Yesterday Prince Charles and Camilla came to the Avon Loop to meet some of our red-zoned neighbours. I saw a policeman standing on the bridge and guessed the royal party must be approaching. When I went out with my camera I was told they were just two minutes away. First came the outriders:
…then several cars, one of which must have held Chas and Millie, but I couldn’t see them. I think I did spot the Governor General. Barbadoes Street traffic was stopped while the motorcade passed through.
Even if I couldn’t see the royals they would have seen me, as there was no-one else around. Plus, they would have had a good view of a certain attractive cottage.
“The royal party passed me by.
To wave, I didn’t even try.”
