The Cambridges are already planning to snub the Sussexes on their trip to the US?

The Cambridges attend the Earthshot Prize Awards

One of the funniest stories of the month – perhaps of the year – was the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge telegraphing that they are a couple of desperados yearning to be popular in America. William and Kate smeared and abused their American sister-in-law, but they believe that’s all water under the bridge and Americans are dying for their patented keenness. The storyline writes itself: Will and Kate are “fed up” with merely being relegated to limited, local popularity and they’re desperate for a “high profile” in American media markets. They believe they can “challenge” Harry and Meghan’s popularity stateside. Of course the idiotic royal commentators are already having a field day, predicting that the Cambridges will snub Harry & Meghan on their keen visit, and suggesting that Will and Kate will be wary of The Thunder-Stealing Sussexes. I swear to God.

Kate Middleton and Prince William could be heading to the US next year, as they announced the next Earthshot Prize Awards will be held there. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the king and queen of green as they awarded the winners of a £50million planet saving prize earlier this month. Speaking at a reception afterwards, William said: “We raised the bar — now over to the US.”

Royal author Phil Dampier told Fabulous that it would be a “logical step” for William and Kate to attend the ceremony across the pond in 2022 – where Meghan and Harry have set up their new life. However, Phil added that any chance of a reconciliation between the two couples is unlikely. He explained: “I don’t think William and Kate would want to meet up with Harry and Meghan, who could try and steal their thunder on the Earthshot project. They are very much rivals now, not brothers in arms, and I’m afraid I can’t see a reconciliation soon.

“If Harry dropped his book project and admitted some of his and Meghan’s comments were over the top there might be some progress, but I can’t see it happening. William and Kate have always been very popular in the US but have not been there for some time so they will want to boost their profile and next year, during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year, would be a golden opportunity.”

Phil also said the chances of William and Kate staying in the Sussexes’ £11million Santa Barbara mansion are slim. He added: “If they stayed with Harry it would turn into a circus and also be a security nightmare, taking attention away from the green cause, so I expect William and Kate to concentrate on their efforts and not meet up with them.”

“If Harry dropped his book project and admitted some of his and Meghan’s comments were over the top there might be some progress…” LOL, yeah that’s not going to happen. Again, everyone wants different things. Harry wants to live his life in peace, on his own terms, managing his own business and media. William wants Harry’s capitulation and servitude. Anyway, it’s clear that this is going to be one of the big go-to stories for the next year. The Cambridges really are desperate for American media, American financing, American tourism. And they probably believe that “disrespecting the Sussexes” will play well in American markets too. It will not. But I can’t wait to see how they try. (also I’m still giggling about how there’s already speculation that the Sussexes will steal the Keen Thunder.)

    Keenshot has no thunder to steal. Nobody cares about it. The best thing that could happen for that little award show would be Harry deigning to show up for it, which he won’t. And I thought the prize was for $5 million. When did it become $50 million?

    • Becks1 says:

      It’s 5 million a year for 10 years, given out to 50 recipients, I “think.” So each year there are five winners and they each get a million.

      • Gabby says:

        As an aside, if I came up with some earth-saving invention, methinks it would take a lot more than a million dollars to get the prototype up and running to where it would have the intended effect. Or will Wills leave that for the plebians to sort out?

    • Steph says:

      Does anyone know about the BBC ratings for the series about Earthshot? I’ve literally seen nothing about it.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Steph: Earthshot loss 2.2 million viewers that usually watch the BBC in that time slot and it was outside the top 30 shows for the week. If it was a ratings hit, the royal rota would be bragging about it.

      • JT says:

        So again. If British folks don’t care about it, while the hell would we care about it? I do not understand the logic of the Keens taking America by storm, when they can’t even sustain their own public’s attention. Even their media, who are paid to prop them up, cannot maintain any interest in this little prize.

      • Steph says:

        @amybee whoa. I didn’t realize it was that bad. Yikes.

      • TabithaD says:

        It was a prime time slot on Sunday evening too, when ratings are usually solid. And it looked like such a sorry, half-arsed affair. Not nearly enough focus on the actual winners. They’d made it into some kind of glittery rock concert (why??) with “celebs” – the likes of Ed Sheeran, Coldplay and Emma Thompson, all of whom are terrible bum-lickers when it comes to the Royals and will turn up to anything.
        The whole Earthshot thing is a total damp squib.

    • Nina says:

      Their Twitter bots will make sure to present their Keenshot as the most magnificent thing in the world while also wishing death to Meghan

    • Couch potato says:

      “Harry and Meghan could try to steal their thunder”. LOL, they don’t need to TRY, they do it in a heartbeat just by breathing, but they are to classy to try to steal anyones thunder. You’re so right @JT, W&K don’t have any thunder to steal.

      It’s says a lot about the RR and the Firms view of what’s important. If the environment WAS important to them, they’d want both couples there to draw attention to the CAUSE, not to W&K spesifically. They should be there to highlight the importance of saving the environment, not themselves. Placing the Earthshot prize in the US, to get the focus on the cause, create publicity on the US citizens and organizations who’s working on the subject and use soft diplomacy to get peoples attention would be a good thing, IF they’d actually done that. IF they’d actually had the thunder they so desperately want, they could have done some good by placing the prize in the US. Sadly that’s not the case, and not why the “award show” will be in the US next year. It’s because of a one sided pissing contest.

      Calling Harry and Willnot rivals speaks volums about Willnot and the RR’s minds of thinking. They are not rivals. Harry’s doing what he wants and Willnot can’t stand it. If the palace had chosen to call it “two brothers who’s chosen different paths in life”, they would look so much better publisity vice. I’m constantly wondering whether this it’s due to the courtiers and RF’s stupidity, complete lack of reality or a combination of both.

      • Jasper says:

        @Couch potato If the rota and the royals had actually placed more emphasis where it belongs (on the activists, institutions, and their causes who were supposed to be the stars) instead of on William and Kate I believe there may have been more interest. I looked up a few of the winners and they are truly doing some great work, and they are waaaaaay more interesting than the royals.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      @JT this is also gaslighting to a horrifying degree. The RR is playing the contretemps as a ‘you said some things, I said some things, it all got out of hand – but just apologise, and all will be forgiven’. It’s a hateful way to diminish the very real anguish that Meghan experienced and Harry by extension via the press, and the toxic bullying and noxious incandescence of PWT. Sorry, RRs, but in future, please understand this salutary lesson: if a person of colour tells you about their lived experience and suffering, listen to them – and believe them.

