Princess Kate did another piano recital at this year’s Eurovision contest

The annual Eurovision contest is something I’ve never really gotten. I won’t even blame my Americanness on my lack of interest – it’s just one of those things for which I will always be apathetic. Well, Eurovision has taken over everything, especially Twitter, and people are really into it. This year’s Eurovision is being held in Liverpool, even though (historically speaking) the rest of Europe doesn’t care much for Britain or the annual British entry in the Eurovision contest. Was it last year – it was the year Italy won, so maybe 2021 – I remember seeing that everyone refused to vote for the British entry. Anyway, given that the contest is being hosted in the UK and given that the royal family is the UK’s most famous “export,” the Princess of Wales decided to gift everyone with another piano recital, just like she did at her keen Christmas concert in 2021.

Kate “joined” a performance of the song “Steania” by Kalush Orchestra, a song from Ukraine which won last year. Kalush Orchestra performed in a metro station in Kyiv, Ukraine. Kate performed at Windsor Castle, wearing a one-shoulder Jenny Packham gown which people are already (correctly) comparing to Meghan’s Christopher John Rogers look from the BET Awards last year. I bet Kate contacted Jenny Packham right after that and described the exact look she wanted. Apparently, Kate’s bit was filmed “earlier this month.” So, much like her Christmas piano recital, she pre-recorded it rather than play it live.

Something I don’t get? If this was prerecorded at Windsor Castle weeks ago, why didn’t someone convince Kate to edit out the part where she’s just laughing hysterically into dead space? Like she thinks it’s all super-funny? I don’t know. The wrong tone? Speaking of tone…

    Eurovision is usually held in the country of the team that won the year before. Last year’s winner was Ukraine and since it would be a bad idea to hold the event in the middle of a war zone, Britain stepped in as a proxy.

    Kate was thoroughly mocked after her Christmas recital. Why would she do this again?

    • Kel says:

      Because she got more good press from it than mocking. It was worth the risk to them. It was the most she was talked about and her video had millions of views from that Christmas Special…that’s really what it was all about.

      They’ll keep doing these kinds of things because it gets them attention.
      Will and Kates biggest struggle with the public before Meghan was apathy. No one cared but they now have a segment of people who do care even if it’s because those people don’t like Meghan.
      As long as this continues they’ll keep the same playbook.

      • Tessa says:

        The sycophants in the media have it good press. She was probably dubbed both times. Kate has no clue her trying to pass herself off as a pianist. An insult to real pianists. Kate is all on the surface.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Also, a lot of the bad press or comments would have been held back so she didn’t see them, resulting in her, thinking she may have world-class entertainer. Her minders would have kept back as much of the negative stuff as possible.

        I’m not a Eurovision fan, but since they allowed Australia to take part, some quarters make a big deal of it, especially one of our national broadcasters. A couple of my friends have a Eurovision party every year now. I never go. Luckily, the choice has never been presented to me, but I would rather stick pins in my eye.

        And what is All. That. Hair?! Extensions? Wiglets? No way is her hair that long, especially not curled up like that. Wow, she’s really something.

    • Ronaldinhio says:

      My problem is the optics.
      Full length ball gown, in a castle, wearing sapphire earrings, putting her Grade 5 piano to no good use.
      It is so far from what anyone wants to see, even ropey musical recitals from our own children are hard to sit through – why must we face her attempts.
      Anyone younger than 40/50 thinks this is a hot mess and beyond out of touch.
      Feeding people in food banks and here is the Princess in her castle performing for us – noone asked for this horror

      • Kel says:

        Optics doesn’t matter when no one in the press calls it out. In fact the British media is all praising her which means the blind followers will not be outraged. She’s also white so she gets the benefit of doubt.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Ronaldinhio, please add under 60+ to your listed age group as well. Keen feeling the need to perform is such a blatant example of her ridiculously enormous ego and wanting to have everyone to fawn over her. It is actually insulting to the other contestants, IMO.

        I fully agree that the optics that she put into her recital, if you can call it that, was extremely in poor taste and tacky as hell. Surprised Keen didn’t wear a tiara as she wasn’t able to for the Con-A-Nation…..

      • equality says:

        @BothSidesNow Agree. I’m over 40/50 and don’t see the need for her performance.

      • The Hench says:

        I read that she hasn’t achieved Grade 5 piano – one newspaper reported her as having “Grade 3 piano with grade 5 Theory”.

        T’internet tells me:
        “Grade 3 is considered “early intermediate”, and everything between levels 3-6 is considered intermediate. Once you hit Grade 7, that’s when things start getting advanced. Basically, by Grade 3, you should be comfortable with all the basics”

        So, Katie is literally a basic piano player.

      • Mustlovedogs says:

        I am 61 and I think this is a hot mess and beyond out of touch. And I will add embarrassing, unnecessary, and tone deaf in both the physical and psychological/ social sense.

    • HennO says:

      Oh, that’s easy…
      Because, at last year’s Eurovision song contest, the Serbian contestant Konstarkta, sang about Meghan’s “Deeply Hydrated” hair. Since nobody is impressed by anything Kate does or stands for, SHE had to intject herself in a Meghan space, out of jealousy. Hence this fake piano ‘recital’ nobody has asked for.

      And of course she needs to copy Meghan’s look and dress for the occasion.

      Was this Kate the Great Mozartian propaganda of any help for Ukrain (please ! find a better excuse Kate) or even the UK contrastant ? Of course not. She even might
      have irritade the Eurovision voters, which could have let to the UK to end second to the last spot in the competition.

      Kate needs help Asap.

      • Rackel says:

        @ henno. That is insane. So because megan was spoke of well, or could’ve been a joke take. Kate’s people decided that

        1. Kate would be well received.

        2. Kate neededs a eurovision moment.

        3. The British powers that be in entertainment still see megan as one of theirs. If megan was spoken about that means Britain is in well regard. Crazy.

        4. British powers that be wanted to steal Megan’s moment.

    • Barrett says:

      The dress – is this a perfume ad?

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    She got SOOOOOO BOOOOED by both the audience in the arena (love ya Liverpool) and most of SM – she got dragged, only the stans and press kissed her ass over it.

    For years the UK didn’t take the competition serious but that changed last year with Sam Ryder – we came 2nd to Ukraine which is why we ended up hosting it on their behalf. The UK entry this year was a good track but her staging was quite boring and vocally she’d been having problems all week (also there were quite a few other female solo performers with similar staging so she didn’t really stand out in the crowd) but she didn’t deserve 2nd to last as there were worse acts (Albania with the awkward family – someone needed to rescue the brother). Plus the jury votes are always political, they always give higher points to their neighbours – its why I think it should just be done on the public vote only.

    Auntie Beeb put on a good show!

    Finland was ROBBED – Cha Cha Cha!!!!!

    • ArtHistorian says:

      Finland was so robbed! It was definitely the audience favourite, it got a HUGE amount of televotes and yet it was the jury favourite that won. And the jury ALWAYS choose the most bland and boring pop song. Finland was so clearly robbed and the fact that they lost to Sweden of all nations is just an salt in the wound.

