Piers Morgan congratulates queen-to-be Camilla
A number of years in the past, I used to be invited to a star-studded Christmas lunch at Fortnum and Mason.
I sat reverse an immaculately regal-attired Camilla, and to her left sat Chris Evans, who not like the remainder of the suited-and-booted gathering was in informal garments and draped in an enormous amount of vibrant festive tinsel that he wore all through the meal and which, in sometimes British method, no person talked about.
“Your Royal Highness,” I finally requested, “I’ve to handle the elephant within the room – is that this the primary time you’ve ever been sat subsequent to somebody dressed as a huge purple Christmas tree and are you as disconcerted by it as I’m?”
All eyes, together with Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Fry, Paul O’Grady and Dame Joanna Lumley, and a smirking Evans, turned to the Duchess.
“Good Lord no!” she guffawed, “that is very tame.”
Her amused response – I can assume of some snobbish royals who’d have gotten very snotty about such sartorial effrontery – mentioned every part you should know concerning the lady simply formally endorsed by the Queen as the subsequent particular person to carry that historic title when Prince Charles becomes King.
I’ve recognized Camilla for over 20 years, and we’ve at all times acquired on oddly properly which can be all the way down to the truth that we grew up in subsequent door East Sussex villages – she in Plumpton, me in Newick only a mile down the highway – and naturally, we’re each massively misunderstood and unfairly maligned public figures!