      • Emma says:

        Exactly and it’s classic abuser behavior. Meghan and Harry and their children deserve a happy life. And they’re having it despite the best efforts of his family.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ JT, I think that is would be prudent for FFK to read this article before he starts thinking about coming to the US. Otherwise, FFK and Earthshit 2.0 will be a greater disappointment than he could EVER imagine!! Enjoy as I came across this lovely tidbit about FFK!!

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        Jack Royston and Newsweek (which is pretty much a tabloid now) are not paying a complement to the Sussexes and are barely criticisizing William in this article. The title was to generate clicks – which it did. Royston spent more time bringing up things the Duke & Duchess of Sussex have been criticized for without saying how it’s done unfairly. He brings up Meghan’s British Vogue guest editorship and Enniful, neglecting to bring up the full context of the quotes which can be found in a NYT story July 29, 2019. Royston, who might be suffering amnesia, is also demonstrating he is a terrible fact checker or is deliberately attributing to Shatner what Prince William told the BBC. I’m guessing the latter. Shatner spoke to Entertainment Tonight and Royston is misassigning the quotes.

        Royston also links to an earlier story of his, Oct, 2, 2021, about positive/negative media attention between the Sussexes & Cambridges. LOL that the Sussexes received more positive media in the UK than in America and the opposite for the Cambridges. The study was done by Zignal Labs whose CEO is a Brit now living in California. After reading Zignal Labs About page and in light of Botsentinel’s recent report, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn if Zignal was employed to help form certain negative narratives on social media. Newsweek has been doing it for awhile now with the Sussexes.

  2. Luna says:

    So, from the general drama aside, it’s ok for the Lamebridges to fly into the states while putting a no travel/ flying in ban on the other attendees for mere pr/ ego reasons?
    Talking about hypocrates….

    • BABSORIG says:

      William the hypocrite must be really mad about his little narrow mount. Like Trump’s little baby hands, William has a small baby mount.
      Also, the Cambridges have absolutely no, ZERO thunder, leave alone anything the Sussexes can steal.

  3. Becks1 says:

    The Sussexes can steal the Cambridges thunder just by breathing, so….good luck with that Cambridges.

    If Earthshot is held here, i’m assuming it will be in NYC or DC, and the Sussexes are doing their thing in LA, so again…..not much of a snub there Cambridges.

    Interesting that they are all assuming William will attend the awards again, considering they asked people NOT to fly in this year. It would set a good example if he just zoomed in or whatever. Maybe he’s hoping for better ratings in the US…..

    • Steph says:

      My god, I hope they don’t come to NYC. We don’t really care about celebrities like that. Plus, NYC is majority minority, no one wants their racists asses here. It would just cuz traffic that we don’t need for no good reason.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Steph, ditto to everything you said (the traffic issue alone, jfc). But I would not be surprised if they had the audacity to have it in Los Angeles, hoping for the highest number of possible celebrities to attend, and STILL not visiting the Sussexes.

        It’s the worst thing they could possibly do and would make them look horrendous, but it seems like the kind of idea that William would think is genius, like “Take THAT, Harry!” while every other sane person would find it cruel and immature.

      • Steph says:

        @lorelei, it would not only be horrendous it would be so counter productive. The winners of this are actually doing hard, important work and need their profile raised so they can get money. Working with his brother instead of against him would actually do this. But he’s too small and petty for that.

      • Becks1 says:

        Nonsense Steph and Lorelei. You two are clearly forgetting the triumphant tour that was the Cambridges NYC tour in 2014 and how Kate lifted our spirits in her hot pink coat the 911 memorial. It’s clear that NYC is CRYING OUT for glamour and celebrity and fame, and who else can deliver but the Cambridges?!?!?!!?


      • Jais says:

        @lorelei- I think you’re right and can totally see them trying to do the awards in LA…or maybe silicon valley to compete w Harry’s better up vibes.

      • GraceB says:

        @Steph Statistically NYC and London have virtually the same percentage of white people, and yet London is stuck with them.

    • FC says:

      Yeah the Brits don’t realize how big the US is — visiting the east coast is not “snubbing” the west coast, it’s avoiding a 5 hour plane ride in the opposite direction.

      If they were really playing to their “US base” they would hit up Florida and MAGA land. Would LOVE those pics.

      • Lorelei says:

        @FC, they really don’t. Isn’t the entire UK smaller than the state of Texas? Some Brits like to go on about how dumb Americans are and how we “don’t understand” anything, but some of them need to take a look at a map ffs.

      • Allegra says:

        @Lorelei, the UK is smaller than Michigan! Texas is about 3 times larger than the UK.

      • Lady D says:

        Last time I checked, you could fit 7.25 UK’s in BC. I’ve always thought Texas was so much bigger than we are. BC could conceivably hold 462 million people instead of our current 5-6 million, and there’s still nine more provinces and three territories to go. For the record, most of our population is on each coast, and a fair few on our southern US/Canada border. We’re hospitable, our country not so much.

      • GraceB says:

        @FC Brits do know this.I doubt there are many Brits who are unaware of the size of the US. This is once again just the media twisting things to fit a narrative, which is in the case that the Cambridges are snubbing the Sussex’s.

      • Lorelei says:

        @GraceB, hopefully you know this, but when I say something like, “Brits should look at a map,” I am absolutely not referring to the entire country, just the pro-Brexit, Meghan-abusing, DM-reading crowd. (That goes for everyone on here, who are CLEARLY smarter than a chunk of the population). I think people accidentally make generalizations, but obviously there are many people like you, who are most certainly *not* in that group!

    • LaraW" says:

      From a purely logistical standpoint, this is not a good idea. I’m just making wild estimates of timeframes for various events, so take this with a grain of salt.

      Earthshot took place October 17 – assume that it will take place around that time again (because… reasons? It’s supposed to be annual, right?)

