Someone wasn't a big fan of the Royal Family....hence the "die" mustache for the late Diana, Princess of Wales.

Kings Pharmacy was terrific, and a little offbeat. All the usual stuff, plus the occasional one-off (or off the back of a truck?) weirdness.
Um, is *anyone* a fan of any member of the overpaid, inbred, anachronous royal family? No one I know.
