Prince William celebrated Father’s Day with George & Charlotte in Norfolk

Kensington Palace posted the message, above, on Father’s Day, which was yesterday. There’s a photo of William in his military dress uniform with all three kids – we’ve never seen that photo before, and it’s cute. William also gave the people what they wanted: more photos of his kids, with a Father’s Day outing in Norfolk. Kate was not there and neither was Louis. William, George and Charlotte attended the marathon event at Sandringham.

Where was Kate? Where was Louis? Was this William’s weekend with the kids? Did Kate let him see the kids for Father’s Day? That’s the vibe of this. And can I just say? William has really been very quiet since the Scotland tour. He was only at the G7 Summit briefly, and I heard that he took the helicopter out of the summit pretty quickly. And… that was like his only “event” in two weeks before this appearance in Sandringham. What’s going on with him? It could be gardening activities but it feels… odd.

Meanwhile, today is William’s 39th birthday. Still an incandescent rage-filled man-child regardless of age.

    He is literally turning into Voldemort. It’s like every time he attacks the Sussex’s he rips out a piece of his soul. He’ll have the head of a snake soon.

    • Over it says:

      Yes. He is now a year older bigger assholes. May his day suck just like him

    • Miranda says:

      See that little watering can? Horcrux.

      • Chaine says:

        I wasn’t expected the watering can photo at all. I laughed out loud, what on earth event was he at where this happened?

      • Snuffles says:

        🤣 Totally a horcrux.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Chaine – he was at an event at a gardening center, I think it was for an organization that helps men process mental health issues through gardening? Like it supports the idea that gardening can be very therapeutic and the program is specifically designed to help men.

        I’m saying this bc I think it was this event where William was like “yeah my wife does all the gardening.”

      • notasugarhere says:

        When really, the gardener and team do all the gardening. But Willy, being Willy, has to forcing trying to sound ‘normal’ and ‘down-to-earth’.

      • observer says:

        No one would suspect!

      • Normades says:

        This was such a terrible thing to say. It’s a program for men and he comes off as a sexist asshole.

        My husband is a type A personality with a very stressful job. Gardening is totally therapeutic for his nerves.

  2. Nomegusta says:

    I appreciate that they didn’t dress those children like Victorian Era orphans.

    I do think a picture would have been enough. I think keeping those kids away from that cruel Rota machine should be their parents #1 priority. Don’t parade them around, just release bday/holiday photos and let them grow up away from it all. They will be forced to contend with it their house entire adult lives.

    • The Hench says:

      Yeah. There was absolutely no need to trot them out to start a fun run. Zero. Zip. Zilch. It’s not like there aren’t plenty of staff to keep an eye on them at home if Keen has ‘research about research’ to do and is busy.

      ETA that I agree with JT – the only reason is for their own PR. This is entirely self-serving on William’s part.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Those kids look so uncomfortable. I wonder if they’ve seen Dad in the previous weeks. I wish they were being sheltered a bit longer from the RR feeding frenzy..

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Yup. William’s going to perpetuate the cycle of resentment with his kids. He’s talked so often about how he hated being trotted out for the cameras as a kid and here he is now, doing the exact same thing with his own children. I hope he’s prepared for at least one of them to insult and undermine him when they become adults.

      • Cecilia says:

        To be honest, i kind of do understand why they are introducing their kids to the public eye. Whether the kids like it or not, they are going to be working royals and there’s going to be full media attention on them. And especially George as future monarch should get used to this. The kids aren’t hounded by paparazzi when out with their parents so in that regard its absolutely more subdued and controlled than what william and harry had to go through. Introducing them to all this by bringing them to these kiddie friendly type of events seems like a good thing to do.

      • Ginger says:

        Yes, these kids will have to be more prepared for the public. George acts like he is absolutely terrified to be around people. I feel so bad for him. I know the press paints Charlotte as “feisty” etc, but she seems pretty scared of the public as well. But they do need to be more prepared. I know they claim to want to give them a more normal life but this is their reality. It’s also odd how they never include Louis.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Cecilia, nothing is given. With Harry’s successful departure, the slimdown may reach to William’s kids. If there is still a monarchy by then? We might see only George as a working royal, with the other two required to go out and earn a living.

