Clemmie: “My darling husband. Some of you may not know that on the eve of our marriage I got cold feet. But as I’d already called off two engagements by the age of 21 and was in danger of gaining a reputation for being a bolter, it would have been poor form to call off a third. But the real reason for my wintery feet was that I knew, even then, that his priority would be public life. But it worried a young girl greatly, this wretched thought of eternally coming second. But so it has proven to be. And in due course, our children would have to make their peace with this same fact. We all did, you see. In our own way. And now, today, we are to receive our reward. Proof that our small sacrifice was for a far, far greater good. I give you your father, my beloved husband, the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister”.
