The First Badly Treated Princess of Wales

Here is yet another badly treated Princes of Wales, the first one who was stigmatized just the same as Diana. A bit like Hamlet or don't mention the war, if you get what I mean. Even so, this is an amusing & funny play which I have enjoyed over & over & thankful I can be exactly who I am & be loved for it. Unlike the poor ladies unblessed with the Princess of Wales title.
