    COVID 19 - Second Wave

    Was that a GP-run clinic or a mass vaccination clinic ? I went to one of the latter, and it did seem to me that the helpers greatly outnumbered the patients. I know that our GP clinic (which I didn't go to) had more volunteers than they knew what to do with.

    That occurred to me too!

    Unlikely he was the inspiration for Eugenie naming her boy August.

    Surprised you didn't accuse me of being posh for having more than one vacuum cleaner

    Room 101

    Last for ever, though. My upstairs, er, vacuum cleaner is a Miele that I inherited over 20 years ago, and I am pretty sure the previous owner bought it second-hand.

    Yes, I was wondering if the Queen might do something. But on reflection, if as is likely Philip dies before her, she'd probably prefer to leave it for Charles to deal with.

    Hospitalised!

    I've never really been sure what the point of this thread is. Surely there are threads on here for everyone whose health is worth reporting?

    Technically, yes. As a royal dukedom it reverts to the Crown.

    Word is Edward gets the Edinburgh dukedom when his pa snuffs it, so that might explain the crossed fingers.

    They're just guessing. Trying to make out they know more than they do, but there's nothing new there.

    Ah yes, that's what your in-the-know friend thought, wasn't it?

    Definitely not a deliberate wink.

    Royal Family

    It's a typo. She was killed in a plane crash with her husband, their two sons and the child she was shortly expecting. Very tragic. It's likely that she gave birth during the flight.

    If it's true that Philip asked him to come, that would explain it.

    Not saying it was due to family arguing, I'm just pointing out that there are other troubles besides the state of his Dad. When you've got a parent as close to death as Philip is (and I mean due to his age and general decline, not that death is necessarily imminent) it can take very little to push you over the edge. When my mother was terminally ill in hospital I left the ward in tears more than once because she'd been so nasty to me. People do take their frustration and anger out on those close to them. The mask hides a lot, but at the same time focuses attention on the eyes, so he may have mistakenly thought his emotions were hidden.

    Of course Charles looking tearful could be down to a combination of things. He's bound to be affected by Harry's behaviour, Harry's his son after all and Chas will also be upset that his sons have fallen out. Then Philip might have had a few choice words to say about it all which could have been hurtful.
