Poorly Kate says “fuck that” to a Royal Nanny. Meanwhile, mystery still shrouds Jacintha Saldanha Suicide.

The Daily Mail. Foreword by Chris Spivey.

 

Spivs Comment

Here we go again, three more stories from the MSM  designed to make us marvel, pity and sympathise with the Royal parasites. All three stories are bollocks in my opinion.

The third story deals with the suicide of the nurse who took the prank call from the two Australian DJ’s. I’m afraid that I don’t buy it. Prank shows have been around from the 1960′s; Candid Camera, Game for a laugh, Noel Edmond’s Saturday show, Beadles about and Trigger Happy TV, to name but a few.

Who remembers the ‘alien meeting’ prank on Beadles about? For those who don’t, I believe that I’m correct in saying that it made the front pages of the newspapers. Jeremy Beadle had  a gullible woman believing that she was speaking to an alien from outer space… Yet she didn’t commit suicide.


There is in fact no evidence to confirm that  Jacintha Saldanha killed herself as a direct result of the prank call. Certainly, she showed great naivety in putting the call through to Kate’s room. She should have known that Bizzy Lizzy would never personally make the call. An Equerry would have rung first. Moreover, the other nurse who took the call from Jacintha and gave out some details of Kate’s condition should feel far more ashamed and foolish… Yet she hasn’t topped herself either.

The Hospital have confirmed that neither nurse had been reprimanded or faced any disciplinary action. Therefore, I can only conclude that Jacintha was either, very overly sensitive, in which case she was in the wrong profession. Or, She was on the verge of topping herself anyway. Or, someone had her bumped off.

The 3rd reason that I put forward is not as far fetched as it sounds. What kind of Mother with 2 young children kills herself 3 weeks before Christmas, just for being gullible?

Then ask yourself who had anything to gain by her suicide? The Royal family certainly did. At a time when their popularity is at an all time low, taking the piss out of them isn’t going to help. So, in order to put anyone else off taking the piss, what better way than having the victim commit suicide?  To re-enforce that ‘no piss taking’ point, the old bill are now involved as reported by the BBC:

“Scotland Yard has been in touch with Australian police over the death of a nurse from the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for morning sickness”.

Are they not busy enough whitewashing Operation Yewtree? Mind you, I would like to see the arrest of the two DJ’s. Talk about Comedy; “You are under arrest for being funny”.

Jacintha’s death is a tragedy. Unfortunately, if you think that the two Australian DJ’s are to blame, then I’m afraid that you are just as gullible as the nurse.

The Second story is just about Kate’s morning sickness causing Big Willie to cancel his appearance at some pomp and ceremony bash… A bollocks story designed to get us all feeling sorry for her. My daughter is pregnant and seemingly throws up every 5 minutes, yet she wouldn’t dream of going to hospital. Pregnant women do get Morning Sickness, and like my daughter, Afternoon, Evening and Night time sickness too.So, Instead of feeling sorry for her, to me, it just demonstrates how fucking pampered and out of touch with reality the inbred family are.

The first story is designed to make us marvel at the parasites. Wow, Big Willie and Gold digger smith are not having a Nanny for their baby… Rather like the other 99.9% of the population.

Course, I wouldn’t take too much notice of that claim. The following is from my article Monsters Inc:

Fact: Kate and William’s  wedding  has been revealed to have impacted negatively on both UK tourism and economic growth. Furthermore, their earlier PR failed them after announcing in late 2010 that they would have no servants… then in June 2012 they were caught, errr… Advertising for servants, Doh!

The article does however try and convince the reader that the couple will be true to their word, while at the same time somewhat contradicts the above fact taken from Monsters Inc:

“The couple do not employ any staff at their home in North Wales, where the Duke serves as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot at Anglesey, apart from a cleaner who visits weekly.”

So, reading that, they do employ staff in the form of a cleaner although people not paying too much attention would take the Daily Mails claim as being that; the cleaner is all they employ. However, what we actually have here is proof of how the MSM are ordered to portray the ponsing freaks in a good light.

In doing so the Daily Mail contradicts itself being as a couple of days ago they ran a story about how Big Willie may have to be away from Gold digger Smith for a couple of months since he is due back on RAF duty. If the couple have a residence in North Wales, why couldn’t Kate go with him?

The answer is that they don’t have a residence as such. He has a cottage (more than his colleagues get) which the spoilt brat is too fucking lazy to clean himself. The following is from the Pro-Royal family website www.britishroyals.info:

This location can mean either one of two things: (1) an extended long distance relationship with Kate for the next 3 years; or as Daily Mail suspects, (2) spending the first few years of married life with Kate in family quarters close to his base, and away from London. Which will it be? We’ll just have to “wait and see”…

William has in recent months been living in a secluded cottage in RAF Valley, where Kate could visit privately. He’s likely to keep this residence for the rest of his posting.

