Poor Kate, again she has had another intrusive pap shot, and with her in a Bikini with her baby bump on show.

Already I can see this child being papped every moment of he/she's life and I wish the paparazzi at least give her one moment alone

I do think that news organisations over here giving it such a high profile isn't helping though. Few people would know about these pics were it not for the DM outcry. I do feel very sorry for them though. It must be absolutely horrible to know there are photographers willing to do anything to get a shot. Just imagine if that were you, literally having nowhere to hide. People will pop up and say, oh she knew what she was getting into, blah blah blah. They're still entitled to some privacy. How is it in the public interest to see these pictures?

Well they are in the public eye, they were on a public beach.
Yeah I feel a bit sorry for them, but not that much.

I picked up a copy of the Evening Standard (main London daily newspaper) today- the front page headline was "we'll feel poorer for 3 more years" with how living standards are falling, high inflation & stagnating wages.
Next to it was a pic of the royal couple with comments about their anguish at the photos, while on holiday at their £19,000/week villa in Mustique.

Personally I just can't work up a whole load of sympathy for them...

DomesticCEO Wed 13-Feb-13 19:50:23

Of course the baby is going to be photographed - it's the heir to the bloody throne!

I'm with amandine on this, can't summon up a whole lot of sympathy for a couple who live in such unbelievable luxury. So many other things to worry about tbh.

amandine07 Wed 13-Feb-13 20:05:30

I'm not a fan of Kate & Wills, I watched their wedding that's about the extent of my interest in the royals.

However, all this bleating about privacy is just making think more and more about how disconnected they are from the average man or woman in the UK.

I think people will quickly get fed up of hearing about it- each time they are off on a luxury holiday somewhere, if there's going to be a "photos scandal" and subsequent outcry, it's all going to get awfully tedious...actually I think it's got to that point already.

I think they should just count their blessings that Kate's pregnancy seems to be progressing well, that they do not have to worry about the prospect of maybe losing their jobs or struggling to pay the mortgage or rent.

Personally I think they should just suck it up, all the media overload about it in the UK is just fuelling the whole thing.

lemonmuffin Wed 13-Feb-13 20:12:27

Exactly.

Pampered, privileged and living a life of utter luxury that most of us can only dream about and, lets face it, they've never really earned have they?

Can't muster up much sympathy I'm afraid.

DomesticCEO Wed 13-Feb-13 20:12:54

Totally agree amandine - it's all a lot of nonsense.

What really makes me laugh is the people making the biggest noise about the "invasion of privacy" are usually the same people who buy the bloody magazines that fuel the nonsense in the first place!

Numberlock Wed 13-Feb-13 20:15:08

Bring on the revolution.

I felt sorry for her when she got photoed in the private grounds of that villa. But been on a public beach in a bikini and pregnant she must have known there would be photos. She could have put a swimsuit on if she was really that bothered.

PuffPants Wed 13-Feb-13 20:20:41

Are you kidding OP? One moment alone? She's barely ever photographed? Since her pregnancy was announced in December there hasn't been a single photo of her till now. She was, of course, pictured at the Sports Personality thing and the unveiling of her portrait but that's in the line of work.

Btw, these new pics are not pap shots, they were taken by a member of the public on a public beach. She is wearing a bikini, not standing around naked (yes, boobs and bum out) in full view of a public road like last time.

Wills and Kate are given an unprecedented amount of privacy actually and are rarely papped.

Numberlock Wed 13-Feb-13 20:22:37

Lol at the use of the word work Puff.

amandine07 Wed 13-Feb-13 20:23:00

Vive la revolution!

Seriously I just think there are way bigger problems going on, if this is the extent of their troubles, well they just need to get over it.

Precisely Lemonmuffin- it's not like they've worked their asses off to earn a decent living and actually afford a luxury holiday themselves. Massively over privileged and not really showing much insight into how lucky they really are...

PuffPants Wed 13-Feb-13 20:23:37

Btw, now we've all seen how well she's doing, I look forward to hearing she's back at "work" soon, visiting her charities, cutting ribbons, pressing flesh - you know, all the stuff she's meant to be doing.

Highly doubt it though.

amandine07 Wed 13-Feb-13 20:31:00

Here here Numberlock the use of the word 'work' in relation to Kate is all a bit of a farce.

She is a highly over privileged young woman, I for one cannot put her & Wills up on a pedestal and bow down in deference.

In fact Kate just reminds me of one of those sloaney birds at university who were not ashamed to admit that they were primarily there to find a husband- in between 3 hours of lectures a week, the degree was all a bit irrelevant.
I digress...

landofsoapandglory Wed 13-Feb-13 20:31:41

What gets my goat, is when they announced the due date, some royal correspondent popped up on the news and said we wouldn't see much of her throughout the pregnancy as she was too ill! (I know HG makes you really poorly, not doubting she had it BTW) But if she is too ill to do a few meet and greets how the heck did she manage a trans Atlantic flight?confused.

