Tominey: Prince Harry has ‘upstaged the King’s European charm offensive’

Here are more photos of Prince Harry leaving the High Court in London on Monday. Several of the plaintiffs coordinated their appearances at the court hearing to bring international attention to the case against the Daily Mail. The Mail is scared sh-tless, if their lack of coverage is any indication. It’s not just the Mail either – Harry’s thriving, happy existence and this lawsuit represent an existential threat to the entire media landscape in Britain. Which is why people like Camilla Tominey are salty as hell. Harry suddenly appearing in London to thrash the media has them shaking in their boots. Tominey rage-typed a piece in the Telegraph about Harry’s visit and she accidentally reveals too much, including her own bitterness and Harry’s ability to overshadow his family whenever he wants. Some highlights:

Harry has torn the family apart!! “Smiling broadly, it was as if he had never been away – let alone written a bombshell autobiography that has torn the Royal family in two.”

Harry’s red carpet needs!! “Yet if Prince Harry expected the royal red carpet to be rolled out for his somewhat shock appearance at the High Court on Monday for the start of his case against Daily Mail publisher Associated Newspapers for unlawful information gathering, then he was sadly mistaken. No sooner had the Duke, 38, landed in London from Montecito, California, than his nearest and dearest had made their excuses for not seeing him.

King Charles the dogsh-t father: Despite France having postponed Monday’s visit by the King and Queen Consort due to ongoing pensions protests, Buckingham Palace apparently made it clear there would be no time for a meeting between father and prodigal son. Although he did inform the monarch that he would be in the neighbourhood, he was told his father was “busy” – despite having a last-minute, two-day gap in the royal diary. It is perhaps ironic that while Prince Harry is fighting the Daily Mail publisher in court, the King’s communications secretary is former Mail executive Tobyn Andreae.

Will & Kate were on another vacation! Meanwhile, his brother and sister-in-law, the Prince and Princess of Wales, would also be “out of town” due to Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis having already broken up for the Easter holidays. The former Cambridge clan like to escape to Anmer Hall, their Norfolk bolthole, at such times and it seems unlikely an invitation

Why did Harry alone time this date for the court hearing?? “While he can have had no control over the court date, had the father of two decided to attend in person believing his “dearest Papa” would be out of the country? Emmanuel Macron only pulled the plug on Paris on Friday, and the royal couple are still travelling to Germany for the second leg of the tour on Wednesday.

Whoops, what a thing to admit: “And had the tour to France gone ahead, were the Sussexes aware that Harry’s surprise High Court appearance would almost certainly have upstaged the King’s European charm offensive?”

Why is this Harry’s problem?? “The court case also comes amid speculation that Paul Dacre, Associated Newspapers’ editor-in-chief, is about to receive a peerage from former prime minister Boris Johnson.

Why does Harry have bodyguards if he’s so obsessed with privacy?? “Flanked by his own personal bodyguards, he appeared willing to risk a high-profile appearance – motivated, seemingly, by his undisguised hatred for the tabloid media (and his somewhat contradictory thirst for publicity, perhaps?). Had the Home Office struck a deal with the fifth in line to the throne for this particular trip?

No support for his trash family!!! “The Telegraph has been told the Duke flew over to show his “support” for the case, which has been brought by a group of celebrities including the singer Sir Elton John and his husband David Furnish, as well as the actresses Elizabeth Hurley and Sadie Frost. Baroness Lawrence and former Liberal Democrat MP Sir Simon Hughes also allege the newspaper group is guilty of unlawful information-gathering. Whether he will be minded to show similar “support” for his father and stepmother when they are crowned on May 6 remains to be seen.

[From The Telegraph]

I think Tominey was attempting to sound accusatory, bitter and angry towards Harry… but she ended up sounding so sad and she made the Windsors sound pathetic. She’s really arguing: how dare Harry appear in court, doesn’t he know he would have obviously overshadowed his father’s France visit, well at least his family is too lazy to see him! The mentions of Paul Dacre and Tobyn Andreae are fascinating too – once again, Tominey seems to be crying over Harry’s presence being awkward for… the family who keeps hiring Daily Mail people for their comms team? Not to mention the incredibly cozy relationship between the right-wing tabloids (the Mail especially) and the Tory Party? Oh, and the bitter tears about security too – you know all of their violence-inciting C-U-Next-Tuesdays hate the fact that Harry can fly into London with a full security detail and disappear again and they can’t do anything about it.

  1. Ummm… wasn’t France cancelled so Chuckles could not charm them? Harry upstaged nothing.

    • equality says:

      The French public upstaged him. Vive la France!

      • Whyforthelove says:

        I’m still sad that we missed out on seeing the flaming baguettes being tossed at Chucky sigh maybe next time.

      • Cha-cha slide says:

        C-Rex could be upstaged by the opening of an envelope.

      • Yvette says:

        @Whyforthelove … LOL! The flaming baguettes being tossed at C-Rex is a visual I’ll not soon forget. Thank you for the laugh … and the visual! 🙂

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        The British Media made an inkwell & pen upstage Charles on two different occasions. This is just foolishness. Hot Harry not riding up on horse to the courthouse (which would be f*cking awesome) with the blindsided BM is a thing of beauty.

        Love toasted/grilled baguettes. Even more if the flames are firing and are thrown at assholels.

    • ML says:


    • Sugarhere says:

      Besides, Charles and charm within the same sentence IS offensive to common sense. Ludicrous.

