It would be really interesting if William is really having an affair with the Marchioness of Cholmondeley--it would be like his father neglecting his much prettier wife to have an affair with a plainer woman. Rose Cholmondeley is a former model, but anyone can see Kate is much prettier.

Neither George VI nor his father George V, the current queen's father and grandfather, had affairs. They were too uptight.

I agree it would be really unlikely for either William or Harry to cheat on their wives, since they know how miserable their father's cheating made their mother, whom they are both obsessed with.

Respectfully, that's just not how it works. Children grow up seeing their parents do all kinds of things (abuse drugs, hit their spouses, abuse their children, etc.). Yet, children repeat the same pattern (as their parents) rather than break the cycle.

This affair and trying to squelch it is the reason that Harry and Markle are gossiped about and disliked. The bad press the Sussexes are getting are meant to distract from William's affair. And that's why the boys have split. Harry is pissed with William now that the Sussexes have to take the heat in the press--just so people don't pay attention to William's sex on the side.

In English, the male title holder is the “Marquess”. His wife is the “Marchioness”.

Actually, WW2 ended more so on both fronts because of Russia's efforts, not ours. Particularly in Japan. Many mistakenly have the belief that Japan surrendered due to Nagasaki and Hiroshima. No. The Russians were coming and the Japanese were well aware of how savage their forces were in Europe. That is what finally convinced them to surrender.

Title only. No names, please.

Their children are playmates. I'm sure it is all just an unfortunate misunderstanding by the duchess. By the way, "Marchioness of Cholmondeley" sounds much more regal and aristocratic than "Duchess of Cambridge."

No. Some holders of marquessates in the UK take the title of "Marquis," and some take the title of "Marquess." They are pronounced identically, only spelled differently, depending on the custom when the marquessate was created.

Further to R80: Enigma was broken thanks in large part to the contributions of Alan Turing, an English mathematician, computer scientist, logician, cryptanalyst, philosopher and theoretical biologist.

During the Second World War, Turing worked for the Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park, Britain's codebreaking centre that produced Ultra intelligence. For a time he led Hut 8, the section that was responsible for German naval cryptanalysis. Here, he devised a number of techniques for speeding the breaking of German ciphers, including improvements to the pre-war Polish bombe method, an electromechanical machine that could find settings for the Enigma machine.

Turing played a pivotal role in cracking intercepted coded messages that enabled the Allies to defeat the Nazis in many crucial engagements, including the Battle of the Atlantic, and in so doing helped win the war. Counterfactual history is difficult with respect to the effect Ultra intelligence had on the length of the war, but at the upper end it has been estimated that this work shortened the war in Europe by more than two years and saved over 14 million lives.

And how did the British government thank him for his efforts to shorten the war and save millions of lives?

Turing was prosecuted in 1952 for homosexual acts as the Labouchere Amendment had mandated that "gross indecency" was a criminal offence in the UK. He accepted chemical castration treatment, with DES, as an alternative to prison. Turing died in 1954, 16 days before his 42nd birthday, from cyanide poisoning. An inquest determined his death as a suicide, but it has been noted that the known evidence is also consistent with accidental poisoning.

Forty-five years after his death, British Prime Minister Gordon Brown made an official public apology on behalf of the British government for "the appalling way he was treated."

Not that it did Turing much good.

Jesus. Listen the Soviet Union declared war on Japan after Germany was defeated. They only fought on one front, and one enemy. Not like the US at all. Germany needed Soviet oil and so, invaded.

The Soviets defended their country, that's where the death count comes in. not from fighting for other countries. In other words, US is fighting an ofensive war, USSR a defensive one. They did not fight the war in the pacific. Then, Stalin thought, yes, let's grab territory. And entered the pacific theater way late.

Yes, the USSR, US, France, UK were allies.

For the record we put Nazis on trial at the end of WW2. Crimes against humanity and genocide. Nazis are bad people.

