Ma'am as in Spam


No, it's not a joke.....what has .the Bishop, the Flower Show Secretary and the admiral! Got in common?
Well they all went to a garden party at Buckingham Palace yesterday that's what they have in common. How amazing is that?,
My sister was one of the chosen few who donned their best tucker and alongside The Queen Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Princess Anne  sipped tea and ate afternoon snacks on the manicured lawns of Buckingham Palace.
Not bad for a Prestatyn gal eh?

Not had much access to internet at the moment so comment/replies may be thin on the ground ( Stephenson please note)

    If one must indulge in tea-sipping, that is definitely the place to do it.

  12. I bet your sister had a great time! Hubby and I went to one of the garden parties in 2014 (he was nominated for his years to the railway industry) and we had a fab time people-watching!

    1. I think he's a Queen's Chaplain. There are several of them and one of their duties is to attend garden parties and talk to the guests.

  15. How perfect your sister looks for the occasion. Good on her for being invited to Buckingham Palace. I had tea with the Queen way back in 2005. Now how's that for a South African? My mother was a British Royalist and I followed suit. xx

  16. Nice outfit for the affair. Looking good, Ann! (sorry if I misspelled - I have CRS)

  17. Is it considered proper to drop bits like this into casual conversations? "Oh, the last time I had tea at the palace with the Queen ..."

    ReplyDelete
  18. I don't know about "polite" but I think I might not be able to control that urge ... Oh yes, when I was having tea with the Queen, so and so said ... blah blah blah " ...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I am SO impressed. And I love the frock on the lady behind your sister!

  20. Ann looks lovely and such an appropriate outfit for a " flower show secretary " ... Tea with the queen one week and then back to reality...manning the tea tent for the Prestatyn Classic Car Show the next.

  23. Cardinal, not the bird kind behind your sister?

  24. I like your sister's outfit.

  25. I'm most impressed! You'll also be able to pepper conversations with lines like "When my sister was having afternoon tea with the Queen, she said...."
    I note that Ann has very stylish clothes sense - no baggy trackies for her!!

  26. This American gal thinks that is a super honor. Your sister's outfit looks very appropriate for the occasion.

  27. I like her outfit, and I am absolutely green with envy! Or is it yellow?

  30. Proper posh she looks too :-)

    Congratulations to your sister .... I do hope you will doff your cap and be suitably subservient when she next visits .... AND get the best crockery out ;-)

  31. You need to bow low next time you see her!
    My broadband is playing up and BT are supposed to be coming on Monday - but they made two appointments last week and failed to keep them so am not waiting with bated breath.
