I couldn't agree more and such an enjoyable insight.

In either the podcast or her memoir, or both, she talks about how serving as one of her father's confidants meant that naturally he would do all the talking and she would listen. Between that and her own inclination for writing, Pamela seems to have become a fantastic raconteur somewhere over the past 75 years or so.

It's almost funny how she talks about HM being so self-effacing, which is well-known, but then I think she was the only person to be both a bridesmaid at the wedding and an attendant at the Coronation, let alone with her on the accession tour in-between. Pretty remarkable.

"My Years with the Queen” ITV program with Pamela and India Hicks is thoroughly delightful. Very entertaining!

I enjoyed watching Lady Pamela Hicks and India Hicks having conservations with each others recollecting family memories. Love the previously unseen footages and photos, as well as some sections of Lady Pamela's diary

I do recommend watching this episode.

It was a good programme.

She & her children were lucky not to have been on the boat at Classiebawn.
