I feel as if Wendyl and I are kin­dred souls. I, too, am not re­ally a roy­al­ist, hav­ing grown up in Zam­bia. How­ever, when Diana and Charles got mar­ried, the world around me came to a tem­po­rary halt. I was work­ing in a bank at the time, and the man­ager re­alised he would lose his staff to ‘sick leave’ on that mo­men­tous day, so he hired tele­vi­sion sets, which were placed in­side the branch so staff and clients could en­joy the royal wed­ding. That ig­nited my in­ter­est in the royal family. I am ab­so­lutely smit­ten with Ge­orge, and now lit­tle Charlotte. They are adorable, nor­mal chil­dren with lovely par­ents do­ing their best to raise well-bal­anced young­sters. I think we have two fu­ture lead­ers worth watch­ing in those chil­dren... and yes, I agree there is a look of the Queen in the side­ways glances Charlotte gives to the cam­era.
