Background: London's costermonger Royalty attended the Mansion House, Nov. 7, for a rare but colourful ceremony. The Lord Mayor of London presented each Pearly King, Queen and princess with ostrich feathers - an anonymous gift form Australia.
The feathers are hard to obtain nowadays. Most of them are family heirlooms and many of them are looking tired and floppy.
Now London's other Royal Family will look more regal on those rare occasion when they make public appearances.
