Thank you Queen. Am I the first here? Shall I pour?

Spudlet Thu 22-Aug-19 16:00:19

Milk and no sugar for me please! brew 👑

Blimey, that private jet thing reeeeeally isn’t going down well, is it? blush

frugalkitty Thu 22-Aug-19 16:04:59

Straight to the hard stuff for me please, I'll have a G&T......thanks for the new thread Queen

QueenOfTheAndals Thu 22-Aug-19 16:05:37

Please can we keep this thread private jet free for now? I'm not sure what else can be said about it that hasn't already been said and there are no end of other threads discussing it on MN at the moment!

Here's a rather sombre Max at Princess Christina's funeral.

wine as a toast to Princess Christina.

Rhubarbisevil Thu 22-Aug-19 16:08:26

Oh, I can’t access the page. Anyway, wine.

Oops, try again @Rhubarbisevil

That's a very interesting dress code - Swedish flag? I think it's rather lovely.

itswinetime Thu 22-Aug-19 16:12:14

Tea?? I'm still I. Holidays here 🍹🍸 anyone ?? Balmoral strikes me as the kind of place you are met with a proper drink 😉

Nope and in part I can see the royals do as I say not as do attitude as been rubbing people up the wrong way for a while but it's just annoying that instead of a proper debate it's being used as a stick to beat Harry and Meghan in particular! They are all at it I bet Charles has never flown commercial!

itswinetime Thu 22-Aug-19 16:13:08

Sorry crossed posts with queen 🤐

QueenOfTheAndals Thu 22-Aug-19 16:13:42

I have no doubt you'd be met with a stiff one @itswinetime, though the DoE is getting on a bit now...

TokyoSushi Thu 22-Aug-19 16:19:11

Thank you, will abide by the jet free rules!

QueenOfTheAndals Thu 22-Aug-19 16:21:34

@Myimaginarycathasfleas Just coincidence I think, as Princess C was Dutch. But bright orange probably wouldn't have gone down well!

GotToGoMyOwnWay Thu 22-Aug-19 16:23:02

wine Princess Christina

GotToGoMyOwnWay Thu 22-Aug-19 16:23:35

Thanks for the new thread, Queen. Time for some tarten spotting.

AudacityOfHope Thu 22-Aug-19 16:33:09

Here we are again.

Bring on some bloody fashion so we can all stop moaning grin

itswinetime Thu 22-Aug-19 16:37:01

Do we have any dates for the autumn tours? When do things start to pick back up?

ColonelCathcart Thu 22-Aug-19 16:44:11

A former royal protection officer was quoted in the Times saying BA had plenty of experience handling VIPs. But obviously they won’t fly every route.

Will Beatrice be the first royal to marry someone who already has a child? Charles and Camilla are second marriages and much older so not quite the same.

AppleKatie Thu 22-Aug-19 17:03:20

Checking in, but not like you do in an airport obv.


Myimaginarycathasfleas Thu 22-Aug-19 17:23:59

Oops, showing up my lack of foreign royal knowledge! You're right, Queen, orange wouldn't have struck the right note.

But in that case there was an awful lot of royal blue and yellow on show.
