Duchess Camilla told people that President Biden farted in front of her

Boris Johnson -COP26 World Leaders Summit Day 1

President Joe Biden went to the COP26 conference straight from the G20 Summit in Rome. It was the Biden Roadshow and he was absolutely there to reassure our European (and NATO) allies that America is back, baby. Is it possible that perhaps a 78-year-old man ate something in Europe that didn’t agree with him? For sure. My guess is: gelato. Joe Biden is an ice cream man and gelato is a lot heavier and maybe his stomach was not prepared for it. In any case, the Daily Mail would have us believe that Joe Biden was perhaps pretty gassy by last Monday’s COP26 evening reception in Glasgow. The Mail claims that Gassy Joe broke wind in front of the Duchess of Cornwall and that Camilla has spoken of little else since.

He is supposed to be committed to reducing emissions – but when President Joe Biden produced a little natural gas of his own at the COP26 summit, it was audible enough to make the Duchess of Cornwall blush.

An informed source has told The Mail on Sunday that Camilla was taken aback to hear Biden break wind as they made polite small talk at the global climate change gathering in Glasgow last week.

‘It was long and loud and impossible to ignore,’ the source said. ‘Camilla hasn’t stopped talking about it.’

The President met the Duchess during a reception on Monday at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery, attended by Prince Charles, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Boris Johnson.

This is not the first time that Biden has faced claims that he broke wind. In May 2020, Republicans, including Donald Trump Jr, posted a video clip of Biden containing a suspicious noise while live-streaming an exchange with Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf. However, a separate video which circulated last month – and was briefly trending on Twitter under #Fartgate – was found to have been doctored to include fake flatulence.

At COP26, Biden apologised for Trump’s actions in taking the United States out of the Paris Climate Accord and he pledged that America would devote more resources to fighting climate change. The President was ‘gonged’ eight times by organisers for running past the three minutes allotted for his speech. This summer, Johnson praised Biden as being ‘a big breath of fresh air’ on climate change compared to his predecessor.

Appropriately, Biden has urged world leaders to cut methane gas emissions by 30 per cent by the end of the decade. Cows and other livestock contribute substantially to global methane levels. The White House declined to comment last night.

[From The Daily Mail]

Personally, I think Republicans and right-wing media want to make “Biden’s gastric issues” into a thing even if they have to pull this kind of farty nonsense. It’s projection on their part, especially given that it was widely assumed/known that Donald Trump sh-t his diaper constantly, and even stumbled out of meetings because of his stomach/dinosaur ass issues. Now, do I believe President Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is a chronic farter? Kind of, the man does eat a lot of ice cream and ice cream always gives me gas. But I also believe that she who smelt it dealt it, she who detected it ejected it and whoever spoke it broke it. It sounds like a royal conspiracy to me and once again Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall is right in the rancid-fart center.

    Ahhhh, the RF just reeks of class, don’t they? I would expect nothing from Camilla other than this.

    • Janey says:

      I was about to say the same, dear god, just ignore it. I’m middle aged and fart all the time and he’s an old dude! sure tell Charles and have a private giggle about it but good lord keep it to yourself. this is just embarrassing for Camilla, not Biden.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Seriously. My spouse takes natural fiber daily and it makes him rather airy. Gas is a given, and a quick apology for a public fart is commonplace (his coworkers joke about it). I’d rather deal with an audible and move on than be brutalized with an anonymous, rank, stealth-bomb. That’s *nasty*.

      • MyOpinion says:

        Not only that but it brings on a pretense as if no one in the RF farts!! I am certain that Chaz is up there in the land of fart-o-meter hemisphere, as well as Camilla!! We are to believe that they don’t fart? I am certain TQ at 95 has quite a few doozies herself!! You apologize and move on. My gosh, FFS!!!!

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @MyOpionion, right! A silly story. Upon further review, I’ve decided that the picture shared of President Biden & William laughing and talking with Biden’s hand on Will’s shoulder had a different meaning. It was Biden consoling the Incandescent one for loudly sending methane out at the conference. President Biden probably said, “It’s okay Other Brother, royal asses pass gas too!”.

    • teehee says:

      Was thinking the same. While “everyone is fair game” apparently in the world of media and celebrity, it seems pretty much extremely unrefined to go about talking about other people’s digestive upsets.
      Because clearly no one passes gas in front of royalty on purpose, I will deduct a point from the RF on this one.

    • Smacd says:

      I may be a nobody from the colonies but even I know that this is not a conversation topic to be harping on. These people have absolutely zero class.

    • MMadison says:

      Apparently Camilla hasn’t met Jill Biden

    • superashes says:

      Yeah. This reads as wholly made up to me, because I can’t imagine a member of the Royal Family ever commenting on something like this. Also, honestly, I feel like there is a “free fart” generation made up of people that are 65+. Like, they just straight up fart and go about their business like it is no big deal. So, for that reason, I also don’t see someone in that age bracket making a big deal about it even if they weren’t in the Royal Family.

      • Gruey says:

        Of all the stories that come out about this fucking family, this is the one that actually sorta shocks and offends me. Like, fuck you lady. Seriously. This is helpful to a transatlantic alliance to curb climate change how??????

      • Tessa says:

        Charles should have gone alone, and left Camilla, William and Kate back in the UK.

      • Christine says:

        You really can’t??? See: Charles and Camilla’s convo re. tampons.

      • GraceB says:

        I feel like this is entirely make up too, or extremely exaggerated, and curious that it’s now a story. Biden gets much more critical press in the UK, than he seems to in the US. Sure I can see it having happened. I can even see Camilla having joked about it to someone close to her. I just find it hard to believe that now she’s going around telling everyone.

        Tampongate was private calls which were supposed to only be between the two of them. It’s gross and not something I want t think about, but they never said that to other people. Most people would be mortified if their private, sexual conversations were made public.

        I think this is a very shady story, aimed at both Biden and Camilla.

    • Killfanora says:

      Shrugs, so what? Everyone does it. More to the point, what ARE though wild bushes above Camilla’s eyes??

    • SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

      But apparently we need the royal fam for their peerless inborn skills of diplomacy. Yep.

