The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge’s silence on Meghan’s victory is the message


The Duchess of Cambridge stepped out yesterday to view an exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum. The event was tightly controlled, just judging by the photos and reporting. I’m not even sure the Royal Rota was told in advance that Kate would be making this outing, and there were no photos (that I saw) of Kate entering or leaving the museum. Just a handful of shots inside the museum of Kate wearing a mask and looking at Faberge eggs. My point is that at no point was Kate in the position of being asked any questions about Meghan and Harry, or Meghan’s second legal victory, the news of which had broken just before Kate’s museum visit. Kate issued no statements other than the social media posts declaring a keenness for eggs. Perhaps the absence of a message is the message, huh? So says Liam Gilliver, a Daily Mirror opinion writer, who wrote this column: “Kate and William’s silence on Meghan Markle’s privacy win speaks volumes.”

“These harmful practices don’t happen once in a blue moon – they are a daily fail that divides us, and we all deserve better,” Meghan wrote. Aside from the hilarious swipe at the sued publication, Meghan’s statement is pretty poignant. Even if you don’t like her, you’ve got to admit she’s right on this one.

But awkwardly twiddling their thumbs and staying silent is none other than fellow royals, Kate Middleton and Prince William. Around an hour after the news broke, the Duke of Duchess of Cambridge posted a thread on Twitter to their 2.3 million followers. But instead of words of support for their own brother and sister-in-law, the couple decided to post about… Fabergé eggs.

Now if my relatives were being hounded I’d be pretty upset for them.

It doesn’t help the suspicion that Kate and William never really cared that Meghan was receiving vitriol and invasive comments from social media on a daily basis – or how that impacted her mental health and ability to stay close to the monarchy. Because even though they were not part of that system, Kate and William certainly benefited from it.

The more people disliked Meghan and Harry, the shinier Kate and William were perceived. The more criticism Meghan got, the more invisible Kate became. If Meghan’s outfit was ill-fitting and unoriginal, Kate’s was elegant and stunning.

And as pessimistic as this may seem, the Cambridges don’t really seem to mind. Or at least, nothing in their actions say they do.

I mean, seriously. Fabergé eggs? Get a backbone and stand up for what’s right.

[From The Daily Mirror]

Seriously though, just think about how this would have gone if William and Kate actually gave a sh-t about Harry, Meghan, Archie and Lili Diana. I mean, if the Cambridges actually gave a sh-t, they never would have authorized Jason Knauf to hand over Meghan’s emails and texts to the Mail’s lawyers in the first place. They also never would have orchestrated a smear campaign on a pregnant woman in 2018, a campaign which continues to this day. This entire time, William and Kate have shown us who they are through their lack of action and lack of words. Their silence is their message. They’re not happy for Meghan. They’re mad that she won again. And I bet they’re planning something extra-unhinged for the Mail’s appeal to the Supreme Court.

    While it’s nice now that peasants (such as myself) can view Faberge eggs that’s not who they were originally for. Whose bright idea was this social media post? Please, get them matching “ I don’t really care do you” coats….

    • DuchessL says:

      The Cambridges are so stupid. Their silence speaks volume and when they do speak up: faberge eggs. Like wtf. I hope kkkhate never represent a group for empowering women, how could she.

    • Andrew's Nemesis says:

      The people for whom these were made ended up at the bottom of a mineshaft. I’m sure that Wiglets doesn’t see the irony, though, given that she queried whether new ones were being created…

      • GuestWho says:

        Lest we forget that the people who ended up at the bottom of the mine shaft were relatives of the UK Crown who couldn’t be helped to escape because it would look bad. Uncaring scum then; uncaring scum now.

      • Jay says:

        Oof, I hadn’t even picked up on that connection. Yikes.

      • Chrissy (The Original) says:

        She probably doesn’t even know how or why the Romanovs ended up in that mine shaft. She’s that incurious.

      • EllenOlenska says:

        Yes, she’s peering into her own future at the rate they’re going with these tone deaf social moments…

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Chrissy (The Original), yes she is. She would respond by asking after the history is explained to her time and time again, but why? Why did they end up in a mineshaft? Why now?…..

      • Nic919 says:

        I guarantee that Kate has no idea who the Romanovs were nor the fact they were cousins to the current queen. This is not a woman who has demonstrated any type of intelligence when it comes to history, current events, basically anything with substance.

