    The motorhome is described as perfect for ‘feet-up relaxing and watching the world go by’. Certainly the Queen and Prince Philip were impressed by the £45,434 machine.

    They’re far too busy – and yesterday’s visit to a caravan factory in Bristol was yet another engagement in their schedule.

    Brilliant!

    We looked at one of those - they are nice inside.

    Very ugly though I think.

    Good to see that Bailey have fitted an external radio ariel.
    Pity other manufactures using the Fiat cab can't admit the fault.

    Not a big fan of the royals - but how does she manage to look so interested at these events?

    The paparazzi will of course be at the camp site, stationed in the bushes by the elsan point for those priceless snaps of Brenda's first experience of "splashback"...
