Princess Kate is too bitter, hurt & insulted to ever be a keen peacemaker again

One of my favorite royal storylines was when the Princess of Wales (then the Duchess of Cambridge) could not STFU about how she was the keenest peacemaker in the family, and she was going to do the most to force her husband and brother-in-law to reconcile. This was in 2021, and Kate used the “peacemaker” storyline for weeks, if not months. The keen peacemaker actually overshadowed Prince Philip’s funeral with her shenanigans, just as she arranged for a special funeral photoshoot with her borrowed jewelry. Sometimes I think back to particular royal storylines and I’m like “did that actually happen?” It did. Anyway, Kate is too lazy to keep up the pretense of being a peacemaker, so her new thing is being a rageaholic like her husband. There have been several stories in recent months about Kate being bitter and full of hate towards the Sussexes. The latest twist is that she’s too bitter to even think about being a keen peacemaker over the holidays!

She was once dubbed the ‘peacemaker’ and believed to be instrumental in helping heal royal rifts. But Kate Middleton’s relationship with her brother-in-law Prince Harry is now so damaged that she won’t be the one to “hold out an olive branch” in time for Christmas, a royal expert has revealed.

Royal commentator Jennie Bond exclusively told Fabulous: “Catherine was deeply hurt by some of the things Harry said about her, particularly in his book, and unfortunately because of these entrenched positions where neither side seems to want to make contact or the first move, I can’t see this rift healing any time soon. Catherine has played the peacemaker in the past and has brought William and Harry together, and I think that comes from her own family, and their values. But I think she has got to a stage whereby she has had to take a step back, things have gone too far, and she feels upset and, quite frankly, hurt and insulted.”

Now, despite months passing since the release of [Spare], Jennie says the trio’s positions haven’t changed and that she doesn’t expect a family reconciliation in time for Christmas.

She said: “I think Catherine was hurt by Harry (and Meghan’s) claim that she made Meghan cry during a fitting for Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress, and again by Meghan’s view, which was relayed by Harry, that she found Catherine and William standoffish, a bit cold, when they first met. After all, we have seen that Catherine is more than ready to give people a hug – even people she has no connection with and will never see again. We must remember that Harry once described Catherine as the sister he never had. Now it seems she is the sister in law he no longer wants to see.”

Jennie says that Kate has not only been hurt by the personal attacks on herself, but those aimed at her husband and the wider royal family too.

She said: “I think Catherine has been badly hurt by Harry’s brutal attacks on William, like his decision to reveal so much of what went on during their disagreements, and by the claim that someone in the royal family questioned the tone of unborn Archie’s skin, it was such a generalised claim that it hurt the whole family. I think Catherine and William have jointly decided that they will carry on with family life and work, and for most of the time, they don’t think about Harry very much, and I expect vice versa. I can’t see an olive branch being extended from either side any time soon.”

[From The Sun]

What changed from “the keen peacemaker” storyline of 2021 versus the “Kate is too bitter and hateful to ever make peace” storyline of 2023? The change was, as Jennie Bond says, Harry’s memoir. Harry wrote so carefully, but he really left the impression that Kate was just a sh-tstirring a–hole, someone who instigates drama, someone deeply unfriendly and someone who was immediately jealous of Meghan. I also think time has changed everything – the Windsors now realize that Harry isn’t coming back AND he’s pissed at them. As always, the royal experts’ framing is wild – the Sussexes have shown everyone that they have moved on thoroughly, but the Windsors still cling to this false narrative that they’re in charge.

    The tabloids have already told this story but just added the Xmas bit despite the fact Halloween hasn’t even happened yet.

    The tabloids are bringing this up b/c they can’t openly criticize Billy and Katie and mentioning H&M in any capacity draws clicks. Plus I think with the Middletons being in the press, H&M serves as a distraction for their readers so they won’t look too deep into her family.

    • Flower says:

      Gotta get that Balmoral narrative going so that they have a ready made reason why H&M ‘are not invited’…

      • First comment says:

        Exactly! The tabloids need clicks and the present royals don’t draw them…so,let’s write something about Kate, H and M… with the Middletons approval, of course…I guess we all should feel sorry for poor saintly Kate…. 🙄🙄🙄

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Is Charles even going to Balmoral; I thought he hung out at Birkhall.

        I hope I am not getting dementia but I thought the British Royal Family spent Christmas at Sandringham.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Right @BayTampaBay. Balmoral/ Birkhall in late summer to early fall. The British royals have traditionally spent their Christmases at Sandringham, with the famous Christmas Day walk to St. Mary’s Church, an anticipated feature for the assembled public.

    • Pinkosaurus says:

      That is some cold and stale tea. We knew the tabloids would really start running dry and if they are already writing their Christmas articles in October, I don’t think it’s going to get any more interesting. Even the vilest derangers are going to stop clicking after two or three months of this. Yawn.

      • snaggletooth says:

        This is the real takeaway. If the British press are determined not to write anything too tawdry about the royals, then this stale tea is all they have. There are no big events coming up any time soon, certainly nothing with any credible chance of Harry attending. The anniversary of the QE2 was a shocking nothingburger. So what now? Is it really going to be three months of speculating about whether Harry will be snubbed at Christmas??

      • Lady Digby says:

        I think Snaggletooth is right on the button(s) with this. Jennie Bond, who is supposed to be an actual proper journalist, is just knocking out nonsense for money just like all the other ‘royal experts’ who will say anything for a nice wedge of cash and a byline. The Private Eye regularly mocks this sort of stuff by printing meaningless articles credited to Phil Space usually ending with the line “will this do?”

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Oh NOES!!!!
      She won’t be a peacemaker before CHRISTMAS?!?


      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I wonder if she will get to play at being Christmas Liberace this year with her sad little carole concert that NO ONE is interested in.

      • Jais says:

        So I think there is another Christmas concert this year. Will they all wear burgundy again?

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Someone needs to be asking the real questions.

      Will she be too upset to pre-record a video of her laughing mindlessly while sitting at a piano before pretending to playing a song?

      Will she be too upset to force everyone in the RF to come in coordinating clothes to watch the video together as though that’s an actual performance???



      • Smart&Messy says:

        Yes, with all the horrid things going on in the world, we need the anchor of Kate’s piano recital.

        And yet, I’m not sure there will be a carol concert at all this year. That would be the third in consecutive years and she can’t let us expect her to do it every single year.

      • Iolanthe says:

        Somebody please put a pinecone or a sprig of holly on that piano stool so that she can’t park her bony derriere on it

      • roooth says:

        Another question begging to be answered: Has Kkkate practiced on the piano enough in the last year so she can play more than 2 octaves on the piano? Because anyone watching her previous lame fakery knows she never gets more than an octave away from Middle C on either hand.