      The juries are composed by music professionals and that becomes clear when you see how they always choose the most mainstream but also bland pop songs (with the most mainstream aesthetics). The choose like they have to find an artist that is mainstream and bland enough to appeal to the largest audience – but that also means that they overlook the more camp entries that often present some real bangers. The fact that next year is the 50th anniversary of Abba’s Eurovision win with Waterloo makes the jury vote this year a bit suspect because while many juries almost always give Sweden top points, this year there were more than usual.

      However, Finland has now entered the hallowed company of Eurovision runner-ups who became more popular and iconic than the winners.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        ITA about the juries and you could tell that the audience in the arena weren’t happy that Sweden was getting all the top jury points – they kept booing and shouting ‘Cha Cha Cha’. Graham and Hannah kept telling them off for it. I had forgotten about the 50th ABBA anniversary so yeah it does seem as if they juries fixed it a bit as if it wasn’t for her sweeping all the top jury point she wouldn’t have won.

        I love Loreen but the track she won with previously was much better than this one – its a good track but when compared to other entrants it wasn’t a clear winner.

        The standout act for me (after Finland) was Australia – they were sooooo good and its a great track. That should have finished higher than it did, same with the French act. Slovenia should also have done better.

        Didn’t understand why Italy was also getting some big jury points, same with the Israeli Ariana Grande wannabe (good song and staging but you see this act all the time at Eurovision).

      • ArtHistorian says:

        I loved the act from Moldova as well – it was great for dancing and the neo-pagan aesthetic is just soo Eurovision camp.

        I love camp and that is one of the reasons why I love Eurovision – and both Germany and Croatia delivered on this front. The latter with an act that was very pertinent to why Eurovision was hosted by the UK instead of the actual winner last year: Ukraine. Speaking of the hosting: It really annoyed me how the show was very much about the UK and less about the Ukraine. The UK was a proxy host – but you could very much feel the post-Brexit English nationalism tinging the event (and Kate’s cameo very much added to this aspect), which is another reason why she shouldn’t have done this.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Yeah I was also a bit confused about why there wasn’t more of a Ukrainian feel about it – they had that one host but they could have done the voting reveal with Graham and the Ukrainian commentary host.

        But I guess this was something that was agreed with the EBU, BBC and Ukrainian broadcaster. I think they tried to balance it, hence why the interval act was past Eurovision acts – also I can imagine it would have been difficult to get Ukrainian acts to the UK etc..

        I adore Eurovision – its campness is legendary and its why everyone loves it.

      • Lili says:

        Yes, it’s alarmingly how nationalistic the UK is. I watch the Esc every year and every country manages that the Esc is all about Europe. And although UK was only representative this year, they really tried everything to make it all about them. And I was shocked by the reactions from the audience. Cheering for minutes for the UK and booing out another country! This has never happened! Disgusting! Whenever I see cities in England, I always remember that England only became rich because of their slavery and stealing from foreign countries…
        What I also can’t understand is why Germany has become last. I really liked this performance and think it was the best. The rest was always the same and a bit boring (except maybe Australia)

      • greenmonster says:

        @Lili: I’m often deeply embarrassed by the German act (I am German) but not this year. Although LOTL was not my favorite act, I thought it was so much better than a couple of other acts and deserved a better place. I was sure they could make it into the top 10.

      • Lily says:

        Finland WAS robbed! I rather disliked Sweden’s entry anyway – Tattoo sounds SO MUCH like Euphoria and the performance was super boring (I’m sorry, but her costume and nails made her look like a decaying corpse at moments), not to mention that there were so many better singers. She really, really did not deserve that win. Booh.

        We watched in on television here and Kate appeared for like, 2 sec maybe. She looked like she was touching those keys for the very first time. Honestly, I had forgotten she even appeared until I saw this post.

    • Nic919 says:

      I liked both Finland and Norway and they were robbed by the jury. The fact that the audience vote was so high for both of them compared to their jury standing shows that they were robbed.

      The Sweden song was aggressively mediocre and has too much of a jury lead to be beat. That Finland got so close really shows it is the song that captured the spirit of this years event.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        “Aggressively mediocre” is such a perfect description of this song – and the beige costume of the singer was actually really apt. I loved the Norwegian act as well – the song was a banger and the singer’s costume was the best kind of Eurovision camp, something between Loki and the The Six.

        The increasingly huge discrepancy between the jury vote and the audience vote is becoming a bit of a problem. The whole raison d’être of the Eurovision is Europe being united through music but since the juries are dominated by music industry people that seem to approach the voting through a lens of global marketing, they have become very out of touch with what the audience likes. The Finnish song is such an amazing phenomena in many way that embodies the very best of what Eurovision is. First of all, it is an absolute banger of a song. However, it is also in Finnish – a very small language and the language barrier in no way hampered the general appeal of the song – talk about a multi-national and multi-lingual audience being united through music! The top of the cherry is the camp aesthetics of the staging.

        I have watched Eurovision since I was a child in the 80s – when the contestants performed in their native languages and I always felt a bit sad when everything suddenly was in English after the turn of the millennium. However, I do love how camp the Eurovision became in terms of aesthetics in the 21st century. Eurovision is special in so many ways – because of its history (it was created as an answer to the horrors of WWII) but also because it was never about bein g mainstream, so it just sucks when the jury consistently chooses the most mainstream and culturally bland numbers in when the audience vote year after year shows that this is not what people actually love about Eurovision.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Am not a fan of the jury vote and agree with what Art Historian said about how different the jury and public vote is. The juries are out of touch and can be quite snobby often overlooking acts like Finland as they see them as ‘novelty’ which they are not.

        Personally I’d like to seem them do away with the jury all together and make it all about the public vote – esp since they have open the vote to everyone around the world.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        Agree. Do away with the jury vote – and then it really will be the world united through music.

    • sparrow says:

      I didn’t watch it, so not aware of the crowd’s reaction. I guess it’s on film somewhere. I can’t find it on youtube and I don’t do twitter.

    • EPLFan says:

      I missed the piano solo — my watch party spent about the first three minutes fiddling with the volume so someone was standing over the images while the sound went from ear-deafening to non-existent. I got a text that “Catherine played the piano!” but it wasn’t showing up on Twitter so I assumed this person was mistaken and it was actually Ruslana or some other Ukrainian singer (I hadn’t seen Ruslana and guessed she was in there somewhere).

      As for the winners, the bulk of the ex-pats who showed up where I was were Ukrainian and Israeli (we were fundraising for Ukraine during it), so they couldn’t care at all about Swedent but went crazy for Israel. I was describing myself as “resigned” to Sweden. Finland’s jury vote being 5th somewhere around 30 juries in had me surprised, and my friend and I were trying to do factorials and other math to figure out what Sweden could get from the public to keep them up.

      (Also, if it isn’t clear, I am a Eurovision superfan.)

  3. aquarius64 says:

    So they ban Zelensky for Kate’s piano recital?. No good.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yeah – bad move by the Eurovision powers that be, the Ukrainians were not happy about it even the Prime Minister said he should have been allowed to address them. They did win it last year after all.

