^ I was jsut thinking that.  Somebody is worried about the competition.  Right now Sparkles is feeding into Ma's hands and for once making WK look decent.  However, a new dynamics - Sparkles & Quinn -  means the usual MO is not going to work anymore.  All of them are going to get called out more and more.  Plus showing her driving is a nice way for her to say "I can't work every day - once every few weeks I play mommy."

And why is she smiling - is it because Ma will be happy that the paps they called found her in the traffic?

I think she's happy since she's in her comfort zone; she isn't around people where she's way out of her league  and she is not at all doing royal appearances. If she hadn't married William, she would in fact be doing this, but she is a royal, but determined to be as 'normal' as possible. This is her normalcy. So she's getting her way in doing normal things, even if she's putting herself at serious risk. She refuses to adjust to the royal way of doing things, or at least put herself in a less vulnerable position. With all the lunatics, she shouldn't be doing this.

The dutiful Duchess! Pregnant Kate has her busiest start to the year EVER with 38 engagements to date - three times as many as previous years -despite being weeks from giving birth

The Duchess of Cambridge has had her busiest start of the year to date - completing 38 official engagements so far this year despite being weeks from giving birth.
Kate, who is more than seven months pregnant, has had a whirlwind calendar so far - including a jam-packed overseas tour to Sweden and Norway.
This has been another busy week, with visits to the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and St. Thomas' Hospital on Tuesday and an appearance at the Royal Foundation Forum on Wednesday.
The Duchess has completed more than three times as many engagements so far this year compared to the same period last year, when she completed 11 engagements.
It comes after Kate, 36, missed several engagements at the end of the last year due to severe morning sickness.
In the past, she and Prince William have been accused of not pulling their weight, with the couple often completing fewer engagements than older members of the royal family over the course of a year.
Experts say the recent influx of engagements may be due to Kate wanting to help Meghan with her first steps into royal life, as well as the Duchess preparing to take time off after the birth of her third child.

I think the comments are unforgiving; basically they're calling her out and calling her trips to Norway and Sweden as a holiday and how galling it is to call the trips work. I do believe that it's cut and dry, but the comments are almost universally negative. The palace can no longer protect her and neither can the columnists.

It only took almost 7years for her to get off her backside and appear to be working as a full time “royal.” She’ll always be Waity to those of us with long memories. I can’t consider her royal either as all she did was marry into the family and maintained her Waity ways. I find it funny too that she’s looking down her nose at MM when she’s very much similar to her. :bored:


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 03, 2018, 06:47:21 am
I think Kate might be very close to the point of no return with the public; the comments are scathing and there's nothing the PR at the palace can do for her now. People are tired of her schtick about getting her clothes right or not flashing the public at events. Certainly choosing to do a month's worth of appearances is novel to her and I am certain that she's unaware that the public is not impressed. She made the public wait too long and frankly the public will try to find someone who actually lives up to the hype. Her engagements are in fact (quite bluntly) the equivalent of field trips and Kate clearly has no interest in actually doing day to day work at clinics or anywhere else. So it's not like her appearances as patron are the social part of behind the scenes work. No one sees her making daily trips to clinics or hospitals or hospices and I do not believe that she's even trying all that much anymore.

A few more scandals and I am certain that she won't be divorced (at least not in HM's lifetime), but she will be quietly ostracized. She does nothing for her charities that she started out with and nothing can convince me that she's been active with her original patronages. The children's hospice is in Wales and she's likely never there. She really is someone who truly does not belong and she is someone who clearly just wants to mooch around and order staff about.

She's only upping her numbers until she gives birth, whereas she will quit appearances to 'rest' and use her maternity leave. That will take another six months and I am sure by then, the press might actually have the guts to either call her out or just ignore her once she gets back on the scene. Frankly with all her threats and lawsuits I'm surprised the press is so benign about her. the US press would either ignore her or make her a national punching bag.

Post by: marion on March 03, 2018, 08:18:17 pm
 She's only upper her numbers recently in an effort to ensure MM doesn't take too much of the spotlight from her.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on March 03, 2018, 10:50:33 pm
^ That's imo definitely one of the reasons. I've always thought and said that Waity would only kick it up a notch once Harry marries. Another (young) duchess is too much competition.
I also think it's just her rush to up numbers before she's off on "maternity leave"; and additionally Quinn and the Winds cracking the whip and having her reschedule cancelled engagements due to her fantasy "HG" last year. :bored:


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Rosella on March 03, 2018, 11:48:05 pm
I think this is definitely an effort to push her numbers up above her pathetic effort in 2017. They also had to cancel several engagements last year because of the HG thing so Kate is also playing catch up as well. The Commonwealth Day service may well be her last engagement as she didn't have any engagements for a month before both George and Charlotte's births. She will probably IMO be taking leave for a couple of months at least after the baby arrives except for a few events like Harry's wedding, so that may well take it to the end of June if it's a mid April birth.

Kate is going to have to work a lot harder to make up for her years of negligence and shirking; during one interview Ingrid mentioned how Kate hasn't put a foot wrong, but Ingrid herself wrote a column chastising Kate for missing the Irish Guards ceremony. Kate has flouted tradition, slandered the aristos and courtiers and persecuted the media. It's not going to take a new child and a handful of poshy stunts with a mental health charity to make up for it. When she takes more time off after having her baby (away from London in isolation from the press and public) the reality is that she's just adding to the deficit of goodwill. The press has been oddly decent about her and William pushing them around and shrieking the Diana card and certainly, the public has been beyond patient and forgiving. 

Quinn has a lot of work on her hands and it's shameful how a fully grown adult woman has to be mothered in order to do her duties and dress right. She's practically near middle age now and she has no business being so childish. Kate keeps up the act that she's an ingenue with no worldly experience and she oddly gets treated accordingly. For some reason William bends over for her and basically the BRF lets her get away with everything that is ruining the BRF. HM has lost face and dignity through giving Kate one nonstop chance after another and go figure, flouting HM's set traditions and preferences. I am certain that HM has in fact facing a lot of smirks at the hands of the other world leadership where clearly she has lost control and respect of the 'new' generation of royals.

Why are Kate's fingers all the SAME length? It's all down to hormones in her mother's womb and shows she's empathetic, say experts (who give their views on the rest of the Royal Family too)

    Composition of  Kate's hands reveal she holds traits like creativity and sensitivity
    Prince Philip’s fingers show he is tactile and extremely fussy about what he eats
    Queen's hands reveal she finds multi-tasking a breeze and has a great memory
    Harry and Meghan both have index and ring fingers that are the same in length
    Bodes well for couple as it indicates they are loyal and less likely to be unfaithful

You know, I really am surprised that William didn't see all the red flags flaring in front of his face.

In regards to s.e.x., being buddies with a sex club owner, being involved in the launch of a sex toy (while wearing bunny ears), and basically living a life of jet set debauchery (along with the fact that she followed him around so many times his security had a talk with her), you would think that he would have realized that something wasn't quite right with her in her mindset. It's one thing to have a healthy love life, but this isn't healthy.

All this shadiness (along with dropping all her friends and schoolmates) should have set off warning signs. Throw in how she blamed the palace (and press) for her lack of a job and blaming everyone around her but herself, William should have seen her as bad news. I'm astounded that the palace didn't sit William down and basically tell him that Kate was unacceptable due to all this stuff (plus taking him to her uncle's drug den) and I do believe that it might have gotten through to him.

Supposedly when Charles (supposedly) asked William's mindset on marrying Kate, it ended up with the 2007 breakup and for a while it looked like Kate was out. I think that if Charles had decided to have a long serious talk and point out what I have, maybe Charles would have saved his son from the biggest mistake of his life. I can't get over how Charles let Kate push his son around and I do believe it is quite disgusting that Kate threw herself at a bunch of toffs trying to make him jealous.

 The Palace cannot control Willy Boy or Harry for the simple reason that they have them by the balls. Crude this appears to be but it is the truth. The Boys know that TPTB/RF ordered the murder of their mother. This was accomplished  by MI6. The  boys want their revenge and they shall have it. Kate, The Potato Head, is a slattern of the first degree. Willy wanted to infect the RF with her and her unacceptable family. Harry is doing the same with Meghan and her lot. I don't blame them. Their mother was treated so badly and used.

I wonder how Kate manages to live such a lie; knowing her past could come out at some point and certainly, she has to carry that knowledge with her. Nothing can convince me that she was holy and pure before meeting William and I am certain a lot of men would gladly come out and put a foot in her newly developed pristine image.

I cannot imagine that the underlying resentment and comments on the DM can remain on the bottom forever. At some point there'll be a trigger and it'll pour out in a deluge of resentment. As with the French and Russian revolutions, there's always a breaking point really.

If Charles had stayed with their mother and done the decent thing and dropped Camilla once he got engaged back in 1981, he would have had much more credibility. Charles treated an aristo wife like  trash and had the kids with her and quickly ditched her. He cannot really recover from that although he uses Penny Junor to trash the late ex wife and try to  make Camilla a saint. Very obvious spin.

Charles was not in any position to tell the boys who to see or marry considering what he did himself. IMO anyway.

thing is, Windsor men do not think of themselves as princes, but as normal people who deserve normal relationships and shouldn't have to bother with someone who actually has her act together and little regrettable baggage. They don't think like normal men however, since most normal men do not marry their mistresses, especially if they're ambitious and want to either move up in the world or maintain all that they already have. Most normal men would have pushed back against pressure to get married, broken it off, and told her to bug out of his life for good. Anyone like Kate, with her shadiness, would have been dumped and kept out, not taken back.

Avoiding the palace traditions and gatherings, mouthing off to senior courtiers, getting her family invited to go on the Jubilee float during HM's diamond jubilee, all the other ways she's mooched and done so little. She has such good luck on her side.

I find it ironical that Kate was supposed to be this academic superstar, who would bring in brains to the BRF, but has been determined to establish herself as much of an airhead as possible. She's asked stupid questions, made asinine speeches, clearly determined to know as little about the wider world as possible, and in her latest speech, promoted the idea that young teens should be groomed to be mothers and fathers at a young age. If Princess Di had said something like this at the start of her marriage, I would understand, but Kate is in her mid-thirties and would NEVER have married William if she had married at age nineteen or even in her twenties. Kate should be the last person on EARTH to promote early marriage and I am fed up with her airs and graces of her being some gentrified ingenue who has never sipped alcohol, much less gotten drunk. She has no business suggesting that young people think only of raising children since that is dangerous in a world where divorce is common.

I get fed up with her moral outrages and as a university graduate, she should be able to behave well and adhere to a work schedule. She has no business being so irresponsible and unknowing and act as if she didn't do dirt to get to William, much less get him into bed, keep him there, and get that ring. I do think that William surprise the palace mainly since I wager HM told him that Kate wasn't suitable or up to the job. It's galling how she is so determined to MAKE herself everyone's responsibility and demand that everyone coddle her and make them fight her battles. It goes to know that sometimes university can hamper a young adult's growth considerably especially since many young women go there to find a man to take care of them. Back on topic, this a woman who boozed it up during her twenties and partied hard and this is someone who can't handle making a simple speech?

It is indeed a bit hilarious and ironic that "the most educated person to marry in/ "royal"/ Windsor" has turnt out to be as dumb as a bunch of rocks and basically have the same intellectual capabilities as the rest of that family - namely none. (remarks on how Liz isn't the smartest have followed her from a young age until she was older and I think that only stopped when she became so old, she was too much of a "granny figure" when everything that an old person does is "old people cute" and intelligence isn't so sharply expected/ looked for by others, hope you know what and how I mean it - in many ways I'd say she is sharp, though not "classically" intelligent)

On top of that an actress is so far said to be well-spoken and better spoken than Kate ever was.

