Is Kate going to start forbidding staff to have romantic lives of their own? I do think these staff members are working there so they can write memoirs on what went down and basically make a fortune off of that. Might actually more than make up for the BS they have to endure.

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Kate's top aide quits over Kensington Palace love triangle: Media adviser leaves just three months after dumping Duchess's 'Girl Friday' for Prince Harry's assistant
Quote
Office romances frequently prove awkward, and now a love triangle at Kensington Palace has ended with the departure of one of the Duchess of Cambridge’s most senior aides.
Palace officials announced yesterday that Nick Loughran, media adviser to Kate as well as to Princes William and Harry, is to leave his position to take up a new job in public relations.
The announcement came three months after I disclosed that Loughran had dumped Kate’s cherished ‘Girl Friday’, Rebecca Deacon, and begun courting Clara Madden, a blonde bombshell who works as Prince Harry’s assistant.
‘This will be better for all concerned,’ says my man at the Palace. ‘Nick’s relationship with Clara has become increasingly serious and it will give him a fresh start away from the royal hothouse.’
Yesterday Clara, 29, joined Harry on a visit to King’s College Hospital in South London, while Rebecca accompanied Kate to Wimbledon.

Antipodean Clara previously worked for William and Kate, who made a point of meeting her parents when they visited her native New Zealand in 2014.
Her brother, Nicholas, is a member of The Queen’s Six — a group of singers who perform for the Royal Family and live at Windsor Castle. Their mother, Robyn, revealed: ‘William said to me Clara is the star of the office.’
Loughran split up with Rebecca in 2015 after a two-year relationship. He has worked for Kate, William and Harry for five years after three more spent representing other royals.
Later this summer he will become an associate director at Freuds, the PR firm founded by Matthew Freud, whose late father Sir Clement was recently exposed as a sexual abuser of children.
‘Nick has been an excellent, hard-working, and thoughtful member of the team,’ says Jason Knauf, communications chief to William, Kate and Harry. ‘From jubilees, weddings, babies, polar explorations and tours to every corner of the planet, Nick has seen it all and contributed in every way possible.’
A pal of Loughran insists his departure is not connected to his love life: ‘Nick always planned to leave Kensington Palace to work in the private sector.’

I'm really surprised at the level of dysfunction in the way that the office operates. It sounds like a royal version of how Facebook operates and sounds like there is zero order or respect for hierarchy and refuse to behave accordingly. I wonder if they even dress professional.

The whole office is a total mess IMO  :thumbsdown:

Yet on the other hand I think that Nick is going to leave not because of the triangle ( which doesn' t make much sense IMO) but because he just wants to leave his position. I think working with Will and Kate must be quite hard and frustrating and that' s why Nick is finding another job.
How many employees have left so far? They' re quite a few

They also had to have staff who sucked up to them and kept quiet about all the others things discussed.  They also chose several foreign staff eg Maria who wouldn't be so aware of their history and the public dislike of them.  Another factor was staff who council carol could bully and bark orders at not knowing that her background was lower than theirs.  Poor old Caro is still waiting for someone to curtesy to her.

Now Kate's aide finds her own Prince Charming


With more than five years of marriage and two young children, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are the model of domestic contentment — but their household is a hotbed of passion.

I hear that Kate’s highly influential personal assistant Natasha Archer has become engaged to royal snapper Chris Jackson, who has been on private photoshoots with her and Prince William.

Confirming the engagement, Chris says: ‘I’m definitely punching above my weight.’ He has been courting pulchritudinous Tash since last year and adds of his proposal: ‘Apparently, it was a long time coming.’

Interesting.  Isn´t she one of the "three" who went to Bhutan with council cath  -  photographed looking a right mess and three tarts together?  Also interesting is that Chris Jackson is the speed dial photographer that bill medd uses to meet him at EAAA to take some pr shots and pays him 500 GBP (taxpayer money used of course).  CJ departs and bill medd pushes off, done his bit to show the world he has a "job"  -  easy number, roll up, scam the taxpayer out of 500 GB, few photos and off her goes.  Amazing isn´t it.  Even more amazing is the fact that he thinks the public en masse can´t see through it all.

I was watching Downton Abby, and I thought Kate dresses and looks like the hired help. Remember when she dressed her nanny in a maid's costume so she and her mom would appear as if they were highly born?   Lady Mary looks and dresses like Diana did.  Kate will never have that kind of class.  When she tries, she looks like a phony joke, and lacks confidence.  It is hilarious to watch the classless Middleton's make fools of themselves everyday.  Way to go Wee Willy Winky, you really know how to select a a wife, who will be in the public eye.  She looks desperate, but also smug.

I wonder if whether or not the office is run like a lot of hipster companies are. It would make a lot of sense since it does sound like WK are trying to be anti-establishment and 'young and hawt' and determined to be supposedly cutting edge and whatever else. Not too much formality, a lot of attitude and hubris, and WK reigning, loaded with delusions.

The royal tour entourage: From super nanny to stylist, the 12-strong team joining the Cambridges in Canada
When Prince William and Kate Middleton touch down with George and Charlotte on Saturday they will have help with everything from Kate's hair to running their Twitter accounts
From the super nanny to the trusted hairdresser to the indispensable PA and a stylist, William and Kate are taking their top team to Canada.

When the royal parents touch down with George and Charlotte on Saturday they will have the support of a 12-strong team of experts to make sure their tour runs as smoothly as possible.

A lot has changed since they first visited Canada in 2011 as newlyweds taking just seven staff with them.

I think it's run like Theranos, or how Steve Jobs ran things until he was sacked by the company's President.

The worst part is, is if someone tried to instill control and authority (outside of worshiping the dipwit duo) that person would be branded the villain and turn into a major target. WK certainly likely don't require anything other than that THEY get shown all deference and respect, otherwise, it's a free for all. I cannot imagine how frustrating it would be to someone with actual qualifications and someone who actually WANTS to be a positive team member will either not be hired at all or will be stuck following orders from these idiots while getting the blame if things go wrong.

Working for her is probably torture having to tell her how she is such a good mother as she spends the night in London Again after a hard day of shopping for two-sizes-to-small Billy's trousers. Instead of going back to shadow hall.  :Kate:

^ I'm sure that was true of the later part of Diana's life. Unfortunately, in the first two years of her married life over 40 Royal servants left the Wales' employment. One of those who were sacked later on, a maid, sued Diana for wrongful dismissal. She'd been employed by the royals for over nine years. So I think there is evidence there that Diana was a bit erratic as an employer. And I'm not so sure that nanny Barbara Barnes, whom the three year old William adored, was fired because Diana suspected her of reporting back to Charles.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on January 01, 2017, 02:19:01 am
I do think the high turnover rate is because of two reasons:

1. WK are abusive to staff and when the Midds are over, the staff gets even worse treatment and ten times the work
2. Staff have so much disgust for how the ducal couple conduct their lives and whine all the time, that staff just can't stay on and remain sane
3. The ducal couple is paranoid about leaks and so the staff are treated as enemies and with constant suspicion
4. William is verbally abusive to staff and constantly losing his temper
5. Due to modern expectations, staff has issues with how they are treated as employees and not friends; the ducal couple isn't pally enough for them

I do think that the fifth is one factor, mainly since there seems to be some kind of unrealistic expectation that an employee is supposed to be treated as a friend and confidant, not as an employee there to do a job. I'm not saying the royals are at fault though, people need ot be realists about their work role.