      October 17 is not possible: US midterm elections take place November 8, a month before the ceremony. No one is going to that thing or paying attention to it. The last month is crunch time for everyone. I mean, unless William and Kate want to be seen stumping for MAGA candidates. (Oops, I forgot, they’re totally apolitical.)

      So maybe they’ll move it up, after Jubilee (June 2-5, 2022). Puts us in July. Which, no can do because of Andrew. Judge Kaplan’s scheduling order:

      July 14 – End of discovery (including depositions)
      July 28 – Joint pretrial order due. Virginia demands a jury trial, so voire dire questions and jury instructions also due.

      Additionally, Judge Kaplan ordered that “No motion for summary judgement shall be served after the deadline fixed for submission of pretrial order,” which means summary judgment briefing (and the mandatory statement of material facts) has to happen before July 28. So are they going to do it after briefing? But they have no idea when the judge will rule on the MSJ – it could be in August, could be in September, who knows. So puts us back in October, which is midterm elections season.

      Maybe they risk it and come over in September, Sussex style. Kate wears her hot pink outfit again to the 9/11 memorial. Maybe Judge Kaplan decides summary judgment. Cue really really bad questions from the press. Or they’ll get bad questions from the press anyway even if the judge rules in August. Not something the Cambridges want to confront.

      Or, they don’t do it in the latter half of the year but before June. May is out because I’m assuming there’s a bunch of preparation stuff for Jubilee. If they do April, then they have six months to plan for the damn thing. Possibly the sweet spot is late June? But isn’t this when they usually disappear for two months of vacation?

      There’s no really good time for the Cambridges to do some kind of US tour. I feel like the presence of Andrew necessitates they do it before any kind of summary judgment briefing because anytime afterwards, they’ll be fielding Andrew questions from the US media. There’s also Harry’s book to consider – when is that dropping?

      I know this is going to last a week maximum, maybe just a weekend. But if William and Kate want to draw the crowds and media coverage they so desperately covet, their options are very limited.

      • Eurydice says:

        Yes, I was thinking about the logistics back when Will announced it. There’s everything you’ve brought up, plus their regular patronage schedule, however meager, and we can’t forget the school breaks and W&K’s all important vacation schedule. This is all talk.

      • Becks1 says:

        oooh Lara good point with the Andrew coverage/trial/questions. I feel like at the very least, even if they refuse to allow that to effect their timing (which would be a mistake), it would definitely effect their location, bc they aren’t going to want to be in NYC around that time.

        They can’t do it around the Jubilee because that’s “thunder stealing,” even in late June, when you factor in all the promo work for it. plus, Kate would never miss Wimbledon. So maybe they’re thinking of post-election, December-ish? People are busy during that time of year, celebs are hustling for awards, no one has time for William’s vanity project.

        Maybe they’re thinking August or September, but like you said, there is the whole SJ ruling hanging over their heads then – if it comes out ANY time around their trip, the trip would be overshadowed by that, and they obviously can’t predict when it will come out.

        Hmmm. Uncle Andy is making this very difficult for William! how sad for him.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Laraw, all such good points! Also, there are so many factors unrelated to this self-absorbed family that have nothing to do with attention or press coverage (we know that’s all THEY are concerned with, but they need a reality check).

        Even though things have loosened up a lot, Covid is still a thing, and could get worse again. States are having messy legal battles over vaccine mandates because people are selfish idiots, and it’s not recommended to hold anything that will draw a large crowd. (Covid issues could also force the trial dates to be pushed back.)

        Plus, the Queen’s health. Since we know that things are always about 10x worse than whatever the palace tells the public, I think it’s probably a pretty precarious situation.

        Honestly, the combined, very long and drawn-out drama of both Sussexit and Andrew’s sh!tshow (I’m not saying the two are at all comparable like some people do; only listing them as stressors on the Queen), and the fact that William and Harry are now estranged, have got to have taken a major toll on her. (They’ve taken a psychological toll on US just reading about it all!!)

        Then there’s the issue of countries fleeing the Commonwealth; Barbados was the first to go and everyone knows more will follow. (Wasn’t the Queen even booed in Scotland recently?)

        Add in the fact that she just lost her husband of 70 years, and imo it’s not wise for any of the royals to be planning expensive, logistically complicated events like this. Although it’s obvious that part of the reason they’re planning things in the first place is to prove that the Queen is “totally fine, everyone!!” so who knows.

        As it is, I personally don’t think she’ll make it to the Jubilee, but that family has some stubborn, hearty genes, so it’s possible that she could make a comeback after some rest. Time will tell.

        ETA: I would not put it past these people to have taken a metric sh!t-ton of photos of the Queen over the past few years, when she was looking and feeling better, and release them as if they’re “new” in the coming months if rumors about her health declining start to get worse. They will Weekend at Bernie’s her as long as they possibly can.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ LaraW”, oohhhh! You have spelled this disastrous tour out perfectly well!!! There is NO option on the table for the Lambridges to come to the USA for their measly Earthshot ceremony, which was a disaster, an exceptional disappointment for those who actually were awarded the prizes. PWT, unprepared, only used the ceremony for his own puffing up, no representation of the actual WINNERS, as well as PWT using the opportunity a ceremony to see only him, nothing of the winners!!!

        I am so excited for how you have painted the entire next year for the Lambridges!! Their colossal campaign of “We are the true Royals, as FFK & FFQC, you will love us as we are truly the greatest FFK/QC, to have ever been chosen by God.” Which will result into a campaign of disaster, disgust and utter disingenuous display of how truly awful they are!! They will cement their reputation of being utterly useless for all of the American public!! They will forever be known in the US as the truly despicable couple who DID assault/smear their brother Harry and his dynamic wife Meghan as OUR true royals!!

    • Lucy says:

      Th way they said Harry will try to steal thunder made me laugh, gave me an image of Harry stealing the Cambridge thunder in a trash sack, sneaking out with it over his shoulder 😂

      Also I really feel like the UK press doesn’t understand how big the US is. Hell, I’m pretty sure they don’t understand how big Texas is in relation to the UK.

      This just reads like a not really disguised list of demands from TOB in case the Sussexes are secretly dying to get a money shot pic of the four of them sipping tea. In other words, delusional tripe from beginning to end.

