Prince William's gift to Charlotte and George is a childhood just like Diana's | Daily Mail Online

miss whirley 05-10-2015 12:21 PM

I refuse to click on the link since it's The Mail - haven't visited their cesspool since 2012. So my comment is just in relation to the headline.

A childhood like Diana's? Diana had a miserable childhood. I can only imagine the article to be a passive-agressive swipe at William where they will hint about parental dysfunction being passed down multiple generations.

HRHHermione 05-10-2015 12:51 PM

I read the link and again, the Mail gets basic facts on record wrong because no one there cares about fact checking. Article says Diana is buried at Park House... Which is totally wrong. She's at Althorp, Park House was her home before her father became Earl.

I think the years at Park House on the Sandringham estate where Diana spent the earliest years of her life were during the happy times before the separation and subsequent divorce of her parents. Quiet, country living seems to be what the Cambridges' prefer and Anmer Hall is ideal for them especially with two very young children.

I'm glad they're getting a few years to just live, work and raise a family for the most part. The busy, busy life of their royal roles loom in the future so I have to believe that they're going to treasure these times in relative peace and quiet and make memories with their children and of course, Lupo.

ETA: I noticed that they stated Diana was buried at Park House too but down in the article, it states she is buried at Althorp. Someone probably was in a rush setting the headlines to get out the door and wasn't paying very good attention. But then again, that's why we call 'em the Daily Fail.

They also say that Anmer is two miles from Sandrigham in one part and then another paragraph down it says three miles.

Such a trashy tabloid.

The article is indeed poorly written, but my understanding of what I read was that Park House is 1/2 a mile from Sandringham and 3 miles from Amner and that Amner is 2 miles from Sandringham. Which still doesn't add up.

It could be a triangle, not a straight line.

Here is a screen snip of the Sandringham area. Park House is at far left and is a hotel now. Sandringham is at the right of Park House. And Anmer is at far right X where King's lane swings up and around the property and becomes "The Square"

See the attachment.

Lovely to have some distance from the main house/people.

Brilliant, alas my lack of attention during geometry class many moons ago is revealed.

Jessica Hay is being quoted by "New Idea" as saying the Duchess of Cambridge has bought a "Phil & Teds Vibe" buggy - for seating Prince George and Princess Charlotte at the same time.

And the Bose sound system will again be playing the sound of crashing waves in the nursery. This was the only thing that settled PG in his baby days.

Look forward to seeing that. :flowers:

Has the date for the christening been announced yet?

Nothing official that I've seen Lady Nimue - though several articles have reported it's expected before the Queen leaves for her summer holiday.

I guess that is still some time off though, as there are all those Royal summer things to do first - Chelsea Flower Show, Ascot, Trooping of the Colour, Buckingham Palace Garden Parties etc.

In his New Zealand interview Uncle Harry said he missed the coverage of Princess Charlotte's birth - but that his brother Prince William sent him two photos.

One, before anyone else saw her, and then another at Kensington Palace with Prince George.

Marty91charmed 05-11-2015 07:49 AM

Oh, imagine if those photos would have been leaked or hacked...

Pranter 05-11-2015 08:38 AM

I'd say they have top of the line security for their phones nowdays.

Sun Lion, when I heard him, I thought he meant that he does not read the press coverage about family "stuff." I'd totally understand that.

Dman 05-11-2015 03:14 PM

I figured William and Catherine would've sent Harry some personal pictures before hand.

Curryong 05-11-2015 06:49 PM

I think Harry will visit Anmer very quickly after he comes home. George is getting to the age where he would enjoy rough housing, rolling around, throwing a ball etc. He and Uncle Harry probably really enjoy each other's company!
