Some people just can't bear seeing others do better than them. I've seen it with my own eyes while working on my Masters degree, and in other instances. The jealousy is completely unwarranted, since the person who has worked hard to get to where he/she is has nothing to do with the other person's lower quality lifestyle. This newspaper is so petty, it would be comical if it wasn't so rude.

Has Ms Platell apologised to Charles since we all saw his incredibly touching personal tribute to his mother broadcast just before the Jubilee? Of course not.
Wow! That's spiteful and obnoxious. I think the Prince of Wales did a wonderful tribute to his mother, and I loved watching him do the weather forecast in Scotland. This woman is trying to take her own anger on those who are not deserving of being trashed like this.

I read the article as well and I thought it wasn't worth the paper it was written on.

I guess she has no answer for those people who were in the Royal Box, do they think they are royal as well?

The hate that is directed at the Middleton's is just amazing but really its just par for the course at the Daily Mail. That paper doesnt like the rich or the poor. They just like causing trouble IMO.

Just remember, people who write such garbage are telling us what they themselves are like mentally and emotionally. It certainly does not make me want to know them.

I dont think so. William " Bay " Middleton had one child as far as I know, a girl. He was rumored to have been the father of I think another girl, I think she became the wife of Winston Chuchill.

William Middleton came from a family of Scottish landowners who were well-off enough for his uncle to be the master of the Fife hunt and his father to marry a Hamilton (of the Scottish ducal family).
I personally doubt any connection because if one such existed, we would have heard about it.

Good old Katie Nicholl - ace reporter at dishing up negative comments with a smile on her face. Loved the way she "distanced" herself from early poor press coverage of the Middletons, led by her paper the DM.

He's ambitious, young and getting on with his life. Good luck to him. My only advice would be to stop giving interviews.

Has there been any sign of the Middletons at the Olympics? I checked the usual zimbio for pics a couple of times - and didn't find anything. Have any of the family been spotted at the games?

Was this written by Nicholls?! Crap I can't stand her, when will she go away. As for James I have always liked him since I first discovered him. Definitely think he is better looking than Pippa.

certainly was - I agree with you. She damns people with faint praise; dishes the "Dirt" (cos it isn't really) and then murmurs a few positives. I'd say what I really feel but I'd get banned. But she's a witch.

She's definitely out to make a buck on whatever web she can weave out of thin air but to call her a witch is alluding that she has knowledge of the old religion. There are some among us such as I that do follow the old ways. Not trying to cause any problems but I did want to point that out.

Witch as it a general term of a v not nice person.

I think I have to stop there!

I think in private they are the same family as other people's. I don't think it is so big news that the Middletons were guest by Charles and Camilla, or by the Queen. They are also only familymembers, I can imagine, that Charles and Camilla were also guest by Middletons without press and propaganda, they are only people like me or you... Their role in the public is others. But their familyevents and the contact to eachother can be the same as by us.
