...and yet Queen Victoria was not present at her beloved Albert's funeral.
I get the impression that the Royal Family often do things that the upper
and middle classes would not but which the lower classes are happy to do.
The example that come to mind is the use of fish knives and forks which are,
I understand, not used by royalty.
Am I over generalising??
