BREAKING NEWS - The Royal Balcony

May 2018

Some may have heard that we have a certain high profile wedding occurring here in the UK shortly.

Sadly, despite some previous Royal associations, the team at the Oldnautibits HQ did not receive one of the "golden tickets" to attend the ceremony at Windsor Castle. We have, however, used our connections to invite HRH Price Harry and his bride-to-be, Meghan, to join us for a few days of R & R. They will be able to enjoy the West Country air before their big day.

We suspect Harry will be wearing a somewhat grander uniform for the wedding. Although he tells us he is happiest in this rig from his days serving with the Army Air Corps; you could even say it "Suits" him perfectly!

The whole team here wish the Happy Couple a wonderful wedding and a long, happy married life together.