  2. Chloe says:

    Im surprised they had the guts to even publish this.

    As for them speaking out regarding this legal victory: there’s literally no need for them to do it. If they wanted to be supportive of meghan the time would have been 2018.

    • Mac says:

      If they spoke out in support of Meghan they would be accused of being the hypocrites they are.

    • jo73c says:

      What world is this that the Mirror is the voice of reason?

      • equality says:

        Opinion piece by 1 writer. Surprised it passed editing though. Is the mirror just both-siding the issue or actually growing some backbone?

      • MipMip says:

        It’s not that surprising that this piece showed up in the Mirror. While the Mirror is a Murdoch rag, it is the “liberal” one.

        There are two heavy hitters in the UK tabloids: Murdoch and Lord Rothemere. His main competitor, the DM and LR, just sh*t the bed and Murdoch is no fool. He sees that public opinion is changing after this year- Brexit and the Tory government are a disaster and that’s hard to ignore for citizens who have no heat and electricity due to their ineptitude. Then there’s the royals- Maxwell’s trial is in the news and Charles cash-for-honors stuff is still in the news cycle. If I were the average Brit, I’d be mad at everyone in charge- from the Government to the RF.

        Murdoch knows that and he’s safely testing the waters here with an opinion piece in his “liberal” tabloid.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @MipMip, Murdoch doesn’t own the Mirror. That’s owned by Reach Plc. Murdoch considers Fox News his crown jewel. I don’t see him willing to test those belief waters anywhere/anytime soon. 5 paragraphs down Reach Plc comes up.

        That top picture of Kate reminds me of the scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark after the one villain opened the Ark.

  3. Jessica says:

    When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time.

    • what's inside says:

      Always. The silence on this matter from the RF, particularly the Cambridges, is deafening.

    • TeamMeg says:

      Yes, the Keenbridge silence speaks volumes. Meanwhile, can’t get over how sad Kate looks, gazing at those depressing eggs with mournful eyes. No amount of cheerful blush can hide the sadness. A sorry lot, those losers. Meghan wins, and winner takes all.

  4. Harla says:

    Wait! Was this actually published in a British newspaper? This is the most sane and pro-Meghan opinion I’ve ever seen in a British newspaper. Is the sky falling? Are pigs flying? Is it the End???

    • Moderatelywealthy says:

      This is a sane, rational, common sense analysis- I am speechless for once!

    • Eurydice says:

      I hear in the distance the hoofbeats of the Apocalypse.

    • Amy Too says:

      And such an example of how the British press will never say a mean or critical thing about the Cambridges ever again for fear of alienating them, right? Oh wait, it’s the opposite of that? Hmmm, seems like the other article was pure make believe then, and the press *is* going to turn on the Cambridges and demand their pound of flesh from them.

    • February-Pisces says:

      I can’t believe the Daily Mirror actually wrote this. They are pure trash like The Sun and Daily Fail so I’m shocked. Obviously theses an agenda. I think seeing the fail lose their appeal probably made them realise that Willie and keen will never properly step up to the plate.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I am surprised as well! Murdock should die a man with no heirs, or at least the one that has followed his father to the dark side of evil. The money he makes off of the misery of others should be illegal. He must be an ugly, heartless and soulless man.

  5. BayTampaBay says:

    That Ralph Lauren blouse just gets uglier each time I view it.

    • Everybody keeps talking about the dress, but I am way more distracted by those eyebrows and overly botoxed forehead.

    • swirlmamad says:

      It’s because of the body inside it. Everything she touches turns to ash. She ruins everything she wears because her nastiness seeps from her pores.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      Welcome BayTampaBay! is it fugly yet?

    • terra says:

      It is hideous, isn’t it? I wonder if there is an outfit of Diana that’s she’s attempting – and failing – to emulate. Either way, paisley is never a good choice.

    • Demi says:

      Despite kate being a nasty woman, I actually like what she wears most of the time .. this is the first time I saw her wearing something that ugly.. girl this someone’s great grandmother would wear back in the day..

    • yinyang says:

      She’s dressed like my mom in the eighties, like literally.

