Blind Item #8

Two more royals added to the bald man's team. All it took was an annual "stipend," of a little over $100K. That also brought their parents firmly to his side.

William lol?

Tricia13 said...

He’s not bald is he really?

Brayson87 said...

Yup, not all the way though.

Meredith said...

Harry's looking pretty bald these days too

kfitz said...

pretty much tricia lol

Sea Hag said...

Harry is pretty sparse, too. https://www.harpersbazaar.com/celebrity/latest/a27225969/prince-harry-kate-middleton-easter-sunday-service-2019-photos/

Brayson87 said...

Always looks great when people exile their own brother, shows a lot about their character.

Tricia13 said...

I dunno 🤷‍♀️ lol. I’m not much of a Royal watcher but I’m kinda TeamWilliam in this one...it’s a shame no matter what. Brothers are brothers man. Especially after what they had to deal with at such young ages

HushHush said...

Prince Andrew's daughters. Been begging to be put on the payroll, Andrew's been lobbying for years for this. Prince Charles has been against it as he wants to, smartly, reduce the number of BRF on the tax payers. Have a look at Saudi Arabia and their dependent 5000 princes.

J said...

Congratulations, Brits!

maybe someone should get a dna sample from Harry's coffee cup, just to make sure...

Jon said...

Added to his team to what end? How does it help William if the family is divided up?

MelRose said...

at the expense of the struggling taxpayers. I'm surprised the people still allow this theft.

Meredith said...

I've always been a royal fan, and I liked MM starting with Suits...

But now I am questioning why one would announce their pregnancy at someone else's wedding two+ weeks earlier than standard

annie31 said...

Geidt and The Yorks?

Brayson87 said...

Maybe The Firm realized that today's Brits want less regal bearing and more Kardashian drama, got to keep the viewers happy. MM was about as close to a Kardashian as they could stomach.

LooLooEasy said...

Harry's own head is starting to resemble Krusty the Clown's.

Zebra Seasoning said...

@Meredith- yeah. That was a dick move.

Nutty_Flavor said...

"Brought their parents firmly to his side"?

Andrew has hated Markle since the beginning - the old perv probably ran across her in his yachting days. He was the guy who posted a Christmas photo that creatively obscured Meghan. You don't have to do ANYTHING to get Andrew onside.

(I wrote a blog post about this in January: https://nuttyflavor88.blogspot.com/2019/01/prince-andrew-and-meghan.html)

Bea and Eugenie have shown themselves to be team players, and they've wanted to be working Royals forever.

It's the prestige they want, not the money. Eugenie married Jack Brooksbank, who is loaded. Bea was dating that property developer.

tatty said...

DOS did say end of April, beginning of May. So let’s say she is 37 weeks this week. 8 weeks on October 2. 4 weeks on September 4. Got pg sometime mid August. Eugenie was married October 12.

I would say twins, because with twins I popped out nearly immediately and people were asking if I was due any day at 5 months. I also went term for twins, which is 37 weeks. So I would think for first pregnancy she isn’t pg with twins because they would likely be here by now. Of course, I do know of the random woman who went 38 weeks first pregnancy with twins, so I suppose it’s possible.

And, of course, this assumes she hasn’t had the baby yet. 🤷🏼‍♀️ Who knows. We are on their timetable, which I’m ok with.

Nutty_Flavor said...

(Haven't seen Bea's property developer around for awhile, though, after he got roasted by the tabloids and called a cad. Too bad. I thought he was easy on the eyes, and if it's one thing the Royal Family needs, it's some genes that are easy on the eyes.)

Justme said...

I am still on side team pillow. #releasethecushion.

If they had to use surrogate they should have been honest.

If she is faking AND announced it prematurely at Eugenies wedding, she's even more of a cunt than anyone could imagine.

If you subscribe to the theory that she did the reveal to get back at Eugenie for wearing the tiara she wanted, then cunt x1000.

Regardless, the next few weeks are going to be super interesting to see how this plays out. I think she's out of time and money and there isn't even a surrogate. We will see!!!

Rosie riveter said...

Enty sure knows his crowd and the ways to get those clicks as they say
Americans haven't given two shits whats going on with the royal family since princess Diana. They still don't tbh.
All the people here who are American and pretend to Care are probably paid.

HushHush said...

