Much as I like Jacobi, I much preferred Alex Jennings in the role. The DOW totally snowed Charles, with bs about he was pushed out because he was such a rebel and individualist. He left out the part where he couldn't be bothered to do any of his kingly duties (red boxes, meetings with the government, etc) and would have been a lousy king regardless of whether Mrs. Simpson was on the scene. But of course, no one in the royal family apparently talked to Charles about much of anything. Charles was supposedly close to the Queen mother. I'm surprised that she didn't give him an earful regarding Uncle Nazi. On the other hand, Charles was a very young man in this episode and of course he is going to relate to someone being a rebel and marrying for love.
I loved the exploding card, and the fact that Camilla enjoyed it too was a good sign that they were in sync, at least as regards humor.
I know! I never heard of that. Surely they didn't make it up for the show? They've made a lot of other things up, but surely that would be a bridge too far?
