Synopsis (contains spoilers):

  • Catherine was a a self confessed 'Wild child' - if Amy Winehouse was a 9 she was a 8 or 8.5. 
  • She was caught with cocaine in her Chelsea flat, it scared her enough that she stopped taking illegal drugs.
  • Friends said the incident would remain on her record.
  • Half a century later she works for a law firm
  • The annual conference is taking place in Las Vagus - will she be allowed in with the cocaine incident on her record?
  • US boarder control involved photos, finger prints and perspiration (the last time she did fingerprints was in the Knightsbridge police station all those years ago)
  • She was allowed in - it appears some things really can be left in the past.