Nutty, do you think Bea's itchy to get up the altar, with anyone acceptable (the developer guy apparently set off CDAN's gaydar), is because QE2 is getting on, a healthy 93, but still 93. She's the one who decides who gets titles, and on the payroll. Or it's just nature and a ticking biological clock. I'd hate to see her end up like her great aunt Margaret, marrying Lord Snowdon, a fate of many nice rich girls in her position.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Don't think so, Rosie. I'm American and not paid, and a lot of the people who comment on DM, Lipstick Alley's anti-Meg thread (now at 382 pages with 10 comments per page) and even my tiny blog seem to be American too.

BTW, did anyone see the new Harper's Bazaar article about Meg and Harry's Africa plans?

It's bylined by Omid Scobie, Meg's mouthpiece and stenographer, and it tries to make it look like the whole Africa thing was her idea.

This is my favorite paragraph:

"Let’s be clear about one thing: Any decision the couple make about their future will be made by themselves for themselves. Harry and Meghan have always wanted to reach people on a global level and that is the only thing that’s motivating them."

By themselves for themselves?

You have a job, you nitwits, and it's to represent the citizens of the UK. Your job isn't to "reach people on a global level" who don't pay your expenses. And nobody cares what's motivating you.

tatty said...

It seems to me though, that William wouldn’t want a supposed pedo on his “team”, especially having young children.

J said...

Let's have a new civil war.

Put one of them into a butt of Malmsey. Any of them, I don't care. (Although it would be interesting to see whether Meghan floats.)

Unknown said...

How old are Edward and Sophie’s kids? Maybe promising the family that the kids will get a stipend when they come of age and be allowed to become working royals brought E&S to Team Wills.

Justme said...

Meghan and her moutpieces are truly vile and only go to demonstrate her severe personality disorder and narcissism. As for Harry part of me still hopes he's the good guy in all this. Someone recently reposted some pics from the wedding and he sure doesn't look like a man head over heels in love. However I do realize those stills are cherry picked. But every pic of MeAgain she looks smug and somewhat unhinged.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@HushHush Edo gave me major Snowdon vibes too!

Bea needs money. Andy doesn't have much for her, and apparently Sir Geidt (the "bald man") isn't too generous either.

She's watched her mom go broke again and again over the two decades since the York's divorce.

Bea doesn't want that life, particularly now that Eugenie is set up pretty.

Edo has money, both family money and his own earned money. It's a decent tradeoff, if they can stand each other.

tatty said...

Unknown, E&S makes more sense.

Nutty_Flavor said...

Ed and Sophie's kids are 14 and 11. (The younger one was spotted driving a Land Rover around the Windsor Estate the other day. Watch out, don't run over Baby Sussex!)

A little early to make it worth getting them onside.

Zara and her family are very close to the Cambridges, so they'd presumably be onside without requiring a bribe.

Unknown said...

This is confusing as shit. You hint markle is behind all the bad stuff that's happened and the leaks about the Cambridges and then you hint that William is this evil man and Harry and meghan are the good ones. (no idea whats going on but hope william hasn't turned into a bad guy)

kiki71 said...

Uh, okay maybe I am a woman but DOES ANY RICH GUY NEED TO BE OR GO BALD? Don't they have meds and implants for this? Know implants are painful but aren't there hair-growing pharmaceuticals that work wonders. Going bald young ages you so much. Why do it?

gauloise said...

@Nutty do you think it is to get Anne on their side? Cause the PR machine for Zara and William's close bond has been working overtime the past few days:

https://www.eonline.com/news/1033825/inside-prince-william-and-kate-middleton-s-tight-bond-with-his-cousin-zara-tindall

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Unknown, the Bald Man isn't William. It's the Queen's powerbroker, Sir Christopher Geidt.

Look him up. He looks like Dr. Evil.

Meredith said...

Damn @Nutty ... I wasn't even following the first part correctly. Thank you! Yes, Geidt is all the way bald.

Nutty_Flavor said...

@Gauloise, that's a very good point.

Zara and Peter don't get any Royal income; they make their own money.

Check out Zara's baby carriage commercial: https://youtu.be/mIzHp7z-4kw

Do Not Lie said...

Unknown, refer to the shit storm ensuing from Meghan joining the family to draw conclusions. She is a narcissistic and disrespectful menace to whom Harry surrendered both his power and voice as if intimidation and abuse are involved.
Team Cambridge!

yepthatsme said...

