Us Weekly: Prince William & Kate are ‘more in sync than ever’ & ‘in awe of each other’

Us Weekly’s cover story this week is about Prince William and Kate, who seem for all intents and purposes to be separated physically and emotionally. That’s not the point of Us Weekly’s cover story though – it’s all about how they’re closer than ever (?) and how much William hates Harry (!) and how much William loves it when Kate gropes his ass in public (lol). My best guess is that this is propaganda from Middleton Manor, because William’s comms shop is all about reinforcing his Big Single Guy Energy. Got to appreciate the fact that Us Weekly chose this photo for the cover too – this is from QEII’s death-anniversary, when these two horse’s asses arrived in Wales over an hour late for a ten-minute memorial service. Will and Kate were all smiles, gawping and gurning at the handful of “fans” who waited over an hour to see them. Some highlights from the cover story:

More in sync than ever: “William and Kate are more in sync than ever,” a palace insider tells Us. “They cherish what they have with each other. For them, family comes first, and it always will.” According to the palace source, William and Kate, both 41, have both been deeply affected by the loss of the queen. “Her death hit them extremely hard,” says the source. “In many ways, it’s only now really sinking in that she’s gone. They’re the first to admit it’s been a tough year, but everyone agrees William and Kate have done a wonderful job staying strong in the face of such adversity.”

In awe of each other: All of the challenges have brought William and Kate closer. “They’re in awe of each other,” says the source. “William tells anyone who will listen that he couldn’t do it without Kate, and she echoes that right back.”

Kate’s ass-groping: They’ve even been engaging in some PDA lately, sharing a sweet kiss at a polo match in July.“William used to be quite awkward about showing too much affection,” says the source, “but Kate’s helped him relax.”

William’s obsession with all things Harry: The source says William’s estrangement from Harry, 39, remains a sore spot. “William hasn’t spoken to Harry in a long time. The standoff is mutual, and it doesn’t look like it will end anytime soon. William is furious over all the things Harry’s said about him,” says the source, noting that the way he was portrayed in Spare “tipped him over the edge.” Any hints of peace talks have stalled. “Even if Harry were to come crawling back with an apology, it’s hard to imagine William forgiving and forgetting. The only silver lining of this situation is that it’s motivated William to keep his family unit very firmly intact.”

The move to Adelaide Cottage: They’re enjoying their new home away from the hustle and bustle of the city. “Adelaide feels like a more serene environment for them,” explains the source. “William and Kate are proud to serve and help people in any way they can,” says the source. “But more than anything, they’re proud of their marriage and beautiful family.”

[From Us Weekly]

“Even if Harry were to come crawling back with an apology…” These morons really pinned all of their hopes on that. They thought if they were sadistic enough, if they punished Harry enough, if they smeared Meghan enough, that Harry would come “crawling back” to them, begging for forgiveness. That’s how they operate, that’s how they think, that’s their entire all-stick-no-carrot approach to life and negotiations. The only thing which reads true, to me, in this entire mess is this part: “The only silver lining of this situation is that it’s motivated William to keep his family unit very firmly intact.” While we talk a lot about how the knives are seemingly out for Kate and what it all means, I still maintain that Kate is in it to the bitter end and William won’t dump her unless he has someone else waiting in the wings. They’ll live separate lives and Kate won’t do much of anything, but that’s actually fine with William. He loves his “family man” image, he just wants to also be seen as a sexy heartthrob who is ready to screw around on his wife with anyone.

    Here they go, again.

    • Cecile730 says:

      Yes they are sooo into each other that they can’t make room for new family photos… All of this smells like desperation.

  2. leslie says:

    I just laughed at the headline. No other comment. 😆

  3. Michelle says:

    I have whiplash from Burger King’s latest “news” stories.

  4. LeahTheFrench says:

    The full piece is so sycophantic, it’s vomit-inducing. They’ve gone completely overboard with this, there’s not even an ounce of journalistic neutrality. it’s a wonder to me a piece like that can get past editorial review in 2023.

    • Josephine says:

      I don’t think that magazine has ever bothered with neutrality. I’ve always assumed that celebs just pay for whatever article they want.

  5. HeatherC says:

    This article is so try hard. And of course they had to work Harry’s name into everything ::eye roll::

    I agree that Kate will hold on with her skeletal claws until the very end, and possibly beyond. She doesn’t mind being humiliated and degraded by her husband.

    Also William can’t stop mentioning how much he needs Kate? The firefighters at Number 10 disagree.

    • Lorelei says:

      Also, William needed a feud and an estrangement with his little brother in order to motivate him to “keep his family unit intact?” WTH is this?

      • Gabby says:

        It’s Waity and Carole throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. That “keep the family unit intact” is the buried lead in the article and the true motivation here.

    • one of the marys says:

      I think Kate is hanging on because she doesn’t have anything else but I do think she minds how she is being treated. She looks so unwell. It’s all taking a toll (fyi no sympathy from me)

  6. Lizzie says:

    I feel like William won’t leave Kate for someone in the wings, too much like his dad. I think he’ll try being single dad for a few years. Probably a few women secretly in the wings but he won’t want the same anger about leaving Kate for someone else like Chuck and Cam still get. Lots of headlines of who he dates and praise for being ha hands on single dad.

