And Princess Margaret said No

 I've just been interviewed for Cambridge 105 Radio about my forthcoming open days for Ely Arts Festival and Cambridge Open Studio.

The interview was recorded in our garden so I was able to show one or two pieces of memorabilia that we could talk about.

I 'd made a scrapbook  in 1984 to record my first Open Studio and the interviewer was most interested in a letter I had received from Kensington Palace.

As I was charging admission with the proceeds going to Save the Children fund, I had the mad idea of inviting it's president to the opening.

I received a charming letter from a lady-in-waiting who stated that Princess Margaret would have to regretfully decline as she had another engagement.

It's true, she had - I saw it in  next day's newspaper.
