Anorak | The Royal Family are all Diana’s children on the Diamond Jubilee show

The Royal Family are all Diana’s children on the Diamond Jubilee show

HAVE you seen the massive Diamond Jubilee tribute to the Royal Family hanging from Sea Containers House in London? It is the largest ever photograph of the Royal Family, measuring 100m by 70m and weighing nearly two tons. Odd, indeed, that photo that large can find no space for Prince William and Harry, or their dear old mum, Lady Diana.

“We would usually see her in the afternoons and evenings, the usual sort of bath-time routine. Then Father would usually read us a story or we would read to him. We would read the Just So Stories.”

And they do love things Just So. Thoughts turn to greenie Prince Charles, who when he’s not shagging another man’s wife a fellow officer in mummy’s army and flying by jet to talk about the environment,
