Oh WOW. Okay, thank you for the info. And believe me, there are plenty of American publications that are no better!!! Not bashing either country or journalists, just saying nothing new under the sun unfortunately!!!

That hasn't been my experience with the Daily Mail. Much maligned as it is, all the comments I have made, whether agreeing or disagreeing with the topic of the article and the general mood of the other commentators, they have always been published. And not all articles are moderated.

Thank you EIIR for your reasonable post. I have been wondering when someone would mention the extended holidays of the Queen and the DOE (not that I resent it AT ALL), I've just been struck by the fact that there is little or no criticism for these extended holidays. Few people get to experience that much "time off". And as you noted they have been doing so for years.

It is my opinion FWIW that it has more to do with the sun, sand and sea than the holidays (or the skiiing). One has to wonder how much jealousy would take place IF the holidays were all in the misty north.

Unfortunately for will & Kate I think they will always have any time away from the press criticized as the paps need to report something. The awful reality is that Will, Kate and Harry sell papers..... If they can't report on what they are doing (even Starbucks runs, walking the dog) then they will report on the fact that they are absent....and make as sensational a story as they need. I don't envy that life at all.

My experience has been very different. My comments though were not agreeing or disagreeing with the article, they were to correct obvious factual errors that could so easily have been noticed and fixed before publishing. The DM, IMO, definitely does not like to be told it has its facts wrong.

^^Well, my experience with dailymail's coment is quite short: I only commented once and was to answer a question asked in another comment about a fact somehow relevant to the piece but that DM convenientely forgot to mention. Guess what, my comment was never published.
In any case, I've read comments that disagree with the piece they wrote and have been published, so despite the fact that the rules to publish or not a comment are quite subjective and the moderators may be biased, I don't think it's true that they just publish things that agree with what they wrote

Among the most recent comments I made was one on a Richard III article. DM wrote that Richard III's descendants were traced down and their DNA was compared to that of their ancestor. I pointed out that Richard III had no descendants (that we know of) and that the DNA sample was in fact taken from the female-line descendants of his sister, Anne of York. The comment was published and the error - corrected.

I guess experiences do vary and I probably have just been lucky.

DM comments everyone seems to outraged at everything. Almost every article I read the comments are negative.

I think that was because you pointed out a salient and important fact critical to the nature of the story that the DM felt it necessary to correct. Awhile ago, I made a comment on the forum regarding a DM headline that was incorrect (can't remember the details), and the correction was made, obviously because staff read our comments here. That was an interesting experience!

Now had Richard's son Edward lived and had children and further progeny, then we're talking descendants!

Okay....time to move on from the discussion on commenting on the Daily Mail or other newspapers.

GOOD LORD! Will these 2 come home and do something quick so this rant about the holiday can be forgotten?
What's Lupo been up to?

That's a good point we haven't seen the pooch in a while. We will next see Catherine, at least, in 10 days time.

Don't think they're going to tell us that.

Don't encourage the trolls, Xenia! Next thing we know there'll be articles on the DM, quickly followed by the usual suspects here, suggesting that Lupo is neglected and/or only trotted out for some good PR.

Mustique is probably the best place the Cambridges can go for a holiday. It's a private island and photographers are not allowed to come ashore; which means the very few photos we've seen of them while in Mustique are so blurry that no paper would run them. We tend to see photos only when they leave the island to get their plane home.

Think about it - they got no privacy in a large private estate in France, none on their honeymoon in the Seychelles, none on their holiday in Ibiza several years ago. Unless they hole themselves up at Balmoral or Sandringham, they can't get any break from the press. Other royals can go on holiday in the US or Asia etc. and not be recognised. Will and Kate don't have that luxury.

perhaps holing up in Sandringham or Balmoral is the onnly answer. I feel so sorry for these two.

So the photos are apparently legit though they were first thought to be from years ago. Her bump is apparently clearly visible in the shots
Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor The Sunday People has chosen not to view the pictures and, like the rest of the British media, will not publish them.
Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor
Baby bump Kate hols pics are likely to spark a bidding war in the US, Australia and Europe - but unlikely to be published in the UK.
Robert Jobson ‏@theroyaleditor Other pics taken on Will & Kate Mustique holiday are understood to feature her sister Pippa in a bikini.

The new pictures show Kate, 31, walking in the surf with her husband Prince William on hols in Mustique.
