IT’S not yet panto season, but Samantha Markle must be a shoo-in as the ultimate Ugly Sister. This horrid woman has done nothing but carp at and criticise her half-sister Meghan. It began almost straight after Meghan’s engagement to Prince Harry was announced and carried on through the lead-up to the Royal Wedding and beyond. Only in the past week has Samantha realised that being vile and vindictive has achieved nothing other than making her look like a green-eyed witch (but spelt with a B). Among her most hurtful outbursts were that Meghan was cold and inhumane and that the marriage was doomed to failure. She was also apparently behind those stupid staged paparazzi shots of Meghan’s dad Thomas trying on suits before the wedding. It was those paid-for photos that led to him having “health problems” and failing to walk his daughter down the aisle. After appearing on every TV and radio outlet that would pay for her bile-fuelled rants, Samantha recently tried … [Read more...] about Horrid Samantha Markle is the perfect ugly step-sister for panto season as she’s done nothing but criticise The Duchess of Sussex
KATE Middleton's mum is selling a blood-spattered princess costume causing outrage among fans and friends of Princess Diana. Carole Middleton's Party Pieces website is selling the "Zombie Sleeping Princess Costume" for girls as young as four, which features a princess's exposed "rib cage and organs". But friends of Princess Diana have described the outfit as being "sick", linking the fancy dress costume to the princess who was killed in a car crash in 1997. Princess Diana was being driven in a black Mercedes when it smashed into a pillar in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris. Simone Simmons, a friend of Diana's, told The Daily Star: "This is sicker than sick. "This is really scraping the barrel. It's twisted and warped." Ms Simmons also hoped that people would boycott the website. The gory outfit is on sale at a price of £10.99 on the website, which is owned by the mother of the Duchess of Cambridge. Describing the costume, Party Pieces writes: "Our Zombie Sleeping Princess … [Read more...] about Kate Middleton’s mum sells ‘Zombie Princess’ Halloween outfit online sparking backlash from Princess Diana fans
THE pathologist who examined Princess Diana has revealed some of the questions he has been asked about the people's princess. Dr Richard Shepherd said he was inundated with questions about the Princess Di's autopsy but has long refused to reveal intimate details. He said: “People asked: 'Was she beautiful?' 'Was she peaceful?' 'Was she pregnant?’”, he said. “I always made sure I never said anything — in all the cases of public interest I was involved with — that hadn't already appeared in the press. “Pathologically there was no evidence that Princess Diana was pregnant, but some women say they know they're pregnant from the moment of conception. Was she one of those?” Dr Shepherd also maintains she would have walked away on the fateful night and been alive to see the her sons Harry and William get married had she worn her seat belt. At the inquest into Diana's death, accident investigator Anthony Read said he could "almost guarantee" … [Read more...] about Pathologist who examined Princess Diana’s body reveals questions people always ask him
THE pathologist who examined the Princess Diana has said she would have survived the car crash that killed her if she had been wearing a seat belt. Dr Richard Shepherd maintains she would have walked away on the fateful night and been alive to see the her sons Harry and William get married. Princess Diana died on August 31, 1997, after suffering fatal injuries in a car crash in the Pont de l'Alma road tunnel in Paris. Her companion Dodi Fayed and driver and security guard Henri Paul were also killed in the crash while her bodyguard Trevor Rees-Jones survived with horrific injuries.
