Bring the Irish Guards a true princess now that Waster can't be bothered :ick:
Wimpo should not cover her behind, this tradition has to be carried out by a female.

Another tradition broken and she has gall; I can't get over how she's literally throwing the role she strove for away with such determination. Even Fergie showed up and did her part to the best and got flamed on a regular basis, often unfairly. I don't think HM should let this farce of a marriage go on any longer. The monarchy is being derided and frankly Kate is so useless to her country that it's mind boggling; the comments are crucifying her and frankly what a huge letdown. These troops likely looked forward to meeting her and enjoying the ritual of shamrocks and she selfishly welshes.

I think so!
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3494700/Kate-Middleton-pulls-presenting-shamrocks-Irish-Guards.html

The battalion, which still draws the majority of its recruits from Northern Ireland, was founded in April 1900 by a royal decree from Queen Victoria to commemorate the Irishmen who died fighting during the Boer War.
The custom of handing the soldiers shamrocks was started by by Queen Alexandra in 1901 and the role was later taken on by the Queen Mother.
Since then the Guards have fought in all the major 20th century conflicts and, more recently, led the British advance into Basra during the Iraq War in 2003.

Waity might have a problem with Northern Ireland for all we know.

 :nervous:
And this.
But now it is understood the duchess will spend the next few weeks with the children ahead of her trip to India and Bhutan with Prince William in April.

Waster arrogantly quips she will be holed up at the hairdresser for the coming MONTH! :stop:

what if she wasn't wanted there. every year her appearance is a major embarrassment for everyone. maybe she se silently booted out ... so that she can spend time with her kids. first the royal work, now family engagements, next is Ascot and the balcony ... and the final straw: the divorce. and if we can dream on further: paternity test ... and out with the alimony and with "mother of the future king" priviledges

As the daughter and wife (now ex) of members of HM forces o can't tell you what a big deal this is. If it's her or them not wanting her, it's a big, big deal. I've not a clue which it is, I suspect it's her, it's unprecedented to have her removed. I do know a couple of people connected to the Irish Guards, and I know there's not the affection there that there had been for other members of the RF. To put it nicely.

Anyway it's sure it doesn't interest her. I wrote 'Walk of Shame' but she has no shame. I just think recent events have been so bad for them it is the first excuse she can get to avoid the event.

Waity and the Bag of Bones did not have the wisdom to see beyond trapping PW -  the required expectations of future royal wife such as duty, loyalty, respecting tradition, observing protocol, having a sense of decorum etc  were not even considered in pursuit of that wretched ring.

Well, I for one, am delighted that Carole's pigeons are gradually coming home to roost and are dropping lots of poop over her and the Cambridge.

Duchess of Cambridge pulls out of presenting St Patrick's Day shamrocks
THE Duchess of Cambridge has left royal watchers and soldiers disappointed after pulling out of presenting St Patrick's Day shamrocks to the Irish Guards.


For the past four years, Kate, 34, has taken on the duty, usually performed by a female member of the Royal Family since Queen Alexandra began the tradition in 1901.

The Queen Mother did it for many years. Princess Anne took up the honour until Kate began in 2012, seemingly continuing the female tradition.

But it is understood that this year, the future Queen wanted to stay at home at Anmer Hall in Norfolk with her two children, Prince George, 2, and 10-month-old Princess Charlotte.


She declined to attend Thursday's ceremony at the headquarters of the 1st Battalion Irish Guards in Hounslow, west London, leaving it to her husband, Prince William, who is Colonel of the regiment.

Aides said that the Duchess had enjoyed the duty in previous years and would undoubtedly do it again in future but did not want the public to think that she was taking on the responsibility annually.

Her decision fuelled criticism that both she and William as well as Prince Harry are not doing enough to warrant their taxpayer-funded lifestyle.

Last year Prince Philip, 94, undertook more royal engagements than William, Kate and Harry put together.

I cant wait for an article to come out shaming people for Kate wanting to spend time with kids

that's is not the point of course no one wants the cambs to be neglectful parents ,but Kate could have done this today 2-3 hours not so bad and as soon as its done take the chopper back .not so bad

Her problem is that we know she does not spend much time with the sprogs, that she has at least two nannies, and nanny Maria seems to be treated like a mother by sprog I, she virtually raises him.  So dream on cath medd, no way are you rushing back for the kids, that much is a dead cert.

Why Princess Kate Is Skipping the Annual St. Patrick's Day Parade in London
When they receive their traditional St. Patrick's Day sprig of shamrock tomorrow, the Irish Guards will be smiling – but not at Princess Kate.

Despite carrying out the duty four previous times, Kate will be skipping this year's ceremony, with her husband Prince William, who's the Colonel of the regiment, carrying it out instead.

