No doubt the other way around, they have asked to go there.  We see through all their tricks. Sorry, no disrespect to either country, but I personally would not set foot in either one, too much unrest and unsavoury goings on.

They need to stay in England, do their duties, at least try to dress right, and make speeches; they have no legitimate reason to go to Poland and Germany (please do not let them near the concentration camps) and should just stay in England.

I think this is deliberately. Germany & Poland don't give a rat's behind to royalty (abolished that nonsense ages ago and never looked back), so the Brits send over two blithering fools, in the hope that the Germans say "Goodness look at the 'top of the crop' of Brits! Brexit was a good thing, cut them loose, quickly!" Might be a smart move from the Brits to get Brexit done quicker on their terms  :cookie:

It is also really telling, as you all have already pointed out, what kind of representation they are and how they conduct themselves, when everyone breaks out in hives, hoping they won't visit historic landmarks and if they do hoping they'll dress appropiately (I mean really, they are so bad they can't even do what 5 year olds are capable of) and not embarrass a whole nation and offend a host of others... They best stay home. Maybe they are holed up in Anmer not because they love it so, but because the Winds hide them away. You can't lock up embarrassing relatives in attics anymore, can you? So you send them off to an estate and say "It's for your privacy" when they actually mean "It's for the whole nation's benefit!"

India, I think they don't know either! Couldn't send a more cluelss pair if they tried..

The government and RF need to stop making the world accept WK on the world stage and need to stop making WK try to 'happen.' It isn't happening and neither will WK. None of them will be spending time being feted, only tolerated. This isn't the Nineties or Eighties anymore and it's not like they're worth the trouble. Politicians rely on the good press coverage and the current criminal trial is going to set a bad precedent. All the security that WK use up should be saved to protect the people and country, not WK trouble-making backsides.

William and Kate will be visiting Auschwitz according to celeb***y.

Quote
During the trip to Poland they are expected to meet Beata Szydlo, the Polish Prime Minister, and visit the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp. A Government source said that the visit will help show Britain’s desire to retain strong links with European nations after Brexit.

I think this ambassador BS has got to be dropped by the PR at the Palace and they should stop trying. At this point in time I am certain that the public isn't under any illusions and really, can't the Palace just say "we know they're useless, but duties are part of the job even though she can't really be taken anywhere."

Post by: HRHOlya on July 03, 2017, 11:29:13 am
To me, this tour is inappropriate for kids this small.
It is also not their first tour, their first tour was that joke of a jolly to Canada.
Most interestingly this isn't even called a "tour", but a "holiday" and "trip", so I guess we have now confirmed what this actually is.

Maybe they are taking the kids to see the Vaterland  :spy: :cookie:

The joke of the year though is KP calling this an "impactful tour". Maybe for the Cambs, but literally no one else. The Poles & Germans aren't exactly weeing themselves with excitement, 99% of people don't even know these floozies are coming and the other 1% are directly involved with the trip.


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: gingerboy24 on July 03, 2017, 01:28:46 pm
Another holdiay at taxpayer expense.   Note they never take the sprogs on a trip around the UK, always away from the UK.  And as for taking them to Germany and Poland, why?  What will they remember?  Sprogs that age want parks, beaches, swimming, playiing, not Auschwitz.  Dearie me, they have hit rock bottom, again, with this one.  Using the sprogs as pr again no doubt, did they not learn from Canada, those sprogs were a pr disaster.


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 03, 2017, 10:28:06 pm
Those kids in Canada was a bad idea; WK looked frazzled and unprepared and if they go and the kids either get too upset (being in that kind of place will traumatize them) or the couple have to get the kids in line while on duty, it'll kind of desecrate the place. These are camps where people were tortured in the most sadistic ways possible and go figure, Kate and William are going to likely act like a middle class family with all the drama all on the world stage. Kate has no business bringing those kids and it's clear that the significance of the place is clearly beyond her comprehension. This will go bad diplomatically.

Kids have no business being in a place like this, this isn't Disneyland and I'm CERTAIN that the kids will get vibes due to all the horrors that happened here. No matter WHAT the organizers to do jazz the place up (even worse considering), little kids have great instincts and will likely be affected by the horrors that went on there. Being a bit of a mystic, there is a residue of what went on there still remaining.They'll sense it and get really upset and act out, which will only hurt them and then cause a ruckus. These kids will not be able to handle this kind of environment.

You know, taking them to this place will in fact NOT be a holiday and this isn't supposed to be the !Cambridge Family Fun Show!

They're being expected to tour a DEATH CAMP and this isn't supposed to be officially a family tour, but a ducal couple seeing significant landmarks.


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: HRHOlya on July 03, 2017, 10:46:01 pm
^ I know, the question is: Do the Cambs know that? Every tour has been a holiday so far and the c camp part is added on almost as after-thought as they obviously can't skip that. I'm beyond curious to see how it's going to go. Exactly because of the c camp part I find it inappropriate to bring the kids. Why not bring the kids to engagements in UK? Always abroad and they add nothing. Canada was short of a disaster. Also, no other royals bring their kids on tours and neither do politicians. If they ever do, they stay in the background and are not mentioned. For the Cambs, they are PR medium only.
I have read that the Cambs ranked highly in French media (by readers or sth, on a dailyfail equivalent), but since they've been there their rating has dropped quite a lot. Tells you everything you need to know about their "charm offensives". Offensives they are, just not charming.  :tehe:


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 03, 2017, 10:53:31 pm
Considering what they're determined to do to the French media and freedom of speech, I am seriously amazed that the French haven't rioted in the streets and I am surprised they've been allowed on the Continent. All things considered, most public figures would be run out of office for what they're doing to the media. A conviction means that they have the power to undo freedom of speech and domineer over an entire nation of which they do not have legal authority.

