Well said. The fact of the matter is that, IMO, in current-day Britain, divorce and remarriage is not really considered an issue. This is not a new social phenomenon, and family breakdowns probably...

I completely agree with IluvBertie. Britian has changed considerably since the 1930s, and social norms reflect the current state of play. Whilst divorce was rare at the time, we now live in a society...

With due respect, depsite the quotes coming from a book on Diana, there really does not appear to be any proof that any of this actually happened. It just does not appear to be in character. Also,...

Zonk, you are far too polite.

Scooter, Do you have any basis for your potentially slanderous accusations, or is this another of your attempts to generally vent about people you do not like?

My own view is that some things are best left in private, and I really do not want to know any more about the private lives of the royal family than I already do. I think it is commendable that...

Is that not just yet another Labour luvvie trying to spice up their book with royal anecdotes that are unlikely to be verifiable? Jonathan Powell and his partner were hardly going to be royal models...

I have no doubt C&C have an appreciation of the hoops they had to get through to get where they now are, and have come to an arrangement that works for them. She does the requisitie public duties,...
