I hate the tone of this article. It is so mean spirited. A niece wanted to share a charming picture of her great uncles off duty ..... In their sisters' home, the lovely and always elegant princess Alexandra ...and rather than be grateful and appreciative for a rare inside look, the DMail turn their noses up because it looks lived in and old. I know I should expect it from the mail... But I am offended and embarrassed.... And mad because I think there really will be hurt feelings and completely undeserved.

It reminds me of the way author Kitty Kelley went on and on about a frayed lamp cord she saw in Princess Margaret's sitting room. What she and dear Sebastian don't realise is that many aristocrats and royals have homes like these, a mixture of fine china and faded carpets and comfy elderly sofas and good silver and cheap radios. They're not worried about designer chic. I think Sebastian should get out a bit more!

The last para in that DM 'article' about Thatched House lodge was totally uncalled for.

Very distasteful article.

Flora posted a picture of her grandmother's brothers enjoying Orthodox Easter at their sister's house.

The focus of the story should have been on the close relationship between the siblings, instead, as always, the DM turned it into another nasty piece of work.

I see nothing wrong with the room.

Since the article I think Flora has deleted the picture. I follow her and Zenouska Mowatt on Instagram and the Kent branch of the royal family certainly seem very close.

Thanks for the link!
The article is odd It is nice to learn that the Kents celebrate the Orthodox Easter.

Wimbledon Men's Final 2016

Princess Alexandra joined other Royals at the Wimbledon Men's Final on Sunday - interestingly she was seated next to her cousin Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia (Lady Annabel Goldsmith was on her other side).
Princess Elizabeth is the mother of American actress Catherine Oxenberg (of Dynasty fame). Milos Raonic who was beaten in the final was born in the part of the former Yugoslavia that is now Montenegro.