Actors are generally seen as dumb, but many are (or at least seem) very well spoken and intelligent, due to the tonnes of material they read and character studies they do. Anyways... :sigh:

Amazing how ten years of being a beck/call girl and drunken party girl have been determinedly erased as if it never happened; the shameless dolt clearly has been cleaned up by the palace PR (at hefty expense no doubt) and I am certain that this is why Kate is so determinedly prim and proper and wears flouncy laces and ruffles. Throw in promoting early marriage/parenting and this is what she's determined to cover up. Thankfully we live in a digital age where it can't be easily erased.

I don't think Kate thought she would have to wait a decade to get that ring and didn't anticipate having to go out and get drunk at clubs on a regular basis. I also don't think she anticipated being called "Waity Katie" and struggle to get invited to places and didn't think her family would come under such scrutiny.

All of the commentary and so called 'documentaries' are nothing more than well crafted propaganda; it is interesting in this day and age when you can see both sides. With Diana and Fergie, you only knew what the press wanted the public to know. Now we can honestly see that these commentators are trying to keep a false narrative going and want to desperately hold on to the golden prince myth and that this couple is a power couple. the myth of Kate being pure as a nun and how Kate graduated from Marlborough well groomed enough to mingle with the aristocracy, as if that in itself is enough. As if the only purpose of uni is to groom young ladies, like in finishing school. I think the only reason Kate didn't get sent to a finishing school is because her family knew that Kate wouldn't be married off to William after she came back.

For the life of me, I wish universities based admittance on more than academic grades; there should be a requirement that each potential student show a work history that can be independently verified and financial assistance should be based on whether or not a student has proven they can be trusted to actually use their degree. It would cut down on the slackers and cut down on those who go only to get a degree to find a mate. It'll also cut down on people who think that a degree entitles them to a high position. Quite honestly, I never did see the point of university for young people who are able bodied enough to learn a trade and enter the workforce. Frankly, Kate's most recent promotion of young parenting sounds like she's projecting her own preference, that she would have married William while younger.

I do believe that deep down, Kate dreamed of being the kind of girl like Princess Diana was at nineteen; wealthy, titled, eligible, accepted by the RF in her own right, and not in need of an actual career that she would have to earn a living at. I also think her determined idiocy is an attempt to come off as an adorable ingenue, like Diana was. It fits with her virginal narrative and fits well into her own subconscious need to erase her party filled past.

'Kate will be relieved': Jennie Bond reveals why the pregnant Duchess is happy for Meghan to take the spotlight - after enduring years of scrutiny

Really dumb. Waity will always be scrutinized because she’s the future queen. MM isn’t married in, and hopefully never will be, so who cares if she’s getting criticized now. Waity’s not fit for purpose still although she’s improved a bit since C. Quinn’s appointment.

Yes! I'm sure Carole resents it too - it must have cost the Midds a fortune to maintain Kate and Pippa's party girl lifestyles. Probably funded by UG.

I dislike how she's putting on virginal airs, as if not working makes her more of a lady than those who do earn a living. Kate has gall thinking that everything she does is okay, just because she's never done a day's hard work.

I wonder if Carole instilled a loathing of work in Kate and Pippa; Kate clearly didn't want to work, but put up a front of being a cloistered ingenue during those ten years and it's not like Carole (I think) enjoyed working as a flight attendant. Carole has always struck me as someone who resented waiting on the wealthy members of first class and disliked waiting on those on the rest of the plane, feeling like dirt, despite the fact that honest work is honest work and nothing to be ashamed of. Kate's mistreatment of people who have waited on her and the nastiness towards the other aristo girls could come from Kate's perception that the aristos have it easy, despite the fact that aristos are not raised with kid gloves and they do not all have huge bank accounts. I understand that resentment, I admit to feeling resentment towards others and I empathize with Kate in the area of wanting to belong to a seemingly carefree circle and never truly belonging. We've all been there. It's not like Kate is the only one who has been excluded. I dislike her however for first deliberately maligning the aristo set and then thinking that she deserves full acceptance behind closed doors and as if her jerky behavior towards the Yorkies is supposed to be forgive and forgotten.

She did seem happy at first, along with her family, but thing is, it's clear that even William doesn't accept her anymore. He's jet setting without her, humiliating her all over again and the aristos don't have her around and it's clear her family is impatient for a title of their own. She's being rejected and eaten alive by her family. I don't think she liked seeing William dance at a club while she's stuck at home and seeing him with other women, even worse. She's so beyond redemption and even if Meg cleans up Kate's rep for a while, it won't last.

The problem with the whole concept of the monarchy, to me, is that unless you have a strong moral compass, have been raised in the environment for generations along with a devotion to duty, everyone is susceptible to inner corruption.  Kate saw the perks like so many others from the outside but had non existent upbringing to prepare her for the denial and duty part.

It is the rare individual who can live in that rarefied air and keep their integrity, sense of purpose, modesty and understanding of public servitude.  Very rare indeed.

It's a really screwy way to live and maintain any sense of what the real world is like for the other 99.99999% of the population.  They are the truly visible 1 per centers but with an even worse add-on because they got there by birth or marriage, not through personal industry.

So, they all owe a ton to the public and I wonder when Kate is going to get the message, if ever.  She should, like all of them, be working every single day of the work week.  Other pregnant women do who don't have someone driving them to work and opening car doors and have protection and cooks, maids, nannies, butlers, etc.

Kate will never realize that she owes anyone anything, in fact she has as strong a sense of personal entitlement as any one born into the firm. she will never get it that she didn't get there by merit, in fact such things as purpose, modesty and understanding of anything but her own conceited imaginings are beyond her infantile capabilities. she's a self made marie Antoinette with nothing to offer. work is beneath her, and I just bet it eats her alive to have to go out and condescend to the public when all she really wants is to have her feet kissed by the poor fools who waste their time catering to her. I wish they could see what she really thinks of them...that they are good for nothing but worshiping her, the great waity, god's gift to the common wealth.
William is no better....when he led kate onto the balcony after their wedding I do believe the petulant arrogant bald headed dunce said to her "Your Subjects"...indeed that's how they see us....as their lowly subjects good for nothing but grovelling and being waved at.

We must not idolize people, people are failures, they can not stand idolatry, they are dust ...

I am sorry to say that it is my own personal opinion that she does not love bill medd, or he her.  They look at one another as though they are dirt, thei body language when together is positively arctic. They try to play a good act, but generally fail miserably, her eyes are stone cold and hard.  Neither of them are that bothered about the sprogs, they are bascially pr for when things go wrong, the list is endless.  I am sorry to say, from what I can see, there is not love lost between those two, just look at the face on bill medd, he doesn´t want to be anywhere with her, already said not keen on sprog 3.  I have come to the conclusion, taking many things into account, that they do not live together, and haven´t for a good while now.  He is ready for the off as soon as engagements are over.  It is a public charade they are playing, trying to fool the public into thinking everything in the garden is rosy, when in fact that garden is so barren the weeds probably don´t even grow.  One day that charade will not work at all, it appears to be going that way.  The looks they give one another, so unpleasant and cold.  If they stay together IMO it will continue with seperate homes and seperate lives, with this scam of a charade to try and fool the public, which is rapidly failing these days.

Duchess of Cambridge's exes revealed - there are more than you'd expect and she definitely has a type
It's hard to remember now, but there was a time when Kate Middleton and Prince William weren't romantically involved.

Even before their wedding seven years ago, Kate was a fixture in the public eye, popping in and out of Mahiki, shopping on the King's Road and being spotted skiing with William and their aristo chums.


The couple dated for 10 years prior to getting engaged, and even squeezed in one break-up.

While we know William had ex girlfriends , little is known about Kate's romantic history. But, believe it or not, she does have one...

She and Rupert didn't break up until December 2003. That was longer than "just under a year". W&K were both dating other people when they started boinking. First public appearance was in early 2004 (ski trip) and they had just begun dating. They also had more than one breakup... lots of on again/off again. Summer 2004 when PW was trying to pursue Isabella, Bonfire Night when PW cheated (2005?), and another time when a man was caught sneaking out of Kate's flat in the wee hours of the morning. The most publicized of course was March/April 2007 to June/July 2007 but that wasn't the only one, that was just the last one.

^ I don't even think that was the last one, I think (based on what I read) they had at least one more breakup after that. At some point in 2010 they were broken up, which is supposedly why them attending a wedding together and then being officially engaged a short while later was a huge shock to their friends and circle.
And yeah, some of the guys she was with after she had started "dating" Will, namely during their breakups and also to make Will jealous. Seems to have worked like a charm.

Exactly this. As I said in the other thread, the Medds & Waity look good compared to Murkles and her ilk, the comments à la "the Midds/ Waity at least.." etc speak volumes. When Waity and the Midds appear to look good, then you know things are going horribly wrong. The bar was so crazy low with the "laziest woman in England" Camz, was lowered to the impossible with Waity (any day she doesn't flash, gurn or wears spray on jeggings is a win!!) and now the bar has been lowered even further, I think we are now in the negatives of the scale. Nuts. :-

After those wardrobe malfunctions and her going to the racy parties, I don't see Kate as demure.

I don't care who else comes into the family it will never make me change my opinion of Kate (laziness, etc).

I don't think MEghan or anybody else in the family would make the Middletons and Kate look good to me. The bad part of the criticism of MEghan in the DM comments is the nauseating sycophantic remarks about Kate.  I can't read them at meal times.  The worst comments are that she is so perfect and she and William make beautiful babies together and she is so beautiful and an asset to the royal family.  And some express outrage when others call Kate "workshy" and rewrite history making it sound that Kate DID found that baby clothes line but lost money on it (the line never existed really), and she worked steadily (GMAB) until she married William.  They try to change her past and do convince the more naive that she worked hard.

Like I said, we all know Kate stalked William, is lazy, never bothered to properly work before her marriage, flashed us all her bits  :ick:, never bothers to construct decent speeches when she goes and does the littlest effort as patron of some charities, etc. Still, reading all the rumours about Meghan makes me :nervous: at least Kate only pretends to be demure and tries to emulate Lady Diana, she doesn't go and on top of that pretend she's an intelligent, well spoken, articulate diplomat and the solution to social issues of racism and machism, etc like Meghan does.

Meghan has topless photos too, you can check it out in this link for a portuguese magazine, just scroll down and below a photo of Meghan in a grey coat, you'll see all her topless photos, here:

I think Carole appreciated what Uncle Gary did but it was indeed a scandal that he assaulted his wife. Carole grateful to him does not alleviate the vile thing Gary did. IMO

I think Carole wants a grand match for her son which he probably won't get.

They have no room to laugh when they were and still are like the Markles.
And they ares still not accepted into the aristocracy.
No one wanted to marry Pippa, no one wanted to marry Kate, no one wants to marry James, and no one wants to marry Carol...
William doesn't want to help Kates siblings to set them up with a man & woman with a titled background and he's not going to help Carol too, to get into the aristocracy.

Kate Middleton Spotted Out with Prince Louis and Princess Charlotte by Katie Nicholl

Just days before the royal wedding will mark her first official public appearance since giving birth, the duchess took a stroll in Kensington Gardens near her home.

Anyone wondering how Kate Middleton is doing in the run-up to the royal wedding should have found themselves taking a walk in Kensington Park Gardens on Tuesday afternoon, where the new mother was walking baby Prince Louis in an old-fashioned pram, Princess Charlotte alongside her, and wearing what appeared to be a dress she’s worn before.