    • kelleybelle says:

      It’s always someone else’s fault, isn’t it? They f*ck up right, left and centre and it’s always someone else’s fault.

    • Lily says:

      Truly amazes me how ignorant people are if it’s not their culture.

    • Carmen says:

      “Charm offensive”?

      *Spits soda all over iPad*

      • Cara says:

        And despite that pathetic email “invitation”, Charles clearly does NOT want Harry at the coronation. All British parents should be outraged by the non-actions of this heartless little worm of an adulterous man they call king.

      • Carmen says:

        @Cara: of course he doesn’t want Harry at that clown show. Can you imagine if H & M were there? All eyes and cameras would be on them, and nobody would be paying any attention to Chuckmilla or Fumbles & Mumbles. Charles would be an afterthought at his own coronation.

  2. Emily_C says:

    He’s just going to a court case he’s involved in. It’s not like he’s rattling up in a gold carriage with a marching band and running around London in booty shorts and pasties. That his mere existence overshadows his crap family — well, that’s the fault of the tabloids and the family themselves.

  3. equality says:

    If you can fly to another country and do tours and state dinners but be upstaged by someone simply walking into a courtroom, what does that say for you? Sorry, but PH’s “nearest and dearest” aren’t snubbing him; they are at home in California probably video-chatting daily. I like how “the Sussexes” were supposed to think about the effect attending an event on a certain day would impact the RF, but KC isn’t supposed to consider how his actions like scheduling on Archie’s BD, will impact his son’s family.

    • SunnyDays says:

      This. This. A thousand times, THIS.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes!!! KC3 is showing the world that every action taken is to tell everyone how petty and vindicated he is. KC3 had 364 other days to choose from but he specifically chose Prince Archie’s forth birthday. 🙄

        No amount of unhinged, attention seeking hatred that Camel Toe writes will change the truth.

    • Debbie says:

      I also like how the writer says it remains to be seen whether Prince Harry will be minded to “show support” on May 6th for his father and stepmother. In other words, to show support for the man who couldn’t wait to tell the BM that he was “too busy” to see Harry (never mind that nowhere do they say Harry asked for an audience). Also, this is the man who hired the Daily Fail staff who’ve made his son’s family so miserable for years. And as for showing support for Camzilla, who said nothing when her friend wrote a demented, violent fantasy about stripping Meghan naked and parading her through the streets like she’d committed some crime in the Middle Ages. This woman writes all that without a hint of shame, or even a nodding acquaintance with irony.

      • Emily_C says:

        They didn’t do that in the Middle Ages, btw. Like pretty much everything in his books, it’s just a violent misogynistic fantasy GRRM had while deciding to lie and tell everyone he based it on real history. (When it’s not only a violent misogynistic fantasy, it’s a violent racist and misogynistic fantasy — the Dothraki are nothing, I mean NOTHING, like the peoples he lied and claimed to have based them on, or indeed like any people who have ever existed.)

    • Mtl.Ex.pat says:

      @equality – solid points all around!

    • Whyforthelove says:

      Exactly!!!!! 365 days in a year but scheduled it on his mixed race grandson’s birthday.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Perfect comment @equality.

      Harry shows up with no announcement ahead of time and expects a red carpet rolled out for him? MIMS. Stretch Armstrong Tominey is working overtime time with this bs piece. Determining her biggest lie here is challenging.

      I’m going with her one about the WanKs going to Anmer. It’s skiing or beaching for them via private jet.

  4. Lee says:

    This Tominey lady seems obsessive and demented, she needs to take a couple of seats, rubbish article

    • L84Tea says:

      Her and Angela Levin both fall into a completely weirdo obsessive subcategory of already unhinged reporters. I’m convinced Angela sleeps with a cardboard cutout figure of Harry, while Tominey stays up all night raging over Montecito weather websites.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        LOL @L84Tea. It’s hard to figure out who/which one is worse. The worst one, imo, is Levin. She earned money from a book on a false relationship/time spent with Harry and a maybe 5 minute interview with him. Pretty much everything she’s written about him was out there already. Plus, Levin got into the “moon bump” and Hewitt conspiracy theories. Don’t know if CT did. CT just lies for her paymasters and royalist position.

        The eiptaph on the RR’s tombstones should be, “I lied about Harry & Meghan for a living. My children/grandchildren should should be so proud”.

    • Becks1 says:

      Tominey has long been very very anti-Sussex. I think the two biggest reasons currently are that she is one that H&M have specifically called out for her lies – remember she had Cry-gate, and that was the one story that Meghan very clearly refuted in the Oprah interview, and Harry also called her out for her lies and fake stories in Spare (not by name but she’s in there.)

      She thought she was going to have a nice little career just writing lies and spouting fiction about the Sussexes and she would be able to get away with it for the next 30 years or whatever and instead Harry has said “nah, she’s full of sh!t” and she cannot handle that.

      Also the Sussex Squad calls her out repeatedly and she hates that, lol.

      But yeah in general she and Angela Levin are really really unhinged when it comes to Harry and Meghan. I mean most of the RRs are but Camilla is one where I think, “wow you really did think you had a chance with Harry, didn’t you?”

      • OriginalMich says:

        I watched the clip where she was called out about Crygate and she literally could not accept that she got it wrong. Like, she wasn’t playing the game that most of them play, she really couldn’t fathom or recognize that she had been used and had written something that amounted to slander. I remember thinking, ‘there is something wrong with this woman’.

