Apparently, the Cambridges visited the Sussexes at Frogmore on Easter Sunday?

Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge arrives at the Easter Sunday church service at St.George's Chapel in Windsor Castle on Sunday April 21, 2019

The royal family’s Easter Sunday looked awkward AF from where I was sitting. Harry and William seemed to completely ignore each other, and even from just the still photos, there seemed to be a simmering rage between the brothers. William, Kate and Harry’s appearance at St. George’s Chapel came just hours after the Sunday Times of London published their bombshell report about how William was attempting to exile his more popular brother away to the African continent. The brothers wouldn’t even play nice for a photo-op show of solidarity at church, mind you. But according to Omid Scobie, William and Kate did go to Frogmore Cottage after church to visit with Meghan:

With the arrival of Baby Sussex imminent, it’s no surprise that Duchess Meghan is (quite rightly!) staying close to home before the big day. Her mother, Doria Ragland, has been by her side at Frogmore Cottage with Prince Harry for over a week, and a few close friends, including makeup artist Daniel Martin, have also dropped by for moral support.

Now, the Duchess of Sussex can add more loved ones to the growing list of home visits, after the Cambridges paid a surprise visit to the couple’s Windsor digs on Sunday, April 21. Sources tell that Prince William and Duchess Kate headed to the couple’s new house after attending Easter church service alongside the queen at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

“William and Catherine visited because Meghan was unable to attend the service,” a close source tells BAZAAR. “They wanted to be supportive and see how she is doing. It was a lovely afternoon.”

The visit was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first time at Harry and Meghan’s new house, which they moved into at the start of the month. “Meg and Harry are really settled in now,” a friend of the couple tells BAZAAR. “It’s truly a lovely home and they have done such a great job with the space. So much light and positive energy. I couldn’t think of a better place to start a family.”

Do you believe this? It would certainly go against what we saw with our own eyes on Easter Sunday, which is that William and Harry didn’t even want to be in the same space together. It’s possible that William and Kate really did “surprise” Meghan and Harry, I guess, and came over unannounced and uninvited. Who knows. But those pesky sources certainly do want to clean up the “William wants to exile his brother” narrative.

Something I failed to mention in yesterday’s Anzac Day post – I absolutely love Kate’s chunky-drop earrings – are those DIAMONDS? Or are they quartz or something?

    Doubt it.

    • PlainJane says:

      Pictures or it didn’t happen.

    • Bettyrose says:

      W & K clearly went to meet the new neice & nephew, twins born to H & M two weeks ago in privacy. That’s why no pics. #tinfoilhat #conspiraciescanbereal

      • Mariposa says:

        But they’ve already fled the UK with their baby! (Front cover of Women’s Day magazine in Australia.)

      • bettyrose says:

        Just googled . . . yeah, I don’t blame them.

      • Emme says:

        I wouldn’t blame them for leaving either. I wonder if them leaving the country would make the stories in the press better or worse? Would they lay off after they drove them out of the country?

  2. Abby says:

    Uninvited and surprise visits from in-laws when I’m about to have a baby would stress me the frick out–especially as Meghan seems to be a “hostess” at heart (I can relate). I doubt that happened. If they did go, I hope they gave her a heads up.

    Wishing Meghan and Harry a peaceful last few days in their new home before Baby Polo’s arrival. I hope they’ve been able to create a sanctuary for their family in their home!

    • Melly says:

      I don’t like surprise visits from anyone. When I’m at home it’s no bra time and I walk around looking like a female big lebowski.

    • Lucia says:

      I doubt it was “unannounced” just impromptu. Kate and William said “Hey would Meghan be up for a visit? Kids would love to see her.” I’m sure Harry texted Meghan asking if it’s alright for them to pay a visit. She said yes and they went over.

    • Gia says:

      We don’t know if it was a surprise visit.
      The Royal Family needs good pr and rumours of a spat between William and Harry aren’t good.
      Therefore the latest public pr stuff that basically says that they get along so well. kate and harry doing htat charity visit. And now Will and Kate visiting harry and meghan. Why were they visiting harry and meghan? Well, meghan is preggers and if she is so preggers that she didn’t even want to attend church then she wouldn’t want to get in a car to visit kate and william either. simple as that.

      the whole thing ended up in the press therefore i guess it was a carefully planned pr thing which is supposed to demonstrate who well the brothers and their wives get along.

  3. Oh No says:

    The way this story was framed by some as, ‘Kate organizing a meeting between brothers’ was not smart.

    This is how it happened…

    They rolled up, got a quick house tour.

    Kate hit her with that ‘Ooo, bitch I like this closet.’

    Made some awkward chitchat for 30+ minutes

    Then Kate and Will hopped in the Range Rover. Kate told Will to put his teeth in his mouth and stop looking at her.

    She then proceeded to text Carole and Pippa all the details.

    This was brought to you by the Katie Nicholls school of reporting.

    Enjoy this Twitter takedown

    • Abby says:

      That twitter feed just made my whole morning.

    • Iknow says:

      Whew! They are dragging the hell out of William. The age comparisons and God snatching the rest of his hair are my favorite.

    • Sarah says:

      Thank you SO much for sharing this! Absolutely brilliant.

    • Sharon Lea says:

      Those were hilarious. Prince William was trending on Twitter yesterday, so many people were dragging him for cheating. We have known a few weeks, why did he trend yesterday for it?

      • Oh No says:

        I was wondering what the catalyst was too, like did something weird leak online???