    • ElleV says:

      Camilla has never struck me as *classy* – I would have though she’d love a good fart and some rumpy-pumpy humour so it’s tough to imagine her pearl-clutching about this

    • SarahLee says:

      Exactly. Camilla can just take a seat and hush.

    • Ry says:

      I’d be more embarrassed to talk about it. Instead of focusing on the good, they center in on this. What do they want? Trump to come back and grab their pussies? .and I really wouldn’t talk with Camillas history

    • Ritata says:

      She was probably the one who farted and then blamed it on Joe 💨

      • LoonyTunes says:

        Per Kaiser—“But I also believe that she who smelt it dealt it, she who detected it ejected it and whoever spoke it broke it.” 😅😂

    • Christine says:

      Yeah, everybody farts. If this is news to the British press, or Camilla, I will eat my shoes.

  2. Aurora says:

    That this was a headline in UK news speaks volumes.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      We have deep seated corruption amongst our MPs with many of them being paid by lobbyists to influence policy. We have sewage being dumped in our rivers and no food on our supermarket shelves. Then there’s the £3m for a peerage scandal. But someone’s bodily functions are more important. SMH

    • GraceB says:

      This was never headline news in the UK. It was a small, shady story in the DM. I know the US and UK DM have different front pages, so maybe it came up as a bigger story on the US site, but I never even saw it on the UK site. I don’t doubt that it’s there, but it wasn’t obvious.

      @Elizabeth Regina, I agree but the DM has dubious motives at the best of times, so who knows why they decided this was newsworthy.

  3. Jillian says:

    Camilla! This is so classless, I thought these crusty saltines were supposed to have at least the veneer of good manners. A polite person ignores this sort of thing and most certainly doesn’t rush to tell everyone she knows. So trashy.

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      The glitter has fallen off the turd. The world sees them for what they really are. What had two Duchesses attend COP26: one was waving insect protein around taking the piss and the other was tactless and indiscreet. The UK must be so proud of their representatives.

    • Mac says:

      Ms Tampax is so classless.

    • Nan says:

      Camilla keeps slipping up and showing us that her trashy self does not know how to behave. Remember when Bishop Michael Curry gave his sermon at the Sussex wedding? The cameras caught Camilla’s reactions in plain view.

      • Tessa says:

        She also giggled at singers who were entertaining her and Charles when they were on tour. She smirked at the sermon, she has no manners.

  4. Noki says:

    ‘But I also believe that she who smelt it dealt it, she who detected it ejected it and whoever spoke it broke it.’…… *flatlines* 🤣🤣🤣

  5. heygingersnaps says:

    So what if it happened? People fart, it’s a fact of life, no big deal. This is so juvenile. Just like the clips that some media companies are trying to blow up of him dozing off or something.

    • Memememememe says:

      Yet when Giuliani did it, they made fun of him for months on here and still do *eyeroll*
      The hypocrisy here amazes me

      • L84Tea says:

        There’s a difference between Biden and Guiliani though. Biden is POTUS and a stand up decent guy who likely let one slip on accident. Guiliani is a criminal, and a sweating, hair dyeing, junk grabbing, booger wiping one to boot. He deserves to be laughed at.

      • Tessa says:

        you do realize that those are value judgments, not objective differences, right? To the right, Giuliani is a stand-up decent guy who went to bat for the poor embattled president and let one slip, for which he was dragged in liberal media. And Biden is a thug who stole the election and is now farting up a storm all over the world. Right? I mean, I don’t actually think that, but surely you realize that it’s just YOUR worldview, not an actual explanation?

      • Maria says:

        Well the worldviews of those who supported people who wanted to lynch certain senators are really not all that important to me, sorry, particularly as Giuliani has been under investigation since before the election and his activities since then have caused him to lose his law license (those are some large objective differences, for one). To anyone who still thinks of him as a reasonable representative of anything – I’m going to laugh at them and at him. Call me biased all you want, lol.

      • Emma says:

        Wtf it isn’t a “worldview” difference. It’s reality vs. propaganda. The Trump gang are criminals who spread a demonstrably false claim about stolen elections with insane dedication, a lie even Bill Barr (Trump’s handpicked stooge!) could not support, a lie even the far-FAR-right Supreme Court could not support.

        I don’t care if an old man farts. It’s gross and shouldn’t be national news but who cares. I care about stealing our national election — which TRUMP AND GIULIANI tried to do and which BILL BARR AND JOHN ROBERTS (and Mike Pence on 1/6) would not allow! This is not Democrats vs Republicans, it was an internal Republican conflict between the most basic rule of law and outright criminal thugs.

      • MB says:


        Yeah, Guiliani, the guy who had a press conference at Four Seasons Landscaping right by the crematorium and a dildo shop. Farting is the least of why people are laughing at him.

      • heygingersnaps says:

        Oh boy! People were laughing/aghast at Guiliani’s antics, lying and that crazy circus he did to try to destroy democracy while looking unhinged, intoxicated or under the influence. Dump and his ilk are all about projection and all that talk about dump needing to be on depends is probably why they are trying to stir up some story about Biden’s bodily functions.

      • Misskitten says:

        RE:MEMEMEME- I pretty much always agree with the sentiments in this blog, the only time I’ve found myself vigorously disagreeing is during random fashion critiques. However, I have to admit, you have a point. When Giuliani farted during that court hearing, this blog, and I myself, went to town ridiculing him. And yes, this blog, and I myself, still do occasionally bring it up, usually accompanied by some juvenile new nickname for Ol’ Farty. And yet, here we are, admonishing Camilla for being so juvenile as to be continuously clowning Biden for HIS gas. So MEMEMEME, in this instance, on this topic, you are right. This blog (and I myself) are being very hypocritical.

      • Maria says:

        Are any of us major diplomatic and governmental representatives making flatulence jokes after a semi-major world summit to a far-right almost Neo-Nazi newspaper? If not, we can stop with the false equivalence of this and Giuliani, honestly.

      • WithTheAmerican says:

        Do you believe CB has the same diplomatic responsibility as the future king’s wife?

        Because that explains a lot. This is a gossip site.

