There isn't a good place for it because there really isn't one. Its the kind of thing that doesn't warrant being repeated. IMO of course.

I think it's information worth knowing on royal forums when the person who said it is the US President, someone likely to meet William and Kate in an official capacity at some point.

Actually, the statement was made back at the time that the photographs were printed long before Trump threw his hat in the ring to run for President. It has absolutely no bearing whatsoever on his position as President of the United States and the diplomatic relationship between the US and the UK.

That statement by Trump was issued on September 17, 2012. It does not reflect him in his role as president in my book.

Personal views of people in government and diplomatic roles that have been expressed publicly are part of the historical record and go into evaluating relationships between public figures.

I'm not suggesting everyone freak out and see this tweet from 2012 as a threat to US/UK diplomatic relationships, merely suggesting that it's a degrading thing to have said, especially by a current US president about a current senior member of the royal family, and that it might one day make state dinner conversation a bit awkward.

I suppose you have a point there. It happens every now and then just like each time there is something going on with China, the media will dig up the statement that Charles made calling the Communist Chinese leaders in 1997 "appalling old waxworks". Come to think of it, Charles even sued the Mail over it. Then again, Charles' comments were made, I believe, in private whereas Trump's were on social media.

https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...blishing.china

I don't think, however, it will make for any kind of an awkward situation. It was an off the cuff remark made by a man that most likely didn't know the extent of the furor over the photographs and like millions of other men, appreciate the female form.

Perhaps that is another big detriment to being so focused on by the public and the media. Don't do anything at all and you're lazy and boring. Any little thing you think, do or say that can be twisted around against you will never be forgotten. Such is life in a fishbowl.

I think it's time to drop it, because the topic won't go anywhere.

Eh- it appears that a few writers are picking up on it- that tweet circulated earlier today.

Yes, I know. I just think it should be dropped here. Some folks like when he talk nasty and some folks don't like it all. So it'll just lead to an endless and senseless debate.

I don't think the "Kate Effect" triggered the brands downfall, but the designer bringing in Camilla Al-Fayed helped bring it down.

I agree. Sure, the fast interest is hard to handle, but selling a majority share to a person in direct contradiction with what gave you that boost was a bad buissness decision.

When did Kate stop wearing Issa? Was it right after the engagement or further along ? Once Kate becomes engaged, she has access to more higher end designers.

She wore it in Canada and such. She stopped wearing it when Issa got a new owner which is related to Dodi (I think Dodi's father blamed the royal family for Dodis death and called Phillip Nazi and stuff)

So last year, it announced that only William will attend. William who is the actual royal colonel of the Irish Guards. The Irish Guards didn't have a British royal as its colonel until William so that why other royals had to give out the shamrocks. Then after the event happens there is massive media outrage that Kate did not attend and broke a unbroken line of royal women passing out the shamrocks.
Nice and all as it must be to have a Royal female - be it of blood, like Anne or marriage like Kate do the presenting, I'm guessing the guys were more than happy to have William do the honours! If I was a member I know I would!