        Either way, I wholeheartedly believe in karma. They did nothing when people came for Meghan, and those Twitter fingers can be lethal

        You just know the people who run Kensington Twitter are scrolling through

        Meghan’s probably hiding in the bathroom right now scrolling through the feed on Doria’s phone so it can’t be traced

      • Iknow says:

        I think the article about him wanting to banish the Sussex’s got tongues wagging and people who normally do not care about the royals learned about the cheating and Big Willy got his attention.

      • Milla B. says:

        Good question. I wonder why is trending now too.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        Yeah it feels like it came out of nowhere. I do know that it initially started trending in the UK and the reaction across the board was basically “wtf, how did we not hear anything about this?” and it spiraled from there.

      • Yoyo says:

        The weekend story about sending Meghan and Harry to Africa was the catalyst with Wills’s fingerprints all over it.
        Black Twitter got involved, called out the Beehive to help, that’s the reason willy was trending.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, I think the whole “exile the black duchess to Africa” story was the tipping point for many people.

      • Mia says:

        I don’t know why he was trending but Black Twitter got involved and it was hilarious. Someone tweeted William Triston Thompson, Kate.

    • Jen says:

      That twitter feed is everything.

    • HK9 says:

      This made my day!

    • Jumpingthesnark says:

      I just about died!!!! Someone needs to point Kate to the twitter thread…. Also, is Willy the PR genius aware that he and the alleged affair are trending in twitter right now??? I’d love to be a fly on the wall when he was told that (would feel sorry for bearer of the news tho’)

    • Olenna says:

      LOL, Oh No! Ayo spoils GOT’s Adot tweet was hilarious! Thank you for some much needed humor!

    • Emme says:

      I believe the cause of the shade towards Prince Baldy on Twitter is due to how he let the racist dogs in the British press off the leash and encouraged them to attack Meghan to draw attention away from his adultery with Kate’s friend. I totally believe it. There had to be a reason that Harry & William were so estranged and it’s because William goaded the already racist press into drumming up lynch mob levels of extreme scrutiny, bitterness, resentment, and hatred towards Meghan. In a perfect world, if it’s true that William did this to his own brother and sister-in-law (and I believe it is), this story would blow up and DESTROY that lazy, devious Prince Cueball and his lazy wife, but the best we can hope for is this somehow blowing up, publicly embarrassing him, and causing him to be hunted down and scrutinized by the media on the scale that Diana was. He hates the press more than anything, so the perfect punishment would be even more of it. I know that sounds mean but this guy orchestrated these public attacks on a pregnant woman to distract everyone from concentrating on him cheating on his wife with one of their close friends. Like…I cannot.

      • Mia says:

        It’s not mean considering some of the extreme Kate fans on twitter want to harm Meghan and Baby Sussex. I haven’t seen this much hatred since President Obama was in office. At least twitter is removing the abusive tweets.

    • Emme says:

      Ultimately, I just want the psychotic attacks against Meghan to stop and I DEFINITELY don’t want them targeting the baby. Maybe for their safety and peace of mind they should leave the UK for a while. And maybe while they’re out of the country, maybe William can mosey his big old horse teeth back over to the press and tell them to back off. He needs clean up the mess he instigated. started. 😡

  4. Lucia says:

    It could be true. I know the feuding Duchesses are far more sexy and sell far more magazines but I think Kate and Meghan actually get on okay. I don’t think they’re besties but I think their relationship is a work in progress. I actually think Meghan couldn’t fake being nice to Kate. I think she genuinely doesn’t mind seeing her. I think William is a surly person a lot of the time and I wouldn’t be surprised if the “feud” is Harry just being sick of William’s crappy attitude towards everything.

    I think the feud is between William and Harry but I doubt even William would deny his kids the chance to spend time with their aunt and uncle. I can see him putting whatever he needs to aside so they can spend time together.

    • KA says:

      I think its true. At various points in life I my siblings and I have been in fights, my sister and brother barely spoke for several years. But we ALWAYS showed up for each other. House warming, birthdays, holidays, special events, even family dinners. Awkward AF but there.

    • sassafras says:

      100 times this. We put up with a lot of BIL/SIL drama because the relationship between our kids – cousins – is important. George and Charlotte might be very excited for Uncle Harry having a new baby to play with. And I agree – that Kate and Meghan have never had problems beyond any normal in law whatever. They’re both smart enough to realize that they both married into this craziness and they ultimately are stronger if they support each other. If the other one isn’t there – then, well, the press only has one target.

      And I might be in the minority about this, but William’s behavior with his brother makes me think he didn’t cheat with Flouride Sheepinghamside. A Wales who has recently cheated on his (adored) pregnant wife should be kissing ass and making friends in the Company right now.

    • gm says:

      This surprise visit was to shut down the negative story about William in the Times. It is not about whether Duchesses like/dislike each other.

      • Lucia says:

        I don’t think everything is a calculated move with them.

      • Becks1 says:

        Not everything is a calculated move, no. But a story like this? Absolutely calculated. The Cambridges visited the Sussexes, and someone wanted the world to know that happened. The “wanting the world to know” is the part that is calculated.

  5. Vanessa says:

    I this story could be true but they all those stories about Meghan were at a fever pitch Kensington palace let those stories go on without even one denied expect for one involving Kate yelling at Meghan . It’s funny how the moment William is involved in a story their such a need to change the narrative within a few days but Meghan and Harry had to suffered for months with vicious attacks without a peep for the palace to defend a pregnant woman .