I think the DM needs to stop trying to revive the 80's and 90's when such asinine BS was considered funny; yet at the same time, even back then spouting off about a family holiday to Auschwitz wouldn't have been done. If the kids act out, it'll be the worst possible place for them to do so.

I think the reality is that HM isn't forking out for couture or designer gear that is perfectly made. During her run--up to the much hyped Australian tour, it was mentioned how Kate was getting large rocks and the best stuff, but in the end there were no major white tie events and she didn't get the best clothes.

Showing this off as a family event/holiday is the stupidest thing ever; no one actually thinks they genuinely do anything of substance and they're going to a concentration camp and neither are seen as anything other than an ornamental nuisance that have to be entertained for a few hours out of a serious work day.

George is not into this travel. He did not want to leave the airplane and had to be coaxed by Will. Kate in white with a flowy skirt (thankfully there was no wind).

Btw George ahorts are too short.

Also I still do not understand why they took the childre. It makes sense ina commonweatlh country not in Poland or Germany. People will be curious but it is not as if George is going to be the king od anything there. And for the kids to have experience in royal events they could do them in UK.

Kate's hair looks much better now, though she still has a tonne of fake hair in.
Wish she'd style it a bit different, with that I mean not have it in her face all the time.

No wonder little Mike is overwhelmed, he's being kept isolated behind thick palace walls 90% of the time and they still stick the poor boy into those horrid shorts, and again a good bit too small.

Why they bring the kids is beyond me. Totally useless and makes work (yeah just had a laugh to myself about the "work" bit) harder than it should be, I mean they couldn't even leave the plane... *rolls eyes*

FYI Cambs, no one gives a fck about you on the Continent, even less so your sprogs. There, I said it.

The shorts looked odd. Very short and with long sleeves? Either long sleeves and pants/trousers or short sleeves and shorts. Probably trousers to match his dad. On the plus side, they seem more comfortable with their parents this time. Maybe they've been reading our comments and started spending time with their children? That would be nice.

Such a happy looking soul   lol  That frock, truly dreadful, disliked it intensely, the boob cones were so Madonna 1980´s, the skirt looked totally ridiculous, the belt thing looked like a coronet of thorns from the resurrection.  Just who advises here is what I want to know, and the granny knot of hair at the back, her hard, cold face.   Jeez, why does HM let them out of their taxpayer funded house, let alone across to Europe.  And why on earth does she have to insist on carrying sprog II.  Both sprogs look more than just over two years old and just coming up 4 years old.  And sprog II is the image of council caro, the spitting image, looks as though she was cloned.

Saw some comments elsewhere, saying Poland not really interested in them and in the sprogs even less.  One veteran of nearly 100 yo was asked if he was delighted to meet council cath and he said not especially in a totally indifferent way.  M;any on other blogs and forums asking just why the took the sprogs with them, an official tour, and only 5 days.

Only council cath could wear a summer frock like that to a concentration camp  -  does she ever stop and think, at all, about what she wears.  A solemn occasion and she wears that frock.  Reminds me of when they visited 9/11 memorial in New York in a very bright fuschia pink coat and killer heels.  Just who advises her on what to wear is what I would like to know, and whoever it is should be sacked immediately.  It is not a tea party for goodness sake, it is a solemn visit to what was a cruel, wicked place where many lived a life of h*ll and others killed.  I despair of that female ever thinking of anyone but herself.

She also wore new jewellery again today, a necklace & earrings, which were as usual completely obstructed by her hair and clothes. Will post in the jewellery thread.

Can' she just try, for ONCE, to get it right and dress conservatively? She isn't just about herself anymore, she's been a married-in representative of the nation and she has no business being this stupid at this stage in her life. As someone who is not born at William's bubble of privilege, she has no business being this clueless. This is deliberate, there is no other way to explain it.

The hilarity of the article of Kate "ditching her nude shoes in favour of block heels" and the like in the dailyfail recently (has been linked to in one of the threads here), only for her to step out of the plane in summer in nude suede heels.... She's impossible.

They were gifted amber jewellery in Poland, cufflinks for him and necklace for her
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFBMKNhXYAEOFid.jpg
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DFBLdwTXUAEE4u3.jpg

The dress she wore above is by Erdem btw, a two piece as obviously seen in some pics.
And open toed shoes are also inappropriate, but well, if Kate wouldn't be appropriate I think pigs would fly and hell would freeze over.
The thunder faces they had on whilst stepping out to the garden party in honour of Liz's bday last night were also typical Cambs behaviour: think the cameras aren't on them & no one sees them and instantly descend into fights and sourpusses.
Liz should have flat out said "No" all those years ago. Or if she doesn't want to be blamed, she should have said "Computer says 'No'." (for reference https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AJQ3TM-p2QI , Walliams is as dead here as Liz during her speeches haha).
Bill is far unhappier than had he not married that insufferable disgrace. And the fail always harping on how the Cambs are about to go on their "charm offensive". They couldn't charm their way out of a friggin paper bag.