        Camilla is a “non political” royal being paid a lot of money re support to simply act like she has class while hosting and entertaining high level global leaders and diplomats.

    • Annie says:

      @HeyGingerSnaps, exactly. My child has known since the age of six or so that even if someone does, you don’t comment on it because it’s rude, yet this bitch “can’t stop talking about it” to the entire world? So glad that crass Meghan is gone (/s) and the BRF is back to being “regal” again.

      • heygingersnaps says:

        @Annie, I grew up with so many issues with bodily functions because I was shamed for it when I was young and it affected me negatively. It’s taken a long time to let go of those negative thoughts and behaviour but when I became pregnant I vowed that I wouldn’t transfer my issues to my son.
        We talk about how weeing, pooping, farting etc is just normal. No big deal and that he needs to listen to his body and if he needs to go to the toilet, to speak up and not hold it in as it’s nothing to be ashamed of particularly now that he goes to school. I’ve had children fart near me and look worried possibly because they might be made fun of and I just act normal and keep quiet about it. I’ve had children do that and laugh it off and that’s it.
        The fact that the British media is making a big deal out of this, says more about them than Biden.

  6. Becks1 says:

    I saw this story over the weekend and my only comments are:

    1) everyone “breaks wind,” passes gas, farts, whatever (although I hate the word “fart” with a passion). sometimes you can hold it it until you’re in the bathroom or alone and sometimes you really can’t.

    2) It’s so incredibly rude for Camilla to be “talking of nothing else since” (does she have nothing else going on in her life?) and to have shared this story far and wide (if that’s what did indeed happen, that Biden passed gas in front of her and she is telling everyone the story.)

    3) Remember on the Windsors when Camilla was trying to get pregnant to have an heir that could oust William from the line of succession and it turned out she was just full of gas?

    • OriginalLala says:

      I loved that Windsors episode! “It’s not a baby, it’s trapped wind” lol

    • Meghan says:

      Do you know who basically talks of nothing else except farts? My 5 year old. When farts get old he shifts to poop. It’s exhausting. So now I’ve got Camilla on par with my 5 year old. (Also my autocorrect was changing farts to facts)

      Now, if Biden passed gas in front of me I would definitely be all “did he? No. Yes. Maybe?” And possibly tell my best friend, not be talking of nothing else. But I would also think there were other more important things happening that I could talk about other than the President having a perfectly normal bodily function.

    • MMadison says:

      Now we know why they keep her from speaking in public. Of all the things she could say to the press this she finds most important. The Brits spend a significant amount of time disparaging the USA. On the other hand Americans rarely speak about the UK… why is that?

      • MrsBump says:

        Does the US ever talk abt any other country in much detail?
        When i watch CNN, i feel like the news are really ethnocentric, and other countries are only talked about if it impacts the US in anyway.

    • Steph says:

      Is this a tv show? Where can I watch it?

      • Becks1 says:

        It’s on Netflix and it is HILARIOUS. Even my husband loves it and we’ve watched all three seasons at least twice.

    • Isabellla says:

      Honestly, I don’t know what the RF was doing at this very important conference. And they did a terrible job. They don’t offer a touch of glamour or even sweetness ala QE. Meanwhile, UK’s actual leaders are overshadowed by these crusty fools.

      • MMadison says:

        They will be remembered for a teenager upstaging William’s speech and Camilla whispering to reporters that the POTUS farted…loudly. Clearly they have NO USE to the rest of the world

    • The Recluse says:

      Once you get to a certain age as well gas is an issue. it just happens. Camilla has no class. If she had, she would have been polite enough to overlook the incident.

  7. Amy Bee says:

    The reaction to this story has been people bringing up the fact that Charles wanted to be Camilla’s tampon, that she gave him a send-off the day before his wedding to Diana and that she was Charles’ mistress. It may have been better for her if CH had kept quiet about this. I suspect that, as anti-American as they are, the royals didn’t like Biden and decided to take him down a peg or two by leaking this story. Contrary to popular belief, I think the Royals liked Trump because he showed deference to the Queen and her family. Biden is of Irish descent who always talks about what the British did to the Irish.

    • SnoodleDumpling says:

      Plus, Biden has made clear that he’s not interested in making any trade deals with the UK that violate the Good Friday Agreement, and that the UK will not take get a higher priority than the EU when it comes to trade deals. The UK government has a lot of reasons to want to knock him down a few pegs.

    • MMadison says:

      I don’t think the RF liked Trump. Proof is that you can’t find ONE single picture of Ivanka with Kate. Trust me, Ivanka wanted that photo. I don’t think the RF gets how much Americans are beginning to question exactly why do they matter or better yet why should they matter to USA. So to have Camilla come out with this petty foolishness she did more harm than good to their brand in the USA. It really just reinforce how a lot of the mystique of the RF was FAKE and was driven by the FAKE Royal Reporters. Scratch the surface and they are a dysfunctional family that has convinced a nation to pay for their livelihoods and treat them better than their own families…..in other words, it’s a con game

  8. Nicole says:

    What would hte UK do without the soft diplomacy skills of the RF lol

  9. L84Tea says:

    Keep it Klassy, Royal Family, as always.

  10. Shawna says:

    The energy I saw on Twitter was all about the hypocrisy of the center of TamponGate calling attention to someone else’s bodily functions.

  11. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Could be true. But all this proves is that Camilla is the gasbag we always knew she was. She and Charles deserve each other and they can stick it where the sun don’t shine…but where Tampax reign supreme.

  12. Monica says:

    I blame Trump for this. He loosened the sphincter of propriety in public discourse and this is the result.

  13. Sofia says:

    I’m sorry but I find this pretty funny. Everyone passes gas. It’s natural. Maybe my sense of humour is just broken. I also don’t get the massive outrage towards Camilla. I get that this isn’t a polite thing to gossip about at ALL but some are out for Camilla’s blood which seems like an overreaction to me if I’m being honest.

