So the Queen's schedule supercedes that of the general public.
Rotten for you, but she hadn't made her mind up on the day to have a banquet. The notice period usually runs to 3 months.

In the Long Gallery, the Dutch artist Jacob de Wet painted 110 portraits of Scottish kings, both real and legendary, from King Fergus I to King Charles II.