Back to this mess. The side piece and Kate look similar. Same build, hair. Same social standing. I think that's interesting. Have there been other cheating rumors about Will?

by Anonymousreply 9304/14/2019

R90: I do know that at least three movies, not one as you mention, have been made about Turing: Breaking the Code in 1996, Codebreaker in 2013, and The Imitation Game in 2014. Another three, 2000's U-571, 2001's Enigma, and 2001's All the Queen's Men dealt primarily with obtaining the Enigma machines, but of these three only the film Enigma deals with Bletchley Park and Turing in any detail. The third, All the Queen's Men, is unsurprisingly execrable, understandably as Matt LeBlanc and Eddie Izzard are the leads. In drag.

If you've seen The Imitation Game and relied on it as an accurate portrayal you'd be misinformed as Turing and the team at Bletchley were not the first to break the Enigma code; that had been done years before, starting in 1927, by the Polish Army's Cipher Bureau. While much credit is due Turing - far more than he received from the British government during his lifetime - at least as much or more is due the Poles whose contribution is accorded exactly one sentence in the film. It's said that when The Imitation Game was first shown in Warsaw, a hush fell over the crowd in the theatre when they realized that was all the credit the Polish contribution was going to get. See the story below from The Telegraph several years ago.

And, "No," I don't trouble myself by wondering why anyone, let alone you - whoever you are - cares about something I post. It's an anonymous board. I can't imagine why you'd ask if I do, though. I am, of course, happy to provide accurate information as noted by R88: "Great story. I had never heard that." Making me think perhaps not everyone is familiar with the story.

r74 is correct.

r93, Hitler had 3/4 of his military on the Eastern Front: Russia.

I know us Americans don't like it when our self-invented "exceptionalism" is challenged but, to know that Russia earned, at the cost of millions of lives, to lion's share of the credit for defeating Hitler doesn't take away from what Americans and other Allied did.

The use of "marchioness" was rare in England until the Stuart times. The wife of a Marquis was known as "The Lady Marquis of...." One of the few women who received a Marquessate in her own right was known as "The Lady Marquis of Pembroke". Over time, more and more marquises opted to use the spelling of "marquess". It wasn't until Queen Victoria's time that "marquess" became the standard, although in Scotland "marquis" was still being used by some peers as late as World War I.

When members of the British Royal Family gave up German titles during the First World War, Queen Mary's youngest brother, Prince Alexander of Teck was offered the title of Marquess of Athlone (Athlone was an Irish territorial designation as Ireland was still part of the UK then) in compensation for his lost German princely title. Alexander turned his nose up at it saying that "marquess" sounded French and that he would prefer to made an earl. So, Earl of Athlone it was.

To review: the USSR fought a defensive war with one other country.

The US fought an offensive war that was global in scale,

It's terrible thousands of Soviet civilians and soldiers died defending their homeland.

It's also terrible Stalin made a pack with Germany to invade Poland in the first fucking place.

It's also terrible Stalin purged his military staff so that the Soviets had no military command on the ground when the Germans invaded, leading to the above mentioned death of thousands.

So, yes, if you want to credit the unnecessary death of thousands of people has "helpful" in stopping a German advance great.

I haven't heard that. Here's what [italic]Vanity Fair France[/italic] writes regarding the rumours

[quote][bold]Not the first time.[/bold] VF France says “it’s not the first time” William and Kate have faced these kinds of rumors but with the Rose Hanbury situation, the Cambridges “seem shaken and destabilized.”

[quote][bold]The Cholmondeleys were cut off[/bold] VF France theorizes that the rumors basically started because Kate completely cut off the Cholmondeleys and asked the Turnip Toffs to do the same without explanation, and that’s why there’s been so much gossip within the Toff set. The Sun apparently “received a warning from the Palace in attempt to shut down the story.” But: “This infidelity is supposedly an open secret waiting to be spread on the public place.”

If Kate did move against the Cholmondeleys, it is a stupid move. Neither Will nor the Turnip Toffs are going to follow. If anyone is cut off, it's going to be Kate. She gains nothing by having the affair public; her best bet to wait it out. OTOH, Rose leaked that she doesn't care what is out there.

We don't know anything about Rose & Will - but it's been a long time since the Midds have been treated negatively in the press.

