I know in Britain social media is having a big effect. When Charles and Camilla went to the Balkans this year, I think one newspaper reporter went along

In the 'old days' this would mean no news or photos but because the British royals have a strong social media game, Clarence House was able to keep us up to date with Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Lovely photos and videos. My wife cried at Charles's speech as if she were in the room.

So social media does play a role in how the royals are covered in the press

I stumbled on this at Getty today. It's quite amusing. If Royals Worked. If Royals Worked | Getty Images

Well, Carole Malone seems to have enjoyed the Cambridge Royal Tour-

Thanks, Dman.

Well, the first line reads: Is there anyone out there who’s been remotely interested in Kate and William’s trip to India ?

How many links to just the Danish press covering this visit would you like me to post? Twenty? Thirty?
The coverage is not as high as if it was the SRF or NRF though but W&K (and Harry) come in as a close third on this visit.
BB had a large feature in this weeks magazine issue and will have a large feature next week as well.

As for the rest of the column, well...

If no one was interested why did the reporters send all those reporters and photographers? Basically none went with C&C and a handful with Harry. However, everybody was there for India and Bhutan.

THE MEDIA? if this tour was not a photographers banquet what was? and the Cambridges and their hosts made this a visually interesting tour - not the media... they just photographed the event.

She was not on the tour and the Mirror reporter who did go said it was a great tour. I'll try and find the link to that report.

I've come to the conclusion that some members of the media don't know what they want out of the new generation of Windsors.

You can't take Carole Malone seriously. This is a woman who often sits on Sky News Press Preview and criticizes William and Kate for the most ridiculous things. She said during the Diamond Jubilee that the monarchy will be finished after the Queen's death. And she also criticized William and Kate last year for not talking to the press outside the hospital when Charlotte was born.

Worse, they don't want to know.

A biased journalist is IMO a worthless journalist.

This will come as a surprise to no one but it highlights just how disgusting British tabloid 'journalism' really is.

It tells the time when William and Catherine took a holiday without Prince George. The Daily Mail ran a story about how Twitter and even Mumsnet readers were outraged W&K had left George at home.

But, Mumsnet only linked to the story after it was contacted by the DM to do so and Mumsnet readers weren't outraged. When Munsnet protested the story wasn't accurate, the DM removed it from online.

Little wonder all the BRF, not just W&K keep the press at arms length

I don't have any words for this:
David Icke attracts ridicule after saying the Royal Family are shape-shifting lizards live on TV – Royal Central
Quote:
Writer and conspiracy theorist, David Icke, raised eyebrows this week, after saying that the Royal Family are shape-shifting lizards live on national television.

Speaking on the BBC political show, This Week, Mr Icke came head to head with presenter, Andrew Neil, over his rather bizarre beliefs.

When Mr Neil asked whether he thought the Royal Family were shape-shifting lizards, the Mr Icke said: “Yes I do.”

Mr Neil responded: “If you also think that Buckingham Palace is inhabited by lizards, it kind of undermines you.”

Icke denied this though, saying: “If you deliver it in one line, the world’s run by reptiles, you go ‘that’s crazy’ – immediate reflex action,” he said.

“But when you see the back story and the evidence to support this, ancient modern, you see that throwaway line in a completely different context.”

Mr Icke is a believer of a conspiracy theory that 13 historical families, including the royals, were shape-shifters who run the world’s finances, politics, and religion.

Before he became known for his beliefs, David Icke was a household name as a presenter of the BBC’s flagship sports show Grandstand. He later caused public hysteria in 1991 when he said he was the “Son of the Godhead”.

Whilst he was on the show, Mr Icke was also asked whether he believed 9/11 was an inside job.

He replied: “Of course it was. There is a network that works through government agencies, through organisations like the CIA, to push an agenda on the world which is unfolding by the day.”

Even more concerning is that there are people who believe this guy.

He is also behind the kidnapped Canadian children allegations against the Queen and Philip and a range of other conspiracies.

Basically he needs some help but ...

... there's fools born every minute that buy into his spiel, it puts money in the bank for him and besides that, its sensationalism and so very much more shiny and interesting than droll everyday facts.

British paper's 'Queen backs Brexit' headline misleading, press watchdog rules

A headline in Britain's top-selling newspaper The Sun claiming that the "Queen backs Brexit" was significantly misleading, press regulator IPSO ruled on Wednesday, although the paper stood by its story.

I'm very surprised that he's lost this as well.
