The royal biographer talks about HRH.
This week, we had the opportunity to speak with Richard Palmer, royal correspondent for the Daily Express regarding Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and the topless photo scandal.

While waiting for his connection back to London, Palmer wrote an insightful piece on how the Duchess handled the photo scandal.  He had been on tour with William and Catherine as part of the accredited press pack, and witnessed the aftermath in Kuala Lumpur.

Palmer noticed how calm Catherine seemed after learning about the invasion of her privacy, and it was she who reminded William to “smile” in the back half of the tour.  Understandably, the prince may have been more upset than his wife, given the memories it brought back. 

Also on this week’s episode, Marks & Spencer creates a hot commodity that makes it easier to dress like the Duchess, and Carole Middleton is on Karl Lagerfeld’s radar.