So, if Will wants to be rid of Kate, he will increase the heat on her and her family. He may not marry Rose. He, already has the kids, he can return to bachelor days w/photo ops with the children every so often.

[bold]William does not respect Kate,[/bold] has been thoughtlessly cruel to her before, and is capable of anything.

The thing with Kate is that she doesn't seem to have many interests or passions for different causes except for breeding. It's not like she's a notable patron of arts, championing social or environmental causes, whereas the women from that set usually have those interests and have something to talk about even if they will never work a day in the rest of their lives. That's what I meant when I characterized her as "basic."

r120 - I agree with [italic]Vanity Fair France[/italic] and other French publications (Public) on how this developed.

1 - Will & Rose begin a relationship. 2 - Rose brags about it to Will's friends. The story spreads to all the Turnips and then beyond. 2 - Kate finds out, asks the Turnips to cut Rose off. (Something that will not happen, because Rose & Will are natural members of their set, Kate is an interloper.) 4 - The Turnips retaliate by letting the press get wind of it. Rose refuses to deny it.

Rose has the incentive. She already humiliated Kate among the Turnips, let it spread to other groups; so, of course, when Kate responds, she all the incentive to continue humiliating her in the press.

Not so much b/c it is Rose's interest, but b/c it is so damaging to Kate's position. I wonder if Will gave tacit approval.

Meghan has her own problems; I can't imagine after all the bennies the BRF have denied her (jewelry, KP apt, separate press office, frog house) that she pokes that hornet's nest. Meghan (IMO rightly so) is looking to monetize her position so that she can leave whenever she wants.

If William is as fiercely protective of his privacy as we have been led to believe, and if there was an affair, Rose committed a cardinal sin in his book by blabbing to friends., who blabbed to others, etc. to the point that the "whispers" would reach the press. This is a man who purportedly drops false details in conversations to see if it gets back to him or is leaked to the press. Talking indiscreetly would be enough for William to cut her off on his own without any intercession from his wife.

R128 You have no idea how the aristocracy works. I saw it best described by the writer Jilly Cooper, who said that their attitude is (paraphrasing): marry well and produce an heir at all costs, then do what you like. Which neatly explains the sexual proclivities of the upper classes, and why they are relaxed about affairs, dodgy parentage issues with younger children and gay men marrying women, having an heir then carrying on as ever.

It’s only when those of us from the lower orders look at their behaviour through our own suburban lens that we get confused, disbelieving or outraged. It has always been thus and always will. R131 - you got it in one!

r130 That is the whole point isn't it. Why didn't Will cut Rose out? In the French press, she is identified as the one who spread the story to his friends. She seeded to the clouds so the press got hold of it. Moreover, the initial threats of lawsuits state that both families would go to the lawyers. The second threat (implemented) mentioned that "Rose has a wild side and doesn't care what's out there." Hmmm.

r132 I know how the British aristocracy works. That is what makes this story so strange. By all expectations, Kate would look the other way.

So the rumors start, Will doesn't cut Rose off, Kate insists. Odd sequence of events. I wonder what is going on? IMO - they want Kate to file for divorce. Why, who knows? Within whatever boundaries Will & Kate established for their marriage, this one crossed it.

A journalist friend of mine here in the States recently visited the UK. My US journalist friend has her own journalist friend in the UK, who told my friend all about this William/Rose cheating story before it became public. Then, a couple of months later, the story became public just as the UK journalist said. William cheated. Rose leaked it to the press.

But while all this was happening a few months ago, the press and the palace (secretly) continued to push the story that Markle is a social climbing bitch who doesn't get along with Kate so as to cause a distraction from the William cheating story. And that's why Harry is pissed at William. Kate and Markle are different but don't have much of a problem with each other. Harry resents everyone dumping on Markle and using her as the distraction to hide William's cheating. But now that the William/Rose cheating story is public, the heat is slightly off Markle. However, Harry is still mad because Markle's reputation took a bad hit partly due to William and partly due to Markle herself. Now the palace is doing everything possible to squash any stories William. It's working a bit. But the damage between the Cambridges and the Sussexes is done and will take a long time to repair if it can be at all.

