It's That Woman Again [Jun. 19th, 2013|03:05 pm]
Tony Grist
It's hot and heavy. Ailz and I are sitting on the patio with the awning over us. My mother is in the living room with the patio doors open- watching coverage of Royal Ascot.

The Queen is wearing mint green, says the commentator. I look sideways, across the shadowy interior, and see that Camilla is sitting beside her in the carriage. The Queen has one of those sui generis, flower-pot hats of hers which Camilla is all but eclipsing with a huge circular hat covered in gauze and toile and all that kind of thing.

We're seeing a lot of Camilla these days. In fact we're seeing a lot of all the lesser royals. I think this is the Palace PR department preparing us for the transition that can't be all that far ahead now- getting us enthused (they hope) about the extended clan in anticipation of the moment when everyone moves up a seat and Camilla will be Queen and her not greatly admired husband the reigning monarch.

Malachy has been pretty well debunked I think. As for Charles who knows? I think the death of the present Queen could be a game-changer.

I can't imagine getting enthused about Camilla. On the other hand, I watched some of that church service they had for the anniversary of the coronation and the two daughters of Andrew were often in shot and looked so... not-stupid that I really noticed it, so maybe you're right.

Was that the occasion when they wore those preposterous hats?

No, I think that was the royal wedding. They were looking surprisingly normal and sensibly put together on this occasion, so much so that I assumed some kind of palace PR person had had a word with them and told them not to look stupid.
