Tea with the Queen

This picture of the courtyard at Holyrood House this afternoon would make it appear that Alison and I had an intimate cup of afternoon tea with the Queen this afternoon. The Polo made its usual ecological statement. But the reality is that there were 7998 other people just round the corner.

For the second time recently, I attended a royal event and failed to catch a glimpse of the Queen. Still – tomorrow is another day.