      • Nic919 says:

        They already had a real musician in the clip when they show Andrew Lloyd Webber playing and if you notice the close up on his hands were very different from the distance shots they did for Kate.

      • EPLFan says:

        Sunak and Starmer both came out in favor of letting Zelensky speak. But given Russia bombed the Ukrainian act’s city during the show, it might have only gotten worse with the bombing if Zelensky spoke.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        The mere fact that they refused ANY of the Ukrainian government to speak at the event proves that Eurovision simply didn’t want Ukraine to participate at all, even though they won last years contest. Such a bad and poorly made decision on their part all around.

      • abritdebbie says:

        I understand that people wanted Zelensky to speak, BUT the eurovision song contest is by its definition non political. It was designed to unite people all over European in an event around music. Songs cannot be political so if countries want to make a point, they have to be sneaky. For example this year see Croatia and Switzerland this year.

        Ukraine was completely in the main show and the semi finals. I was totally in tears when “You’ll never walk alone” was sung. It was amazing.

        As a eurovision superfan I say that they made the correct decisions. Eurovision is for the people, not for politicians. Sunak and Starmer can stop trying to politise things and butt out. Once they allow one politician to speak they’d have to allow all of them to speak and some do not deserve a platform.

    • Interested Gawker says:


      That’s a terrible decision!

    • Lady D says:

      I was wondering last night if they had in fact banned Pres. Zelensky from speaking so as to not overshadow Kate. The thought made me furious. Do you think Kate would care if she knew?

  4. Rapunzel says:

    Even the hair was copying Meg. So obvious. And the derangers were falling all over themselves trying to excuse it away. Pathetic.

    • Jais says:

      This blue off-shoulder dress was what a lot of people guessed she would wear to the BAFTAS. It was one of the copy-keen guesses. She just saved it for Eurovision. It actually seems like the white one just blue. She’s deeply unlikable. Meghan owns mansions in her head.

    • Chloe says:

      @rapuzel: since i don’t follow any derangers i am curious to know how they are trying to excuse this away. I mean come on the copying is so obvious. As a stan: they should just accept that meg clearly is a style inspo for keen and keep it pushing

      • Pop says:

        I try to step outside the bubble to see what is happening and they all love it. None of them are fact they are embracing this new glamour. They posted side by sides saying Kate looks better anyways.
        Only 1 person who used to have a big Meghan hate account is calling it out and they are now claiming she’s being paid by the Sussexes. Her posts are not getting a lot of likes

      • Rapunzel says:

        Chloe- they’re basically defending it by saying the dress is better (one deranged said Meg’s was blue toilet paper- disgusting) and others were saying the blue was for Ukraine. As if that meant Kate needed to copy the dress style. Thete was no real defense. Just lame excuses.

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      It’s Kate’s most pathetic blatant rip off yet! She doesn’t even try to conceal her SBF’ing anymore. Like she thinks she can outdo any and everything her sister-in-law does, and she fails miserably every time, except she riles up her base. So Trumpian.

  5. LW says:

    I saw the video on twitter and switched off after 10 seconds, I was so embarrassed for her.

    Her creepy Meghan obsession and kopykating aside, she’s clearly not well. She’s wasting away right before our eyes and it feels like the big elephant in the room that everybody is avoiding and it’s only harming her.

    • Trix says:

      no shit! she is a skeleton! i am not saying the tabs should be body-shaming but clearly there is something wrong and crickets!

    • Nic919 says:

      The obvious copying of Meghan in the one shoulder dress and hair also made it easy to do a side by side comparison with Meghan and that’s where you notice the protruding shoulder blades and neck veins that you don’t see on a fit and healthy Meghan.

      • First comment says:

        Exactly @nic! That was my first thought when I saw the photo! Her shoulder blades are skeletal! It’s alarming! Not only for her but for all women and girls who could envy her thin body and try to get it. She’s not a good role model for them or even for her own daughter. I don’t care about the copying anymore… this “big elephant in the room” is much more disturbing for me..

      • ArtHistorian says:

        She is literally wasting away in front of the eyes of the world – and the silence regarding this has now become deafening.

      • Layla says:

        Omg I KNEW we’d see that dress soon after it was released because she was going to use it for her CJR copykeen moment. I can’t remember but it was a few months ago I think

    • Caribbean says:

      So she made Meghan know she was sharing her fashion contacts but have no problem stealing Meghan’s EVERY look…

      • Nic919 says:

        Honestly Harry tossing in that gem about not giving fashion contacts in his book really has provided the best laughs when we see the reverse happening. I’m sure he included it for that reason.

    • Josephine says:

      I burst out laughing when I saw her. That whole thing had such the feel of a trained puppet being dragged out by drunk mummy and told to play with kkkate too stupid to realize that she’s getting a condescending little pat on the head for her efforts. visions of musical jolly chimp.

  6. Fani says:

    I wondered what do the people who can’t afford to heat their homes or to buy food think of this.

    A woman who’s never held a real job wearing a princess dress from her castle, plays a few notes on a piano.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      The optics were sooooooooooo bad – her in that off shoulder blue dress splayed out around her at a piano was all kinds of colonial/Disney Princess cos playing. She also clashed with the room.

      BtS footage was released and its even worse than the clip.

      • BeanieBean says:

        That whole dress splayed out around her part was something else! I preferred ALW’s piano part, even his mugging for the camera! And it looks like Kate got more airtime that Andrew Lloyd Webber! Kate!!

    • Nic919 says:

      It was brief seconds and you can tell she didn’t actually play it live as compared to the brief section with Andrew Lloyd Webber where the camera does close ups of his hands playing and connected to his body.

      Princess playing in a castle with a dress covering the pedals and distance shots of her moving her hands doesn’t convey someone who played much of anything.

      Best part was that it was super quick and easily forgotten by everyone but the royalists.

      • Brassy Rebel says:

        So, she got all dressed up for a few seconds of her pretending to play the piano while the audience booed? Sounds totally pointless and embarrassing. The royals’ struggle to appear relevant somehow is becoming obvious.

        The guffawing at the beginning is very disturbing and tone deaf.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        She is so inauthentic and the fakery in the staging is sooo obvious. It is an insult to our intelligence.

      • Moondust says:

        I wonder whether she considered playing the golden piano lol

  7. Dee(2) says:

    So that’s what she’s going with for her unabashed copying of Meghan’s look down to the side swept hair, she was honoring Ukraine? I wasn’t even upset this is just embarrassing. Imagine being 41 years old and your contribution as a “diplomat” is playing some chords on the piano in a look you stole from your more accomplished SIL.

  8. equality says:

    A “powerful” statement of support would be more along the lines of refusing to perform unless Zelensky was allowed to speak, advocating for his speech or even reading it out for him instead of pretend-playing along on the piano.

    • tolly says:

      The only thing she cares about with her whole heart is tiaras, as she showed us at the coronation. She won’t defy her in-laws for the Ukraine, small children or working families because they are not important to her in the same way.

