Why is everyone being so squirrelly about Duchess Kate’s Covid exposure?

European Football Championship - England - Germany

Y’all are some conspiracy theorists. I mean, I am too, and I enjoy theorizing about what’s going on behind-the-scenes of the Windsor clan, but lord, some of you went too far! People are acting like Prince William is going to file for divorce from the Duchess of Cambridge any minute now and that Kate’s “Covid-exposure isolation” is some kind of cover story for how bad their marriage is. That’s not what is happening.

Might I interest you in a different conspiracy? The story about Kate’s surprise “Covid-exposure isolation” is actually the cover story for Kate, William and George being exposed at the Euro football match and no one in the British government wanting to talk about the big rise in Covid infections in recent weeks. The government especially doesn’t want “the second and third in line to the throne being exposed to Covid at a football match” to become a story. Kate is the proverbial canary in the coal mine – she’s isolating and if she tests positive, then George and William will “isolate” and the story will be that Kate possibly infected them. That’s why people are being squirrelly. Speaking of:

Kate Middleton has become the latest to be forced into quarantine thanks to crippling NHS test and trace rules – despite her having both vaccine doses, four negative Covid tests and no symptoms in the past week. The Duchess of Cambridge is holed up in Kensington Palace after coming close to someone who tested positive for coronavirus. Her absurd quarantine has prevented the Duchess from attending the NHS’ 73rd birthday celebrations with William at St Paul’s Cathedral and Buckingham Palace [on Monday].

MailOnline understands she was alerted about the contact with a Covid-infected person on Friday afternoon – after spending most of the day at Wimbledon with VIPs including Tim Henman and Joe Wicks. It means she must quarantine for ten days even if she tests negative, which she has, up to four times, in the past seven days including before and after her Wembley trip with William and George.

It is not known if the Duchess of Cambridge was alerted after being ‘pinged’ via the NHS app, a phone call from test and trace or if she or her team was contacted personally – but William’s ability to continue his duties today means the covid case is unlikely to be in their inner circle.

Kensington Palace said in a statement: ‘Last week The Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for Covid-19. Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant government guidelines and is self-isolating at home’.

Kensington Palace has not revealed where or when exactly the contact was only saying it was ‘last week’, when Kate’s only two public engagements were at the All England Club on Friday and with William and George at England’s historic win over Germany on Tuesday night.

A palace source said that the Duchess took lateral flow tests before both engagements and both were negative. In addition to this, the Duchess is tested twice weekly with lateral flow tests as part of the Royal Household testing regime, meaning she had four negative tests in that time.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, none of this makes any sense unless Kate is a Covid-exposure patsy and other people were exposed at the same time and they are NOT isolating. If Kate was alerted about her exposure “Friday afternoon” after she spent hours at Wimbledon, I would think that the exposure came at the football match on Wednesday. That’s the only thing that makes sense, timing-wise, with what we know of Kate’s public schedule.

The only other explanation I can come up with is that she was possibly exposed at her hairdresser’s salon, or at the doctor’s office where she gets Botox or something like that. That would make sense if KP is hellbent on insisting that Kate alone was exposed and no one in the line of succession. That would also explain the squirrelly behavior, especially if she was exposed by her Botoxologist!

And finally, the conspiracy about why the information was released at the last minute before Kate and William were due to show up to events together on Monday… Kensington Palace is run by clowns. They released the information so late because they don’t believe in disclosing any information to the public. And again, the Johnson government does not want to talk about the rise in Covid infections in the UK.

    They are being squirrelly because they are lying about something. When it comes to Kensington palace and the Cambridges, you can always assume the whole truth is not being told. This is just another incident in a long line of strange occurrences surrounding William and Kate, and the British media’s insistence on covering for the couple by refusing to dig deeper says it all.

    • Merricat says:

      I agree. I think Kate made up an excuse–being exposed–to get out of something, and she didn’t stop to think about how that would be received, so now there’s all this fancy footwork.

      Lol. I don’t think of myself as a conspiracy theorist. I don’t feel the rest of the word is conspiratorial. But the Cambridges, yeah, I don’t trust anything they say, because they’ve a history of lying and obfuscating in order to protect their image.

      • Maria says:

        Yeah I think it is a made-up excuse too. The main reason being that they waited till the last minute to tell the NHS she wouldn’t be there. If she was really isolating would they have done that? I don’t think so.

      • Mac says:

        I think she was exposed shopping or doing something non-essential and they waited until the last possible second because they don’t want the truth coming out.

      • Nic919 says:

        @mac I agree that she was exposed doing something non work related. She was probably getting her hair done on Thursday for the Wimbledon event on Friday and it would make sense that she was told about the exposure on Friday afternoon. A hair salon would have more than one customer and likely one of them tested positive and advised the hair salon, who then told Kate because she was there at the same time.

        That’s why they aren’t concerned about the kids or William because there is no way kate would be exposed at the euro game and not George or William.

        I still think announcing it last minute was unprofessional though if she was told on Friday and the NHS only found out Monday morning.

      • Enny says:

        Wow. So these are the lengths William will go to just to avoid doing an appearance with his wife.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      Exactly lol. We are conspiracy theorists because they never tell the truth. Many agencies gloss over the truth or don’t reveal it, but KP is so bad at PR that they are obvious about it. The Cambs are so squirrelly. I think about their battling PR and wonder what kind of squirrelly stuff happens at home!

    • Becks1 says:

      I agree, they are being squirrely because they are lying.

      Now, does it follow that they are lying about the state of the Cambridge marriage? Maybe not. But I don’t think she was exposed at the football match and thats why they’re lying. I think its more likely that she was exposed doing something that maybe she shouldn’t have or been somewhere she shouldn’t have been – and that would potentially expose the Cambridge marriage.

      Now, I’ll say that what makes this all look fishy for the marriage is just the totality of the circumstances – its been clear the past few months that something is going on, and while I’m not sure William and KP would lie about a covid exposure to get out of doing an event with her, I don’t think the overall picture looks good for Kate right now.

    • taris says:

      i agree with kaiser that the cambridge theories are a bit far-fetched sometimes.

      i disagree, tho, with just about everybody on here – and on twitter – about kate wanting to ‘get out’ of anything. we all know she’s lazy as hell, but she’s also been *dying* to be out there and to be seen in recent months. there’s no way she’d miss any opportunity to step out in a blazer and get glowing coverage for doing … literally nothing.

      as well, aside from last week’s statue unveiling, i doubt that she’s being ‘benched’ necessarily. there does seem to be some friction with the windsors, but i think y’all tend to give william either too much power (he’s benching kate!) or too little power (carole is manipulating him!).

      sometimes – just sometimes – the palace(s) is/are in disarray, and whatever’s happening over there isn’t at all strategic, it’s just clownfuckery.

      • Becks1 says:

        If she was “dying” that much to get out there and be seen…..we would have seen her. She’s done a handful of events but nothing really significant.