      • Becks1 says:

        I kind of understand bringing the kids (especially George) for the reasons Cecilia said – look at how other royals are handling it – for ex in Spain, we’re seeing Leonor more, she’s giving speeches, etc. Felipe and Letizia IMO did a good job of allowing her privacy while also exposing her to public duties.

        But I think what the Cambs do is different, its not about exposing the kids, its about photo ops and distraction.

    • Jegede says:

      Actually considering how articulate other royal children like Princesses Estelle, Leonor et al. are, the argument can be made that by keeping his children, – esp FK George closed off- he’s done them few favours.

      George always looks so nervous in public. Bless.

    • TabithaD says:

      George always looks kind of super-anxious to me. I know he’s going to be king one day (assuming his dad doesn’t completely stuff up the Monarchy first – a distinct possibility) but he’s still just a little boy. I wish they’d leave the kids out of it.

  3. OriginalLala says:

    Kaiser you continue to choose the very best pics of Baldemort and they always make me giggle!

  4. L. Heath says:

    When I read last week about the possibility of Kate and William “spending more time in Scotland” I ihad the mmediate thought that Charles was responding to their recent flurry of “embiggening” articles (William as the future king, Kate as the rock and future of the empire, etc.) By threatening to send them to Scotland, I think Charles just yanked their leash and told them to behave.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I saw it as a precursor to a hidden separation, esp with the talk of them looking at schools in Berkshire. Kate in Berkshire with kids and Mummy Carole, reluctant William ‘forced’ to spend time away from family shoring up against Scottish independence.

      • Becks1 says:

        I’m hoping we have a post about it over the next few days (the Berkshire thing) so I’ll just say that i definitely think they are close to a separation, hidden or not, and Kate is going to move closer to her parents.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Sending the kids to a school in Berkshire also kinda explains why her siblings are buying property/businesses close to Mummy – remember that odd story about Pips buying a petting zoo (i think they mean her husband bought it).

        There is def something going on – the Middletons have been spooked for a while and the recent stories tell me that they are shoring up for something big. I’m beginning to think that the story that the press are sitting on is not his affairs but their separation (pending divorce). Thats what the tabloids have on them to use to beat them with. I think one of the real reasons why Cain is so angry all the time now is that since Sussexit he hasn’t been able to progress with any official divorce/separation proceedings. I don’t doubt these stories about strife between the brothers but they are also to hide that fact that the Cambridge marriage has imploded and the ‘firm’ is trying to limp it along until TQ passes. He wants out, she won’t go quietly without a large settlement and her title (the royal status is EVERYTHING to her and her family, no way she will give that up without a fight).

      • notasugarhere says:

        If he paid for a large part of her family’s new house, William could argue that was a post-nup.

        She would lose the HRH, that is automatic after the Letters Patent the Queen issued at the time of Charles and Diana’s divorce. Anyone who divorces out of the family loses the HRH. She’d have the divorced form of the title he has at the time of their divorce. Once he becomes Duke of Cornwall and eventually is named Prince of Wales? She would have no access to those titles. She’d be left with Cambridge while William, kids, and new wife move on to using ‘Wales’.

    • Christine says:

      If they were remotely intelligent, they would take him up on it. I would LOVE to live in Scotland, and I even work!

  5. Cws says:

    Do you think he’s had long Covid?

    • Snuffles says:

      Or still has? Maybe. He doesn’t look healthy.

    • bamaborn says:

      He definitely does not look like someone who is well. It’s like it has gone past rage and dislike of the Sussexes.

      • The Duchess says:

        It’s all the stress catching up to him. Things won’t end well if he continues on down this path of incandescentness.

      • Feeshalori says:

        His blood pressure alone must be sky high.

      • Ginger says:

        It’s the stress of selling your soul to the UK media. He has to keep providing for them and he has nothing on Harry and Meghan. It’s catching up with him cause they will expose him if he doesn’t deliver. Oh well.

    • The Recluse says:

      Wondered the same thing when I looked at those pics. Something seems off about him health wise.

  6. ce says:

    Can anyone lend me some context to. The assumption that will and Kate don’t live together? I keep seeing this come up but not a lot of real evidence to support it – unless I missed something?? Please help?