"The Duchess has very much enjoyed the occasions when she has been able to attend, but the Duke is the Colonel of the Regiment and is looking forward to presenting the Irish Guards with their Shamrock," a Kensington Palace spokeswoman tells PEOPLE.

"The Duchess looks forward to marking St. Patrick's Day with the Irish Guards many times in the future."

For me, this is a lose/lose for Kate.  If she was ordered not to attend, then that is bad news for her love meter with the Firm.  If she chose not to attend, it's also bad news for the Firm and the People.  So, an interesting situation that looks bad all the way 'round.

Her only get out of jail free card is if they announce, gag, that she is pregnant again and suffering from whatever.  That's all she's got now.

It is sickening how some buy into Kate wanting to "Be with" the children. It is also insulting to great parents who work a whole lot more than the lazy duo work.

It is sickening how some buy into Kate wanting to "Be with" the children. It is also insulting to great parents who work a whole lot more than the lazy duo work.

For all their troubles and problems, Chucky and Diana did know their duty unless W$W who just want all the fun stuff. I think it's just Waity not wanting to do it because she's already been out and about a couple of times this month and she isn't getting another new overly expensive, ill fitting ugly green coat.


Title: Re: Kate dodges St. Patrick's day
Post by: CarryingOn on March 17, 2016, 04:06:27 am
I agree. I think Kate just doesn't want to do it. I've never been of the mind that William blocks Kate from doing engagements for the BRF. In fact, after the wedding haze wore off (the first year they were married - pathetic!) he seemed highly content to let her go off and do whatever as long as she wasn't bothering him. Lord knows every time he's near her his jaw is clenched so tight, it's a wonder it hasn't broken! The fact is that she's spent the last 5 years doing nothing more than doing something and that's completely by choice because it hit her very early in that being a royal wasn't just about flashy clothing, flashy cars, flashy vacations, and waving to the peasants as they stared adoringly at her, which we know is the only reason she enjoyed engagements at first. On top of that, she realized that the charities wanted more than her showing up once in a while but for her to actually be actively involved and horror of all horrors without cameras around! This is the same as the "dating" years. Yes she was William's beck and call girl but at the end of the day that was by her own choice; he didn't hold a gun to her head. Still, if she had wanted to do something meaningful with her time when she wasn't with him, she could have but as we all recall, all too well, she spent that time shopping.

So, it would appear that viper ma does live at AH - so we pay for her too.  A small bit from DM comment section.

Victoria., Surrey, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago
Horrible arrogant woman. Stalked William with the help of her pushy mother then when the ring was on the finger continued to sit on her backside. Lazy, contemptuous and petulant. Even has her mother living with her in Norfolk after her parents split up last year.

Worn Out, Skid Row, United Kingdom, 2 hours ago
The Middleton's have split up???? Not heard that one before.

Maz, Louth, United Kingdom, 1 hour ago
Worn Out - it was reported in the European press several months ago, but for some reason it is not being reported in the British press.

Victoria., Surrey, United Kingdom, 46 minutes ago
Correct...Reported in the French and German press last autumn. Press ban in the UK. The father apparently had had enough of Carole. Now she lives full time with Kate and William and her father has stayed in Bucklebury.

Which is stupid mainly since the idiot has no leverage; she's pulling this on her Sovereign Queen and she's lucky Charles isn't on the throne (it'll be entertaining to see Charles wipe the floor with her) and Kate has no idea who she's messing with. When HM lost patience with Diana after a decade of beind the scenes drama, Diana lost her HRH and lost HM's protection. Each act of defiance is only making HM's patience wear thin and Charles is likely homicidal at Kate breaking this tradition. Charles was in the armed forces as a trained parachuter and soldier while Andrew fought. Now Kate has disappointed dozens and put more work on her troubled husband's shoulders. She has no business pulling something like this, no excuse at all. I think HM has banned Carole from KP, but since William keeps his court there at Anmer, that is where Carole stays.


Title: Re: Kate dodges St. Patrick's day
Post by: sandy on March 19, 2016, 01:53:12 am
Charles and his mother should have done something years ago. William was allowed to be wrapped in cotton wool and treated as "precious" beginning after his gap year and when he started Uni. The problems started around then. Diana never really had the Queen's protection, she did nothing for Diana and cossetted her precious son Charles instead. At least Diana worked and did not shirk the way Kate does now. Unfortunately the Queen is being a bit too lenient despite the criticism in the media of her grandson and granddaughter in law. The two have gotten so precious I doubt Charles getting "tough" would do any good in any case. What should happen is the Queen and Charles give them a full plate of work and expect them both to show up for it otherwise no new tennis courts, no trips, no nothing. Threatening to take away perks might be the most effective thing now. And the Queen should tell William the days of playing normal at an airbase are over.

