  1. We’ve never quite got round to taking a trip to Istanbul and it’s too short notice to get things organised for this year. Certainly worth putting this one in the diary for 2023.

  2. The palace has obviously put some romantic thinking into this one. With all the travel restrictions still in place, I hope that they get a decent number of couples able to savour the romance.
