The lamps went out

candle

It was very impressive to see the lights going out in London at ten last night. Did you keep the vigil? I did put a candle in the window and sat in the dark for a while but, sorry, I have to go to bed early and I can’t do that in the dark. I did feel rather, ‘Couldest thou not watch one hour’ about it. Admittedly, there aren’t many houses here but when I looked out, I couldn’t see a light anywhere.

I was much struck that the Duchess of Cornwall was performing such a high profile royal duty solo at Westminster Abbey. Just a few years ago, the Queen still refused to countenance the marriage yet now you see the two of them out and about together, giggling. Remarkable the way she and Kate have taken to royal ways with such ease.

I turned the light out but didn't light any candles.

I always get the feeling Camilla would be good fun. Just a shame Charles and Diana had to go through such a disastrous marriage first.
I think she's done the royal family a lot of good. Most people must agree that Charles should never have married Diana. Those poor boys.
