A visitor to the Prïncess of Wales at Sandringhain saya: "The mere look of the hall, with a stuff ed brnin standing there, handing you brandies and sodas, cigarsor cigarettes, upon histray whenever you pass by, has a unique air of comfort. Everybody who visita Sandringham is aware he must pass through two ordeals; he must write his name with a few original linesin the visitors' book and submit to testing his weight on the weighing machine. The sitting rooms at Sandringham are among the most cbar uring in the kingdom. There is almost always the sound of distant piano playing somewhere, with the accompaniment of cries from a perky parrot of 'God Save the Queen!' The princess has a special love for animáis, and the many pets at Sandringham all combine to contribute to the pleasant domestic air of the place."
