Why is the Mail suddenly talking about all of Prince William’s exes & side chicks?

Here are some photos of Prince William on Day 2 of his solo Singapore trip. I realize that the Sussex Squad is doing another “mute challenge” on this trip, which is funny. In case you weren’t aware, whenever Prince William and/or Kate try to do some solo project, the squad has started going radio silent on social media. Like, they don’t even drag Will and Kate or give them negative attention. It’s funny because it actually works in a weird way – William’s Singapore trip is receiving very little attention, and the British papers were full of all kinds of exclusive reports from Buckingham Palace briefings on… Prince Harry. It feels like BP is actively attempting to distract from William’s trip too. Hilarious.

Anyway, William was “busy” on his second day in Singapore. He did some dragon boat racing, he did a photocall in front of a giant globe (because “Earthshot,” get it?) and he met the Prime Minister of Singapore, Lee Hsien Loong (in front of the globe). He also wore a baseball cap, because he’s seen Harry wear a baseball cap a lot and so now William can wear one too!

Meanwhile, one of the biggest stories in the Mail in recent days was “She turned down the Prince! So who WAS the woman William tried to date when he and Kate were on a ‘break’? A look back at the royal romances before Wills married Kate – and there are more than you might think!” That’s truly the headline!! The Mail did a deep dive into all of the women Peg allegedly dated or fooled around with before and during his relationship with Kate. What a very strange article to come out while William is doing his second solo international trip after having his staff brief reporters that he wants to be seen as a hot single guy. It’s been clear this whole time that William ordered Kate to stay home during his New York trip and the Singapore trip. It’s been clear that he’s shopping for a new girlfriend/mistress/wife too. Wonder when his hunt will be reported openly.

  1. They are trying to keep the sexy hunk global statesman fantasy going. He had so many exes and side pieces just like Pa. So I have money on he is out looking for a side piece and Can’t will be divorced/removed from his life. She served her purpose by giving him children. He is going to move on after all look how well that worked for Chuckles.

    • ML says:

      Sexy is not happening. The side piece might already be there though.

      • Jais says:

        Yeah, I’m confused. Does he have a side-piece or is he advertising for one?

      • Lulu says:

        Agree, he brought someone to NY and on this trip. He knows the rr are afraid of his lawyers so won’t tell.

      • Grace Yancy says:


      • Eggplantpeggie says:

        Totally agree that they’re trying to make him sexy (as Harry) but it’s not really working. The cap to hide the humpty dumpty egg head is not working and they’re paying always these same ladies/people person to shout how great they are or “I love you” and “so handsome” LOL so obvious. The list is missing a branch to Rose Hanbury: Willie can be happy that he had numerous girlfriends before Kate becuase he’s so handsome, but deep down, he’s nervous about what they could report next about who’s missing on the list.

      • Cairidh says:

        He’s alleged to be dating Svetlana Ignatiev, coo of flora and fauna international. And he’s in Singapore doing stuff for the environment and wildlife…..

      • Nic919 says:

        Is that the “Russian lawyer / banker” we have heard referenced for a while now?

      • Gabby says:

        I think there is no current sidepiece, otherwise, why all the advertising? The job is open but there is a shortage of applicants.

      • Kathleen Williams says:

        I have a different take on this. All this “sexy beast” posturing by Sir Pegs-a-lot is cover for the fact that he may swing both ways and something big is about to come out. They are setting up reasonable doubt.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I said this a few weeks ago – they are setting him up for as a ‘hot single dad’ post divorce announcement. My money is on him finding himself an American wife so he can compete with Harry in a ‘see I have an American wife too and she’s the best’. He is beyond desperate to compete and be better than Harry to the extend he will look for someone who he thinks can compete with Meghan. He knows Mumbles can’t no matter how hard she tries.

    • Elon's Sink says:

      She has to be white, an actress and pretty. I can only think of Lilly James. I mean she’s an English rose. The mother of dragons wouldn’t give him the time of day. Emily Watson is too intelligent for him.

