Up at 5am, drove to Chippenham and then caught the National Express to London just £11 return, arriving at Victoria Coach Station hailed a taxi to St James Park then a fairly long walk to my allotted gate, by this time raining heavily. After passing very strict security, was given a goody bag and then handed a what I thought was PG Tips, just opened it at home and it is a beautiful cup & saucer, then collected my hamper the contents were impressive and gluten free. We were handed ponchos and in the end I wore it otherwise would have been soaked through. The first parade was then underway, it started to dry up and then Duke & Duchess of Cambridge & Prince Harry walked all the way down The Mall. Wow Prince Harry shook my hand saw my chain of office read out loud The Welsh Pony & Cob Society and said so you are Madam President. What a moment.
Then The Queen and Prince Phillip were driven slowly down The Mall to tumultuous cheering.
A second parade then all was over, so wended my way back to the coach station and was home by 8pm
