I really can't tell you how abhorrent I've found the trash reporting about Hugh Grosvenor this week. He has a day job, seems discreet, has never let himself down.
I miss a world in which mourning and bereavement were respected.
So so right. They do everything to avoid the press
Decency has long been lost.
Well, yes and no IMO. Becoming the Godfather to Prince George THE Prince George, heir to the heir to the heir of the British throne, future King WILL put you into the spotlight. This was a choice. I don't think Hugh should have said no and refused, but saying yes does put one into the spotlight.
Also, I think that the ACTUAL mourning has been respected
No shots of mourners. No photos of the coffin. No paparazzi shots in Hugh's face, outside his home, at his place of business etc.
Yes, public discourse has taken place, bringing up disgusting bits, as well as more admirable aspects, of the Duke's behavior.
IMO gossip is just that. He's now one of the richest individuals on the planet, with all the concomitant power. Observing and discussing how they use or misuse that power is both necessary and important.
You own half of Mayfair. Your actions determine people's livelihoods. You're going to be watched and discussed.