        She was 100% benched for the statute unveiling and if william wanted to bench her for other joint engagements he would do so. Is that what this is? None of us know .But in that marriage, William does hold all the power.

        ETA to add though, I don’t think missing the NHS events were about Kate trying to get out of work. Those are the kinds of one-off engagements she likes – simple, shake some hands, exchange small talk, and then leave. She would get to wear a new coatdress or sister-wife dress and new jewelry etc. So I don’t think she was the one who wanted to miss it .

      • GraceB says:

        I agree with Kaisers theory. The football match makes complete sense. Isn’t Ed Sheeran also isolating? He was also at that match, just a couple of rows behind William and Kate.

      • taris says:

        i actually think kate did get exposed to covid last week – and vaxxed or not, she still has to quarantine.
        as for her relationship with william, unlike some, i don’t believe that they’re locked in some intense power struggle and will divorce, like, next week. i think they get on rather alright (in public anyway), and it’s not always a case of who’s benching who and who’s manipulating who.

        lately we’ve been seeing the windsors close ranks, so whatever issues they may have with one another, they’ll do their best to keep it under wraps, at least while the queen is still alive.

        with this kate story, tho, i’m honestly seeing no conspiracies here.

      • Becks1 says:

        @GraceB – if it was the football match and Ed Sheeran was also exposed, that would mean william and george were exposed, along with David Beckham etc. So I’m pretty sure we would know if that was the case.

        I think it would be a big PR crisis for KP if William was supposed to isolate like Kate is doing and KP covered it up and said he wasnt exposed and sent him to visit with NHS workers. I mean they’re totally incompetent so maybe but can you imagine the headlines??

      • GraceB says:

        @Becks1 In theory, if it were the match then they should all be isolating but in reality, did they all even scan their QR code? So many people don’t bother or just pretend to scan them. They don’t want to be pinged and have to stay home.

        I agree it would be a PR nightmare, which would also explain why details are so vague.

      • Maria says:

        Becks1 – I see what you’re saying but Kate drops out of fluffy things like this a lot. Tusk Trust, EACH Gala, Irish Guards. She just does not like working. Now, whether that is what happened here is debatable. She may very well have wanted to go, unfortunately she does have a pattern.
        And yes, I think if it was the football match George and William would be isolating.

      • Becks1 says:

        @GraceB that’s true, maybe they’re just manipulating the system so they don’t have to follow the protocols. And you’re right that it could explain why its so vague – Kate got pinged, William didn’t, and if its from the game then people are going to ask why and it would be a really bad look if the FFK is just like “meh I do what I want.” So could be the game after all. Hmm.

        @Maria you are right, she does, and her excuses for them are just as flimsy, especially the Tusk Trust event. I think she likes garden parties at Buckingham Palace though bc she can imagine being FFQC lol. Who knows though.

      • Maria says:

        Yeah, now that I think of it, all the events I mentioned are still heavier in terms of public appearance and being “on”. At least at the garden party she can just flit in and out, and yes, play Future Queen, lol.

      • Nic919 says:

        Based on Kate’s past history of flaking out last minute on events when she doesn’t feel like it, it’s not far fetched to say she didn’t want to have to do more events with William. Especially since they seem very awkward together in their last few appearances.
        But this can go either way because KP, Kate and William have a history of being inconsistent with facts and doing work.

      • mariahlee says:

        I agree with this full comment. kp is just dodgy and incompetent. they’re never held accountable, so there’s zero incentive to be transparent or considerate.

      • Ginger says:

        Is Ed Sheeran in quarantine? He was at the WellChild awards the next day. I hope he didn’t expose any of the kids.

    • February-Pisces says:

      They already lied about when she had the vaccine. Claiming she only had her first jab a month ago, now she’s double vaccinated. Yeah these people are not to be trusted, so I don’t believe anything they say, so of course people are going to jump to conspiracy theories. Nothing they say ever makes any sense.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Right? Yes, we know they’re incompetent as hell, but they also have a habit of lying. This whole situation reeks of the latter.

    • Larry says:

      My conspiracy theory is that maybe Kate, too, has a side-piece and was exposed during a private rendez-vous (not necessarily 121 – maybe in a restaurant, a bar, a shop,…). If she was notified on Friday, then she would have been in contact with the Covid-positive person not that day but in the days leading up to the Wimbledon visit (infected person needs to get symptoms, then test, then positive result, and THEN NHS app sends out a ping – unlikely that all happened in the space of hours). Football match way more likely, but where is the fun in that theory?

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    Sounds like she has the same ‘health issues’ as Charlene of Monaco! Hopefully she doesn’t have it but KP is def trying to cover for/deflect from something that we don’t know about, yet.

  3. Lemons says:

    Kaiser is right. Everything must be seen through the lens that KP is run by clowns, people who don’t know what professionalism is. So whether they are trying to cover up a health crisis, a marriage crisis, a PR crisis, etc…don’t expect them to handle it well. They don’t know what a good job is since they’ve been functioning from “poor” to “mediocre” for all of their lives.

    • Ninks says:

      Plus add in a highly incompetent government led by a man who cares far more about looking good than doing the right thing.

      • Lady D says:

        My first thought was, Bojo thinks he’s good looking??? Then I realized you were talking about his reputation.

    • tolly says:

      Hanlon’s razor: Don’t attribute to malice anything that can be explained by stupidity.

    • Pao says:

      Personally i think that this issue is separate from whatever goes on within their marriage. I actually do think she could have been in contact with someone who tested positive at wimbeldon. To me that is what most makes sense. And she probably tested negative with those at hone tests.

      • Em says:

        If she was alerted on Friday afternoon she would have pulled out of all engagements on the spot, because the nhs workers were expecting a joint engagement and were blindsided with the announcement

      • Harper says:

        So Kate knew on Friday but waited until William was on his way to the event to release the info that she needed to isolate. William might have been away all weekend and she thought since their relationship is all about work she’d wait until the work week started to tell her boss she wasn’t coming in.

  4. Alexandria says:

    I’m actually surprised at the speculation. But I shall continue reading lol.

    • Myra says:

      I think they’re fair game after what they did. What’s that saying? Live by the sword, die by the sword?, What’s good for the goose is good for the gander? …Which is to say – speculate away, people.

      • Alexandria says:

        No I mean I don’t find it surprising she is isolating. It’s Covid after all. So for me I won’t think too much about that. For the rest of their fuckery yeah definitely go for it.

      • Myra says:

        I mean, her reasons for isolating may be as they’ve stated but I don’t really care that people are using it to speculate about their marriage. It’s what they deserve for leading that smear campaign against an innocent person.

  5. Jane says:

    The football has been catastrophic for the number of Covid cases in Scotland – when fans went down to London for the Scotland v England match, 1300 of them came back with the virus, and there’s been a spike of cases in young men. So it’s possible Kate was exposed at the match, perhaps she went to the toilet, or some other place that William and George didn’t go, and encountered someone there.

