Nothing is as it seems.
Ann: Diana? I would not have thought you would have wanted to pile on.
Diana: Yes, I know, and that is why I have chosen this forum to speak. You really don’t want me here, do you?
Ann: Not that, just that this is a place where those who have passed come to offer insight and wisdom to help those of us still struggling here. I have never asked about the personal lives associated with a particular incarnation, and such details have never been offered except by way of a teaching example. So no, I don’t want to get in the middle of a family fight.
Diana: Understood. With your permission, however, I do want to mention to your readers to have a care how they view this made for TV spectacle, not just the interview but the entire monarchy. Nothing is as it seems.
Many struggle to find their place in an anachronistic system which still allows us to believe in fairy tales and beautiful people. And there is nothing wrong with that if that fairy tale carries with it care and concern for those who support it.
It seems to me that many had good intentions here but were blind to any point of view other than their own. Of course I weep for the exile of my son from his family, but such has often been the making of a man or a woman. Only time will tell.
As to the palace, there is a place for pomp and circumstance, and it is to be hoped that this rough patch will, as I thought it did in my time, imbue those so royally placed to look upon others who are not so fortunate with kindness, compassion, and respect.