      • AnneL says:

        I think she is with someone else. I honestly don’t see her being willing to take on William. She’s been quite successful on her own, even if things seem to have slowed down a bit since she aged out of ingenue roles. Or maybe she’s just focusing on her personal life, idk. I’m not a big fan but she’s too good for William.

    • Acha says:

      Shopping for a new lady: Didn’t we just see a Celebitchy article from this past summer about Rose Hanbury taking our friendless Duchess out for dinner and music? I wonder if that’s when Rose and Kate came to an understanding, and William realized he’d need to rebrand as a hot young single man to get his … let’s call it kicks.

      • Jais says:

        Technically, if something ended, Kate could be trying to wait him out until he realizes that she is the only one who has stuck by him. It’s more the fact that they don’t seem to get on at all. Even if there’s not someone waiting in the wings.

      • Evan says:

        Rose has kids she loves and a rich older husband who lets her do whatever she wants. She’s also too wild for Wills. No way she’s giving up her easy party life to work for the Firm

    • ales says:

      It could be they are trying to focus on the fact that he dated very good looking, very feminine women. He ended up with K instead, an autocratic, masculine type, ice queen. It is interesting how K is never criticised nor is there any explanation as to why her history keeps getting rewritten. Perhaps he is shopping for a beatiful woman with personality who has the ability to be similar to Diana.

    • nona93 says:

      Any thoughts out there that Kate isn’t coping and longing to lead the life that Harry and M do or even her sister Pippa? She will have all the money she wants to do what she does best – NOTHING – in complete luxury for the rest of her life and not have to be groomed and lectured about how she dresses,, walks, waves, curtsys etc every day for the rest of her life.
      Oh! and she won’t have to rush home to rustle up a curry – she can find a real hunk and go to her favourite restaurant without a bodyguard.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      I’m going to say that speculation on Will’s secret being greater than an affair with a woman might be BEHIND the story. Or, speculation around the unsolved mysteries of women on royal propeties grounds. just saying.

  2. Indica says:

    I’ve been wondering… it seemed like not a single aristo wanted anything to do with Willy when he was in the ‘finding a first wife’ stage of life. Which is why I believe he settled for Kate, no one else would have anything to do with him or the firm.
    Can you imagine how bad his reputation (and the firm’s, for that matter) was among aristos of England if all of them said ‘nope, not a chance’?

    • Lulu says:

      He might be looking at younger women who didn’t witness what Waity went through. He also has a lot of money now, which is a factor for the social climbers

      • Cairidh says:

        He didn’t want the social climbers last time because he’s a snob, he only considered aristocrats and foreign royals as wives.
        He could have found a lower class girl who was willing to take on the hassles of royal life. I mean he did, but he could have found another one, other than Kate.

      • Cate says:

        Maybe he’s going to try replicating the Leo DiCaprio Girlfriend experience? If he’s looking at younger women and no longer needs someone who will have his kids or stick out the massive scrutiny long-term….I bet there are plenty of younger women who would do this for the boost to their profile/notoriety. If he does go that route though, I’m going to feel genuinely sorry for Kate. She’s probably not a very pleasant person to be married to right now BUT arguably it’s being in the royal family that has contributed to her unpleasantness.

      • Dollycoa says:

        As the saying goes if you marry fir money, you never stop working. She didn’t think further than ‘ marry William in her plans, and has ended up with no life experience and no personality outside ‘wife’. She has to work hard now to keep her position. The easy bit was being a doormat in the first place to get Wills to marry her.

    • Nic919 says:

      The aristos also saw how Diana, another aristo, was treated and so it’s likely their families didn’t think it was worth it.

      Only someone outside of the circle looking for more social power would even want to be a part of that circus.

      • Dot Gingell says:

        💯 agree. The aristos don’t want their daughters to be treated the same way Diana was.

  3. ML says:

    William is wearing black and white during his Earthsh!t break. Did his dresser fly over with him?

  4. Amy Bee says:

    Is this the press’ revenge for Kate not going to Singapore?

    • Mindy_DeLaCalle says:

      That’s a great theory! They are annoyed he didn’t do as he was told and now they’re going to print all kinds of things BESIDES his trip in Singapore.

