A bunch of shameless, diabolical, out of touch fuckwits have decided that Children in Need day is the ideal time to announce that an astonishing £369 million of public money is set to be spent on Buckingham Palace refurbishments.

Last year's Children in Need appeal, meanwhile, raised just over £37 million.

Can't help but think the day of Children in Need was a bad day for the government to announce a £369m refurb of Buckingham Palace...

The 10-year pipe-replacing and boiler-testing job is set to kick off next April, and the Treasury says the works is urgent , as Buckingham Palace is full of expensive things and houses the most famous family of scroungers in the world from time to time, so it would be such a shame for all of it to go up in smoke.

We take the responsibility that comes with receiving these public funds extremely seriously indeed, said Tony Johnstone-Burt, a person who s probably quite proud of being known as the Master of the Queen's Household.

Equally, we are convinced that by making this investment in Buckingham Palace now we can avert a much more costly and potentially catastrophic building failure in the years to come.

A Domino's driver attempted to deliver four cheeseburger pizzas to one Elizabeth, residing in Buckingham Palace, and was surprised to find out someone was pulling his leg.

The order was called in to Domino's London Victoria, with cash on delivery to cover the £46-worth of grub.

At no point in the ordering process was this considered suspect, which resulted in the driver literally pulling up to the gates of Buckingham Palace and having to be taken to one side by security as they radioed the palace to double check whether Liz had indeed had a hankering for some takeaway.

Someone was playing silly buggers, and the befuddled driver went on his way.

"We’ve always suspected the Queen was a secret Domino’s fan and the order to Buckingham Palace almost confirmed our suspicions," Domino's store manager, Zsuzsanna Queiser, told The Sun.

"We didn’t quite make it past the gate, but the four large cheeseburger pizzas seemed to go down pretty well with the police officers on duty.

Royal wedding cakes are usually grand affairs, elaborately decorated and stretching over multiple tiers.

But Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are instead opting for a light, organic lemon elderflower cake by food writer and pastry chef Claire Ptak, owner of an east London bakery.

The confectionery masterpiece – which took five weeks to make – was covered in cream and intricate white icing and decorated with up to 900 delicate sugar-paste flowers.

It was centre-stage at the Buckingham Palace reception held in the picture gallery.

William and Kate saved the top two tiers of the cake for their future children’s christenings.

It was made by McVities to a recipe the firm received from Buckingham Palace kitchen chefs.

Letters sent by Princess Diana to a Buckingham Palace official, including one revealing that Prince Harry was "constantly in trouble" at boarding school, sold for thousands of dollars at a U.K. auction Thursday.

The six handwritten notes were sent to Buckingham Palace Head Steward Cyril Dickman in the 1980s and 90s and offer a fascinating glimpse into the life of the princess.

The boys are well and enjoying boarding school although Harry is constantly in trouble!

Princess Diana wrote, in one letter, dated Oct. 17, 1992.

We are off to Korea in November so a good place to do Christmas Shopping!

You have to give the RAF some credit with how much it's done to try make sure people can enjoy today's 100th anniversary Flyby, even if they aren't in London.

Yesterday we published the route of the flyby itself, which is due to fly over Buckingham Palace at 1pm, and there's an app that will let everyone see it in augmented reality regardless of where they are.

Now it's released an animation that shows all the different routes the 25 types of aircraft will take before and after the event.

It's not hugely detailed, and doesn't show which aircraft is which, but you can see they're coming from all over England and meeting up just west of Suffolk.

Apparently they're due to form up at 12.45, before heading south west towards London.

The first aircraft are set to reach Buckingham palace at 1pm, with the flyby lasting nine whole minutes.

Tomorrow is the day that's been set aside to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the RAF, which is 100 days after its official 100th birthday.

Clearly doing something big to celebrate on the 1st April was a risky endeavour.

So there's going to be a big parade, and flyby involving 25 different RAF aircraft that will look suspiciously like a military coup given what's going on in the government today.

While the main event is happening at Buckingham Palace, you might be able to see something from your own house - just as long as you live along the flight route.

So if you live between Ipswich and Central London, you have a pretty good shot of seeing something, though exactly what will your exact location.

