Excerpt from Kings and Queens I Have Known
As far as the other Queens and Royal Princesses mentioned in my writings are concerned, I have had the honour of approaching them only at times when prepared for any striking impressions they might make. I carried into their presence a heart eager to receive all the emotions of the moment and a spirit aglow with desire to note as much, hurriedly as possible, from what might pass during such thrilling interviews. I have met almost all the reigning sovereigns of modern Europe and their Consorts, and have much to relate about them, since I soon became a keen observer of every Court I stepped into; yet, whatever I have said or thought of Kings and Queens I have known is derived from the experience of some transitory event, and gathered in the strained mood into which we are apt to fall whenever something extraordinary happens to us.
On the other hand, the image of the Queen of Roumania has shed a radiance over my whole life.
