I had a cuppa with Pricess Ann once!
Also I'm sure when I was a carer in my teens I used to go to the British Buldogs granny.......she had dolls of them in her cabinet!! One proud grandma she was!

Me and my Family had dinner a couple of times with Kate Moss's grandma a few years ago (poor love has died now) and 2 years ago I bought a dishwasher off Pete Dohertys mum who was a neighbour in Germany. Funny coincidence as now both the families are connected