    • MY3CENTS says:

      I think the thing that’s holding this marriage together is how much Willnot does not to be like his dad, above all else
      They will continue this sham and only divorce If he’ll want to marry another .
      This arrangement suits them both just fine, pretense and image above substance.

      • TigerMcQueen says:

        I think what held the marriage together as long as it has lasted was that Will leaned in deep to the “I’m not like me dad, I have a happy marriage” persona. For the longest time, I thought he’d keep doing that and would only divorce if he found someone he really, really wanted to marry (and who was willing to put up with the life and marry him). But I also think it’s reached a point where 1) he just wants out, and 2) he thinks he can get more attention in the media as a ‘hot’ (ugh) single dad than ‘happily’ married man at this point. And I do think Will craaaves media attention these days, more than anything. He seems pathologically driven to compete with Harry.

        He knows that Khate’s not beloved by the public nor does she bring anything to the table in regard to bolstering his reputation (despite what Ma Middleton tries to say about Khate being indispensable a lynchpin). She’s not smart. She’s not hardworking. Her looks are fading fast. She’s basically known for wearing clothes and having kids. Well, as far as being a fashion ‘icon’, she’s forgettable, and if/when she leaves the public eye, no one will GAF about what she wears. The kids are her best asset at this point, but Will doesn’t need her to be around the kids. In fact, he’d probably get more attention when out with the kids if he were doing ‘single dad’ duty. And I think he knows that.

        If they divorce, no one not named Middleton is going to be angry at Will. The public will think ‘well, they gave it a shot, it lasted a lot longer than most’ if anything.

    • Dot Gingell says:

      There won’t be the same anger if they do split. Diana who was universally loved, admired and adored and I can’t picture Rose as the new Camilla. As far as we know, she didn’t push Peggsy into the marriage then plot against Muttons by constantly undermining and humiliating her.

      • Libra says:

        Others have commented here that Rose was never the mistress. She and her husband made Houghton Hall available to William for his trysts, Kate found out and the sht hit the fan.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Rose was absolutely one of many sidepieces, her own pissed brother outed it many times in local pubs. That was a several year run for William and Rose, before and after it was outed. In between him cheating with other people, he’d make the quick run across the fields to Rose whenever the mood struck. Likely still does.

        Do she and Rocksavage also provide cover for William’s other trysts? Sure.

      • Becks1 says:

        Rose not being the mistress was one theory we all discussed when the rural rivals story first broke; that she was offering up Houghton Hall for his trysts but wasn’t actually the mistress.

        But since then I think its been pretty well established by various sources (including the Daily Beast’s Tom Sykes) that there was an affair between William and Rose. Was that his only affair? I’m sure it wasnt and it may be long over at this point. But Rose and David are still very much in the inner royal circle.

    • Nic919 says:

      He’s testing out the single dad stuff already. He made no reference to her in NYC but spoke of the kids.

    • ecsmom says:

      I think the single thing that will keep Pegs from divorcing Buttons is that Harry and Meghan are still married. That would mean H&M would look like winners and he would look like a loser.

      • Ms CP says:

        Excellent point!

      • Lorelei says:

        @Ecsmom, omg you are exactly right! I’d never thought about it that way, but that’s 100% the way William operates. I hope he holds his breath waiting for a Sussex divorce announcement, lmao.

      • one of the marys says:

        Not if he can find a suitable American to wed

      • Linden says:

        Bingo! This is, IMO, why KP and their allies are trying so hard to will an H&M divorce into existence, if only by exerting so much pressure, scrutiny, and negativity on it the couple crumbles under the never ending weight of the boots on their (and eventually their children’s) necks. It’s a win-win, in their minds: a H&M divorce (the messier, the better) clears the way for W&K to do so and still be compared favorably — modern love! conscious royal uncoupling! the very MODEL of co-parenting — and it increases the chance, they think, Harry will return, chastened, to support eventual King William.

      • Bromptonviewer says:

        I know as royals they couldn’t do this but for all their “we’re so normal” chat what would actually be refreshingly normal would be to drop the facade. They’ve been together a very long time. It’s been a very tumultuous few years for both families. Many very successful long term marriages go through these phases when ish just isn’t good and they can barely fake it. I was shocked when Michelle Obama shared “If I fell out with him for 10 [years,] and we had a great 20 years, I’d take those odds anytime,” the former first lady said in response to a question from King about remarks she made last year that for a decade during their relationship, she “couldn’t stand” her husband. I’ve sought the advice of so many older happily married couples and most had some version of this. It does make me question the whole marriage thing if it makes you miserable so much of the time but it seems the secret is just sticking it out. Will and Kate have the means to stick it out very comfortably for the benefit of their children and the monarchy. They have Philip and Elizabeth as role models who certainly seemed to enjoy a large part of their marriage even if it was unconventional to modern eyes.

      • Nic919 says:

        Michelle and Barack don’t have a transactional relationship like W and K. So while there may have been times that she didn’t like Barack, she didn’t hate him.

      • notasugarhere says:

        The monarchy doesn’t need these two idiots married to each other. No one cares if these two stay together. Allegiances would automatically shift to Wife #2 while Kate is completely forgotten.

        Children do not benefit from unhappy, abusive-to-each-other, miserable, overgrown adolescent ‘adults’ sticking it out. Playing out their misery in the press, using the tabloids as attack dogs against each other.

        The children would be better off if the parents divorced and learned to act like adults.

    • notasugarhere says:

      No one will be angry about William dumping Kate, LOL. Unless you count Keen and Mummy. That’s it. No one else will care.

