Title: Edward says the Queen will protect Kate
Post by: True Brit on March 25, 2012, 05:20:11 pm
Have put this here but if mods think better suited elsewhere please feel free to relocate.

http://www.people.co.uk/news/uk-world-news/2012/03/25/queen-will-protect-kate-middleton-says-prince-edward-102039-23801316/

Now I find this very interesting. Edward has obviously been given the OK to give this interview. Suspect it's because Kate is proving to be a very divisive figure and (despite what it says here) the public isn't warming to her.

Also suspect a CYA angle and asked Edward to say these things so it looks lower key than someone else doing it. Who knows Anne and Andrew may have refused to do this.

Is her weight loss causing alarm bells to ring within the palace walls and they are making sure they are seen to be doing everything to support her? As I said CYA.

If the public was really warming up to her , she wouldn't need all the PR.

of course, PE is going to say that the RF is protective of WK, what else should he say? If HM really like WK, she would have been invited to all of the RF gathering just like Autumn...

Quote
St James' Palace said they will be spending private time together in Anglesey, North Wales, where William works as a search and rescue pilot.

- so they are not skiing...methinks WK is n Berkshire while PW is somewhere getting drunk with his mates..

Yup sounds like a CYA to me.
(especially 'cause I heard that Eddy is a big snobby dude when it comes to the stuffy etiquette and rules of the royal life)
She ain't selling that much so they push her up a little, but how much of it is sincere and what is business PR?
Don't forget that the firm is a big family business that in a way depends on the public money for existence and a lot of ppl in the family depend on it!
And I don't think Eddy wants to see his comfy pension go poof!

When I looked past the focus of Kate in the article and saw how Pr.Edward spoke so warmly of his "mother"(The Queen) and how well he thought Pr.Harry did in his recent tours,  it ended up being a really sweet article. Pr.Edward seems like a really nice man.
Quote
Pr. Edward.......
"My mother really cares about the British people and their welfare. It was wonderful to see the warm and heartfelt support.

"This year should be very special for my family and the rest of the country.

"I know some of the younger members of the family are enjoying organising the Jubilee concert. It should all be a lot of fun.

"My mother and father are just letting the younger ones get on with it. One of the aspects my mother enjoyed the most was seeing the younger generation enjoying all the celebrations last year. The family would like to see that again."

Edward also spoke of the royals' delight at the success of "charming" Prince Harry on his Jubilee tour of the Caribbean and South America.

He explained: "The trip to South America showed the world what a charming man Harry has become.

"Harry was very natural and I think he, along with some of the other younger members of the family who have embarked on recent trips, have helped shape people's views about my family.

"It's lovely to see. Just little things like my nephew's moment with sprinter Usain Bolt showed he's human. It was a touching moment to see him do so well on his own."

The Royal Family is really putting the press on notice that EVERY member is helping Kate and likes her.

I think this is an article to cover the royal's backs should there be a split. Kate would never be able to claim that she wasn't given support since she entered the firm as it is now out there in print how supportive the royal family have been towards her.

Glad to see that Harry is getting the recognition he deserves now that he has returned home :thumbsup:

Good point
But hey who knows when Edward saw Waisty the last time
Must have been around Christmas I figure
Plus he's a guy raised with the idea that it's not done to talk about a ladies weight or age in public. (not that she's a lady but..ya know)

Boy, if this isn't a big ol' announcement that there's trouble behind the curtain, nothing is.  Without a problem, there's no need for an article like this.  None whatsoever.  So, there's a problem and everybody's doing their part, which is very, very wise.  As stated before by many others, they don't want nor should they ever have any egg on their face when things go kaput.

This article, to me, is almost embarrassing.  If I was WK, I'd feel like a heel and an anchor to put people through this just because I'm not pulling my weight nor making any positive headway.

Does anyone find it odd that
1. We get reports Kate and William are going on ski vacation
2. Then we hear the Pr.Edward is with them or joining them
3. Suddenly Pr.Edward gives interview praising Kate, saying how everyone is helping her and the Queen will protect her.

