The Curious Case of Julian Payne


By

Maria Chang

Meet Prince Charles’ communication secretary (aka spin doctor), Julian Payne. While he and his client might bridle at him being labeled a spin doctor, we’ll let his resume speak for him.

Julian is Communications Secretary to Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall. His specialism includes. Reputation Management and FTSE Financial and Corporate communications.

It’s commonly known that reputation management is a fancy way of saying spin doctor, Reputation management refers to the influencing and controlling of an individual’s or group’s reputation. So, Prince Charles has a new spin doctor. But wait, there’s more. Because the banner says Hawthorn, not Clarence House. So along with his position at Clarence House, Mr. Payne is also is a Non-Executive Director at Hawthorn. What is Hawthorn?

That is Mr. Julian Payne, Communications Secretary to England’s monarch-in-waiting and non-Executive Director at a Consultancy firm that “shapes perceptions and perspectives”. Is Mr. Payne exhibiting expertise in shaping perception and perspectives for Prince Charles.? The jury is still out and we don’t care. What we care about is the public sentiment reflected by Mr. Payne through his twitter feed. Mr. Payne has a twitter account, a twitter account that went private a day or two after Sussexes’ supporters discovered its presence. On his profile page, Mr. Payne was careful to say that it is his “personal account

Can you call it personal when you have tweets are related to people with whom you are connected through your work? And because our concern is for the Sussex’s and only the Sussexes; what can we glean from his Sussex-related, or more specifically Duchess Meghan-related activities. Join us as we take a peek


Mr. Payne doesn’t tweet, but his likes and retweets tells a tale. What are we to make of his first like, of a tweet referring to Duchess Meghan’s posterior? Is he agreeing it could easily upstage the posterior of the sister of Diana’s other son’s wife; that her “bum is toned;” or the ridiculousness of comparing a peach to a pancake?

Is Mr. Payne liking Chris Jackson’s photographic skills, the black and white filter the mention of Edinburgh or Duchess Meghan’s smile?


What is the draw here, that the Duchess is a loving daughter missing her father, or that her heart is as cold as Christmas and her “poor father” is the victim or is he agreeing with Chris Ship’s question? What we do know is that this is months after her wedding. A wedding to which her father was supposed to walk Duchess Meghan down the aisle until he betrayed her by colluding with the tabloids. What Mr. Payne, reputation manager to Their Royal Highnesses, should have known at the time he was liking this tweet is that Mr. Markle did not stop with the wedding day betrayal, that he continued colluding with the tabloids in betraying her, selling photographs and even a letter she wrote him after his betrayal. What the reputation manager should know is that both sides presented in that tweet were false and was nothing but the reporter’s attempt to exploit the harassment of a child by a toxic parent. A child who is also the daughter-in-law of Mr. Payne’s client

Is Mr. Payne agreeing with his client’s publicly expressed sentiment about the arrival of his fourth grandchild? Does Mr. Payne share the sentiment or is he perchance liking the sound bite because he wrote it?

One cannot help but wonder why a ‘nobody’ like Phil Dampier is on Mr. Payne’s radar. This is a man whose claim to fame is that he, like a thousand others, wrote a few royal biographies and was fading back into obscurity until he decided to wade into the media’s harassment of Duchess Meghan. His ‘expertise’ was his willingness to hype the lies and innuendoes, and in return, he was rewarded with guest commentary in the tabloid rag leading the charge against Duchess Meghan. Why like this tweet, why not direct his client to issue a statement in support of the Sussexes?


With this ‘like’ Mr. Payne, reputation manager to Their Royal Highnesses seems to have decided it was time to make his sentiment clear. Mr. Downes thinks Duchess Meghan of so little consequence that he cannot be bothered to address her as more than an initial, a courtesy he gave to the white royals. He tweets in praise of the future King and future-future King, but uses the tabloids’ manufactured broken protocol to dismiss the recalcitrant Harry and his Black wife with no name. In the midst of claims that your client was complicit in the tabloids’ harassment of his pregnant daughter-in-law, the reputation manager decided that his personal public account would be a ‘safe space’ to agree with a sentiment so disrespectful of his client’s daughter-in-law. In which reputation management manual is this listed as a good idea? UNLESS it was the section of the manual about how to denigrate others to uplift your client.
Or could it be that Mr. Payne only wants one of the most popular members to depart? The clout chaser, Laurence Fox, is the poster child of white privilege – negligible to non-existent talent, trades on his family’s name to carve out a middling career. He was given the opportunity to regain the relevance he craved through a guest spot on a weekly question and answer show. Mr. Fox is one of those privileged white men who think racism is an opinion and while he vehemently denies that Duchess Meghan was the victim of racism, he does feel that by not agreeing with him, you are being racist towards him (reverse racism “is not a thing’). Desperate to hold on to another fifteen minutes of relevance, Mr. Fox has decided that racist trolling is the way to go, and it seems Mr. Payne feels they are words to be shared so he retweeted them.

There are those who will make the argument that “retweets do not equal endorsement,” but when you are the reputation manager of a client whose family is negatively impacted by the contents of your ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’ you are very much endorsing the sentiments. And since you chose to take your work ‘home with you’, you have negated your claim of your tweets being ‘personal’. Which client with an ounce of care about their reputation would be fine with reputation manager tweeting about subjects that could reflect badly on them? UNLESS the consultant is tweeting, safe in the knowledge that his actions reflect his client’s wishes.

