Speaking of Princess Margaret, I recently saw the movie "The Queen's Sister" on TV. I was young enough at the time to not have any interest, but she was a real doozie if even half of the film is true.

When I was watching Zara complete in the Summer Olympics I couldn't help but wonder if Zara mucks out her horses' stalls like her mother has all these years? Anne once stated that they were her horses, her responsibilities. I hope she passed that on to her children.

Jusr as you get it in your mind, the line of succession, someone in the royal family gets married and has children. Then the line is messed up again.

Many years ago when Queen Elizabeth gave birth to Prince Edward, there was a small news blurb that when Prince Philip married Queen Elizabeth, he signed an agreement that he would father five children. When Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced I remembered that and wondered if there was such an agreement between them also.

Yes as soon as Prince Williams child is born he or she will be bumped up the line so it does always change as you say .

I'm guessing that Grantham is a title as Addie has said but I can't find anything to confirm that . Downton Abbey is the castle (in real life it is Highclere Castle ) .

That was my conclusion, also. I can't find a thing Googling Grantham, thought it seems a popular question.

What a heartbreaking episode last night, sigh. I wonder if I was Nora how I could ever forgive Robert. I wonder if she ever will.

It wasn't what I expected at one point. I figured a harrowing ride to the hospital was in store and months of touch and go. I would have preferred that...
