Sandringham is owned personally by the queen, unlike Frogmore . Balmoral is also under her personal ownership.

The article is making a false comparison between privately owned Sandringham & Crown Estate owned Frogmore Cottage. It's also making a false comparison between the Queen paying for her own repairs and the taxpayer paying for Harry & Meghan's.

The article's coverage of Harry & Meghan is twice as long as the coverage of Sandringham, despite them having nothing to do with Sandringham so the article is actually using the Sandringham repairs as another opportunity to reprint criticisms of money spent on Frogmore Cottage.

Well, if it wasn't touched since 1870, it's time for some repairs

I have to say, Sandringham might be my personal favourite, amazing gardens, jacobethan architecture, simply amazing.

Also, maybe the discussion about the cost of Frogmore Cottage renovation should be in a different thread - it has nothing to do with beautiful Sandringham.

A great idea. Great way to give people a safe social distancing night out. And also to bring some people to the estate safely as well.

Drive in movies have become popular during covid here. In mall parkinglots and other areas with the space.

I was so very disappointed when drivein cinema's disappeared from our landscape. Such fun and eating popcorn and blaring the horn when something funny or un pc was shown. Smuggling your mate in via the boot. Remember that!! Nowadays most people use SVU's, not so easy for smuggling giggling bodies.
But in those good times political correctness wasn't even a term then.
Ahhh a glimpse of the good old days returning for a brief period.

I adore the english gardens, but frankly their palaces are all on the horrible side; even if the building as such is haveways nice - the interiors are tastless and uncomfortable.