      • L84Tea says:

        @OriginalMich, that look she had on her face is permanently burned into my brain. She was literally a deer in headlights when they called her out for getting it wrong, then a long pause, then finally her, “I don’t agree.” She has played such a crucial and despicable part in the Meghan slander–so seeing her now squirm and flop around like a worm in a puddle is a thing of beauty to watch.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ OriginalMich, oh how I would love to see that!! I am going to try and find this clip.

        @ Becks1, these two are certainly vying for the most unhinged RR’s currently. They are trying to out hinge Piss Morgan which is a tall order. Though I love the fact that she is constantly called out to be the constant liar that she is as well as Angela too. You would think that they would err on the side of caution but they simply can’t keep their control their true colors.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Kate and the Midds dictated cry-gate to her. Tominey expected everyone to believe the lies, just like Kate expected those lies to be believed. They quadrupled down on the cry lies after the Oprah interview, still expecting that if they screamed loudly enough, eventually their lies would win out.

      • L84Tea says:

        @BothSidesNow, it was the morning after the Oprah interview and Tominey was wearing a bright kelly green dress–if that helps your search.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Nota that’s exactly who I think leaked the story and I think that’s part of why she was so pissed about it. She was used by the Middletons and she looked horrible on an international stage and I think she directs all that anger and bitterness at H&M.

      • Babz says:

        She also tweeted once that she received a death threat and tried to blame it on the Squad, saying she had contacted the police about them. Whereby, the Squad promptly forwarded her tweet to the Metro Police, wanting them to check on her and to make sure she was safe. They never once mentioned that she was blaming them. The Squaddie who forwarded it received a reply from the police saying they had no record of her filing a report of a death threat. She lied about it, like she lies about everything. Thing is, she has littles at home, and you have to wonder what kind of example she’s setting for them. She is completely unhinged.

      • Whyforthelove says:

        Watching the Sussex Squad constantly get under her skin brings me such petty joy. And they do it so well…and so often lol

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ L84Tea, thank you for the time line. I am trying to find it now but was not having any success yet but with this timeline it will help tremendously!! Thank you!!!

      • Jais says:

        Yeah, it’s always seemed like it was Kate and Carole who planted the fake crying story with Tominey, especially considering Tominey attended Pippa’s wedding as a guest. Then, in Spare, when confronted, Will and Kate essentially say it was Camilla bc Will all of the sudden remembers, snaps fingers and says “oh darn Harold, we happened to randomly mention something to Camilla, a known leaker when we had a long dinner with her and pa while you were gone! Whoops-daisy!” Either they all planned it together or Will and Kate threw Camilla under the bus when it was really only them. Either way, Camilla no doubt read Spare. Please, of course she did and she absolutely clocked that moment where Will and Kate said it was her. Camilla is saying Rose who? Let me remind you bout Rose.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @BothSidesNow, a bit of editing has been done since the original-not too much. ‘Deer in the headlights’ is an excellent descriptor. She doubles down on her ‘sourcing’ aka, Kate, CarolE, Knauff? maybe CPB. I actually believe this might not be one involving her. Or, involving all of them with the multiple sourcing from liars like @Jais mentioned. 6:42? mark.

        From Spare, pgs 350/351 re:Crygate: ‘from a royal correspondent, a sci-fi fantasy describing the “growing froideur” (good Lord) between Kate & Meg. “This particular royal correspondent had always made me ill. She’d always. always got stuff wrong. But this felt more than wrong.”

        December 10, 2018. H&M’s second summit with the WanKs. Another apology to Meghan from Kate. SPARE in italics, “Why haven’t they phoned this execrable woman who wrote this story, and demanded a retraction?”. Kate flustered and she and Will were evasive not answering.

      • PrincessK says:

        Tominey has been anti Sussex from Day One.
        When Archie was born she gave a live interview from Windsor saying that the Sussexes need to know their place and stop outshining the Cambridge’s and they need to understand their position in the pecking order.
        Tominey is always boasting about her inside contacts, and l believe that one day this is all going to spectacularly backfire.
        She is Team Willy and Katie for a reason and l hope we find out.

      • Kathleen says:

        The Crygate story really fizzled when Harry emphasized that they had Kate’s note of apology and that Meghan’s friend was in their kitchen and is a witness to the whole scene. Remember when Meghan said Archie had a voracious appetite for books and #CamillaTomineyisaLiar reported that Meghan said Archie was a voracious reader? The woman spins like a top!

  5. Brit says:

    I like the how media always acts as if they can’t decide who they talk about. No one cares about Charles and everyone including the media knows it. They’re just pissed because they had no heads up about Harry coming, they have no access and can’t couldn’t bully him or bribe him into dropping the case or settling out of court. The overshadowing excuse is getting boring. Harry is there for court, not his family and they need to stop trying to switch the narrative.

    I imagine the family is also getting threats and anger behind the scenes from their tabloid buddies because Willam already tried to get in the way of Meghan’s lawsuit and I’m sure the press was expecting the family to get involved with this as well. Oh well.

  6. C-Shell says:

    Wasn’t there something about how CIII requires Harry to give him 28 days’ advance notice of his travel to the UK? I’m thinking, if anything, Harry might have given his dogsh-t father 28 **minutes** notice. There wasn’t time to leak it to their minions/masters, obviously, and there surely would have been given enough time.

