A Bit Of Brit Royal Bitchin' ...
Crumbs! Could you credit it? The Crown caught a cold today; quite possibly the full blown 'flu.
Princess Diana's mother thought Prince Charles was a "spoiled brat",
Well, according to Mr Mike Merrit, who describes himself as a friend of Frances Shand Kydd [ Princess Diana's mother ] she did. And Merritt, a journalist turned author, attributes his recent and remarkable Royal revelations to 'hundreds of conversations' he had with Mrs Shand Kydd during the final nine years of her life; she died in June last year.
It appears she opined in similar style, regarding many more members of the British Royal Family.
... the Queen Mother "quite a bitch" ...
Sheesh. Some strong stuff to be sure. And there's so much more.
Here's how she said she saw young Prince Harry - her own grandson.
.... Prince Harry "a rascal" ....
Then this, of his paternal uncle Prince Edward.
She said he depended on the Queen to "pay his way" in life.
Phew! So what - you may well wonder - of the House of Windsor as a whole?
Frances Shand Kydd described the Royal Family as "German dwarfs" and said the Queen's outfits looked like they came from the Red Cross.Good golly, miss Molly. Ghoulish, gripes and grumblings - from far beyond the grave.
Dodi al Fayed's wannabe royal Egyptian dad, multi-millionaire Mohammed, didn't escape her evident disdain either.
According to the diary, Mrs Shand Kydd hated Mohammed al Fayed, Dodi's father. She learned to infuriate him by being silent.
Something else we're shown in today's article by Frank Hurley for the Mirror, is that Mrs Shand Kydd certainly wasn't too shy to swear, curse or cuss -- whether she was blasting the blue-bloods or addressing assassination accusations.
She was also, says the Mirror - ahem - devout. And she sought solace in the Catholic church and charity work.
