The Afternoon of the first day in London

We had a lovely tea at The Orangery and had to visit the shops at Kensington Palace. I found this great set of CDs with lovely music. I loved the photo on the package because, as you can see, I have the tea cup. It's part of the Historic Royal Palaces charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace as well as Kensington and Kew Palaces. They receive no funding from the government or Crown.

Oh how extraordinary!

That teacup is GORGEOUS!

How does one go about ordering that CD or teacup? Are they available to the public on this side of the pond?

Once again, thank you for the mini education - love your blog so much, Ruth.

Michele, I wish this was me who made the trip but it was Lady B. We share the site. She started it and I hopped on a little while ago. We usually alternate posts but since she has just had this great trip, I will let her post all of her goodies and tea adventures.
You can go to The Royal Collection site for the china but I can only find the cd at Amazon UK. I am always looking for teatime cps too. Yes, I love the color on that cup and the gorgeous turquoise Fortnum and Mason is using. One of my favorite stores ever!
Enjoying your posts too, ladies.