        It’s fun watching her pretend to play while her hands stay in the center of the keyboard, but anyone listening can hear that SOMEONE is playing higher and lower notes that Kate’s hands never go near.

        It’s like they don’t even try to hide their bullshit

    • Wannabefarmer says:

      I would just like to know, given what is happening in Europe with climate change and the dying off of olive trees, where are these people getting olive branches? Are they live branches or dead ones? Are they aware they are contributing to the shortage of olive oil by continuing to pull branches from the trees. Can they not, please, ‘spare’ a thought for the trees?

    • jame says:

      kate is one step away from being queen, that was her goal and she used alot of people on her way up including harry for years, she cares about no one except herself and her social climbing family

    • nona93 says:

      Look it’s easy. Waity Katy eventually seduced a weak William whom she had targeted relentlessly, egged on no doubt by her snobbish and ambitious working-class mother Carole. Then along comes a bi-racial and more beautiful and talented American sister-in-law whose strong personality and life experience makes Kate’s inadequacies stand out by a mile especially when Meghan was called “The new People’s Princess” after Diana.
      From then on it was brutal – Meghan had to be destroyed to protect Kate and the monarchy who are spending millions to make Kate relevant and teach her how to project herself as a future Queen Consort. I can not get my head around this girl being curtsied to and addressed as “Your Royal Highness” when she is an immature pretender.
      Time editor in chief and CEO Edward Felsenthal wrote in his letter to readers that Harry and Meghan have “catalysed essential conversations on topics from mental health to misinformation”.
      The Royals made the biggest mistake ever when they disenfranchised Meghan and they will pay for it like you wouldn’t believe.

  2. Tessa says:

    Kate is a self righteous hypocrite. Harry and Meghan set the record straight. Kate could have denied the story about Meghan making her cry. Kate could not conceal her being a mean girl taking threatening steps to Meghan. That photo shoot picture at Philips funeral is creepy.

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Right? She looks like the young widow whose ancient husband died under mysterious circumstances a la Dynasty style.

      And she’s wearing the murder weapon Dear god her hair pin! She poisoned him! Follow that car! What do you mean diplomatic immunity? You mean she’s going to get away with her? Again? What do you mean get away with it again? Dear god, she’s a black widow. She will strike again. 🎶 DUN DUN DUUUN 🎶

      Next season on dynasty, the duchess’s lies catch up to her. Has she finally met her match?

      • BlueNailsBetty says:


      • Smart&Messy says:

        Meanwhile, in Bucklebury, her mean mother is calling any tabloid who would listen to how the duchess is ready to find her new soulmate. Should an old billionaire be interested.

        By the way, I totally think that Carole should be working furiously on finding a high-profile or very rich guy for Kate. Kate needs to jump ship quickly before she is buried in bad press during the divorce. There must be some older rich guy out there who is interested in being the future king’s stepdad. (Tom Cruise?)

      • Interested Gawker says:


      • Cairidh says:

        She’d never remarry. She’d have to give up the princess title which she’s been desparate for her whole life, and her mother was desperate for since she herself was a teenager.

    • Nic919 says:

      That closeup has some serious photoshop too. Her neck doesn’t look that smooth. But Chris Jackson made some money on it and so he will continue to deceive the public and soothing Kate’s fragile ego.

    • StillDouchesOfCambridge says:

      Kate is a total meangirl. She tried to make Meghan feel inadequate by staying cold when Meg showed her warmth, like she didnt have manners or make her feel like she was ignorant of etiquette, make her feel like she was out of her place. Commoner Kate is so full of BS. She thought Harry wouldve sided with her and thought she could get into Harry’s brain to bully out the black woman from the firm. little did she know… Anyway, Kate was never a girl’s girl. I never heard of Kate’s longtime friends – she probably doesnt have any, except for Rose Hanbury of course lol

    • Eurydice says:

      I believe that Kate is a horrible person, but I don’t believe this story. A mean girl doesn’t give a rat’s ass about peacemaking and I think Kate has many more problems with keeping her marriage together than with whatever Harry said in his book.

  3. Flower says:

    Kate is hurt by the truth, her conscience, that she couldn’t bully a biracial woman with impunity and of course her failing marriage.

  4. Tessa says:

    Sorry Kate harry won’t go near you until you apologize publicly to Meghan. Kate playing victim is pathetic. What family values does keen practice.

  5. Oh dear did the poor sausage get her little feelings hurt because Harry told the truth about her? Harry her imaginary love? Too bad so sad. The Sussexes have moved on but yeah let’s keep their names in so they can cover for others right now with this fairytale.

    • Cassie says:

      The way Kate is looking at Harry in that second photo is quite telling isn’t it ?
      No wonder she hated Meghan , she didn’t want to share .

  6. DaniLou32 says:

    I think how Harry wrote about Kate in Spare was really clever; he said a lot about her without saying anything.

    I often think about how disappointed Harry must have been in Kate and her carry on. On a certain level I’d imagine that he expected it from his father and brother, but maybe not from Kate. I always thought it was interesting that he didn’t interact with Kate at all at the Queen’s funeral and walked right passed her when getting into his seat. Harry has serious beef with Kate, and she’s terrified it’s all going to come out someday. The crying story is the tip of the iceberg there.

    • BQM says:

      I think is where his ghostwriter was instrumental. (An shows why they’re so important in memoirs.) I’m sure Harry is pretty angry and my view is the ghostwriter helped shape his emotions into really well crafted vignettes. It was all very calm, no attacks. Played it very smart.

      • AMTC says:

        @BQM yes, especially remembering how much was edited and not included in Spare because H decided it would be too explosive and hurtful. Yet he got the message across. J.R. Moehringer is a masterful ghostwriter.

    • Jais says:

      It really was clever. Not that much was actually said about her, very few descriptions except she seemed sweet and liked clothes. Then, once Meghan arrived, it was just descriptions of her actions and things she said. But whew it painted a picture. Was it just after the honeymoon where they talked things out and found out Kate and William were mad about hormones and Easter presents? Even the press has never touched that ridiculous easter present thing.

      • Nic919 says:

        He did make sure to show that she thought the Nazi uniform was hilarious.

      • Cairidh says:

        He said she was warm and outgoing. Which is opposite to what people usually say about her – that she’s cold, and shy and introverted.

    • Nic919 says:

      After the commonwealth service there is a photo of them walking out and Harry is behind William and Kate and he looks very angry. His look is in Kate’s direction and he did not seem happy because of what she did. And earlier when kate did the snub, you can seeing Harry looking back and forth looking concerned for Meghan but also a bit astonished that kate snubbed her.