  6. Aurora says:

    Kate has been excluded from the Scotland trip, the statue unveiling and now this latest event. Is William sick of her? Is she avoiding him? So many questions the Rota won’t ask but I’m sure we’ll get a fake Sussex controversy to deflect.

    • candy says:

      Plus, he didn’t go to Wimbledon with her.

      • swirlmamad says:

        True….that would’ve been an easy and enjoyable event to go to together. IRDK about these two.

      • ClaireB says:

        William doesn’t seem to be a big tennis fan like Kate. I don’t remember him going before, so I don’t think that alone reflects on the state of their marriage. Everything else, yes.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        William tends to only appear at the men’s final, especially when Federer or Murray are one of the finalists.

  7. Phoenix_Rising says:

    I will continue to believe she doesn’t have it, period. It’s a convenient and pretty appalling way to cover up the truth, but that’s how they seem to roll in that 🐀 nest.

    • anance says:

      Easiest explanation, given the timing.

      “So Kate knew on Friday but waited until William was on his way to the event to release the info that she needed to isolate.”

      If true, the easiest explanation is that Kate discovered she wasn’t attending before William left. Now William is attending all the home soccer games without her. Wonder if George shows up.

      We don’t notice they spend weeks apart because the Cambridges do such few appearances. We don’t know their schedule. I think the soccer matches, Scotland trip, and NHS medal event interfere with their alone time. (William’s alone time.)

  8. ModeratelyWealthy says:

    Yes and no. KP is run by clowns and they do not believe in transparency, even though they are supposed to be public servants and not celebrities, but this is no isolated incident. It is completely possible they were all exposed on Wednesday and that Kate is taking the fall for William and George, especially since they had benched William for days before without much fanfarre when he was secretly ill with covid, so they could do it again ( staycation, family retreat etc)

    Instead, Kate gets benched third time in a row.

    Might not be ” divorce is imminent” as many here believe, but is definetely a sign. Methinks this is KP and CH way of telling the MIddletons they are not royals, they are not important, they are expendable.

    The whole Buckeberry house hunting could also be the Kate version of ” sending the Sussexes to Africa?

    They are clowns, but evil, scheming clowns. Remember Dan Wooton said Cambridges would not divorce as long as Betty lived because they respected TQ too much? It is completely possible they truly want Kate to abide to the ” little wife of a great man” role, stuck in a house with kids while Statesman Will work his share?

    This until the kids are grown, Betty is no longer here and Charles and William finally figure out if Kate is ” Princess of Wales” material.

    • SnowQueenM says:

      This is all just sad to think about, honestly. If Little Willie does decide to jettison Kate, I hope she joins the Sussex crew in California and hooks up with some hot California surfer. After years of Will’s literal garbage 🗑 , I think she deserves someone who treats her like a human being and not a living accessory. I always think about that story of her having to buy her own wedding anniversary jewelry. Like WTF, man…

      • lanne says:

        Um, no. Just no. Meghan and Harry are not responsible for their sister in law. She has her own family to lean on if she chooses not to stand on her own two feet. Her mess is NOT anyone else’s problem.

      • Maria says:

        She can hold her breath for them to invite her over if that happens. For the part she played in bullying Meghan and helping to rile up discontent over her that ended up endangering the Sussexes, and how Kate pretended Archie didn’t even exist, yeah, they’re not going to open up to her.

        She’s a cold and vindictive person.

      • notasugarhere says:

        She’d find no sanctuary in California, seeing as her lies are part of the reason Meghan was suicidal. Harry is done with both William and Kate.

      • SnowQueenM says:

        Good lord, I make one joke about Kate going after a hot California surfer and everyone gets in a twist. Guys, it was a joke. I feel bad for anyone whose marriage may collapse, though I do feel much, much worse for Meg and Harry, for the record.

      • notasugarhere says:

        This is the marriage Kate chose, with a man who doesn’t love her in exchange for title and position. He cheated on her for a decade before the wedding, he’s cheating for the decade after. Given her abusive, racist treatment of Meghan which nearly led to Meghan’s suicide? No sympathy for Kate and the life she’s chosen.

      • Maria says:

        I get it was a joke.
        I just don’t find what Kate did very funny or something to joke about. Honestly, it was and is sinister.
        As a side note, there are people who really genuinely think Harry should be taking Kate under his wing now if she gets divorced. That bothers me too since it’s a continuation of the same abuse in a lot of ways.

      • Sid says:

        Snow, I think a lot of people just find it hard to drum up much sympathy for Kate because of the whole “Meghan made Kate cry” lie that was pushed by Middleton Mouthpiece Tominey. It was cruel and riled up a ton of hate against Meghan, but Kate just sat back and stayed silent. Then her family’s mouthpiece tried to double down on the lie after Meghan exposed it during the Oprah interview. So the idea of Kate trying to find any sort of refuge in California is something that is just hard to laugh about. Although if Meghan and Harry did end up helping her and the kids out it wouldn’t be that surprising only because they come across as being that kindhearted and forgiving.

      • Royalwatcher says:

        Yeah I’m a big no on that one too. She’s just as complicit in the Meghan abuse as William is. So she doesn’t get to ride off into the Montecito sunset. She earned any bad karma that’s coming her way. I seriously doubt she’d leave her children behind anyway as we’re told over and over again that she’s a mom first and that’s why she can’t work, she just longs to be a SAHM, etc.

      • Nyro says:

        Imagine thinking Meghan should open her home as a safe haven to a racist white woman who abused her. You’ve got to be joking.

      • swirlmamad says:

        Like everyone else…I’m saying hell to the effing NO to that. Meghan does not owe Kate a DAMN thing. That is a complete and utter insult to say M should open her arms to K should her marriage fail. Kate tried her damnedest to ruin Meghan’s marriage (hell, her whole life)…when hers goes down in flames she can go kick rocks from here to eternity.

      • anance says:

        There is no balm in Montecito for Kate

    • ModeratelyWealthy says:

      @SnowQueenM: I am all for listening to women and gvíving women our support, as sisters we need to be able to come together more often, however we should police ourselves as to not take away women´s agency, even when it comes to poor life choices. Kate married at 29 years old after dating for ten years and is now a mother of three. Next year she turns 40. It is not like she is a victim here. William is a terrible husband if we go by what we know, but he is the husband she chose and so far, she not only does not want to go anywhere, but she actually use the Press to make sure we know she WANTS to be there, as the whole Diana´s statue showed us.

      Of course, if there is ever a divorce, I will be TeamKate because oh boy, the woman will be hunted down and demonized, but until then, she is a willing participant.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        If TOB divorces Keen Guevara, you will never find me on her side. She knew exactly what she was marring into and she jumped in with both feet willingly. She has always had one eye on the prize and TOB finally gave in to marring her. I don’t feel one bit of sympathy towards her after what she has intentionally done, not only to Meghan, but what she has continually done to her. Copying Meghan at every chance.

