Bond St

The very ornate Royal Arcade that links Old Bond St with Albermarle St was built in 1878. The "Royal" part of its title came about after Queen Victoria bought some shirts there. Do you think the high street shops that Kate supports will be changing their names some time soon?

This post should also be a clue for those of you stuck on the sticky one from yesterdays post.

Fabulous photo Mo! I imagine there will be a lot of significant changes to come with the new,more fashionable royals.