  7. Tessa says:

    Us promotes Kate and the middletons. William hits his brother then plays victim and blames his brother. Craven behavior. William made it clear how he feels about pda and moves his hand away when Kate tries to hold hands

  8. Eurydice says:

    Whether this is true or not, it’s boring. Celebrity baby food.

    • Lorelei says:

      Excellent description. BoringAF.

      Whoever happened to get that one cover shot of them smiling at each other really lucked out, because they truly have not looked at each other that way in YEARS. Lightning won’t strike twice, so we should probably get used to seeing that photo *a lot*.

      • BeanieBean says:

        She may be looking at him, but his eyes are very definitely looking at something beyond her. I’m also not 100% certain they’re standing that close to each other.

    • notasugarhere says:

      You’re always welcome not to click on the story, welcome not to comment. If it bores you, read a different story.

  9. Wow Carole got this 💩 out there quickly. These two openly (especially Peg) can’t stand one another’s presence. He gives her rolled eyes and smug looks. These two are together in nothing but a piece of paper saying they are married. Harry owes no one an apology. He is due all sorts of apologies. Carole needs to sit down with this 💩.

  10. Kim says:

    They couldn’t even get People magazine to promote this fiction for them? Uh-oh

  11. ThatsNotOkay says:

    “William tells anyone who will listen that he couldn’t do it without Kate, and she echoes that right back.”

    Do WHAT? They’ve been doing everything without the other lately. And by “doing,” I mean doing NOTHING (as usual). They don’t DO anything.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Smoke, mirrors, expensive clothes, photo-ops, smoke mirrors, expensive clothes, photo-ops. Wash, rinse, repeat …

    • Lux says:

      He did his Global Fakesmen trip without her and is threatening to do Earthsh!t Singapore! without her too. There are plenty of other, ahem, things he does without her as well…

  12. Becks1 says:

    So this line – “The only silver lining of this situation is that it’s motivated William to keep his family unit very firmly intact” – means that William is poisoning his kids against Harry and making sure Charlotte and Louis understand their roles as the spares and that they fully understand that their job in life is to support George, provide cover for him in the press when necessary, etc. He’s not going to let them get ideas in their head about leaving the Firm.

    I think this article came out now to deflect from Kate’s absence in New York because that is something Americans would notice – to the extent they notice William was in NYC at all, most are then going to ask “where’s Kate?” So this is telling us that their marriage is perfect, nothing to see here folks, move along. William can’t do anything without Kate by his side except his big important NYC trip, Earthshot ceremony in Singapore, etc.

    • Chloe says:

      Charlotte and Louis won’t get the amount of vitriolic press harry and meghan have received. And if they do the public will probably very likely denounce it. So as far as i am concerned he can do with his kids what he wants.

      • Jais says:

        Really? I absolutely hope that’s the case but the family is entrenched with the tabloids at this point and they will not hesitate to be awful.

      • Becks1 says:

        I mean not right now, but who knows how things will play out over the next 20 years. We know one thing – that William sees nothing at all wrong with how the royal family treated and used Harry for decades. The only “wrong” thing is that Harry walked away and said “no thanks.” So I do think he’s going to make sure his kids understand how things “should” work. And if its between a story being written about George partying or a story about Charlotte, we know which one will get printed.

        The public didn’t denounce it with Harry, even from when he was a teenager, why would they with Charlotte or Louis?

    • Harper says:

      The report last weekend that Kate is not going to Singapore triggered a lot of gossip and speculation. Coupled with the solo NYC trip, evidence clearly shows Burger King can do it without her. CarolE seeing with her own eyes how many people are putting two and two together and posting about it. She is trying to slap that down with a call to US Weekly.

    • Lucy says:

      Right, I read the “silver lining” bit as a threat to stay in complete control of his kids. He still sees the problem as Harry not doing what he’s told and rejecting being controlled by Will and the establishment. I think that means he doubled down on the kids knowing they owe him and The Crown obedience. I hope I’m wrong, but he’s a narcissist. If the kids don’t go to boarding school, it will be because he wants to control them more.

    • Nic919 says:

      This is a Carole Special. She’s telling William he needs to keep his family intact. But based on his behaviour recently, he doesn’t think the same way.

      As for the kids “accepting their role” , that is only a temporary stop gap. Once they are old enough, they will have access to a lot more information and realize it’s a bad system for them. Harry was supporting the family for years too, but then it wasn’t worth it anymore.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Carole hasn’t seen the memo that she has no influence over William any more – the fact that he stood by while her family business went bankrupt and they got exposed as lying grifters in press says EVERYTHING about how he feels about his wife and her family. He is DONE with them.

      • Becks1 says:

        oh this is an interesting take too. Its more a threat than praise – b/c why would that be praiseworthy? but it would be a threat that he HAS to keep the family intact (i.e. no divorce) in order to be a better PoW than his father.

    • Eurydice says:

      My thought as I was reading this line was “What family unit are they talking about – W&K and the kids, or the RF?” Because, when it comes to Harry, they clearly mean the RF – Meghan and the kids don’t count as family.

  13. Amy Bee says:

    Do William and Kate really need an embiggening piece about their marriage? Hmm…I think the opposite is true. Kate lives in Adelaide Cottage and William lives at Windsor Castle.

