So that's why you have escaped to Spain! Fair enough, I can dig that.

Well... not really. Mainly for the climate and the Mediterranean and ...something different, having grown up gone to college and worked in London all my life it felt like time for a change. There's a strong monarchist minority in Spain who are just as nutty about their royal family as the Brits are about theirs.

Just as the climate changed... (I've been hearing about the sunny London these past few years) Do they (the Spanish monarchists) have a Lady Dee of their own? :) Never got a chance to live in Europe myself - almost went to grad school in Hungary, but got a better offer from California.

Princess Letizia is the closest equivalent. Beautiful commoner marries into royal family. She gets a lot of coverage in the glossies.

Aha... Thanks! Like your gift shop series, btw :)

Climate! Ha! Sunny London is still cold, damp and miserable enough during the winter, whereas here it's quite mild. Find a corner out of the wind and you can sunbathe on Christmas day. Also the days are very short in the winter and far too long in the summer in the UK. I prefer the slightly shorter summer days and longer winter ones here in Spain. Who needs daylight at 4am in the summer? I'd rather have the extra daylight hours in the middle of winter.