  5. Becks1 says:

    Huh. What a weird article. Like….its just so random to have this article with pictures of anyone he might have dated – like its reminding people that William DID have options besides Kate and look at these beautiful and well connected girls who he dated.

    Is this part of the divorce rollout?

    • Nic919 says:

      The press knows something and this article of the past girlfriends is hinting at what they know. Meanwhile Chris Jackson has been posting all his photos from past Singapore trips, including when kate was there in 2012.

  6. Monica says:

    This is the first time he has worn that baseball cap (so stiff & new) & it is just perched on his head making his head look even more like a giant egg. Not hot.

    • Lulu says:

      Hate to say it but I think the hat takes 10 years off of him.

      • Lucy says:

        The hat is a vast improvement. I don’t think he’s allowed to wear it in England

      • booboocuta says:

        The hat is SORT OF an improvement. It’s better that he cover his giant melon, of course, and it does make him look a bit younger. But if he really wants to look younger, he needs a distressed cloth cap like the ones Harry wears, not something so stiff. Color would be nice, too.

      • Allyn says:

        I’ve had the hairline of a man thrice my age since my early twenties, and, yeah, when I wear a baseball cap I still get carded. Yeah, a baseball cap can take years off. 🙂

      • BQM says:

        He’s still awful but whenever he wears a hat he looks so much better. His bald head really ruins any shot at looking good. Some guys rock it. He is not one.

      • Inge says:

        nah he’s still got the teeth

    • KeKe Swan says:

      His expressions are so unnatural. The smiles never turn all the way up at the corners of his mouth and never, ever warm his eyes.

  7. QuiteContrary says:

    He is really unattractive.

    • Jan90067 says:

      He needs a caseload of Marvis Whitening Toothpaste. That might help that massive tooth barring, snarly “smile”. CB turned me onto it in one of her posts and it DOES work!

    • anotherlily says:

      I agree. He slways looks as if he’s sneering or snarling.

  8. Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

    I read this article for what it is, shade on Kate while her husband is on the other side of the world 🤣

  9. Beverley says:

    Peg keeps thinking that if he wears a casual shirt and dons a baseball cap just like Harry, folks will adore him, just like Harry. If he poses with diplomats and state officials, some of their gravitas will reflect on him. He is so stilted and uncomfortable in his own skin and you can smell the desperation to “be somebody”. Being heir isn’t enough, he wants to be loved. Harry’s effortless charm and swagger don’t come easily to Peg, no matter how he copykeens.

    Poor deluded man-child. The Windsors did wrong by telling him how perfect and wonderful he is. His arrested development screams volumes whenever he’s around normally adjusted adults.

  10. CatMum says:

    there is nothing at all hot about that man. not even his money, because he seems like a selfish tightwad. I don’t understand how he finds affair partners, much less anyone who would be willing to become official. I think Kate’s position is actually pretty secure, as I can’t imagine William going through all the hassle of a divorce without someone else lined up.

    • Cairidh says:

      He’s got status. Even Prince Andrew had hot women lining up to have flings with him because he was a Prince. And he had much less money than William.

      The deputy at my school looked like mr bean with glasses, except much less attractive. He was a nasty unpleasant person. But he had an affair with the French teacher who was a classically beautiful blonde who could have been a model, and seemed a sweet person. He was the Deputy head which gave him status.

      • Concern Fae says:

        Sure he has money, but is he willing to spend it? Lainey has been running updates on how busted Kate’s hair and makeup is. Is William refusing to pay for a glam squad for her? She may have been able to get away with doing her own hair and makeup in their younger years, but at 40 you need a pro to be camera ready.

        Someone looking to up her profile is going to be seeing what the job is. Letting the current wife look haggard may boost his ego, but it serves as a warning for anyone wanting to step in.

  11. Cathy says:

    A sign William is looking for a new partner?
    Kate: I’m married to William

  12. anotherlily says:

    He is a deeply unattractive man.

