Doesn't Balmoral have them too? I wonder if all the BP apartments have heaters...I would rather light the fire.

The colour of the room's walls are lovely and calming.

It looks like a portable heater,I've seen them too at Balmoral!

The room is beautiful,I think a nice fire would have complimented that wonderful fireplace.

I would too, but you are not allowed to light a fireplace in central London.

The Queen and Duke of Edinburgh are having lunch at Chequers with Prime Minister David Cameron. It's the monarch's first visit in 18 year
John Major was the last prime minister to invite the Queen to Chequers, a grace and favour Tudor mansion in Buckinghamshire.
The Queen's only other visit to Chequers, which houses Cromwell memorabilia, was in 1970 when she lunched with Ted Heath and Richard Nixon.

The Queen and Prince Philip enjoyed lunch at Chequers today, for the first time in two decades.
David Cameron said he was 'delighted' to invite them to the Prime Minister’s country retreat after unearthing old photographs of a 1970 visit by US President Richard Nixon.
After a tour of the house, the rare occasion was marked by the Duke of Edinburgh planting an oak tree in the grounds.

Here in my area of CA we have 'no burn days' which are declared when the air quality is below a certain level. Spare the Air
I assume London has an outright ban for similar reasons.

Here are details of the legislation enacted to solve the huge problem of London 'pea-soupers', fogs which killed thousands in the 19th and early 20th centuries

The Queen is really cute...I just want to pick her up and put her in my pocket. She looks so small in these photos.

The queen look completely non-plussed. That's the face you give a real estate sales person when they get nothing right!

Well one is only a Head of Government and not a Head of State so maybe it is an acknowledgement that the Queen is of a higher status than a mere Chancellor. (Germany also has a President who is their Head of State and Chancellor is the equivalent really of the Prime Minister).
