    I have always taken an interest in her Royal Highness, because I was born on the exact same day as her.
    I was so sad to read of her ill health and wish her better health to come.

  5. Patricia Winniford Williams says:

    As a child I had a Madame Alexander doll modeled in her image. She
    is a great lady and an outstanding role model for all of us. If only
    there were more like her! It was very disturbing to me, personally,
    to learn of her health issue. She has been an outstanding ambassador
    for the Queen.

  6. Vera Johns says:

    I only recently learned of the princess’s ill health. I have always admired her and wish her a very speedy recovery. She is a wonderful woman and it is a great pity that there are not more with her sence of elegancy style and compassion.