  13. Gem says:

    Word in the streets is, the separation between the Wales couple is inching towards becoming legal on pen and paper and it is only a matter of time. There’s a tiny story of divorce being filed in secret on the magazine private eye. There’s enough hints there that points towards Kate and William. Now, I don’t know but William trying to detach Kate from his legacy project seems to indicate that he doesn’t want her shadow hovering over it when their marriage collapses publicly. Mail’s been hinting at it too. They had another story about how Queen’s named Catherine historically had a bad run. Everyone in media knows Kate doesn’t have to do jack shit for George, he has private tutors and a nanny. They tried to harass Harry into benching Meghan for Invictus so they could spin divorce tales from it. But are quiet on the actual divorce that might happen. Isn’t that funny!

    • Persephone says:

      I think is exactly what is happening.

    • Jeanne says:

      Where r u getting your info from? I don’t understand divorce rumors? Why would they continue doing events together if they’re getting divorced?

      • Gem says:

        I pretty much wrote where….in private eye….people in media break stories there that have embargo on them in there but give heavy hints.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I can absolutely see a divorce being done and dusted before any announcement is made – Chuck is not going to want a repeat of his own very public divorce. She will be silenced just as her family has been – she will get to stay in AC with a nice pay off and pension, living as a kept woman who is the mother of the future King. A nice life that if she wants to continue to live in, keeps her gob shut esp if William gets married again. I wonder if she will get to keep a title i.e. Dowager Duchess of Cambridge or something – given that status is important to her she will def want a title that is hers.

      • Jeanne says:

        Why would they get divorced? Kate ia discrete and let’s him do whatever he wants. She’s perfect for him. He won’t find another women willing to be such a doormat. He groomed her to be this way since she was 18. From his point of view, a divorce would be stupid.

      • Harper says:

        @Jeanne they will get divorced because Willy’s disdain for her is so apparent that it seems he is no longer able or willing to fake being happily married much longer. I can’t stand the guy because of what he did to Meghan, but it’s better to live an honest life than trying to fake a relationship, a very public relationship, for the rest of his life. Plus, he promised the Queen he’d never get divorced. She’s dead; I imagine that behind the scenes he is insisting that he deserves his freedom. The media will cover for him; the only question is who or what will be scapegoated to distract the public from the bad news.

      • Cairidh says:

        Shed only be dowager if her husband was dead.
        The title for divorced women is Catherine, Princess of Wales. Instead of HRH THE Princess of Wales.
        She’d never agree to be downgraded to duchess. The princess title, Diana’s title, was the one she wanted.

        However diana was offered the title Princess Diana instead, so possibly Kate would be offered Princess Catherine.

        But I don’t think they’ll ever divorce. I think they already agreed to pretend to be together for their rest of their lives. Otherwise William would have divorced her before she got the pow title.

      • Jais says:

        Agree @harper about everything except for the public needing a distraction. A public used to a tabloid press will likely eat up details of a divorce. Maybe I’m wrong, but once the shock for those that bought into the fake fantasy wears off, people will read all about the details, likely ones that make Kate look bad considering William’s press protection.

      • Smart&Messy says:

        Jeanne, he realized he wants the power couple thing that H&M have going. He knows Kate will never ever measure up. She is exactly what he wanted a decade ago, but he wants something else now. Whatever Peg wants Peg gets. He also realized that it might be nice to be with someone he actually cares about. The last one is tricky with a narc like him, but I get the impression that these are the conclusions he drew from Harry’s life.

      • Magdalena says:

        Funny thing is a few newspapers have used “The Duchess of Cambridge” when mentioning her in articles written THIS YEAR, including one (The Express?) on the front page… perhaps the decision has already been made that she would be known as Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge as a divorced woman. You know, the way they attempted to and still do style M, always forgetting the important “THE” in front of Duchess for a married woman.

    • Milady Digby says:

      Will can’t tolerate her anymore and quietly separated in August 2022. In UK a couple has to be separate for 2 years prior to filing for a divorce so I suspect official announcement prior to next Summer holidays. He thinks he deserves someone like Jacqueline Bouvier so he conquer US!