      • Miranda says:

        In fairness, getting to wear tiaras and having access to one of the world’s most exquisite collections of jewelry (even if most of it is dripping with blood) and being able to buy a brand new dress to wear for a 5-minute piano recital/photo shoot are the only perks I can think of for a woman marrying into that family.

    • QuiteContrary says:

      This, 100% Equality.

      Simultaneously cosplaying a pianist and Meghan is not expressing solidarity. She’s just an empty vessel.

  9. Gruey says:

    This gives me intense second hand embarrassment. Just wincing and cringing.

    Setting aside the kopykeening (which is so gross) this is just somehow so embarrassing and weird. Idk how to explain it.

    • sparrow says:

      I too get intense second hand embarrassment for her, as well as a sense of pity. Strange. I’d love to see the audience’s reaction but with her edited out!

    • LongThymeLurker says:

      Me too Gruey, I could feel my shoulders hunching up while I tried to turtle.

    • Christine says:

      I can’t even watch it, I fully blushed in my kitchen with secondhand embarrassment. I have no idea who thinks this is a good look for Kitty.

  10. Scout says:

    Her smile gets more and more joker-like. Not being snarky or sarcastic. But she looks like she is grimacing or sneering…and it gets more pronounced with time. She really needs to change her makeup.

    • Jk says:

      She’s always laughing for no reason.

      • WHAT says:

        People who filmed her during that 70s show coronation uploaded the videos to TikTok. Even the girl who touched her hair and you can’t hear her. You can hear a word or two but you can’t hear her clearly nor what she’s trying to conversate. My point is if you can’t hear her clearly with a cell 📲 in her face. Why would any rational person think she’s really playing the 🎹

        With that said this🎹 stunt clearly is dubbed over. The video is broken up so she’s not playing consistently. If she’s so accomplished why isn’t she playing live? Why does it have to be recorded which can be manipulated.

        Also real quick everyone go 🔙 to the first behind the scenes video of William rehearsals for the concert. There’s a lady laughing and a lady walking with him in brown heeled 👢 that Kate has never been seen in. In the full video he’s now walking on the stage-but by himself

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Its because of all the botox and fillers in the her face – she has to make an effort to smile and move her face in general. As for the laughing to herself, she has being doing that for years – there is a clip of her at the coronation giggling to herself. Its not that she’s on meds or anything I think that she’s one of those people that lives in the little fantasy in her head instead of the real world.

      • Alice says:

        There’s a pic of her and William seated at some event soon after their marriage. She’s laughing to herself, and then she laid her head back, covered her face with her hair, and kind of rolled around.

        I’m just saying…that’s not really normal behavior.

      • Leslie says:

        I’ve actually wondered on more than one occasion if she is, in fact, on some kind of medication for anxiety issues. Her continued weight loss, garbled speech, laughing at inappropriate moments (ie, in the middle of the Coronation), vacant stare, and inability to express a coherent thought are strong indications that there is some kind of psychological issue going on. Medications can certainly cause any and all of the above symptoms. Mental health issues require treatment and supervision by medical professionals; I hope she is getting the help she needs.

        Just wanted to add: As someone who has suffered from major depression for 25+ years, I would never criticize or mock someone with mental health issues. I hope my comments have not offended anyone. I am very supportive of treatment for anxiety, depression, eating disorders, and all other psychological conditions.

      • Nic919 says:

        Medication for mental health issues is balanced so that you aren’t supposed to see these odd reactions. The fact that Kate is acting so off means that if she is taking anything, it is not being properly monitored.

        Millions of people take medication for depression and anxiety and you never know it because they are not acting out like this with a balanced prescription.

    First American Idol and now Eurovision. The royals are getting rather desperate. I guess Will needs something to put in his ITV documentary.

    • Talie says:

      I was gonna say, they project so much with Harry & Meghan, but they don’t do this kinda stuff. Say what you want, but netflix and spotify are higher up the food chain of entertainment. It feels like because of the numbers being so bad with the youths, they are doing these stunt appearances, but to appeal to young people, this is not the way. But I can totally see their advisors believing it is.

    • Laura-Lee MacDonald says:

      I just opened my walking companion app for my Apple Watch. It was Will. 38 minutes listening to him?!?!?? No way. Uh-uh. Ew. Wonder if recording that went into the circular as a day of work?

  12. KP says:

    Some of y’all are not getting it with the copying. It’s intentional because it gets her in conversation. Zendaya said she did something one was paying attention to her in the beginning so her team made a goal to be on the best dressed list in comparison to those who were considered the “it” girl of the time even if it meant wearing the same dress. It kept her in the conversation.

    (Obviously Zendaya has substance so she is not comparable to Kate but Kate’s team is following the same strategy).

    Kate is trying to do the same thing. From clothes to words to mannerisms.
    She’s taking Meghan’s biggest moments/looks so that she can be IN THE CONVERSATION.. now she’s elevated herself to Meghan’s level because you (Sussex fans) are talking about her ALONGSIDE MEGHAN!! Doesn’t matter if she’s not best dressed it matters that you are talking about her.

    • Snuffles says:

      I don’t recall Zendaya ever copying looks of her peers. Her goal was to be THAT BITCH on the red carpet so her name would be in the conversation when people were making casting decisions. And it worked, but more importantly SHE WORKED her but off to be where she is now. She had a goal to be more than just talked about.

      • Jais says:

        Actually, Law Roach has talked about this approach before. Once they started getting more attention from designers, they then started being the ones to set the standard. However, they were not just copying the looks of one person. That’s the difference. And zandaya often styled the look in a new or more dating way. Kate is usually a pale comparison when she copykeens because she lacks a sense of styling. But it does get her attention bc she is trolling. Kate is a troll. La grinch. Grinchette.

      • Concern Fae says:

        Law Roach is smart as hell and realized that those “Who Wore It Better?” features in magazines were a great way to get Zendaya’s picture into places she wasn’t famous enough – yet – to get into. So they’d see a famous star wearing a dress that would work for Zendaya. They’d get a hold of it, style Zendaya so she’d slay, and they’d end up in People, US, and other magazines. And they frequently won! Soon enough, Zendaya started showing up in the “Red Carpet Rundowns” and she got first pick of the dresses from then on.

    • Eurydice says:

      An interesting take. I’d say that, along with being in the conversation, it’s important what is said in the conversation. It’s not an elevation if all people can say is that Kate is a copycat; it just reinforces the copycat narrative.

      • Met says:

        It doesn’t when you have the British media to excuse it all away. She has the benefit of whiteness that will make sure she gets away with any copying. Imagine if this was Meghan..the things they would be saying about her. Kate gets a free pass and is being m elevated while completely high jacking Meghan’s style, work and traits.

        I do remember Law and Zendaya talking about this. Zendaya has the talent, beauty, work ethic to back all this up and all that has gotten her to where she is.

        Kate can straight copy and she has a whole establishment and powerful media to prop her up. She doesn’t even have to work hard….just copy and they’ll call it a success.

