You mean they should make a stuffed version of her so children could take her to bed each night and not be afraid of the (political?) monsters hiding under their beds or in their closets?

All depends on how you define "cuddly", I guess . . .

In today's uber-patriotic nostalgia-obsessed Britain, the toys would probably sell like hot cakes.

Even a Camilla Parker Bowles action figure?

Probably not that one, no...

Camilla will never be forgiven for replacing "the People's Princess". Even though half the population hated Diana when she was alive.

People are strange. When someone dies, the narrative often changes.

Yeah, but in Diana's cae it was extreme. She went from being That Tart Who'd Let Down the Royals to Saint Diana the Eternally Blessed overnight.

So do I. Oddly enough, I think I was saying that only last week. It was that bloody record that did it.

The way she died may also have played a part, being literally hounded to death by the paparazzi.

If she'd been wearing a seatbelt, it may have been a different story. Learn from this, kids: always wear a seatbelt, or you could end up a dead legend instead of a living, rich floozy.

How does Camilla compare to the late Wallis Simpson (a.k.a. the Duchess of Windsor)?

Society today eing what it is, I doubt most people even remember Mrs Simpson, and those that have heard of her see it as a romantic episode, the King giving everything up for love, while treating Camilla completely differently.
