A woman's life can really be a succession of lives, each revolving around some emotionally compelling situation or challenge, and each marked off by some intense experience.
I have always had the courage for the new things that life sometimes offers.
I look a hundred and weigh 110 – you won't love me when you see the wreck England has made me.
I never make a trip to the United States without visiting a supermarket. To me they are more fascinating than any fashion salon.
PS: It's all gossip about the prince. I'm not in the habit of taking my girlfriends' beaux.
I am so anxious for you not to abdicate and I think the fact that you do is going to put me in the wrong light to the entire world because they will say that I could have prevented it.