      • VoominVava says:

        Totally! My Grade 6 (1986) Environmental Studies teacher had a different colour / pattern of this blouse for every day of the week. They were so old fashioned then!!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, that blouse is awful!! But I can assure you that Keen Stalker is probably in hysterics for the past TWO days as none of her photos have been touched up, so we are seeing the real version of her face. I bet she is outside screaming and stomping around the tennis courts smoking as she is crying to her mother how they did HER dirty and didn’t photoshop her!!! I can see it now!!! She is out there for hours upon hours!!!

      “Mummy, how could they do that to me, TO ME!!!! I am the FFQ FFS!!!”

      “Mummy, you have to fix it, fix it NOW!!!”…… “NO, it can’t wait until Monday!!!!”…….”Why do you have to see Pippa? I am the FFQ for gods sake!!”…..”Pippa, Pippa, Pippa, that’s all you care about!!

  6. Andrew's Nemesis says:

    We need much more leftwing commentary like this to counterbalance the 1950s Rule Britannia nonsense the Brexiteer Tories come out with.

  7. Seaflower says:

    So what happens when W&K escalating hate campaign invariably falls apart and they are exposed in a way that can not be refuted (tabs showing evidence or JoKe turning on them if hes not protected)?

    • Em says:

      I don’t know if they will ever be exposed, but the hatred will get boring and the over the to sycophancy will get exhausting in the eyes of the average people. Even my family members who don’t know anything about the royals roll their eyes at articles they see praising keen for stuff like “recycling dresses”. William and Kate will learn that just because you can successfully get people to hate your brother and his wife doesn’t mean they will automatically begin to like you.

      • Seaflower says:

        Good point.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        It is stupid to want to be seen as “perfect”. It is a dumb PR strategy because people generally react poorly to people who present themselves as perfect people with perfect lives. But I suspect that their insistence on an image of perfection is rooted in their psychological make-up (in Kate’s insecurity and in William’s entitlement).

      • Becks1 says:

        Yeah, perfect is boring. Perfect isn’t fun. You can’t relate to perfect.

        the Queen isn’t perfect and for all she’s on a global pedestal, and no one criticizes her, we still get enough stories about her that we all know she’s not perfect, and that does nothing to diminish her global pedestal standing.

        Michelle Obama isn’t perfect, and people adore her. I would say that for many, we adore her because she’s not perfect, because we both want to be like her but also relate to her for her flaws.

        Do people need to relate to royalty? a century or so ago, probably not. But times are different and since so much of the royals’ lives are based on what sells papers – perfect does not. Perfect gets you a classroom full of students who cannot wait for you to leave.

      • Emma says:

        The queen isn’t perfect meaning she protects her rapist son and the racism in her own household. Michelle Obama isn’t perfect meaning what, her husband wore a tan suit or mentioned a fancy mustard one time? Her daughter smoked in public one time?

        Come on, what’s this comparison? Michelle Obama isn’t a wannabe white power imperialist leftover.

      • teecee says:

        @Emma Exactly. Michelle Obama is an accomplished woman. Elizabeth just came out of the right vagina at the right time. Don’t compare the two.

      • @Beckys1 says:

        @Emma *eyeroll*

        I was talking generally about public personas and what is appealing. Saying Michelle Obama isn’t perfect doesn’t have anything to do with her husband wearing a tan suit and that’s a stupid takeaway from it, to be honest. do we really think Michelle Obama is without flaws? That she’s perfect? because no one is and I think part of her is appeal is her ability to reach people on that level. She doesn’t need people to think that she’s perfect.

        Kate, on the other hand, seems to need people to think she is perfect and she’s flawless and that’s boring.

    • Chloe says:

      @seaflower: i doubt william and kate will ever be exposed but i do think that william is increasingly getting worried about the fact that his fingerprints are all over the sussexit debacle. Despite his cheerleaders always claiming to have rock solid sources from HIS household.

      • Seaflower says:

        So he should, the media now have so much on him over this, they have him by the short and curlies for the rest of his life.

      • notasugarhere says:

        W&K’s role might be exposed through the bullying lawsuit clapback. We already have proof of a payoff for info about Harry/Meghan through the boyfriend of a W&K staffer. Other money trails leading to Knauf (over sperm donors behavior and interview), may follow. Don’t forget, sperm donor admitted publicly he was paid to interfere with the wedding, possibly paid by royals or royal staffers.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        “the short and curlies”

        I’ve never heard that before and you should have heard me SNORTLAUGH. hahahahaha!