      Harry included stories like the lip gloss for a reason. He wanted to paint kate and a shallow snob. Same with the hormone story.

      • First comment says:

        I have the impression that Harry was aware that Kate and her family were instrumental for many of the leaks. Yes, KP was responsible for several leaks for serious matters such as their refuge in Canada and their decision to leave but all the other constant leaks? Definitely, Kate and her family. They were really threatened by the comparisons between the 2 dutchess..

    • Becks1 says:

      It was EXTREMELY clever. he said a lot without saying a whole lot. honestly, my whole impression of Kate changed for the worse after reading Spare (and it wasnt like I had a great opinion of her to begin with.)

      We got the image of someone who:
      -is interested in shopping and nothing else
      -“howled” when she saw Harry’s nazi costume
      -made no efforts to reach out to harry once she was married (if she ever did before) – there’s that sad story about Harry waiting for an invite to 1A after George was born and no invite ever came
      -she is an entitled snob – expecting Meghan to curtsy to her in private, expecting Easter gifts (wtf lol)
      -was at the very least cold and not friendly towards Meghan; quite possibly outright mean and unwelcoming.

      so she’s shallow, ignorant, cold, entitled and mean. no wonder Meghan didn’t have a lot of use for her, lol.

    • Harper says:

      Kate doesn’t appear often in Spare, but when she does it isn’t the flattering descriptions she is used to. She went from someone who couldn’t be drawn into royal gossip, to laughing at the Nazi costume, white-knuckling her chair because of her hormones, and overdressing for dinner at NottCott. And when Harry spills the beans that her husband is a violent physical abuser, people naturally started wondering whether she was a victim of his abuse too. Harry burst the fairy tale bubble that she spent years trying to preserve by smiling till her face fell off. With an official split on the horizon, it’s no wonder she’s given up the fake peacemaker storyline.

      • Nic919 says:

        Years ago Harry was attributed to have been the one who called her the limpet. I think he knew who she was from early on.

        And those photos above of kate giving dreamy looks to Harry, in front of William, is just bizarre. And Harry is looking away from her in all of them.

    • yellowy says:

      >> I often think about how disappointed Harry must have been in Kate and her carry on. On a certain level I’d imagine that he expected it from his father and brother, but maybe not from Kate

      My assumption is the opposite, because by the time Kate married William, Harry had her number. He wasn’t invited around to 1A at all. She got the ring and all pretences of her cultivating a friendship or familial relationship with him were over.

    • windyriver says:

      @DaniLou32 – the fashion shoot stunt Kate pulled at Philipp’s funeral was disgusting. Despite his grandfather’s flaws, Harry loved and respected him. Very likely Harry didn’t know about Kate’s posing at the time, but certainly he’d know when those photos came out. That by itself would be enough for him to never so much as look in Kate’s direction again, but it’s really just one of a host of things for which she deserves to be treated as invisible by him.

      Remember too how Kate attempted to burnish her peacemaker credentials (IIRC there were articles about it afterwards) by rushing to walk with Harry and Will post funeral, until someone (probably Will) very noticeably told her to get lost.

      • ChattyCath says:

        @windyriver those funeral pictures took my breath away as in ‘how could she?’ The Queen was mourning while Kat was preening… someone should make a nursery rhyme

      • Nic919 says:

        The video footage shows how the other family members didn’t stop for photos and just walked in the chapel. Meanwhile kate was standing off the the side for photos after the photo shoot in the car.

        No one else had photos taken head on like Kate did and I am sure the entire family noticed this. William was pissed with her after the service as she tried to nose in his conversation with Harry and that photo shoot was part of it.

    • BlueNailsBetty says:

      “ I always thought it was interesting that he didn’t interact with Kate at all at the Queen’s funeral and walked right passed her when getting into his seat. Harry has serious beef with Kate…”

      Hard agree. I think the reason Harry went easy on Kate in his memoir is a couple things: 1. he stayed focused on his bio family (Elizabeth, Charles, William) and 2. even though he dislikes Kate he knows she’s at the mercy of William and he knows that is a bad place to be.

      But make no mistake, Harry knows *exactly* how Kate treated Meghan and how Kate manipulates the media into doing her dirty work.

  7. Miranda says:

    You’d think they’d really want to try and lay off any references to Kate’s “family values”, now that we know that her family’s values involve scamming hardworking people with impunity. But here we are.

    Anyway, it’s not as though Harry was writing what Meghan told him to write. Being with her just opened his eyes to the awfulness that was always there. Awfulness which Meghan herself, notably, tried to simply endure for as long as she could. I don’t want to meet the man who would see his wife being treated so terribly and simply ignore it (or worse, join in to some extent. Hi, William).

    • AMTC says:

      Yes, those laudable Middleton family values.

      • ChattyCath says:

        @AMTC no one has mentioned that horrible ‘Double Duchess’ tale from CarolE when she tried to manufacture a romance between Harry and Pippa. The plotting addled her brain.

  8. equality says:

    So Kate is upset by “his decision to reveal so much of what went on during their disagreements.”? She’s not upset that her husband was physically violent during those disagreements. She’s not upset that a lie was told about Meghan over and over; just that H&M told the true story. She needs to give up the “peacekeeper” crap. A “peacekeeper” would have told PW he needed to apologize and would have been publicly apologizing herself.

    • Chloe says:

      She’s not upset her husband got physically violent because she’s probably seen it more than once and maybe even experienced it herself. I mean, royal reporters keep talking about their “rows” and disagreements and how kate gives it as good as she gets.

    • SURE says:

      “She’s not upset that a lie was told about Meghan over and over..” Never read any articles making this claim so I’ll assume K was quite happy that a lie was told about M over and over. It’s a not so subtle admission of guilt.

  9. Tessa says:

    Kate was all flirty with harry and he looked uncomfortable. I don’t think he was ever really close to Kate. He was.being polite.

    • Flower says:

      Harry was simply being welcoming and respectful to his SIL.

      An attention starved Kate misinterpreted his actions and bullied all his gf’s culminating in the tormenting of Meghan.

      Kate is upset that these truths disrupted her squeaky clean image.

  10. Brassy Rebel says:

    Apparently, Christmas is the new goal line stand. Will H&M be invited for the holidays at Balmoral? We all know the answer to that and that they don’t want to be anyway. But they’ve got to keep up the pretense that the Sussexes are withering on the vine in Montecito and dying to return for more abuse.

    • s808 says:

      RRs have to be bored of this. How many times are they gonna rehash the same situations over and over again?

