I laughed when she said that and thought how sad the President and First Lady missed out on the carriage drive down the Mall that comes with State Visits. The Americans arrive by helicopter landing on the lawn . . . not half so grand.

The headline made me chuckle - "the Queen is seen for the first time since Harry and Meghan tied the knot" - makes it seem like it's been awhile, not a day.

I actually 'read' the DM article and I have to be honest, they really are sleazy. Harry and Megan's photo replaced the one of Anne and Tim. It didn't, she just rearranged her family photos as she constantly does. Anne and Tim's photo got moved more to the left and you can see the top of the frame and the tip of Tim's uniform cap above one of the chairs.

Anyone who has taken note of the rooms in which HM is photographed will know that the surfaces are liberally sprinkled with family photos and that she also tends to shuffle them around and I love that she isn't into matchy-matchy picture frames. However, the DM obviously has a staffer who job is to declare who is in favour and who is not according to the photos. It fits in with their ethos of for every winner there has to be a loser and HM signals this in such ways.

Next time I'll stick to the pictures which in all honesty are consistently the best.