      • L84Tea says:

        They are so going to rue the day that they decided to bring that bullying investigation out. M’s lawyers are going to chew them up and spit them out. I agree that that is the investigation that’s going to release all the skeletons out of the closet.

      • equality says:

        As somebody on Twitter pointed out they have already concluded their investigation into Fawcett and selling access to Charles but they can’t wrap up an investigation about bullying with the witnesses supposedly already all lined up?

      • Tessa says:

        I doubt Fawcett will ever be fired by the Prince of Wales.

      • SnoodleDumpling says:

        Oh, @Tessa, no, Fawcett’s been fired by Charles LOADS of times! Like, at least three or four already.

        He just also keeps re-hiring him in different positions because it’s always a purely symbolic ‘here is your scapegoat, peasants’ firing whereby Charles hopes to siphon off public negativity towards himself for his own misdeeds and direct it towards Fawcett.

        The main problem with this kind of plan is that Charles is an idiot and keeps re-using the same scapegoat, which, like, sure environmentalism is great and all but an effective scapegoat is a single-use item, like a wet wipe.

  8. Sofia says:

    The Cambridges posted their message already. It was when they allowed Jason to help the Fail against Meghan and hand over emails and texts.

  9. Indiesr says:

    This speaks volumes! The world is watching and they are so out of touch to not even notice or care. If they even made one positive sentence in support of Megan & Harry, they would have not only be showing support but give most people a more positive outlook on the Royal family.

    • Nic919 says:

      William and Kate have never even uttered Meghan’s name in public nor have they said anything complimentary about her. Even Charles and Camilla made a few positive comments in public when the engagement was announced.

    • Alexandria says:

      They are too dense to realize HM are fighting to benefit their children. They are teaching their children and then grandchildren, to continue the invisible contract above all else, and that includes backstabbing each other and exposing each other to harm (by leaking locations for example). These 2 are beyond redemption.

      • notasugarhere says:

        W&K don’t want that type of benefit for their kids. They want all three of their kids to remain on the royal dole their entire lives. Not removing titles, not out working for a living. They want the younger two to play their roles as Andrew (Charlotte) and Edward/Anne (Unwanted #3). That’s how they are raising them and already referencing them in their public talk. They are raising those younger two to be pawns and scapegoats for the heir.

  10. Margaret says:

    When they let Jason out, woof, woof, they spoke.

    • Lady Digby says:

      Surprised Jason wasn’t by her side at this event to signal that he’s still their hand bag carrier. Good boy Jason, fetch some more evidence and this time make it relevant?!

  11. Em says:

    What’s with the blush in those pictures? Was she pulled from a clown show to do that engagement? Jeez

  12. Merricat says:

    William and Kate are pretty thoroughly awful people. Lip service for mental health and the early years while smearing your pregnant sister-in-law is gross.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yup. and I’m glad that someone at least in the tabloid press is calling them out.

    • Alexandria says:

      They won’t care about their children’s mental health. They didn’t care about inserting themselves into a dead woman’s vigil and saying nothing about the female crowd being arrested. They are scum who don’t care about family, what more the taxpayer.

  13. Nic919 says:

    Interesting that an article like this shows up in a UK tabloid. It’s stating the obvious, but there are few critical pieces in UK media about the Cambridges and their active participation in smearing their own sister in law and helping a tabloid that violated privacy and copyright law.

    • Becks1 says:

      I’m also seeing more pushback on Twitter and social media – and not just from the Sussex Squad. BBC had an article yesterday about how H&M made their money (apparently its an old article that got retweeted yesterday for some mysterious reason, who knows, we will certainly never know the truth behind that decision) and I scrolled through the first 50 or so responses and they were ALL some variation of “who cares?” “they earned it, now do the other royals” etc. And I clicked on a lot of those replies and they were not squaddies, not people with a lot of tweets about the royals, etc.

  14. ML says:

    I hadn’t seen this article, thanks for posting a much fairer reaction to yesterday’s verdict. I really love that LG focussed on KP’s lack of reaction and interpreted the silence.

  15. Jais says:

    They are, at this point, cartoon villains. Strait up evil. I’d say Boris and Natasha but those characters have more charisma and sex appeal than Will and Kate. Snow white’s stepmother? Kate’s just got such evil queen vibes at this point. She should lean into it. Would be the public persona closest to her true self.

