Yes, this one strikes all too close to home. My ex- and I were wed the
same summer as Diana and Charles, and there were all-too-many
comparisons drawn at the time -- and since.
What I will mourn more than a beautiful woman's passing is the
circumstance in which it occurs. We in the SCA are perhaps too
familiar, too close to our royalty, to fully appreciate the problems
associated with notoriety. However, we still have our own set of
difficulties: favor-seekers, implacable cronies, intractable peers.
Here's hoping that all of these in OUR ranks will take some pause,
and reflect, and better respect the privacy and perils of royalty.
