So, I'm reading through the thread and enjoying my nightly cup of Chai Tea before bed and then I read that up there just after having a sip from my cup. Do any of you have any idea how painful it is to get Chai Tea up into your nasal cavity from trying not to spit it out laughing?

It's *very* painful!!

ROTFLOL though!!! Really good one HRHHermione!!! :flowers:

I think the only time they really had press silence was supposed to be when their mother died and they were going to school. For a time the media was shamed into silence, but it didn't last long. It was around that time Prince William got his phone hacked and all the stories about Prince Harry's drug use came out.

I like very much princess Mary of Denmark, princess Letizia or princess Charlene, But I like also princess Cathrine, but the newspapers like to make a battle between them that people enter in this game. For me the english or other tabloids are the same . they make more money saying a negative story that every body will belive even it is not true. Now , papers say, ' we have a new which comes of an unknown person near the palace but well informed and it becomes true in their papers., people do not think why the report do not give the name of these unknown because they do not exist, but Daylimail or other want to sell more and more papers and have more and more money. Now there is internet, it could be a good thing but the negative new without a control could make the turn of the earth in 30mn and what can the palace do against this? nothing! and it spoils the lives of many people (royal or not) look the Murdoch press. People want news of a princess or a prince and they do not the difference between a true new and a false new and the tabloids play on it

It looks like it wasn't just the Murdoch media, either - the Guardian is also being accused of hacking phones and Piers Morgan said several years back that his reporters were hacking when he was the head of the Mirror. Bad news sells better than good, sadly, and a picture of, say, Harry drunk with a new girlfriend will sell better than one of him in a suit doing charity work.