    LOL, also, Harry, the “drug user,” doesn’t appear to have any concerns about his ability to travel out of and back into the US.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I think that is part of the ongoing RAVEC hearing. That somehow Harry was going to be required to give 28 days notice of any time he (or any member of Sussex Family) would be in the UK.

      That’s part of what’s on the table. Does anyone else with his high-level of security danger have to give 28 days advance notice. Since it is clear that people *inside* some of the security agencies (esp The Met) are violently anti-Sussex, giving that much notice would in fact endanger members of Sussex Family.

      RAVEC had a vehemently anti-Meghan person on the committee (Edward Young). He will likely be replaced by a new Charles person. But iirc both Charles and William get to have a rep on the Board, which is another part of what Harry must be fighting. He wants these decisions to be made by people without an anti-Sussex agenda, so he has to prove there *is* an anti-Sussex agenda from both the Charles and William reps.

  7. Noki says:

    I just want someone to dedicate a twitter account that exposes these rota rats personal lives and we can see how they like it. I guess journalists have a code and would protect each other but twitter can get the job done, even hire P.I to dig into their lives, I bet they have tons of shady skeletons.

    • louisemush says:

      I would be lying if I said I didn’t like this idea…I know, I know

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Oh, this would be the perfect vengeance for them!! See how they like having their dirty knickers out in the wind. I can see them needing to be sedated or institutionalized for the “intrusive and illegal exposure of their private lives”.

    • notasugarhere says:

      They do sometimes do that to each other. They all piled on Niraj Tanna when W&K stopped him from getting a photography permit for Kensington Gardens. And when they all got behind the scenes meet-and-greet with W&K’s kids in exchange for stopping negative talk about their laziness – and Tanna was excluded.

      Every so often they goad Piss M about his obsessive behavior and his cheating wife. And sometimes they go after one of their own – the RR who cheated on her husband by having sex in a field with someone else. That sexing in a field was photographed by a fellow tabloid hack and published.

      • Gabby says:

        WHAAAAT! Tell us more about the cheating Mrs. Morgan. You made my day.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes please, tell us everything!!!

      • notasugarhere says:

        She’s the second Mrs. Morgan. He cheated with her while still married to his first wife. This current/second Mrs. Morgan was caught cheating on him. They both came out publicly with some BS about how it was all for an investigative story, nothing to see here.

      • Lorelei says:

        Which RR was caught in a field?? I missed that for sure.

    • Whyforthelove says:

      Oh man that is a fantastic idea.

    • Babz says:

      Well, Jobbo FAFO’d with his comment about dangling Archie over the balcony, and he was dragged so badly, he locked his Twitter accounts. They are all disgusting cowards, and not one of them could handle being outed and treated they way they’ve treated Harry and Meg.

  8. girl_ninja says:

    Tominey has hitched her wagon to the wrong horse and she suffering for it. She has lied, slandered and ridiculed Duchess Meghan for years to no avail. Meghan is living her best life in California with her loving and protective husband. What is Tominey left with the Tampon King, his Mistress Queen, Raging Husband and Lazy-Copy Keen daughter in law. Let’s not forget the other loser siblings in that royal family.

    Stay losing Cam…What a life.

    • Brit says:

      Yep. These people have buyers remorse like you wouldn’t believe. It angers them that Harry and Meghan don’t want or need them, bypassed them, are successful without them and are mega rich without them. They’ve also been trying to get Harry and Meghan in rooms with them. Piers Morgan begging for interviews and Camilla recently had a royal reporting event and invited Harry and he declined. They made their golden geese enemies and that has to suck because the others are boring and the ones that make you money hate you.

      • Kelsey says:

        “Camilla recently had a royal reporting event and invited Harry and he declined.”

        Whaaaaaaaaaaat? When did THIS happen?!

      • Jan says:

        He didn’t decline, he simply did not answer.

      • Brit says:

        @Kelsey. This was a few weeks ago. The royal reporters had some type of event that discussed royal reporting in the future and Harry and Meghan’s criticism of the media. Frankly, it screamed, “We wanted to find a way to bring Harry to the table. Look! Harry, we are discussing things. Please give us access!” I truly believe it was BS and the royal reporters are desperate because the others are boring and they bet on the wrong horse. It felt like a trap in my honest opinion. Smoke and Mirrors.

      • Jojo says:

        She said Harry had ‘declined’ to participate. What actually happened was he totally ignored her communication and her discussion event. She wanted it to appear as though she’d had a response from him, albeit a negative response. She had no response at all he just didn’t acknowledge her existence 😂. Which to be fair is what I try to do too, along with the other extreme unhinged H&M obsessives, anal Angela, Piss Morgan and Wooten-aka Maureen.

    • kirk says:

      To be fair to any RR with integrity (IKR 🙄), it’s not so much that they’ve hitched their wagons to the wrong horse – they really have no choice in that given the royal hierarchy. It’s the fact that so many of them choose to be so rapacious and vile to non-inheritors. Perhaps they have a choice. Or more likely, as Norm Chomsky informed Andrew Marr, reporters are hired because of how well they fit into existing media.

    • PrincessK says:

      I believe that she only got a ‘editor’ job at the Telegraph because she has ‘royal sources’, she is supposed to be a political editor but she is nothing of the sort, the title is just a cover.