    • Name keeps changing cos I delete my cookies says:

      I dunno about seeing outrage at Camilla, but definitely frowny faces at how unseemly this headline is, for Camilla and the British media. For sure it’s tacky of her to be the mouthpiece for this story. IF IT EVEN HAPPENED (being an adult who is unable to let go of someone farting, assuming they farted, which is a healthy and natural bodily function), cos hello, royal tabloids. Which makes me wonder, who leaked it and why? This makes Camilla look deeply, deeply, classless and tone deaf cos she’s also an elderly person, why perpetuate in the “old people are stinky” trope? This and the Fawcett story makes me wonder if Camilla is in someone’s cross-hairs. And WHY.

      • Sofia says:

        Eh, I’ll disagree with you about the reactions towards Camilla being just “frowny faces”. She trended on weekend because of this story and I saw a lot of people mad at her. Granted a lot of it was Sussex Squad accounts and they’re obviously going to be upset at all royals except Harry and Meghan so maybe you’re actually right and nobody is that mad lol.

    • Miranda says:

      You know who was REALLY out for Camilla’s blood? Prince Tampon. #IrresistableGrossJoke

    • Snuffles says:

      Why? Because it’s rude to discuss, the royal family are supposed to be experts at soft diplomacy, the UK is trying to negotiate a trade deal with the US. If they are petty enough to try and embarrass the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES because they don’t like the fact that he’s Irish and won’t kiss their asses (or whatever reason), then what is the fucking point of them!? Why should the UK government trot them out when foreign dignitaries come, if they’re going to leak petty shit to the tabloid press? They could end up doing damage to foreign relations if no one can trust them to be discreet.

      I tell you, even with Trump being an utter ass every where he went, most foreign leaders still treated him with the respect accorded to the office he was holding. I’m sure they talked about him mercilessly in private but NEVER to the press. I mean COME ON! It’s basic manners.

      • Sofia says:

        I honestly think you and a lot of people are overestimating how much Biden will care about this. He’s not Trump, he’s not going to hold a grudge against this forever. Will he be upset that Camilla is gossiping about his normal bodily functions? Yes. But I don’t believe it’ll translate into major diplomatic sanctions from the US in anyway.

      • Maria says:

        I don’t think it resulting in sanctions is really the point. It’s just how disgusting that the invisible contract results in…articles like this, to put it lightly. And yes, it’s meant to insult the President – this paper lost a case to Meghan and he’s on record saying the Oprah interview “took courage”, I doubt this has any policy influence or that he cares, but I would not put it past them to be petty enough to take jabs like this.

      • Snuffles says:


        You’re missing the point. I know Biden is a big boy and has dealt with worse. My point is that, historically, the royals have been used as soft diplomacy. They’re supposed to be charm and grace personified. Now they will be seen as crass, rude and indiscreet. What is their worth to the UK if they are no longer seen as a valuable diplomatic asset? And Biden may be able to brush it off, but what about other Americans who see this rude behavior to our leaders on top of how they treated Meghan and claimed they didn’t like her because she was “too American”. How might this affect the royals ability to bring in tourists if they lose their appeal?

      • Sofia says:

        @Snuffles: I doubt most Brits are going to care. I’m a Brit and I say this. Most reactions I saw on Twitter was from Americans tbh. They can feel however they want to feel about it but this isn’t going to damage the royals long term in the eyes of Brits. If they come across this story and they think Camilla was in the wrong, they’ll just shrug it off by tomorrow.

        Again, I completely understand why some are upset with Camilla, especially Americans, but again, I don’t think this is going to have a major effect on how people are royals. Most don’t even see them as diplomatic assets (but you are right in that this is their job), but members of the longest running soap opera and their gossip being fun to read about in the supermarket aisle.

      • Maria says:

        Well, and therein lies the other problem – stories like this take away from the actual truth of their corruption.

        These types of stories are just gross any way you look at it. I was tempted to overcome my dislike of how Meghan was treated to go back to the UK to some of my old favorite places but I can tell you this made me change my mind right back, lol.

      • Sofia says:

        @Maria: And you would be right about that. They have terrible PR in general but the one thing their PR did right (along with the help of the media) is convince almost everyone they’re a harmless little family that’s only worth gossiping about instead of very real diplomatic figures who actually are supposed to be representing the country. And instead of being reported on like the diplomatic figures who take taxpayer funding to so said “jobs” they are, they’re treated as harmless gossip stories with little to no accountability by the media.

        What’s funnier is that every time you ask someone who’s a monarchist/media figures about what’s the use of the royals, you get the “well they represent the country” but when they’re supposed to represent the country, the media and public put their news into the gossip section and treats it like such.

      • Annie says:

        @Sofia, you can’t see how this was super inappropriate behavior on Camilla’s part?
        Of course there won’t be “sanctions,” for god’s sake. And no one is saying that whether or not Biden cares is the issue. The story is that Camilla behaved despicably. If you really don’t see why, and think what Camilla did is just fine, then I don’t think any of us here can help you.

        If it was a different time and the royal family was in a great position, it would STILL be rude and unacceptable, but considering they’re hanging on by a thread because of Andrew, Harry & Meghan leaving, Charles’s pay-for-play scandal, Kate’s consistently embarrassing the family due to her incompetence, and the Queen’s ill health, this is one more thing to add to the pile of their problems. Maybe in 2007 or something it wouldn’t be quite as damaging, but they cannot afford anymore bad press right now. And again, it would still be crass and disrespectful of Camilla to do this even if the family had no other problems at all. Most people learn when they’re small children that commenting on something like this is not okay.

      • Sofia says:

        @Annie: I see you read one line in my comment and decided to write your comment. I would suggest you go back and read my initial comment. If you do, you’ll see that I say and I quote: “I get that this isn’t a polite thing to gossip about at ALL” so I don’t even need any of your help to understand because I already get it.

        The only way I differ from most people commenting is that I say I’m not going to be out for Camilla’s blood other than “This wasn’t appropriate to say and she shouldn’t have said it.”

        And once again, I live in the UK. The royals are not going to be damaged by this. The only thing that seems to dent them is Andrew. It took HM paying his legal bills for her to get any sort of criticism and even now, people have moved on from that and are back to “God save the Queen!”. And the rest of the royals, particularly William and Kate, are doing fine. Are they beloved? No. But they’re not as hated (other than Gen Z) as some people here think they are. They’re tolerated which is enough for the monarchy (even if it’s not enough for the two of them). And I say this as someone who criticised W&K almost daily here.

