But really, what does Uncle David know? He wasn't ever crowned, let alone anointed -- which is why he was able to give everything up. He never lived as both a divinely-anointed monarch and as a human. Remember how that moved him to tears during the coronation episode?
Note that Margaret's pearl earrings are gone here -- she's just wearing simple hoops. Will she leave the pearly uniform of royalty behind for true love?
(We get long, lingering minutes of paint being dabbed on canvas in the last episode, and we can't even get a conversation here? Also: Margaret and her mother definitely talked through all of the issues surrounding the Townsend marriage. There are letters between them on the topic reprinted in the Shawcross biography of the Queen Mum. I can't believe we didn't get a single conversation between the two of them on the matter.)
Stay tuned later in the week for a discussion of some of the jewels we didn't see in season one!
