phil dampier ‏@phildampier
New poll in Sunday Times says Queen gives best moral leadership followed by Will and Kate, way ahead of clergy and politicians. Interesting.

The only thing about polls, is that you have to see the perimeters it was performed under, particularly the sample size. Even then you have to wonder if the people answering th question(s) gave them serious thought or not.

(except from post)
I can see the Queen - she has years of service and duty - but W and K?

Sometimes you just gotta wonder if people have been out drinking late into the night or off their meds or smoking something funny when they answer these polls. I can think of a few other possibilities but none are politically correct. However, my GF read the Times and had to msg me about it. Something along the lines of Mattress Queen wins morality contest. Quick. Open snow ski shop in the Carib, hell will soon freeze over. Sending funds soonest.

As a reminder, it was 4 years in October that Mr Willy took his final flight to qualify as a helicopter pilot for Search & Rescue. Photos dated 17 Sep 2010 on Zimbio with caption: No UK Use Until October 15, 2010.William, Prince of Wales takes his final flight to qualify him to be a search and rescue pilot in the 22 Squadron, where he will be a co-pilot in a Sea King Mk3 helicopter.

And then he promptly took off at every opportunity for royal and social engagements, no doubt leaving his fellow pilots in the lurch.  Yes. The moral thing to do.

^ Well said, and sums it up nicely,  Be the same with this position granny bought him by giving EAAA a whopping donation to make it worth their while.  Money talks, every time.  He doesn´t need to study, won´t be needing any of it, any piccies will see will be photo ops and staged, been there before, got the badge, the tee shirt and the chocolates, not going back for more.  Pretty desperate when you have to "buy" your lazy grandson a non-job.

Yes and a right royal slap in the face to all those hardworking Brits who have to work their butts off to earn enough to pay tax to keep her  and her layabout grandson and wife in luxury

If the photos exist and are in Germany then I would be surprised if they are not relased.  Bild was the only one who bought the buttgate photos, but they didn´t care, they bought and published.  And with the advent of the internet we will all see them if this is a similar case.  If showing wasty in a bikini sans bump then the photos would be explosive, too good an opportunity for any publication to miss to be fair, and who could blame them.  If the photos exist.

She could pull her trick of a enormous lunch and push out her belly.  If many of us did the same we could almost look preggers - I know I could but a fake 6 month+ pushed belly should be detectable!


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: Rebecca on February 04, 2015, 06:27:45 pm

^ I would rock with you on that point but these are the idiots that lied about preparing for the Asian tour and instead snaked off to France where Dumb One 2 decided to sunbathe topless on a balcony facing a public road, as if technology and in this case cameras haven't improved exponentially and long lenses don't exist. Not to mention she also has constantly been letting her skirts fly up and flashed herself and been caught by the cameras. It's like something doesn't connect in her brain. But if they ever come out, we'll see.

Post by: Diaphenous on March 13, 2015, 07:51:47 pm
All this recent 'working' makes you wonder if there is some grand plan.  If something were to 'happen to the baby', it would get her out of any potential surrogacy issues.  Maybe the Queen has put her foot down in private and said this can't happen again.  On the other hand, if something did go wrong with the pregnancy, they would blame ER for working her too hard close to her due date.  Who knows?????       :cookie:


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: YooperModerator on March 13, 2015, 11:56:52 pm
^If they pulled the 'working too hard' card the outcry from working, pregnant mothers and mothers who worked would be deafening.  In addition, none of this, not one little piece of it is real work.  It only proves to me that the whole HG was a boatload of nonsense, which is another insult to those who suffer right through delivery, but she's wasting her time visiting places that bear no resemblance to her own charities left twisting in the wind.

I'm seriously close to blocking her out of my mind.  It's maddening for me and for many others who worked while pregnant, raised children without massive or any help, didn't feel all that great either, 5-6 days a week, 8 hrs a day at a job with commuting added to it and cooked and cleaned, etc. ad nauseous.   This so-called 'Normalcy' they're struggling to attain is utter bullsh#t.

You don't have to have kids to be annoyed - I am personally sick and tired of women (and some men) who use their children as a crutch.

This is a big time PR push and they know it - let's recap: we barely hear anything of Willy and Wasty for at least weeks, or anything major about the pair for months, and then BOOM! Jason Juggernaut gets on board, there is story after story, so many pictures of Wasty bending down to children and woodland creatures, Carole getting her meathooks into things, and a push to slam Chas and Cam. It's relentless, day after day - why won't the British press and public call this disgusting group of people on their games? Once and for all?

Hmmmm, stranger things have happened.  There is always a turning point, and it is possible that happened last September.  Sometimes, it only takes one teensy, weensy, puff of wind to blow a house of cards down.  If the basis is not sound, it can fall any time.  I am pretty optimistic that wasty is shooting herself in both feet.

Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: Countess of Holland on March 18, 2015, 06:52:51 pm
I am not sure it is 'supporting' but the Queen will realise that at one point William must take over the reigns of his father. So she is trying to prepare him, against all odds probably (and she knows it). Kind of damage-control.

Post by: Alexandrine on March 18, 2015, 06:57:48 pm

IMO she has let him do whatever he wants but he already has an age and he should start learning what his role will be. Although this should have been done years ago.

Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: YooperModerator on March 18, 2015, 07:23:45 pm
Why did I think he'd been doing this all his young adult life?  I mean, I just assumed HM was showing him the ropes way before this.  Guess not?  He should at least spend an entire day with her to see exactly how the factory works.  And she's done this since before his age (yes?) day after day after day after day after day.

My guess is, and I may be wrong, is that at her advanced age she still looks at William as a young boy.  Well, he's not.   Little wake up call for Prince Pouty I see.

^Oh, dear.  I hadn't heard that.  High time that PW started learning the ropes, tho.  He looks very awkward in the photos.  May HM live forever but of course no one does but PW, I believe, doesn't have a clue what this woman does on a daily basis. 


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: LadyLaura on March 18, 2015, 08:49:15 pm
^ I agree, he really does not have an iota of understanding as to what his grandmother actually does, and how she goes about doing the many things she oversees. I'm not a fan of HM but she is a hard worker and it's time she take william by the puppy fat and throw him into some real work. Maybe he will grow up.

William met with the Queen every week while he was at Eton.   She has worked with him and influenced him.   He seems to greatly love and respect her, so his holding back from duties can't be simply that he is spoiled and lazy.  More going on there, I think.

Post by: Liquorice on March 19, 2015, 03:44:31 pm
^^I don't know what is in his head. He doesn't seem to appreciate that with such a behaviour, he can be thrown over his throne. With the Internet today, his brother can build a good reputation more easily than in the 1930s. Furthermore, the whole "heirs" thing is a high treason crime, if it is proved. He is getting on the wrong side of all the royals behind him in the succession line, the Queen, Prince Charles, the aristocracy and his subjects !  :o :bat:

^Yes, the whole university life has had a bad influence on him. Because he has a weak character. If I go to the university where there are lots of funs, alcohol, girls, party, I enjoy it but I know there is something else for me behind.

None of this was a surprise to anyone, surely, after they reconciled in 2007.   The Queen gave her formal consent.  She didn't have to.   She could have withheld it.

I think she was cornered, if it is true William told her only an hour before the press announcement. She couldn't afford to retire her consent two hours after the announcement.

But it was no surprise.   She knew that William had no other girlfriends.  They had dated for eons and Kate was hanging on.  There had been plenty of time to run Kate off if that's what the royals wanted to do.

^ Yes, it is that in my opinion. If he had fake heirs, how to convince the British subjects he wouldn't be manipulated by DAESH into sleazy business in exchange of a few hours in Beyoncé's bedroom ?  :P Why, that topic would be best discussed in the surrogacy thread.

^^ It was no news indeed but it would depend on him answering the question "So William, how's your love life ?" at family gatherings. If he just said : "Er... I just see her from time to time.", there would not have been reasons for panicking. It's not like he had been in love with her.
Furthermore, I was rather thinking of medical examinations, in regards to the surrogacy. It is odd Camilla is said to have claimed Kate was infertile though.
Anyway, after the Diana business, maybe the BRF thought that allowing her into the Firm was the best PR scheme.

