April 25, 2011
Good morning from London! This is the big week when Wills and Kate get married, and I will be filling you in with my wonderful behind-the-scenes (under-the-table, more accurately) insights. The security around Buck House has been tightened, and there are more policemen walking the drafty halls, which means extra biscuit crumbs and the occasional crust from a sandwich coming my way. HM has been trying out some new shoes. DofE is having a new uniform made. Kate, who has lovely ankles, comes for tea often, and is trying to befriend us. She is learning the value of fish paste sandwiches over cress. The others will squabble about almost any little snackum, but I hold out for the good stuff. Pour a little Devonshire cream over just about anything, and I will give you the keys to the Palace. Well, not literally...

Your trusted London Royal Correspondent,