I think Kate mooched from day one off of his special precious treatment and only reinforced it after he graduated; look at how her husband is doing HER duty and she's basically putting it out that she's too precious to go out and meet the troops and spend time in the public eye. Look at how she made William face HM after the topless scandal and stayed at home with her family. She's finally being called out for her behavior and I think this is the tipping point. Just look at how she's being crucified in the comments section and how people are exasperated. Odd how this is the final straw with the public after years of shirking. I just wonder, how long until Kate realizes that William can no longer protect her since William himself has lost the goodwill of the public.

A duchess in danger of failing in her duty: To gain a few leisure hours at her grand home, Kate snubbed war heroes – and broke 115 years of tradition. Now a respected Royal writer raises a grave concern...

    The St Patrick's Day tradition was begun by Princess Alexandra in 1901
    Since then, ultimate honour is for senior female Royal to present shamrock
    But the Duchess of Cambridge said she would not be carrying out tradition
    Prince William had to step in to hand out shamrocks to 600 Irish Guards


Quote
The shamrock is a potent symbol. Its three heart-shaped leaves represent both Ireland and the Holy Trinity. God and country. It’s why, on St Patrick’s Day every year, it’s handed out to Irish Guards who fight and die in the British Armed Forces. Even in war it is shipped out to them to be tucked into their Kevlar helmets.

For those at home the ultimate honour is to have it presented by a senior female member of the Royal Family. A tradition begun by Princess Alexandra in 1901 became the graceful trademark of the Queen Mother who maintained it until she died. She even missed her favourite day’s racing at Cheltenham to be at the St Patrick’s Day parade.

It would have been an easy custom for the Duchess of Cambridge to embrace and make her own. Indeed, it was her first solo military engagement in March 2012 and for the next three years she made herself a favourite among the troops when she accompanied Prince William, who is Colonel of the Regiment.

Last Thursday to everyone’s surprise she left him to perform the duty alone.

I don't think that she just decided to pull out of the event. I think that she was pushed out by Wills. IMO, he got criticize for being lazy so he takes on this event to get the press off his back on on hers. The press isn't protecting her anymore. She's not being photoshopped to make her look younger and she's not praised for her so called work. IMO, she's on her way out if not officially. I'm sure she's not living at Amber Hall with Wills and the kids but at her mm's country place. She looks like she's hanging on by a thread, going along to keep up appearances.

I think the press is really starting to turn on them. I remember the DM posted that article about the skiing holiday they recently went on, and at first the article was all "Ah, look how cute! They really are the perfect family." Half an hour later, they had changed the content entirely to "Work shy couple takes their children on another holiday while tax payers foot the bill... Oh, and they didn't even have the decency to warn the press but just invited their own photographer instead."

This points to two things:

- Since DM is more of a "get as much people to read our articles as we possibly can" kind of paper, their articles tend to reflect public opinion. Hence, public opinion is against W&K
- This is the press taking revenge on W&K's "we're private people" attitude. William has two options now, either giving them what they want and upping the number of engagements and perhaps throwing in an intimate interview/photoshoot or two, OR childishly letting them know telling to F off by doing even less. Considering Kate's not doing the St Patrick's day gig, I think it's quite clear which strategy he chose...

Also I think that showing up at EACH for 45 minutes was much easier for her than attending S. Patrick Day ceremony ( which is much longer I guess), a 40 minute engagement is not much effort and it counts as engagement itself :thumbsdown:

I always wondered when Seward would turn on WK, now it has happened. When Seward turns, you know the BRF has given permission for the wolves to strike; it's only now downhill from here and I don't think the media will care anymore, I know I wouldn't if I were a member of the press.

I think the press is really starting to turn on them. I remember the DM posted that article about the skiing holiday they recently went on, and at first the article was all "Ah, look how cute!

I think the St. Patrick's Day gig has been the turning point; surprising really, but go figure, this is something even the press can't justify, snubbing the armed forces and breaking major tradition. I think upping the number of engagements would be pointless at this point. The press has put up with enough and frankly I think the press can't credibly justify them anymore.