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Milady Digby, we know that Cant moved into AC in August 2022, but we’ve suspected that they’ve been separated longer than that. Perhaps they’ve already been separated for two years.

      • AC says:

        Yes agree, for sure he wants the “power couple” status that HM has. His jealousy escalated when he saw H’s intention to marry M. As someone mentioned a week or so ago, M is pretty much both their dream girl – beautiful, Smart, intelligent, articulate, kind. And he wants someone like M. My bet as others have said it before,
        I think would be someone from
        the US. As he sees Harry’s popularity climbing here in the US, I think he wants to compete with him.

      • Nic919 says:

        I agree with this timeline. They will wait until they have the cover of summer holidays next year. And Adelaide cottage was the official start of the separation which was august 2022. The queens death provided a distraction from focusing on their cover but now that Charles has had his coronation, the media is focusing back on them.

    • Jeanne says:

      Sorry, I didn’t know what private eye was.

    • NeedCoffew says:

      Do you know where I can find the clip from Private Eye?

  14. MY3CENTS says:

    Oh look I’m wearing a baseball cap, now that I’m not bald I don’t look 57 right?

  15. Murphy says:

    Yeah the only stuff I’ve seen about this Singapore trip was a blurb about the Changi airport and why its better than Heathrow >shrug<

  16. Cel2495 says:

    Gosh he is so unattractive! That cap is not it for sure! He is not Harry.. eww.

  17. Cessily says:

    “He also wore a baseball cap, because he’s seen Harry wear a baseball cap a lot and so now William can wear one too!”
    And even with something as simple as this he ends up looking like the creepy dad every one knows to avoid 🤷🏻‍♀️

  18. s808 says:

    Although that hat looks brand new and seems to be sitting awkwardly on his head, he does look younger with it on. It’s weird to wear it to an official engagement though. Was the engagement outdoors or about sports?

    I agree with a commenter further up that the article is shady because he didn’t listen about bringing katie and everyone knows he’s shopping for a new side-piece/wife.

  19. Em says:

    Never seen someone look so unattractive even in a basic polo and face cap.

  20. Bingo says:

    My favorite quote from the DM article: “Too serious and clever to have been a princess, the Bristol University graduate has worked as a security consultant in Iraq for a London-based company.” (re Natalie Hicks-Lobbecke; so very shady)

  21. Avonan says:

    Will’s grimming photos: his smile doesn’t reach his eyes.

  22. MsIam says:

    I’m saying it now, William is going to grow a beard and dye it red any day now. Hell probably claim that its red due to “latent Spencer genes” or something. He’s truly a weirdo, just like Charles and he’s equally abusive.

  23. Digital Unicorn says:

    Looking at these photos he has a type – a type that you can see Mumbles has spent years trying to be. Also interesting that this article pretty much (in a passive aggressive way) confirms the rumour that William and Kate were, allegedly, hooking up when he was already seeing someone (Carley).

    Kate was always the ‘go to’ girl who clung on long enough to get the ring. There has long been stories that he was pressured by his family to get married and Kate was the only one who wanted him.

    • Tessa says:

      I think Carole was the one who pressured William. I don’t think the queen was all that enthusiastic about Kate

  24. Ameerah M says:

    It’s crazy to look at him now and see how utterly unattractive he has become. Diana snatched those Spencer genes back and the Windsor genes are dancing all over his face.

  25. Maxine Branch says:

    That hat on that man just adds to the height of his head to me.

  26. jules says:

    Did not even know it was going on. little media attention

  27. s808 says:

    Okay, I viewed the article and 2 things:

    1. Carely (?) is beautiful, WOW!
    2. The photo is Jecca with the hat….Kate was cosplaying HARD with that one shoot (you all know which one)

    • Mary Pester says:

      Oooo look, burger King has a new assistant 😂😂😂the way that hat is plonked on that massive dome is really something (grotesque).
      Billy your not Harry, you never will be Harry, your fugly and your mum took her looks back when she realised what a complete and utter sht you are. Now, earthsht WOULD have been a good cause in someone else’s hands, but In yours, it just looks like another vanity project

    • Nic919 says:

      The Jecca cosplay was weird and also shows she has been doing this for a long time.