      • L84Tea says:

        It’s just a never-ending loop of holidays, birthdays, Trooping of the Colors, will they or won’t they be invited, blah, blah, blah that will never end. They’ve only been through a few cycles of it so far, and it was a little more complicated when the queen was alive. But now that she’s gone, hopefully a couple more cycles of dust from H&M will make it start to sink in.

    • Dot Gingell says:

      Why is Balmoral being mentioned when the RF always spends Christmas at Sandringham?

      • Chloe says:

        Balmoral or Sandringham, it doesn’t matter. I hope they spend Christmas with the Spencers with all of Harry’s Spencer cousins present and Doria invited too, so the royal reporters really have something to cry about.

      • BlueNailsBetty says:

        Flower just mixed up the estates. It’s not a big deal.

        @Chloe. OMG, that would be beyond delicious!

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      I can’t imagine flying “home” for Christmas when you have little ones.

      You decorate the house together. You have your own traditions. You watch your favorite Christmas movies together and snuggle in cozy pjs. You have hot coco and leave a plate out for Santa. They have all their favorite and comfort things to help them through a very exciting night.

      Why would you want to do that in another persons house?

      • Brassy Rebel says:

        Especially when they make it abundantly clear they don’t want your biracial wife and kids around. You make your own extended family in your new home. You maintain your sanity.

      • Grace Yancy says:

        Let’s get one thing straight!
        Kkkate was never a peacekeeper.
        Kkkate was always a hater.
        William started sniffing roses and Kkkate turned to Harry for more than comfort. When Harry spurned her and married Meghan, she turned her mean girl persona up a notch.
        Kkkate stood by and let the BM tell lies about Harry’s wife.
        She’s void of any personality!

  11. ML says:

    The minute K lost the ability (due to H&M using their own voices) to complain about H&M, and explain situations that made herself look good at H&M’s expense, that is when she stopped being the keen peacemaker of her fever dreams.

    • Chloe says:

      I do feel like the release of spare was the end of the kate the peacemaker storyline but not because harry revealed too much. Simply because everyone got to read for themselves that him and kate were never that close.

      I do wonder if Kate maybe felt differently about that than Harry though? Like, in her twisted mind she thought she was important to him. I keep getting the impression that kate wants to be the centre of Harry’s universe and she just isn’t. The way he talked about her in Spare was kind off passive.

      • Becks1 says:

        I think Kate either believes or desperately wants to believe her own PR – so she thinks she’s a steely marshmallow, she thinks she’s the lynchpin of the monarchy, she thinks she’s the only who can mend the rift between Harry and his family.

        when in reality, to Harry, she was almost a non-player character, you know? It was clear he didn’t like her treatment of Meghan, but it was also clear that she wasn’t really a major factor in his life, which probably came as a surprise to Kate.

      • Ace says:

        I wouldn’t be surprised if Kate thought that Harry being nice to her during engagements, much nicer than her husband was, meant much more than Harry being a gentleman. It was clear in Spare that Harry didn’t think much of her or about her. She might have felt they had some type of special relationship and it must have been a shock when she realised it was all in her head.

      • Laura D says:

        I always felt Kate fantasised that both Princes were head over heels in love with her and I do believe she was trying to cultivate that image with the public. Hence all those simpering photos with Harry while her husband stood right next to her. That image was shattered when Meghan came on the scene and the reality hit her hard. Both Princes were totally infatuated with Meghan. In truth Kate’s fantasy was Meghan’s reality.

      • Robert Phillips says:

        The Queen and Charles made William get married. Not saying to Kate. But he had to get married so he could have children. Kate is the only one who would say yes. Even she has to know this. And you know that none of the other royals were nice to her. It was just Harry’s personality to be friendly to everybody. Kate has always been a mean girl. Her mom also. But when Harry got married that was Kate’s last person who didn’t just ignore her. So of course she tried to get rid of Meghan. The thing she never realized though was if she had teamed up with Meghan. William couldn’t divorce her. But Kate doesn’t know how to be friends with anyone.

  12. Laura D says:

    Oh come on! The woman was NEVER a ‘peace maker’ in the first place. As for the bridesmaids fittings it’s been how many years now? She and/or her mother should have kept their mouths shut. Meghan didn’t say anything about the ‘argument’ at the time and if they had allowed her to stay in the institution we would still be under the impression that “Meghan made Kate cry.”

    If Kate had been a ‘peace maker’ she would have made damn sure William and the children had made a brief attendance to Lili’s birthday party. As far as we know the woman has never met Lili yet she professes to ‘love’ babies! Louis was at home alone on Lili’s birthday and instead of letting him meet his cousins they had him rattling around home alone!

    Kate has always been a bitter and vicious when it comes to Meghan. The only reason Kate’s changing the narrative is because far too many people have seen the Oprah interview, read Harry’s book, watched the docu-series and saw the appalling way Meghan was treated at QEII’s funeral.

    • First comment says:

      Not to mention her complete indifference towards newborn archie during the polo match despite her so called “love for babies “

      • Jais says:

        Yep, the polo pictures are what always gets me. She wouldn’t even let her kids interact with Archie, despite Louis trying. There’s Kate with a whole blanket laid out and Meghan standing there holding Archie.

      • MaryContrary says:

        Yes she looked like a complete beyotch at that polo match.

      • Nic919 says:

        She ignored her own nephew. There is not even one photo of kate approaching Meghan to speak with her, even briefly. The excuse of pretending to be busy with Louis was a joke, especially as Louis seemed curious about the baby and kate still kept him away.

  13. Moira's Rose's Garden says:

    What precipitated the penning of this article? Seriously though does anyone care what Buttons thinks?

    As far as being butthurt by Harry’s memoir, the Anne Lamont quote comes to mind: “You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.”

    • Jay says:

      That’s a perfect quote, @Moira! As for what precipitated this particular story, I think that a. The tabloids need to involve the Sussexes in order to get clicks on any royal story but also b. Kate is getting in line with her husband and his incandescence towards Harry and Meghan. I think she was told off for trying to centre herself as the one to “bring the brothers together”, her behaviour at Philip’s funeral and her attempted hijacking of Diana’s memorial. I think her position in the family may be even more precarious now than it ever was.

    • Christine says:

      This is what always happens when Cannot and Willnot disappear for another school break. It’s time to vomit up anything they can possibly attach to Meghan and Harry, so no one notices that the Wails are lazy on their best days, and completely absent the rest of the time. The uptick in articles is extremely noticeable, every single time.

      It’s like they are performing a slight of hand, so the people in the U.K. who pay for this fucking embarrassment of a family won’t start giving a whiff of revolution.

