Texas Woman Convinces the Princess of Wales to Chat with Her Aunt
With all the hubbub over the Coronation of King Charles, one small moment made it all worthwhile for one Texas woman.
Debbie Hoover of Texas, flew out to London in celebration of the King's coronation. She was among thousands of fans who stood outside Buckingham Palace throughout the weekend in an effort to catch a glimpse of the King or any members of the royal family.
Well, on Friday, one day before the coronation, Hoover got the surprise of her life when the Princess of Wales got near. Not only was Hoover able to talk to the Princess of Wales, but she somehow convinced the Princess to talk Hoover's aunt who lives in Tennessee! Chi Chi Izunda of the BBC tweeted out the sweet exchange.
Okay, this is kind of adorable!
Hoover's aunt, who broke her leg according to the Tweet, can be heard in the background thanking the Princess for her well wishes as everyone around them cheered.
I will admit, I think it's kind of cool when the royals go out to shake the hands of their loyal subjects; it kind of makes them seem like they're just regular people like you and me. But they're not. They're royalty.
However, I do have a lot of questions surrounding this phone call. Like: how did Hoover manage to convince the friggin' Princess of Wales to talk to her aunt who lives in Tennessee? How long was Hoover out there waiting? Is this breaking any sort of royal protocol? If Meghan had done this, would people think it was just some sort of stunt?
Stunt or not, it was kind of cute that the Princess of Wales took the time to talk to an American.
