The Rt Hon Nicholas Clegg MP had an audience of Her Majesty before the Council.
Later The King and Queen of the Netherlands visited The Queen and remained to Tea.
The Baroness Rawlings (Baroness in Waiting) was present at Royal Air Force Northolt this afternoon upon the Arrival of The King and Queen of the Netherlands and welcomed Their Majesties on behalf of The Queen.
No other member of the Royal Family was present for the visit. One assumes it was a very nice Tea.