Rebecca Deacon to Wed Adam Priestly later this month.

According to  Sebastian Shakespeare, Rebecca's wedding will take place at the prestigious Chapel Royal:
>>The intimate ceremony at the chapel — where Prince George was christened in 2013 — will be followed by a champagne reception at St James's Palace, and dinner and dancing for 120 guests at the Westminster Boating Base. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to attend.<<

http://fromberkshiretobuckingham.blogspot.de/2017/03/rebecca-deacon-to-wed-adam-priestly.html

Telegraph announcements (4 months ago)

>>Mr A.A. Priestley and Miss R.A. Deacon

The engagement is announced between Adam, son of Commander Michael Priestley, RN, and Mrs Priestley, and Rebecca, daughter of the late Major Michael Deacon and the Rev Selina Deacon.<<

http://announcements.telegraph.co.uk/engagements/207579/mr-a.a.-priestley-and-miss-r.a.-deacon

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Kate pulls out all the stop for her loyal Girl Friday as she ties the knot to her own Prince Charming
There was heartache for the Duchess of Cambridge's Girl Friday, Rebecca Deacon, when her romance with fellow courtier Nick Loughran ended.

Happily, Kate's loyal private secretary has finally found her own Prince Charming. Two years after splitting from love-rat Loughran, Rebecca, 34, will tie the knot with Adam Priestley in London later this month — and Kate has made every effort to make her big day a success.

The Duchess has given the nod for the marriage to take place at the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace, which can only be used by those with a connection to the Royal Family.

The intimate ceremony at the chapel — where Prince George was christened in 2013 — will be followed by a champagne reception at St James's Palace, and dinner and dancing for 120 guests at the Westminster Boating Base. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are expected to attend.

Prince William invited Rebecca (above left, with Kate) to work for his private office in 2007, after she helped run the Concert for Diana.

She was promoted to Kate's private secretary three years later. My source tells me: 'Rebecca feels William and Kate have pulled out all the stops for them. Rebecca is down to earth, unpretentious and completely charming.'

The one sadness for Rebecca is that her father, Major Michael Deacon, cannot walk her down the aisle. He died when she was three, and his death inspired Rebecca's mother to become a vicar.

In 2007, the Reverend Selina Deacon officiated at the wedding of Rebecca's elder sister Hannah, the middle of her three daughters — but she declines to say whether she will marry her youngest daughter too. 'It's all very exciting,' she tells me.

Rebecca split from Loughran in 2015 after a two-year relationship. He started courting Prince Harry's blonde assistant, Clara Madden, before quitting the Palace for a career in PR. No doubt his wedding invitation has got lost in the post.

I am indifferent as to how her life turns out.  No doubt she is as big a liar and smoke screen spinner for that odious couple as the rest of their staff, and we, the taxpayer, are funding it.  How many normal working people can get married in the royal chapel followed with a champagne reception at St. James´s Palace?  At the end of the day they are staff, end of.  No better and no worse than the rest of the people who work in the UK. Talk about scratch my back and I will scratch yours.  Personally I think if they want to open these things to the public they should be made available to every member of the public, not just people who lie and create smokescreens to hide the odious couple and their deceptive goings on.  Jeez, the rf is getting worse by the week, they are not worth a penny of my money, and if there was a box I could tick not to pay them even one penny I would be first in line.

I love how they said that Kate gave permission for her to marry in the Chapel Royal. Kate can't do that - only the Queen can. Kate may have asked the Queen for that permission on behalf of Rebecca but Kate can't have given the approval herself.

A lot of staff of the royals do marry in one or other of the royal chapels as it is a perk of their positions but the Queen is the one who gives consent.

If I were Charles who's the one footing the bill to pay their staff, I'd appoint a no nonsense person to deal with Waity, fire her so called stylist and the other unprofessional yes people in the Cambridge's employ and let them know that play time's over.
Rebecca doesn't come off as a sincere warm person imo. Maybe it's the years wasted serving those useless two and the lies she had to keep and tell. I hope now she had the good sense to leave that mess she can gain her self respect back and go on to have a nice life.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 07, 2017, 10:10:10 pm
I think Charles could in fact be reorganizing her staff and it's likely a purge is about to start. Remove all the adults who can't let go of childhood and appoint staff members who will threaten to report back to Charles if the ducal couple tires to pull rank with them or flouts an appearance. As HM nears meeting her Maker, Charles is likelier to start getting the RF in line and using his iron fist approach. No more running the office and household like some silicon valley startup (run by those with a Steve Jobs complex) and using Charles' money to publicly make moves against Charles and HM.

^ but isn't that role occupied by the other woman? I do not remember her name.
It will be interesting to see if Kate chooses someone or they impose someone on her.

I think Charles might have quietly asked her to leave and Rebecca is getting a wedding service in a royal chapel as a gift of thanks for agreeing; now Rebecca has the royal service on her resume, references, and bragging rights about being married in the royal chapel.

^^Interesting.  I've heard/known of this woman.  What's hitting me first is why a former producer of, granted, a non-profit org (BBC1), would have any real concept of advancement/development in fundraising initiatives.  Television producers and development officers are two entirely different species.  She would seem to be more tailor made for PR/Marketing/executive work so really more in line with Juggers' position. Hm.

Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: gingerboy24 on March 08, 2017, 04:10:35 pm
^^  Good point.  Maybe a move is in place to wave bye bye to juggers, or juggers has been hinting that he wants to move back to a major corportion or politics.  He was quite involved with politics in Australia for several years.  I would think he must be tearing his hair out by now with what goes on and how bossyy/arrogant the lazy duo are.

Also, it may be that she is keen to get away from anything to do with the BBC.  They are not well thought of these days, as it would appear over the years they have turned a blind eye to the many, high up in their corporation who have, shall we say to be delicate, a certain penchant for young children.  Allegedly a den of vice for such things, and each time they have been about to be exposed big time, coincidentally the person about to blow the whistle suddenly gets cancer, or heart trouble, or whatever, and passes to the next world.  I think if I worked in a coporation like that I would want out pronto.  I am most definitely not saying this woman was, or is, involved in all that, but you do get tainted by association with these things, not something anyone would want.  The BBC started its downward spiral with the outing of Jimmy Sovile, or at least publically that is how it appears.

Good for her if she takes it on and works her way across to KP pr  -  she might regret it with that petulant twosome, but at least it is better than the BBC (one would hope).

Be interesting to sit back and see what develops.  As much as I think juggers is a naive idiot and has got it wrong from day one, a small part of me does feel sorry for him, doubt the position has done what he thought it would for him.   I wouldn´t trust him with my pr after this debacle, but maybe politics will be his saviour.   Or maybe he was promised a good job within the rf or British government in reward from putting up with the petulant twosome, you never know.

>> SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Kate's right hand woman is Queen for a day as she ties the knot with the royal photographer

The Duchess of Cambridge’s personal assistant is used to hiding in the shadows behind her high-profile boss, but Natasha Archer took centre stage at her wedding to royal photographer Chris Jackson.