4. Obscure rumours surfacing saying Kate-Pr.William could be sneaking off to a clinic, for whatever  is going on with Kate.


(Another aspect of Pr.Edward's speech or supposedly off the cuff interview I find fascinating,is that parts of it sound as if it was written and prepped by a public relations person. )
Pr. Edward seems like he was put out there and told go do this, take one for the team,go promote our closeness to Kate. Say how well she's doing.
I believe he is sincere in much of what he says in the interview but some of it sounds very prepared soundbites.

It could just be that this is the year of the jubilee and everyone has been told to promote all aspects of the family.

 ??? but.....I find it odd, because Pr.Edward was the guy who Pr.William sent a shiteload of Palace henchmen on when a truck turned up at St.Andrew's from his tv production company, so I just find it interesting that he's publicly discussing Kate.

I *despise* to be so suspicious but I can't help it.  :cookie:

How reliable is the UK edition of People magazine? The one in US makes up a lot of stories regarding the royal family, but I've heard that they're also used by Hollywood celebrities to get things out to the public.


Title: Re: Edward says the Queen will protect Kate
Post by: Yooper on March 26, 2012, 02:25:18 am
^^^Thanks, Jane!

^^Being suspicious is status normal because nobody's ever straight-up about anything when it comes to them.  There's always a murky feel to every move they make and my Trust-O-Meter fell off the wheel a long time ago.  Something's been up for a while now.  How many stories have we been fed since before the wedding?  It's got to be close to the triple digits.

The engagement!!!!!!
Simple wedding - cost conscious
Big a$$ reception, tho, with Snoop Dogg maybe
No big a$$ reception, but a quiet one, but then maybe not
Bloated wedding with no personality whatsoever
2B people watching
1B people watching
100M people watching
Not sure how many people watched the wedding
Carriage ride
Car ride
Two year's off
No royal duties
In training for royal duties
Active in royal duties
Staying out at the ranch
Moving in to London
Pippa being LIW
Pippa not being LIW
Not going to USA
Going to USA
Not going to California
Going to California

Oh, I don't have enough life left to list them all.  So, suspicion is the only avenue left.  Frankly, I don't think THEY know what they're doing, either.

Each member, and now Edward, has had to 'take one for the team' and it's getting really, really old.  It must be more frustrating for that whole family than it is for we who can shut it off.  Imagine dealing with this cr@p day after day after day...vodka IV indeed.

It soudns like they are desperate about something; as for HM protecting Kate, Kate has shown that the last thing she needs is protection.I don't think that HM can really protect her, from the rest of the world or from herself.


Title: Re: Edward says the Queen will protect Kate
Post by: serene grace on March 26, 2012, 10:00:32 am
I suppose they all would say something nice about her ,but why now? Is she having some issue, where she needs special coddleing?

This marriage has to work, it has to, I think the family is trying to make sure they do everything they can to show they supported it.


Title: Re: Edward says the Queen will protect Kate
Post by: meememe on March 26, 2012, 11:09:18 am
This certainl smacks of something being wrong with the marriage that they have to keep telling us that they are all lovey dovey.  If that were the case then there would be no need for us to be constantly told it. 

There has also been something wrong with this relationship from the get-go.  To me it seems that William really took the first woman who would stay with him for any length of time and simply settled on Kate rather than seek a soul mate who could complement him.  He saw how his father was forced into a miserable relationship with his mother while his true love was married to another because she wasn't deemed good enough to be the mother of his children.  However William has now seen how happy his father is with Camilla and so rather than find himself in a similar situation took Kate rather than find himself in a similar predicament - in miserable marriage to the wrong woman with no ability to get out of it.

Delighted to welcome her to the family - my arse! 

They all turned up at W.Abbey looking like they were attending their own hangings.  HM could barely look at Kugly.

I smell BS - either another bloody scandal about the Mansons is about to break, or Wasty's eating disorder is reaching the point of no return.   The RF don't want to blamed as the cause of another nervous breakdown, so they've wheeled Eddie out as he owes PW a favour after the SA fiasco.  They wouldn't dare ask Anne.

