I love the people and the people love me, so much that they restored the English monarchy! I’m part Scottish, French, Italian, a little bit Dane but 100% party animal - Champagne? Spaniels I adored, named after me too. Like me they were fun with a nutty hair-do! Is today my birthday? I can’t recall! Lets have a party anyway because I love a masked ball!
