Quotes

[first lines]
Eddie: Sorry I was so long, darling. Had to clear out my wardrobe. All those horrible, revolting, unfashionable clothes that I simply would not wear, darling, because they are not in fashion. I put them in a pile on the floor to throw out.
Gran: I thought you put them on, dear.
Eddie: [about Gran] What's that doing here?

Edwina Monsoon's full name revealed
31 March 2009 | by (Camden Town, London, England) – See all my reviews

Edina's full name is revealed as Edwina Margaret Rose Monsoon. It is highly likely that the names Margaret Rose were chosen because that was the full name of Her Royal Highness The Princess Margaret (1930-2002), the younger sister of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (born 1926).

The character Edina was supposedly born on 6 August 1960. Exactly three months earlier, on 6 May 1960, Princess Margaret married Anthony Armstrong-Jones in Westminster Abbey, London, England, the first royal wedding to be broadcast on television in the UK. The then 29-year-old princess was already well known to the British public and, indeed, overseas, and she was to many a very attractive woman. Princess Margaret was a colourful figure and the royal wedding captured the public imagination. There were probably a number of girls named Margaret Rose around this period.