    • Becks1 says:

      It definitely is just an assumption lol, but here is why its a theory that’s gaining steam for many of us:

      1) William made a weird comment in 2019ish that implied he didn’t see his kids that much. why not? He doesn’t work that much, presumably he and the kids all live in the same house – why doesnt he seem them?

      2) There was a weird story around the time of Rural Rival-gate about how William was often alone in Norfolk and that was why he hung out with Rose Hanbury – they had dinner together and went for long walks or something (that part of the story got scrubbed.) Why was he alone in Norfolk without Kate and the kids?

      3) he apparently got a bad case of COVID in April 2020 and no one else in the family got sick. Now maybe that means he just quarantined really well immediately, but still, its interesting, right?

      4) they suddenly started doing zoom calls from Sandringham this fall. It made zero sense – Anmer Hall is big, they could have zoomed from there with no issues like they had done for months before – why the switch? It does make sense though if you consider that William was living at Sandringham and refused to go back to Anmer for work and instead they based their operations at Sandringham.

      There have been a few other incidents like that that I can’t remember at the moment, but of course all of the above is just circumstantial and speculative. But it starts to add up especially when you consider all of the buzz from reporters about how they are holding back on William.

      • JT says:

        Even Kate herself mentioned that William wasn’t around for the first six months of George being born and pretty sure she had to drive herself to the hospital. I think one time they showed up to an event in separate cars, even though they, presumably, came form the same place.

      • Sid says:

        The Zoom calls at Sandringham are an eye-raiser. Absolutely no reason for them to do that when as you said, they have a huge home of their own just a couple of miles away. Unless they were doing major renovations at Anmer and didn’t want the public to know they were wasting money, the switch to Sandringham makes no sense. Unless that’s where WIllileaks has based himself.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        The Cambridge marriage always was an arrangement with both W&K getting what they wanted out of it but something has changed in the past few years. Its coming clearer to me that he wants out of the marriage – whether thats down to him meeting someone else or seeing how happy Harry is with his wife or maybe a combination of both. Who knows but something changed and they cannot stand to be together for any length of time.

        Their engagements aren’t getting them any positive press and neither is throwing the Sussex’s under the bus – so that leaves the children and that won’t last too long.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Sid, he may have been at Wood Farm, since Philip moved out to ‘bubble’ with the Queen most of last year. Doing Zooms from the main house at Sandringham, no longer at Anmer, would cover that too. I see him wanting to be coddled by staff (Wood Farm), without feeling like every move is watched (Sandringham House).

      • Nic919 says:

        Wood Farm is where Philip had his peccadilloes so with him gone, the setup it still there for William. And the news of the zooms moving to Sandringham took place only a few months after we were told Philip was staying at Windsor castle.

      • Sid says:

        Wood Farm does make a whole lot of sense. This is all getting very interesting.

        I want to go back and find that odd story about Willileaks picking up laundry early one morning.

    • notasugarhere says:

      As an aside, I find it amusing when people claim there’s no evidence of unhappiness or separation between these two. That is a line frequently taken by Kate stans. ‘They’re blissful, you have no proof otherwise’. To which I reply, have you been paying attention for the past 20 years?

      • The Duchess says:

        I find it amusing when they use the ‘oh, it was the sussex squad who made up the affair rumours. it’s not true at all!’ line too. Last I saw, it was the blue ticks who started spilling about the affair, until all their tweets were mysteriously wiped… as for the Cambridge fans, well they know that marriage is dead. They’re just too ashamed to admit defeat.

      • Cecilia says:

        @NOTA: All they have to do is take a good look at williams face and it would tell them enough.
        1. He never looks at kate. Not even when she is giving him heart eyes and grinning like a maniac or hysterically laughing at something he said.
        2. Whenever she speaks he looks either embarrassed or utterly bored.
        3. Every time they do touch each other it looks incredibly awkward.

        One thing that sealed the deal for me regarding their marriage was the Scotland tour. They might never divorce but willy isn’t happy and his wife is clearly not giving him any comfort.

        I also wonder with the latest hit pieces on h&m if william has been cheating again.

