A few months ago, The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were visiting Canada, and I saw on TV a performance given for their entertainment which I found offensive. And, given the sour faces on the royal couple, I think they were offended. (A female impersonator impersonating the queen--maybe funny in some circles, but not my taste and not to be shown for the queen's son. IMHO.) Anyway, I sent the prince a letter apologizing for the inappropriate performance, stating that although it was probably not intended as an insult to the queen, nevertheless I thought it in poor taste. I also mentioned that I'd briefly met the duchess in Vancouver on a chilly November day and hoped they'd return sometime when the weather would be more welcoming.
So: yesterday, I received a very nice letter from the Prince of Wales.
