But on Thursday another video emerged — this one of William putting his arm around the waist of a mystery woman in the same club. And Kate Middleton is reportedly not too happy. Vanity Fair is reporting that sources among "royal watchers" say Duchess Kate is "less than pleased" that William was filmed partying in this manner. A source told Vanity Fair: “It was William’s
Heir to British throne says publication of 2012 images in French magazine Closer was “all the more painful” because of “the harassment” leading up to Princess Diana’s death While the royal couple were not present in court Tuesday, the Duke of Cambridge issued a statement read out by their lawyer Jean Veil detailing the damage done and comparing it to the harassment suffered by his late mother, Princess Diana. “My wife and I thought that we could go to France for a few days in a secluded villa owned by a member of my family, and thus enjoy our privacy,” William said in the statement, according to the BBC. “We know France and the French, and we know that they are, in principle, respectful of private life, including that of their guests,” he continued, however, “the clandestine w