      The Wails truly are the modern embodiment of “let them eat cake”.

  14. Jay says:

    The keen peacemaker stupidity again! I think that Kate got flack behind the scenes for trying to centre herself at Philip’s funeral, and that’s why she dropped the act. Also, Harry’s book made it clear that he has never been close with Kate, and that she is a total pill to be around.

    What’s making me laugh is the attempt to embiggen Kate’s meagre attempts- yes, she decided to be the keenest peacemaker for a few weeks in 2021, but now (having accomplished nothing) she’s “moving on” from that because the feelings are “too entrenched”. AKA Harry didn’t immediately beg back in to this wretched family to be the third wheel in Kate’s marriage.

  15. Nic919 says:

    Kate was a mean girl bully during the funeral walkabout, well before the book was printed. She’s just a bitch and Harry downplayed a lot.

    Anyone who leaves their in-law as a target of a smear campaign is simply a despicable person.

    • Iolanthe says:

      Cheap, vulgar , greedy , nasty ..William scraped the bottom.of the barrel when he picked this female to be the mother of his children . He might have been a more civilized person if he married someone cultured and compassionate. I hope those ghastly Middleton traits don’t get passed down to her kids and she isnt teaching them by example . I wonder how she was to Chelsey and Cressida before Meghan

    I knew I was missing something in my life and there it is – the vulva necklace.

    • Renae says:

      Oh Lord! Now that image is burned into my brain!
      So fitting for Kate. She thinks her kitty-cat is a precious, jewel encrusted thing!

  17. Digital Unicorn says:

    Spare took a match to the carefully built image that everyone, esp Mumbles, spent years cultivating. As we’ve seen in the press since the narrative around her and Peggy has changed – its not as fawning as it was previously. The tabs are low key backing up the picture he painted of the Wails. That and the fact that the tabs have burned the Middleton’s says it all about what is coming and I think Mumbles will get outed as the one who made the comment about Archie’s skin colour – she’s going to take the hit for it (regardless of whether it was her or not).

    • MsIam says:

      This whole article seems to be saying “Kate is the problem”. Just like the other articles say that ” William is the problem”. Now who would want to put all the blame on the Wails? Who wants to duck their own responsibility for this mess and even look like the victim? Is it the poor lonely grandpa who won’t get to cuddle with his grandkids at Christmas? And I’m not talking about Sir Toxic, the Earl of Rosarito.

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        Charles gave Archie a firm handshake at Archie’s christening. That handshake was meant to be shared with any siblings that came along.

        Charles has clearly done his duty as a doting grandfather to his black grandchildren.


    • Nic919 says:

      Spare has done more long term damage to Kate’s image than anything else. Coming from Harry, these stories will be seen as credible and won’t be discounted as much as if it came from Meghan.

      And including Kate in the Nazi uniform story sets her up as a shallow racist just as thoughtless as any of the other rich aristos. By the time we get to the Easter present nonsense, kate is a cold uppity bitch who has fully accepted and adopted the rude snobbery of the royals. Her middle class roots and values were fully erased.

  18. YeahRight says:

    Harry doesn’t want to reconcile with them if they still refuse to acknowledge the hurt they caused him and his wife mostly his wife. That’s that on that. Coat hanger was never a peacemaker put of her hatred towards Meghan is how well Harry treated Meghan focused on Meghan. Coat hanger could no longer be flirty with her BIL because he was no longer their third wheel.

  19. Becks1 says:

    Kate has always been a mean girl to Meghan and we’ve seen it pretty much from day one.

    • Jaded says:

      She’s pretty much been a mean girl from her adolescence on to any number of women including her own family members Eug and Bea, but Meghan got the brunt of it. Kate seems like a deeply insecure person whose only way of covering up for it is to crap all over any woman she sees as “better” (i.e. prettier, smarter, charismatic, hard-working). That and her overweening arrogance shows clearly she’s a classic narcissist.

      • Becks1 says:

        the weird thing is, I think she’s always been a mean girl to anyone who couldn’t help her in her quest to marry William. That’s why the only friends we hear about for her are women who were part of that set originally IIRC. And once she got close to him, she froze out every other girl who might be competition.

        so why was she such a mean girl to Beatrice and Eugenie? Those two are younger, yes, but could have helped her in the aristo/royal sets. they weren’t threats to her, they weren’t competition – it wasn’t like William was going to mary one of them, you know? Was it just jealousy, pettiness?

        I didn’t realize until yesterday that Eugenie went to Marlborough. I know she is 8 years younger so there would have been little overlap, but surely once Kate started dating William at St Andrews and Beatrice was still at Marlborough she would have heard stories, right? Wonder if she heard too many stories?

      • First comment says:

        @Becks1, it’s not so weird for her to be a mean girl towards the York’s girl if you consider that for her, social status is very important..those girls “outranked” for years while she was stalking William and they continued to do it, even after her marriage to him whenever he wasn’t present… I mean, there were several occasions during the years before Meghan that she didn’t show up to an event to avoid to curtsy to them…

    • Nic919 says:

      Literally day one if we accept the shopping story as true. Even William wasn’t acting poorly toward her when they were just dating.

      But Meghan was seen walking to the stores she got blamed by the tabloids for seeking attention when she did so. Kate knew that Meghan was likely to walk near the office or a tabloid to get to the stores and she still refused to offer her a ride. Or even warn her of the tabloids.

      Kate has lived her entire life hating women who were competition. And she focused on Meghan from day one because she knew Meghan was smarter, prettier and more popular.

      When she was making fun of the much younger Beatrice and Eugenie in the dating years, that was confirmation of her jealous insecure nature. These were William’s cousins ffs and it’s not like they were looking to sleep with William. But she has only one gear and it was to protect her territory.

  20. dose of reality says:

    W&K are done with H&M yet all they do is talk about them. Do they not see how this just shows they are obsessed over them? Maybe try moving on instead of proving every thing said about you is true by doing this. It is crazy that this is all they talk about. I feel so bad for their kids-I cannot imagine how their home life is. The anger, pettiness, jealousy, etc.

  21. SueBarbri33 says:

    I think that, more than anything, Spare exposed the dynamics at the heart of the RF. Specifically, Harry showed us that he was never really all that close to William or Kate, even before Meghan entered the picture. I think Kate honestly believed the hype in the pre-Meghan days, honestly believed all those press stories about how close she was to Harry and all of that, when none of that was ever true. I think Harry was nicer to Kate than 99% of the people in the palaces (including William), so she therefore assumed that meant he liked and trusted her and held her in high esteem, but Spare showed us all that he only tolerated her because she was his brother’s wife. In addition, Harry also painted William as a reluctant groom in his book–he didn’t say as much, but he made it clear that William was drunk/hungover on his wedding day and he does say that William never discussed getting engaged to Kate before he proposed to her. I remember reading that and thinking that those disclosures wouldn’t go down well with Kate (or any woman, if I’m honest).

