So with our second palace visit the excitement levels went up just a touch. I booked the very reasonably priced tickets last February and we have waited patiently for the big day to arrive. Who knows if we might ever get the chance again to visit the gardens of Buckingham Palace?
The day itself flew past in a blur of chimney sweeps (yes I shook his hand), gorgeous food and drink (tiny portions and extortionate prices), royal warrant holders (I made a purchase see below) and bundles of music and uber British fashion catwalk shows. It was TREMENDOUS.
We didn't get tickets for the Gala in the evening, all sold out, still we watched it on the goggle box on Saturday night, good enough for me.
