Buckingham Palace THE PALACE There are two addresses in London that the whole world knows. One is 10 Downing Street, where the Prime Minister lives. The other is Buckingham Palace. This famous palace, first built in 1703, is in the very centre of London. It is two places, not one. It is family house, where children play and grow up. It is also the place where presidents, king, and politicians go to meet the Queen. Buckingham Palace is like small town, with police station, two post offices, hospital, bar, two sports cubs, disco, cinema, and swimming pool. There are 600 rooms, and three miles of red carpet. Two men work full-time to look after the 300 clocks. About 700 people work in the Palace. THE QUEENS DAY When the Queen gets up in the morning, seven people look after her. One starts her bath, one prepares her clothes, and one feeds the Royal dogs. She has eight or nine dogs, and they sleep in their own bedroom near the Queens bedroom. Two people bring her breakfast. She has coffee from Harrods, toast, and eggs. Every day for fifteen minutes, piper plays Scottish music outside her room and the Queen reads The Times. Every Tuesday evening, she meets the Prime Minister. They talk about world news and have drink, perhaps gin and tonic or whisky. AN INVITATION TO THE PALACE When the Queen invites lot of people for dinner, it takes three days to prepare the table and three days to do the washing-up. Everybody has five glasses: one for red wine, one for white wine, one for water, one for port, and one for liqueur. During the first and second courses, the Queen speaks to the person on her left and then she speaks to the person on her right for the rest of the meal. When the Queen finishes her food, everybody finishes, and it is time for the next course. Comprehension check 1. Are the sentences true (3) or false (x)?
