Why do people find the monarchy so fascinating? What do these people actually do? Bring attention to charities for other people to donate money? The royal family is loaded in their own right. Do they ever give any money to charity?
Yeah they do have charity subscriptions and give certain amount a month.
The reason I find them so interesting is that they are something very unique in this day and age. They are totally non-political representation in a world where politicians and public figures have an agenda to push. Apart from promoting the Monarchy most of what they do is non political and is solely done for the promotion of the UK.
It’s also fascinating to follow the lives of those who have had their lives planned out for them since the day they are born. To have such wealth but with such limitation is fascinating to me. Also the UK is a social class obsessed nation, my own mother refers to people as “common” and describes her self as a “working class and proud” the Royals represent this class system more than anything else.
I am sad to hear this news. I hope the royal trio can find someone to fill his shoes.
i’m so happy! Jamie is bad for harry!
I don’t think he was good for any of them! I have never liked Jamie at all.

“With respect, I am really glad that William married Kate. If William didn’t, I can’t imagine what would Kate’s life be like. She would probably still maintain her party-girl lifestyle with her parents’ money because she didn’t have a very serious job and no one would hire a nearly 30 woman without serious work experience. (Don’t hate me or be rude to me for saying this, guys!)” - Submitted by Anonymous
That’s actually a good point, I have often wondered what would have become of Kate if the 2007 break up had been the end of the relationship. I don’t see her becoming like Pippa and actually making some sort of career out for her self. I think she would have just kept on working for her parents and hoped that some other titled guy came along to marry her.
Mothers can or rather should be loving and supportive but some times they can be so consumed with what they want their children to be that they will put what is best for their children to one side.
You are right however in that regardless of the relationship between Kate and Carol Kate is still an adult and could have walked away at any point. However when you put yourself in Kate’s shoes is walking away or disagreeing with your mother really the better option.
After all Kate relied on her parents for money as she had no job and probably didn’t have the social skills to get one. Also her parents seemed perfectly happily letting their adult daughter stay at home year after year shopping partying and basically not growing in any way shape or form. When Kate ended her relationship with William in 2007 due to his cheating and general mistreatment it was Carol who pressured her to get back with him and even organized a bonfire night and invited William too it.
What kind of mother encourages their daughter to get back with a man who cheated on her and was generally distance both emotionally and physically.
Mothers can emotionally black mail their children to no end in order to get the outcome that they want. Especially if that mother is paying for the lifestyle that their daughter is enjoying.
Of course this could be all in my imagination and I could be talking out my a** (I probably am!) But what can I say… It’s just a gut feeling I have.
nice vid on thor,i’m more of a hiddleston fan suddenly heres one love the music in this one :D it sorta shows loki more ….
btw your reply to some anon on the fact that you find katie interesting so sorry but she is just boring i know you see a complex reltionship but i see someone who is naiive and married becuase thats all that she was left to do after 10 years of waiting ,her clothes are dull not being a hater but my sentiments now diana was a bit more complex ahead of my time and i’m still interested in her and people still talk about her 20 years later i doubt kate will be that famous less than a year after her marriage her fame faded lmao shes not that interesting unless ofcourse your a royal watcher,neither the queen nor camilla or sophie are interesting diana was one of those rare ladies :D
I understand what your saying.. But if studying history has taught me one thing is that situations/people that appear simple in public are far more complex in private.
I think the whole Kate situation and her family is probably are more complicated than we think especially in terms of their money. I have serious doubts that they have ever been as rich as the press made them out to be. William is physiologically very interesting more so than Kate.
They do look happier today, but I still don’t buy it. I hate to say it, but chuck/di looked lovely too, way after their marriage started going bad. A part of me wants to be wrong and proven so in 20 or so years, but for now i don’t buy the whole package of happy couple yet.
I must say though, Kate’s people should take note: I and other skeptics liked her today. Reason? She looked decent, was relaxed. How? She was in her comfort zone: low cost outfit in terms of price and maintenance outfit, light atmosphere, and yes even sport to a degree, which i think is one of her strong points.
This is her forte; I think her people should accept it and work with it. People like me appreciate someone good at what they do and passionate about it; while I wish she were better for more challenging options and events, I would take these outings more since she’s genuine at these times.
I agree with pretty much everything you said.