I'd be more surprised (going for 3!) if Will (or Kate ) *didn't* have affairs during the marriage. Those two won't get divorced, it would serve neither one well. However, expecting them to only have the other to fuck until death they do part is charmingly innocent, and highly unlikely (how boring!)

Emotional affairs are the truly dangerous ones, and I'm wondering if something like that went down in this case. Will's fuck may have evolved into fancy.

For all we know, Will and Kate had a huge fight about something and he blurted it out.

Rose was born and raised in those circles. She wouldn't be that dumb to blab to someone she didn't know very well, and if she did tell a friend, I would assume that friend is from the same circle(s), and said friend would also not be that dumb. Maybe my fight theory is true, and one of the household staff went telling tales. I don't know.

I really don't think Rose is the leaker. To what end? She doesn't want Kate's job. None of Will's exes did. She already has plenty of money and she has far more freedom than Kate will ever see again. Why would she blow a good thing?

R173. I know because my journalist friend told me that Rose told friends in confidence about her affair, and news like this doesn't remain a secret. The general consensus is that Rose did not leak the news, and the press did not find out about the affair from her. She told friends (as it turns out, unwisely) and word started spreading. And maybe the friend didn't say anything, but maybe a member of someone's staff said something. People talk no matter how much you swear them to secrecy--or think they don't know. Plus, there are all sorts of royal watchers/writers who have contacts within aristocratic circles. Affairs don't go unnoticed no matter how hard the two parties involved think they're keeping it a secret.

Do I know for certain that this is how things became public? No. But I know as much as my journalist friend told me who recently got back from the UK--and she got the news from fellow UK journalists. These journalists were dying to find out this news. They started asking around. Word got out.

Exactly R180 - why would anybody with a title, a couple of magnificent houses at their disposal and vast amounts of money want to marry into the royal family? If they wanted to, they would. The last member of the aristocracy to marry into the royal family was Diana. And we all know how well that worked out.

This story is quite possibly an invention that was planted with the press and which has no factual basis at all, but has then been picked up on boards such as this, then fed back to the press like the Mail, and had gone from being a story about a rumour to being a story about, what? Something someone invented?

I can see that the suburban housewives who have invaded DL would find it all very exciting but I believe that it’s just a tired rumour about two reasonably well known, reasonably rich, not unattractive people possibly fucking. Or probably not.

And as for R172 quoting their friend a journalist as a source - the British tabloids pay people to sit around and invent shit like this all day long. Sometimes the story gets picked up, as this one did, usually it’s just one day’s click bait and subsequently vanishes. Just because it appears online doesn’t make it real.

Yes, people talk. Slightly off topic, but to prove my point: Last year, a key director of our staff at work was leaving the company. It was highly confidential because there was a question of whether this employee was leaving on his own or being fired, and it was going to leave a big void in the running of the company. There were basically three people who knew the details: the CEO, the chief of staff and this particular employee. No one else. However, one evening after hours (but not too late), the CEO was waiting for the elevator with the chief of staff. My office was right next door to the elevator. The CEO was talking about this employee leaving. The CEO did not know I was in my office, and as a result, I overheard the conversation. So now, I knew this top secret news. The elevator came, and the CEO and chief of staff got on the elevator and left the building.

I then discretely leaked the news to some other key executives who needed to know that this person was leaving. So yes, people talk. No one knew that I knew this information, and no one knew how I knew. But I knew. So someone on the royal staff or on the marchioness' staff could have overheard or seen something that no one else knew. Things happen. People talk, and sometimes you never know how they found out.

by Anonymousreply 19804/15/2019

R198, R193 here - I was just googling “brass ring” - still not sure what that means.

What I was saying is that for people in the British - primarily English and Scottish, aristocracy, someone with a British royal title doesn’t have the same impact as it does for the rest of us (including me).

