There came back a belated baked excuse of not wanting to upstage KC's first trip to Australia as well as the carbon footprint as an explanation for not doing the same for a woman's sport team as for any other event that puts the UK on the map. I think it shows the lack of agility of the monarchy, and I'm not sure if the irony of cashing in on fossil fuels production while playing the eco-card is lost on anyone. Why don't you just fly Emirates, William? 🙄 That IS where your wealth under your kids' names comes from...
Catherine's hat from church deserves an honourable albeit unseasonable nod. I do hope they're not flying today, as UK airports seem to have hit a bit of a snag, but rest assured there seems to be room for Andrew with them...
Also, I can understand getting down in the trenches to beat Meghan Markle at her own PR game but it's a tad unbecoming. The result will be a Markle makeover of the BRF, papped and jumbotroned. Do we really want that? 😵💫
Well no one could blame her for not wanting to go there anymore:
“While Kate and Harry used to be very, very close, there’s been a complete breakdown of that relationship,” Nicholl explained.
“I don’t think Kate does angry. I think it is more a case of feeling very disappointed, very let down and feeling hurt knowing that she had no right of reply — and Harry knew full well she had no right of reply.”
The journalist alleged that William, 41, was “very angry” with his younger brother, 39, for speaking about his wife in his book since the Princess of Wales, also 41, had “acted very much as the peacekeeper.”
It has a whiff of "Single White Female" where MM did the stalking, invading but fortunately sidelined herself, though for someone like they say who comes from a loving family, it's as psychologically violent and hard to wrap one's head around estrangement.
