One thing that is amazing is the strides we've made in understanding mental health issues and how it affects people and that they are legitimate sicknesses and issues.

Heck... I had PMS in the 70s and still, at that time, it was mostly thought of being "in my head" and the solution was to prescribe narcotic pain killers. Those "mother's little helper" were still being dispensed like candy too.

All the more reason why I think what William, Kate and Harry are doing with Heads Together so vitally important.

well I get the feeling from what Iv'e read from Dale Tryon's daughter that a lot of her behaviour was just "bad behaviour" or at least that she perceived it as such..

It most certainly was bad behavior. Even with being diagnosed as bipolar or as an admitted alcoholic or a drug addict or anything that is a medical cause, bad behavior is still something the person has to be accountable for. Illnesses can contribute to why a person acts out but it never excuses it.

I think Kanga lost the plot a bit even before she became ill. There seemed to be quite a bit of conveniently popping her still very young children into boarding school so she could concentrate on her West End shop (which did very well and made her and her family a lot of money) and partying up in London away from home at the same time. She was apparently a marvellous businesswoman and networked brilliantly. However, I think she became bedazzled by London high society and the lifestyle that opened up once she had been accepted as Charles's confidante, so that staying in the country with her husband and children was no longer enough.

Dale's end was sad and it seemed lonely which is sad because apparently her husband really loved her but he had to end it.
I heard that Kanga's business helped save her husbands family estate, anyone know if thats true?

Children in the landed gentry go to Boarding School just as William and Harry did. It is a wat of life and for the kids, a rite of passage where they make appropriate friends for life.

Her children didn't factor in but if her hard work in the city saved the family pile, it could be a bitter pill to swallow for some men that their wife was more successful than they were.

I know that children of the aristocracy go to boarding school. That's a given. However, they don't usually get sent away there as young as seven, even if the said school has taken over the family seat on the estate. And it was after years of not seeing much of their parents at all and being brought up by nannies in a style more common a generation before.

Victoria Tryon, Kanga's daughter gave an interview about the mother she still missed years ago, and here it is below, in which she talks about her family, childhood and Prince Charles.

The reality is her kids were only a year younger then William and Harry were when they started boarding school.

As lonely and depressing as it sounds it wasnít that unusual back then. Thatís why boarding schools started that young.

I think it would likely be harder for Victoria as she was literally in her own yard. Being so close and not going home. The family eventually bought the house back from the school but after the kids already moved on.

Cant see if the family were living in a nearby house why she couldn't visit occasionally... and while Dale Tryon was obviously a handful, not sure why Victoria chose to talk about it to the press... Is it really doing any good?
