Back in the early 2000s my grandma(in her 50s) began going to the doctor. She wasn’t sure what was wrong but she knew something was. She didn’t look anything up but she kept on going and going because she knew in her heart of hearts something was very wrong. Loving patience. My friends had 3 sons. The middle son was Down Syndrome. My daughter grew up with 3 younger brothers so she totally understood boys. I raised my kids without TV so they played games and interacted, went hiking…My friends had a Book Publishing Co. Beautiful huge house with an indoor pool. They loved having my daughter babysit when they went out on Book Tours. My oldest son went with her on occasions, he enjoyed playing with the boys and was great help. Everyone was raised understanding that’s their brother could get overloaded on too much excitement so calm down or go play outside.
How likely is it that they: 1. welcomed a 1/4 Black woman into the family to marry a Prince whom one could arguably have held the title of “most popular member of the Family”; 2. hosted a multimillion pound wedding for her, allowing her to invite all sorts of people she herself didn’t even know, instead of insisting on a modest courthouse nuptial befitting a divorcee; 3. Took her on the Royal Train to learn the ropes from the Queen herself; offered her basically whichever job suited her, including returning to acting or being patron of British Theatr.
