Gripping Final

Since rain has temporarily ceased play at the Wimbledon men's final, I 've taken the opportunity to comment on the royal box: I spotted HRH The Duke of Kent, TRH Prince and Princess Michael of Kent, Lady Annabel Goldsmith, the Governor of the Bank of England, the Rt Hon Peter Hain MP, Bjorn Borg... and a Hyacinth Bucket lookalike seated directly behind him.

Lady Annabel is Lord Londonderry's sister and daughter of the 8th Marquess of Londonderry. Lady Mairi Bury, incidentally, who lives at Mount Stewart in County Down, is her great-aunt.

P.S. Also present among the dignitaries were TRH The Prince and Princess of Asturias.
