A mysterious weirdo who put up dirty posters denouncing Kate Middleton’s family in the village where they live has struck again, MailOnline has learned.
The latest night-time action comes just two weeks after the twisted hate campaign posters were first put up around the Berkshire village of Bucklebury, where the Princess of Wales’s parents have lived for several decades.
Kate’s brother James, 36, who lives nearby with his pregnant French wife Alizee, 33, was said to be angry about the posters and was reportedly seen tearing them down.
Now MailOnline has learned that another series of offensive posters were put up on the wall overnight last night, targeting the Middleton family and referencing their collapsed business.
Overnight, new posters blasting their family and featuring a scantily clad model appeared outside one of the Middletons’ farms – and in nearby trees.

Most were quickly removed by villagers supporting their local celebrity family, but at least one could still be seen this afternoon.
Villagers said the new posters were aimed at stoking local hatred against the family – but they had only garnered support.
Sharon Fry, 49, a mother of four who lives in the village, said: “The Middletons are a very decent family.”
“This is their home.” And they shouldn’t have to put up with this kind of garbage.
“My daughter works on the farm and I know the staff took her down when they saw her.”
“I saw William and Kate here.
“In fact, I saw William and Kate here. I almost ran over William once when he was riding his bike this way. He just smiled at me. His safety was a priority
“The Middletons are very nice people and they run the farm really well. “There’s a place for children to play and it’s looking really good this Halloween.”
The Princess of Wales’s parents, Carol and Michael, still live in the village. Her younger sister Pippa has also settled there with her hedge fund tycoon husband and their three children.
Kate’s brother James and his French wife have moved into a £1.45million 17th century farmhouse in neighboring Stanford Dingley, where they are expecting their first child.
The new outrageous posters refer to Middleton’s Party Pieces Holdings Ltd.
They show a model with a pink top that comes from the shady Only Fans site.
Another resident, Sue Rixon, who was with her family at Bucklebury Farm, owned by Middleton, said: “We shouldn’t be seeing these posters.”
“They are very rude and don’t respect this area at all.” This is a quiet, idyllic place
“Whoever did this placed them right outside the farm gate where children could see them.”
Since it’s the semester break, there are a lot of children out and about. That is not very good. I hope whoever sees them takes them down.’
Another resident, who had torn down posters himself, also struck.
He said: I am extremely worried. I was on my morning walk through the village with my dog and yet again we were being targeted with some campaign against the Middleton family.
Resident Sue Rixon, who was with her family at Middleton-owned Bucklebury Farm, said: “We shouldn’t be seeing these posters.”
The posters reference the collapse of the Middletons’ business Party Pieces earlier this year and call for the couple to repay remaining debts. Pictured: Carole Middleton with her three children promoting Party Pieces in 1989
Dozens of laminated A4 posters were pinned to trees, church noticeboards and lampposts by someone sneaking around in the middle of the night
“This is now the second time in two weeks that attention has been drawn to our doorstep. “We are a sleepy village – this is really disrupting village life and I for one and other residents are becoming increasingly frustrated.
“I tore down over 10 posters and I’m sure there are more!”
“I am also very outraged by the promotion of this website.”
The posters began after suppliers were left out of pocket by the closure of Party Pieces, which was sold by Kate’s mother Carole, 68, and father Michael, 74, shortly before it went bust earlier this year.
The creditors asked the couple to pay the outstanding amounts out of their own pockets.
Party Pieces failed in the summer with debts of £2.6 million.
The company was founded by the Middletons in 1987 and sold decorations and party supplies for children’s events from catalogs.
Its business model was transformed by the Internet revolution of the 1990s, which allowed the Party Pieces website to begin selling products to customers at home and abroad.
The company’s soaring profits are said to have helped the couple send their three children to the prestigious Marlborough College, where fees are £42,000 a year, and also helped finance their £5 million, seven-bedroom Georgian mansion in Bucklebury care for.
But the pandemic hit the company hard: children’s parties had to be canceled, and the cost of living crisis caused a further slump in business.
In June, Party Pieces went under after 36 years in business, just two weeks after it was revealed that the company had been sold to a Scottish businessman named James Sinclair after falling into administration.
A friend said at the time that former British Airways stewardess Carole was “deeply saddened” by the fate of the company.
Other friends said she was trying to make sure creditors were paid.
However, suppliers have since criticized the couple, claiming invoices were not paid before the company went bust.
A bankruptcy trustee’s report said it was unlikely that creditors would be paid back the money owed to them.
To attract maximum attention, posters have been placed near shops, churches, the entrance to a cricket ground in the village and just outside Yattendon village hall, where every Wednesday evening locals queue for freshly prepared fish and chips from the mobile Go Get Fish Van.
Outraged residents – most of whom are protective of their neighbors with royal connections – have not seen the person responsible and have certainly done their best to take down the offending posters as quickly as possible.
They were joined by none other than a furious James Middleton himself, who, the Mail has learned, stormed into the Yattendon Village shops and post office earlier this month after someone was seen sticking to the sycamore tree outside.
“He wasn’t happy and wanted to know if we’d seen any more.” “He wanted them torn down,” says 57-year-old Teri Muggeridge, assistant manager of the store, six miles from Bucklebury and three miles from James ‘ House located in Stanford Dingley.
