Dr (Margaret) Winifred Rushforth OBE (1885-1983) (née Bartholomew) was a Jungian psychoanalyst who spent much of her career in Edinburgh, Scotland. For many years, Rushforth was a close friend of Sir Laurens van der Post. In the early 1980s, Rushforth's book Something is Happening was gifted to Prince Charles by Alick Bartholomew (a relative of Rushforth's) who assisted Prince Charles on the re-decoration of Highgrove House. In March 1983, Prince Charles and Princess Diana visited Dr Rushforth in Edinburgh. They spent an hour discussing Dr Rushforth's theories, on dreams and spirituality, over afternoon tea. Dr Diana Bates, who was also present, later remarked that it was evident how very thoroughly Prince Charles had read Dr Rushforth's books and how deeply he had thought about spiritual matters. wiki
