Summer Frock

When her Majesty Queen Elizabeth visited New Zealand in the 1960s, it was my job as a broadcaster to give the live description of events. My vantage point was on the main street of a small town where the queen was scheduled to pass. I carefully thought through my description of the scene, but my nervousness showed when I announced to the whole country, “And here comes her Majesty now, wearing a beautiful frummer sock!”

The Duke of Edinburgh, standing next to me, momentarily lost his composure. His snort of laughter was also broadcast to the nation.
