1[on being asked whether she and Prince Andrew might remarry] No. I think our fairy tale will end in the way we are now. He is the oak and I am the cypress. We grow to the light and encourage each other to grow, like Kahlil [Gibran] said in 'The Prophet'.
2I would like to act. I genuinely think it would be a good idea. I have enough experience of drama because that's what my life has been.
3Humility comes from understanding that the obstacles in front of you are not going to go away.
