Buckingham Pallace carpet accident

Monday, March 16, 2009

A hapless Buckingham Palace footman caused £60,000 worth of damage to a new carpet when he spilled a trolley of drinks.

The accident happened in the Picture Gallery which had just been recarpeted at great expense two days before. The 156ft-long room is the size of two tennis courts.

The footman was wheeling the trolley of hot drinks across it when one of the wheels fell off and the drinks scattered.
The problem, as Queen Elisabeth herself put it, was that the rug really tied the room together.
