The British press (with the exception of the Telegraph/Times) has no limits to what they write anymore, and most of it must be taken with a large pinch of salt.

Yes, but that was in the 1980s. Now we live in a completely different world where garbage such as this is being discussed over the internet. And the worst thing is that many people actually believe in it.

But , as you say there always has to be the heroine and the villain. Do you remember some of the so called quotes from Diana about Sophie ?

I agree, other than at the end of Diana's life, there was not a suggestion of friction between them, just endless and unpleasant comparisons.

I do remember them suggesting friction between Sophie and Diana. And not just things Diana was alleged to have said about Sophie but vice versa.

The media will always write about Catherine being at odds with her female in-laws. For some reason they like writing about jealousy feeling between them all. This same thing was done to Diana, Anne and Sarah.

I haven't clicked on the article as I have long since banned the vile Daily Fail, but I very much doubt there is any antagonistic relationship between the three women.

For one thing, James Middleton and Eugenie are good pals. I doubt he would be friends with someone who wasn't nice to his sister.

That being said I doubt Catherine is all that close to them. There is an age difference and a lifestyle difference, with them all having different sets of friends. And most importantly, as William doesn't seem to be all that close to the Yorks, it not surprising that Catherine probably has spent little time with them. Whereas Harry is very close to the Yorks, so both Chelsy and Cressida were good friends with them. The latter's friendship with the Yorks predating her romance with Harry.

It all seems to be logical family dynamics to me.

Relationships between Members of the British Royal Family

William is 6 and 8 years older than his York cousins. Naturally, he is closer to Zara and Peter. Zara is only a year older than William. Ten year William isn't going to want to play with a 4 and 2 year Bea and Eugiene. Harry is in the middle. He could tag along with his older cousins and brother and then be the big cousin for Bea and Eugiene .

That's right. The majority of these stories about Kate and the Yorks have been around for years. I don't think Kate or William are close to the Yorks. Unlike Harry, even in their single days they didn't go clubbing with them. Nowadays they all lead completely different lives and there is also an age gap.

But that's OK, nobody has to be best friends with each other within the Royal Family. Some members may not like each other very much and that's all right too. So long as each member is polite and cordial to everyone when they meet (especially in public) it doesn't matter.

By the way, IMO the term 'flawless Kate', was used in this article of the DM's as a form of sarcasm.

Indeed, age gap appears to be a strong factor. Let's look at the three cousins the Cambridges chose for godparents of their children.
Zara Tindall- 1 year older.
Laura Pettman- 2 years older.
Adam Middleton- 1 year older.
These are the people they grew up with, and have the most in common with.

If that is frosty then Eugenie deserves a BAFTA, Oscar, etc..for best actress.

They caught a pix of Eugenie with a certain look on her face and had to make up a story to go with it.
Probably Beatrice said something to Eugenie causing the reaction & most likely it had nothing to do w/ the garden party, Queen, Catherine or William.

I thought that this was a pretty nicely written article about the bond between Harry and Kate. It says a lot for the stability of relationships. Being an article from the Daily Mail, I almost didn't click on it as I was thinking it to be another ghastly, innuendo filled, bird cage liner type article inciting rumors that Harry and Kate are anything but what they really are.

What I do see between these three is stability and a closeness that comes with trusting, relying on and being there for family. William didn't only gain a wife but Harry also gained a sister in the best sense of the word. These three will remain the Three Musketeers throughout the rest of their lives and lean on and depend on and rely on each other as a team to see them forward.

How can they lose when they're so sincere?

Really? Maybe I should dare to read it.

Go for it.. take that chance. Hold your nose and jump in at the deep end.

I do have to say it did surprise me but then again I don't hold the Daily Mail in a very high regard as far as journalistic talent goes.
