“Spot those Corgis playing with the princesses?”

“Yup.”

“They were brought into the family by George VI – played by Colin Firth, who was superb – in 1933 when he was still Duke of York and not expecting to ever be king. He bought a Corgi called Dookie, and then came Jane who had puppies, two of which, Crackers and Carol, were kept.”

“Perfect. Hitler was an electrifying public speaker, a true demagogue, one of those who sucks in the energy of the crowd and ramps it up and up in crazy spiral. It was his only thing, really. All the rest was sick or incompetent. And why did Blondi have to die? Tell me that.”

Best wishes to B. for a quick recovery.