    • Amy Too says:

      Could you imagine if she truly leaned in and started wearing the big dark cape with the huge collar in the back? Or Maleficient horns? Lean in, Kate! Lean in! At least her clothes wouldn’t be so boring and dowdy and 80s anymore. Less 1980s, more 1580s, please.

      • Jais says:

        It would be epic if she leaned into it, but seeing as her styling often misses the mark, she’d probably even ruin an evil queen look. No, Kate, the evil queen does not wear that many buttons. Put the button down!

    • WhoElse says:

      What? Please stop. Snow White’s stepmom was a dime. You hear me? A DIME. If she could have only gotten over all that insecurity, I’m sure some castle daddy would have wifed her up quick

  16. swirlmamad says:

    Who is this writer? I’m actually impressed by this — and in the Daily Mirror at that? William and Kate are SCUM. They are terrible, horrible, soulless people and it’s a damn shame that they are to be the face of the monarchy in the not-so-distant future. Some people are just morally bankrupt and there’s no hope for them. Good thing these two are bound and chained to each other for the foreseeable future because they should never be inflicted upon anyone else. God help their children but I don’t have much hope for those three growing up to be decent people, with those two as parents. Their only hope is if Nanny Maria has more influence over their day-to-day lives, as we suspect.

    • Nick G says:

      Meanwhile here in Canada a group of friends were talking the other night and someone brought up the fact that William’s face will be on our actual money relatively soon. Stunned, shocked silence.

      • swirlmamad says:

        My sympathies. That won’t be pleasant, as he either looks like he’s constipated or sucking a lemon in every photograph I see of him. Ugly inside and out.

      • Em says:

        Why don’t you guys make Elizabeth the last HOS? Keep her face on your money forever, it’s saves stress

      • notasugarhere says:

        Barbados dumped the Windsors, Canada can too.

      • Nick G says:

        The agreements between the Crown and First Nations make it more complicated, but yes, that is my fervent wish too.

      • Jaded says:

        @NOTA – I would be overjoyed if Canada could dump the Windsors but alas, it will not happen. It would be a hugely complicated task requiring individual referendums from each province and territory plus renegotiating 30+ individual treaties between the crown and our first nations peoples so, not in my lifetime unfortunately.

      • keroppi says:

        I hope it’s that picture that looks like he’s showing off his dental work.

      • yinyang says:

        I’m with you @nota, go republic!

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Jaded, would it be impossible to simply duplicate the treaties as they exist now? I know that’s a very simplistic view, but it would be a start. As far as getting the provinces and territories on board? I’m in the US and I know what it’s like trying to get enough states to vote for constitutional amendments.

        Maybe you could have a vote on keeping TQ on the money to honor her 70 years as monarch?

      • Nic919 says:

        Charles will end up on the money first and that has to spur some action. Canada has got to cut loose before Billy the tyrant acquires the throne.

      • notasugarhere says:

        It would be difficult, time consuming, and fraught at times, I’m sure. In the end, Canada would have to see they are better off without the Windsors and be willing to do the painstaking work of making it happen.

  17. LW says:

    Someone on IG said she dressed like a bus seat and now I can’t unsee it 😏

  18. ***Stevie*** says:

    I proper lookey lou needs to be taken at the justices on UK Supreme Court and the corresponding Appeals Court to see whose pockets they may be in. I’m certain the Mail on Sunday is doing as much right now.

    • Em says:

      Yes, Meghan is so powerful she has paid off all the British justices🙄

    • Eurydice says:

      Hmm, not sure what you’re saying here. Legal consensus seems to be that the courts stuck to legal precedent. If they had ruled against precedent, then that might be cause for investigation.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      The Duchess of Sussex didn’t make the laws that ANL/MoS blatantly broke.

      So let’s just spell out why it is not happening. The Mail on Sunday knowingly breached her rights of privacy and copyright – any journalism or law undergraduate could have told them that. The Duchess, as was her right, sued, and at that point it was up to the Mail on Sunday to justify what it had done.

      She was not on trial. The paper was, and it chose to defend itself by saying that she never intended her letter to be private. When the High Court reasonably asked ‘Can you prove that?’ the paper could not. When the Court of Appeal asked the same question the answer was the same.