North West London will also get to see something too, with some of the aircraft heading off to the RAF Museum near Colindale.

An Uber driver arrested after attempting to attack police outside Buckingham Palace with a Samurai sword has been found not guilty of preparing terrorist acts following a trial at the Old Bailey.

Mohiussunnath Chowdhury, 27, from Luton, targeted police during the August 2017 incident but denied the attack was terror-related, insisting instead it was an attempt at “suicide by cop”.

Jurors were unanimous in acquitting Chowdhury of one allegation of preparing acts of terrorism after a retrial at the Old Bailey.

Chowdhury bit his lip, raised his eyebrows and then saluted the jurors after they spent 11 hours and 36 minutes considering the verdict.

A woman in the public gallery cried “It should never have happened” moments after the verdict.

The court heard previously how he was overpowered and detained by officers after he launched out of his Toyota Prius car brandishing the sword.

If you're not going to make it to Buckingham Palace to watch the Royal Air Force (RAF) centenary flypast on Tuesday, there's now an app to help you watch it in augmented reality from wherever you are in the world.

The RAF100 AR Flypast app features 35 different types of aircraft spanning the RAF's entire 100-year history, including icons like the Spitfire and the Red Arrows, all the way up to the modern F35 Lightning.

Available on Android and iOS, the app uses augmented reality to put the planes in the sky above your head at any time, creating your own personal flypast.

There will also be a 3D visualisation of the full fleet being used on Tuesday, so that you can watch the flypast at any time, wherever you are.

"The RAF100 Flypast app allows users to see the historic formation flypast over Buckingham Palace in the comfort of your garden, at school or even in your front room," said air commodore Chris Jones.

"Users will be able to find out about the history of each plane through the App, as well as being able to create and collect their own planes.

THE University of Huddersfield's Professor Xiangqian Jiang - known to her colleagues as Jane - has received the Damehood conferred on her in the 2017 Queen's Birthday Honours.

The Chinese-born scientist, a world-leading researcher in the field of metrology, was formally created a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

It is the latest stage in a journey that has taken her from self-education in Chairman Mao Tse-Tung's China, where she was compelled to work on a production line, to academic eminence in her adopted UK.

Dame Jane's roles at the University of Huddersfield have included research director of its Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT) and Director of its EPSRC Centre of Innovative Manufacturing in Advanced Metrology.

She is now the director of the £40 million Future Metrology Hub that is based within the CPT.

Its mission is to develop new technologies and universal methods that will integrate measurement science with design and production processes, to aid the development of digital, high-value manufacturing.

The Queen gets fine dining almost any day she wants — but what does she like?

Business Insider got the answer from the man making her lunch on Thursday.

The menu includes salmon, lamb and orange tart, and was approved by the palace.

The Queen will take lunch on board HMS Queen Elizabeth during a naval ceremony.

Queen Elizabeth II gets to go to a lot of banquets, state dinners, and other grand occasions where fine dining is de rigueur.

The tastes of the world's longest-serving head of state are the subject of extensive speculation — so we found out the truth behind what she favours from the man who will prepare her lunch today.

If your Facebook messages, Instagram posts, and Twitter musings have always had an air of royalty about them, then you could be the perfect fit for a new job at Buckingham Palace.

The U.K.’s royal family is looking for someone to help manage its online presence to keep fans up to date with everything the Queen and her offspring get up to, though it’s likely that some shenanigans won’t make the cut.

The royal household has been operating a bunch of social media accounts for years now, but the suggestion that the U.K.’s 93-year-old head of state spends her time squinting at a smartphone posting Facebook updates and pithy tweets seems like a stretch.

The successful applicant will take on the role of Digital Communications Officer and be paid around 30,000 British pounds ($38,000) for their troubles.

A whopping 33 days of paid annual leave is also part of the package, and you’ll have an office address the envy of many: Buckingham Palace.

According to the job posting, the role will involve finding “new ways to maintain the Queen’s presence in the public eye and on the world stage” via social media and other online platforms, while daily activities will include managing and overseeing the daily flow of royal-related news on those platforms, at the same time as highlighting the role and work of the royal family.