  9. heygingersnaps says:

    The silence from the british media is hilarious if it wasn’t frustrating. the bbc newsletter that I get daily on weekdays didn’t mention this at all and they would be the first ones braying and sensationalising about some nonsense when it comes to H&M so their silence for me means that they are complicit in this. Haven’t taken them seriously since they’ve been beholden to their tory overlords. People really need to unplug themselves off their tabloid addiction and hold journalists to a higher standard.

    • Fortuona says:

      And the Mirror is also being sued and are not a right-wing paper – Kevin McGuire is associate editor and he is all ‘ kill the royals ‘ for 30 years +

  10. Paulkid says:

    Of course Prince Harry upstaged them all, he’s HARRY! As Kate Hepburn said in Lion in Winter, ” If you are broken, it is because you are brittle.”

    • Mel says:

      OMG , I love that movie! That family is a mess, much like the current residents of the palace.

    • TheWigletOfWails says:

      It doesn’t take much to upstage that bunch. Meghan’s $18 salad upstaged them for DAYS.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        LOL @TWoW. Once a week I order out what the place calls an Oriental Cashew Chicken Salad. It contains,lol, cashews, grilled chicken, red onion, romaine lettuce, purple cabbage crisped/fried up pieces of wonton wrappers and a sesame-ginger dressing. It’s $14. The ingredients are not farm fresh like I’m guessing Meghan’s salad was/is. The BM is making me feel so fancy with my salad.

  11. ML says:

    Does Camil To have a personal vendetta against the DF? This evil woman wrote, “It is perhaps ironic that while Prince Harry is fighting the Daily Mail publisher in court, the King’s communications secretary is former Mail executive Tobyn Andreae.” She highlighted the invisible contract there—that surely was done on purpose?

    • Normades says:

      I thought that was interesting too. She’s literally telling on herself and them by highlighting how cosy the BM is with the Mail.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        As well she should be, though she is going to catch hell for it. CamelToe was blinded by her rage that she spilled the glaringly obvious invisible contract that Harry spoke of and she just confirmed H’s statement as facts.

    • Brit says:

      Jealously is prevalent within the royal reporting and BM in general. They’re jealous of Omid, Oprah, Gayle King etc. They were also jealous that Adele sat down with Oprah. They were also jealous of Tom Bradby as well.

      • Whyforthelove says:

        Oh yeah! They are quick to put down other reporters (especially black and brown ones), but man would they give their eye teeth to be as successful as those other reporters!

    • Shawna says:

      I assume she just thinks that’s an own on Harry, like his dad’s hiring choices are done to hurt him or done in spite of his feelings. I can’t see the most unhinged royal reporters ever walking back their demented hatred of H&M. Maybe ones that were just wanting the cash will betray the main royals or throw shade, but Tominey? Hard to square with her vitriol.

      • Brit says:

        They would walk back everything if Harry and Meghan kissed their behinds and give them what they want, which is access. You have Piers Morgan still trying to get in contact with them, even going as far as publicly asking for interviews. This all started because family members were jealous and hateful and the media wanted to force Harry and Meghan into the access game. It got out of control and now we’re here. That media did not want Harry and Meghan to leave. They made them too much money and opened doors for many of them. They wanted them controlled and shut down.

    • Jais says:

      Done on purpose? Yeah of course. But the thing is I don’t think she’s sees the DM alliance as a bad thing. The tabloid press, minus the mirror maybe, are incredibly right-wing and so is Camilla Tominey and the Telegraph. Honestly, she prob thinks it’s a smart strategy for Charles to align with Paul Dacre and Tobyn Andrae. Literally, she’s taking the stance of how dare Harry go up against his dad’s friends. It’s mind-boggling but that’s kind of the media landscape. Even now, they’re all twisting themselves into calling this prince Harry’s privacy crusade, like he’s pouting over his privacy. Sure, it’s about privacy but it’s mostly about criminal acts of phone-tapping, fraud, breaking and entering. And so many, bbc included, are fronting for the tabs in the way they’re intentionally reporting the case. Camilla Tominey’s bitterness over Harry’s surprise appearance just had her saying it less subtlety than usual. Luckily, as the actual details emerge, it will be harder to do this.

      • Normades says:

        Ah OK I get it now. And she probably thinks po!nting out that they work for Charles gives them legitimacy.

  12. Jais says:

    It’s genuinely wild how being against the tabloids is somehow a bad thing. Wouldn’t most Brits say the tabs are rather scummy? But here’s CT strait up fronting for them and and directly citing the alliance between the tabloids and the royals. Charles and Camilla hired someone from the DM!!!! Even if Harry doesn’t win this case, does anyone in the UK truly believe that the DM did not do what they’re being accused of? Of course they did and the public knows this. Harry fighting back against this kind of scum is just not a bad look, regardless of Camilla Tominey’s bitter spinning. Whew, jealousy and envy just ooze out of everything she writes.

  13. Eurydice says:

    He didn’t appear in court because he wanted to support Elton John – he’s part of the case. And he’s supporting his family just fine – Meghan, Archie and Lili.

  14. Fineskylark says:

    How can a former prime minister give someone a peerage?

    • Lucky Charm says:

      I was going to ask the same question. That doesn’t make any sense to me.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      The former Prime Minister makes “recommendations” as he/she leaves office to the new incoming Prime Minister. Even Liz “The Lettuce” Truss left two or three pages of “recommendations” for honors and peerages..

