Her “confessions” include her faux pas when she tried to amuse the Queen, her long and intimate conversations with the Princess of Wales and what Prince Charles really thought of her white stilettos! She loves to make people laugh and to show them that she is quite different from how people imagined her when she stood outside the Palace.
