God Save the King!

Sincerest apologies, dear readers, for the lack of posting. Yr humble correspondent came down with a bizarre sort of illness last week, and is only just recently recovered (well, mostly recovered).

However, in honor of this past Saturday's marriage between Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Camilla Parker Bowles (now the Duchess of Cornwall), yr humble correspondent would like to direct his readership to this account of the October 18, 1860 visit to Boston by another Prince of Wales (later crowned Edward VII).

Oh, and on a wholly unrelated note: yr humble correspondent returned to work this morning to discover that the EI,CL Starbucks is undergoing extensive remodeling! One must wonder if this has anything to do with yr humble correspondent's writings on the matter.

Doubtful, yes. But a man can dream, can he not?

Any visits by previous Duchesses of Cornwall? Besides the idea that America is Avalon, and Igraine, Uther's wife, was one of the three women in the boat sailing Arthur off...

Yr humble correspondent's research suggests not. Boston has never been frequently visited by the royals (probably still annoyed about that whole revolution thing).