    • Lucia says:

      I’m starting to wonder if the courtiers have more of a problem with Meghan than the Royal Family actually does. Maybe they can’t pinpoint which courtiers are spewing bile.

      • claire says:

        You are probably right. As we learned from Diana and notwithstanding Charles’ infidelity, it was the grey men (correct term?) that were the real sh*t disturbers and who made her life hell

      • Christina says:

        I think it’s true that they visited, that Meghan knew they were coming, and that it was awkward AF. They are a family, not monsters, and Williams is just another entitled dude who thinks that he deserves sex outside of his marriage. It’s fun to speculate about the deets, though.

  6. Astrobiologiste says:

    According to What Kate Wore, the earrings are blue topaz and diamond.

    • (THE OG)@Jan90067 says:

      I thought Aquamarine…but I think you’re right.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Struck me as blue topaz too.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        @ OG

        I agree with you.

        You’d generally have to artificially heat Topaz to turn it blue (or at least the right shade of blue), whereas Aquamarine naturally has that light blue/green colour.

        Heating it means that Aqua is generally a lot more desirable and expensive than Blue Topaz. Would Kate wear heat treated Topaz? My guess would be no.

        For these reasons, I vote Aquamarine.

      • oddly says:

        Blue topaz are a problem , most people have gone off them and jewellers can barely give them away, there very few natural blue topaz in the world, so clear topaz (very cheap stone) is treated with a radioactive heat blast to make them blue.

        However the heat treated ones are still radioactive because it hasn’t had time to disipate like the untreated stones have over hundreds of years. Minimal radiation of course but really who wants to take the chance wearing radio active earrings right by your brain and thyroid gland.

    • Citresse says:

      They were Diana’s earrings weren’t they.

    • Call_me_al says:

      Thanks for following up on this, those earrings are gorgeous.

      • Citresse says:

        For those who follow the Royal’s jewellery, if HM let MM borrow tiaras from the late Queen Mary, that’s a huge indicator. Let’s watch the next state dinner at BP once MM is back from maternity leave.

  7. claire says:

    Don’t want to read too much into things but I wonder what was meant by “she was unable to attend the service”? Meghan has always been strong, fit and healthy from what I’ve seen so I can’t see why attending church would be such a big undertaking physically. I assume is more about all of the fuss and media attention that would ensue as it does whenever she makes an appearance.

    • Weaver says:

      I don’t care how fit someone is, who would want to attend a highly public service when they are 9 months pregnant and could go into labor at any moment?

    • MissyS. says:

      Meghan is due any day now. It’s not about being physically healthy, it’s about the possibility of Meghan going into labor in the middle of a church service. Babies are unpredictable and can come at any time. Just not worth the risk.

    • Iknow says:

      I doubt Meghan wanted her water to break all over Westminister Abbey. Being fit has nothing to do with a wanting not to be in public, with cameras on you, when your baby decides to make an entrance.

    • Alexandria says:

      If she started labour while in church or interrupting it to go to the toilet she will get more (invalid) bad press. It would be about her ‘disruptive American’ and ‘desperate Hollywood starlet’ ways interrupting a solemn ceremony to get attention.

      • Heather says:

        Remember all the bad press about her wanting air freshener in St George’s Chapel? Imagine if she gushed amniotic fluid on the floors of Westminster Abbey?

      • Kebbie says:

        Lol that gauche American’s water just HAD to break in the middle of Easter service!

      • Feeshalori says:

        OMG, that would have led to a mass evacuation of WA if amniotic fluid threatened the stability of the foundation! Something else to blame Meghan for.

      • Lady D says:

        Westminster Abby has been around since approximately 960AD. I really want to believe that amniotic fluid has been spilled in its hallowed halls in its 1000+ years of history. I also think that the majority of the stories behind the births are sad or tragic ones.

  8. Stephanie says:

    Now for some good press the Cambridges are using the Sussex again. They’re desperate.

    • Mego says:

      Yep throw them under a Range Rover or use them to prop up their image. Whatever works the Lamebridges will do it.

    • Megan says:

      You know what would give them really good press? If they treated the Harry and Meghan with kindness and respect.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      It totally worked! I’ve forgotten all about William’s affair, and the Africa thing, and the smears against Meghan. Just show another picture of the royal tots, and I’ll even defend Britain having a monarchy. Because I’m stupid and easily manipulated.

  9. Kittycat says:

    I really hope with the birth of baby girl Sussex things can turn a page.

    It serves no purpose for Harry and William to be fighting.

    It serves no purpose for completing narratives.

    • Citresse says:

      Is it a girl? You have insider information?
      Harry really wants a daughter. It wouldn’t surprise me if they used sperm sorting. Just as I strongly suspect Kate had artificial insemination sperm sorting to have Charlotte, otherwise the Cambridges would have three sons now.

      • tuille says:

        Serena may have spilled the beans when she referred to the baby as “her” or “she” after the NYC shower.

      • Christina says:

        I read somewhere a few days ago that Serena Williams let it slip accidentally in an interview. It was in the headline. I didn’t read the article to see if the slip was true or what the baby’s alleged sex was.

      • Kebbie says:

        This is what Serena said:

        “She then added, “My friend is pregnant, and she was like, ‘My kid’s gonna do this,’ [and] I just looked at her like, ‘No, she’s not. No, you’re not. She was like, ‘I need to talk to you about tips,’ because, yes, I had all of those high expectations.”