    • lleepar says:

      “The Prime Minister’s Resignation Honours in the United Kingdom are honours granted at the behest of an outgoing prime minister following their resignation.
      In such a list, a prime minister may ask the monarch to bestow peerages, or lesser honours, on any number of people of their choosing.” [Wikipedia]

    • Seaflower says:

      The PM (and indeed heads of commonwealth countries) recommend people for peerages. Hence the ridiculousness on Tony Abbott awarding Prince Philip a Knight of the Order of Australia among other stupid politically motivated recommendations.

      • Fortuona says:

        All the political leader get a shout on this as well hence Cyril Smith getting knighted but who should have been stripped of it

    • Debbie says:

      In that case then, C. Tominey writing that Paul Dacre was “about to receive a peerage from Boris What’sHisName” is lazy and imprecise writing, if it’s merely a recommendation for peerage. But, I guess once the BM gets into the habit of bad and inaccurate writing, it leeches into all their work.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        The UK population is about 67 million. How many of the population actually give a f*ck if Dacre is given a peerage or not? I’m guessing, 66.99999999 million.

      • Well Wisher says:

        It was withdrawn because of this lawsuit, in the past Darce when asked about illegal activities denied any wrong doing under oath on more than one occassion, if this case proved otherwise …..

  15. ThatsNotOkay says:

    The walls are tightening around the Rota and they know it. They’re pleading for the public’s help in vilifying those who would take them down. And in so doing, they are only exposing themselves for the corrupt creatures they are. Keep spilling. Camilla. Either one. Each is just as vile as the other.

    • Whyforthelove says:

      Thatsnotokay this is spot on. The excerpts of this article are panicked. (bless you for saving us from having to read the whole thing Kaiser!) she is freaking out. They assumed as the press they would always have the advantage. The Royals assumed as the Royal Family they would have an advantage. Harry just showed up and in one walk to the Courthouse he just destroyed their illusions. Meghan knew her worth from the beginning which is why they hated her (well and because the Rota and the RF are horrible racists.). Now Harry has done the work and he understands his worth and his power. They whole nasty crew is terrified and they should be. I could not be more excited and happier to watch the Rota take this journey and drag the Royal family with them.

  16. KFG says:

    Cameltoe the liar is upset that she didn’t have the scoop and her clickbaits aren’t getting traction. I love this for them. Eff the RF and their racist tabloid goons! Go Harry, destroy them!

    • Renae says:

      Oh no! Don’t destroy them.
      I’m old, have cancer and am essentially homebound. Without the tabs I would find no comedy at all in the world. I look at them like MAD Magazine minus the irony , wit and sarcasm.
      Don’t destroy them. Just make them the laughingstock they are.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Renae, I am immensely sorry for your health situation. I do hope that you are able to kick cancers ass out into the stratosphere and beat it!!!! I am sending you excellent juju and viral hugs as well!!! You CAN do this!!!!


      • solidgold says:

        The tabs need to be destroyed. Too many people with low intelligence believe in them.

      • Renae says:

        Thank you @bothsides! I’m working on it. I had never even heard of the Brit tabs until recently. (Well, I do remember News of the World and how it seemed everyone was either having Elvis’ baby or was mating with interstellar aliens….but that was over 60yrs ago.). I found out these when some in-laws came over for a visit and just left them here. WOW! I giggle each morning silently saying “they just Can’t be that stupid!”

  17. Amy Bee says:

    The piece is just nonsensical. Camilla, the rest of the press and the Royal Family just have to admit that they effed up.

    • solidgold says:

      They need to accept Meghan is a human being, but they cannot do that. The rats will never admit they effed up.

  18. Shawna says:

    It’s in no way “ironic” that KC3’s comms secretary is a DM alum. It’s part of the entire corrupt system. It’s evidence, in fact, that BRF collusion with the BM is rampant and anti-Harry.

  19. ElleE says:

    She buried the lede:

    “The court case also comes amid speculation that Paul Dacre, Associated Newspapers’ editor-in-chief, is about to receive a peerage from former prime minister Boris Johnson.”

    Mr. Dacre could also receive 10 years in jail in which to enjoy his new peerage, courtesy of the high court!

    2023 is going to be very exciting for him either way!

    • Typical Virgo says:

      Ellee- as much as it would be EXACTLY what Paul Dacre deserves (jail time) I don’t think that you can send someone to jail with a lawsuit. I wish you could, in this case, trust me

      • ElleE says:

        False testimony does come with jail time. Stay positive!

        From Byline:
        “Dacre told the Leveson Inquiry that the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday did not use phone hacking.

        Challenged on this at the Inquiry, Mr. Dacre said: “I can be as confident as any editor, having made extensive enquiries into the newspapers’ practices – and held an inquiry – that phone hacking was not practiced by the Mail on Sunday or the Daily Mail. You know that because I gave this inquiry my unequivocal assurances.”

        Giving false or distorted testimony to public inquiry under oath is a jailable office under s35 of the Inquiries Act.“

    • Well Wisher says:

      Succinct and to the point.

  20. UNCDancer says:

    I used to think these types of articles were simply a matter of sh-tposting for clicks and likes, that the reporters didn’t actually believe what they were writing. But the more I watch of this week’s events, I think these heauxes are really in their feelings about this, they feel personally hurt and betrayed by Harry’s willingness to defend his family and stand for what he believes is right. It’s nuts.

