From what I've read so far, it does not. WinRT inherits from COM (and the .net framework in some parts), so it seems like it's fundamentally an object-based API and the lowest-level language available is two variants of C++ (a template library and an extension to C++ which looks a bit like MS's older C++/CLI).

I have not seen any mention of C bindings for WinRT so far.
