The Duchess: Contoversy Reigns
Writer of the original book titled The Duchess, Amanda Foreman was just on CNN complaining about an old photograph of her, in a state of some undress, which has been doing the rounds of certain amused media pundits.
The source of this embarrassing, coquettish photograph? Why, Amanda’s own website of course!
Elsewhere on British TV she's been complaining about the trailer for The Duchess, which despite all the protestations from Keira Knightley etc explicitly uses photographs of the late Princess of Wales to sell its wares. 'I thought it was a Youtube spoof,' explained the baffled authoress.
