Artilcles like that are just page fillers. The royal news is slow at the moment. The royals are away and resting up right now so the press decides to play around with the royal stories. The royals have been dealing with this stuff for years and they kinda expect it to happen.

Yup, looks like a petty revenge article- the press is getting irked at how limited their access to Kate is.

I expected that to happen after Christmas photo debacle.

That article is so silly. Since those movies aren't even on dvd yet, how were they able to get a copy of Twilight one hour before the screening? And there is no way that the Queen would let William or anyone else ruin movie night for her staff.

But here's where the article falls apart. The staff were supposedly looking forward to watching the movie with the Queen and the rest of the royals, yet the article states that the family were at a BBQ. So did the Royals blow them off? Why weren't the staff disappointed that the Queen and the other royals didn't show up? Why place the blame solely on William?

The whole article sounds completely made up. I mean, Twilight...really?

Camilla Tominey, the woman who wrote an article about how not knowing a dog names was this century equivalent of the abdication crisis.

Last year she said that the Cambridge and the Midds were in Scotland with Charles for New Year (Her social climber article), she doesn't know what she's talking about

You are right
She's always fancying stories.
They were in Bucklebury for the New Year and there are pics to prove it

I remember one of the interviews the Duke of Edinburgh gave on his 90th bday and the interviewer asked him what he thinks about the press coverage the Royal Family receives, and basically the Duke said the press in Britain is free and they're going to print whatever they like so you can't live your life worrying about the tabloids. He said you just to live your life and allow the public to decide what is fair and what isn't.
I think William realises this as well and isn't going to be held hostage by the tabloids.

Maybe the next story will be that they had a Rave at BP on New Year's Eve.

I'm and American and don't catch all of your papers and such online. Why does she have an axe to grind? Just curious...

Not a legitimate axe to grind. Camilla Tominey is the reporter the Express sends out to bash the Cambridges. She fills the role that Katie Nicholl and Amanda Platell fill at the Daily Mail.
Camilla Tominey is a closet republican and never passes up a chance to bash on William and Catherine. You would never see Richard Palmer write an article like this.

Don't start me it's like my breakfast every single day. I love it actually I love any kind of cheese tbh. And considering my body has protein loss it's an even better excuse to have it So then looks like the couple went back to Berkshire well atleast they went and visited the rest of the family even if the stay was short.

ETA: It prob is Catherine check out this tweet

Jade Armitage ‏@jade_sinclair @cinnamonqueen88 seriously! 2 land rovers pulled up & she jumped out with a bodyguard, into the petrol station! She's beautiful.

I always say there's not many foods that aren't improved by the addition of cheese or chocolate!

Hmmm...a few more digs at William & Kate in this Daily Mail article?

Well at least Sophie got to ride to church today with HM - so a tradition continues.
