    I love seeing Sophie. Has she been doing more appearances or are they just getting more coverage? I know the Royal Family Instagram account has been covering her appearances, maybe that brings more press coverage.

    it sounds like a nightmare. Cleaning and doing things for guests.

    Cleaning my house which is probably the size of one of their closets is a full time job if I needed to keep it to the highest standards which means dusting everything everyday including light fixtures.

    I wonder if they by any chance are more zen and have very little in their home.

    I cannot fathom cleaning anything with all of the carving of the picture frames, woodwork, light fixtures and furniture at a palace. Just looking at it makes me exhausted.

    White glove anyone?

    Can you imagine polishing all that silver? My Mum has a silver tray and a few silver items and I'm always given the job of polishing it around Christmas, so intensely boring, I can only imagine that on the scale of a palace and having to do it more frequently than once a year

    This is the White Drawing Room and behind that mirror on the left is a hidden passage to the Queen's private quarters

    Demonstration of the door in this video - and a discussion about the cleaning!

    Unfortunately the red dress wasn't worn by Princess Diana, it was determined to be photoshopped.

    It's really hard reading on this thread. I've skipped a few threads. Am not yet half-way through, and not sure about finishing it.

    I think there are some fairly young people involved in the royal life who need to straighten up. The darling Queen may be irritated by all of the goings-on, but they should remember that not only is she the Queen. but she is also a very, very old woman, and should not have to spend her days with family worries to this degree. The young royals need to act royally for the sake of the Queen, their GRANDMOTHER. They should not bring her unhappiness. Bless her heart, she carries on through all of this hoo-haw, but she needs to be happy and as stress-free as possible. Not meaning to leave grandfather out. Applies to him, too.

    Behave, kids! Give those who love you some peace.

    Hi Teedie2 . Posts on this thread vary. I hope you can find ones you like, it changes from day to day and week to week depending on what's happening with the family.

    Tiara lovers, has this one been discussed yet. I'm sorry, but I really don't like it. Not sure what to say, I feel it looks like Christmas tree ornaments.

    He is a hot mess. He shames the media and their bullying but yet he sells his info to the tabloids. Shame on you Paul!

    I’m surprised William and Harry haven’t sued him I wish he had violated a non-disclosure agreement and been sued for every penny he has made off of Princess Diana and Her Majesty.

    Re: Corgis and carpet. Just one Corgi is a lot of vacuuming!

    Some people train the Corgi:



    but I'm skeptical!

    Oh, I would love to have closets separated by colors! Wouldn’t that be nice? One could actually see what they owned.

    My clothes don’t have that much breathing room. They are choking to death due to lack of space! Lol.

    Female MPs support Meghan with a letter:

    Seventy-two female MPs have written to the Duchess of Sussex to express their solidarity with her in the face of the "outdated, colonial undertones" which appear against her and her family in the press.

    The parliamentarians, from across the political spectrum, said they supported her in "taking a stand against the often distasteful and misleading nature of the stories printed in a number of our national newspapers concerning you, your character and your family."

    The MPs rounded off their letter by calling on the press to respect an individual's right to privacy and to stop "seeking to tear down a woman down for no apparent reason."

    Diana grew more beautiful as she got older. Perhaps because she developed a lot of self confidence.

    I really hate the Queen’s George Washington hairdo.

    I wonder what hairdo would look good on her

    My mother wore a similar hairstyle for most of her adult life. It was an easy style for her and I know she didn’t want the hassle of changing, even though something else might have looked better. In the Queen’s case, I suspect it’s also important to her to project a consistent look and not distract people with trying something different. It probably works well with hats and tiaras too. :)
