William and Lupo: the real royal love match

It's sloppy writing.  Probably a result of the original draft having been edited to within an inch of its life.

Duchess devastated by hospital tragedy: Little boy, 4, who stole Kate's heart died at hospice after blunders by clinic at centre of NHS scandal
Quote
A four-year-old boy died after one of the hospitals shamed by David Cameron as having persistently high death rates repeatedly failed to diagnose his cancer.

Mackenzie Cackett’s tragic plight won the heart of the Duchess of Cambridge when she made a trip to The Treehouse hospice where the little boy spent his final weeks last year and where she is patron.

Rare pic of Kate with the child is included with the article.

Such an awful shame about Mackenzie dying.
The poor chap died on June 9th, 2012. It's a crying shame that he'd be used for Waity's pr as she's getting bad press again for this holiday to Mustique.  thumbsdown  bignono

1) If this is for PR: You are some sick f*cks to use a child's death as a way to distract people from an asinine vacation.

2) I threw this question out to Tumblr, and someone sent back that this is part of the DM's series of articles to get Nicholson fired or for him to resign. It just so happens that this one was in conjunction to Kate and aided her in PR for her vacation (but that's not the only reason why it's been published like how I've reacted for #1). http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2274699/Sir-David-Nicholson-Man-shame-NHS-chief-presided-worst-hospital-scandal-insists-ashamed-of.html

It's very wrong to use this as PR. Certainly if this is 'old news'.  bignono

Well, doesn't this say something about how far their image has fallen and how desperate their PR team is to save it? You don't bring up a child's death that happened 9 months ago just because of a few negative comments from the public.

While it was nice to send a note to the child's parents, she couldn't have sent a hand written one?  It's only a few sentences, she could have written that herself in five minutes.  I just find a typed letter incredibly impersonal.  When people ask what Diana would have thought about Kate, this is something that she would not like.  A hand written note would be mandatory.  And Diana may have even phoned them.

This is the 2nd story that paints Waity as a caring person towards stricken kids. I couldn't read the full article because I was in the magazine. The heading was all I needed to read to see that it'd be syrup drival about Waity and not about the boy. They've included a few pictures of letters that Waity allegedly wrote to Ryan; all typed and signed by secretaries and one supposedly by Waity.
Heading: How caring Duchess Kate is giving Ryan strength.  thumbsdown  Shocked

http://www.helloonline.com/royalty/2013020611053/fabian-bates-william-kate/

Perhaps this should be taken up in the pr thread, but it seems like the press is using the sick kids to boost her workshy and frivolous image. How can anyone complain to call her out when she such a caring woman who takes time out of her very busy life to concern herself with ill children.  sauer

I find it disgusting using sick children as a PR ploy especially since she has shown no caring for them at all.

I see the palace is playing hardball now; she's being made ot get to real work after the kid is born, so no chance of disappearing.

The palace is definitely playing hardball now.

Oh wow Richard Palmer said it was hard to get the papers to carry Kate's story of her charities.

In his words "boring." and he mentions doesn't show much about her character) in his tweets.  Shocked

Quote
Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter1h
Kate's new patronages reflect her existing interests and charity work. It was a struggle to get this story into this morning's papers  sly

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter49m
Rightly or wrongly, news editors felt it was a dry, boring story     Shocked

Palmer‏@RoyalReporter41m
@anthn As far as I can see, they're not though. They might be online but the story is not in most print editions.

Duchess Kate Blog‏@HRHDuchesskate50m
@RoyalReporter Very interesting. There was substantial media interest in her choice of patronages in January 2012.

Richard Palmer‏@RoyalReporter40m
@HRHDuchesskate Yes, I think it's interesting. I think it's because it doesn't tell us anything much new about her character and interests.   eating cookies  

OUCH!!!
Some of the press is already finding Kate boring.....and bringing up the words "her character" involving her is not a good sign.