    • Becks1 says:

      They do when people are starting to ask why Kate isn’t joining William on some of these international trips about his signature cause, lol.

    • notasugarhere says:

      With the daily helo trips KP/Windsor being clocked? William might live mostly at 1A, partying at private clubs in London.

      When he’s having single dad time with the kids? Maybe William lives at Frogmore Cottage. Or possibly Garden House, the grace-and-favour home QEII let her cousin Margaret Rhodes live in for years. After the cousin’s death the house was empty. That may have been the freebie ‘Windsor area’ house QEII offered to AK47 – which Charles removed. That leaves it available to William, with no public Crown Estate lease to get people talking. Much like Wood Farm at Sandringham allowed him to escape Kate at Anmer Hall.

    • Carolind says:

      You don’t understand about Windsor Castle. It is for the monarch. William living at Windsor Castle would be like your vice president living in the White House.

  14. Mary Pester says:

    Oh fk this sht. I can’t stand anymore of this bullsht. They ARE NOT HAPPY, THEY ARE NOT CLOSE, THEY ARE NOT A UNIT!! They are two people clinging on (not to each other) but to the fact that the throne is now only one death away. THAT’S how selfish and intent on their ambition they are. Harry won’t CRAWL anywhere, he has no need to nor does he want to, but other than the sycophantic dross in this vomit inducing article, they, along with EVERY article like this, NEVER DENY anything in “SPARE”. SO keep on keeping on, it STILL won’t make wank or keen any more appealing to any right thinking people

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Mary Pester, what I saw in that picture above was Cant looking at Wont, but hes not looking at her. I notice that her eyes are not soft–no love there being conveyed, folks.

      The whole thing is absurd. Cant just got done showing how poorly she performs her engagements–and looks bad while doing so.

      I do think that Wont can make a go of the single dad role. What would be different from his father is that he doesn’t have someone waiting in the wings. That’s a huge difference IMO.

      • Debbie says:

        I thought so too. When I looked at Kate in the picture above, I thought that was one of the most severe “smiles” I’ve ever seen. And, as usual, William’s looking off in the distance while her eyes are trained on him.

      • Mary Pester says:

        @saucy&sassy, agreed lovey, I’ve noticed that when he does look at her, it’s either with thinly veiled contempt, or the eyes roll, and she looks at him at times asif he’s a bad smell under her nose. Those are the honest pictures about the state of their marriage (and why the children are always positioned between them). The only time they smile at each other is when they spot the camera pointed their way (or if they both have wind)

  15. aquarius64 says:

    The constant need for painting Harry the bad guy just shows the Waleses’ insecurity about their image on the US.

  16. Inge says:

    This would be the perfect time for the seperation/divorce announcement that was speculated on Twitter this week….

    Also William needs to apologize to Harry.

  17. Inge says:

    When they try to bring out divorce rumours re the Sussexes they look more in love then ever. So every time they try to convince everyone of the Cambridges being head over heals I feel a divorce is imminent. We have eyes, we see W disgusted with his wife, we see K trying to overshadow W’s big boy trip….

  18. Zut Alors says:

    That cover photo is terrible. They’re both looking past each other, not at each other. Those are decidedly not festive glances 😉

  19. The Duchess says:

    I find the projection of Harry ‘crawling around’ to be very interesting. The only people crawling around is Willy & Keen. They are crawling to the finish line that is the throne. Two people forced together, putting on the biggest farce known to man. They have never been happy, nor were they ever a unit. Willy settled because Keen was the last woman standing. That is the truth of the matter.

  20. girl_ninja says:

    So this story is all because of Harry and Meg’s open displays of affection at the Invictus games. This ridiculous one sided competition with the Sussexs is consuming them and will lead to their demise. Anyone with eyes, who is HONEST with themselves can see that Will and Kate do not get along and Will cannot STAND that woman touching him. It’s unfortunate for them and their babies but it’s true.

    • Angelica Schuyler says:

      @Girl_ninja I was thinking the same exact thing. WanK are shook by the closeness of H&M displayed during IG and now they’re rushing to say ‘We’re close too!’. Except anyone can see by their interaction that they basically disdain one another. We are not fooled. Them shouting how close they are, is like Billy shouting how great a statesman he is…….

      • TigerMcQueen says:

        I don’t think W&W were shook by H&M at Invictus or are rushing to say it. I think KHATE is the one shook by it and is rushing to tell everyone that she’s in a happy marriage too.

        Will, on the other hand, seems to be happy to be without Khate lately, even after how obviously loved up H&M were this past week. Will’s very much obsessed about competing with Harry, but…he’s also making a point to do things solo. Very interesting IMO.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        TigerMcQueen, what good points. Someone at Middleton Manor (or Cant) is trying to change the narrative from the past week. This isn’t going to do it.

      • Debbie says:

        What’s odd to me is that they spend considerable time and newspaper space complaining about Harry and Meghan holding hands, and disdainfully calling it public displays of affection; yet here are William and Kate arranging news stories proclaiming, “We’re in sync! We’re in awe!” Talk about desperate and obvious.

  21. MSTJ says:

    That burgandy tone suits her. She should wear it more.

    IIRC in Spare, Harry said William is his arch-nemesis. That book is such a tome imo. Everything Harry said in the book is so on point and is recognizable when I observe or read about his brother. Note: The arch-nemesis tends to be ever-present, and is never truly defeated.