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      It shows the shallowness of what constitutes a deep and abiding relationship for this valid self absorbed woman.

      Harry reminded William not to forget his wife!
      Harry shared his umbrella with Kate!
      Harry made a joke that made Kate laugh!

      Is she always joker level smiling in photos now to “show” Harry that she’s happy and he wasn’t the one to make her laugh?

  22. BeesRule says:

    Harry was the glue that kept Will and Kate together. Until Meghan came along Kate was the center of attention and most importantly make attention. She seemed extra cozy with Harry, always sidled up to him, lots of joking and laughing. Then not only did she lose him, Meghan’s megawatt star power, beauty, poise, style, grace, enthusiasm, intelligence, diligence, creativity, and work ethic eclipsed Kate completely. She is jealous on multiple levels, and Will is jealous of his brother landing a catch out of both their leagues plus a way out of their shared nightmare. Will probably thought his life was dandy with his wife that ticked all the required boxes, an heir and two spares, a sidepiece, and his younger brother firmly under his thumb. Will’s secret lust for his sister-in-law and need to control everyone and everything will be his undoing. Kate’s competitive, vengeful backstabbing has exposed her dark side for all to see. They blame everyone but themselves for their toxic relationship.

    • L84Tea says:

      This right here is a PERFECT summation of the entire situation. Excellent analysis.

    • MoxyLady007 says:

      Meghan eclipsed the whole family. She’s truly an amazing human being. And I am saying this to snark on the family and in no way detract from
      Meghan’s charisma and loving heart and incredible work ethic and soul deep beauty.

      But it’s easy to eclipse things that don’t sparkle or shine. Simply standing there having a shadow will do it. And Meghan’s shadow is a long one.

      She did more in her small amount of time in the firm than Kate has accomplished since being there.

    • BlueNailsBetty says:

      William lusts after Meghan. Kate lusts after Harry. William and Kate are deeply messed up people.

    • Gabby says:

      “plus a way out of their shared nightmare”. This is key.

  23. Maxine Branch says:

    Harry and Meghan both have moved on. They are creating their own Christmas memories for their family. The Windsor clan are living in the past. The Sussexes will not subject their children to the nonsense they call a Christmas lunch. They have nothing to offer the Sussexes which would entice them to cross the Atlantic to visit with them.

    These gutter gossipers created all this noise about Meghan’s mom and the true grifters and dishonest folks are living within their mist, the Middleton’s. Kate obviously had the hots for Harry, you could see it in their every interaction when he was in her presence as a third wheel.

    Since the gossipers know the Sussexes will not be coming to this nonsense they are creating a narrative to suggest they are not invited. Maybe the British folks will buy this nonsense but the greater public is aware the Sussexes are living, thriving and will not be hanging out with these folks anytime soon. Move on UK gossipers, the Sussex train is on another track.

  24. Kittenmom says:

    Kate’s Middleton family values? HA! Social snobbery and grift!

    • Christine says:

      Right? Suddenly the Middletons are the bar all other families should hope to reach.

      Hard pass.

  25. Amy Bee says:

    Kate’s just upset that true character has been exposed to the world. She was never the peacemaker and she used the rift and smear campaign to boost her image.

  26. Em says:

    Kate was never nice or sweet, she deceived Harry and to a greater extent the rest of the royal family by acting as such until she was married in and then her wings grew so big she immediately dropped the act, also as a girlfriend I’m sure she had no idea of the workings of the royal family and thought Harry was important in the grand scheme of things and kept him close then promptly dumped him when she saw how the family treated him, perhaps she began to think herself better than Or more royal than him.

    also there will be no reconciliation, the sussexes have moved on and quite possibly forgiven these people but you underestimate how bitter and twisted the wales are, the bitterness is literally what is holding their sham of a marriage together, the royal experts / reporters know this but theres no sussex news or access to sussex kids to stalk so theyll keep on recycling stupid stories like this

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      I read a quote once about Ethel Kennedy (married to Bobby, Sr.) where it was said that once she was married in, she became “more Kennedy than thou”

      For Kate, possibly it became, “more Windsor-Mountbatten than thou” to Harry. 🤷

      It’s been my personal experience that “married in” folk try too hard. Note: I said MY personal experience

    • Jaded says:

      Kate’s wings grew too big but, like Icarus, she flew too close to the sun and they melted, hurling her back to earth. She hasn’t shown one iota of integrity despite all she has gained materially by marrying into the BRF, and all her mean-spirited, jealous, manipulative and self-serving behaviour is coming back to haunt her now.

  27. Lady Digby says:

    After the video of her egging Will on as they both harassed that photographer who accidentally crossed their paths it is clear that that she pours oil on fire rather than calming things down! She’s a mean girl and very competitive and jealous. She is bitter over the mess both she and Will have made of their own marriage. She doesn’t have a generous bone in her body so ain’t no peacemaker!

  28. Lau says:

    Sophie is the new keen peacemaker so they had to find a new personality for Kate. Weird to go for the “as incandescent as her husband” one though.

  29. Sunday says:

    This story seems like an expansion of what could be the start of the separation rollout last week. Kate is different now, she’s no longer a keen peacemaker (lol); she’s become bitter. That could be read as inching towards “Will no longer recognizes the Kate he once loved so dearly. The PoW has let bitterness over the fallout from Sussexit cloud her every move. Will is concerned that Kate just can’t let it go and fears the keen peacemaker he married is gone forever.”

    Side note but I do wonder if Kate really pissed someone off with her little photoshoot at Philip’s funeral and that’s why (I believe) she hasn’t worn any royal jewelry other than this necklace since.

    • Becks1 says:

      I can’t recall from Phillip’s death to the Queen’s death, but after the Queen’s death we’ve only seen her wear pieces from the royal collection that she had already worn, so maybe they were already stored in KP or something. Nothing new.

      I do think she ticked off someone with that photoshoot at the funeral. William was already at Sandringham or Wood Farm before then (I believe the zooms started from Sandringham in Feb or March 2021) but that may have been just normal separate lives (I mean for all we know William was at Wood Farm the whole time and just refused to go to Anmer to zoom) – but we’ve talked about how something seemed to switch in their relationship around that time and I wonder if it was her behavior at the funeral.

      • MoxyLady007 says:

        I mean maybe it was her tacky ass at the funeral. That’s hella embarrassing and I’m sitting in the mountains of America cringing. Not married to her.