        And I agree with the theory that Keen Guevara was exposed doing something she should NOT have been doing, hairdresser, botoxing, etc…And if there was a chance for her to get out of doing any actual work, she took it and ran. She only likes events where she can imagine herself as FFQC, nothing more!

      • swirlmamad says:

        I will always be Team NOBODY when it comes to the Cambridges. They both suck hardcore and deserve each other. You’ll find me on the sidelines filing my nails when the sh*t hits the fan with those two.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        Same @swirlmamad. Frankly they’re both shitty people and they’ve demonstrated it in SO many ways over the years, even before Meghan.

  9. Lauren says:

    The UK is in a really bad position right now with covid numbers on the rise and the government dead-set on opening everything by the 19th. Add in that the NHS might be privatized (no one wants to talk about that), Brexit, Scotland, and Northern Ireland. The last thing they need is to have to admit that the heirs to the racist throne might have come into contact with someone who tested positive during a football match. Because if they aren’t safe in a “tested” event who is?

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      The NHS is being privatised, it’s all been done by stealth – the Tories are hiding behind the pandemic and Brexit but its still going on. People need to know what is going on/

      • Jais says:

        Being privatized in stealth? Wtf

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Its being done a bit at a time – a lot of out patient services are run by private companies. Spending on that has been increasing every year. Community health services are outsourced.

        https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2021/may/03/government-pandemic-privatise-nhs-by-stealth

      • Jais says:

        Thank u for the link!

      • Lady D says:

        They privatized laundry services at hospitals in my area 3-4 years ago. A lot of people lost their jobs, (200+ in my area) a lot had their wages cut. I thought the union would be able to stop it, but no. Privatization is bad news for employees, period.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Digital Unicorn, thanks for the link, I will read it later. But if that is the case, Brits better get worried about their out of pocket expenses due to the fact that many Americans can’t afford health insurance and many file bankruptcy due to the amount of money the insurance companies make. And don’t get me started on how much money they make, it’s like they are printing it in the basement! The insurance agency is the only industry that determines what they are willing to pay for a service!! Each year they decrease the amount of money they pay for each service as the expenses increase for physicians. I know as my husband is a physician and what they are doing to physicians should be considered illegal!! Including with the pharmaceutical companies as well. There was an exposure last week regarding insulin for diabetics that they didn’t want to patent it so that it was available for everyone, this was in the ‘50’s I think, but the pharmaceuticals still took advantage of it and that’s why it costs so much money. But Walmart is selling it for $5 now!!

    • MissMarirose says:

      It really doesn’t help that the Daily Mail is running stories like this where they denigrate the necessary work that the NHS is doing to try to keep people safe. There are cases, after all, where vaccinated people acted as carriers of the virus.
      The way in which this article is written is so damaging to people’s health.

  10. Woke says:

    How KP ended up with such an incompetent team ? Was it always like that at the beginning ? I mean they’re not that much better but you can see the difference between KPand BP and CH.

    How William ended up being such a pawn to the establishment ? Does he even realize how much he’s being used by both the government and the media ? He thinks he has all the power and maybe to some degree but that’s false.

    • taris says:

      william is known in royal circles for keeping his staff on a tight leash, so to speak. and, for many years, royal commentators spoke of how he’s often surrounded by yes men and nobody tells him no.
      so … i think it’s pretty safe to say if any leaks come from KP it’s probably with the approval (tacit or otherwise) of william. he’s not particularly PR savvy or even self-aware, nor are his team, hence the clownshows.

    • KW says:

      and what happned to their new crisis managers? Did they just give up on the shit show?

    • Alexandria says:

      Their non leader boss is not intelligent nor does he have EQ. So you can imagine what type of people he hires. The stupid who think they can and think they’re better than everyone else. Or the meek who he can trample on.

    The bigger story here is how she managed to get both vaccine doses when she received the 1st one only a little over a month ago and 2nd dose wait time just got moved down to 8 weeks. Is any royal rota rat going to ask how the Cambridges skipped the line to receive the 2nd dose?

    • Lauren says:

      I have been thinking that the pictures that were actually released are of them getting their second dose, which would be super duper shady AF, but of course that roaches aren’t going to be asking about it.

      • Gigi says:

        That is the most logical explanation but it means that KP still lied about the timeline and the Cambridges skipped the line to get vaccinated in either case. I certainly do not believe Kate is in quarantine. Cambridge stans theorize that she’s pregnant (yeah right!) but the timing of the Bucklebury home story and the lack of engagements since the Keen Centre reveal tells me that separation has been finalized.

      • Lila says:

        That’s what I also thought, and that would mean they outright lied because they said she was getting her first dose in late May.

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, I think the pictures we saw were of their second doses, and they lied and said it was their first dose. Many of us here said there was no way that Will and Kate were waiting their turn in the vaccine queue – and it seems we were right.

    • schlussel says:

      if Kate/Wills had the Pfizer vaccine, maybe they had the second dose after 21 days as Pfizer itself recommends. this would still be ‘special treatment’ relative to the rest of the UK though, so I’m surprised KP would want to publicise that fact.

      • Sid says:

        schlussel, when KP released the photo of Kate getting a shot, I don’t think they anticipated a future scenario where she would be exposed to the virus and then they would have to reveal this early that she was fully vaccinated.

    • Lizzie says:

      Was the date the pic of Waity getting the jab verified? I assumed they released it on a day they needed to divert attention.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I think KP posted on their socials the pic of her getting the vaccine saying that ‘she has just received her first jab today”.

      • Becks1 says:

        I don’t think the date was verified but didn’t she get it at the natural history museum? I didn’t think the UK started using it for vaccines until shortly before Kate’s picture was released, which made me think it was legit.

        I could be completely wrong and be thinking about NYC instead though lol.

  12. Tanguerita says:

    I agree. British government has been demonstrating an appalling lack of judgement that will without any doubt lead to another mutation of virus and a new wave. They want to open, open, open, do away with the masks, any restrictions, and apparently, public health. To tell people that she got infected during the game would mean to tell rabid soccer fans to mask up and stop spitting into each others faces. Plus, WIlliam would have to stay away from the next game. They wouldn’t do that, so tennis has to take the blame.

    • Midnight@theOasis says:

      “Kate Middleton has become the latest to be forced into quarantine thanks to crippling NHS test and trace rules – despite her having both vaccine doses, four negative Covid tests and no symptoms in the past week.”

      Based on the snide language the Daily Fail uses in this article, seems like the right wing press is doing its part to support the Tory government. Ridiculing protocols to convince people that there’s nothing to see here and everything’s over blown.

      • Tanguerita says:

        absolutely. I don’t say it lightly, but I wish every single person in this government and the whole staff of the sun and the daily fail the worst form of long covid, the one my friend in London has been living through in the past 12 months and that turned that 40-year-old man into a husk who literally can’t walk up the stairs without getting out of breath.

