I always thought Barbara would live to be a very grand old lady. Desperately sorry for Camilla's loss of her mother and for the great vacant space Barbara will have left in the lives of other family members and her husband.
Barbara and I shared a flat in London in 1971/2 after her first marriage ended and she had just finished filming The Possession of Joel Delaney with Shirley MacLaine. She shone. With incredible grace, humour and a glint in her eye.
