The Royal Shedding

Who were the real victims here? Was it the Duke and Duchess of York (Fergie and Andy in layman’s terms) who announced their separation on this day in 1992? Or was it people like me who based their entire romantic and emotional lives on this fairytale couple?

I even got married whilst wearing a sailor suit I got from Argos which was a bit tight, admittedly, (it was possibly designed for a child) but it definitely gave me a distinct Prince Andrew look in a certain light. The couple eventually divorced in 1996, but remain close friends. Unlike me and the man from Argos when I tried to return the uniform.