        I’m not saying it’s right the way the royals act and are treated. I go into that in greater depth above. I am simply stating the reality of how they are treated, even if it isn’t right and it’s not what I think should happen.

      • Snuffles says:


        I wasn’t talking about how the UK will see this, I’m talking about how the rest of the world will see it, especially Americans. I am well aware that many in the UK will shrug it off, but you have to understand that the reputation of the royals on the world stage is becoming more and more damaged every day. And if your government is still trying to use them as diplomatic assets, this will be a real problem, long term.

        @Snuffles, i read about it in the French news, it’s just seen as a funny anecdote, nothing else, Americans need to relax, this is not going to damage Biden’s standing in the world, his messy exit from Afghanistan has done that already.

    • Emily says:

      That was my first question as well. I doubt Camilla wants this story out there. Was it Willileaks giving much-needed material to his tabloid friends? Or maybe Michael Fawcett is mad that she wants him out…

      • Tessa says:

        I think Fawcett is here to stay. Camilla cannot push him out. After all these years, she should realize it. IMO.

    • Wadsworth the Butler says:

      The Queen is viewed as an icon by world leaders. Even dictators like Putin respect her and treat her with deference. Charles and Camilla will struggle to replicate that effect, and it will be even harder if Camilla is viewed as gossipy and indiscreet.

    • Same says:

      @ Sofia – clearly I am immature because I think it’s funny AF. If the leader of the free world dropped a bomb in my presence I would tell EVERYONE I know.
      The difference is no one would leak it to the press for whatever motivated said person.

      I would tell stories to my grandkids

    • Isabellla says:

      Camilla was there supposedly to aid in the global climate crisis. Instead she turned it into a bad SNL sketch. Next time, keep her home

      • Tessa says:

        She should just stay with patronages about dog adoptions and meeting and greeting. And that’s that.

  14. Dota says:


  15. Nanny to the Rescue says:

    Eh, I believe he farted (accidently, it’s unfortunate but it happens). I also believe she found it either funny or gross and told some people. But from the way this is reported they make it sound like she evilly went to the press with it. But she didn’t. It’s a funny story.

    Way to move away focus from important to childish things.

  16. hindulovegod says:

    Camilla is vulgar. It speaks volumes that this trashy person is whom Charles wanted.

    • Tessa says:

      Diana IMO was too good for him. She really was interested in her charities and patronages. And he did not appreciate her.

  17. Dandun says:

    im just not buying this story! i find it hard to believe that Camilla can talk of nothing else but a fart, there really isnt that much to say about a fart. Also she seems to have more sense diplomatically to be running around telling everybody about it.

    this seems like a planted story to me to gain traction in America that Biden did not impress the royal family and embarrassed America on the world stage. my money is on a republican plant being the source

    • swirlmamad says:

      The funny thing is if they were trying to make Biden look bad with this, they failed miserably. Is that the best they could do?!? Everyone else involved that was gossiping or laughing about it sounds like a childish buffoon.

    • MaryContrary says:

      And let’s consider the source: the Daily Mail.

    • Betsy says:

      That’s kind of how it strikes me, too. Isn’t one of Camilla’s big strengths supposed to be that she’s kind of earthy, that a pass gas would go unremarked?

      Given how many right wingers share the same politics around the world… made up/exaggerated stuff. For example, by some of the courtiers who don’t care for Camilla’s alleged power moves against them. Two birds, one stone – mocking Joe Biden and getting a hit in on Camilla.

    • Smh says:

      And the thing is this gained no traction in the US. All the top stories about Biden are about policy stuff. Just the Ny post shows up with this fart story. Ridiculous!
      The fact that this was bigger news in the Uk tells you everything. So stupid.
      And I def believe Camilla said something because this isn’t something you just make up. Whether or not she expected it to be on the daily mail is another story but her family is very connected to DM so she could have gotten rid of it if she wanted. Just my thoughts

    • Lurker25 says:

      @dandun watch the video and see if you still don’t believe it. As @Hindulovegod said they’re trashy:

      Video is of C&C trying to hide smirks, giggles, breaking down into barely hidden guffawing right in front of a Inuit throat singing demonstration. They clearly thought the whole thing was ludicrous. The entitlement and lack of self control to mock these indigenous performers to their faces! You can’t unsee it. It’s EXACTLY like Kate thinking eating bugs to be gross, weird, hilarious. They’re all this tacky and juvenile.

  18. Lady Digby says:

    Has the gas story escaped to make Kate look classy?
    Maybe given the way Big Will grimaces around her , does fragrant Kate blow off constantly?

    • Nic919 says:

      It is such a dumb story and it sounds like a courtier with an axe to grind against Camilla went to the DM.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      I’m content assigning blame to Will & Kate. W & K + “invisible contract” = malodorous story about someone else. Or placing blame on someone else. It’s not a stretch to think talking about President Biden farting would be above Kate. She would think that was funny along with showing people dead larvae.

  19. Sue says:

    Because Camilla never farts. The royal family’s poop smells like roses, don’t ya know?

  20. OriginalLala says:

    Between Kate shoving larvae in people’s faces and Camilla talking non-stop about farts, the BRF looks like *such* a classy bunch of assh*les.

    • Tessa says:

      I wonder if Kate and Camilla do this as a sort of passive aggression. Although Camilla can retreat to her home in Raymill much of the time.

  21. Songs (Or it didnt happen) says:

    Now they’ll just need to figure out how to blame Meghan for it.

  22. Cathy says:

    Camilla told?

    Or is it the Daily Fail shxt stirring again and either making stuff up or enlarging on a rumour?

    Either way I detect a whole bunch of bull poo

    • iconoclast59 says:

      Thank you, @Cathy. This has Russian fingerprints all over it. Putin would love to undercut Biden’s appearance at COP, and the BRF makes a good stooge, because it’s well-known that they’ll neither confirm nor deny many rumors, especially one so intimate as this. Biden gets smeared, and the BRF gets smeared by insulted Americans. Win-win. I see you, Vladimir!

