I knew I had read that but I don't have access to The Times - it is behind a pay-wall and so rely on two other sources, neither of which have updated since the 3rd. For the British monarchy website that is not unusual - they can literally go two or three weeks without bothering to update (and some years important dates are still not up e.g. 2017 no Trooping the Colour). My other source normally updates within 24 hours of The Times but it also hasn't updated since the 3rd.

The person running their twitter account needs to speak with the gardeners before labelling the plants incorrectly!

Or the Queen, she seems to know her plants.
Well, they do say that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet, nevertheless, in the video they’ve mislabeled a japonica camellia as a rose .

There are some grape hyacinths labelled as bluebells! The Queen & her gardeners will not be amused.

If only they had just stuck to: "And we have some little blue flowers, and some big pink flowers, and...."

In GB of all places, where gardening is a national sport, to not check with someone who could tell a rose from a camellia.

The person making the film is probably a teenager on work experience.

Did I spot in a recent Court Circular that The Wessex's are also listed under St James' Palace now?

I believe they are yes due to the refurbishment at BP.

Just came back from visiting Buckingham Palace. It’s amazing. I would love some alone time in that place and an invite for dessert because yummy... Pity we weren’t allowed to take photos though.

I’m glad to hear you enjoyed your visit. I’ve been wanting to get over to London to visit the royal residences since the 90’s. I haven’t done it yet.

how exciting! I am glad you enjoyed your visit. I am heading to London in October (I live in USA). I hope I will be able to visit Buckingham Palace. It looks so glamorous and historical.

September is the latest you can visit the State Rooms. Kensington is great too though, but small. My favourite so far is Hampton Court Palace. Have fun in London though. There’s plenty to do here.

If you are interested in seeing royal palaces, it may be worth making the trek to Windsor Castle. The state rooms are worth a look aorund.
