Princess Kate ‘torpedoed’ the Invictus Games with her wig & copykeening in France

Here are some photos of the Princess of Wales in France on Saturday, where she attended a Rugby World Cup match between England and Argentina (England won). The match was held at the Stade Velodrome. From what I’ve seen, there was little to no buzz or energy about Kate and William’s travels to France and I have no idea if they even traveled together. The streets are saying that they flew separately on different private planes, but nary a whisper of that in the British media. Kate appeared solo at this match, because she’s the royal patron of the English team. As you can see, Kate got all dolled up for the appearance – instead of that cheap-looking half-wig that she usually staples to the back of her head, she did loose waves and some choppy pieces framing her face. The hairstyle makes her look years younger. I think her white suit is a McQueen repeat. Her jewelry here is Mappin and Webb, some of her most-frequently worn pieces. And yes, as always, this was a psychotic copykeening of Meghan – at last year’s Invictus Games, Meghan wore a white Valentino suit and small, delicate jewelry. Kate even styled her wig like Meghan’s hair.

Make no mistake, Kate and William’s separate appearances were scheduled specifically to try to “steal” Prince Harry’s thunder at Invictus. This is all being called a huge win in monarchist media, because apparently Kate’s new wig and an appearance on Mike Tindall’s podcast is somehow “torpedoing” the Invictus Games. So you’re saying that William and Kate are so lazy and pathetic that the only thing that gets them to work is their desperate and vile attempts to overshadow Harry and wounded warriors? From Tom Sykes at the Daily Beast:

The message from the Prince and Princess of Wales’ office Saturday was “Two can play at that game,” as William and Kate torpedoed Harry’s launch of the Invictus Games with the release of a podcast featuring them and Princess Anne.

Saturday’s Invictus launch represented the culmination of two years of work for Harry, and he duly delivered a rousing speech at the opening ceremony in Germany. Harry said: “You, and your families, are once again part of a team, surrounded by people who know what it means to serve, who have a good idea of what it’s taken to get here, who see and know you, and who respect you through a shared experience.

“This year’s Games is a Home for Respect. Think about that word for a second. Respect. What does it mean to you? What does it look like? What does it feel like? Some people may act as if respect is something veterans are asking for; that people with injuries – whether visible or invisible – have to demonstrate they are worthy of it.”

He added: “These games are not solely about medals, PBs or finishing lines—they are about overcoming any and all perceptions that have held you back, especially those you’ve placed on yourselves. Because all of this, all of us—are here because of you.
“This isn’t a gift. This isn’t a handout. This is yours. Take it.”

It was a pivotal moment for Harry, widely seen as a last chance to detoxify and relaunch his brand. And yet, just hours earlier, William and Kate released their headline-grabbing podcast of themselves, together with Anne, chatting to her son-in-law, Mike Tindall, and two other hosts, for Mike’s sports podcast, The Good, The Bad and The Rugby.

To cap the resultant flood of coverage overshadowing the launch of the Invictus Games, a glowing Kate showed up at England’s first game against France in Paris in a stunning white Alexander McQueen suit Saturday night. This is likely to be a very, very sweet moment for William and Kate, after several years of deliberate and public humiliation at the hands of Harry in their bitter internecine war.

[From The Daily Beast]

Over the past few years, I’ve come around to the idea that not only is William racist, angry and violent, he’s also incredibly stupid. Kate is too, although I would also describe her as “sly.” It’s incredibly stupid for William and Kate to not just be this openly desperate, pathetic, insecure and jealous, but to then UNDERLINE it and declare themselves the victors. To send their people out to declare victory because they’re making asses out of themselves in an attempt to overshadow Harry and Invictus. My God.

    This copying is reach levels that are truly embarrassing. And that Kate has no shame is troubling. Hilarious too, but mainly troubling. Copying Meghan won’t make her better just crazier.

    • Someone needs to tell her that copying is the highest form of flattery. If she knew that maybe she would stop but I won’t hold my breath.

      • LaraK says:

        She’s getting really good at it too. For a second I thought it was Meg and I thought “why does Meg suddenly look 15 years older, and freezedried?”

    • swaz says:

      The PRINCESS OF WALES is copying and wants to be a black girl 🤣🤣🤣 I guess we all try to please our husbands 🤣🤣🤣

    • DK says:

      Weirdly (fittingly?) she looks just like Lindsey Lohan in Mean Girls in that last pic…

    • Emme says:

      Khate has never seen a camera she doesn’t pose for…..

      • Lorelei says:

        That is SO MUCH HAIR, my god. It isn’t as obvious in the frontal shots, but in the ones of her sitting down…she reminds me slightly of Animal from the Muppets with that mop.

        How many extensions does she have? Or is this just a full-on wig?!

      • Princessk says:

        That was the first thing i noticed. Always looking for the camera. Is she going to keep doing that if she does get to be Queen? Evidence that she really is not interested in substance.

    • TheFarmer'sWife says:

      It’s not the obvious copying of her SIL that bothers me–it’s that she and her husband are/were actively trying to take attention away from veterans. Real-life, rightly deserve to wear the uniform, service men and women who gave up parts of themselves, either physically and/or mentally, for their country. What kind of person would want to even try to upstage the Invictus Games? These two are a sorry excuse for whatever it means to be royal.

      • nona93 says:

        The Royals display copious insignias and medals on their chests on all public occasions yet I understand that only Harry and Andrew have fought on the front line, Harry especially fought twice in Afghanistan flying Apache helicopters and mixing with his mates in constant danger. Petal, uncle Edward, the Duke of Edinburgh only lasted a few short weeks training in the military before quitting because he didn’t ‘fit in’.
        C S Lewis who was was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day wrote in his book ‘Mere Christianity’.. “As an Infantryman in the first world war, I have had a great dislike of people who, themselves, in ease and safety, issue exhortations to men in the front line.”
        The despicable and childish attempt to drown out Harry’s Invictus Games with their Royal podcast on sport in the safety and luxury of Windsor Castle ?
        Join the dots.

    • holly says:

      Kate ALWAYS knows where the cameras are

  2. Jais says:

    The hair. The circle pendant necklace. The white suit. Wtf is wrong with her. Psychotic copying is right. No shame.

    • Startup Spouse says:

      I have no doubt Kauliflower does this because she’s a psycho. But do you think the courtiers allow it so the BM can write articles either comparing the two women’s outfits (thus keeping Kauliflower in the news bc otherwise she’s a snooze fest) or claiming that Meghan is copying Kauliflower? So there’s a purpose to doing this so blatantly?

      • Jais says:

        Definitely part of it is getting her in the news. Getting those side by sides with Meghan and erasing Meghan’s personal style. At this point, though, these are Kate’s choices. Don’t think she even has a personal assistant right now. The last one she had quit in January and we haven’t heard of a new one. Kate finds some kind of sick satisfaction in copying Meghan. I’m not even kidding when I say that this kind of behavior makes me think restraining order.

      • seaflower says:

        I’d sa it’s building towards a narrative of K thinking she’s superceding Meghan (“anything M can do, I can do better” coupled with “Look at me Harry!”), but importantly from W’s people it’s about freezing her out (“look, we all know she’s an unstable stalker.” and “He is much better off as a single father/the kids are better off with him”).

    • Becks1 says:

      It’s really really extreme. The hair is what takes it over the edge for me.

      Meghan wore that white Valentino in the Hague, right? And Kate wore a white suit to the commonwealth games in Birmingham which was a few months after that. that was an obvious copy but this look is even more egregious in my opinion because the hair seems a more deliberate copy. Yes she wore the looser waves in Birmingham but this is just such a more extreme copy.

      WTF is wrong with her?

      • Jais says:

        There’s something creepy too about the fact that this is exactly one year after Meghan showed up to invictus in that white suit, necklace, and loose waves hair. Creepy stalking behavior. I really can’t get over it. It’s fr disturbing. So yeah again WTF is wrong with her.

      • Becks1 says:

        Well, M wore this outfit in the Hague so it wasn’t a year ago (the Hague games were April 2022), but it definitely reads like Kate thought “invictus – Meghan – must wear white suit!!!”

      • Jais says:

        Lordy, you’re right. Okay, not one year😂 but yeah it evokes the last IG when Meghan actually wore the original.

      • Becks1 says:

        100% it evokes the last IG. I thought it was bad when Kate wore the white suit to Birmingham. But I think these pants are different (looser) and more similar to Meghan’s, and the hair and jewelry are just next level. Like Elizabeth Holmes said, if you follow royal fashion, how do you not see it?!?!

      • girl_ninja says:

        “The hair is what takes it over the edge for me.” Same! @Becks1 Like what are you DOING? She has NEVER worn her hair in this style. She really is so petty and weird about this obsession with Duchess Meghan. Even one of Kates biggest fan girls Elizabeth Holmes pointed out the obvious copying on her Instagram. But that fool will still Stan her because she finds Kate aspirational in some way.

      • BeanieBean says:

        WTF is wrong with her but also, WTF is wrong with Tom Sykes? That article is unhinged.

      • Cee says:

        Meghan first wore a white pant suit in Feb 2023
        Kate wore her first ever pant suit in March 2022

        Meghan wore this same exact style for the IG last year and now Kate, a year later, decided to wear Meghan, because she isn’t just copying her style she just decided to be Meghan.

