‘What is it like to meet the Queen? Or serve on the Royal Yacht Britannia when it’s being used for a honeymoon?’ These questions, and some other royal secrets, were ably shared with Welland Group members last night by William J French, former Royal Butler.
William has also worked for employers including the Rothschild family, the Saudi Royal Family and Nicole Kudman, actress (and thereby lies a story of the chicken fillets … ?).*
Several MHWI members attended the annual group meeting, this year hosted by Caldecott WI. An entertaining evening, with a delightful, homemade tea and rounded off by a game of Pointless, where several of our members scored low, just missing winning the competition.
*Am sure we will be booking William for an MHWI meeting to hear his full story.