    • Brit says:

      They’re traumatized. Harry and Meghan have been fighting back every step of the way. Taking control of their life and story. Successfully suing and winning cases. All that media had to do was threaten members of that family with bad press and they would perform for them in a heartbeat. They’ve used bullying, estranged family members, threats etc and nothing has stopped the Sussexes. They don’t know what to do.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Brit, the brilliant aspect of H&M is that no one seems to have caught on to their motto; FAFO!! It would be prudent for CT and AL to back off but they simply can’t get past their own unhinged anger and resentment that H&M refused to play their manipulative games. The day will come when one or both of them will suffer from FAFO!!! I hope I see it too as they are both so deserving of such an outcome.

  21. Wesley says:

    IIt’s all so confusing. The UK hates Harry, but turning up to attend a Court Case will “overshadow the King’s charm offensive”. How does that work. If people hate you they usually pretend you don’t exist, they give you the cold-shoukder, freeze you out. Also, Harry (& Meghan) have transited Britain before – seeing the Queen but not Charles – & leaving before the Press knew they were there. All this nonsense about putting Harry in his place by being “too busy” to see him is just cover for Harry never asking to see him in the first place (Charles was supposed to be in France).
    Finally, unpopular Harry, who the Royals don’t want to see at the Coronation now has to go to the Coronation for what- publicity for the Coronation?

    • Renae says:

      Wesley, you hit the nail on its head in almost every sentence. Thank you.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Yes, @ Wesley, you have pointed out every aspect of their contradictory statements.

        The issue is that H&M were paying out the big, big pounds that created a cushy lifestyle when they were still members of the BaRF. But those wells have dried up so CamelToe, Angela and the rest of the RR’s are a sinking ship and they are willing to take those who are no longer useful for dirt, down with them. It’s now every man for himself.

    • Mrs.Krabapple says:

      Yes Harry is so horrible that hus father and brother made a point to being too busy to se him, disappointing Harry who expected the red carpet to be rolled out. Yet Harry is also horrible for scheduling his visit when he thought Charles would be out of town so he wouldn’t have to see him. Which is it? Did he want a red carpet from Charles, or did he want to avoid Charles? It’s like they couldn’t decide which would be worse so they just printed both.

  22. Lisa Meyrose says:

    I wonder where he stayed? Not Frogmore or we would have heard about it by now. With Elton John?

    • MaryContrary says:

      That’s my guess. He has plenty of friends he could say stay with-but Elton would have the best security in house.

      • Okay says:

        I hope that now that they both sued DM their relationship can be mended. Harry was hurt that Elton John somehow worked with the DM when his wrote his own memoir because of what they did to Diana and to him. I don’t think he meant to hurt Harry and they are so close and I hope they are closer now that they are standing together against DM.

      • Kook says:

        @okay where are you getting your information?
        It sounds like fanfiction..there has been no indication of Harry having issues with Elton considering they were just singing his praises in his retirement video.
        Please don’t spread misinformation about Harry and Meghan when we already have tabloids and haters doing that.

  23. Lizzie says:

    Another spectacularly failed charm offensive. Seems like the French, along with most of the CW, find this family just offensive. On to Germany, where you know H&M saw a lot of love last year.

    • Lauren says:

      That was just for the countdown start, the actual games are later this year. So expect we will see Harry and Meghan in Germany, maybe with their kids, for the actual games

  24. Mary Pester says:

    Camilla, Camilla, just HOW long were you on the phone for, screaming at your name sake, WHY DID YOU NOT TELL ME HARRY WAS COMING? WHY DID YOUR TOADS AT THE PALACE NOT TELL ME HARRY WAS COMING! To which her name sake replied “because we didn’t bloody well know, now spin this for all your worth or you will never get another story from any of us.!!
    See there is an old saying” when you lay down with dogs you catch fleas!! And boy oh boy is she itching now. Charlie isn’t to busy to see Harry, HARRY doesn’t care if he sees him or not, Harry thought Charlie and his tampon were in France, and he knows his brother is a lazy bstd and would shoot of on holiday the minute the schools broke up, oh and HOW DARE the high court schedule a hearing without the kings permission 🤣🤣give it up lady, you and your career are toast

  25. Judy says:

    Harry has the presence and bearing of a leader, someone who inspires trust.

    • Jojo says:

      Yes he certainly does Judy 😀. I am in awe of his bravery, kindness and unfailing determination to do the right /good thing at every turn.

      Both he and Meghan are breaths of fresh air, natural sources of inspiration, who are unfortunately caught up in a corrupt, greedy and selfish landscape. If he were my son, or her my daughter, I would be exceptionally proud of the adults they have become and their continual efforts to make a difference in the world by their actions.

      I think it is these qualities that ensures they both continue to attract many loyal supporters from all demographics, countries and walks of life. People recognise their authenticity and their desire to put kindness out into the world rather than vitriol.

      They are great role models imo.

  26. Nat says:

    I don’t know which one is worse, Tominey or Levin.

    • Jais says:

      Levin is messier and comes across as looney-tunes and blatantly supports all the moon-bump conspiracies. It’s obvious enough that she’s been called out and seems to have lost some tv gigs. She has no chill. Which is why I think Tominey is worse. She regularly goes on the morning shows and consistently slates the Sussexes by ignoring certain facts in favor of others. She’s spoken about reputation before and she has an agenda and an axe to grind.

