Royals secret visit

During the Queen’s visit to Arran last week, it has emerged that other members of the royal family were also around, unbeknown to the press hordes. We now know that Prince Charles, his two sons Princes William and Harry, and Mrs Camila Parker- Bowles spent the day on Holy Isle and joined the royal yacht after it had left Lochranza.

Other bits of information have also seeped out. It seems that, due to the ferry strike, 37 Special Branch cars were brought over to Arran prior to the strike and kept under security at Brodick Castle.
