23 June 1911 — 3 Savile Row
Friday. 23rd [June 1911]. I had hoped to see the Procession today of the K. & Queen thro’ the streets but having heard from the Dss of Somerset that I was to be at Paddington station at 12.40 in order to go down to Southampton to join Mr Loeffler’s yacht I gave up the attempt wh I afterwards regretted as I might have had time for it– However I went straight to the station at the hour appointed & met the rest of the party, the Loefflers, Duke & Dss of Somerset & Capt. Williams, their secretary—Lady Muriel & Sir Rd Paget & Mrs Watson. We travelled in a large saloon & had an excellent lunch on the way to Southampton via Reading, & got to Southampton about 5 o’cl. Drove from the station to the harbour & there were taken by Mr Loeffler’s steam launch to his fine yacht “Albion” which started for Spithead & took up the position allotted to it by the harbour authorities. It was rather cold & very windy & we feared we should have rain but it did not come. I had a splendid cabin & was most comfortable. The Albion lay amongst the yachts at a little distance from the lines of battle ships which look most imposing. We were all tired & glad of the quiet night & good rest.
