The Queen gave ‘express consent‘ for books
Queen ElizabethAngela Kelly, Angela Kelly’s former tailor, will not quietly leave for the gracious and gracious home in the north of England given to her by her King Charles. After last week’s revelation that he gave her residence in exchange for her signing an NDA for her—after she was forced to leave her home in Windsor—the mail on sunday report that the late queen had written a letter to her former costumer “expressly consenting” to her publishing three books.
Only two of her books have been published to date, and Charles—allegedly asked Kelly to sign an NDA in exchange for her new mining jobs — might have thought the possibility of more behind-the-scenes Palace secrets being revealed had been snuffed out. safe.
The NDA itself is said to have explicitly banned the terms “palace” and “king” – which doesn’t exactly make Kelly dislike what she picked out of a bunch of things. Charles is said to have thought Kelly was telling too much when writing about the queen’s private moment of reflection after Prince Philip’s funeral two years ago,” the paper said. Letters speak.
Sources close to Kelly speculate that the queen’s written approval “could even take precedence over the NDA.”
A source told the newspaper: “Her possession of such a letter from Queen Elizabeth II is certainly a formidable weapon in her arsenal. That’s something because it looks like she’s protecting her favorite assistant from beyond the grave. It is quite important because it includes the wishes of the queen, and no one wants to ignore those.”
Kelly seems displeased with the way she’s been treated since the queen’s death – from having extremely high status and influence in the palace to now she’s gone. The Daily mail reported that last weekend she posted on her Instagram account—agent high heels—a deleted image with two quotes, one: “No matter how kind and generous you are, you will never please an ungrateful person,” and another: “ Learning to stay calm when you are not respected is a superpower.”
William and Harry meet Paul Burrell before Harry’s wedding
Prince William and Prince Harry had a secret meeting with Paul Burrell, their mother Princess Diana’s housekeeper, before Harry’s wedding to Meghan Markle, the Sun report. The newspaper said that while it was thought the brothers had last seen Burrell after Diana’s funeral in 1997, the trio met in 2017 at Kensington Palace.
A royal source revealed nothing specific about what was discussed. “It was a very private meeting, but the brothers wanted to speak to someone close to their mother,” the source said. “There were certain aspects of her life that they felt Paul could explain more clearly. They asked to keep it all a secret and he respected that. Paul is happy to tell them everything he knows and clear up their memories.”
In Burrell’s 2001 book, a royal missionabout his time as Diana’s “stone”, Harry wrote in his own memoirs, Preventive: “My mother’s old housekeeper wrote a report that actually said nothing. It’s merely one’s self-justifying, self-centered version of facts. My mother used to call this housekeeper a close friend, tacitly trusting him. We, too. Now this. He is taking advantage of her disappearance to make money. It makes my blood boil.”
Charles keeps it cold
King Charles’ environmental credentials are often cited; This is now believed to have spread to Buckingham Palace’s swimming pool, its temperature suddenly dropping, sources with pale toes and shivering talk to Sunday Times.
The king’s staff noted that the thermostat appeared to have been turned off, in an attempt by Charles to reduce the royal family’s energy use. A source told time: “Some pool users have noticed that the temperature of the water has dropped and is a bit cooler than before. They were informed that the King had turned off the heating.”
“Senior members of the royal family are allowed to use the pool, but must check in advance whether any royal members are planning to swim, to avoid clashes,” the newspaper revealed.
It’s also a “basic” pool, nothing fancy about it (aside from the royals having their own palace pools). A former aide told the newspaper. “The water is warm but definitely not glamorous. There are no benches. It’s not like a spa where you want to linger. You are inside and out.
Charity boss Kate found guilty of murder
Kate Middleton is reportedly unaware that the head of a charity she sponsors is a convicted murderer. The Mirror report that while colleagues of Children’s Action Group boss Paul Carberry knew he had stabbed a father-to-be on a train in 1979 (when Carberry was 16; he’s 60 now), Kate and her husband Prince William didn’t know when they met Carberry at an event a year ago.
Carberry, now 60 years old, told Mirror: “It’s something I regret every single day of my life. A family without their loved ones because of me… I committed a terrible crime, which I deeply regret.”
Carberry said to Mirror that it haunted him that the child of victim John Murray had never met her father. “Of course. For me, and especially the profession that I am in, and come from a close, loving family. It’s absolutely a factor in my life. And, in fact, that was a factor in what I did then. I didn’t try to get in touch because I didn’t want to add suffering to anyone and didn’t want to open up old wounds for anyone. .
“I had a lot of chances to score, a lot of chances, and I chose not to. And the first thing for me is that some mothers don’t have sons because me and some kids don’t have fathers. The last thing I want is to keep recording talking about my progress or whatever. The trustees know and I always acknowledge my background on a need-to-know basis.”