Wearing a pretty gingham brown sundress and sensible pumps, Kate was hiding behind a pair of large black designer shades and hadn’t had her signature blow-dry, which might have kept her from being noticed by either the public or the paparazzi, who were nowhere in sight. Accompanied by the family’s nanny, Maria Borrallo, and three protection officers, the family was enjoying the spring sunshine so much little Charlotte didn’t want to go home. As Kate left the park, Charlotte tried to walk in the other direction. “No come this way Charlotte,” Kate instructed and the little princess did as she was told.

I wonder if people take photos on their phones, but don't necessarily know how to get them to the press? You would assume the average person walking around on the street might not even know how to sell images to the papers. Plus, the quickly shot photos might be blurry/at bad angles, so you might not even be able to tell if it's WK or just a pedestrian.

That or it is something the Midds asked Katie N to put out there. "Doting mom and well mannered child" and all that. But I'm sure they don't want pics of her in mags just yet. They are most likely enjoying the Markle mess and wouldn't want to interfere with that lol

This way they can have the "big reveal" Saturday and everyone can oooh and aah at Kate.

Here's a pic from a German (?) paper on the VF article and K's walk with C&L

Seems she wore the Seraphine dress she wore for George's 1st photos.
Also the pram isn't as "old fashioned" as I thought it would be, thought she might've been pushing that old contraption like at C's christening.
It's a pretty normal pram, only not that overly skinny minimalistic stuff you see most of the time.

Kate reveals how 'simple moments' spent playing outside with George and Charlotte are what she cherishes most, in a heartfelt letter of support for 'remarkable' children's hospices

    The Duchess of Cambridge has written a letter in support of children's hospices
    Offered insight into how she treasures 'simple family moments' with her children
    Kate, 36, has been a patron of East Anglia's Children's Hospices since 2012
    She gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis of Cambridge, a month ago

Yeah, Kate is now having a high thanks to Meggles in public opinion, but soon the dust will settle and the positive coverage on Meggles will end and people will stop defending Katiekins, the scales will be off and both women will be seen and judged for who they are (like before the wedding).

Barring some explosive thing like being caught in bed with Trump, I don't see how Kate is going to be anything but in the sweet seat from here on out.  At some point, she will be the Princess of Wales and highly PR'd and protected.  If MM is even slightly annoying, which she will be, Kate will only be lauded and praised by comparison.  She can't lose.

I think Camilla acted like the donkey. Meghan was used for C and C promotion and so was Harry. There is still cynicism about Kate on the DM comments and the ones that praise her sound like they were faxed in.

Kate will never be an English rose. She is a chronic flasher. She always had her man hands on her overused vage in numerous photos. She has her hands up Charlotte's skirts all the time. She was a yacht girl and participated in the notorious Killing Kittens Club. She was Willy Boy's constant mattress all throughout St. Andrew's. She is fake and unfriendly. She has no girl friends other than her boss The Viper and Flat Face Pippa. This in itself is very telling. No girl friends. What does that tell you? I am looking forward eagerly to this Middleton tell all book. I am tired of the RF slapping D Notices on everything about this vile and distasteful low rent family.

    She finished off her look with a navy tote bag and shades, while wearing hair up

I expect now that Megs is getting training and hopefully will be hidden for some time, we'll see more articles like this from media portraying Kate as a hands-on-mum who understands her role within the royal family and is being concious of austerity that the nation's going through, hence her wearing an old dress to the wedding and an inexpensive dress here.
Goerge never seems to be happy. For a child I find that a bit odd.

^ Plus, which is the real issue, it's illegal to forbid people (incl professionals - paps) to take pics in the public sphere.

Which is why, when the press is p*ssed off enough, they do publish the odd pap shots - they respect the deal they have with the Cambs (for which the press has drawn an incredibly short straw), but when shyte hits the fan they publish as they know the Cambs can't do anything about it (eg when Waity was supposed to guest edit the Huff Post and they even set up office at KP and she was not only late, but stayed mere 50min and went shopping afterwards).

I don't exclude at all also that the Cambs PR is behind this, as Waity has had an influx of supporters in the wake of Murky entering the family, pretty smart to use the opportunity for their own PR. They need it, to say the least.

Royals go raunchy! Netflix gaffe leaves the internet in stitches as it makes a royal documentary about the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge look VERY rude
Quote
One viewer was forced to do a double take while scrolling through the streaming site when they spotted a show about the royals aligned with a thumbnail from a series about prostitutes.
The result was an optical illusion that made it looks as if the Duchess of Cambridge was wearing raunchy black underwear and stockings while kissing Prince William on their wedding.
In this case, a programme called The Royals, which is about the British monarchy, sat on top of Escorts, a series about high-class sex workers.
The Royals' thumbnail was a picture of Kate and Prince William sharing a kiss on their wedding day back in 2011, while the picture for Escorts showed a scantily clad woman holding a Champagne bottle.
When the pictures lined up it looked like the underwear-clad woman was actually Kate's bottom half.

No. It's just KM has either gained weight (most likely on Ma's bark) and stuffed her bra again for unknown reasons  :P :laugh: or the pic is photo shopped. I suppose the real name of the person who took the pic can reveal a lot here. Personally, I believe KM looks different from her normal self because she is trying to be someone else entirely to emotionally blackmail PW into keeping her in his life and so it confuses people.

I think it's Kate (and Charlotte.) Kate put on a bit of weight during this last pregnancy and hasn't gone back to her usual gauntness yet. She might be breast feeding which accounts for the boobs, and didn't Botox herself up, so she looks forty five instead of 36. But I'd swear it's her.

I was being serious. It was when William was at Anglesey and being interviewed about working there.

And there was some consternation, on this website, that it wasn't actually Bill, but a lookalike.

I can't seem to find it anywhere. So if they've got a lookalike for Bill, why not Kate?

The difference in G's appearance is due to his hair being its natural wavy self, and it looks darker (light affects but also because it's a different texture than when they style it). Could appear to be a different kid, but that's imo just because he's differently made up. It's clearly Char and it's also clearly Kate, besides, why would C accompany K & G lookalikes or K&C be with a G lookalike? Makes no sense. Also the Cambs have been before at the very same show with friends & kids in tow. And whilst they are all hidden away, we've still got the odd pap shot of them over the years, not that outlandish, so why would they have now lookalikes? With the real C?

And whilst I'm at it, sugars claiming the dress G as Little Lord Fauntleroy so he isn't as recognizeable in real life is utter bollocks, Bill & Haz Wales were much higher profile kids and they weren't "in disguise" and also C is in public and private made up the same way. Why they torture G with the ridiculous dressing is beyond me (my main objective are the shorts, which are sometimes so small they look like they're eating him up).

And Kate looks bigger because she IS bigger, as evident in the stroll in the park in that German mag, followed by the wedding, and I'll bet this weekend.

Revealed: How the svelte Duchess of Cambridge lost her baby weight in just SEVEN weeks after giving birth to Prince Louis (and it's all down to good genes)

    Duchess of Cambridge, 36, was spotted at Beaufort Polo Club in Gloucestershire
    Svelte new mother wore fitted Zara dress with belt that accentuated slim waist
    Expert says some women snap back if they're luck enough to have good genes
    Admitted it's harder to lose weight with each subsequent pregnancy 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5828941/Duchess-Cambridge-lost-baby-weight-just-SEVEN-weeks.html

bs. It's because the woman starves herself and excersizes like a hound.

At this point she's still looking good & healthy. Hope she doesn't drop any more weight. One can hope..

Since Meggles has come on the scene Waity is benefiting from loads of good publicity which she is cashing in on (by taking the kids out and being relaxed about photographs with them, wearing very queenly outfits to official events etc). But let's not forget what she did to snag the ring.

One of the magazines I saw on the newsstand today (In Style) said Kate is pregnant again and she wants a sister for Charlotte. William is said to want 5 children but Kate wants 4. and the topper: Kate is angry at William for working and leaving her to take care of the babies. Leaving out the nannies on call.

I thought William wanted two kids but had to be talked into a third. And now he wants five?!

Regarding a sister for Charlotte, each pregnancy is 50/50. Charlotte could get a sister, but she might also get a brother (like Princess Anne has an older brother and two younger brothers). Anyway, I don't think Kate is pregnant at the moment.

I'm surprised at this from InStyle, this whole story reads like the classic bs "magazine" that features heavily on royals (as well as some celebs), makes up constant twin pregnancies for all royal women as well as "heartbreak for XY" "scandal rocks the XY palace!", has the TV programme for the next 2 weeks and isn't bought by anyone under the age of ca 65.

Yeah Bill wanted 2 and leaks straight after marriage that Katiekins wanted 3 "just like her mother". I was staunchly of the opinion that no 3rd would come along, egg on my face, but seriously, no way is a 4th coming. Though there were stories that K is aiming at 4 "like Liz". I better not be too staunch.

Anyway, that story is pure bs and very disappointing for InStyle (not the biggest credentials here, but still). She just gave birth, how could she be already pregnant and with them knowing? Granted she always announces as soon as the 2nd line appears on the pregnancy stick, but still utter bollocks that story, imo not worth discussing.

'She was a complete doll': Andre Agassi opens up about bonding with the 'incredibly pleasant' Duchess of Cambridge at Wimbledon
Andre Agassi has opened up about bonding with the Duchess of Cambridge at Wimbledon and confirmed what royal fans have long suspected about Kate's sweet nature. 
'She was a complete doll,' the former tennis champion, 48, told Hello! 'I really thought she was incredibly pleasant.'
The royal and the former world number one met at the tournament in 2012 when he and his wife Steffi Graf were seated in the Royal Box beside Kate and William.
'She was lovely. We didn't chat a whole lot but she was lovely. I will not say anything else, because I don't know what offends people here or not.'
The potential absence of Kate, has led royal watchers to pleading with the Duchess to make and appearance before Wimbledon ends on July 15.
Declaring themselves officially on 'Kate watch', one fan even said they were hoping to see a 'Cambridge-Sussex double date'.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5920759/Andre-Agassi-opens-bonding-Duchess-Cambridge-Wimbledon.html
Why wouldn't she be pleasant?such as Wi She lives a life of leisure and attends prestigious events and gets the best seats without worrying about navigating traffic and the crowds or cost of a ticket and gets to meet the great players tht the average person could only dream about.  :bored:

Kate Middleton Has a Massive Scar on Her Face and the Story Behind It Is Shrouded in Secrecy
So, what's the deal? As In Style notes, Kate's three-inch scar was actually first noticed by people almost a decade ago, when everyone mistook it for hair extensions. Kensington Palace ended up having to release a statement at the time, saying "The scar is related to a childhood operation."
The nature of Kate's operation remains unknown to this day, which—fair enough! Would you want your entire medical history exposed to the public?  :sigh: Probably not. That said, if you take a look at Kate's more recent photos, you can see she's taken to styling her hair in a way that almost-always covers her scar when she wears it up.
It goes without saying that Kate looks amazing with and without her scar showing, because she looks amazing all the time, the end. ???
https://www.cosmopolitan.com/entertainment/a22819953/kate-middleton-scar/
Why's this being brought up again now?  :dontknow:  She's a public figure who represents the UK when she's overseas so her medical history should e public knowledge if it effects her position. Clearly the way she acts at times indicates that something's off about her, namely being lazy and ne dientional as she doesn't seem interested in anything outside of Wills.  :cookie:

That scar is in a very strange position on Kate's head if it's not anything to do with hair extensions! And if she was in hospital as a child it's strange that no-one in her home village can remember her having an accident and being in hospital. If they did they never said anything to any of Kate's biographers. Was she walloped with a golf club like William all those years ago, or did she have brain cell surgery, lol. Personally, I think the scar is the result of overly enthusiastic hair weaves, maybe glued in, in her early twenties, and nothing more serious than that.

