"This is old potatoes indeed, but Scotland Yard is taking it seriously enough to announce an investigation."

"And perhaps the most interesting aspect is that this time the allegations have not come from Dodi’s crazed, vengeful father, Mohamed Al Fayed, who spent 11 years accusing Prince Philip of ordering up the hit team to assassinate Diana to stop her from marrying a Muslim (by whom, he claimed, she was pregnant)."

Writes Tina Brown, who goes on to summarize vividly what she knows very well from the research for her (excellent!) book "The Diana Chronicles."

She's dead, Jim. Time to get up to the ship and leave this system.

The British Monarchy usually gets what it wants. Ask Henry VIII's wives what Crown investigators found they had done.

I suspect the time has come to discover facts that make Prince Charles' claim to the throne impossible.

Old potatoes? Really? Who uses this phrase?

Is there some reason why I should care about the Precious Princess?

Is news about her- no matter how stale or inconsequential- just evergreen, forever and ever?