They socialise with them, went to Eton or wherever with them, they’re usually related to each other (as are all the current non royal Dukes - all related and not distantly). It gets confusing when the rest of us look at their lives and try and view it through our experience - it just doesn’t work. I have been shot down in this forum before for saying this but for most English and Scottish aristocrats, the British Royal family is no big deal. Of course the Sovereign is at the top of the heap as the Fount of All Honours, but for most of them, the British royals are relatively recent, relatively arriviste Germans - “relative” being a relative term, of course.

Someone fucking the wife of the Duke of Cambridge? So what? He’s not particularly accomplished, pleasant featured, reasonably fit and born into the higher orders. They all are in that set - big deal!

And that’s a big deal to you, R200 - “the guy’s probably going to be king for 40 years”. Hopefully. One day. And that’s a big deal to most of us.

But to the very small numbers who make up the British aristocracy, he’s also the bloke who they went to school with. Or who dated their sister. Or whatever.

I’m getting a bit exhausted trying to get this across, so it’s probably just me, but I’ll try again.

Not long after Diana Princess of Wales died, one of the glossies - probably Tatler or Vanity Fair - did a profile on William, who was at Eton at the time. William was walking down the high street (Eton is a town, not just a school) with a group of friends and another group of Eton lads approached and one of them, on seeing William, made an exaggerated bow in front of him, as a joke. William’s response? “Fuck off”.

That should tell you something about how the upper classes respond to the British royal family - they’re not necessarily as enamoured as the rest of us.

Or maybe not, but I’m tired of this argument, which, in the scheme of things, means nothing. The upper classes have never given a fuck about what the rest of us think. William fucking the wife of a neighbour? So what? They’ve all always been fucking each other, it just gets more coverage now, sadly.

by Anonymousreply 20104/15/2019

R198 “If titles and hierarchy are important in that crowd”.

That’s the point! They all have titles. Or are descended from people who do. Or are untitled but completely grand with a history that can be traced back way before most of the current Dukes.

They are much less likely to be impressed with a Duke (royal or otherwise) or a Marquess, Earl, Viscount or Baron than the vast majority of the population who have no title or grand lineage.

Because that’s their default. They all know each other. They’re almost always related. It’s a very small world.

If you don’t believe me try looking up one of the current non Royal dukes on Wikipedia. Check out their mother. They’ll likely be the daughter or grand daughter of another duke. Keep going with her forebears. You can disappear down a rabbit hole trying to follow it.

R208 If they showed up looking happy and interacting with each other it would only fuel the gossip. They're frosty with each other most of the time. The party line is that they don't do PDAs because PDAs are unprofessional. The most you'll get from the Cambridges is a peck on the cheek at polo, or an arm around the shoulder/waist. That's basically frottage for them.

R211 - that's the former Penelope Eastwood with Philip in the photo. She's now Countess Mountbatten. Her husband is bending down behind her. She was also seen with Prince Charles when he was a bachelor. She either gets around or they're just family.

by Anonymousreply 21904/16/2019

Interesting story about Penelope. In 2010, her husband swanned off to the Bahamas to live with another woman. Ms Penny took over the management of Broadlands, the ancestral home. A few years later, he skulked back and she put him up in the barn. I'm sure it was a renovated barn but the point being, he was not allowed in the house. They appeared together at their daughter's wedding but Prince Charles walked her down the aisle. He was described as not well enough to do that. Other reports are that he has Alzheimer s.

A lot of sadness in that family. The IRA bombing that killed his grandparents and younger brother, the youngest daughter's death at age 5, the son's heroin addiction.

Charles’ nudes, at age 45, as reported by the Bild Zeitung:

[quote]A German newspaper published a colour nude photo of Prince Charles on its front page on Wednesday (7/9), hazy in detail but explicit enough to distinguish his genitals. "Large shoulders, muscular arms, a hairy, virile torso. Not an ounce too much fat, but just enough. A royal silhouette," the mass-circulation Bild Zeitung reported, claiming to have published the first nude photo of the heir to the British Crown. The picture shows the Prince of Wales with only a white towelling robe thrown carelessly over his shoulders. "His 1.85-metre (six-foot-one-inch) frame is cut like a Greek statue. And this at 45," wrote the paper, which sells 4.5 million copies a day.