It was reported that they were there.  They reportedly visited the home of the llate Queen Mother, the Castle of Mey.  It seems HM is seeing her family, the Yorks, now the Cambrldge couple, Princess Anne.and the Wessex family.Time will tell what's happening.

I'm sure Kate would rather be hanging out at mom's or anywhere else but for once in her life she probably ran up there ahead of her dolt husband. Because carol said she would look like a perfect duchess if she showed up before Murky - especially if she left her expensive stylish clothes at home and wore something from the over 50+ old fogey line of clothing. Sorry but the timing of the visit and the look on her face despite the makeup makes me think everyone is scheming.

This might be me, but if HM is holding conferences at a castle she doesn't usually use, I am certain that something is going down behind closed doors.

As for hanging around her mother, I wonder how Kate feels, knowing that her family enjoys plusher accommodations because of what she did with William all those years. All those years of monkeying around in the bedroom and Kate is still expected to work at getting more perks for her family. Kate is only a guest at that house, not a full time family member and Kate still has to return to that chill, empty palace with a hostile range of courtiers. Her place isn't in her family's home, but they have that posh estate because of her willingness to degrade herself.

I don't think there's much of a chance at a divorce at this point, but I do believe that her marriage is dead, romantically, spiritually, and emotionally. There's a reason she's withering on the vine and William clearly isn't around much anymore with her.

I'm amazed at how Kate has clearly trapped herself by her own PR; she hyped herself as simple and home minded, but you can tell she is DYING to live a more cosmopolitan life. Supposedly she wanted to go to Italian fashion shows, film festivals, and other events, but instead she's living in dreary castles and palaces.

What's with all of the articles about KM lately? From the head scar/hair extensions story to Charlotte taking up riding with HMQ herself, to Charlotte living the Fairy Tale life that most people, let alone children, can only dream of to George participating in his very first grouse hunt at Balmoral with the Queen....

The articles all seem to be trying to con the people into believing KM is Saint Kate the Great Mummy who provides such a wonderful, lavish lifestyle for "her" children so how dare anyone try to take it away from them!!! It's about KM and "HER" three little children and how dare someone try to come in and take it away from her!!! How can anyone be so mean?!!?  I read that Prince William and other members of the BRF are just secondary characters mentioned in the articles because they have to be and like it's HER life and they're just in it.

It seems KM and her mummy are on the defensive and putting out stories to try to protect themselves from something and or someone they can't control.

I believe the Medds may have been told something that distresses them. I get a Princess Diana v Prince Charles and Camilla vibe. And a MO board vibe.

I hope November brings interesting news!

HM is probably planning on big changes - how did they announce PP retirement

They announced it by calling all staff and royal households together and turning it into a big drama and process; I do not know if whether or not there might be upcoming announcements that declare things one way or another, but I do sense that something is up. Maybe another 'pregnancy' announcement or something else. Kate is sitting next to HM, but to me that isn't too big of a deal. I am certain that there might be something up, but it could be a fluffy change that is being announced. I am certain that we'll find out in a few months and for the meantime I am certain that I know I'm going to just chill.

The articles all seem to be trying to con the people into believing KM is Saint Kate the Great Mummy who provides such a wonderful, lavish lifestyle for "her" children so how dare anyone try to take it away from them!!! It's about KM and "HER" three little children and how dare someone try to come in and take it away from her!!!

I believe the Medds may have been told something that distresses them. I get a Princess Diana v Prince Charles and Camilla vibe. And a MO board vibe.

I dare to say that something is going on since it's clear that when Kate goes into victim mode, it means something is going down. Remember how the breakup happened and Kate labeled herself a victim? How the French nude scandal had her painted as a victim? Each time she gets into a right spot, she shrieks 'victim'!

^ I say KM has always known her days in the BRF were numbered and that she is being told, behind closed doors, by her backers and by PW etc that her number is coming up. ;) and when it does it will be more explosive than many here believed it would be. You will learn the Medds were even more vicious and disgusting than originally thought and that they never had any power at all and still don't. It is their backer, who hides behind them, who has the power and has kept them in the BRF against the wishes of PW and his family. I say this fact has happened numerous times in the past years but the backer has always managed to block innocents and keep KM going. Not so now. That cheating has stopped.

I say that when KM stalked PW and clung onto him, giving all other women death stares as was witnessed by Lady Victoria Hervey who mentioned it and laughed about it, KM was keeping her eyes out for one specific woman. An older woman she can't compete with.  ;)   MO

Kate and WIll's image is taking a hit IMO with George reported watching the adults shoot grouse. I thought the children had to be in their early teens to start hunting or watching hunting. Very disturbing.

Will and Kate want "normalcy" so much I think they will continue to release photos of the children very sparingly.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 26, 2018, 10:15:30 pm
I think at this point WK have lost complete touch with the public and now, just like the Russian RF, just can't seem to grasp the reality of the situation they're in. This 'normalcy,' BS is the one thing that has damaged their ability to hold together as a royal couple and they can't just keep shutting their titles out anymore. Clearly they don't have the ability to grasp that their subjects are not in a position to do anything to get a better life and it is their duty to be out and about TRYING to alleviate the pressure their people are under. Being royal is not nine to five, something they're compensated well for.

PR on the part of the Cambridges isn't going to help out; Harry has literally blown it all to pieces and I am certain that whatever is going on, it's not pretty. Remember, right before the announcement of the second 'pregnancy,' that WK were seen dining together in that restaurant? How it seemed that it was in fact they were having one last dinner before announcing the end of their marriage? Then the pregnancy announcement of their second kid ,that seemed to catch him off guard? It could well be that HM and Co. have put their foot down and told her that the marriage will be dissolved (by what means is as unknown) and now she has no choice.

^ I say KM has always known her days in the BRF were numbered and that she is being told, behind closed doors, by her backers and by PW etc that her number is coming up. ;) and when it does it will be more explosive than many here believed it would be.

I think William was so stupid to marry her in the first place and even give her time as an official member of the BRF. He could have dropped her, dealt with the bad press (mainly from the tabloids), done a round of tours and engagements and settled into his real life and moved on. He never owed her a ring or consideration for such a role.

The biggest con Kate played, was that the RF owed her anything; she managed to manipulate William into thinking that a tabloid columnist had a right to tell him how to live his life instead of listening to the courtiers and HM and his father. HM and Charles really dropped the ball and should have spent REAL time with him, getting him out of the pubs and nightclubs and making sure he fulfilled a certain amount of duties a day, no matter what and enforced boundaries against cohabiting. If they had spent time doing just that, Kate never would have become a royal duchess and never would have caused half the trouble to the dynasty.

Or she's lost her last illusions about royal life and her actual life as opposed to what the tabloids say; Prince Charming is just about completely bald, her crush Harry is married and no longer tagging along as part of a trio with her as the central female lead, she can't jet set on whim anymore and it's clear that HM is no longer letting her shirk Balmoral in favor of Mustique of living with her parents. No more coddling, no more 'breathing space,' and no more patience in general. I don't think HM has ever wanted her in the RF, but HM decided to give her a chance and Kate has run out of chances.

Post by: meememe on August 27, 2018, 01:28:41 am
I don't know of any 'age limit' but do know we have seen James at the Sandringham shoots some years ago now. The royals have always had the boys out at the shoots from about 5 or 6 years of age and they start shooting around 12 - 13 (William was 13 when he shot his first stag for instance).

William and Kate have always gone to Balmoral for a long weekend so nothing unusual there.

The Castle of Mey is used by Charles and Camilla for a week or so each year and the reports are that Harry and Meghan joined them this year but no photos to prove it one way or the other.

All members of the BRF visit Balmoral for a few days during the summer but some stay for longer - usually the Wessexes and Princess Anne and her family. The Yorks only go up the first weekend with Sarah and before Philip arrives - although usually one daughter goes up later as well and Eugenie hasn't been up there so far as I am aware but probably will go up with Jack during September.

Charles and Camilla usually spend most of August and September at Birkhall with a week or so at May. Camilla sometimes goes south to spend time with her own family and sometimes they join Charles and Camilla at Birkhall.

Bascially the Queen is at Balmoral from late July to early October with Philip joining her in mid-July after Andrew and Sarah have left. Charles and Camilla are usually at Birkhall for the same period. The rest of the family rotate in and out during the 10 weeks or so that the Queen is there staying for a few days up to a week. She also has to host the PM and the Scottish leader for a weekend.

The Queen's friends are also often invited for a few days and the Duke of Marlborough always goes up for the start of the grouse hunting season so he remembers to pay his annual rent for Blenheim (a replica flag captured at the Battle of Blenheim). The Duke of Wellington has the same annual rent for his home but delivers it on the anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo. The flags hang in the private chapel at Windsor (not St George's) where visitors to the castle can see them on visits.

In the past the royals would spend some of this summer cruising in the Britannia and would meet up with the Norwegian and/or Danish royals who were also cruising on their royal yachts. Now that the BRF don't hav e a royal yacht that doesn't happen so the family drops in, sees Mummy/Granny/Gan-Gan for a few days and leaves again. They tend to stay longer on their visit to Balmoral than they do when they go to Sandringham which is less than 24 hours for most of them.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 27, 2018, 03:25:17 am
I always thought the entire BRF was supposed to stay for a long time and bond, but now it's dissolving since the 'younger' royals prefer to jet set and 'do their own thing.' I do believe that it's a shame that WK are not setting an example of respect for HM and staying the entire time, but go figure, they are just too selfish. I mean really, is the entire tradition of spending time in Scotland going to end, this time breaking the flimsy bond that the BRF have with Scotland? It's not like any of the BRF have permanent residences there and spend more than just a few weeks out of the year there anyway. The BRF mainly prefers to live primarily in England and London, not bothering with any part of Ireland or Scotland or other Commonwealth countries. A real shame since Scotland has so much to offer. Mustique is more important to Kate and William, not maintaining ties to the lands of his ancestors.

I wonder if William is ever sober long enough to realize that he's throwing so much away that is priceless and he has no chance of getting those wasted years back. He has no idea that each time he shirks Balmoral, he's sending the message to the Scots that they are not a priority to him. Pity there since he clearly has the ability to get them to love him very easily. Kate also met and landed William there and it's a shame that she has no appreciation for the vast land, the good people, and the fact that it does tie in with her position. For the life of me I have no idea how on earth that Kate could have ever come across as down to earth and loving the countryside. She's always been lauded because of her middle class status, but all that went out the window after she got that ring on her finger.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: meememe on August 27, 2018, 06:53:34 am
Once the Queen's own children reached adulthood they spent less and less time in Scotland so this isn't something new for this generation. Charles and Diana would go somewhere in the sun together until the mid-80s when they effectively separated and Diana basically refused to go to Balmoral but as she hated the place they would only go for a week or so and then leave. By the mid-80s she was leaving after a week or so while Charles started to stay for longer.

Andrew also left after a week or so to holiday with his family - and that, to him, included Sarah who after 1992 was persona non grata as far as Philip and the Queen Mum were concerned. It has only been in more recent times when she has been allowed back - on the condition she is gone before Philip arrives so the Yorks stay for a day or so after Philip arrives and then leave.

Edward, as a single man, would also only be there for a week or so. Since being married and having children he takes them up for two or three weeks but they have to be back down south by next week as the children go back to school.

