Within hours of your engagement being announced, a Spectator columnist set the tone, writing: “Obviously, 70 years ago, Meghan Markle would have been the kind of woman the prince would have had for a mistress, not a wife.”
Well, not really, actually. We went through this 80 years ago in fact. At which point the King decided upon the wife option for the American divorcee, not the mistress.
90 years ago we might have made the assumption the Speccie just has done. 70 years ago the incidence of it not working that way was all rather fresh in the memory.
