My news feed seems to have been stuck on the dreadful experiences of model Chloe Ayling .
But this morning it changed to Diana: In Her Own Words – admirers have nothing to fear from the Channel 4 tapes
Mr furlong and I watched it.
What it showed was how antiquated the idea is that the royal genetic line should be protected even at terrible cost to people involved.
Cuckolded princesses/consorts have been the mode at all times. An old-fashioned princess would have simply accepted. But Diana had the idea that a husband should be faithful.
Diana was not the first ruined life.
There was Edward, Duke of Windsor.
And Princess Margaret.
The antics of the royal family in many areas are what ordinary people would call ‘abuse’. Nasty – very nasty.
Perhaps when the Queen dies, the new monarch could usher in a modern age?
The program last night did nothing for the Royal Family, and induced an intensified Charles dislike as I followed on Twitter. Twitterers were mostly ordinary people registering their opinions. They forgot that the highfalutin classes, have never behaved like us – nor ever will.
Their privilege makes them disgusting.
