Sunday 22nd August: Hello ElsieTuesday 24th August 2021
Today I am 62 and I would like to think everybody who has wished me birthday greetings on social media. I have tried to thank you all individually, but I’m sure some of you have slipped through the net. Last year, for the first time, I didn’t think people individually. I had only been widowed a few days before, and for various polypharmaceutical reasons I was not in a good place. But this year I am remarkably chipper, not the least because Lady Selene has gone away for another month.
The night before last I, once again, became a great uncle. David and Jessica Braund-Phillips welcomed their daughter into the world, and I can’t wait to meet her. I am sure that she will have inherited my good looks, charm and modesty. That’s how genetics works. Ask Max.