  13. Em says:

    their marriage has been on the rocks since Charlotte’s birth and Harry was usually a buffer especially during public engagements, they temporarily reconciled to conceive Louis after you know what and then to drive Harry and Meghan out and now they’ve gone back to hating each other, they literally can’t stand to be in each other’s presence even for cameras, you could see it during the match, they never interacted and had to bring their kid who totally ignored his mother and was close to his father throughout. I think William has realized that keen is getting to big for her britches and had to be pulled down a peg either that or she’s taking time for a cosmetic procedure or to visit a therapist.

    • Sunday says:

      I actually went to Getty or wherever to look at all the editorial photos of the football match and George never looked at his mother once. Not. Once. At his own mother.

      Based on the photos I’ve seen, if you told me that will and kate live separately and that George and Charlotte live with will and Louis lives with kate, I’d believe you.

      • equality says:

        George could be absorbing Will’s attitude toward women or just identifies more with the male figure as a lot of children do. A lot of the time children pay more attention to and try to please the parent that they feel less secure with.

      • My3cents says:

        Sunday- or maybe if they are living apart and George dosen’t see his father that often he is focused on him.

      • Nyro says:

        Equality, I agree. He’s at that age where he’s naturally going to start wanting to be close to his dad and not be “mama’s baby” like little Louis. And apparently he now knows he’s going to be king, so he’s looking to his dad for that as well. And yeah, he probably is picking up on his dad’s vibe toward his mom and is emulating that a little bit. If we’re picking up on the vibe through pictures and videos alone, he’s definitely feeling it.

      • HeyJude says:

        As William himself proves, children will often end up exactly like their parents without the extraordinary intervention of specifically parenting them to be different.

        The way Meghan was saved from taking after Tom by the very intelligent and careful parenting of Doria for instance. And somewhat like how Harry was, by nature of the palace machine, turfed to Diana’s more thoughtful care rather than the firm’s because he wasn’t the heir.

        Children just pick up their parent’s characteristics by osmosis otherwise.

      • February-Pisces says:

        I have noticed this for a while that George and Kate never really interact publicly. What I find weird is that George not interacting with Kate, she is his mother after all and kids don’t fake feelings. I think Willie has taken the lead with George given his fate, and just lets kate focus on the spares. Willie believes the heir should be more important given the treatment of his own brother, I wouldn’t be surprised if he treated his kids differently because of this.

        Also I think Willie doesn’t want people to look at George at ‘Kate’s son’ or as an middleton’ he wants people to see the ‘future king’. I think he sees George as his property, not Kate’s, and he may have blocked her from publicly interacting with him, like he did with harry when George was a baby.

        Plus if Willie divorces keen, then Kate and Ma will rebrand as ‘mother of the future king’ and ‘grandmother of the future king’. George is the middletons way back into the fold in the future. Willie maybe trying to create a void so he isn’t as close to kate or the middletons.

        All I know is that if this was archies interactions with Meghan then the trolls would have something to say about it.

      • Red Snapper says:

        February P I just wanted you to know that I look forward to the thoughtful insights you bring here.

      • February-Pisces says:

        Aww thank you so much @ red snapper. X

  14. Lili says:

    I had an even more Machiavellian theory, about the delay of going public and that is payback to Harry, becuase He was around William on Thursday and left on Friday. No one knows if he is quarantineing in LA ( lets hope he is) .

    • Ainsley7 says:

      I would like to think Harry is smart enough not to infect his kids. He’d be an idiot not to quarantine at least 5 days and a negative test.

    • MsIam says:

      The CDC says you are safe to be around vaccinated and unvaccinated people outdoors without a mask as long as you’re vaccinated so Harry is supposedly safe. In fact, supposedly if you’re vaccinated you don’t need to wear a mask indoors either unless you want to. I wear my mask regardless when I’m indoors.

      • Lizzie says:

        Where I live local health officials are recommending masks indoors for vaccinated people because the delta variant is high in my state, MO.

  15. HeatherC says:

    I still think she got some Botox and fillers that aren’t settling quite fast enough, or maybe aren’t settling quite right. That’s my theory, and so far I’m sticking to it.

    Or maybe she got a full on face lift.

    • notasugarhere says:

      She tends to do the big tweaks during holidays times (south of France a couple summers ago), not when there are scheduled events bookmarking it.

  16. Aidevee says:

    Y’all are wrong.
    She has skipped town to party it up in South Africa with Princess Charlene. You heard it here first!

    But, yes, seriously – it feels like everyone here in the UK currently has covid. Its everywhere; school bubbles are bursting, people are being sent home from work, the works. Yet we are being told that, on 19th July, we are just to rip off our masks and crack on. I don’t get it and it makes me really anxious and confused.

  17. Zaya says:

    If your theory is true and it comes out later then it would be extremely reckless for William to be out there doing events.

    I’m in the she’s using it as an excuse not to work camp.

    • Kebbie says:

      Also, why would it be a big deal that the line of succession was exposed to covid when it’s already been confirmed William was infected last year and had a pretty rough go of it? Surely an exposure is nothing compared to that.

      • HeyJude says:

        Because William then went to a public appearance at the NHS knowing full well he was potentially exposed and possibly a carrier. That would be a HUGE deal. It would mean the future king is perfectly okay with exposing helpless innocent members of the public, ney members of the nation’s medical system, to COVID.

      • Kebbie says:

        That’s exactly my point. They wouldn’t have lied about his exposure, they’d have just admitted he was exposed and he’d go into isolation with Kate. She had time to cancel, he would have had time too and if anyone would understand it would be the NHS. Why lie about exposure and create a much larger potential scandal? It’s so much more likely he simply wasn’t exposed and Kate was.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      The Cambridges have form for disregarding COVID protocols – so it really doesn’t surprise me if William was exposed and then just carried on as usual.

  18. Amy Bee says:

    I tend to agree with Kaiser. KP is a clown show. When it comes to taxpayer funded public figures and covid there’s no such thing as privacy. But in their efforts to keep her exposure private KP just made things worse.

  19. Shawna says:

    This article is super detailed. I’m surprised how much content is in it! Usually there’s a bunch of filler with one new fact or claim. Is the press finally getting tired of parroting the party line only?

  20. girl_ninja says:

    It looks as though they’re trying to cover something up. I hope it all comes to the light.

  21. Sunday says:

    I’ve seen enough irate tweets about this that I’ve had it hammered into my skull that the UK’s guidelines don’t require the rest of the household to isolate if the person who was exposed hasn’t tested positive (yet). So, Kate isolating but Will and George not doing so does not indicate that they aren’t part of the same household… it just indicates that the UK guidelines are completely idiotic. If Kate (or anyone else) tests positive after a week, that means that she’s had an extra week to infect those within her household while they’ve been gallivanting around the country sprinkling their germs everywhere.