    William needs Harry to motivate him to do work (appearances), to care about keeping is family in tact (appearances), otherwise William would be running around with his aristocratic friends partying and playing until his father died and it was time to be King. The guy doesn’t have his own vision of how he can contribute to improve the lives of his subjects and in not interested in any of the patronages he has. He just wants to be king🤴. Until then he’ll just feud with Harry and run around doing whatever nonsense his team of courtiers cook up for him to do to to look relevant and compete with Harry while hating his Harry and Meghan. No wonder it has been reported that he is frequently incandescent with rage 😡. It will be interesting to see how this rebrand of the Waleses turn out. 👀

    • girl_ninja says:

      “William needs Harry to motivate him to do work (appearances), to care about keeping is family in tact (appearances), otherwise William would be running around with his aristocratic friends partying and playing until his father died and it was time to be King. ”

      But the ‘work’ is all half hearted and without substance. All he cares about is looking better than Harry, not even BEING better. Willy is a true loser.

    • one of the marys says:

      What does he think is going to happen when he is king? What will change? Why would that be his motivation? I’m not convinced he wants to be king but I think he wants to be out from under scrutiny

  22. kelleybelle says:

    Except how many pictures do we have of them actually looking at each other? The press is dying for shots like that all because Harry and Meghan were so loved up at Invictus. Pathetic reachers.

    • Marivic says:

      They’re not even looking at each other if you look closely. They’re looking past each other. That’s how difficult to look for pictures of these two looking in love with each other because there’s none actually. Only pictures of Kate looking at her husband and William avoiding looking at her or , if there are, they are pictures of William full of disdain when looking at his wife. No pictures of loving glances really. The tabloids make it all up. They can never be like Meghan and Harry who are so much into each other.

      • Julianna says:

        I agree with you completely. I saw on twitter once a screenshot of a picture from a media article claiming look how in love they are with a picture – the picture was cropped and it appeared they actually were looking at one another. Then the uncropped picture showed kate smiling (guffawing) with her assistant (?) standing behind William. William was interacting with someone behind kate. Pathetic.

    • Christine says:

      I almost felt sorry for all the derangers who were posting photo montages of Cannot and Willnot during Invictus, with the caption of “Their Love” or “I love their love!” or, worst of all, “the way he looks at her!”.

      What state does your own self confidence have to be in to look at these two and see anything other than seething disdain? They aren’t bothering to hide it anymore. If you are a young girl looking at their marriage and finding anything to admire, I beg you not to get married yourself. You are ripe for the picking by an abusive man.

      • Iolanthe says:

        Err. In this case, the one ripe for the picking was Willam ..the Middletons literally made him their project. I am not one bit sorry for Kate ..she wanted it , and still has her beady eye on the throne and the title . William is a weak and pathetic man , but I can’t help thinking things may have been different if he had married someone intelligent and caring like his brother did . He wasn’t that bad before Kate got her claws into him .

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        Lord knows I am no fan of Kate’s (you can read my previous posts to see what I really think of her). BUT, I do pity her to the extent that she is married to William, whom I find to be even worse. Yes, Kate chased William and stuck to him like glue (or a limpet) and her family manipulated him . . . but William held/holds all the power in that relationship. He called the shot on whether they would marry or not, on whether they would do productive work after getting married (or not), etc. He is no “victim” of the Middletons, and nothing happened that he didn’t want (or at least agree) to happen. He screams and throws things at her, cheats on her, has no respect for her, and one of the worst (to me) things is the glimpses into how her own children are being raised to not respect her.

        Yes, she is a mean girl, allowed her sister-in-law to be attacked by racists without showing any sympathy, and showed no sympathy when Meghan revealed her suicidal thoughts. HOWEVER, neither did William, or Charles, or Camilla, so how is Kate any worse? The one tiny thing that makes me put Kate above William is that when Kate made Meghan cry, her first reaction was to apologize and send flowers. William would NEVER have done that. I suspect (admittedly with no proof) that Kate was corrected by William, or some other higher-ranked royal, that apologizing is “not how they do things” and instead you need to double down on attacking the victim. We’ve seen that Kate will fall in line with whatever the royals do, never thinking for herself or standing up for herself. I think that is bad, but all I’m saying is, I think William is WORSE.

      • Tessa says:

        Kate sent flowers but did not deny the story to the media. She also made threatening steps to Meghan on the walkabout. In many ways kate is worse.

      • Nic919 says:

        Kate made Meghan cry in front of other people. That’s why she apologized. The woman stays silent despite suicidal ideation and miscarriage. If that isn’t the sign of a soulless sociopath I don’t know what is.

        William is a jerk too, but Kate chose to pursue him and tolerate his cheating and lack of respect. She did not have to marry him. She chooses to stay miserable in this relationship for a title. No pity for her. She can walk out now. She chooses not to.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Exactly, Nic919.

      • windyriver says:

        @Iolanthe – I think there’s some truth to this, have wondered myself how he might have turned out, with another kind of woman, if not for running across the Middletons.

        @Nic919 – agree as well, just because William is worse, doesn’t mean Kate has been a victim.

      • Christine says:

        I was only slightly sorry for the derangers, because they think Kitty and Wills are true love goals….

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Mrs.Krabapple, I do think they’re evenly matched in that if you look at how Cant has publicly treated Meghan it’s very clear that she has a lot of negative feelings bottled up. Certainly, from the service in March 2020and how she treated Meghan in full public view to the funeral and how she treated Meghan in full public view including menacing her in that walkabout. Then look at everything in between when Meghan was present for an event.

