After listening to the excellent Richard Allinson covering the Breakfast Show/setting me up for my day today, my schedule/employer requirements then took me to Buckingham Palace this afternoon, where I spent the whole afternoon with various members of the Royal Family.

It was a fantastic experience which hopefully I will be repeating later on this month.

Cool Mark.

My Royal interfaces have been ever so slight. Long time ago Princess Anne walked about three yards from where I was standing, oh and I saw a helicopter flying over our town once and my dad said the Duke of E was in it. Confused

Gonna give us anymore details Mark?

Sorry no John.

But have to say they have a fantastic biscuit selection for guests-no nonsence on this front.

Interestingly enough I am back at the Palace on Wednesday this week-one of 192 guests attending a very special function.

The event finishes with a toast the Queen over a sherry!

No doubt you'll be using the opportunity to recommend Richard Allinson for a K. Have you considered meeting the Pope when he's over here to talk about Beatification of your hero?

I've not been to the Palace(yet) but I've worked with one Royal and met a couple of the others, interestingly- they came to see me. Smile Have a good time at the party Mark, oh, and if you see Prince Andrew poke him in the tummy and let him know that I'm still smiling.

I was back at Buckingham Palace all day today. Very Happy

Over lunch I said to "Queeny" have you been listening to the excellent Richard Allinson sitting in for Chris Evans this week on the breakfast show.

She advised she had-she said I think he is doing a great job-no talking over the records Mark.

I advised, as MIS suggested, perhaps a Knighthood for RA in the future-she smiled and scribbled it down in her little notebook. Wink

Well at least we know who Mark really is now- he must be the President of South Africa or one of his three wives... one for cooking, one for cleaning and one for...shopping!