Other than the Queen and Philip the rest of the family also largely return to work at the beginning of September, which again means being in England rather than Scotland for everyone other than Charles and Camilla who will do a number of engagements in Scotland during September.

The idea that they 'bonded' over summers at Balmoral is largely a false idea as from the age of 18 onwards even the Queen's children weren't there for all that long.

Charles is committed to Scotland - note he goes there on Christmas Day after spending around 20 hours at Sandringham, regularly visits during the years, spends at least two weeks there around Easter, including Easter weekend itself and again is there for most of August and September. William and Harry both visit Charles when he is up there but Charles doesn't stay at Balmoral itself but at Birkhall.

For William and Harry though they know their mother hated the place and they associate it with the worst time of their lives so it is understandable if they aren't as committed to spending time there as earlier generations.

Diana went to Balmoral every year. She was even there with Fergie in 1992. She stopped going after the separation. Week or longer she still showed up there.

I think William and Harry like other vacation venues instead of Scotland. I doubt it's anything to do with the "bad years".


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on August 27, 2018, 02:22:21 pm
Scotland isn't supposed to be part of some vacation venue, it's part of their ancestry; This is how the royal court operates, it's not supposed to be just some vacation destination. Usually the Sovereign is accompanied by her courtiers and family and if HM wants to go to Balmoral and stay there, the BRF is supposed to go and attend to HM's wishes and wants. This is where Kate gets it wrong (as she always does) and William and Harry shouldn't be so cavalier; none of them (William/Harry/Kate/Meg) have more pressing things to attend to that they have no time for Balmoral. Kate is worse than Meg since Kate grew up in England and KNEW how the BRF operates. During the courtship she would scurry up to Scotland each time William asked her to and so she should be used to things, not jetting off to Mustique.

She really was a distraction in his life and it shows that William should have been pressed into doing duties instead of being allowed to play around during his uni years. I find it just deserts that she isn't living the cosmopolitan lifestyle that she hankers so much for. Clearly she is withering due to being miserable at having to even stay in England instead of going to Paris for shopping, trips to Italian fashion shows/society weddings, and skiing in Gstaad; or movie events in Los Angeles. Instead she's living in either the shires, visiting Mustique, and living a monotonous life in London.

Marry for money, earn every penny. Clearly she has no interest in charity work that would fill her time, which is a pity since that is why she ended up being paid by the UK. To do charity work and basically represent her country.

She doesn’t do charity work unless pressurised as she has got where she wants to and prefers glugging vino with Council Caro, smoking and watching endless box sets of TOWIE and such like.  Council Caro is allegedly a sight to behold barking orders at staff with her ciggie stuck permanently to her bottom lip and demanding that her iced Chablis be served on a tray at precisely 6 pm.

While the concept of creating a society inclusive of women in response to exclusive men's groups (what can I say?  I do love wine.) is cool and interesting... I find it very hard to believe she truly developed it on her own accord.  She may have been asked to participate by the actual creators, or to help here and there to jump start the society, but I do not believe for a second it was her idea, her energy, her coordination, or that she gives a damn about other women besides those in her immediate family.

I think, personally, that she did develop the society, just her kind of thing.  Lazy and connmiving she might be, but when she sets her sights on something she will go for it, especially if it got her into the crowd of bill medd.  IMO she is no shrinking, sweet little violet, never has been and never will be.  Not to forget that if it was for chasing bill medd council caro could have been pushing her along setting it up, giving her the bullets to fire to get it up and running.  Council caro has pushed her all along the way, that much is obvious, and if council caro dictates council cath will jump to it and do what she is being told.  I think she is scared of council caro.  If she was the quiet student with decorum, class and elegance,  had someone else set up the society she would not have joined it, too beneath her, and certainly not started it herself.  So yes, IMO, I can see her setting it up to chase bill medd, it is what she was trained to, snare him, and she would do that any way she could, as we know from through the years. She is no Snow White, quite the other end of the scale, in my opinion of her, and of many others as well.

What annoys me is that her big fans on the DM comment boards try to rewrite her history saying she had a full time job pre marriage and she was thrown into the deep end doing duties. Not true. She was sailing along on excuses early on before the babies and did little. I would not even  call her "job" at Jigsaw full time. I doubt she spent much time working at Party Pieces.

Scotland isn't supposed to be part of some vacation venue, it's part of their ancestry; This is how the royal court operates, it's not supposed to be just some vacation destination. Usually the Sovereign is accompanied by her courtiers and family and if HM wants to go to Balmoral and stay there, the BRF is supposed to go and attend to HM's wishes and wants. This is where Kate gets it wrong (as she always does) and William and Harry shouldn't be so cavalier; none of them (William/Harry/Kate/Meg) have more pressing things to attend to that they have no time for Balmoral. Kate is worse than Meg since Kate grew up in England and KNEW how the BRF operates. During the courtship she would scurry up to Scotland each time William asked her to and so she should be used to things, not jetting off to Mustique.

If this is the case why is it only Charles and Camilla who spend the summer there. All of the Queen's other children leave after a week or so - no different to the grandchildren. Princess Margaret - the Queen's own sister hardly ever went - preferring to go to Mustique.

The Queen is hardly ever accompanied by her family - they all have their own homes and lives. She invites them to visit if possible and is quite happy that they aren't there if they have other things they prefer to do. She realises that what she enjoys isn't necessarily the same as everyone else's. Her husband doesn't even stay the entire time anymore - arriving a week or more after she has moved into the castle.

Balmoral is her vacation home. That was what is was bought for - a place where the BRF could wind down. Queen Victoria took her children there as children but once they were adults most visited for a week or so, if they even bothered - no different to today. Again her Prince of Wales would stay for longer but George V always preferred Sandringham and would visit both his father and grandmother for a short period each year before returning to Sandringham.

It is no different to Sandringham - the extended family are there for about 24 hours over Christmas Eve to Christmas Day and then may visit again during the winter break but there is no expectation that they will be there for Christmas Day anymore.

All that is expected, now that the grandchildren are adults, is a week or so - no more.

It isn't even convenient for them all to be there at once as they don't fit. When William and Kate were there Edward and Sophie had to move into a different home and that meant one of the senior courtiers had to move into a lesser home as well. When William and Kate left they reversed the move and went back as they were. It is like Sandringham - now that William and his family are an Anmer, and I have heard Harry stays with them as well - freeing up room at the Big House for Christmas Eve night. The York's weren't there at that time so who knows where they would have been put along with Harry and Meghan if they had all been there at once.

I don't know of any 'age limit' but do know we have seen James at the Sandringham shoots some years ago now. The royals have always had the boys out at the shoots from about 5 or 6 years of age and they start shooting around 12 - 13 (William was 13 when he shot his first stag for instance).

William and Kate have always gone to Balmoral for a long weekend so nothing unusual there.


agree with you... and mia is even younger... but she appeared to be a outgoing, spirited little girl maybe it didnt affect her negatively... kate and william and kids already left balmoral? are they in mustique?

They went to Mustique for George's birthday and then to Balmoral. All the children will have left as school starts back this coming week for most schools so they all need to be at their homes until the half-term break.

Thank you for the compliment. Sometimes I wonder whether I fit in here but posts like this make me realise I do.

As for a photocall this week - maybe one for Charlotte's first day at nursery but i wouldn't expect one of George as this isn't his first year at school.

I would expect the next school photocall for George to be when he starts high school - where ever that will be.

Charlotte for nursery this year and school next year and then a few years wait for Louis starting nursery and the school and then George starting high school etc.

I would love to see more photos of the kids but don't expect to see any more and when we do they are against a wall or a stair - never interacting with things or people (other than the butterfly ones for George's first birthday and the ones through the window before the 2014 Australian tour).

It's a bit sad that George is rarely seen interacting with other kids. I'm not sure a toddler's ideal birthday destination would be a private island. Diana used to take William and Harry to Alton Towers.

But the prince was starting a new chapter as as Army officer with the Blues and Royals and was eager to avoid the mistake his parents had made by marrying too hastily.
William decided to celebrate the end of his relationship rather differently – with a trip to the Mahiki club in Central London. The news of their split was not yet public, but those around him had more than a clue of what was going on when he leaped on to a table, shouting ‘I’m free!’.
News of their split broke in public the following day.
By mid-May the couple were talking on the phone, by June Kate was spotted at a fancy dress party at William's barracks,
In August, the pair jetted off for a holiday in the Seychelles where William made a promise that a proposal would be forthcoming in the future.  :bored:

Marrying too hastily like his parents? It was  a courtship of a few months for his parents not years?

It leaves out Kate's campaign to win him back wearing short skirts and being seen worse for wear with other men at night clubs.

Did William really say he would propose then? I doubt it. It was a three year wait for that ring.

I doubt Meghan planted these stories it's part of Will and Kate's history and not everybody likes their lifestyle and laziness. These stories have circulated for years before Meghan came around and I recall vividly Kate's campaign where she'd show up at those clubs and the time she showed up as the naughty nurse in Will's barracks.

Self respecting women would not want a man back who brayed "I'm free" after he dumped her. Carole apparently advised her to go the media route.

William might not have married Kate right away, but I believe he settled into a serious relationship right away without getting to know her without sex involved.

It took her posing in lingerie to get his full attention and I do believe that it was made into something serious way too quickly, way too publicly, and thing is, he clearly just wanted her to get a life of her own, something she refused to do.

This so called romance doesn't face the fact that Kate was determined to become William's responsibility right away, putting her life in his hands and basically started making it clear that she was dependent on him to propose to her and take care of her for the rest of her life. Marriage pressure started right away, well before he was emotionally and psychologically equipped to think that kind of permanent life decision over. It's no wonder he shouted "I'm Free" to the entire planet when they broke up.

I understand why the DM is bringing this up, mainly since they have no new material to work with anymore since Kate does nothing for her country.

I don't think William promised anything, if he had, she would have ended up with that ring sooner; Windsor men don't hesitate and when they want to put a ring on it, they do ti quickly and get married quickly. William would have informed HM and Charles of his intentions and things would have proceeded briskly.

During the engagement, Kate was kept at arm's length, allegedly ordered OUT of Clarence House by Charles and didn't set foot in London until the day before her wedding. She wasn't in Clarence House until after the ceremony and even then it was clear that Charles and Camilla were not enthused. Neither was Harry or HM.

You know what always stuck in my mind?  The engagement interview when, naturally, Kate getting Diana's ring came up and PW didn't even know what kind of stone it was. 

It's all pantomime and I'm not convinced that he has a ton of brain cells working, either.  Kate, otoh, had the world's best stage mother, recognized the weakness and used it impeccably.

Kate always seems like a passive pawn in her own life which may be a perfect fit for the BRF's mentality.  Something's terribly inept and undereducated about those boys, tho.

How do you not research your dead mother's ring that you're giving to the woman you're going to marry?  Maybe it's from a life of placing no value on anything because it comes so easily.

But, Kate marches in step now.  What an empty and vapid life, really.

Post by: Kuei Fei on September 06, 2018, 04:45:40 pm
I think he was bantering, playing to the gallery. I do think he is absentminded though and failed to pay attention to a lot of the little giveaways that are BIG red flags; this happens to a lot of people and I do believe that William was not raised to take care of details himself and ended up missing the warning signs his friends saw.

I do believe that in Kate's manipulations, she knew that if she just became part of his routine/way of life, that she would be easily able to latch on and he would keep her around if only for the sake of familiarity and be part of his comfort zone. I should know, I ended up with a boyfriend using Kate's exact tactics, I didn't marry him though.