^^ Gosh yes, she chose this life and can't even be friggin a*sed to dress appropriately. Everything else would be easier to endure, even the gurning and showing off the ring, if she for gawd's sake dressed as she's supposed to. She's a "royal", she's basically an ambassador for her country and she's showing herself to be only one step better than the tw*ts in Magaluf. She does not get at all that she's basically a public servant and a part of a machinery called "monarchy". It's not at all and never about her, it's about the country & institution. Even if it were about her, showing up like that to concentration camps, war memorials and ground zero is a huge no-no for everyone. Dressing like a joyful clown and flashing everyone left right and centre is disgraceful for any person in any capacity.
I suspect she's a masochist and lives for the bollocking she gets from Bill and possibly others. There really can't be any other logical explanation. Only she's putting the monarhcy on the line and the respect for Britain abroad. But she's too dumb to get any of that.

Those Mirror pix certainly suggest a row - perhaps Poland will be the lazies version of Di and Charles in south Korea when the British Ambassador had to apologise to their hosts for their stony demeanour and the lid was lifted on the lies that all was fine with their marriage.

Rebecca Deacon looks rather tense and worried too

    Couple are in the midst of a five-day tour of Poland and Germany, and touched down in Warsaw yesterday
    They received a rapturous welcome in Gdansk where hundreds of locals lined streets to catch a glimpse
    First stop on today's itinerary was the former Stutthof concentration camp to meet Holocaust survivors
    Duke and Duchess will later visit Gdansk's shipyards, the birthplace of Poland's Solidarity movement
    Tomorrow, the royals will move on to Germany where they will meet Angela Merkel privately

She didn't choose this life, she PUSHED her way into it via a decade long campaign and PR drama, black-guarding the reputation of her own SOVEREIGN and has had the gall to basically slander every person in the BRF. So now suddenly the idiot puts on a front of being shanghaied into it, despite the fact that it was made clear to her numerous times that she wasn't going to be welcomed with open arms and would only be there on sufferance.

I wager she gets off on the dislike since it makes her feel like a victim all the more. It's not like she ever owns her behavior and the dislike and disdain and contempt make her feel all the more like the holy middle class saint who is persecuted by the EVIL upper class who forced her into this marriage.

    William and Kate met Holocaust survivors Zigi Shipper & Manfred Goldberg, 87
    The lifelong friends returned to Nazi death camp in Poland for the first time
    More than 65,000 would be murdered and more than a third were Jewish
    Both Zigi and Manfred lost loved-ones and were taken by ship to Britain in 1946
    They have gone on to educate thousands of children about the Holocaust

The trip is useless and even worse is bringing the sprogs. Leaving baby G home when he was only 8 months old to go to the Maldives (or Seychelles?) and C&G for scuba things, when C was just about born, also left them home when they went all the way to India. But a quickie trip to central Europe and these hands-on parents can't leave their much beloved PR props children home.
I think Britain is trying to make it happen that people see these two dum dums as "ambassadors of substance"; hence the c camp et al.

It's sad to watch because Wills really had it all. Like KF has said, he threw his 20's away swanning around with his useless tacky limpet of a girlfriend Waity instead of tossing her to the side and going on national and international engagements that would've befitted his role as future king. Now he looks a pathetic mess dragging that disaster of a mistake he married, trying to look interested in what's going on around him when all he seems to project is regret at the mess he's made of his life and the disgust he feels for Waity. I'm sure he takes no blame for his current state of life, instead he blames everyone else for allowing him to waste his youth and end up marrying Waity who's so inept, cold and disinterested in her "job" unless it's meeting celebrities at movie premiers or posh parties where she can lord over the aristros her royal position. When I look at her, I do see someone that shouldn't be in her position. She's totally wrong and it's a waste of resources to continue to beef up her pr; to make her out to be Diana-like when she's totally opposite. She's an embarrassment to the UK and the royal family. Now Wills really should hold his head in shame as to why, with all of his resources, he finds himself with such a creature. I still believe that the Harry MM mess was/is a distraction to deflect on the short-comings of Wills/Waity lack luster marriage and purpose. 6 years in, and they've no substance to speak of; no bridging the gap between the public and the posh set, no reason why the public should ralley behind them.
I see no purpose of this trip at all. It's just more of the same waste of time.  I'm sure will be in store for more mishaps and lack of class, sense and grace as Waity will continue to wear ill appropriate attire and say dumb things as Wills shifts between looking board and angry. :bored:

I can't get over how pointless this trip is; she has no business being in that position and has no business dressing so frivolously. She shouldn't have dressed like she was going to a CW Television series garden party and she has no business with her hair in her face. This was a pointless trip. As for William, he could have had it all by now, but threw it away for the wrong reasons and chose a wasted life. He could have been in meetings at a high level to benefit his country and could have made it through a lot of the struggles that anyone goes through as their life changes and has to restructure.

Apparently the large crowds in Poland yesterday were because the people were there anyway for the market, plus tourists and seems to be the same case today in Berlin: no one there for the Cambs, but they happened to be there anyway and then stuck around to see what the fuss was about.

The kids are making their appearances on airports only. Even if anyone was excited about the kids, it should dawn at this point on them that it's useless and PR only.

And for gawd's sake, burn all your nude shoes Kate, and why wear suede in such warm weather???? Ruined today's outfit.

That CW coat dress, that we're all super sick of, would have been much more appropriate at the concentration camp.  It's structured but not severe which is the right signal to send, not whoo-hoo, garden party!

