I went to hire some costumes for the Christmas Cornucopia at a special place in London last year, where you can find just about every era in clothing that ever was. Afterwards, I was waiting for a taxi in the foyer, when I noticed that they had a  guest book, where some very interesting people signed their names….
This signature wasn’t signed by Elizabeth  Taylor or Elizabeth Hurley,  or   any old common or garden Elizabeth Elizabeth!
When I was four years old I was taken to see this Elizabeth opening a bridge in my hometown, and I still have a vague impression of  a very big black Rolls Royce and little  Union Jack flags  being waved everywhere.
Didn’t get to meet her Majesty again until I was fifty five.  Has anybody out there met the Queen of England?! Do tell…
