One would think that, when serialisation of Omid Scobie and Caroline Durand’s book ‘Finding Freedom’ was going to debut in the Times Group of newspapers and so much noise was expanded on it, it was going to reveal secrets that would lead to the peasant’s revolt to get rid of the British monarchy, judging by the reaction of old journalists and so-called monarchists. Dark warnings and lies were written and spoken by the usual suspects, even before the serialisation began.
Some newspaper gossipers – why call them journalists – even felt the need to put in their retaliation first, when they had not read the book or read the Times’ pickled version yet. The ugly Camilla Hound Dog Tominey in the Daily Telegraph felt the need to take advantage to attack the Sussexes, especially the Duchess, even though the authors on numerous occasions responded to such questions, that they were not interviewed. Of course, Camilla Hound Dog knew the story she wrote about and told several times in TV interviews and made money to buy her garish lipsticks, that the Duchess of Sussex made the Duchess of Cambridge cry just before the great wedding in 2018, was a big lie and would be exposed as such in the book. Everything she has ever written about the Duchess are lies mostly fed by her so-called ‘insiders’ at Kensington Palace. Because of her friendship with Prince Andrew, she has done her best to tell lies about the Duchess anytime time questions about Jeffrey Epstein came up, just to divert attention. She has no credibility whatsoever. For someone who never spoke with the Duchess, the oft accusation of her behaviour was very annoying and stupid.
Yet hound dog face accuses the Duchess of bad behaviour. Why the Kensington Palace dirty brigade said nothing to deny the story and allowed that to fester in an apparent attempt to taint the Duchess’s name, was despicable and difficult to understand. Especially coming after their successful tour of four countries in Oceania. Was it to help someone? Living in the United Kingdom all this period, I never heard from anyone outside of the Royal ROTA accuse the Duchess of behaving inappropriately at events or during tours. Even among the Royal ROTA, I have not heard any of them accuse the Duchess of bad behaviour. Hound dogface has never explained or put on record the bad behaviour she accuses the Duchess of.
Over at the Daily Gutter, the Duke of Cambridge’s ‘tabloid father and protector’ Richard Kay in the news media felt compelled to defend his ‘son’ from being labeled racist, snobbish, if not a fascist thug. Mostly the conservative gossipers in the conservative newspapers have been up in arms. Their lies and abuse have been rumbled by people, who were also witnesses of events when the Sussexes were Senior Working Royals. The Times Group itself is not absolved from some of the nasty lies. Their gossipers have equally been found to lie and be abusive to the Duchess. Their little token Royal Family toady, Roya Nikka is as horrible and a liar like the rest of them. In her head, she believes she is a white English rose, working for the London Times and a royal correspondent. Their columnist Camilla Long, has taken unnecessary potshots at the Duchess for no apparent reason.
In the final analysis, most of what is in the ‘Finding Freedom’ was known to most people who wanted to know. The lies have been debunked by quite a few people, including the Squaddies. There are some gossipy bits, which should not have been put in there, but maybe to make their book seem authentic, were included, and thereby inviting accusations by their enemies that the Sussexes had cooperated in writing the book.
The newspapers are failing badly. The daily circulations are down considerably and even their digital interests have not escaped the dreaded drop. The Daily Gutter’s print advertising is down 69 % and the digital income, which they have been relying on for a while, is down 17 %. A hundred jobs have been cut. I am quite certain that by the end of summer more revenues would be lost and with that more job cuts. I should not crow for the job losses, but this newspaper group has tormented the Duchess to such an extent that, I would not feel anything but elated to see the closure of the whole caboodle.
The same loses are going on at other newspaper groups. Reach, the company that owns the Daily and Sunday Mirror, the People and unfortunately owns the two Express newspapers are hemorrhaging also. This week they announced 550 job cuts. The BBC is not left out, they have closed programmes to save money. An old crock who fronted a political programme and used his position to abuse the Sussexes over their Commonwealth Youth Leadership zoom conference was put out to grass. Was I happy or was I happy?
