my walk in London is disrupted
Another disruption today, in Central London.
I'd just come out of a meeting and back into the street, when I noticed it had changed somewhat since the time I'd gone in.
There were new barriers everywhere and a noticeable police presence. That's when the marching band appeared from behind one of the major monuments.
Then I noticed the sawdust on the ground just as the clop of hooves denoted the presence of the Household Cavalry.
Of course, if the Household Cavalry were out in all their finery, then you could be sure that someone significant wouldn't be far behind.
I spotted the shiny coach being pulled by white horses. And then I noticed the crown.
Yes, it was the Queen passing by, on her way to the Royal Opening of Parliament.