      • Eurydice says:

        @Met – From my side of the pond, I don’t really give a rat’s ass about the British media and/or the British market. And if it weren’t for the H&M story, I wouldn’t give a rat’s ass about the RF, either. Kate is the only Princess of Wales that they’ve got, so to whom else would they give a free pass? It’s obvious, even to the British press, that Kate can’t possibly copy Meghan’s traits or work – all she can do is copy Meghan’s style, something lots of people do, which is why Ari Emmanuel called Meghan a global icon.

        If the press wants to say that Kate looked pretty in a pretty dress, I don’t think Meghan would mind. She’s busy doing her own thing while the rest of the world’s going nuts trying to find the bandana she wore the other day when hiking.

    • Bren says:

      We should stop bringing attention to Kate copy keening of Meghan’s style. If SS ignores it and stop plastering comparison pictures on social media every time she does it means Kate’s attention grabbing antics are no longer working and she’ll move on to something else. Meghan left three years ago and Kate’s desperation to continue to use Meghan for her own benefit is loathsome.

      • Interested Gawker says:

        I believe it is important for these events to be catalogued in real time for posterity discussed as the copying and othering it is. The Squad people earned a ‘silly season’ low hanging fruit copycat moment to enjoy as they raised so much money for the Sussex children’s birthday. That’s a bit of amusement for them and an increasing embarrassment to Kate fans. That is a closed circle of attention – the Kate stans/bots always fight with SS anyway. The larger issue is people will be able to see this all hashed out in real time.

        Camilla is diabolical. She threw young Harry to the wolves to keep her son’s druggy exploits off the newspaper front pages and now she’s engineered a situation where the Kate stans are saying ‘Meghan’s friend, Giles Coren’ rather than ‘Tom Parker Bowles’ friend, Giles Coren’ about the Rose situation.

        That’s wicked enough but she’s given William the useful ammunition of blaming Kate and Kate alone for ‘pushing him away from his only brother’ out of jealousy/obsession with Meghan. Kate may not have been told the woman she took a selfie with was a notorious M hater but now they can use that picture as proof she(and Carole) directed the online smear campaign. The stans will still blame Meghan for William leaving their precious Kate and Camilla ends up having even more blackmail leverage on William as well as C&C not being the only War of the Waleses/divorce. Cam is amazing…

      • Jais says:

        Usually, when I see Kate being called out for copying on Twitter, it’s screenshots and her name is not even used. I don’t know that I think it shouldn’t be called out. Listen, I hate her getting the attention she wants, but at the same time, if it’s not called out, then it feeds into the erasure. So yeah idk.

  13. Miranda says:

    WTF is this? Have the Waleses finally reconciled themselves to the fact that America is a lost cause, so now they’re gunning (rather unsuccessfully, it seems…) for Europe instead?

    • Kel says:

      Nah Charles had told them to focus on the UK while he focuses on his world tour with all the presidents/prime ministers and governor generals!!
      That’s probably why the Wales don’t have an official tour planned until next year. I do think they’ll try to take Earthsht to Jacinda A in New Zealand if they can get away with it and call it a working trip.

      But you notice Charles and Camilla had first dibs of Eurovision before Kate came along.

      • Miranda says:

        If they take it to NZ, wouldn’t it be MIDDLE Earthshit?

        (Really, New Zealand has leaned into that identity so hard that I’d be shocked if they went there and DIDN’T try to shoehorn Tolkien’s environmentalism into the discussion.)

      • Lady D says:

        Also, Jacinda stepped down. I wonder if the Cambridge’s will have anything to do with her, now?

    • ArtHistorian says:

      Well, Eurovision is the wrong place to do that because it is an old joke in among Eurovision fans that no one likes the UK and thus never vote for them.

  14. Tessa says:

    Liberace had talent and could do the smiling and glitz. Kate has no talent and her grinning is annoying. Kate always has these pre recorded.

  15. L84Tea says:

    Ugh, so embarrassed for her. She looks like a lunatic at this point. Stop Kate, please just stop.

  16. Jane says:

    It was the NAACP awards not BET awards

  17. Mary Pester says:

    Christ could this woman child be any more pathetic. If they think for one minute people are taken in by this crap they are sadly mistaken. The monarchy is finished. Kate is a (Megan) try hard and it ain’t working. She has no empathy, no compassion and all this stupid intrusion into things that have fk all to do with the Royals, just shows how desperate they are becoming, and how scared they are about what’s going to come out in court.

  18. GuestWho says:

    My my my.

    Dancing with the stars, American idol, Eurovision .

    Whatever will the entertainment-industry-adverse Windsor clan get up to next?

    The dress and hair styling is creepy copy kat at her creepiest. The hysterical laughter is a little unnerving. How proud do you think she was of this?

    • Bee says:

      You’ve forgotten Mike Tindall’s regrettable reality show stint! As has most everyone else. They’ve all gone Hollywood! Except for Anne. Anne Would Never. (Not an Anne stan, just saying that she’s the only one left with a shred of dignity.)

  19. RoyalBlue says:

    Meanwhile Mary, Maxima and Letizia roll their eyes at the desperation.

    • sparrow says:

      I know. I can’t imagine someone such as Letizia doing this. Are we unique in having such a desperate princess? (So desperate she comes over as a teen rather than pre queen.)

      • Cecile730 says:

        Yes, you are.
        Come on! What do you want her to do? Work? Don’t make me laugh, that’s for peasant! /s
        No, seriously…she’s desperate to upstage everyone because that’s what princess do in fairytale, it’s them winning (in the Middleton insane mind at least). She trapped the BRF into believing she was what they needed and instead of keeping the long game in mind, she made the dance victory when she’s still not on the throne. She’s stupid and a real trash. Compared to Mary, Maxima and Letizia? She’s straight out of a bin.

      • Lorelei says:

        They always try to compare her to Mary and Mary would never even do this. Mary probably laughed when she saw it.

  20. girl_nina says:

    Kate is such an embarrassment. Her entire existence is vapor. Empty and vapid. She couldn’t make friends with Meghan when she got here because she sees no one and nothing but herself.

    The video of her stupid hysterical smiling at the camera. The obvious copying of Duchess Meghan’s look/gown pushes to the forefront what a waste of space her role is. Pathetic.

  21. Hell Nah! says:

    @GuestWho Oh, I think she was mighty proud of herself.
    This fool lives in her own world. All I see is a skeletal mannequin grinning for relevance.


    • GuestWho says:

      My first thought when I saw the bts was that she looks like Karen carpenter. From the front, it’s not so obvious, but from the side it’s genuinely alarming.

      Andi agree that she was enormously proud of that whole mess.

      • Nic919 says:

        It is obvious she’s in a bubble because her piano skills are less than what an actual child can do after a few years of lessons. That’s she’s preening in gowns and wasting a grand piano for her mediocre tinkling shows how out of touch that family remains.

