It does make you wonder if all the other stories about Guy Pelly were ever true.

What an irresponsible article. The title implies that William was caught with drugs...buts its really his friend, who it appears was set up!

Isn't there a law for encouraging drug use? The so-called reporter should be prosecuted for supplying drugs and defamation of characters.

Perhaps they have a sign.
at a fashion show you can say 'do i smell chanel?' to get cocaine. (maybe Mary could test that some time).

seriously though, this is headline grabbing at its worst. with both William and Harry doing respectable things like jogging and marching all day long at Sandhurst they have to come up with nonsense like this to keep selling papers. they must have it very rough right now.

I again agree with you pollyemma.

Must be a real slow press these last few weeks. We hear about drugs, sex talk and marriage talk. I don't give any off theses press reports any validation.

Crumbs, I am so glad you told me.

If I said that to get drugs (which I wouldn't), someone would say, Yes it's No 5.

they assume guilty by association..which is stupid. they want people to think that if his close friends do drugs then Will has tried drugs or is doing drugs.

Well, I hope the story on post #114 is not true, because there is already a US company named Babykins. It has been around since 1986. So it may not go over well with the original Babykins company.

I don't think it matters if there is a company in another country. Companies House checks against it's list of companies in the UK.:)

Dump your pal, Wills urged

First they tell him who he can go out with, now it's who his friends can be!

William and Kate are just starting to get heat from reporters. I guess their love for pubs and being in public is going to change because of this situation. Boy I hope for the monarchy's survival this blows over.:)

There is no suggestion that William, Kate or Harry were buying or taking drugs.:)

From reading the various reports I still believe that Guy was handed a cigarette, took a puff from it before realising that:

1. It was wacky baccy
2. He was being photographed.

He has said he didn't know the girl who handed him the ciggy and had no reason to believe that it was not made from ordinary tobacco.

Love how the sun says it appears that none of the royals had anything to do with the drugs...but that's not what the Headline reads. What utter trash!

The tabloids are desperate because Will is at Sandhurst (not assessible to them) and they are not catching him in public with Kate either. Kate is being a clever girl and not giving them anything to write about either.

So in a desperate attempt they sent a reporter (pretending to be a drug dealer) to a pub where Will and gang were having a drink. And this pretty much links the supposed drug dealer to William and thats their story.

Totally bizzare!

The next silly story will probably be about William being within a 10 mile radius of a crime scene therefore is probably a suspected criminal.

You know I hear a lot of you saying that Kate is being clever and staying out of the lime light and not giving the media anything to write about, which I think is true, but at the same time find a little worrying. Sure, she should be quite and everything but I sure do hope that she changes. The royal family of britian according a poll taken when Camilla and Charled suggested that about 60% or more of the population really doesn't care that much about the royal family anymore. Blame Diana all you want, but I believe she is very big reason why America along with the rest of the world pays ANY attention to the royal family. She might have not brought the ideal press, but she brought much needed press to the family. Do you think if Diana was not the mother of William he would be THIS famous? I doubt it. So while we all agree that Kate is a clever girl for staying quite, which I agree with, I also feel that she is not capable of bringing any MORE press to the royal family, unlike Princess Mary. Mary brought attention of the media to her royal family, which you think about in the long run, is VERY clever. I just don't see Kate bringing that sort of attention to the family. She probably, IF she becomes princess, will be forgotten in the upcomming 3-5 years.:)

Imo a lot of William supporters do like him because he does remind them of his mother especially the facial features.

I think things will be very different for Will and Kate because they will make a very strong partnership and will be seen much more as a royal couple then a prince and a princess tied in a marriage. And so I think the press will be interested in them and I think once Will's married, they will focus on when they will have children and probably on Harry as well if he's not already married by then. :)

The truth is, the press and the BRF need each other.

I think it is also true that less people are interested in royalty in the UK. At least that is my impression. But I don't think there will ever be another Di, nor do I think anybody should try and create one either.

I think much of the population has watched the unhappy marriage of Will's parents unfold right infront of their eyes, so I guess many will be happy to see find a woman who he can grow old with. And from that perspective, they might appreciate Kate's discreetness.

Yes of course he would, in Britain.
Whilst members of some other countries only remember the celebrity factor of his mother, most of the British remember that Prince Charles, Queen Elisabeth & Prince Philips son, is the Royal parent that matters.
