I despise everything about that paper - it is sanctamonious and hypocritical and has never, in my experience, had a balanced view about anything. It exists to motivated all the trolls out there.

I hope that this time they have over done it and they get sued.

I don't buy the conspiracy theory. To me they are your average celebrity rag covering...celebrities. That usually means dirt is involved. Wouldn't go as far as to say they have it in for the Middletons.

They do include the best and most comprehensive selection of photographs which will secure readership. And everyone knows that sex, dirt and drama sells. The perfect combination for the masses. They are just sticking to the sales formula that works best. Morals are not of interest to them I think, just reader numbers.

I think its a cultural thing - some Brits would feel the same; don't expect others to agree.

I think African Aussie has a point; if painting the Middletons as a family of Mother Teresas drove sales, that's what we'd see. Whatever campaign they are waging it is driven by their readership.

But the articles about James and his businesses were skewed and biased and based on half facts.

Also, while I think Kate's activities are now the business of the public, I don't think the same of the Middletons, unless their activities affect the public in some sort of way.

It's hardly embarrassing interview.

In general I would agree with your point of view, in particular when it comes to the way they do business (-> suppliers) or their vacation destinations or ...

However, there is one exclusion IMHO: when someone cashes in on his royal relatives by getting free goodies. The question to be asked should always be, would they receive these items without their sister/daughter/.. being mother to the future heir and spouse of a prince. If a newspaper discloses such deals it's perfectly legitimate IMHO. In fact this is what is understood as investigative journalisme. Nothing wrong with that.

I cant imagne the royals or the middletons will be happy about this break of ranks. Cant see him 'helping' out much with the royal baby and is now more likely to be sidelined quite rightly so by Kate and William

One of the royal reporters on twitter read the article, and they said that the entire interview is basically about Kate. Among other things, he talks about her 2007 split from William, and claims that Camilla comforted him about his bad press at the royal wedding.

I don't think the Middletons and the Cambridge's are going to be at all happy about this interview. And I don't blame them. Kate has only made one comment about her split (during the engagement interview), so I doubt she would take kindly to her uncle blabbing about her inner most feelings.

Honestly, I think this interview is in poor taste.

As I've said here before, we can all choose our friends but we cannot choose our family.

Whatever the Middletons think of this interview, there's not much they can do about it.

This is unfortunate but pretty harmless stuff. But it is a warning bell for the family as it is trailing his book. As a trailer this won't have any "juicy" info in it, but Uncle Gary is probably in the business of a newspaper paying for serial rights. It could get worse.

That's one less for the christianing party.

He must have a deep need for publicity & attention because he is not exactly short of cash.

well maybe he is short of cash but not disposable assets. He's moving from Spain back to England, we dont know where his money is tied up but maybe with the issues in Europe he has cash flow problems. Haven't heard that he has actually sold his home yet. It is possible that actual cash is an issue.

Plus it is probably not the best moment to sell real estate in Spain right now.

Ruh-roh. Did Uncle Gary learn he won't be a godparent, or did he learn that he will be a godparent?

What is with this guy? He obviously feels he is being left out of the limelight or something. I think he is looking for attention and does anything he can to get it. And to think he would ever be involved in even a small part of the new babys life is rediculous, does he really think the BRF will let him? If so he truly is mad.

I completely agree. DM is a newspaper, newspapers publish stories that make their readers by the newspapers. Anything with Middleton on it sells, big time. IMO there's no ' having it in for them' they're using them to sell things like every single newspaper out there.

The Daily Mail has the best logo free pictures of royals we will ever get, and we get them as soon as they're taken thanks to twitter. If people don't like it, then just block the site, simple. If you want intelligent reporting, watch the news. I

"Kate's uncle Gary claims he mended royal split (has £6m villa to sell)

Got it in one!