What the paper also neglects to mention is, that while Big Willie and Gold digger Smith may only employ the one slave to clean their tiny cottage, they do actually employ a full staff at their Kensington Palace home. 

Mind you it is interesting that Big Willies Nanny, Tiggy Legge Bourke gets a mention in the article. In fact, she is mentioned in very favourable terms:

“Tom, William’s godson, is the youngest son of Alexandra Shân ‘Tiggy’ Pettifer, known as Tiggy Legge-Bourke, who was hired as a nanny to Harry and William after Charles and Diana announced their separation. Tiggy helped comfort the princes after their mother’s death in 1997. She was so close to the boys after their parents’ divorce that she, memorably, once described them as ‘my babies’.”

Once again however, the propaganda rag neglects to mention that Prince Bigears was shagging Piggy Tiggy, while still married to Little Willies Mother, Diana and shagging Camilla Horseface. The rag also neglects to mention that Piggy Tiggy had an abortion after Jug Ears shot his load up her. 

Hmmm, perhaps the paper is telling the truth after all and the couple are not going to employ a nanny. Maybe Gold digger Smith has forbidden it in case Big Willie is a chip off the old block. We shall see, won’t we?

Until the next time, 

Much love,

No nanny for hands-on parents William and Kate: Royal couple plan to break with tradition by not employing full-time help

Nannies have played an important role in the Royal household for generations.

Prince William was so attached to his nanny Olga Powell, who was at his side throughout his childhood, that he cancelled four high-profile engagements to be at her funeral earlier this year.

But the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge plan to break with royal tradition by not employing a full-time nanny.

The couple are determined to be ‘hands-on parents’ and Kate is planning to look after her child without the help of someone 24 hours a day.

Despite growing up with a full-time nanny, William and his wife Kate are not to employ full-time help

 

Kate and Wills may employ a part-time nanny who will fulfill the role as a ‘babysitter’ by looking after their baby when they have to attend events.

But Kate’s parents Carole and Michael Middleton will also be there to lend a hand as much as possible.

One of the couple’s friends said: ‘Catherine and William are determined to be hands-on parents.’

 

‘Her parents are very excited about the baby and will help out as much as possible.’

‘They will, probably, use a part-time nanny to help them out when they have to attend events and don’t have a babysitter, but they don’t want a full-time nanny.’

Their decision not to employ a full-time nanny will be a major break with royal tradition.

But it is not first time the royal couple have decided to forgo the services of full-time help.

The couple do not employ any staff at their home in North Wales, where the Duke serves as a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot at Anglesey, apart from a cleaner who visits weekly.

Kate has spoken of how she enjoys doing the cooking and household chores. 

In contrast, Kate Middleton was cared for by her mother Carole, pictured together in 1982, and did not have a full-time nannyIn contrast, Kate Middleton was cared for by her mother Carole, pictured together in 1982, and did not have a full-time nanny

And at university William and his housemates took it in turns to do the cooking and shared household chores – including shopping for food.

The Duke of Cambridge’s nannies played such an important role in his life that the son of one of them, Tom Pettifer, was a page boy at the royal wedding.

Tom, William’s godson, is the youngest son of Alexandra Shân ‘Tiggy’ Pettifer, known as Tiggy Legge-Bourke, who was hired as a nanny to Harry and William after Charles and Diana announced their separation.

Tiggy helped comfort the princes after their mother’s death in 1997. She was so close to the boys after their parents’ divorce that she, memorably, once described them as ‘my babies’.

She retired from the Prince of Wales’s service when she married in October 1999.

In October, William attended the private funeral of his former nanny Olga Powell, cancelling four high-profile engagements in the north east, which his wife had to attend alone.

Mrs Powell was at his side through both childhood and the most important days in his adult life.

The loving, but strict nanny, was widely credited for having a massive impact on the lives of both Prince William and Harry as they were growing up.

Mrs Powell, who was widowed after just six years of marriage when she was 52, came to work for Princess Diana when Prince William was just six months old.

Although very loving, she was renowned for not taking any nonsense from the young boys, and famously would give them a clip around the ear if they were ever naughty.

Another nanny, Barbara Barnes, was sacked by Diana when William was four because she envied their strong bond.

