Garden Party at Buckingham Palace
Thursday 6th June 2013
Unfortunately, my wife and I had to pull out of this special event, owing to the Mistress spraining her ankle the night before. I do not think we were missed among the 8,000 guests but it was a shame to miss the affair which has grown considerably over the years. I believe in 1986, when my father was Master Poulter, the guests numbered some 500, and by 2007, when I was Master Poulter, the numbers had risen to 5,000; quite a rate of inflation!