        But let’s be real. William and his choices and actions have always set the tone in their relationship. Kate might have been upset about the Rose pegging but she also was never going to walk away. She might be in a snit but this is the way of the aristos or whatever. They are deeply bored unfulfilled and sexually repressed so all they do is have sex with random people to feel something.

        Maybe when William had Covid he decided he liked life better without Kate in it. And like an emotionally healthy individual, he treated her with resentment and contempt for him having chosen her to be in his life.

    • BlueNailsBetty says:

      Oh absolutely. The day of the coronation was the day Camilla locked down the jewelry. I loathe Camilla but think the jewelry war is hilarious.

      • CherryBerry says:

        It was around the Queens funeral that I saw articles describing a back and forth between Camilla and Kate. I believe this is when she locked the vault to the jewelry and perhaps was behind that story about how Kate didn’t like to wear jewels like Camilla does.
        Edit: btw where are all those jewels that the queen supposedly left her?

  30. @BelizeEmpower says:

    Jenny slipped up and revealed the truth in this one sentence, “Now it seems she is the sister in law he no longer wants to see.” Yeah, Harry is standing his ground & they have no way around that. He’s done with The Hateful Four and everyone is now living with regret…even the tabloids and their reporters…not much to leak anymore except regurgitating the same stories over and over.

  31. Beverley says:

    Beeyotch successfully used the played-out, overworked Angry Black Woman trope against Duchess Meghan. Many whites prefer to view us as emotional, scary, aggressive people. So of course KKKhate saw that as a plausible lie that many would swallow whole. And they certainly have! That’s one reason KKKhate’s so pissed. The lie would be canon, had Meghan not corrected it on Ophrah’s show. How dare a Black woman contradict an English rose? KKKhate will STAY mad.

  32. L4Frimaire says:

    I think Harry is done with Kate and doesn’t have much time or respect for her at all. The way he came between her and Meghan at the funeral walkabout when she started coming towards Meghan and how he blanked her in St. George’s chapel showed he was done with her.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yeah, Harry kinda always kept his distance from Kate esp as the press used to write about how Kate used to behave towards him at public events. She was constantly throwing herself at him and would basically glow at any attention she got from him.

      That walkabout was very interesting – William’s BL was relaxed toward her, Kates however; her BL screamed anger and aggression. When I watch it back, its clear Meghan was avoiding Kate more then William. The Wails are very aggressive people, I fear for those kids and what kind of behaviours they are being exposed to.

      • Nic919 says:

        That is similar to how they were during the commonwealth service. Kate was the one who did the obvious snub whereas William, did briefly look over their way.

        William’s issues are more related toward Harry but he doesn’t act out in public like Kate has done to Meghan multiple times.

        Even during the funeral seating William was the one who stopped kate from taking up the seats set aside for Harry and Meghan after Harry gave William a look.

        William knows Harry was not going to interact with kate at the funeral.

        I also want to bring back the events at the end of Philip’s funeral service. William and Harry were walking side by side after they had said their goodbyes to the officiant. Kate walked up to them quickly trying to barge in, and William snapped at her and she slowed down abruptly. It is more than likely that William knew then that Harry didn’t want to interact with Kate.

      • BlueNailsBetty says:

        “ Kates however; her BL screamed anger and aggression.”

        OMG THIS THIS THIS. Kate didn’t look sad or mournful or grief stricken over the death of her “beloved” grandmother-in-law/revered queen. She looked angry she was having to share the spotlight with the sister-in-law that she hates so much. She also looked angry that William was successfully being diplomatic with Harry and Meghan.

        Kate may have plastered a smile on her face for the masses but she was furious during the walkabout and her body language said exactly what she was really thinking.

      • The Old Chick says:

        For all of willy’s incandescence, though admittedly before the book was published, there was at least one shot of W, H, M walking quite close together and K off to the side. Willy often does that to her though. But it was interesting.. Her anger issues are almost as bad as Willy’s. I’d hate to see how she treats staff. For someone who supposedly ‘won’, she’s a mean, angry bully.

  33. Elle says:

    I also think “what changed” the situation is the death of the Queen. No more needing to play nice or put up with shenanigans to keep the Queen happy. I believe both families had different motives to keep the Queen happy, of course, but they were both motivated to at least attempt to placate her.

  34. Dee says:

    Geez, Kate. Joan Collins wants that Dynasty look back. She did it better in the 1980s.

    • MsIam says:

      No wonder Joan thinks Kate never puts a foot wrong, lol. Joan is probably flattered by the cosplay. They both have that “evil bitch” vibe right down to a “t”.

  35. VilleRose says:

    Kate is trapped and she has to use the dirty British tabloids to get her message out. She can’t sit down for a tell all interview, do a Netflix docuseries, host a podcast or write a memoir to get her side of the story out like the Sussexes did. She also knows the Sussexes are living a much happier and freer life than her in California than she is in the UK. She has a husband who can’t seem to stand her and she will probably never be Queen. I think she’s mostly enraged she has to stay silent and doesn’t have the ability to speak out. I mean, she could if she were braver like Diana but she’s not.

    • The Old Chick says:

      But Meghan’s pod had nothing to do with her side of the story? Kate is never ending getting ‘her side’ out. Kate briefing the press weekly for years now. Her mother and uncle openly laying into Meghan. Meghan has barely mentioned them outside of Oprah and the Netflix series (which was about far more). Kate talks non stop. She can walk away any time she likes if she’s trapped, no one’s stopping her.

      • Deering24 says:

        But Kate is trapped–by her awful mother’s conditioning and by her own snobby greed. Think Fall Of The House Of Usher (the Netflix series). Every one of its characters had a chance to walk away–but they were too greedy/hateful/weak-willed/power-hungry to do so. They brought about their own destruction by their hungers–and not seeing that what they valued was worthless. Kate–same thing…unless she grows up. Fast.

      • The Old Chick says:

        Deering, I haven’t seen it, I have to checked it out.

        I know women who are genuinely trapped in abusive marriages. Kate may feel trapped by greed, desire for power, narcissism but she’s definitely not trapped.

      • VilleRose says:

        Where would Kate go if she walked away from the BRF? She has her family sure, but she’ll never be able to get a real job. Unlike Meghan, she never had a real career. Unlike Meghan, she never really had any close friends apart from her sister and maybe the wives of William’s friends. If she did, we’d know about them. Unlike Meghan, she does not have connections in any industries, except maybe fashion because Kate has no idea how to network. She was at William’s beck and call for a decade and didn’t do much else.

