Buckingham Palace sources have revealed that the Queen and other senior members of the Royal household have expressed concerns that the Duchess of Windsor may have a death wish.
Such is the level of concern, its expected that a personal counsellor will be made available to the Duchess anytime she displays any negative behaviour.
Adverse comments have already been voiced over the choice of the then Kate Middleton's dress for her wedding to Prince William.
Many fashionistas remarked that the gown, made by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, bore a striking resemblance to the one worn by Grace Kelly on the occasion of the former movie star's marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.
Given that Kelly subsequently died in a car crash (as of course did Prince William's mother Princess Diana), then you can see a common theme emerging.
The Queen is now believed to be in a complete state of stress when it was announced that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are to go on their first official tour to Canada and have been booked on a Buddy Holly Airlines flight.
The Queen's mental health wasn't improved by the news that the Duchess has asked for an itinerary to be drawn up for a subsequent visit to Yemen, Bahrain and the Tora Bora mountains.
And when Lizzie found out that her newest daughter in law carried a photo of Charles Bronson in her purse, she kicked one of the corgis over the hedge.
