I wasn't going to mention it, but when I read at the Beeb that "the prince and Mrs Parker Bowles wanted to keep the occasion low key", I feel impelled to comment.
I will be helping them to fulfill this desire by not attending. This will disappoint my readers (a Mrs Trellis of North Wales), who look to me for an unbiased and yet personal account of these occasions. But Charles was quite clear on the telephone this morning, and reading between the lines, I think that he fears that my continued presence in these circles threatens his position as future King. He need not worry, I will continue to turn down the opportunities to be head of state, no matter how emotional is the plea. These people should know by now, and it really does get quite tiresome.
To get back to the quote, take a tip from Charlie Windsor, if you want to keep an event low key, just make sure that all arms of the media mention that fact, and thus it is achieved.
