You have your mother’s common sense but your father’s devilment. I see them fighting. Let your mother win.
Sometimes the best way to win a fight is not to start one, but if you do come up against somebody you know you can’t beat, be smart. It’s okay to run the other way.
Sometimes it’s not about backing the man most likely to win. It’s about backing the right man making sure he does win.
While you mourn your father, you must also mourn someone else. Elizabeth Mountbatten. For she has now been replaced by another person, Elizabeth Regina. The two Elizabeths will frequently be in conflict with one another. The fact is, the Crown must win. Must always win.[to Elizabeth]
