Hear Ye! Hear Ye! All Hail the Visiting Dignitaries!

How great is it when you receive a phone call about an unexpected pleasantry?

Yup the end of last week we came home to a message on the Royal Machine of Messages. We were asked if the Royal Family would like to partake in a preview session for a not yet viewed or released movie.

What this entails is the following:

  • Call to affirm that we shall be attending and receive a special code for entrance.
  • Arrive at the Royal Theatre 1 hour prior to viewing of the movie.
  • Register with the Captain of this endeavour and be brought over to queue up and await further instructions.
  • After about 15 to 20 minutes of waiting in line, receive a ticket for entry into the screening session.
  • Finally, we are asked to proceed into the theatre, of course first we are informed that no cameras, recording devices, cell phones or video recording devices are allowed to be on and or utilized at all during the viewing.
  • So, after a quick search and the Princess’s purse being inspected it is off to find a seat. Ah but of course you can sit anywhere you like, just not in the “Reserved” Section. Oh the inhumanity of it all! Such impertinence!! How dare they treat His Highness and Royal Family this way!! “OFF WITH THEIR HEADS” I say!!

    Alas, being the benevolent despot that I am, and seeing that they are visiting dignitaries arriving on such short notice from the “Land of Fruits and Nuts”, aka California, I will cut them some slack this time!! tongue wink Please, No slight intended to our friends and family dwelling in Sunny California, just a poor attempt at royal revelry. 

  • Once we found proper seating, it was time to settle back, relax and watch the movie.
  • Once the movie is complete you are asked to fill out a 2 page questionnaire about the film. Keeping in mind that all comments and opinions are greatly appreciated.

    All in all the whole process takes about 3 to 3 and a 1/2 hours to complete.

    Upon finishing the paperwork, and having consumed a vastly too large amount of fluid for the royal bladder, it was a quick dash to the room of kings, knights, squires, pages and all other males and leaving the Queen and Princess behind to finish their works. Unbeknown-st to myself and the multitude of serfs attending this grand event, some of the Stars of the film were in attendance as well. It only stands to reason that they would be their as the film is based on events in the life of one of them.

    Can You Guess Who I Am?

    The movie “Gracie”was based on this lady’s life.

    Just for grins I will give you until tomorrow to see if you can answer who the mystery actress is!!
    Ah we see his Royal Highness has a sense of humor!!

    Until Tomorrow My Subjects!!