I think the reason Kate seems better at the scouting and the art stuff than at her other charities is because she feels uncomfortable when confronted with really harsh realities. She was raised in a good family meaning her parents were able to provide her and her siblings with everything they needed especially after their business really got going. Perhaps in their minds, her parents thought “I don’t want them to go through hardships” so they spoiled them and didn’t really foster in them a sense of generosity. Most people who are grateful for their success often give back through charities and some such but you don’t see that in the Middleton family. I mean, does Party Pieces donate to charities? I don’t mean to say they aren’t grateful but rather maybe they thought “if you don’t work hard for it then why should I give you anything?”
However, I don’t think this is how Kate’s mind works. She is just not charitable because she can’t relate to those people who’ve had very hard lives because her parents provided her with everything. She doesn’t know the real meaning of working hard or having a hard life. That’s why I think she devotes her time to the scouting because it’s safe, it’s about adventure and meeting people and just having fun and learning new things. Her art is another safe zone. Aside from studying that in college, in art you don’t get confronted with really bad thing unless its an intellectual debate about the merits for this and that art work. So at least for me the Art Room is a positive patronage though I wish she did less of just painting stuff with kids or visiting galas but more on knowing how art therapy works and such. I hope that after the baby comes (and the next one because I feel like she’s gonna have like another two years of “grace period” to get to know the baby by which time she’ll be pregnant again so that will be at least four years of part time royal work unless William quits the RAF and become full time) and she’s ready to get back to work that she’ll be more prepared to do more hands on work with her more sensitive charities. I look to forward to seeing her grow better. I have yet to lose faith in her.
Party pieces does have a charity that they promote on their website called starlight. But I’m not sure the level of their involvement. Very interesting post by the way!
Thanks very much :) I do try to keep my head above water but not too long ago I was a bit of a crazy Kate hater myself, although I haven’t converted to a Kate fan, I just try to be fair.
What do I think of Kate as a person? Well it’s difficult to say given that I don’t know her but I get the impression that she is a real people pleaser to the point she will put her own needs to one side for another person. William and Her mother Carol are the two main people that she puts her own needs to one side for in order to make them happy.
I think she is intelligent in the sense that she can learn new things fairly quickly but she doesn’t seek out new experiences to improve her mind. She always goes the same places to shop, holiday and famously didn’t peruse a career or any other hobbies. I think a big part of that is laziness or a lack of motivation/encouragement from the people around her.
If I were Carol I would advise Kate that William is known for his sexual and emotional cheating and that she shouldn’t give him a free pass on that type of behaviour just because he is royal. I would tell William that if he hurt my daughter in any way I would give him a kick in the teeth and I wouldn’t care if I got sent to the tower for it.
Is it all right to call your friends bitches? If it is good humoured then yeah! In fact my friends have this thing were if one person enters a room they say “Al’right slags!!” and every one laughs.
Who the heck told HELLO that William is leaving the RAF!?
If this is true and an official announcement is made shortly then it might prove that some one close to William is leaking information to the press.
This has been the case in HELLO magazine for many years now….It’s always a nameless friend who tells HELLO. Personally I think it’s some one in the Middleton circle or a Middleton. Perhaps Carol…
OK, just to be clear I do read Royal Dish from time to time for entertainment as I find some of their posts so ridiculous that I just have to laugh.
But this exchange on a thread about the history of William and Kate really p*ssed. A user called “SElizabeth” makes the point that it’s very difficult to know what a person’s feelings/motivations are when you don’t know that person in real life.
Another user makes the point if people can gush over William and Kate but not know them personally then why can’t people do opposite. Fair point and “SElizabeth” acknowledges that point and gives a thoughtful reply.
Some users agree with this statement but others continue to talk about the likelihood of divorce. To Which “SElizabeth” responds too.
Again I think this is a perfectly thoughtful a reasonable response. But of course on the Royal Dish thoughtfulness and reasonable thinking is not welcome (unless it benefits their way of thinking.)
But this high and mighty post is what really pissed me off.
“Now that you have started let me inform you of how things work here….You are more than welcome to share your point of view but don’t ask or tell others what to talk about or what a kill joy they are”
Oh… My… GOD! I hate to tell you this but a large part of what makes a forum a forum is users responding to each other thoughts and posts. Also at the end of this comment the user basically said that the Middletons are gold diggers etc and that is how it works. No other opinion is welcomed here is the under lined point in this post.
It’s my own fault really. I should have known better than to read anything on royal dish.