The odd thing is normally this sort of thing is said when the points hit are the problems. He says HM supports her. Was there any question? And why now why not right after the wedding. This is pr work but for what reason? Are the middletons starting *poo* vehind the scenes about Kate not getting support or Will is bitching behind closed doors. Edward is supporting gran with those words . Something is going on . My bet is on Carole starting shot cause the doors are closed to them.

Notice bea gets an event with HM. The queen is bending over backwards for *female dog* Kate and making other royals feel bad.

What got me is when he said , Kate's not use to the public eye

....of course she is,she courted the press  for at least 8yrs to help her land Pr.William in marriage.

Why are the Royals being made to feel that they have to constantly grovel to Kate's mediocrisy. She's the one who didn't prepare for this in 10 years. She had more than enough time to get herself ready.

The title is a disrespect to Diana_IMO they protect a terrible woman like Lazy but left to fend for herself a great asset that was Diana.
I agree with some of the posters here this smells fishy.I think KF will be right they are all "playing nice" for  now for because it's the Queen's year and they don't want to rock the boat.But after it's over I think the Middletons are in for a surprise that the trash press won't even be able to safe them, all their schemes will come back to haunt them somehow.

   As I have said previously, the RF were very neglectful of a very young Diana, and when she died, public anger was unleashed on the RF.. they see WK as a means to make themselves look better, this time around.

  As for Camilla, no one in the RF was happy to see her as HRH anything, thus no one supported her, except Charles.

  I should also add that Edward got on very well with Diana, he has said he was very fond of her.

  I agree. The BRF hopefully has learned from its past mistakes with those who married into the "Firm." I'm not fond of Sarah, but her concerns about the early days of her marriage to Andrew should not be ignored either. IMO William's and Harry's  brides would be given the same slow introduction to royal life that Diana and Sarah did not receive.

I agree with SG.  :thumbsup: I reckon William would hold a grudge. After all, this is the guy who gives a person once chance to breach his trust, and then they are OUT forever.

With respect, meememe, you are really jumping to conclusions. There could be myriad reasons as to why Louise was chosen to be bridesmaid, and not one of them has to be because William and Edward 'are on good terms'.

Taking another perspective, William seems to be quite close to Sophie; likewise, Sophie is apparently to have stood as HM's favourite daughter-in-law. But just as likely is that William chose her because Lady Louise is an adorable little girl, who suffers with a physical irregularity. I think anyone's heart would go out to her. I doubt William would project any possible ill-feeling toward Edward on to innocent Louise.

I felt at the time that both William and Kate wanted Lousie to have the opportunity of a lifetime. She seems to have been quite sheltered and IMO it was a very sweet gesture to give her the chance to shine. I don't praise these two often, if at all, but this is one time I will.  :thumbsup:

Re Edward: actions speak louder than words and that [lack thereof] action is deafening, IMO. Words are cheap, as they say. And, all this verbal arrant nonsense is all we seem to get from, or regarding, Kate. Nothing of substance, no movement at the station.


Title: Re: Edward says the Queen will protect Kate
Post by: thtregoddess11 on April 11, 2012, 08:42:53 am
Here's my opinion why Lady Louise was chosen:

William was trying to mimick his parents wedding.

Think about it:

Prince William and Prince Charles both chose their brothers as their supporters.

The page boys were Lord Nicholas Windsor (godchild of the Prince), Edward van Cutsem (godchild of the Prince, also Grace's uncle, I think) in Charles's wedding and with Prince Wllilam's were William Lowther-Pinkerton (commoner friend of the couple) and Tom Pettifer (godson of Prince William).

