". . . [H]ow proud I was to be by your side on Monday evening.
"The dinner was a huge success & beautifully organised in every sense of the word--I was thrilled to have been invited & also deeply moved by your personal touch wherever [sister Lady] Sarah & I went--the helicopter, presents for my boys, candles in the hotel & flowers . . . but most of all your beaming smile . . . . I am always here for you, Liz, so never forget that!"
