“I was alive when George VI was King, and I remember my mother telling me he'd died. How times have changed since those days!”

Me too, Sen! I remember very clearly my gran weeping uncontrollably at the news of the king’s death, and bursting into tears every time it was mentioned over the next few days.

But I wonder whether things really have changed, are the Royals ‘different’ now, or is it our perception of them that has changed? I have a strong suspicion that they’ve always been the unpleasant bunch they are now but, in days of yore, their shenanigans went unreported and the public had considerably less access to information about them than in these days of t’Interweb etc.