I think Rose let the affair be known to enhance her status. Despite her position, home and wealth, she basically sold herself to a man old enough to be her father who was publicly described as 'not the marrying kind.' Other women in her set would certainly make a meal of that. So she upgraded herself as the lover of the future king.

There are a lot of people online saying they are disappointed with William, and wondering whether he’ll leave Kate for Rose. They claim it’s an actual love affair. Rose is apparently broadcasting it everywhere and that’s how it got out.

The problem with this is that Charles was seen as the dirty old man that couldn’t keep his pants zipped and William as the nice family man. Now he’s just another asshole.

I don’t think Meghan would actually step on any toes to mark her mark.

She seems the type to be overly enthusiastic and super friendly and try really hard and their British sardonic selves probably find her a bit too much and maybe at worst a bit annoying, but no one other than William (and Fergie and Air Miles, but who’d give a shit) actually hates her.

I am sure William dislikes her quite a bit because she has the same interests as Harry does in a bigger way, which gives him even less control over his brother. He has no compunction in finding Meghan a useful person to throw under the bus to distract from his own failings, which crushes Harry considering how carefully he ushered Kate into the fold.

As for Kate, I agree with r279 that she knows which side her bread his buttered and follows William’s lead. She doesn’t dislike Meghan but has not welcomed her into the family.

I bet the “Meghan made Kate cry after Charlotte’s dress fitting!” story was Kate crying because she was hormonal and pregnant. William/KP found implying Kate cried because Meghan yelled at staff/Charlotte a useful way of sabotaging the success of the Pacific tour.

William is slated to be king someday. It's gone to his head already. He was older (15) when Diana died and maybe he was able to see her and his parent's relationship more accurately than did Harry who was, what, 12 at the time? He also saw his father getting away with, if not murder, then at the very least very public adultery. I suspect he's considerably more cynical than Harry while at the same time seemingly more willing to exercise his [italic]droit du seigneur[/italic], so to speak, now that the matter of the heir and a spare is settled.

It's not about Meg. Despite the denials here and in the tabloid press, racism and xenophobia plain and simple are the biggest reasons she's getting shit on. Her family circus isn't a plus, but what would her new family do if they were loving, caring people? Not what they've done. Whether or not William let Megan take the heat to distract from his own issues is another matter, but he needs to be seen for what he is; another lazy, none too bright toff who has been raised to think the country is going to revolve around him sooner or later so he might as well get all the tail he can now.

Whether he was a shitty person to start with or became a shitty person for lack of anything better to do with his time and libido is irrelevant. If the story of his affair or affairs is true, William's a shitty person now and everyone around him is just collateral damage at this point.

So we now know the William cheating rumors are true. I don't blame Harry one bit! He deserves to be pissed; even Kate realizes it. William needs to eat some humble pie when he returns and try to make some kind of peace with Harry.

This article continues to be the most reasoned discussion of the matter, in my view. Is this Giles person really so important that his tweet confirming there was an affair, is what made KP shit their pants? I don't know a thing about him, aside from what I have read in the article below. Anyone care to fill me in, or is not worth the keystrokes?

"Coren’s intervention into the story came when, in response to one of the Rose/Kate “feud” pieces, he tweeted, “Yes, it is an affair. I haven’t read the piece but I know about the affair. Everyone knows about the affair, darling.”

It was an extraordinary allegation for a prominent newspaper staff writer to make on Twitter and it was swiftly deleted."

She didn’t leak it to the press obviously, r333 (at least I don’t think so). I took it to mean she told someone, possibly in confidence, and it leaked from there.

That makes no sense, R336. If she told a friend in confidence, she would surely want it to remain confidential. It's humiliating to Kate. What motivation would such a friend have? If a friend did that, she'd be exiled for life, or worse.

If I had to guess, and had to exclude MM, I would say it was either one of the turnip toff gals who secretly hated Kate or a palace servant who overheard Wills and Kate rowing about it.

While not his finest moment, it's not like William got caught eating a baby or whatever. He had an affair. Big fucking deal. They all do. It was how he handled it after being caught (going to the lawyers) that is tarnishing. It not only made him look guilty as fuck (and thus even more embarrassing for Kate) he came off looking like a spoiled, spastic little hot-head. Not very King like.

