Our physical relationship lasted 20 years including after he married Diana and was still seeing Camilla. Newspapers round the world carried the story - most on their front page.

Initially Alicia was a royal collector dappling in basic china, books, dolls, and photographs. When young Diana Spencer came on the scene, Alicia wisely realized the British Royal Family was becoming 24-hour news. Her crystal ball believed that fascination could become a lucrative business; therefore, she created Everything Royal in 1980's though she continued working part-time in her other two fields. She wisely retired in 1992 focusing her total attention on Everything Royal.
Alicia began taking extended buying trips to the UK; purchasing entire royal collections; advertising in major British Royal publications; and through a friend, became close to a number of Royal family members.
