Wonderful, thanks! A bit exhausting--I got sick the third week--but I loved everything I did, as my Facebook Friends are well aware. Neuschwanstein, 3 Choirs opening service including Walton Coronation Te Deum at Gloucester Cathedral, dinner on board the Royal Yacht Britannia, Glamis, Balmoral, Clarence House, beautiful Anglo-Catholic masses at St Mary's Bourne Street and All Saints Margaret Street, Highclere Castle...those were some of the highlights.

It all sounds very exhausting, I think I'd be dead not sick if I attempted such an itinerary! But I'm glad you had such a good time, sickness aside. On the Highclere front, are you aware of a very interesting controversy regarding the patriline of the Earls of Carnarvon (or, if you're being pedantic as is normal for me, of the Town and County of Carnarvon) from the 6th Earl onwards?
PS While awaiting your answer on that, should you choose to give one, here's an interesting (and undoubted, if perhaps unexpected) the present Earl has with a famous historical personage of the 19th century. relationship
