My mum was not the Queen


As a very small child I remember wondering if my mum and the Queen might not be the same person. Looking back, I suppose they're not all that alike – everyone had the same hair and lipstick then. 

On the other hand, Mum...

  • liked horses
  • often wore a headscarf 
  • was educated by a governess and never went to school
  • had a three bar electric fire
  • kept her cornflakes in Tupperware.