Diana's bridesmaids consisted of:
Lady Sarah Chatto (Prince Charles's 1st cousin)
India Hicks (second cousin of Charles)
Catherine Cameron (goddaughter of the Prince of Wales)
Sarah-Jane Gaselee (commoner friend of the couple)
Clementine Hambro (former pupil of Diana, Princess of Wales and great-grandchild of Winston Churchill)


Catherine's were:
Lady Louise (Prince William's 1st cousin)
The Hon. Margarita Armstrong-Jones (second cousin of William)
Grace van Cutsem (goddaughter of the Prince of Wales)
Eliza Lopes (commoner friend of the couple)

So each wedding had a sibling as the best man, a first cousin (Ladies Lousie and Sarah), a second cousin (India and Margarita), a godchild (Grace and Catherine) and commoner friend of the couple (Clem and Eliza).

It's probably right. But her omission would have been telling in any event.

My only point was that even if William still held a grudge against Edward (and I believe it's highly likely), he would not take it out on Louise. He seems close to Sophie when they are seen together.

It's interesting when you present it that way, thtregoddess11.
I've always thought that it was because Kate doesn't have any young nieces/nephews of her own, but could it be royal protocol that they choose bridesmaids/page boys?

 :thumbsup: That was very good work studying the bridesmaids' pattern. Does it follow other royal weddings or just Charles & Diana's?

There was another potential commoner bridesmaid - Kate's niece Tallulah the daughter of Uncle Gary and his ex wife Luan. Though given his background and I think she was an exotic dancer of some sort I would imagine they were having the vapours at the Palace.

Shame because the little girl is only around 10 and it really would have given her a day to remember.

Quote
Kate's uncle, multi-millionaire entrepreneur Gary Goldsmith, who shamed the family when he was filmed chopping cocaine and boasting of his Royal connections, will be among those invited to meet the Queen at the Palace. Carole's only brother will be accompanied by his ex-wife Luan Goldsmith and their ten-year-old daughter Tallulah.

It could be a case of the Palace now wishing to been seen as kind, friendly, and welcoming to the DoC before something of Etna-proportions blows up.  They will have been quoted by PE as trying to help the DoC, of welcoming her into the family, and of trying their utmost to ensure her happiness, thus publicly absolving them of any guilt (if there is any) once the whole saga goes tits-up.  As others have said, the RF don't make statements of this kind; perhaps they are now trying to keep one step ahead of the Middletons in what could be a PR war.

Queen Mother/King George VI
Bridesmaids:
The Lady Mary Cambridge* (QM's great-niece, KG's cousin)
The Lady May Cambridge* (QM's niece, KG's first cousin)
The Hon Cecilia Bowes-Lyon (QM's niece)
The Hon Mary Elizabeth Elphinstone (QM's niece)
Miss Betty Cator (later QM's sister-in-law)
The Lady Mary Thynn (family friend?)
The Lady Katharine Hamilton (family friend?)
The Hon Diamond Hardinge (family friend?)
*They were also listed as QM's nieces but I don't know if they were only nieces by marriage

QEII/Prince Philip
Pageboys: Prince William of Gloucester and Prince Michael of Kent (both QEII's cousins)
Bridesmaids:Princess Margaret (QEII's sister)
Princess Alexandra of Kent (QEII'S cousin)
Lady Mary Cambridge (QEII's second cousin)
The Hon. Margaret Elphinstone (QEII's first cousin)
The Hon. Diana Bowes-Lyon (QEII's first cousin)
Lady Caroline Montagu-Douglas-Scott (her aunt married the Duke of Gloucester who is an uncle of QEII)
Lady Elizabeth Lambart (family friend?)
The Hon. Pamela Mountbatten (Philip's first cousin)

Princess Anne/Mark Philips
Pageboy: Prince Edward (Anne's brother)
Bridesmaid: Sarah Chatto (Anne's cousin)

Prince Andrew/Fergie
Pageboys: William Middleton (Andrew's nephew)
Bridesmaids: Zara Phillips (Andrew's niece)

--
Are we only talking about royal marriages of the heirs? Because I also included Anne's and Andrew's here. I could research more but all these titles are making me dizzy. I need a time-out :o

But from what I can see, there is no goddaughter/godson in sight. However is there a bigger priority for the heir/a member of the BRF's relatives to be part of the entourage?