The pair celebrated their nuptials over the bank holiday weekend in Chateau Rigaud, a medieval French mansion near Bordeaux.

http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2017/05/01/22/3FCDD8F000000578-0-image-a-14_1493675097307.jpg

Confirming the engagement last year, Chris said: ‘I’m definitely punching above my weight.’

He has been courting Tash since 2015 and adds of his proposal: ‘Apparently, it was a long time coming.’

Describing Tash as just Kate’s PA, however, seriously underestimates her importance in the Royal Household.

Not only does she deal with the Duchess’s diary, she also acts as her unofficial dresser and stylist, making her one of the most influential women in fashion.

As well as curating the Duchess’s wardrobe, it was reported that Archer was ordered to spruce up Prince William’s ‘estate agent’ style.

The Cambridges were not in attendance at the wedding, perhaps keen to give Natasha her moment in the spotlight. <<

Well, she did a better job of her wedding dress than she ever does with anything council cath wears.  She dresses her like a downmarket tart, yet she can find herself a lovely wedding gown.  Just who advises who here  -  methinks the mishaps in the wardrobe department are all council cath, by the look of the wedding frock.   Just like petulant bill medd, overrides what they think and does her own thing, with disastrous results.  She has probably learned to just say yes to whatever council cath wants to buy/wear, and it shows.

Natasha Archer, the Duchess of Cambridge’s personal assistant, wore an evening dress at her wedding reception which bore a striking resemblance to the one Kate wore to her own evening do in 2011.

She also accessorised it with a similar sparkly belt.

Tash, who wed royal photographer Chris Jackson near Bordeaux at the weekend, acts as Kate’s unofficial dresser and stylist, making her one of the most influential women in fashion.

As well as curating the Duchess’s wardrobe, it was reported that Archer was ordered to spruce up Prince William’s ‘estate agent’ style.

She is among those hotly tipped to become Kate’s new private secretary now that Rebecca Deacon is stepping down after ten years.

>> I'M ORF! Prince William and Kate’s housekeeper quits £35K-a-year job after work becomes ‘too demanding’

Sadie was responsible for cleaning, laundry, shopping and some cooking at Anmer Hall

PRINCE William and Kate’s top housekeeper has quit as the job is too demanding.

Sadie Rice, 35, packed in her £35,000 job when asked to move with them from Norfolk’s Anmer Hall to Kensington Palace.

A source at the Queen’s nearby Sandringham Estate said: “Sadie’s a hard worker but the job’s demands got too much, even for her.

“They wanted her to spend more time at Kensington Palace and her work was increasing all the time.

“She wasn’t having a normal life outside work. Sadie’s serving her notice and it seems nothing will change her mind. It’s their loss.”

The maid’s departure after less than two years is a blow to the royal couple as kids George, three, and Charlotte, two, liked her.

She was responsible for cleaning, laundry, shopping and some cooking at ten-bedroom Anmer Hall, where William, 34, and Kate, 35, spend two-thirds of their time.

They will relocate to London’s Kensington Palace to become full-time royals when he quits his air ambulance job this autumn.

In 2015 Kate lured Sadie away from Norway’s Prince Haakon and wife Mette-Marit in Oslo, where she spent five years.

Before that she was a Buckingham Palace maid and was well liked by the Queen.

William and Kate have been hiring more staff as they prepare to move to London and step up duties.

The Sandringham insider added: “They will regret losing Sadie as the right people aren’t easy to find.” <<

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3666001/prince-william-kate-middleton-housekeeper-quits/

A few comments from the other forum:

"Geez, they should of had another person helping Sadie. One for Cleaning and one for shopping/cooking. Or raise her money I mean geez. They lose staff left and right they no other royal has that problem."

"There is a reason that in old great houses, there were loads of staff- a housekeeper, a laundry maid, a cook, a scullery maid.

Sadie is doing at least 2 jobs ( if you factor in how much easier laundry is now)"
--
I agree, she was doing too much and too little pay. But somehow I think she also quit because she didn't want them as bosses anymore, mostly because she worked beforhand at Buck Palace, then for 5 years in Oslo for Mette-Marit, and then in Norfolk for the Cambs. So much moving around and now she's unwilling to move from Norfolk to London? And a "Sandringham insider" says the Cambs will regret her leaving, which to me confirms the years long suspicion that the Cambs are horrid people to work for. Their staff really leaves them left, right and centre, those in the office and those in the household. No one seems to last more than 2 years, except apparently nanny M, but if also true that the Cambs don't see the kids much, then likely nanny M has her peace most of the day & doesn't see the Cambs too much.
And what happened to Italian housekeeper Antonella Fresolone?

Kate just mopes around, shops online, sits there munching crisps, smoking cigarettes, and quaffing cheap wine (or the good stuff from the cellars at Buck House). Throw in speed dialing a lawyer and I am sure that burns her out all the time.

As for working environment, I am sure that Kate asks her to do even more with her time like run a bath, listen to Kate moan about how unfair life is, and I am sure that Sadie can't cope. Dealing with Carole and James is also surely taxing, I know I couldn't cope with that.

From the comment by the "Sandringham insider" I'd say it's put out that 1) Sadie will always find employment, within the royal household, but obviously at other places through the perceived prestige of her having worked for two royal families 2) that it is not at all Sadie's fault that she's leaving employment 3) the articles in general are a warning to the Cambs & more so to potential employees that they are a nightmare and better not work for them.

On the other forum someone said that the last time employees left employment left right & centre was in the 80s/ 90s, Di's & Charles's staff.

I think this comment hits the mark, plus as we all know Scarole playing queen of the manor(s).

Plus looking after Queen Carole (and possibly her prince consort) at both locations where they apparently have apartments.

I don't believe there is only the one domestic inside. 

Scarole's prince consort: are you just joking, or is there speculation that she has someone? Mike supposedly jumped ship a while ago, so maybe Scarole is "entertaining" someone else?

Both locations ahve apartments (for the Midds)? I remember that there was a one bedroom (I think, bigger? smaller?) built into KP (asbestos my ar*e) for the Midds. In Anmer too then? Talk about taxpayers being taken for mugs. Asbestos in KP was likely to be fair, but also only because W&K are rumoured to have torn down walls, demolishing the building in the process. What a horrid pair. Should be exiled far far away, to Mars preferably. Why don't they apply for that "colonisation" scheme?

Staff don't like them either and keep leaving.  It doesn't help having common old Ma barking orders at them with a cigarette stuck to her lower lip and looking slightly tipsy with her Chablis in hand.

Don't you mean paper bag in hand.  I bet Nanny Maria's book would be quite the page turner.

You know, I am certain that the press can't contain the news anymore; the abuse just keeps coming out and I am certain that no one is intimidated by the couple anymore. The BS cringing and cowering over Diana is now expired and I am sure the press has been wanting to dish it back for a long time. I'm just shocked at how scathing the comments are. I don't know how much more the Brits are going to put up with. At some point it has to end. More and more stories are leaking out and at some point it will become a deluge of stories of abuse, overwork, and mistreatment. I am sure it can't be stopped.

