But I don't blame W&H for the press creating drama. They had a right to have their say as adult men. Why should they avoid difficult topics?
The media creates drama even when none exists anyway, words are twisted or things are implied to direct the narrative they currently want to print.
Yes of course the press will create drama and controversy where none exist.. but one doesn't have to feed it unnecessarily. I think they could have made one or 2 speeches abuot her, more about her charity work than the "Oh I remember my dear crazy mother" stuff that they poured out... or made large donation to charity in her memory, for example. I know they only made these speeches affectionately but as you say people on forums, and the press love to twist wrods and create drama...
