She loved the music, the concerts, she really got going on that. Marvellous occasion with Prince Charles, because, you know, they came for the opening of the extension and Jacqueline [du Pre] and Danny Barenboim were playing, and after the concert she was very busy getting drinks ready for the musicians and the little lobby where you come in by the door was absolutely full of Prince Charles, aged about 18 or something, completely surrounded by young admirers, all touching his sleeve and asking about cello – she said he thought cello was a rather squeaky instrument, that she didn’t think he was going to go on playing it – and anyway, in comes my mother from the kitchen door, laden with a tray, elbowing everyone out of the way. Well she was very anxious always to behave properly in the right circumstances and had no idea that it was Prince Charles she was elbowing out of the way so we managed to pull her leg about that one a great deal.
