    To me, this is the crux. When Harry and Meghan needed support (even if they'd created the need themselves), the future King should have led my example and helped the situation. Instead he remained silent and looked grumpy. Suck it up and lead something.

    He didn't remain silent. They had that big showdown at Sandringham. William and Harry attended. Meghan was in Canada. I forget who else was there - the Queen or her representative, Charles or a representative. And that was just what the press was told. There were months of negotiation and demands.

    Silent to the public (for clarity). No matter William's true feelings he could have stepped up. No decision is a decision and in turn no support is as telling and then it was picked up in the press and has not been disputed.

    Anything would have helped, even a general positive comment or two during a public engagement. But instead he turned his back and let the daily onslaught against his younger brother and sister in law bury the tales of his wandering dick and inflate his own position in the press.

    I wonder if some of it was also jealousy and insecurity. Compared to Harry William is something of a stuffed grey suit and is, by his own admission, inclined to be petulant. Pre-Meghan Harry's popularity had eclipsed William's and people thought he was more open and warm and, of course, it simply does not do to have the younger brother outshining the future King, damn it! And then the Hate Train rolled into the station and suddenly William is a steadfast and dependable chap, just the sort of Royal we want, and Kate is the perfect Duchess and Future Queen and not at all like that dreadful other one... And so Harry was thrown under the ego bus.

    It's no so much what's wrong with William himself. It's everything that comes with being married to him and a part of this life and family/business.

    Id agree with this except that William is not handsome AT ALL. He is unattractive. On top of that he absolutely comes off as a spoiled, entitled brat.

    Note: He had a few short window in which he was on the hot side but he hit the wall at 300 MPH and that was that.

    And that's just it. Harry's rebellion to his family and The Firm is that he wasn't willing to be the fall guy any longer, and he sure as he wasn't willing to let his non-aristocratic, black wife shoulder the racism and classism that was aimed at her. He was done being a distraction for Pedo Uncle Andrew and William's Wandering Willy.

    For the record I know plenty of Royalists that do not think that anyone (inc the RF) should cheat ona spouse.

    I don't find him undesirable. I'm sure he has his faults, but don't we all?

    Kate and William to sue Tatler over 'cruel, sexist and woman-shaming' article

    By Emily Andrews Royal Editor For The Mail On Sunday 17:00 EDT 30 May 2020 , updated 18:32 EDT 30 May 2020
    8hrs ago


    The Duke and are understood to be taking legal action against society bible Tatler magazine after it published a 'string of lies' about Kate.
    In a highly unusual move, the couple have sent legal letters to the magazine demanding its profile of the Duchess – headlined 'Catherine the Great' – be removed from the internet.
    It comes after Kensington Palace issued a fiercely critical statement on last week's article which it said contained a 'swathe of inaccuracies and false representations'.

    The Duke and Duchess are also said to be upset about criticism of her family, her children and her weight. The pair are pictured above in March The palace is particularly 'furious' about claims that Kate feels 'exhausted and trapped' by the increased workload following Harry and Meghan's decision to step back.
    The Duke and Duchess are also said to be upset about criticism of her family, her children and her weight.
    The article, written by author Anna Pasternak, makes reference to the eating disorders suffered by William's mother Princess Diana, saying: 'Kate has become perilously thin, just like – some point out – Princes Diana.'
    A Royal source told The Mail on Sunday: 'That is such an extremely cruel and wounding barb. It's disgusting. It's sexist and woman-shaming at its very worst.
    'The piece is full of lies. There is no truth to their claim that the Duchess feels overwhelmed with work, nor that the Duke is obsessed with Carole Middleton. It's preposterous and downright wrong.
    'The whole thing is class snobbery at its very worst. The stuff about [Kate's sister] Pippa is horrible. Tatler may think it's immune from action as it's read by the Royals and on every coffee table in every smart home, but it makes no difference.

    The palace is particularly 'furious' about claims that Kate feels 'exhausted and trapped' by the increased workload following Harry and Meghan's decision to step back 'It's ironic that the Royals' favourite magazine is being trashed by them. The Duchess is a naturally shy woman who is doing her best.'
    Tatler's article also claims that Kate, 38, had a spat with Meghan Markle ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.
    It says the clash took place at a rehearsal two days before the big day and centred on whether Princess Charlotte and the other young bridesmaids should wear tights.
    Quoting an unnamed friend, the article says: 'There was an incident at the wedding rehearsal. It was a hot day and apparently there was a row over whether the bridesmaids should wear tights or not.
    'Kate, following protocol, felt that they should. Meghan didn't want them to. The photographs suggest that Meghan won.' But Kensington Palace insists the story is wrong.
    Instead, The Mail on Sunday understands that the fall-out was over Meghan's reaction to Kate's request that the hem of Charlotte's dress be lengthened. The resulting row left Kate in tears.