        Serena could be talking about someone else entirely, or she could have said “she” because she’s got a daughter. Like how you walk up to a cat or dog and say “he/she is so cute” and pick whatever gender your own pet is.

        But I do think they’re having a girl just based on how Harry walked straight up to that baby girl in the crowd a couple of weeks ago.

      • Christina says:

        Thanks, Kerbie!

    • (THE OG)@Jan90067 says:

      I’ve been feeling “girl” for some time… don’t know why, but just do 😊 While I think he’ll be a great father for either, just thinking of him with a daughter makes me happy for some reason *¯\_(ツ)_/¯*. Either way, HURRY UP POLO BABY! 🍼

      • Kittycat says:

        I just having been feeling team girl from the beginning.

        But in the end a healthy baby is all that matters.

      • Heather says:

        I’ve been team boy for a while. For the completely unscientific and nonsensical reason that when I was pregnant with my son, I carried the same way, out and proud. Which of course means I’m totally wrong and it’s a girl! (though I have a 50/50 chance of being right…)

      • Lucia says:

        I too am team girl.

  10. Clare says:

    I don’t believe it – but – how great would it be if Kate was like ‘Will grown the F up we are doing this’ and Meg was like ‘Harry please be an adult for 30 minutes’ while they texted each other to organise this.

    We know both princes are spoilt man babies, so I kinda love the narrative that their wives are bypassing them to be adults and play nice.

  11. Char says:

    Harry was like “so, have you guys threw my wife under the bus?” and William answered “don’t be absurd, we’re not peasants, it was a charriot”.

  12. Heather says:

    In my head Prince William went there so Doria could teach him some yoga so he could calm the eff down. Don’t disillusion me, in my head before I finish my morning cup of caffeine it’s playing out perfectly.

    • Alexandria says:

      Nah maybe Angelina Jolie and Oprah were chilling with Meg and they decided to ‘pop by’ lol. That’s my fan fiction.

  13. Kemkam says:

    Theres a part of me that wants to believe that this happened and they at least stopped by for casual conversation and to see the house. But judging by the fact that Will and Harry did not even look at each other walking into church and they had the Tindalls standing between them? I doubt it.

    I also feel like the actual reason for Harry and Will’s fight still isn’t out yet.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I think this was nothing but a pure PR move for public consumption. The Cambridge’s did not want to be there and Sussex’s did not want them there. I hope I am wrong.

  14. Purplehazeforever says:

    Omid Scobie is friendly to the Sussexes & that’s who he used to clap back last week against the being banished from England story. Maybe everyone needs to look at this objectively. The royal courtiers created havoc for Princess Diana & maybe that’s what angered Prince Harry: that his brother didn’t realize or didn’t care enough to figure out who was behind this. It wasn’t enough that it didn’t start with the royal courtiers in Kensington Palace, he wanted his brother to stick up for his wife but instead he only cared about image. Now that these leaks have gone too far & Harry clapping back..light bulbs went off. Royal courtiers, people.

    • Salvation says:

      Omid Scobie writes favourably for BOTH couples, he one of the few that has not taken sides. He actually is one of the few that made a smart decision to not engage in the Meghan smear campaign. He has however in the past posted, with good precise reliability I must say, stuff from the Cambridges themselves and again; he is made a very smart decision to not engage in any Cambridge bashing so his sources are from BOTH the Sussex and Cambridge camps

  15. Erin says:

    Omid Scobie has some pretty good sources in Camp Sussex, and has shown loyalty to them so I’d believe it.

  16. Jen says:

    I think the Cambridges are realizing they have messed up with this feud or gone too far/too obvious so now they’re playing nice or trying to make it seem like they have. Kate and Harry doing a joint appearance, leaks of a “surprise” visit, etc.

  17. FC says:

    What worries me most about this PR piece is that it came from Omid. Did W&K make Omid write this knowing he is H&M’s mouthpiece and it would look more convincing coming from him? Or did the Sussex’s really want Omid to write this? Coming from any other RR it would make sense. This doesn’t fit.

    • Mae says:

      But Omid doesn’t just get his news from the Sussexes. He does have other sources (from KP and CH and BP). It’s more likely that he was approached by someone from KP with this info. As a reporter he felt he had to write it. Notice though how he just stated minimum fact and no personal opinion. He is allowing the reader to make their own interpretation on this “story” about a meet up that supposedly happened the same day as the whole Africa banishment story dropped. Make of that what you will.

      • JadedBrit says:

        @Mae “William sent me as his emissary to belatedly apologise for his appalling racism because he doesn’t have the good grace to and, as Carole raised Pippa and me to be the reincarnation of the Bouvier sisters, think I possess the necessary diplomacy to smooth the way (even though I balk/bolt at the first hint of public speaking. Well. This isn’t really ‘public’, is it. Ignore the Daily Mail reporter in the tree with a microphone. He’s a friend of the family. He’s examining your horticultural changes. No Roses – how kind of… never mind.)”

      • Mae says:

        @JadedBrit Yes! I feel like this is exactly what Omid was ever so subtly trying to get across with his article. Lol. 😅

      • Olenna says:

        LOL, that apology! And, “Bouvier sisters”? You hit the nail on the head.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Chris Ship and Russell Myers are covering this story too, it’s not just Omid. Basically it looks like a coordinated PR push by KP. It’s so obvious.