      • Nic919 says:

        This is a pattern that has happened for years. She initially copied Jecca’s style but that wasn’t covered as much because it was pre engagement. She then shifted to Diana once the engagement was official, starting with the blue dress. The target has since changed to Meghan, with elements of Diana and the queen, but this is not a well balanced person.

        The necklace and hairstyle and loose trousers really confirm she’s a weird stalker.

      • Ripley says:

        I mean… this is straight up crazy pants.

    • MJM says:

      Kate is not psychotic or mentally ill. She copies because she is a jealous racist who is trying to erase her black sister-in-law Meghan. It is deliberate and extremely nasty.

      • Tessa says:

        Kate is a mean girl who plays victim
        She could have denied the story to the media. Kate taking threatening steps to Meghan shows how horribly Kate behaves. Very phony. She was called out on Twitter for the way she acted to meghan.

      • Lorelei says:

        For a fleeting moment I wondered if any of this could be not copying but coincidental, but @Nic, after reading your comment, I realized you’re exactly right, it’s just that when she copies Diana’s clothing, the press calls it a “sweet tribute” but when she copies Meghan’s, they ignore it.

        Does she not have ONE PERSON in her life — that one blonde friend who shows up at her birthday every year, Pippa, someone — who can tell her how unhinged she looks copying M like this? She doesn’t have a single person who actually has her best interests at heart, someone who she trusts to give her good advice and tell her the truth?

      • Gabby says:

        Yes, a mean jealous racist. I think when you compare Waity to Wills, she may be the more evil of the two.

    • First comment says:

      For a moment there, I was confused..I truly thought it was Meghan…I seriously believe that she even has cosmetic surgery to her face so as to look like Meghan apart the hair, clothes and accessories she copies… she’s morphed in to Meghan! The desperation!!

    • SunnyDays says:

      This is so shocking, even for her. I understand she obsessively takes notes on Meghan’s outfits, hair, etc and often copies her but THIS is something else.

      How does she not feel absolutely ridiculous doing this? And she chose an Invictus look from last year to wear at a hastily put together event during this year’s Games? It screams “We are completely obsessed with you, think about you day and night, plan our entire lives around you”…just WOW.

  3. JayBlue says:

    I honestly read these posts just to roll my eyes. It’s the only exercise I get some days.

  4. StellainNH says:

    Trying to overshadow wounded veterans…so pathetic

    • Chloe says:

      I mean this was clearly pre-arranged with the media. Schedule an appearance the exact moment as Invictus, then agree with the paper editors to put it on the frontpage, then columnist call in a “win” because use & less grabbed the headlines instead of Harry.

      And yet Harry’s speech has more views than that little podcast episode. At least they tried.

      • Ginger says:

        Harry gets dragged by the British media for visiting his grandmother’s grave because it took away from William and Kate but W&K get praised for trying to take away from Invictus. It’s ridiculous. W&K are in a one sided war and are losing.

      • Christine says:

        Agreed, Ginger.

        Their maniacal need to always have the British press proclaiming them the victors after every stunt is shockingly pathetic. Seriously, have a little self respect.

        Same goes for the British media, bowing and scraping along behind the tatters of any dignity the British royal family ever possessed.

        All of this to cut down a glorious week of events to support injured military from around the globe is appalling. Shame on all of you.

    • SussexWatcher says:

      This. Plus the fact that no one in the royal family even congratulated the British Invictus team or wished them well or anything is absolutely disgusting and so, so pathetic. They dress up in fake medals and uniforms they didn’t earn and prance around like utter fools but then completely ignore the IG because it’s Harry’s baby.

      I can’t wait for the day when it’s gloves off with the media that knows all their secrets.

      • Chloe says:

        @sussexwatcher: the fact that they kept silent regarding the UK Invictus team doesn’t surprise me. I mean look at how they treat the veteran in their own family?(Harry)

        The only thing Charles and William like about the military is that it makes them look important. They could care less about anything else. Plus they don’t want any sort of attention on IG

      • Startup Spouse says:


        This is the most egregious part. They cosplay in their military uniforms and unearned “medals” but refuse to acknowledge the British Invictus VETERANS. It’s just so offensive.

      • BXGIRL says:

        I noticed the royal family wasn’t mentioned in wishing the British team good luck,William dragged charlotte to videotape a “good luck” wish,but nothing for countryman/women who served ???

        Truly sad….

      • Lorelei says:

        IMO it is inexcusable for the BRF to stay silent and not even give a shout-out to the British competitors in the IG because they’re mad at Harry.

        Charles is their Commander in Chief, for god’s sake! Grow the fck up, put your personal BS aside and do the right thing for once in your sad little life. It makes them look so, so petty and honestly just cruel at a certain point.

        The Fail is furious that Joe Biden wasn’t at Ground Zero for the memorials today, but *not a word* about not only the BRF failing to mention the British veterans who are competing, but actively trying to claim that W&K are “outdoing” them. Outdoing INJURED VETERANS. Not one editor sees what a poor light this puts the entire family in?

      • Feeshalori says:

        WTH does the British media have any business poking their nose over the attendees at an American event? VP Kamala Harris attended the memorial today as the president’s representative, and that’s perfectly acceptable. They really have it out for Biden. They need to be furious over the disrespectful Royals, who aren’t saying a peep about Invictus. It’s crickets from everyone and the stupidity has reached maximum level.

    • Brassy Rebel says:

      Thinking you will look good by trying (and failing) to overshadow wounded veterans during their games tells us how truly disgusting the royals and their media sycophants are.

      • Libra says:

        Amen to this. I am too riled up about this disrespectful slap in the face to veterans that echoing your sentiments is the best I can do.

      • BeanieBean says:

        That, that right there. That’s the most appalling thing about all of this.

    • Taytanish says:

      All I’m gonna say about all this nonsense is that Kate nor any of the rest of them, can NEVER torpedo anything Sussex related, NEVER EVER. And I’m so embarrassed for Thomas Sykes for writing this stupidness, I couldn’t even read any of it.

    • Abby says:

      RIGHT? Do they know how bad this looks? Why would you try to overshadow wounded veterans.

    • ariel says:

      This is the part that gets me.
      How do they not understand that crapping on an event for wounded veterans is- not a good look for the monarchy- with all of their shiny metals and “honorary” military appointments.

      It is appalling.
      Just their lack of support for their team is appalling.

      Huge miscalculation. In a rush to be petty and hurt the man who left them for a better life- they crap on war veterans?

  5. MrsCope says:

    IG is a global game with defense ministries and secretaries from all over the world attending. Harry is sitting at the adults table talking sports, business military service, and veteran recovery and you lot sat on a family podcast talking about beer pong and night swimming. What a shame.

    • Sue E Generis says:

      Then seriously patting themselves on the back that they ‘torpedoed’ the Invictus Games.

    • Lorelei says:

      I know this is pointless but I can’t help it at this point— my mind immediately goes to how the BM would have absolutely SKEWERED Meghan if she’d talked publicly about playing beer pong anywhere. She’d be called trashy and they’d insert it into any article they could forever, just to remind people how trashy she is. Yet for their regal English rose, it’s a cute anecdote for that idiot Shrek’s podcast.

  6. Anna says:

    The level of Single White Femaling happening with Kate’s look is truly insane omg

    • Kim says:

      Right? The fact that she dressed as a Meghan clone from the last invictus games while the current Invictus games are happening is so creepy. Obviously she’s copied Meghan before, but the totality of this look and the timing is psychotic.

    • Grandma Susan says:

      It always creeps me out that she always knows *exactly* where the cameras are and makes sure she stares directly at the lens. Still, her “mean girl face” is becoming more apparent.

  7. Haylie says:

    That’s not the beach waves wig taking tears off Kate’s face. That’s photoshop and Facetune. We saw what her bumpy lumpy face looks like for real at that seaweed farm.

    • sparrow says:

      Exactly. Why are people so fooled? What she looks like is what we see on her more realistic, albeit still photoshopped, outdoor visits around the UK. When the truer pictures are released, her tabloid fans are shocked but pass it off as Kate being exhaused by the demands of childcare or some such nonsense. The pictures taken of her at the few lockdown events she undertook were jarring – she was obviously without her hair pieces and her face was like it really is. She’s an attractive English woman of her class; there are thousands out there. She wasn’t a great beauty growing up. Like a courtier said, you wouldn’t look twice at her if she walked past you in the street. One unusual thing is how badly she’s aged.

  8. Kristen from MA says:

    Is she looking at herself on the monitors in these pictures? She has an air of (unwarranted) self satisfaction.

    • JanetDR says:

      I can’t imagine what else she could be looking at. She’s awfully tan too…
      How stupid to compare the splendid opening of the IG with appearing on a relatives podcast 🙄

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      She’s back at twirling her hair at public events – she used to do it a lot, I remember her at one Cenotaph event where she was photographed looking bored while twirling her hair around her fingers. She got called out on SM about it and then I think after that started wearing her hair up to V day commemoration events.

