Ryan Parry got a job in the Palace looking to uncover flaws in their security and worked there for a whole two months. During that time, he was well-placed to hear all kinds of gossip and stories about the Royal Family. One of these stories came from a fellow footman who served the Princess Royal.

He said: “As part of a footman’s duty you had to, first of all, take a calling tray into a royals’ private bedroom.sonos sonos One (Gen 2) - Voice Controlled Smart Speaker with Amazon Alexa Built-in - Black read more
