What we need to do is stick to the facts. Its not about liking or disliking someone or debating where someone's "place" is or the advantage of taking Clutch Purse Shield 101 at your local community college. Its about what we know to be true.

Did the Cambridges and the Middletons go to the Big House for any reason at all? We'll never know as whatever happened there, stays there and was private.

We know the Middletons were in Norfolk
We know the Middletons walked to church
We know it was Kate's birthday weekend.
We know the Queen is back in action again.

Everything else is pure speculation.

The party walked to church from Sandringham. When you see the royals and their guest walking to church on the Sandringham estate, they are departing from Sandringham House.

A picture of Carole Middleton with The Marquess of Cholmondeley on their way to church. A friend and neighbor of William and Catherine, he's The Lord Great Chamberlain, one of the Great Officers of State.

We saw Kate and William attending the big charity dinner a taste of Norfolk at their estate.

No surprise when Kate and William moved to Amner, the daily fail decided to try and sell papers making a competition between the two ladies. Who was richer? Who had better style? Even compared their similar families. They sure love pitting women against each other or at least trying to make people think that way

Sounds like the daily fail.

Absolutely lovely photo with an absolutely garbage article.

The Daily Mail is always bad but their use of the term "Red Indian" was particularly egregious.

Still- nice to see this old photo

The little video clip is great! Catherine was cheerful and friendly, the same way that she is over 20 years later. I just love her.

What is Donna trying to achieve by getting her name in the press and talking about her relationship with James? You can call the Middleton's many things, but the one thing they are is discrete. I am sure articles like this do nothing to ingratiate her with the Middleton's.

The article seems to be working hard to spin the negatives. BTW she seems like a lovely woman. First I've seen her 'live'. So when is that marriage happening?

An article from a few years ago that sort of puts it all in perspective.

Quote:
Uncle G should be welcomed, not vilified, for spicing things up a bit. He is only the latest in a long line of waifs and strays who have found themselves on the fringes of royal circles because a relative happened to marry into the firm. See the 9th Earl Spencer, with his seven children from three different wives and a string of affairs that led to him briefly being dubbed “Lord Lovecheat” and “Lord of the Flings”.

Or the late Major Ronald Ferguson, who in 1988 was found to be a member of the Wigmore Club, a massage parlour in London staffed by girls dressed in “starched white medical gowns”, who allegedly offered members sexual services. Then there is Tom Parker Bowles, arrested in 1995 for possession of marijuana and Ecstasy, and exposed in 1999 as a cocaine user.

As ever, the most interesting people in the Royal family are not actually part of it – they just happen to be distantly related to it. Though that is not to say that the royals aren’t without their own flaws and foibles.

The antics of self-made Uncle G, who pulled himself up from a house in Hounslow and made his first million before his 30th birthday, seem pretty tame and inoffensive when compared with those of Prince William’s uncle, Air Miles Andy. Now there’s a black sheep, a man who used up vast amounts of public money on airfares while working as UK trade envoy, and who would probably have continued to do so had his friendships with the likes of Libyan gun smugglers (Tarek Kaituni) and paedophiles (Jeffrey Epstein) not been publicly questioned

Rita Clifton, a brand expert, believes that Uncle Gary is vital to the Middletons.

“I think there is a long and rich tradition in this country of good old English eccentricity, without which most families would not exist.” Uncle G, with his fondness for chicken livers and 1999 vintage Château de Sales-Pomerol, certainly fits the bill.

Katie Readman is one of James Middleton's best friends. Pre-Donna, the tabloid media often tried to ship the two. I know she's been dating a man named Fred Schiff since 2014. Anyways, I came across an engagement announcement in the Telegraph for a Katie Readman and a Fred Schiff.

Mr F.J.A. Schiff and Miss K.A. Readman - Engagements Announcements - Telegraph Announcements

It's either them, or a big coincidence. If it's them, congrats!

What a poisonous article. I mean, just truly ugly in a way that these folks have never done anything to earn. Carole was basically writing ad copy- promotional material for her business. That's what it looks like! We don't expect new and exciting writing from commercials for any other kind of business, why should hers be any different?

I am sorry but we aren't talking commercials.

Yes when I read an article written with tips, I expect some real tips. Seems along the lines of why Pippas book was such a flop. People expect a party planner to have tips that a preschool teacher couldn't come up with themselves. Just like I expect cookbooks to give me good recipes, I expect advice columns to give advice.

I think they get a lot of undue criticism. I will totally give them that. But when it comes to publishing articles, I hold them to same standards. This wasn't a commercial or ad for her business. It was a magazine article she wrote on Easter parties.

Really? Did you notice they didn't link to the article or name the publication? I just did a search for it and it's not coming up. It sounds like the pretty standard kind of sponsored content often pushed in magazines as business promotion.
