Carole Middleton publicizes the fact she’s not going to publicize herself right now

The 46th AFI Life Achievement Awards

Poor Prince Philip. At first, everyone seemed very concerned about his hospitalization. There were macabre “death watches” and palace aides were speaking in hushed tones about how dreadful it would be for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex if Philip were to pass away before, during or immediately after their Oprah interview. After more than a week of that storyline, Philip has been largely forgotten, especially with Kensington Palace launching their Keen Bullying Smear Campaign. Royals and royal aides are no longer using “but Philip is in the hospital” as their go-to excuse for anything. Well, thank God the OTHER Queen is dusting off that excuse. Carole Middleton, Queen of Bucklebury, Princess of Pot Farms, wants us to know that she is also taking a step back out of respect for her dear hospitalized husband, Prince Philip.

Carole Middleton pulled out of a publicity drive for her business because she didn’t want to be “insensitive” to Prince Philip. After liaising with Prince William and daughter Kate, she asked publishers of Good Housekeeping magazine not to promote her cover interview because she didn’t want to upset the royals whilst the 99-year-old remains in hospital.

Her decision comes in the wake of mounting criticism for Harry and Meghan who have filmed an explosive tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey. Whilst their controversial two hour TV special airs on Sunday night, Carole refused extra promotion for her business Party Pieces following the interview which was conducted in January.

Last night a source said: “Carole is incredibly proud of her company and all the hard work that goes into it. But whilst backing the business, she didn’t want to turn any news into a media circus because she is so respectful and sensitive to Catherine, and the royal family. She always gets William’s go-ahead before any interview like this, and he is incredibly supportive. But the more the PR machine rolled out in Los Angeles with Meghan and Harry, the more sensitive Carole became. She decided she didn’t want to do any PR for the interview – even if it cost her thousands in potential lost marketing.”

So the interview is still out there. The magazine was still published and anyone can read Queen Carole discuss Party Pieces or her grow operation or whatever. But she’s not going to HYPE the interview. Out of respect for dear Philip. ‘Tis a shame the other Queen does not have Carole’s reserve and quiet dignity. Instead, Philip’s actual wife is being dragged into some massive PR catastrophe instigated by Carole’s daughter and son-in-law.

    These people are so transparent and have the worst PR I’ve ever seen.

    • GraceB says:

      Carole especially is. She’s shocking.

    • Steph says:

      I’m completely flabbergasted by how bad their PR is.

    • Becks1 says:

      THIS part of it has been really hilarious, because its so transparent.

      Carole is getting more publicity for saying she’s not going to publicize it than she would have for the actual PR “drive” or whatever.

      • Lemons says:

        I mean, in that way, it’s genius! Carole is honestly a step ahead, but that unfortunately still places her firmly below being an aristocrat, and that’s all that matters to her.

      • Nic919 says:

        It’s funny but also incredibly tacky, which basically confirms what the aristos have been saying about her for years. There was no need to insert herself in this mess. Because she is part of why this has been so bad. Perhaps had she raised her daughters to not be so insecure some of this racist smearing wouldn’t be happening.

      • As always BECKS1…..👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 Queen Carole knows how to sell herself.

  2. Kate says:

    That photo of Carole with the hat in her hand is everything hahahaaaa

  3. Mac says:

    The most fascinating bit of news here is that Good Housekeeping still exists.

    • Lizzie says:

      i know, right? As if an article about party pieces is on anyone’s radar.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Or that Party Pieces still exists. Amazon hasn’t obliterated her business yet?

      • Nic919 says:

        Uncle Gary’s shady money and the pot farm are what keeps it afloat. The new GDPR rules about third party lists would have killed a lot of their business a few years ago.

      • anotherlily says:

        A police investigation into money laundering would obliterate it. Even selling customer data wouldn’t account for their millionnaire lifestyle.

  4. Lauren says:

    Has anyone asked her about the weed farm next to her manor?

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      That came and went so quickly without any news of any follow up only on a way where hush/bribe money was handed out.

      A grow of that size took a crew that worked full shifts and probably turned out a few million a year. We know Carole needed money and we know Uncle Gary needed a safe space to grow.

      The original article stated the farm was found adjacent to the Midds land, but it was noted the barn was actually ON their land.