  28. ClaireB says:

    I think William looks as good as I’ve seen him in years in the polo/baseball cap photos. Mostly because he looks moderately friendly instead of his usual sneering and grimacing. I think if he weren’t such a miserable, spoiled tyrant, we might still think he was handsome (enough). My grandma used to say, “Handsome is as handsome does,” and that’s sure right about William!

  29. J.Ferber says:

    I disagree that Will doesn’t look better with the baseball cap over his head– he definitely does IMO. You can imagine that he might have hair under the cap, even though he doesn’t. I’d suggest blond wisps sticking out of the cap (glued onto the cap, of course) to get the olds to remember that he was once hot about twenty-odd years ago. Desperate, yes, but that’s where we are now (or HE is, anyway).

    • Chrissy says:

      I wonder if hair transplant was ever considered early on when he started losing his hair. Or, more probably, his laziness and own vanity didn’t allow him to see himself as a bald, old-looking 40 year old.

  30. Mslove says:

    All I see is an insecure nepo baby using the press to soothe his vanity. What is the point? If by some miracle Peg morphs into a handsome global statesman, he’ll still be the same boring & lazy rager. This handsome statesman shtick is unnecessary and over the top.

  31. Amee says:

    And Daily Beast is also saying Wills is busy meeting heads of state while Haz is hanging with Katy Perry. Oy!

    • Jais says:

      That’s funny. I mean Harry was meeting heads of state during the IG. He literally just met with the us surgeon general in nyc. But yeah, okay. People are just not serious. Esp, the DB who regularly get updates on William’s feelings from someone who is definitely not William.

  32. sparrow says:

    They’re trying to make him uber sexy, Mr Global Stud. The thing is, some of those women were and are strikingly beautiful. And apparently nice and intelligent, as well. But it’s a catch 22: you had to be intelligent (and not needy of money nor limelight) to have turned him down, and dumb and needy to have chased him around…enter Miss Middleton. And mother.

  33. tamsin says:

    I think that hat does make William less unattractive. It is a weird shape though. It is so round and stiff that it almost looks like a jockey’s cap. Anyway, polo shirt and baseball cap is the go to of many guys, particularly Harry.

  34. JP says:

    I’ve never seen a guy and thought- he shouldn’t wear baseball caps….until the last two times PW had worn them. Yikes.

  35. Saucy&Sassy says:

    About the hat … you know what I just wondered? What if he wore a fedora out and about. Even for his engagements, he could take it off inside. I know that my mind is a weird and wonderous place, but that’s where it went.

  36. Kittenmom says:

    He is gross no matter what he wears – can’t hide that face and those teeth 🥴. I hate that my eyes were exposed to his chest hair. This man is deeply unsexy.

  37. Tessa says:

    that first photo looks airbrushed

  38. SueBarbri33 says:

    He’s just so….stiff. I don’t know what else to say. I wonder what’s really going on with him. I hope I’m still around whenever his secrets are revealed, because I think they’re going to be just absolutely insane.

  39. Cali says:

    The fur on his forearm!! Just yucky

  40. AC says:

    I was curious so I clicked on the DM link which I haven’t done in a while. Agree as this is a strange article.
    Takes me back to reading an article years ago, there was one girl he was interested in, one of his class mates at St Andrew’s. Turned him down on first try. Her name happened to be also Meghan and from the US as well, with a double major in International relations. Shes also an entrepreneur and does Philanthropic work. Seems like deja vu. Esp knowing H married M who is similar.

  41. L4Frimaire says:

    That mute challenge must be working because I have seen nothing on my timeline about this trip at all. He’s smiling a lot more solo anyway but he still looks 57. Side note Singapore is an amazing city and well worth visiting. The food is absolutely incredible and so much to see and do. Would go back again if the timing was right.

  42. Anonymous says:

    Wonder if he ever ask Alexandra Knatchbull out? He should have pursued her.
