Do they seriously call themselves the firm? Oh, they do Barely Prince Philip came up with it. The ideas that the royals aren't family there, a firm like a business conglomerate or a crime syndicate sounds just like the mafia. I wonder if they make people offers, they can't refuse yeah, but it's always t take it so over. The next for episodes we're going to focus on two members of the firm, in particular Diana.

I want you to picture something September six. Ninety ninety seven and a sixteen year old girl with freckles, is sitting on the couch, in LOS Angeles, completely transfixed, by what she seeing on tv, a group of men, lack suits emerge from Saint James Church, Charles William Harry and Earl Spencer. Their preparing to join the solemn procession of making its way through the streets of London, Princess Diana Earl, you guessed it as the cat which approaches Westminster the camera zoom in on the casket, the shots kind. Wobbly, but then something comes into focus: a card

She breakdown in tears, Megan Mortal Megan was one of the two and a half billion people. watching Diana funeral. I dont know if you member- but this was one of the biggest moments ever remember seeing sounds to me, like she lived her alive like a candle in the wind and how cry again here there are now well after it was over Maggie couldn't get it out of her mind.
