    With cocktail aperitifs for everyone upon their arrival, an evening of cookery tuition by Michelin star chef, Adam Gray, was then in store for the lucky 13.

    HRH Prince Charles meets the directors of British Standard at the Ideal Home Show

    (This is not a caption competition)

    A suitable and topical subject with which to launch our new journal – The visit of HRH Prince Charles to the British Standard display at the Ideal Home Show. Suitable, because the idea for our new range originated with a question of HRH’s when he inspected the Plain English kitchen installed in his ‘Natural House’ project the previous year: “How can we get this to the people..?” – The ‘no frills’ British Standard kitchen was born.

    HRH seemed to enjoy his visit to the stand, relieved, perhaps to find something at the show that wasn’t made of plastic.

    By coincidence, an adjacent stand had this ‘lookalike’ of the Queen to promote its bidet loos – they did not meet.