Quote
hey're ' seeking to expand their household staff' are they? So not only do they not have jobs, they don't do their own domestic errands either. If it was my tax money paying for this, I'd be furious!

I think Kate mistreats the help mainly because she wants to try to differentiate herself as much as she possibly can from the fact that there really isn't any real difference between her and the help. Just a generation ago her mother was waiting on upper class people in the first class cabins as a stewardess and it's possible that she inherited her mother's self loathing. She basically sees herself in the help and mistreats the staff as a part of lashing out at her own past self. Fundamentally she's full of self loathing and since she's done destroying herself she's moving on to the staff.

^No, because they think they are so special and important that you should be grateful grateful and appreciative just to be their lackey and at their beck and call.  Years ago the salaries were very poor indeed, might still be not so good, but in their small minds they thought the kudos of working for the rf was payment enough. Sadly, they failed to get the memo  -  very few feel like that these days, and are not interest in doffing their cap or curtsying to the rf, those days are over.  Your staff deserve respect. They appear to have had a good housekeeper there, and they have lost her because of themselves. Can just imagine bill medd and council cath, plus council caro, ordering them around  -  probably even ask the staff to light their cigarettes for them, and put toothpaste on the toothbrush.  Unpleasant to the core, they do not deserve decent staff.  Not sure how Nanny Maria stands it, the mere fact that they make her look like a servant in a nanny uniform at the christening and at the Fat Man´s wedding says it all, had to dress up in a dull as dishwater "uniform" to let the world know she is not a guest but "the nanny" and has to know her place.  They will never keep decent staff, and I see no reason why anyone would want to work for them in the first place.

I do think they need to up the salaries; just because something is always done does not mean that it should continue. They need to do a lot of restructuring and basically they have no business keeping so many palaces if they cannot (or will not) pay an appropriate salary.

Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on June 18, 2017, 02:01:42 am
^Exactly.

If I had my way, Buckingham Palace would be for offices and residency for the main royals and for the lesser royals, KP. As for the country, Sandringham and Balmoral will suffice. If you aren't a royal or are an ex-royal, you are forbidden from living with other royals on any estates. Put bluntly, I would have thrown Fergie off of royal grounds. No ex-wives getting residency and protection on the taxpayer's backs. No pre-marital cohabitation either.

They don't need manors and dozens of houses or duchies. What the government provides is more than ample and each year accounts should be analyzed for making sure that wages and salaries are sufficient and that wages are not being docked for rent (living on site) or food. That should be provided given the hours and BS that staff have to deal with. In no way should anyone have to basically lose more money over living on site.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: meememe on June 18, 2017, 02:45:07 am
The income from the Duchies and the Sovereign Grant is scrutinised annually. The Duchies provide their private income while the Sovereign Grant is for their official duties and palace maintenance e.g. the expenses for yesterday's Trooping the Colour and the Queen and William's visit to Grenfell Tower survivors comes from the Sovereign Grant while George's school fees are paid for from the Duchy of Cornwall. They can't use the Sovereign Grant for private expenses and that is very carefully checked.

If they aren't allowed to 'dock salaries' for living expenses then they will cut the salary and also not provide the accommodation which will lead to them being worse off. Those who work for the royals do have a good deal - as all their utilities etc are paid for by the royals and not by them e.g. the cost of the electricity/gas to heat their rooms is just part of the general electricity/gas of the entire palace. Having friends whose kids and grandkids work for the royals now they will tell you that paying something for their room and board is fine as they have great accommodation in central London, no transport costs to get to work and are able to save large sums quite quickly. There are some who don't have room and board as part of their pay packets and they are worse off as they have to travel to work - costs money and time - and pay their own rents etc while their colleagues who opt to live on site don't have those expenses. They do have a choice in many jobs.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on June 18, 2017, 04:11:56 am
How on earth can they have savings since they are paid next to nothing? Chrissake HM cuts corners even on the smallest perks of the job.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: meememe on June 18, 2017, 04:26:05 am
Quite simple - they don't spend it on things like rent, food, utilities or other expenses that take a lot out of a normal wage. To live in central London costs are huge but having most of those expenses paid for as part of the salary package means that they don't have those expenses at all. Those that choose to live-in are able to save quite a lot. They don't go out clubbing every night, they make sure that most if not all their meals are taken in BP and they end up after 3 - 4 years with enough for a sizeable deposit on a home (which they then pay off by renting out and still staying at BP). Then when they leave BP they will walk into very high paying positions and still have their investment properties.

The Queen pays the 'going rate' for the types of jobs these people do by the way. One of my friends applied for a job with another wealthy family near to BP and would have had the same income but have to live out and so would have had less to live on than they have at BP.

Kate And William Hire 'Super-Nanny'

What do you do with a toddler whose parents describe him as a ‘handful’ and a ‘little bit of a rascal’? Why, if you’re a royal, you hire a £250,000 super-nanny, of course! And no, that is not a typo.

According to sources, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have drafted in a top-flight (and top earning) nanny (who previously worked for the Swedish royal family) to help with Prince George, three, and Princess Charlotte, who is two. It comes only three months before George is due to start at private Thomas’s School in Battersea, South London.

^ Yes it does. Thank you Stephanie, was wondering what happened, was it me!

Is this new nanny Swedish or was she an English import. I remember reading, if this person was Estelle and Oscar's nanny, that Victoria and Daniel insisted their nanny be an English speaker, even if she wasn't British. I do think it's a good idea to grow up with a familiarity with other languages and if this woman can speak several, all the better. William's tortured attempts at speaking French in Canada reinforced that for me.

Maybe Maria, who is totally devoted to the children she cares for is finding it a bit much, chasing after a two year old and four year old, very energetic. She might be able to relax a bit when George goes to school. And of course the Cambridges are taking on so much more work, don't you know!

IMO The Inquisitor article does not show Nanny Maria in a good light, and is very instulting towards her.  A big slap in the face, if I were Nanny Maria I would be giving in my notice.  Who knows, maybe that is what they want her to do.  This bit below annoys me, as if NM had not been feeding the sprogs propertly, or engaging them in activities, etc etc.  In her place I would leave immediately, after telling the vile council cath what I thought of her and her family.

She would also ensure that both Prince George and Princess Charlotte were eating healthy, balanced meals and their interests and hobbies were not limited, the source said.

“She’s also proficient in art therapy, equestrian skills and even pediatric dietetics, so she’ll ensure the children are well-balanced and have a varied list of hobbies and interests.”
Moreover, the new nanny would accompany Kate Middleton and Prince William on all their family trips, and she would be responsible for taking care of Prince George and Princess Charlotte whenever the royal couple would be away traveling without them, the source said.


So where does that leave Nanny Maria?  This is one huge kick in the teeth to her and her capabalities as a nanny. As for employing this robotic wonder nanny, remember folks, it is us, the taxpayer employer her and paying her salary. Did we want her?  No.  Did we get a say in it?  No.  Same old thing, scam the tax payer.  I personally want to pay for nothing for that family, not even a box of tissues, and there are many others who feel like me.

I honestly do not think the behaviour is down to Nanny Maria.  Kids pick up on atmospheres, and the one in that "arrangement" can´t be good.  Look at the way council cath treated sprog I at the orangina wedding, the look on her face was plain to see, and she looked as though she positively disliked him.  Be interesting to see how long wonder nanny stays around, not exactly the perfect job is it.

