Howls of anguish from UK press (and HelloUK).

I think it's a great fit

Huffington Post UK editor-in-chief Stephen Hull said staff at the publication were "thrilled" at the prospect of welcoming their guest in mid-February.

"Dealing with mental health issues has been a major editorial focus for us and I'm very excited to be working together on such an important project," he said.

The whining from the Royal reporters on Twitter is childish.

As well as the Daily Fail, but that is to be expected.

Hahaha, such childish behaviour and whining. Like this is for a charity !! How is this different from the annual event where members of the BRF "broker deals" to raise money for charity?
She is a guest editor and will be focusing on mental health issues, not breaking new! and its only for one day. They can stay mad for all I care. This shows that they are selfish and want things to always benefit them! It really does not reflect well on the, which is ironic as they are trying to paint this good initiative in a bad light.

They act like they have not been focusing on her clothes and hair and less on her charities for her entire royal life. Now she has found a way that will allow, for just one day, for the focus to be on the main issue at hand which is mental health.

Yall know how much I love her focus on mental health issues, especially with regards to children. I did a little dance when I saw that tweet from KP.
A whole day where Huffpost(with about 250 million daily views) will focus on mental health issues, allowing the people affected to direct the tone of the concersation and hopefully help fight the stigma is a brilliant initiative.

I for one absolutely love it and cant wait!!

I wonder why the palace announced this project such in advance! Does it mean that Kate won't make an official appereance until mid February? Mustique time is approaching, but I thought that she would attend an engagement or two, even though January is usually a slow month.

I think it might be to garner alot of attention in beforehand, so people can hype it up or such. And also probably the yearly trip since people seem to be shocked that they take one sun trip per year.

And somewhat hypocritical, TBH. Consider this tweet from the fall:

@jeb61ju It's clear William, Kate, and Harry support Charles's idea of a more activist monarchy. I just think she needs to speak out more.
Basically, from the cheap seats, the conversation is looking like this:

"speak up more"
<Kate makes arrangements to have more of a voice>
"NOT THAT WAY!"

Something tells me that maybe that's the main reason

Also since articles are being commissioned on topic, less Likely chance of containing the story. so KP announced to control the message. More people are involved. I seem to recall when prince Charles edited a magazine last year it was announced early as well.

Richard Palmer is the absolute worst. He's running around retweeting disgusting articles & he wonders why the Royals don't want to talk to him.

He called me angry person & a troll that overstepped the mark or something cause I called him out on it.

How do people like that have a job? He's constantly on twitter whining about everything and threatening to "do mean articles" or whatever.

Lord.

Lord.

His behavior really has been appalling- tweeting ugly things while complaining that he can't get near the family.

I wonder why?

Yeah, his Twitter persona is very histrionic. I can only imagine how he behaves in real life. I bet the royals groan every time they see that divo strut through the door.



I really think he should try a different profession. He seems to loathe the royals with every fiber of his being. If he were to work on a different subject matter he might be less catty and obnoxious. Life is too short to do a job you hate so much.

Agreed. A change in profession is in order.

His behavior has pretty much guaranteed he'll never get close enough to the family to be a good royal reporter, so he should move on.

I don't doubt that. I only think it a very PR-wise decision that was made counting all the pros

Well, let's just say it is a curious coincidence that the annoucement was made in mid-january then.

lol exactly what I said. Convenient that he ignored that part of my tweet.

I think one can dislike the royals and write articles about them, but you've got to balance it with something else. I don't know if he does, I don't pay attention to his career, but he should.

As for announcing it so early, it's a damned if you do and damned if you don't. W&K have been criticized by the media for not alerting them to things early enough (or at all), but now they're being criticized for doing it too early (and for doing it at all). It's insane. There really is no winning for them.

It is childish, I don't understand how he justifies his last few posts or why the man is behaving this way. I may not be kates biggest fan but some of his recent posts are childish and petty. He is a grown man and should behave as such with some professionalism.
