turned Down Tea with Kate Middleton
Dolly Parton has been in England promoting her “Rockstar“ album. And she’s not goofing around. Her schedule is packed so tight that she turned down a visit with royalty. It came up during an interview with the BBC.
Quote, “This time, Lordy, I even got invited to have tea with Kate [Middleton]. And I felt so bad that I couldn’t go because they had all this stuff set up . . . but I thought that was very sweet and nice of her to invite me to tea. One of these days I’m gonna be able to do that. That would’ve been great. But she wasn’t gonna promote my rock album, so I had to say no. [Laughs] I hope she hears [the record] though.”
