Sketch of Savile by artist and entertainer Rolf Harris.
OK, it’s not news, we all know Savile had very close links with the Royal Family, but yet again, tonight I stumbled upon some stuff that really rams it home.
I did my usual scan of the days news, posted a predictable piece on Max Clifford, had a read of Spivey’s site, popped over to the Tap Blog, and then found myself reading an article on a Driving School site??? It was about the auction for charity of Saviles possessions earlier this year. Included in the items were a collection of christmas cards. Well well, they were close weren’t they.
Christmas card with picture of Prince William, Prince Charles and Prince Harry from Prince Charles to Sir Jimmy in which Prince Charles writes ‘give my love to your ladies’
Christmas card from Prince Charles and Camilla Duchess of Cornwall
This one from Diana is addressed to Sir James Savile, Stoke Manderville Hospital.
Birthday and Christmas cards from the Duke and Duchess of York and with photos of Beatrice and Eugenie
One Christmas card features a Thelwell-style photo of the young Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie wearing riding hats and jodhpurs at a stables
How’s about that then!
