I recently came across a YouTube video that had a shot of Her Majesty the Queen writing with a fountain pen. I have heard that she uses fountain pens exclusively, and I've also heard Parker 51 and Conway Stewart pens mentioned as being used,. Quite curious as to which pen this one could be. Any ideas, anyone? Aside #1: The cap could probably tell us more, but this is the only shot available. Aside #2: Quite prudent of her to remove that white glove before writing. Wonder if that lesson was learnt the heard way!
According to The Daily Telegraph, the Queen's Speech is being delayed - not because of the chaos in the much-diminished Conservative Party, but because it takes SO LONG for the ink to dry on the fancy archival paper (referred to as "goatskin") the speech is printed on. So, I wondered if anyone has used this stuff? Does it take forever for ink to dry on it?
