CV RESUME

meeting the queen and prince phillip was an interesting day

the queen asked a few questions like 'why are you doing this?' etc

 

phillip was more interested in how i transported them to jersey in the back of a vw transit van upside down

 

a friend put a yellow rose in my lapel earlier in the morning - and the queen wore a yellow dress- we were co-ordinated! the friend did not know she was to wear yellow.

 

It was a great day to meet Her Majessty Queen Elizabeth
