A DM comment


Everyone asking where are the pics of the 'proud parents' who are said to have dropped him off?   Those close say they are still sunning themselves in Mustique whilst a cobbled up and photoshopped image will no doubt appear somewhere.  The public are no longer  fooled.   

Ma Midds paid astroturfers are out in their droves with their sycophantic comments, all just too obvious now.   That poor child will have a difficult life with the DNA snatchers waiting to prove who he really is.

According to Rob Jobson, on Channel 7 here this morning, the press have agreed to respect George's privacy and so none went there at all - how true I don't know.

I have read somewhere that it is only accessible down a private road and so easily able to manage to keep the press out.


Even assuming that is all true, this is too odd. If Willy and Waity intended this milestone to be a private event for George, then why did they release photos of it? Also, even if the school is on a private road, surely their car was on a public one at some point while traveling there. They always have excuses, and I suspect what you heard and read are examples.

There are many roads onto the Sandringham Estate and the press don't just sit around waiting and hoping for a picture of a royal leaving the estate in a big car.

Unless they knew the day, in advance, they wouldn't bother and it seems they have agreed to let him have private time going and coming to school - as happened with William and Harry as well as the other royal children in the UK.

The public roads aren't that easy to simply stop and wait to capture a picture - either major roads on which quite a bit of traffic would be coming and going or the smaller roads that are often 'no stopping' areas so they couldn't simply wait.

Most of the time when we get photos of royals in cars it is because there is a well-known event taking place or it is in London e.g. the Christmas Lunch at BP or the Diplomatic Reception but we don't normally get images of royals coming and going from BP, CH or KP even in London where most of the press is based and even fewer images ever appear of the royals outside London. Even the Queen's arrival at Sandringham is barely covered, if at all, while her departure from London is.

Had this been a school in London I would have expected a greater chance of photos of them arriving - but again only if the press knew in advance when he was going to start. Knowing he was going to start 'in January' was guaranteed to allow him a no press coverage event as the press pack simply wouldn't camp out around a nursery school in January in the UK for days on end.

There's no way Waity was there. If she was there, she'd want to be in the shot. It's an odd photo to take of a child on their first day of school, anyway. He doesn't look happy.

Private time is one thing, the Dutch royals are big on that as well. But even they allowed the photographers and a few cameras to take pictures and some footage of them, even in the school.

And although William and Harry, and plenty of other royals, have been given privacy on regular schooldays, this wasn't a regular schoolday. This was his first schoolday, so pretty momentous.

Royals depend on public opinion to survive, and that opinion can only be good if the people feel a connection with the royals. And the royals sharing a big day with the people can forge that connection. Leaving the public out will seriously harm their position and their chance of survival, as royals.

Like many others have said...this stinks. Kate is always keen to revive some Diana-moment and this was another outstanding option for her. But she didn't. To me that means she was unavailable because she is in Mustique.
Will be interesting to see if George's first day of school will be placed in the CC as work for William and Kate. I wouldn't put it past them.

^ITA Charles is well aware of the need to keep the people onside as he has said more than once that the monarchy only exists at the will of the people - stubborn willy is too silly to see this

But this isn't true school - he's two, so it's mostly eating crackers and finger painting. And probably hitting some other kid over the head in some spat over a favourite toy.

So the questions then become: 
Why is he being send to daycare?  He is being send to the daycare component of a Montessori school.  Most of them have an early year component.
Did any other royal send their child(ren) to daycare when they have a nanny at home?
Did any other royal send their child(ren) to daycare when they, the parents, stay at home and don't work?

And..
Have the parents figured out this child needs to socialize since he hasn't been provided any other avenue to do so??
if this is the case, has this been pointed out to the parents or did they figure this out on their own??

^^When you look at the pictures and images of Williams first day at school, that was also a nursery school (September 1985). And that was done with a lot of press-attention.

Part of a comment from another forum

'I read that it was just an intro session probably on Monday and he doesn't start until later this month like after two weeks in Mustique - smoke and mirrors again.'

^ Would not surprise me in the least.  Probably took the photo a week or two ago on a private visit, photoshopped it to within an inch of its life and thought  -  let´s stick it out there, that will keep the plebs quiet.  For the life of me I can´t see cath medd missing a Diana copycat first day at nursery school appearance, we all know how she has ridden Diana´s coat tails into the dust.  I was also reading somewheter that the colour blue is favoured for autistm apparently, strange how we alsways see sprog I mostly in blue. Could be something and nothing, but does make me wonder.  He looks a lot more than 2 and a half to me, very large chuncky sprog. See the hair still being dyed.

^Good and completely accurate point re Kate not taking advantage of this 'event' for a showing herself off and making the most of this appearance. 

Maybe this photo was taken when he went to see the school beforehand?  That would make a lot more sense, to me.  First Day of School is  a major BRF PR moment, usually, but then again, with these two, there's no road map to follow, conclusively.

i agree with all of you, this stinks  thumbsdown
Why can t we see Waity copying LAdy Diana when Will started school? And again 30 years ago, when there was no internet, no facebook, no twitter and so on, people got the video of Will and a few years later of Harry' s first day of school with mum and dad. Why not with GEorge?

Dull, uneventful, and uninspiring as always from the Cambridge's. She really is raking in a ton of money on those personal photos isn't she? Would've preferred better pictures than these but whatever, don't really care anymore.

No, she is releasing them on Twitter. They are free for public use. The copyright only stops people from trying to make money solely on the image. So people can't for example put it on T-shirts and sell them. Although that's hard to completely stop. Or stop someone from using it in an ad campaign, like the school or clothing manufacturers, ect.

^^ This is just a few hours a week at a nursery school  for George, however, to get him socialised, learning to share and play with others etc. In a few years he'll be attending a school pretty well full time, probably in London, if Kate and William are Prince and Princess of Wales by then. That will probably be made into a PR occasion. So will the entry into Eton (or another public school) down the track.

^Y'all asked why she skipping a copycat Diana moment. Here you go, the jist being "Kate is a better mom than Diana." I wish I was kidding.  blink

I'm really surprised Ma didn't take him. She's such a hands on granny and really the only one G & C have.  ick

Ma has allegedly been told to keep a very low profile and is also said to be toasting those sharp knees in Mustique with the lazy duo.   Those close say that the RF are heartily sick of her jumping on their bandwagon.
