Charlotte documented the process on her new TV show, Charlotte’s Dream Build, which debuted on January 11. The show helped raise funds for the estate.

Before she added: ‘If we don’t open in June I’ll be in a lot of trouble.’

Blunt’s sharp memory of his royal duty

Having watched over the Queen Mother’s coffin as she lay in state in 2002, former lifeguards officer James Blunt has been deeply affected by his daughter’s d*ath.

‘I stood guard at the Queen Mother’s funeral, so the Queen’s funeral brought it all back, of course,’ the You’re Beautiful singer told me at the E&O restaurant’s 21st birthday party in London’s Notting Hill.

‘I was standing guard at the Queen Mother’s funeral, so the Queen’s funeral took everything back’

Blunt, 48, who has two sons with wife Sophia Wellesley, 39, who is the granddaughter of the 8th Duke of Wellington, adds: ‘It was very emotional and very moving bringing it all out.’

Unlike some, couples queued for hours to watch the Queen lie in state.

Nadia Hussain, the winner of Bake Off, says she would understand that food shops are increasing because the cost of living is going up. ‘If people are stealing I believe it is not because they are greedy or selfish… it is because they are beyond understanding.’

A drop in pounds puts Petra up.

The pound has fallen to a 37-year low against the dollar, but Sam Palmer, husband of Formula 1 heiress Petra Ecclestone, at least sees a silver lining for him.

‘An amazing time to buy in the UK for Americans,’ chats the estate agent (left with Petra) online.

Former vintage car salesman Palmer, 38, who married Petra, 33, in July, is trying to sell his 14-bedroom London home for £175 million.

Queen’s bride Lady Pamela Hicks, 93, was pushed in a wheelchair by her daughter, India Hicks, at Monday’s funeral.

And now she is determined to attend the coronation of King Charles. ‘She may be the only living figure to have attended three coronations,’ says India.

Lady Pamela was eight years old when she was taken to see the coronation of George VI in 1937.

Flogging used Orders of Service at the Queen’s funeral is bad enough, but now a seller on eBay is asking £2500 for a ‘new’ one. Strange, because Alasdair Abrens, director of printers Barnard & Westwood, assures me that ‘any [surplus] Copies are either shredded or locked away in our safe.

And Duncan Geoffrey, head of communications at Westminster Abbey, told me that his own unused copies are ‘under lock and key in our security room’.

Be careful Jupiter?