  23. MegJ says:

    How classy of her to gossip to everyone about it. /sarcasm

  24. Eurydice says:

    Yes, indeed. The “Fab Four” will save the monarchy.

  25. Maria says:

    I think Camilla is saying this because there was no dog to blame it on.

    Private joke from her, ok. Daily Mail story, vulgar and gross. Yes, I’m going to bring up the tampon story too. Yech.

    • Miranda says:

      They probably blame their farts on Meghan, not the dog. If not her, the nearest American will apparently do.

  26. swirlmamad says:

    Don’t mind me over here shaking my head…..God forbid the black duchess sneezes but THIS is considered “classy royaling”? The future queen consort gossiping about people farting???? GTFOH.

  27. Cessily says:

    Best commentary I’ve read in awhile.. what a way to start a Monday laughing at flatulence.

    I guess this is why Twitter is full of *picker photos showing the true class of Royal aristocracy. Camilla really is a disgrace no matter who tries to put a shine on her.

  28. Red Weather Tiger says:

    If she and Chuckles didn’t want this story out there and attached to her, it wouldn’t be, so.

    Camilla is just ugly from every angle. Chuck’s decades of work to make her out to be some harmless, amusing lush have all gone for naught.

    • SnoodleDumpling says:

      Eh, I can see it being a compromise. I wouldn’t be surprised if worse was said and done and this is the story that is allowed to come out. Charles, William, and Kate can’t really take anymore hits right now. Camilla is the only senior royal left who would be allowed to take such a hit, and since those four are the only ones who went to the event…

  29. Miranda says:

    Old people fart a lot. Horses fart a lot. Can you imagine how much an old horse like Camilla must fart?

  30. Merricat says:

    Sour grapes from the royal family. That’s all they serve these days.

  31. FancyPants says:

    What’s so bad about farts? Sure, they might stink, but that’s temporary, and they don’t spread germs like coughing and sneezing. You know who else farted today? Beyoncé. Adele. Paul Rudd. Normalize flatulence!

  32. ML says:

    Was this story actually an attack on Camilla? I mean, yeah, Biden farting isn’t chic, but as noted, it isn’t exactly classy to accuse someone of farting in the news. And as expected, by making this public Camilla’s history has come back to haunt her (and Charles as well). In no way does this “news” really benefit her and she’s just been given an upgrade in the RF as a Counselor of State.

    • Betsy says:

      That’s my take.

      Given how much we know the royal press lies, why do we take this story at face value?

      • Maria says:

        Well this story has been up for 2 days and nobody’s taken it down, so I’m going to have to assume the Palace is fine with it.

      • Betsy says:

        @Maria the palace never took down or addressed *every* ridiculous story. Kate’s “childhood scar” and her botox were the only ones I remember them addressing.

      • Maria says:

        No, but if there was one any of them would consider worth pulling, a headlining (in the UK) story about the future Queen making comments about the digestive issues of the President of the United States would probably be up there. So I think this was meant to be there, or they just don’t care to have it taken down. Both are repulsive, honestly.

    • Merricat says:

      Lol, Sophie strikes again!

    • Nic919 says:

      This is a contrast to the stories earlier last week of Camilla being made counsellor of state so I think someone made sure this story was given to the DM to bring her back down a bit.

    • dollycoa says:

      I suspect it was someone from the US Right trying to make Biden look bad for farting in front of Royalty, but instead they have made Camilla look bad for mocking a Head of State of another country and telling juvenile stories.

  33. @poppedbubble says:

    I am so immature. This post is a scatological gem!!! I laughed so hard!! Over and over. Once I hit post on this comment I’m going back to read it again!! 🦕🚼💨😆😆 More people need to fart in front of her and yes, Trump was worse!

  34. Athena says:

    There was a story last week about Camilla taking on more responsibility and possibly being name counselor of state and now this story. Camilla is not going to say this to a reporter, and her circle of friends have not gone to the press before, but I can see her telling Charles in front of maybe a family member, let’s say a step son or step daughter in law.
    Way to go UK, this is how to treat a guess in your country, the head of a country you need for your trade deals and tourism, and a proud Irish American.

    • Nic919 says:

      Did Camilla joke about his fart? Sure. Would she go to the DM that she was joking about it a lot. No. So someone heard her make the joke and spun it this way to the DM. Trying to make Biden look bad is a bonus for whoever went to the DM. Likely a former conservative lackey and courtier who wanted to divert attention away from the fact that the young royals did nothing of value at that conference.

  35. Jezz says:

    This is seriously obnoxious.

  36. Wadsworth the Butler says:

    A cynical view is that embarrassing Biden could just be a cheap and easy way for the royals to get back into the good graces of the right-wing tabloids after a few weeks of proselytizing on climate change.

  37. Miss Melissa says:

    Anyone ever pay attention to what air travel does to a bottle of water or a bag of chips?

    That is what it does to our intestines, too.

    He flew Washington to Rome and then Rome to Glasgow?

    She’d be gassy too.

  38. Hannah says:

    OMG! Such a non event. Elderly man farts! Agree with the commentator above who said ‘have a private giggle with Charles’ but to put it in the public domain is so gauche. Bad form Camilla!

  39. Mike says:

    Perhaps our President was simply expressing his lack of respect for Camilla and The Prince, But is it royal protocol to discuss the farts of the President of The United STates? Does not see like it would be helpful to relations between the countries

  40. Jan says:

    Now Dr Biden is the one to watch out for.
    Politics aside, the US is dealing with the EU first, Boris didn’t get any new deals when he met the President.

  41. Margaret says:

    Oh come who benefits because of this leak?. Classless kate gets drags over larva, so let’s leak and bring up Camilla. Listen I dislike Camilla, I think she is a snake, but strange she gets to carry on one of petty Bettys’ events, and this gets leaked. I tell you I smell cambridges/ wessexes, think about it. The dirty foursome, also Louise being pushed.

  42. Concern Fae says:

    Best tweet I saw was about Diana smiling in heaven because Camilla got farted on.

