The Dame hopes their Royal Highnesses will understand her policy of editorial integrity and not withdraw the bbq invitation.
My Dearest Dame
I realise that you would love nothing better that to be invited to 'Cocktails' with Will and Kate.
I suppose you won't publish this for fear of becoming a social outcast.... we all know what a fearful old snob you are.
The Royal Household at Kensington Palace (the second home of William, who has just given up his job to spend more time with the children) and other minor Royals has just told the Royal Borough that they intend to rent out Perks Field for a 12 day food and drink event for 15,000 paying persons per day, to include dancing, drinking and live music from 11.00am to 23.00 hrs.
Seven days a week! The rent to be charged for the field is secret. But the going rate for renting out the Reform Club for one month for private hire is £1.5 million so we can only guess what William will be trousering!
Tax payer funded Kensington Palace is in the midst of Kensington Gdns and home to a clutch of Royal free loaders. Perks Field (the big field alongside Kensington Gdns) is a tranquil oasis and an extension of the park, but it is off-limits to the riff raff due security considerations and its use as a helipad for the Royal flight.
Now this public asset is to be turned into a profit generating enterprise with no financial benefit to the park or the public and with a huge downside of noise and nuisance, and general desecration of what is supposed to be a peaceful sanctuary for stressed Londoners.
William and family seem to be flexing their muscles.
The large field on the other side of Kensington Palace that borders Kensington Palace Gardens, is currently being planted with gigantic hedges (at gigantic cost) to shield these precious people from public view.
The new Royals seem to forget that they are publicly funded public property and need to sing for their supper.
Chairman Amanda Frame of the Kensington Society and Chairman Sue Price of the Friends of Kensington Gdns have long campaigned against the abuse of our parks by noisy commercial interests (concerts and the like).
Only the police and the Noise and Nuisance Department of the Royal Borough are allowed to object. Incredibly, the public and residents are not allowed to comment.
Leader Paget-Brown, a man of common sense, needs to ensure that his Officers deliver a swift veto.
Respectfully, dear Dame
Lord Protector Ol*****r Cromwell
