A conversation between the wife of George IV'. Queen Caroline of Brunswick ( 1768-1821 ) and a modern day interviewer. An uncommonly ﬂamboyant woman who would undoubtedly be taken to the hearts of the media today. Caroline's arranged marriage to George was an unadulterated failure. After separation the king was horrified by her behaviour which became even more outrageous. culminating in a street-parade in a short skirt on a shell-shaped carriage with her lover. A story which could add a bit of spice to your winter lunch-time. I PRINTMAKERS WORKSHOP GALLERY 23 I Union Street. 557 2479. Mon—Sat Illam~5.3llpm. ATrio ol Printmakers limit 29 ()ct.