  22. sparrow says:

    Arghh! The papers are full of this and it’s grating. I’ve never known such an averagely attractive and unaccomplished woman sold to people as an amazing beauty and star achiever. If you’re bombarded with “stunning” “breath taking” “beautiful” for long enough I suppose you become conditioned; it’s like being trained to see Monica Bellucci, Iman, Christy Turlington, Maggie Cheung, even Diana. It’s a mind ****. Her videos are touched and blurred; her photos are edited. Take off the hair and she’d look pretty knackered and not a double-take kind of woman. Her teenage photos show not a wonder beauty in the making but an average rather jowly girl. Equally, I suppose if you’re repeatedly told someone takes photos and plays the piano you’re primed to see great talent. I guess I’m sick of the narrative around this bland woman.

  23. Harper says:

    Shallow and vain. Look at me! I have no talent, but I’m going to barge into this big event and do one of my Meghan outfits and hair and do five seconds on the piano. I want you all to see how happy I am so I will laugh and laugh to emphasize that. Also, this is a big surprise, because seeing me when you weren’t expecting to see me is the funniest thing. In fact, that’s another reason why I’m laughing, because I know you all will be laughing and screaming too when you see me. Meghan. Meghan. Meghan. Um, I mean Poor Ukraine.

  24. SarahCS says:

    Let me get this straight, the Ukrainian group performed in the metro – where Ukrainian people have sheltered from Russian bombs, and this waste of space puts on one of her thousands of fancy dresses and sits in her palace to play a bit and someone thought these were good optics?

    • Nic919 says:

      It was jarring because they did an overhead drone shot of Windsor castle before they showed her in a large music room with antiques whereas prior to that every other performer was outside.

      With all the posing and fake shits this likely counted as multiple engagements in the court circular.

      • SarahCS says:

        Just when I didn’t think it could be worse. Wow.

      • Christine says:

        I had the same thought. She’s actually going to pad her numbers with “piano practice”. I can’t get over the utter waste of space of this woman.

    • BeanieBean says:

      They filmed in the metro, but the inserts of ALW, Kate, and Joss Stone were in their home, castle, and studio, respectively.
      Seeing Kate here–surrounded by splendor–reminded me of Harry’s description of the getting together for dinner, with Kate dressed to the nines. She’s going to revel in that royal status as often as she can.

  25. Noor says:

    A 10 second piano playing.

    What’s the cost to the taxpayers. A lot of time and resources pour into this 10 second piano playing . What’s the impact beyond the personal glorification of Kate

    • First comment says:

      Yeah the cost for a 10 sec video is unthinkable:US$4,464.. unbelievable!!

  26. Tessa says:

    More fake piano playing probably dubbed and even if she hit wrong keys it can be redubbed.

  27. Niki says:

    This person and her PR machine live in an alternate universe where they think this is relevant. Her grin and wigs are alarming, scary like a 🤡 in the dark. Also, her insane obsession with Meghan is disturbing. She’s the dollar store version of Meg and should just accept it.

  28. Seraphina says:

    Eurovision is a great watch. And Will Farrell’s movie about it was hilarious to watch. Love seeing what the counties pull out for it.
    As for Kate, things will never change I fear. And I applaud those who booed her.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      LOVED the Eurovision movie. It is a hilarious love letter to what Eurovision is – and I loved all the cameos from actual Eurovision artists.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I’m so happy that the UK have finally taken picking the acts we send away from the BBC and given it to the music industry – we are showing the rest of Europe that yes we love Eurovision too and yes we want to win and have our entrants be taken seriously.

      That Netflix movie was just wonderful and I hope that it encourages more people outside of Europe to tune into the contest as it really is a wonderful event that is still very popular.

      Long live Eurovision!!!

    • Patricia says:

      This narcissist can do NOTHIMG for other people, no fund raising, no donations of het OWN money, nothing but me, me, me as the center of attention. Meghan is championing a group of mothers for today but not not Botox Barbie. She is disgusting with her overt selfish mess.

    • LeaTheFrench says:

      I love it too. It’s not a show that takes itself too seriously. It’s unreservedly bonkers, an over-the-top camp, chaotic, extravaganza, but strangely endearing. The artists give it their all, there’s warmth and there’s heart there. It’s also a show that is more inclusive than your standard pop serving. Bearded, Austrian Drag Queen Conchita Wurst won a decade ago, and that was not such a big surprise. Google “dancing lasha tumbai”, from a few Eurovision ago, and you’ll get a Ukrainian Drag Queen in her 60’s wearing white stockings and a vest made of tinfoil, singing in 4 langages, a song breaking keys too many times to count. Supposedly “lasha tumbai” means “whipped cream” in Indonesian, but the singer switched mid-song to “Russia Goodbye”. That song is an insult to music composition, yet endearing somehow. It would work nowhere else than Eurovision, too…

  29. Tessa says:

    Kate statement of solidarity is look at me. Of course dm puts her on the cover

  30. Amy Bee says:

    I don’t get this at all. This is lame. She’s barely playing in the video. It would have better if she went to the actual show.

  31. Kittenmom says:

    So she bought a brand new formal gown custom made to copykeen Meghan…to sit in her own house and play piano? And British taxpayers are good with this? 🤦🏻‍♀️

  32. Loretta says:

    Her “performance” lasted just a few seconds, so embarrassing LOL

    • sparrow says:

      I’m glad I missed the whole programme; if this had come on without my knowing, I’d probably have endured it. I don’t watch her out of embarrassment.

      • Nic919 says:

        I watched it on YouTube and because I was not sitting and watching it all but just listening, I didn’t even realize she had been a part of it until much later then it showed up on my Twitter timeline.

  33. ML says:

    Because of this site among others, I happen to know what Keen actually looks like. Last night, my husband did not recognize her at all. And let’s face it, this wasn’t the best “use” of Kate’s piano playing as this is not something she’s gifted in. Worse, the king and queen consort also briefly made it into Eurovision’s coverage of Liverpool. Considering this was supposed to be in Ukraine, and the Ukrainian group’s (Tvorchi’s) home city of Ternopil got attacked just before they performed is a terrible look.

    • Cecile730 says:

      Yes, they all are trying to get as famous and glamourous as Harry and Meghan but the more they try, the more the world see how stupid and out of touch they are. If I was from the other monarchies, I would stay far away from them….

  34. Alice says:

    What I don’t get about her copying of Meghan is she never improves on it. She never gets why something looked great when Meghan wore it. With the blue dress, it was the careful construction and sleekness. This ruffled mess is giving hostess gown vibes.

    • tamsin says:

      Kate is very literal in her copying, and how convenient that blue is one of the colours of the UKraine flag. Hence, the same colour and the hair parted on one side, and one shouldered bodice as Meghan’s dress. Meghan wore her dress at an NAACP award which is an organization that deals with serious issues. I’m not sure this Princess in her Castle image is great when UK is supposed to be going to bat for a country in the middle of a war and a humanitarian crisis. Kate’s appearance would just make Ukranians more aware of the awfulness of their current situation. It’s like someone eating cake in front of a starving person. And that dress draped over the piano bench was just a bit much for me. It distracts from the actual playing. C and C appearing, and Kate- it makes everyone think of the UK and forget why the contest is being held there in the first place. Kate’s idea of support is “let me get glammed up, and plunk a couple of chords on the piano- everyone will see how dramatic I can look and I’m a Princess, and I can grace you with my talent.