^^That well-dressed lady is the wife of the President, right?  Anyway, if you notice, it's not so much the dress, although it is perfect, but her bearing, poise, posture is what makes the difference.  Kate is always just a few steps behind her outfits with endlessly hunched shoulders and a timid way about her that just sets my teeth on edge.  And, again, Lose. The. Beige-patent-suede-whatever-shoes for God's sake!

Yes, she's the wife and yes, Kate should take some inspiration from her, also Letizia and Merkel as well. Merkel has her weird pose too (see here http://wizbangblog.com/images/2009/09/3949865963_faa30f0e85.jpg), but her overall presentation is professional.
I too thought that today's coat would have been much better for yesterday.
Though today they visited the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin

^You're right.  I take it back about the coat dress.  The concept is right but it's still too short especially the dress underneath which is soooo stupid.  Her knees should not be showing.  It's super simple, Kate.  And she's always having to touch her coat to keep it closed so it's another fail for me.  This was a complete no-brainer.  Longer coat dress, lower heels.  She looks just a tad unkempt, too, and I can't figure that one out.

^ As you said, it's the way she carries herself; but what also immediately sprung to mind is her hair... Even when up, it's always a sloppy job. She always has a hairnet - a sure sign that the person who did the hair doesn't know how to properly do it. And neither does Kate change hairdresser, nor does her hairdresser train to improve up-do skills and tiara hair. No one in that household seems to have even the tiniest bit of drive for improvement. No one, neither staff nor bosses. And now that she's cut it, she still has loads of fake hair in (likely extensions or a weave) and her up-dos still remain in "low bun" territory, as the weave/ extensions don't allow for a high up-do, which would have looked smashing with any tiara. Other women use fake hair too, but it's usually one or so strand to clip in or braid in, which does not damage the hair and is for just that hairstyle: to plump up an up-do for example. At the end of the day, when you take off your make up you also remove those strands. Kate should use that. The cut is good now, but she needs to learn better styling and it would look better w/o all that fake hair, it's still in "mop" or "cocker spaniel" territory.

^^^ & ^^ I feel the same way. In Canada she did really well with that red dress and hair and all.
This is a garden party for a bday, sure, but it's a diplomat's garden party for a head of state, not your average garden party for someone's bday...
Everyone predicted she'd miss the mark, esp at the c camp, & guess what, she did. Even when on point, her frock is too short. There's always sth off and I wouldn't nitpick like this if it were someone else, but someone who always gets it wrong you can't help but point out every mistake. You can't even say "oh she's off this time, let's cut her some slack", because she's off every single time, save for maybe twice a year, when miraculously she gets it right.

^ So far it's only airport and I'm not aware that it will change. No engagements or anything for the kids, airport only. I gues it goes back to the Middleton roots of being a steward/ess??  :spy:

Technically the question isn't bad per se, but with Kate it just looks like a massive occasion of "foot in mouth part 11234564464".
She hasn't set the best record for herself, in any area sadly. I think that'll be her biggest downfall: she does nothing right, she literally refuses to learn from her mistakes and repeats them over and over again.

Why bring the kids along at all if they're only seen at the airport? Seems like a waste of taxpayer money buying plane tickets, lodging, food, security for the two kids and their nanny/nannies. Much cheaper to stay and eat at home. W&K need to be more aware of their spending. They've never had to struggle in life, but many, many people are barely making ends meet at the moment and don't want their tax dollars wasted.


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: meememe on July 20, 2017, 12:20:45 am
As they are using a 'private plane' - which I suspect is the one used by senior royals and politicians - they aren't buying individual tickets. The plane is going with one person or to maximum capacity. That means no extra cost for taking along the kids and their security etc. They would be staying at the Embassy so again no additional cost as the costs would be included in the Embassy budget anyway - how they spend their budget it up to them.

If the British government didn't think the kids should be there they would have said 'no' but they realise the PR advantages of having the kids along. Most of the coverage, for instance, shows the kids and they are being used by the British government as much as William and Kate.

"They will end their five-day tour by giving way to a departure shot of the family, another opportunity to see George and Charlotte.

And fans of the royal children should make the most of it as it's likely that, after a week in the spotlight, they will be having some time away from the cameras when they arrive home."

What absolutely baffles me is that Sink Estate Kate, what with her common roots and all, would be able to relate to people on SOME level or another.  She just can't do it.  Might as well put a cabbage* in a miniskirt and people would get far more intelligent conversation.  She can't stand around and look pretty because she fails at that too.
It makes me sad to think of all the oxygen wasted on this one.  Really, it does.

Here's a throw of my view:

Kate doesn't WANT to relate to anyone on her level or on any level other than that of titles and money and trust funds. Her entire family is the same; she hates her very ancestors and *despise* her peers and hates all she has in common. You would think she would want that connection, but she does not. LIke a lot of her peers, she mistakes knowing better with being less virtuous. She equates ignorance with virtue.

You are absolutely  right, she just can't do it . She hasn't the skills and abilities to fulfil the role she pushed herself in to.  No matter how many princess lessons, advice etc that she gets she is simply not up to the job.  She thinks that vulgar open mouthed guffawing, hand flapping, head nodding, pursed mouth (when trying to look serious) will see her through.  When ma concocted her 'business's plan' to ensnare Bill there was no forward planning, the only thing that mattered to that social climbing family was to get the ring on Cath's finger.  The latest 'Brexit Ambassadors' visit has highlighted it even more.  She looks like Carmen Miranda minus her castanets in her latest ensemble.