Unless this is the tip of one hell of an iceberg that we know nothing about (doubt it, again: Occam's razor), and the affair with Rose is being used distract from said iceberg (there isn't one, we are all just bored and want some drama) this is all going to fizz out sooner than later.

And yet, R340, I've read that she is still close with a group of her friends from school. I've also read that Rose and husband were entertained twice at Amer Hall and they hosted Kate and Will twice.

Lets talk about all the players.

Will = future King. He will skate by and will do what he wants. Public opinion may turn, but the public is fickle and he can them back with a couple of Diana events or something.

Kate = Queen Consort. If Will is not fucking her, then she doesn't have to put out. She'll take care of her kids, spend time with her family and be the Queen and do what she likes doing best -- nothing.

Harry = Is pissed at William, but he'll get over it and the brothers will bond again. They've had spats before. The difference between the two is that Harry has sewn his wild oats. He's partied and fucked and had his fun. He's with someone who likes what he likes and compliments him and now he wants to go and save the world. More power to him.

Meghan = By next year, she will have adjusted completely to royal life and the baby is going to get her all sorts of positive press. She'll probably pop out one more and then she and Harry will go around saving the world together. All of her negative press has been either family related or rookie mistakes, that she will overcome in time.

Rose - Now that she has been named. I would expect Meghan's negative press to move to Rose. And the press will be looking for ways to talk up the affair.

LOL, actually if it had been a £50 dress and not a £50,000, it would have been a lot more successful.

I don't know, perhaps the British public always has to have someone to demonise or something to whinge about, but the Sussexes made everyone think, "Better the devil you know." Boring they may be, but the Cambridges do not rub people's noses in their lavish lifestyles. Very rarely is anyone offended by Kate's attire at any event, similar to Queen Letizia. They also do not lecture people on how to live, apart from Wills banging on about conservation a day before he goes on a hunting trip.

Ok, I have a little gossip... not much, but my connection is sort of a six degrees of separation thing with someone close to William and Harry. People talk, and those people talk and before you know it, lots of people know stuff. There is a significant rift between William and Harry; the reason is indeed over MM. William was very wary of her, but he’s been openly antagonistic lately, and it was all after the NY baby shower. He’s not necessarily jealous that they get the attention—he’s even supportive of their proactive charity work—but he feels she’s not conforming to what he thinks a Royal should be (which is obviously more Kate-like). The other interesting thing is MM is liked by a lot of the family. She is very pleasant and fun to be around, and believe it or not, Harry loves her and she loves him. But the family are in line with William’s thinking, and are trying to help her conform more, which she’s willing to do.

This is the reason why she’s retreated for the birth.

William and Kate are still having troubles, but everyone is confident they’ll resolve them (remember, I only heard about the problems, I never heard directly about William’s cheating).

R402 is a response to the notion that fucking William is worthwhile because “Your child gets to become a prince. So some perks exist.”

1) he’s probably not going to divorce Kate, so most people who have sex with him are probably not going to get to see their illegitimate children become princes

2) especially if the illegitimate child is a girl

3) illegitimate children do not get to be princes or princesses

4) why would being the mother of a prince be particularly interesting anyway, especially in comparison to say being a queen

by Anonymousreply 40604/27/2019

What happens to a child under those circumstances? Would they even be considered royal, as in, they are accepted into the society of their posh friends? Not sure what happened the last time a high ranking member of the royal family had a bastard shown in the light. I've seen Monaco's process, but their Prince is a cray-cray.

I think there would be a big to-do if a mistress came forward to request a title for their child. The palace would attempt a payoff, but the public woulf probably side with the bastard. I mean is William's seed any less royal if it goes into another woman? BP and conservatives would never bend to that pressure, but a media-savvy woman could really harm William's popularity with such a scandal.

The bastard rule should be tossed into the dustpan, like the male precedence rule they scrapped. It's 2019, if the child is from the heir, then he or she should receive the same rights as all the other children.

If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
