Royal PDA

Simon Doonan Horrified by the Queen’s Hug

If I were craving intergenerational girl-on-girl intimacy, then I would have tuned in to an L-Word rerun.” The Barneys creative director was so unnerved by the royal display of PDA that he took to venting in a heated column: “I’m a nouveau riche fun-loving commoner who expects the folks at the top of the pyramid to act with tight-assed, gravitas-riddled arcane decorum. Is that too much to ask?”
