This is what the Princess says when we have Yorkshire pudding for dinner. It is her favourite food, ranking ahead, even, of smarties. This is necessary background for what follows.
Little American girl in cafe: I’m 5 and I’m from Tennessee.
Princess: I’m 4 and I’m from Brussels.
Little American girl: I’m going to live in Brussels.
Princess: But I’m really Irish.
Little American girl (slightly baffled but riposting gamely): I was born in New York.
Princess (delightedly): Where Yorkshire pudding is from!