      • Jais says:

        There was a weird story over the weekend about the Cambridges possibly looking into a new school for the kids over the wknd. I didn’t click on it because it might’ve been DM? But could see the title and article pic with it. Must’ve been an old pic but it really struck me because William was smiling at this young pretty blond teacher in a way that he never smiles at Kate. It was kinda sad cuz I was like wow if he smiled at Kate like that at their events we wouldn’t be discussing this so much. The difference was stark!

      • Dee says:

        There’s also the added hedges to hide helicopter comings and going at Anmer. There’s the odd story about Wills working out with the school moms. Also, the dad dancing adventure. Will going to a Jecca’s wedding without Kate. All the embiggening Kate stories of late, how she’s the key to the success of the monarchy (Why?).

      • Nic919 says:

        I still see derangers trying to say Nicole Cliffe invented the affair story even though she at most commented on all the earlier “confirmations” from people like Giles Corden, who then cowardly deleted their tweets. The derangers basically drove her off Twitter as a result. They also forget that Tom Sykes of the Daily Beast also confirmed he was told about the affair from a daughter of an Earl.

        And more than one British media person has strongly hinted at the press keeping a few William stories under wraps at the moment.

      • Sid says:

        Heaven knows every marriage is different and appearances can be deceiving, but we have so many examples of working royal couples looking quite comfortable and content in each other’s company during engagements. Charles and Camilla. Felipe and Letizia. Victoria and Daniel. Willem and Maxima. When ish hits the fan it gets hard to hide, like the body language between Haakon and Mette-Marit some years back when she went into her bizarre high-flying jetsetter phase. If anyone can watch Willileaks and his wife together and tell me that is a happy marriage, then I’ve got a bridge to sell you.

      • Jaded says:

        @Sid – You can’t fake a happy marriage, especially in the public eye, and I firmly believe the Cambridges are living apart most of the time. The tabloids may be sitting on a story of an alleged mistress, so William is feeding them all sorts of ish about the Sussexes to keep them off his tail. I’m reminded of Prince Albert’s MIA wife Charlene who seems to be having an extended ‘vacation’ in South Africa, the weird haircut, the utter lack of chemistry between them. You can’t cover up something that is so glaringly obvious.

  7. Angie says:

    I feel so bad for these kids seeing what we see now with how TOXIC and unhinged this family is.

  8. Sofia says:

    I’m guessing William and the kids only because it was a Father’s Day outing. As for no Louis, he could have gotten fussy and decided he didn’t want to go. He’s a 3 year old after all. Maybe I’m being naive and dumb about William but I just don’t want to jump to the conclusion Louis may have been purposely left out.

  9. Harper says:

    The nanny probably gets Sunday off and so Kate and CarolE were glad that William was occupied and took the heir and spare with him. Maybe Louis was napping? Playing happy family on off-hours might not be in Kate’s contract anymore.

    • notasugarhere says:

      They have multiple nannies and are never without them. Maria heads up a team. The France skiing fiasco a few years ago, with the catalogue PR shots released later? Other guests in the resort town France tweeted seeing three nannies minding the kids, and that was when they only had two kids. W&K have always hidden the number of staff they have for the kids, starting with denying the night nanny and day nanny they had for PGTips.

  10. swaz says:

    The Cambridges are obsessed with the Sussexes. They probably thought that Harry was going to post a picture of the kids for Father’s Day. William is now trying to dress like Harry and I see their kids are wearing Nikes now. SMH- I think they have a copy of every single picture of the Sussexes on their phone, they are itching to be them.

    • swirlmamad says:

      I thought the anti-woke maga crowd hated Nike after their support of Colin Kaepernick, lol.

    • tamsin says:

      Wouldn’t little Archie look absolutely the cutest in a tiny pair of doc martens and shorts in the next pic? And pink baby docs for Lili! Or little Archie in high-tops and basketball shorts!

    • Jaded says:

      This is the hamfisted way in which the Cambridges (read William) reacted to all the positive press about Meghan’s book. Trot the kiddies out looking like father of the year. Handling 3 kids would be a stretch for Willnot as he doesn’t seem to be with them very much so Louis was likely relegated to the nanny’s care.