      • bonobochick says:

        I saw Chris Ship on twitter today saying that he only ever reports facts as the reason why he hasn’t reported on the alleged affair or even the falling out in Norfolk story. I’ve been laughing about that for a while

  18. Royalwatcher says:

    What kind of rude people make an uninvited, unannounced surprise visit to a 9 months pregnant woman who has her mother visiting from abroad. So selfish. And honestly, if they hadn’t been invited to visit up until now (or were invited and declined) then just stay away. Not everything is about you, Cambs!!

    I also love how Omid only reported that they had visited but no details of what went down…but then the RRs and tabloids spun it into the ‘Kate the Savior’ stories that Kate took it upon herself to mend the brothers’ broken relationship and demand that Harry extend an olive branch to Will. Umm…excuse me?! Why would Harry be extending an olive branch?! Shouldn’t that be Will to Harry, or heck, both Cambs to both Sussexes?! The RRs are so vile.

    • MrsBanjo says:

      “What kind of rude people make an uninvited, unannounced surprise visit to a 9 months pregnant woman who has her mother visiting from abroad.”

      The kind of people who need to cover their asses after their bullshit with the media backfired.

    • TheOriginalMia says:

      That was my reaction too! Who does that?! I believe they showed up uninvited and the Sussexes let Omid know that was the case. The Cambridges weren’t invited over, but invited themselves. Instead of allowing William to use the visit and them again, the Sussexes told Omid and framed it as they saw fit. There was no invite to come. They just showed up without asking.

    • Megan says:

      Any member of my family is welcome to stop by my house any time they choose. If it’s not a good time I tell them and they leave.

      • MrsBanjo says:

        Good for you. I don’t appreciate people showing up to my house uninvited, especially if I’m 9 months pregnant. It’s rude. It’s not my job to entertain people at my house because they feel like showing up unannounced. And it’s not actually Meghan and Harry’s job at their own home either.

      • Starkiller says:

        Me too, but there are also no members of my family waging a very public hate campaign against me in the press for the better part of a year. I’d feel quite differently if that were the case.

      • Megan says:

        @MrsBanjo – I don’t consider spending time with people I love a “job,” nor do I think of a cup of tea with a sibling as having to entertain someone.

      • Abby says:

        @megan it would be different if there wasn’t this smear campaign and a rift between the two couples. I had my brother and his wife over once, while we were at odds, and it was very stressful. And it was planned!

    • Lucia says:

      You act like these people don’t have cell phones.

      If this story is true, I’m sure after the service Harry texted Meghan asking if it was alright for all of them to come on over. She said it was fine and they went over.

  19. Goofpuff says:

    Surprise visits are not cute. They are not thoughtful. They are stressful and piss me off. I hate getting surprised At my home because it’s completely asshole move. Excuse me while I have to rearrange and drop what i’ m doing to entertain your inconsiderate ass because you didn’t have the curtesy to ask if i’m available.

    I don’t find this sweet. I find it passive aggressive as F*.

    • L84Tea says:

      My house is a wreck 85% of the time. So if you drop on by, it’s a sure fire way to make me hate you.

    I’m in the school of “the Cambridge’s realized that they were starting to look bad and are trying to backpeddle.” They’re dealing with scandales on both sides (the turnip toff affair and feuding with the Sussexes) and can’t handle it.

    And I think there’s something to be said about changing dynamics. I’ve had friends who’ve been perpetually single. They date, but you know it’s never serious. They’re always a reliable third wheel. But then they find someone and that changes the whole set up, and some ppl have trouble letting go of the old dynamic. I know I’m projecting (but that’s the fun of celebrity gossip), but I wonder if that’s what’s going on a bit here. Harry just seems so personable and fun, and he would add a lot to the image of Kate and Will, who seem so stuffy and tense.

    And i think theres a healthy amount of jealousy too. I remember when Will was considered to be incredibly handsome and Harry was his cute little brother, and that seemed to disappear overnight. That’s got to sting a bit.

  21. Sunnee says:

    I think this story is a cover to deflect from baby Sussex’ arrival. I saw on twitter where there was an ambulance leaving Frogmore. So it’s “let’s keep them busy while we birth this baby” kind of thing.

    • Royalwatcher says:

      It wasn’t there for the Sussexes. It was parked a ways away and was there for some training exercise. Sadly, I don’t think baby is coming quite yet.

      • Lucia says:

        I expect the baby will be here on or around Wednesday. There is no way they could keep a leak for longer than a day if the baby were here.

  22. Flying fish says:

    Could it be that Meghan has given birth and the Cambridge’s went to visit the new member of the family…who knows!

    • Royalwatcher says:

      I don’t think Harry would have gone out that morning (or yesterday to London) if that were the case. Plus I think we would have been told by now if the baby was a week old.

  23. Becks1 says:

    Do I believe they visited them at Frogmore? Yes, because Scobie is a pretty trustworthy source. Do I believe everything is fine and dandy? No.

    For the love of pete though, this better not have been a “surprise visit.” Just….no. Poor Meghan if so.

    Honestly, I wonder if William was told to go over there by the Queen and make nice after that article came out. It was noted earlier that William did not bow his head at the queen, meaning that he saw her earlier that day before the service (but kate curtseyed, so she did not.) I can see Will and Kate stopping by to try to explain in person, and Harry and Meghan saying, “you know what? we’re going to call Scobie and clear this up. Just stay out of it.”

