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.

No problem from memory it was used by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh for the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in 2011,but I also think it has been used since.

This is excellent news! There is nothing like the old Elms for that beautiful vase silhouette. It turns out Edinburgh has done an excellent job of slowing the spread of the disease. There is a bit about this in Wikipedia and elsewhere on the internet.
