Hi, it’s Wolf Whistzer, intrepid newshound at the Greenygrey. The media hoo-ha ‘scandal’ about the Kate Middleton topless photos is a very greenygrey issue isn’t it. Well, it is for us. While we’d prefer a historic republic like France has, perhaps from the time of Cromwell, we think that the British royal family is now quite decent in most ways, and is probably preferable to most of the presidents we might have had in the last quarter of a century. The modern living of William, Kate and Harry only make us warm to the royals, and think the modern British royal family is not too bad at all.
Kate Middleton is a Modern Woman
While the media intrusion is unfortunate for Kate Middleton, we think it shows that her and William are quite normal modern people, and the sympathy that will follow the ‘scandal’ will probably benefit her image in the future.
The diplomatic way the British and French people have responded to the story also shows the way that matters such as this should be handled in the modern era.