    But this story really can’t be separated from the fact that the Tories are having fits because Irishman Joe Biden refuses to rubberstamp Brexit and insists that the Black Friday Accords be honored. This means no hard border between Ireland and Northern Ireland. The racist assholes who dreamt up Brexit never considered the Irish or that their situation mattered at all. But it does, and Biden knows it. And, yes, racist is an accurate description for British/Scottish attitudes towards the Irish. Not all, but probably the same proportion of racist white Americans.

  43. Rapunzel says:

    I’m going with “she who smelt it dealt it.”

    I think Cammy farted, and was telling folks it was Biden because she was embarrassed.

  44. Keri says:

    This is how they go about courting the US for a much needed trade deal? By trying to embarrass the US President? How is it possible that the often sloshed Camilla, thinks it’s a good look considering her own embarrassing public history? How dumb are these people? There are rocks out there that are more sentient.

    Charles and Willie – There is something seriously wrong with their pickers. I’d sympathize but then remember they brought it all on themselves.

  45. S808 says:

    Is there nothing else going on at that conference? how is this a major headline?

    • Original Penguin says:

      It’s planted to distract from the major corruption scandal that’s happening. Will’s friends are also friends of the corrupt tories who need the distractions.

    • Lady D says:

      I saw President Obama on the news this morning. He was speaking at COP26, probably yesterday? It might have been today, the UK is eight hours ahead of me.

  46. MangoAngelesque says:

    Is Camilla vulgar enough to snicker with Anne about it over Joe’s shoulder? Absolutely. But to go around like a gossiping hummingbird telling everyone who will listen, including the DM, guffawing about it, especially at this juncture in her and Charles’ positions? No way.

    Charles must be seething. He’s been spending capital on his own embiggening and ladyfying of Camilla in the press for something crude and trashy like this to come out.

    Americans will be offended, sure, and all the Piers Morgan types will find a way to bring it around to Harry and Meghan, but in the aristo circles and the society set, it’s reading Camilla for trash.

    • Same says:

      Are Americans really going to be offended ? Seriously. I find the whole thing funny AF — it’s a fart, we all do it , we have probably all laughed inappropriately more than once and no one believes Ole Cams called up a reporter to put this front page.
      What is astonishing is the performative outrage .

      • Haylie says:

        We’ve been told for years that the royals “never put a foot wrong” and must follow strict protocols to avoid diplomacy errors. And that’s why Meghan is a monster for closing her own door, wearing black, not covering her shoulders, etc. So that was all a lie.

        No, Americans aren’t getting bent out of shape over this, but I definitely enjoy Royal’s hypocrisy and bullshit being thrown back in their faces.

  47. TeamMeg says:

    What a horrid woman.

  48. Annabel says:

    With respect, I find stories like this kind of ableist. It’s not that I’m grossed out by bodily functions, it’s just that I know someone with advanced MS who has limited control of their bodily functions at this point. Not having control of your body isn’t actually all that funny.

  49. Cherriepie84 says:

    Oh, look! The #unroyalfamily running to the Daily Fail yet again.

  50. nicegirl says:

    I love your writing so much, this is hilariously fabulous

  51. Kit says:

    Saw this on de DM , Tampon Camny what!!!!!! But said to myself how low can this rag go, l mean this is a journalist prob with a degree, that wrote this piece 4 /5 years in Uni for this????? , seriously who reads this sh.t, today it’s France is jealous of Brexit , WTF !!!!

  52. What says:

    I think everyone is missing the point. The source is daily mail and they love to try and make a story where there’s none. They’re trying to fill the time cause they’ll be out in force with Harry and Meghan set to make appearances this week. For the lady living in Britain. Let’s leave you with this

    Even if he did pass gas I’d rather smell a fart that will pass over time than to look at and smell the royals breath. With everyone with the exception of Catherine that has yellow and brown teeth. And she still mumbles.

    • smarmyo says:

      @what , this is made-up DM, trying to start their own “Let’s Go Brandon” meme for the right-wing in the UK. Interesting that they’ve pinned it on Camilla to make her look crude.

      • SnoodleDumpling says:

        Well, Camilla is in the middle of a power struggle with Charles’s favorite unsavory minion, Michael Fawcett, so a bit of a press campaign against her is to be expected.

      • Shawna says:

        @SnoodleDumpling – well spotted! I was trying to think who really does have it out for Cams right now.

      • Tessa says:

        Charles made it clear ages ago Fawcett is non negotiable. Charles apparently trusts Fawcett and allows him major responsibilities like planning events and there is talk he will be a key player in the Coronation plans. Camilla can’t get him out, no way.

  53. Ameerah says:

    Even if he did fart why the hell is she telling the press about it?? And we are supposed to believe these inbred aristocrats are Diplomatic experts? Lol

  54. Well Wisher says:

    There is one certainty, if one does not pass gas, death ensues.

  55. paranormalgirl says:

    Well isn’t she just a mature and sophisticated person? Does she require reminding that her husband wanted to be her tampon?

  56. Jay says:

    Duchess, my people have a saying about this: “You smelt it, you dealt it”😉

    Seriously though, THIS was Camilla’s big takeaway from a conference about the devastating climate disaster?

    Between this and Katy Keen shoving bugs in people’s faces like something out of fear factor, I’m wondering if it was actually a worthwhile use of British taxpayer funds to fly these royals to the conference. They don’t really seem to have added or taken away much of any use.

  57. Gubbinal says:

    My mother told me 65 years ago that older people fart “all the time” and it must absolutely be ignored. Don’t flinch, don’t comment, don’t act as if anything happened.

    It was great advice but I spent many years of my childhood and youth wondering when the farting would set in. I suspect that she was preemptively trying to protect her father. I wonder if Camilla’s farting has set in big time and it’s on her mind?

  58. Lucylee says:

    Sitting here reading this article and farting to my heart’s delight.

  59. Same says:

    You’d think this is going to be the downfall of the British Empire by reading this thread … the fart heard around the world !!! 😂😂😂

  60. House of No says:

    Who’s worse: A man that farted or a woman that aided in the dysfunction and ending of a marriage?