    This story is so obviously shady because KP lies about everything. The timing of their shots never made any sense; it wasn’t a proper photo op of will and kate together, it didn’t fit in with the 2-week waiting period before travel, it didn’t make sense with their mask wearing before or after. I think Kaiser’s theory might be correct, but that doesn’t explain why at the football match it appeared as though there was at least one seat separating Kate from George and Will. I’m sure KP will either have fresh Meghan smears or new ill-conceived lies to make this story as messy as possible.

  22. Pippi says:

    Whatever the actual reasons behind this, my big shock is the writing used in that article. Is Britain TRYING to look like a tiny US Republican colony?! The idea that popular and widespread mainstream media writes about tracking, tracing, and quarantining as if they are fascist control tactics is terrifying. No wonder things are not under control there, with Boris AND the media acting like this.

    • Jais says:

      There was a lot of tweeting about how poor Kate would have to isolate for 10 days due to the government’s draconian COVID restrictions and how everything needs to just open right now. Not sure why but that response surprised me. I’m still just annoyed they last minute canceled her appearance to NHS if she knew since Friday, like how f*cking rude.

  23. JT says:

    I still think they’re lying and it has something to do with the fact that those two can’t be around one another. When have those two, and the entire royal family, given a damn about covid protocol? They spent the entire pandemic wandering around maskless, breathing all over people. They’ve been hopping from England to Scotland breaking lockdown rules since this whole thing started. They declared themselves essential workers just so they can skirt the rules. William had a bad case and they hid for months, and yet, Kate is merely exposed and they decide to make it public? Why? If the government didn’t want people to tune into the fact that cases are rising and two heirs are exposed, wouldn’t it have been smarter to keep Kate’s exposure a secret? It’s not like they’ve never lied before and nobody seems worried about her health, unless that’s a lie too and she isn’t doing well.

  24. Sofia says:

    I don’t think she got it at the football match either. I think she got it during her private time. Possibly from her staff, a salon visit, maybe out shopping or a restaurant? I do think they’re shuffling their feet about this whole situation though. They may not have anything to hide but they’re not doing a good job at showing they’ve got nothing to hide.

    • Becks1 says:

      I don’t think it was the football match either. Given how much pushback there was over hiding William’s COVID diagnosis – I think if the RRs found out that it was the football match and they lied about George and William being exposed the Cambridges would be destroyed in the press.

      Maybe this isnt a big deal at all – she was exposed while getting her hair done or whatever – but if that’s the case, then KP is really bungling this.

    • Sunday says:

      Is Kate really going out to the salon and/or doctors office, though? I’d have thought she has an entire custom salon at KP and her stylists just come to her, no? (She could still have been exposed that way, depending on how stringent the guest-test policy is at kp.)

      If it was the football match, wouldn’t everyone at the stadium have gotten tracked-and-traced? Meaning, everyone would have gotten the alert, and the media would undoubtedly have heard about it if tens of thousands of people were exposed. Like if the entire stadium at the Yankees-Mets subway series were all exposed and the US was doing anything even vaguely resembling a track-and-trace program (lol SOB) then I’m sure it would have been all over the news that thousands of people were just alerted to exposure.

      KP has made this more difficult for themselves because they’ve lied (poorly) about so many little things to create their cobbled-together version of reality that now even when they tell the truth it seems like a lie because it doesn’t fit in with their previously made-up bs.

      • Sofia says:

        She probably does have people who come to her but she may prefer going out to salons too. It depends on what she likes and what her mood is. And it might not be a salon but a restaurant or something.

        And I’ve already said I don’t think it happened at the football match.

      • Sunday says:

        @Sofia 100%, I agree with you, sorry if I was unclear. I was just pointing out that another reason the football match wouldn’t fit for the potential exposure is because thousands of people would’ve also been pinged which the media would have gotten wind of (as that’d be a newsworthy story in and of itself) and therefore been able to make the connection between the match and kate’s “exposure.” Same goes for Wimbledon too, so unless the track-and-trace program is wildly inefficient, it would have to be a private contact sandwiched somewhere in between all the public events last week, which is where things get interesting.

      • Sofia says:

        @Sunday ah my bad! And while yes the “test and trace” system is shambolic it’s also not “won’t alert the thousands of people who attended a football game” bad.

    • KW says:

      Well, she looked rather tan to me at the football match, so I’m going with the theory that she and Mother May I or Pippa went on a quick holiday somewhere and tanned and botoxed and skipped covid rules and protocol and now they are twisting in to pretzels trying to come up with a plausible lie. It’s just a circus with these idiots.

  25. Catherine says:

    The conspiracy theories ran rampant because the announcement was so vague and the timeline coincided with two very high profile public events. I don’t think all three were exposed at the euros because they would have had to pull George out of school and if William had direct contact with a COVID positive individual they surely wouldn’t be reckless enough to have him on engagements on Monday. I also don’t think it was at Wimbledon because given all the media at that event more info would have leaked by now. I think it was in a private capacity that they don’t want to discuss for whatever reason. The bigger question to me is the fact that she reportedly has already had two shots when she wasn’t eligible. They made a big show of saying they wouldn’t jump the line but apparently they did.

  26. Over it says:

    Oh how the noses at Kp keep growing. Her first shot of the vaccine couldn’t have been her first shot because not enough time had passed for her second.
    Next lie if she did get the results on Friday then she would have notified the nhs and canceled her engagement immediately she didn’t.
    LIES LIES LIES LIES.

  27. Harper says:

    Two theories: One, Kate made it up to get back at William, hoping he’d have to isolate and miss the upcoming huge soccer/football game this week. It would be her revenge from being iced out of the statue unveiling. Or two, she got it from Pippa’s household. If she was exposed at the game last week I think they’d have to pull Will as well. But if she got it from a friend of a friend at Pippa’s or from Pippa herself or the Moderately Wealthy James, then that would be Kate specific.

    • WithTheAmerican says:

      This is where my head went. She’s punishing him for benching her allegedly due to covid limits at the statue unveiling.

      It just seems like the kind of marriage they have. But it’s also why I don’t think they will ever divorce. Neither seems to mind living a joyless life for power and both serve their purpose.

      Sometimes lately I’m afraid she’s pregnant. Not in the Camb Stan way, but because she can’t stand Meghan getting attention she’s not getting and having babies is the only thing she can do to secure her place.

    • Lizzie says:

      I think this is continuation of benching her.

  28. aquarius64 says:

    All this does is create more chatter. And William hid his COVID exposure for six months. I trust nothing out of KP.

  29. equality says:

    Doesn’t explain why Will looked more relaxed at the unveiling and at the NHS event he did without Kate. He certainly wasn’t wasting any time worrying about her. I guess, she only needs his concern when H&M say something about her.