@Kiki71, no there arent any drugs for hair growth which works wonders, also implants apart from being painful also carry with them a risk of neuro damage. My former boss, got 8 hair transplants and then it was successful but in the process he got minor neuro damage and now one of his eyes is shorter than the other. Now 7 yeras later, when i ran into him, his hair has started thinning again so its not easy. Also his experience put me off from ever trying out hair transplant! I will be bald but at least my brain and eyes will be a 100%!

Nutty_Flavor said...

Toupés work, too. Both Fred Astaire and Frank Sinatra wore one, and I imagine toupé technology has probably improved since their day.

A little late for William to start without looking ridiculous, however.

Unknown said...

yup it's Zara and her husband, who cheated to by the way... i think the time that william visited MI6 thought him some stuff.. curious to see where it all lands... maybe harry and meg are better off seperated form the old garde.. and do their own thing...

notapplicable said...

Wills has been pictured with Zara and Mike a lot - could be them.

Kellikopter said...

My understanding of pharmaceuticals in the hair loss/restoration industry is that they're only effective if the follicles are still living. Regarding hair loss, once the hair falls out, the follicle is dead. If you catch it early, you can treat the remaining hair and keep it from falling out. There's very little that can be done for baldness (as far as meds go), with the exception being implants and transplants.

Kellikopter said...

That being said, I agree with you. They could've caught it early and they should have, knowing the males in their family have a history of baldness. There's no excuse when you have that kind of money. Unless they just don't care.

gauloise said...

I know it's hard to believe, but some people just aren't superficial about their looks.


Humor Me said...

Definitely William for the "bald one" - as to the two royals and their parents: my guess is Beatrice and Eugenie, as Andrew has always wanted them to have "support" from the RF. And they do work on behalf of the queen.
Edward / Sophie have been making their way employment-wise with his production company. Could be them, as their two children are pre-teens. A stipend would be nice for them for future service to the RF/ William.

Ann said...

With the Easter church walk I'm going with the Tinsdales which would pull in Princess Ann/hubby as well. Of course Prince William for the bald man.

Brayson87 said...

Jeezus, it's baldness not leprosy, don't be so basic 😅

I think being a prince/future king trumps hair style. ;)

Brayson87 said...

Rumor is that Geidt was brought in to help manage Meghan, but I don't know. He looks less like a minder and more like one of her past customers.

Lauren said...

I agree and Kate and Will went to see Zara at the horse show and we’re seen with all the kids playing about.

OKay said...

@Rosie Clearly you're not a fan, but most of us are actually eating this stuff up.

Guesser said...

The fact that Andrew hates Meghan makes me like her a little. But still believe in the pillow baby.

Aquagirl said...

@Brayson: William was doing his job as future King by pushing his brother aside. He had to, as MM has been causing too much damage to the BRF. William tried to convince Harry not to marry her, or at least slow it down, but Harry wouldn’t listen, so he’s made his own bed. I’m
also pretty certain that William wants her kept away from his wife and children. She is a narcissistic sociopath who is very jealous of Kate. The woman is dangerous. That’s why they were sent to Frogmore, and now, hopefully Africa.

Geidt is a very tough, smart man. He is handling the Meghan situation, which he was brought back to do. I also think he is looking towards the future of the BRF when HM & PP are no longer here. He needs to endure that there are enough working royals, as many who currently make appearances are getting older. I believe that the York girls were already given an allowance by William awhile ago, so this blind probably has to do with Zara.

Gen-z99 said...

Yeah but why though its well documented on this site and other sites how evil the royals are.why do people still give a damn about them after all those atrocities?

Brayson87 said...

@Aqua, It's strange that greatest threat to the Firm is some actress they can't manage. One would have thought they were used to dealing with narcissistic sociopaths at that level.

Jennacheryl said...

Ummm yeah MM and Harry will settle for a paycheck of 100k.
Not them.

hhstarr said...

I like baldness. It shows strength in your own self, and wisdom. Like I look the same as when I was 18... jeez. I would hate it if my husband tried to hide his baldness. Look at Travolta and Ted Danson, their pieces were and are laughable. I liked Meghan at first, but see how much harm she does. The queen and William need to protect the family. I get that. The royal history is full of brothers getting in the way of the king. Who knows what a person is really like, but I love Kate's smile. She looks genuinely warm and kind.

Vita said...

The bald man got more on his team-- so, while Geidt is truly bald, I think it's the new distinguishing descriptor for Will. And, I truly don't think he gives a rip about his hairline when it's figuratively and, at some point literally, covered by a crown. Personally, only issue with balding is when there are distracting comb-overs or ill-matched toupees, otherwise, go with what you've got.