This situation disgusts me from start to finish with the way they have portrayed Nanny Maria, it is an outrage to be so scathing about her and infer that she is not up to the job of looking after the two bratlets.  God help any nanny as they get older, they are little so and so´s now who think they are God, nobody will like them, few do now.

Council cath should be ashamed of herself.   Plus all the hands on parenting bit, which lasted about 5 mins.  Also, if the silly shemale but realised it,  as she likes to pretend she is a hands on parents, as does baldy coot, then it shows they have been a miserable failure if they have had to employ a behaviourist for tantrums and kick Nanny Maria in the teeth and make out it is her fault.  Council cath probably only sees the sprogs for pr purposes.  You can tell by how they are always looking around for Nanny Maria, she is like a mother to them, not council caro.  Doubt council caro helps much either, if they take after her God help them, they will need oodles of help if they turn out like her.

I hope that the successful candidate is someone who tells them like it is and not get so rattled by their titles that he/she kisses their behind. IMO, this is way overdue and Jason shouldn't be aloowed to take direction from these 3. Look at the mess that they're in now because they want to steer their own ship. Harry should've been on cloud 9 not still attached to a fame seeking ho. Wills should've been out and about with an image of a future king who's intouch with the public not married to a useless plastic woman who's still adding nothing of value after all these years and let's not mention the kids who are hdden away in the UK but trotted out for pr purposes when they need a buffer from each other and deflection of their dead cold marriage.

Post by: windsor2 on July 26, 2017, 04:11:28 pm
IMO, they're 7 years too late to try and right this sinking ship. What's the point now of hiring another communications officer when they've shown that they want to do things their own way. Wills defied common sense and married a useless user Waity who's so inept and wrong for her current position that it's painfully bad to keep watching her f up and those around her making excuses for her lack of caring, working, dressing apparently for the occasion, etc. Wills just shows up as if he's doing the organization a favor and then admits to not being bothered reading the briefs regarding why he's at the engagement in the first place and Harry's continued to be used as s 3rd wheel and a pr distraction for the Cams. 7 years ago, things could've been easier to right but not now. A new communications officer can't perform miracles. The Harry/Meghan mess has done a few things such as distract from the cold Cams and the kids as well as her a strong presence now on the internet. Bloggers like NY, Jersey D., Felix and Skippy have risen in popularity because they're praising the Cams as being professional whilst slamming Meghan being cheap and common and at the same time being happy that Harry's seen in public having fun with other women blast him for being a womanizing drunk (NY has done this). This kind of ploy isn't going to save the Cams and the monarchy, so Harry being used and bashed is a waste of time. Wills has to man up and take responsibility for his current situation and boot Waity and the kids out.
They need a crisis manager who doesn't pussyfoot around and will take them and the foundation to great heights. They should start by removing Waity's name and only concentrate on Wills/Harry.

What is needed most, is for WKH to grow up and stop acting on impulse; that is the first step. They have got to stop trying to freestyle their way though life and need to fall in line. None of them have any business just doing what they want, when they want and having staff clean up after them or lecture them like parents. Each lecture is clearly disregarded after pretending to listen and it's clear that staff can't help if they don't do their part.

^very true!
^^the foundation relies on them having a good image. Right now, it's suffering because of the 3 aren't doing a good job in regards to what the foundation's really about. The Prince's Trust has a clear message; to assist in aiding the disadvantage youth via jobs for one thing. I'm hard pressed to figure out what the Cambs/Harry foundation's trying to achieve.  :dontknow:  One thing that's not needed is another lying communications officer trying to prop up lazy directionless Wills, his blow-up sex -on-the-brain crotch-pressing, plastic ineffective robot of a wife Waity and Harry, who's shown over and again that he's very caring and a go-getter but gets used by the royal's and the Cambs for pr distraction and he still throws his good will away by still being involved with fame seeking users. What's needed without a doubt is a complete dismantling of the foundation, Waity gone and the Prince's finally getting their act together. Later is better than never although now it's going to be a very difficult job to do.

Turmoil at Palace as Queen's right hand man quits and William and Harry's top aides consider standing down in dramatic shake up of Royal staff
Quote
t comes as the Queen and her heir the Prince of Wales attempt to impose greater unity on the rival ‘firms’ or households of the younger Royals
It comes as the Queen and her heir the Prince of Wales attempt to impose greater unity on the rival ‘firms’ or households of the younger Royals. This is a watershed moment for the monarchy, as the Queen and Prince Philip step back from official duties and hand responsibility to the younger generation.
‘Sir Christopher’s departure is just the beginning. Major changes are afoot. Yes, it is a shake-up,’ said a senior source. One of those who is understood to be considering his position is Prince William’s Private Secretary, Miguel Head.
Another said to be weighing up his options is Prince Harry’s Private Secretary Edward Lane Fox, a former captain in the Household Cavalry.
The impending departures are seen as part of a shake-up as the Queen and Charles move to take control of disharmony among the different Royal Households.
It follows Sir Christopher’s forceful plea to all the households in May this year to come together ‘on message’.
Jason Knauf, communications secretary to William, Kate and Harry, said Mr Head had no plans to leave. He made no comment on Mr Lane Fox’s planned departure.

I think it's time that WHK lose their independent household, staff, and offices and just abide by Charles' staff and offices. None of them are doing so much that they even require a full staff and all WKH do is make one mess after another. All three should be under Charles' control/direction and working for the Prince's Trust. Despite the success of Invictus, clearly it should work along the lines of doing things on behalf of the Prince's Trust or heir and basically doing assigned appearances at Charles' request. Fundamentally, WHK have nothing to stand on and if they did daily office work for the Prince's Trust I am certain that it would provide some normalcy and then they could do other appearances on behalf of the Trust and fill in time quite nicely. Neither William or Kate set anything up in their twenties and Harry needs to do more. I dislike this very independent approach whereas WKH have all these resources but clearly do not know how to make good use of them.



Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: windsor2 on July 30, 2017, 04:38:00 am
Yes, but in this case, I blame Wills for this mess because he's the senior royal amongst them so Harry and Waity take directives from him. Harry needs to get away from those two anyway. He's always used as either a pr tool to get the crowds to go and see them by having him tag alsong on those dumb threesome events or his used as a distration so the press doesn't delve into the dead marriage of Wills and Waity. At least now Charles and the courtiers have solid proof what a lousy operation and a waste of time and money that Wills set up.
Both Harry and Wills should've worked for The Prince's Trust to see how a charity operation works. Their foundation makes no sense. It doesn't have a cohesive message. It's a shame that things weren't firmer prior to Wills marrying Waity because she would've gotten in and Wills would've been on track to being a young "statemen" on the world stage and not a joke he's now with his useless wife endow.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 30, 2017, 05:53:35 am
Exactly! I'm shocked that William was not ordered to work for the Prince's Trust starting at sixteen (average age for the young to start work) and I do find it disconcerting that normalcy was twisted into not working at all despite the fact that it's normal for teens to work. If William had done appearances and office work during the summers instead of jet setting, I am certain that he would have been having plenty of normalcy and he would be on a much better track and be a better person. He wouldn't at all be the mess he is now and I am certain that he would in fact be a happier person. I am sure that he would in fact have much better stature and something interesting to talk about at banquets and would have met actually decent people, not just clubbing and beaches.

