The media better figure out that neither of those boys are going to put up with infractions ...gonna cost them financially and assuming they had a reputation might harm that as well.

This is the New York Review's view of Sally Bedell Smith's biography of Prince Charles that was published earlier this year.

"Even Charles’s love life was choreographed for him with the sort of elaborate care and tact usually reserved for pandas in captivity. "

I haven't read Bedell's book yet. It's not something that's on the top of my reading list. I have seen her on a couple of talk shows promoting her book. And recently there was a fun online slideshow of photographs accompanied by quotes from her book.

As far as the New Yorker reviewer's critique of Bedell's biography, and of Prince Charles, don't you guys get the full-on sarcasm and humor of it all, even if the review is downright serious albeit replete with tongue-in-cheek jabs at both Charles and Bedell? [Apparently some posters' responses to the review were deleted after I submitted this post?]

ROFL at the reviewer's mocking of Bedell's alliterative subtitles for her biographies; and of Prince Charles' long-suffering unease over his family's 'philistinism' and their askance 'tude toward his "intense, lachrymose responses to art, literature, and nature." Not to mention Prince Charles supposed 'annoyed peevishness' at having to travel on some rare occasions first class rather than on a private jet. The part about Prince Charles carrying around with him a white leather toilet seat is rather a mild lavatorial luxury I should say compared with the not so long ago traditional royal duties expected of the monarch's Groom of the Stool, eh!

But the quote about the choreographing of Prince Charles' love life absolutely takes the cake.

Hopefully, Princes William and Harry understand how fortunate they are to be modern day princes who fortuitously had a mother who lavished them with loving care and attention, despite the fact they lost her during their adolescent years. Moreover, they have been able to avoid the panda treatment when it comes to their love lives.

“'I think it is disturbing for women to have experiences if they have to remain on a pedestal after marriage,' Mountbatten wrote to Charles." Wowza! The less said about this Lord Mountbatten quote the better, considering his and his wife's scandalous affairs, and well-known but swept under the rug marital problems. Geesh!

I normally don't spend time on reading/posting the crap from the horrid Globe, but I came over this when I took one of my 3 daily visits to the royal twitter pages and had my biggest laugh for days.

From the Sun's former Royal Correspondent:

Charles Rae‏ @Sunxrae
Where do they get this bollocks from!!!!????
https://twitter.com/Sunxrae/status/902621990904848390

And as you see: The dying Queen quits and has named Charles as King, while William and Kate is betrayed and cruel Camilla triumph.

A very good and insightful article on the life of the Royal Correspondents:
https://www.marieclaire.com/celebrit...mpression=true

It’s an exciting time, but they have a lot of work to do now the royal wedding is getting closer.

This is a remarkable and unique twist to raise funds for Help for Heroes. Not only by having a book published solely with contributions from the public as they see their royals, but giving much needed attention and awareness to this charity which has been supported in the past by both William and Harry.

I like this idea and would definitely buy the book.

LONDON — Arthur Edwards, a photographer for The Sun, has spent four decades tagging along after members of Britain’s royal family. He sprinkles his conversations with recollections of kindnesses bestowed on him over the years: a jocular telegram from Prince Charles in 1981, a thoughtful phone call to his granddaughter from Princess Eugenie in 2013.

But raise the subject of Prince Harry, whose May 19 wedding to the American actress Meghan Markle will be the highlight of the year for much of the British media, and Mr. Edwards’s face clouds over. “He’s become — it’s no secret — he’s become very withdrawn. He doesn’t say ‘good morning’ to us anymore,” Mr. Edwards said. “He’s upset with us generally.”

If Mr. Edwards had hopes that Prince Harry would be in a forgiving mood as the wedding approached, they were banished when Kensington Palace announced details of the media’s access to the ceremony: Specifically, there will be almost none.

One reporter will allowed into St. George’s Chapel for the wedding, a palace spokesman said on Tuesday, noting that the space is small and it is not a formal state occasion. Four photojournalists will get coveted spots outside the chapel. Scores more will be stationed along the carriage route and on the castle grounds.