    • KFG says:

      She is satisfied because she really believes she can wear Meghan better than Meghan. Those photos are obviously filtered and photoshopped. Her coloring is all wrong.
      What makes this sinister is that she is so insane she really believes she can dress vs work and people will love her. She’s crazy

    • BeanieBean says:

      She’s surrounded by men. Granted, middle-aged men, but she gets to be queen of the day within their midst.

  9. Oh_Hey says:

    They succeeded in looking stupid by sending out people to confirm their one “stepping on Harry’s press cycle” nonsense.

    And no one else cares or is talking about this by the way. I know about invictus because it had a whole Netflix special and the news is talking about it. I would never have heard about these two pulling their heads out of the sand and “working” if this site didn’t tell me lol.

  10. ML says:

    All of these pictures are grainy and out of focus. Did nobody notice that?

    • seaflower says:

      I’d say photoshop or facetune were over used, especially when you compare her to the faces next to her. They don’t look as sharp/grainy.

      • sparrow says:

        the halo effect – she’s the only one photoshopped full beat

      • Tarte au Citron says:

        William’s myopic pettiness strikes again.

        As FFK, he has completely forgotten that British veterans fought in the name of his grandmother, and now serve his father.

        I don’t keep on top of the various military patronages, but I’m sure he has some.
        He’s thick enough to look those soldiers in the face and not realise that they’ll always remember how he treated their veteran / injured colleagues.

        How easy it would have been for him to wish the British Invictus team well.

    • Becks1 says:

      Chris Jackson is covering Invictus, so Kate’s working with a different photographer here lol.

  11. Niki says:

    I feel like she needs outpatient treatment to deal with her seething jealousy and undeniable obsession.

  12. Maxine Branch says:

    Invictus is helping to facilitate the rehabilitation of Veterans from around the world and these folks actually believe they are competing with this global initiative. Perhaps the gutter British press thinks so but globally this outing does not merit any attention. Düsseldorf has upped the anti for how these games should be showcased, mad props to them. The Wales’s need to take several seats, they are pathetic.

    • Well Wisher says:

      The British veterans non-profit for Invictus Games is one of the RF, they have been no announcement cheering them on just stuff from the Wales’.

      The lack of professionalism is astounding, but unsurprising…

  13. Maxine Branch says:

    • seaflower says:

      And Sth Korea and Italy are already talking about wanting to bid for hosting the games.

      • Well Wisher says:

        This is in direct contrast in the once august commonwealth Games in its present form….
        No one want to host it, although England is one state in the CW…

  14. LadyE says:

    The Royal Family and the BM seems to have completely given up on even pretending that Kate and William are international or global figures. “Headline-grabbing podcast”?? Where did this grab headlines? In the UK tabloids? Perhaps. I will give them that and they can have it. It certainly did not in the US, nary a peep. Mike Tindall’s podcast and apparently the RF are a local, at most national (and then little Britain only), possible newsmaker. Hey RF, there was a festival at my State Fair this weekend!! It also “grabbed” local headlines from H and the Invictus Games! ; )-

    • Sue E Generis says:

      I was wondering about this. Did they really even manage to ‘grab headlines’ in the UK? Or even the tabloids?

      • LadyE says:

        I really don’t think so. Though, People had a whole series of articles about the podcast, Kate at the rugby game and something else. Nothing on Invictus Games. People has gone so so far down the trash lane, it is sad. Their new “Royal” person is clearly in BP/KP’s pocket. An hour later, all the Kate/podcast stories were gone. So, I’m guessing they didn’t get any traffic. I didn’t click on them to avoid giving views so I don’t know what the spin was.

  15. Lizzie says:

    Did this stunt get picked up outside of the British tabloids? I saw Harry on cnn and cbs, but zilch about the lazy duo. Harry still overshadowed them.

  16. Layla says:

    I saw a post on Twitter for Meghan about this desperate behaviour that I really liked which said “I don’t worry about people copying me. Their next move can’t be made until I made mine” which is absolutely true. As is evidenced with exhibit a , k and her team will be needing watching Meghan’s appearance at the IG games they’ll make PowerPoint slides and mood boards of her looks and try to tweak them so that k will have plausible deniability when she copykeen them weeks/months down the line

    • Sunday says:

      exactly. don’t get me wrong, Kate maniacally copying Meghan is disgusting, petty, hateful, and racist, but it’s also incredibly self-defeating. So Kate managed to wear something her sister in law wore, and copy her hair. Meghan still wore it better, every single time, so all Kate has truly achieved is managing to expose herself as a total psycho. Meghan gets to wear whatever she wants and pick out any outfit she likes, probably laughing to herself about how or when Kate will try this one out.

      Again, what Kate’s doing is f*cked up, but it’s SO obvious that she just makes herself look crazy. I like to think this all started when Meghan politely declined Kate’s “fashion contacts” as Harry told us in Spare – Kate is such a passive aggressive mean girl I can totally picture her saying ‘fine, Meghan won’t wear anything from MY fashion contacts? I’ll wear every f*cking thing she does’. lol

      • Sue E Generis says:

        I honestly don’t think Meghan is aware of Kate except as part of an unpleasant experience she had years ago.

      • Jais says:

        Omg, I forgot about Kate being upset bc she thought Meghan wanted her fashion contacts! Yeaaah, all the copy keening makes that seem really unlikely.

      • Lorelei says:

        IF Meghan is aware of it — and by now I’d think someone must have pointed it out to her, and she probably had a good laugh — I hope she continues to wear things like slinky silver skirts for the sole purpose of thwarting Kate.

        (Meghan likely isn’t that petty, but I sure am!)

      • SIde Eye says:

        Her fashion contracts lol – to think Meghan missed out on the chance to dress like a sister wife in ugly coat dresses slash headmistress at Ms. McButtons Pilgrim School for Girls!

      • Feeshalori says:

        Oh, boy, if I were Meghan, I would deliberately wear clothing that she knows would look absolutely fabulous on her and a fashion tragedy on Kate.

      • Christine says:

        That’s how I feel about Meghan’s gold dress at the award ceremony the night the media stalked them for hours. No way sister wife is pulling that one off.

      • Debbie says:

        Oh, my God. I never heard about this “fashion contacts” thing before. It tells me that Kate was well aware that Meghan had a different style than she did. Kate knows that, when she joined the royal family, she changed her style so that she would dress more like people would expect of the wife of William, even if she had to dress William’s mom. When Meghan joined, there wasn’t a such a sharp turn fashion-wise, Meghan still managed to maintain her own style. So, Kate must have been thinking, why don’t you follow in my footsteps? That way, Kate could feel superior like she somehow led the way, and she could also get headlines saying that Meghan was copying her coatdresses. When Meghan said “Thanks, but no thanks” and relied on her own viewpoint, Kate must have thought, “Damn, you can do that?” No wonder she now keeps following Meghan’s footsteps.

      Layla exactly! And that was Meghan 18 months ago, she’s not pulling out a white suit this week.

      Other funny thing : Kate wore her December Xmas coat in 30 degrees the other day and now she’s pulled out a high summer suit. That’s a head scratcher.

  17. SussexWatcher says:

    Single white female alert! 👀

    The hilarity of them thinking “two can play at that game.” First of all, Pegs and Buttons McCopykeen are the only ones playing whatever competition they’ve created in their own deluded baby brains. Second, Harry and Meghan are winning without even playing their bullshit “games!” Who is the couple that people flock to see and give standing ovations to? The Sussexes. Who is the couple working hard and changing lives? Sussexes. Who is the couple happy, in love, living their best life, and shaking their ass at a Beyoncé concert? Harry and Meghan.

    You just can’t compete where you don’t compare. The Wailses need to just sit down and be happy with their Little Britain adoration and the asskissing from the Leftover Royals below them in the pecking order. Bahaha Bully Tindall’s podcast…who give a crap?!

  18. amyb says:

    Even Elizabeth Holmes who I have sideyed in the past over some her alliances (see the Emily Griffin incident) givea CopyKate a dressing down for the obvious channeling of Meghan.

    • L84Tea says:

      I had to go and look after seeing this. Oh yeah, when even EH is at a loss for words at the Meghan styling, it’s bad.

    • Steph says:

      Any link to the Elizabeth Holmes comments? Twitter is only giving me Theranos lady.

      • L84Tea says:

        It’s in her Instagram stories. But here is a link to a screenshot of it:

        For a Wales stan like EH to go this hard on Kate about her copykeening, it’s reached a new level.

      • TangerineTree says:

        Thanks for the link L84Tea
        While Holmes does drag KopyKate, she still lies and says K had this McQueen white pant suit before Meghan wore her Valentino suit, which is not true. Kate copied M.
        Sycophant Holmes points out the copying and still gives Kate an out – that’s how low the bar is for KopyKate.

      • VilleRose says:

        If you google “Elizabeth Holmes royals”, you’ll find her easily. She published a book sometime ago about the Queen’s fashion along with Kate and Meghan (and maybe Camilla?).

      • Lorelei says:

        Thank you for the link! Yeah, EH is a *major* Kate fangirl, so when even she can’t refrain from bringing it up, you know it’s gotten bad.

      • Jais says:

        @tangerinetree, EH says that Kate had this white Valentino suit before Meghan? I really do not recall her ever wearing a white suit pre-Meghan wearing one. Am I wrong?

