Sorry Grace, this is the first time i have corresponded with yiou and i am having to disagree with you! He is spot on!
Think about what happened there. Charles met her when he was a young man but 'uncle Dickie Mountbatten wanted Charles for one of his own so Camilla was swept aside. Charles should have had the courage of his convictions and married her there and then and knocked uncle Dickies presumptions for six, and as it happened that little Knatchbull grandaughter of Dickie wanted and married someone else! However, as history often does, events overtook the times and Mountbatten was murdered by the IRA and almost cannonised by the rest of GB. Poor old Cammy went off and married Andrew PB and had two delightful children with him. However, as it must, the 'spectre of the feast' will again raise its ungodly head for satifaction and eventually two 'starcrossed ' lovers meet again, and because nothing had been ended satisfactorily the first time, there is an element of satisfaction 'still required'.
She is introduced as a very good friend - never smile at a crocodile, you'll be taken in by her friendly grin' - this is the stuff of pantomimes but for a desolate father of Dodi Fayed, perhaps not too far removed from reality. Diana, God bless her, was not the most intelligent person on the planet, but, like a lot more was 'SAVVY - not sawee - s a v v e e or savy! Take the spelling whichever way you want. She was street wise, but unfortunately it did not prevent her leaving this earthly coil before her time should have elapsed but i do not even want to guess how this situation would have become 'the NORM'.
The Mother, of an heir to the throne of England who would be the head of the church of England, married to a Muslim and expecting a baby who would be his brother - or half brother?
How were the establishment to accept that? For further verse on the 'never smile at a crocodile' perhaps the best Panto DAME - EVER! Berwick Kaeler can give you the words, he's been doing panto in York for god alone knows how many years and please God will do it for a long time more!