If the BRF didn't keep dragging Diana up to use her to promote William, I am certain that Kate never would have happened.

At some point, William seemed to be moving on, but then Kate happened and kept dragging up Diana's dead corpse; that alone is a warning sign and frankly I don't think that Diana should have been used like this. It was more than just and aristocrat marrying a prince that caused the whole mess.

If my memory serves (and it's always doubtful), William proposed to Kate in Kenya about a month before it was announced officially (Oct? Nov?), so, I recall that it was not done in the right order.  That PW was to go to HM first or something.  It all seemed rather confusing at the time.  Honestly, I don't believe that anybody took Kate as seriously as they should have. 

It seems as though PW wanted to do this without any media involvement until the 'interview'.  I've got to rewatch that one.

The BRF is used to long term girlfriends being long term and then the men dropping them to settle down. Thing is, I think William might have suggested Kate, but HM and others went nuts about it and so ended up deciding to pull a fast one. NO WAY is it protocol to just suddenly inform HM/courtiers an hour before.

Thing is, William KNEW that Kate would be unsuitable and would not be welcomed.

Yes; standard protocol is to inform the Sovereign and then the Sovereign consults the Privy Council and of course, Parliament. After the Council is in agreement and both Houses of Parliament end up in agreement, then of course, the Sovereign will have final say and then a proposal is made.

Fact is, Fergie and Diana were brought into the palaces before their wedding, not kept in the countryside for the entire time, then moved to a hotel.

 Prince William didn't inform his grandmother of what he was going to do, ie propose, I think. He was supposed to have told her and obtained her formal consent before proposing, giving plenty of time for Privy Council meetings and a formal announcement to be prepared. The sovereign would then inform the Privy Council at the next meeting.

 In the British system Parliament doesnt get involved in the process, though in some constitutional monarchies it does. The Queen though, as a matter of courtesy would inform the PM at their weekly meeting, but ask him to keep it confidential if there hadn't been an announcement. It's hard to know with William and Kate what was done in what order as he seems to have skipped off to Kenya with the ring without telling the Queen what he was going to do. Or maybe he did! Who knows!

Normally, Wimpo would have discussed this with his father first.
Then HM and PP.
If all of this went smooth, then discuss it with Mike M. and ask for her hand.
Then plan a romantic proposal for Waity and hope that she will say yes.

But that didn't happen.
The RF knew nothing, only the Mansons.
Even Mike was bypassed, the Viper pressured Wimpo and he caved in.

Yeah, well, thankfully his grandmother and father didn't end up rescuing him from Kate and taking endless amounts of abuse over that; they let him make his own bed in that respect and I'm glad HM didn't intervene and let William feel sorry for himself.

HM must be kicking herself on a regular basis for not making William do ceremonial appearances and such when she had the chance to get him in line; if she had ended up making William appear at the various routine ceremonial events that Charles and Philip accompany her to, William wouldn't have wasted time on Kate and would have been fully under her wing and guidance.

How could she? Between her own son's crappy love life, partially her fault for forcing him in to a marriage he didn't want, and the public's love of Diana, Willie boy was gonna get what he wanted regardless. A few whispered words about how unhappy he was that he wasn't being allowed to be with the "normal" girl he adored and suddenly the media would've gone nuts. So she let him make his own decisions in hopes that he'd be happy.

Unfortunately, Willie Boy has been spoiled and has come to expect the world to revolve around his wishes, which, imo, is why he couldn't snap up an aristocrat for a bride. Kate doesn't mind because she's a social climber, the perks were what she was after but for those born to that class they already knew his family was nuts, add to that the raging manchild that is Willie and you can see why the upper crust girls weren't willing to jump in. The family may have power but they seem tainted, which is probably why the royal grandchildren are all dating outside of their social circle.


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: CarryingOn on May 03, 2015, 06:26:25 pm
No one forced Charles into a marriage with Diana and certainly not the Queen. She's done a lot of stuff but forcing her children to marry anyone, she certainly hasn't. The woman is notorious for not interfering with her children's love lives. That was nothing but PR spin from Charles. The only person who had any power to stop him from marrying Camilla was the Queen and amazingly enough her name never pops up in the equation, which is strange because she's not immune to rumor, gossip, and leaks. The only people who disproved of Camilla were Charles' uncle and grandmother, whom had no legal power to stop him marrying anyone. The fact is that Charles never asked Camilla to marry him, he wasn't ready to get married, and that was despite any feelings he felt for any woman. He went off to the navy, I believe it was, and by the time he came back and was ready to get married and everyone said it was time to stop pussyfooting around, Camilla had married someone else and the majority of his marital prospects didn't want to marry him. Also, if Im not mistaken, I read that Philip sent Charles a letter saying to fish or cut the line when it came to Diana. So marry her if he really wanted her or leave her alone. He always had the option of walking away, he decided not to.

The Queen's problem, which turned into Charles and William's problem, is that they all have a sense of entitlement. They feel entitled to do whatever the f*ck they want, when the f*ck they want, and to whoever the f*ck they want. It doesn't matter and why should it. These are people who don't know the meaning of the word consequence. They've never had any.

On top of that, we have two generations of neglectful parenting. Elizabeth wasn't there for her kids, not when they needed her to be there for them, and give proper guidance. As I said above, she's notorious for not getting involved in her children's personal lives but also another thing that pops into my mind, that some would consider small but I think says a lot, is the sucky grades these kids ALL but one got in school. You'd think tutors would be on speed dial but no. I think that's just the tip of the iceberg on all the issues of life that she let them flounder on. Charles dropped his kids, when they needed him the most, to boost Camilla's image and to this day most people still only tolerate her. Both continue on buying expensive material things for their kids, indulging them, and covering up their poor decision making.

Everyone in this family wants to have their cake and eat it too. I'm sick of it. Just makes you want to bring the guillotine back...

There was a pic of Kate and Carole at the farm recently where Carole appears to be telling an RPO what to do - RPO looks thoroughly ticked off.  I think she is just pushing the boundaries too hard - he can see that - but she is not listening to him.  So problems between them.

I would think that if she is interfering to the point of passing off surrogate babies as Kate's own, she is creating a deliberate falsehood, children are being born that are not eligible to inherit the throne and therefore I would think that issue would constitute as treason.

William doesn't get it... He's driving up the price of pics by not letting ANY be taken. Like it or not, there will be demand. It's a natural result of the position he's in. Honestly there is some danger in this obsession with privacy- but instead of complaining, he could take matters into his own hands, while simultaneously making the people who DO actually like him very happy, by simply releasing a few pics once in a while. Seems Will is caught in a tug of war between his obsession with privacy and the natural consequences of his role and privilege.

I actually agree that he has something to hide.  No normal, sane person in a sane and normal situation would go to these lengths, especially when he knew the location of this property from the word go,  Not as though some alien spaceship has just suddenly lifted it up and plonked it down there is it.  Let him get granny to build him something in a corner of Balmoral, all covered and closed in by trees, with no public access to anyone.  Oops, forget that, we don´t want he spending any more of the taxpayers money to build housing for him, he has his intheritance from his mother, dip into it and use that.  Ooops, we think he already did, for Dingley Dell.

Seriously, HM ought to just the arrogant little so and so into touch, remove all funding, RPO´s etc, take away their titles, chauffeurs, cars, helicopter, take back KP and AH, and let them get on with it, use his own money and find a career for himself.

He wants normal, let him have normal.

Look at the site that photo came from.  Note the new swimming pool we paid for.  Anyway, look at how big that house is and the privacy it provides.  Bill meddleton is a raving loony as far as we can see.

^Sad fact, the taxpayer fund his whole lifestyle, right down to the last roll of toilet paper and box of tissues. So yes, he does owe them something, he knows that and just doesn´t want to give anything back. Are all the UK taxpayers responsible for his mothers death   -  I don´t think so.  He has a luxurious and privileged lifestyle, and the medds tax funded too by the look of it these days. All take and not give.

