For Sale: The Secret Message Within Charles And Diana’s Christmas Cards
WANT to buy a 1993 Christmas cart from the Prince of Wales with his children Harry (left) and William? The Omega Auctions in Stockport has that sort of thing and more. The items are being sold by a private seller and are expected to sell for up to £10,000.
Weird, no? Selling a card sent on a spiritual holiday for cash is a bit off, isn’t it? Weirder, still, buying the thing.
It’s useful, we suppose, if you are going to pretend the card was sent to you, before carving out a small carer as an expert in Charles and Di in the Daily Express newspaper. The woman you never knew revealed all in the swirls of her penmanship, you’ll say. Also, if you hold the card to the light and rub a candle over the black parts, a secret message appears. It’s a cry for help; a hint at the secret that Diana took to her grave. Read all about it …soon!
