Leaving the Queen’s Royal Carriage
Dang! They never did ask me to paint their wedding! And then, should some watercolorist have been asked to paint the Royal Wedding, no doubt it would have been someone appointed by the Queen herself. Little does HRH know that way back in about 1955 yours truly laid eyes on Her Majesty on the Thames River. I truly did. Couldn’t tell who was who. Her sister, Princess Margaret was along with her.

I was invited last night for a Royal Wedding sleepover. Great fun. Just before the crack of dawn, we had quiche and muffins with marmalade, tea served from a silver teapot, brown sugar pound cake and strawberries dusted in powdered sugar. I painted the paintings above, plus more, while watching the Royal Goings-On on the kitchen telly. Jolly good fun!

Me! Painting the Royal Wedding
