Tis a shame that anyone ought to die in pursuit of a cigarette, but I wish to put this in some sort of perspective. First, for those who are wondering
if this person was a member of the Royal family, I believe the answer to be a resounding NO. He was the brother of Camilla, the Princes wife, but
other than that held no title in particular as far as I am aware.
He was however, as are all persons who orbit the monarchy, bloody well loaded, which is probably why he had the wherewithal to not only manage his
own affairs, but also give heavily to charity concerns, like the pachyderm related organisation at whose event he died.
This is only newsworthy, because of who his sister is. Otherwise the story would have been just another obituary in a high class society publication,
circulated exclusively amongst the social class comprised of persons with double and triple barrelled surnames, and whose children get Christened as
Tarquinius, or Maximilian.
