^ "With a prince, the situation would only be amplified. William would crucify her and he would have to be ruthless..."

Willy has shunned members of the press for years, but I think he may finally turn to them when he starts publicly calling it quits on the marriage. He'll need to, not just to avoid looking weak, but to counteract the public, hellish media storm Waity and the Midds will likely concoct.

As much as he continues to enjoy nearly unconditional love from the press, it will be difficult to defend him as being a good husband and father (being away so much, etc.) unless significantly negative secrets about Waity are revealed. Presumably, she puts up with a lot more from him than he does from her (that's how she got the ring, after all). She may be work shy and inappropriate, but he may be having a huge affair with Jecca, or who knows who else, and it could all come to light when he tries to leave.

At this point, I think he would have to be ruthless just to save his own image. There was talk about Waity signing some confidentiality agreement prior to the marriage so she couldn't do any Diana-style interviews in the event of a divorce. But even if that's true, it doesn't mean her family or others can't reveal her experiences for her, at least to some extent.

Ticking time bomb if you ask me. The happy romantic relationship between these two is so yesterday. It already was on the day they said their vows.

The Viper thinks she is calling the shots and that it is her who"allows" access because the RF is not his legal guardian.
What she forgets is that the loophole could easily be fixed if the RF wanted that to happen.
The fact that it did not is very telling.
BG could be sitting on Chuck's lap 24/7 if he wanted it that way but instead the boy is in total isolation with Maria and the Viper as his only company.
The Mansons are not putting 2 and 2 together. tehe

Frankly I wonder if Kate has the proper table manners to take part in a state-banquet.

At the time of the wedding, the running joke in the upper class (or so I am told by an English colleague who is the nephew of a Marquess) was that the Queen didn't want to face Carole Middleton shoving food into her mouth like a miner, so a buffet-dinner was organised.

He is said to always wear blue suits as believes they flatter his blue eyes!   Had to laugh at his vanity.

Seriously?  She doesn't even know how to dress properly, let alone do her make up for a Vogue cover.  Thought royals were not meant to do that anyway.

If Ma medd sees dollar signs before her eyes she would allegedly tell Kate to grab the opportunity and fill the coffers.   It is said that Ma medd has not the slightest inclination to observe Royal protocol.  Word out is that there is most definitely a war on.

She just isn't capable of the intelligent conversation and diplomacy required at these events.  Kate's lack of conversation skills, knowledge of world affairs and economics etc have frequently been discussed.  She has shown that she is only capable of uttering platitudes and monosyllabic responses all accompanied by frantic head nodding and hand flapping.  Diana attended many, here and abroad and was an asset.

Agreed; anti-semitism was the norm (unfortunately) among the upper class in both Europe and the US for many years. When in the 1930's the Dutch government wanted to establish a village for Jewish refugees coming into The Netherlands from Germany, they originally wanted it to be on the Veluwe in the center of The Netherlands.

It was however also close to the Palace Het Loo (loo being old-Dutch for wooden area) which was the summer residence of Queen Wilhelmina. The Queen had her secretary write a letter to the government to request the village be located somewhere else, not too close to her palace. The government obeyed and it became Westerbork. Which was then used by the nazi's as a go-through camp to Auschwitz, Treblinka etc.

BTW I recently read the FDR-biography of Jean Edward Smith and the biography dealt mostly with the anti-Catholicism with which both Franklin and Eleanor were raised. Something that lasted much longer with Eleanor than with FDR. When FDR had to work together with the Irish Democrats in New York City to get elected governor of the state of New York, both his mother and wife were rather appalled. But FDR learned that a politician has to cross barriers, racial as well as religious barriers (and the gender-barrier! Francis Perkins was the first female members of a US Cabinet!) and he did. Whether out of opportunism or out of a genuine believe, that remains the question.