I do blame William for not seeing what was right in front of his selfish face and basically putting so much on hold and wasting valuable time. He has to stop pretending to be a normal bloke and step into his role as prince. I truly think that if he had been immersed in the Trust, he would in fact be a lot more assertive in his role as a royal prince and senior royal and he would in fact be healthier and happier. I don't think he LIKES being treated as one of many at all. I believe he is sick of Kate controlling large aspects of his life and his real nature is frankly, elitist and snotty. Not nice and down home fries like he puts on airs for. I will never believe that he likes light fluff stuff and I do believe that he's fed up with his jet set life and wants something more conventional. Pity he made the choices that he did.

I too believe this "secretary" was picked for her.  With all the talk of consolidating the "courts" and one message that comes down from Charles & HM.  This is in keeping because this woman is way to skilled to be dictated too by this gold digger.  Her mother controlled her message for years than she had some freedom with the sorority/fraternity house the Cam's played in and now the boom is being lowered.

Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: windsor2 on July 31, 2017, 10:31:20 pm
Catherine Quinn's way overqualified to work for Waity which leads me to believe that she's going to be the head person in charge of Waity, Wills and Harry's calendar,appointment, etc. She's going to report to Charles and/or the queen's courtiers as I believe that her appointment is to get things to run like a professional office and for Wills, Waity and Harry, to act like they're leaders. Notice how the article stresses that she's a strong reader. Why do that if she was only going to be Waity's lackey. It's a shame she's not the Duchess of Cambridge instead of Waity.
Like I've said prior, this shake-up should've been done way before Wills wasted good years galvanting atound with Waity and then being allowed to marry her and set up his own court that was serviced by "yes" men and women. It's going to be twice as hard now to undo the damage and get them to get respect of the movers and shakers of the world and the public because Wills seen as arrogant and lazy, Waity a skinny, lazy useless, uncaring airhead and Harry a compassionate, caring chap who seems to fall into unnecessary scraps and attracts/hangs out with cheap, common, rough users who drag him through the press as they use him to boost their image/name recognition for fame. Harry shouldn't be lumped together with the Cambs anyway as he needs to get himself firmly together and get on with his charities and understand that his mess ups effects his image and his ability to bring his charities positive worldwide press.
^oh yes, best believe that papa Charles is in charge and not taking any prisoners. The Cambs and the Midds bs messes up his standing as the next heir, so it's best now to put things in order so people can respect the monarchy again and see that they're of value. It's going to be a very tough job, but it's worth a try.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 31, 2017, 10:32:24 pm
I don't think Waity ever did have control over her life. Ma had the control until Waity married Willy then the Firm took over. She has nobody to blame but herself.

I think at first she did have control; she could decide who would work for her and in what capacity and she did get control over her schedule (something the palace reminded the public of in the early days against accusations that Kate was being prevented from working against her will) and so it was all up to her. Instead of running with this, Kate instead mooched around and goofed off and basically ran the office like an obnoxious startup geek who can't handle any kind of real power and control.

After all this time, it's clear that HM and Charles have lost patience and she's lost control. Now she has to do a regular rota of duties and she's not getting anything new until she proves time and time again that she's going to do her part. Instead of the obedient Rebecca, a new secretary has been brought into the ranks; not aristocratic, but someone who will not put up with any BS from Kate and will be there to enforce HM and Charles' wishes and see that order is maintained.

I believe that Kate and William have both done so much damage, that instead of being in more control at this age, they have been stripped of all control and are now at the mercy of their advisers in a way that was supposed to be anathema. Just think, WKH were going to break the control of the courtiers and instead they are not more entrenched than ever (which is not a bad thing really).


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: windsor2 on July 31, 2017, 10:45:22 pm
Oh, well, Wills had his chance at putting his own stamp on things and he made a mess that effects Charles and the queen directly. Something had to be done. It's just a shame that it wasn't done sooner. I'm sure that no one wants to be bothered with hosting Wills and Waity as they're useless and lazy. I'm still smarting about Waity embarrassing herself and the royal family and the U.K. when she told the German chancellor that she doesn't speak German. She knew she was going on the trip so why didn't she prepare to say a few simple phrases in the language. Wills is to blame for dragging this disaster into the family knowing full well that she'd have to do public duties. He should shut up and listen to the experts and try and salvage something of his sagging image.
The first order of business should be the Midds getting the boot. No more living at royal residences and using the royal association to make money. It appears that things are already in motion regarding that as Pippa was left to fend for herself during Wimbledon where she sat in the cheap seats also known as the seats not in the royal box.  :cookie: 


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 01, 2017, 01:57:37 am
I do think that given the blow that the Windsors have suffered in their prestige and lack of allies, Kate is now feeling the consequences behind closed doors. Not just fashion, but other little things. She tried to design the livery of her servants, but that got pushed down; now the appointment of a new private secretary does say that she no longer will be allowed to do anything on her own terms. This new private secretary is likely cutthroat and ruthless enough to be able to put Kate in her place and I do believe that this purge of staff has been both voluntary, but also ordered by Charles. Without Philip HM is going to have it harder and I am certain that Charles has been seething; HM might condescend him, but with that family blood is everything and Charles is surely maddened that HM is being treated this way. Kate has gotten away with giving HM's wishes the middle finger and frankly I can't get over how Kate messed up HM's Diamond Jubilee year. Kate has flouted HM and gotten away with it and now that Philip clearly can't take anymore, HM is on her own and now Kate has lost all her autonomy.

I find it disconcerting that Kate is losing her independence at an age where most are coming fully into their own as set adults; Diana had more autonomy and now Kate is going to be ordered about by the very courtiers she viciously attacked for so many years. I do not think that she's going to get any of it back and now that she's being moved from Anmer to KP to do work, she won't be able to travel to see her family.

Amazing how Kate was lauded as the refreshing alternative to the 'vapid' society women, but go figure, now the public views Kate as utterly worthless and I do believe that it's a jarring irony. If she quits her marriage, her mother will not let her come back; Carole is still relying on her titled daughter to bring a bride for James and replenish the family coffers all the more.

When I saw how old C Quinn is and how accomplished in her career, I could not believe that she'd work for the Cambs. But now having read all you wrote about how Charles is likely behind it and she might report back to Charles instead of the Cambs, it makes a lot more sense. There's still prestige having worked for this family and she might get a gong, and esp if she's working actually for a more serious employer (Charles) rather than two ditzy dolts, I can see why she took the job.
It will be interesting to see whether there'll be any change after October  :cookie:

To Sheridan's "Waity ageing 20 years over night soon": lol if she ages even one year over night she'll look like Scarole's long lost twin age-wise  :laugh:

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am thoroughly enjoying this, and it's only just begun! 
It'll wipe that smug right off Waity's face.Never thought I'd say this:  Thanks, Charles!

I'm glad; she never should have had all that leeway in the first place and I am certain that she should have been drilled in the royal way a long time earlier instead of being allowed to have all that power right away. She wasn't raised to handle any kind of authority.