I still can't get over those photos from the garden party in Poland when William turned to say something to Kate on the steps.  I don't know if he was squeezing her arm really hard or what, but whatever he said was HARSH. That look on her face was something I have never seen before.  Wonder if it had something to do with her saying they should have more babies, who knows?  If that weren't Kate, I would otherwise have felt sorry for her.  I've seen William get snappy with her in public, but whatever this was about made him totally apoplectic.

On council cath it looks like something from the local charity shop, and other than the beach or maybe an evening event bare shoulders are not the order of the day for a garden party, it doesn´t even sit nicely on her.  The frock could look good on someone else at a very different event  As ever, she makes it look like a cheap and tacky old dish rag.

There is nothing regal about that vile duo, nothing at all.  No disrespect to Poland (or Germany, I lose track) but this photo looks as though it is a very amateur outing  -  I find it amazing they have no presence at all, either of them, and are consistent in making everything they do look down market.  Amateur productions can look more professional than than this turn out  -  Bill medd is certainly no longer a windsor with his ways, the medds have done a good job of dragging him into the gutter with them.

Wills is looking more unattractive the longer this sham of a marriage goes on. He's made a very huge mistake bringing her into the royal family.

^ German media rarely reports on the Cambs, maybe thrice a year and recently they did a short TV segment and it was about sth rather unimportant, because the Cambs don't give enough substance. Anyway, when they do report, it is sycophantic drivel they may have lifted off the astroturfers (not quite that bad, mind, but you know it's all fairytale and positive)  :ick:

Today a German woman was on, a teacher, about 50 yrs old, and she buys Kate's clothes. She was at the Brandenburg Gate and cried when they walked past, approx 500 meters away from her!! You could barely make the Cambs out! This gives you an idea http://www.telegraph.co.uk/content/dam/news/2017/07/19/TELEMMGLPICT000135166111-large_trans_NvBQzQNjv4BqNfy3y1bAskprEdfySmFJFXkjmavmaT7SqHB73tQA3GI.jpeg

There's also some saddo in the US who buys Kate's clothes... The German woman spent 500Eur on one of the dresses (this one http://i3.mirror.co.uk/incoming/article10158219.ece/ALTERNATES/s615b/Kate-Middleton.jpg) and has it on a mannequin. Says she strokes it when she walks past and is all happy. Now that I'm writing it down it must have been a joke segment. Unbelievable. She even went to the B Gate in one of Kate's dresses and said "I don't think she'll recognize the dress, these things don't matter to her" and then the irony: Kate walks past and she couldn't have been further away, looked like midgets walking past in the background. I just thought "yeah, Kate won't recognize the dress, because she doesn't know what tf is in her frikkin wardrobe".

There's an article on C "curtseying" at the Warsaw airport; has it been posted? Anyway, poor kid was just impatient and maybe needed the potty, but nope, Liz's little twin already knows duty and curtseys (to no one remarkably!)!  :laugh: here's the link http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4713784/Princess-Charlotte-performs-curtsy.html

The yellow dress today is fine. Paired with her wedges. Ffs. Wish she'd burn them along with her "nudes". Wish she'd wear flats often. There are some super stunning flats available and as snazzy as heels are, they ruin your feet and are just not worth it. Many even produce now the same model of shoe as killer heel, medium heel and flat pair. Wish flats had better promotion. The Clotheshorse can't even clotheshorse properly and set at least that trend, women all over will be grateful (for once). Get on it fashionista Kate!

Are these new (ugly it seems to me) earrings? Are definitely costume jewellery.

I have friends in Germany, and they are laughing like drains - saying what rubbish  the press are printing   -  licking a$$ they said, as very few in Germany are bothered with them.  My friend Traudel said that nobody she knew was going anywhere to see them, reckons they must be bussing them in.  Also said that some of the places, like Brandenberg Gate, tourists alre always gathered there, every day of the week, so the crowd was not especially for the lamebridges.  More media hype and rubbish, very few are buying it, can see right through it. As for the sprogs, what was the point taking them.  Someone on another blog said that, and might be on here too, said allegedly they were requested to take the sprogs, but many think the truth of it is they said they were taking the sprogs and the Foreign Office had to make up a good reason  -  which makes more sense to me, requesting two under four´s to go to Poland and Germany and only see them at airports.  Ludicrous and a waste of money.

So here we have the outfit today, plus bill medd in his usual boring check jacket, navy trousers and, again, brown suede shoes  -  has nobody ever told him how ridiculous those shoes look with navy blue trousers.

To me, she comes across as heavily conceited in her answer to the compliment. A bit like "yes I know, tell me sth I don't know!"

Bill's shoes, like Kate's, are a total miss. They don't fit the outfit, but at least he's not in one of his 100 blue suits.

She looks bored witless in that pic above gb.

I really dislike this top. Not as such per se, it just reminds me heavily of the 1990s somehow and of homewear. I'd wear that as comfy thing at home.