    It’s your call, folks.

  61. Lila says:

    How is this a thing?

    Although now I hope Joe went full Monty Python and the Holy Grail and started loudly insulting in a fake French accent as he was doing it…

  62. bobafelty says:

    I didn’t know a tampon could be offended by a fart?

  63. dido says:

    The more I follow royal news (and unfortunately, the more I see commenters on Cambrirdge accounts), the more I realize they’re almost all Biden haters/Trump lovers.

    • Same says:

      Serious question … what is a Cambridge account that has comments? Is it another blog like this one ?
      I read CB and the D (and they snark literally everyone ) .

      Full disclosure , I don’t Stan any of them and I don’t loathe any of them either . I also really envy the Queens hat and brooch collection. And Trump is an idiot …

  64. Duchess of Corolla says:

    Oh ffs, this is such a ridiculous story. Everyone farts. Sometimes it happens at an inopportune moment. The repubs don’t need nonsense like this to set them off, never mind their orange overlord probably makes enough methane to launch himself into space, what with all the fast food he eats. To me, this is just non-news that will serve to distract from the real issues.

  65. Likeyoucare says:

    For those who are saying this story is nothing burger…

    Imagine, Dr Jill Biden let it be known to the newspaper and gosipping outloud that the queen fart and smelt so horrid during international meet and greet.

    Soft diplomacy my farted ass. Camilla has no class.

  66. Gab says:


  67. Athena says:

    1. Jill Biden, is a class act. She could have said a lot after the fiasco of a meeting with Mumbles, Duchess of Cambridge but did not. That is diplomacy, that’s class.

    2. The British Royals can kiss goodbye any possible state visit. As a matter of fact, if I were the Bidens I would invite every royal head of state to visit except for the British.

    • Linda says:

      You obviously do not understand how diplomacy or international relations work if you think this will deter any of the people involved from a state visit.

  68. Detnow359 says:

    I’m sorry but every time, and I mean every time her name comes up I think of Charles and her tampons. Charles’ comments were much worst than someone passing gas. She’s so crass

  69. Julie says:

    Camilla, the biggest fart in the room?

    That because of you, and Charles, Diana isn’t enjoying her grandchildren. Your repugnant behavior, and Charles inability to put country over his base instincts, are the reason she’s dead, and you, Camilla, are classless.


  70. Isa says:

    I thought Camilla would have more class by now. At nearly 80, flatulence happens as your muscles weaken and aren’t able to hold it in. Especially when you’re changing positions and/or walking. People are usually embarrassed and I tell them it doesn’t matter, because it doesn’t.

  71. Slippers4 life says:

    Good! I hope he DID fart in her racist presence. We should all fart at the entire RF to let them know what we think!

  72. Haylie says:

    So are they still planning to send Will and Kate over for the 2nd Annual Earthflop Awards and to do a “Real Royal Tour?”

  73. L4Frimaire says:

    This woman is an embarrassment. She’ll never measure up to Diana. They’re all so basic and this was just stupid. Of course now they’re back to attacking Harry for having a production deal with Netflix because of the Crown.

    • Tessa says:

      CHarles forced the issue naming her as his mistress. He might have remarried another woman . And she may have stayed with Parker Bowles. Her father confronted Charles and asked what he was going to do now that he named her. Charles should just stop pushing her out there, the more a low profile for her the better. Though he is not much better, considering the way he treated Harry and Meghan.

  74. khaveman says:

    Um. Get over it. And who cares.

  75. khaveman says:

    So she still slept with Charles when he was married to Diana, right? Yeah, can’t take her seriously.

  76. Ann says:

    Better a farter than a cheater.

  77. blunt talker says:

    A man by the name of Amol Rajan will be having a documentary on the younger royals later this month-The brits don’t like him because has said things about the monarchy is absurd-Kate is lovely but has bad moods and bad breath sometimes and look like she is hung at times-I plan to look up other things he said and written-Just curious.

  78. Colleen says:

    omggg I farted during Pure Barre yesterday and it was so loud that for a good 5 minutes, I couldn’t focus on anything other than hoping the music was too loud for the two women around me to hear – and I’m 37! It happens, who cares?

  79. JJ says:

    How tacky! My 6 year old knows better than to talk about other peoples “toots”, so rude!

  80. Robin Samuels says:

    I wouldn’t doubt that the Duchess of Cornwall shared that info with Tominey, but why was it necessary to make it an article? Lately, Tominey has taken low shots at the RF, especially Kate and even Boris Johnson. Something is afoot between the Royal Reporters and the Royal family. Duchess of Cornwall must be embarrassed that Tominey wrote the article but, she must uphold the family mantra: never complain, never explain. Duchess of Cornwall has been a reliable leak in the past, why expose her now?

  81. Southern Fried says:

    On brand for Camilla. I credit that woman not one scrap of decency. Her treatment of Diana was monstrous. She was most likely the type of woman who tried to alienate the boys from their father. It does happen. There really are such horrible people that do that.

  82. NomNom says:

    Isn’t her husband known for wanting to become a tampon in his next life? There’s funnier things to laugh about, Camilla. Just sayin!

  83. K says:

    If the worst thing she can say about him is that he farted, he’s doing a fabulous job compared with the monster who came before. He probably did fart that day, cause guess what… so did Camilla and so did you and I.

    I read once that the average person passes gas 14+ times a day. That sounded nuts to me when I read it, but I guess often we don’t really notice if there’s no smell or sound or we just sleep right through it.

  84. M says:

    What gets me is how many of you believe that Camilla is the one really talking about this, I think most of you are having brain farts. The media will do anything and say anything to sell papers.

  85. Elf says:

    Lmao I don’t know that to do with this story but this family is so unnecessary. Wasn’t the royals supposed to be perfect diplomats? What kind of diplomacy is that? Going to the press to say that president farted? Come on Camilla… I’m everyday more convinced that Meghan was too good for that family.

  86. RoyalBlue says:

    Camilla is a vile and vulgar woman.

  87. Yekimi says:

    If I had a dollar for everytime I’ve farted, I’d be richer than Elon Musk.