        I agree that Wont holds more power because he also holds the purses strings. If they decide to officially separate (which would be the best thing for both of them) he will also have more power. I think the best that can be done with that is they both keep their mouths SHUT and go with Cant wanting to be a hands on Mom, etc. That would be SOOOOO different from Chuck & Di’s separation and divorce, as will Wont NOT having someone waiting in the wings.

    • kelleybelle says:

      Oh, I know they aren’t; they’re looking past each other. She tries so hard yet he so rarely looks back. He can’t stand her; it’s quite obvious. They had to use this photo because it’s the closest they have of them actually looking at each other.

  23. Murphy says:

    He is never going back.
    Even if things don’t work out with Meghan-and this is the part they don’t understand–even then he will not go back.

        @WindyRiver, I understand the tendency to wonder whether or not Willy might have been different had the courtiers and the Middletons not co-opted, coddled, and embedded their claws into him in his youth. Possibly. Maybe had Chuck been a better father; if Diana had not been killed; if Willy and Harry had been given grief therapy immediately after their mother’s passing, etc., etc.

        The fact remains, Willy’s personality is what it is. Diana might have been able to be something of a guiding influence or a sounding board for her angry, lazy, bossy, and willful older son, had she been allowed to live. Yet, she likely would have had to battle Chuck and the interfering courtiers to help Willy, all the same.

        Somehow, as fate and fortune has it, Harry confronted the same painful loss as Willy, yet he has managed to become a real man, and to carve out a happy life, against so much vile opposition! Plus, Harry was not coddled and protected like Willy. Harry was used as a scapegoat and allowed to be unrelentingly abused by the BM.

        Therefore the stark differences are what they are. Willy has had some sway and more leverage than Harry within that institution. Yet, selfish Willy always failed to protect his little brother, preferring instead to take him for granted as his God-given, forever spare, to mistreat at will! Pun intended.

        I have no sympathy for Bullyiam. And by now, I bear no sentimentality for the fact that this incandescent fool is Diana’s firstborn son. If nothing else, why doesn’t he try to live up to his mother’s love for him?? Instead, he sells out and calls her paranoid, even as he tries to grift on her beloved memory. 🤮

  24. Bad Janet says:

    Lol, someone isn’t aligned with the sexy single Will roll out yet.

    Carole? People won’t take your calls?

  25. Peanut Butter says:

    I’m in awe of their mediocrity.

  26. Em says:

    They’re so in love with each other that they took 2 separate round trips using the same private jet to watch matches in the same country in a weekend.

    In all this I hope Charles lives a long life so it would be funnier to see how they continue to pretend especially as the children get older

  27. equality says:

    That “sweet” kiss at the polo match where they held each other by the shoulders and kissed on the cheek? I’ve seen strangers greet someone with more enthusiasm. And they needed Adelaide to be in the countryside? What was wrong with Anmer?

    • Lorelei says:

      Someone on here described the polo match display as the way distant cousins would greet each other at a funeral, and it’s so apt that I’ve remembered it, lol.

      • HuffnPuff says:

        Yes! The polo match kiss was an odd example to bring up. Certainly not a husband and wife kiss. But sure, they are just oozing with love.

    • Nic919 says:

      The same polo event where William took off like a rocket once he got the trophy and video caught Kate looking at him run off.

    • BQM says:

      Charles and Diana showed more affection and warmth.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Not really. There are too many photos and lots of footage of Charles & Diana looking miserable together at public events. At times near the end, their annoyance and loathing for each other was palpable. In their relationship, Diana was largely the young victim. Charles should have manned-up and married Anna Wallace, if he was truly in love with her. Instead, he allowed himself to be played and seduced by Camilla. Yet, he didn’t man-up against his elders and take Camilla as his wife either, until late in life against the wishes of his two sons. Chuck’s weak, dithering when confronted with personal challenges, has been his downfall.

        On his wedding day, Chuck was a combo of self-pitying angst, mixed with bittersweet sentimentality amidst the crowd’s joy, and the pomp and circumstance of royal duty. Beautiful, young Diana was like a lamb led to the slaughter.

        On his wedding day, William gave off a clueless, indifferent vibe. We now know, thanks to Harry’s memoir, that Willy was feeling miserably incandescent and foolish about having to wear his scarlett red uniform. Willy had wanted to wear the more casual Blues and Royals frockcoat uniform. The same uniform Harry got permission to wear at his royal wedding 7 years lady. Harry got the wife he loved, the uniform he preferred, and he got to stay unshaven too!!! LOL! Harry also leads the kind of life he dreamed of, but never thought was possible, until he met Meghan.

      • aftershocks says:

        Correction to above: “7 years later…”

        Also, wanted to add that on her wedding day, Kate smirked like the ‘cat who got the cream.’ At the same time, she could sense Willy’s indifference and anger about his uniform bubbling beneath the surface. Anytime a bride has to uncertainly ask her groom after the ceremony, whether he’s happy, that doesn’t bode well.

  28. ShazBot says:

    Matt Porteous should take note – if you can get them to stand next to each other, this edit is a MUCH better family photo than them all in a line.

