Her Majesty the Queen to Meet Tracey Emin During Her Visit to Margate Tomorrow.

I wonder what they will say to each other, perhaps the queen will be adding one of Tracey Emin’s works to the royal collection.

Her Majesty The Queen and Tracey Emin Viewing Auguste Rodin’s “The Kiss” at the Turner Contemporary Margate.  

I won’t be there so I have added a quick sketch of the event.


Media coverage of the royal visit is a bit sparse yet, the only local newspaper that seems to understand hoe to use the internet enough to link up the social networking a bit is the KM Group and this is what they have put together, the page may be a bit slow to open but has video footage and pictures of the visit

After rather letting us down with the publicity about the queen’s visit the council have finally started to tweet about it, see!/ThanetCouncil in fact so excited have they got that they have put some pictures on see

Still nothing on their three tourism sites or their Facebook wall though. 

More videos here

Simon Moores has put up some high quality pictures at

Oddly enough the Turner Contemporary, another organisation that doesn’t seem to have grasped how to use the internet to publicise events that well have been tweeting away today, see!/TCMargate although they seem not to have mastered the visual side of this yet, so no piccies. they have also managed something on facebook see    


  1. I've never seen the main streets of Margate looking so clean as today, with dozens of workers removing every fag butt, stray leaf & weed! Shame that TDC don't just leave it as it is & tell her "I don't know how many times I have to say this, but there's no money!"

  2. Did I read it right, the old queen will be in Margate town tomorrow.

  3. Don, John, this is a tad embarrassing in as much as couldn’t go to the event, but spent much of the day trying to find reasonable coverage of the event that other people had produced. Having done so I embedded it into my blog.

  4. I once had a post embedded in my blog and very painful it was too.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