If you go to the site above you will note this at the bottom, still paying the charade

Also today, word from The Telegraph about the Cambridges going on another royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess will be expected to carry out a royal tour abroad next spring, as by then it will have been two years since their last major foreign trip, to Australia and New Zealand, which took place in the spring of 2014. Their most likely destination is the Caribbean, where nine of the 16 Commonwealth realms – the countries where the Queen is Head of State – are located.

If the couple do make the 10,000-mile round trip to the Caribbean, they would almost certainly take their two children with them, in the same way that they took Prince George to Australasia.


How does that fit in with the 21 month maternity leave.  So many lies and smoke screens, wish they would get their act together. As I have said many times on here, I believe nothing that comes out from KP or BP press offices until it is proven fact. They all have ologies in lying by the look of it.

^haha, yes, you are correct there- it would almost certainly confirm their Marie Antoinette-esque privileged-but-playing-normal lifestyle, but at the same time, at least it would make them 'seem' more honest about their lives. I wouldn't be wondering so much about what lies beneath the secrecy. In that sense, if they do have something to hide, it'd be a great pr move. I personally would like to see her post pics of all her supposed homemaking projects and maybe some of this photography we've heard (but not seen) she's so good at! Cause at this point with them, without proof, I see it all as PR lies... 
The one photo she took and shared honestly made me say 'wtf...' Looked like a pic taken on accident, lol. Has she improved since then? We'll never know...

Cause even though I suspect Kate would actually like to do something like that (if she's not too lazy, of course) William would never in a million years allow it, and it seems he has the last word in her PR and press dealings...

^^ They're never going to be honest about the way they live their life, though. They already know the way they live: perks but no work, doesn't and will never fly with the public, which is why they spend so much time trying to fake so much bullsh^t. If they ever did it, the feed would be contrived. It would be clogged with posed pictures of Kate pretending that she's actually involved in the children's lives and too many ugly Meddleton faces trying to make it look as though they're one big happy Meddleton family. I would throw in pictures of William and Kate looking so 'in love' but we all know that he's not around much, if at all, to even fake it. There would be no photography projects because when she last showed off her horrible work, the critics didn't hold back and didn't mince words. When the reviews came back, the photography dried up. If she's not being lauded than she's not going to put herself out there but quite frankly she was never serious about photography anyway. If my memory serves me correct, she was offered the opportunity to work with Mario Testino or some other big hotshot photographer, as an intern I believe, and she turned it down. I'm sure Kate would love to do it though, but only in the contrived way that I described. She doesn't want anyone to see the true her, because she true her is nothing: she doesn't have smarts, she doesn't have a work ethic, she doesn't have determination past Diana's ring on her ugly finger, and she doesn't even have looks as a saving grace. William of course would never allow it and she couldn't do it anyway, because though we know it's false, on the surface, she also plays into, and on, his unhealthy inane paranoia of the press.

Also, an article here from the DM, which I find quite interesting.  Wimpo wants to give the two sprogs the childhood Diana had.  Really, her mother left home, there was a divorce, and Diana was unhappy.  Do the people who write these articles actually do any research??

On the whole, Diana had it better than most; it's the same with William. Diana's childhood, however complicated by Raine's formality, it was filled with more opportunists and Diana did do a lot of travel and a lot of sightseeing and lived a more than comfortable, a privileged life until she married.

I don't think Diana or William suffered half as much as the untitled and poor; I'm sick of hearing about poor Diana and poor William all the time. Past is past. Being a kid from a divorced home does not make you unique.

-Diana had a miserable childhood and William is making sure his own kids are very happy. He wants them to be normal like Diana was - and not "royal" like Kate's upbringing. I read in the Mirror that George and Charlotte will go to state schools - not the exclusive Marlborough College like Kate and Princess Eugene did or Oxford University like her grandfather Peter Middleton did - who flew planes with Prince Philip. I *despise* Kate's posh family.  :akasha:

-Obvious PR is obvious. Anything to distract us from the miserable and lonely existence these poor kids are going to have thanks to their paranoid father; emotionally stunted, self-obsessed, lazy mother; and grasping, controlling/overbearing grandmother. Thank God for their nannies though - I especially hope that George's nanny stays for the next 20 years; judging photos we've seen of them together (especially versus the ones of him and his mother at the farm) she's his one spot of true happiness.  :James:

And check out one of the responses to this one (really, Carole, you vicious hag?)-Another troll insanely jealous of Catherine because William married her and not them!  :Kate:

They have moved to Norfolk for greater privacy and to further conceal Kate's deficits. She has had a surgical operation on her head. She is remote and non spontaneous with no opinions of her own. As she came out of the hospital in very high heels she dangled Charlotte over her elbow like a doll - one handed. The baby's head wasn't supported at all. Katy is incapable and there has been a cover up.

Isn't all normal talk just bullshit!  If they wanted a normal life Kate would have been sent to a state school.  Why then were she and her siblings sent to private school?  Answer: To snag a better life, whether the intention was PW at the time or not, CM wanted HER children to go to private school so they wouldn't be thought of as normal.  Now they are trying to make us believe that state schools are the better alternative.   Right, who are they kidding!  Do they really think we believe this dribble????!??  If he wants to be normal, PW should have married someone that went to a state school.  He's going to normal himself right into a council house.

You know, I will never get used to the foolishness of men at the top like William; he and others like him sincerely believe that someone like Kate would give them a second glance if not for their status. This is why I dislike the nonstop gushing over Kate's middle class values; a lot of members of the middle class are complete and unabridged hypocrites when it comes to stuff like status. Sweet as candy to the title and bank account, but jerks to anyone they view as beneath them. If William were a normal bloke, Kate would pass him by and of course, Carole would kick him out rather than kiss up to him all the time. I wish for once, that these upper class men would stop and use their brains for once in regards to the way they view women like Kate. FOR ONCE, be a realist.

First, Diana wasn't normal and didn't have a normal upbringing.

Second, Willaim's life was not miserable, it was LOADED with opportunity and LOADED with endless abundance.

Third, Kate was just as much a participant as her mother in climbing, if William would face that, he would see her for who she really is.

In all honesty this is what his grandmother should do: put him in a council house.  Leave him, his wife and two kids there for a year.  It's called tough love and it is used on many normal people everyday.  
Boy, you want to live normally, well here it is: No helicopter rides, no range rovers, no motorcycles, no polo matches, no FIFA presidency, no country manor house.  Get yourself to and from work (Yes you can keep the 60k job) and use the income to pay for everything you will require to live.  Call me in a year, and by the way, any debt you incur from buying fancy stuff you can't afford will mean you have to pay it back when you come back in to the fold.  Therefore, be prepared for hard labour if you expect me to pay off the lines of credit incurred over the yearly income of 60k.  Good luck, have fun, off you go.  Signed HM

Diana had a very privileged background and HER family were the Middletons of the 18th century - they used any and every means at their disposal to get in with the royals. Hence, the dysfunctional background she came from came full circle.

Billy must have some deep-seated psychological issues that are been indulged far too long. He's a man in his thirties, for crying out loud. He really does not have the capacity to think of anybody but himself.

If he doesn't have a clue by now about how his mother, wife, and Council Caro have worked the system, then he deserves everything he has coming at him. No sympathy at all. And this is the person deluded sugars think should bypass Charles when the Queen passes on.

Kate is smug and knows that the system won't "out" her - she thinks she has it in the bag. They both are living off their delusions now.

"Thinks" being the operative word here.  She can look as smug as she likes, every dog has his day.  I am sorry to say that she is delusional and in la la land if she thinks she is safe and secure for life  -  but then would expect no less if she is lacking as many brain cells as her mother.  The higher they fly, the longer the drop.  As the old saying goes, be careful of who you trample on when on the way up, you might need them when you fall down.