      • Becks1 says:

        @JaisWKW lists this as McQueen, unclear if its the white blazer first worn in the Caribbean or what she wore for the Windrush event last fall (those trousers seem to match here.)

        But we never saw her wear a pantsuit, period, before Meghan. The closest I can remember is when she wore a white blazer with cropped pants and dark red pumps in Canada, I think after Charlotte was born.

      • Jais says:

        Thx becks1. I felt like I was 99% sure that was the case. Idk. It’s weird. When people want to deny the copykeening it makes me feel crazy.

    • VilleRose says:

      I only started following Elizabeth Holmes more recently and I don’t know what the general consensus on her is. But I think she is struggling to remain a fangirl of the Wales. Even she had to say something about the Wales’s long 7 week summer break from public view and made a poll asking her followers what they thought of it. She’s worked as a journalist so she knows how it works behind the scenes and some of her commentary about royal articles has been very insightful to me. As far as I know, she has never directly put down Meghan or Harry or said anything that would constitute as being nasty for just being nasty’s sake. But I think she is starting to realize she can’t just constantly heap praise on Kate because… the lady does nothing. And when regular news is criticizing the Wales, you can’t just ignore that.

      She can try to ignore Kate’s copycat tendencies but not when it’s so blatant as this.

  19. L84Tea says:

    The hair, the makeup, the jewelry, the suit. I think she basically told her hair stylist, “I want the full 2022 Meghan at the Invictus Games today, please.” I mean, head to toe Meghan. Kate likely finds this behavior satisfyingly catty, but good God, someone needs to do an intervention because she is coming off more and more crazy. This whole look is next level WTF.

    • Eurydice says:

      The only way Kate could copy even more is to wear darker face makeup.

      • Magdalena says:

        She already used something very close to “darkface” during one of the new (at the time) Sandringham Zoom sessions. Not only had the background and her own personal styling changed to look very similar to Meghan’s, but there was Kate looking darker than anyone had ever seen her look before.

      • Eurydice says:

        @Magdalena – Omg, next she’ll be saying she’s part Nigerian.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Eurydice, it does look like she’s wearing a hefty amount of bronzer here. We know she’s not that tan because we just saw her a couple of days ago, on the deathiversay.

      • SIde Eye says:

        Lol right? She’s already looking more olive skinned with the spray tan and bronzer. I can’t wait until she veers into Trump makeup or full on Ariana Grande blackfishing territory. Lip injections – you’re up next!

        I gotta say I love seeing her make such an ass out of herself to copy her Black SIL. It’s been the gift that keeps on giving!

    • RoyalBlue says:

      If Catty keeps doing this, she will be playing catch up forever. Never the leader, always the follower. Silly rabbit.

  20. Rai says:

    What baffled me about the article is the full throated admiration for Harry’s speech followed up with the nonsense conversation on the podcast. Thus negating the entire premise of the article.

    The disconnect is baffling.

    • equality says:

      Yeah. Most of the article is quoting PH. I also find it hard to believe that the Kate who is wearing long sleeves during the summer seeks out cold water to bathe in.

    • SussexWatcher says:

      I wonder if they know their royal overlords won’t allow them to just write a straight up article praising the Invictus Games or Harry for the job he’s done, so they have to frame it in this absurd Keen won the day way. Because it is weird how much of Harry’s speech is quoted (although I didn’t read the original article).

      • Becks1 says:

        I think this is part of the. The RRs have been given their orders not to cover IG in a positive way, if at all. So here we have Tom Sykes insisting that the podcast and rugby appearance torpedoed the IG opening weekend…..and then he spends paragraphs talking about how well the opening weekend went, Harry’s speech, etc.

        It’s important to remember I think that Tom Sykes is closer to Richard Palmer than someone like Tominey – meaning pre H&M, he was actually fairly critical of W&K. And while he clearly really dislikes Meghan especially, which is most likely rooted in racism, I do think a lot of H&M dislike (as a couple) is because H&M walked away from the aristocratic system that Sykes is a part of. So now while he does write unhinged essays against H&M, not everything he says about W&K is actually helping them or making them look good. This article does not make W&K look good. His article the other day about William being furious that Harry went to see his grandmother’s grave because something something helicopter something Wales – did not make W&K look good. And I think he knows what he’s doing.

        Remember his line about being told he heard about the Rose affair from a daughter of an earl. That article was all about how good his sources are, AND it reminded everyone about the Rose affair.

      • Harper says:

        Tom Bradby got torpedoed out of the royal circle by William for staying friends with Harry, so Sykes does what he has to do to keep those KP phone lines open.

      • Nic919 says:

        @becks1 I think your analysis of Sykes is spot on. He doesn’t like W and K but treads close to the line as much as he can without being cut off.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        “Remember his line about being told he heard about the Rose affair from a daughter of an earl.”

        I know it wasn’t, but wouldn’t it be just hilarious if that was Lady Louise? Her father was Earl of Wessex at the time.

    • GiGi says:

      So the article featured quality substance about Harry BUT empty headlines and words relating to the P & PoW. Will their office be happy about this hit piece?
      From an SEO perspective, the way how the piece is written shows search for Harry’s speech are driving traffic & he is using that to spread pettiness. But honestly, it makes HRH PoW look bad.

      From where I am sitting- Harry & IG coverage has been global & positive. Also as the BM were not covering the last 3 days it allowed the positive to rise and regular British people are commenting & sharing his speech in support. Plus, The bi-lateral meetings taking place @ IG , shows that at this point, H, M & IG are above KPs level. I don’t think H&M + IG are even thinking of winning a coverage “war” with KP. I think IG have migrated to another level – like NATO level. They are not concerned about daily beast anymore.
      & this highlights the biggest misconception the BM & KP & wider RF holds – they always operate as if each other are their competitor with the prize being BM coverage/headlines – That’s why true legacy is rare – only the Duke of Edinburgh prize + The Prince’s Trust are true legacies and now Invictus Games. All 3 men behind these were restless and felt called to do something of value – put aside what we think of KC3 & marriages- he was driven to make a mark while he was PoW & the same for Prince Phillip – he wanted to do something & one of the briefings against Harry was he had too many ideas & annoyed the staff.

      I saw some of Kate’s biggest American supporters – ones with media cache expressing disappointment in her choosing to dress exactly like Meg at the Rugby game. It’s playing so wrong.

      I think KP keep missing the mark. They are motivated by the wrong things.

      Also Tom’s readership must be down, his last couple of pieces are more erratic & National Enquiry like.

      The PoW needs to realise he started thinking about his legacy too late. With the exception of Travelyst & Archewell – all Harry’s projects are decades old. That speaks volumes to an American & audience in republic countries.

      Ahhh bless the team at KP. They have long way to go to find their purpose, like most of us really.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Becks, ITA about Sykes. But I do believe that W&K are stupid enough to think this portrays them positively — all they’ll see is they’re the “winners!” — and the same with Sykes’s last column (we could start referring to his “columns” as “tantrums” and it would still be accurate).

  21. Miranda says:

    William and Kate are the all-time champs of doing the unequivocally WRONG thing and being so goddamn proud of it. Who the hell thinks it’s a good look to even attempt to overshadow wounded vets reclaiming their independence through sport and showing incredible determination?

  22. Jan says:

    Kate’s favorite photographer is at the Invictus Games, they gave out 600 press passes, you can bet that the British press was not one of the lucky 600, although BBC is streaming the games.

  23. Mamasan says:

    Who the hell wears white to a rugby game?

  24. They have won nothing. They have not overshadowed the Invictus games. She continues to make an ass out of herself that is all. Just look at the man she is mumbling to. He has this look of oh my god please just shut up. She try’s to copy Meg but can never pull it off because Meg is beautiful inside and out and Can’t is just not.

  25. MsIam says:

    Tom Sykes is trolling the Wails now. He quotes parts of Harry’s speech, calling it rousing. And he knows that Kate in a while suit is going to bring comparisons of Meghan in her white suit last year. And WanK along with Anne is not torpedoing anything. Harry stepping out the door of the chapel managed to overshadow all of the Royals so yeah, bye girl bye. Sykes is making the Wails look desperate.

    • Eurydice says:

      Yes, definite trolling – my thought was “with a friend like this, who needs enemies?”

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      Yep! Not a fan of Sykes or the The DB. This is trolling on the WanKs and BM. I read it like it was an Onion article.

  26. Izzy says:

    Those palace loons have a very different definition of “torpedoed.” The only thing I knew about the podcast is that people were rightfully calling it out, saying that once again they were doing something that Meghan was maligned for. Rules for thee but not for me. I hadn’t even heard about the subjects they had discussed on the podcast.

    Harry and the Invictus Games, on the other hand, were everywhere.

    • BeanieBean says:

      They are the people who talked about ‘torpedoing’ bridges–they’re making up their own definitions at this point!

  27. Jais says:

    Again, Sykes is doing them no favors here. The whole “two can play at this game” is so juvenile. Like that’s the attitude coming from the heir and his wife. That’s embarrassing. Classy would have been KP at the very least issuing a good luck statement to the IG participants. Doesn’t even have to mention Harry. Idc if they do podcasts and go to rugby games. They should be doing things. But doing them and then saying haha we torpedoed you. They’re determined to make themselves out to be horrible people.