  29. VilleRose says:

    I dunno if Kate will stick it out to the bitter end. She hasn’t seemed great lately and pretending everything is fine every time she steps out in public has got to take its toll. Also the kids are getting older and definitely notice the tension at this point. If they decide to formally separate, I would hope it’s because the two of them see the “pretend we are a happy family” shtick is detrimental to their kids’ mental health (also you would think William would take this into consideration given everything he went through as a kid when his own parents divorced). Given how Kate goes on and on about the Early Years… but yes she is hypocritical.

    • HeatherC says:

      Well the Arly Yarrrs only apply to up to 5 right? Louis is 5. Without another baby to replace him, there’s really nothing her children can add to her life long work and legacy of Early Years

  30. Over it says:

    Maybe loving Looks and affection means something different in the uk because from where I sit . He never looks at her period. She always looks bitter , miserable and unhappy unless she is slapping his ass to annoy him because he keep acting like she doesn’t exist. The only thing these two miss about the queen is she is no longer around to provide cover for their lazy unintelligent, behinds .
    They wish Harry wanted them . Too bad Harry just doesn’t give a grape about them . Harry is happy and definitely into his wife and it shows .

  31. Eliora says:

    Who is even the audience for this article 🤔. Why in the world do they need to write an article about how happy and in sync Will and Kate are? If they were so happy together, they would simply exude love and joy. But they don’t. They look like the most miserable pair whenever they are out in public. Probably why they are starting to limit their joint public appearances.

    • Christine says:

      Pre-teen and teenage girls are the only ones I can imagine swooning for this couple.

      They are a walking advertisement for the prefrontal cortex being the last part of the brain to develop.

      • AC says:

        @christine – actually I think teens and pre-teens are more infatuated with fictional characters from YA books these days . 😀 they don’t care for this couple at all.

  32. QuiteContrary says:

    “The only silver lining of this situation is that it’s motivated William to keep his family unit very firmly intact.”

    I read that as a threat from CaroleE to William: Ditch Kate and you’re going to look like no one wants to be in your life — not your wife, not your brother. … You’re going to look pathetic and alone.

  33. tamsin says:

    Methinks they doth protest too much!

  34. Lady Digby says:

    Most pro royals love the idea of WK having a stable and happy marriage and would be shocked if he had a messy split and pegging was involved! I spoke to a fan on Saturday and mentioned split rumors and was categorically told that W is a decent man who would never cheat on a wife as nice as Kate! His public image would take a knock unless there’s a huge cash settlement and NDAs all round including Uncle Gary. If W has had enough of even the limited joint engagement then K is toast. Only time will tell!

    • swirlmamad says:

      Yeah, I think unless you’re following royal gossip closely, a W+K split WILL come as a surprise. I know someone who likes both couples (I know 🙄) and doesn’t believe that William is anything other than an upstanding family man. However, I know she only reads People mag and the like to get her royals news. I think it would definitely cause at least a minor uproar if they split, but I also agree that Kate doesn’t have the love and goodwill that Diana had behind her, so it would be big news for a while, and then die down especially if they get/pay their sycophants to sweep it under the rug. They did it with the Party Pieces and rural rivals messes, so I definitely think it can be done.

      The one thing that I think might be keeping W from pulling the trigger is what someone else said above — if he ditches K officially, then there is definitely going to be an element of “Harry won” — he absolutely found the better woman/wife and clearly has the happy home life that’s been projected on the WanKs all these years. That will eat at him forever even if he has a replacement in mind.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Lady Digby, I agree with much of what you say, but I keep thinking that I don’t think Cant’s background is pristine–especially when it comes to Uncle Gary’s establishment. I think there’s more there than meets the eye.

      If they make Cant the reason the Sussexes left and she’s got stuff she doesn’t want in the media, there may be more of a stand off in that respect. I do think there will have to be a settlement–how much I don’t know, but since we tend to believe Wont funded the new Middleton Manor? That could be part of the settlement.

    • Becks1 says:

      I think a divorce could happen without the cheating rumors. I mean as it is the british tabloids et al aren’t talking about those rumors, besides the little crumbs they keep leaving. And cheating wouldn’t be the reason for the divorce anyway, it would be because William is over Kate, so I think a divorce could happen with William’s image intact….if handled carefully.

      “Kate wants to focus on being a mother as her children enter their teenage years, the public pressure of being Princess of Wales is too much for her, she and William care about each other deeply, having spent half their lives together, but they have grown apart and want different things out of life for now.”

      I don’t think Kate would go rogue and start giving interviews etc. I think she would take her settlement and her divorce house and settle down quietly in Windsor. she has seen how the family cut off harry so brutally, and he’s a blood prince. If she still wants to be invited to big royal events (a la Fergie), she would keep quiet.

    • notasugarhere says:

      A ‘fan’ told you they don’t believe cheating rumours. Shocker. LOL

      People aren’t going to care if these two divorce. Half of the marriages in the UK end in divorce, it isn’t shocking.

      What people will care about is if she’s seen globetrotting with massive RPO presence, or if any Duchy money is seen directed privately her way. The Adelaide settlement house works because it is small, doesn’t seem like a big settlement, can be removed at any time (not private property), and works for security while the kids are underage.

      There will be no big money payout for Kate, and they aren’t going to need to payoff her family. The royals and UK govt have more than enough to bury the Middletons, Uncle Gary, the shady Matthews family, all of it.