Can't remember where I saw the comment but someone said that in the carriage post wedding waity when looking at the crowds said to willnot "wow" he responds " your subjects" says everything. As an aside, I know junor is pro charles but where is Seward? If memory serves she was always a charles person so, if, I remember correctly her writing this has been sanctioned by Charles


Title: Re: Kate dodges St. Patrick's day
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 20, 2016, 03:12:29 pm
You know, I hope when Charles is King, he ends up taking a tally and kicks the RF around into shape; Kate has no business dictating her schedule and has no business deciding whether or not she wants to go to things like this. Kate is becoming the single reason the monarchy is being touted as useless. I think Kate should be stripped of her Duchess rank and reduced in the ranks for this abomination. As for Seward, Seward has already written her view on the matter and I wager Charles is seething in red faced rage. Camilla must be a tense wreck working on keeping Charles sweet behind closed doors. As for William telling Kate "Your Subjects" he has forgotten that his 'subjects' can pull him off his throne. If it can be done to the Romanovs/Hapsburg/French royals, it can be done to anyone.

I agree Kuei. Furthermore I don' t think she was forbidden to show up: Kate is stubborn and if she was forbidden and she wanted to go she would have been there, no doubt. She can' t be bothered, that' s the real point to me

You can tell it's BS mainly since she's used that excuse since day one to explain her shirking of her duties. She blames HM and Charles and basically has blamed:

The press
The courtiers
William
Her kids (saying she has to be a hands on mom)
 
As for not being bothered, she's the type that only wants to do things once she gets what she wants (as if she hasn't had enough) and I think she's the epitome of the person I've mentioned before, that if you take away money and opportunity, they'll end up sinking since they're too naturally shiftless to make something happen for themselves. Kate will use any excuse, just like someone who gives being on benefits a bad name. She is freeloading (like she's always done) and this time I'm glad the public and press will start taking her to task for her mooching, just like they did with Fergie.

I'm glad that the public and press think she's gone too far; I was wrong on numerous occasions about what the breaking point would be, but this is it. You don't diss the armed forces and get away with it. I (along with everyone here) am glad the scales have fallen from the eyes of the public for good. She's really past the point of no return and I don't think she's going to be able to redeem herself. Fergie got bashed regularly and Fergie did more engagements.

I hoped the turning point would happen before, but finaly here we are finally. All the other royal families accross Europe can have a family and carry out their duty, so why not Will & Kate Middleton? I wonder if in 10/15 anny they' ll use the same excuse to dodge their engagements: their kids lol

Furthermore, Kate could have brought George and Charlotte in London, show up ( how long is the engagement? A couple of hours? it isn' t a normal 8 hour shift, the shift normal people with kids day in day out do) and then get back to her refurbished and rarely used home in Kensington to her kids.

Also I think that the reason given to eschew this engagement may be true: she deosn' t want taxpayer to expect her to be there every year, so if she doesn' t feel like taking part, she won' t. She can' t have any duty in her life bignono :thumbsdown: Do you understand taxpayers :P


Title: Re: Kate dodges St. Patrick's day
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 20, 2016, 10:09:23 pm
She doesn't understand taxpayers because she has determinedly cut herself off from the past when she wasn't posh and wasn't connected and wasn't famous. She's unaware of human nature since she prefers to isolate herself. As for the kids, it would be nice to bring them and show them off to an adoring public. As for creating expectations, I think she's acting like someone who is so in demand that she is in a position where she has a right to set limits.

What really gets on my nerve is that this bone idle old hag is supposed to work for 1-2 hours, that' s how long an engagement is (  well her engagement are about 35/40 minutes long actually), she' s not supposed to stay at work 8/9 hours as well as we all do and the take the train or bus and get back home after another whole hour.

Her engagements are really short, they don' t last a whole day like a  full time work day is. Furthermore she has the chauffeur driving her fast back home.

Usually the short duration of the appearance is the very reason it's expected of her to do a lot of them; simple and straightforward and uncomplicated.

Kate has had the slack cut for her since day one; she's failed to do appearances at state openings, failed to be prepared, and failed to take the workload off of the more junior royals. She's near the top and should be doing the amount of work accordingly. If someone at the top of a business slacked off they would lose their position and reputation. She has a staff of nannies and it's not like she's someone who is handicapped.

Anyone with a wide range of interests could really make something of themselves and yet Kate doesn't; the military is ingrained in royal/aristocratic tradition and yet Kate thumbs her nose at it and snubs a military that is likely to face genuine battle. She's more of a special snowflake than the aristocrats who get painted with that brush.

I can't get over how much she gets away with; Kate DEIGNS to do her duties and instead of taking appearances seriously she dresses wrong and skives off where she can. She has GALL not doing her duties and making the palace make excuses. She's never prepared even for the simplest moments.

I' ve found this  8)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kFkzT2NAs2o

This is on point and frankly I admire Jane Moore for speaking up; they aren't paid to be normal and as for young family, Kate is a mature adult. She's not someone who is in her early twenties and having one kid after forsaking her chances at a life of her own and a career.