    • MelodyM says:

      Well, it’s not like they even have to try to make themselves look bad…it’s their talent, lol!

  28. Harper says:

    She is doing this copy catting as a big eff you to Meghan and Harry because she hates her life. How to make being sent solo to a rugby match tolerable? Why, I’ll taunt Meghan by pretending I’m her at last year’s IG but the tabs will only focus on and praise my re-wear of a McQueen.

    Even some of her own supporters are saying WTH? Why is she doing this so blatantly?

  29. Eurydice says:

    Hmmm, if the goal was to overshadow Harry, then maybe Sykes shouldn’t have used the first 5 paragraphs of the article talking about him and quoting his speech. But if the goal was to show W&K as a couple of middle school idiots, then success.

    The copykeening has reached creep territory. Next, we’ll see William in an Hermes tie and shiny suit.

  30. Cassie says:

    Yep Kate wearing a white pants suit to a Rugby game is just so appropriate .😂

    She looks like the wicked witch , such an evil face .

  31. Becks1 says:

    Again, the desperation coming from KP is obvious. Nothing was “torpedoed.” Barely anyone paid attention to the podcast besides the beer pong comment, and even then it was a muted response. Her appearance at the rugby match only got coverage bc the british press was trying so desperately to overshadow Harry.

    So, their attempt failed…..but how sad that it WAS an attempt? How sad that W&K are so insecure, so petty, so smallminded, that they were trying to overshadow an event like Invictus because its Harry’s?

    • Eurydice says:

      Even more sad than the attempt was that they had to announce it was an attempt. The piece could have been about the Rugby World Cup, a quote from the patron about the English team, something about France – anything to make it look like Kate was there to represent as Princess of Wales. Instead, they say out loud and in public that the only reason they do anything is to compete with Harry and Meghan. This is weird, even by W&K’s standards.

    • Debbie says:

      The Wailes are aided and abetted by the BM who praise (and share) their baser instincts. So, why should the Wailes change their conduct?

      • Becks1 says:

        Because they are desperate to be taken seriously on the world stage, and instead they are being viewed as more and more….well, desperate….on that world stage.

    • Nic919 says:

      They are so insular too. Invictus Games are getting international coverage on multiple major networks. This podcast is only been listened to by people who support the BRF and even then likely not the senior crowd who don’t know how podcasts work.

      • Lorelei says:

        Exactly— we’ve gotten so many articles about how William wants to be taken seriously as a “statesman.” Then all he does is release scathing statements about how much he hates his little brother, and only comes back from a months-long vacation to do an event the one day that Harry is in the UK.

        The British press isn’t doing him any favors with the fawning coverage. He might think he’s got the dream set-up going on with the media, but serious people see right through it and he will never be considered a “statesman,” he’s far too juvenile and pathetic.

        Besides, the only time William garners major headlines is when he makes a faux pas— joking about COVID, skipping the Lionesses’ match, etc. He is so unpopular that he only ever trends on Twitter for negative reasons. People LOVE to skewer him, and he makes it so easy for them. It’s so funny.

  32. sparrow says:

    Does anyone else remember those kids’ coulouring books with cut out women’s bodies and tabbed dresses to attach for a different look? Kate’s like one of those – she wears a new look; turns up; smiles and goes. There’s no charisma or wow factor; worse, there’s no interest in others or drive – given the chance she’d rather be at home. Kate is only what she looks like. For a woman who ‘won’ because she was prepared not to overshadow her husband, a la Diana, she’s now continually shoved front and centre because the BRF has nothing else to weaponise. How Kate appears is therefore fundamental, which is a problem: if you are judged only on your appearance, then that is all the public have to talk about; spend too much and their focus will land on the cost of your family. And if you are only what you look like, the pressure to live up to the photoshopped unreality of an attractive yet aged woman of her type is immense. The future of the BRF is literally being hung on Kate’s shoulders, much like paper dresses. What a fundamentally a reductive position to be in.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Sparrow, it’s a HORRIBLE position to be in, since Kate cannot stop the aging process. Chris Jackson really did her no favors by photoshopping her so heavily for so long, because inevitably, now she’s a disappointment when people meet her IRL. And it’s only going to worsen the older she gets.

      Kate really didn’t think this through…I’m sure it seemed great at the beginning, when she was a newlywed and there was so much scrutiny on her, but as she ages, the gap between what her photos look like and what she *actually* looks like is going to widen dramatically, and she’s going to up sh!t’s creek without a paddle.

      She (or her handlers) should have had the foresight to just allow photos to be released as-is, or with very light photoshopping, since she will be in the public eye for the rest of her life, for decades. Because now she’s screwed.

      • sparrow says:

        Hi Lorelei. Exactly. There’s such a gap between her real and her photo’d self. A while back there was a series of photos which were more lightly edited. And, yes, she looked old but she also looked more refreshing – something like a visit to a hospital. Someone pointed out that her usual photographer (Jackson, as you say) hadn’t taken the photos. The royal family has to appear, day in day out, at some function or other, working but not working at projects where they just turn up, get looked at and scrutinsed over. She not only has the skin type to age badly but also the stress to age badly. imo she was the one who got Jackson to start down this road; she has always looked older than she is and probably felt from the get go that she had to do somethng about it. Don’t envy her lifestyle at all.

      • Becks1 says:

        The late Queen and Anne never got/get comments about looking older than they are, etc, because they always just….look like themselves. And when you see someone age every day, its not as obvious. Anne is 72 (I think? Maybe 73?) and looks it but not necessarily in a bad way, it just is what it is.

        The only royal that I think is aging poorly is Camilla, and a lifetime of sun, cigarettes and booze will do that to you.

        Kate likes to be photoshopped and she likes her face touched up with botox etc but at some point the truth makes free and she just needs to accept that and let the aging happen.

      • EveV says:

        These pictures don’t even look like the normal Photoshop. It looks like someone literally took a blurring tool or something just as heavy handed. It bugs me how she’s always looking at the camera, always just performing for the camera.
        I do think Sykes was being very facetious here, and he knows this just makes them look worse.

  33. Lizzie says:

    Everything about this screams losers, desperate losers. How are morning shows not mocking Will and Kate?

  34. Digital Unicorn says:

    Am in the UK and this is the first I’ve seen of these insane cosplaying photos of her. Its all been about Harry visiting his grand parents grave, Invictus (and the rock star welcome he got) and the Wails sad/insulting visit to Wales (plus a few screen shots/clips of that painful podcast).

    Even her cosplaying ain’t cutting the press attention cake any more.

    Plus, she’s had her face touched up – she does look better when it has that puffiness, it gives her a fuller face look.

    • sparrow says:

      Digital Unicorn you’re obviously someone who does the sensible and ethical thing of not looking at the sewer sheet DM. Their coverage of Kate at the rugby has been wall to wall; they even managed to put out a nasty rehash of Meghan’s supposed poor behaviour with the royal aides at the Windsor flowers (which just shows how much they are in KP’s pocket and desperate to deflect attention from Harry). The UK’s broadsheet media has been far more enthusiastic about Harry and invictus, which is why venturing over to the DM site always makes me feel ashamed of myself!

  35. Krista says:

    Man, she really knows where those cameras are, eh?

  36. Loretta says:

    “This is likely to be a very, very sweet moment for William and Kate, after several years of deliberate and public humiliation at the hands of Harry in their bitter internecine war”

    This Is so cringe and embarassing.

  37. Eliora says:

    Pathetic doesn’t even begin to describe it. How are Kate and William this sad and soulless. Trying to overshadow an event meant to honor and celebrate veterans is beyound disgusting. That said, I didn’t actually hear or see any news reports about William and Kate’s movements this past weekend to include the podcast. Theirs must be very local news indeed, where as Invictus is receiving international news coverage.

    Also, I don’t think it’s the hairstyle that is making Kate look less haggard than usual, it’s the botox. Her outfit is cute for a Meghan dupe. Glad to see Kate admitting that Meghan is a style icon and the better woman. Stay pressed Princess copyCat.

  38. Noor says:

    Tom don’t be silly , don’t be ridiculous. A mere podcast and Kate’s attendance at a rugby match cannot torpedoed Prince Harry’s Olympic style Invictus Games for wounded soldiers and veterans.

    The podcast contains nothing newsworthy, no new initiatives. It begs the question why the Prince of Wales is supporting and using Windsor Castle for Mike Tindal’s commercial and profit driven podcast. It all smacked of cozy cronyism and nepotism since Mike is Princess Anne’s son-in-law and he is not a working royal.

    • Tessa says:

      Mike is annoying. Kate was very smarmy during the interview.

      • Lorelei says:

        I couldn’t get past how far apart W&K were sitting from each other, on the same sofa. One or two other people could have comfortably sat between them. It was bizarre! Even Mike’s rugby bros were sitting closer together than they were.

    • Debbie says:

      Don’t tell me they’re comingling commercial ventures with the royal by using Windsor Castle to stage a for-profit podcast and having Kate participate on there as well. Gee, I thought that was all too modern and crass and one either had to be all in or all out? All of a sudden, anything goes though.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      It’s such a great look for the prince and princess of Wales to do a podcast with their by marriage relative that had no problem groping another woman at a bar while watching a midget throwing contest. But, beer pong, they’re so relatable! MFERS

      I guess W & K hold midget throwing contests in greater esteem than the Invictus Games for military veterans. Doubt they played beer pong. More like crack baby pong. That’s how they roll.

