Hello, I'm familiar with all the words in the phrase below, however, I'm not sure if I interpret the integral meaning the right way... Does it imply that she was looking like a queen (=regal??), but sort of "miles off" (=giddy??) and somewhat care-free...(=lighthearted with it)? I'm afraid this is not the best way how to put it, though........ Could anyone give me a clue? I would be grateful. Many thanks. G.M.Malliet: Wicked autumn "I saw her by the children's clothing stall at some point, looking regal but rather giddy and lighthearted with it. Like a queen amongst what she fondly supposes are her adoring subjects - you've seen that look on her."?
