Royal Warrant Holders Banquet Nov 17th 2011

No pictures allowed in the Banqueting Hall, so here's one from the Ladies'!
We sat at Top Table with the Duke of Edinburgh. On being introduced, he announced that he uses Bibliophile a lot and how long our newspaper is. That's what keeps me busy I replied.

Meeting royalty

Very excited today as tonight we are attending Guildhall for the Royal Warrant Holders annual Banquet. It is a white tie affair - tailcoats and tiaras.

Friends and colleagues in publishing have been thrilled that we are meeting royalty. HRH The Duke of Edinburgh is guest of honour and as the only Grantee this year from him we are being introduced have been and asked to sit on top table! Only 900 guests watching... Below with husband Martyn.