      As the case proceeded it became ever clearer – and Glover confirms it today – that what the Mail really wanted was the spectacle of the Duchess in the witness box and the opportunity to bully her there. Now that it has discovered it does not have the power to make that happen, the paper is left frothing at the mouth with incoherent rage.

  19. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    At first I thought there’s so much SHADE in that article, I do believe I could sit under it and not get a sunburn
    But then after I reread it, there’s no shade at all. That was the shot across the bow that is so waaaaay past overdue
    Your move Cambridge

  20. Amy Bee says:

    According to the royalists, William and Kate had no involvement in this case and it was Jason alone who decided to testify against Meghan. Was I expecting a statement from KP? No, because they were part of the defence but I was expecting announcement on when Jason Knauf was officially stepping down as CEO of the Royal Foundation.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Knauf will never be fully gone, just as Christian Jones (of the paid-off leaking boyfriend fame) and Jamie Lowther-P of years gone by are never gone. They are kept around forever, rewarded for the attacks by being put on Foundation boards.

      • MF1 says:

        Jason knows too much. He has to be kept on the payroll. If he were ever fired, imagine how he could skewer W&K in the press.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @notasugahere: Yeah, I’m sure he will still be around as an advisor or will become a board member.

    • Nic919 says:

      Valentine Low and Duncan Lancombe are already out there stating that William wasn’t involved with Knauf releasing the texts. No one serious actually believes that though.

      • Becks1 says:

        If William didn’t approve it then Knauf would have been fired immediately, none of this “end of the year” business. We see you William.

      • swirlmamad says:

        It’s hilarious how they are so dense that they don’t realize the more he blathers on about his innocence, the more he incriminates himself.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      I am patiently waiting to hear they will be having an investigation into how a staff member could assist a defendant in a court case by providing emails that were not subpoenaed. I’ll wait.

    • Jaded says:

      Officially he’s stepping down at the end of the month but we all know that little cockroach is going to be carrying on his sleaze for the Cambridges in an unofficial capacity. He’s William’s lapdog.

  21. Gracie says:

    Good lord – those brows! Lighten up on the makeup as you age!

  22. ABritGuest says:

    this article still downplays fact that K+w’s current employee actually acted as a witness FOR the company that Meghan was suing. So of course they are silent (for now im sure the briefings are taking place & we’ll hear their thoughts by Sunday). A British newspaper analysing that fact in light of the Oprah interview will get my attention. Even so called republican press are so craven to the monarchy in this country.

    But yes the complete palace silence on Meghan’s win (which was similar to Charles’ against the MoS) is very interesting in contrast to the 3 palace statement against the BBC just last week. The palace couldn’t make it any more obvious how unsupported Meghan always was

    • Lady Digby says:

      Also highly embarrassing to release a statement stating WE don’t leak or others others to leak 3 weeks after Jason got up on his hind legs to collaborate openly with the Fail, unprecedented for a senior member of royal household to give evidence against a member of RF?! Jason hasn’t been suspended has he? That indicates approval and authorization from current boss! The public isn’t stupid and don’t accept Palace grand statements as the absolute truth. Only corgis don’t leak at the palace!

    • Nic919 says:

      The decision also states that Knauf’s texts in fact only confirmed that Meghan had an expectation of privacy for the letter because that’s what she stated in the texts. The irony that his actions helped her case when he was trying to help the tabloids win.

  23. Kit says:

    Hmmmmm after the BBC documentary will more journalists come out in support of de Sussex, you know l think they might , nice to read something positive and fair about Megan though !!!! Just viewed that school clip again, my God isn’t Katy so immature and childish this is what happens when you have a girl who just hasn’t got a clue and who is still in a child’s body , unbelievable to think she will be consort one day, shame !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Their silence is certainly not passive – the Cambridges not only upheld the power structures that hurt Meghan and reaped the benefits, but they actively encouraged and assisted the media in their harassment, including through leaks.

    The funny thing is the Cambridges continue to be totally unprepared for answering questions that most people would be ready for – remember how poorly Kate handled the question about whether or not they have seen baby Lili? Any professional media consultant should be coaching her on saying something bland about being glad in general about privacy being protected, but I doubt she’ll manage it.

