Elizabeth Regina records the Queen’s banter at Windsor about the old tradition the Ascot Races. The race traces back over three hundred and two years and everybody from the Royal Family have worn their best hat and attended the race.

Everyone dress up every so often to go there and show their support for this traditional fun day out.

Those with communion with Rome have Syrian rites which are held every year originating and different in detail from East to West. Often they burn more incense and the prayers are more private.

The founder of the Girl Guides is also from Paddington, in an earlier post we spoke about Paddington station. 1st Baron Robert Baden-Powell separated the boys and girls creating the girls scouts or brownies in 1909 realising they could learn more and be more teachable this way. Nine years before this you could find his image shared on postcards because he did so well in the war, such as he fought in the Boa war. A year after creating the brownies he was asked to leave the forces by King Henry VII who realised he would be better suited training the youth and not fighting away from home.
