Teatowels, The 80s and Air-brushing

A couple of years ago I picked up a very cool Di and Charles teatowel at an oppy. (I just need to say I am SO ahead of my time!)

I whipped up this wee cushion for the couch out of it last night.

Does it strike any of you as ominous that Diana is already portrayed as a bit sullen and sulky looking and Charles seems to have been airbrushed to a younger,  more sauve, handsomer version of himself? Reminds me of the election posters for Ms. Clark a few years ago (no offence intended to her or either of the royals!).

I am quite liking the latest addition to our growing cushion collection.
