" Hello Everyone,
In my latest After - Life interview with Rose , which you can listen to on the previous page, I make a point in
saying that as myself I am free to speak as I find. Part of the problem actually was, of course, in being titled I wasn't
meant to do so and being a " Free Spirit " was the cause of many of my problems within the confines of both titles that I
bore in life.
Well known that I never failed to do my homework on things spoken about by me and here is proof of this fact
reiterating the matter spoken about by me concerning the royals keeping secrets, including most notably of course their
infidelities. I, by example, had been expected to put up with my then husband seeing his mistress, now his wife of
course, compensating this by finding personal contentment in retaining my royal title!
I inspired Andrew to assist me in this homework but it points out the fact that here on my site all that is spoken
about by me has both credence and substance with evidential proof to support all that I do say and this is of course vital
and perhaps why the site has survived as were I to be quoting rubbish, it might well not have done so but truth
ultimately is never something that can be denied, can it?
H.R.H. Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh agreed in 1993 to be profiled by journalist Fiammetta Rocco in the
"Independent on Sunday" newspaper. Questions agreed on in advance, as mine were for the Panorama Interview, but
are not during these After - Life Interviews; so anyway during his interview, there to be no mentioning about his family,
his parents, his wife or his children.
The journalist strayed slightly from the script knowing this character was surrounded by myths mentioning to him
"One myth Sir is that you have had many mistresses. " He looked exasperated and responded to this "Have you ever
stopped to think that for the last forty years, I have never moved anywhere without a policeman accompanying me? So
how the hell could I get away with anything like that? " That subject matter was closed! Also mentioned the fact the
Duke of York, H.R.H. Prince Andrew might not in fact be his son; rumoured to being Her Majesty's favourite child.
Andrew looking so like Lord Porchester, her racing manager! An observation duly ignored by her interviewee; so
another subject matter closed without discussion!
This former response amused the former head of the Royal Protection Service who said "The truth is our function is
to protect the person, not his morals ... If he's inside a woman's flat, we stand outside. We don't care what he's doing
inside so long as he emerges unharmed ... so he can get away with whatever he wants ... We're not there to protect him as
the Queen's husband but to guard him as H.R.H.Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh ... there's a considerable
difference ! "
It is documented how I spent weekends in Devon with James at his mother Mrs. Hewitt's home there and likewise
he stayed at Highgrove when Charles wasn't around but as the wife of H.R.H. The Prince of Wales at all times I had the
Royal Protection Service guarding me!
So is Harry truly William's blood brother? Yes he is, he has the Spencer family colouring and looks remarkably
like my eldest sister Sarah and he is the result of a last ditch attempt of Charles and I at preserving our marriage,
something couples in situations like ours do, thinking having a child will solve the problems being experienced by them
but as in ours and in most cases this not being a viable solution at all! Sometimes even resulting in the child themselves
being resented as being blamed for the conflicting circumstances within and surrounding the relationship itself, though
thankfully this not proving to being the case with father and son. Charles and both boys enjoy a close rapport,
something I am most grateful for naturally and often wonder were I still alive if the relationship shared by the three of
them would be quite as an emotionally close one as I was a hands on Mother and overtly demonstrative of this fact both
privately as well as of course publicly. So my untimely death proved itself being a powerful catalyst for the growth of
the closeness which is so apparent between them all now as opposed to Charles's with his own parents which has always
been and remains by comparison somewhat distant and why he was so devoted to his grandmother who was in many
ways a surrogate Mother to him when as a child his parents were often in keeping with being royal and so duty bound,
not being around which is why I insisted on Wills coming with us to Australia on our first Official Royal Tour there in
