For people of a certain age, this will always be the Diana Spencer marriage meltdown bench. — And what a sin! Corrupting that child with his horrific straight-leg pant sensibilities. Paging Jess Muldoon. Please save this butter chicken train-wreck. Oh yes!
Yes, it was the one across the pond behind the Trudeaus where Diana sat ( Lady Di’s Chair) and was photographed by Martin Keene. Many pictures and headlines when Will and Kate came to visit, such as: ‘Will and Kate To Exorcise Princess Diana’s Lonely Taj Mahal Ghost’ (Daily Beast), etc.
Close enough for Frank. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5405491/Trudeau-family-larks-Diana-bench-Taj-Mahal.html
BT.com has the photographer Martin Keene explaining the setup in that 1992 picture and the pond in front, keeping the riff-raff 40 photographers at a distance in the days of film photography.
Ah, yes…the Daily Mail, of which The Guardian (pip-pip) demands that we keep quiet…https://www.theguardian.com/media/greenslade/2011/dec/06/dailymail-oswald-mosley
So Miss Gregoire-Trudeau, how much room in the Rideau Cottage for the various “costumes” you bought (you have receipts?? for Canada Customs?) in India for Justin and the Children and yourself?
Will you be visiting the Sareee Shop, the Nayaab Boutique or the Goel shop, etc. etc. in Ottawa for your new daily wear for yourself, the children and Justin?
The Tronna Tsar fashion notes, not mentioning Jessica Brownstein Mulroney at all, said
“Grégoire Trudeau wore a pearl-and-cream-coloured
sari dress made by a Brampton designer,
and the prime minister showed off a silken,
gold-coloured sherwani, a long coat top with embroidery.”
Now we know. 🙂