In world’s apart, Kate Middleton was brought up by her mother, Carole, a former air stewardess who spent her early years in a council flat in Southall, an unfashionable London suburb.

The woman considered to be most influential in the Prince of Wales’s life was his beloved nanny Mabel Anderson, employed by the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to care for their four children.

She had such a special place in the hearts of the Royal family that she was called upon to represent the Duke of York at a funeral at the Chapel Royal, in St James’s Palace, earlier this year.

Mabel’s 80th birthday party was arranged by Charles to take place at the royal residence, Clarence House.

When she retired, Charles secured her a lifelong grace-and-favour home in a wing of Frogmore House, Windsor Great Park, and personally supervised its re-decoration using his own designer.

Mabel, who was once described by the Prince of Wales as ‘a haven of security, the great haven’, was said to be a great friend of the Queen’s.

The Queen met Mabel, a policeman’s daughter from Elgin, Scotland, in 1949 after she replied to an advertisement, not knowing it was from the royal household.

It was to be an assistant nanny to help the then Princess Elizabeth who was pregnant with Charles.

Despite her lack of formal training, Mabel, at 22, was chosen by the future Queen because Her Majesty liked her quiet, unassuming manner.

It was Mabel who put the children to bed, told them stories, patched up their cuts and bruises and hit upon the idea of teaching the royal corgis hide and seek with Princess Anne so that she wouldn’t miss Charles when he started school.

She even sent Charles bottles of Vosene shampoo for his dandruff at boarding school.

Each Christmas, Prince Charles sends a chauffeur-driven car to take Mrs Anderson to Sandringham, where she is treated like a cherished member of the family rather than an employee.

A St James’s Palace spokesman said: ‘It is too early to say whether the Duke and Duchess will employ a nanny.’

The news comes as it was revealed by the Mail on Sunday the couple are considering skipping Christmas at Sandringham and may instead spend December 25 with Kate’s parents Carole and Michael.

‘It is being discussed but has not yet been decided,’ said a source.

‘Carole is keen for Kate to spend Christmas with the family. It will be their last Christmas at the family home before the Middletons move house.

‘At home Kate will be able to relax and put her feet up. Christmas at Sandringham can be very busy and stressful with everyone arriving. There is always lots going on, big dinners and lots of outfit changes to contend with.’

The family have reportedly bought a £4.7 million, seven-bedroom mansion.

 

Duke of Cambridge pulls out of military event tonight after pregnant Kate suffers another bout of morning sickness

The Duke of Cambridge has pulled out of attending the British Military Tournament tonight so he can spend time with the Duchess, who is recuperating after spending three nights in hospital.

The royal couple had both originally been due to attend tonight’s event but all of Kate’s forthcoming public engagements were cancelled after she received treatment for severe morning sickness.

It comes after Prince William, 30, joked at an event yesterday evening that morning sickness should be renamed as Kate suffered it all day and night.

It now appears unlikely that the Duchess will attend the premiere of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey film in the West End on Wednesday, and may not make another public appearance for several weeks.

A St James’s Palace spokesman said: ‘The Duke of Cambridge will no longer attend the British Military Tournament at Earl’s Court this evening, but will spend Sunday privately with the Duchess instead.

‘It is well known that hyperemesis gravidarum often recurs and, until further notice, to allow the Duchess a degree of privacy during her pregnancy, we do not intend to offer regular condition checks or advise of routine developments associated with it.’

 

The cancellation of Prince William’s attendance at the event, billed as ‘the largest display of military theatre in the world’, comes after he last night attended a charity event.

He went solo for the first time since the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, also 30, was discharged from hospital.

He attended a glittering charity tennis gala, the Winter Whites Gala, held in aid of homeless charity Centrepoint, at the Royal Albert Hall in London.

He was due to be accompanied by the Duchess, but she is resting after suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute – and potentially dangerous – form of morning sickness.

The Duke, who is patron of Centrepoint, was congratulated by many on the news that a baby is on the way.

Former Centrepoint chairman Michael O’Higgins said: ‘He said they shouldn’t call it morning sickness as it’s a day and all night sickness.

‘All I’ve seen of him is his amazing ability to relate to people and I think the care he’s shown for his wife this week says a lot.’

Prince William, looking smart in black tie, joined tennis greats John McEnroe, Björn Borg and Boris Becker as well as celebrities including Sam Branson and Sadie Frost at the event.

The Royal Albert Hall was turned into a winter wonderland.

Inside, guests were greeted by actors dressed in costumes with a Dr Zhivago theme.

The Duke said it was a ‘great pleasure’ to be at the charity event as he later gave a speech.

