"They are very friendly, but not many people know that," the Daily Star quoted Katie's publicist, as saying. "Katie never talks about her friendships with other celebrities and she won't discuss her friendship with Zara, but yes, there is a friendship. She is going to Gatcombe Park with Zara and can't wait," Katie's publicist added.
However, Katie was left red-faced when Zara's spokesman denied all the claims, by revealing that they are unauthentic. "It's a nice story but unfortunately it's not true. They haven't met," The Daily Star quoted Zara's spokesman as saying. "As far as Zara is concerned, she was competing. If they did meet it was in passing," the spokesman added.
