Eco-worrier, coffee addict, labourer/ carpenter's mate, mother of two (Prima and Secundus are not their real names, but there has to be some pay-off for having done Latin GCSE!), married to the King and pretending to live in the 1940s. Always got something up my sleeve. Not necessarily a handkerchief.