Diana had a very privileged background and HER family were the Middletons of the 18th century -

Hardly the 18th century...more like the 15th century when John Spencer (born around 1460) received his Baronetage.
From that moment on, the patrilneal line of Diana was all baronets, Earls and one younger son of an earl.

So we are talking about 500 years of history. And that history came with certain privileges, but also certain duties that were transferred to Diana from her birth onwards. And that includes the necessity to serve people less priviledged.
Diana did that, she helped people, ranging from the homeless to Aids patients and victims of landmines.

Kate just doesn't have a clue because she was never raised with the need to serve, the need to 'proof' you are worthy of your nobility (as one Dutch friend of mine was said, she is a baroness herself). Kate just saw the priviledged side of the peerage because she is incapable of digging deeper. She lacks the world-view, the intelligence and the curiosity.

The difference is that their wealth and background is not obscure or questionable; they've been part of society since the 15th century. I don't think their money comes from trafficking or money laundering (as we've believed).

No the Spencers were NOT the Middletons of the 18th century; they NEVER would have let their daughters mess around, cohabit with men before marriage, and they never would have dared let a daughter wait as a beck and call girl for a literal decade while getting mocked in the press. Right after they got their baronetcy, they followed the rules and moved up and as for their wealth, sheep herding and wool sales are the source of their wealth, nothing is obscure.

They had no problem having their daughters suck up to Royalty and currying royal favour to get what they wanted - and they had no loyalty to boot - they seemed to change allegiances as easily as the wind blew, so yes, they do have something in common with the Middletons. Some of Diana's own ancestors were Royal mistresses.

George might not even appear on the balcony at the Trooping, IMO. He is at a very wriggly stage at under two and I don't think he'd sit comfortably in a carriage for the procession. It'll be Harry in the carriage with Kate and Camilla again, I'm sure. Why can't they give Harry the Colonelcy they were talking about a few months ago.

He can't get PR about being part of a war like his granny or his grandfather or his uncle or his brother so he's got to find the 'hero' angle in another manner.  And also in a manner that is less taxing to him and where he's less likely to be hurt.  Whomever named him WIMPO was right on target.

In my opionion, he is doing this to get points for when he is closer to the throne.  It has nothing to do with helping people but everything to do with helping himself.

Kate has passed a Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) Advanced Open Water Diver qualification

Duchess of Cambridge qualifies as advanced diver
Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, has taken an advanced diving course that means she can keep up with her husband when he goes shark-diving in Mustique

From the article:
Quote
It is the most advanced qualification taken by most recreational divers, as going any deeper involves inherent risks such as nitrogen narcosis, a sensation similar to drunkenness.

Sounds like Kate will have no problem with that then...seeing how often she stumbled out of nightclubs completely wasted, she must be used to that feeling.

I wonder when Kate got that qualification. They say she did so in Mustique. But the last time they were at Mustique, Kate was already pregnant 4,5 months. Diving at that stage in a pregnancy is highly dangerous and no diving school will allow it. Or did the couple travel to Mustique after Charlotte was born? It would explain a thing or two.

As ever  don´t believe a word of it.  How could she go scuba diving years ago and only now have had training. Trying to make it look as though she has actually done something with her time. Doubt advisable to go in the last couple of months either, you need a lot of time and put in a lot of work for that, not like sitting shelling peas is it.  Nah, lies, smoke screen and mirrors again, not believing a word of it.  In any event, we all know bill medd doesn´t like being around her, why would he want her scuba diving with him  :tehe: :tehe:

^ Add to that: I'm lost as to why they felt the need to announce it and think that this in any way makes her look good. It's not as if this qualification is going to allow her to become some deep diving version of a lifeguard, not that she'd ever risk her life for someone else. It's just one more useless thing that she's f&cked off to do, instead of doing something that is actually contributes to Britain and/or the Commonwealth.

Interesting though isn't it.  Sprog II delivered on 2 May, tired, stay at home mother whom we are told does "everything" at AH, earth mother, housewife, gardener, you name it she is whizz at it.  Organised a whole christening all on her own, took the first "official" photos of sprog I and II, and yet we are supposed to believe in the middle of all that she found the time to achieve the highest certificate you can get for personal scuba diving. Am I missing something here, because none of it adds up to me.  And no, it does not deflect that dire christening from peoples minds, that was one thing that will never go from my mind, "Debacle of the Year" as far as I am concerned, utterly ridiculous from start to finish.  Also, if my memory serves me right, was she not, in between all the above activities, resting quietly with orangina send her, every three days (fresh?) nutritional juices to help her get her energy back and etc.

As ever, more lies, smoke screens and mirrors, they never fail to deliver them and make themselves look utterly and completely stupid.

Even Richard Branson has been speaking out against shark killing + The Guardian had ran a conservation piece mentioning "They (the charity) wanted to get rid of the idea that only way to find out more about sharks was diving in tropical seas."

It sounds impressive but that PADI qualification is the most basic level they offer.  I got the same on my honeymoon 10 years ago in a matter of days.  PADI is what all the carribean islands use so if I had to bet, she got this while on their last Mustique holiday but since she was pregnant and pregnant mothers can't scuba dive they can't say that....or they snuck off on holiday in the last few weeks.


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: starsailor on August 07, 2015, 04:49:38 pm
I still think that this is one of ma's leaks because Waity is desperate for good PR. Let's say she 'gave birth' and went diving shortly after the 'birth', it would be unhygienic to go diving because the episiotomy has to heal and there would be the lochia. And you need rest. As for the trip to Mystique because of ma's birthday, since Waity and W were not seen at all and didn't attend her party, I doubt that they actually went there. Plus everything looked cobbled together again. Like ma's usual leaks  :laugh:

PADI offers a range of courses - from the most basic at resorts so people can enjoy a bit more of the place they are visiting (I did that on a holiday to Samoa about 10 years ago - just the basic) but they also offer a lot of other courses that build on that basic course as well.

The Advanced Diving Certificate is appears is being reported that she has now qualified to have requires more work than the basic PADI certificate. This is the PADI website information on the Advanced Open Water Diver Course https://www.padi.com/scuba-diving/padi-courses/course-catalog/advanced-open-water-diver-course/ which indicates what is required for this level rather than the more basic level which is either this http://www.padi.com/scuba-diving/padi-courses/course-catalog/padi-scuba-diver/ (the most basic) or this https://www.padi.com/scuba-diving/padi-courses/course-catalog/open-water-diver/. I did the first one in Samoa although they also offered the second one but at my resort they didn't offer the advanced level but had to take you to another resort on the island to do that, which they did.

Yes, ma busy leaking. I think she's trying to take the focus off Waity, because W is not around and she's not working. I wonder what happened with the charities? Did they drop her? Or is it because the rf perhaps said 'adios' to Waity? It's telling that they don't schedule anything for her anymore, and that she's still on 'maternity leave'.

I was chatting with a good friend of mine via email, the topic of the odious couple allegedly being in Mustique but no mention of the sprogs came up. She had this to say.

If it's true, then what wonderful parents they are!  I suppose the sprogs have been dumped with Cruella and Nanny maria  - which may explain the photos of Cruella and Piglet on the beach last week without Mater and Pater. Odd how wasty is a Patron of a charity for abused and neglected children, but she is no role model of maternal devotion, unless it's for PR purposes.  Hypocritical sl**per!

 lol lol Cue juggers now, to admit they were in Mustique and throw some photoshopped piccies together to make us think the sprogs were there, or deny the holiday.  Bit strange though, that article from eonline re bill medd being at that shooting incident in Norfolk, with families waving to him, and EAAA spokesperson states categorically that bill medd was not there -  a tad difficult to be in a chopper in Norfolk when you are having a ball in Mustique isn´t it.  Thank goodness no families named for waving at him, they would look right fools wouldn´t they  :laugh:

I reckon she got that certificate, if it exists, back in January, but could not release the info until after sprog II arrived on this earth.

There for about a week if I recall.   Sprog I must have been about 6-8 months old at the time.  I think it was the month after he was seen in Spain with Jecca in tow.

