Prince Edward and Sophie stay at Marriott - and get all Boycie's VIP furniture


After rising to fame as Boycie in TV’s Only Fools And Horses, John Challis might be considered part of our theatrical aristocracy.
But he is still no match for royalty, as he discovered on a recent visit to Sunderland, where he has just finished starring in pantomime as Captain Hook in Peter Pan.
On returning to his luxury suite – with a sea view – at the four-star Marriott Hotel, Mr Challis found to his astonishment that staff had removed all the furniture, leaving only a king-size bed.

The Earl and Countess of Wessex had checked in unexpectedly to the only other spare suite and naturally rose to the top of the VIP pecking list.
As their room did not have such high-quality fittings, the hotel staff sprang into action, commandeered Boycie’s furniture and spruced it up, according to a hotel source.
The couple had no idea about the room-changing antics, which involved moving a table and chairs, sofa and writing desk.
It is understood that Mr Challis, 67, accepted alternative furniture with gentlemanly good grace.

A suite at the hotel, which is two miles from the city centre overlooking Whitburn Sands and has a pool and fitness centre, normally costs paying guests £175 a night.
The Countess – Sophie Rhys Jones before she married Prince Edward – was in the area to open a learning centre in nearby Peterlee, County Durham.

She is a regular visitor to the North-East as a fan of Sunderland Football Club and patron of the SAFC Foundation, the club’s registered charity which works to get young people interested in education and training.

 
On this trip she also opened the refurbished Empire Theatre, where Mr Challis had been performing.

But last night he was keen to distance himself from the bedroom farce. ‘This happened a month ago and it’s not really something I want to talk about,’ he said.

‘The Royals seem to get a bashing every day over something, so I don’t think I’ll get involved.’

Comedian Steve Walls, who appeared in Peter Pan as Hook’s bungling side-kick Mr Smee, said he was amazed that Mr Challis had said nothing to his fellow cast members about the Royal furniture swap.

He and I shared a dressing room at the theatre so I was probably closer to him than anyone. He certainly never breathed a word about it to me.’
Hotel spokeswoman Elaine Ellis said yesterday that she could not discuss the impromptu refurbishment of the Royals’ room in any detail.
‘For reasons of data protection and privacy, Marriott is unable to comment on any individual guests or operational matters,’ she said.
‘However, any changes to a guest room during a guest’s stay would be made for essential operational reasons only and would be handled in such a way as to ensure that a guest would suffer no loss of amenity in their room as a result.’

Harry moves in with Chelsy as she gives him keys to £1.5m Belgravia home for weekends

Prince Harry has moved in to Chelsy Davy's £1.5million London apartment - another sign that their relationship is back on track.
Harry is training as an Army Air Corps helicopter pilot at Middle Wallop in Hampshire during the week, but he is increasingly using Chelsy's Belgravia flat as his weekend base.
Chelsy has given him a set of keys to the three-bedroom apartment, and also allows his Royal Protection Officers to stay.

Royals take taxis to official engagements as the Queen pulls rank on costs

Member of the Royal Family are using black taxis to travel to unofficial engagements instead of expensive fleet cars as the Queen tries to keep a lid on costs.
Minor Royals Viscount Linley and Lady Sarah Chatto already regularly book Dial-a-Cab taxis.
Now financial advisers have devised plans for more senior Royals to use the cabs wherever possible - including Prince Harry and Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie ...............................

How would Chelsy afford an apartment in that part of London? Her parents own it I am sure.

Prince Charles blasted over plan for 2,000 homes in Green Belt
Prince Charles is under fire from two conservation groups he champions over plans to build on Green Belt land and to bulldoze hedges that shelter wildlife.
He has been accused of abandoning his rural credentials after his Duchy of Cornwall estate offered to create 2,000 new homes on rolling pastures just outside the historic city of Bath.

Critics say the Duchy stands to make tens of millions from the development.
The Bath Preservation Trust, of which the Prince is the patron, has written to him urging the Duchy to back 'brownfield' building instead.

The trust's Jane Brown said: 'The proposed development would be an irrevocable change to the setting of the city, it would be a carbuncle and a matter of great regret. I don't know what the Prince knows or doesn't know, but we are surprised the Duchy is so ready to make this land available.'
English Heritage has also objected, along with villagers in Newton St Loe at the centre of the land, many of them Duchy tenants.

