I said in one of my past articles that, some people in the United Kingdom would only be mentioned or talked about by other human beings, when they use whatever platform they are on, to make derogatory and outlandish made-up stories and comments about the Duchess of Sussex, but not so much about the Duke.
The unfortunate problem, if one would call it that, is to read their articles, listen or watch such nonentities and respond or raise their sordid pieces on other platforms, such as during Sussex Squad podcasts. That is sadly and unwittingly giving them credit they do not deserve. These are just attention seeking sad souls using the Duchess to achieve fame.
Take an article in one of our tabloid newspapers as an example. The writer would be writing for a very few of his or her readership (they never have that many), but because the Duchess’s supporters are quick to respond, that reaction magnifies the offending article making it possible for other news outlets to repeat what was written or said. We should remember that the Duchess is always box office news. All the news media outlets around the globe want a piece of her, so much so it is frightening to observe.
We would do well to self-impose a boycott of these newspapers and television documentaries, which have done so much, although unsuccessfully to make the Duchess’s short stay in the United Kingdom unbearable. In any case, they have failed miserably.
Any keen royal observer would now observe that the people handling the the Cambridges’ Foundation have, since the Sussexes split, shepherded them decidedly into the welcoming camps of the right-wing anti immigrants Sun and Daily Mail newspapers. Prince William unlike his brother, no more blames the tabloid newspapers for killing their mother for strategic reasons. Of course in turn, the newspapers have gone all our to make the Duchess unpopular, excluding the Duke. They would not want to be seen “kicking about” the Duke of Sussex, as he is the most popular royal apart from the Monarch. Some even blamed the Duchess alone for the Elton John sponsored flight to South of France in mid summer, leaving out the Duke from their outrageous synthetic criticism.
The psychology here is that “dumping” on the Duchess naturally affects her husband. The good thing though, is that no matter what these silly buggers say or write, has no effect on her. She is focused on her family and her royal duties. She is made of steel and cannot be destroyed by silly billies. It is why people across the globe, including Mrs Rodham Clinton, the former Secretary of State have expressed great admiration for her.
The oft complaint from the Sussexes’ supporters is, why doesn’t the Monarch or Prince Charles step in to stop the tabloid harassments. The plain fact of the matter is that, they cannot. The newspapers are private and cannot be ordered or commanded to desist. However, if an article or a news item published by a newspaper, television or radio is deemed defamatory, it would be up to the Sussexes to use the law to address that. That is why they have now got their own Household with its advisers and staff. They have to take care of their own media relations and use the law as when they deem fit. They have done it before and cannot see why not in the future.
I can hear some people retort that, but Buckingham Palace put out a statement on behalf of Prince Andrew, when his friendship with the deceased American friend blew up. That statement might not have come from Her Majesty herself. Like the Sussexes, Prince Andrew has an office at Buck House. The office would have issued that statement on his behalf.
I do also sincerely think, we should avoid saying the Duchess is being bullied. That gives the gossipers the street cred that something, I honestly do not know what, is working on the Duchess. As we all saw last week Thursday’s first official outing, someone writing a silly unintelligent made up story at the Sun or the Daily Mail, has no effect whatsoever on the Duchess. She does not feel bullied or frightened by these third rate journos. She does not even know these people exist
These tabloid reporters have to be ignored to maintain one’s sanity. When one does not click to watch or read stories, is the surest way to hit hard at these buffoons. They are not worth paying any attention to or give them any credit. Do not allow them to think they are influencing your thoughts. I am mightily convinced they are not influencing a soul, as they think, but ignore them, we must.
