Cocks: I think most people hear the Hocus Pocus The Walking Squad abbey road shirt moreover I love this word ‘fanfic’ and they think of the stories that are like, ‘Snape and Hagrid carry on a torrid love affair in his cabin.’ It’s a much broader genre than that. Heather and I, I’m going to knock on wood, don’t really fight. We maybe get moderately irritated with each other for five minutes, occasionally, but we really have a very healthy relationship. We just kind of talk it out. We work from a big outline, so we have agreed with what is going to happen throughout the book before we even start writing it. Otherwise, I think that would really make things difficult. I have to admit that I do have an irritating habit that I’m sure drives Heather crazy. It’s unintentional, but in the course of figuring stuff out, sometimes she will pitch something to me, and I’ll say, ‘Nope, we’re not going to do that,’ and then three weeks later I will be like, ‘What if we do yada-yada?’ And it’s what she pitched me. Then she’ll be like, ‘That’s my idea.’ You just sort of lose track of what was said and when. As preeminent royal experts, how do you see the state of the monarchy now, both in light of Harry and Meghan leaving, and it being a thoroughly white institution that isn’t very keen to acknowledge its colonial history? It’s interesting to think how much that is maybe going to rest on Charles. The impression that I’ve gotten over the years is that there is a lot of enduring love or respect for Queen Elizabeth, because she has reigned so long. Her face has been on the money and most people have never known it any other way. There has never really been that fondness for Charles. But Charles as a person has been more progressive on a lot of issues, like sustainability and the environment. Of course, he has not been vocal about Meghan and racism and Black Lives Matter, and I know there are a lot of issues tied up in that with what’s political and what’s not. I know that it sure feels like they ought to be saying something. I’m going to be extremely interested to see what happens over the next 15 years. I don’t think it’s out of the realm of possibility to look at the world and the British royal family and think, Is there really a place for this in the modern era?
