The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee + Newzroom Afrika + Lavender’s Blue

Jubilate Everybody

We prefer tropical to topical and views to news, but sometimes you just gotta break with tradition to mark tradition. As the second age of Gloriana reigns down upon us we’re celebrating an Elizabeth, Princess of Greece and Denmark’s certain anniversary. We’re in clubland of course. The best balcony save for Buckingham Palace. And what a flypast! Or in our case, flyover. Battle of Britain Spitfires, Lancaster Bombers and Hurricanes are the first of 71 planes and helicopters roaring across the sky. Glasses are raised, cheers erupt and anthems sung from our terrace, soon echoing down Pall Mall. Apaches, Chinooks and Typhoon fighter jets blaze the heavens above. Next, C-130 Hercules (missing its crew: Prime Minister Johnson was last seen applauding Trooping of The Colour with the fuchsia clad Carrie). The best really is saved for last. Nobody in living memory will ever forget the sight of the two most important digits of the day. You get them. Seven. Zero. And no Royal event is complete without a Newzroom Afrika broadcast from  South Chelsea! Newzroom Afrika is of course South Africa’s leading 24 hour 100 percent black owned television channel. Didn’t we say the best really is saved for last?

Thankyou for this Stuart. I saw the flypast from Lavender Hill but this is wonderful. See you soon. 💋💋mwah mwah

A damehood awaits you Mary!

So privileged to be part of The Mary Set.

No more staircase calamities please, Neflix want you but not for the new series on Netflix!

Trisha was very complimentary about you too darling but our lips are sealed we don’t want you getting a big head! Can’t wait to see your new designs. Always. XXX

A big thank you to everyone for your messages on and off screen. And a massive thank you to Mary Martin London. Not forgetting all the fantastic crew at Newzroom Afrika. Forget BBC, NA is where it’s at! LVB X

Somehow you come across very intelligent and, dare I say, slight off the wall as they say. Brilliant.

This is brilliant Stuart. You have managed to combine humour with serious reportage. We need you on BBC, C4 or ITV instead of the boring tossers who constantly are on our TV screens. I hope you are out celebrating.

Praise indeed! Thank you Daisy. It was great fun doing it. We are given the subject title only the day before live transmission and no questions beforehand so it is always somewhat interesting to see how things go. But sometimes the planets line up… Day 4 of partying! Hope you have had a great Jubilee too and see you soon. Thank you Newzroom Afrika!
