Dowager Countess and multiple spouse Rain (present surname goes here) is gleeful ahead of society celebrations marking the death of Princess Diana.
"She was frightful to me, really. Flung me from the minstrel's gallery at Allsorts once, with an impressive half Nelson. I almost took out a Ming I'd just sold to an Arab sheik!" recounted Rain over 'white tea' on the rocks at the Ritz. But beaming she added: "However, ten years on it's time to let bygones be bygones. Particularly since I'm in a position to do it and she's not."
Despite a wide selection from which to choose, Rain will be the only former Countess Spencer to attend the memorial service.
