The Golden Carriage

From Catherine:
The coronation coach. The stuff of fairy tales.

Crazy so much time and energy have gone into a coach which has only been used 4 times.

They have to take the wall of the carriage house down to get this carriage out because it is so large that it can't fit through the door. It takes 2 days to get the wall down so they can get the coach to the street. Last used in 2003 for the Queen's Jubilee. At least she has had the chance to ride in the coach twice-once at her coronation, then 50 years later.

I don't think she will be taking it for another spin Here is the family in front of Buckingham Another thing of fairy tales.

A trip to Hamleys toy store. We escaped without a single purchase although several things caught my eye. This hand blown balloon was made for Hebe when we entered the store. It is supposed to be Harry Potter. Hmmmm? Interesting.