    • Tessa says:

      Kate should just stop being rude and get an attitude adjustment. Learning what to say when asked about her niece or nephew would not IMO be enough. But I doubt she will change or learn a thing. Even if she is taught a “stock phrase” it would still come off as phony. IMO. Kate just cannot help herself. She never really had to fend for herself, she never had any full time work, her whole life was aimed at getting the ring and becoming Queen.

      • Nic919 says:

        Kate has a hard time hiding how much of a mean person she actually is when she has to deal with people who don’t kiss her ass. She is just as bad as the born in royals at this point.

  25. Kfg says:

    They look so dumb right now. Sending out knauf then that blew up in their faces. Now everyone knows they’re the leaks and they smeared M&H.

  26. Marivic says:

    Kate looks like she cried her eyes out. She is a lonely mechanical woman.

  27. Harper says:

    Imagine all the behind-the-scenes, smug conversations William and Kate and Jason had about Meghan going after the MOS. The absolute eye-rolling and guffawing they did at her expense, and the glee from their evil plotting to send Jason (The Stooge) Knauf off to the MOS legal eagles with his treasure trove of incriminating emails that would RUIN Meghan’s case. And imagine the incandescence that is going on behind the scenes this past week knowing they had failed and seeing those pap pics of the Burger King hit the press. It’s not going the way they planned.

    • Lady Digby says:

      Meghan referenced DECEPTION in yesterday’s statement which I understand as being assigned Jason and trusting him with top secret information only to be grossly deceived in his character and guise as work confidante. Instead the snake is working for Fail to gain favour with FK. Jason and Will and Kate deserve each other!

  28. Gk says:

    I am not a fan of MM, but dislike the Cambridge’s for being selfish and cruel which this shows them to be.

    • swirlmamad says:

      Why do you feel the need to proclaim in every single royal post today how “you’re not a fan of MM”? That’s your business if you want to buy into the BM’s lies about her, but we don’t do that here.

  29. Serena says:

    Their behavior is absolutely disgusting.

    They better start working on something instead of putting all their efforts on smearing Meghan in the press, because that’s gonna be their legacy.

  30. Jaded says:

    The tabloids are coming for the Cambridges next. Continuing to disparage Meghan is simply not working for them, and the gutter press needs fresh blood. What W&K thought was a win-win situation by quietly feeding the vultures didn’t work, in fact it ricocheted back on them. Their silence says it all, they’re scared.

    • Feeshalori says:

      Yes, they also hate to be put in the position of being losers each and every time they go up against Meghan, so they’ll go for the ones who need that good will and therefore most vulnerable. So, Cambridges, dust off those bull’s-eyes on your backs because the tabs will be in a feeding frenzy.

    • swirlmamad says:

      We can only hope. I have never wished for two people to get their just desserts more than Tweedledee and and Tweedledum over there (well, maybe Donald Trump edges them out, but just by a hair).

  31. aquarius64 says:

    Shots fired on this article. Bill and Kathy better watch their back.

  32. ARHUS says:

    cute she worked the “daily fail” into her message

  33. DeluxeDuckling says:

    I had never seen Fabergé eggs before yesterday, they are amazing! Too bad we were subjected to that awful blouse and shiny belt at the same time 😭 cool eggs, hideous fashion, radio silence. Clownery.

  34. Julia K says:

    The black mask and dark eye makeup appears to be an attempt to recreate the over the top posed funeral look,( the one with the inappropriate jewels and black dress).

  35. A says:

    For all the people who are saying that the British tabloid media is going to set their sights on the Cambridges next–honestly, I doubt it. I don’t see this happening, unless and until the Cambridges can be fashioned into a suitable “villain” for the tabloids to target. They need an enemy, someone to rile up the hounds against. They managed it with Charles bc the narrative slotted him into that position perfectly.

    But William and Kate are as bland as wallpaper paste. Unless one or the both of them do something truly insane, I can’t see them getting villainized. Heck, even Andrew assaulting an underaged teenage trafficking victim isn’t enough for these people to write about him with as much vitriol as they reserved for Meghan. And you know it’s not bc they can’t–you only need to see their coverage of sexual abuse scandals when it’s South Asian immigrants who are involved. But the moment it’s a white man, a white man who’s a member of the royal family at that, and there’s just radio silence.