  39. windyriver says:

    These people are so so bizarre. Will had the perfect opportunity for his moment alone in the news cycle with an important event – the WWC. The queen of Spain was there for heaven’s sake, it was a high profile opportunity. Harry wasn’t in the news, HOI hadn’t been released yet. All Will had to do was get on a plane to Australia, watch some of the matches and (with luck) the final, be photographed supporting the team that the whole UK was behind. Easy peasy. Did he even meet with the team after they came home? Apparently something only matters if he’s directly competing with Harry? Stupid stupid man.

    Really no words for what Kate’s doing. That woman is not well.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Nope – he has yet to do or say anything publicly since they came home. There was nothing more from him after his pathetic tweet on the result.

      • Becks1 says:

        I’ve been seeing some chatter on social media that the team did not want to meet with him.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I can imagine that esp given all the photos we’ve gotten of him all over the England mens rugby team – before and after the game.

        He has shown us that he’s a horrible sexist misogynist. We won’t forget!!!

      • Feeshalori says:

        Becks1, if that’s true, good for the team for holding onto their integrity and refusing to suck up to an unsupportive misogynist loser.

      • Lorelei says:

        Good! I hope the Lionesses refuse to meet with him. He doesn’t deserve even a post-match photo op with them. Good for them if this is true.

  40. Tina says:

    They are all such losers. They act like the Uk is the entire world. Of course William and Kate get the attention in the UK that is the way the system is designed. But outside the UK???? It’s all Harry and the Invictus Games. As it should be.

    • P says:

      What do you mean outside the UK? Because I live outside the Uk and the o my mentions I get about IG are here and by royal fans on twitter.

      • equality says:

        Where outside the UK do you live, because I’ve seen plenty of coverage in the US? I would hope that any country with teams competing in IG would be covering and supporting their veterans. So does your country not have a team competing?

      • Becks1 says:

        I’m in the US and IG has been covered by CNN, People, the armed forces twitter handles (which makes sense), etc. It’s definitely getting coverage. Is it on the same scale as the Olympics? Of course not. But it is getting international coverage, especially Harry’s speech.

      • Christine says:

        CBS news is doing a good job posting all of the events on youtube, it’s so much better than the coverage last year.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @P, this am, to my complete delight, my local news station shared the Harry penalty kick clip and mentioned the Invictus Games. The people on the station were delighted about the whole thing. I was shocked yet happy. No mentions of the Wank’s.

  41. MSTJ says:

    Optics and insight: Chris Jackson, their personal and favorite KP photographer (Getty Images) and husband of Kate’s stylist /dresser went to photograph the Sussexes at the Invictus Games instead of Kate and William on their France excursions. Says to me the Sussex event will garner him the attention that will fetch him more £££ over the Wales events. Added possible reason for him being at IG, to spy and report back to KP – go figure. 🤷‍♀️

    IMO William and Kate feed off of Harry and Meghan. The British tabloids need the Spare in the picture to facilitate the royal soak opera. Thankfully the Sussexes are away from the toxic royal mafia family/institutions and can thrive doing what they enjoy and are financially independent in the USA. 😇

    • Debbie says:

      How do we know that Chris Jackson is not at Invictus to take photographs and use them on behalf of Kate and William? Whatever he’s been doing to Kate’s photos, he could easily do the reverse once Meghan arrives, I’ve seen the BM alter Meghan’s pictures for the worse before.

      • Steph says:

        @Debbie, if he assisted Meghan in that way he’d look terrible and lose opportunities. There are so many other photographers there that it would be obvious.

      • Christine says:

        I said the same thing upthread, Debbie. Kitty has proven who she is, and she is exactly the kind of person who would send a photographer to get unflattering photos of her sister in law.

    • SURE says:

      H has used CJ for the IG since it’s inception.

      • MSTJ says:

        H is no longer a working royal. Chris usually photographs Kate and William’s engagement yet he chose Harry’s event over Will and Kate’s. IMO that’s odd considering how KP operates. They draw lines (deny access) for people who have any association with the Sussexes. As noted Chris’ wife is Kate’s stylist hence she travels with her on her overseas engagements and Chris who is their official photographer chose to attend IG instead. Just odd. 🧐

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Jackson has covered pretty much every IG since its inception and he also does a lot of work with Sentabale (outside of events that Harry attends). While he maybe the Wails favourite photographer, he works both sides as it benefits him and his work. Also if he turned down jobs am sure Getty has a thousand other photographers that they can give the royal work to – so if he wants to keep his creds and access he goes where Getty tells him to as without a legit media agency backing him he wouldn’t have the kind of access he does.

      • MSTJ says:

        Where the toxic royal mafia institution/family is concerned, I usually have a very healthy dose of skepticism about anything that happens with them and people closely connected with them. Consequently, after your feedback, I figured I should look into how Getty Images works to figure out if Chris would have to go where Getty Images sends him or not. He does not. He chose to go to IG to photograph the Sussexes instead of France to photograph the Waleses which I think is odd considering his close association with the Waleses and KP as I noted earlier. 🧐 My healthy skepticism ⁉️

        Here’s what I found:
        While working with Getty, you are either a contributor or a client. To be a contributor, you have to be over 18 and be able to submit original photos, videos, illustrations or vectors. Once you create a free account you can log in and start uploading content. Once your content gets approved, you can choose to donate it or make it exclusive. Exclusive photos earn you money, and you can track your earnings every time a client purchases your content usage rights. Getty images pays you every time your content is picked for use by clients.



      • Becks1 says:

        Jackson is not there to sabotage Meghan. Once he was accused by the derangers of photoshopping a picture of Meghan (you all know the one, a black and white of M on Remembrance Sunday on the balcony with a large black hat) and he came out on social media and said he didn’t touch the picture up at all, it was just that kind of shot where everything – light, subject, etc – comes together in a perfect way.

        I don’t think he’s ever publicly admitted to not photoshopping Kate.

      • MSTJ says:

        The to reasons I noted in previous comment for speculating about him choosing IG over the France Rugby matches were £££ (i.e. photos more financially beneficial for him) or spying on behalf of the Wales since his wife is Kate’s stylist. To reiterate I usually have a very healthy dose of skepticism about anything that happens with them and people closely connected with them. 🤷‍♀️ After all, considering the headline of this blog story is “Princess Kate torpedoes the Invictus Games with ….” his presence at IG encourages skepticism of their intentions. ⁉️

  42. tamsin says:

    Beyond a doubt, everything William and Kate do is about THEM. They don’t really care about the homeless, the climate, the early years. They are merely issues that give them a purpose for their existence, opportunities to promote themselves, and be seen as people of substance, and for Kate to wear new clothes, jewellery, and to pose for the cameras. Well, just “playing” at this game of one-up manship proves beyond a doubt that they are NOT people of substance, and do not move in the world to help others. They could have just gone to support their teams, which is their job, and the UK press and sports networks would have covered it. There was no need for this bitter and childish competition. As Gabe said on CBS, the Invictus Games is not about Harry, it’s about “us” the veterans healing themselves and being functioning members of their communities. To try to take focus away from veterans demonstrating physical and mental courage, some from the UK, is disgraceful. To imply that veterans and their struggles are less important than Kate and William making public appearances and talking about themselves in a local podcast is more important is disgraceful. They prove beyond a doubt that they live in their own little world because The Invictus Games got their due attention. Or did they not notice that?

  43. Beech says:

    This is very nah nah nah nah boo boo. I saw some of the podcast Saturday night on YouTube. Anne was impressive, Willy and Kate were useless. It was clearly clear to see the dead animal perched on the back of her head. She kept tossing her hair which was funny. I used to do that when I was 12 and thought I looked hot. Yeah I was 12 and a poser. What’s her excuse.

    • sparrow says:

      And will her left eyebrow ever come down? She tosses her hair about because, imo, she doesn’t want it settling too much – could settle into a clearly marked hair piece position. Should the public ever find out her hair is faked up, or should it one day get ripped out by accident, there will be total shock and a sense of outrage. Kate’s so shallowy percieved that her hair is pretty much what she is .

    • Pam says:

      I am clearly clueless but really want to know how you all know that Kate dons the wigs. When did it start and how can you tell?
      On another note, this was such an extreme copy! I try not to hate on W & K but they increasingly make it difficult.

      • Debbie says:

        I’m hardly an expert myself but once someone left a link to a Daily Fail article about the secret to how Kate keeps her locks so luscious. The article included a photo of Kate seated in a car and the photographer zoomed in on Kate’s profile, which showed a track of hair where her own hair was not well-blended.

      • Becks1 says:

        In the podcast pics it’s really obvious. You can see a clear line from the crown of her head that separates the winglet from her natural hair.

  44. Amy Bee says:

    There counterprogramming couldn’t be more obvious. Anybody denying this are deluded. I saw a few royal fashion bloggers pointing out that Kate was cosplaying Meghan. William and Kate are truly desperate and stupid.

