Yesterday my mother and I were glued to the television, watching the coronation of King Charles III. My mother is Canadian; when she was growing up, King George was “her” king. So, I have always felt an affinity for the monarchy in England. We have gone to each wedding and funeral, vicariously, dressed up in our finery in her living room.
Yesterday, I was particularly struck by two things: Piers Morgan said that Camilla has been largely accepted by the people, because she “did not complain, and did not explain.” It is so very sad, to me, that Harry did not observe that lesson, and consequently could not be included with the family.
And now for some reading pleasure. Heavenali hosts the Daphne Du Maurice Reading Week beginning May 8. Most probably I will reread Rebecca, or Don’t Look Now. I am always so caught up in the atmosphere du Maurier creates.
It has been a happy thing for me to return to Blogger. Some have asked, “Why?!” and said that it is difficult to leave comments with this platform. But, I rejoice in its familiarity, and with old friends who have found me again. I hope you are not kept from visiting me here.
