And this is the nub: for Mantel was quite right to say that female royals were ‘at the most basic . . . breeding stock, collections of organs’ — ugly words, but she is dealing with an extremely ugly upper-class mentality which, in the case of the Prince and Princess of Wales, saw a suitable young virgin selected as an ambulatory incubator while her husband, duty done, carried on playing Hide the Duchy Original Sausage with a woman he would never breed with’
Mantel has launched he most biting attack on the mysogynistic royals i can remember……’female royals are colections of organs’ to be used as ‘ambulatory incubators’…..this will be hard to shrug off……….