Kind of disappointed that Will is needing to bribe anyone to his team. At first, I was thinking that must mean Meg isn't that bad. Then, I realized, as family, they've probably loved Will and Harry dearly all of these years and were trying to remain uncommitted, hoping the riff would clear or Meg would just get kicked out by Harry himself.

Brayson-- I love your comment about the royals being used to dealing with narcissistic sociopaths, but they're flummoxed by this one actress. All of their best tricks of side eyes and tongue clicks and press leaks rolled right off this duck's back! Shunning and forced moves haven't made her sweat. Now, she's already got the spin out that international exile is all her idea and gift to humanity. She's like Mr Magoo, obliviously following her own wants and agendas, SEEMINGLY clueless to the wreckage around her.

Gen-z99 said...

Why?I'll take gold digging hustler ex-yacht girl over a pedophile any day anytime. the royals are disgusting.Meghan is sweet I love her.

BigFanUSA said...

Wait, I just realized that H&M spent $$$$$ on their froggy cottage and they're going to exile for several years?????

Unknown said...

MM did say in an interview she was a "brash American", no one took notice and it's coming back to haunt them. Bald = Lord Geidt, 2 Royals = Yorks. Bea has been quite prominent with HM recently

C’est Vrai said...

I think it’s Zara Tindall & her Hubby Mike. There is a reason that they were walking directly behind Wills & Kate separating them from Harry. The twins wouldn’t make since to me, they already can not stand MM and wouldn’t need the bankroll and the spotlight. Zara has always been the thirsty forgotten “Royal” despite her equestrian career, no one even knows who she is. Plus the twins would ask for way more than a measly 100k.

emeraldcity said...

BS...Enty. Someone from team Meg is feeding you bilge.

Apart from the fact that William doesn't have that kind of money to just splash out it would be half his income, he is as tight as a clam, he pays for nothing. Charles would have to be the one forking out.

That aside William needs no one to be on his side, the palace machinery will always work in his favour no matter what and the family knows they have to keep in his good books not Harry's, they also know Meghan will be a bolter so she is tolerated by the extended family for Harry's sake that's all. Harry is also beginning to wear out his good will with many of them because of his tone deaf stupidity in virtually setting himself and wife up as a separate entity, 'Brand Sussex' (snort).

William is also primary heir to Charles and will inherit the stipend of the Duchy of Cornwall when Charles takes the throne (in 10 years tops) the income from that alone was close to $29 million (US) last year. If Charles should go first then William still gets the POW and Cornwall estates and will certainly not look kindly ony one one he felt he needed to blackmail to take his side. The odds on Meghan lasting are very slim and they all know it. William is a grudge holder so they will tread very carefully with him.

Several of the own their own homes but others are 'Grace and Favour' such as the Essex's country home , and all the apartments they occupy at Buck Palace or Kensington such as Eugenies Ivy Cottage or Prince/Princess Michael's apartments,The Gloucester's London digs and all their offices etc. Charles or William could turf them out at a moments notice after the Queen goes, do you really think they would be so stupid as to blackmail William for their irrelevant support.

Celebrity Gossip is one thing Enty, when you can make up as much c*ap as you like but too many people now exactly how the RF family works.

Ann said...

Does anyone in England have eyes on Prince Harry's location? It's being reported on Twitter that he's still at Kensington Palace (without Meghan).

Kansas City looking to build their roster?

Exactly, @emeraldcity. Enty is being played by MM's distraction campaign of divide and conquer. He did a blind about her moving to LA a few days ago, which was part of the same. Duchess Difficult has faked a pregnancy, wants to distract from the fact that 9 months are up with no baby. She is swirling the drain, and no one needs to be paid off by William or LG for that to happen all on its own. She is hoping to lay low in Africa or something until everything blows over and people blame William. Please, she is just your average con artist, it is all smoke and mirrors. More popcorn, please.

ron hobbs said...

I may not be Royal, I may not be famous, I may not be wealthy and I may not be young, but I have a full head of hair that guys half my age envy. And women like. My only revenge.

Nutty_Flavor said...

New embarrassing photo of Meg turned up today on Instagram - one in which she is clearly delivering a BJ to a Caucasian gentleman.

People in the UK and US probably won't care much (who hasn't given a BJ in his or her time, and the photo appears to be consensual) but Africa is a very conservative place. A porn star princess will not be appreciated there.

