A Right Royal Bin

We arrived back from Norfolk on Friday after a week with the usual variety of weather but at least I got to take some photos.  While we were there we called in at Sandringham where the royals all gather for Christmas each year and had a pleasant walk round the gardens and park in the sunshine, although we did not go in the house.

The mews and stables have been turned into a museum and the cottages are very pretty which is where I saw this. You are looking at "The Queens Royal Dustbin". The only thing missing from the bin is the coat of arms on the side, although it could have been on the side up against the wall. I didn't like to move it for fear of being arrested for tampering with Crown property. I waited to see if the Queen would pop out in pinny and turban to scrape the leftovers from Phillip's lunch in to the bin, but perhaps she was out while we were there.

Never let if be said that really interesting subjects are missing from Shutterchance!

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I expected a big hand of authority on my shoulder at any minute smile
You have opened our collective eyes Brian: for which we thank you
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, just a sign of how the other half lives smile
No wheelie bins for her thentongue.
Brian Walbey: Probably nobody has told Norfolk County Council the Queen is still using an old bin, I won't well if you won't smile
Doesn't look as if they take reccycling very seriously ... there should be three or four bins there.

Brian Walbey: They say the Queen is careful with her money Richard, I suspect she and Phillip do a bit of fly tipping on dark Norfolk evenings smile

Now I've seen it all - the Queen's Royal Dustbin! Her Maj is obviously not into recycling - where's her wheelie bin?

Brian Walbey: I suggested to Bill that Norfolk County Council still haven't caught up with the Queen yet, she's never at home as far as I can understand !
