A misunderstanding, yes

The Duchess of Sussex said on Sunday the changing of her name on her child’s birth certificate was “dictated” by Buckingham Palace as she launched another tirade against tabloid newspapers.


Buckingham Palace has denied the Duchess of Sussex’s claim that her son’s birth certificate was altered to follow royal protocol, describing her use of the word “dictated” as “unfortunate.”

A royal source said that no such convention existed, diplomatically suggesting that there had been a misunderstanding by her new US-based staff, with the detail “lost in translation”.

As I watch that caravan passing by in the news I do keep thinking to myself that her new US-based staff just don’t understand this country. Given that she’s marketing herself to the Americans this is fair enough perhaps but I do think it’s the cause of near all the shouting going on.
