Splendid stuff Sean. I particularly liked the glimpses of where things went wrong in the carefully choreographed ceremony - e.g. where the bearded gentleman in diplomatic uniform finds his way blocked by Foot Guards and bobs back and forward furiously until he is able to force his way through, or where an officer of Household Cavalry faced with a similar irritant simply spurs his charger on.