  45. Tessa says:

    Kate’s hair is messy looking the ends need a good trim. And she has those odd expressions.

    • Angie says:

      Her hair is messy at the ends because she is trying to copy Meghan’s California girl style of messy hair and is failing.🤣

  46. sparrow says:

    Wasn’t this look effectively what Meghan wore to invictus last year? Very strange and actually a very obvious message to send to everyone; although imo she actually wants to send the message to Meghan more than anyone else. She’s a strange one – imagine not caring how obvious your jealousy is. And at her age. This is playground stuff. She kind of makes a mockery of her position, which is meant to be one of dignfied service, not one of playing envy games.

  47. Laura D says:

    I saw the photos yesterday and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. She might have just got away with the suit because the jackets are different. However, copying the necklace and the hair was scary. Her appearance took the cosplaying of Meghan to a whole new level. The only thing I can think of is that SHE is trying to create a “who wore it better?” narrative. Her projects are really just photo-ops, she’s not the best public speaker so, the only thing she can do to get people talking is to copy the woman whose life she made an absolute misery.

    If she is deliberately trying to create cosplaying as a new narrative then it’s failing because people are openly accusing her of copying. Her stans might fall for it but, what they (and Princess Karen) have to remember is there’s yet to be a photo where Meghan has worn/copied an outfit Princess Karen wore first.

  48. SAS says:

    Argh that creepy straight to camera look every time!

    She looks good here, (as would I if I’d just been on holidays for six weeks) but this has got to be in her top 3 copykeens of all time.

  49. Sunshine says:

    Can someone explain to me why media, like vogue, bazaar, etc and fashion houses don’t call her out on this psychotic behavior?

    • sparrow says:

      Good question. Because she’s a money spinner. She did the Vogue cover. Harper’s an upper middle class and beyond publication – desperate to maintain its access and appeal to established sets. Remember how KP fought back when Tatler went after her. No one wants to rock the boat. Also, imo there’s a gleeful disrespect of Meghan as a very stylish template.

      • Sunshine says:

        But she’s not a money spinner.
        Apart from the sycophants, everyone complains whenever she’s posted.
        Her “British” Vogue cover was the worst selling the 15 years ago she covered it. And even then she was cosplaying Peggy’s ex.
        So I ask again. Why do they not call her out?

    • Jais says:

      Yeah I’d love a real piece analyzing this blatant behavior. Nothing cutesy like Meghan inspires Kate! Or both duchesses wear white! but something real like Why is Kate Middleton a SWF and does Meghan need a restraining order to deal with her royal stalker? I can only guess they don’t call her out bc they want access to future royal things idk?

      • Lorelei says:

        The excuse for more than a decade now for never criticizing them, ever, is to “maintain access” — but this is hilarious to me because there’s really nothing to access! It’s not as if they give interviews…it’s all just photo ops. Which any publication could still purchase from the wire services or whatever, even if KP “banned” them from personally attending. It’s so stupid.

  50. HennyO says:

    I wonder if a*s-licking royal ‘reporters’ at these gossip mags, like Tom Sykes and Jack Royston, who write these kinds of laughable commissioned royal gloating pieces, mainly about William and Kate, aren’t embarrassed and ashamed of themselves.

    How does one, with these kind of pathetic drivel attached to their names, ever become employable in any other branche in journalism?

  51. Cel2495 says:

    Lol! These people are pathetic ! They can’t win and must accept that. Plus WTF is wrong with her left eyebrow? It’s going to fly away from her face.

    Also , she doesn’t look young and fresh… that’s photoshop , we know her haggard face without it while Meghan just looks 10 yrs younger. She is trying to copy Meghan and failing every time.

  52. JP says:

    I don’t know if she’s past the point of being able to stop, because it will be so dramatic a change when the fillers dissolve, but she’s reaching Kardashian level face tweaking.

  53. Reign says:

    We aren’t going to talk about her refreshed face?

  54. ShazBot says:

    If I were Charles (or his people) I’d release a statement saying Heart of Invictus was inspirational, call out by name the UK team in it (Tom and the wheelchair rugby team) and congratulate them, and then send wishes to the current UK team at Invictus right now.

    • Christine says:

      Yeah, Chuck has a moment here to come out looking good. No idea if he will recognize the moment and act, but he’s sure got one.

  55. AMTC says:

    For the love of God, these people hold very senior positions as leaders in the UK Defence Forces (as we all get to see at Trooping the Colour etc) and they think that devising a media strategy to take attention away from veterans competing in the Invictus Games is a win? And that Harry only uses IG as a vehicle to promote himself? Beam me up Scotty.

    • Lorelei says:

      It’s really unbelievable. That not even the aides can see the bigger picture here, and know that taking the high road is what would really benefit the king long-term, instead of allowing him to let his petty personal dramas interfere with his role as CiC.

      And they don’t even need to mention Harry! Keep the focus on the British competitors! But they’re so blinded by envy that they can’t even do that. It would still be, in a roundabout way, giving credit to Harry, and well, they can’t have that.

  56. aquarius64 says:

    The Princess of Fails strike again. Copying Meghan’s look from last year’s IG. I didn’t see the podcast but from what I gathered it was Operation Damage Control for William being MIA for the World Cup final. Trying to step on IG brought home the fact the royals with unearned military titles didn’t support the British vets. King Charles as Commander in Chief is the most egregious.

  57. Libra says:

    Think about the positive PR they could have had if all the senior royals made a congratulatory video to all the competing athletes. Now that would have been classy, a word not usually associated with the RF.

  58. ChattyCath says:

    She has never developed emotionally beyond the spiteful jealous little girl she once was. Abnormally emotionally dependent on her mother who hasn’t an intelligent thought in her head apparently. Maybe the pair of them have been given ‘notice to quit’ and the divorce is happening or has happened. Nothing to lose.

  59. Sunday says:

    I don’t understand, was the plan here to “torpedo” Invictus by copying Meghan so blatantly and completely that Harry gets confused and thinks his wife is in France and goes to meet her instead of opening the games?

    Right now Will and Kate are essentially two children sent upstairs so the grown-ups can have a dinner party, and Kate is throwing a ridiculous tantrum but everyone just goes right on enjoying the party.

    It’s just absolutely pathetic and yes *deranged* that this is how the Prince and Princess of Wales are conducting themselves around the 1-yr anniversary of the loss of the queen. Add the detail that if they had actually succeeded in beating Harry in their little 1-sided war of jealousy and had actually “torpedoed” the success of Invictus, it would’ve had the side effect of also “torpedoing” a philanthropic event for wounded veterans and the efforts to prevent veteran su*cide. Just absolutely vile. Stupid and evil is a terrible combination.

  60. Mary Pester says:

    So we had the good (possibly Anne) the bald, sorry, bad and the fking ugly. Every time kateykins attends an event she is so ugly in character that she has to TRY to copy Megan, fail kateykins, epic fail. You don’t have the figure or poise to pull it off! Rats tails at the end of your hair peice and tell me katey dear, were you standing up so the cameras could get a better shot, or were those trousers giving you a camel toe. Oh and neither you or your incandescent husband could torpedo invictus, not even from a royal navy submarine, deal with it losers

  61. s808 says:

    That lady is an obsessed weirdo and I pray Meghan never has to be within 20 ft of her again.

  62. Jensa says:

    Honestly, these people just haven’t a clue.
    Fancy thinking that “torpedoing”* the Invictus Games is a good thing to aim for – rather than, say, petty and vindictive. And fancy being so blinded by your obsessive need for vengeance (or whatever it is) that you want to undermine a genuinely great cause like that. I mean, all she’s doing is attending a rugby tournament. And how does this stance look to the various military patronages she has – or has everyone forgotten about those?
    (* And of course, she didn’t “torpedo” it – as if.)
    Still, it was quite amusing to see her attempting to demonstrate knowledge of rugby when she spoke to the rugby players. Hopeless!

    • Lorelei says:

      I didn’t even think of that, but you’re right— the fact that W&K were given those military patronages makes this SO MUCH worse. JFC what is wrong with them??

  63. Purley Pot says:

    I hope one of these days while she is twirling that hair the wiglet comes off in her hand.

    • ChattyCath says:

      @Purley Pot that’s so funny! But maybe it’s cemented on or ‘woven’. Her hair is even more unlikely considering her weight loss and looming menopause.

  64. ThatsNotOkay says:

    What do you expect from a woman who’s only ever been praised for her hair? But her hair is now thinning, so she must augment it in any way she possibly can, because she’s still seeking validation from someone—anyone—about the only thing others have valued her for. When someone new—a woman—steps on the scene and is valued for her intelligence, eloquence, verve, fashion, beauty, AND hair, well, it’s go time! Can’t have anyone competing with her for her “crowning glory.” Must wear other person’s skin to feel loved.

  65. Kingston says:

    I don’t really like commenting on thread with this pathetic creatures as the subject but this one was too hilarious to ignore.

    First of all, let’s not get too caught up on wondering what’s her endgame in so blatantly coping her superior SIL. Rmbr, most women with a public profile ed not be caught dead wearing an outfit that another woman wore before her. And especially not a whole season later. So this biish is already a laughing stock.

    But also, don’t forget that she used to copy the old queen then she moved on to copying her dead MIL. And before that she copied bully’s girlfriend, jecca.

