Kate Middleton's brother caught doing bizarre things with a dead squirrel

With Kate Middleton being criticised for taking part in cruel blood sports, it seems that it must run in the family with her younger brother now coming under increased scrutiny for his involvement in social shoots.

In what can only be described as bizarre, a series of pictures have emerged of James Middleton in strange poses with friends and dead animals. The most unusal are the pictures of the youngest Middleton and friends playing with a dead squirrel, going so far as to pose with it in several photographs.

James, his friends and the squirrel.

In other pictures, James readily poses with dead birds obviously slaughtered in social hunts. Even stranger still are the various pictures of Middleton and his friends in highly sexual poses, often dressed in women's clothing or very intoxicated. All photographs are readily available on various internet sites.

An example of one of the many strange pictures of James Middleton.

Kate Middleton fluffs her fulltime non-job to shop

Kate Middleton has been trying to push her new found enthusiam for working by dribbling bits and pieces to the media about her enormously important role at Party Pieces.

Said to be working so hard that she has no time to herself, starting early in the morning and finishing late at night, Kate's sudden industriousness we were told was her way of proving her critics wrong. Well it all seems to have been in vain for Miss Middleton has reverted back to her old ways and hobbies, one of which is shopping.

Katie Nichol from the Mail On Sunday has reported that Kate has been frequenting a West London shop called TK Maxx. Miss Nichol writes: 'The 26-year-old is a huge fan of the bargain-basement outlet TK Maxx in Kensington High Street, West London, where she pops in at least once a week.'

Miss Nichol also quotes one of Kate's pals: "Kate loves a spot of cut-price shopping. She's in TK Maxx all the time having a root through the knock-down designer rails."

Adding the time it takes to travel into London from her parents Berkshire home, we wonder just how much and how long Kate frequents "work".

Economic crisis gets Chelsy Davy interested

The Telegraph's Mandrake column has revealed that Chelsy Davy will spend a week working at Allen & Overy's private equity division in the corporate department. The change in venue is due to Chelsy's apparent interest in the current economic crisis sweeping the globe.

Mandrake quotes an insider: "Chelsy has decided that in the current crisis a career in corporate law is an interesting option. She would have gone through a strict interview process and undergone a gruelling case-study scenario."

Meanwhile, Adam Helliker from the Sunday Express reveals that Chelsy has been staying at Clarence House whilst on work experience. The gossip scribe writes: "Miss Davy, 23, returns to Clarence House (where she has been spending most nights) and after a quiet supper with her royal lover, she retires early with a selection of law books."

Prince William grows a beard whilst Kate Middleton takes part in bird kill

Prince William & Kate Middleton have been photographed together for the first time in months, not having a romantic dinner or visiting a London nightclub, but during a shooting party in the fields of Sandringham.

Sporting a beard, Wills and his on-off girlfriend were photographed by paps who were standing on public road, delighting in shooting birds at the Queen's Christmas residence. Donning her now infamous fur hat, Middleton took aim and shot at anything with feathers. Along with the pair was Prince Harry and an unidentified woman.

A source told the News of the World about William's beard: “He has been back about a week and knew it was only a matter of time before someone spotted him. Everyone has been saying it makes him look like some of the old British kings. No one is sure if he’s going to keep it. But it’s here for now.”

A spokesman for Animal Aid Charity was disappointed to see Kate Middleton shooting pheasant, telling the Mail on Sunday: ‘It’s depressing that Kate should be drawn into the Royal habit of killing for fun.There is no tradition of shooting in her family, yet she is now senselessly taking the lives of birds. It seems that you cannot enter the Royal Family’s inner circle without spilling blood for pleasure.’

Quote of the day: Camilla Vs Pussycat Dolls

Which would you prefer? Camilla or the Pussycat Dolls?

Graham Norton during rehearsals for the Royal Variety Show, which will be attended by Prince Charles and his wife, Camilla: “And there you have the Pussycat Dolls singing to the Prince, ‘Don’t cha wish your girlfriend was hot like me?’.”

Kate Middleton watches another waiting "princess"

With families around the world tightening their belts and being unable to take part in their normal evenings of entertainment, it seems that Kate Middleton is indulging as usual.

According to the Day & Night column in the Daily Express, Kate was seen watching the England National Ballet's "Sleeping Beauty" at the Coliseum in Covent Garden.

The ballet, which has a rather short run of a week and a half, tells the tale of beautiful Princess Aurora who was the victim of an evil spell cast upon her by a nasty fairy. Eventhough the Princess was saved by a good fairy, she was doomed to sleep for 100 years...WAITING...until her handsome prince came along, kissed her and then became her husband. Perhaps Kate was taking notes?

It has been announced by Clarence House that Prince Harry is to begin training next month to become an Army Air Corps helicopter pilot after Harry successfully passed the unit’s selection process. Harry, 24, will commence on a four week course to asses his flying abilities.

