Queen Leaves. Maitai Arrives. Coincidence. I Think Not. London Questions

Jump to last reply

I see the Queen looked at our travel schedule and decided to hightail it out of town while we are there. Smart lady! Here's my first of what I hope will not be too many London questions (who am I kidding).

When the royal family leaves during August and September, it looks like they have some special State Room tours of Buckingham Palace...one that includes a garden tour and another that is a really expensive night tour (but you do get a free glass of champagne...I'm a sucker for the bubbly).

Have any of you been on one of these tours while Elizabeth and the gang are frolicking in the Scottish highlands? I actually don't mind paying the hefty fee for the night tour, since it's not something I would ever get the chance to do again.

Opinions? Thanks.