    I don’t think they hung around the whole day (it was easter, I’m sure they already had plans).

    the fact that the visit was made public though DEFINITELY tells me it was damage control. We don’t hear every time they visit each other’s houses (presumably.) I wonder if, as the “William hates Harry” narrative has spread this week, the Sussexes agreed to go to Scobie again to try to cut it off at the head, even though its too late.

    I don’t know. But if it was just a normal visit, and everything is just fine between them, I don’t think we would have heard about it. In addition, if everything was just fine between them, they would have made sure to stand together and laugh or something (William and harry.)

    • Nic919 says:

      The visit was also made public only days after it happened. That’s odd. If it’s from Omid, then I will believe the visit happened. His stick to the facts article doesn’t ascribe saint hood to anyone.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yes, exactly. It wasn’t made public until last night (I think? My twitter feed is annoying at times). So I think it was definitely part of damage control, but it’s also a carefully worded article that doesn’t really go into detail.

    • MsIam says:

      Totally agree. The Cambridges know this exile story made William look awful. Plus it implied he may have been involved in that Thomas Marlow mess. Not a good look for Will at all.

  24. Sassbr says:

    Do we know it was a surprise visit? What if-check this-Megan already had the baby and the Cambridges were making a low key quick first glimpse visit because the story has always been that the Sussexes did not want a lot of attention surrounding the birth? Hmmm

    • Becks1 says:

      You’re the second person to have said this and I’m starting to buy it. They did say that they would announce when she went into labor, but maybe they decided not to.

      But, I cant believe they would have kept the birth quiet for almost a week.

      • Peg says:

        I found that bit about announcing when she went into labor strange, when they wanted privacy for the birth, why set off the rabid dogs.
        What’s the purpose of having reporters on the long walk, it’s not like they see the baby.
        The Windsor shopkeepers must be loving the business, while the residents are resign to have the media looking through their trash.

  25. Anare says:

    I keep getting the feeling Megan already had the baby.

  26. starryfish29 says:

    True or not what’s most interesting is that we’re hearing about it at all. Anyway, if I were 9 months pregnant I wouldn’t want anyone dropping by for any reason, I’d just want the whole world to leave me alone with a tub of ice cream and my Netflix queue.

    • Jumpingthesnark says:

      Oh yeah! Don’t forget the around the house only sweats!!! However, I suspect that for Meghan, even her house only loungewear is still stylish and on point.

  27. MsIam says:

    I think it’s true. The narrative about the exile story has totally flipped to William being “supportive” of H&M from being conniving and manipulative. I think William caught the backlash he was getting and figured out he’d better do something quick. Now whether Kate have him a push, who knows? But I think somebody told him to keep his big mouth shut and play nice with Harry and Meghan.

  28. Sam says:

    I remember reading an article last year when that whole Meghan vs Kate and Meghan is evil narrative really kicked off.It was about Kate not wanting to host Meghan cos she was heavily pregnant and felt she had to so if popping up unannounced to Frogmore on Sunday was true(which i think it is) how is that ok?she may not have been feeling it that day

    • Heather says:

      Then ole Megs will just have to suck it up because Katie Keen will be QUEEEEEN

    • Becks1 says:

      Oh right….that was about Christmas, I think, right? Kate didn’t want Meghan at her house, but it wasn’t personal, she was just pregnant!!!!

    • Smalltowngirl says:

      Well, there is a difference between a brief visit and several days of hosting someone. I mean, I would enjoy a half hour visit while heavily pregnant, I would not be really up to multiple days.

      • Heather says:

        Prince Louis was born in April. She wasn’t “heavily” pregnant at Christmas. Now, she might not have been up to hosting, or may not have wanted to, but she still wasn’t “heavily pregnant”

  29. Peg says:

    Omid Scobie is not going to print lies and get his line into Frogmore Cottage cut off.
    It’s not like the Cambriges were miles away, they were next door, it would be strange if they did not visit.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Agree, just days ago everyone was crowing about how Omid Scobie is basically the voice of Meghan in the media, he always has the truth right from her, etc., now we are doubting??

  30. Kiara says:

    People are reading too much into the Royal family. I hope all these stories about the feuding brothers are lies..just rumors spread by tabloids and blogs.

    • Pringer says:


    • Kylie says:

      Pretty much, I feel some people really want for there to be a feud because they want a juicy story. I feel the same way about the alleged royal feud as I do the recent stories about Britney Spears, which is that it is mostly a fan driven narrative and the truth is probably super boring and just not anyone’s business outside of those close to the situation.

  31. LolaB says:

    This is going to be a really good, bitchy season of “The Crown.”

  32. Ann says:

    Harry was apart from all RF, it was strange bc even Tindals left him . It is all about Billy romance rumors and erson who leaked rumors to press.

    • Yoyo says:

      Why tell untruths? There is YouTube video out there.

      • MissyS. says:

        You have to ignore the trolls. They desperately want to blame Meghan for all the problems of the world. You can show them proof and they would still find a way to make Meghan and Harry the villains.

  33. Lisa says:

    They certainly want to change that cheating narrative.

  34. Guest says:

    Lol…the whole save William is so laughable at this point. They are working overtime. He can’t hide his crap because he thinks he can do a media blackout. Not in this and age thinks to Twitter. It’s a global news platform without the reporters.

  35. nicegirl says:

    This sounds like fiction but if it is true I wonder if H & M were like, “No Archie, Lottie or Lou? Hit the road” – what fun would it be to see those two on Easter Sunday without the doll babies?

