"On Sunday we saw three great exemplars of the art standing side by side on a balcony overlooking the Cenotaph: the Duchess of Cornwall, the Duchess of Cambridge and the Countess of Wessex, in whose hands so much of the Royal Family’s future rests.
Missing from the picture were the Duke of York and the Duke of Sussex, both of whom are now in the wilderness, having proved unequal to the task of representing their country and their family, despite having spent their entire lives being schooled in it."
"............Penny Junor, who has spent much of her life observing the Royal Family for her biographies on the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall among others, believes the three women also have altruistic personalities that will safely carry the Royal brand for decades to come.
“They are all very natural women who come from solid backgrounds, who seem very comfortable in their own skin and there is no tension or conflict between them,” she says.
“Princess Diana was always in competition with her husband and the Duchess of Sussex is super-ambitious, but Camilla, Kate and Sophie all seem to get on and they don’t take themselves too seriously.”
Along with William and Edward, these three women will be the strong support when Charles is King. I forgot to add Anne, the Princess Royal, of course.