  35. sparrow says:

    I bit the bullet and went over to watch this on youtube. Bloody hell, it really is tiny seconds; a grade 5 three octave scale would’ve taken longer. What a waste of time. Does anyone remember that god awful “this is my moment” song? I bet she was tempted to bash that out!

  36. Beverley says:

    OfWilliam probably can’t wait til Tuesday when Meghan accepts another award and Kkkhate can finally add to her Meghan lookbook. Of course, Kkkhate will feel envy, anger, and jealousy when Meghan receives her award, but at least she’ll have a new outfit to copy. The Duchess hasn’t made many formal appearances lately, and the princess has been getting anxious for more fashion ideas.

  37. Elsa says:

    I have no problem with this. If she really can play, why not? Everyone says she can’t really play. Well. How do you know? Piano playing is morally neutral. Lots of kids get lessons. I get not liking Kate. But why give this hate?? It makes no sense to me.

    Wearing Meghan’s dress? Now that was weird.

    • Tessa says:

      The thing is she really can’t play. It is smoke and mirrors with her. And the other trouble is kate is way overjoyed. I enjoy going to concerts watching serious accomplished pianists. Kate just likes center stage and they are light years ahead of her to say the least. She should not pose as a piano player when she has no talent.

    • Lizzie says:

      Thi tip off to me is K8 is always prerecorded. Much like videos of her speaking, they have learned to prerecord and splice together a decent looking video. If she really plays well then she would play the piano live on a stage . More blatant pr.

    • Feeshalori says:

      Pounding out a few chords for a couple of seconds in a pre-recorded segment is all you get? Play the entire piece if you’re that accomplished. All that money wasted for yet another posturing at a piano.

    • Eurydice says:

      The only thing that bugs me a bit is that this isn’t really a “tribute” to Ukraine – it more like she’s inserting herself into other people’s misfortune, rather than helping them. It doesn’t really hurt Meghan if Kate copies her clothing, but it’s not good to take the attention away from Ukraine without giving something back.

    • sparrow says:

      Hi Elsa. I’ve all grades and up to diploma, deciding against music college at 18. I find it very stilted playing. I don’t know about others on here who play? She seems tentative at the keyboard and very ‘taught’. I suspect it’s nerves but also lack of exceptional/instinctive ability. Surely a life long passion would be documented. She must have some of the best teachers money can buy, which shocks me because this is basic output. It’s like her photography – always interesting to read the input of high level amateurs/professionals on here. I wonder whether Kate is so removed from the world that she believes she’s hugely talented and/or she is so innocent as to believe the flattery she gets? Perhaps those around her aren’t hugely educated or talented themselves. And let’s face it, someone teaching a member of the BRF isn’t going to put the breaks on his/her wish to perform in public.

      • sparrow says:

        brakes not breaks! trying to get the kids to do homework…like pulling teeth

      • Nic919 says:

        She plays like someone who took lessons for a few years as a child then stopped playing for decades until she realized she could use it for attention.

        There is more skill in children who have taken lessons for about three years. The Stefania piece is online and the music is super basic for anyone who is at an intermediate level of playing piano. She seems to have a hard time playing a few broken chords.

        I know someone referenced Grade 5 piano but either she barely passed or it is lower than the equivalent of Grade 5 piano at the Royal conservatory of music in canada. If you pass the grade 5 exam through the RCM you are playing pieces like Fur Elise.

        The easiest comparison is to just watch ALW play in the video and his facility with the music is obvious. Of course he is far more skilled.

    • Sid says:

      If Mrs. Wails could actually play the piano, we would have already been bombarded with her playing full pieces at every opportunity. KP and her BM buddies already love to “embiggen” the tiniest, most insignificant things that she does. You think if she actually was skilled they wouldn’t be crowing about it from the rooftops 24-7?

    • Blithe says:

      My issue is that the whole thing was about 10 seconds long, pre-recorded, with distracting and time consuming shots of her laughing, and a few moments of disembodied hands, an expensive dress, and carefully done hair — and it’s presented as a meaningful thing. I’m completely turned off by that. If, though, she were to visit a music school or a day care, or a senior center, and spontaneously played chopsticks with a student, or a show tune with seniors appreciatively bursting into song, I’d be applauding her for using her very basic skills to connect positively with people that she’s supposed to be serving. I’m not hating. I’m confused by the combination of embiggening and extravagance.

  38. Tessa says:

    The most most nauseating comments about this in dm consist of phrase William chose well.

    • Lady Digby says:

      Question is did TOB think he choose well? Harry bursts with pride at being with Meghan. Does Will feel lucky to have Kate as his wife showing off her piano skills?

      • Cecile730 says:

        No. Will let it slide because he needs it but he will dump her the moment of he think that he can get away with it.

  39. Over it says:

    I am sorry but if I were Meghan I would ask for a restraining order for my clothes . Lol. I know this isn’t a thing but Kate ain’t right in the head. Even the hair is identical. Same two tone blues . Same shoulder . This b-atch is not all right.

    • Rackel says:

      Same thought Over It. I became concerned like 2 years ago. Like it’s time for police or judge involvement. It’s too much and scary.

    • Beverley says:

      Over it, you are so right. She needs an intervention and therapy. It’s a damn shame that nobody – not her family or the Palace or her sh*t husband – will get her any help. Nobody in the press will tell the truth about her.

  40. Tessa says:

    I have this image of the singer in citizen kane foisted on the opera stage and his press would write glowing reviews. Kate fortunately is not going on the opera stage. But the UK media praise Kate to the skies in hitting a few chords in a pre recorded session. Why not give someone a real chance to play on these shows

    • BeanieBean says:

      Very apt comparison.

    • sparrow says:

      Tessa, that is a brilliant reference! I’ve read that BRF staff instruct the public to clap as a royal enters a venue, giving the idea that people are erupting into voluntary joy and applause at the mere sight of them. This is apparently very much the case with Charles. The way the tabloids treat Kate is indeed similar – she does something basic, we must find it remarkable. I wonder – and apols if it’s been reported – did Kate suggest this or was she approached? This is a very high house of cards they’re building for her.

  41. Isa says:

    She looks unhinged laughing at nothing. And idk how anyone can deny that she’s copying Meghan. It’s a obvious pattern.

  42. sparrow says:

    These past weeks she really does look like the cat that’s got the cream. But what cream? She has money that brings her comfort but no real freedom. She is scrutinised continually. Her marriage is complicated by the fact that should she want to divorce the press attention would hound her for life; better to be in the possibly cheating tent than out. She can’t retire. And worse, to me, she has landed her kids in this same limited world. They will be at the end of a camera lens all their lives. They’ll be getting the best education but to what ends? The options open to most children, particularly those of wealth and connection, won’t be easily open to them. I can’t imagine the three of them will be able to be doctors, lawyers, teachers, commercial pilots, or equally check out assistants, delivery drivers, painter decorators. The attention, security (affecting colleagues, as well) and performance anxiety will be huge. Their future relationships will be splashed across the media. For people with money, they are one of the most restricted families on the planet.

