    Quiet on the Set

    Has anyone watched this? I think most of the revelations are things that we, and people who pay attention to Hollywood gossip, aren’t really surprised by. But it’s still shocking to see it all in one place like that.

    They really did because, while I think everyone spent a few minutes going huh, I wonder what kind of surgery she had - it didn’t really get nuts until William missed the memorial service and they put out the messed up picture. Then people really started going backwards and building it up. The PR team lost the plot there. They didn’t even need to say what was wrong with her. They just needed to say something real. I think a lot of people knew from the get that there was probably something relatively serious going on and if they had just said look they have little kids they want to take some time to find out what’s going on so they can explain it well to their kids, anything - anything real feeling probably would’ve stopped this. The speculation about what she had would’ve been there but not the crazy conspiracy theories. I think in general, the bulk of the population is still very sensitive to Diana’s boys and not wanting to repeat history with those children They could have done the bare minimum to get the sympathy and cooperation of 99% of the public. The crackpots will always be there I don’t know exactly the right way to do that, but I don’t get paid to either, and at that level, those people should be much better than this. All of that being said, I do hope that history doesn’t repeat itself for those kids. I hope whatever happens, William remembers how he was handled and does better for his kids. I guess maybe this was his effort to do so? Maybe he tied the hands of the PR people? I don’t know. I just know it was not done well.

    Honestly, the pictures look like Pippa to me. But maybe it’s just the glasses.

    She’s looked painfully thin for a while. Maybe she had IBS or colitis or something. Maybe she had bowel surgery and has a bag (even temporarily) but all of those “worst case, but really is health” situations just don’t negate a carefully staged photo.

    This is one of those times that I think there’s fire through all of that smoke. This feels like kind of a significant thing to miss. It’s totally weird that she hasn’t been even propped up for a photo in two full months. Maybe she feels like crap, but a proof of life photo… the Queen was taking photos literally hours before her actual death. They are very aware of the rumors and the fact that they haven’t even come out with a staged photo reading a book to the kids while lying in bed or something is sketch. I’m not sure what’s happening, but it’s not nothing.

    Wow. I Couldn't remember which parent went with Charlotte but as soon as I clicked on the link, there is zero question as to which sister is her mother. She’s her mother’s clone. And yes, that family has rotten luck with marriages.

    Also, for our historical record, adding in information about this story. The palace denies it, the reporter stands by her sources. William has been keeping busy amid controversy that has rocked the palace. Following Middleton’s surgery, journalist Concha Calleja alleged on the popular Spanish news program Fiesta that the princess was in a coma due to health complications, the UK Sunday Times reported. “The doctors had to make drastic decisions at that moment because of the complications that arose,” Calleja claimed, as reported by the outlet. “The decision was to put her in an induced coma. They had to intubate her. There were serious complications that they didn’t expect because the operation went well, but the post-operative period didn’t go so well.” The outlet noted that Calleja alleged that the 42-year-old was at one point in “great danger” and “practically an entire hospital” was set up at her home. Other Spanish outlets reported Calleja’s claims. Soon after, a palace source vehemently denied the report, calling it “total nonsense.” “No attempt was made by that journalist to fact-check anything that she said with anyone in the household,” the source told the outlet. “It’s fundamentally, totally made-up, and I’ll use polite English here: It’s absolutely not the case.” A spokesperson for Kensington Palace and Calleja did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s requests for comment.

    Charles has cancer and Harry is flying in. King Charles III diagnosed with cancer, Buckingham Palace says Just now By Sean CoughlanRoyal correspondent Getty Images King Charles has been diagnosed with a form of cancer, says Buckingham Palace. It is not prostate cancer, but was discovered during his recent treatment for an enlarged prostate. The type of cancer has not been revealed, but the palace said the King began "regular treatments" on Monday. Buckingham Palace says the King "remains wholly positive about his treatment". He will postpone his public engagements, with senior royals expected to stand in for him. The King "looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible", the palace said. No further details are being shared on the stage of cancer or a prognosis. The King informed both his sons personally about his diagnosis and Prince William was said to be in regular contact with his father. Prince Harry, who lives in the United States, spoke to his father and will be travelling to the UK to see him in the coming days. The King, 75, returned to London from Sandringham in Norfolk on Monday morning and the palace says he has commenced treatment as an outpatient. Although he will pause his public events, the King will continue with his constitutional role as head of state, including paperwork and private meetings. There is a constitutional mechanism for when the head of state is unable to carry out official duties - in that circumstance "counsellors of state" can be appointed to stand in for the monarch. At present that includes Queen Camilla, Prince William, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, with Prince Harry and Prince Andrew no longer to be called on as non-working royals. Prince William had also temporarily withdrawn from public engagements while he helped his wife Catherine, the Princess of Wales, as she recovered from "abdominal surgery". But it was announced earlier on Monday he would return to public duties later this week.

    I’m no doctor, but the woman has been in public non stop and has had three children. I can’t think of a single pregnancy related surgery that would be both planned, and occur when she was so newly pregnant as to not be showing, that would require 14 days in hospital. I tend to suspect it’s something else and pregnancy is just always the go to guess with Kate. I also am willing to admit I know nothing. It must be relatively serious for that length of time, so I wish her the best. I see a lot of speculating about cosmetic work, but I’d think that would be done much more discreetly. They had to know this would cause a lot of talk.

    I feel like we learned this awhile ago. I know this news just broke about the translated book, but I already knew this information and I don’t remember why I know it, but somewhere along the way this has come out. At some point, maybe they were trying to do damage control after the interview and wanted people to think all this was a harmless conversation just like, what are the grandkids gonna look like, who will they favour, will they be gingers, that kind of thing. I have no idea how the conversation really went down, but I remember thinking that the palace version that came out after the interview sounded a lot more benign than what was said during the Oprah interview, so whichever side you were on there was a version that worked for you.

    This one makes me sad. He had such a hard time with his demons in life and you just always wanted it to work out for him. I’m not sure if he had a relapse or if his heart was in bad shape because of it, or he was just an unfortunate younger death, but can’t help but speculate.

    There are just certain celebs that seem so disconnected from reality that I think my eyes are going to get stuck in a permanent roll every time I listen to them. Jada and Paltrow are way way up there.
