A number of speculative posts and responses to them have been deleted. There's plenty to discuss without crossing the line into speculation.

If people did not buy the tabloids, The Daily Mail reporters would be out of a job.
Why do the reporters have an interest in Jack anyway? He is the grandson-in-law of The Queen.

You guys! Geez. Jack is in the glamour lifestyle area of his employer's business.

He wasn't hired to sit in a warehouse wearing a green visor and attending to ledgers.

Princess Eugenie knows this.

She may know it logically in her mind but emotions rarely are so convenient and cut and dry.

Because he's the grandson-in-law of The Queen. He had a televised wedding with all the royal trimmings. And to a lesser extent Eugenie posts semi regular pictures of her family on her Instagram. There's a market for members of HM's extended family behaving "scandalously" and doing something wrong or on the flip side getting married and doing glamourous/good things (like Kitty's recent "royal adjacent" wedding).

To be far to the DM, this time the photos were publicly available and already being talked about before they published them.

It's a minor "scandal" not really a big deal in the grand scheme of things but I can see why it made the tabloids.

After reading the headlines I was expecting some scandalous photos, and all I got was some pretty standard looking work situation

I'm more than sure Eugenie is completely fine. It's a part of his job. There wasn't anything inappropriate in the pictures and I sincerely doubt it was the first time his work looked exactly like that. Perhaps the first time it was photographed and in the tabloids.

A big fuss about absolutely nothing and people are talking about temptation and infidelity, oh lord

When I sign contracts, I always make it clear that I'm not to do any of the advertising. No TV appearances, no radio, no cameras, nothing. They're more than fine with this because having someone who gets nervous whenever public attention is on them isn't good for them anyway. Tongue-tied, blushing, all the array isn't a good look when promoting anything.

There is a part of business not everyone is cut out for. Jack clearly is. I didn't see anything scandalous about it. Not even mildly inappropriate. The fact that he's Eugenie's husband was the main attraction, not anything he did, IMO.

I bet the company is laughing about the 'free publicity' they are getting with these photos.

Yes, because George Clooney never gets any publicity on his own!

If he had refused to do that, I am sure that would have caused him a lot more trouble than going along. It seems very far-fetched to make him taking a picture next to someone into a 'temptation' and 'risk for his marriage' - I'm quite impressed how all of this turned into a discussion about infidelity. Next to that, him 'looking with his eyes' in this situation sounds much more dangerous - and there is no clear indication that he spent his afternoon staring at women's half-naked bodies; he went on a boat trip and swam in the sea...
I would have to agree, as to "looking with his hands", it's a far cry from what we saw. I am both surprised and disgusted at the speed Jack and Eugenie's marriage went from charmingly sweet and romantic to on the rocks and the unrestrained pleasure people are feeling at the possibility of a front row at the destruction of their marriage. Popcorn? That is truly cruel and shows the depths of callousness some are willing to sink to in pursuit of their 'entertainment'.

I think Eugenie and Jack display a wonderfully unabashed happiness and sheer joy in living that is actually enviable despite the depressive aspects of everyone's life and expectations for the future in this time of Covid.

In perhaps an aftermath of the "Jack-on-a-Boat-with-Girls" affair, Jack Brooksbank is now taking over as CEO of the accounting company of his father, Bunte online, the german tabloid, reports.
https://www.bunte.de/royals/britisch...neuen-job.html

How this fits with his education - I have no idea! But as long as the Prince Andrew case goes on, I am sure, we wont see jolly Windsors anymore.

It's CEO he shall be, not CFO. I think it's a good fit.

And I defend Jack in Boatgate. He is/was in the leisure/lifestyle business. The opportunistic girl who engaged in immodest behavior was out of his control. He had no choice but to be an engaging host with the cameras all popping.

The Yorks could use an accounting firm resource in their fold. STAT.

I don’t think Jack is set to be CEO at his father’s old firm. As far as I know Jack doesn’t possess an accounting degree. The original report (from which Bunte seems to have taken its article and embroidered it) was an Eden Confidential piece in our old friend the Daily Fail, of a few days ago.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...ad-models.html


In it Eden reports that ‘he has heard’ that Jack is to be appointed a director at his father’s prestigious old firm. A Director, especially a non-executive one as I suspect Jack will be, sometimes has few duties bar turning up to board meetings and proffering a suggestion or two.

Eugenie and Jack attended the Horan & Rose Show: „Modest!“ in Watford on September 3. The event, hosted by Niall Horan and Justin Rose, raised money for The Black Heart Foundation.

I watched the programme yesterday and it was quite interesting overall. This was filmed a few months ago when Eugenie was pregnant and she came across as nervous on camera but enthusiastic in her love of art and her beliefs about it.

I did like when she described the moment she realised her grandmother had hundreds of masterpieces and what that meant.

Here's a Telegraph article on her appearance:

https://archive.ph/1jtMh

Quote:
“Some of the great people at the Royal Collection showed me around and I chose it. It was the first time I'd really delved into the collection.

“Looking at that painting in this gallery was definitely my first ‘moment’.”

Princess Eugenie said she had the “privilege” of speaking to Inside Art about the “remarkable” Masterpieces from Buckingham Palace exhibition, which is open now.

Of the opportunity to sit in the Queen’s gallery for “ages” to absorb the works, she said: “Art has to be about how you understand it and how you feel about it.

“Someone can’t tell you how to feel. You have to look at it and think, 'Oh my God, now I’m transported to Venice, or in the fields with the cows’.

“It’s how you understand it.”