  30. J ferber says:

    Am I right that William was never enthusiastic about Louis’s birth and a third child was what Kate wanted? I think William was okay with the heir and spare. He’s been seen with the two elder kids recently and not Louis. Does he resent Kate for the third kid? He’s such a strange man(child).

    • notasugarhere says:

      He should blame himself. He’s the one who got caught drunk partying with young blonds during a lads skiing weekend away from Kate. Few months later, she’s pregnant with Baby #3 in exchange.

      • Jaded says:

        Exactly. Louis was a “reward” baby. But where there’s a “Will” there’s a way (pun intended) and the Rose Hanbury rumours started flying. That was when TQ gave Kate the Royal Victorian Order. Given the obvious rocky state of their marriage, I wonder if TQ giving Kate the title of sponsor of the HMS Glasgow is some sort of mollifying gesture to thank her for putting up with his shite?

    • Lizzie says:

      This is so weird to me. It seems like you either like kids or you don’t. After all they don’t have to do any work they don’t want to. I only wonder if he said no to a third and she got pregnant on purpose anyway. I can see him being pissed about that.

  31. Layla says:

    Their squirrelly attitude is dangerous. Why do you have to be so vague? Just say where she was exposed to it from so at least other people can know if they’re at risk too.
    Both KP and the Government (which I’m not surprised about tbh, especially after their behaviour in the past year) are blatantly risking and playing with people’s lives and frankly, it’s disgusting.

  32. The Duchess says:

    I still believe Kate has made this all up to get back at William for benching her at the statue unveiling and using their son to cold shoulder her at the football match last week. If it is true, however, it could be she was exposed at a location that wouldn’t sit well with the public/media. A location that would expose the Cambridge’s marriage for the sham it is.

  33. ceb says:

    daily mail calling it an “absurd quarantine” lmao. sometimes i forget how truly fucked that paper is.

  34. CommentingBunny says:

    I think the delay was because Kate assumed she would get out of having to isolate and is scrambling because the rules are actually being applied to her.

  35. WintryMix says:

    Meh, I think we all agree they’re lying and it’s just a question of what they’re covering up. I still think something interpersonal is more likely than anything related to Covid. I mean it could be literally anything so who knows for sure, but given the pattern of absences from expected appearances, I think the Covid thing is entirely an excuse (that they didn’t fully think through because they’re really, really bad at all this).

  36. Margaret says:

    My tin foil hat theory, is punishment for her forcing a,I have to see harry while he is in quarantine visit. Go on laugh, but kate is a desperate woman.

  37. Lizzie says:

    The whole thing is squirrelly. They are very careful not to identify who/where Keen came in contact with someone infected. Why is that a state secret? Either this is all a ruse or she was somewhere she doesn’t want to admit.
    My grandson does not go out in crowds without a mask. No it’s not a government mandate but a mother with common sense who doesn’t want her child exposed and he is too young for a vaccine. As both dullards of Cambridge are vaccinated my concern is George at the football game and unmasked. The delta variant is no joke.

  38. Sarah B. says:

    I believe the palace courtiers and BRF benched Kate from coming to NHS event and other events. I think Kate started to believe her own hype and overstepped her bounds. Strike one- that fashion/photo shoot at Phillip’s funeral. Strike two- that horrible showing with Dr. Jill Biden. Strike three- that article saying Carole Middleton is William’s substitute mommy. Honorable mention- Uncle Gary’s interviews. The BRF and the palace courtiers are reminding Kate and her family that they are outsiders just like Meghan and can dealt with in the same manner as Meghan. They are reminding the Middletons to stay “in their place”. They essentially told Kate and her family to have several seats 💺. They told them if we need you, we will call you.

  39. Nyro says:

    A lot of those “conspiracy theories” make perfect sense tho. It’s not like anybody’s accusing her of wearing a moon belly or craziness like that. And celebitchies have been right about a lot of stuff we theorized was going on behind the scenes. As Meghan said, nothing is as it seems with these people.

    Speaking of Meghan, have you guys seen this epic receipt? Back in 2016, Palmolive wrote a tweet thread about how the royal rota were bored with the Keens and were looking for a new storyline and were ready to turn on them, especially since there was no lady love in Harry’s life to rip apart. Just two days later, it was revealed that Harry and Meghan were dating…by Camel Toe. Kate and Carole have been throwing Meghan to the wolves since day 1.

    https://mobile.twitter.com/Jasamgurlie/status/1411888039681462273

    • Sunday says:

      You’re right that anything is believable at this point, and that should really worry KP because it shows that they’ve lied about so many things that literally anything could be happening behind the scenes.

      (I did see that on twitter, but one of the replies has a screenshot from some unattributed article that blames Eugenie and Noncey Drew aka prince andrew, which really confused me? how does that fit in?)

      • Nyro says:

        It doesn’t fit in. If it’s Tominey, it’s from the Middletons. I can totally see Carole on her Twitter burner account all day, following all of the rota and royal adjacent reporters for sure. Palmolive tweets that they’re ready to start dragging the Keens unless Harry’s spotted with a new girl and then two days later, a Middleton mouthpiece drops a dime on Meghan and Harry? A huge stretch to think that’s the York girls.

      • Sid says:

        Yeah, the Eugenie and Noncey Drew (love that!) story always seemed suspect. Eugenie and her now husband were going on double dates with Harry and Meghan and apparently even visited in Toronto when Harry was there to see Meghan. Eugenie was the only family member showing any support on SM and she has made a point not to show much of the interior of Frogmore, even though I’m sure Fergie would love to be able to sell some photos of herself and baby August perched in there. I have a hard time believing she would have leaked to Tominey about H&M dating. Noncey Drew maybe, in order to buy some protection for himself, but he didn’t really need it at that point as Mommy and the Palace were keeping the BM at bay.

  40. Bonnie says:

    I’ve been wondering if she was exposed by the Middleton’s….

  41. lorelei says:

    What if…and just bare with me but what if both W and K have “special” friends, such as Rose for example, and she was exposed like that??? If they really live separate lives it wouldn’t be such a stretch to think she has someone trimming her bush too, especially since she insured the succession with 3 kids.
    That’s the conspiracy theory I’m going with, cause I really hope the girl’s getting some from somewhere.

    • equality says:

      Even funnier if Rose was Kate’s “friend” and not Will’s.

    • Lorelei says:

      There must be two of us! I post here frequently (usually mostly only on the royal articles, but this ^^ is a different Lorelei! )

      Although I agree with what you’re saying anyway lol, other Lorelei…I hope Kate has someone else too, but I doubt it. And tbh, now that I think about it more, that would only make things worse for those poor kids when everything becomes public, eventually, and it turns out that both of their parents were cheaters. William knows this firsthand.

  42. KNy says:

    This kind of reminds me of (though not as bad) when trump came down with COVID after the first debate and there were all these non-story stories about when he last got tested.