DomesticCEO Wed 13-Feb-13 20:32:10

Genuine question, but I thought hyperemesis (sp) was supposed to last all the way through pg? Or am I wrong on that?

Yes, agree with the lol about work - not what I would call work, lucky cow!

lemonmuffin Wed 13-Feb-13 21:07:14

Both of them were born with a sugar-coated silver spoon in their mouths.

I don't begrudge them that, it's how our society works these days, they just got lucky <shrug>

Just do us all a favour and don't bloody whinge about the teeny tiny little drawbacks that come with it!

Numberlock Wed 13-Feb-13 21:12:34

I begrudge it seeing as it's our money that's paying for it. Freeloading anachronistic parasites. And give me strength when people chirp up with the line 'They bring tourists to the UK'.

VivaLeBeaver Wed 13-Feb-13 21:14:26

Hyperemesis can last throughout pregnancy but not always.

VivaLeBeaver Wed 13-Feb-13 21:15:10

Also she could be on meds for the sickness, something like cyclizine or ondansetron would help combat sickness a lot.

KarlosKKrinkelbeim Wed 13-Feb-13 21:17:16

There's already a thread on this which has established pretty convincingly that no-one gives a shiny shite. And why should they. I'm sure we all have more pressing concerns.

If you're that bothered about 'poor Kate's' privacy, why are you sharing the pictures? hmm

Sparklingbrook Wed 13-Feb-13 21:23:07

Karlos is right. I started the other thread. What a mistake. sad

DomesticCEO Wed 13-Feb-13 21:44:13

Thanks Viva, I was just a bit hmm about the whole thing, have to confess.

amandine07 Wed 13-Feb-13 22:40:50

Where is the other thread?

expatinscotland Wed 13-Feb-13 22:41:59

Boo.fucking.hoo.

DomesticCEO Thu 14-Feb-13 14:17:31

here it is amandine - it seems we're very far from alone!

amandine07 Thu 14-Feb-13 18:57:04

Thanks DomesticCEO

I will head over to check it out & brace myself for royal family sycophantic, hysterical wailing over "poor Kate, such tragedy on her luxury holiday, being photographed in her bikini, how very dare they!!"

DomesticCEO Thu 14-Feb-13 19:18:51

BerylStreep Fri 15-Feb-13 09:30:34

Well I feel sorry for her. Just because they aren't worrying about the mortgage and making ends meet doesn't mean they are fair game for harassment. The photos taken of her on that balcony, from about 1/2 a mile away were a complete disgrace.

I think someone said upthread that it was a member of the public who took the photos on the beach, but the article linked to at the start of the thread (which doesn't show the photos) says the photos were taken with a long-range lens from a boat. Sounds like paparazzi to me.

Molehillmountain Fri 15-Feb-13 20:02:22

I was with them on the topless photos taken whilst they were in a private dwelling. But whilst I don't like celeb papping much, I think they have to grin and bear it. Different once junior royal is born. They were in public. I think public empathy with them could wear thin if they are in expensive holidays and making a fuss.

amandine07 Fri 15-Feb-13 21:35:35

Yes the topless photos were a total invasion as they were on a private property and, they believed, were not in public view.

These photos from Mustique, on the other hand, were taken on a public beach- if she doesn't want her 'baby bump' in the magazines then Kate needs to realise that she either covers up or stays somewhere private.

Wearing a bikini on a public beach and getting photographed by paparazzi, a fellow holidaymaker or whoever- it's going to end up in the public eye via the magazines- whether we as the general public are interested or not.

I can understand some of the outrage about the topless photos, but this is all starting to sound like whining from an over privileged couple who are in the public eye whether they like it or not.
What can he do, abdicate?

diddl Sat 16-Feb-13 08:44:16

"What can he do, abdicate? "

One can hope...

Molehillmountain Sat 16-Feb-13 13:58:51

Thinking about it a bit more, I wonder if the topless photos have made them hyper sensitive to photos generally. If these latest ones had come first, maybe they'd have been less worried.

BelindaCarlisle Sat 16-Feb-13 14:40:59

LOL at roddy chisholm battten

fuck where DO these people come from?

noddyholder Sat 16-Feb-13 14:42:06

poor kate? ffs

BelindaCarlisle Sat 16-Feb-13 14:44:14
DomesticCEO Sat 16-Feb-13 14:46:07

What's the relevance of Roddy Battern??? Except he's also a chinless wonder!!

Total non-story. If you didn't know she was pregnant you wouldn't guess from those pics.

noddyholder Sat 16-Feb-13 14:51:51

haha

you can be the kind of royal that lives like the rest of us (richer though obviously) or you can live the high life as a British royal. this is a non story. I did feel bad for her when press we're calling and getting medical info on her though