Check THIS comment:

Kate basically lived the life of a mistress as it existed in the 19th century and isolated herself from all but family because she is never seen with friends. Even with kids we don’t see her have play dates or anything of the sort and the paps don’t catch her with the kids but instead shopping on her own.

Catherine Quinn has a huge task ahead of her but I just wonder if a 35 year old woman who has access to riches and no need to change will really make the effort.
As for the flower holding, I think the current assistant will be doing that.

Yes, most definitely appointed by Charles and Waity will feel the full sting of his wrath that she'll either act like an adult and work or quit the marriage and go crying to mummy. The comments on the DM are questioning why such an accomplished woman would want to work for such a vapid person like Waity, coming to the conclusion that she needs all the expert help she can get.

Amazing how Kate was lauded as the refreshing alternative to the 'vapid' society women, but go figure, now the public views Kate as utterly worthless and I do believe that it's a jarring irony. If she quits her marriage, her mother will not let her come back; Carole is still relying on her titled daughter to bring a bride for James and replenish the family coffers all the more.

I completely forgot about this. Kate was sold to "make a difference", "be of substance", finally "a commoner to make the royals more in touch" and a woman so much "more than just a clothes-horse", and here we are, she has proven in 6 years that she is nothing of what she was supposed to be and everything she wasn't sold as. Never "hit the ground running" so keen to dig in and work. What a joke.

Quinn might not hold flowers, but I suspect that her job won't be desk only, but that she'll be present at engagements just like Rebecca was/ still is, because if Quinn is indeed there for Charles to tighten the grip on the Donothings, then she'll have to be present at engagements to keep a close eye and tell esp Kate "no" and direct her. At least in the beginning, if Kate & Will improve, she mightn't need to be with them so much anymore.

Mrs Quinn, 58, who previously held roles at the Wellcome Trust and the Middle Temple, is likely to receive a six-figure salary which will be met by Prince Charles through his private income from the Duchy of Cornwall.
Royal aides acknowledge that Kate will also be taking a significant step up in support of the monarch. Both she and William have been rattled in recent years by suggestions that they are ‘workshy’.

As private secretary, Mrs Quinn will become integral to every aspect of Kate’s private and public life.

A source said: ‘This is a significant appointment and signifies what many see as the “professionalising” of William and Kate’s private office as they embrace a more high profile royal role.’
This basically admits that she's hired by Charles to bring an adult professional to manage the KP offices and even Waity's private life. No more Midds swanning around the royal residences, no more down-time for Waity to smoke fags and watch tacky reality shows on the Telly. If she doesn't like it, then Ms Quinn will tell her to take it up with her employer; Prince Charles.  :tehe:

I think Charles is at a point where he is hoping to get bashed since if he does, he can push back even more against his detested DIL and also begin pushing back against the Midds. The DM might support the Midds, but thankfully no one actually takes the Midds seriously or sees them as victims or even normal anymore. Charles now has the power and he will be wielding it and I am certain that he'll be doing it with relish. The Middletons are likely going to cost Charles his birthright (people talk openly of ending the monarchy) and frankly Charles has had to put up with abuse directed his way for so long that I imagine he fantasizes about revenge.

No offence to any of the posters here but does Anyone actually believe this insignificant prozz*e and her ridiculous tribe of motley perver*s are truly powerful and fighting PC, The Queen or anyone else in the BRF? It is truth the behaviour of the Queen and family is often confusing and sometimes questionable but really the horrid little ho and Council Carol (e) have power? And I do mean real power?   :o I believe the BRF are bungling something which is quite easy to do and if it is their advisors who are encouraging them to put up with this unnecessary ridiculous nonsense then they need to be fired straight away.

The Achilles Heel of the BRF is in fact their openly civilized behavior; they have covered for the couple and publicly stood beside the couple. This is how the Midds get what they want. They played on the 'united front' card that the BRF use all the time; that is why HM is run over so many times and why the BRF is such a mess. As long as the BRF is afraid of openly being 'mean' and being considered snobbish, they will get outplayed time and time again.

I think the Windsors are afraid of a repeat of what happened with Diana in terms of public backlash and the Meddledooms exploit this.  The Windsors have treaded very carefully for optics and have laid the groundwork for the narrative that they did everything they could for her.  The minute the Windsors stop caring about that, the Meddledooms better watch out!

I wonder if Council Cath response to this will be to just dig her infantile heels in, and simply refuse to further engagements or work with Quinn.

Diana is dead and after this twentieth anniversary I am certain that the book will be closed.

WKH are now being brought to heel and clearly the freestyle days are over for them. Kate and William can't cite Diana anymore since they've milked her so shamelessly and everyone is fed up with hearing about her.

Exodus of senior aides in palace shake-up has turned into ‘royal shambles’ as ‘the firm’ is plunged into uncertainty
Quote
It is becoming increasingly clear that the Queen herself has ordered a shake-up of courtiers at the royal palaces as she prepares for a future in which she allows Prince Charles to take the lead.
Those preparing to leave include Prince Harry’s Private Secretary, Edward Lane Fox, while Prince William’s highly-regarded Private Secretary, Miguel Head is expected to be gone by Christmas – although his spokesman has denied this.

The Duchess of Cambridge’s Private Secretary, newly-married Rebecca Deacon has already announced her departure, as has Keeper of the Privy Purse, Sir Alan Reid. And last week it emerged that a second aide to the Queen, Samantha Cohen, Assistant Private Secretary, has tendered her resignation.

The shake-up comes at a key time for the Royal Household, as the Queen, 91, and Prince Philip, 96, step back from frontline duties, leaving younger royals to take up the slack – or Operation Handover, as it is known.

Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 06, 2017, 12:12:55 am
Here's my theory:

William and Harry and Kate are no longer going to have their own independent individual offices and are not going to be able to pull anything behind Charles' back and the courtiers will be more in control. All three are going to be under Charles' office and will work from there so they can be kept an eye on. Since all three do not work so much, there is no real need for staff and so massive resignations are in fact being done instead of firings. From here on out Charles will be more in control of things. I do think that William and Kate and Harry will just end up being under the purview of the staff who answer to Charles.

I do think that giving William an office and staff of his own was a major mistake and now downsizing is occurring.

HM took the view that they're young and would settle down in time; of course, time is the one thing that royals cannot afford to waste. Thankfully neither prince and Kate will no longer be allowed to run wild and I am certain that answering to Charles will be a daily crucifixion after all she's pulled with the BRF and courtiers. Talk about having to earn every little penny of money all over again; she'll regret flouting HM and all her little BS stunts she's pulled since the day of the engagement.


Title: Re: Camb's Staff II
Post by: Stephanie on August 06, 2017, 02:20:32 pm
Very interesting developments.
I bet Wimpo and Waity saw this coming and that's why they are on a smear campaign against Chuck tarnishing the late POW's memory while they're at it.
AND this has got the Viper's claws all over it imo.
My 2 cents:
The Viper wants to mansonize the monarchy using Wimpo as her battering ram.
Mansonizing means doing nothing, burn through money and expect to be fawned over.
HM wants to continue the monarchy as it is and Chuck basically wants the same.
HM and PP want to have a quiet twilight of their lives and want Chuck to take over as prince regent in the near future.
Wimpo and Waity are shell shocked by this because Chuck will expect them to WORK which the refuse.
So that means that Chuck will have to become even more unpopular so the public will take their side when they whine and whinge about the new situation.
Suddenly Wimpo starts nagging about his mental health and suddenly the new Diana tapes come out.
Whoa, what a surprise-not.

