He’s talking about when he and Gabriella was in their twenties and doing things that people in their twenties do. None of it can be surprising. Certainly, I’m not surprised by what he’s saying about Princess Michael of Kent. Her wearing that brooch, back in December, spoke volumes.

You can't help but feel sorry for Lady Gabriella. She has been one of the quietest, under the radar members of the Royal Family.

My first reaction to this was you dated her for 3 years and this is all you got on the royal family? Princess Michael has repeatedly embarrassed herself more. Also it was already known that her brother Frederick use to have a drug problem, so did friends of Harry, and that Harry had smoked pot. This to me implied what you know is what there is, with no bigger secrets in this family.

This story is getting crazier by the minute.

Right, some stuff we already know. We know about Gabriellas Mother, the drugs arent surprising and many people do swim nude in pools. Theres no real shock and major scandal here.

Its not always kind for a former flame to talk to the media though.

I had similar thoughts. It's like he wanted to write a tell-all book but barely had enough for a magazine spread. His timing questionable as well. If he wanted to talk about Princess Michael being racist, then he should have come forward in January.

On a side note, he mentions Lord Mountbatten put forth Marie-Christine as a potential bride for Prince Michael. Was this actually an arranged match? How did Prince and Princess Michael get together, and would this be a story they would share with their daughter's boyfriend?

Maybe he was aiming for Gabriella's birthday? She turned 37 this week.

Like all of you, i feel sorry for Ella to be caught up in this 'kiss and tell'. She dodged a bullet with Taseer. I hope she gets past this.

Off-topic posts have been deleted. The British Royal Family: Race & Racism thread is a more appropriate thread to discuss issues of race/racisim and the Royal Family.

Freddie Windsor never had a drug 'problem'. He took some coke but never had a problem with drugs.

rather inconsiderate of him to air such details. however, i must admit i found the article rather entertaining - he is quite open about the RF and how it felt to penetrate that circle, so it is refreshing to read him. on the other hand, i am sure ella and family did not appreciate details such as them swimming naked or doing ecstasy being public.

Gabriella has always striked me as a sensible and reserved woman - the complete opposite of what this man describes. Methinks he is in a difficult economic situation and is using this story to make money (or, as others have suggested, he is giving the interview to reinforce his vendetta for Princess Michael). The whole situation is in very poor taste and Im glad Gabriella is no longer seeing him. Even if the story is true, what happened over 10 years ago should be irrelevant today. Im sure Gabriella, like many of us, have changed since then.

Yeah, hes just describing the stuff they did in their twenties. Although, its bad taste for him to spill it to the media, none of it is shocking to me.

When are these two going to get engaged? Their romance goes on and on but never to the next level.

They've been together four years.
I'm surprised they haven't gotten engaged in that time.

(He seems much nicer than her previous sleazy BF).

The ex boyfriend came off as rather nice before he decided to sell Gabriella out after the fact.

Her parents seemed to like him.

Yes, but Tom is a much safer bet not to talk even if he and Gabriella split. He's in that social circle (unlike her ex). He's been best friends with Pippa for several years and has remained discreet and loyal to her. Also the career differences, the ex is a writer which lends to looser lips.

Plus there were some early warning signs. Aatish seemed to enjoy the spotlight he and Ella were photographed together numerous times, red carpets etc. The couple even posed for the cover of Hello! Magazine. With Tom things are much more under the radar. They are only photographed together 3-4 times a year and it's usually at low-key society events. Their biggest public outing was attending his BFF Pippa's wedding together, 3 years into their romance.

So I don't think it's fair to Tom to say "Well, you never know. Look what happened with Aatish."

Yes, but I wonder if his true allegiance is to Pippa?
Everyone else seems almost like an afterthought, no?
