The Duchess of York is being unfairly pilloried by a rampant tabloid press in Britain. This cultured lady works tirelessly for charity, and was disgracefully entrapped by the News of the World.

I spent some time with her and friends some years ago on the Appalachian Trail and she never freeloaded, always paying cash as we went.

Shame, shame, shame, on the British Tabloid Press.

Leave the Duchess of York alone, to continue her work.

And leave the Dook out of it, he is a Royal, and would not be influenced by an ex wife with whom he is "best friends". The British Parliament have no right to drag his Highness in to this affair.