All Charles has to do is pull his funding from them, All Wills, Waity and Harry's money to have their own offices comes from Charles. They have no choice but to abide by Charle's rules. It's way overdue anyway. Waity shouldn't gotten as far as to marry in and cause all of this drama. Harry's in a bad situation because he has to go along to get along with Wills as he's the senior royal. Unlike others here who say he's also lazy, I don't think he is. He has to seen as not outshining his brother. We know Wills is lazy and useless, so Harry's somewhat stuck. I wouldn't put it past Wills to be behind Harry's troubles as he knows his brother's weakness and exploited that when people saw Haryy as king material over Wills, imo. Remember that Wills got offended when he was rightly criticized regarding being work-shy, then boom, we have this Harry/Mehgan crap to shift the press away from him and onto Harry. People were even saying that Wills is the more mature stable brother and that they're glad that he's the future heir to the throne. Charles should separate Harry from the Cambs and let them sink or swim on their own. No more of tjis idiotic threesome engagements.  :bored:

Unbelievably, a lot don't *despise* the MIddletons. They believe the hype about a hardworking, respectable, discreet family with poor orange pip being harassed by the paps. The next step, if the Cambridges don't play ball, will be leaks about the Middletons. And let's face it, the facts even before the spin doctors get to them is bad enough.

Kate's former private secretary Rebecca Deacon to be honoured at investiture

Rebecca Priestley, née Deacon, worked for the Duchess of Cambridge for five years

The Duchess of Cambridge's former private secretary Rebecca Priestley, née Deacon is to be honoured next week, most likely by the Queen. Rebecca will be given the Royal Victoria Order at a Buckingham Palace investiture ceremony on Wednesday 11 October. The honour is given to people who have served Her Majesty or the monarchy personally.

Rebecca was a member of the royal household for ten years. She started working specifically as Kate's right-hand woman in 2012, one year after the Duchess married Prince William. Often seen by Kate's side at events, Rebecca's duties included organising official programmes and engagements and ensuring Kate was briefed on who she was meeting.

'Conflict' likely among staff as Royal Family enters a new era
Quote
"I don't think there is a conflict behind the scenes as far as the main players (the royals) are concerned… but there probably is a conflict between the people who are organising them," said Dickie Arbiter.
But Buckingham Palace, Clarence House and Kensington Palace do still at times work to their own agendas, with their own distinctive priorities, as staff try to manage the needs of an ageing monarch.

Looking for work? Prince William, Prince Harry and Duchess Kate are hiring!
Quote
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Prince Harry, are in need of a senior communications officer, according to an official job listing.
The position is a temporary, but it involves daily management of “news flow to the media, communicating with audiences via traditional, digital and social media.”

The royals are looking for someone to take the "lead on communications plans and the delivery of engagements and overseas tours." Applicants must have extensive experience in the field and the “ability to handle sensitive information with tact and discretion” is a must.

Sound like your cup of tea? There’s less than a week left to apply as the post closes on Oct. 26.
The vacancy is the latest opportunity to work with the popular royal trio. Over the summer, the duchess and the two princes sought a senior communications officer for the Royal Foundation, which handles charity projects.

Duchess Kate also lost her private secretary, Rebecca Deacon, who had stepped down after working for the former Kate Middleton for five years and the royal family five years before that.

The job listing does not state how long the position would last, but it undoubtedly will involve handling a lot of sensitive material involving Duchess Kate, who is expecting her third child in April. She only recently has resumed her public engagements after spending more than a month suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, a rare pregnancy complication she also experienced with her two previous pregnancies.

^That's correct. I believe that article/interview that Dickie Arbitar gave on Sky News said as much. Instead of all staff working collectively to get the task done, it seems that some staff felt things were beneath them because they worked for senior royals. I still say that the woman that Charles brought in, the one that the papers are saying will be Waity's new secretary, is in fact his chief of staff who's putting a professional operation to manage Wills, Waity and Harry. The unprofessional and inexperienced staff and, yes, brownosers will have to go and the royals will have to get it through their heads that have to put up with the public's criticism because of their lack of work and relevance in these troubling times. The only way to stem the tide of criticism is to show they make a difference and are good value for money.

On rd someone thinks the woman next to Ms Quinn is Quinn's assistant, who'll take flowers etc from Waity and do that kind of work
https://katemiddletonstyle.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Lawn-Tennis-Association-8.jpg

I guess it's a good possibility, Quinn is truly overqualified for this job and to be Waity's mere assistant. Quinn with her experience etc could easily demand an assistant and good salary plus perks for herself. And I bet the Winds are desperate to give someone like Quinn anything she wants, because whipping Waity into professional shape is a hopeless and near impossible task.

If that is Quinn's assistant (and even if not), she too seems to be well put together, like Quinn herself, polar opposite to Rebecca and Natasha who dressed like Waity clones (I think "Waity-style" was at the time still a sort of dress code, a uniform; and we know the Cambs employ "yes-people" only- at least until now, I doubt Quinn is a yes-person who can be bullied by the ditzy duo and the Meddledooms).

This woman is so accomplished that she could walk way from this gig and have one that pays twice as much before noon tomorrow.

^That’s true enough and I agree^.  I get the feeling Ms.Quinn is a PC hire and reports only, or ultimately, to Charles.  Kate doesn’t seem dedicated enough to seek out someone of this caliber plus she appears ro be only accepting some of Quinn’s dictates and totally iignoring others.  Iow, I don’t think she thinks she needs “improvement”.  She strikes me more as someone who would choose a person of lesser qualities that she could lord over.

But, either way, I don’t see Ms. Quinn putting up with much nonsense for long, either.  She has a professional reputation that matters more to her than this gig.

It has been a busy week for the Windsor brothers, who were spotted partying after the premier of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. on Tuesday night.
After the pair attended the Leicester Square screening of the latest film in the series, they brought the party back to Kensington Palace.
Stars including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Laura Dern were pictured living it up at the royal residence with other superstars not involved in the film including former Spiderman actor Andrew Garfield.
Friendships between the Hollywood actors and the brothers developed after Prince Harry and William undertook secret cameo roles in the Stormtroopers alongside movie hardman Tom Hardy.
They are believed to appear in a scene alongside Boyega and Benicio del Toro, who plays a shady new character called DJ, when the pair are captured in a lift trying to infiltrate an enemy base. 
The Princes were said to be in a good mood during filming, and one of them is saidto have cheekily slapped del Toro's bottom

It's like PR, the business is only as good as the client is willing to do their part. Genuine professionals do not function well in a disorderly environment and I am certain that they're not going to basically function well if the ducal couples don't read the briefs, or attend meetings, or even contribute if they do show up.

And, yes, Harry’s person jumped ship at the same time or nearly seems too coincidental.