As for each prince, neither prince ended up being forced to move on beyond their mother's death and forced to get on with life. If William had been sent to Gordonstoun, I believe he would have handled life a lot better and would have been a better man and more effective prince and obedient to HM and Charles as their subject.

Kate wouldn't have been able to latch on and I am certain that she wouldn't have been able to get away with messing around. Kate only got in because William was being raised WELL below his actual abilities and he was allowed to shirk duties during the summers. There is no excuse for him to shirk appearances or court duties.

Kate I believe was far more experienced than William in relationships and this is why I believe she was able to manipulate her way in so successfully. Most her age do give death stares if they want other women to stay away from their man, but Kate's careful study of William takes it to a whole other level of worldly knowledge.

To be honest, I can't judge him for not seeing what we and so many others saw that pointed out Kate as bad news. The issue with abusers, is that they are SKILLED at concealing the big warning signs and they are SKILLED at explaining away the little things as little idiosyncrasies/eccentricities as part of the personalities.

I was absentminded at a young age and in high school I was also really open minded; as a result I was latched onto by a controlling boyfriend who was abusive. It is so hard to make that break since they do all they can to exhaust and disconcert you to keep you in a helpless state of mind.

Kate was famous for getting worked up over press coverage and she used that as a way to keep William too tired to argue against her, so he gave in. I do believe that her alleged trait of reveling in picking fights with him was a way to keep the drama going and maintain control. Classic traits, but hard to spot when in the relationship.

As for being a passive pawn, I disagree; during her campaign to get him back, she wasn't being passive at all, she was being assertive. There is no way she would have been in Westminster getting married if she hadn't made the effort to really get into his life and then into his bed. Contrary to any kind of fancified narrative, I am certain that Carole and HM were not at all arranging for Kate and William to marry. Kate was never a natural part of his set and neither would have run into the other if not for St. Andrews and Kate did supposedly decide on St. Andrews so she would be able to latch onto William.

If she had been genuinely passive, I am certain that she wouldn't have been able to get William back, she would have just faded away into oblivion.

Post by: sandy on September 06, 2018, 04:51:56 pm
Kate is definitely not passive. She did what she felt she had to do but I do think Carole was scheming for Kate to marry William hence inviting him for the cheese toasts and getting Kate and Will back together at a bonfire event.

Every week there would be coverage of newly "single" Kate in clubs wearing short skirts with other men and falling out of clubs to show Will what he was "missing." William was not making inroads to isabella and apparently fell for Kate's campaign and soon the "naughty nurse" Kate at Will's barracks got into the media.

I think Diana's ring should have gone to her first granddaughter (which would be Charlotte) instead of a fiancee of one of her sons).

The thing that bothers me is Kate sycophants calling her "hard working and classy" and rewriting history about her pre marriage employment

I meant that she’s passive now.  Now that she has everything she fought for, there is nothing left to work or strive for so she’s gone passive and slightly dead inside.  Lately, I see a go through the motions blankness about her that is more pronounced than earlier.

And I don’t think William paid any deep attention to the details of his mother’s ring.  People do things for him to such a high degree that he is rarely proactive.  Which, and it’s my point, allowed Kate to happen.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 06, 2018, 05:13:06 pm
I do think Kate fought hard for that ring since she knew that once she had it, she would be able to be as passive as possible and would be able to avoid having to take responsibility for the direction of her life. That is why a lot of women like her work so hard to find a man to support them; if Kate had had to make a living, she would have had to grow up and make things happen in her life. I am certain she is at a point where she does not want to do anything or be anything.

The irony is, that the things she does want to do (trips to fashion shows/launch an organic food line to rival Charles' Duchy brand) are things she is forbidden to do. She has done photographs, but those were derided and I am sure that the palace told her not to start a career in photography, meanwhile her idea of opening a charity boutique was kibosh and so she's basically up a creek. She doesn't want to do the things the palace needs her ot do, but she can't do what SHE wants to do.

She might in fact be dead inside since her dreams of being a fashion icon are dead, her dreams of taking on the world with that title are dead, and I am certain that she dies a little more inside each time she looks at the man she married who has become a bald dolt who is stingy with the credit card. This is a far cry from her dream of being the No.1 woman in the world who would outshine even Diana (because of her degree being there) and enabling her family to get a title and status for themselves.

Kind of reminds me of how Anne Boleyn ended up after she was married to Henry VIII and after a while (and a handful of miscarriages) she ended up a broken woman who had nothing but enemies and crushed dreams. I think William realizes that Kate isn't in fact his genuine soulmate and hates how she doens't pull her weight and perhaps even hates being married in general. Some life, a husband who hates her, her looks have faded, and she's clearly unwanted among the BRF.

It's a shame that it is this way, but it's something she should have faced during the courtship, that she wouldn't be welcomed, but only tolerated. The courtship is almost always a taste of what the marriage will be like. I wager her mother is now hounding her to find someone for James Middleton and now this is her latest chore. I wouldn't be her on a bet and it's not because of the scrutiny, but the fact that every dream she had of glory is dead and there is no getting out.

If she leaves him, the BRF will give her nothing, shred her rep, and the press will turn on her with a vengeance. William is not a generous man by all accounts and will likely leave her with a pittance and her entire lifestyle will be taken away. No decent man will want her as a wife and those who do want her will not be of the titled caliber. No one will want to hire her for anything and I am sure her parents will not allow her to move in with them even temporarily.

Just for the sake of conversation, I wonder how her post-divorce life would be like if she pursued such a thing.

'Too lowly!' Camilla ‘tried to BREAK UP Prince William and Kate’ claims BOMBSHELL book
CAMILLA once tried to break up Prince William and Kate because she did not believe the Duchess of Cambridge was suited for the Royal Family, a bombshell book has claimed.
Kate and William met while studying at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.
While the world fell in love with the then-Kate Middleton, one member of the Royal Family reportedly did not approve of the match.
Camilla, who became a member of the Royal Family when she married Prince Charles in 2005, allegedly tried to the couple to break up.
Camilla believed Kate was ”pretty, but rather dim" and "too lowly" to marry into the Royal Family, according to the book ‘Game of Crowns: Elizabeth, Camilla, Kate, and the Throne’ by Christopher Anderson.
Camilla is even said to have asked Prince Charles to convince William to end things with Kate.
After six years of being together, Kate and William briefly broke up in 2007 and the book claims Camilla at the time described the separation as "wise".
During an interview, following the announcement of their engagement, Prince William said: “We did split up for a bit.
“We were both very young, we were both at university, we were both finding ourselves as such, being different characters.
“We were both trying to find our own way with a bit of space, we were growing up and then it worked out for the better.”
Kate also shared her view on the split, adding: “I think I at the time wasn't very happy about it, but actually it made me a stronger person.
“You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn't realised, or I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you are younger.
“And I really valued that time for me as well although I didn't think it at the time, looking back on it.”
While the pair were separated Kate visited Ireland with her mother Carole Middleton.
Although the royal couple have never said what the reasons for the split were, pressure from the paparazzi has been tipped as being a big source of tension for Kate and William.
The Duke and Duchess pf Cambridge were thought to have broken up in March 2007 but they were back together by October of the same year.
The break up clearly did not affect their deep relationship as Kate and William married in Westminster Abbey in April 2011.
They also have three children together: Prince George, aged five, Princess Charlotte, aged three, and baby Prince Louis.
A Clarence House spokesman said they would not comment on the book’s claims.

Royal insiders have rubbished reports that the Duchess of Cornwall schemed to break up Kate and William before they got married as she didn't approve of Kate's 'lowly' background.
Earlier this week, an excerpt from the 2016 book Game of Crowns: Elizabeth, Camilla, Kate, and the Throne by royal biographer Christopher Anderson resurfaced online, including claims that the Duchess thought William's girlfriend was 'pretty, but rather dim'.
However, royal sources have denied the claims to Femail, saying there's no truth in them and that Kate and Camilla enjoy a warm relationship.
Grant Harrold, who was butler to Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall between 2005 and 2011, and still lives on the Prince of Wales' Gloucestershire estate, Highgrove, said: 'This sounds like a fake story with no basis of truth.
'The family I know are very close and all have a good relationship with each other as we have seen in all the joint engagements they do on a regular basis.'
Indeed, Kate and Camilla have never seemed anything other than friendly when pictured together at royal engagements.  
However, the 2016 book claimed that the Duchess looked down on Kate and didn't think she was good enough for Prince William.  
'Beneath it all', stated a friend of Parker Bowles in the book, 'Camilla is a snob. Her family has always moved in royal circles.
'It's simply second nature to her. She simply felt Kate and the Middletons were too lowly to marry into the Royal Family'.
The author also claimed that Camilla was afraid of the younger woman stealing the limelight after waiting more than thirty years to be accepted by the Queen.
'She wasn't going to have someone just march in and sort of drag the whole thing down,' Andersen wrote.
He claimed that Camilla, now 70, had come to love the limelight after all those years of being the other woman who met her lover secretly in the shadows.
Kate was naturally pretty, young, everything Camilla wasn't and she became consumed with jealousy, said the author.
'It only makes sense that Camilla resented being eclipsed by a beautiful young woman like Kate Middleton,' he claimed.
'Maybe she felt threatened by Kate, or perhaps more by William and Kate as a team'.
It's not the first time that rumours about a rift between the Charles and Camila and the Cambridges have emerged.
In Tom Bower's book, REBEL Prince: The Power, Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles published earlier this year, the author claims that the heir to the throne felt he was being overshadowed by Kate's family.
'After his own marriage, William chose to retreat with Kate to Norfolk, where they could preserve their privacy. They also preferred to spend Christmas with her parents rather than at Sandringham with the other royals,' the author wrote.
'The distance between Highgrove and Norfolk isolated the Prince from his grandchildren, and allowed Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton, to take charge.
'Charles began to fear that he was being usurped by the Middletons, and several of the Queen’s courtiers picked up on this. As a consequence, they decided to ignore Carole Middleton on social occasions.

^because they’ve brought in someone lowly so Waity will look classy in comparison.
She was such a mess an an obvious mistake when reports kept coming out about her taking her time to search for patronages and setting her own schedule. Then when she finally did find a few patronage’s, she barely managed to support them. The joke was when she was made a patron of the the National Portrait Gallery. I wonder if Catherine Quinn’s still around or now working with only Wills as he’s the ultimate one that’s important enough in the scheme of things to require professional help.

Thing is, that no one better than Kate would want it marry Harry and be required by protocol to defer to Kate. Kate is someone who has done not a lick of honest work and is a shoddy duchess and pointless when ti comes to helping her charities. Anyone who marries Harry would have to submit to Kate as required by protocol.

William has the real influence not Kate. She will be consort not monarch. And she is not required to be curtsied to if William is not there. Meghan or no Meghan my opinion of Kate has not changed and its not a very good opinion. She has not changed. And I doubt ever will. I know some fans of hers on the comments section think once she's princess of wales she'll work. I am skeptical about that.

She'll blow it like crazy and be up to her eyeballs in debt; I am sure she dislikes not getting the best couture for appearances, like she used to.

I do think that Kate is the epitome of someone from the lower end of the class scale, not just birth, but nature.

With her resources, her title, her newly acquired connections, she should be out thriving and doing a great job as consort and mother; instead, she's smoking cigs, watching trash shows, and basically leaving her children to be raised by the help and her mother runs the household.

She's no different than a teen mother who still wants to mooch around and mope while life passes her by. She'll never be able to get these years of her life that she's wasted back. She's also married to a man who hasn't grown up and is still infatuated with his ex (Jecca) and is still grossly underemployed and uninterested in bettering himself. He's still living in the years where as a teen he had the world at his feet and unaware that he's balding, gone to seed, and he's out of step with his people (and reality in  general) and still waiting for his supposed glory years to begin.