  4. Abby says:

    Sigh. This is funny. I’ll be watching the coverage. with popcorn.

    • Eurydice says:

      It’s all so yummy and hilarious – I’m laying in snacks.

      So the Keens, the FFK and FFQ, are fed up with their own realm and their own subjects and want to conquer the US? Good luck spinning that to the British public that already thinks they’re too expensive and useless. And they think they can come to the US and snub the Sussexes?

      I guess that’s one way to bring the US and UK closer – make both countries think you’re clueless, rude and spiteful.

      • JT says:

        All this says to me is that even the FFKQC of the UK don’t give a damn about Britain. So once again, H&M are the trendsetters, getting the hell out of dodge before sh*t hits the fan. Isn’t the UK trying to prove that it is still important on the world stage? Doesn’t it look bad to have their future king trying to make it in America like an up and coming actor or something? The Keens don’t even put in this much effort into their jobs in the UK.

      • Lorelei says:

        @JT, you’ve killed me dead with “an up and coming actor” 😭😭

      • lanne says:

        I said this before, but late night TV is going to be LIT!

        I don’t think they fully understand how much they screwed up their chances in the US. I can imagine them holding an event in Texas or Florida and wondering why so many people are wearing red hats. And why everyone is white.

    • Same says:

      I’ve been through a large buttered tub just reading the outrage at … checks notes … a hypothetical opinion written by a tabloid hack

  5. I cannot believe they actually have the balls to come over here. We do not want you racists. Please go straight to Buckingham Palace Prison and collect zero dollars.

    • Jan90067 says:

      Oh, they’ll do GREAT here, what are y’all talking about????

      Of course, they’ll have to limit their stay in RED states, like Florida, Tx, Alabama, Missouri, Georgia… where there are the most MAGAts. They will be LOVED there SMDH.

      The places *they* want to “conquer”, to “feel the love”, will shun them like they already shun The Moldy Orange, his Malevolent Melanoma of a wife, his crooked, coke crazed son (with the crazy gf), Daughter-Wife and Victorian Dead-Eyed Doll Boy, and Gummy Boy from Deliverance and his Rabid Dog wife.

      • morrigan01 says:

        Georgia isn’t totally Red anymore though (remember, it went Blue in the 2020 Election). If they went there, they’d have to stay out of Atlanta at the very least.

    • L84Tea says:

      I can’t even wrap my brain around their thinking at all. They clearly enjoy doing the barest bare minimum, they don’t actually care about anybody other than themselves, and they truly enjoy the life of leisure filled with posh vacations, private trainers, shopping, etc. Why would they want to go and *try* to be global mega-stars?? Don’t they know that it would require WORK? I’m not even referring to William’s warped mentality that he should be worshipped just for being himself–he HAS to know that hard work would be required to be on that level, and he HAS to know that he isn’t prepared to do it. I mean, I get it. I get why they want this–because they can’t stand that H&M have it. But deep deep down they both must know. They must. They have to know that doing that level of work is not what they’re interested in. Again, I just can’t make myself understand it.

      • Lorelei says:

        @L84TEA, I don’t even think the Cambridges put as much rational thought into it as you did typing that one comment.

        IMO: They decide they want to go to the US, inform their aides, then sit back and wait while other people do all of the work of planning it (with the exception of Kate shopping for a tour wardrobe).

        I really think Bill believes they can touch down in the US and get an enormous welcome, with a red carpet waiting for them as they depart the plane, photographers, a receiving line of dignitaries, etc.

        What is so frustrating to me is that they have the capability and the willingness to throw as much ££ at this farce as necessary in order to make it look like they’re wildly popular in the US, but none of it will be organic. The Cambridges will do everything in their power to make it look like Americans are excited they’re here and turning out in droves to glimpse them. Photos will be shot (by their lapdog Chris Jackson, of course) to make it look like there are crowds, when in reality, there are like 15 people standing behind the barriers. I wouldn’t even be the least bit shocked if their team paid people to show up and cheer, Trump-style. Then their fans will swoon and be all over social media smugly declaring that their faves have “taken over” the US. I’m getting a headache even thinking about it.

      • LORELEI- “I don’t even think the Cambridges put as much rational thought into it as you did typing that one comment”
        LOL 😂😭😭

      • Jan90067 says:

        Wait for the ad on “Craig’s List” trying to hire a crowd!😂.😂

      • Lorelei says:

        @PinkFlamingo, lmao! I wasn’t even exaggerating or being snarky, I truly don’t think they are capable of thinking about so many different factors outside themselves! Way too much work. I would bet my firstborn that the only thing Kate thinks about in advance of ANY trip is her clothing.

        Someone here suggested that the first time anyone at the palace heard about this plan to have the second ceremony in the US was when William got excited and shouted it into the microphone last week, just assuming his minions could make it happen because FUTURE KING. If that is true I will never stop laughing imagining the behind-the-scenes reaction when he just randomly announced that to the world 😂

    • Jasper says:

      I’m here wondering if they don’t realise that the US press will be under no obligation to play nice with them. They better prepare for QUESTIONS.

      • Deering24 says:

        I’m really surprised they haven’t figured this out.

      • Lorelei says:

        Kate could barely sputter out an answer when Andrea Mitchell asked her if she had MET HER NIECE. That’s not some “Gotcha!” question; it was a totally natural thing to ask so soon after Lilibet’s birth (and one that she should have expected).

        If Kate got so rattled when asked such a basic and obvious question, can you imagine what she would do if someone — even someone friendly and not at all intimidating, like Savannah Guthrie— said something like, “Meghan called you a ‘good person’ during the Oprah interview. Let’s hear your side of the story.” She would DIE

      • Becks1 says:

        So we know that a few years ago the palace DID have that kind of control over the US press; they could threaten to withhold the Cambridges if the press didn’t sit on certain stories (cough Andrew). So considering how bad they are at reading the tea leaves or whatever, my guess is they don’t realize that at this point the press is not that obsessed with access to the Cambridges, and that the press sells stories and clicks etc just fine with the Sussexes.