Mr. Edwards, 77, a veteran of seven royal weddings, said he assumed the decision was Prince Harry’s. “I can’t imagine the press officer advising that to the prince,” Mr. Edwards said. “He and Meghan have seen what’s been written and said, ‘We don’t want anyone near the wedding.’ That’s a clear message, yeah.”

Oh well. The wedding will be well covered. The Sun who trashes Meghan on a daily basis is upset that Harry and Meghan don't care for them? That is laughable.

Serves them right. After the news broke of Harry and Meghan, they were disgusting to say the least. Even if they didn't think that the relationship would last, some of the headlines were atrocious.

Yep! Did the UK tabloids really think that they would have been rewarded with the best photo positions after the crap that they have written...as well as giving estranged friends and relatives full media access to denigrate and embarrass Meghan?
Let the tabloids now continue with their trash stories. When Harry and Meghan start their first tours, have their children (hopefully) etc the trash tabloids will again be side lined. Maybe the US media will be given more favourable access. We shall see.

Mr Edwards is damn right there, and I [for one] am glad of it. For DECADES the tabloid media [and paps] have fed off an institution they NEVER hesitate to damage, absolutely without the least consideration for anyone within it [not children, not 'newcomers'.. NO-ONE].
I have zero sympathy for their 'plight', and am pretty certain a majority my compatriots [regardless of their views on the Monarchy] feel the same..

I can understand Arthur Edward's disappointment too. Although he works for the Sun and that paper has not treated Harry and Meghan as a couple very nicely, Edwards has been around a long time and is actually a photographer that the royal family likes and gets along with nicely. I remember Kate coming out of the Lindo Wing with her newborn and pointing and say "Oh! There's Arthur!" and waving to Edwards.

I am going to be honest and state that I'm actually pleased that this wedding will not be overrun with reporters and photographers so close to the actual wedding. This keeps the wedding on the more intimate scale that Harry and Meghan have been wanting. We're definitely not going to be short on stories and pictures from the day but its just that its a chosen few that will actually be close and they will share what they get with the rest of the media.

This wedding is going to be tight on security and gaggles of media aren't going to be directly in their line of sight and I think that does make it more pleasurable for a family wedding and the bridal couple. It also tells me that most definitely that even if the Markle siblings have hopes of being close to the wedding because of being a media "royal correspondent", they are going to be sadly disappointed.

Succinctly put. I have no sympathy whatsoever for them. There are enough respectable outlets out there for the monarchy to get its point across without wallowing in the filth of tabloid culture.

While Arthur Edwards is well liked by at least some members of the royal family, I also understand why he wouldn't be given prime access due to who he works for. The Sun ran a number of unfair and unflattering headlines when the relationship came to light. And course, we had the war of the bums of Meghan's butt right on the front page from a paparazzi shot right before Pippa's wedding. Emily Andrews' justification for that was that the lads thought it looked good. Seriously? So, they are getting what they deserve.

Another thing we have to consider is that St. George's Chapel is located within the grounds of Windsor Castle, unlike WA, which is on a public street. I'd imagine the security of whom to let into the Castle grounds would be tight that day. They can't just have photographers wondering in and out. They can't stop them from camping out in front of the Abbey, but I doubt they'd let them do the same at Windsor Castle.

Britain’s Wedding-Mad Tabloids Feel a Cold Royal Shoulder. Wedding mad Photographers too. It's a real shame, with all of us previously enthusiastic tub thumpers for the Harry and Meghan union

According to a few royal reporters yesterday on Twitter, only PA will be outside the chapel by the steps. So the wide range of pictures that we are all used to in the past wont happen.

These photogs, incl Arthur are not paps - they are recognised professionals who have toured with all of the royals over theyears,

This change appears to be just with William and Harry. Its a 2 edged sword because they still need the media to get their messages re causes out into the wider domain. It will be interesting to see how this pans out.

The NYT article is definitely worth reading - its more than just the wedding.