    So no…..this biish has no endgame in coping M; it’s nothing so negarious as wanting to ‘erase’ M because thstd an imposible tasks. I hear that on Twitter, even some if the nastiest critica of M in service to lkkHATE, are lambasting her for this latest copycat episode.

    As someone said on Twitter, shamelessness is kkkHate’s super power…..da biish has nothing else to do and nothing else going on for her than to engage in mischief. It’s how she comes with a life of tedium.

  66. Over it says:

    The way she is directly looking at the cameras while single white copying her black sister in law and trying to steal focus from people who gives their lives and limbs for her to have the chance to sit there and watch this game is disturbing. Kate should really really seek help

  67. Marivic says:

    The world doesn’t take Kate and William seriously. All their tours are a flop which they and the U.K. royal rotas cannot accept and admit to themselves. No matter how much the rotas embiggen these two lazies, they cannot compare and compete with Harry and Meghan in terms of global impact and relevance.

  68. Kingston says:

    *copes…..copes with a life of tedium.

  69. Lau says:

    The fact that they are comparing these appearances with the Invictus Games is pathetic and offensive. Also every time the camera was on her, kate seemed to looooove seeing herself on screen.

    • Unblinkered says:

      It is offensive. And I’m surprised to see Princess Anne involved, I thought better of her. I wonder if she was deceived about the timing that it was going live. Tindall is a known twit, wonder how much money he made from the publicity?

  70. Chantal says:

    Since Special K is so hell bent on copying Madam M, I would love for Meghan to show up with corn rows and dare Special K to copy that!

    The word pathetic doesn’t even begin to describe the Rotten Family of losers. At this point, a good was kicking would be the only thing to straighten out the fame hungry Wails. Can’t believe C-Rex is looking at this sh*tshow and thinking “mission accomplished” …

    • MsIam says:

      I hope Meghan wears nothing but Invictus swag the whole time and dares Keen to copy that. I bet she would demand that William commission a closet full of Earthsh*t gear for her to wear.

  71. Jaded says:

    I wish Sykes would stop with this OTT spinning. No Tom, there wasn’t “a flood of coverage overshadowing the launch of the Invictus Games”. Nobody gives 2 sh*ts about the WanK’s visit to separate rugby games or Tindall’s lame podcast. All it does is point out the painful truth that the WanKs are separated. Oh, and BTW Mr. Earthsh*t, taking 2 private jets back and forth is not good optics.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Nothing says “living separately” like each of them taking a private plane…to the same country on the same weekend!

  72. Marivic says:

    She really looks rough.

  73. Sunny O says:

    The podcast is not being reported very much from what I can tell.

    I wouldn’t have heard about the podcast if Tom Sykes hadn’t promoted it at his worked-up column.

  74. rawiya says:

    Is something really torpedoed if no one talks about it? Other than this article, I’ve seen one photo (ONE!) on Tumblr, of all places, making fun of her copykeening. Maybe I read the wrong sites, but no one cares about this woman. At all. Must be sad for her.

  75. Beverley says:

    My dear Britons: your future queen is an unhinged, mean-spirited, pathetic, grasping, racist loser who isn’t too bright.

    Good luck.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Quite the accomplished liar, too.

    • Well Wisher says:

      According to DB, she’s managed to help run off Harry & Meghan, quite an accomplishment….

      ‘She is tough as nails’, ‘who never put a foot wrong’…..
      Oh joy!!

  76. Jay says:

    Tells us everything we need to know that after Kate and her big ol’ mass of hair, erm, “torpedoed” Invictus, there are then four paragraphs detailing Harry’s opening speech and his work focusing on veterans! Whereas we have a photo of Kate and…a podcast appearance? Perhaps the “torpedos” failed to launch?

    But you know who might not be happy? Charles, who as far as we know is planning to visit France next week. So odd that the normally careful Wails would risk overshadowing the Monarch’s upcoming visit. And even visiting a country before he did as king! (Which was one of the “protocol” excuses for why William couldn’t visit Australia). My oh my.

    • Lorelei says:

      William is so, so stupid. Does he literally not remember that he just said about two weeks ago that he couldn’t go to Australia before his father did? But then he went to France *right* before his father did? They’ll probably say it’s because Australia is a CW country, but we all know that’s BS.

      • Christine says:

        That one is also easy to call bullshit on, if any of the British media would bother a quick Google search.

        QEII was in Kenya when her father died. A CW country that King George VI never visited.

  77. Well Wisher says:

    I read the article, it reads like a mentally ill person with power trying desperately to gaslight his ‘rival’, one who copes by transference, who escalates between incandescent rage and whimpering……..

    It is disconcerting to an outsider that although there’s no there, they keep swinging to the rafters not unlike like Don Quixote, who was a romantic not a hater…

    It is wonderful to see that all that they would have wished for William is going to Harry and Meghan …

    Really interesting, the huge gap between reality and the revealed perception (based on this article) of the key member of this soap opera..

  78. kelleybelle says:


  79. Saucy&Sassy says:

    After the last few years, I would expect better than this. Until WanK start just doing their job and ignoring whatever H&M are doing, this is going to continue to happen. Both of them need to stop already. They are their own worst enemies.

    I did see that someone high up in the UK Military went to the Invictus Games. I was happy for the UK IG Team, because I believe last year it was the Ambassador to the country. So, now they have the Ambassador and someone in their Defense Department there. Good. Now, if there could be SOMEONE in the UK who would tell the team PUBLICALLY good luck, etc., I may start to believe that they might care about their military members and veterans.

    • windyriver says:

      Charles should have wished them good luck. He could have sidestepped the Harry question by tying any remarks in with the anniversary of TQ’s death, and made a statement on 9/8, the day she passed and the day before the games opened. Preparing the UK Invictus team is now the responsibility of the Royal British Legion. TQ was the RBL’s longtime patron. Even though Charles hasn’t taken over that patronage, he could have issued a statement in her memory supporting the team, the men and women for whom she (and now he) was Commander in Chief.

      Likewise, TQ was patron of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution for her entire reign. We have no clue why Will and Kate visited the lifeboat station in Wales (after the visit to the seaweed farm), but it would have been smart to highlight the connection to TQ so they looked slightly less stupid for flying all the way to Wales to spend 10 minutes in a church putting a bunch of flowers on a stool. Come on people, I’m not even a PR person, and I can figure this out. They really are going to be deserving objects of ridicule when they all dress up in their military cosplay for the next event.

      Dumbasses, the lot of them.

  80. AC says:

    I read that Tom Sykes article yesterday. I was like, no one cared about WK podcast outside the UK. They were literally overshadowed. Everything in SM this weekend from X(Twitter), Instagram, Tik Tok focused on the Invictus Games. And the very large, enthusiastic, and impressive crowds in Germany. The monarchists knows it too and they’re just kidding themselves by writing an article saying that they overshadowed Harry. It’s laughable.

    • Well wisher says:

      The impact on the games is more important and deserves the attention…..
      You are so right…

      • AC says:

        Yes exactly, Invictus is a way bigger cause , and each country is very supportive of their veterans.
        All a WK supporter on Twitter can do this past weekend is say they saw William winking at Kate during the interview. Trying to desperately compare HMs PDA during the Beyoncés concert. Didn’t work 😀.

    • OtherML says:

      I read Sykes’ take as veiled mocking. It’s Brit-speak. Anyone else? Otherwise why spend paragraphs sharing Harry’s inspiring words then a few sentences about how self-satisfied W&K are.

  81. QuiteContrary says:

    I think it’s absolutely disgusting that Sykes used the word “torpedoed” in reference to an event for WOUNDED VETERANS.
    That in in itself is unbelievable. Add to that Kate’s attempt to erase Meghan and I’m just in utter disbelief.

    • Lorelei says:

      Oh god, I hadn’t even caught that! You’re right, that’s vile. Good grief

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      It’s deplorable how Brit journalists use certain words. They seem to be very big on violent and triggering words with no care. They are quite big on bombshell, truth bombs, grenades and what have you. With no care in the world how those words might effect their own military vets with their dumb a$$ clickbait stories. Sad state of affairs with no thought to others.

  89. ales says:

    K is absolutely clueless. She is too much of a self centred dunce to realize that the reason Princess Diana is still honored and Meghan is regularly praised is because of their behavior first and their appearances come second. Both being beautiful is a bonus. Caring for people and tryng to help the disadvantaged with humbleness yet determination to make a long term difference in peoples lives is something beyond the understanding of narcissistic K. The ony people K has ever helped are her grifter family and of course herself, first and foremost. The masses of plastic surgery that she has not had, even though she barely resembles what she looked like early on, does not and will not make people adore her. Someone as cunning and divisive as her is not and never has been a victim, most people do not realise that narcisists are highly skilled in presenting themselves as victims. A predator who stalked W for 10 plus years, removed all competition and is constantly attacking M, is definitely not meek and mild in any way.

  90. ShoppeGirlMN says:

    I think the wig and heavy makeup makes her look older. Like a 50yo Real Housewives of Windsor.

      Those photos look like they were taken by someone’s phone; they don’t look like professional photos IMO. Her favorite photographer was at the Invictus Games.
