My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television. I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances. I don’t think it would happen today.
—  Prince Harry on the torture of walking behind Princess Diana’s casket on live TV in front of the entire world.

Heather, Heather, Heather, and someone
Heather, Heather, Heather, and a Duke
Heather, Heather, Heather—
Duke of Edinburgh, Duke of Edinburgh, Duke of Edinbuuuuurgh!

And one knows, one knows, one knows,
Crowns can be beautiful!
One rules, one smiles, one waves
And one gets one’s way!
Ask one how it feels
Lookin’ like a prince on wheels
Goodness me, it’s beautiful,
And when one’s beautiful,
It’s a beautiful frickin’ day!
