Hold on, royal family fans.

Contrary to an Us Weekly report claiming the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had sent a “personal note” of congratulations to President Barack Obama following his big election victory, St. James’s Palace wants to clear the air.

A palace spokesperson has confirmed with Socialite Life the story is “not true” and there is “no statement” from the royal couple.

On Thursday, a source told Us Weekly that “The Duke and Duchess have sent a personal note of congratulations to Barack Obama on his U.S. re-election,” adding Queen Elizabeth was “pleased with the election result.”

The president, First Lady Michelle Obama, Prince William, and Kate Middleton first met in May 2011, when the Obamas were on a European tour. Earlier this summer, the first lady and the Duchess reunited at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, but without their husbands in tow.

On late Wednesday night, the 44th president of the United States was re-elected for a second term after a long campaign season against Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