And the papers wrote something other than about her fashion. They wrote about Kate being moved by a mother of an alcoholic. If Kate expressed a stronger opinion (like Harry said 'I don't like selfies'), it would be in the newspapers.

@IkonPictures I think you're right that they'll be entirely happy if the coverage dies because they'd rather live a peaceful life.


However, he does seem to have turned turtle, he was dissing her all the time, and then now he applying so much sugar it makes me want to vomit.  Wonder if he realise how ridiculous it makes him look.  Amanda Platell another one, never a good word to be said for cath medd and now she is puring on the sugar. 

The trouble is, no mater what they are doing, it is not working.  They are know as lazy, work shy, arrogant, self entitled, spongers on the taxpayer.  Even the sprogs are not getting wonderful adoration as they expected.  How can you respect bill and cath medd, they do nothing that does not suit them.  What do they do with all their time?  She does nothing, and I think there is more than one nanny, we just never see them.  A full complement of staff to do every last thing.  So what does she do all day, lounge around smoking, drinking wine and shopping online. And him, when does he go to EAAA, and it is highly doubtful he has anything other than a co-pilot position as he has never completed enough solo hours to gain a full pilot licence, or if he has been given one then it is not because he earned itm but because, as with the medals atc, granny makes sure they are given, not earned.

Shock as Princess Diana's former bodyguard Ken Wharfe SLAMS Royals

JEREMY CORBYN has an unlikely ally in the form of Ken Wharfe.

By ADAM HELLIKER
PUBLISHED: 00:01, Sun, Dec 13, 2015 | UPDATED: 16:32, Sun, Dec 13, 2015

The man who served as a royal protection officer for 16 years, most notably for the Princess of Wales, declares he is now so disappointed with the Royal Family he has turned from monarchist to republican.

Wharfe tells me: “When I was a protection officer for Diana I was a monarchist because I thought the royals were good for the country.

"But I’ve come to the conclusion that they’re not a very nice group of people.”

Wharfe, 68, who wrote a best-selling book, Closely Guarded Secret, about his time with Scotland Yard’s royal protection unit, fears that the image of some of the “more workshy, minor royals” may jeopardise the monarchy’s future.

“There’s a danger that unless the Family is seen to be achieving something then people like Corbyn and the republican movement will become every stronger.”
e believes the solution is that the monarchy should slim down to include just the sovereign, the heir and maybe two others.

“People like Prince Andrew and the Duke of Kent should go. Ultimately I see the British royals going the way of European monarchies, but I’m not certain that Prince Charles wants to slim the operation down that much.”

Not even William may be able to secure its future, says Wharfe, who now has little regard for the prince who he used to play with while William was growing up at Kensington Palace and Highgrove.

“He was always a sly little boy, and now he’s become arrogant and spoilt. I hear from people who work for William that he can be very difficult.

“I liked Harry better and I feel sorry for him because he was never really able to engage in his military career.

"But I think he’s the answer to the family’s longevity, and I bet if there was a vote on who should accede to the throne; the people would go for Harry.”

He concludes ominously: “I’m not sure the next generation will even care about the royal family at all. They may simply become irrelevant.”

She doesn't need to travel very far to reach a helipad as helicopters, for the royals, are able to land in Kensington Gardens and also lands are Sandringham so it would have saved her travel time - definitely. Whether she should have used this means of transport is another question but HM has to approve.

One of the commenters said the difference is that Kate was on "official duties" and HM was off duty. Still seems a bit wasteful. I would think it's more of a security risk having the 90 year old standing monarch on a commuter train than the consort to the heir to the heir.

It's all about perception.  I don't care if it's fundamentally ok or efficient or already in the budget.  That's meaningless when it comes to the overall look of the thing and if the media is latching onto it, it's not good ink for Kate. 

Smart move on HM's part because, for me, there's just a whiff of 'planned PR' here and it doesn't work in WK's favor.

Not sure where to put this but I ran across this and just had to share. Mods if it's wrong thread please move to correct one. It's a bit of the behind the scenes type of thing from when William was 3 (one where he was playing on the piano with Harry) and after his mother left him to sleep while parents where having the interview part, he goes up to her and starts punching her in the leg for letting him sleep and making him miss out by not being there.

I just think that it's like an omen of future things to come or something, cause to this day he's still using her as a punching bag when he wants something, and secondly what sort of little brat starts punching his moms leg because he didn't get his way? :snob: :thumbsdown:


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: meememe on February 12, 2016, 06:30:50 am
Quite a few kids - and older ones than 3 - punch and kick if they don't get their own way. Many of them are at school and do it - to other students, parents and teachers. It is not unusual at all, especially with the more modern 'no touchy' type of parenting that became common after Dr Spock's book came out in the 1960s.


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: Miss Hathaway on February 12, 2016, 05:17:01 pm
William just slapped at Diana's skirt a couple of times, which was billowy and absorbed the very light slap.  She ignored him and walked over to get Harry.   Not unusual behavior of a sleepy, grumpy 3 yr old, in my opinion.


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: YooperModerator on February 12, 2016, 07:13:39 pm
Having raised boys, there's a huge difference between flailing about wildly when tired and finding a direct target like PW did here.  If you look carefully, one of the movements is indeed a punch.  I've watched the film a few times and that's behavior that is 'normal' for him, to just attack and PD is also used to it because she ignored it.  There were many other options that PW had to get his mother's attention:  tug at her skirt, reach for her hand, throw something or yell out her name.  Direct, physical attack is unacceptable and does indeed say a lot, to me, about William's general "Don't you know who I am?" mentality.

So, from a parent's perspective, I wouldn't allow this to continue and have stopped in my tracks if any of my sons hit me anywhere no matter what the mood and removed him on the spot.  Punishment to follow.  There have to be limits and respect for one's parents or that pattern continues unchecked and you have yourself a monster on your hands with zero accountability.

I didn't see this as a direct, physical attack.   It was much less than I had thought it would be from reading the posts.   Diana -- as with most hands-on mothers -- knew her son's temperment and what works with him.  Sometimes ignoring an outburst is the best approach, rather then giving attention to the bad behavior.  It all depends on the child.    Diana certainly wasn't averse to spankings when needed, so it appears she read each situation and responded accordingly, which is the way it should be, in my opinion.

Good parenting is paying attention, consistently, to bad behavior as well as good.  Sometimes, yes, it's wise to ignore a child and an example of that is a full-blown tantrum.  You remove the child and let them work it through until they're ready to behave properly.  The only response to his hitting his mother in public was to kneel down, grab his hands and say 'No' in a firm voice in front of everybody in the room.  That would've done the trick.  This is the world and this is how the world sees you is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child.

A puppy nipping at your ankles is one thing but if left unchecked, that turns into biting.  No.  PW, however small he was at the time, punched at his mother.  There's no question about it, to me.  It explains a great deal and I think he was and continues to be a spoiled brat and used to getting away with everything.  I've never seen any signs of a grown up PW being self-accountable for what happens in his life.  He attacks anything that he sees as disrupting his world not working with it as a balanced adult would.


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: Miss Hathaway on February 12, 2016, 09:48:24 pm
But neither of us parented William Wales.  Diana was best suited to know how to deal with the situation and since he settled down when he got no attention from his behavior, that seemed to be the right course in that situation at that time.   For your son or mine, we may have seen differently.

Willam's issues as an adult stem from the fact, in my opinion, that the parent willing to be the disciplinarian died when he was in his teens.  His father, though sympathetic and loving, left his sons largely in the care of others while he continued on his course of making his mistress acceptable for marriage.  He seemed and continues to seem to be frightened of crossing them.   Never a good sign in a parent.     The Queen is famous for being hands off.   The two most famous boys in the world were lacking what they needed most:  firm guidance.   Diana had her faults, but she had a firm idea of how they were to be educated and what roles they would play as royals.  No doubt, she would have had firm ideas about what kind of wives they should have, as well.  A tragedy.

