Following last weekend’s disastrous revelations the Duchess of York’s mood has been reportedly dramatically lifted by an invitation she has received to spend this weekend shooting with the Royal Family at Balmoral.
The Duchess is particularly pleased that the event could take place as early as this weekend. ‘I thought I was going to have to wait until the Glorious Twelfth, but Beatrice saw a cutting from Andrew’s shooting magazine with one bit highlighted saying that it’s open season for certain species all year round.’
‘You know, I think they may even have arranged it just for me’ she added. ‘All the best shots have been invited, and I’ve heard Prince Philip has even bought a new gun especially for the occasion.’
