Not a wedding anniversary — 3 Comments

  1. Ahem. Are you trying to make a point about taxation? The personal immoralities of the royal family scarcely in themselves amount to wholesale oppression of the populace. And if Diana’s follies (including adultery and talking to Martin Bashear) can be put down to entering a dysfunctional family, can’t we be similarly charitable to Charles, who grew up in said family?

  2. By the way, the wedding of Charles and Diana is the first thing I can remember watching on television (we didn’t have one and went round to the neighbour’s house). Loyal fervour was such that the village was decked in red, white and blue bunting, and my mum contributed to the festivities by making a wedding tableau using my dolls and putting it in our front window. It seems like a different world…

  3. Dot,

    I grew up on stories like that about the coronation!

    A.N. Wilson makes an interesting point about Britain’s relationship with the monarchy – it has been less than cordial at times. 1997 was one such moment; it will be interesting to see how it affects the future.
