Buckingham Palace

Just a few shots of Buckingham Palace. Note the flying flag in the bottom picture. As many of you already know (I didn't:), the flag designates the queen is in.  She apparently didn't get the memo we were outside. Heh. Heh.

AND....

Happy July. Can you believe it?


AND...

Word of the day: Respect.

  5. Gee Sandra, you should have asked me. As an American who tries to keep up with all things Royal, I could have given you pointers, shown you what gloves to purchase, what ugly purse to buy, and how to curtsy when she finally did let you inside the gate.

  6. If Liz had known you were outside, I'm sure she would have invited you in for tea. :)

  11. How rude of the Queen not to invite you in to tea. The second photo of the guard looks like a toy soldier in its packaging. And Rabbit, rabbit, white rabbit to you, too. A day late =^,.^=

  13. I knew about the flags from watching BBC documentaries.
    Where were the Queen's manners? Didn't she realize that she had a famous author in the crowd and didn't offer her tea :)

    Big Hugs ❤❤❤

  14. I would be incensed that the Queen didn’t invite you to high tea:) she should have known you were at her front door. Maybe you didn’t wear a good enough fascinator for her. Happy Canada Day and I am in Vancouver! Off to Granville Island today