  36. Linda says:

    This just confirms to me that we really do not know what is going on with these people. It’s all speculation.

  37. Digital Unicorn says:

    I can believe it happened but it was probably a group of them and not just the Cambridge’s but given William needs an image cleanup it was just them

    Either way it makes the Sussex’s look better than the DoLittles.

  38. Liz says:

    Wouldn’t it be fun if everyone actually got along behind the scenes and are using drama in the press to fuel interest in themselves, the Royal family?

    If they haven’t already united, they will over the baby. The rest of us are being taken for a ride.

  39. tuille says:

    I wanted pics of the kiddies hunting Easter eggs or is that not a Brit thing?

  40. aquarius64 says:

    This visit is too little too late even for damage control. Out of Africa gate and Thomas Markle is William’s useful idiot stories has damaged Billy.

  41. ChiaMom says:


  42. Nik says:

    My gut is telling me that Meghan has already had the baby.

  43. Smalltowngirl says:

    There is a different between surprise and unannounced, I am assuming surprise means it wasn’t originally something they planned/scheduled but when Meghan missed the service, it was decided on. I do wonder if this is a women making the men play nice situation, there are a lot of ways it could have come down.

    I was very bored in the days before I gave birth. I didn’t want to go out too much because I was so uncomfortable (especially anything that involved sitting for long periods) but I really enjoyed having company because you are big and awkward and bored and it’s nice to have a distraction from that.

    • Erinn says:

      Yeah, I’m not reading too deeply into the surprise aspect of the visit. We try to see the nieces and nephews on holidays.

      Also a visit doesn’t automatically mean a few hours of time. It could be a ‘hey, we’re in the neighborhood, wanted to say hi and greet the baby/good luck having the baby’ and move along in the span of a few minutes.

  44. L84Tea says:

    I’d like to think that if they did stop over that day that it was for William to sheepishly explain that morning’s headline….

    Also, man, Harry is a cute little bugger. That photo of him grinning at Kate is sort of adorable.

  45. Lilly (with the double-L) says:

    I wondered about the earrings too, because they’re beautiful. I thought: “Are those please forgive me earrings?” But, the jewellery experts here would know if they’re new or not.

  46. Jen says:

    Those look like her diamond wedding earrings from her parents.

  47. Jen says:

    Ooh, I was looking at her Easter earrings. Love the aquamarines or blue topaz, as well.

  48. FluffyPrincess says:

    I loved Kate’s earrings and her necklace! Yum! They looked beautiful with her outfit!

  49. GR says:

    What’s up with Kate’s Anzac Day outfit? I’ve seem a few photos (they have some over at Gofugyourself) and it appears that Kate is wearing forest green shoes with a bluish-teal outfit? To me it seems like a weird color combo.

  50. Beach Dreams says:

    Several RRs are reporting on this story, so it’s not like Omid got some special inside scoop. KP needs some good PR for their man ASAP, so they’re promoting a 30 minute peace-making visit on Sunday that was apparently orchestrated by Kate the Great. It’s such a blatant attempt at distraction and I have to wonder if KP will ever learn to be semi-competent at PR work. Omid is probably a prime choice for them to go to because he is seen as being one of the few fair royal reporters.

  51. Jaded says:

    KATE: William, stop pouting, we’re going to put our big boy pants on and make nice with the Sussexes. You owe me a big one….

    WILLIAM: I.Am.Not.Pouting.

    KATE: Oh yeah, I totally forgot you have RPF*

    *Resting Pout Face

  52. RoyalBlue says:

    I feel like Meghan had the baby already and the Easter visit was to see the newborn.

    Anyway. That Kate saves the Day narrative is as transparent as ever. Oh please. She went to visit because she is nosy and wanted to see what 3 million gets you for upgrades these days. Then she called Carole to gossip about the American decor.

  53. Cee says:

    Yeah, Kate isn’t the problem here. Look at the way Harry looks at her – he LIKES her.

  54. Deedee says:

    Kate probably dropping off lots of old clothes that Harry wore as a child that she dug out of the archives. Fingers crossed that Baby Sussex gets to wear his/her own baby clothes instead of Harry’s smocked rompers from 1985.

  55. Mtam says:

    Now I wanna hear how the Meghan hating conspirators try and twist this.

    Just a while ago they were here concern trolling, bringing up a clearly fabricated and unsubstantiated blind gossip rumours that Meghan had leaked William’s affair (and that he found out during his spy agency internship—LOLLL!!) and that apparently that’s why she was banned from attending two recent royal events. Bish plz! if that had been in any way true, there’s not way the Cambridges would be visiting her in private. They might not all like each other, but there’s no way Meghan had anything do do with it, specially since she doesn’t run in those circles and from the beginning it was said someone from inside the Turnip Toffs was the source and it had been rumoured to have been gossiped about in their group chats and social events.

    I’m guessing since Harry was with them, then the visit wasn’t a surprise. At the very least he would have been able to call Meghan and give her a heads up. I see no drama in this story. The Cambridges were probably just being polite.

    • MissyS. says:

      Those crazy people blame Meghan for everything. It’s laughable at this point. Meghan must be the most powerful woman in the world to be able to do all the the things she’s accused of doing during her first year of marriage.