If Harry is successful in his training he would be then be able to go on to the full 16 month training programme, where he would be able to fly one of three different types of helicopters; Gazelle and Lynx which are used for reconnaissance or Apache which is used for attack. Indeed, Harry who is an officer with the Household Cavalry Regiment and served on the front line in Afghanistan earlier in the year, has made no secret of the fact he wants to return to active service, and must surely be looking forward to returning to training.

Prince Harry’s girlfriend Chelsy Davy has started a two week work experience placement with one of the most prestigious law firms in the country, Farrer & Co., who also happen to be the Queen’s solicitors.

Chelsy, who was selected for the work placement from hundreds of applicants, was spotted by photographers on her lunch break today looking smart and professional in a dress suit whilst popping into a near by Starbucks. It seems that, unlike Prince William’s girlfriend Kate Middleton, Chelsy has a clear work ethic and is keen to put her obvious intelligence to use.

Prince William reportedly invites Kate Middleton to Sandringham

Howdy-ho-ho! Kate could bring the turkey!

Prince William has reportedly asked his granny's permission to shack up with Kate Middleton during the Christmas break. According to the Daily Star's much maligned Clive Goodman, HM is pleased with the pair sharing a "lovenest" during the festive season.

MrGoodman writes: 'Prince William has asked the Queen’s permission to spend Christmas in a lovenest with Kate Middleton. Wills, 26, wants to use a remote shooting lodge on his gran’s Sandringham estate to celebrate the festive season with his own Christmas cracker. Normally Kate, also 26, spends the holiday with her parents at a rented stately home in Perthshire. But William wants to relax with her before starting a year of intensive training as an RAF helicopter pilot.'

A friend of the couple tells Mr Goodman: “This could be his last Christmas with Kate for some time. His training and rescue duties are going to take him away from home so he would like to make this Christmas special for her. They could still share Christmas Day with his father and the rest of the family at the main house but return to their own world in the evening.” Aw...Bless them.

After making the Kate apologists all misty eyed, Mr Goodman then puts the boot into Middleton and her family: 'The Queen is thought to be perfectly happy about the arrangement. But some courtiers have raised their eyebrows. They feel there should be no special treatment of Kate unless she and William formalise their relationship with an engagement. One confided: “If you make an exception for one, why not for everyone? Frankly, many people feel that Miss Middleton and her family are quite pushy enough.”' Indeed!

Carole Middleton blabs to the press

After years of ‘sources’ and ‘friends’ being the Middleton’s unofficial mouthpiece to the British press, Kate Middleton’s mother Carole has now spoken directly to the press by allowing herself to be quoted in the Mandrake column in the Daily Telegraph.

Whilst attending the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury, no doubt invited due to her being Kate Middleton’s mother, Carole Middleton used the opportunity to inform the press she feels “vulnerable” from all the attention Katy Waity’s relationship with Prince William has brought. A tad rich coming from a woman who trotted along to Prince William’s passing out parade at Sandringham looking more royal than royalty. Indeed, it seems that Carole or Mrs Meddleton now wants to play the victim:

"You see, I feel very vulnerable about everything," she told Mandrake last weekend at the Hennessy Gold Cup, at Newbury racecourse, just a few miles from her house in Berkshire. "I'm not a celebrity and don't want to be one. Celebrities have minders and PR people. I don't want a PR person and wouldn't want to have to pay to employ one. I haven't asked for all this."

Carole also used the opportunity to dispell the infamous chewing gum rumour when she supposedly met the Queen. The fact Carole decided to let slip this little detail about the Queen has left many royal watchers questioning if William and Kate are still together.

Kate Middleton’s younger sister, Pippa, proved her ability to hang around the rich and famous wasn’t just limited to the British royal family, as she tagged along to a cocktail party at Claridge’s last night, attended by the likes of Rod Stewart and Mick Jagger’s jewellery designer daughter Jade. Wearing what can only be described as a bright blue sack and with her face showing all the fatigue signs of someone who has attended one too many society parties, Pippa showed up at the event with a male companion who it has been speculated could possibly be her current boyfriend (and if so is probably titled.)

It was a busy day for Prince William today as he took on two public duties. Firstly, opening a Media Wales’ new media centre in Cardiff. And then later going on to watch a rugby match between Wales and South Africa where he was joined by Prince Seeiso of Lesotho.

RAF was mislead over William's flights earlier on this year.

The Telegraph from the UK reveals that the RAF was apparently mislead over the Chinook incidents earlier on this year. Where as we know Prince William flew those helicopters on a couple of joy rides, to his onff girlfriend Kate Middleton, and then flew himself and his brother to his cousins stag party on the Isle of Wight.

RAF mislead over William's flights.