      • I hadn’t heard this story. Too funny. William and Kate obviously don’t toke because neither of them is at all mellow. Maybe, they should try it and chill the F**k out.

        Also, once again, we see how if a Royal doesn’t want press on a story then no press is given….and yet not one finger could be lifted to kill even one story of the media nastiness towards Meghan.

      • anotherlily says:

        Uncle Gary deals in hard drugs too, as he openly boasted about in 2010. His multi-million ‘recruitment’ business also appears to have some common ground with the likes of Jeffery Epstein. The Middleton/Goldsmiths have been lying low since the introduction of UWO legislation ( ‘Unexplained Wealth Orders’.) A business marketing small, low value items sourced from the Far East is an ideal cover for money laundering.

  5. Cee says:

    She really thinks she’s something special, doesn’t she?

  6. L84Tea says:

    She’s an absolute joke. Carole, nobody cares about you.

  7. sara says:

    god she’s awful. and she doesn’t even realize how awful she is.

    • Myra says:

      Right? How crass! She just used both Philip, still in hospital, and Meghan to get publicity for herself and her money.

  8. aquarius64 says:

    Go somewhere and sit down Carole. If Willie divorces Kate the Middletons would be nothing

    • HeatherC says:

      The Middletons will be less than nothing. If they divorce, everything the BRF are throwing at Meghan and Harry will be thrown at the Middletons tenfold.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        HeatherC, I keep thinking that after this sh*t show, the interview, and ensuing sh*t show, it might be a good time for William–if that’s his intent–to divorce. He can throw Kate under the steamroller and flatten her by laying all of this at her door. Man, I hope if that happens that Carole gets flattened, too.

  9. Lanie says:

    No one was even thinking about her little struggle paper plate/party hat business, but go awff Middleton Karen 1.0.

    Philip probably doesn’t even know this lady’s name.

  10. Liz version 700 says:

    If Kate is The FFFQ English Rose does that make Carol the manure that nurtured said rose? As opposed to the Rosebush who is nurturing Will?

  11. RoyalBlue says:

    My God, she is so transparent.

  12. Southern Fried says:

    I’m thinking PimpMama Carole will come to regret her part in the hounding of Meghan. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Hurry up, Carole, as you try to trash all the evidence of your filthy deeds.

    • Nic919 says:

      The Firm will toss Carole under the bus in a second if they need to blame her for the smear campaign.

  13. Sofia says:

    I don’t think Philip is thinking of you Carole nor does he care what she does but if it helps her sleep at night

  14. BearcatLawyer says:

    Philip does not care about her crappy grifting nor the money laundering front that is PP. in fact, no one cares if she promotes anything.

  15. Seraphina says:

    Kween Carole. And her daughter Princess of Keen Catherine. That’s all I have for this piece. Oh yes, and Lord help us when her daughter finally becomes QC. I like that: QCC.

  16. S808 says:

    Carol is so desperate and shameless it’s hilarious.

  17. Digital Unicorn says:

    Hahahaha – she is SOOOO obvious, typical Middleton PR stunt to rid on someone else press cycle, just like her daughter and SIL.

    She cannot handle that NO ONE is interested in her, her business or whatever she has to say about anything. It must burn so bad.

    Also its worth remembering that Ma Mid herself has been accused of bullying in the workplace – remember the Party Pieces whistleblower. Kate is Carole’s daughter in many many ways. Lets also not forget how involved Carole was/is in the running of KP, esp the press team.

  18. Osty says:

    Go away Carole, no one cares about you. Also how ironic is saying ” I don’t want publicity by calling the press to tell them that “

  19. Shoo fly says:

    What exactly is her success story? Their son in law helped pay for their current home. Three children with the best educations money can buy, not a single career. Two daughters who are kept women. Dress in sheer clothing in front of aristocrats isn’t doable for most people.

  20. Maevo says:

    This is just bizarre. I guess she knows she’s going to get ripped for this interview coming out now so she’s trying to get ahead of it. But god everything is such a mess right now with these people.

  21. Steph says:

    She needs to find a corner and take a seat. She’s about as useful as that e at the end of her name.

