Duchess Kate Wins Legal Battle With Tatler Magazine
After a legal battle with royal lawyers, the Tatler magazine finally caved in and admitted defeat.
The royal family just won a big victory, especially Kate Middleton, against the high society and lifestyle Tatler magazine, forcing them to remove numerous inaccuracies and false articles about the royals.
The publisher was accused of posting a ‘string of cruel lies’ about Kate’s mother Carole Middleton, who was compared to the TV character of Hyacinth Bucket, which is in no way a compliment, as well as things about her sister Pippa.
The magazine described the pair as ‘snobby’ before Kensington Palace decided to call in their lawyers.
There were also very distasteful comparisons between ‘perilously thin’ Kate and Princess Diana, which further angered the family.
So they demanded that the ‘inaccuracies and false representations’ be removed-with the magazine complying.
Kate has denied and marked as false any suggestions that she felt “exhausted and trapped” after Harry and Meghan left the royal family and their royal duties.
At the moment, Tatler removed a huge chunk of their published articles on Kate. Its publisher Condé Nast admitted defeat in order to somehow save their ‘long-standing relationship with the Royal Family’.
Before the removal, a source close to the Royals told the MailOnSunday of the Cambridge’s fury.
They said it was “an extremely cruel and wounding barb” before adding: “It’s disgusting. It’s sexist and woman-shaming at its very worst.”
The source continued: “The piece is full of lies. There is no truth to their claim that the Duchess feels overwhelmed with work, nor that the Duke is obsessed with Carole Middleton. It’s preposterous.
“The whole thing is class snobbery. Tatler may think it’s immune from action as it’s read by the Royals and on every coffee table in every smart home.
“But it makes no difference. It’s ironic that the Royals’ favourite magazine is now being trashed by them.”
One of their main ‘lies’ was the suggestion that Kate was “furious” at the increased workload she had to pick up after Harry and Meghan’s departure from the royal family and that she feels “exhausted and trapped.”
Later, the magazine claimed that Kate’s mother Carole “puts people’s backs up” and has “Hyacinth Bucket aspirations of grandeur”.
Another extract from an article describes her as “exceedingly demanding, fussy and questioned everything”, with it quickly turned into name-calling, writing “Carole is a terrible snob”.
Tatler added: “Pippa now speaks like the Queen and is absolutely paranoid about the paparazzi”.
This is just one of many magazines that use slander and defamation as their main source of clicks, ruining the already sour relationship that the royals have with the media.
