Now this is a job that nobody tells you about. Seems he only works when it’s the State Opening of Parliament and now we have a fixed-term that’s only 5 times in five years! It takes a great deal of skill though. The Man With A Hat On A Stick!
You have to walk, slowly, with a red hat balanced on a stick! The hat looks like a Santa reject and the stick is about as long as an old-style Bobbies truncheon. To be fair, you do need to hold it very straight as it would be a disaster if the hat fell off the stick!
Can’t wait for another State Opening!