    Tatler's article also claims that Kate, 38, had a spat with Meghan Markle ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018. The four are pictured above on Commonwealth Day in March The profile takes aim at Kate's taste and her family, sneeringly describing the Cambridges' Anmer Hall home in Norfolk as 'very Buckinghamshire'.
    'Carole has put her stamp on Anmer decor-wise,' it claims. 'Far from being a typical aristo abode, with threadbare rugs and dog hair everywhere, like, say, Windsor and Balmoral, it is, according to a visitor, 'like a gleaming five-star hotel, with cushions plumped and candles lit'.'
    It also labels Mrs Middleton 'a terrible snob' and snipes at Kate's younger sister Pippa as 'too regal and try-hard... A bit lost now and is struggling to find her place'.
    To the anger of Kensington Palace, Ms Pasternak asserts that the Cambridges feel very tired because they have been forced to take on more Royal duties after Megxit.
    The article cites a source as saying: 'Kate is furious about the larger workload… She feels exhausted and trapped. She's working as hard as a top CEO, who has to be wheeled out all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and plenty of holidays.'
    But figures in the Court Circular, the official record of Royal engagements, suggest otherwise.

    To the anger of Kensington Palace, Ms Pasternak asserts that the Cambridges feel very tired because they have been forced to take on more Royal duties after Megxit The couple have done a similar number of jobs from January to March as they did over the same period last year. Kate has actually done less – 29 this year against 35 in 2019.
    In a statement issued after the article was published, Kensington Palace said: 'This story contains a swathe of inaccuracies and false misrepresentations which were not put to Kensington Palace prior to publication.'
    Hitting back, Tatler then issued its own statement, saying: 'Tatler's Editor-in-Chief Richard Dennen stands behind the reporting of Anna Pasternak and her sources.
    'Kensington Palace knew we were running the 'Catherine the Great' cover months ago and we asked them to work together on it. The fact they are denying they ever knew is categorically false.'
    The Mail on Sunday understands that Tatler approached Kensington Palace in February to ask if Kate would pose for their cover or provide an exclusive cover photo.
    That request was politely declined and it is understood that Kensington Palace was not offered the chance to comment on the specific content of Ms Pasternak's article.
    Tatler did not respond to a Mail on Sunday request for comment and Kensington Palace declined to comment.
    Author’s distinguished heritage


    The article, written by author Anna Pasternak, makes reference to the eating disorders suffered by William's mother Princess Diana, saying: 'Kate has become perilously thin, just like – some point out – Princes Diana' Anna Pasternak made her name with the 1994 book Princess In Love – about Princess Diana’s affair with cavalry officer James Hewitt.
    The writer comes from an illustrious family. Her great-grandfather Leonid Pasternak was an impressionist painter, her great-uncle Boris, a Nobel prize-winning novelist, her grandmother Josephine, a philosopher, while her father Charles is an Oxford scientist.
    A ‘self-confessed elitist snob’, the author has been publicising her new book The American Duchess: The Real Wallis Simpson which draws parallels with the Duchess of Sussex.
    Pasternak, 53, was educated at Christ Church College, Oxford, and after her divorce from Old Etonian William Coles, published a tit-for-tat diary of their divorce.
    With her second husband, therapist Andrew Wallas, 63, she wrote a relationship book Call Off The Search, in which she told of her desperate yearning for a man to share her life.
    The couple live in Oxfordshire with her 16-year-old daughter Daisy.

    of course the biddies will bitch about this and how it's disgraceful because royals aren't supposed to engage and behave like grubby commoners, just like they did when harry and meghan sued the tabloids for publishing a private letter? piers morgan will cry about censorship on air while shaking his fist at the sky? right?

    I’m just so confused. I thought the royals were supposed to have these stiff upper lips and ignore mean lies that the tabloids and articles print? It’s almost like there are two sets of standards that apply to these people, but... I guess I just don’t understand the culture.

    Piers is too busy gloating over Meghan and Harry being relegated to obscurity because of the pandemic. Or something like that.
