The Queen

Today I am working in Cardiff , in one of my outfit's Regional Offices. This is pretty normal SOP and was in every way a routine Thursday.

I took the train from BS5 to Cardiff and left the railway station as normal. On emerging into the Welsh air a large crowd was abundantly obvious along with lots of Rozzers, plenty of Range Rovers and a stretch Bentley. I asked a policeman what was going on and he informed me that The Queen was due ! I was very content to wait about and have a bit of a cheer and an atmospheric moment.

Twenty minutes later , Ladies in Waiting emerged along with various civil holders of office, and then The Queen herself. And some double hard looking security types. The crowd cheered and I joined in. HM worked the crowd and said hello to school children. She passed right in front of me waving and beaming.

Here is my picture of the moment.

I had not seen HM before ( not officially, or in circumstances I could divulge mind you), so it really was quite cool!
