Victory for Kate Middleton while Tatler caves the bible of society

Tatler has deleted huge parts of his online profile of the Duchess of Cambridge after the society’s bible was accused of publishing a “string of lies.”

The magazine has collapsed, almost a quarter of the way down – notably ‘cruel’ and ‘snobbish’ barbs targeting Kate’s mother Carole Middleton and sister Pippa.

It comes after Kensington Palace ordered its lawyers to demand that the “ inaccuracies and false statements ” be removed.

The July / August issue of Tatler, published in May under the cover article ‘Catherine the Great,’ detailed allegations, now deleted, that Kate, 38, felt ‘exhausted and trapped’ after Harry and Meghan’s decision to leave Stepping back from royal life was ‘dangerously thin’ like Princess Diana and had even consulted psychics with William.

But The Mail on Sunday understands that it was the Middleton family’s criticism that caused the most uproar.

At first, Tatler refused to remove anything from the Internet, despite the palace’s wrath, with editor Richard Dennen insisting he was “ behind the coverage of Anna Pasternak and her sources. ” However, the Cambridges’ lawyers pointed out that Kensington Palace had not been given the opportunity to comment on the specific content of Ms. Pasternak’s article, which was much disputed.

Ultimately, both sides agreed that pieces would be cut from the online profile, which was done this week – four months after its publication.

The deleted paragraphs contained claims that William was obsessed with his mother-in-law, that Carole, 65, is “a terrible snob” and that Pippa, 37, is “too regal and harsh.”

The only reference Tatler made to the climb down is a sentence at the end of the piece stating that it has been edited.

One of the claims that most angered the Cambridges was the comparison of ‘dangerously skinny’ Kate to Princess Diana, who struggled with eating disorders all her life.

At the time, a royal source said: ‘That is such an extremely cruel and wounding barb. It’s disgusting. It’s sexist and shameful to women at worst.

‘The play is full of lies. There is no truth in their claim that the Duchess feels overwhelmed with work, nor that the Duke is obsessed with Carole Middleton. It’s ridiculous.

‘It’s all class snobbery. Tatler may think it is immune to action as read by the Royals and on every coffee table in every smart home. But it does not matter. It’s ironic that the Royals’ favorite magazine is now being smashed by them.

“The Duchess is a shy woman by nature who tries her best.”

A source close to the publisher of Condé Nast magazine said: “Tatler has a long-standing relationship with the royal family and wanted to end this amicably.” A Kensington Palace spokesman declined to comment.

Paragraphs – and entire sections – deleted by Tatler

WHAT THEY DO: But privately, another friend said, “Kate is furious about the increased workload [caused by Harry and Meghan quitting]. Of course she smiles and dresses appropriately, but she doesn’t want this. She feels exhausted and trapped. She works as hard as a top CEO, who has to be driven away all the time, without the benefits of boundaries and lots of vacations.

NOW: Deleted paragraph

WHAT THEY DO: It’s been a fast climb for a girl born to an upper middle class family in Reading. She and her siblings attended Marlborough, thanks to her parents’ thriving mail order businesses, and while there she had a poster of Prince William on her wall.

NOW: The reference to Prince William’s poster, which Kate has previously denied, has been erased

A source close to the publisher of Condé Nast magazine said: `` Tatler has a longstanding relationship with the royal family and wanted to end this amicably ''

WHAT THEY DO: Another great-grandmother says, “I heard Prince William is obsessed with Carole. She’s the mummy he always wanted. Still, it’s Carole, with what some call her Hyacinth Bucket aspirations of greatness, who is said to be supporting people’s backs in a way that Kate doesn’t. Some people have apparently found her demanding. A skilled craftsman who worked at Anmer Hall, William and Kate’s mansion, and is used to a selection of prestigious and potentially troublesome clients, said he found Carole to be “ the hardest client ” he’d ever worked with: “ She was extremely demanding, picky and doubted everything. ‘Carole has left her mark on Anmer in terms of interior design. Far from being a typical Aristo abode, with threadbare carpets and dog hair all over, like Windsor and Balmoral, for example, it is, according to one visitor, ‘like a shiny five-star hotel, with padded pillows and candles lit’. Another adds, “It’s all of Buckinghamshire.”

NOW: Entire section deleted

WHAT THEY DO: While Kate has praised her immediate family and happy childhood, there’s no denying that Carole is a formidable matriarch. “Carole is a terrible snob,” claims a friend of Donna Air, ex-girlfriend of Kate’s brother James. “Donna is a really sweet girl, but Carole has grown up quite a bit.” She adds, “Carole is the brain between those girls.”

NOW: Deleted paragraph

WHAT THEY DO: Kate and her sister, Pippa, remain the closest confidants, presumably because it feels safe. “Pippa now also speaks like the queen and is absolutely paranoid about the paparazzi,” says one of her circle. She refers to her sister as Catherine or ‘the Duchess’ in public, which feels too regal and harsh. Pippa is now a bit lost and struggling to find her place. She is always in the shadows as someone’s sister or someone’s wife. But they are all completely loyal to each other. The Middleton family will always close the ranks. None of them can really believe they hit the jackpot, so there is an unspoken bond between Kate, Pippa and Carole. Kind of like ‘We have to make it happen at all costs’. ‘

One of the allegations that most angered the Cambridges was the comparison of `` dangerously skinny '' Kate to Princess Diana, who famously struggled with eating disorders throughout her life.

WHAT THEY DO: Then there’s her ‘Turnip Toff’ crowd, the Norfolk Sloanes, including Sophie Carter and Robert Snuggs, who live near Anmer Hall. And the Cambridges’ glamorous neighbors in Houghton Hall, Rose Hanbury and her husband, the Marquis of Cholmondeley.

NOW: Deleted paragraph

WHAT THEY DO: Outwardly, it seems that after years of research into public pressure, Kate has grown dangerously thin, as some have pointed out – Princess Diana. You could say that Kate is naturally slim and indeed, like Pippa, a powerful athlete. Or maybe her size is down to the stress of being a multitasking mother of three – one that makes up for the added worries of defending a seemingly beleaguered royal family. “William is absolutely glowing about Megxit,” confides a courtier. Every time the Sussexes issue a statement, it hits everyone like a new bomb. The Cambridges, like everyone else, continue to falter. Everyone is very concerned about the consequences for the queen. ‘

NOW: Deleted paragraph

WHAT THEY DO: [Kate] is a royal ballast, William’s most trusted adviser, and one who puts duty above all else. Following the spirit of Diana, William and Kate consult endearing psychics. One medium who went to Kensington Palace to ‘channel’ on their behalf found William to be ‘forthright and lovely’. Kate, while meticulously polite, was more ‘closed’. Maybe she just made the motions to appease her husband?

NOW: [Kate] is a royal ballast, William’s most trusted adviser, and one who puts duty above all else. Whatever the truth, as the woman behind the man who will rule from what William Churchill called “the greatest throne in history,” Kate has emerged as the ultimate power player.