PS I forgot to add this; I remembered heavyarethecrowns blog, I stumbled accidentally onto that blog ages ago and that's when I learnt about the Cambs true selves and what they were like pre wedding and all that. Heard loads about "the forums" on that blog and then whilst googling found this one and later rd. Thought I'd see what Rachel was writing, as I thought her to be always on point, and popped by. Here are some posts which I think say it all

Kate's outfit to the c camp. I somehow always pictured open toed shoes, but nope, she wore bloody sandals!!!
http://heavyarethecrowns.tumblr.com/post/163205835864/guide-to-jewish-funeral-service-rituals-and

Someone who visited a camp too and writes about the reminder posted there to respect the grounds, as you basically walk on graves (not Katiekins though in her floral summer dress and pretty killer heel sandals with blood red nails...)

Jen Aniston said about Brad Pitt that he lacks the sensitivity gene (or chip?), same goes for Kate. Bill too, but Kate I think offends more and more often with her total lack of sensitivity.

^ and ^^ I agree it is shades of Diana because KM and Council Carol(e) have planned it that way. KM is aping Diana still and will continue to do so. They are planning to portray KM as the poor victim Diana they are assigning the role of evil Charles to William and are anxiously awaiting the woman PW is going to marry so they can call this woman the evil homewrecker Camilla. That's why I started the "on divorce/annulment watch or how to copy Diana's divorce from PC" thread because that is some of what the Medds are planning. I keep hearing KM is or is planning to have an affair and the outcome is explosive ala Fergie. Don't know that it is  truth but this is conspiratorial on their parts and planned ahead of time so they can't play the victim of the awful press blah blah blah.

As for this latest holitour it is yet another unnecessary and thoroughly preventable snoozefest.  As for what she said to have asked the concentration camp survivor is beyond words in its vulgarity and shocking lack of compassion and empathy.  Thee children should not be there. I see she is still trying to dress and wear her hair and make-up to try to remind PW of the true love of his life. PW looks more and more like he is trying orr going to jump our of his skin. All.in all another as expect epic fail. She just doesn't want to leave does she? It seems she is going to have to be thrown out. Either by PW or PW and new woman. When is this latest charade going to end?  Tick tock tick tock.

I do not believe he has another woman because he saw the suffering of his mother, and he seems to me a very correct person in everything he does, and he would not cause any suffering to her - Catherine. And I believe that he too is a very clever man, if she or her mother - Catherine or Carole -  tries to denigrate his image - William, he will know how to undo evil, and deal with it.
As for her - Catherine - copying his mother - Diana - in everything, it is quite likely, because even a blue car like his mother - William - had before marriage, so had she, before having the audi.
And as for having another woman, no other woman in the world is going to want to get involved with William, and to have a life tormented by the Middleton family, forget about it, he's going to have to die next to his wife - Catherine. :cookie:

Post by: sandy on July 20, 2017, 05:33:14 pm
I think William is having issues with his father. I notice how pointedly Camilla talked about Charles reading to HER grandchildren not his. So I don't think William sees much of his father or stepmother. Also there are "dueling" campaigns in the William/Harry and Charles camps. One week about how special Diana was and the next a blast of promotion for Camilla. I don't think William will ever emulate his dad. If William and Kate have issues I doubt it will be about his keeping a mistress or behaving like his father.

Post by: HRHOlya on July 20, 2017, 06:31:55 pm
If Will were so considerate towards his significant other in consequence of his parents' disastrous marriage, Di's pain and Charles's legendary cheating, then he wouldn't have cheated first with Kate (both were involved with others when Kate roped him in as bed bunny) and then throughout their courtship on Kate.
I'll never buy the "Bill will never do that because of his mother/ parents" rethoric. And if he was capable of continuously cheating with and then on Kate, then a wedding/ marriage won't change that. Bill even flat out refused to wear a wedding ring.
^ The Will/ Harry vs Charles articles have been really extremely noticeable in the past few months. I wonder what's going on behind the scenes.

The whole media and spectators were in Germany I think also a result of media being there a letting one of those Kate doppelgangers loose. She's British and her name is Heidi Agan. They had her all over town to test how people would react and some thought she was real. Then they went eating and left without paying (came back though to clear up, they were testing how much they could get away with) and went to a jeweller's, where the TV crew chose a 30000Eur necklace that "Kate" was "interested" in (diamonds & sapphires in the style of the ring of doom) and she promptly received a max of 20% off, because Kate'd be "marketing" for them. Yeah, no, Kate wouldn't, she markets only Kiki.
Heidelberg now expects a flock of tourists because the ditzy dup were there. Good luck with that Heidelberg, methinks you didn't do proper research on the true "Kate effect".. Heidelberg alone has spent 80000Eur on them for this one day! Kids had the day off school, because reaods were so heavily blocked, they basically couldn't get to school... smh.

I think William isn't faithful to Kate since it's clear he has no love of her and since she's made it clear she's married for money and status, that he's making her earn every pence.


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July

William did not have a Camilla even pre-marriage, the ones he wanted did not want him (like Isabella). Kate campaigned to win William back for weeks and Will I guess just settled.

 :sorry: I'm going to post my response in the on divorce/annulment the watch thread if anyone cares to follow me over there.

