lilly langtry

It is said of Lillie Langtry that when Edward Albert (then Prince of Wales, eventually Edward VII) complained of the costs of maintaining her as a mistress, she had a snappy, ah, comeback:

The Prince once complained to Langtry, “I’ve spent enough on you to build a battleship”, whereupon she tartly replied, “And you’ve spent enough in me to float one”.

Fair’s fair!