Curate the Rev Catherine Sourbut said: 'Are the Duchy's principles really so easily swayed by the huge pay-off they stand to receive? What of the Prince's public agenda on environmental concerns?'
Ron Morton, a campaigner against Green Belt development, said: 'Prince Charles is rapidly becoming the unacceptable face of the Establishment.'
Charles, right, has also been criticised by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust over plans to build a 'green' village of up to 200 homes near Newquay. It fears that hedges will be dug up.
Cheryl Marriott, of the trust, said: 'I'm disappointed they're bulldozing so much of the hedge.'
A Duchy spokeswoman said: 'It is the Government's decision to build more houses in the Bath area.
'As a major landowner, the Duchy has a responsibility to respond to housing needs.
'The plans for Newquay involve very little real loss to hedgerows and new hedgerows will be planted.'

She reinvented herself as a children's author after her split from Prince Andrew 14 years ago - but now Sarah Ferguson's literary career appears to be struggling after industry figures showed her latest title has sold fewer than 200 copies in Britain.

Mind the gap, Ma'am: The Queen checks out the Tube on the day her £10m Bentley breaks down

She’s not averse to slumming it in first class on a public train, for short hops.
But the Queen is the last person you'd expect to see nipping through the gates on the Tube.
Yesterday, however, she was spotted nosing around Aldgate Underground station.

Officially, the monarch was just there to meet staff in the ticket hall and view a memorial plaque for the July 7 bombings.
But it probably wasn't a bad idea to get acquainted with the system - particularly as she suffered a transport crisis later in the day.
After her visit to Aldgate and a nice lunch at the Gherkin skyscraper, the Queen's armour-plated Bentley broke down. The vintage motor, presented to her in 2002 to mark her Golden Jubilee, simply wouldn't start.
As she clambered back out, an aide gesticulated to a Metropolitan Police Range Rover escort vehicle and helped the 83-year-old monarch climb inside.

She then drove off to her final engagement of the day just a few minutes away at Tower Bridge.
One onlooker who saw the entire episode said: 'It was all a bit awkward.

'The Queen's obviously never experienced an engine break down before and looked a bit stunned that the car wasn't working.

'She got out and an aide told her she was going to have use a police Range Rover.

'She just hopped in the back and continued on her journey.'

A Buckingham Palace spokesman confirmed last night that an incident had occurred.

'There was a problem with the Queen's Bentley during her tour of the City of London,' he said.
'The Queen got into a police Range Rover which was trailing her vehicle and went on to the next location without delay.
'The Bentley did eventually start a few minutes later but it was most important for her not to be late for her next engagement, which is why she went on ahead. Staff are currently investigating what the problem was.'

The Queen has been using the Bentley in question as her principle transport for state and ceremonial occasions for almost eight years.
Designed for a minimum lifespan of 25 years and 125,000 miles, it runs on LPG, weighs almost three and a half tons and has several unusual specifications - including specially lowered seats to accommodate her large collection of hats.

The rear of the car is also fitted with laminated glass with an unusual reflective coating which allows the Queen to see  -and be seen - without the temperature rising intolerably.
The Queen was in the City of London yesterday to meet some of the behind-the-scenes workers who keep the capital functioning - and there wasn't a banker in site.
 The Queen is not unfamiliar with using public transport. Shortly before Christmas she was seen here boarding a train from Kings Cross to Kings Lynn in Norfolk
Her first stop was to meet staff, most of whom are volunteers, at the RNLI Tower Lifeboat Station on the River Thames who have saved 183 lives in the last eight years and rely entirely on public donations to carry out their work.
She then moved onto Aldgate tube station where she met station staff in the ticket hall and viewed a memorial plaque to mark the July 7 bombings.
Looking remarkably bright despite the drizzle in a red tweed coat and velvet trimmed hat, the Queen then went for a lunch of salmon, slow cooked lamb and English rose champagne (which she declined in favour of her preferred Dubonnet and Gin with a twist of lemon)  in the landmark Gherkin building.
The lunch was cooked by young people from the Hoxton Apprentice, a group of charitable restaurants which provides apprenticeships for people who have been unemployed or lost their way in life.

Afterwards she took a stroll across Tower Bridge - much to the surprise of passing motorists.

Accompanied by her lady-in-waiting and equerry, the sprightly monarch strolled on the pavement past a queue of traffic, prompting astonished drivers to wind down their windows in disbelief.
