Out and about. A tipster spotted the king of talkback getting in touch with other royalty far from home last week:

“We went to see the Queen, or at least Kristin Scott-Thomas as the Queen in The Audience at the Apollo in London Wednesday last week.  We were seated at the end of the row quite near the door when the attractive usher was greeted warmly by an unseen person and then in walked Alan Jones.  Solo, a few rows ahead in the centre of the stalls.  We could only guess that he’d come to take notes about how to interview his Prime Minister … anyway, it obviously did not do it for him as he did not return after the interval.”
