EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: Is it too late to ask Donald Trump to the Coronation?
Is it too late to ask Donald Trump to the Coronation? Coincidence or not, the ex-president will be in Scotland to play golf on May 6 and could be available if King Charles has a spare invitation.
But where will he sit? When Joe Biden attended the Queen’s state funeral in September he was placed in the cheap seats near the back rather than the dress circle.

Trump added humbly: ‘In Real Estate, like in Politics and in Life, LOCATION IS EVERYTHING.’

At least former Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams turned up in 2015 to shake Charles’s hand.

While Camilla, 75, is unlikely to embrace going grey any time soon – her stylist Jo Hansford is against the idea – her late Majesty was known to have given up the hair dye aged 64. Up until 1990, the Queen was said to have relied on hair product Chocolate Kiss, before gracefully letting the silver through.

Rupert Carington inherited the job of Lord Great Chamberlain from his late father Peter, who dreaded it so much he appointed Rupert his deputy. ‘I’ve been going to meetings about the Queen’s funeral for 30 years,’ he says. Peter hopes to follow in the footsteps of his great-great-uncle the 1st Earl Carrington and present King Charles with gold spurs during the Coronation. His ancestor, Edward VII’s closest friend, had another distinction. He introduced the monarch to Lillie Langtry, who became the king’s mistress.
When Dame Edna Everage opened the Harrods sale, she recited a 12-stanza poem in praise of the store, delaying the start by an unprecedented two minutes. As the shop took £17,000 per minute, Edna’s verse cost chairman Mohamed Al-Fayed £34,000.
