Listening and wondering were all suspended for a time, for Mr. Bertram was in the room again; and though feeling…(image)

We’ve discussed this a bit on social media, but felt the occasion presented an opportunity for some snark would make a good blog post. Alexandra Knatchbull, daughter of Lord Brabourne, great-granddaughter of Lord Mountbatten, and goddaughter of Diana, Princess of Wales, was married last weekend in what was described as “the society wedding of the…(image)