The decision is yours dear reader, is Mr. Payne foolish or strategic? Keep in mind that days maybe even hours after his tweets became a topic of conversation among Sussexes supporters his account went private. His response has piqued curiosity, not quell it. Users are now convinced that another conspirator in the harassment of the Sussexes have been exposed and his actions are now seen as further proof of the Royal Family’s involvement in the coordinated campaign of harassment to return Prince Harry to the Royal fold by getting rid of his not-white wife and child by whatever means necessary. Yes, we mean by whatever means, because while divorce is the natural assumption; what was the aim of harassing a pregnant woman when it is a medical fact that stress can affect the mother and baby’s health? Think about that, then draw your own conclusion as to why Julian Payne Communications Secretary to Their Royal Highnesses at Clarence House thought it a wise decision to publicly join in the denigration of the only non-white member of the Royal Family

    Unbelievable. We new: Harry and Meghan have made the right decision to leave. The short and long term prospect for their happiness and good working relations in this family was…. devastation: they stood zero chance!

    Nothing has changed since the Diana days. Charles has not learned a thing. His office (CH) still is a snake pit. His courtiers are still colluding with the press and RRs against the once that he wants/they want to stain, portray negative and harass, out of jealousy and envy, and to make Charles look good. It is mind blowing that Charles is allowing this to happen to his own son and daughter in law, after his and his courtiers’ role in the Diana hate campaign years ago. You must be a very petty, small, insecure person if that is your way of existence. The man is not fit to become king (neither does the other future future in line, who seem to have copy his father in all aspects: looking at his jealousy over H&M, press collusion and how his office (KP) operates).

    The RF is an institution that is referred to as the firm. This firm is nothing less than a cult. They can uplift and destroy who ever they so wish and not getting their hands dirty. Then in walk the spin doctor with the action of a tarantula spins his web around his prey to extract every minuscule of substance to be rid of it, when it didn’t work he attack with his poisonous venom, which is worst than the embodiment of his web, this causes unbearable pain and mental connotations elevated the strongest could not withstand, However, his prey survived and escaped to a better clime, and will live happily ever after.
    This was a hard read but a good one, if that makes sense. Will have to read again to ingest.

    The tragic irony is that the LIGHT of the stunning, accomplished, gifted, grounded Meghan, Duchess of Sussex LOVED by her adoring husband and son, as well as her engaged and informed loyalists illuminated what she could not see until she captured the hearts of billions around the world, revealing the cockroaches underneath the ornate cushions. So, NO, she didn’t know what she was getting into!

    Thank you for the article, Maria.

    I do believe that the RF is in on the smear campaign. And I mean the heir as well as the future heir as well, I will not be surprised when there is an inkling that they were and are; because there is no way that the tabs or anyone in the media will have the guts to go all out with the vitriol. The world needs to see this, the truth must and will come out. And justice must prevail.

    I hope the Sussexes see through the facade and chart their course in a completely different direction soon. Godspeed.

    This is a wonderful article, this should be seen by everyone in the Commonwealth and America, notice I didn’t say the UK because they are so conditioned by the British Media, I lot of them have lost objective reasoning, since the tabloid newspapers and broadcast journalists are one in the same, even so called none gossip publications have joined in the feasting of Meghan in order to gain clicks, no wonder when Trump called her nasty twice once when she was on maternity leave no one in the royal family defended her even #10 didn’t now we know why the man in charge of the communications for Prince Charles is in bed with the royal reporters, she never had a chance, I keep hearing the advice they were giving her never complain, never explain and it will ease up, no like the article states they wanted to hound her into losing her child, leaving Harry or having a nervous breakdown, this was well orchestrated and thought out long before the Wedding.

      Thanks Maria for the wonderfully write up. Thanks to Sussex squad intelligence and diligence.
      I share your sentiments Pinky, the UK subjects have become quite pitiable in the hypnotic media conditioning that they seem to display.
      Maybe the RF never had any plans for the marriage to happen, maybe they agreed because they felt they could “salvage” Harry from it via the pre wedding Father drama. Maybe Meghan was supposed to have taken her independent self out of the racist blackamoor brooch & other unknown racism environment. Maybe she was expected to take a flight to see her dad after the staged photo drama & be held back from the wedding by his “heart attack “, after all, what daughter would leave that for her own wedding. Maybe they would have preferred she lost the baby so that Harry would more easily be reinducted into their parasitic fold. Maybe they are more dysfunctional than people think.
      I don’t think Mr Julian reflects a positive message and since he is communication secretary of Charles, he can not but be reflecting Charles through whom he has the closest connection to Meghan.
      It is unfortunate that an institution whose primary function is supposed to be charity, centers their communication on how to control the reception of their office. That to me, is scam because it seeks to control every avenue of accountability and scrutiny.
      Following Harry & Meghan makes me believe that the BRF can be a true platform to meets global justice and equity. However, the treatment of Meghan shows that they are not invested into that potential. For the good of ending the colonial and imperial bondage they still/may hold over nations, and the sabotage of the fair media which should be the greatest benefit of civilization and freedom – ABOLISH THE MONARCH.

    In addition, his wife is Danielle Lawler who is an editor with Tatler, contributor to Hello Magazine and former celebrity gossip columnist with the Mirror. Tatler has not been kind to Meghan. Has he shared Royal info with his wife? Is there collusion? Do they have a shared agenda?

    I’m totally in agreement with this well versed article. The Royal Family is the Mastermind behind the attacks against Meghan. Their aim was ( and still is) the eradication of Duchess Meghan, Baby Archie & the dissolution of The Sussexes’ marriage ( “by any means necessary”). They absolutely detest having this racially mixed woman & her child in The British Royal Family.
