I always find pregnancy rumours annoying - especially when they persist even after months of no visible signs - no matter which royal they're aimed at.

Well. I AM conservative, and I should never said she is intellectually defective. I think that one of the more effective rulers of the conservative world was...a woman: the Queen Victoria! If women remains women, no problem for them to be Queens or Empresses on their own. How more beatiful for a woman than becoming her country's mother?

I find the myth that embalming Diana's body meant nobody could know if she was pregnant or not. Pulease, anyone who knows the slightest basics of embalming knows that if she was, it'd still be as evident after embalming as before the time of death. So that annoys me. It also annoys me when people call the Queen German which is she isn't - she's European.

Well, cavity embalming involves a small incision just above the navel and pushes a trocar into the chest and stomach cavities to puncture the hollow organs and aspirate their contents. One could remove the "fetus" that way. I, though, too, do not believe she was pregnant. As for the queen, she has German ancestors and Scottish ancestors and English ancestors. What is the difference. Here in the States all our ancestors came from somewhere else and we are still Americans. She is British.

Oh, sorry. I should have clarified that I meant conservatives of the Imperial Household Agency and the Diet.

ANY of the rumours about royal children are especially awful. "HRH_________ is retarded, autistic, deaf, mute, blind....." You get the idea.

I completely agree with TLLK's post right above this. There is nothing more vile and despicable than the press picking on a child.


I also get sick of the "she's too thin, does she have an eating disorder" rumors, which seem to be especcially prevalent in the threads around the Mary, Crown Princess of Denmark, and Letizia, the Princess of Asturias.

You're right. Does anyone remember the amount of things said about Princess Amalia's eye (which was slightly desviated at first - I even heard/read the word 'cancer') or Princess Leonor's stain on the nose?

Leonor's hemangioma (birthmark) and all the related conversation filled up almost a full thread! The poor mods had to really police that issue to finally get back on topic. It's a little birthmark, who cares- she's happy, healthy, and that's what matters.

Definately Letizia having a eating disorder and King Juan Carlos and the Infantas hate Letizia.

Diana being pregnant when she died and Grace's car being driven by Stephanie before the crash.

The ones who annoyed me the most:
- Letizia being unable to become pregnant, and Queen Sofia not liking her
- Masako jealous of Kiko, or the other way round .

I get annoyed when anyone starts talking about one princess's or another's inability to have children. That's just stepping over the line of rudeness to me.

It gets on my nerves when some papers or people criticize one or another princess on either being too skinny and anorexic or too fat,it sounds they surely know everything ,when they do not really know anything

You know, it's idiots like those who participate in such criticism that cause people (famous or not) to have body image issues. Our society is obsessed with people being thin, but when someone gets 'too thin', all of a sudden the person is anorexic or what have you. It's disgusting. Media needs to acknowledge the fact that we're all built differently, and can't always measure up to the ridiculous standards.

Oh they are just too many...

- Diana being pregnant when she died
- Elena & Cristina hating Letizia
- Camilla intriguing against Kate
- Madeleine being pushed by her parents to break her engagement
- series of articles in german tabloids that Madeleine & William were dating, almost getting married, I think they were sued for this ones
- and basically anything the german tabloids write is either amusing or annoying, depends how far they get with it

Annoying: Prince Harry is Hewitts son!

You can totally see how Harry resembles Charles and Philipp. And it´s offensive against Diana.