Geidt probably has access to the photos, maybe because they were scrubbed when Meg first came on the scene, but what would his motive be in releasing them?

Is someone else trying to stop Meg's Africa adventure before it begins?


As of 9:55 am London time, the photo is still up at
https://www.instagram.com/yachtgrl/

LeahBryar said...

I Read this differently. I thought it would be Zara and Mike. They have recently made a bigger show of being with Kate and William and also there was the walk together on Easter Sunday, where PH was left to walk with Peter and Autumn.

100k would be enough for Zara. She is popular, more media savvy and having her Mike and Mia hanging out with PW and kids always get positive media.

Nutty_Flavor said...

But if it's Zara, what's the line about getting "her parents" on board?

Anne is no-nonsense and she doesn't need money at this point in her life. Mark Philips has long been out of the picture, and Tim Laurence isn't really a parent and is only there for ceremonial occasions anyway.

emeraldcity said...

@LeahBryar......Enty would like people to think that the minor Royals are paupers, they are not. Virtually all of them had trust funds set up for them as children.

Zara is worth at least $10millon maybe twice that and has a declared income of $1.5 to $2million US a year from endorsements, horse training, sponsorships and private enterprises. Mike Tindall owns several businesses that bring in around 200k/300k a year plus income from endorsements and consulting. He has shares in an online gaming company and Zara and Mike have a considerable commercial property portfolio.
They actually earn more than William and Harry combined each year, because having no title and not taking an income from the Crown estates they can make their own money unfettered by protocol.


Enty would also have us believe that Beatrice yachts to make ends meet. Both Beatrice and Eugenie are worth around $5million plus each, from trust funds set up for them by the Queen Mother. It is not well known but at one point Sarah was dipping into their Trust Fund, she was threatened with severe legal consequences, Andrew replaced the money and the running of their trusts was put into private hands after that. Eugenie's husband is comfortably wealthy as well via his family and his own efforts.

Edward is worth around $20million, Andrew is reputed to have over $50million probably from his dodgy billionaire connections. Charles has at least $400million probably more like a $1billion. Even Philip has his own fortune at around $30million. So non of them are in need of money.

So that is why I called BS on this blind...it is a very clumsy plant.

Beth said...

Not Zara. She and Will were very close growing up, it's well documented in photos through the years. Zara was close to Harry too, but there are photos from his wedding with Zara smirking and rolling her eyes. Zara was the most obvious in her disdain at the wedding.
I'd wager Charles is the only one who sort of likes Meghan because she probably strokes his ego and flirts with him.

Ann said...

@emerald city. You 100% correct as usual.
And @Beth it just surprised me with the marked division of the Easter walk. Harry so separated from the others.

How's this for a PR spin: https://pagesix.com/2019/04/20/palace-reportedly-considering-sending-rock-star-royals-harry-and-meghan-to-africa/

Lulu Filona said...

Thank you for the link to 'that' photo. It looks like a still from the rumored porn tape. Maybe a pre-release tease of the contents? News reports were that she was shown on her knees.

Ann said...

Rumors are the porn tape has been sold. So we should start seeing more leaks from that tape. I really do think I know who the guy will be when it all comes out.

Darn you @Nutty for beating me with the photo news. I've been following the story on Twitter. Last night someone sent Wallis Is Not Pregnant a copy of that photo. There are a few people on Twitter (besides Torontopaper1) who appear to have inner sources to the situation. Drip Drop is a Moroccan dude that keeps saying Meghan will be seeing the inside of a prison cell for more than the fake baby crime. Also that Torontopaper1 is not one person but several BRF members who use that account. Says they use Torontopaper1 to communicate/taunt Meghan. DD also says Enty's blind about palace staff house hunting in LA is nothing more than Meghan's PR team feeding false info. Actually says to ignore all published stories until Meghan gives birth because it's all garbage she or her PR staff is putting out. If I have to be sick and on activity restrictions this is certainly a great way to pass the time.

Cinnamon009 said...

Bald man would be Geidt. Its written to me as if the bald one is not Royal himself. The York girls would definitely be bought for £100k per annum. They do not receive an income from the crown and yet are party girls constantly throwing money around at fancy parties and staying in exclusive places. Their Dad Prince Andrew is grubby. He would do anything for cash. Don't believe this is Zara. She doesn't have the high end lifestyle so is less likely to trade her values for cash.

belocinna said...

Funny, my first thought was Prince Albert of Monaco.