  43. Rapunzel says:

    My thoughts: three options

    1. this is a lie, for whatever reason.
    2. Kate was exposed by someone she shouldn’t have been with (the juiciest possibility), or
    3. it’s an employee and they don’t want to say their staff got sick, especially as that would expose they’re in separate houses.

  44. HeyJude says:

    I’m sorry Kaiser, but NO WAY being exposed at the Euros is the issue. Because they sent William to the appearance Kate missed at the NHS. If he was exposed too sending him to an appearance with the national health service and potentially causing a catastrophic exposure incident within the nation’s healthcare entity would be beyond risky.

    A situation like that, causing an exposure risk or outbreak at the NHS, if it come to fruition and then would be inevitable found out by the public would honestly be so appalling to the public it would put William’s spot in the line of succession in jeopardy. That would be a unforgivable public scandal that risked the health of countless people.

    It just doesn’t make sense that this is what they’re hiding. William would not have been allowed to make that appearance if so. It would be too risky to the monarchy itself.

  45. Powermoonchrystal says:

    Mmm. I have another conspiracy theory (dangerous territory, I know). But I just saw in the news that the UK government is changing the guideline to not require double vaccinated people to isolate after COVID-19 exposure (UK celebitchies, correct me if I am wrong). Could they have used Kate’s story, and the obvious bias language and spin from the DM to influence public opinion to accept this decision? We know the palace, and especially KP, has been used by the government for their own ends like in the Scotland trip, so it seems at least likely

  46. Rapunzel says:

    I wonder if Kate got exposed when she went shopping or to the hairdresser and doesn’t want to admit it because it was on Thursday, while the statue unveiling happened? She maybe left because she didn’t want to be there when she was benched from the event, but doesn’t admit she wasn’t there, watching with the kids, waiting to play peacemaker by serving Harry some tea afterwards?

    Kate’s latest baby Botox injections did not go well.

  49. candy says:

    I don’t think they can say where she was exposed because it’s probably a privacy issue, perhaps even a legal one. But, it’s yet another reason she won’t be seen out with William. I have a theory about the marital fall out: there were two events, perhaps related. But they seemed close for a while after Louis, almost like they had reconciled. Then more recently something big.

  50. Robin Samuels says:

    Honestly, where is Kate going? She is stuck in that mundane relationship with the “forever incandescent with rage egotist” for life! Exposure may have occurred at the football game. Your photo shows them all sitting in the same row. I saw a different photo where George and William were sitting together and Kate was in a different row in front of them. I will not even begin to speculate on how and why because everything involving that motley crew lately is suspect.
    Digressing. I look at Prince George and my heartaches. An eight-year-old at a legendary football game in a suit and tie, looking like a Wall Street executive. At such a young age he’s subject to royal grooming; looking at the cameras because he hasn’t learned yet to pretend they’re not there. What a life. It’s the life Harry talked about; the one he said he didn’t want his children to experience. Kudos Harry! Children should enjoy childhood. He can play King George later.

      Dressing up isn’t going to hurt him. Having an unstable father will.

      • Maria says:

        Dressing up as the “Windsor heir” so they can pigeonhole him into that role absolutely will hurt him. It’s a symptom of the problem that children are not children but tools of the establishment and the Firm, which is how his father became unstable in the first place.

  51. Basi says:

    If she was indeed exposed…a few have mentioned maybe she got it from a private event. Aren’t there rumors that Kate has her own side piece?? Maybe she got it from him

    • Beach Dreams says:

      Eh, I don’t think so. I remember those rumors on Twitter a few months back and the person who started/spread them claimed it was Ben Ainslie…which I seriously doubt. I kinda feel like Kate doesn’t have the guts to cheat, partially because I can see William being a hypocritical ass about it.

  52. Ania says:

    Maybe our Katie has taken a lovaaahhh! Ehh she seems to boring for that and I guess she would look a lot happier…

  53. mosi says:

    like with everything they do, it’s just astounding- they lie so much, yet they are so bad at it!

  54. L4frimaire says:

    I’m not interested in their marriage but will say in general, the British royal family are Covidiots. They have not once modeled good responsible behavior in this pandemic or followed the science unless they absolutely had to, barely wore masks and just don’t care about it beyond their own inconvenience, which reflects the disorganization and denial of the elected government. They’ve been secretive, have shown only the most basic and performative appreciation for those directly affected by this virus, and only because it makes them look good. Even this quarantine Kate is under, instead of taking her lumps, it’s just petulance and eye rolling based on the tone of that article. Ugh, just shut up and see you in 10 days.

  55. Curious says:

    Catherine is a lot of things that is not kind.. but one thing she is not , she is not a cheater. whatever drive she got. she never cheated on william. she hang on to him. she never been sexually with another man ,even after they broke up. she is like glued to William.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Curious, well, that’s an interesting perspective. It’s quite possible that once she recognized that what she signed on for ended up being married to a serial cheater, she may have realized just how to play the game. I suspect your definitive statements are more about you than Keen. There is no way for any of us to know what she will or will not do. I find it interesting that you believe that cheating is just one bridge too far for her. I think after all of this time, it would be surprising is she didn’t have a side piece of her own when you consider that her hubby can’t be bothered to so much as share an umbrella with her.

    • Haylie says:

      Please. Before the tabloid embiggening, she was rumored to be the St. Andrews pass around. I don’t believe for a minute that she’s only ever been with Will and no other man.

      • Savannah says:

        Yea, during the vintage era of W&K she was kind of always with him and his guy friends. During their break up she was photographed leaving clubs with one or two of those guys. She kept it to their inner circle, they don’t kiss and tell.

  56. Sunnyvale says:

    I feel like her not being “pinged” as DM was repeatedly repeating means something(probably a fake excuse for banning her from doing things). I honestly sense like willy is easing her out or something. I noticed he’s doing more engagements alone lately and now kitty is set to miss her favourite(or the only consistent thing she does) i;e Wimbledon final. Lets see if willy covers for her😏

    • Nivz says:

      Omg. The conspiracy penny just dropped for me. If this exposure story is a fake. Is this… her punishment? Missing Wimbledon?

  57. Wadsworth the Butler says:

    The big flaw in this theory is that there’s no reason to reveal Kate’s exposure while concealing William’s. They could have hushed hers up as easily as they could for him or George.

    • Calibration says:

      I think it was just that she was slated to do an event and had to cancel and a reason had to be given.

      • Wadsworth the Butler says:

        She was expected to attend the same event William did. If they were all exposed at the Euro match, it doesn’t make sense that they would lie for him and George but not her.

  58. Jax says:

    I think she was benched too for whatever reason. Kate never misses Wimbledon (except the year she was pregnant with George) and has even “appeared” during her maternity leaves for C & L. She’s also the patron and presents the trophies to the winners. This is her week of the year and she’s in the Royal Box with Pippa and then William for the men’s final. Finals are on July 11th, which is day 10 of her quarantine. Wonder if she’ll be let out or kept away entirely.