About the tour: unnecessary and boring per the usual. And I noticed the smug look on KMs face is back in some of the pics. I just can't with this person. And one last thing: she over does it with the theme/colours of the flag dressing. One or two outfit and or accessories is Okay but... well... and the arrival with everyone matching yada yada was overkill, too....  she tries too hard she seems like a constant con job....  :thumbsdown:

PS and what's with the cone boobs? WTF?!!?  I see she didn't stuff her cone tyts she never seems to or at least not a truly huge pair of falsies/fake tatas like she does with her non cone boob outfits. The top part of the dress reminds me of something a stripper would wear in a tytty bar.  :dontknow:

Such a horrid frock, she really has not done a good job, again, of her frocks.  Looks a little overdressed for a garden party  -  and then we have bill medd in his tatty old blue check jacket, same ole blue trousers and no doubt the brown suede shoes.  She doesn´t look a happy bunny in this photo. Well seen Chris Jackson with them, they both look very heavily photoshopped, miraculously all those wrinks, zits and pock marks have been removed, lines around the mouth, turkey neck -  amazing what you can do with photoshop, especially when paid well to do it.

There was no good reason with the sprogs were taken with them, they only get to be seen at airports. Apart from anything else why upset and disturb their routine at home just to parad them at airports, very unfair on those two sprogs, dragged along for pr purposes.  

There is also the little matter that they are kept hidden in the UK, but get paraded around the world.  Something wrong there somewhere.  The British taxpayers fund them, start to finish, yet they are paraded in other countries away from the UK.  And they wonder why they have lost their popularity, too thick and stupid to realise the way they behave turns people away from them.  Who wants to support lazies, our tax money could be better spent, and not on them.

What was the point of this tour other than glorified sightseeing?

The British Government wants senior royals to visit Europe to keep the ties there while undertaking the Brexit talks. Earlier this year it was Charles and Camilla to Roumania (Charles only), Italy and Austria and then later to Ireland and now William and Kate to Poland and Germany - so 5 out of 27 nations visited with Spain making a State Visit.

The decision to send them was the Foreign and Commonwealth Office - the same people who decided to send Charles and Camilla to Canada for the 150th anniversary events.

If the government didn't feel they were getting something out of these tours they wouldn't be happening. Just because we don't see it doesn't mean there aren't benefits to Britain with this sort of soft diplomacy.

Trouble with the media is that they are manipulated and told what to release.    From people on the ground nobody has been that impressed with the visit of the vile duo, but the press are hyping it all up, no doubt been ordered to.  In truth what have they ahcieved?  Not a lot.  Took two sprogs only seen at airports, both dressed pretty poorly, most of the crowds are people who would be visiting these places anyway, July is holidy time in Germany for sure, we have some very good friends who live in Germany.  For me it was another damp squib and a waste of time and taxpayer money, not just UK but Poland and Germany taxpayers.  Nothing outstanding about this club med trip, not even the clothes council cath wore and inappropriate for the occasion.

Looks in the 2nd gif like K says "there's photographers, behave" and C is like "I'll show you woman!" and then throws herself on the floor  :tehe:
Kids dressed same as the other day. And has Kate had a flashing moment when she crouched down to C?

Someone else's interpretation from rd
"Charlotte turned her head away from her when she started acting up. It's before she sat down. Was she looking for nanny Maria? Kate was unable to comfort her in the 1st gif. She turned around looking for Maria. Kate had to pick her up so the nanny didn't come into the picture. Kate's expression was quite hard as if she's telling her to cut it off. At least, that's what I see on my cell phone."

"Well, that calls into the wisdom of bringing kids so young along on official trips. All they did were to travel from airport to hotel to airport."

Sometimes it's difficult to tell height in photographs because of posture, shoes, different level ground, etc. And people can vary an inch or two between photographs if they move a little. Kate is 5' 8" or 5' 9" according to those who knew her at university. Rob at celebheights (very accurate with his listings, IMO) has her at 5' 8.75". Diana was 5' 10", so that's where that number comes from: people wanting Kate to be the "new Diana" instead of being her own person.

Even if the British government wanted the senior royals to tour Europe because of Brexit, there was no need to bring the kids along. They're too young, it costs extra taxpayer money, and it's not good to disturb their daily routine. They threw temper tantrums in public? That is not a surprise at all, considering they are 2 and 3 (4 tomorrow) years old!

Nanny probably calmed her down in the plane. IT would not be normal if either of them did not throw temper tantrums at their age.


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: HRHOlya on July 21, 2017, 11:35:37 pm
^^ Yes, they all wanted to make her Diana 2.0, the Midds, Kate herself, the press, Bill.. They put out many ridiculous claims incl that about height. But even they stuck with the lie that she's 5'10", so many still look for comparisons like above to dispute that, after all these years...

^ Very normal, but we saw the kids I think 3 times and every time at an airport and 2 out of 3 one of them acted up. In itself that's no big deal, but the problems are manifold with them: the kids are not accustomed to public appearances, b/c W&K don't give a rat's a*s, they are out of their routine, away from their home and all these strange people either speak in gibberish (which is what a foreign language is to anyone, but to kids hearing a foreign language can have quite the effect) or broken English, and how did they spend their time? Cooped up in hotels and residences the whole time? Other royals, celebs and politicians take their kids as well on trips, because they don't want to be away from their family, which is perfectly fine. But the issue with W&K always circles back to them hiding the kids away, not accustoming them to appearances, handing out terribly photoshopped pics once every blue moon/ when a scandal breaks and blatantly using their kids as PR props, and I think few other people in the public eye, esp royals and politicians, are as bad as they are.

This is a nugget:
When Monte Cassino veteran Colonel Edmund Brzozowski, 98, was asked if meeting Kate had been a good experience, he replied: "Not especially."
 :laugh:

The pic above I posted "from the other day", is the Cambs with their team. Many recognizable faces.

