I just hate it when they do royal visits together!!! [Grumpy]
I think that's a personal issue for you. Most of us find it delightful watching the two brothers work together, and really enjoy seeing how all three of them get along and like each other. Their trip to the Harry Potter set was one of my favorite royal engagements of all time. And their video for their new mental health initiative was completely delightful.

This is some of the stupidest things I've ever heard. TRF is really starting to turn in to the Daily Mail comments section.

Sadly there are many people who see the relationship between William and Harry as a competition - even suggesting, on other sites, that the brothers no longer get along, that Kate is always flirting with Harry and that William doesn't object to that as William can't stand Kate anymore.

They are always arguing that even when William and Kate are photographed together looking lovingly that it is a PR exercise.

Rather than consider the fact that both Diana and Charles encouraged the boys to be close, raised Harry to be a supporter for his older brother and really wanted them to be a team together (as in a way Elizabeth and Margaret were even after Philip joined the trio - not that Margaret did many official engagements with them in the early years of the marriage and then The Queen ascended the throne but that wasn't the pln which was that the two sisters would work together a lot in the reign of George VI as he aged - exactly the plan that is coming to fruition with William, Harry and Kate).

William is very popular according to the polls, with Harry just ahead of him and Kate just behind but the Kate and/or William haters keep saying things like 'The Queen and Charles area planning ways to remove William from the line of succession' etc so that Harry can be King.

The reality is that William and Harry are still very close, Harry enjoys the company of his brother and sister-in-law, niece and nephew, and that in time, if Harry marries then the two couples will do things together.

Members of the Royal Family do not carry out engagements together for the purpose of boosting (or indeed diminishing) one another's popularity.

I always find it useful to remember that not everything in life (royal life or otherwise) is a PR exercise.

You took the words right out of my mouth Jack.

These people work for the same Firm, have the same goals and most of all, they're a family. There's no competition whatsoever. One thing is obvious and that is William and Harry are quite close as brothers.

I never know where to put the William and Harry stuff. It's not a current event per se but could become one I suppose. (if true)

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Bear said: "Prince Harry and William are great. We've met on a few occasions especially with championing the conservation stuff in China. We've done a few projects there. I'm a big fan of them.

We definitely have a TV thing in the pipeline but we're keeping that under wraps at the moment. It's very exciting.''

Heaven forbid. I never seem to understand the 'Harry is being used' argument. He's a member of the RF, he does engagements for the Firm not himself or his own popularity. Honestly, as if this were some high school superlative competition.

Reminds me of the "my dog is better than your dog" kind of thing between humans while the pooches happily go around sniffing butts, chasing sticks and doing what dogs do. Silly humans.

The date on the 'text message' from the FLOTUS was displayed as April 27th, however cellphone dates can be manipulated.

It is possible the Invictus challenge was created the week before when the Obamas were in London/Windsor.

The set-up could have occurred during the meeting at KP Apt. 1A. The filming of both segments may also have occurred in the U.K.

What does any of that matter? I don't think anyone's saying that the videos and messages were completely spontaneous and thought of at exactly the same time on both sides of the Atlantic. We know that all concerned are busy people and some setting up and coordination must have occurred.
What matters though is that the message about the Games got out, the way it was done was very cute and that it gave everyone a giggle.

Exactly. It was very well done social media content and got a good laugh and some nice headlines for a worthy cause.

I think that those people spreading such gossip are not even British or Commonwealth members because at least they understand the monarchy enough to know that the heir is the heir!

Have any of you been close enough to understand how this happens? Does the press lurk behind the where the Queen is speaking to people and then once the Queen moves on walk up to those people and ask what she said? I'm assuming that is how they get the reports this quickly?

Basically yes;

Here is a video and you can see a cameraman in the top right hand corner.

I did not really care about the texting thing. Sadly, social media today brings each person's life as though they are now on a reality show that exists only in their minds. I thought it quite distasteful and vulgar for the Queen to lower herself to that "hip hop"esque level with Prince Harry. I expect it of the others on this side, but not them. Do not let the daylight in to a certain extent should apply. I applaud Prince Harry for what he is doing for the Veterans, he deserves all the support...but not like that with the use of text messages in such a low class brow manner. Sadly the other two forget, Royalty gives you friendliness, not friendship.

I'm inclined to agree with you.
I didn't care for the whole "joshing" informality; and to be honest I don't think I even grasped what the two sides meant by their words or gestures.
(I don't think I'm in the target audience )