  27. QuiteContrary says:

    “It is perhaps ironic that while Prince Harry is fighting the Daily Mail publisher in court, the King’s communications secretary is former Mail executive Tobyn Andreae.”

    Paging Alanis Morissette …

    It’s not ironic. It’s vile that Charles and the side piece hired a former Fail exec.

    Both Camillas are deranged.

  28. QuiteContrary says:

    P.S. Tominey: Harry’s “nearest and dearest” are in Montecito.

  29. jferber says:

    Oh, please, a fruit fly could do that. Never envy your betters, Charles. Not only is it not good for their health, you can’t kill off everyone who has more charisma than you. How the bodies would pile up!

    • Debbie says:

      It’s been about 30 years since Diana’s death, and they still haven’t learned that particular lesson yet.

  30. solidgold says:

    Clown Tomniey is something else. Totally delusional and full of hate.

    Imagine if these people had just treated Harry and particularly Meghan with a little bit of humanity and respect.

  31. Jay says:

    I wonder if Camilla T will regret this article – not only has she now drawn her readers attention to Harry’s court case, but she’s also emphasized the connections between the royals and the Mail. Not to mention casually dropping the truth that Harry’s presence in London would surely outshine his father’s trip abroad? I agree, but that’s not Harry’s problem.

    Charles is now in a mess of his own making, because now that he has said he’s “too busy” to see his son, he can hardly go out and try to upstage him with his own events. His diary is empty, everyone knows it, and if he were to try to throw in a visit to a school or a last minute stop at one of his charities, now he’ll be peppered with questions about why he won’t see his own son. Now, the king has basically got to hide under a desk to avoid his own son. Karma.

    • Lady D says:

      Love this comment, Jay, just love it. The thought of Charles hiding under a desk rather than face his son, has warmed my heart. I hope it gives Harry a grin, too.

    • Okay says:

      Well there are 73 journalist names being hidden during the process so she might be on the list already. I’m just loving evil people getting their a*s handed to them.

  32. B says:

    Well since Harry is that powerful, they should stop screwing with him.

  33. Over it says:

    Is it too much to ask for Harry or Meghan to sue this woman? Like why can’t she ever just shut the f up and go away forever with her lying hateful bitter jealous self ?

    • TheWigletOfWails says:

      Why sue her and give her the attention she desperately craves? She’s tried to center herself in H&M’s story and Harry quickly dispatched her in Spare. She’s still hurting from the rejection.

  34. AC says:

    Harry going to England without ANYONE knowing he was going to be there is literally like “secret service” style kind’ve strategy. No leaks whatsoever, just show up. I love it ! And literally everyone there still seems shocked. Lol.. can we just repeat the word that even their own homegrown paper blurted out last week about the BRF: “weakened”.

  35. Okay says:

    What is most telling is how this sounds like a bitter ex-girlfriend that found out her ex was in town and didn’t bother to let her know or meet up with her. They have not moved on lol.

    1. The entire BRF is easily upstaged by handsome Harry doing things

    2. BM is green with envy that Harry makes international headlines no matter what

    3. This particular “journalist ” is salty as hell that he never came back to the UK for good and left her with vanilla Will and Kate.

    4. That Harry really did move on from them and has his revenge body and smile intact

    5. Harry most like likely isn’t coming to the coronation. He didn’t go to a planet with no phones, That they were not to busy to text back lol

    6. That Prince Harry proved that all of those articles for the past 2-3 months are lies from Charles and William and if they had so much communication from Harry people they would have leaked it and put him in danger. None is speaking and that makes it so much harder to say why they didn’t respond to the invitation.

    Harry really DGAF anymore and I love it.

  36. AC says:

    Not to mention, he did all this without having to rely on Taxpayer’s money.. lol.. and what a genius strategy.

  37. Typical Virgo says:

    Charles In Charge!

  38. bisynaptic says:

    I read “Anmer Hall, their Norfolk butthole”. 😂 Was this intentional on Tominey’s part?

  39. Noor says:

    Why the whining and complaining ? Camilla of
    the Telegraph should be reporting on Prince Harry witness statement as reported by Sky News,
    ” Prince Harry has said the Royal Family withheld information from him about phone hacking because they didn’t want him to bring a claim as it would “open a can of worms”.

  40. jferber says:

    King Harry and Queen Meghan–if the world were just and good.

  41. sammi says:

    Hilarious! What TomCat does not say is that Charlie arranged these events to take attention away from the court case and showed no support for his son’s case againgst illegal behaviour which he knew about years ago and hid from Harry.

  42. Chelsea says:

    These people are not going to be able to cope well when the Invictus Games comes around in September in Germany especially given that Charles seems to be prioritizing popularity in Europe over the Commonwealth(which seems like a dumb strategy but i digress). It kind of gets forgotten because the Queen died a couple days later, but the UK Press had a rage aneurysm last September when Harry and Meghan visited Germany for the one year out countdown to this year’s IG.

    They wrote multiple articles complaining about the “red carpet” being rolled out for H&M via local politicians and high ranking military officials being there to greet them along with a very loud crowd taking selfies with them and the tabloids also tried to make a thing about the German military flying them from the UK to Germany only for the German government to tell them they’d already agreed to this when they decided to host IG and their offer still stood. If the scenes at this year’s games are just that but on a bigger scale, which i imagine it will be, the tabloids and the Firm are going to lose it.