She isn't someone who has grown up at all and I daresay that this is why a career is important, it can take you far away from a less than perfect beginning in life.

Pure bs Kate might skip Eug's wedding for Pip, even if she were to have her baby on the same day it's not like K will should or could show up at the hospital. No need for that and it's likely not allowed, too much stress having too many people around anyway (it's not a Kartrashian "reality TV" birthing special where the whole clan is present for crying put loud). Also even if Kate would skip anything, then it could be the reception and the stuff that isn't public. But the skipping bit is just wild unfounded speculation and plays into the PR of them being such tight sisters and there for each other, even if it doesn't make sense.

Oh and I see, the "keen to hit the ground running" post-maternity-leave bs PR is in full swing already.

She doesn’t get on with the York sisters at all and its well known that Prince Andrew can’t stand her or her ghastly social climbing family.  She will know that she isn’t welcome and probably not even invited although Willy was once close to them.  Knowing how their naive and dumb PR team work we will probably now see an article on how they are all ‘best friends’.  PR teams these days take the public for fools.

She can't be not invitetd, what family doesn't invite someone's spouse? Eug is forgiving anyway, doubt she's still holding a grudge. Doesn't matter anyway who can/not stand whom, it's a Windsor Production and therefore all Windsors better trott up and flash their horse teeth to the plebs.

If she doesn't show, this will show that there is friction in the BRF and the BRF is fixated on being as much of a united front as possible.

If that happens, Kate will get it in the neck big time; first shirking her duty to attend as a member of the BRF and then her sister takes attention away from the bride's big day by her sister going into labor and stealing all the press focus. I do think that it might actually a going too far and Kate will end up being asked to pack her suitcase and get out of the BRF. This would be two slaps in the face and it might in fact end up pushing HM too far if her favorite son is upset and outraged. I do wonder if Kate has the guts to shirk appearing at this wedding.

Remember, Fergie thought that her position as HRH Duchess of York was unassailable and then HM asked for a divorce (admittedly during a separation); Fergie thought she was in control of the divorce, but go figure, Fergie ended up having it taken out of her hands after that nude scandal. I think Kate is unaware that while HM and the others might not want a divorce, if pushed far enough, the BRF will throw her out and leave her with next to nothing. I do think Kate isn't aware that if she keeps needling and antagonizing the BRF one too many times, HM might in fact take control of the situation and then go figure, it'll get very ugly for Kate.

It's like Kate has some kind of compulsion to start trouble or screw up good things in her life.

Post by: sandy on September 17, 2018, 11:01:05 am
Even if she goes into labor on the day of the wedding, Pippa only needs her husband and perhaps her mother around. Kate can be gracious attend the wedding and reception then right after go to the hospital to see her sister. She can phone the hospital or ask that she gets a call when the baby comes (at the reception). Kate is not going to be a labor coach and Pippa was not at Kate's side when george, charlotte and louis were born.

I find it ironic; as girlfriend, Kate took whatever social scraps she could get and now she's determined to avoid royal life as much as possible. As girlfriend she was willing to pick up dead birds and go to parties with insulting themes; now as wife she avoids events where she would be able to dress up completely and BRF family events.

She has spent her entire waste of a life trying to get away from her fellow citizenry (posh everything plus her determination to have only posh friends and shirking duties) and now she suddenly wants to swoop in and start rehabilitating an entire broken culture? She has a lot of gall since for the past near decade she has worked HARD to draw a line between herself and the rest of the nation (that incidentally pays for her lifestyle) and she has the NERVE to suddenly try to set up something like this? She has an expired degree, no work history, no real brain (drenched in booze and possibly drugs), and she wants to be a charitable player in her own right?

This isn't going to bring jobs to her nation, it is not going to really make much of anything of her time, and it's just another way for her to try to launch on a world stage that has made it clear that they do not want to put up with her meddling. There are bigger issues going on and this dolt wants to be taken seriously after all her slacking. As of now the world is about to erupt in WWIII and she wants to try to get taken seriously and get respect. She would be better off doing daily work at the Prince's Trust and I do wonder if whether or not it would be possible for someone to get her in line and tell her to stop trying to make herself 'happen' and just get on with daily life.

She should know by now that if she hasn't 'happened' by now, surely it's never going to occur. She's not Diana, never has been, never will be, and the world is a lot more competitive for people who want to stand out and be famous. She's made one messy mistake after another and clearly she refuses to learn that in order to get respect at the level she married into (pushed herself into really) she has to have something to stand on and that 'something' is work and behaving with dignity. She hasn't been doing that and her background as William's mistress (I don't care about being nice, she was at his beck and call and didn't want to do honest work and that essentially made her his mistress) and people in power know this and don't care what the media spin is.

She has zero "it" factor and she can't stop trying to push herself into relevance. Even her media toadies can't make her happen to the wider world.

Keira Knightley pens a graphic account of childbirth as she bemoans impossible standards set by 'beautiful, stylish' Duchess of Cambridge just hours after giving birth
The actress, who is mother to three-year-old Edie, wrote about the 'vomit, the blood, the stitches' as she went into labour in May 2015, just a day before the Duchess of Cambridge welcomed Princess Charlotte into the world.

Kate famously left hospital just seven hours after being admitted to the Lindo Wing with both Charlotte and Louis in April this year, sparking a fierce debate on post-baby bodies.

In her essay, The Weaker Sex, the Pirates of the Caribbean star, 33, contrasts Kate's experience with her own, noting how the Duchess 'was out of hospital seven hours later with her face made up and high heels on'.

She looked like she’d come out of a spa after each pregnancy as she appeared on the steps of the hospital after having given birth a mere hours before.  :bored:  Real mothers like Kiera and Serena are throwing shade on this fraudster.

What did I just read?  :sly:

I know, it's Radar. Still, does she drive all that much?

https://radaronline.com/exclusives/2018/10/kate-middleton-cops-speeding-london-driving/

Prince William’s wife appears prim and proper — but behind the wheel Kate Middleton is a pedal-to-the-metal speed demon!

RadarOnline.com has learned the lead-footed mother of three keeps getting pulled over by cops and then let go because she’s a royal!

“Kate has been warned multiple times by Metropolitan police in London to slow down,” a palace source said.

“But there’s really nothing the cops can do. She is who she is, and it’s not as if they are going to issue her a speeding ticket.”

Matters came to a head earlier this year after Kate, 36, was clocked doing 92 miles per hour within the London city limits — where she’s often spotted tooling around in a pricey SUV.

It was the third time in 18 months that Kate was busted for exceeding the speed limit, although she routinely drives slower when her children are in the car, the source said.

Yet, the incident spurred Scotland Yard to make a discreet request to Buckingham Palace that the Duchess of Cambridge slow down.

“It unfortunately fell to William to inform Kate of this advisory,” said the source. “He was a little sheepish about it, understandably, but Kate still didn’t take it well.”

I think she is pleased with herself mainly since she is now a seasoned member of the BRF and knows it; she isn't fully accepted, but she's reached a plateau where she is tolerated and can now lord her position over someone in the BRF (Meg) and she is now experienced in being on their side of the VIP rope. She has three kids and in her mind, that has cemented her position and she seems content with her role in the BRF, even if she isn't happy as a wife (who would prefer her husband abandon Jecca). I think she is complacent and feels that she has a chance now to live the life she's wanted.

She's calmed down considerably and she seems content to settle into a routine (minus work, which will always be held against her) and she seems to have given up on her initial grand plans to go to fashion shows and other events and she strikes me as content to be considered worthless mainly since she fancies her life to be set in stone. She has (in her mind) no real worries and clearly she might think she's going to have it easy form here on out.

I don't think she'll have it easy if she does not work. Charles is adamant about the scaled down monarchy and does not want the York sisters involved. If his daughter in law Kate persists in the laziness then he'll be possibly forced to relent and ask Bea and Eugenie to do royal work. I think that would be a horrible thing for him so he most likely would then force the issue of Kate working and making it unpleasant for her if she doesn't. There are members of the public who look down on her laziness, people do not have short memories. I think she's deluded if she thinks she can get away with shirking duties.  If Meghan does work more than Kate (easy to do) it will be difficult for her to lord it over Meghan. IMO. The only ones who think she is "perfect" are the sugars and those who want to trash MEghan. The DM comments begin with Kate is classy but that awful Meghan blablabla. It is not a real attachment to Kate she is just used as the 'ideal' (LOL) royal and she decidedly isn't.

^^ Kate is a fool if she thinks her life is set in stone. Has she learned nothing from Diana's life? When Diana married, everyone expected she'd been Queen. It was taken for granted. Well, we know how that turned out. Nothing in life is set in stone except for death and taxes, and that applies even to her.

Also, the high that comes with no longer being the 'new girl' will soon fade when reality sets in, and it becomes clear that nothing has changed about her choices and lifestyle.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on October 14, 2018, 03:04:23 am
I think Kate is going to have problems growing older. Her entire identity is based on being the ingenue royal and the ingenue consort; the only good press she gets is from PEOPLE Magazine or the tabloids and they're youth obsession only lasts for her mainly because none of them are sure that their readers will accept that Kate is not a child. I think in her mind she's still a young uni graduate who is just starting fresh in the world and clearly she is going to struggle with things once she has to face the fact that no one around her thinks of her as cute or endearing or adorable. Also, really, she has to stop acting like she has the right to keep the world waiting.

There is always a new fresh face on the scene and when Kate becomes Princess of Wales (I'll just run with the current situation as it stands) she won't be an ingenue or new to the scene, she will be a much older woman and with her lack of anything to talk about, she will end up pushed aside and no different than an aging veteran actress. As it is, the DM has tried to hype her, but it falls flat since she didn't come from nowhere, she came from a groupie to consort and that's not really all that much to brag or talk about. Kate hasn't worked, she hasn't cooperated with the press, and she's challenged HM at every possible turn while bashing Charles nonstop.

I don't think she'll have it easy if she does not work. Charles is adamant about the scaled down monarchy and does not want the York sisters involved. If his daughter in law Kate persists in the laziness then he'll be possibly forced to relent and ask Bea and Eugenie to do royal work. I think that would be a horrible thing for him so he most likely would then force the issue of Kate working and making it unpleasant for her if she doesn't.

I believe Charles already skimps on new clothing and I do think he dislikes having her under his roof/being in the same palace as her while if he has to take the Yorkies on his payroll, he will make it even worse for Kate behind closed doors. I do wonder if Kate is aware of just how much Charles may likely *despise* her guts. Fact is, right after that engagement announcement, Charles kicked her out of Clarence House instead of letting her stay and he also surely resents how she pushes her family onto everyone's back.

I think this positive press is in fact only temporary; she's back to flashing and clearly isn't aware that Meg has been working harder and as a result, is getting better stuff. I do not think that this positive glow will last and I think it's just going to get worse for her if Meg keeps up the appearances. For some reason Meg classed her rep up, but it won't last.

I find it interesting how opposite Kate is from Diana; when Fergie married in, Diana got some bad press, but regained it almost effortlessly. With Meg around, Kate has a boost to her PR rep, but I think it will not last long and it will end up with her getting bad vibes again with no real struggle. She can't seem to find her footing in royal life.

Waity was also told off many times before (& after) the wedding by police for parking anywhere she likes, incl spaces reserved for emergency services!!! She's literally the worst in that aspect. She also tried to get out of speeding tickets during the dating years, and was also caught with her mobile whilst driving. The worst type of driver you can have.

