There's a photo of India's sons helping with hurricane relief.  The boy on the right looks SO MUCH like a Battenberg --the nose and the mouth.  He looks like Princess Sophie of Greece, Philip's youngest sister.  Incredible how these genes still come through.

I loved Pamela Hicks' books, Daughter of Empire and India Remembered (written with her daughter India) - she has had an interesting life. And reading about her mother Edwina, I came to admire her, too, her generosity and will power.

ETA: I see only now that the books have been recommended before, sorry - but I second that recommendation! :-)

Pamela Hicks has also done a podcast with her daughter called
The India Hicks podcast. Its certainly shows how the upper classes treat their children differently!
