    Really enjoyed that talk Natalie and Claire.
    They certainly took everything but the kitchen sink with them on their travels.
    It must have been a logistic nightmare getting all the arrangements together, no electronics to email to the expectant hosts to see if everything was in place and going to plan!
    You can see how a Royal Visit could cause a great deal of debt on the hosts, bankruptcy even, perhaps the odd nervous break-down too… I nearly have one getting things ready for a couple of relatives coming to stay for holiday 🙂 I will remember that next time I get a panic on-it’s only 2 coming to stay, NOT 600 plus lol.

    Wow, I would have hated to be one of the people who packed them up! I didn’t realize that they hauled all that stuff! Thanks Natalie and Claire.