I don't doubt that she speeds and is often caught (& I'm sure she pulls all the stunts as before, on phone whilst driving, parking anywhere, speeding... esp now that she's a useless Winds), but 90mph in London is a bit of a fantasy number. The roads are always clogged beyond capacity and you move at a snail's pace. Sometimes walking somewhere is quicker than taking the car or bus... Not sure where you can drive 90mph, at best during the dead of night when the roads aren't so full, but even then...

I also don't understand how she still flashes. 1st time seeing that pic of K from behind from Eug's wedding. Everyone there must have gotten a real eye-ful. I have no words. And that outfit was pretty incl colours, but seriously, it's literally the same as the lighter pink number she wore for trooping, only difference is it's a different shade of pink and the sleeves are longer.

I don't get this woman.

I know that, but even so I don't get how one could even hit normal speeds in London, given that the normal speed is generally glacial. I think London traffic is worse than NYC. Personal opinion apropos of nothing.

Anyway, back on topic. The thing with 'buying the same outfit in several colors' annoys me. The Queen Mum used to do it. She'd get the same hat and dress remade in a new fabric. With an elderly lady, it's understandable. She knew what suited, and she wasn't hyping herself as a fashion plate.

But with KM, it's just lazy, and speaks of no care for money. It's not like she's buying five of the same sweater half-off at Zara. She has resources at her fingertips to look good, to be thoughtful, and it's literally the same thing over and over. And the problem is, her outfits are consistently too tight, too short, and frequently unsuited to the occasion.

^  :thumbsup: Esp on your first paragraph lol So true!
Ldn traffic might indeed be worse than NY traffic, due to the abundance of buses in Ldn I'd say.

Yeah the same same outfits also annoy me because she's out & about once in a blue moon and then all there's to see is repeats but in "new". Isn't she bored of the same same stuff herself? I don't buy the cr*p bs given of "she doesn't want to overshadow (the bride/ event/ bla)".

And let's face it, she's always been a pure clotheshorse and always will be (in spite of the early on leaks how she wouldn't be and doesn't want to be, one of the 1st lies!), and she doesn't even do that right!

I like elegant, classic outfits, often she's called frumpy but I don't quite think so. Many of her more classic, simple outfits I really like (I do *despise* all her crazy & animal prints or the "granny's curtain redone as dress" outfits). I'm not a fashion fanatic/ victim, so I'm not looking for "new" stuff or crazy stuff or anything out-there. Just some change for crying out loud!

There's also nothing exciting about her, no work to speak of, no wit, no personality, so the one thing she has left is clothes and even that's really uninspiring. Rows and rows of the very same outfits but different colour or length. Jeez. When you open her wardrobe it must be like Steve Jobs's, only difference being the multitude of colours in K's wardrobe, whereas Jobs's outfits were all the same but black black black.

My sincerest wish for her wardrobe is that she would engage with more British designers who could, in keeping with British design and fabrics, do a bit more for her in terms of classic and yet some kind of evolution, growth. I often think her clothes are a bit tight, especially her skinny leggings.

Jeggings are worn by women who prefer to show as much off as possible. I do not think Kate is used to the reality that she doesn't have to show it off anymore to get a ring. Unfortunately, she was raised to advertise, not protect herself and respect herself by dressing decently.

She didn't marry William to be a British princess; she's emulating Diana near the end of Diana's life, when after the divorce Diana became more cosmopolitan. Kat eodesn't realize or understand that she is married in and should be more British-centric. Someone might guide her, but I think the courtiers are giving up on her and not bothering anymore. Clearly Kate won't listen and she's WAY beyond the point in her life where she should have to be guided in anything.

Wills and Waity have shown pda either for the cameras or on Wills part, to “push” her along from lingering, way before Meghan came onto the scene.

You know, I understand a lot of people think Kate has at long last matured, but I think she's faced something about her life that has killed off any kind of real spark inside of her that she might have had left. It could well be that she has faced the ugly facts that she will not be getting all she thought she would have as William's wife. She is not a respected or beloved figure on the world stage, she is not going to go to fashion shows by the dozen, and the press is not making her their main priority. It's clear she thought she would launch into the cosmopolitan dream life, but that didn't happen and she might in fact have become broken. I think this marriage has broken her spirit and broken her heart. I think she thought she was the magical 'one' and all her past would be gone, her mishaps forgiven, and she would be embraced by the BRF and William and William would protect her forever.

Instead, the opposite has happened and she's now aware of just what a mess she's made of her life. Even her own family is of no comfort and is using her.

Kate's secret girls' day out with Charlotte revealed: Duchess took her daughter, three, to watch a rehearsal of The Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House ahead of opening night this week
The Duchess of Cambridge took Princess Charlotte for a mother-daughter trip to the ballet, it has been revealed.

Kate, 36, brought her three-year-old daughter along to watch a rehearsal of the Royal Ballet's production of The Nutcracker at the Royal Opera House, in London, last week ahead of its opening night on Monday.

Social media photos emerged showing the royal mother and daughter in the auditorium following the performance.

^^  KF, most married people, then, have broken spirits, because reality hits hard in all marriages.   I think Kate went through a rough patch after her first year of marriage.  She looked as though she was going through depression or something.   However, she appears to be finding her feet and enjoying her duties.   The only constant in life is change.

Unless it is fun, I truly don't think she enjoys her duties. Her smiles and open mouthed laughter seems very affected and fake. I don't think there was any problem the first year just that she wanted to continue the lifestyle of doing very little work and she did resist doing it through excuses.

I don't think she was depressed; I think she was waking up to the reality that, as a royal, she would have to actually work and do something. She was deeply unpopular with the rest of the RF and the public. It's ridiculous that it has taken 7 years for her to 'find her feet', especially as she spent basically a decade doing nothing apart from acting as Wills's girlfriend.

I think she has always done what William told her to do. She didnt work much because he didnt want to work and  he didnt want her to outshine him.

Either way it worked well for the RF. Katr had had the heir, she is mostly popular but not overly so and does what the RF says.

I guess Beatrice thought if she were like Kate and just stayed in a relationship for years it would work for her too. But Dave Clark dumped her anyway. I think it was Kate's idea to wait and Will did not tell her to do it. He even dumped her a few times.


Title: Re: Kate: Press Articles & Random I Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on December 06, 2018, 07:10:46 pm
I sometimes wonder if Dave thought that he wouldn't be able to support Beatrice at all and realized he wasn't cut out to it. Beatrice has her wealth, but I wonder if whether or not it would have made any difference to Dave.

^yup and wasn't it rumored that Kate didn't work cause she wanted to be on call for William whenever he needed her he says jump she says how high?

Exactly, she was his 'beck and call girl' and if you give the real name to 'official girlfriend,' we're talking more along the lines of 'official mistress.' She was his mistress for all those years. If she had been any kind of respectable girlfriend, she never would have been kept in the bars, the nightclubs dressing like a tramp and taken to the seedy jet set places where most shady types go. He never would have made vulgar remarks or made her wait so long if he viewed her as respectable. Second, the BRF never would have made her wait that long to get a ring. If the relationship is serious and respectable, the bride to be is never made to wait ten long years. Even during her engagement she was kept out of the palaces instead of being moved in swiftly.

As for the BRF, I think at this point in time they've washed their hands of her and let her do what she wants (or doesn't want).

During the engagement period and the first year or so of marriage, Kate seemed happy and was out and about on engagements.  It wasn't until around the time of George's pregnancy/birth that her demeanor took a nose dive.  It was discussed here, I believe.  Almost she had been hit by bad news in her marriage or she had depression or something.  It's pretty easy to see through photographs.  No, she isn't a workhorse, but she was "working" at the beginning and seemed to enjoy it.

I recall she did not work that much the first year--or second. I know the first tour with William was soon after the wedding in 2011 and I recall they stopped to attend an event in California with film stars. Then I remember that she seemed to disappear and it was said she was "researching" her charities and this "held up" more work. Then the probably mythical spin that she was given a 2 year grace period for doing little work because the Queen wanted Kate and William to have an opportunity to have time on their own like she and Prince Philip had in Malta. I just don't think she enjoyed or enjoys royal work. And then the spin that Kate had to be "eased in" because the Queen "learned her lesson" from the Diana and Fergie years not to rush into work. I don't believe that for a second because Diana was hardly out of her teens and Kate was pushing 30 and did turn 30 in January 2012. Plus there were other issues going on back then.

I wasn't sure where to put this because it is a story about Kate that leads me to discuss Megs.   Fancy that!   

Has anyone ever seen a photo of Megs going and coming from any of the royal homes?  As big an exhibitionist as she is, she would have made certain to splash photos of herself doing so as often as she could. 

To me, this is a big red flag.    :bored:

Meghan of course would go to royal homes. She is married to the Prince of Wales second son. The paparazzi take the photos. No selfies are taken.

I don't see any big red flag. The DM I think is creating trouble. . Why must it always be about Meghan?

Kate going to the home means nothing, She used to walk out in the early hours of the morning from a residence when she was single after spending the night with Will when they were dating.

I don't see any issues here.

She has been in the company of the Queen. She would not be barred from any royal residences. Too much IMO is read into Kate's going there. Meghan was seen going to royal events like Christmas and other gatherings at royal residences. So must Meghan show up tomorrow to "prove" there is nothing wrong?

Post by: YooperModerator on December 13, 2018, 04:51:17 pm
^Actually, yes, it would help her image to be seen going in/out of major royal residences and being seen in happy company with other members.  There’s more than a whiff of royal irritation with her right now. 

However, if she does start doing that then it will look staged so she’s missed her window of opportunity.  I personally think it’s slowly dawning on the BRF that she’s a major headache to sell but don’t have a workable battle plan yet.  They’ve tried dopey surgery articles here and there but they know she’s not the Grand Sensation they had expected, foolishly.

Unless there are statements or actual evidence I am not sold on this story. Last year, a "big thing" was made of Princess Michael wearing a pin depicting a person of color and how it was "offensive" to Meghan and how Princess Michael was "making a statement". The whole thing died down after the DM tried to make a big deal about it.

The Queen approved the wedding. And the wedding was only a few months ago, The couple is expecting a baby now.

She always had critics on Tumblr and the same people are just carrying them over to post wedding. That's how I see it.

Kate might be getting good PR for now, but behind closed doors, I am sure she is still tolerated at best and disliked; as for her husband, he has been seen around Jecca, not even trying to hide it anymore and I am certain she is having more than her fair share of bad looks thrown at her as Meg works and she does not.

Post by: Kuei Fei on December 20, 2018, 06:11:43 pm
I think I have an idea I would like to articulate to you guys on why Kate gets to me so much:

It's the acts that she puts out. While she was just his girlfriend/bed-mate she acted like she was his betrothed who was someone who didn't have to bother with a career since her life was mapped out and marriage was inevitable. After she married she acted like she had never seen or know the wider world and would prefer to live a quiet life, despite the fact that she has been around the world' jet set spots her entire life. She then acts all virginal and demure and also proceeded to give the middle finger to a waiting nation and the royal court. Then despite being eager to join William on royal estates, she starts ignoring BRF gatherings and decided that she would spend time with her family instead of attending on her Sovereign and head of the family. Now that she's a duchess of nearly ten years, she chooses to go all condescending, as if she's doing the public some big favor or show off by being informal and attempting to be playful. She then gave Meg a HUGE snub as Meg walked up to the altar and to me that was inexcusable, doing that at someone's own wedding and being snotty despite her own history of being William's mattress and the mattress of others before she got into William's bed. It's more than a little irritating that she pushes people to buy her BS personas.