  35. AC says:

    Interesting that they have to go to a US based publication to say they’re happy as ever lol. The article from DM yesterday takes the cake and feels he’s pretty much done with her – although in a very cringeworthy way. Also agree the Middleton camp went to US Weekly to try to con their own narratives.
    I agree with Kaiser from a few blogs ago, in which Kate probably wanted to go to NYC but was told not to, and now she’s also not going to Singapore. Which is devastating for her.
    I still think that William wants to find someone with similar qualities to Meghan. Not just as a fling, but a lifelong partner(as what HM has as a couple. And being very competitive, that really irks William so much as he doesn’t have that “power couple” status with his own marriage.). He won’t be able to achieve that if he’s still tied to Kate. If they’re unhappy now, and they still stick together, it will get more and more obvious as time passes by. And that definitely would not be a good look for the BRF, having 2 people look miserable through the upcoming years.

  36. LoryD75 says:

    This is like couple on Instagram who post gushing tributes to their partners. The more in love it seems they are online the more they are just trying to convince themselves.

  37. bettyrose says:

    I miss my grandmother so much. She was born the same year as Liz, but passed away about 7 years ago. She was such a huge part of my life and continues to be an influence to me. But I would find it disrespectful to say that I was having trouble accepting that she’s gone. I did have trouble with it in the first year, but she gave me so much, and I try to honor her by being someone she’d be proud of. Making excuses that I wasn’t prepared to lose my very elderly grandmother would not have been respectful of the opportunities she wanted me to have.

  38. Saucy&Sassy says:

    I’m awed that they’re awed. Seriously?

  39. LyZe says:

    I remember the day w+k married and they were in the carriage on the way to the reception. She turned to him and said “Are you happy?” (Yes you could clearly see her say that) but he didn’t say it to her. I think that has always been the essence of their relationship. It was and always has been her job to see that he’s the one that’s happy. That was the agreement. When he’s no longer “happy” with the arrangement he will decide to leave.

    • Well wisher says:

      She would have know that he did not love her, yet she persisted…..

  40. Quarto says:

    Okay, I’m sorry… I love my husband, I rely on him, I think he’s amazing, I still want to bang him… and NOBODY in a marriage of that length can be “in awe” of one another. At that point you’ve seen him hangry. You have seen whatever weird thing he’s inexplicably stupid about. You’ve seen the five year old twerp and the twelve year old pervert about a millimeter below the surface of the 40 year old man. You’ve seen him puking and with diarrhea and wanting to be nannied because of it. And that absolutely goes both ways… this isn’t a criticism of men. It’s an acknowledgement that people are people and deep down we’re all not really that impressive.

    This ridiculous gilding of the lily is coming off increasingly desperate.

  41. Cathalea says:

    Fascinating 🙄

  42. Well Wisher says:

    Most of the article reads like “Whatever gets one through the day?”
    If it is indeed coming from Kate as suggested –
    She is lucky enough to afford to lean into fallacy……
    So be it.

    Except this –
    “Even if Harry were to come crawling back with an apology, it’s hard to imagine William forgiving and forgetting. The only silver lining of this situation is that it’s motivated William to keep his family unit very firmly intact.”
    So, the family that hates together, stays together?
    Is that the premise…..
    The brine of unforgiveness forging togetherness….

    Except that the husband, William intoned via “royal sources” or its equivalent in a moment of ‘weakness?’ that he was willing to speak to his brother, but for “Kate??”

    One has to afford her grace,but I cannot help but opine that – “It couldn’t have happened to a nicer person”.

    He wants out….
    If he finds someone whom he can love and she is willing to take him on with the “baggage”..
    It is FINIS

  43. jferber says:

    So the less time they spend together and the more times Kate is kicked out of going on big trips and makes sneaky side trips in England to steal Egg’s thunder, the better they get along? I do think they’re better apart, but I wouldn’t call that “in sync.” I’d call it pre-divorce detente.
    And “in awe of each other?” They must be thinking of Harry and Meghan.

  44. ales says:

    Marrying a predator who stalked you for 10 plus years, is not a love story of any kind. What a partnership, extreme social climber with a grifter family marries into BRF. She can barely talk or does she drop her ridiculous unintelligible accent behind closed doors. What do they actually have in common, she is totally clueless regarding being a royal. Her idea seems to be, look down on everyone, spend money like crazy, taking luxury holidays multiple times every year, avoid working, feed the tabloids with vile stories about other people and cannot keep “servants”, employees leave very quickly. She is aging badly, her mean girl behavior is showing in her face, no amount of plastic surgery, fillers, botox and wiglets will eliminate her mean girl persona.

  45. AC says:

    When I actually look at power couples in the limelight of course HM, but also the Obamas and Bidens. As couples, they support each other and successfully work together. Meghan, Michelle and Jill are also very intelligent and well spoken. It’s obvious that Harry, Barack and Joe are all proud and passionate about their wives. US Weekly doesn’t even need to tell us that these couples are at awe with each other. Everyone knows.
    With WK.. eh.. Someone here said it in one of the blogs – William’s personality doesn’t just want OK or lukewarm fine he wants blockbuster fireworks 😆.

  46. Gabby says:

    On other posts (maybe the Costner divorce), CBers from the UK expressed surprise at how quickly you can file for divorce in the US and hinted you had to be separated for a longer time to file for divorce in the UK. How long does a couple need to be separated there before divorce proceedings can begin? Are we coming up on that deadline if we use Waity’s move to AC as the “separation date”?
