Lady Pamela Hicks (b.1929; née Mountbatten) received the Covid-19 vaccine today in the village in which she lives at Oxfordshire. The ninety-one year-old is the only surviving daughter of Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma (born Prince Louis of Battenberg) and his wife the Edwina Ashley. Lady Pamela is a first cousin of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (b.1921).
Today my mother received the vaccine, from her local doctor, in the local village, all via the NHS.
I asked her if I could post this image, because it gives me a sense of hope. She absolutely agreed. We all need a slither of hope right now, most especially for everyone tightly locked down again in England.
As my mother often quotes ‘Face the sun and the shadows will fall behind you’
