' Kate...the illusionary Princess '
' Illusion is the first of all pleasures ' Voltaire
I am a British expat journalist, writer-director and former top radio DJ US.
I cannot understand why all the FUSS about those silly papparazzi photos. When an ordinary commoner, as the royals like to tag them,marries into un-elected British royalty, an archcaic, tradition fanatical,snooty, pompous,elite mentality, extremely wealthy bunch like the so-called court of st.james......well she must expect to be photographed and sought after by the scandal hungry British and foreign media. British newspapers,- and their are more around, probably than all of europe combined,- who survive on providing delicious gossip for anxious British readers with something to gloat and frown about over breakfast ! It has NOTHING whatsoever to do with honorable, ethical,idealistic or responsible journalism...lol ! Media is business like any other and their there to make money !
The public were most likely more interested in prince harry's anatomy shots humpingly enticing I'm sure to all those sex craving, royal yearning fems out there, not that much unlike the reaction to Elvis on stage or Chippindale male strippers or ' the full monty '...lol !
Instead of being angry and aloof with royal indignity at the French daring to reveal Kate's modesty, appeal and natural femininity,etc (The French enjoy what the British commit...lol) they should be flattered that the country that practically invented sex appeal,- I have posted a photo of French beauty Bridgitte Bardot, the World's first sex godess for comparison,- should be interested enough to pay homage to a British royal new girl on the block who continuously and extrovertedly seeks exposure and media publicity on the World stage almost competing with Milan, London, NY and Tokyo fashion models and Hollywood movie celebrities...lol
I agree it's NOT nice or fair to invade peoples privacy and take photos without their knowledge or consent, that is clearly wrong, but at the same time, globe trotting, luxurious, celebrity lifestyle enjoying Kate has been receiving more publicity and World media attention than all the actresses on the Planet combined ! while the British taxpayer funding their endless jaunts struggles to survive ! So she, Wills and all the other royals should NOT be surprised when something like this latest episode occurs ! They should take it with a pinch of salt and stiff upper lip which is what the royals have always done !
I do not personally like the papparazzi, of course they have to make a living too, but their photos would NOT sell if their was NO demand !
Finally, if someone wants to be a Princes, Queen or whatever and enter the fabled fantasy World of royal never never land...they must expect to be scrutinized 24/7 or if they tire of it.....simply return to their life as an ordinary commoner again !
