I have never met a tourist who has/was invited by royalty for a cup of of tea or a GT with the late Queen mum.

Staying slightly off subject….

Ah, but Shakeel – just go to Buck. Palace on a Saturday morning when there is the changing of the guard. You can’t see an inch of pavement from the heaving number of tourists wanting a glimpse of the Royal Guard doing their thing. Same with Windsor Castle.
I used to take foreign student groups for ‘London Weekends’ and these two places were always at the top of their priority list. Madame Tussauds next, to have a photo with the wax works of Princess Diana :wink:.
The whole royal family thing is a massive draw to tourists, in the UK at least, even if they don’t get an invite for a G&T. 🙁
