KP didn’t deny it, what actually happened was this.

“A Kensington Palace source dismissed the claims and told MailOnline they are 'false'.”

No official denial.

See above, no official denial from KP.

I really don’t think these are “friends”, these are “sources”. The whole tone of the magazine shows that’s the case. Catherine’s friends wouldn’t partake in an article which openly declared her Catherine the Great.

I just have to think back to the actual Tatler cover she did and the interview she gave to know, this is BS.

Kensington Palace has denied it. A Kensington spokeperson has no reacted to the story.

I couldn't believe that Tatler article. That mag is usually known to be pro Cambridge and this is a straight up hit piece. It really makes Kate look bad. Whether true or not or a denial the story dings the Cambridge image and it's all over the Web's comment sections.

Honestly, it's been almost twenty years of Catherine and William knowing each other, being in a relationship and married and we barely had anything from their friends, that's why it's so hard to believe. I'm glad KP denied the story, but who and why is the question now.
My crazy theory this was a hit back piece because it was revealed this week that a certain someone expected to keep certain privileges while no longer working for the family business. Also there is that other book by a certain Lady who dared to reveal some not so pleasant details about a spouse and members of the spouses team made contact with the Lady to try and manipulate the book.
But you are right Cambridge friends have never spoken about them or for them on any forum.

Is the editor of the "Tatler" still the Duchess of Cambridge's old university friend Richard Dennen?

Remember the photos he had on his instagram of himself and her, Kate with the sandwich?

Odd quotes, can't see why we have this coming out.

Thank you! Anna Pasternak is a respected author who wrote a favorable bio of Wallis Simpson. When I saw her name, I was surprised.

Those sources can’t be friends, I agree - it’s not a positive article about Kate at all. That quote about how there is nothing to like or dislike about her, about how she essentially has her eyes on the prize of Queen? That’s nasty.

What interview are you referring to that Kate did?

The reality is that the Cambridges have not gone '15 years with no talk'. Perhaps because its been pretty quiet and boring for a few years people forget. But definitely during their dating, breakup and early marriage there were stories about 'friends' talking to the press. Stories about stress and so on. Stories from 'friends' about inside parties and décor. Friends who would talk about feelings, and personal events and so on. All under 'a friend disclosed'.

And certainly old friends from school days or so on did come out of the wood work during those early days as well.


That's the joys off becoming the turnip toff sweater wearing married a decade couple. Not much tongues wagging about your life.

Supermarket tabloids have been writing headlines about "How Kate is coping" how Kate feels betrayed" "Kate's worry about the future" "Kate's shock and outrage" etc since January. This just feels like an upmarket version of that.

A couple of posts have been deleted. Let’s stick to discussing the Cambridges and not start comparing royals. Thanks.

Then I guess we have a different reality, tbh Sure, there were some people who contacted the press - and they were not considered "friends" much longer after that. Cambridges' close circle remained silent through all of this, so it's pretty easy to assume they'll keep being silent. Many of them are godparents to the children and are enjoying a close relationship with William and Catherine.

That's the joy of having a solid, united public image for so long. They'll always be a story and they know it, so they keep things close to their vest. They know they don't need friends to "defend" them in the press, because it only makes things worse.

Sometimes you just have to let things go and live your life. They gave a great example of that this year, all we heard for weeks was this rift between Catherine and Rose and come Catherine's birthday... Rose is there, invited, clearly still being "in", while the press run rampant that the friendship ended.

You are correct that is their joy. They have a royal work life and a private life. Within that private life they have a tight knit circle of friends who do not betray them, William was known to set traps for new' friends' to see if they could be trusted, any tip offs to the press and they were out. They know they need the press to promote whatever charity or event the are leading on at the time but they do not want stories about themselves in the papers every day.
They do not need that kind of press and do not encourage it. I personally think they have found a decent balance with regards the press.

I'm usually pretty quiet about the Cambridges...the whole if you don't have something nice to say mantra; but WOW the Tatler Magazine story reveals a lot about the couple.... especially since it is edited by someone who runs in the same circles and spent time with the couple. It confirms my thoughts on them that they are controlling/bitter people who are only in it for the title/tiaras- not the people.

1. Catherine was so upset that Meghan wouldn't let her dictate/take over the decision making of her wedding that she restored to tears over some times. Getting that worked up over something so trivial doesn't bode well for the future future she's going to need to toughen up before she gets to the throne.

2. They aren't really as strong of parents as they want people to believe. If they can't balance their lives enough (even with all the help they have) to do a couple hours of work a week without sacrificing their children's upbringing or that complaining about homeschooling with all they resources they have... face it they aren't that good.

3. Can you imagine complaining about being exhausted from clapping once a week (that's worst than ribbon cutting) and playing bingo during a pandemic where people are sacrificing their lives to help others. Talk about being selfish

4. Catherine likes to think of her self as a CEO, man the egos are big with those ones. A successful CEO doesn't take 8 years to develop a 5 question survey. A CEO who has only produced one solo project in 9+ years of being with the firm isn't successful either.

5. The never explain/never complain and the inability to speak out don't appear to apply to the Cambridges. Although in their rebuttal they tried to pull one over on people and didn't actually deny most of it saying "false MISrepresentation" not that the story provided misrepresentation of the facts.

This along with prior comments of being bored with racism, joking about people's fear of a deadly virus shows me they really don't care.

The bottom line is the Cambridges aren't all that great or effective and rely heavily on people putting their heads in the sand or put the blame on scapegoats.

I’m not going to debate your whole comment but considering the Tatler article has been officially rebuked by Kensington Palace as false. The fact it’s edited but someone who “runs in the same circles”, therefore giving the story truth, proves inconsequential. It’s quite simple, like most articles about the royals, gossip, hearsay and unsubstantiated rumour.

There are some truths in the Tastler story. Otherwise the Kensington Palace would not be rushing out to try to kill the story, and do some damage control.

IMO that is one of the reasons that the palace allows stories to go with no comment because when they do they are accused of covering up the truth.
So the next time they do not deny a story the posters on here will say it must be true because they didn't deny it. It is a no win situation,
That goes for any of the family,

However, the palace seldom seems to follow that rule when it comes to Catherine/William...just everyone else. How many times has the palace spoken out when an unfavorable story comes out about this couple?

I was making a general comment about the press/ palace, I am not going to get in to a back and forth with you regarding a particular couple. I think you have made it very plain where you stand in this.

A Tatler spokesperson spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the Kensington Palace denial and said: “Tatler’s Editor-in-Chief Richard Dennen stands behind the reporting of Anna Pasternak and her sources. Kensington Palace knew we were running the ‘Catherine the Great’ cover months ago and we asked them to work together on it. The fact they are denying they ever knew is categorically false.”


So Tatler is countering their denial.