  22. Osty says:

    Also leave it to Carole Kardashian to remind pple how perfect her family is, how respectful they are to their bosses ( RF), and how most importantly she makes sure incandescent approved of whatever she does , letting him know how important he is in her life. Something harry and his” rude “wife refused to do

  23. Phoenix says:

    I am dying! This is hilarious
    I actually have a question- do you guys know how their buisness was so successful that they were able to put their children into expensive colleges?
    I’ ve read that before marrying to William Kate’s worth was already big and it all came from her work for her parents!? Can you guys spill the tea for me cause I don’t buy this s*it

    • Lemons says:

      Google Uncle Gary. He’s the likely financier of the Middleton clan. Party Pieces may have done well in the past, and may be chugging along by being royal adjacent, but it certainly did not afford them the lifestyle they have now.

    • MaryContrary says:

      Supposedly, Mike Middleton’s family had money put away for the kids’ education. Their finances are super shady because there is no way they could have the lifestyle they’ve had (the big houses, London apartment, resort trips, ownership of racing horses) based on just Party Pieces money-it’s not some kind of empire. I think Carole’s brother (the shadiest relative of them all) made tech money and he either has helped them out over the years, or there’s been some kind of money laundering for him.

    • Nic919 says:

      Mike Middleton had trust money for their schooling, but uncle Gary is behind the operation. He’s the one who had a place in Ibiza, called Maison de Bang Bang where William and Kate went more than once. Once Kate was linked as the girlfriend, Carole was then able to get discounts and freebies being royals adjacent, which she did for the better part of a decade.

      And with the mysterious pot farm, there is likely more going on.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Don’t forget that house where William was seen partying a few times was the same house Gary was caught on camera selling drugs to undercover reporters. Drugs he hid in the house. That was a drug house. FFK frequents known drug house owned by know dealer. And human trafficker *cough*

    • anotherlily says:

      Money laundering for Uncle Gary’s drug running and pimping operations.

  24. Kfg says:

    When PWBT sees how badly he looks in this, he will have his excuse to divorce Waity for causing this with her jealousy. I bet he files this summer and Charles asks for Harry to come back with Meghan

  25. Merricat says:

    Desperation, thy name is Middleton.

  26. Lizzie says:

    Humble brag.

  27. Flying Fish says:

    Wait, What, Who?

  28. Merricat says:

    I think we know Waity isn’t going to look good if all the covers are pulled back on KP. Once a mean girl, always a mean girl.

  29. February-Pisces says:

    Never knew there was an interview out there….until now. Thanks Carole for publicising the fact you not gonna publicise an interview that’s already out there. I’ve got a feeling she’s running scared. But of course she’s just being thoughtful to Prince Phillip 🤮🤮🤮🤮

  30. lucy2 says:

    Oh such sacrifice! What a brave, strong woman, to give up a fluff piece interview and thousands in free publicity for a private business! Surely she is comparable to all the WWII heroes from England, right? Perhaps they should put up a statue in her honor, so school children for years to come will learn of her sacrifice.

    “Carole Middleton, who bravely postponed a Good Housekeeping cover in the year of our Lord 2021.”

    • SarahCS says:

      Time for some kind of royal honour surely. At an appropriate time of course.

    • But she didn’t postpone it. It’s already out there, she just not going to publicize it —— ha, ha, ha —- out of respect for Prince Phillip. Please….none of us are that stupid.

  31. MellyMel says:

    She HAD to drag herself into the narrative…girl BYE! So desperate

  32. Lorelei says:

    LMFAOOOOO she’s so eager to tout her own horn here that she doesn’t even realize she just inadvertently admitted that under any normal circumstances, the palace *would* be “upset” at her attempts for publicity.

    Now I’m more curious about that than about anything else she actually said. She is not the sharpest tool in the shed, good god.

  33. bettyrose says:

    This is such a high school move, and it reminds me of how glad I am that when I was in high school no one warned me that high school never really ends. Not sure I could’ve coped as a teenager if I’d really known the truth about adults. (not that Carole Middleton should be held up as an example of maturity, but let’s all admit we personally know people who insert themselves into narratives in this same fashion.)

  34. IntheKnow says:

    Kaiser, you are on fire today with these pictures!!! I needed the LOLs. First in the other article with William looking like he’s trying to reverse a ‘shart’ as Kate desperately tries to move her forehead. Now this pic of the succubus Ma MiddleScam looking like she’s about to unhinge her jaw.

  35. Well Wisher says:

    Did she get her advice from Paul Darce the Editor-in-chief DM Media?
