"I once bet Grace Kelly that the park [Hyde Park Gardens] was bigger than her spread in Monaco. I had no idea whether it was or wasn’t but I bet her twenty dollars it was. She got one of her palace flunkies to check it out and I was right! The park’s bigger than the whole of her old man’s principality."

"Did she pay up?"

"Grace was tight with a buck but she always paid up. She sent over the twenty dollars with a magnum of Dom Perignon from Harrods, and a note pinned to an almighty pack of aspirins saying they were for the hangover I was going to get! She knew me too damn well. I do miss her. There aren’t many people I miss, but I do miss Gracie Grimaldi."
