Backside’s a shameless name-dropper, so when he saw today’s headline about Princess Margaret (a lunch companion many incarnations ago) he insisted I should mention that the good lady was famous for putting it about a bit (and not just the smoke from her ever-present cigarette holder). So maybe we shouldn’t be surprised that a chap in Jersey claims to be her secret son.
One question is: why should HM the Queen’s loyal subjects not be allowed know the contents of her sister’s last will and testament? Surely in anno domini 2012 it can’t be such a problem to reveal facts about the royals’ historical behaviour (if the will is thought to be a ‘kiss and tell’ account)? Pretending to be above suspicion is hardly a trait to be waved about like a flag of convenience.
Any how! Here’s the case for the prosecution: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/nov/11/accountant-princess-margaret-secret-son