        She barely lasted 6 months (?) at Jigsaw during a part time gig and she supposedly worked for the family business Party Pieces which as we all know is now no more. So she doesn’t even have that to fall back on. Her kids belong to the monarchy, especially George. She could walk away but… she’d be walking way to nothing. It’s not just about power and greed. She truly has nothing to fall back on.

      • Tessa says:

        Kate did not have to listen to her mother pursuing William was something Kate wanted and put all on hold until after years later he gave her the ring. She was a doormat and put up with William break up to achieve her goal. If it had been William Smith who broke up with Kate over the phone Kate would have walked away. With the future king she used the media to help win him back.

  36. kelleybelle says:

    She deserves it all. Totally self-inflicted. Shallow, stuck-up b*tch.

  37. Moondust says:

    We’ve all seen how Kate behaved at the Commonwealth service or at the walkabout after the queen ‘s death. It is laughable to ever consider her as a peacemaker. She’s a mean girl. Always has been. Way before Meghan entered the picture. She was even mean to the York princesses.
    As her supposedly closeness to Harry…after the announcement of W&K engagement Harry said during an interview something like I can’t wait to get to know her better. After 10 years of dating!?
    I think Kate and William are a very dysfunctional couple. She knows which button to push to get him enraged. I believe that’s partly why she was overtly flirting with Harry during engagements. That and to get attention.

  38. Cobra says:

    There is this one line in the memoir Harry talking about Kate ‘oh how I loved to make her laugh!’. Granted he was a young guy and probably excited to welcome the new addition to their circle etc.. but I was startled by the way he narrated it in the audio book.. like he sounded nostalgic.. I thought people will discuss about that more and how Harry really liked Kate etc.. but I don’t see this getting discussed anywhere..I am not saying Harry was close to Kate or anything like that, but was surprised this line is not discussed in detail when every minute details are discussed so much..

    • Nic919 says:

      Well it helps set up why her laughing at the Nazi uniform was not seen as something Harry needed to rethink.

    • equality says:

      He said something similar about one of his teachers. I think he just liked making people laugh in general, especially if he saw them as difficult to get a genuine laugh out of.

  39. Mads says:

    When the separation is announced (I’ve changed my mind from it not happening to it will because the press are being allowed to write negative articles on the Middletons plus her not being allowed to go to 🌍 💩), a huge portion of the blame will be put on Harry and Meghan for causing stress in the marriage because of the extra “workload” 🙄 WanK is encumbered with because H & M “abandoned” their duties.

    “we have seen that Catherine is more than ready to give people a hug …” except when someone is Black — then “Catherine” recoils like she’s being forced to immerse herself in boiling water. (See the incident with the Jamaican minister of culture.)

    Peacemaker, my derriere. She’s a racist mean girl.

    • First comment says:

      She started hugging people after the release of Harry’s memoir to show that Harry lied…remember the staged photo with her old teacher after Harry’s book? she was never a hugger ..

  42. Jen says:

    It’s hard to be a peacemaker when neither side are willing to speak to you.

  43. Kelsey says:

    No way of knowing, and I’m sorry because this is probably going to sound potentially misogynist and I don’t mean it that way, it’s just how I feel about this particular circumstance. BUT, I really think Kate (and Camilla) had the biggest issues with Meghan when she came along, and when the press started getting spicy with their Sussex reporting (since William and Charles take tabloid fonder as bible) she started whispering her own talking points in Williams’ ear.

    I think William and Kate bonded over their growing disdain for their new sister in law, but when Harry and Meghan started speaking their truths, I don’t think everything Kate was telling William lined up with what they said. I think there was quite a bit embellishing on how awful Meghan was on her part to William that fueled the fire, and when it came out that those embellishments were just that it made him even madder at Kate. Instead of looking stupid on his own time he sees it as his wife setting them up to look like idiots in the press, and the short lived bonding blew to the wind.

    It could be fanfiction of course, but witnessing how William seemed to be able to be closer to the two people he’s “incandescent with rage” at than his own wife on a walkabout (and in church) speaks volumes to me. William and Kate are mad, tired, bitter, and done. And worst of all, the couple that WASN’T “supposed” to make it are the very ones being presented in the press the way they wish they could be.

    Hang it up, flat screen, and go on ‘head and get that divorce.

    • windyriver says:

      I no longer remember details of so many of the things Kate’s done over the years! But for anyone who recalls that short video when the Cambridges were out on a family bike ride near Amner, and saw a photographer walking on the same path as them (believe he was headed to or returning from a shoot somewhere) – didn’t Kate flat out lie to William while he was on the phone talking to security that she’d seen the guy near Amner earlier?

      So yeah, I totally believe it would be her style to embellish things she told Will about Meghan. I’ve seen other examples, especially in work situations, where people not otherwise friendly bond over a common issue of concern or against a problematic person, only for that bond to fall apart after the situation changes or resolves. When Harry and Meghan walked away, any bond between Will and Kate began to unravel, and once he started hearing different versions of stories Kate had previously told him – yes, I could definitely see what you describe.

      I think what was said in The Oprah interview pushed William further away and that’s when he decided to separate from kate. Meghan revealing that kate lied about the crying story and exposing that lie to the entire world was likely a step too far for him. It is after that interview that we start to see William publicly show disdain for Kate.

  44. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    Kate has been a failure/quitter at every “job” she’s ever attempted (with the exception of stalking William), so I’m not surprised that she failed at — and is now giving up — being a peace-maker.

    I’m sure others have pointed this out ad nauseum, but it’s very telling that the tabloids report on how it is worse to call out someone else’s bad behavior, than to behave badly in the first place. I suppose Andrew’s victim reporting his conduct is also worse than Andrew raping girls in the first place? The royal supporters continue to live in opposite world.

    Another non story from the British press! Nobody cares….

    “I think Catherine has been badly hurt by Harry’s brutal attacks on William, like his decision to reveal so much of what went on during their disagreements”

    The only brutal attack I’ve read about, heard about or seen, is William’s physical attack on Harry over that argument about Meghan. He laid hands on Harry, shoved him into a dog’s water bowl, and broke his necklace.

    The Salt Island Windsors are not a serious family. But I repeat myself.

  47. J.Ferber says:

    Corvus Corax, And when the dog bowl broke, it cut and bloodied Harry’s back. Later, when she saw Harry’s back, Meghan asked him what had happened. Poor Harry then told her. I think this comes from long history of Harry having to submit to and stay quiet about William’s deviant behavior.

    She’s Katherine, The Princess of Wales. If yer gonna slag off the Royals at least get their titles right. And pull your drooly bits out of the mattress’s bottom, wouldya? It’s getting old and it’s not even eleven in the morning! lol