The document reveals that:

* William's five trips cost the taxpayer £86,434.
* William did not tell
Chinook crew or his station commander the true nature of the social events.
* The officers responsible for William's care were "counselled" over "errors
in judgement".
* Senior officers were reminded of their "supervisory
* All training flights planned by William were regarded as
"contentious" by RAF.

It’s very unfortunate, particularly as he will be leaving so close to Christmas. But the household cannot afford to keep someone on when there isn’t work for them to do.

William and Kate: relationship under "strain"

Pictured: William and Kate in happier times.

After Katie Nicholl reported in her column for the Daily Mail on Sunday, that William and Kate’s ongoing ONFF relationship has had yet another “wobble”. Fresh reports have now emerged in the Daily Express of more “strain” on the couples ill-chosen relationship, which is hardly the royal romance of the century.

William and Kate apparently had a right royal falling out over those pictures of Kate flat on her back in all her roller skate disco glory. It seems William, like the rest of us, was not at all impressed with Kate’s conduct or her lacklustre attempt at charity. But it seems that far from growing a pair and dumping Kate the girl who likes to wait, William has holed up with Kate and some friends in Scotland on yet another make or break holiday.

“William went out deer-stalking with friends at the party, who included his old chum and mentor Mark Dyer, a former Welsh Guards officer.”

Kate however was more keen on laying low after being photographed breaking the law at the beginning of October. She is said to be “embarrassed” over the photographs showing her talking on her mobile phone whilst driving, although there has been no reports of Kate being sorry or regretful instead it appears her only issue is how this has made her look, yes Kate you look like an idiot.

Kate Middleton has been promoted at Party Pieces

Kate is now "cyber-chief" at Party Pieces.

Although there has been no news on the police investigation into Kate being photgraphed breaking the law by driving whilst talking on her mobile phone, there has been news from the Middleton camp on Kate's glowing career working for her parents company Party Pieces. An un named source revealed to Adam Heliker writing in his column for the Sunday Express, that after completing not one but two, short courses in computing Kate has now been promoted from compiling and editing catalogues to the dizzying heights of "website design editor and new business manager". It seems it didn't take much for Kate to impress her bosses who also happen to be her parents.

will she or wont she be there?

Okay, so now it's definitely not quiet on the Middleton front after some much welcomed silence of late.

It's funny how the silence it always broken by the Kate side of things. According to Katie Nicholls of the Daily Mail, she has been assured apparently that Kate will be at Prince Charles's Highgrove birthday party, and that there was a "Wobble" in her relationship with William and everything is okay now.

A "Wobble" someone pointed out to me that it was an odd expression to use? Could it be another way of saying that the relationship in on an off phase? Or was in an off phase? Or is there more to come?

Prince Harry has been unofficially honoured by being given a special combat knife called a Kukri. The Gurkhas also bestowed upon Harry, the title of Honorary Gurkha.

Captain Surya Gurung told The Sun: “We don’t normally give it as a present to people. Those who we give it to, it’s because they have earned it themselves. They gave it to the Prince because of his support, friendship and work with us. For us it’s not necessarily because he is a Prince, it was because he was so liked by the soldiers. He contributed to the camp and raised the morale of the boys. He should consider himself hereafter a Gurkha. I see him as a Gurkha officer because he was there in that particular time of operations in the front line - that really mattered.”

Crown Princess Victoria booed on Indian flight

Crown Princess Victoria was probably not used to the negative reception she received when boarding a plane back to Sweden at New Delhi.

The Princess was taken to the wrong terminal by officials, meaning that the plane she was meant to fly on, with a full complement of passengers onboard, had to wait for her. When they were told of the VIP presence they were also told that there would be a delay whilst her 10 additional bags were loaded. This caused the plane to erupt into a howl of booes.

A Jet Airway's spokesperson said: "The princess was taken to the wrong terminal by the government protocol personnel. The princess was carrying at least ten bags with her, which had delayed the flight. We on our part have apologized to the princess.”

Queen Sofia of Spain upsets a whole lot of people

She said whaaaaaaat !?!?!?
Picture courtesy of AFP.
Queen Sofia has been quoted during a rare interview for her official biography called 'The Queen, Close Up!'. The book was to be released to commemorate her 70th birthday but has instead caused a huge sensation.

On gay rights, Queen Sofia reportedly said: "I can understand, accept and respect people of a different sexual orientation but why do they feel proud about being gay? But you can't characterize this as marriage. Why do they get on floats and go out protesting? If everyone who wasn't gay did that, we'd have traffic chaos." Queen Sofia also spoke against abortion and euthanasia, as well as comment on the marriages of her children.

Even though a spokesperson for the Spanish Royal family has tried to hose down criticism of the Queen, the books author, journalist Pilar Urbano, stood by it's contents: ‘What the Queen said is what my book says’.