        So all that to say that I don’t think the press feels any kind of duty right now to play nice with the Cambridges, and ESPECIALLY if they want to play in the big leagues – if they want to be with the US heavy hitters, like the POTUS and FLOTUS, they’re going to be covered by the heavy hitter reporters like Andrea Mitchell.

  6. Eurydice says:

    Hahaha hahaha! The Cambridges don’t have any thunder for H&M to steal – they’re just a damp squib.

    • Gillysirl says:

      Seriously. The only people who are excited to see them are the ones who believe “royalty” is born special instead of born or marrying rich (and with a title). I can’t believe that so many people believe that having a title makes them special/experts/good people. I’ve seen nothing that demonstrates a deep care or sense of thoughtfulness/concern on their part.

    • Jay says:

      Exactly! Getting the kind of attention they want from the US market requires a sustained, well-organized, and well-executed media strategy. This is not “show up in a pretty tiara to an adoring crowd” or “take a photo playing with some adorable children”.

      If the Cambridges actually promote Earthshot, they’ll need to talk to American reporters and do American tv/ social media. And they’ll have to get ready to compete in the realm of celebrities – American reporters will ask them questions they are not prepared to answer, especially about the Sussexes. Answering “Oprah who?” ( I know that was actually Sophie) is not gonna cut it here.

      Have we ever seen them interviewed in a tv studio for more than a few minutes? I don’t think either of them has the depth to do a longform interview (like 60 minutes) or the temperment to appear on a talk show. Like, are Will and Kate doing carpool karaoke?

      • Jasper says:

        @Jay I made a similar comment before seeing that you had stated it already – that the US press will not shy away from asking them uncomfortable questions. The protection they enjoyed in the UK will not extend beyond those borders.

  7. Kfg says:

    Earthshot got the RF called out for being horrible polluters and hypocrites. Earthshit was a failure. The Twitter attacks are being linked the KP so the keens are really not popular. Add in the fact that they’re always on vacation, they really should read the room. No one likes them here.

    • Lorelei says:

      @KFC, it’s mindnumbingly asinine in every way. They forbade anyone to fly even *within the UK* to attend the first ceremony because they care so much about carbon emissions, but they’re going to fly to America for the second?

      It has absolutely nothing to do with Earthshot, imo— the entire thing is strictly about William and his ego. Bill wants a successful visit to the US to “prove” to Harry and the rest of the world (but deep down, mostly himself, imo) that he’s just as popular and beloved here as the Sussexes are, if not moreso. Except he’s NOT, so…IDK.

      • Kfg says:

        I doubt there will be an earthshit 2.0. Like i think Betty is about to croak so without her, the RF cache is used up. It will be Chucky as the new king who will do a royal visit to the US, not lame and keen. They’re despised in Canada and in Scotland so this is just an attempt to be relevant. I know I will flip the f out if my tax dollars go to pay for their tour but not towards parental leave.

      • Lorelei says:

        “Earthshit 2.0” 😂/😭

  8. Cessily says:

    Now they sound exactly like an abusive ex.. I moved thousands of miles away from mine to an area he hated.. now he owns a home so close to me I no longer feel safe leaving mine. That is what they are doing, dragging the hateful accounts and rats that follow them here. They need to just leave the USA and Sussex’s out of it and play there petty games in Britain.

    • lanne says:

      I’m sorry you’re going through that. It’s amazing what evil people will do out of spite.

      • Cessily says:

        Thank you 💐,
        Yes it is and the BRF and rats are firmly in the wheel of abuse with many of there actions and tactics.

    • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

      @Cessily Can you get a restraining order? This is Toxic Abuser 101 – the courts should hand him his arse on a plate. So sorry you’re going through this. I’ve been there, and it’s just horrendous.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Cessily, Jesus Christ, I am so sorry! Stay safe, and hang in there— hopefully something will change and it will get better soon. 💗

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Cessily, I am so sorry for you. This is terrible!! Your ex sounds like those abusers that will stop at nothing to leave you alone. The fact that he moved to where you live to inflict fear into your daily life is unforgivable. I hope that you are able to escape to a place that he can’t find you. He is an abuser of the worst kind, the one to be fearful of.

      I can relate. I had to move in the middle of the night, change my employment twice in a matter of 9 months too. Petrified of leaving my house for the grocery store, my children waiting for the bus or going to work. Luckily he didn’t know where my house was that I had bought perviously under my maiden name, which I purposely never shared even though it’s extremely rare. There are only about 7 people in the US with my maiden name, 5 of which are my relatives.

    What makes them think that they’d even receive an invitation to stay with HM? Stay home and keep your mess on your own turf.

    • MY3CENTS says:

      Exactly, you can’t turn down an invitation you didn’t receive.

    • L84Tea says:

      This story sounds to be like they’re almost begging the Sussex’s for an invite.

      • JT says:

        @L84tea It really does. Just apologize and invite us over and all will be forgiven.

      • L84Tea says:

        WK: We don’t even want to come to your place in Montecito!

        HM: Oh, we didn’t realize you were coming to the states. Why? You thought you’d be invited to our house?

        WK: Ok fine, we’ll come…

    • Chrissy (The Original) says:

      Not just that. Don’t they need an on official invitation from the WH or State Dept to set foot on US soil for official visits? Do we really think the Bidens want them here to continue their their crusade against the Sussexes on US soil? How bad would it look for the hypocritcal Lamebridges to show up in a private jet for the failure that is Earthshot? I predict that Willnot’s hatred and ego will consume him and the Cambs will become an even bigger laughing stock than they already are if this plan occurs.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Chrissy, I think (someone else, please correct me if I’m wrong!) that in order for us to be *obligated* to pay their security costs while they’re here, there would have needed to be some sort of official invitation?
        But the thing is, we’ll end up paying for it no matter what, because no city wants anything to happen to a royal on their watch. It seems like the NYPD was out in force when the Sussexes were here, if only to cover their own asses. I think they did the same for Diana even after the divorce. Imagine something happening to one of them on your “turf” as a police chief? Yikes. But I’m not positive about this.

