Greta Garbo:Do you like being in the company of others?

Very much so! I don’t really like spending that much time alone, and I see my friends every single day.  I don’t like being in the company of too many people, though.  I’d say any more than 10 and I get uncomfortable.

Joan Crawford:Do you have freckles?

Not right now since we’re just coming off of winter, but usually I get very freckly in the summer.  I have some on my nose year-round but once I spend more time in the summer I freckle a lot.

Vivien Leigh:Do you prefer cats or dogs?

DOGS 100 PERCENT.  First of all, I’m allergic to cats and not dogs.  I like being able to play with a dog and run around with it outside but also being able to cuddle at night.  Cats just lay around and don’t do anything.

“It is with deep sadness that we have to confirm that The Duchess of Cornwall’s brother, Mark Shand, has today passed away in New York. Mr Shand died in hospital as a result of a serious head injury which he sustained during a fall last night. 
The Duchess, The Prince of Wales and all her family members are utterly devastated by this sudden and tragic loss. Mark Shand was a man of extraordinary vitality, a tireless campaigner and conservationist whose incredible work through The Elephant Family and beyond remained his focus right up until his death.
 A statement from Mark Shand’s friends at Elephant Family reads: 
"Today we have lost the head of our family. Mark Shand was a true force for conservation. He was both a legend and inspiration and above all our great friend. We ask at this time that people’s thoughts are with his loved ones. We will miss him always." 

RIP Mr.  Mark Roland Shand * 28 June 1951 – 23 April 2014

4-23-14. The Royal Couple arrived at the RAAF Base Edinburgh to spend the day in Adelaide, Australia. The first stop was to Northern Sound System, a community music center, where Will and Kate met with youth representatives, watched a variety of performances, and even tried their hand at DJing where Kate’s enthusiasm more than made up for lack of ability!
