Wills and Harry rift blown out of proportion

I've thought all along that the so-called "feud" between the brothers has been exaggerated by the media. Brothers fall out as anyone with sons will tell you. Usually they make it up and everything is forgotten, but with Harry leaving the country and the press delighting in nasty gossip, a small disagreement has grown into all out war.
At least one reporter thinks as I do.

Alegrias1 William's children being chased by the media... yes six years ago ..

They are not. That headline was when george was two.

Kate releases her own photos of her three children because it stops the paparzzi being able to make money from photos they snatch because we know what they look like

Alegrias1 From the article you referenced The palace said a small number of media organisations, mostly in Germany, France, Australia, New Zealand and the US, had published photos of Prince George in "unacceptable circumstances".
However it said the "vast majority", and all UK publications, had refused. So it seems all the UK publications were more principled than may have been thought.

One of the countries named for publishing photographs in unacceptable circumstances is the US.

Pantglas2 Mon 26-Apr-21 12:48:24

That was six years ago! The Cambridges seem to have found a balance since then with occasional photos from the duchess making their way to the media.

There does appear to be a middle road and I’m glad William at least has found it.

Well "child", but you have to start somewhere.

Why do William and Harry need their heads banged together?

William hasn’t given an interview, hasn’t spoken publicly on
anything to do with the Sussex’s. As only said in answer to a question - his family are not racist.

As for Harry moving to America to protect his son from being
chased by the media ? William’s children are not chased by the media.

They won’t be happy bunnies if we do leave them be, trisher. Omid Scobie won’t have any takers for his updated version of Finding Freedom due out in August promising background details of the Oprah interview and no doubt more ‘truths’.

Exactly merlotgran.

I dont understand why people find it so hard to accept, that as they have chosen to employ the biggest PR company (at great expense!!) H&M wouldn't use them at every opportunity.
Drip drip drip.

What's the saying, there is no bad publicity?

A new week, a new perspective. grin
So if all the reports and OS' comments on M &H and the RF are just gossip, as the OP suggests, is the headline about Mr. Johnson and the bodies piling up just rubbish too?
Forget the actual protagonists for a moment, I'm concentrating on how some people might indiscriminately believe one report and not the other.
In my mind there must be an element of truth to both so I will sweep neither under the carpet.
Not that I'm that bothered because I'm off to walk the hound on the beach, infact we might even venture into a cave today for good measure.

Precisely!

do you know i hate the press , they make things seem worsde than they are and they are liars too . harry and william need their heads banging together ....i can see where harry is coming from ,and that he doesnt want his children bought up chased by the media . but that chat show was a load of hogwash . if you paid enough you say anything .theres no reason why the royal family cannot sit down like adults and talk . no phones/text /intstagram or whatever... just plain old talking ...

I don't live in a cave either, but the only information I get about H&M is from GN. Maybe it's time to leave them be. (as my gran used to say)

Just for a moment? Clearly not possible.

Enjoy your dog walking. I’m off to the woods with our two.

Lucca Mon 26-Apr-21 10:13:11

Honestly??😂

Anniebach Mon 26-Apr-21 10:06:36

Harry and Meg are very quiet, we can but hope

You're on this thread Namsnanny, that's probably enough.

Facebook offered me an advert for the Royal shop at Buckingham Palace yesterday shock. It is possible to stop those adverts coming on your timeline by clicking on the "remove" button, which I did.

So anybody who doesn't want to hear about any particular minor royals can always opt out of those stories, unless they really like seeing them of course.

Namsnanny Sun 25-Apr-21 22:51:15

Disagree, literally the only place I see H and M news is on GN.
I dont get this statement, others have said something similar.

But I have never clicked on any royal info on line (honestgrin) but after every GN thread I read about them, I get click bait.

When ever I talk about something I get adverts for it as well.

Does this only happen to me?!!

True, if you live in a cave you can avoid it all.

Disagree.

Literally the only place I see Harry and Meghan news is on gransnet.

I don’t live in a cave lol

I haven’t read anything, or about The Queens Commonwealth Trust, seems she hasn’t passed roles on from Harry since he lost them

Callistemon Sat 24-Apr-21 21:56:30

I think I misunderstood.

I'm not sure if they are.
Perhaps someone from the Commonwealth?

Anniebach Sat 24-Apr-21 20:29:24

Callistemon are Edward and Sophie to be ambassadors for
The Queens Canopy ? I hope so

Good

Threads meander.

Not every post on any thread strictly adheres to the OP.

Callistemon Sat 24-Apr-21 19:56:38

Edward and Sophie should be involved with The Queens Canopy

What on earth is the queens canopy?? Or should it be canapé ?🤗

I've mentioned this several times on threads. (Perhaps no-one reads my posts!)

It was a huge environmental project that Harry was undertaking on behalf of HM - he unveiled it and with with Harry's passion for the environment a great project for him.

I'm pleased Edward and Sophie will be the ambassadors for this.

Is this anything to do with William and Harry?

No