He told guests that some of the most inspiring moments of his life had been with the young people of Centrepoint.

Referring to the night he spent on the streets in 2009 to experience what it is like sleeping rough, he said: ‘Of course, this was just one night.

‘I was cold but safe, and I knew I had a home waiting for me.

‘Many others have no such luck. The cold streets are the only reality they know.

‘And yet so often their spirit shines through.

‘What these unfortunate men, women and young people could achieve given the right opportunities is limitless. I really believe that.’

He said that afterwards, he and Centrepoint chief executive Seyi Obakin had decided to set a goal to eradicate homelessness in the next 10 years.

He added: ‘We are now several years into that decade and the problem remains as acute as ever. Centrepoint hasn’t given up on that ideal.

‘These deserving young people haven’t given up.’

Former British number one Tim Henman won a match against Croatian Goran Ivanisevic at the gala.

Kate’s brother James Middleton also watched the game in a separate box from William.

The event ended with William presenting the Centrepoint Great Britain Youth Inspiration Award to Novak Djokovic.

The world number one, who is a Unicef ambassador, was recognised for his humanitarian work to raise awareness of the importance of early childhood education in Serbia.

Tim said: ‘William seemed in good spirits. I just congratulated him on the impending birth and obviously said I hoped she was feeling better.’

The Duke laughed in disbelief as he spoke to some guests who had travelled all the way from the U.S. to attend the event.

Dr Natalie Monticciolo, from Tampa, Florida, was with other charity workers from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

She said: ‘He joked ‘which one of you has come the furthest? It was magical to meet him. He thanked us for coming. We congratulated him (on Kate’s pregnancy) and he said thank you.’

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge delighted the world this week when they announced that Kate was pregnant.

The couple were forced to announce the eagerly-awaited news after Kate was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital in London on Monday after she fell ill at her parents’ house in Bucklebury, Berkshire.

She was put on a drip and spent three nights in hospital.

Kate returned to Nottingham Cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace and cancelled upcoming engagements to rest.

Only three days before her death, the 46-year-old nurse had transferred a hoax call from two Australian DJs who obtained intimate details about the Duchess of Cambridge while she was staying at the hospital.

Pictured: Proud family photo showing tragic hoax nurse with her beloved husband

The tragic nurse who apparently killed herself after being hoaxed by a pair of Australian DJs is pictured here alongside her beloved husband.

Jacintha Saldanha, a 46-year-old mother of two, was found dead on Friday morning in nurses’ accommodation at the London hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge had been treated for acute morning sickness.

Yesterday her husband Ben Barboza, 49, an NHS accountant, said: ‘I am devastated with the tragic loss of my beloved wife Jacintha in tragic circumstances.’

Today, flowers and tributes were left outside the hospital nurses’ quarters, where Mrs Saldanha was discovered.

And in a poignant message posted on Facebook, the couple’s 14-year-old daughter Lisha said of her mother: ‘I miss you, I loveeee you.’

Mrs Saldanha’s sister-in-law Celin D’Souza added: ‘I will really miss her a lot. She was good-natured. I cannot forget her, she was so good.’

Three days before her death, Mrs Saldanha was manning the hospital switchboard when she took a call from two Australian radio presenters – Mel Greig and Michael Christian – impersonating the Queen and Prince Charles.

They were transferred to the Duchess’s ward and broadcast confidential information given to them by a second nurse. Although she wasn’t blamed in any way for what happened, friends said Mrs Saldanha ‘took it very badly’.

Described as popular, quiet and ‘profoundly caring’, she is said to have made clear to her family the depth of her anxiety when the prank was broadcast.

Others have described her as feeling lonely and confused, though the hospital said it supported her and stressed she did not face any disciplinary action.

Mrs Saldanha’s husband raised the alarm after failing to reach her by phone on Friday. Friends said the speed with which he did so reflected his concern for her wellbeing.

Last night the chairman of the King Edward VII Hospital in Marylebone, wrote to the owners of the radio station, 2Day FM, condemning the ‘humiliation of two dedicated and caring nurses’.

Mother-in-law Carmine Barboza, 69, said: ‘We just cannot believe what has happened’

Lord Glenarthur, chairman of the hospital, called the decision to broadcast the prank ‘truly appalling’ and said the consequence of the presenters’ actions was ‘tragic beyond words’.

Caught in an international backlash, Greig and Christian were yesterday in hiding, where they were said to be receiving medical assistance amid growing fears for their ‘physical and emotional wellbeing’.

While it is not thought the presenters broke any laws, they are expected to be interviewed by police. Scotland Yard is preparing a report for Mrs Saldanha’s inquest and requires statements from them.

