1910: Among those taken to see the funeral of Edward VII was Lord Kinnoull’s young daughter. That evening, at bedtime, the girl’s mother asked her whether she had said her prayers. She hadn’t.
“I don’t mean to say them to-night.”
“Well, because it won’t be any use, as God will be too busy unpacking King Edward.”
