Not me, officer, my royal protection officer was driving......
Chum of mine was on Royal Protection duties as a superintendent. One day, driving on one of the narrow roads in Windsor Great Park he spotted an unfamiliar car coming in the opposite direction. Assuming it was a visitor he carried on, and as the other car drew close it was forced off the tarmac on to the grass to pass. Glancing across he was horrified to see The Queen driving, accompanied by her protection officer, who was laughing his head off. Later, said officer told him that as they passed the Queen remarked "That man **** , who does he think he is!" As my chum said, "I kissed goodbye to my chances of an MVO that day!"