Yesterday the dead nurse’s family were being comforted by relatives and friends at their terrace home in Southmead, Bristol.

A friend who answered the door said Mr Barboza, Lisha and the couple’s 16-year-old son Junal were ‘very, very shocked and unhappy’.

Mrs Saldanha, from Valencia in south-west India, married Mr Barboza, from the nearby village of Shirva, in 1993. They moved to Bristol nine years ago. When she was working in London she lived in nurse’s quarters behind the hospital, returning to the family home on her days off.

Mr Barboza’s mother Carmine, 69, said the family returned to India to visit her every two years. She said neither her son nor daughter-in-law had told her about the hoax call.

‘Everything seemed normal,’ she said. ‘But then we got a call last night from Benedict informing us that Jacintha had died. He was crying and couldn’t speak much.

‘We don’t know whether we’ll be able to bring her body back to India but we desperately hope so.

‘We spoke to Benedict again this morning and he said he hasn’t been allowed to see her body yet because of legal formalities and she’ll not be handed over before Monday.

‘Jacintha was a very caring woman. We just cannot believe what has happened.’

Yesterday a wooden cross with a British flag was left outside the King Edward VII Hospital, while flowers were placed outside the nearby nurses’ block.

A note read: ‘Dear Jacintha, Our thoughts are with you and your family. From all your fellow nurses, we bless your soul. RIP xxx’

Neeraj Singh, a former colleague who worked with Mrs Saldanha  at Southmeads Hospital in Bristol, said news of her death was ‘devastating’.

Mrs Saldanha once described herself as ‘a very nervous person’ in a testimonial penned for her driving teacher’s website.

Instructor Jeff Sellick recalled her as quiet and sometimes needing a confidence boost, adding that he felt the prank call would have ‘played very heavy on her mind’.

DJs Greig and Christian have told station bosses they want to ‘express their remorse publicly.’

Friends say ex-model Mel Greig is ‘close to a breakdown’ and undergoing ‘intensive psychological counselling’ along with colleague Michael Christian – and both are being ‘wrapped in cotton wool’.

Today their bosses at Southern Cross Austereo, 2Day FM’s parent company, said the tragedy of a nurse who took the call being found dead was ‘unforeseeable and very regrettable’, insisting ‘immediate action’ was being taken.

The duo will provide statements to local detectives after a request from the Met to their New South Wales counterparts – and the company said they have ‘expressed a desire to speak’ to the media.

A spokesman for Southern Cross Austereo spokesman added today: ‘We haven’t ascertained when they’re ready for that (to speak to the media) and how we’re going to organise that, but they certainly want to.

‘They are still being wrapped in cotton wool at the moment and we are very mindful of their situation.’

New South Wales Police deputy commissioner Nick Kaldas, confirmed the request, saying: ‘It hasn’t been indicated to us that an offence has occurred and they have not actually asked for anything yet.

‘They’ve simply touched base, let us know of their interest and they will get back to us if they actually want something done,’ he told Sky. ‘Nothing has been requested of us yet.’

Bosses at Sydney radio station 2Day FM pleaded for sympathy for the breakfast show co-hosts as they faced a boycott by advertisers not wishing to be associated with their brand of ‘humour’.

Sandy Kaye, a PR for the radio station, said: ‘We are very concerned for the well-being of our talent. They are very, very distressed. Mel is very vulnerable. She has been vulnerable in the past.

‘So we are very concerned about her. She is in a very fragile state and we are concerned for her. We are giving them professional care. They are receiving counselling.’

Southern Cross Austereo is holding an emergency board meeting to consider what action it should take over the prank phone call, reported the Sydney Morning Herald.

Chairman Max Moore-Wilton added: ‘The chief executive officer (Rhys Holleran) is responsible for the operations of the organisation within the framework that the board broadly sets.’

Miss Greig’s father Sydney said at his home in South Australia: ‘I don’t know where she is. I can’t say anything. I am very concerned for her. I am not sure where this is going. I have spoken to her but I have been told not to say any more.’

A 2Day FM source said the two DJs were being looked after in the devastating wake of their show and were now both in ‘lockdown’.

A close friend of Miss Greig said: ‘Everyone who knows Mel fears for her mental state. Yes, there are very real fears that she could self-harm and nobody wants that.

‘Of course, she is blaming herself for what has happened. What was done in fun has turned out to be a horrible tragedy.  She is close to a breakdown.’

The station could face action over the fateful call as under Australian law it is illegal to record someone or publish a taped conversation without the person’s permission.
