When there is so much written about the Middletons cashing in on their royal connection (even you their not making a penny out of it) why doesn't Tom Parker Bowles get the same treatment. His new cooking show is about to start here in Australia he is promoted as the next Queen of England's son. I doubt anyone here would have ever heard of him so cashing in on his royal connection big time.

There are alot of double standards around the Cambridges and Middletons. Like your example. Or when William made a lighthearted joke that some took offence to he was not fit to be king and have no connection to his people but when Phillip rudely swore to a photographer doing his job he was "a classic Phillip" and "it's refreshing to have someone telling the truth". There are alot of double standards generally. Kate is accused of dressing boring... what about William and his blue suits? :P

The fact is that he is, indeed, the son of the next Queen of England (and of Australia, NZ ........). Tom is very aware of the public interest in his mother, and has always been very careful of what he says. The only bit he does really talk about is his mothers roast chicken recipe.

But he is using his royal connections to earn money and I don't care if he's nice or not he gets a free pass to promote his RC.
Carole Middleton is the grandmother of the future king of England but all hell would break loose if she sold her party pieces using that title

As I said before is selling his show as the future Queen of England's son if Carole was selling her party pieces as " party pieces by the grandmother of the future king of England " she would be torn to shreds.

Actually I don't see it as Tom Parker-Bowles hanging onto Camilla's coat tails to promote his new cooking show but rather the show's promoters themselves latching onto that little tidbit of information for PR reasons.

This type of career is something that Tom has built up over a long time and IIRC, he's never used any kind of connection to further his career. He doesn't need to. He's good at what he does on his own merits.

Wait, is he calling deliberately himself "the son of the future queen of England" or is it a teasing from the press (like for the Middletons) ?

On the official website of the show , he's seen as "food critic".
http://www.9jumpin.com.au/show/the-h...-the-hotplate/

Anyway i will agree on the fact that there's a clear double standard regarding the Middletons. ...

He has had RC all his life so who knows if he would have had the great career if he didn't. If he is so good he shouldn't need to push his RC. Carole started her business long before William came into their lives and a golly good business it has been

It's not from the press it's a ad for HIS show that runs on the station

Very valid point. Is it Tom that is using his royal connections, or is it the press (or the producers) making a point?

There's, indeed, a mention to his royal relatives in his profile on the show's website.


Tom Parker Bowles | The Hotplate | 9Jumpin


Tom Parker Bowles is one of Britain’s best known and most respected food writers and critics.



He writes a weekly restaurant column in the UK’s Mail on Sunday and is the food editor at Esquire magazine. Tom also contributes to GQ and Tatler.
In 2014 he was named Restaurant Reviewer of the Year by the UK Guild of Food Writers.
Tom has written five highly-acclaimed food books: E Is For Eating – An Alphabet of Greed, The Year of Eating Dangerously, Full English: A Journey Through the British and Their Food, Let's Eat: Recipes From My Kitchen Notebook and Let's Eat Meat. He’s also a director of the London institution Green’sRestaurant and Oyster Bar.
Tom attributes much of his passion for food to his mother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall. His stepfather and godfather is Charles, Prince of Wales.
Tom is no slouch in the kitchen himself, cooking regularly for his wife and two children, and showing off his skills on British television. He’s a frequent visitor to Australia, attending food festivals and writing about our restaurants for international publications. His encyclopaedic knowledge of food and incisive criticism will keep all
contestants on their toes.

I think that having a Royal connection opened doors that a regular guy off the street wouldn't be able to walk through. It probably has helped Peter, Zara, David Linley, Tom P-B, Charles Spencer and Pippa and James. That's just how it works. It helps to know people.

What I find outrageous is the constant criticism of Party Pieces selling stuff as a cashing in on their Royal connections. Selling little princess or prince birthday plates isn't cashing in on George or Charlotte. That's just a common theme. I seen those themes here in America where we have no royalty.
Or complaining that they are pictured in a children's book that they had nothing to do with. And worst of all how dare they be pictured in their grandchildren's christening photos.

Exactly! What do people want? Them not to work wouldn't be more welcomed exactly! Maybe not sell anything with crowns/princess/prince/helicopter/brittish theme? xD

Having famous royal connections do open doors, even if you're not actually using those connections. Name recognition goes a long way.

The media treat the Middleton's and Tom Parker Bowles differently. The media see the Middleton's as a middle class, social climbing family. Despite their successful business ventures before Catherine and William got together. I think the media see Tom Parker Bowles as a upper class son of The Prince of Wales's longtime mistress/wife. What he do is part of his privileged life. Also, he's not a hot story, as the Middleton's are considered hot.

I've noticed the double standards for a while now.

Its not the 'media' so much as it is the Daily Mail. The Middletons are where Mail readers aspire to be. Wealthy, move in aristocratic circles, holidays in Mustique etc. Mail readers are in the demographic that brings out the most class envy with regards to the Middletons.

Pippa used to write for the Telegraph and the Spectator. No problems or issues there.
