I was one of Crown Prince Alexander's guests at the funeral, and I can assure you that the King of Jordan, the Emir of Kuwait and the Duke of Kent WERE NOT THERE .... The Crown Prince and I talked about the lack of British representation, and it is a political issue for the UK -
If you read the articles you will know I was there.
