Please, Charles, could you post the entire article? When I click on the FT link I get a demand for a subscription… very pricey.

I thought they looked like the orbs that the Queen has…. so many references. I feel that her scouring EBay is a form of mudlarking for her….
Dear Leslie, I think and hope I have. The link worked for me which is why I posted it, but have now photographed the article and posted it. Charles
We saw it first thing this morning here in New York and thought it a wonderful, warm, insightful tribute to her.
Glad you’ve made it to New York ! Maybe to vote. Good luck. It’s a historic time. Charles
