Hobnobbing with the bigwigs !

As you'll know if you've been following her adventures here on her blog, Betty Woodengran seems to be a magnet for the emergency services. She got caught up in the middle of a huge house fire when minding her own business on a recent visit to the park. So when she saw all these policemen and barriers in Dunkirk town centre, she wanted to know what was going on.

It turns out it was for the election of the new French president, Fran├žois Hollande. 

This brush with celebrity got her thinking about her days hobnobbing with the royals at Buckingham Palace's garden party. She had Kate laughing so much she had to hold on to her hat to stop it falling off !

But she couldn't decide which of the royal brothers she liked the most. One thing's for sure - she's looking forward to watching the Jubilee on TV and, who knows, maybe getting caught up in a street party ! The Queen is her favourite style icon !


  1. Haha I love the picture of Granny Woodentop with the Princes! xx

  2. This whole entry made me laugh so hard that my husband asked what I was giggling at! I had to read it to him!
