Anyone seen a Royal?

I was once in the same room as the Duke of Edinburgh and thought that this would make a good anecdote. You’ve guessed already that it didn’t.

So many people have seen, talked to, met or dined with a Royal that if there is a list of Royal name droppers, I am very near the bottom.

Tommy Cooper was in a line-up to meet the Queen after a Royal Variety Performance. When HRH reaches Tommy, he asks her if she would answer a personal question. Only as personal as she would allow came the royal response.

He asks the Queen if she liked football, to which she honestly replied that she didn’t

In that case” says Tommy, “can I have your Cup Final tickets”.
