I was pretty critical of her for snapping at Mary at this christening but these last few posts have definitely given me more context as to the nature of their relationship, and these stories/pictures have made me genuinely sad for her.
Did Mary not think that this child she was mistreating would grow up?
In many photos of her as a child, Izzy was clearly genuinely happier when she was with Fred - and noticeably less so with Mary.
Kids are very real. It's hard to direct them to play-act. You have to wonder how Mary treated her behind closed doors, if Mary treated her this way in public knowing that the public was watching closely and with Mary being so conscious of her public image. This was the best Mary could treat Izzy.https://aboganindenmark.f...1/01/pullingizzyshair.jpghttps://c8.alamy.com/comp...se-sydney-aust-WWPWE7.jpg
But Izzy is growing up. She's already exacting revenge on her mother by simply being more beautiful than Mary.
Izzy will be the one stealing the magazine covers without trying. What's Mary going to do? Lock her up in the tower?https://editorial01.shutt...-editorial-11905030ag.jpg