      • Heather says:

        How it’s being interpreted so far is that Kate asked asked (or ordered, depending on the hater) Harry to extend an olive branch to his brother because the rift is painful and all Harry/Meghan’s fault. Therefore, Kate was bringing William over there so Harry and Meghan could subjugate themselves in their own living room and beg for his forgiveness.

        I don’t know what is worse, Kate the Savior or Meghan the Miracle Worker/AntiChrist.

        I wish I was being facetious or sarcastic.

      • MsIam says:

        @Heather, haha a likely story! I’m surprised William doesn’t have a boot print on his backside! He just may for all we know.

  56. Casey02 says:

    PW looked guilty AF… it was the day the Times article came out!! If you watch the Easter Service Video everyone either bowed or curtsy, William didn’t bow. He was either being disrespectful or he had already called on the Queen either way…not good for him!! I’m thinking the Queen said to William…” You must go and apologize to Harry and Meghan immediately you A-hole” (use your best British accent). Anyway, Harry looks confident and Kate (poor Kate) she looks like an empty vessel, as usual. So off to Frogmore with tail between the legs they went!! Poor Kate, how embarrassing for her…. I hope those earrings are diamonds and William had to over pay for them..A-hole

    • Becks1 says:

      I actually do think that you are right about the Queen. William clearly had seen her earlier that day, so I do wonder if he was called on the carpet for that article. The earrings from Easter though were from her wedding and her parents paid for them. The earrings from ANZAC day are not new.

    • MsIam says:

      If not the Queen, then maybe PC? That Times article was foul.

      • Anna nuttall says:

        What Times article? Do you have a link?

      • Becks1 says:

        @Anna – check on here from last Sunday/Monday. There were two articles that almost overlapped, so they run together for me, one about how William wants to exile the Sussexes and one about how the brothers need space. Or maybe those were the same article? Anyway, Kaiser covered the whole mess, so check this site from last Monday/Sunday and you should see it.

  57. Casey02 says:

    Has anyone else noticed that since this visit and the Harry/Kate outing the vile DM has been crickets on Meghan. Looks like William may have finally taken his thumb off Meghan….until the next Turnip Gate that is…A-hole!!

  58. Lennie says:

    So harry and Meghan is walking on water and wllliam and Kate is scum of the earth -just like Dayly Mail

    • MrsBanjo says:

      Or William has a long history of throwing his brother under the bus and that’s not something that’s going to change because the brother is now married. In fact, Harry being married to someone who works hard and didn’t grow up in the aristo circles he did means that he’s not as easy a target anymore and so William’s behaviour is now out for all to see.

    • Casey02 says:

      Don’t be ridiculous..Harry/Meghan are walking on water, Kate’s treading and Willams drowning.

  59. Guest says:

    Lainey has a great write up. KP and these courtiers are acting like its 30 years ago. Times have changed and with social media the game has changed but they are stuck in the 70s

    • Becks1 says:

      I don’t agree with a lot of Lainey’s viewpoints re: the royals, but this one I did. The courtiers are playing the game the way they played it 30 years ago, and they cant figure out why they are getting “outplayed.”

  60. Lene malan says:

    No one nows anything… stop it! You on this page is helping the over take from gossip pages. Stop it!

    • MrsBanjo says:

      This is a gossip page. Literally. If it’s not your thing, there are plenty of non-gossip sites for you elsewhere.

    • Guest says:

      It’s a gossip site.

      Then again it didnt help matters that times article the 2nd a lot about William. Guess KP should have better thought just how bad it made William sound before they released with quotes from people who work for the royal family and even named them 🤷‍♀️

    • MsIam says:

      Calm down dear, lol. People are only commenting on stories that are already out there in print. That is all.

    • anon says:

      LOL! Ordering people around, how royal of you!

    • notasugarhere says:

      You are free to leave at any time.

  61. A says:

    I don’t see why this couldn’t be true. I can absolutely see William and Harry very grudgingly sitting in the same room together, not speaking to each other, while Kate awkwardly tries to make small talk with Meghan, who’s nothing but gracious. Like that one dinner scene from Shrek 2, when Shrek is meeting Fiona’s parents, and her dad is just silently fuming at the situation.

    Jokes aside, I don’t think it’s out of the question that William is finally realizing on some level that he’s fcked up. I don’t think he particularly cares about the fact that he’s screwed up PR wise, but I definitely think it sort of irks him that he’s on the outs with his brother like this. I don’t think he knows how to fix it, because it’s likely he’s really never apologized properly to anyone in his life before, and Harry would absolutely want a proper apology. Maybe he’s hoping that if he sits in silence with Harry enough times, the sheer awkwardness will just make them want to put things behind them.

    • Becks1 says:

      I’m laughing so hard at your imagery. “The sheer awkwardness.”

      Besides that, I do think you could be right. William may finally (FINALLY) be thinking “oh sh!t, this escalated quickly.” Or maybe its the kind of thing where he’s not necessarily sorry, he’s just sorry he got caught. But I can see Kate and Meghan sitting there making awkward small talk while Harry and William glower at each other.

      Meghan: “Are the kids enjoying London in the Spring?”
      Kate: “we are going back this week from Anmer.”
      Meghan: “oh right, how has your month break in Norfolk been?”

      I love Meghan and think she is probably very classy and gracious in real life, but I feel 100% confident she can throw some shade when she needs to.

      • notasugarhere says:

        “he’s not necessarily sorry, he’s just sorry he got caught”

        Story of William’s life. Always getting away with it, at least until now.