I have now also read many times how Kate (as always) clung to C and Will tried a few times to take C over (at time the situation even called for it) but K wouldn't let go of C and quit talking to officials at the airport rather then have Will handle C. That she clutches C and won't let go of her worse than her da*n clutches has always been very noticeable and a bit creepy. I wonder what she'll do once C is bigger and won't have/ doesn't need hands-on Kate all the time right next to her.

Maybe they could have George and Charlotte learn some foreign languages for when they travel as they get older. Spanish, French, German are good places to start. Mandarin would also be good. Polish would be a good introduction to the Slavic language family, or Russian because it's more widely spoken. And then don't forget the Arabic-speaking royal families in the Middle East. So many to choose from.  :dontknow:


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: HRHOlya on July 22, 2017, 01:24:11 am
^ If I were in their shoes I would definitely hire several tutors for several languages and have them learn from toddlerhood onwards. Which languages people choose is up to them.
Language learning and bi-/ multi-lingualism is so great for the brain and for the future, there are countless studies that show that. On top of that they will no matter what mingle once grown in diplomatic and business circles, so knowing languages is even more important for them than the average person. I do hope that the kids learn Spanish from Maria. If true that they do, then I have to applaud them for making at least that very good decision in terms of upbringing.
It is beyond embarrassing that W&K & H know English only (I'll note though that H is rumoured to know one African language).

So, we have the lazy duo, the two sprogs and a whole load of people around them, and all supported and paid for by taxpayers in UK, Germany and Poland. Right, what mugs us taxpayers are.  Brexit my foot, they will have done nothing for Brexit, not a thing.  Beyond belief really.  And still they turned out like scruffs, can´t believe what a mess bill medd was, even his suits were well wrinkled, and as for those old checky coats, and his tatty brown suede shoes worn with navy slacks.  Obviously "the team" did not do a good job.  They all have poor style, straggly hair and council cath´s frock looks even more bizarre in this shot.

Revealed: Kate's £26,000 tour wardrobe as the Duchess pulls out all the stops to showcase Polish, German AND British fashion in an impressive display of diplomatic dressing

    Duke and Duchess have just returned from five-day tour of Germany and Poland
    The tour has been dubbed a 'charm offensive' as Britain leaves the EU
    Kate pointedly picked pieces from Polish, German and British designers
    MailOnline can reveal her wardrobe is worth more than £26,300 in total

"Impressive"? Imo not quite.
The mismatched ruby & diamond jewellery from the first day is here noted to be from G Collins & Sons
"GH Collins & Sons necklace (£1,525) and earrings (£1,880): £3,400"

She looks bad here

That cone boob dress might, if worn by someone else, looked good, although not something I would want to buy. Plus she had that grumpy face, where we think they had just had a row, and her facelooks awful,  IMO there is a lot wrong between them behind closed doors.

^ Maybe KP did not want the public to see how many people, on the taxpayer dime, were on the tour with them  -  did they actually do anything for themselves, either than look a mess and mismatch clothes/shoes, and to show they had a row in public, that face is might grim.

^ I too was surprised that many people were on this tour and yet it was really an easy tour nothing important just sightseeing and waving.  okay everyone including the nanny and security were in this picture but still.  Obviously they don't pay enough or warn people ahead because the nanny is one of the better and more professional looking individuals there! (No wonder the kids look for her)

Who actually initiated this trip - did WK people suggest and then force/cajole the countries to invite them. I don't see them selling British goods skills to these countries to reassure the trade when Brexit occurs. At some point hte Brits pay for this trip - clothes, travel, security etc.  Who determines the itinerary - guests or hosts because the hosts certainly sent them to some silly PR stops.

Post by: HRHOlya on July 22, 2017, 03:29:17 pm
^^ I suspect the same. They realized how many staff there are in the pic and knew that it was a bad idea to show how many are needed for the normal hands-on Cambs who are so keen on work and about to hit the ground running... They should have left the pics, as written above, once it's on the net, it'll never be off again...

Oh dear, maybe a nice trouser suit would have been more suitable, or at least a straight frock.  Letizia always wears them well, they can look lovely.

This collection of photos I came across on another blog, RD I think it was, I don´t care for any of those outfits, none of them suit her or were particularly suitable.  I think the worst one is that blue Catherine Walker coat thing, she looks like a worn out old washer woman in that, top of it too tight.

^Great composition of all of her unfortunate attempts at fashion leadership on this joyride/super important visit.  (Last photo link in your post.)

What really stands out to me in that photo, though, is in every single one she's nothing more than a hand model for Big Blue.  It's ridiculous how she shoves that to the forefront at all times.  It's gotta be in her contract or something.

Is this complete waste of time and money trip finally over now?


Title: Re: Poland and Germany July
Post by: HRHOlya on July 22, 2017, 11:50:36 pm
^ Your second paragraph is funny! And very true.

Yes, the holiday tour is finally over.

They are expected in Belgium though, I think the 30th & 31st July (WWI commemoration I think, if I'm not mistaken Charles & Camilla will be there too; I'm clearly hazy on the details!). Basically two trips in two weeks abroad, they'll need a major holiday to recover.

^^ lol at the being a hand model for big blue....she does love presenting it to the forefront though. (She doesnt really have much else to offer now I think on it.)

and yes they will need a vacation to recover from all this "work", They'll be in hiding til October no doubt.

this was the most boring tour ever. Are George and Charlotte sidelined to being Airport sideshows now?
