We had gone along to interview her in her dressing room at a TV studio. A very non-smoking dressing room. She proceeded to enjoy many a fag by blowing the smoke into an empty Evian bottle that she would re-screw after every puff.
When studio folks detected her secretive fagging, she crawled on hands and knees, cigarette in mouth, into a smoking area outside so that some waiting photographers wouldn’t spot her. A bit like the time she was being called to the stage at her own showcase but wanted to finish the pint we were enjoying at the bar…
A class act if ever we’ve seen one. Happy birthday duchess!
