My sense of that moment was the lack of pomp attached to the lady she was not pretentious
One doesn't have to be rich or poor to have manners and decorum. Civility doesn't have to be "uncommon", and the brilliant ones have always shown decency.
There is attached to Royalty in Britain a sense of pomposity , Princess Diana's appeal was that lack of Pomp and circumstance
Having finished reading the entire compiled books of Jane Austen in sequence, for some several months, my husband has gently admonished me for speaking in a perhaps, antiquated way.
I choose not to be constrained by the modern vocabulary, however, but do agree that Pomposity is most disagreeable.
The current circumstance of an American beauty of some color, rather than pale, as a Royal, might be appalling to the propriety of a particular classist form of regal identity for some, but, I must declare that the couple seems happy in their domesticity, and thus, there should be no reproach.
Morning Roses and Humming Birds abound,
If you are one of the Royal Prince's , imbued with a sense of Noblesse oblige and if your Mother was the Darling of the People then Your actions in falling for a lady with an hue less than translucent porcelain will be accepted by most of those that pay for the priveldge of keeping you iin Range Rovers and Bentleys
If you are aidded and abetted by teams of PR professionals you could commit Murder and be forgiven
Fear not all will be well
I am not one of the R, of course, (thinking you mean Royals), but when I wake up in the morning, I have shrub roses in my yard, and hummingbirds. Not even slightly wealthy, but do enjoy a garden and multiple bird feeders.
It does pain me that so many don't even have the small satisfactions in life, as I do, while others are sitting on so much gilt, but there is not much I can do, but try and intercede for those without voices.
At last a Princess can escape, on her own! Without a rescuer. Hopefully she will be allowed asylum.
*and, the children, of course.
The passiveaggressive of these men, is to write women who say "no" as just lesbians.
The more aggreeive of such men, attack and/or rape them, to "straighten them out".
Back in the day, when my girlfriend first subscribed to MS magazine, I read a great quote, "there are no frigid women, just incompetent men".