    • Lady Digby says:

      After reading Spare and seeing how the 3 kids are already been exploited by the Firm, my concern is indeed for George, Charlotte and Louis being forced to perform in public without the option of saying No. #Abolish the monarchy and free the Windsor Three!

    • Bee says:

      The best education will be available to them. Who knows if they’ll take advantage (or be able to take advantage) of it. This family as a whole seems to look down on education, or at least not appreciate it. They look down on almost everything else, so it’s a safe guess. And we know that Harry wasn’t supported in learning until he got into the military, where his talents were recognized and supported.

    • Lee says:

      You might be surprised that she loves her life and all the so called restrictions that come with it, and as for cheating, if true…..these people don’t have the same problem with infidelity like most of us. I think she’s doing just fine.

  43. QuiteContrary says:

    This also has “I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille” vibes.

    She is a mess.

  44. aquarius64 says:

    Kate iangetring calles out for faking her piano recital. Apparently actually pianists are stating her hand position on the piano keys do not match the note a being heard.

      I find it curious that they would even want Kate playing piano in the same video as Andrew Lloyd Webber playing video. Did she think she did as well, or better? Did her team hear that ALW was playing a part in this video & insist they add her too?

    • Rackel says:

      I noticed her faking it during the 2022 Christmas recital. I was surprised she wasn’t called out. This years didn’t sound that good so I 60% thought she played it. Its probably son george or sister Pippa.

    Ok that is a great pic.

    Go sit down Kate, and give some of the other ladies a chance, you have delighted us quite long enough.

    Haven’t checked the news on this yet, but assume that UK are pulling their usual sour grapes performance and whining that nobody voted for them because Europe is mean and doesn’t like them?

  47. Rachael says:

    I think nobody voted for UK this year because the song was terrible, and so was the performance. I’m still astounded that Finland got 2nd. WTF? And why did Germany not get top slot with their bonkers metal-esque weirdness and 1-legged pleather onsie?
    Side note – I also booed Kate.

    Was discussing Hate with someone and he said exactly the same thing. He actually said “she’s an empty vessel isn’t she?”
    So it’s being noticed even by people who could care less about the BRF.
    Was there any warning she was going to pop up on the Eurovision? This was the first year I didn’t watch and that would’ve ruined it for me as I normally head for the blood pressure pills when she gets rammed down our throats.
    Maybe there is indeed something wrong with her and she’s been prescribed but isn’t taking meds as some will cos a big weight gain.
    Either way the Eurovision committee should be asked why -in the middle of a financial, energy and housing crisis a middle aged woman with no substance, fake hair, more than three or four houses, and wearing a bloody ball gown- was allowed to troll the British public? The organisers have allowed this woman to make a mockery not only of Ukraine but Britain and Europe also.

    • The Recluse says:

      And this critter has a degree in Art, right? Right?
      She could have built up a substantial career being the Royal Family’s ambassador to art. She could have hosted actual documentaries on the art collections of the BRF and on England as well. That she hasn’t done any of these things says she lacks the interest, the intelligence and the talent to do so.
      Also, the only other thing I noticed via the Bird app about this competition was when Poe Poe Poe trended. Let’s hear it for Eddie!

    Narcissistic Khate behaves as though she is superior to everyone else. All criticism is probably translated into others being jealous of her. Intruding into Eurovision with her very ordinary piano playing is odd, it appears that she has watched too many princess movies and actually believes them to be the same as real life. Cosplaying Meghan, Diana and the European Royals is freakish. Happily being a very determined and relentless stalker of William for at least 10 years does not translate into her being a long suffering victim. Her being portrayed as the constant victim is just a ploy for more attention, no one ever considers that the woman is the abuser not the man. Tough as nails, she became the last woman standing. She may have passed the royal physical tests to produce heirs, her mediocrity and unwillingness to work, except to find a camera lens, is remarkable.

    • Bee says:

      In this case, Kate is certainly abusive. But saying “the woman is the abuser, *not the man*” is rather far-fetched in this situation. Her only power derives from Willy’s goodwill. And we know that is in extremely short supply, and always has been.

    I don’t pay attention to Eurovision since it seems so oddball to me and it seems ABBA is the only really superstar act to come out of it. Apart from that, the top of Kate’s dress very much looks like Meghan’s blue NAACP awards dress, no matter how you parse it. If I were the designer, I’d be pissed at Jenny Packham for lifting my design. Between this, and getting McQueen’s designer to slag off the Givenchy bridesmaids dresses, she seems to make designers compromise professional principles to dress her. Her self-serving performance was more for her own benefit than for Ukraine. I don’t know anything about piano playing so can’t comment on that. It seems her and Will are doing the most since this Coronation to get attention and still obsessing over people who don’t work with them who live 5000+ miles away. So now the royals want to be reality tv stars. This is how Britain wants their heads of state representing them?OK then.

    I think the fact that Kate is always 2nd place Vs Meghan in all the categories is literally making her mad/crazy. As I mentioned in my other post, a few days ago there was a study of Twitter users around the world on which BRF has the most sex appeal – in this result Meghan has more sex appeal than Kate based on how many times “sexy” was tweeted . Kate wasn’t even in the top 5. Basically William, Meghan and Harry were the top 3. Kate was down the list number 7. HM also topped WK on who’s the sexiest couple in the BRF in the same Twitter study.
    From studies a couple years ago. On intelligence, again Meghan comes out on top out of all of the BRF members. On Beauty , based on golden ratio of beauty (according to Ancient Greek rules), Meghan tops Kate.
    It prob didn’t help that even without Megan there in the coronation, Kate had to share with Katy Perry on who created the the highest social media value. Although it didn’t mention explicitly , from looking at the numbers, Katy Perry actually took the top spot from Kate(of course they don’t want to overshadow a British royal member in a very British event).
    I mean some can say these are silly studies but SM has really changed the world in influencing so many brands nowadays. For someone like Kate who strives to be the center attention , I’m sure these things hurt her ego .. lol…
    Btw.. their advisors are still amateurish. The PR they did for Eurovision and American Idol all screams Desperation. They need to do better than this to create a dent in being “influential” these days and it takes Hard Work not a few secs to pretend to play the piano. You’re talking to the Z and soon to be A generation here .. 😊

    So all they could salvage of this was 19 seconds of mediocre footage? LOL

  53. Lee says:

    Well the people who matter most to them, the British monarchists are lapping it up, alongside their new sleek content, so it works I guess.

  54. clare says:

    I don’t think she was actually booed at the event – there is no evidence online anywhere??

  55. Linney says:

    I am shocked by this video. First, this is supposed to be a tribute to Ukraine with its war torn buildings and conditions. And it opens with an overhead of Windsor Castle? Then we move to the guffawing glammed up woman in an ornate room. Now we get to hear a few notes by someone who clearly is a very basic piano player. Who came up with this? She made a complete fool of herself and showed incredible insensitivity to the people of Ukraine. I mean, does the situation there warrant her laughing at nothing? Many people have negatively commented in the British press, but I can’t believe the way so many articles are pushing her as the most perfect, brilliant woman in the world.
