SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Is there a new royal interview on the agenda?

0

Prince William has already expressed disgust about the racism claim in Prince Harry and Meghan’s ‘tell it all’ interview with Oprah Winfrey.

Now he and Kate could give their own explosive side to the story.

For it has been revealed that William made it clear privately that he would not follow the Queen’s policy of never giving an interview when he becomes king.

The comment was made at a dinner attended by Tony Blair’s former right-hand man, Alastair Campbell.

During the Mail + show Palace Confidential, Campbell reveals: “I was once at a dinner where Prince William was the guest and there was a Q&A. I asked if when he became king, and possibly when his father became king, they would continue the tradition of the monarch who would never give interviews.

“He said he thought that ship had sailed, which I found quite interesting.”

The Queen has always believed it would be a mistake for her to conduct a sit-down interview.

Daily Mail columnist John Humphrys once asked her during a private lunch at Buckingham Palace if she would allow him an interview.

‘I went into a big story and said,’ These are the reasons you could do that, you know? And she listened to me very patiently and then said, “No … And what’s more, Mr. Humphrys, if anyone ever did an interview like that, it certainly wouldn’t be with you.”

However, Prince Charles has given an interview to Jonathan Dimbleby, who is best remembered for his confession that he had committed adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles during his marriage to Princess Diana.

William and Kate gave only one television interview to their friend Tom Bradby the day their engagement was announced in 2010.

Of course, the Newsnight interview that William’s uncle, Prince Andrew, gave to Emily Maitlis serves as an objective lesson in how such events can go horribly wrong.

Joanna Lumley is determined that opera goers will have an absolutely fantastic time when the shows resume. The Ab Fab star offers picnic tips to spectators at Grange Park Opera, where her husband, Stephen Barlow, will conduct two productions.

The idea came to her after a chat with Wasfi Kani, who founded the opera company, now on the West Horsley Place estate in Surrey. Hard-boiled eggs are Joanna’s first recommendation.

“If you add flaky onion skins to the water while they cook, they turn yellowish brown and you can write people’s names on them in gold,” she adds.

Vegetarian Lumley’s favorite sandwiches are marmite flavored houmous and pumpkin seeds. She also suggests Medjoul dates, strawberries and, inevitably, champagne. It must be Bolly, honey?

Gosling’s pad for sale for £ 18.4 million

The beloved home of colorful National Car Parks tycoon Sir Donald Gosling is set to be demolished after it went on sale this week for a whopping £ 18.4 million.

The Leander Estate, in Hampton Wick, Surrey, is listed for sale as whole or individual properties. The estate agent describes it as ‘one of the most beautiful estates on the banks of the Thames’, with ‘excellent opportunities to develop subject to planning’.

A close friend of the Royal Family, Sir Donald, who died in 2019 at the age of 90, used to hold £ 150,000 fireworks in his yard and invite all neighbors. He named his estate and superyacht – used by Prince Charles and Camilla on their Caribbean royal tour in 2008 – after the Royal Navy warship on which he served, HMS Leander.

Motormond Chris Evans now makes more money from used car sales than from broadcasting.

The Virgin Radio presenter has just recorded a £ 1.8 million profit increase for his media company, Zimple Ltd, whose reserves have risen to £ 4.4 million according to newly released accounts.

But he’s already made nearly £ 6 million closing another company, Auto Holdings Ltd, which sold his own collection of classic cars.

Evans, 55, parted ways with his Ginger Media Group for a reported £ 225 million in 2000, personally grabbing around £ 35 million.

Gone Girl Emily’s disappearing mother … in 3 weeks

Forget the cozy knit of Nora Batty or Val Doonican – Emily Ratajkowski proves that cardies can be seductive.

Covering her face on a walk yesterday in New York, the 29-year-old Gone Girl actress showed off her remarkably toned midriff in a barely buttoned vest just over three weeks after the birth of her first child, Sylvester Apollo Bear.

Ratajkowski, who was born in London to American parents, is married to film producer Sebastian Bear-McClard.

The actress provoked many reactions during her pregnancy when she stated that she did not want to know Sylvester’s gender.

“We won’t know until our child is 18 and they will let us know,” she explained.

In most families, there is still a way to go for men to provide a fair share of the family, making it more difficult for women to commit to their careers in the same way as men in their 30s and 40s .