He doesn't seem to have any control over his impulses; and yes, it's because he has never REALLY being told "no". For William, it's always been "me, me, me, me, me, me, me, me" and it's nauseating.  :king: No sense of care for others, a sense of noblesse oblige, you name it. One only sees petulance and arrogance in all his expressions. I don't think Diana instilled in him too much real concern and empathy for others in his character. Sorry, but she didn't, and I guess to an extent, Charles didn't as well. Even as a child he was known to be "sly" - and this is from people who day to day contact with him.

Hasn´t changed since he was a kid then.  I despise the way they always blame the parents, he is an adult now and knows right from wrong, the days for stamping his feet and going into a temper tantrum to get his own way are long gone, at nerly 34 he should know better.  Obviousl that streak is in his make up and he does appear to be unable to control it, although I rather suspect he has never tried to control it  -  people are scared of him and just give in all the time.  IMO he is a most unpleasant individual in every way, he has even turned unpleasant looking  -  they say what is inside shows on the face - sure does seem that way with the unpleasant bill medd.

Just not on, getting his RPO´s to drive at more than double the speed limit for the area just to avoid bill medd having his photo taken on his way to the wedding Sebastian Shakespeare is telling us he and cath medd did not attend.  Alleged he had a companion with him (not cath medd).  Going 50 mph in a 20 mph zone is incredibly dangerous to the public, there is a reason it is a 20 mph zone, and the met police of all people should be aware of these thing - someone could have been killed or seriously injured just to cover bill medd´s a$$ - wrong at every level.   Those RPO´s should get raked over the coals for this.

Then, as thermometers hit an unbearable 41C, they sat for 25 seconds, the initial silence broken by the clattering of camera shutters.

Quote
It was also the final act in what has been the most tightly controlled – and one of the most expensive – Royal tours, raising questions about what it will be remembered for.
Nothing was left to chance and there has been at times a lack of spontaneity. Glimpses of the 'real' William and Kate have been sparing. Even the questions at the Taj Mahal had to be submitted in advance.

Quote
This newspaper has been told that the Duke took an active role in the planning, and worked closely with his media advisers.
A variety of camera positions had been painstakingly planned at each engagement to accommodate 100 members of the international media. Part of the problem was the brevity of the seven-day trip, giving it a whistle-stop feel. This is William and Kate's fifth tour overseas – although the first one in which their children have been left behind – and they are said to have been anxious to return home.
Given the criticism that the Cambridges have taken in recent months, caution is understandable. But this was planning taken to an extraordinary degree. Even the colour of the rose petals the couple scattered at the Banganga Water Tank in Mumbai had been agreed beforehand.

"There were press at the bottom and halfway, none for an hour in between. So yes"


Oh boy, I do hope some sneakky paparazzi took snaps of Berkshire Barbie touching up her makeup & climbing on a horse  lol

Picture #4 in the article: "Diana was famously photographed alone on this marble bench but the image of William and Kate, sat together, will forge new memories of the iconic building for the couple"
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3543842/KATIE-NICHOLL-love-Kate-Wills-lay-Diana-s-ghost-rest-Taj-Mahal.html

Why do "they" need new memories of the Taj Mahal ? Diana had no connection to Kate. Kate doesn't have bad memories of that site, anymore than I do or the guy at the fish & chip shop. I have an exboyfriend who was the same age as Harry & lost his mom in his teens, too. I sometimes still say to him (and he agrees with) "I wish I had gotten a chance to meet your mom.  It sounds like we would've gotten along"; but I can't imagine going so far as to say "I miss your mom + I need new memories of a moment I wasn't even a part of." Considering they don't mind that Anmer is where Charles & Camilla used to meet up during their affair, it's a bit odd "they" are bothered by a site in India (yes, I know Charles' team has denied that rumor)

Interesting aside that got me thinking.  A BBC tv drama called undercover. The story is basically an undercover police officer has a relationship with a human rights lawyer, starting in the mid 90s. He never tells her, they have a family etc. This actually happened btw. Anyway her best mate works for a newspaper, looks mid market tabloid like the DM. The Royal correspondent loses his job which she is given.  The Royal correspondent turns round to the woman and says " well the house of Windsor want rid of me. alough everyone knows the truth, I am the only one who is actually getting it out there." Later in the story, he is shown as he is a veteran as having many sources. I just found that interesting. The story is set in today.

Not strange as we know William and Kate are not the happy, intact family that they portray themselves as.

Neither have figured out what they want, in truth they have not the brains or intelligence to work their way out of a paper bag. And they do know what they want out of life  -  A FREE RIDE AT TAXPAYER EXPENSE, NO QUESTIONS ASKED AND GIVE NOTHING IN RETURN. Sorry for the caps, but yes, I do  feel strongly about their lack of consideration for anyone and everyone.  Let´s face it, if you are brainless with zero intelligence you will never work out what you want.  The rf can push them out there, but they make it even worse really, because it is quite obvius to see they don´t want to be there, most of the time they can´t wait to push off, glazed faces, little interaction with the people, waste of time and money sending them.  More drivel, lies and smoke screens.  The rf need to realise  - the boat departed a long time ago.  Five years of lies, deceit, and this dire charade, there is no going back.  Many never liked council cath in the first place, but were willing to give her a chance.

Look at all the mishpas, flashgates etc.  And still she does not take heed or learn from it.  They do the engagements because they are forced to, and it shows big time.

A farmer, now that is a joke  -  she is a lazy baggage through and through.  The wife of a farmer works dawn to dusk, helps in the fields/with the animals, and works her fingers to the bone.  Erhmmm, does that sound like council cath?  Nope, not one bit  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:  Bone idle right through the bone, could not have chosen anything worse to say could she, the wife of a farmer works jolly hard  -  unless of course you husband is some aristo and has estate managers etc.  For most women it is a hard life with very little return. The mere thought of that shemale working her fingers to the bone is so laughable, it really is a joke   lol lol lol

I get so sick of her putting up a front that she doesn't have the same choices as others. She wasn't born a royal and had limitless opportunities to lead a life of her own choosing. No one made her get involved with William and the BRF certainly didn't want her in his life in any serious capacity. The only person stopping her from doing what she wanted was herself, no one else.

Yeah! She made her own choices but cannot own up to them - stuck in her petulant, teenage mindset.  :there: But Mummy Carol doesn't care - she had what she always wanted.  :spy:

Kate went along with it willingly enough. Kate was happy for the invitations, the perks, the ability to turf others out of the nightclub bathrooms, pushing the Yorkies around, going on private jets to exotic locales, that kind of thing. Throw in the discounts and deference and frankly I don't believe that she regrets any of it. She just puts up a front since she likes to believe she's just as much a part of that set since birth and likes to moan about not being in control of her life.

When William dropped her in 2007 she had a glorious chance to lead a life of her own choosing, but she ended up throwing it away on getting him back via the most public temper tantrum ever. The press threw one as well and she basically ended up getting him back and whining about press intrusion and going back to suing photographers and demanding privacy, but not at all walking away from society, that would have been glad to see her go.

Near the end, almost up until the engagement, it was clear that William wouldn't stop her if she wanted to leave.

^ I think your right KF she had the medias help and she could have become a farmer/jam maker/photographer/ art historian? :- , in 2007 but no she wanted a life of no responsibilities. So I'm glad she's stuck living with a grown man that still admits he acts 16.

But I would change it, I think he meant he acts 16 all the time. Which wouldn't surprise me and is probably the most insightful thing he has ever said. In psychology they say that you can stay emotionally stunted at the age of something extremely dramatic happing to you i.e. His mom dying at 15 around that age. It explains a lot of his stupid life choices.  ;)


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 16, 2016, 10:27:46 pm
Right.

