[QUOTE=rob2008;2323929]Does anyone know where the South Drawing Room is in Buckingham Palace?

I had thought it was the south west ground floor room :

but on closer inspection it definitely has a different fireplace to the room used for the interview.

On this ground floor plan the room above is called the dining room. It's possible that the room used for the interview is the one called the library between the dining room & the Council Room (now called the Bow Room).

The only other logical location for a "south" drawing room would be in the Blore wing on one of the three principal floors overlooking Buckingham Palace Rd.

It's puzzling because I think those rooms including the dining room mentioned are not in the private area of the building. I kind of assumed the south ddrawing room would be in the front section - looking onto the Mall. On one floor are the suites of Anne and Andrew. Thanks for the reply.

Yes it could be - the front section is the Blore wing which I mentioned as being a possible location. If it is the Blore wing/front section it would presumably be on one of three principal floors facing south over Buckingham Palace Rd. On the floor plan that would be bottom left:

Here's a picture of where I mean:

Thank you. I think you are probably right - maybe the top floor. If only there was a floorplan as I don't think Emily Maitlis' will divulge.

Looks good. At least one bottle will need to be tried under the guise of due diligence!

Have another, Your Majesty

Apparently Buckingham Palace Gin is now available to be sold to the public, and it will be served to guests at future Palace functions. There’s a picture of HM drinking some clear beverage from a glass that is either water or a BIG serving of the house gin! I think that’s what Town and Country wanted me to think, and I did get a small chuckle from it.

Comes in a really handsome bottle, too.

I'm not a gin drinker but if I was, I'd be wanting to order this stuff right quick! I think the Royal Collection Trust has hit on a winner here.

Looking at the picture of the Queen taking a drink, with what I know about the Queen and how things usually are done and served the "correct" way, I'm going to wager my bet that she's drinking water. The article states ""The recommended serving method," it read, "is to pour a measure of the gin into an ice-filled short tumbler before topping up with tonic and garnishing with a slice of lemon." If that's the correct way to drink gin and Dubonnet, then that's the way the Queen would have it served up.

Me? I'm less a stickler for convention and a Mason jar would do.

Great looking bottle. In the interests of due diligence, a bottle will need to be acquired soon.
