Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
You have missed nothing , it had the erotic value of watching goldfish go round in circles and I have also not seen a single show of hers , I saw her last year (or the year before ) in Harrods , she was so small it was incredible , her husband Kanye is literally a midget .
She was wearing skin tight leggings in white , the highest of heels and yes , she has an appealing face and an enormous posterior and large boobs she really looks out of tilt in real life - he was insignificant
PS About 20 years previous to that I was walking into the same store from the side of the store when a young tall blond woman was walking to the door , she pulled , I pulled , she let go and smiled , I opened the door and said "An Officer and a Gentleman" she grinned and then two men walked out after her with one saying to me "You know who that is??" I replied "Not a clue" - Lady Di (and she was simply lovely )
But that would have been more than 20 years, though (time flies). She died in 97.
Try to pin down the year.
Were you living in London or just visiting?
Our Mother lived in London until the last 8 years of her life , she had created a large property business so my brother and I visited her as often as possible
I will guess it was early 90’s can’t tell you exactly as at the time it was not that important , we had seen HM several times driving her self in and around Knightsbridge ( she had a navy Rover then later a Daimler ) strange to think that she passed through her subjects and was albut invisible
I'm amazed she was allowed to just go out without security!
Read my mail again , I held the door open for her and she passed and smiled she was then followed instantly by two men both of whom i could see were her security detachment , one of whom asked me if I knew who she was ..
I was wondering if that was the case.
Still a cool story!
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.