I think that by marrying into the RF, she deliberately abdicated responsibility for the direction her life goes in. She knew that once she was in, she would be able to use palace constrictions as a reason for her not working or doing her duties. What she did during her courtship was in fact, a preliminary for her as a kind of consort. Like most people with MAJOR warning signs, she basically ended up showing that she wasn't going to be a responsible, stable adult consort, but would in fact be as she is now. Her inability to get along with anyone, her unwillingness to get her life in order, and now look at how she is as a consort. Yet, ironically, she wanted to do photography, historian, designer, but I think she preferred to do it as a jump-off after her marriage, 'find herself' via various now off limits career choices.

We heard how she wanted to design the livery of her staff, how she wanted to pursue a career in photography, and how she wanted to do all sorts of stuff. Now the palace has forbidden it mainly since she's not supposed to be doing this, she's supposed to be doing charity work and raising the profile of numerous charities and channeling her career energy into charity and appearances and looking spiffy at banquets. I do think her wistfulness in public is a passive dig at the Court for not letting her run wild and not letting her mooch while 'finding herself.'

For the sake of sanity, the press needs to stop writing about them or covering for them. Each time the press does something slightly wrong (in their eyes), they go all hysterical. One minute courting the press, the next minute they're destroying careers. It isn't just wrecking careers and lawsuits, now they're determined to create new laws and send people to jail.

They are liars and expect fare play from the press but continue to not play fare with them. I don't know another grown man that would act this way. Just like on this current tour of Canada. They both act like they are still just a bunch of college kids on a forced school trip. They don't take it seriously; they laugh at inappropriate times; they don't respect other people's time; they can sound down right rude to their Canadian Fans; This Tour Even Williams clothes are inappropriate.  I know he hates the press but he still needs them to keep his family's job. He can't seem to grasp this!

He even seeems to have disdain for his own people. How else can you explain how he uses the  taxpayers money to live a life of privacy and privilege. At the same time not giving much back in return. He is a user and really unfit to ever be king. A King or Queen should love their country but more importantly their people. Now do you ever see a look of love and care for the people he meets? No. It's clenched jaws, inappropriate jokes, and often William does this>

The only way he has ever stepped up is by mimicking the behavior of the foul Middletons. The Sewer Rat Viper has taught him since he married into this grand family to do the omnipresent crotch press which he does constantly now when out in public. He also is in desperate need of a well fitting jock strap so he doesn't display his junk coming and going. His comments to people out in public are getting more inappropriate and juvenile. He is hopeless. He needs to step aside along with his pitiful 2 "children" and move to Amner Hall and remain hidden for the rest of his days.

^^  Whatever platform they use, they are still not playing fair with the UK press at all.  Bill medd, dirty harry, juggers, they should all remember it is the UK taxpayer who funds them/pays salaries, and the UK press should not be pushed aside like that.  Probably think they are getting their revenge for the death of their mother.  I liked Diana, she had something about her, but I am not blind to the fact that she manipulated and courted the press to suit her own ends, she was most certainly no stranger to that and she was part of the problem.  Those two gormless, unpleasant sons of hers should stop and think, the press have ways and means of getting back at them, they are a devious lot, and what goes around comes around.  I for one would not blame the UK press f they want to get their own back.  Reporters need stories, they have to earn their money, unlike the royals, who are given it on a gold platter from the taxpayer, without taxpayer consent.  Wish I could tick a box on my tax form and so no to putting even one penny of my earnings towards keeping that lazy lot.

The Royal Foundation is actually an umbrella organisation that was previously the Princes, but after Kate married in, it became the Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. It has a chairman and administrators the same as any other registered charity and it is audited in the same way. No-one is stealing from anyone.

 The Royal Foundation aims to gather organisations together that are of special interest to the trio of royals like army vets and their families and mental illness and the Foundation draws in large donations and then distributes them out according to need.

 The three royals appear on special days and events devoted to quite a few of these charities and visit them. Heads Together isn't actually a separate charity but a conglomeration of different charities dealing with mentally troubled youth, people with congenital depression etc. Heads Together was actually started by the three royals early this year.

That's not what I meant, and it is stealing when you sit donors around a specific area and make it deliberately difficult for them to be able to speak and interact with other organizations so that the they can donate to them as well. Thereby directing the flow of money away from others and centering it about themselves. Considering how ego-centric they've become this seating arrangement doesn't surprise me in the least.

Niraj Tanna @IkonPictures
Talking of funding Richard, do you know if the royals get heavily discounted or free cars from Audi in return for attending Audi events?


Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter
I've never quite got to the bottom of that but believe they do have a generous deal with Audi. Why do you ask?

Niraj Tanna @IkonPictures
Replying to @RoyalReporter
A few of us were discussing it yesterday. No one seems to know. If an MP had an arrangement with Audi would they need to declare it?


Richard Eden @richardaeden
Audi supply cars free of charge to the #royals

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter
Replying to @IkonPictures
I believe an MP would have to include it on the declaration of interests.



Niraj Tanna @IkonPictures
Understandable that royals attend these events in return for publicity for Audi. Did Harry inadvertently use Meghan for commercial gain?



Niraj Tanna @IkonPictures
Nothing is free of charge. Attending events such as Audi Polo challenge for publicity would clearly cover the costs of any amount of lease.



Niraj Tanna @IkonPictures

Audi is a cracking deal in place. Free cars for publicity. #carsforhonours

HM must be totally thick with zero brain cells.  How many trips does she need to send this vile duo on  -  they are a major let down every time, with no improvement as time goes on.  Maybe the old girl needs to get the optician around, pronto, as she obviusly appears to think they do a good job, where she gets that idea from I have no idea, because they make a total b*lls up every time, and so obvius their body language is stone cold, and neither really want to be there.  HM needs to man up and address the situation, but she never does. Weakest monarch in history for me.

Even without the HG Kate's timing in dodging full time Royal engagements is truly remarkable. If she goes on the November tour, perhaps to Scandinavia, it will be a miracle, IMO. Then after February we aren't likely to see much of her at all. She'll go on maternity leave until June probably and then there will be the August holidays soon afterwards. No programme of  Royal duties for Kate until later next year. Unbelievable!

I think the real insiders, the courtiers, must be seething with resentment. All that scheduling and promises and she shirks again; now it's being reported that all scheduled engagements are going to be canceled and now Kate is going to end up making the courtiers look like uninformed fools.

They should make Kate make those calls and explain why she can't make an appearance.

    Sir Christopher Geidt - the monarch's private secretary - resigned his job in July
    It was the first time that the Queen had ever gotten rid of her private secretary
    Now it has emerged it was due to complaints from Charles and the Duke of York

Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: Alexandrine on March 19, 2018, 07:29:19 pm
It’s interesting about Nicholl. She gets along well with the Middletons but has no problem writing Kate hit pieces. She’s not as close to them as she used to be but still gets along with them. An acquaintance of mine who is a UK journalist gave me a lot of Nicholl spilled tea. She has become a bit of a conversation staple for several reasons.
1. Nicholl met Harry in Covent Garden when they were at the same restaurant. It was a rooftop party and Harry asked the young brunette to join him and his friends at their tables. She did and they got along immediately.
2. Harry later introduced Nicholl to William at a polo match and he also got along with her.
3. Rumors swirled that Harry had a thing for Nicholl because she was an exact replica of Natalie Pinkham, a journalist Harry was seeing casually at the time. It is well known in some circles that Harry’s public girlfriends are blonde but privately he makes a beeline for slender brunettes. The truth is, however, that Harry and William liked Nicholl because they felt they had finally found a reporter in their age group who would write favorably about them. Nicholl was of their generation, was not over-awed by the aristocracy and looked/acted inconspicuous when she attended events with them.
4. Nicholl basically became a part of their circle and grew very close to the York princesses. At this time she had met Kate and Pippa but was more team Chelsy/York. This was an interesting time in Nicholl’s career because she had unheard of access to the royals (Harry made out with a waitress right in front of her, Eugenie would do shots with her in her car before they entered a nightclub) and other reporters felt that lines were being crossed and Nicholl was beginning to think she belonged to that crowd. Rumors spread about a few hookups with Harry… This could have all been professional jealousy from other royal reporters but Nicholl herself has stated in an interview that she had to learn to separate herself from her story and as a royal reporter she had to learn that they were not her real friends, just subjects…interesting.
5. Nicholl never had any doubt that she would be sanctioned to write their biographies because they trusted her. It wasn’t until Nicholl spent time with the Middletons while doing research that she began to like them. Rumor was that Carole is quite chatty and she and Nicholl would talk late into the night long after everyone else had gone to bed.
6. Nicholl liked Kate a lot after getting to know her privately. Nicholl will tell you that Kate and Pippa are stuck up, that is no rumor. Nicholl prefers Kate to Pippa. Nicholl prefers Carole to both of them. Nicholl adored Chelsy but had to pretend to like Cressida to not upset the Yorks. Nicholl is still friendly with the Yorks, especially Eugenie and they would meet for lunch often in NYC (Nicholl was writing for Vanity Fair and Eugenie worked at an auction firm I believe).