  11. Serena says:

    Why is he akways squinting? Can’t he wear a damn pair of glasses, ffs?

    • notasugarhere says:

      He has them, he hides them most of the time. With his eyesight, he wouldn’t have been allowed to fly helicopters. He slid in sideways in some kind of transfer, which wouldn’t have been approved for anyone else.

  12. jennamaroney says:

    We get it KP, you have a printer.

  13. Lorelei says:

    Kaiser, your photo choices are always great, but today’s photo of Elegant Bill with this post just killed me dead 😭

  14. Maria says:

    Also – does anyone have an inkling why Louis wasn’t in these pics? I find it odd, for a Father’s Day post.

    • molly says:

      At three, I suspect Louis is still too young and unpredictable for a super public outing. To quote TikTok, “sometimes it’s good; sometimes it’s sh*t.”

      • Maria says:

        @Molly – That sounds likely. And Kate will use any excuse to stay home so I’m sure that’s related.

      • Maria says:

        (deleted)

      • notasugarhere says:

        He’s been trotted out before for PR events, when he was younger, so why not this one?

      • swirlmamad says:

        Well, if his mother was there too, which would’ve been the natural/normal thing to do, there’s no reason at all Louis couldn’t have been included. They would handle the kids the same way we parents ALL handle outings with all our kids. Now, if this was a little test run for William to portray himself as a competent dad, and if the wifey wasn’t allowed/welcome to join him then sure, it was probably easiest to keep Louis home with Kate so that the day would run as smoothly as possible. After all, if he doesn’t see his kids that often, three kids at once on his own could get hairy quickly. 🤷🏾‍♀️

        ETA: this is in response to @notasugarhere, #28

    • Jaded says:

      @Maria — I don’t think William is capable of handling all 3 he’s so rarely with them, and no doubt leaves the bulk of the parenting stuff to Kate or their nannies.

  15. Maria says:

    He’s literally turned into Mr. Burns. All he needs is the tight suit to create the hump.

  16. Sid says:

    George has always seemed rather shy, while Charlotte has always seemed very outgoing. So this appears to be the third generation in recent history where the “spare” seems more gregarious and suited to being “public-facing” than the heir. Setting aside the “nature” aspect of the nature versus nurture debate for a moment, you have to question exactly how the BRF raises children to keep getting this result.

    • molly says:

      I worry about George. He’s always seemed so uncomfortable in public. Hopefully he’s able to learn some coping mechanisms between now and “working royal” life.

      Also, he’s looking more and more like Charles Spencer. And not seven year old Charles, but at 57 years old now. (Obviously the cute kid version.)

    • equality says:

      Makes you wonder if they apply pressure to the child to appear perfect in public. He always looks anxious to me. Charlotte looked more relaxed at the Christmas walk and at the NHS movie event thing. Was that because she had Kate there so she was more comfortable?

      • EllenOlenska says:

        I will say frequently the oldest child is more “nervous” or reluctant in public than the second child (in my experience), and that this isn’t specific to G and Charlotte. I think it’s a combination of new parents being super nervous managing their first child and the second child having someone a lot closer to their size to emulate.

      • Ginger says:

        To me, Charlotte didn’t look relaxed at the Christmas walk or the NHS event. She was very quiet and looked uncomfortable at both.

  17. Bea says:

    I don’t know it’s just me but I really got the feeling that the kids and particularly Charlotte were a bit uncomfortable. It’s crazy that kids have to participate in these super public events…

  18. Anna says:

    I see nothing unusuall he was there with older kids. Fathers do spend time with children without wifes/mothers, you know…

    • swirlmamad says:

      On Father’s Day? I’m sorry, but that’s highly suspect. Any random Saturday or Sunday, sure. But not on a day that is supposed to be so family-oriented. For people who are SO focused on optics, this doesn’t look good, full stop.

  19. rawiya says:

    I’m no Naomi Campbell or Beyonce. I know that I’m not the prettiest girl out there, so I know I’m not “one to talk”

    But gotdang he is un. a. ttractive. Why are his cheeks like that? Why is his face like that?

    Do you see what being a horrible person does to your appearance?

