The “rather incongruous” image of an expensive procession marred by the royal regalia hanging out the window like a loose piece of trash was commented on by show host Jayne Secker. Former Black Rod Lieutenant-General David Leakey said it reminded him of the “Antiques Roadshow’s end caption.” The vehicles were on their way to the State Opening of Parliament, which will be led by Prince Charles in the absence of the Queen.
“Rather incongruous image of some of the royal regalia sticking out of the window,” Sky News presenter Jayne Secker said.
“It’s like going to the dump and having to poke something out the back of the window because it’s too long.”
“Surely this was not the plan.”
“I’m not sure about the tip,” former Black Rod Lieutenant-General David Leakey added, “but it reminds me of the end caption for the Antiques Roadshow.”
