She's been defending her stories by saying that she got confirmation on many of them from the Duke of Windsor. His opinion on the Queen Mother is well known. I wouldn't believe a word out of his mouth.

The DM story says that she's had to move to a flat in a not so posh part of London. The 'place in France' doesn't mean much. Hundreds of thousands of Brits have places in France. Bought in the right part of France you can get an old farmhouse very reasonably.

This is what I read here: Caribbean BELLE Magazine - Regal Jamaican - Peter Jarrette visits Lady Colin Campbell at her London home, where she chats about her two sons, her career as a best selling author, the royal family, and what she has in common with Carrie Bradshaw

Relevant Text:
"In a quiet, upmarket quarter in the South London area of Kennington, there is a small walled garden shaded by a handsome fir tree. Secluded garden steps lead to a door next to a turret and at the top of that turret is the boudoir of the most gracious woman, the Jamaican born citizen of the world, Lady Colin Campbell.

Georgie, as her friends, new and old, know her, greets me with a warm and immediate hug. She flings open the garden door entrance to her London home and bathes my ears with her rich, cultured Jamaican accent, “Darling! How are you? You found me! We meet again!”

Lady Colin Campbell or Georgie Ziadie (to use both her less formal first name and her maiden name) has the ends of her tumbling blonde locks loosely wrapped in curlers, and only a scant application of foundation on her serene face. She is wearing a casual jersey top and dark denims.

Although London is her base, Georgie’s Kennington home sees her in residence only once a week for a day or three as she alights in London for business—publishing, media and of course shopping. Her second home is a stunningly large concern—a chateau in the south of France. Chateau de L’Algarie, in the Tarn region (the famous Roquefort cheese producing domain) is set in an idyllic parkland and is towered by ancient trees. Twenty kilometres east of Albi, the L’Algarie area boasts a treasured Cathedral, and has been named a World Heritage Site.

Halfway between her many-roomed, jaw-droppingly large chateau and her much more compact London pad is her apartment in Paris —a pied-a-terre that she arrives to from time to time. “...for the shops and the fine dining in the city of lights darling.” Our lady leads me into her objet d’art-filled Kennington drawing room.

The names are closely related, if not actually the same name in different languages. My father's middle name was James, but it was "Jacobus" on his degree. His university degree was written in Latin in 1951.

The original, post from Excalibur, sounds, very anti-semetic.

Confirmation by the Duke of Windsor...oh my...The biggest useless fart the Royal Family ever produced who changed his Empire for a US tart,now that's a thrustworthy source if there ever is one.....so impressed...!

It's as clear as chrystal that this Campbell woman is after maximum effect in a otherwise most splendid Royal year thus taking care of stashing pound sterlings in her purse along the way...A downright nasty and evil speaking woman....But I always trust on the good old;"What goes 'round,comes 'round",anytime.

I just won't go there, just won't do it. Where there is anger there is self-interest. There is a saying: The moment one feels anger one has ceased to argue for the truth and begun to argue for oneself. Using such low-grade words to describe other people makes me wonder what is really being debated.

I would love to hear her explain how she came into contact with the duke since he died in 1972 and wasn't really in the best of health for some time before hand. Did she actually interview him at some point in time or is she going off of what other people claim he said?

In the BRF there are several tarts, some even British.

Erm . . . Aristocratic in that she was married to, and divorced by, Lord Colin Campbell within a matter or 14 months or so.

I have to admit that a woman who trades heavily on her title, "Lady Colin Campbell", a title she uses by her own admission, out of sheer spite, is not someone in whom I would put great of stock. 14 months moving in the upper echelons of the British Aristocracy hardly gives her time to cement really good sources for her trash talk. As to the Windsors, well the Duke died in 1972 and dearest Georgie only married Colin in 1974. Hmm, did she perhaps strike up a very dear friendship with the Duchess? I don't believe I saw her name mentioned as a close friend in any of the many biographies about the Windsors.

Quote:
. . . . In Georgia's case, this has led to repeated accusations of snobbery, which she icily denies. She did, she says, initially revert to her maiden name, until she heard rumours that she had been forced to give up her title.

'Now nothing will ever get me to give it up,' she says. 'If I marry 27,000 times, I will keep this crummy little name I loathe.' With that, she rises and leaves for her small flat on the edge of Belgravia.
Nasty divorces seem to run in the family - Opinion - The Independent

Her own words say it all. She is a very bitter "woman scorned" and seems to live to pour scorn and bile on women in the BRF who, rightly or wrongly, are admired or revered by the public. That she chose Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee to release this tome is no coincidence. She is going for major hurt and distress for the Queen and the rest of the family, defaming as she does, a loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother and trying to ruin the Queen's very good year!

What do you really think? The Queen Mother born of surrogacy? With eight elder siblings the question is why not how!

Queen Elizabeth cold in the bedroom? So frigid as to negate all chance of falling pregnant? How does Colin get to be the only person "in the know", "with the good oil" so to speak?

Queen Elizabeth, born of artificial insemination? Hmm, a quick read over the history of the science makes it more than a little unlikely, but more importantly, why? When she was born her Uncle David was going to marry and have children of his own. And, if he didn't, well there were still two younger brothers so having an "heir" was not imperative enough to risk a bit of "home baked" impregnation.

To be honest, there may be quite a lot of actual fact in this book but the utter drivel destroys what little credibility there is. The BRF are a really easy "mark" and I don't believe our beloved Queen Elizabeth will be even cold in her grave before the first bitter "scoop" by Georgie!

Of course she would never give up using the title. It is her bread & butter. It is being "Lady Colin Campbell" that gets her books more attention than they deserve. If plain Mrs Georgia Campbell went to a publisher she would have had a much harder time getting such books published, and likely would have hard more rigorous scrutiny for her claims. Some assume because she is a "Lady" she must know what she is talking about when she writes about the BRF. Bollocks.

Please tell me you are joking, right? Because if you knew me, you would realize how utterly laughable the notion that I am anti-semitic.

The point of my post was to point out that in scripture, the King James Version of the Bible to be precise, that Joseph's father was referred to as Jacob, or Israel, but not James:

Quote:
And one told Jacob, and said, Behold, thy son Joseph cometh unto thee: and Israel strengthened himself, and sat upon the bed. Genesis 48:2 (KJV)
My knowledge of Latin is rudimentary at best, so thank you Mermaid, for pointing out that the names James and Jacob are so closely related. You learn something new every day -- even at my age.
