A Puff of Smoke

A Puff of Smoke

Post by Karen on Sat 19 Feb 2011 - 12:10


I do not think there was a funnier sight than that where the Princess of Wales came forward with the sweep of a schoolgirl and climbed into the Deadwood coach without any assistance. Then the King of Saxony and the King of Greece climbed in after her. The Crown Prince of Sweden was on the box and Prince George of Wales, a dashing young naval officer, was upon the back part of the coach. Prince Albert Victor of Wales, the heir-apparent to the English throne after the Prince of Wales, sat inside the coach and puffed cigarettes alternately in his mother's face and in that of the King of Denmark. Indeed, smokers who have been restricted for their lack of manners in enjoying the weed in the presence of ladies would have plenty of examples to justify their course among the royal members of this group. All of the men smoked their cigars or cigarettes. The smoke was puffed straight into the faces of the ladies of the group without apology from the smothers of protest upon their part. With the exception of the Prince and Princess of Wales, who are always graceful and easy, I think that this group of royal personages made up the most stiff and awkward-appearing group of people that I have ever seen in public together.
