What particular thing? You mean about the Queen's mental state? I think the problem there was that the paper was trying to make it sound as though she was saying that the Queen had age-related mental problems when in fact, if I'm reading it right, she said nothing of the sort.

I did find it amusing that she was criticising Camilla for being nice. Wonder what she'd have said if Camilla had been a strident harpy?

So what is new about the Princess? She is an loudmouth who is not very discreet. She knew better and still talked out. Anything that she has said is not new!! She wants to have her 15 minutes of fame lengthed.

have a good night/day Linda 85

From reading the comments Princess Michael is attributed to have made in relation to Camilla, I took her to mean that Camilla was being "fake" nice. That is just my interpretation of what I thought she was saying. Whether that is what she meant, I do not know.

The Duchess of Cornwall, for me, i think she seems getting used to The Royal family now, by her attendance at Royal great Events like Trooping the Colour, Garter Service, Willism's Graduation, Trafalgar's Anniversary,...It seems she doing well outside, but inside i'm not sure about the relationship of her with other members of The Royal Family, maybe still have some distance.
Thanks you, Elspeth for explaining that, because actually i'm not an English myself, i'm just an Asian so it's hard for me to understand all what Western talking about.First, i thought that Princess Michael means The Queen is getting some mental sicknesses or getting mad or something like that, i did not understand much, but now i have got that.

I agree. she's not doing anything illegal. Selling something that belongs to her doesnt make her greedy. the article claims the price of the house is inflated but I'd like to hear a real estate expert's take on that.

I had a guilty sort of excitement when i heard that her "inside" comments would be made public. but she really didnt say anything even remotely interesting or new. anyone with even a passing interest in royalty knows this stuff.

it's ridiculous that she claims to be commenting on William and Kate's relationship. all she said was that they're too young to marry.

these newspapers are only out to make a profit.

Princess Michael is a highly intelligent woman who should have known better than to open her mouth (again!) and comment to a stranger on such personal matters. But once again, she has managed to offend the Queen (who is well known to dislike her with a passion) and everyone else in the family.

Hopefully, she has learned her lesson!

Although I think she should have been more wary we must remember that she wasn't saying these things to any old stranger. The reporter would have been deliberatley behaving in a way that would have encouraged the Princess to feel he was someone she could trust. A real Sheik is not the sort of person who runs to the newspapers with stories and that is why Sophie also felt she could be open with the same reporter under the same circumstances. A senior courtier was quoted in The Daily Mail newspaper as saying that the Queen is sympathetic towards Princess Michael for this reason and is just relieved that nothing more serious was said. He added that the Queen's wish is, "for the whole thing to be forgotten about as soon as possible".

Princess Michael should have stated " NO COMMENT!"

She will do anything to get press time.

Well, I don't think she knew she was talking to the press this time.

I agree...but....you have to love the fact when she opens her mouth, she does not lets it go full force... just like Prince Philip...I like the fact that neither of them are shy and both refuse to be put into a corner..like some statue.

I concur. You definitely must applaud her bravado!

You never have to wonder where you stand with her or Prince Philip. Whether you agree with them, I appreciate their honesty.

To quote Lou Grant on the Mary Tyler Moore Show: "I hate spunk."

I don't hate Princess Michael, she puzzles me. You'd think after all this time she would have learned some discretion (especially after the Sophie incident).

I've also been very curious about her relationship with Prince Michael. I get the impression she's the dominant partner. Maybe I'm wrong.

Well, I did read somewhere that many of the Windsor men are rather weak and need strong women to bring out the best in them - the Duke of Windsor and George VI being the most obvious examples, and Prince Charles being another - so maybe this is another instance of that dynamic.

Interesting point, Elspeth. When you look down the family bloodline, it does seem that the strong wives of the previous Kings, Princes of Wales, etc. are a much needed necessity by them. Queen Mary really set a lot of precedence for that.