  12. Yogibear says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Meghan and Harry took a trip to Europe while the Cambridge’s are in the US? Maybe a quick pop in to the Uk to see the queen? When is Invictus again lol? The British press would drop Will and Kate so fast to high tail it back to cover H &M in Europe. Meghan photographed with Maxima or Leti or other European royals? *Chefs kiss*

    • Jan90067 says:

      Now THAT is a great idea!! lolol

      • JT says:

        Just like they dropped Will and Kate during the Sussexes You Coulda Had a Bad Bitch tour. The rota couldn’t wait to hightail it out of Ireland to cover the Sussexes. Maybe H&M should be spotted at Disneyland with the kiddos. That would really knock them off of the front pages. I know Haz and Megz aren’t reactionary like that, but it would be glorious. I’m petty, so my mind immediately goes in the gutter.

    • Nyro says:

      That would be incredible. The thing is, they wouldn’t even have to do anything official like an event with other royals. They could literally just go on vacation and be out in the street with the people. Instagram and tiktok would be flooded with photos and videos of them from regular people. That alone would have the paps and the royal rota desperately trying to get back across the Atlantic. 😂

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Yogibear, oohhhhh!!! You guys are going to all give me wonderful dreams and I will be giddy with joy as to how ALL of this will play out!! The ongoing campaign of the “everyone loves ME more” campaign so that PWT can try to seal his delusions of admiration of how great HE is compared to Harry, and more importantly Meghan!!

        I wonder if, as a matter of joyful occasions, we could have a national registry for the Lambridge Colossal Disaster Tour!! As we prepare to watch their FFK/QC tour in the US, surrounded by our favorite entertainment snacks!! All while we enjoy watching their tour burn in real time!!!

      • Gabby says:

        The Earthshot-itself-in-the-foot tour.

  13. Gk says:

    This is bigger then the royals from what I’ve read the economy in Britain is doing badly. So partly distraction and hope Will/Kate can bring in tourist dollars.

  14. Jais says:

    This is honestly embarrassing for Will and Kate, going to the US to compete with the sussex popularity. I’m sure they are concerned about their reputation after the Oprah interview, but I also feel they have to do this to appease the tabloid beast they’ve been feeding. Nothing has worked to draw Harry and Meghan back to England and the tabloids want these stories so now William and Kate must go there and feed the beast with stories. They drove the sussexes away and so now they must go to them. Kind of sucks for them seeing as how they’re so lazy and are used to everything coming to them.

  15. Steph says:

    They are going to be so fucked up when they come here to no fan fare. I don’t think any celebrities will show up but some officials will. But that’s it. No lines in the street etc.

    • L84Tea says:

      Oh I would love it…And you’re right. They’re gonna find out how much celebrities will NOT want to associate with them. The Oprah interview alone was powerful, eye-opening stuff. But with this new report out about the targeted hate accounts and it possibly be connected to KP?? Yeah no, just stay home dear little sausages.

      • Chica says:

        Idiot know. They have American fans. Likely wherever they choose to go, there will be people who will show up if only those who talk them up online that live here in the states. Will they have Meghan and Harry sized crows? Doubtful. But if they bring the kids, I think that would compel more ppl to show up.

        I think they’ll be hecklers. But y’all act like white supremacy doesn’t supersede everything for some people. There are Dems on Twitter degrading Meghan to uplift Keen.

        It will all be interesting to see play out no matter what happens.

    • TabithaD says:

      Personally I’m hoping a few people turn up to heckle or boo them. That would be glorious.

  16. Queen Meghan's Hand says:

    This trip ain’t gonna happen. Baldimort said that off-the-cuff hoping that would generate more buzz for Keenshot. Kensington has yet to announce which state and city the Cambridges will visit yet they keep talking about it like it’s been planned before The Other Brother made his announcement. Wrapped up and tied in a bow.
    The Queen is not doing well: it’s an absolute fantasy that The Incandescent and Doolitte will be able to prioritize an official trip to a non-Commonwealth in the next months.

    • MsIam says:

      I agree. Harry’s Invictus Games are announced two years in advance. While Keenshot is no where near as big, its not like they can throw it together in a couple of weeks. If they are coming next year, they would need to be announcing the venue soon. If they don’t its not happening unless its very, very small scale like in the hotel lobby where they stay.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I think this is like that 2nd Canada tour when Willy made a comment about how Kate loved Canada and wanted to go back and visit, next thing you know Trudeau invites them for a state visit.

      This is them angling for a free holiday to the US. And we ALL know how these 2 treat international state visits – like it’s a private holiday.

      • Lorelei says:

        @QueenMeghansHand I just howled at that reference! It will never stop being hilarious.

        @DigitalUnicorn, ITA, and I hope no one takes the bait.

  17. aquarius64 says:

    They can NOT be this stupid at KP. No meet up with the Sussexes will be the lead story in American media and it would look bad for the Cambridges. And wanting Harry and Meghan to walk back what they said to Oprah shows W and K know they are trash in the US and afraid they will be booed at an event (and the US press will report it.) Take responsibility for the mess you made Cambridge’s and make amends to the Sussexes then talk.

    • JT says:

      Let’s be real, no meet up with H&M would be the lead story in the UK as well.

    • Jay says:

      Aquarius, the amount of times we’ve all said here at CB “Oh, c’mon, the palace can’t be that stupid…” only to be proven wrong is astounding. They might, in fact, be just exactly that stupid! More fun for us, I suppose.

  18. L4Frimaire says:

    What I find funny is that they are peddling this story again and other silliness about Harry but completely silent on the release of the report exposing those troll accounts, coordinated attacking Meghan and all those accounts being suspended. It seems some of the disgruntled haters on Twitter are tagging royal reporters saying that they owe them and are upset the royal reporters haven’t mentioned the report to defend their relentless attacks against Meghan. Does anyone over here even care about this prize when Congress won’t even get any climate legislation passed thanks to our coal loving Senator Manchin? Those two just want a weekend in the Hamptons and someone to praise them for snubbing Harry and Meghan. I guess since they can’t snub them in the UK, they need to outsource Will and Kate to the US to do it,lol.

  19. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Well, I think I can speak for all us New Yorkers when I say, New York don’t wantcha. Keep out. We drove the shitty Trumps away and have no patience for more entitled racist failing layabouts.

