Reliving the Past Through the Writings of the Queen of Historical Fiction
Arleigh,I'm not sure I believe her about the affair...she was so into shocking all the time..and why him of all people?
She was jokingly referring to George IV, her husband!
You mean that just passed me right by?? She's too funny- I love her!! I'm so glad you posted this..you see, that part went right over my head- actually I remember reading it and asking 'how could that be..oh well'Thanks for getting me back on track;)
I love your blog, there is an award for you over at mine http://themaidenscourt.blogspot.com/.
In saying that was she not admitting his marriage to Mrs. Fitzherbert was legal and then hers illegal. When I read thise lines in the book I was intrigued by them. What does anyone else think?
I think she was joking... I liked how she viewed Maria Fitzherbert with empathy, but she knew the people would never consider her his true wife because she was Catholic.
I think that's it exactly Arleigh- I read somewhere that the Catholics never really thought of Caroline as their Queen; particularly because George was Maria's husband in the true sense of 'Holy Matrimony'..such a good point about validity, Zetor- and I do wonder if there was a big deal made of this?
