Because someone thinks, ‘I’ll get drunk and I’ll take a sword off the wall.’ That calls for trouble, “said the 29-year-old’s manager. The style of the Windsor ladies
By the way, Princess Beatrice should not have apologized for the accident to this day. “You know, we haven’t heard from her since,” said Camp angrily. Buckingham Palace is said to have declined to comment when asked by the Daily Mail.