  20. mariahlee says:

    This can’t possibly be the spin they want out there… right? Anyway, I hope there’s no public reconciliation until the family/firm/whatever acknowledge their wrongdoing. And for W&K in particular, they need to answer for why they’ve been so unsupportive through it all. At best, the Oprah interview indicated that they were unhelpful when H&M were struggling (and we here have an idea of the extent of their involvement). They can’t be the good, hip and modern royals, yet be indifferent to and sometimes even hostile toward the mixed race members of their family.

  21. Amy Bee says:

    I think this story is going to turn into an outrage when the press find out that Harry and Meghan didn’t reach out to the Cambridges and they’re going to be angry that they did give support to Earthshot in the US. If William and Kate really care about the environment they would keep the show in the UK like the Nobel Prize. But this is not really about climate change but about boosting William’s image and emulating the global reach of the Invictus Games. The press still doesn’t get that this rivalry is one-sided and is coming from the desperate Cambridges.

  22. Chill says:

    Can’t wait till the crowds boo the Cambridges!! Can’t wait till they start yelling Meghan! Harry!!

  23. Marivic says:

    It is Harry who William needs if he wants to attract and capture huge attention and massive reach for his 2022 event. William and Kate can’t even capture a fly to stay with them. They have no “it” factor.

  24. Lorelei says:

    I screamed at:
    “If Harry dropped his book project and admitted some of his and Meghan’s comments were over the top there might be some progress”

    Phil Dampier is a delusional prick. That is just such an arrogant attitude, oozing with entitlement. Basically, “Harry should drop his little book project.” It’s not a “book project” Phil, it’s a memoir being published by a major, respected publishing house and Harry has every right to write it. Additionally, going on what Harry has said about the book so far, it will be focusing on *his* journey to where he is now in his own life, it’s not some Kitty Kelley style book gossiping all about the other royals.

    And their comments on Oprah were exactly the opposite of “over the top.” They held back a LOT— I remember many of us here discussing how much worse it could have been right after it aired. FFS Meghan went so far as to call Kate “a good person.” The Windsors *should* be grateful instead of all haughty and put-upon, but of course they’re not because they’re the Windsors.

    tl;dr Phil Dampier can fck right off.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Love this and exactly. I guess these miscreants want Harry to drop his memoir like they’ve dropped discussing the false bullying investigation/report. We know how long they’ve dragged out the Oprah interview. The investigation/report stories seemed to die pretty quickly when it was announced nothing would come out until next year’s Sovereign Grant report. I don’t recall the BM challenging the delay.

      Cambridges can stay in the UK. Maybe a social media/tv blackout should happen if they come here.

  25. ModeratelyWealthy says:

    I see some possibilities:
    1) As William saw fit to use his beloved pet project as another way to ” put Harry in his place” and it seems now the RR, instead of getting angry at him for snubbing UK press and giving exclusives to People, are now firmly on camp ” Team Cambridge will take over America!”, William has, inadvertently, put more pressure on himself and his project to be a success, which is never a good thing for William
    2) The Queen is not well, next year is her Jubileum and Harry will launch a book, so William might need to rethink his strategy if anything happens to old Brenda- the ” trip with the children” pics was already a failure, he cannot be accused of being uncaring by travelling to US when in mourning/TQ is in hospital etc
    3)I doubt Harry cares.

  26. Keri says:

    “The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the king and queen of green,”

    I see what you did there UK tabloid rats. Not that I’m complaining. They just can’t help themselves. But then again, if it was my job to fluff and prop these two useless turds, I’d throw in some truth bombs using double speak too. Hahahahaha!

  27. Weatherby says:

    Can I just say: Kate’s manic guffaw is the *very same* from both the title pic and heading pic. Showing she’s really only got one “pretending to be happy” face.

      Are we sure she’s not actually a tonsil exhibitionist? Is that a thing?

  28. Eating Popcorn says:

    Isn’t it interesting that all the Cambridges PR keeps mentioning the but not the other way around… I thought the RF were going to freeze H&M out and that was going to be the ULTIMATE revenge. Why does that tail or tale, more accurately, keep wagging the dog.

  29. Rapunzel says:

    Willyboy and KatieKeens are dying for US adulation to one up the Sussexes.

    Americans are not about to laud this Earthshot shit though. This is exactly the kind of faux environmentalist bull Americans will have no trouble calling out. And if he flies in for this, it’s hypocrisy that Americans won’t tolerate. They will be eviscerated.

    And you know what? I think the RRs want that. It’s my belief that they’re encouraging this to Wills so he will get shredded by the US press and never court them again. That really is the perfect revenge for Will courting the likes of People mag.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Rapunzel, it hadn’t occurred to me until I read your comment, but I think your last paragraph is spot on. And all it will do is make this sh!tshow more entertaining for us to watch play out.

    To quote RiRi, “Good luck with booking that stage u speak of” Cambridges.

    Oh please. As if Meghan wants these two kkk invading her peacefulness under her tree. And I am quite sure Americans don’t give a royal f about the keenbridges.
    It is quite telling though how the RR can’t even paint the keenbridges in a good light as people who would be giddy to see their niece and nephew. That would have shown them in a positive way as having a heart, but I guess you can’t install what you weren’t born with

  35. Chantal says:

    They really don’t know how to read the room or pay attention. Twitter, after first claiming no evidence after their bs 12 hr “investigation”, reconsidered after several reputable news sources carried the Bot Sentinel report and reinforced it’s credibility. They subsequently suspended several troll accounts. There were numerous tweets questioning the source of the money funding these accts, with the majority saying PW/KP and the BM. And the BM/BRF decides to unnecessarily draw more negative attention to themselves by coming out with yet another one sided competition (on their part) story the next day! Meghan’s The Bench reading had unfortunately and I’m sure unintentionally overshadowed the Bot Sentinel report by the days end and became THE story. But thanks to the never ending incompetence, jealousy and stupidity of KP/BRF/BM, they are front and center again. Christopher/Bot Sentinel says he has part 2 of the report coming soon. I’m glad but also sad the recent threats toward him and his daughter and the release of some of his private info hasn’t deterred him. It’s truly scary and I admire his bravery. Hopefully the FBI is investigating. And the BRF’s self destruction can’t come soon enough.

