Several newspapers claim there is even an ops department in Clarence House called ‘QC’, which is preparing us for Queen Camilla.
That the nation by and large has taken the adulteress to its heart is due in large part to a carefully orchestrated PR campaign that was designed to manipulate, I mean win us over.
