Subject: RE: BS: Harry and Meghan
I always smile at the idea of the Royals attracting millions of tourists. I used annually to take groups of pupils on week-long trips to France, including a day visiting Paris. The Palace of Versailles was always heaving, and after queuing for ages, one couldn't see much except the ceilings due to the press of the crowds. The French haven't had a monarchy since the end of the eighteenth century...

I've just been catching up on the Meghan's-letter-to-her-father fiasco, and find it all very distasteful. I imagine the Queen is squirming at such a private matter being thrashed out in such a public fashion.