    The only way I can see Will and Kate getting targeted by the press is if the British people actually realize that the way they behave and have behaved is appalling and atrocious. I don’t know when, or even if, it’ll actually happen tbh. They would need to be able to get outraged at the racism, misogyny and trampling of free speech William and Kate engage with on a regular basis. I think the only way people will get outraged is when William, once monarch, openly and unapologetically decides to stand in the way of some democratic process or another, in order to aid the rise of increasingly fascist policies in Britain. By that time, it’ll probably be too late.

    • Tessa says:

      On the surface they are “bland,” but they are on the inside, IMO calculating and not nice people. They have overpraise and big fans but I think some see through them. If William tries to openly turn on his father and put out more spin that he would be “better” as the next King, that might finally stir Charles up since HE is the one being targeted by William.

      • A says:

        I don’t think Charles has that skills or ability to craft that type of potent narrative. He’s really not good with that type of thing. His PR policy with Camilla was just to let her “be herself” and the world would eventually come to love her–and it worked until very recently. I think people give him way too much credit when it comes to planting stories in the press. His stories always have a very clear MO, and they’re ones where they usually portray him as a hapless put upon victim.

        On top of that, Charles is entirely “too woke” for the British establishment at the moment to really be on his side. That’s why they push William so hard. They think Charles is too soft bc of his focus on pluralism, the environment, etc., and they don’t want any of them.

        The BRF are set pieces in a much larger cultural war, which is the problem. Tabloid papers like the Fail want their readers to believe the world is “too woke” and “too politically correct”, and that the reason it’s like that is because of people like Charles and especially Meghan. Meghan is the figurehead they’ve placed at the helm of all of the stuff they really want to rail against, which is basically the fact that they’re asked to behave like decent human beings. They like William or Kate bc of what they choose to represent, which is essentially just white supremacy but with a polite veneer. As long as this is the problem, I really don’t think there’s anything William and Kate can do to turn the press or the public against them. It won’t happen until the political and cultural tide turns against them so that there’s an appetite for those stories, and I really don’t see that happening any time soon.

      • Nic919 says:

        Charles was able to rehabilitate Camilla who was deeply hated by the public after Diana’s death. Going after William would not be as hard.

    • Jaded says:

      What could really cause the BM to turn on the Lamebridges is if they stop feeding the beast. Bit by bit they’re going to run out of stuff to leak on the Sussexes because they keep their isht locked down. William’s ego is clearly so bloated that it may well make him think he doesn’t have to keep the quid pro quo “bargain” with the tabloids and ROTA rats. We all know how stupid he is at playing the media game and has continually shot himself in the foot PR-wise. They’d tear him apart like a pack of wolves given the right opportunity.

    • notasugarhere says:

      They’ve already started. More talk about William’s attempts to control the press, more whispers about his infidelities. The mocking of Kate being coddled through this art exhibit because she was dragged for her Meghan response when a *child* called her out. And there’s always dragging Ma Midds and Uncle Gary angles.

      The BBC stating flat out they passed on Kate’s christmas joke, the fake anti-BBC stance from the royals, the fact the BBC is still making money off it without caving to Windor demands? Lots of chickens coming home to roost.

  36. nina says:

    I can just imagine the conversations when they were deciding whether to publish the letter.
    DF editors chomping at the bit because the Royals never sue and PWT assuring them that Meghan will do what she is told. PWT and Lill Ass encouraging them to go ahead because Meghan will never sue. They must have shit bricks when she did sue.

    • Katya says:

      Catherine really looks ill. Karma is NOT a bitch but she’s real.

      • notasugarhere says:

        She looks like her usual bland, PR-hungry self in these pics. Brand new expensive blouse from a US designer, wearing Meghan-style black trousers. Posing in her child-size mask and heavy Diana-style eyeliner. This is the same copykate, PR-loving, cardboard cutout Kate we’ve seen for 20 years.

      • Nic919 says:

        She looks botoxed and calorie deprived, but that has been her look for the last few years. She could leave that family but she chooses to actively participate in the smears.

  37. ChattyCath says:

    Kate on the Romanovs being down a mineshaft ‘Really? How interesting’

  38. Monica says:

    As M&H keep winning and winning, in court and in life, the tabloids might just give up badgering them and turn to targets closer to home.

  39. Royalle says:

    I think everyone in the RF just wants this Jerry springer episode to end, who can blame them