When anyone or a family buys a home, it is not news. When Bill Gates started building his space-age family mansion, it was a news event, because of its size and look, I was in admiration. Some idiots condemned it, as it is usual with human beings and jealousy. However, after its completion, nothing whatsoever was heard. But when the Sussexes confirmed on Wednesday evening that they have bought a house and lived in it for almost six weeks, some old fools in the British media went bonkers and have felt they have to comment. An imbecile in the gutter Sun in banal headlines, declared the Sussexes are unemployed, so how could they pay their mortgage? Others calculated the monthly payments and wondered aloud; is that not very strange and bizarre? If mortgage had not been mentioned, it would have been an ongoing conversation and insults that Prince Charles bought the house for them. Two married adults with a son decided to buy a family home to settle as they have not done so yet since the May 19, 2018, wedding, but these scavengers decided to comment and insult the Duchess, because she comes from California and roped the husband in to buy a house with her.
These old decrepit people still think the Duke of Sussex is still that 18 years old rumbustious young man, who was battling newspaper scavengers and paparazzi outside London night clubs. Even the cantankerous old photographer Arthur Edwards felt roused enough to scream the Duke should grow up. Grow up from what to what, I did not bother to follow up. All these people have no inkling who the Duke is. They do not even remember that he grew up a long time ago, went to the Army, went to war twice as one of the best Apache helicopter flyers, and ended up as Major Henry Windsor. They forget that he singlehandedly started the phenomenally successful Invictus Games, the Endowment Fund, which is now part of the Invictus Games and the aids charity Sentebale. They think the Duke somehow, has been influenced by his wife to abandon the sweet place where he belongs and should return to it. Who do they think they are to determine what he should do with his life and who he should fall in love with? His father could not determine that.
As the Duke himself said at their engagement interview, these people think they know him, but do not. If he were deliriously happy with his life before meeting his wife, he would have persuaded her with physical evidence for them to stay for better things to come. However, he was not and from all indications even after the wedding, things got worse for him and then her. When you hear these old fogies talk about a couple who just began real life with a young son. I wonder whether they have grown up married children and would want their marriage to break up irrespective of the fact that, they are in love and happy. These are racists and careless. Their hatred of the Duchess has blinded them to any sense of anything. The life and future of the Sussexes, in any case, have nothing whatsoever to do with anyone in the United Kingdom, Royal family, news media et al.
The Queen showed her cruel hand woefully when she listened to her old crusty advisers and William to deprive the Duke of his military honours, and the Commonwealth Youth Ambassadorship. It was also cruel and incomprehensible to ask the Sussexes to start paying rent on a property everyone thought was a wedding gift when the couple had spent so much money to make it habitable. They are also paying back the controversial renovation cost, even though they are tenants. All these when Prince Andrew is under FBI watch, been requested for an interview, but is refusing to countenance. He still has his HRH, withdrawn from all public life, lives in a huge mansion on the grounds of Windsor Castle, he still has his tax-funded security and gets spending money from his mother. The Sussexes, even though not officially working royals, are still championing their charities in the United Kingdom successfully. The Sussexes, meanwhile, must pay for their own security, because of the constant bleating from their enemies in the news media. Any leverage the Queen might have had on the Sussexes or the Duke as the grandson is now dissipated and can never be resurrected.
The Duke as Prince Harry, when a single man never had any good relations with the news media, but with the addition of the Duchess, who has done absolutely nothing wrong whatsoever, their unbearable situation here increased horribly. The British news media should realise that whatever they do, would not change anything. The Sussexes are one loving unit, something they have not bothered to school themselves in. After all this time, it has not entered their foggy brains that love matters. A lot of these scavengers are not in loving relationships, just conveniences for public consumption. Some are not even married to know what it is.
So, the solidity of the Sussexes’ loving unit in the face of the crude attempt to split the Duchess off, must baffle them a great deal. I would recommend to them to look for a video of the engagement interview conducted by the BBC and watch it over a cup of the best tea they can brew. They should listen carefully to the Duke. They should also listen to the Sentebale speech he gave after the step back in January. He is found the happiness he has been looking for all his life. Nothing any scavenger in the UK, US, Australia, and Canada would write or say, can split them up for the Duke to return to his previous life. In crude speak, all the outsiders should bugger off, leave them well alone. I have not mentioned trolls here, because they are not human beings at all.
