Britters, I will never stumble across your IG because I almost never go there.

You don't think that drinking champagne in a room full of Chanel bags is different than other moms her age? No one has said she should 'seek shelter', but we have said that she should stop trying SOOO hard to seek fame! And that she should leave her innocent children out of whatever changes she's going through.

I post photos of my children regularly. And I know plenty of woman who like to show off their "spoils", is it always attractive, no? But Lord, reading through this thread it sounds like she's a monster. And to be fair, some people LIKE celebrity and attention. And she can bring a lot of attention to her own charities and causes.

I agree that with the divorce as messy and lengthy as it is, perhaps posting so much of the boys is inviting trouble. But they're her children and her pride, and in the end, they're probably what's getting her through this.

We have a fundamental difference in our viewpoints dear Britters, I'm afraid.

Placing so much about her life and children on social media I also think is not the best.

Your post is interesting Britters. It seems to me that this is a bit of a generational thing. Many people who are growing up in the modern social media age don't seem to have the same feeling about posting family members/children as those who are a little older.


I fall into the 'didn't even have computers when I was growing up' generation, so find it good to remember that my way (never post photos or actual imformation about myself, don't use much in the way of social media) is not necessarily the way things are for younger people today.

Publishing too often on social media can influence childrens' opinions of self image (over inflate it's importance) and it can, at times, seem like gloating to onlookers.
To me, Tessy needs to covert her private life more.

There is a huge difference between posting pictures for all to see or making them available to (close) friends and family members. I'd say most of the backlash comes from the perception that Tessy is using her children to promote herself.

I totally agree

Honestly any mothers under the age of 40, their social media likely looks like this. The vision of mother's social media should be the 'soccer mom' social media full of finger painting, and baking cookies, and car pools is a laugh. Yep moms enjoy wine and shopping, and have a social life often. It is nothing different then any of my friends and what they post on their walls. And some of them are soccer moms by day. The reality is Tessy is a 30 something year old mom in the 21st century. Just because she WAS married into the royal family, doesn't mean she has to continue to live in the time vacuum that is the royal family.

Its not as if she is using her kids to sell her products, or the company she is working for. People may be shocked to realize that many NORMAL parents actually use their children in their business. I have friends who sell Monat (hair products) and kids clothes on line. And guess who they use to model them on social media???

Tessy isn't doing this. She is posting pictures of her with her kids going for a walk or reading together. Nothing different then the rest of us. Considering many parents post baby pictures on toilets and in bath tubs of their kids, her sons are actually quite lucky.

Tessy has established a career and a charity place during her marriage. And she shouldn't have to give it up in the divorce. Who does that benefit? The charity? No, they would lose the publicity. Her sons? No, because that money helps pay for their lifestyle. Tessy? No. Would she be happier or more fulfilled hiding away in the country, living off what ever alimony the royals throw her way?? Highly doubt it.

Have any royal exes done diferent? Diana, Alexandra, Sarah?? No. Honestly if social media existed when Diana was alive, I think she would have been a fan of it.

It's most definitely a generational thing. But Tessy's IG account looks like mine and any number of my friends pages. Overflowing with kids and girls nights out and date nights with my husband.

And honestly, if the Family took issue with her posting images of her children, lawyers would step in. The truth is, she's not doing anything to harm her children or profit off of them. She's living her life and they are very much a part of it. I don't know much of the media coming out, surrounding the divorce, but perhaps her sharing of the kids is to show they are flourishing and not miserable as the proceedings continue to drag on. Or maybe she just likes to share. I don't see anything wrong with it, either way.

But likely the photos of your children in your Instagram aren't watched, copied, modified and re-posted to people's social media and blogs by thousands of people around the world, like the photos of Louis and Tessy's sons.

Tessy is the Brand Ambassador of House of Life London, which makes organic skincare.

Exactly this; and that's the main reason behind my thoughts on the matter.

Whilst I do agree that generational issues are a factor; I don't think it's completely a generational thing as I'm a student and have social media myself, as do many of my peers, but I have an account with quite a large following (not as much as Tessy, of course) and try to refrain from posting anything that's too personal. Whilst I do know a lot of people who share as much as Tessy, I also know an equal amount of people who hate social media or who don't post a lot. Even on my personal account, I tend not to overshare. It's just my personal preference and I think that is what the mixed opinions on Tessy's posting style boils down to.
You do make a good point about legal involvement though.

No reason to believe she didn't do that too; my FB is full today of mother's day posts, doesn't mean they don't visit/call their mum personally

So what is the situation of Tessy's title? The first Royal Watcher interview referred to her as "the Princess" but then also "Tessy Antony" elsewhere.