    WTF?! It’s going to take a lot more than £50million to save the planet. Who writes this shite? This is nothing more than performative theatrics and will only highlight the hypocrisy between what the Cambridges think they’re accomplishing and how they’re actually doing fuk-all while living a lazy, gas-guzzling, private helicopter/jet flying life. They think they can rival the Sussexes? I can hear Harry saying “Hold my beer….”

  37. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Why do the Cambridges want to leave England so badly? Do they not like it there? Immediately after asking OTHER people not to fly, they announce that THEY will fly to America, a country that won a war to avoid having to listen to what royalty has to say. And they the took the whole family to the airport to fly somewhere for a 2-day vacation. Hypocrites, and secret Eng l and haters (why are they constantly looking for a reason to leave?)

  38. SueBarbri says:

    They should be focused on the Commonwealth, not on the USA. This is ridiculous and unnecessary. I wonder what’s going on at KP. The entire team has lost the plot.

    BYE WIG!

  41. Tiffany says:

    I was just thinking about these two today at random and what Meghan said about Kate being a kind person and the media stories and what not.

    Kate really was the only option that Bill wanted in women like Jecca and Isabella. He wanted those women to want him, be there for him at his beck and call and they were not having. At most, he would have been the beck and call (or The Mattress) for them until they got someone better ( and they both did). Bill knows that and I believe that is why his sorta hates Kate in some capacity. Harry knew. He wasn’t playing games with Meghan or dragging his feet. He knew this was it and knew what he had to do to lock it down. See, Bill don’t know what that is like because Jecca and Isabella played him like he played Kate all those years.

    And this is just what we see, can you imagine what Meghan saw and heard.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Tiffany, I was listening to some crime podcast a few days ago, and one of the suspects was such a sociopath that someone who knew her said she “viewed the Ten Commandments as her bucket list” and I swear to god it immediately reminded me of William!

      He just seems like one of those people who is always unhappy and angry about something, no matter what positives he has going on in his life. It’s like he always wants revenge on *someone* and he thrives on taking others down instead of improving himself at all. He comes across as fueled by bitterness.

      • Tiffany says:

        @Lorelei. That fact that he never did any self reflection on why he could not get the partner he wanted or the kind of partner he should be to those women.

        His arrogance is staggering.

    • Maria says:

      I’m starting to believe other commenters when they say William was insanely attracted to her and part of his racist tirades is resentment from her and Harry shutting it down. It would give some more context into the obsessive SWF-ing Kate does to Meghan.

      • TIFFANY says:

        See Maria, I don’t think he was attracted to Meghan. I think he was pissed that Meghan didn’t suffer fools and would always have eyes for Harry and his back. And that is the result of knowing he could never flirt with her to be spiteful.

        He couldn’t interlope and mess with their relationship as the heir like he did when he was dating within their society circle.

      • Zebz says:

        He absolutely attracted to her. Watch there walk from Christmas 2017. He acted like he was in heat. His lust for her was so clear. He did this several times too. He wants Meghan badly.

  42. Snarkle says:

    I, for one, will go see the keens on US soil, but only to throw teabags at them. Feel free to join me 🙂

  43. CrystalBall says:

    Can you imagine the outcry if Harry and Meghan created a planet-saving prize and then flew all the way to the UK to present it? Naturally this is completely different to William and Kate flying all the way to the USA to present the Earthshot prize, after making the London presentation a no-fly event.

    William and Kate are such gormless hypocrites and shame on the UK media for not only letting them get away with this but even worse, lauding them despite their insincerity. What a fraudulent pair of smoothtalkers.

  44. MaryContrary says:

    They always talk up future projects but very few ever come to fruition. I’m sure they’ll visit the US again at some point but there’s no way they can recapture the enthusiasm that people had for them when they were first married.

  45. Athena says:

    The British politicians made a mess of Brexit and thought they would get a new trading deal with the US. The Biden administration is not renewing a deal until the mess with Northern Ireland is cleared up.
    The British and American relationship is one in which one side cares more than the other and it’s not the Americans. It’s like that person you’re happy to see when you them but don’t even think about them when you don’t see them. I would wager that the majority of Americans don’t even know who William and Kate are. The British press and W&K are delusional if they think America cares.

    The Sussexes should get “pap” at a restaurant somewhere in Hawaii or anywhere outside of the continental US on the same day as Earthshot and we’ll see whose picture will lead the news. They won’t do it, but they should.

  46. Iriser says:

    “Speaking at a reception afterwards, William said: ‘We raised the bar — now over to the US.’

    LOLOLOLOL. Laughing so hard I gave myself an ab workout. IF they come over here, the only coverage they’ll get from US press will be questions about why they’re not meeting their little niece and nephew, whether the brothers have spoken, and then onto Prince Andrew. To the extent that Americans care, it’s the soap opera we’re interested in, the Real Housewives of Windsor vibe. That’s it. Ain’t nobody about to give boring Willie a platform to lecture about the environment. How can KP be so stupid? Unless it’s intentional, as another poster said, and the rota are flattering W&K into self-immolation.

    • Aengus says:

      @Iriser You wrote “the rota are flattering W&K into self-immolation.” That is so true! And the rota will make bank with that self-immolation until the monarchy ends or they manufacture stories to save it.

    They are gojng to hire actors for the crowds to cheer for them amongst the booing, I guarantee it. They had no problem buying bot followers, they’ll for sure plant actors in the crowds so that it can be declared a triumph.

    I hope Keen brings that gold bond dress and Princess Margaret wig with her so we can all have a good laugh. With her theme dressing expect a lot of red white and blue.
    Also I hope Meghan and Harry make an appearance the day the lamebridges leave and completely overshadow them.

    It’s a big country. We’ve got plenty of space and red carpets for whoever wants to prance down them. Doesn’t have to be an either/or. If they want to come stateside and do…whatever it is that they do, then sure, c’mon over.

    unfortunately for the Cambridges, William’s chosen PR cause being the environment puts him at odds with the values of the white nationalist karens that comprise their base of support here, who view climate change as a leftist hoax. This is like Piers Morgan thinking he could appeal to the American right wing as a pundit while simultaneously being critical of America’s insane gun culture before his show was cancelled because no one watched it. There’s no audience here for that kind of mishmash foreign politics.
