54. More of Day Four- Part 2….Afternoon Tea at the Palace.
For this Monarchist afternoon Tea at the Palace was a ‘must do’. As you can see I was very proud to be there. Once we had seen the Changing of the Guard we had a bit of lunch then went on a Pre-booked tour of the Palace State Rooms. The rooms were fabulous but what I really looked forward to was having Afternoon Tea in the Palace Garden Café. We all tried a selection of the dainty and delicious pastries and as you can see, I had a cappuccino. This was only day four and with so much more to go I was continually thanking God for this amazing opportunity.
The final verse of A A Milnes poem/song says….
They’re changing guard at Buckingham Palace –
Christopher Robin went down with Alice.
“Do you think the King knows all about me?”
“Sure to, dear, but it’s time for tea,”

You can only go into the Garden Café via the State Rooms which are open for 8 weeks during August and September.
I went back for a second Royal Cappuccino (the Pastries behind were scrumptious)