  20. Eating Popcorn says:

    Can we please just talk about how @ClarenceHouse kills on social media especially compared to @dukeandduchessofcambridge 1) Clarence house does not use royal/palace anywhere 2) Postings look like they are for/by adults to adults. I swear KensingtonRoyal all look like they are written by a 40-year-old – 16-year-old who was homeschooled and not allowed to use social media growing up. If I didn’t know better I would say Kate was running it or at least supervising it. It’s not hip and it’s not adult…

    • AnnE says:

      Interesting observation re:@dukeandsuchessofcambridge. You may actually be onto something. I was so appauled by the “damaged goods” comment that I went to their instagram page and posted (on todays Williams B’day post) a comment, that he says he supports mental health but then there is leak that you called you bro/sil “damaged goods”, this kind of comment sets back mental health awareness and reinforces the stigma. After posting I thought I should have probably posted it on one of their related initiatives postings, so I did, this one profiled Kate’s (Big Change Small Start). Minutes later, I’m blocked. I have a second account (one personal & one generic for following celebs/bloggers etc), I can see both comments. I didn’t think much of it but out of curiosity I checked back a while later and suddenly I’m not blocked any longer on the account I posted the comments but only the comment remaining is the one on Williams b’day post. The comment on Kate’s “Big Change Small Start” post is no longer there. Maybe it’s all just some weird coincidence but still makes you go hmmmm. If it was just staff running the account, they’d remove both but they didn’t, only the one questioning Kate’s committment to mental health.

  21. swirlmamad says:

    I do NOT wish TOB a happy birthday. HE’S the sociopath, systematically and methodically attempting to ruin his brother and sister-in-law’s lives (he won’t succeed) and fomenting hate against his innocent toddler nephew and newborn niece. He’s a disgusting excuse for a human being. I hope he gets all he deserves this year, all right.

    And all that little show yesterday did for me was cement the seed that William and Kate are for all intents and purposes separated, and it was his weekend with the kids since it was Father’s Day. I mean, why would you NOT spend FD with your husband and all the kids together if you are SOOO happily married? Weren’t there posters on here just a little bit ago saying that soon we’ll start getting test outings showcasing W as the doting single dad? They really think we’re as stupid as they are. These two are toast, completely miserable together and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving pair.

    • L84Tea says:

      Oooh, I think you are onto something.

    • equality says:

      I agree. Test outings. Unfortunately for him I don’t think it generated as much attention as Kate outings with the children, shopping and the like.

  22. Rapunzel says:

    I’m super surprised Kate didn’t come along to play happy families. I can’t imagine it was a voluntary decision as she loves these types of photo ops.
    I wonder if Wills told her to stay home? It would go along with the recent story about Kate not coming to the Diana statue event.
    Has William gotten sick of doing events with Kate? Has something gotten worse in their marriage recently?

    • Ginger says:

      It definitely could be. He looked complete over her during their Scotland tour. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Kate doesn’t go to the unveiling.

      A reporter that works in the UK told her sister (that posts in a private Facebook group) that no one in the UK media knows it Harry is coming or not. His team is very tight. They are just guessing if he will. Which means William has no idea as well. If he knew he would have told the press.

    • Jegede says:

      I thinks Kate did her own ‘outing’ of the week with that superkeen Research opening, so this was William’s turn.

      This outing is also supposed to coincide with it being Will’s B-day & Fathers’ Day.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yeah I agree – she’s normally all over these PR shots, theme dressing herself and the kids in the matchy matchy way she loves.

      I have a feeling Kate won’t be at the Diana event even thou she will be clawing to get there to cosplay her little heart out. William will NOT want her taking all the attention away from it with the press focusing on what she’s wearing and pushing whatever lynchpin story Carol(e) has told them to embiggen her little Top CEO.

      IIRC, last year the SM photos for Father’s Day were William and the kids only, but for Mother’s Day the photos were of the whole family instead of just spotlighting Kate and the kids. I keep saying it but there has been a seemingly concerted effort to push this happy single dad image for William.

      • Calibration says:

        it could be as simple as Kate is with her dad. William doesn’t have a mum alive for mother’s day. But they are definitely not a happy couple either way.

