Annus horribilis is a Latin phrase, meaning "horrible year". It is complementary to annus mirabilis, which means "wonderful year"; however, annus mirabilis is a traditional term, while annus horribilis is of relatively recent coinage. The expression was brought to modern prominence by the Queen's speech to Guildhall on November 24, 1992, where she said "1992 is not a year on which I shall look back with undiluted pleasure. In the words of one of my more sympathetic correspondents, it has turned out to be an annus horribilis." This "sympathetic correspondent" was later revealed to be her former assistant private secretary, Sir Edward Ford. The unpleasant events which happened to the royal family in this year include: 1) the separation of the Queen's second son, Prince Andrew, Duke of York, from his wife, Sarah, Duchess of York ( March19); 2) the divorce of the Queen's daughter, Anne, Princess Royal, from Captain Mark Phillips (April 23); 3) the death by suicide of her nephew, Prince Albrecht of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (April 23); 4) the publication of Diana, Princess of Wales's tell-all book Diana: Her True Story, revealing the problems in her marriage to the Queen's eldest son, Charles, Prince of Wales, particularly his affair with Camilla Parker Bowles (Sunday Times, June 7, 1992); 5) the publication of photographs of the Duchess of York sunbathing topless with her friend, John Bryan (August 20); 6) the publication of intimate conversations between Diana, the Princess of Wales, and James Gilbey from a tape recording of their phone calls (August 24); 7) a fire in Windsor Castle, one of the Queen's official residences (November 20); and 8) the separation of her son Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Diana (December).
