Monty here. Back at the Palace, but yesterday we went on an outing!
I can't tell you how exciting it was! We went in the Roller! (Sometimes I find dropped sweeties in the cushions...) We had a little walkabout at the Abbey. The detectives needed some of my expertise in sniffing the area, to make sure the crack team of Metropolitan Police Dogs had done their jobs. And of course, all was well. I particularly enjoyed a little snackum of Twiglets just behind the gift shop! The choir boys were singing up a storm, much to Kate's delight. It sounded like a lot of caterwauling to me, but you know my feelings on that subject. I am hoping that HM slips me into her capacious handbag tomorrow. Now that she has chosen her hat and sorted out some affairs of state, everything is a little more relaxed at Buck House. It is a little difficult to nap with all the noise out on the Mall, I must say. I do love those Twiglets. Maybe there will be some at tea this afternoon.
Yours,
Monty