    Kaiser, the picture you chose to represent this article is just great! He looks like he’s straining!! 😂😂

  24. Sunday says:

    If he wanted a Father’s Day weekend photo-op so badly, why wouldn’t Will have just attended Kate’s early years event(s), which was for families, with his young children? Doesn’t matter if they’re not all under 5, close enough. Wouldn’t that have been a perfect photo-op, husband supporting his wife? It also would’ve reinforced why Kate “cares” about the early years thanks to her photogenic young family.

    It seems like a no-brainer, and yet here we have husband and wife doing separate events on Father’s Day weekend despite the fact that one super-keen event was very family-friendly. Something’s just not right with those two.

    Whenever I see these kids, I feel so bad seeing how the the heir vs. spare are treated later in life. Sure, they’re cute and equally beloved now, but the tabloids also embraced both Harry and William when they were kids. What happens when they grow up? What if Charlotte becomes successful, charismatic and outspoken, will she be cast aside for the sake of the heir to shine as well?

    If William really wanted to celebrate Father’s Day, he should do some reflection and realize his kids are subconsciously watching/learning from the way he’s treating his own brother now. It would be heartbreaking for the same cycle to happen again in the future with George, Charlotte, and Louis.

  26. Nyro says:

    Single dad vibes. Louis probably stayed with the nanny as William probably still hasn’t gotten used to handling the little one by himself.

    For people with so many followers, their likes are lacking

    lol, what? He spent time with two of his kids in father’s Day. And had plenty of time the rest of the day to see his wife and other child. It’s not suspect at all.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Lol. Ok, I’ll bite. So then why else would a family, especially one so high-profile and so keen to look like domestic perfection, choose to spend such a family-oriented day such as Father’s Day apart? I know I personally would never even think of spending that or Mother’s Day separate from my husband and split the kids up. They want to push this happy family narrative so badly — this ain’t the look, as much as some folks want to make excuses for them.

    How to start a slow rollout of a conscious uncoupling: Never smile at your wife whilst in public on royal duties so it gets noticed. Spread the word that wifey isn’t invited to next major media event –The Diana Statue Unveiling. Approx. two months post-contract lapsing, float a rumor that a new residence in Bucklebury is on the horizon and that Anmer is too far away from Kate’s family. Next, appear in public with two of the children but no wife on Father’s Day.

    More to come ….

    • Jaded says:

      The Scotland tour seems to have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. All this latest embiggening of Kate’s skillz at being a lynchpin, a key part of reconciling Wm and Harry (as if…), a power figure in modernizing the monarchy. She’s definitely taking steps to solidify her HRH status and public approval ratings. She’s totally making moves to relocate closer to her family what with looking at schools near Bucklebury Manor. We all know she is overly dependent on mummy and can’t function on her own so living at Anmer without Wm around is not an option.

  30. Cessily says:

    Even photos and events with his kids are not enough of an incentive to think kindly of him…

  31. Sinéad says:

    My god the absolute state of the clothes on George. What 8 year old wants to wear long shorts and knee high socks? I’d say that’s a big part of why he looks uncomfortable there. How long are they going to continue to dress him like that???

    • Nina says:

      Poor George, that is what Kate and Carole think of as is dressing “royal”. They are setting that poor kid up to be bullied.

    Damn ! That’s a rough 39 for someone who doesn’t do s*** all day.

    Jelly Boy really has the face that he absolutely deserves.

  34. Mia says:

    The photos ya’ll chose 😂🤣 lmao.

  35. mlouise says:

    is it just me but for all the pics she must have with her dad, did Kate ‘had to’ put the one when he walked her down the aisle,… looks like sticking something that must had been and still be painful for Meghan, I find it mean…

    • Nic919 says:

      I thought the picture demonstrated a serious lack of personality because I am sure there are better photos with Mike that are more paternal and not when he is transferring her as chattel to the royal family.

  36. Christine says:

    The last two photos of William? Good on you, The Crown, for casting Tobias Menzies as Philip. I absolutely see it now. I was always here for TM as Philip, because I will watch anything that man ever does, for the rest of time, see Outlander, the tv show, the early years, and anything else he has ever done. But Wills in these photos? Boo. Do better, you are living up to the fictional impersonation of people you are related to in a fictional drama, that you claim is all false.
