    • QUOTES (2)

      • Lillie: I hate all this lying and pretending.


        Patsy: Dear girl, you're talking like a lunatic. Would you destroy the whole fabric of society?

      • Gladstone: (about Lillie) She's lovely, sir, perfectly lovely.


        Prince of Wales: Thank you, William. I hope you will become her friend. I think perhaps you could help her. She has an adventurous spirit and you're a wise counsel.

    • NOTES (3)

      • It cannot be said often enough that Anton Rogers gives an absolutely brilliant performance in this series. The role of a narrow and dull man may have been a thankless one. In another actors hands it could have become caricature. Anton always manages to show that there is a human being, incapable and increasingly weak in spirit though he may be, at the core of this man.

      • Prince Louis is the father of the last Viceroy of India, Lord Mountbatten.

      • In an interesting coincidence in November and December of 1978 British TV also presented a dramatization of the romance between Wallis Warfield Simpson and Bertie's grandson Edward in "Edward and Mrs Simpson". It is March of 2005 while I am writing this and we are a few weeks from Charles and Camilla's wedding. You could do an entire doctoral thesis comparing and contrasting these three different Prince of Wales and how they were affected by the loves of their lives.
