Camilla Tominey is the Express' resident 'bad cop' and her job is to bash the Cambridges. In fact she has never written a positive article about the couple. Think Amanda Platell at the DM.

Take everything Camilla Tominey writes with many grains of salt.

But to put this news on the front page is too extreme imo. I think express will be missing out on some important announcements from the royal couple in the near future.

Anyone with an ounce of critical thinking will realise William doesn't control anything at Sandringham.
The notion that William has the authority not to allow 100 staff to watch a movie because he has already seen it is laughable.
Just a silly tabloid article to wind up the Cambridge haters and to remind William the tabloid press in Britain is the real power in the country.

I don't have the history of reading British newspapers that some of you do, so I'm inclined to believe it when a number of you are posting that this is a payback article.

In any event, I have seen SkyFall and I'd see it again in a minute. And I can't see most people - including William - not wanting to see it a 2nd time, either.

The sad part of this is that there are many people who will believe this.

Fortunately BP, KP or SJP does not feel the need to address these ridiculous things. You cannot have an argument with yourself. There is no tit for tat on this type of article. There put out there, the RF ignores it, and it goes away quickly.

Also, as we al know, the scheduling of events at Sandringham are planned weeks, if not months in advance. William undoubtably knew long ago that he would not be in that ballroom. It takes planning to have a bar b que for many of the royal family at another location. This was not a what are we going to do tonight event. The more you think about it, the less since it makes, not the opposite.

The British are well aware of how the tabloids operate. For the Cambridge haters, it gives them an opportunity to moan and whine in the comments section.

The next time the Cambridges make a public appearance and 1000s of people are cheering and waving, the tabloids will be right back to kissing the couple's feet.

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.

At least they didn't give that piece of trash the title: "How Wills stole christmas". LOL.

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.
