Hello Jo, thanks for the welcome! Although I think I might just keep Fabio to myself ;)

Now this makes me laugh, i don't know what to make of it really.

Photos of the youngest Middleton that are sure to embarrass Kate! | Mail Online

Just another smear campaign by the Daily Mail on a slow news day. They can't get any dirt on Kate herself, so its off to the family members. At this rate, William would be lucky to have any girl and her family take him on.

Big deal. Looks like the usual little brother antics to me. I'm not impressed. My brother did the same kind of stuff when he was younger. I don't see how what he does affects Kate's future in the royal family. Meh.

Well good for you to find humor in it, because I just find it very upsetting. How horrible it must be for the Middletons to have their family ridiculed publicly... and from very biased internet sources no less. If they have no stories to tell and need to lift some content online, why not lift from more mature internet sites such as this?

Ella Kay 08-30-2008 10:01 PM

Just goes to show that the Mail has officially run out of things to write. It's so disgusting that their "journalists" have resorted to reprinting forum postings in their articles -- and that they've decided not only to go after Kate but also her family. I'll bet Prince William's going to be ticked.

So, is this "Nathan Kay" who "wrote"/copy-and-pasted that article related to Richard Kay?

those photos are so funny. people are so desperate to find something really bad about her that they had to look at her brother.

Duke of Marmalade 08-31-2008 04:26 AM

For people who live in the UK and see the tabloid headlines flashing every day these pictures are not even worth a second look. We are used to see stuff like this every day. Yesterday it was someone from the Big Brother House, today Kate Middleton's brother, tomorrow one of the Geldof girls. There is no difference anymore and I don't believe that anyone will think differently of Kate because of these pictures, nobody is bothered by what her brother does. I wouldn't be surprised if there are pictures that show William or Harry in similar positions as parts of their lives don't seem to be any different from the life of the ordinary british lad. Whether this is good for the monarchy or not is a different question. Regarding Kate, I think people judge her entirely on what they see from her and not on what her family does. Nobody is really interested in the Middletons, they are rather normal and can do what they want but these rules stopped applying to Kate herself when she started publicly dating Prince William.

I think he's hilarious. That won't embarrass Kate. 21 year old blokes are not usualy known for their stoicism and maturity. What a cracker!

Ahh slow news days, you can't beat them.

If nothing else, the photos show Kate is by far the least exuberant of the Middletons. She has shown an incredible level of retraint not to have any photos over the last five or six years in similar states.

Isana 08-31-2008 09:05 AM

I guess Kate is just intelligent enough to understand that one shouldn't put any such pictures on facebook if there's media interest in you. Doesn't mean they don't exist but they'll not end up in the wrong hands as easily. James may simply have underestimated how far the press would go for a juicy story.

sneeuwklokje 08-31-2008 09:36 AM

Well, it's not as half as bad as Prince Harry showing up in a Nazi-uniform anyway:whistling:

putski 08-31-2008 08:50 PM

Something from The Sun...

Apparently Pippa's camera flashcard had been stolen. It contained personal pictures of Wills and Kate in Mustique.... and (drumroll) The Sun helped retrieve it without publishing the photos. Wow, someone wants to be in favor with the royals! But really, kudos to them for doing the right thing.

Yes, they did the right thing. I give credit where credit is due.:smile:

Actually, I don't think The Sun has a choice in the matter: printing the photos will probably be considered a crime since the items were product of a theft. If you read the article closely, The Sun did the best to discribe the photos in details. I'm sure they are skirting the letter of the law in the discriptions. If they were truly doing the right thing, they would have the police take over the undercover operation instead of sending their own paps to view the photos first.

Well said Putski!;)

ghost_night554 09-01-2008 12:20 AM

I know this is just purely selfish of me but I would have loved to seen those photos, I think it's cause we never see them being very intimate.

TonyaR 09-01-2008 12:58 AM

I'm just as selfish as you've called yourself ghost_night554. I want to see those photos too! I'm glad they were able to apprehend the thieves and get Pippa's camera back to her, but I also wish we had been able to see those photos of William and Catherine. :lol:

It's a dilemma for sure, wanting to be sensitive to the overblown media exposure William and Catherine have to continually experience, and wanting to satisfy my personal curiosity to see them being warmer towards one another in public than we usually get to see.

Elspeth 09-01-2008 01:29 AM

I've deleted and edited a few posts about the Daily Mail article. Could I just remind everyone about this rule:
  • Discussion of other forums and websites should be limited to royal-related content. We do not allow criticism of other forums or continuation of disagreements that started elsewhere.
I understand that in this case the other forum is itself part of the story, but I think we can do without some of the name-calling that was going on.

Thanks for understanding.