 Interesting


Title: Re: Insiders VI
Post by: HRHOlya on March 19, 2018, 10:31:07 pm
^^ Very very interesting. Also the comments under n°8, very very interesting....
I'd also like more, e.g. why does Nicholl like Carole best out of the three Midd women, and Pippa the least?

"I can’t wait to see what was true/false when the unauthorized bios come out in twenty* years. I can tell you that the Kate haters and sugars alike will be very happy "

"That actually saved Nicholl when the phone hacking scandal broke. William was furious at everything that moved but Nicholl’s proximity to the young royals made it clear that the leaks were amateur. She knew much more than what was gleaned from a few voicemails. William became fairly certain it wasn’t her even before those other two reporters were eventually arrested and confessed. Close call for Nicholl. He still despises Tana however. Nicholl’s 180 on Kate is more interesting imo. Nicholl was there at the infamous Kate/York skating party showdown and thought Kate was a snobby glamour girl. Over time, however, they became friends and she saw more to her personality. The real shocker, so I’m told, is the fact that Eugenie is a sweetheart and is far less haughty than Beatrice who is not as well liked. Eugenie gets along with Pippa and James Middleton much to Beatrice’s private horror. Apparently it’s hard for Eugenie to dislike anyone for long. I think she is more like Fergie and Beatrice is more like Andrew. "

Spivey is too much for me tbh. Firstly, no one apparently exists really, they're all fabrications and are "acted" by various people.. Just no. Secondly, and more importantly, he starts off with a surrogacy conspiracy (as it seems) and then totally derails into another matter, trying to prove his point but actually straying way too far from his point and never returning to it. I didn't read the whole thing, I scrolled through, but he starts off in "fake pregnancy" territory and then abseils into "fake identities/ no one exists" and never goes back to the "fake pregnancy" he wanted to prove :- ???
But also that according to him none of them exist :-

^ I did in the private section, but here it is publicly for everyone to read (I highlighted what I found esp interesting, though the whole thing is pure gold, and copied the whole thread also for fear of Palmer deleting  :tehe: )

By Richard Palmer


>>A thread on the Duchess of Sussex. I started on Twitter back in 2009 because I thought it would be fun to give readers a glimpse of life as a royal reporter. Lately, it has not been much fun at all.

At least one of my colleagues has called in the police after threats were made to relatives; another was told she deserved to have acid thrown in her face. We have all faced unpleasant and unfounded accusations of racism towards Meghan.

As a liberal journalist and trade union activist, I can't think of much worse than being called a racist, apart from being accused of murder, r*pe, and p*edophilia.

Trolls on social media are an uncomfortable fact of life for many, especially journalists. Some of my colleagues talked about this earlier this year in interviews with Australia's ABC.

You might remember that when Prince Harry lashed out at some sections of the media over its treatment of Meghan, he also criticised social media trolls, accusing them of racism and sexism. Many of those defending Meghan are as bad in my opinion.

I think there were stories that went over the top and I don't blame Harry and the palace for pushing back. But I also think Harry and the communications team at KP went over the top and bear some responsibility for the way that royal corrs are now treated on social media.

I'm happy to tell Harry that to his face. I really like him and think he is a huge asset for Britain but I think this has gone far enough now.

As someone who likes engaging with readers and believes in being as transparent as possible, I feel I often get blamed for stories that I have never written or that haven't even appeared in my newspaper. Many journalists with similar approaches are now disengaging from Twitter.

So, if this just unleashes a load of foul-mouthed abuse, I might withdraw more and just post links to stories (except I am unhappy with our website's approach to royal stories and as a result the only ones of mine appearing online are versions of stories already in print).

So, to the Duchess of Sussex. Like every royal corr[espondent] and photographer I know, I am delighted she's joined the Royal Family. She's a breath of fresh air, beautiful, and - let's be honest - a new character in the royal soap opera. It all makes for good copy.

Her estrangement from her father and that side of the family is a story. It's what people are talking about. To be honest, I can't think what else there is to say about it but if there is a genuine new line, I will happily write it.

It's not difficult to see why she has frozen that side of the family out. I suspect the story will fade away if she doesn't fuel it.

She does seem to be someone who moves on and discards people from her past so I have no idea if she still wants to be close to her father and half siblings. If she does, I'd suggest (a bit like in a peace process) there needs to be some confidence-building ie no leaking stories.

Some in her family openly admit they see a money-making opportunity here. They're pretty brazen about it but of course there are plenty of others both inside and just outside the Royal Family who have traded on the name.

Princess Diana's brother may have been an excellent US television reporter but might his connection have helped him get the job? How has the former wife of Prince Andrew made a living all these years? How many royals have sold interviews, wedding pictures to magazines?

As for the Duchess of Sussex, I'd like to make a couple of other observations as a reporter who's covered her engagements. Royal rota journalists are being kept further away from her than we were before the wedding. That means we can't hear what she is saying.

If you can't get direct quotes from members of the Royal Family that often makes for dull stories. You go up afterwards and ask what she said. Mr Bloggs said: "The Duchess expressed the hope that women would eventually get the same opportunities as men in this profession." Boring

So, just as with Kate, that inevitably leaves you with little else to write about except what she wore and looked like. They are too lovebirds so it is quite sweet but these stories have limited shelf life.

My hope is that when they come back from their summer break, Meghan will be given a bit of a freer rein to express herself (within earshot of the media) and get stuck into some of the serious topics she wants to tackle. She has the soft power to help many people in this world.

What she wears will always be of interest to some readers, of course, but it doesn't have to be all of the story.

Well this is a very nice article.  Richard obviously likes Meghan and think she's beautiful which she clearly is not. She's an attractive woman but not beautiful. Interesting that he admits she drops people but she doesn't need anymore which is such a bad quality that I'm surprised he likes her. But to each his own.

^^  :urwelcome:

^ I think that is the case for all journos. I think they suck up and have to, even when they don't want to. Write positive pieces to deflect from truths coming out etc. That's why a symbiotic relationship is toxic (it's well known that the Cambs used to (likely still do) trott out the kids in front of the journos in private in exchange for good press, which I find weird as the journos can't even write about that or publish pics; also public photocalls are made journos can and do write about for access to them, those who criticize the Winds have their access removed and become less lucrative to their employers as the papers can't write much anymore wtithout access).
It's quite dirty and very dishonest, who washes whose hand and quid pro quo business. Journalism is really such a shyte show.

So now journos get less access, i.e. have their "privileges" removed and can't do their job, so naturally they are becoming grumpy - to say the least - and might finally actually write some truths.

Over the years every once in a while journos would write some truths about the Cambs, but very soon fawing bs pieces would pop up and news that the Cambs had give private audiences to a select few journos.

I wish they'd just write what they know. I always wonder how much they really know and the secrets they harbour.

"Guidelines": as set up by KP. Then they pretend like they don't stifle others, like when about 10 years ago the duke of I don't remember (a Winds) visited offices I think in Chester, and "advice" from an official in Chester (whose employer are the Winds) that a picture of Diana be taken down. When asked BP said they gave no such orders and would never do that, even though that is a load of bs spin!!
